All use of content posted on this website is at your own risk. Contributions marked with the name of the author represent the opinion of the relevant author and are not always the opinion of the provider. The use of this website does not result in a contractual relationship between the user and the provider.
Liability for Links
Our website includes links to external websites of third parties. It is always the respective provider or operator of these websites who is responsible for the content of these pages. The linked pages were examined for any possible legal violations at the time the links were established. No legal violations were apparent in the contents at the time that the links were established. We have no control over the current and future design and content of the linked sites. The placing of external links does not imply that we take possession of the content behind the reference or link. It is, however, not reasonable to carry out permanent inspections of the linked pages without any specific indication of a legal infringement. As soon as any legal infringement becomes known to us, we will remove the applicable links immediately.
All contents and work created by the website operator on this website are subject to German copyright law. Any kind of reproduction, processing, distribution and administration of the contents and work of this website that are not covered by copyright law require the written consent of the respective author or creator. Third-party content is to be clearly indicated as such. Copying or distributing of the website, whether in part or in full, is prohibited. Downloads and copies made from this website are only allowed for personal use, not for commercial use.
This privacy statement sets out how, through this website, ponturo consulting AG (hereinafter: ‘ponturo,’ ‘we,’ ‘us’ or ‘ourselves’) collects, administers and utilises data concerning persons who visit the website. We assign great importance to protecting your privacy when you use our website. For this reason, we kindly call your attention to the information below concerning our approach to your personal data.
1. Contact; area of applicability
If you have any questions, complaints or doubts with regard to the implementation of this privacy statement, or relevant comments or suggestions, please do not hesitate to write us.
This privacy statement applies to our website, reachable at the domain http://www.ponturo.de (hereinafter: ‘website’). It however does not apply to internet offers (from ourselves or third-party service providers), to which the reader is only referred by means of a link on the website.
2. Personal data
Personal data are defined as all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person; a natural person is here defined as identifiable who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by means of assignment to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more special characteristics, which express the physical, physiological, genetic, psychic, economic, cultural or social identity of such a natural person. These include, e.g. such data as one’s name, date of birth, email or postal address or telephone number. The following section explains how and when ponturo collects personal data.
3. Collection of personal data
The internet services offered here by ponturo can normally be accessed without the need for personal registration or disclosure of one’s identity. It is however possible that for certain services, we will request your name, user name and, in certain cases, other personal information. It is entirely up to you whether you supply this information. Without it, however, ponturo may be unable to provide you with the service you have requested or to process your query.
Further, we process your personal data as follows:
a) Visits to our website
Each time you use our website, your IP address and/or other use-related data (e.g. the date and time of your opening of the website, the name of the page opened, the quantity of data transferred or the requesting provider) may, for technical reasons, be collected and processed on our server. This is necessary for executing the process of communication with our website which you have requested. The legal basis for our temporary retention of these data is formed by our justified interest in the execution of the communication (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR). We assume that this is in your interests, as well, since, without such communication, the website cannot be displayed. An objection to such processing is unfortunately not possible, as the technical process of communication takes place automatically and, to this extent, compelling legitimate grounds speak against an objection. You can only avoid such data processing by not opening the website.
b) Initiating contact by means of a contact form or via email; promotional communication
To the extent that you initiate contact with us (e.g. by means of a contact form or via email), the personal data you communicate to us on the contact form will be stored and processed. If a contact form is involved, the form in question will indicate which data will be collected. These data will be employed solely to respond to your request or will be retained and utilised for the initiation of contact and the associated technical administration. The processing of this data takes place in fulfilment of a contract or contractual measures (Art. 6(1(b) GDPR); or such processing is also in our own legitimate interest, such that opposing interests on your part do not prevail, as otherwise we will be unable to process the request (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR). Following the conclusion of the processing of the request, we shall erase your data or continue to retain them solely in the case of statutory, corporate or contractual terms of retention or to the extent that a more extensive retention is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
Before contacting you for promotional purposes by email, telephone or fax, we will first request your consent, which you can withdraw at any time. To the extent that we have a postal address for you, sending you promotional material by post will be possible. It is in our legitimate interest to disseminate information on our services and to advertise (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR). You can withdraw your consent for such use at any time.
c) Submitting your application via our website
To the extent that you submit application documents via our website, the personal data (e.g. name, address, email address, telephone number, as well as your CV and diplomas/certificates) you provide will be retained and processed. The processing of this data will take place on the basis of precontractual measures and for the purpose of contract initiation (Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR)). We will erase these data three months after rejection of your application, unless you have given us your consent to retain the data for a longer period, so that we will be able, in future, to offer you any interesting positions that may become available (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR). In the event that we conclude an employment agreement with you, we will continue to retain your data for the purpose of executing the agreement (Art. 6(1) GDPR)).
Concretely speaking, we employ the following cookies:
(2) Third-party cookies: we also use third-party applications to carry out analyses that call for so-called third-party cookies, i.e. cookies deployed by third parties. Below, we describe the applications which we use and the third-party cookies deployed in connection with them:
Use of Google Analytics
We utilise Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA („Google“), to analyse how our website is used. The obtained statistics thus help us to improve our range of services and to make them more interesting to you, as a user.
Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, text files stored on your computer, which make it possible to analyse how you use the website. The information which a cookie generates about your use of this website is normally transferred to a Google server in the United States and stored there. As, on this website, IP anonymisation has already been activated, Google abbreviates your IP-address within the member states of the E.U. or other states which are signatories to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to the Google server in the U.S. and shortened there. On the instructions of the operator of this website, Google uses this information to analyse your use of the website, to draw up reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services connected to website and internet use. The IP address conveyed by your browser in connection with Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
For exceptional cases, in which personal data are transferred to the U.S., Google complies with the E.U.-U.S. Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.
Our use of Google Analytics is on the basis of your consent, as obtained via our cookie banner (Art. (6)(a) GDPR). Below, we describe how you can withdraw your consent:
At any time, you can withdraw your consent for the use of web analysis, by downloading and installing the Google browser plugin, which will result in the installation of an opt-out cookie, or by choosing the corresponding setting in your browser software. Either option will prevent the use of web analyses only if you use the browser on which you have installed the plugin and only if you do not remove the opt-out cookie. We would like to call your attention to the fact that, in this case, you may not be able to make full use of all functions of this website.

4. Passing-on personal data
Aside from the cases mentioned in this privacy statement, ponturo will not pass on your personal data to third parties unless it is needed for purposes of contract fulfilment, the fulfilment of a statutory obligation or court order, or purposes of our own legal defence. Recipients of your personal data can however be supporting service providers of ours who, on our instructions, process personal data for specified purposes, such as in the context of maintenance to our IT systems. For every so-called contractual data processing they carry out, these third parties are contractually bound vis-à-vis ponturo to utilise personal data solely for the purpose agreed, not to pass on your personal data to other third parties without permission, and to make your personal data known to other third parties solely with our legally valid consent or if required by law, and in a manner that is in accordance with the law. Such service providers only receive access to such personal data as is required for the fulfilment of the activity in question. To the extent that, in the context of future data collection, additional categories of recipients of personal data should arise, we will notify you of this at the time of collection of such information for such purposes.
To the extent that, in the context of future data collection, additional categories of recipients of personal data should arise, we will notify you of this at the time of collection of such information for such purposes.
5. Your rights
You have, in accordance with the specific aspects of each case in question, the following data protection rights:
- the right to demand access to your personal data and/or copies of this data. This includes information about the purpose of the use of the data, the category of the data, their recipient(s) and those entitled to access them, as well as, if possible, the planned duration of their retention or, should this not be possible, the criteria for setting such duration;
- the right to demand the rectification or erasure of your personal data or the restriction of its processing, to the extent that its use is in contradiction of data protection legislation, in particular if this is because (i) the data are incomplete or incorrect, (ii) they are no longer required for the purposes for which they were collected, (iii) the consent upon which the processing in question was based has been withdrawn, or (iv) you successfully have invoked your right of objection to the data processing in question; in cases in which the data of third parties are processed, we shall pass on to such third parties your requests for rectification or erasure or restriction of the processing of your data, unless this appears impossible or would involve a disproportionate effort;
- the right to refuse your consent or – without consequences for the lawfulness of the data processings prior to the withdrawal – to withdraw your consent for the processing of your personal data at any time;
- the right not to be subjected to a decision based exclusively on automated processing which has legal effect on you or in a comparable manner severely hampers you;
- the right to request the personal data pertaining to you, with which you have provided us, in a structured, standardised and machine-readable format, as well as to transfer these data to another authorised party without hindrance from us; under certain circumstances, you also have the right to require us to transfer the personal data directly to another responsible party, to the extent that this is technically feasible;
- the right to lodge a complaint with the body overseeing the party responsible, or with the relevant oversight body in the member state where you reside or work, in the event that you feel that the processing of your personal data is in violation of the GDPR.
Right of objection:
If the processing of your personal data is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR (Processing for the purpose of safeguarding the legitimate interests of the party responsible), you have the right, at any time, on grounds issuing from your own specific situation, to lodge objection. If your data are processed for purposes of direct promotion, you have the right, at any time, to lodge objection.
You can (i) exercise the aforementioned rights, (ii) pose questions or (iii) lodge a complaint against our processing of your personal data, by contacting us via the addresses indicated below.
6. Retention of your data
We do our best to keep our processing of your data to a minimum. To the extent that no concrete terms of retention are mentioned in this statement, we shall only retain your data for the period required to fulfil the purpose for which the data have been collected. Further, we shall continue to retain your data solely in the case of statutory, corporate or contractual terms of retention or to the extent that a more extensive retention is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
7. Security and confidentiality
To guarantee the security and confidentiality of the personal data recorded by ponturo online, ponturo deploys, amongst other things, data networks which are equipped with standardised protective mechanisms. ponturo also has appropriate measures in place to protect your personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access, disclosure, modification or destruction.
Should you wish to send us personal data electronically, by entering the data on our website, your data will be transferred via a state-of-the-art secure connection (SSL) in encrypted form over the internet to our webserver, and in turn stored and made secure. Please take note that, in contrast, sending such data by email will normally take place without encryption.
Data security for the transfer of data within the internet can, based on the present state of technology, not be comprehensively guaranteed. Other users have the technical wherewithal, in certain circumstances, to violate internet security and thus to control communication traffic. Kindly bear this in mind when contacting us.
