Cookies Policy

General introduction:

We take the protection of your personal data very seriously and want you to feel secure when visiting our website. Our data protection practice follows in particular the requirements of the EU General Data Protection Regulation. At this point, we would like to inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the processing of your personal data. We would like to point out in advance that this data protection declaration only refers to our websites and does not apply to websites of third parties to which we refer in the form of links.

Subject of protection:

The subject of protection is personal data. This is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter “data subject”). This includes, above all, information that allows conclusions to be drawn about your identity (e.g. details such as name, postal address, e-mail address and telephone number).


Technical requirements:

In order for you to connect to our website, your browser transmits certain data to our website’s web server. This is a technical necessity so that the information you have called up can be made available by the website. To make this possible, your IP address, the date and time of your request and the type of operating system you are using are stored and used for a maximum of 30 days. We reserve the right to store this data for a limited period of time in order to protect our legitimate interests, so that in the event of unauthorised access or an attempt to intentionally harm us via this route, we can derive personal data (Art. 6 Para. 1 f DSGVO). The data will only be stored or forwarded by us for this purpose and for no other purpose without informing you in advance and asking for your permission. (Please compare the data with the actually stored data!!)



Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer or mobile device via your browser, e.g. to recognise whether you repeatedly visit websites from the same device or browser. In general, we use cookies to analyse interest in our website, as well as to improve the user-friendliness of our website. In principle, however, you can also visit our website without cookies.

Cookies can usually be deactivated or removed with the help of tools that are available in most commercial browsers. The settings must be defined separately and individually for each browser you use. Different browsers offer different functions and options for this purpose.

In order to be able to use our website fully and comfortably, you should accept those cookies that enable the use of certain functions or make the use more comfortable. You can see the purpose for which the cookies we use are used and for how long they are stored under the following overview:
Through the notice text on our cookie banner you will, when accessing our website, be informed about the use of these cookies and accept them by their further use, or by clicking on the “OK” button.

Cookie types:

To explain the most common types of cookies in a little more detail, we have explained them below for your understanding:

1. Session Cookies (Session Cookies)
Session cookies allow users and the changes they make within a website to be recognised. They allow the website to track their movements across individual pages so that information that has already been entered/saved does not have to be entered/saved again. An example of this is shopping baskets in web shops. The session cookie stores the selected products in the shopping basket so that it contains the correct items when payment is made at the checkout. Session cookies are deleted when you log out or lose their validity once the session has automatically expired.

2. Permanent or Protocol Cookies.
A permanent or protocol cookie stores user information and settings on the user’s computer for the period of time specified in the expiry date. This results in faster and more convenient access, as you do not have to re-enter language settings or login details, for example. The cookie is automatically deleted at the end of the storage period.

3. third-party cookies.
Third-party cookies generally have no influence on the use of the site, as they do not originate from the website operator. They serve the purpose, for example, of collecting information for advertising, customised content and web statistics and passing this on to the respective third-party provider.

4. Tracking cookies.
Tracking cookies are special text files that open up the possibility of collecting data about the behaviour of the Internet user. The purpose of this is to obtain information about the user’s main interests in order to be able to launch tailored advertising offers, for example. Tracking cookies are therefore not only set during registration, but automatically when the website is visited. The above exemplary presentation of the most common forms of cookies is intended to give you a global overview of this form of collection. These explanations do not claim to be complete. As a result of technical IT developments, it can be assumed that further types of cookies will be developed in the course of time. Please check our data protection declaration for the latest changes at regular intervals before using our website.


Users of our contact forms:

Our website contains contact forms that can be used to contact us electronically. To ensure a secure transmission of your data, we use a state of the art encrypted connection with TLS certificate during transmission. By clicking the “Send” button, you consent to the transmission of the data entered in the input mask to us. We store your name and e-mail address and, if applicable, other information provided by you in order to be able to contact you and answer your enquiry in the best possible way. On the one hand, this enables us to offer you the service you expect from us and, on the other hand, it gives us the opportunity to continuously improve ourselves (Art. 6 para. 1 f DSGVO.


Online applications

Your data is collected for the purpose of filling vacancies. The collection is carried out for and by BauWatch Projekt Service GmbH via the application form. In particular, this involves the following data:
Name, telephone number, e-mail, information on your application motivation, application documents submitted by you (letter of application, CV, references, certificates or similar).

By entering your data and uploading your application documents, you consent to the processing. If no employment relationship is established, your application will be deleted after 6 months. You can revoke your consent to this at any time.

The data is transmitted via a secure connection. As a precaution, we would like to point out that the transmission of application data which is not sent to us electronically via the application form may not be secure. Your personal application data is collected and processed exclusively for the purpose of filling vacancies at BauWatch. As a matter of principle, your data will only be forwarded to the internal departments and specialist departments of our company responsible for the specific application procedure. Your personal application data will not be passed on to other companies without your prior express consent. Your application data will not be used for any other purpose or passed on to third parties.

If your application is followed by the conclusion of an employment contract, your transmitted data may be stored by us in your personnel file for the purpose of the usual organisational and administrative process in compliance with the relevant legal regulations.

Your personal application data will be deleted automatically after six months if your job application is rejected. This does not apply if legal regulations prevent deletion, if further storage is necessary for the purpose of providing evidence or if you have expressly consented to longer storage. An example of this is filling the position at a later date. However, this requires your consent, which you can also revoke at any time.
