Data protection information and Terms and Conditions of Use

GULP Solution Services GmbH & Co. KG (GULP) places particular emphasis on compliance with data protection laws. All relevant laws connected with data protection, especially the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz, BDSG), are complied with in full. Your data that are contained in our database are treated only within the guidelines set forth herein and in strict confidence. If you have questions or concerns about this policy, or if you would like to exercise the rights to which you are entitled by statute, please first get in touch with our data protection team: datenschutz-gulp-solution@gulp.de or GULP Solution Services GmbH & Co. KG, data protection, Pelikanplatz 23, D-30177 Hanover

Collection of information
Personal data
We hereby inform you that the following information is stored in our database:

  • Description of your work experience, abilities, and training
  • Contact information that makes you identifiable, e.g. your name, address, phone number, and email address
  • All attached documents, such as cover letters, certificates, letters of reference, CV, application photo

Purpose of use of data

  • Your data will be processed exclusively for the purposes of filling a vacancy for a project or assignment appointment or for a permanent placement.
  • Due to the nationwide networking and cooperation of our GULP locations, as well as the company’s affiliation with the Randstad Group, the application/placement process can involve several different offices or even companies.
  • As part of the execution of the application/placement process, your personal data may, with your consent, be transferred to our clients, but will be limited to that which is essential for the process in each case.

Data processing
Database and prematching tool

The database is managed and hosted by HR4YOU Solutions GmbH & Co. KG, D-26629 Großefehn / Timmel. The servers are maintained by HR4YOU and housed at Databurg in Frankfurt am Main.

The prematching tool is managed and hosted by textkernel B.V., Nieuwendammerkade 28A-17, NL-1022 AB Amsterdam. The servers are maintained by textkernel and housed in Amsterdam.

If we, HR4YOU, or textkernel commissions additional third parties for the purposes of maintenance, management, or data processing, we, HR4YOU, or textkernel reserves the right to transmit your data to third parties if this is necessary for the secure and trouble-free technical management of the database. We will promptly notify you if HR4YOU or textkernel outsources such services. In so doing, the statutory provisions will of course be complied with in full by all parties, and the corresponding requisite contracts for commissioned data processing will always be in place in accordance with the BDSG.

Data deletion

You may at any time revoke your consent in writing with prospective effect. Revocation simultaneously terminates the application process and triggers the timely deletion of data. Thus, project or assignment appointment or permanent placement is no longer possible.

The location responsible for your application will upon request update or process your data.

Data security

In order to obtain access to the secured area of an account, corresponding access credentials in the form of user name and password are essential. These credentials are assigned only to you personally. You are not permitted to disclose them to third parties, and you must store your password securely and keep it secret. Should you have reason to believe that third parties are in possession of your password, it must be changed immediately.

When logging in to the database, the server that you use may be identified by means of the IP address. For reasons of data security, we store such IP addresses in log files. In no event is the information stored in the log files used to identify users. It is used merely to ward off unlawful or criminal server attacks that may be directed against your data or the functioning of the database. The login protocols are deleted after seven days.

In addition, we use IP addresses in order to generate general, anonymous statistics, such as user numbers, page impressions, etc. However, traceable user profiles are not created from this information.

File attachments

It is prohibited to send us file attachments with viruses, worms, or other malware. You hereby undertake to correspondingly check your documents before sending them.

The information that you send us must be truthful. It may not infringe any copyrights, trademark rights, or other intellectual property rights, press law, general rights of third parties, or ethical principles, nor may the documents contain any criminal content. When providing a photo, document, or other information affecting the rights of third parties, it must be ensured that you are in possession of the necessary rights to do so, such as the necessary rights to use a photo (including under the German Art Copyright Act (Kunsturhebergesetz) and other copyright provisions).

Compensation of damages

If the user culpably breaches a duty incumbent upon him or her under these Terms and Conditions of Use, he or she is obligated to compensate GULP for the damages and expenses it incurs, as well as to indemnify and release GUP from third-party claims for compensation of damages and expenses that were caused by the breach. This also applies where the damage is caused by others, provided that this is attributable to the user. The damage to be compensated also covers, in particular, the reasonable costs that may be incurred by GULP for legal defence. All farther-reaching rights of GULP, as well as its claims to compensation of damages, remain unaffected.

Availability and accuracy of the GULP website

GULP does guarantee that the GULP website will be constantly and comprehensively available, and such availability may be interfered with due to disruptions involving the server, public communication networks, electricity supply, or other circumstances lying outside of GULP’s sphere of influence. GULP also reserves the right to temporarily limit the services for reasons of maintenance work and enhancements, provided that these are necessary for proper or improved operation. GULP does not warrant that the information and content provided on the website are complete, accurate, and in every case up to date. However, all information is verified at regular intervals.

Notification about changes
