Data protection

Introduction/Employee Confidentiality
The protection of your personal data is an important aspect of our daily work. We, Moore Deutschland AG Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft (hereinafter referred to as “MDAG”), would therefore like to inform you at this point about the processing of your personal data by us. This is based on the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and other provisions of data protection law. Our employees have been obligated by us to maintain secrecy and confidentiality and to comply with the provisions of data protection law. 

Name and contact details of the responsible person:
Moore Deutschland AG
Lindwurmstraße 114
80337 Munich

Phone: +49 211 261308-22

Personal data
This privacy policy applies to the processing of your personal data. According to Art. 4 No. 1 DSGVO, this is all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, details such as name, address, e-mail address or telephone number, but also usage data such as the IP address.

Use, purpose, legal basis and storage period for the collection of data when visiting our website
When using our website for purely informational purposes, we only collect the personal data from you that your browser transmits to our server, that is technically necessary for the presentation of our website on your computer and that ensures the stability and security of the website, in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, namely:

– the date and time of the request;
– the time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT);
– the specific website or subsite accessed;
– the http status code;
– the quantity of data transferred;
– your IP address;
– which browser and which version you are using;
– which operating system and which version you are using;
– the language of your operating system.

Our legitimate interest in processing the aforementioned data is to ensure the correct display and to guarantee the stability and security of the website. This data is deleted immediately after the end of the visit to the website.

Use, purpose, legal basis and storage period for data collection in connection with contacting you
If you contact us and provide us with personal data, we will process this data. In this case, we process the following information (if provided by you):

– Salutation, title, first name, surname
– Company
– Contact details (e-mail address, address, telephone number)
– If applicable, other information provided, such as your occupation, marital status or education.

We process this data in order to keep you as a contact, to answer your questions and, if necessary, to contact you as part of our marketing measures.

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, insofar as you contact us in connection with the performance of a contract. Otherwise, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, whereby our legitimate interests follow from the above-mentioned purposes.

We delete your personal data in this context as soon as it is no longer required for the purposes for which it was collected. In the context of contract processing, this is the case, for example, after complete contract processing and the expiry of the periods within which we still need your data to enforce and defend any civil law claims arising from the contact with you, i.e. until the expiry of the year following the occurrence of the statute of limitations for all mutual claims or after the expiry of the tax and commercial law and other statutory retention periods.

Use, purpose, legal basis and storage period for data collection in connection with job applications
If you apply for a job with us, we process the following information (if provided by you):

– Salutation, title, first name, last name
– Contact details (e-mail address, address, telephone number)
– Qualification documents (esp. certificates, information contained in the curriculum vitae)
– salary expectations
– Photos attached to the application documents
– Other information you have attached to the application documents.

Transmission to third parties
As a matter of principle, we do not pass on personal data to third parties unless this is necessary and legally permissible. We therefore only pass on your personal data if:

– you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO,
– this is necessary for the provision of the service or the execution of the contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO,
– we are legally obliged to pass on your data pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c. DSGVO, e.g. to authorities or other state institutions within the scope of the statutory duty to provide information or due to court decisions
– the disclosure is necessary in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO to protect our legitimate interests, e.g. to assert, exercise or defend legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest in the non-disclosure of your data.

In addition, in certain areas we use the support of external service providers, so-called processors, to whom we pass on your data. The processors may only use your data for the purposes specified by us, are carefully selected and are regularly checked by us to ensure the protection of your data. We have concluded a contract processing agreement with all service providers in accordance with Art. 28 DSGVO and the service providers process your data exclusively on the basis of our instructions.

The service providers we use include, for example, hosting service providers.

Data pertaining to children and adolescents
Persons under the age of 18 should not transmit any personal data to us without the consent of their parents or legal guardians. We do not knowingly request, collect or disclose personal data from children and young people to third parties, except in the course of providing services ordered by their parents or guardians.

Security measures
To protect your personal data held by us from unauthorised access and misuse, we have taken extensive technical and operational security precautions. Our security procedures to protect against damage, destruction or unauthorised access are regularly reviewed and adapted to technological progress.

This website has links to external sites. When you click on these links, your IP address will in most cases be logged by the relevant website. This privacy policy applies only to this website and not to third party websites.

Your rights
If you meet the legal requirements:

– you will receive information about your data stored by us free of charge and without having to give reasons (Art. 15 DSGVO);
– you can have the data we have collected corrected or deleted, as well as request restriction of the processing of your data (Art. 16, Art. 17, Art. 18). In the event that the deletion of your data is contrary to our obligation to retain the data, your data will not be deleted but will be blocked for further use (Art. 17, 18 DSGVO);
– you can demand to receive your personal data in a structured, common and machine-readable format and demand the transfer to another responsible party, as far as this is technically possible (“right to data transfer”, Art. 20 DSGVO);
– you may object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of your personal data carried out on the basis of Art. 6(1)(e) or (f) (Art. 21 DSGVO). We will not further process the personal data after your objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims;
– you can revoke a consent to data collection and processing given to us, e.g. in the context of placing an order, without giving reasons (Art. 7 (3) DSGVO), without this affecting the lawfulness of the data processing carried out up to that point.

If you wish to exercise your rights against us, you can contact us, for example, at the email address or the telephone number +49 211 261308-22.

You also have the right to complain to the competent data protection authority about the processing of your personal data by us (art. 77 DSGVO). The competent supervisory authority for data protection issues is usually the supervisory authority of your usual place of residence or the State Data Protection Commissioner of the Federal State of Bavaria in which our company is based.

Please contact us any time if you have further questions about data protection or about the processing of your personal data.

Cookies and Plugins
This website uses cookies and plugins. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard drive for use by the browser. Cookies cannot execute programs or transmit malware and are used to make the website more user-friendly and/or efficient by storing certain information.

We set a so-called “transient cookie” or “session cookie” when you call up our website. This cookie logs the data that is technically required to display our website on your computer and to ensure the stability and security of the website. We have a legitimate interest in this in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The cookie is automatically deleted as soon as you close your browser. If you do not want us to recognise your computer, this is also possible; you can prevent cookies from being stored on your hard drive by selecting “do not accept cookies” in your browser settings. You can find out how this works from the instructions provided by your browser manufacturer. If you do not accept cookies, however, this may lead to functional restrictions with regard to our content.

With the exception of the technically necessary session cookie and the services listed below, we do not use cookies or plugins that process personal data.

Social Media Plugins

We do not use social media plugins on our websites. If our websites contain icons from social media providers (e.g. Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram), we only use these to passively link to the pages of the respective providers.

SSL encryption

This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as enquiries that you send to us as site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
