Which type of cookies does Engelbert Strauss use?
Our cookies are used in accordance with the GDPR and the TTDSG. We use the following category of cookies on our website:
Some functions on our website are not possible if cookies are not set. These are required so that the browser is recognised after changing websites. These functions include e.g. the possibility of placing products in the shopping cart or logging into your customer account on our website.
Functional cookies enable us to record and save your user settings, for instance the selected language, your username etc.
This also includes cookies that analyse the surfing behaviour of our users and transfer the following information, for example: Entered search terms; frequency of website call-ups; the use of website functions, the data and duration of the visit. This user data is processed anonymously. It is no longer possible to assign the data to the active user.
Personal cookies (for analysis and advertising purposes in a pseudonymous form)
The user data collected in this way is pseudonymised by technical means. This prevents data being assigned to the active user. The data is not saved with other data. This statistical data helps us to tailor our online sites to personal interests and quantify the efficiency of our advertising campaigns.
We use necessary and functional cookies to make visiting our website an attractive and user-friendly experience. They are also necessary to allow and facilitate the use of certain functions. We also use analysis and advertising cookies to create statistics on the use of our website. The analysis cookies show how our website is used so that we can continuously optimise our services.

We would therefore like to point out that the USA does not have an adequate data protection level within the meaning of the EU Regulation 2016/679, especially because there is a risk that, in certain statutory circumstances, the US authorities have the right to access your data for controlling and monitoring purposes, without there being any appropriate remedial measures.

c) Website analytics/online advertising
We use Google Analytics. This is an analytics service by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (Google). It produces pseudonymous user profiles for visitors to our website. Google uses permanent cookies (cf. II.3). The information generated by the cookie concerning your use of the website is processed by Google in the USA. This information is the data named above under II.2. Google also processes the search term you used to find our website via a search engine. We use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymisation. Google shortens your IP address within the European Union or the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. You can find further information on Google Analytics on the Google website at: support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.

How long will this data be stored? Do I have to provide this data?
The data is retained for a maximum of fourteen months. The provision of this data is not mandatory and is not required in order to conclude a contract with us.

You can also prevent the data produced by the cookie from being processed by downloading and installing the plug-in available via the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
We use a recruitment analysis application from VONQ GmbH, Georg-Glock-Straße 8, 40474 Düsseldorf. This enables us to determine, by means of anonymous statistics, which job advertisements visitors use to access our careers section and our application forms, thus determining the performance of our job advertisements.

You can prevent the analysis via your settings (see above, point II.3)."
12. Communication and questions via Messenger
You can also contact us via Messenger if you have any questions about the application process or about advertised positions. For this we use the messenger services "WhatsApp" from WhatsApp Inc. (1601 Wilow Road, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA) and "Signal" from the Signal Foundation (650 Castro Street, Suite 120-223 Mountain View, CA 94041 , USA) a. Your data is processed by the messenger services in the EU/EEA and partly in the USA.
If you contact us via one of these messengers and we answer your message, we use the messenger in this context on the basis of your consent in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Clause 1 Letter a) and Article 49 Paragraph 1 Clause 1. 1 lit. a) GDPR to answer your questions about the application process or an advertised position.
The mobile phone number transmitted when you contacted us will not be saved by us. We delete the other data immediately after the end of the communication, but after three days at the latest. Therefore, please do not send us any application documents via this messenger.
In the case of end-to-end encryption of content, the communication content is encrypted in such a way that the content of the message - not even for the respective provider of the messenger - is visible. For this you should always use a current version of the messenger with activated encryption, so that the encryption of the message content is ensured. In this context, we would also like to point out that the respective providers cannot view the content, but can find out when we are communicating with you and that - depending on the settings of your device - so-called metadata (e.g. technical information about the device used or location data) are processed.
You are also welcome to contact us in alternative ways, e.g. B. by phone or email.
13. "Talentcube" applicant app
In order to make the application process transparent for you, we also use the "Talentcube" applicant app from Talentcube GmbH (Leonardplatz 2, 80636 Munich). In addition to an overview of your application and the documents you have submitted, we use the app to conduct time-delayed video interviews and to be able to react quickly to requests, questions or criticism.
You will receive the invitation from us within the recruiting process via a link to the Talentcube platform. Here you can register once with your name, your e-mail address and a password so that we can set up an account for you in the career portal and manage it. In addition to the data mentioned, your contact details (address, telephone number, date of birth), application documents (CV, certificates, cover letter, application photos, etc.) and any links to other website profiles will also be processed.
If you are not interested in conducting a time-delayed video interview, you will not suffer any disadvantages. In this case, simply contact us so that we can find an alternative.
The legal basis for the processing of your data is the initiation of your employment relationship in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter b) GDPR in conjunction with Article 88 GDPR and Section 26 BDSG (new). If you have given us your consent for specific purposes (e.g. the transfer of your applicant data or the evaluation of voice recordings), the legality of this processing is given on the basis of your consent. You can revoke this at any time with effect for the future.
We have concluded a corresponding contract for order processing with the provider TalentCube GmbH, which means that they only process your data on our instructions. You can find more information about Talentcube's data protection regulations at: .
If your application is unsuccessful, your personal data will be deleted within six months after the rejection has been sent, unless you have given your consent that we may store your data for longer. We will be happy to add you to our pool of applicants and let you know if you are being considered for another position or if there is a need at a later date.
