Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in our company. Protecting your privacy when using our website is very important to the management of The Place GmbH, its subsidiaries and affiliated companies.
The use of the The Place GmbH website is usually possible without providing personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special enterprise services via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no statutory basis for such processing, we generally obtain consent from the data subject.
As the Controller, The Place GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, it is not possible to rule out security vulnerabilities with Internet-based data transmissions, meaning that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, each data subject is at liberty to submit personal data to us by alternative means; for example, by telephone.
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the Controller.
Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, sorting, retrieval, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting its processing in the future.
Profiling is any form of automated processing of personal data which involves using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular for the purposes of analysis or estimation, or for analysing or anticipating aspects relating to work performance, economic situation, health status, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, or the location or movement of that person.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be assigned to a particular data subject without the use of further additional information, provided that this additional information is stored separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures that ensure the personal data are not assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.
The Controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the Controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.
Processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the Controller.
Recipient means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients.
Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, Controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the Controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.
Consent of the data subject means any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

The Place GmbH accepts no responsibility for the correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided and provides no guarantee that the information is up to date. Liability claims against The Place GmbH relating to material or immaterial damage caused by the use or neglect of the information provided or by the use of incorrect or incomplete information are strictly excluded, unless it can be proven that The Place GmbH acted with intent or gross negligence.

6. Referrals and links
The Place GmbH is not responsible for any third-party website contents directly or indirectly linked or referred to from its pages (hyperlinks), unless it has full knowledge of illegal contents and would be able to prevent the visitors to its site from viewing those pages. The Place GmbH hereby expressly declares that, at the time the links were set, no illegal content was found on the linked sites. The Place GmbH has no influence on the current and future design, content or authorship of the linked pages. It therefore expressly dissociates itself from the contents of all linked websites that were amended after the links were inserted. This statement applies to all links inserted on its own website as well as to other third-party postings or messages in guest books, on discussion forums, link directories, mailing lists set up by The Place GmbH and all other forms of databases with external write access. Sole responsibility for illegal, erroneous or incomplete content, and especially for damages arising from the use or neglect of such information, is borne by the provider of the linked site, and not by the party merely linking to the content in question.
7. Copyright and trademark law
In all publications, The Place GmbH endeavours to observe the copyrights of the graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts used, to use graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts created by itself or to access licence-free graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts. All brands and trademarks mentioned within the website and possibly protected by third parties are subject without restriction to the provisions of the respectively valid trademark law and the rights of ownership of the respective registered owners. The mere mention of a trademark does not mean that it is not protected by the rights of third parties!

Reproduction or use of such graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the express written consent of The Place GmbH.
8. Legal validity of this disclaimer
This disclaimer is to be regarded as part of the website you were referred from. If sections or individual terms of this statement are not legal or correct, the content or validity of the other parts shall not be affected thereby.
The data subject can prevent the placement of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the internet browser used and thus permanently object to the placement of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programmes. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the placement of cookies in the internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.
10. Collection of general data and information
The website of the The Place GmbH collects a series of general data and information every time a data subject or automated system accesses the website. This general data and information is stored in the server’s log files. The following data may be collected:
The browser types and versions used,
the operating system used by the accessing system,
The website from which an accessing system accesses our website (the referrer),
The sub-websites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website,
The date and time the website was accessed,
An internet protocol (IP) address,
The Internet service provider of the accessing system and
Other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using this general data and information, The Place GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the data subject.
Rather, this information is needed to
Deliver the content of our website correctly,
Optimise 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, The Place GmbH analyses anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our company, 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 a data subject.
11. Registration on our website
The data subject can register on the website of the Controller by providing personal data. Which personal data are transmitted to the Controller is determined by the respective input mask used for the registration. The personal data entered by the data subject will be collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the Controller and for its own purposes. The Controller 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 the Controller.
By registering on the website of the Controller, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject, date and time of registration are also stored. These data are stored as this is the only way to prevent misuse of our services and, if necessary, to enable us to investigate criminal offences committed. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary for our protection. This data will not be transmitted to third parties unless required to do so by law or for the purpose of criminal prosecution.
Registration by the data subject with voluntary indication of personal data allows the Controller to offer you contents or services, which can be offered only to registered users due to their nature. Registered persons are free to modify the personal data provided during the registration at any time or to have it completely deleted from the Controller’s database.
The Controller shall provide any data subject at any time, upon request, with information on what personal data are stored about the data subject. Furthermore, the Controller will correct or delete personal data at the request or notice of the data subject, provided there are no legal storage obligations that require the contrary.
Our Data Protection Officer or the management of The Place GmbH are available to the data subject as contact persons in this context.
12. Contact via the website
Due to legal requirements, the The Place GmbH website contains information that enables quick electronic contact with our company as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general electronic mail address (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the Controller by e-mail or through a contact form, the personal data provided by the data subject will be saved automatically. Such personal data, voluntarily transmitted by a data subject to the Controller, will be stored for the purposes of processing or for contacting the data subject. The data will not be transmitted to third parties.
13. Routine deletion and restriction of personal data
The Controller will process and store personal data of the data subject only for as long as is required to fulfil the purpose for which the data is being collected, or for the period stipulated by the applicable European Union laws or any other laws and provisions on data processing to which the Controller is subject.
If the purpose for storing the personal data no longer exists or if the retention period pursuant to European Union laws or any other applicable law has expired, the personal data will be routinely deleted or its processing restricted in accordance with legal requirements.
14. Rights of the data subject
Right to obtain confirmation
The data subject has the right, under European Union law, to obtain from the Controller confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning him/her is being processed. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of confirmation, he or she may contact our Data Protection Officer or the management at any time.
Right of access
Each data subject has the right to request information from the Controller at any time on the personal data concerning him/her that is being stored by the Controller. European Union law also grants data subjects the right to access the following information:
The purpose of the processing
The categories of personal data concerned
The recipients or categories of recipient to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries or international organisations
Where possible, the envisaged period for which the personal data will be stored, or, if not possible, the criteria used to determine that period
The existence of the right to request from the Controller rectification or erasure of personal data or restriction of processing of personal data concerning the data subject or to object to such processing
The right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
Where the personal data are not collected from the data subject, any available information as to their source
The existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, referred to in Article 22(1) and (4) of the GDPR and, at least in those cases, meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and the envisaged consequences of such processing for the data subject.
In addition, the data subject has a right to be informed if personal data relating to him or her have been transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. If this is the case, the data subject shall also have the right to be informed of the appropriate safeguards relating to the transfer.
If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of access, he or she may contact our Data Protection Officer or the management at any time.
Right to rectification
Under EU law, each data subject has the right to obtain from the Controller without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning him or her. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject shall also have the right to have incomplete personal data completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.
If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to rectification, he or she may contact our Data Protection Officer or the management at any time.
Right to erasure (‘right to be forgotten’)
Under EU law, each data subject has the right to obtain from the Controller the erasure of personal data concerning him or her without undue delay and the Controller has the obligation to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies and if the processing is not necessary:
The personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
The data subject withdraws consent on which the processing is based according to point (a) of Article 6(1), or point (a) of Article 9(2), and where there is no other legal basis for the processing.
The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2).
The personal data have been unlawfully processed.
The personal data have to be erased for compliance with a legal obligation in Union or Member State law to which the Controller is subject.
The personal data have been collected in relation to the offer of information society services referred to in Article 8(1).
If one of the above reasons applies, and a data subject wishes to obtain from The Place GmbH the erasure of personal data concerning him or her, he or she may, at any time, contact our Data Protection Officer or the Controller’s management. The Data Protection Officer or the management of The Place GmbH will arrange for the erasure to be actioned without delay.
If The Place GmbH has made the personal data public, and if our company, as the Controller, has an obligation to erase the data, The Place GmbH shall take reasonable measures, including technical, in consideration of the available technology and costs of implementation, to inform all other controllers in data processing that all links to this personal data, as well as copies or replicates of the personal data, must be erased, unless processing is necessary.
The The Place GmbH Data Protection Officer or the management will take the necessary steps in each individual case.
Right to restriction of processing
Under EU law, each data subject has the right to obtain from the Controller restriction of processing where one of the following applies:
The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period enabling the Controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data
The processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests the restriction of their use instead.
The Controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
The data subject has objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.
If one of the above applies, and a data subject wishes to obtain from The Place GmbH the restriction of personal data concerning him or her, he or she may, at any time, contact our Data Protection Officer or the Controller’s management. The Data Protection Officer or the management of The Place GmbH will arrange for the restriction of processing.
Right to data portability
Under EU law, each data subject shall have the right to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which was provided to a Controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. He or she shall also have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the Controller to which the personal data have been provided, as long as the processing is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, or on a contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, and the processing is carried out by automated means, as long as the processing is not necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the Controller.
Furthermore, in exercising his or her right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the data subject shall have the right to have personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible and when doing so does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
The data subject may contact the Data Protection Officer or management of The Place GmbH at any time to assert the right to data portability.
Right to object
Under EU law, each data subject shall have the right to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any time, to processing of personal data concerning him or her, which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The Place GmbH shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If The Place GmbH processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing. This applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to The Place GmbH in respect of processing for direct marketing purposes, The Place GmbH will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to The Place GmbH’s processing of personal data concerning him or her for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.
The data subject may contact the Data Protection Officer or management of The Place GmbH directly to exercise the right to object. In the context of the use of information society services, the data subject may also exercise his or her right to object by automated means using technical specifications, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.
Automated individual decision-making, including profiling
Under EU law, each data subject shall have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly affects him or her, as long as the decision
Is not necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the Controller, or
Is not authorised by Union or Member State law to which the Controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or
Is not based on the data subject’s explicit consent.
If the decision is
Necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the Controller, or
Based on the data subject’s explicit consent, The Place GmbH shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the Controller, to express his or her point of view and contest the decision.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated individual decision-making, he or she may at any time contact our Data Protection Officer or other employee of the Controller directly.
Right to withdraw consent
Under EU law, each data subject has the right to withdraw their consent to the processing of personal data at any time.
If the data subject wishes to exercise their right to withdraw consent, he or she may at any time contact our Data Protection Officer or other employee of the Controller directly.
15. Data protection regarding job applications and the application process
The Controller collects and processes personal data from job seekers in order to carry out the application process. Processing may also be done electronically. This is especially the case when an applicant sends the requisite application documents to the Controller electronically, e.g. by e-mail or via an online form on the website. If the Controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the data transferred will be stored for the purpose of the employment relationship in accordance with legal requirements. If the Controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents shall be automatically deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that deletion does not conflict with any other legitimate interests of the Controller. Other legitimate interests in this context would be, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the German Federal General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
16. Data protection provisions on the use and application of Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)
The Controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, reporting, and analysis of data to inform an understanding of user behaviour across web pages. Among other things, a web analytics service collects data about the websites from which visitors arrive (referrers), which subpages of the website are accessed, and how often and for how long each subpage is viewed. Web analytics is primarily used to optimise websites and to perform a cost-benefit analysis for internet advertising.
The Google Analytics component is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The Controller uses the setting “_gat._anonymizeIp” for web analytics via Google Analytics. With this setting, the IP address of the user’s internet connection is shortened and anonymised by Google whenever the website is accessed from a Member State of the European Union or any other signatory country of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics web component is to analyse traffic flows on our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information that they collect to analyse website usage, to generate online reports for us showing user activities on our web pages and to provide other services relevant to the use of our website.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the system of the data subject. Cookies are explained above. Placing this cookie allows Google to analyse the usage of our website. Whenever a data subject accesses one of the pages of the website operated by the Controller on which a Google Analytics web component is integrated, the Google Analytics web component will ask the internet browser of the data subject’s device to submit data to Google for the purposes of online analysis. As part of this process, Google receives information about personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks in order to regulate subsequent payments.
The cookie stores personal information, e.g. access time, location of access and frequency of visits to the website by the data subject. For every visit to our website, these personal data, including the IP address of the data subject’s internet connection, are transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States. Google may transfer the personal data that have been collected to third parties.
Data subjects can prevent the placement of cookies by our website at any time, as noted above, by configuring their internet browser accordingly to permanently prevent cookies. This setting in the relevant internet browser would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the data subject’s device. Additionally, any cookie previously placed by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time using the web browser or other software programs.
Furthermore, the data subject has the possibility to object to and prevent the collection of data generated by Google Analytics during the usage of this website and subsequent processing of this data by Google. To do this, the data subject can download and install a browser add-on from https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via Java-Script that no data or information about website visitation may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of this browser add-on is viewed as an objection by Google. If the data subject’s device is later erased, formatted or reinstalled, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on in order to disable Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the data subject or any other person with the power to do so, this browser add-on can always be reinstalled or reactivated.
Google Analytics is explained in more detail at https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.
17. Data protection provisions on the use and application of Google AdWords
The Controller has integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an internet advertising service that allows advertisers to place ads both in Google’s search engine results and in the Google advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to specify certain keywords in advance, by means of which an ad is displayed in Google’s search engine results exclusively when the user retrieves a keyword-relevant search result with the search engine. In the Google advertising network, the ads are distributed to topic-relevant websites by means of an automatic algorithm and in compliance with the previously defined keywords.
The Google AdWords services are operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The purpose of Google AdWords is to advertise our website by displaying interest-relevant advertising on the websites of third-party companies and in the search results of the Google search engine and to display third-party advertising on our website.
If a data subject accesses our website via a Google advertisement, Google will place a conversion cookie on that person’s IT system. Cookies are explained above. A conversion cookie is valid for thirty days and cannot be used to identify the data subject. If the conversion cookie’s validity has not expired, it can be used to check whether certain sub-pages of a website, such as the shopping cart of an online shop, have been visited. A conversion cookie enables us and Google to check whether a data subject who came to our website via an AdWords ad has generated sales; in other words, completed or cancelled a purchase.
Google uses data and information collected when a conversion cookie is used to generate visitor statistics for our website. We then use these visitor statistics to determine the total number of users brought to us via AdWords ads; that is, to determine the success of an AdWords ad and to optimise future AdWords ads. Neither our company nor any Google AdWords advertising customer receives any information from Google that can be used to identify the data subject.
By using conversion cookies, data related to the data subject is stored, such as their browsing history. For every visit to our website, therefore, personal data, including the IP address of the data subject’s internet connection, are transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States. Google may transfer the personal data that have been collected to third parties.
Data subjects can prevent the placement of cookies by our website at any time, as noted above, by configuring their internet browser accordingly to permanently prevent cookies. This setting in the relevant internet browser would also prevent Google from placing a conversion cookie on the data subject’s device. Additionally, any cookie previously placed by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time using the web browser or other software programs.
In addition, the data subject can object to Google’s interest-related advertising. To do this, the data subject must visit www.google.com/settings/ads from each of the browsers they use and choose their desired settings.
18. Legal basis for processing
Point (a) of Art. 6(1) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on point (b) of Article 6(1) GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of enquiries concerning our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, for example to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on point (c) of Art. 6(1) GDPR. In rare cases, it may be necessary to process personal data to protect the vital interests of the data subject or other natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and the name, age, health insurance data or other vital information of this person would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on point (d) of Art. 6(1) GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal bases, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. In particular, we are permitted to carry out such processing operations because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislators, who have taken the view that a legitimate interest can be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (Recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).
19. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the Controller or a third party
Where the processing of personal data is based on point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR, our legitimate interest is the performance of our business activities for the benefit of all our employees and our shareholder.
20. Period for which the personal data will be stored
The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the expiry of that period, the data will be routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.
21. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement; requirement necessary to enter into a contract; obligation of the data subject to provide personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide such data
We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes, for the purposes of contract conclusion, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before providing personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact our Data Protection Officer. Our Data Protection Officer will inform the data subject whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of failure to provide the personal data.
22. Existence of automated decision making
As a responsible company, we do not use automated decision making or profiling.
