1.1 Processing of personal data and its purpose

Julius Berger International GmbH (hereinafter referred to as "Julius Berger" or "we") processes personal data of users exclusively to the extent necessary to provide a functional website and our contents and services. When visiting our website, the following data is processed:

  • IP address of the user
  • Browser used (type, version, language)
  • Operating system used
  • Internet service provider of the user
  • Date and time of access to our website
  • files viewed on our website
  • Website from which the user has accessed our website
  • Website that the user accesses via our website


The processing and temporary storage of the IP address is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user's computer. For this purpose, the user's IP address must be stored for the duration of the session. The log files contain IP addresses or other data that enable the user to be assigned. The storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the web pages. In addition, the data serves to optimise our websites and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. Any processing of personal data is carried out exclusively for the above-mentioned purposes and to the extent necessary to achieve these purposes. These data will not be used for advertising, customer service or market research purposes.


1.2 Legal basis for the processing of personal data

The processing of personal data of our users is regularly carried out with the consent of the user. An exception is made in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and we are permitted by law to process the data. The storage of data and log files is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.


1.3 Data deletion and storage period

The personal data of the persons concerned will be deleted or blocked by us as soon as the purpose of the storage is no longer applicable. In the case of data processing for the provision of the web pages, the data is deleted when the respective session is ended. In case of storage of personal data in log files, the deletion will take place after seven days at the latest. Storage beyond this period is possible if the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated beforehand, so that the calling client can no longer be assigned.

If you register for our newsletter, the following personal data will be processed by us:

  • Name
  • E-mail address
  • IP address of the calling computer
  • Date and time of dispatch.


For the processing of the data, your consent will be obtained during the registration process. We secure the registration through a so-called double opt-in procedure. In this way we ensure that the e-mail address provided in connection with the newsletter subscription is actually assigned to you. After you have entered your required data (name, e-mail address) in the respective input masks, you will receive an automated e-mail with an activation link. By confirming the link you have subscribed to our newsletter.


4.2 Legal basis

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is Art. 6 Para. 1 letter a DS-GVO.


4.3 Purpose of data processing

4.4 Duration of storage of your personal data

We store your personal data for the duration of your subscription to our newsletter.


4.5 Service provider used

Our newsletter is sent by rapidmail, a service of the provider rapidmail GmbH Augustinerplatz 2, 79098 Freiburg i.Br., Germany. rapidmail is a service which can be used to organise and analyse the dispatch of newsletters, among other things. rapidmail enables us to anlyse our newsletter campaigns (success measurement). For example, we can see whether a newsletter message was opened and which links were clicked on, if applicable. In this way, we can determine, among other things, which links were clicked on particularly often. In addition, we can see whether certain previously defined actions were carried out after opening/clicking (conversion rate). Rapidmail also allows us to divide the newsletter recipients into different categories ("clustering"). The newsletter recipients can be divided according to age, gender or place of residence, for example. In this way, the newsletters can be better adapted to the respective target groups. The data entered by the user for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter is managed and stored exclusively within the European Union. Detailed information can be found at


Since a separate revocation of the performance measurement is unfortunately not possible, in this case the entire newsletter subscription must be cancelled or objected to.

  • Processed data types: 
    • inventory data (e.g. names, addresses), 
    • contact details (e.g. e-mail, telephone numbers), 
    • meta/communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses), 
    • usage data (e.g. websites visited, access times).
  • Affected persons: communication partners.
  • Purposes of processing: direct marketing (e.g. by e-mail or by post).
  • Legal basis: Consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO), legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f. DSGVO).


Right of withdrawal
You have the right to revoke your consent at any time without stating reasons with effect for the future, for example by clicking on the link contained in every e-mail to terminate your subscription.


You are not obliged to provide your personal data. The provision is neither required by law or contract nor necessary for the conclusion of a contract. However, failure to provide it may mean that you cannot subscribe to our newsletter.


5. E-mail contact

Users can contact us via the provided e-mail address. In this case, the personal data of the user transmitted with the e-mail will be stored by us. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. If the purpose of the contact is to conclude a contract, the legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DS-GVO. The data is used exclusively for processing the establishment of contact and subsequent communication. In this context, it does not pursue the forwarding of data to third parties. The personal data sent to us by e-mail will be deleted when the respective communication with the user has ended, i.e. as soon as it is clear from the circumstances that the matter in question has been finally clarified. The personal data additionally collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of seven days at the latest.


6. Career portal - talent pool

On our websites we offer applicants the opportunity to apply for advertised job offers by entering personal data. To simplify the application process, we offer applicants the opportunity to register in our career portal. The data will be entered into an input mask, transmitted to us and saved. The following data is collected:

  • Salutation (voluntary)
  • First name, last name
  • Username
  • E-mail address
  • IP address of the user
  • Date and time of dispatch


The applicant will then receive a registration e-mail at the e-mail address provided, which contains a link by which the applicant can confirm his registration and complete the registration process. After successful registration, the applicant can open his user account and create his applicant profile by entering his e-mail address and password. The applicant can change his details at any time until his application is sent.


The personal data provided in the context of an application will be processed by us exclusively for the purpose of selecting applicants. For the processing of applications, we limit ourselves to the information provided directly by the applicants. This may also include information that applicants have stored in professional online networks or job exchanges. If, in the course of the application procedure, we ask for the gender of the applicant in the form of the desired form of address, this is solely on the grounds that we wish to address or address the applicants in the correct manner. The processing of personal data within the framework of the career portal is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO, or Art. 88 Para. 1 DS-GVO in conjunction with § ARTICLE 26 BDSG. The data is deleted by us six months after the rejection of an application, unless the applicant has consented to the inclusion of his or her personal data in our talent pool.


Applicants who have applied in response to a specific job advertisement by Julius Berger and whose application documents have been examined and found to be ineligible for this position are offered the opportunity to add their application to our talent pool and make it available to other areas within Julius Berger for the search for suitable candidates. In advance, we will contact the applicants so that they can decide whether they are interested in the described procedure. The processing of personal data within the framework of the talent pool is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO, or Art. 88 para. 1 DS-GVO in conjunction with § ARTICLE 26 BDSG. The data is initially included in the talent pool for six months. As soon as the applicant logs on to the system again with his or her access data, the six-month period begins again. If the applicant does not adjust or use his or her profile for a period of five months, we will request an update of his or her data from the applicant by e-mail. If the applicant does not update his or her data, it is removed from the Talent Pool after a further four weeks and locked for further use. The personal data will be deleted by us after a further six months.


Underage applicants who have not yet reached the age of 16 must submit a declaration of consent from their parents or legal representatives by post, in which they declare that they agree to the inclusion of the underage applicant in our talent pool and to the processing of their personal data in accordance with these data protection provisions and the consents given.
