We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by email) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

The use of our website is generally possible without registration and without providing personal data. Even if you use our website in this way for purely informational purposes, however, personal data may be automatically collected and processed. Below you will find an overview of the type, scope, purpose and legal basis of data processing via our website.
3.1 Provision of our website
When you access our website through your device, the provider of the webpages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
– Browser type and browser version
– Operating system used
– Referrer URL
– Host name of the accessing computer
– Time of the server request
– IP address
This data is not merged with data from other sources.
The basis for this data processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO, which permits the processing of data on the basis of legitimate interests of the controller. Our legitimate interest lies in the provision and display of the website, the securing and maintenance of its technical operation, the investigation and elimination of errors, as well as the maintenance of security (e.g. by clarifying cases of abuse or fraud). Without the provision of this data, you will not be able to use our website. We do not use this data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your identity.
The collected data is usually deleted after seven days, unless we need it for a longer period of time to fulfill the above-mentioned purposes.
The internet sites partially employ so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our website more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and are saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies.” They are automatically deleted after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser on your next visit.
You can set up your browser to inform you about the settings of cookies, as well as to only allow cookies in individual cases, prevent the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or generally, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.
3.3 Analysis tools
This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). The purpose of our use of this tool is to enable the analysis of your user interactions on websites and in apps and, through the statistics and reports obtained, to improve our services and make them more interesting for you as a user.
Demographic characteristics in Google Analytics
This website uses the “demographic characteristics” function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be generated that contain statements about the age, gender and interests of those who visit the site. This data comes from interest-oriented advertising from Google as well as visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be attributed to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics by following the steps indicated in the section: “Granting and revoking your consent.”
We primarily record the interactions between you as a user of the website and our website using cookies, device/browser data, IP addresses and website or app activities. Google Analytics also collects your IP address to ensure the security of the service and to provide us, as the website operator, with information about which country, region or location the respective user comes from (so-called “IP location determination”). For your protection, however, we use the anonymization function (“IP masking”), i.e. Google truncates the display of the IP addresses to only include the last octet within the EU/EEA.
Order processing and processing of data in the USA
Google acts as our order processor according to our specifications, and for this, we have concluded a corresponding contract with Google. The information generated by cookies and the (usually shortened) IP addresses about your use of this website are usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and processed there. For such cases, Google has, according to its own statements, imposed a standard on itself that corresponds to the former EU-US Privacy Shield and has also promised to comply with applicable data protection laws in the international transfer of data. We have also agreed to so-called standard contractual clauses with Google, the purpose of which is to ensure compliance with an appropriate level of data protection in the third country.
Granting and revoking your consent
The storage of Google Analytics cookies is based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO. The revocation of your consent is possible at any time, without affecting the permissibility of the processing up until the revocation. In apps, you can reset the advertising ID under the Android or iOS settings. The easiest way to revoke your consent is to use our Consent banner or to install the Google browser add-on, which can be accessed via the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en/
3.4 Online advertising
For our online marketing, we use the integrated software solution HubSpot. The provider is HubSpot, Inc, 25 First St., 2nd floor, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02141.
Social Media Publishing & Reporting: All content and related activities on realworld one’s social media accounts on LinkedIn and Facebook are analyzed and summarized in reports via Hubspot. This includes information such as impressions, views, reactions and shares, which help us to optimize our content. The analyses are not carried out on an individual basis, but in aggregated data sets.
Contact forms: Your input on the forms on our website is collected by Hubspot and evaluated for the purposes of your inquiries.
If we obtain your consent for certain online marketing measures, the legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) a) DSGVO. Insofar as the data processing is carried out for the fulfilment of a contract with you, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO. In all other respects, data processing is based on the legal basis of Article 6 (1) (f) DSGVO, according to which the processing of personal data is possible even without the consent of the data subject if the processing is necessary for the protection of the legitimate interests of the controller or a third party, unless the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject outweigh these interests. Here, we invoke our interest in direct marketing in accordance with Recital 47 a.E. GDPR. Our legitimate interest derives from the fact that specific online marketing measures enable us to ensure the effectiveness of the campaigns we create, as well as the effective use of the resources deployed for this purpose. Furthermore, you will only be sent advertising that is potentially relevant and of interest to you. Your rights are protected by the fact that we have made the processing operations transparent here and that you can object to processing by Hubspot. If you do not want Hubspot to collect your data, you can prevent the storage of cookies at any time by using our consent tool or through your browser settings.
Order processing and processing of data in the USA
We have carefully selected this provider and established contractually binding relations with them accordingly. The fact that the provider processes the data, and is also located, outside the European Union does not prevent the commissioning of this service. The contractual documents relevant for the commissioning of Hubspot contain the EU standard contractual clauses, so that the commissioning is possible in accordance with Article 46 of the GDPR. You can find the contract document here: https://legal.hubspot.com/de/dpa.
Joint responsibility with LinkedIn
By integrating the LinkedIn Insight tag, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with LinkedIn’s server, both when visiting the LinkedIn website as well as websites that have the LinkedIn Insight tag built in. We and LinkedIn are jointly responsible for the collection of your usage data when you visit our website and its transmission to the provider, but LinkedIn is solely responsible for the relevant processing to carry out the described objectives once the data has been transmitted. We therefore have no influence concerning the scope and nature of the use of the data by LinkedIn, and hereby inform you according to our state of knowledge: by integrating the LinkedIn Insight tag, LinkedIn receives the information that you visited the corresponding web page of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a LinkedIn service, LinkedIn can attribute the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with LinkedIn or have not logged in, there is the possibility that the provider learns your IP address, time slot and other identifying characteristics and links them to the actions attributed to you.
Processing of data in the USA
LinkedIn also processes your personal data in the USA and has imposed a standard on itself that corresponds to the former EU-US Privacy Shield. We have also agreed to so-called standard data protection clauses with LinkedIn, the purpose of which is to maintain an appropriate level of data protection in the third country.
Granting and revoking your consent
The deactivation of the LinkedIn Insight tag and other advertising objections are possible in the settings for advertisements at http://www.linkedin.com/help/linkedin/answer/62931?trk=microsites-frontend_legal_privacy-policy&lang=en and additionally at www.linkedin.com/psettings/guest-controls/retargeting-opt-out. Further setting options and information can be found at the LinkedIn Privacy Center: https://privacy.linkedin.com/de-de?lr=1/.
c) Facebook pixel
We want to show our services and products only to those people who are really interested in them. With the help of the Facebook pixel, our advertising measures can be better tailored to your wishes and interests. Thus, Facebook users (if they have allowed personalized advertising) get to see the appropriate advertising. In addition, Facebook uses the collected data for analytical purposes and its own advertisements.
Processing of data in the USA
The information collected is stored on Facebook servers, including in the USA. In such cases, the provider has, according to its own statements, imposed a standard on itself that corresponds to the former EU-US Privacy Shield and has promised to comply with applicable data protection laws in the international transfer of data. We have also agreed to so-called standard data protection clauses with Facebook, the purpose of which is to ensure compliance with an appropriate level of data protection in the third country.
Granting and revoking your consent
Our website uses plugins from YouTube, a site operated by Google, to provide embedded videos. The operator of the pages is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. When you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited.
If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to attribute your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
The legal basis for the processing of your data is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a DS-GVO. The revocation of your consent is possible at any time without affecting the permissibility of the processing up until the revocation. The easiest way to revoke your consent is to use our consent banner.
In addition to the purely informational use of our website, we offer various services and functions that you can use if you are interested. For this purpose, you usually have to provide additional personal data, which we use as described below.
4.1 Contact form
If you send us an inquiry by email or via a contact form, your details, including the contact data you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in the event of follow-up inquiries.
Your details will be processed by us for the purpose of handling your contact inquiry and its processing in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO and may also be passed on to affiliated companies or third parties in this context. In this respect, we may also store the information in our customer relationship management (CRM) system.
The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data is no longer applicable (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

4.3 Processing of applicant data
Candidates can apply for open positions on the careers page of the realworld one website. realworld one processes the submitted data of an application in order to check the applicant’s qualifications for the respective position or for other positions at realworld one. After receipt of the application, the applicant data is checked by the Talent Acquisition Team at realworld one. The number of employees who have access to the respective candidate’s profile is limited and depends on their necessity and relevance for the professional evaluation of the application.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data of applicants in the context of the application procedure is in particular Section 26 of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). According to this provision, data processing is permissible insofar as it is necessary in connection with the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship. Due to the legitimate interest of realworld one, additional information voluntarily provided by the applicant is stored and processed on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. In the context of the initial application or in the event of an unsuccessful application, the applicant can give realworld one consent for realworld one to continue to process the applicant’s personal data in realworld one’s Applicant Tracking System on the legal basis of Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. Candidates can request information about the stored data, update/correct candidate profiles or revoke their consent with effect for the future at any time without giving reasons.
If the application was rejected and no consent was given, the personal data of the applicants will be anonymized as a matter of course within the scope of the legal obligations regulated by the GDPR. If realworld one has consent to store and process the personal data of applicants in the Applicant Tracking System of realworld one, the data will be anonymized as soon as it is no longer required for the purposes for which it was collected and processed. Applicants are asked to provide electronic consent for the storage of data for two years from the date the consent was given. If the application procedure has led to a successful recruitment, the applicant’s data will be transferred to the personnel information system of realworld one and processed there to the extent necessary for the establishment and implementation of the employment relationship.
Within our company, only those persons have access to personal data who require it for the respectively stated purposes. We will only pass on your personal data to external third parties if this is necessary for the processing or handling of your request, if other legal permission for this exists or if we have your consent for this.
External recipients may include, in particular, affiliated companies or external service providers that we use to provide services as our processors, for example, in the areas of technical infrastructure and maintenance of our website. These processors are carefully selected and regularly audited by us. They may only use the data for the purposes specified by us and in accordance with our instructions.
Furthermore, it is possible that we may be forced to transmit personal data to authorities and state institutions, such as public prosecutors, courts or tax authorities, for legally compelling reasons. In these cases, the transmission takes place on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) DSGVO.
In addition, we may pass on your personal data to third parties if we offer promotions, competitions, contract conclusions or similar services together with partners or service providers (e.g. transport service providers). In these cases, the transfer of data takes place on the basis of consent, in order to carry out the execution of a contract with you or to protect our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a), b) and/or f) DSGVO. You will receive more detailed information regarding this when providing your personal data in connection with the specific processing operation.
