2. General information and mandatory information
Data protection
The operators of this website and its pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. Hence,
we handle your personal data as confidential information and in compliance with the statutory data
protection regulations and this Data Protection Declaration.
Whenever you use this website, a variety of personal information will be collected. Personal data comprises
data that can be used to personally identify you. This Data Protection Declaration explains which data we
collect as well as the purposes we use this data for. It also explains how, and for which purpose the
information is collected.
We herewith advise you that the transmission of data via the Internet (i.e., through e-mail communications)
may be prone to security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect data against third-party access.
Information about the responsible party (referred to as the “controller” in the GDPR)
The data processing controller on this website is:
Deborah Lepp
Halberstädter Str. 180
Phone: +4917666651807
E-mail: info@deborahlepp.com
The controller is the natural person or legal entity that single-handedly or jointly with others makes
decisions as to the purposes of and resources for the processing of personal data (e.g., names, e-mail
addresses, etc.).
Storage duration
4 / 16
Unless a more specific storage period has been specified in this privacy policy, your personal data will remain
with us until the purpose for which it was collected no longer applies. If you assert a justified request for
deletion or revoke your consent to data processing, your data will be deleted, unless we have other legally
permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g., tax or commercial law retention periods); in the
latter case, the deletion will take place after these reasons cease to apply.
Information on data transfer to the USA and other non-EU countries
Among other things, we use tools of companies domiciled in the United States or other from a data
protection perspective non-secure non-EU countries. If these tools are active, your personal data may
potentially be transferred to these non-EU countries and may be processed there. We must point out that in
these countries, a data protection level that is comparable to that in the EU cannot be guaranteed. For
instance, U.S. enterprises are under a mandate to release personal data to the security agencies and you as
the data subject do not have any litigation options to defend yourself in court. Hence, it cannot be ruled out
that U.S. agencies (e.g., the Secret Service) may process, analyze, and permanently archive your personal
data for surveillance purposes. We have no control over these processing activities.
Revocation of your consent to the processing of data
A wide range of data processing transactions are possible only subject to your express consent. You can also
revoke at any time any consent you have already given us. This shall be without prejudice to the lawfulness
of any data collection that occurred prior to your revocation.
Right to object to the collection of data in special cases; right to object to direct
advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)
IN THE EVENT THAT DATA ARE PROCESSED ON THE BASIS OF ART. 6(1)(E) OR (F) GDPR, YOU HAVE
THE RIGHT TO AT ANY TIME OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA BASED ON
GROUNDS ARISING FROM YOUR UNIQUE SITUATION. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO ANY PROFILING BASED
ON THESE PROVISIONS. TO DETERMINE THE LEGAL BASIS, ON WHICH ANY PROCESSING OF DATA IS
BASED, PLEASE CONSULT THIS DATA PROTECTION DECLARATION. IF YOU LOG AN OBJECTION, WE
WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA, UNLESS WE ARE IN A POSITION TO
PRESENT COMPELLING PROTECTION WORTHY GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING OF YOUR DATA,
THAT OUTWEIGH YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS OR IF THE PURPOSE OF THE
PROCESSING IS THE CLAIMING, EXERCISING OR DEFENCE OF LEGAL ENTITLEMENTS (OBJECTION
PURSUANT TO ART. 21(1) GDPR).
IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS BEING PROCESSED IN ORDER TO ENGAGE IN DIRECT ADVERTISING,
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA FOR
THE PURPOSES OF SUCH ADVERTISING AT ANY TIME. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING TO THE
EXTENT THAT IT IS AFFILIATED WITH SUCH DIRECT ADVERTISING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL
DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR DIRECT ADVERTISING PURPOSES
(OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21(2) GDPR).
Right to log a complaint with the competent supervisory agency
In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects are entitled to log a complaint with a supervisory
agency, in particular in the member state where they usually maintain their domicile, place of work or at the
place where the alleged violation occurred. The right to log a complaint is in effect regardless of any other
administrative or court proceedings available as legal recourses.
Right to data portability
You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we automatically process on the basis of your
5 / 16
consent or in order to fulfil a contract be handed over to you or a third party in a commonly used, machine
readable format. If you should demand the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will be done
only if it is technically feasible.
SSL and/or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as purchase orders or
inquiries you submit to us as the website operator, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption
program. You can recognize an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser
switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line.
If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information about, rectification and eradication of data
Within the scope of the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right to at any time demand
information about your archived personal data, their source and recipients as well as the purpose of the
processing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data rectified or eradicated. If you have
questions about this subject matter or any other questions about personal data, please do not hesitate to
contact us at any time.
Right to demand processing restrictions
You have the right to demand the imposition of restrictions as far as the processing of your personal data is
concerned. To do so, you may contact us at any time. The right to demand restriction of processing applies in
the following cases:
In the event that you should dispute the correctness of your data archived by us, we will usually need
some time to verify this claim. During the time that this investigation is ongoing, you have the right to
demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data.
If the processing of your personal data was/is conducted in an unlawful manner, you have the option to
demand the restriction of the processing of your data in lieu of demanding the eradication of this data.
If we do not need your personal data any longer and you need it to exercise, defend or claim legal
entitlements, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead
of its eradication.
If you have raised an objection pursuant to Art. 21(1) GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be
weighed against each other. As long as it has not been determined whose interests prevail, you have the
right to demand a restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data – with the exception of their archiving
– may be processed only subject to your consent or to claim, exercise or defend legal entitlements or to
protect the rights of other natural persons or legal entities or for important public interest reasons cited by
the European Union or a member state of the EU.
Rejection of unsolicited e-mails
We herewith object to the use of contact information published in conjunction with the mandatory
information to be provided in our Site Notice to send us promotional and information material that we have
not expressly requested. The operators of this website and its pages reserve the express right to take legal
action in the event of the unsolicited sending of promotional information, for instance via SPAM messages.

Cookies, which are required for the performance of electronic communication transactions (required

If you submit inquiries to us via our contact form, the information provided in the contact form as well as any
contact information provided therein will be stored by us in order to handle your inquiry and in the event
that we have further questions. We will not share this information without your consent.
The processing of these data is based on Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR, if your request is related to the execution of a
contract or if it is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases the processing is based
on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR) or
on your agreement (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR) if this has been requested.
The information you have entered into the contact form shall remain with us until you ask us to eradicate the

prejudice to any mandatory legal provisions, in particular retention periods.
Request by e-mail, telephone, or fax
If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your request, including all resulting personal data (name,

Job Applications
We offer website visitors the opportunity to submit job applications to us (e.g., via e-mail, via postal services
on by submitting the online job application form). Below, we will brief you on the scope, purpose and use of
the personal data collected from you in conjunction with the application process. We assure you that the
collection, processing and use of your data will occur in compliance with the applicable data privacy rights
and all other statutory provisions and that your data will always be treated as strictly confidential.
Scope and purpose of the collection of data
If you submit a job application to us, we will process any affiliated personal data (e.g., contact and
communications data, application documents, notes taken during job interviews, etc.), if they are required to
make a decision concerning the establishment or an employment relationship. The legal grounds for the
aforementioned are § 26 GDPR according to German Law (Negotiation of an Employment Relationship), Art.
6(1)(b) GDPR (General Contract Negotiations) and – provided you have given us your consent – Art. 6(1)(a)
GDPR. You may revoke any consent given at any time. Within our company, your personal data will only be
shared with individuals who are involved in the processing of your job application.
If your job application should result in your recruitment, the data you have submitted will be archived on the
grounds of § 26 GDPR and Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship
in our data processing system.
Data Archiving Period
If we are unable to make you a job offer or you reject a job offer or withdraw your application, we reserve the
right to retain the data you have submitted on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR) for up
to 6 months from the end of the application procedure (rejection or withdrawal of the application).
Afterwards the data will be deleted, and the physical application documents will be destroyed. The storage
serves in particular as evidence in the event of a legal dispute. If it is evident that the data will be required
14 / 16
after the expiry of the 6-month period (e.g., due to an impending or pending legal dispute), deletion will only
take place when the purpose for further storage no longer applies.
Longer storage may also take place if you have given your agreement (Article 6(1)(a) GDPR) or if statutory
data retention requirements preclude the deletion.
Admission to the applicant pool
If we do not make you a job offer, you may be able to join our applicant pool. In case of admission, all
documents and information from the application will be transferred to the applicant pool in order to contact
you in case of suitable vacancies.
Admission to the applicant pool is based exclusively on your express agreement (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR). The
submission agreement is voluntary and has no relation to the ongoing application procedure. The affected
person can revoke his agreement at any time. In this case, the data from the applicant pool will be
irrevocably deleted, provided there are no legal reasons for storage.
The data from the applicant pool will be irrevocably deleted no later than two years after consent has been
granted.
