Cookies cannot execute programs or transmit viruses to your computer.

Essential cookies do not require your consent and are processed by us in accordance with Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest in this context is the error-free, optimal use and presentation of our website.

This website uses the following types of cookies. Their scope and how they function are explained below.

Transient cookies

The storage period depends on the legal record-keeping obligations; your data will be deleted once the purpose no longer applies.

4. Information for employment candidates

If you apply to our company for an open position or send an unsolicited application to bewerbung@hevert.de or to our mailing address, we will require and store personal data from you, which includes the following:

  • Basic data such as title, first and last names, etc.

  • All application documents such as cover letter, resume, personal photo, school transcripts, employment references, and other proof of qualification

You can also send us other data and files on an optional basis in order to facilitate contact with you.

If any information is missing for the application procedure, we may request this from you separately if needed for our decision-making purposes.

Purpose and legal basis of processing
The data you provide will be processed in-house to complete the application procedure, to review your eligibility for the position, and to select the candidates.
The primary legal basis of this data processing is Art. 88 GDPR in conjunction with Section 26 GDPR (new) (data processing for the purposes of the employment relationship) and Art. 6 (1) b) GDPR (pre-contractual measures and contract performance).

Note on data usage and storage
We are committed to handling your personal data confidentially as soon as the application process begins. The data you transmit will be processed only for the aforementioned purposes. At all times, only those persons who require your data for the proper implementation of the application procedure will have access to it. Your data will not be shared with unauthorized third parties.

Storage period
We will delete your data six months after the job vacancy has been filled unless you file a claim in accordance with the Equal Treatment Act (Gleichbehandlungsgesetz (AGG) regarding the employment decision. In this case, your data will be deleted after the proceedings on your claim are complete. In the event that we wish to keep your data on file for a longer period of time, we will not do so without your consent.

At any time, you can withdraw part or all of your application. At any time, you can also request that all or some of the data and files you have transmitted be deleted or modified unless prohibited by a legal regulation. You also have the right to withdraw your prior consent to processing of the personal data you have sent for your application at any time with future effect. To do so, simply send an e-mail to bewerbung(at)hevert.de.

For our jobs portal, we use services by Haufe-Umantis AG. We have chosen this provider carefully and concluded a contract with it to process data on our behalf.

The data you enter and the documents you attach here, along with all processing steps associated with your application, will be stored in a secure manner on a server of this provider in Germany and Switzerland. Only authorized persons have access to the data stored by this provider.

5. Newsletter / Press mailing list

By giving your consent, you can subscribe to our newsletter, which provides updates on our latest interesting offers. The goods and services that are marketed will be listed in the relevant declaration of consent.

For newsletter subscriptions, we use the double opt-in procedure. This means that after you register, we will send you an e-mail to the address you have provided in order to request your confirmation that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm registration within 24 hours, your information will be blocked and deleted automatically after one month. We also store the IP address you have used, along with the time of registration and confirmation. The purpose of this procedure is to document your registration and investigate any misuse of your personal data if applicable.

You must provide only your e-mail address in order to receive the newsletter. The disclosure of other, specially denoted data is voluntary and is used to personalize communications with you. Following your registration, we will store your e-mail address for the purposes of sending the newsletter. The legal basis is Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR, your consent.

You can opt out of the newsletter at any time and unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can unsubscribe at any time by clicking in the link in the newsletter e-mail, by using this website form, by sending an e-mail to newsletter(at)hevert.de or sending a message to the contact information under the imprint/legal notice.

Please note that when we send the newsletter, we analyze your user behavior. For this analysis, the e-mails we send contain web beacons/tracking pixels, i.e. 1 x 1 pixel images which are stored on our website. For the purposes of analysis, we associate the data listed under 1. and the web beacons with your e-mail address and an individual ID. The links in the newsletter also contain this ID. The data is collected in pseudononymous form only, meaning that the IDs are not associated with your other personal data and your personal identity cannot be detected directly.

You can opt out of this tracking at any time by clicking on the separate link that is provided in every e-mail or notifying us through other contact methods. The information will be stored as long as you subscribe to the newsletter. After you unsubscribe, we will store the data for statistical purposes only and in anonymous form.

Our newsletter is sent by provider CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Schafjückenweg 2, Germany, 26180 Rastede, Tel.: +49 4402 97390-00, www.cleverreach.com. Processing takes place in accordance with the provisions of Art. 28 GDPR. A data processing contract has been concluded with the provider pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR.

6. Tracking

Below is a description of how your personal data is processed with the help of tracking technologies to analyze and optimize our services, as well as for marketing purposes.

a) The use of third-party services for statistical purposes

The legal basis for using all web analytics tools listed in this paragraph is based exclusively on your consent under Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR. The analysis of user behavior via tracking helps us to assess the effectiveness of our services, to optimize these services, to adapt them to user needs, and to fix any errors. It also serves to collect statistics on the use of our services (reach, frequency of use, user browsing behavior) on the basis of uniform, standard procedures, and to obtain benchmark figures from the general market. If the analytics tool used also serves other purposes or if we use it for our additional interests, we will inform you of this directly in the explanations for each analytics tool.

Google Analytics

The controller in charge of processing has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function) into this website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics means the collection, reporting, and analysis of website visitor behavior. A web analytics service covers such data as the original website that directed a data subject to another website (“referrer”), which other pages of the website were accessed, and the frequency and duration of a visit to a particular page of the website. Web analytics is primarily used to optimize a website and for a cost/benefit analysis of internet advertising.

The Google Analytics component is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

The controller in charge of processing adds “gat._anonymizeIp” to the tracking code for web analytics using Google Analytics. This extension shortens and anonymizes the IP address of the data subject’s internet connection if our website is accessed from a member state of the European Union or another country under the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze web traffic on our site. Google uses the data and information collected for such purposes for analyzing the use of our website in order to compile online reports that shows us the activities on our web pages, and in order to perform additional services that relate to the use of our website.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the IT system of the data subject. The definition of cookies has already been provided above. Setting cookies allows Google to analyze the use of our website. Each time a page of this website that is operated by the controller and that contains a Google Analytics component is accessed, the web browser on the IT system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the Google Analytics component to transmit data for the purposes of online analysis to Google. With this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which helps Google to determine the origin of the visitors and clicks, among other things, and to subsequently generate commission statements.

The cookies are used to store personal information such as time of access, location from where access originated, and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject. During each visit to our web pages, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America (USA) and processed there. Google may, in certain cases, forward the personal data collected by this technical procedure to third parties. Because the Privacy Shield has been invalidated, at present an adequate level of data protection in third countries cannot be guaranteed (see the European Court of Justice decision - EuGH July 16, 2020). Personal data can be processed only with your consent under Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR.

Alternatively or in addition thereto, concluding the EU standard data protection clauses issued by the European Commission with the receiving party can provide sufficient guarantees under Art. 46 (2) c) GDPR and an adequate level of data protection. Copies of the EU standard data protection clauses are available from the website of the European Commission under this link. We have concluded the standard data protection clauses with Google for this purpose.

As described above, you can prevent our website from placing cookies and permanently prohibit them at any time by adjusting your browser setting. Adjusting your setting in this manner would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the data subject’s IT system. Furthermore, a cookie previously placed by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the web browser or other software program.

You can also object to and prevent the collection of the data generated by Google Analytics as well as to the processing of this data by Google. To do so, you must download and install a browser add-on under the link tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on notifies Google Analytics via JavaScript that no information about the visits to websites can be transmitted to Google Analytics. Google considers the installation of the browser add-on to be an opt-out. If your computer's hard drive is deleted, formatted or newly installed, the browser add-on must be reinstalled in order to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the data subject or another person under their sphere of influence, there is the option to reinstall or reactivate the browser add-on.

Processing is pursuant to your consent (Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR). If you have granted consent, you can withdraw it at any time in the cookie settings.
Google has joint controllership with Hevert-Arzneimittel GmbH & Co. KG. There is an agreement for this purpose that defines the joint responsibilities for compliance with the obligations under the GDPR regarding joint controllership, as set forth in the referring terms of service. Under this agreement, Google Ireland is responsible for the fulfillment of data subjects’ rights under Art. 15-20 of the GDPR with regard to the personal data that is stored. The information required under Art. 13 (1) a) and b) GDPR, information on the processing of personal data, the relevant legal basis, and the rights of data subjects can be found in Google Ireland’s privacy information under https://privacy.google.com/businesses/gdprcontrollerterms/ . The use of Google is subject to the applicable terms of service.

Google Signals

In addition to Google Analytics, this website also uses the web analytics service Google Signals by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”). With Google Signals, Google provides us with reports on cross-device user numbers and on various user groups, which are based on different combinations of devices used. For this purpose, Google gathers data from users who are signed on to their Google account and have turned on the “Ads Personalization” option in their settings. Please note that is option is turned on by default, so in order to opt out you must turn it off if you do not want personalized advertising. Google Signals is used only with activated IP anonymization. This means that the IP address of users within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area are shortened. This makes it impossible to identify the person to whom the IP address belongs. Thus, we cannot identify a specific user. However, Google is able to use personalized cross-device tracking of your browsing behavior if you are signed on to your Google account. According to our information, Google will store this data for a period of 26 months.

Google also processes your personal data in the USA. Because the Privacy Shield has been invalidated, at present an adequate level of data protection in third countries cannot be guaranteed (see the European Court of Justice decision - EuGH July 16, 2020). Personal data can be processed only with your consent under Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR.

Alternatively or in addition thereto, concluding the EU standard data protection clauses issued by the European Commission with the receiving party can provide sufficient guarantees under Art. 46 (2) c) GDPR and an adequate level of data protection. Copies of the EU standard data protection clauses are available from the website of the European Commission under this link. We have concluded the standard data protection clauses with Google for this purpose.

Processing is pursuant to your consent (Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR). If you have granted consent, you can withdraw it at any time in the cookie settings and you can opt out of tracking by Google Signals by deactivating the “Ads Personalization” option in your Google account. For information, please see https://support.google.com/adspolicy/answer/143465?hl=en&ref_topic=1626336

b) Social Media

Embedded YouTube videos

The controller in charge of processing has integrated components from YouTube into this website. YouTube is an internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips at no charge and other users to view, rate, and comment on these videos, also at no charge. YouTube permits the publication of all types of videos, which is why complete films and TV shows, as well as music videos, trailers, or user-generated videos are accessible on the portal.

YouTube is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

If you wish, you can use the “YouTube button” or the share function. To do so, you must sign on to YouTube. Once you sign on, the service of the provider will be activated.

By clicking on a YouTube button on our website, you will be connected to the YouTube servers. This notifies YouTube of the website you visited. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and affiliated with your YouTube account. If you have your own YouTube account and are already signed on, you allow YouTube to affiliate your browsing behavior directly to your personal profile. This occurs even if you do not click on a YouTube video. You can prevent this identification by logging out of your account first.

YouTube and Google also process your personal data in the USA. Because the Privacy Shield has been invalidated, at present an adequate level of data protection in third countries cannot be guaranteed (see the European Court of Justice decision - EuGH July 16, 2020). Processing is pursuant to your consent (Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR). If you have granted consent, you can withdraw it at any time in the cookie settings.

Alternatively or in addition thereto, concluding the EU standard data protection clauses issued by the European Commission with the receiving party can provide sufficient guarantees under Art. 46 (2) c) GDPR and an adequate level of data protection. Copies of the EU standard data protection clauses are available from the website of the European Commission under this link. We have concluded the standard data protection clauses with Google for this purpose.

Google has joint controllership with Hevert-Arzneimittel GmbH & Co. KG. There is an agreement for this purpose that defines the joint responsibilities for compliance with the obligations under the GDPR regarding joint controllership, as set forth in the referring terms of service. Under this agreement, Google Ireland is responsible for the fulfillment of data subjects’ rights under Art. 15-20 of the GDPR with regard to the personal data that is stored. The information required under Art. 13 (1) a) and b) GDPR, information on the processing of personal data, the relevant legal basis, and the rights of data subjects can be found in Google Ireland’s privacy information under https://privacy.google.com/businesses/gdprcontrollerterms/ . The use of Google is subject to the applicable terms of service.
Further information about YouTube is available at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about.

For more information about data privacy and Google services please see: https://policies.google.com/privacy

c) The use of third-party services to enhance our marketing measures

DoubleClick by Google

This website uses the DoubleClick online marketing tool by Google. The controller in charge of processing has integrated services of Google Remarketing into this website. Google Remarketing is a function of Google AdWords that allows a company to display ads to those web users who previously visited the company's website. Thus, the integration of Google Remarketing allows a company to generate user-based advertising and show the web users ads that are relevant to their interests.

Google Remarketing / Google AdWords is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

The purpose of Google Remarketing is to integrate advertising relevant to user interests. Google Remarketing allows us to display ads using the Google ad network or other websites that are tailored to the individual needs and interests of internet users.

Google Remarketing places a cookie on the IT system of the data subject. By placing the cookie, Google allows the recognition of a visitor to our website if this person then accesses websites which are also members of the Google ad network. Each time a website that integrates the service of Google Remarketing is accessed, the browser of the data subject automatically identifies itself to Google. During this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address or browsing behavior of the user, which Google uses to display ads relevant to their interests, among other things.

Using the cookie, personal information, such as the IP address or the websites visited, is stored and transmitted to Google in the USA and processed.
Because the Privacy Shield has been invalidated, at present an adequate level of data protection in third countries cannot be guaranteed (see the European Court of Justice decision - EuGH July 16, 2020). Personal data can be processed only with your consent under Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR.

Alternatively or in addition thereto, concluding the EU standard data protection clauses issued by the European Commission with the receiving party can provide sufficient guarantees under Art. 46 (2) c) GDPR and an adequate level of data protection. Copies of the EU standard data protection clauses are available from the website of the European Commission under this link. We have concluded the standard data protection clauses with Google for this purpose.

As described above, you can block cookies from our website and permanently prohibit them from being placed at any time by adjusting your browser setting. Adjusting your setting in this manner would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on your computer. Furthermore, a cookie previously placed by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the web browser or other software program.

There is also the option to opt out of the interest-based advertising by Google. To do so, the data subject must access each of the web browsers they use from the link www.google.de/settings/ads and adjust the desired settings there.

More information and the applicable data privacy rules of Google can be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy

Processing is pursuant to your consent (Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR). If you have granted consent, you can withdraw it at any time in the cookie settings.

Facebook Custom Audience

The website also uses the “Custom Audiences” remarketing function of Facebook Inc. (“Facebook”). This means that users of the website will see interest-based advertising ("Facebook Ads") when visiting the Facebook social network or other websites that use the procedure. This is in our interest of showing you advertisements that may be relevant to you. The legal basis for processing is your consent (Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR.

Due to the marketing tools used, your browser will automatically connect directly to Facebook's servers. We have no influence on the scope or further use of the data that is collected by Facebook through the use of this tool and therefore are notifying you on the basis of our knowledge: Due to the integration of Facebook Custom Audiences, Facebook will be notified that you have accessed our website or that you have clicked on one of our ads. If you are registered for a service of Facebook, Facebook can associate the visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Facebook or have not logged in, it is possible for the provider to determine and store your IP address and other identifying characteristics.

The “Facebook Custom Audiences” function has been activated on this page. You can deactivate the function here: The function “Facebook Custom Audiences” can be disabled for users who have logged in by going to https://www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=ads#.

Facebook also processes your personal data in the USA. Because the Privacy Shield has been invalidated, at present an adequate level of data protection in third countries cannot be guaranteed (see the European Court of Justice decision - EuGH July 16, 2020). Personal data can be processed only with your consent under Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR.

Facebook Ireland has a joint controllership with Hevert-Arzneimittel GmbH & Co. KG. There is an agreement for this purpose that defines the joint responsibilities for compliance with the obligations under the GDPR regarding joint controllership, as set forth in the referring terms of service. Under this agreement, Facebook Ireland is responsible for the fulfillment of data subjects’ rights under Art. 15–20 of the GDPR with regard to the personal data that is stored. The information required under Art. 13 (1) a) and b) GDPR, information on the processing of personal data, the relevant legal basis, and the rights of data subjects can be found in Facebook Ireland’s privacy information under https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy . The use of Facebook is subject to the applicable terms of service for Facebook.

The standard data protection clauses have also been agreed with Facebook.

Use of ScorecardResearch

This website uses the plugin ScorecardResearch of Full Circle Studies Inc., a subsidiary of comScore Inc. domiciled at 11950 Democracy Drive, Reston, VA 20190, Washington DC, USA. By analyzing general browsing patterns and conducting surveys, ScorecardResearch can give companies a clearer idea of what audiences like and dislike, thereby helping companies provide products and services that are more customized to consumer needs.

ScorecardResearch collects data primarily through the use of web tags. A web tag is a code that is deployed by partners on their websites and collects information about general user traffic. As a rule, companies use web tags on the internet to learn about visits to their website. The ScorecardResearch web tag also places a cookie, i.e. a small text file that is stored on your computer. ScorecardResearch uses a combination of web tags and cookies, which helps websites count how many visitors have looked at the website or various portions of a site.

We use ScorecardResearch for marketing and optimization purposes, particularly to analyze the use of our website and to improve certain functions and offers, as well as the user experience, on a continuous basis. The statistical analysis of user patterns helps us improve our offers and make them more appealing to you, the user. The legal basis for processing is your consent (Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR.

ScorecardResearch also processes your personal data in the USA. Because the Privacy Shield has been invalidated, at present an adequate level of data protection in third countries cannot be guaranteed (see the European Court of Justice decision - EuGH July 16, 2020). Therefore, personal data can be processed only with your consent under Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR.

Alternatively or in addition thereto, concluding the EU standard data protection clauses issued by the European Commission with the receiving party can provide sufficient guarantees under Art. 46 (2) c) GDPR and an adequate level of data protection. Copies of the EU standard data protection clauses are available from the website of the European Commission under this link. We have concluded the standard data protection clauses with ScoreCardResearch for this purpose.

There are numerous ways to opt out of participation in this tracking procedure:

a) adjusting your browser settings, i.e. by refusing third-party cookies;

b) deactivating the ScorecardResearch plugin by setting an opt-out cookie at http://www.scorecardresearch.com/preferences.aspx?newlanguage=1. Please note that this setting will be deleted once you delete your cookies.

d) Other services

Google Maps

We use the services of Google Maps on this website. Google Maps is operated by Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). This enables us to show you interactive maps directly on the website and offers you convenient access to the map function.

For more information about how Google processes data, please see Google's data privacy policy. You can also adjust your personal data privacy settings there in the Safety Center. Complete instructions on how to manage your own data in relation to Google products is available here.

The legal basis for the integration of Google Maps and the relevant data transfer to Google is your consent (Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR). If you block access, you may not have full access to certain functions on the website.
