Privacy policy and website

1. General information

The protection of your personal data is of particular concern to us. We therefore process your data exclusively on the basis of the statutory provisions (General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Data Protection Act 2000 – DSG 2000, Telecommunications Act 2003 – TKG 2003). In this data protection information we inform you about the most important aspects of data processing within our website. Further legal bases, which in view of our legitimate interest, require the processing of personal data, as far as this is necessary for the defense against asserted legal claims from the application procedure against us. These are among others: Equal Treatment Act – GlBG, General Civil Code – ABGB, Federal Tax Code – BAO. At TRESCON there is no data protection officer appointed, as there is no legal requirement to do so. The person responsible for data protection at TRESCON is Dr. Bernhard Winkler, MBA CMC. You can reach us at, +43 732 738341. In the following we will inform you in detail about the scope and purpose of our data processing as well as your rights as a data subject. Therefore, please read our data protection declaration carefully before continuing to use our website and before, if necessary, giving your consent to data processing.

4. Processing, usage and disclosure of personal data

Personal data that goes beyond the information stored by cookies are processed by us only if you voluntarily provide us with this information, for example, when you apply to us, register yourself, enter into a contractual relationship with us or you otherwise get in contact with us. We may process your publicly available job-related data, for example information made available in profiles in (professional) social media networks. We expressly point out that in an application process we do not collect sensitive information such as social security numbers, mental and physical health information, racial or ethnic origins, political or religious beliefs, memberships in labour unions or political parties, or sex life. However, if you provide us with such information by means of CVs, certificates, other documents, etc., you expressly agree that TRESCON may save and use this data in the application process. We use the personal data provided, exclusively in the context of the fulfilment of the respective purpose (e.g. concrete application for career offers, registration as an evidence candidate in an unsolicited application, registration to receive information such as newsletters, event information, information about the labour market and to current career offers, participation in surveys and studies, registration for events, downloading of white papers, execution of assignments and the contacting of TRESCON). We expressly point out that the transfer of data on the Internet (for example, in the case of communication by e-mail or online) can not be completely protected against access by third parties. Communication at our website is secured by Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS). Your personal data (for example, as an evidence candidate) will be forwarded to third parties only with your explicit consent. You can decide whether you agree to a disclosure of your personal information to third parties or not. Persons who specifically and actively apply for a current career offer also agree to the transfer of their data to the respective TRESCON client, depending on the conditions of the tendering and with particular regard to confidentiality and protection of integrity (e.g. stating of blocking notices). The candidate agrees that he/she will be contacted by TRESCON by telephone, e-mail and other communication channels, e.g. Social media networks.

5. Storage period

We store personal data of applicants for concrete career offers as long as it is necessary for the decision-making. If there is no employment relationship with our client or us (“refusal”), the legally compliant deletion of the data takes place 7 months after the refusal of the applicant. Candidates in evidence, who have agreed to the permanent storage of their data by TRESCON as a long-term career coach, will be legally deleted after five years from the last contact with TRESCON, unless they wish to be deleted earlier. Data that have been made available to us exclusively for customer service or information purposes will be stored for a period of five years after the last contact. If you wish, however, we will delete your data before the expiry of this period, provided that there is no legal obstacle given. In the case of a contract initiation or conclusion, we process your personal data after complete contract execution until the expiry periods for warranty, guarantee, statute of limitations and statutory retention applicable to us, and also until the termination of any legal disputes, in which the data may be required as evidence.

6. Digital interviews and meetings with ZOOM

For many years now TRESCON relies on the personal AND digital service for clients and candidates, including video interviews and conferences as well as online assessments, due to not only regional but also national and international consulting mandates. For this purpose TRESCON uses the tool “ZOOM”, a service of the US provider Zoom Video Communications, Inc. The legal basis for the processing of data via “ZOOM” is Art. 6, para. 1 DSGVO. TRESCON provides with “ZOOM” among other things (pre-) contractual services, in particular digital conversation management. The appropriate level of data protection at Zoom Video Communications, Inc. is guaranteed by the following measures: Zoom Video Communications, Inc. is certified under the Privacy Shield (see register). TRESCON has concluded a contract with Zoom Video Communications, Inc. based on the EU standard contract clauses. ZOOM-meetings are protected with high confidentiality or at the request of the interlocutor(s) by an individual password and thus reliably protected against unauthorized access by third parties.

7. Your rights

Basically, you are entitled to the rights to information, correction, deletion, restriction, data transferability, revocation and objection. If you believe that the processing of your data violates the data protection law or your data protection claims have otherwise been violated in any way, you can complain to the supervisory authority. In Austria, this is the data protection authority.

8. Liability for links on our website

Our pages include links to external websites of third parties. We have no influence on the contents of these directly or indirectly linked websites. The respective provider or operator is always responsible for the validity of the content, which is why we assume no liability whatsoever in this regard. At the time of linking, we checked the external websites for possible violations of the law, and no violations of the law were identifiable. A constant check of all contents of the pages linked by us, without actual indications of a legal violation, would be not reasonable. As soon as we become aware of any legal infringements, the corresponding links will be removed immediately.
