2. Data we collect

2.1 General Data and Information

The website of Medicarrera collects a series of general data and information when you visit our website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files.

What information do we collect from you?

The information we collect may include the following:

  • the browser types and versions used,
  • the operating system used by the accessing system,
  • the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers),
    the sub-websites,
  • the date and time of access to our website,
  • an Internet protocol address (IP address),
  • the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and
  • any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

Why do we collect your information and what do we use it for?

When using these general data and information, Medicarrera does not draw any conclusions about you as a data subject. Rather, this information is needed to:

  • deliver the content of our website correctly,
  • optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement,
  • ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and
  • provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack.

Therefore, Medicarrera analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by you.

2.2 Data you provide to us

A. Registration on our website


You have the possibility to register on MediCarrera’s website and when you do we will ask for some personal information.

What information do we collect from you?

When you register we will ask for person information, such as your name, email address, and phone number. In general, which personal data are transmitted to us  is determined by the respective input mask used for the registration. By registering on our website, the IP address—assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by you as a data subject—date, and time of the registration are also stored.

Why do we collect your information and what do we use it for?

The personal data entered by you when you register with us are collected and stored exclusively for our internal use and for our own purposes. As controllers, we  may request transfer to one or more processors (e.g. a parcel service) that also uses personal data for an internal purpose which is attributable to MediCarrera.

The storage of the IP address, date, and time of registration data takes place against the background that this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services, and, if necessary, to make it possible to investigate committed offenses. Insofar, the storage of this data is necessary to secure MediCarrera. This data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a statutory obligation to pass on the data, or if the transfer serves the aim of criminal prosecution.

Your registration on our website, with the voluntary indication of your personal data, is intended to enable us at MediCarrera to offer you contents or services that may only be offered to registered users due to the nature of the matter in question. Registered persons are free to change the personal data specified during the registration at any time, or to have them completely deleted from our data stock.

B. Subscription to our Newsletters

Medicarrera informs its customers and business partners regularly by means of a newsletter about new job offers. On MediCarrera’s website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company’s newsletter.

What information do we collect from you?

The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data are transmitted, as well as when the newsletter is ordered from the controller.

The company’s newsletter may only be received by the data subject if the data subject has a valid email address and the data subject registers for the newsletter shipping.

A confirmation email will be sent to the e-mail address that you registered for the first time for newsletter shipping, for legal reasons, in the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation email is used to prove whether you are the owner of the email address and if it is authorized to receive the newsletter.

During the registration for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by you as a  data subject at the time of the registration, as well as the date and time of the registration.

Why do we collect your information and what do we use it for?

MediCarrera informs its customers and business partners regularly by means of a newsletter about new job offers, so, for this reason, the data collection is necessary. Furthermore, the collection of the IP address, date, and time of registration is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later date, and it, therefore, serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller.

The personal data collected as part of a registration for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by email, as long as this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a registration in question, as this could be the case in the event of modifications to the newsletter offer, or in the event of a change in technical circumstances.

There will be no transfer of personal data collected by the newsletter service to third parties. You may terminate the subscription to our newsletter at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which you have given for shipping the newsletter, may be revoked at any time should you request it. For the purpose of revocation of consent, a corresponding link is found in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on our website or to communicate this to us in a different way.

C. Newsletter-tracking

What information do we collect from you?

The newsletter of MediCarrera contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such emails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, Medicarrera may see if and when you opened an email, and which links in the email that you clicked on.

Why do we collect your information and what do we use it for?

The personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and analyzed by the controller in order to optimize the shipping of the newsletter, as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. It also allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns.

The personal data collected will not be passed on to third parties. You are at any time entitled to revoke the respective separate declaration of consent issued by means of the double-opt-in procedure. After a revocation, MediCarrera will delete these personal data. Medicarrera automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.

D. Contact Possibility via the Website

The website of Medicarrera contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our company, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (email address).

What information do we collect from you?

If you contact us at MediCarrera by email or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by you are automatically stored.

Why do we collect your information and what do we use it for?

When you contact us by email or via a contact form, the personal data that you transmit to MediCarrera on a voluntary basis are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting you. There is no transfer of this personal data to third parties.

E. Comments Function on the Blog on the Website

MediCarrera offers users the possibility to leave individual comments on individual blog contributions on a blog, which is on MediCarrera’s website. A blog is a web-based, publicly-accessible portal, through which one or more people called bloggers or web-bloggers may post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blog posts. Blog Posts may usually be commented on by third parties. The comments made in the blog of Medicarrera may also be subscribed to by third parties. In particular, there is the possibility that a commenter subscribes to the comments following his comments on a particular blog post.

What information do we collect from you?

If you leave a comment on the blog published on our website, the comments also stored and published, as well as information on the date of the commentary and on the user’s pseudonym chosen by you. In addition, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) to you as a data subject is also logged.

If you decide to subscribe to the comments in the blog, we will send an automatic confirmation email to check the double opt-in procedure as to whether the owner of the specified e-mail address decided in favour of this option. The option to subscribe to comments may be terminated at any time.

Why do we collect your information and what do we use it for?

The storage of the IP address takes place for security reasons, and in case you would violate the rights of third parties, or posts illegal content through a given comment. The storage of these personal data is, therefore, in MediCarrera’s own interest, so that we can exculpate in the event of an infringement. This collected personal data will not be passed to third parties unless such a transfer is required by law or serves the aim of the defense of MediCarrera as the data controller.

2.3 Cookies

The website of  Medicarrera uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser. Many Internet sites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited Internet sites and servers to differentiate the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, Medicarrera can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized with the user in mind. Cookies allow us, as previously mentioned, to recognize our website users. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to utilize our website. The website user that uses cookies e.g. does not have to enter access data each time the website is accessed, because this is taken over by the website, and the cookie is thus stored on the user’s computer system.

You may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If you deactivate the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.

3. Period for which the personal data will be stored

We inform you that we will keep your personal information for the period necessary to fulfil the purposes described in this privacy policy unless a longer retention period is legally permitted or required.

The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.

4. The existence of Automated Decision-making

As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.

5. Legal Basis for the Data Processing

The processing of your data with respect to the purposes described above is allowed by GDPR in accordance with the following legal bases: consent, contract, and “legitimate interests”.

  • Where we process data based on consent, we will ask for your explicit consent – that is, you have authorized, through an automated form and/or paper, your express consent to the processing of your data for certain purposes. You may withdraw your consent at any time, but that will not affect the lawfulness of the processing of your personal data prior to such withdrawal.

7. Protection and Disclosure of Your Data

7.1 Protection of Data

With the aim of safeguarding the security of your personal data, MediCarrera has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to guarantee the security of the personal data provided and protect it from its alteration, loss, misuse, disclosure, and treatments or access not authorized, as required by the regulations on the protection of personal data. However, Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection may not be guaranteed.

7.2  Data Protection for Applications and the Application Procedures

MediCarrera shall collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of the processing of the application procedure. The processing may also be carried out electronically. This is the case, in particular, if an applicant submits corresponding application documents by e-mail or by means of a web form on MediCarrera’s website. If MediCarrera concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the submitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with legal requirements. If no employment contract is concluded with the applicant by MediCarrera, the application documents shall be automatically erased two months after notification of the refusal decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of MediCarrera are opposed to the erasure. Other legitimate interest in this relation is, e.g. a burden of proof in a procedure under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

7.3 Disclosure to third parties

We may share or send your CV and related information to prospective employers and our clients. We may also share your personal information with third-party service providers that help us target specific audiences, tailor-made marketing, and improve and optimize our website.

Such employers, clients, and other third parties will usually be located inside the European Economic Area (EEA) but may be outside of the EEA.  Personal data shall not be transferred to a country or territory outside the EEA unless that country or territory ensures an adequate level of protection or the appropriate safeguards are in place for your rights and freedoms.  Before such a transfer takes place outside of the EEA, we will provide you with further information concerning this.

We will respect and protect your privacy as set out in this privacy policy. We will share your personal information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this privacy policy. And won’t sell individual information. You agree that  MediCarrera may share your personal information with third parties with your consent (express, constructive of implied), or as required by law such as to comply with subpoena, bankruptcy proceedings, or similar legal process when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect MediCarrera, the public, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request. You agree that MediCarrera may share your personal information with organizations or persons that help us fulfil our obligations or provide our services to you. MediCarrera will make efforts to ensure these parties have appropriate measures in place to protect your information and meet our obligations under the applicable privacy rules.

We reserve the right to disclose any information that we obtain through our website to appropriate governmental or regulatory authorities if required by law or any governmental agency.

8. Data Protection Provisions about the Application and Use of Social Plugins

8.1 Facebook

On this website, MediCarrera has integrated components of the enterprise Facebook. Facebook is a social network. A social network is a place for social meetings on the Internet, an online community, which usually allows users to communicate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social network may serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences, or enable the Internet community to provide personal or business-related information. Facebook allows social network users to include the creation of private profiles, upload photos, and network through friend requests.

The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, United States. If a person lives outside of the United States or Canada, the controller is the Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by MediCarrera and into which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-ins) was integrated, the web browser on the information technology system of you, the data subject, is automatically prompted to download display of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook through the Facebook component. An overview of all the Facebook Plug-ins may be accessed under https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. During the course of this technical procedure, Facebook is made aware of what specific subsite of our website that you visited.

If you are logged in on Facebook at the same time, Facebook detects with every call-up to our website by you—and for the entire duration of your stay on our Internet site—which specific subsite of our Internet page that you visited. This information is collected through the Facebook component and associated with your respective Facebook account. If you click on one of the Facebook buttons integrated into our website, e.g. the “Like” button, or if you submit a comment, then Facebook matches this information with your personal Facebook user account and stores the personal data.

Facebook always receives, through the Facebook component, information about when you visit to our website, whenever you are logged in at the same time on Facebook during the time of the call-up to our website. This occurs regardless of whether you click on the Facebook component or not. If you find such a transmission of information to Facebook undesirable, then you may prevent this by logging off from your Facebook account before visiting our website.

The data protection guideline published by Facebook, which is available at https://facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. In addition, it is explained there what setting options Facebook offers to protect your privacy. In addition, different configuration options are made available to allow the elimination of data transmission to Facebook. You may use these applications to eliminate a data transmission to Facebook.

8.2 Google Analytics (with anonymization function)

On this website, MediCarrera has integrated the component of Google Analytics (with the anonymizer function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has come (the so-called referrer), which subpages were visited, or how often and for what duration a subpage was viewed. Web analytics are mainly used for the optimization of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.

For the web analytics through Google Analytics MediCarrera uses the application “_gat. _anonymizeIp”. By means of this application your IP address of your Internet connection is abridged by Google and anonymised when accessing our websites from a Member State of the European Union or another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the traffic on our website. Google uses the collected data and information, inter alia, to evaluate the use of our website and to provide online reports, which show the activities on our websites, and to provide other services concerning the use of our Internet site for us. Google Analytics places a cookie on the your information technology system. The definition of cookies is explained above (section 1.3). With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by MediCarrera and into which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the Internet browser on your information technology system will automatically submit data through the Google Analytics component for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, the Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as your IP address, which serves Google, inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently create commission settlements.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which the access was made, and the frequency of your visits of our website. With each visit to our Internet site, such personal data, including your IP address of the Internet access, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.

You may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.

In addition, you have the possibility of objecting to a collection of data that are generated by Google Analytics, which is related to the use of this website, as well as the processing of this data by Google and the chance to preclude any such. For this purpose, you must download a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and install it. This browser add-on tells Google Analytics through a JavaScript, that any data and information about the visits of Internet pages may not be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-ons is considered an objection by Google. If your information technology system is later deleted, formatted, or newly installed, then you must reinstall the browser add-ons to disable Google Analytics. If you uninstalled, or disabled, the browser add-on, it is possible to execute the re-installation or reactivation of the browser add-ons.

Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and under http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. Google Analytics is further explained under the following Link https://www.google.com/analytics/.

8.3 Google Remarketing

On this website, the MediCarrera has also integrated Google Remarketing services. Google Remarketing is a feature of Google AdWords, which allows an enterprise to display advertising to Internet users who have previously visited the enterprise’s Internet site. The integration of Google Remarketing therefore allows MediCarrera to create user-based advertising and thus show relevant advertisements to interested Internet users.
