What data are saved and why?

Every time our website is accessed we collect the following non-personal information:

  • Browser type/version used
  • Operating system used
  • Anonymized IP-Address
  • Date and time of access
  • Data volume transmitted
  • the referrer URL (the site previously visited)
  •  website accessed
  •  confirmation of successful access

This is based on the GDPR art. 6 para. 1f) for statistical evaluations to operate and optimize the website as well as ensuring its security. The Provider reserves the right to review the log data retroactively in case that there are specific indications causing a justified suspicion of illegal use.

Handling personal data

Your data would only be saved in case that you have contacted us directly, when you are registering as a potential expert candidate or on our job alerts. The consent you give us for processing your data in this context may be revoked at any time in the future. Data collected during the registration process for potential expert candidate and Job-Alert respectively are stored until your withdrawal or deletion request.


If you contact us directly we will save all data necessary for communication as long as we need to fulfill your request to your satisfaction.

Registration as potential expert candidate

All data entered at our online-form are saved in our internal expert database, which is accessible to our own staff only. Your data will exclusively be used in our internal project development activities. Use of your data for the acquisition of any potential assignment will be first discussed with you directly by email, fax, letter or phone. We will not forward your personal information or professional history data to any third party without your prior consent.


The data submitted when registered for our “Job-Alert” will not be submitted to third party and only be used to send you our Job-Alert email. Additionally, emails are sent to inform you about circumstances (e.g. technical or legal changes) relevant for the service.

To make your registration effective we need a valid email address. We ensure ourselves the registration is made by the email owner by using the so called “double-opt-in” process. Therefore, we log the registration, sending the validation email and receiving the answer given from the validation email. No other data will be collected.
