Privacy information

Welcome to AutoVision – Der Personaldienstleister GmbH & Co. OHG, Major-Hirst-Straße 11, 38442 Wolfsburg, Germany,

We deem it a matter of course to follow statutory data protection provisions to protect your personal data. Your personal data are stored and processed in accordance with the statutory data protection provisions, particularly the Telemedia Act (TMG), the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EUGDPR), and the supplementary regulations of the Federal Data Protection Act of Germany (BDSG neu).

This privacy policy consists of a general and a special section. The guidelines in the General Section apply to any visit to our website, irrespective of whether you apply for a job directly through our job portal or would like to create a personal application profile, simply view job openings, or visit our website for a different reason. In the Special Section of this privacy policy, we inform you how your personal data is collected, processed, and utilised when you use our applicant portal.

I.    General Section

1. How your personal data is collected, processed, and used
Your personal data includes information such as your name, your address, your telephone number, or your e-mail address. We only collect, process, and/or use personal data if you provide this to us of your own volition, e.g. for justification purposes, to formulate the content of or change a contractual relationship concluded between yourself and us, or to use personalised services. Furthermore, your personal data will be processed only if you have previously given your consent.

2. Use of session cookies

Cookies are small text files which websites store onto a computer in order to

  • Make the site usable in the first place, for example by using cookies to store the status of a shopping cart during a session or to specify that no cookies may be stored (necessary cookies) or
  • To be able to define long-term preferences, such as the user’s language output or to personalise content (preference cookies)
  • Or to enable the analysis of website usage (statistics cookies)
  • Or to be able to provide third parties with user information (marketing cookies).

We would also like to explain the specifics of the integration of Universal Analytics (Google Analytics) as well as the use of our social media plugins.

3. Universal Analytics (Google Analytics)

a) Google Tag Manager

For the purposes of transparency, we would like to make it clear that this website uses Google Tag Manager. Google Tag Manager itself does not gather any personal data. Tag Manager makes it easy for us to integrate and manage our tags. Tags are small elements of code, which among other things, serve to track traffic and visitor behaviour, record the impact of online advertising and social channels, establish remarketing to, and alignment with, certain target groups as well as test and optimise websites. If you deactivate something, Google Tag Manager will take this deactivation into account. For further information on Google Tag Manager, refer to:

b) Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). On behalf of the website operator, Google will evaluate your use of the website in order to compile reports on the website activity and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with website and Internet use.

We would in particular like to point out that Google Analytics has been enhanced with the “gat._anonymizeIp();” code, to ensure the anonymised tracking of IP addresses (IP masking). In European Union member states or in other states which are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, your IP address will be shortened by Google. The full IP address is only transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. The IP address transferred by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google. Further information on terms of use and data protection can be found at   or at .

Google Analytics uses “Cookies”, text files, which are stored on your computer. The information generated about your use of this website in the cookie is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. You can reject the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser software. However, please note that if you do so, you may not be able to use all of the website’s full functionalities.

You can also prevent the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being transferred to Google, as well as this data from being processed by Google, by downloading and installing the browser add-on. If you click here, an opt-out cookie is set to prevent collection of your information when you visit this website in the future: or deactivate Google Analytics

The data that we collect as part of the Universal Analytics usage profile is automatically deleted after 26 months.

c) Bing

This website uses Bing Ads, a programme by Microsoft Corporation, Microsoft Way Redmond, WA 98052-7329, USA using Universal Event Tracking (UEN) to implement remarketing and closure tracking. A cookie is placed on the website visitor’s computer for this purpose when he or she visits our website via the Bing or Yahoo search engines. Data is collected and stored anonymously. By using the remarketing function, the user is presented with specially tailored offers in a subsequent search via one of the search engines mentioned above. Microsoft’s privacy policy regarding the handling of collected data can be viewed at the following link: Bing Ads can be deactivated at any time. To do so, follow the instructions here

d) Google Dynamic Remarketing

On our website, we use the “Google Ads” dynamic remarketing function, a service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The technology enables us to generate targeted advertising automatically after you visit our website. The ads are based on the products and services you clicked on when you last visited our website.

Google uses cookies to create interest-based ads. Google generally stores information, such as your web query, IP address, browser type, browser language, and the date and time of your request.
This information is only used to assign the web browser to a specific computer. It cannot be used to identify a person.

If you do not wish to receive user-based advertising from Google, it is possible to opt out of receiving ads via Google’s ad settings.

For further information on how Google uses cookies, you can read Google’s privacy policy by following the link below (

e) Google Ads & Conversion Tracking

To draw attention to our products, we place ads for Google Adwords and use “Google Conversion Tracking”, a service by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. These ads are displayed following search queries on websites in the Google advertising network. We can combine our ads with certain search terms. Cookies allow us to provide ads based on a user’s previous visits to our website.

If an ad is clicked on, Google puts a cookie on the user’s computer. Further information on the cookie technology used can also be found in Google’s notes on website statistics and in the data protection provisions.

Using this technology, we as a customer, and Google, gain information about when a user has clicked on an ad and been redirected to our websites. The information obtained in this process is used exclusively for statistical evaluation to optimise advertising. However, we do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users. The statistics that Google provides us with include the total number of users who clicked on one of our ads and, if applicable, whether they were redirected to a site on our website marked with a conversion tag. Based on these statistics, we can track which search terms led to particularly frequent clicks on our ad and which ads led to the user contacting us via the contact form.

If you do not want this to be tracked, you can reject the cookies needed for this technology, via your browser settings, for example. Then your visit is not included in the user statistics.

f) Indeed Conversion Tracking

This website uses conversion tracking from Indeed Ireland Operations Limited. It places a cookie whenever a user clicks on a job advertisement that we have placed with Indeed. These cookies become invalid after 30 days and are not used for personal identification purposes. Once an application is completed, the cookie sends this information to the conversion tracker, which counts the application receipt, i.e. one conversion. Every Indeed user receives a different cookie. Therefore, cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of Indeed ad customers. Information obtained via the conversion cookies is used to create conversion statistics. As a customer, we determine the total number of users that have clicked on our ad and completed an application. However, we do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users. Personal data and the IP address are not collected. The same applies for Indeed Ireland Operations Limited.

If you wish to opt out of tracking, you may object to this usage by deactivating the Indeed conversion tracking cookie via your web browser’s user settings. You will then not be added to the conversion tracking statistics. The web address below will provide you with additional information about Indeed’s privacy policy (

2. Your rights

You have the right to access, rectify, and erase information regarding the processing and use of your personal data at any time. You may assert these rights against AutoVision – Der Personaldienstleister GmbH & Co. OHG without payment via this e-mail address: or the following address: Major-Hirst-Straße 11, 38442 Wolfsburg, Germany.

Right to access: You have the right to receive information from us regarding the processing of your personal data.

Right to rectification: You have the right to request a rectification of any of your personal data that is inaccurate or incomplete.

Right to erasure: You have the right to request the erasure of your data if the preconditions set forth in Art. 17 GDPR apply. Afterwards, you may for example request the erasure of your data if they are no longer required for the purposes for which they were collected. Furthermore, you may request erasure if we process your data based on your consent and you revoke this consent.

Right to restrict processing: You have the right to request that the processing of your data be restricted if the preconditions set forth in Art. 18 GDPR apply. For instance, this is the case if you dispute the accuracy of your data. You may then request that the processing be restricted for as long as the accuracy of the data is verified.

Right to object: You have the right to object to the processing of your data if the processing concerns a predominant interest or if your data are used for direct advertising purposes. An objection is permissible if the processing is performed either in the public interest or in the exercise of public authority or due to a legitimate interest of AutoVision – Der Personaldienstleister GmbH & Co. OHG or a third party. If you object, we please ask that you send us your reasons for objecting to the data processing. Furthermore, you also have the right to object to data processing for direct advertising purposes. This also applies to profiling to the extent that it is associated with direct advertising.

Right to data portability: If the data processing is based on consent or the fulfilment of a contract and it is furthermore carried out by using automated processing, you have the right to receive your data in a structured, common, and machine-readable format and send it to another data processor.

Right to revocation: If the data processing is based on consent, you have the right to revoke the data processing associated with the consent at any time with effect for the future, free of charge.

Right to file a complaint: Furthermore, you have the right to file a complaint with a supervisory authority (e.g. the State Officer for Data Protection for Lower Saxony) regarding our processing of your data.

II. Special part – application activities in our job portal

1. Why is my data being collected and how is it processed?

We only process your personal data in our job portal if and when you have given us prior authorisation to do so. As such, the purpose of the data processing is also determined by your consent.

If you applied for a job that we advertised and provided us with your personal information only in connection with this recruitment process, then we will process your data only for the purpose of processing your application and giving you a quick reply with information on the desired job. To that end, your data will be stored in our applicant pool for a specifically defined period of time, including information that is added during the application process (e.g. from queries and documents submitted afterwards).

We would be happy to keep your applicant profile in our applicant pool, even after completing the application process, but of course this only occurs with your permission. In this case, your personal data will also be used to send you additional appropriate job openings. To do so, we specifically match your applicant profile with incoming job openings. This gives you the opportunity to be considered for jobs you may be interested in during the recruitment process, even without a separate application.

We process your data similarly if you send us a speculative application on our website.
If you have opted to subscribe to our free newsletter or job subscriptions, we will furthermore process your data for the purpose of providing you these things.

Lastly, we process your identification data, namely your e-mail address from the applicant profile you created, to send you the login details for your personal login area and afterwards give you the ability to log in at any time.

2. Who processes my data?

Your application will not be checked by machine, neither during the pre-selection process nor the subsequent selection process. Your application will be viewed and reviewed by HR employees and by employees and, if necessary, managers in the notified department of our company. All persons who are involved in processing applications are particularly obliged to maintain secrecy and process your data with strict confidentiality. If you have sent us an open application or have furthermore given us permission to use your applicant profile for searches for additional jobs as well, only your applicant profile will be automatically compared with incoming job openings. If there are matches, then additional processing will be carried out manually. Your data is stored on servers in Germany.

3. Is my data shared with third parties?

Personal data is not shared with third parties without your explicit consent. However, we can only process applications for jobs that must be filled through temporary staff assignment or personnel placement if you authorise us to send your personal data to the customers in question as well. Here, “customer” refers to the company from which the job opening originated.

In the case of speculative applications, we cannot yet predict which future job opening will match your applicant profile. To process speculative applications, we therefore require your consent to send the data to an indefinite number of our customers. The same applies if you have applied for a specific job but would like to be considered for other suitable jobs. In both cases, however, we will send your personal data only if you are interested in the job that is found. As such, we will contact you beforehand. We will,as a minimum, disclose to you the industry to which the client company belongs, its size, and the region in which the customer is headquartered, if this information is not already in the job opening.

Please be assured that we will send your personal data if and when the customer requires it only. Moreover, we always strive to provide our customers with anonymised profiles only.

We will not share your data with other third parties unless we are legally obligated to do so. We particularly guarantee that we will not sell your personal data or commercially exploit it in any other way.

4. When will my data be deleted?

Your personal data will remain saved for as long as an application is in the application process. If your application is successful, your applicant profile will be deleted immediately; otherwise, it will be deleted within 180 days. If you have previously or in the meantime applied to one or several additional jobs, the 180-day deletion time period will be determined by the last ongoing application process.

We will keep your applicant profile in our applicant pool for 24 months under the condition that you have consented to long-term storage of your personal data. Once this time period has lapsed, your applicant profile will be deleted, unless otherwise stipulated with you on an individual basis.

Furthermore, we will naturally delete your applicant profile at any time if you request that we do so. Moreover, you can fully or partially remove your personal data from your applicant profile yourself in your personal login area.

We reserve the right to anonymise your personal data instead of deleting it. In this case, your data will be altered in a manner that makes it impossible to identify you personally. Anonymised data is not personal data as set forth in the privacy policy; as such, an anonymisation fully complies with statutory erasure obligations.
