GOLDBECK processes personal data that we receive from you as a contractual partner. This data is supplemented by personal data that we obtain from publicly accessible sources, which notably include the commercial register, the press and the media. If you submit an offer in response to a call for tender by GOLDBECK and/or receive or place the order for the provision of services, or if you visit our home page, customer portal or supplier portal, we will collect and store the following information:
We process your personal data so that we can:
Your personal data is processed in compliance with the regulations of the national data protection laws as well as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR), applying the following provisions:
Insofar as you have expressly or implicitly given GOLDBECK consent to process personal data for specific purposes, this processing is lawful on the basis of your consent. Any consent given can be revoked at any time. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent that were granted to GOLDBECK before the EU General Data Protection Regulation came into force, i.e. before 25 May 2018.
Upon your request or after commissioning for a specific project or other delivery and service, the data agreement is made for the purposes stated under Section II and is necessary for the appropriate handling of the project and for the mutual fulfilment of obligations arising from the contract.
Based on the contractual relationship already established between you and GOLDBECK in the past, GOLDBECK has a legitimate interest in processing and transmitting your personal data within the GOLDBECK Group for internal administrative purposes. The processing of your personal data is necessary to be able to continue to share calls for tender with you for potential projects and to continue our cooperation in the future.
GOLDBECK processes your personal data for the fulfilment of legal obligations, e.g. for infection control for the purpose of implementing corresponding Covid measures.
As a data subject within the meaning of the Data Protection Act, you have the right:
Once you have given your consent, you may revoke it from GOLDBECK at any time. From this point on, GOLDBECK may no longer continue to process your data based on this consent.
You can request information about your personal data processed by GOLDBECK. You may notably request information about the processing purposes, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the planned storage period, the existence of a right to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing or objection, the existence of a right of complaint, the origin of your data if it has not been collected by us, as well as the existence of automated decision-making including profilers and, if applicable, meaningful information about their details.
You can request the correction of any incorrect personal data or the completion of any incomplete personal data stored by GOLDBECK with immediate effect.
You may request the deletion of your personal data stored by GOLDBECK unless processing it is necessary for exercising the right to freedom of expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest, or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
You may request the restriction of the processing of your personal data insofar as the accuracy of the data is disputed by you, the processing is unlawful, but you object to its erasure and we no longer require the data for our processing purposes, but you need it for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims, or you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 of the EU GDPR.
You have the right to receive your personal data that you have provided to GOLDBECK in a structured, conventional and machine-readable format or to request that it be transferred to another controller.
You can complain to a supervisory authority. As a rule, you can contact the supervisory authority of your usual place of residence or workplace or the registered office of our company.
Insofar as your personal data is processed on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6, para. 1, item 1, lit. f) of the EU GDPR, you have the right to object to your personal data being processed pursuant to Art. 21 of the EU GDPR. This applies insofar as there are grounds for doing so that arise from your particular situation or the objection is made against direct advertising. In the latter case, you have a general right of objection, which is implemented by us without the need to specify the particular situation.
If you wish to exercise your right to object, simply send an email to:
Your personal data collected by GOLDBECK will be stored by us beyond the end of our business relationship for a period of 10 calendar years and then deleted, unless GOLDBECK is obliged to store the data for a longer period pursuant to Art. 6, para. 1, item 1, lit. c) of the EU GDPR due to tax or commercial law retention and documentation obligations.
Furthermore, a longer retention period may be necessary for the preservation of evidence under national statutes of limitation.
GOLDBECK will not disclose your personal data to third parties for purposes other than those listed below. GOLDBECK will only pass on your personal data to third parties:
If we work with commissioned data processors, we ensure by means of separate contracts (known as commissioned data processing agreements) that your data is protected by the processor in the same way as it is protected by us.
As a matter of principle, data is not transferred to bodies in countries outside the EU. Transfers may take place under the following conditions, among others:
Communication with GOLDBECK by email is always encrypted, provided your server supports encryption.
We use plug-ins for the social networks Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Xing, LinkedIn, YouTube and Kununu on our website on the basis of Art. 6, para. 1, item 1, lit. f) of the EU GDPR. The purpose of this is to raise the profile of our company and to enable us to analyse, optimise and improve the commercial efficiency of our website. The legal purpose behind this is to be regarded as a legitimate interest as defined in the EU GDPR.
The respective providers of these plug-ins are responsible for ensuring that they operate on data-protection-compliant basis. We integrate these plug-ins using the two-click method to ensure we can protect visitors to our website to the best possible extent.
a) Facebook social plug-ins
Our website uses social media plug-ins from the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Central Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (‘Facebook’). The plug-ins can display interaction elements or content (e.g. videos, graphics or text contributions) and are recognisable by one of the Facebook logos (white ‘f’ on a blue tile, the term ‘Like’, or a ‘thumbs up’ sign) or else are marked with the addition of ‘Facebook social plug-in’. The list and appearance of Facebook social plug-ins can be viewed here:
Facebook uses standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission and, where applicable, relies on adequacy decisions issued by the European Commission regarding specific countries for data transfers from the EEC to the US and other countries.
When you launch a function on this website that contains a plug-in like this, your device establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted by Facebook directly to your device and integrated by it into the website. User profiles can be created from the processed data in the process. We therefore have no influence on the scope of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plug-in and any information we provide to you in this regard is according to the best of our knowledge.
By integrating the plug-ins, Facebook receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of the website. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plug-ins – for example, by clicking the Like button or posting a comment – the corresponding information is transmitted from your device directly to Facebook and stored there. If you are not a member of Facebook, there is still a possibility that Facebook will learn and store your IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymised IP address is stored in Germany.
If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to collect data about you via this website and link it to your membership data stored with Facebook, you must log out of Facebook and delete its cookies before using our website. Further settings and objections to the use of data for advertising purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings:
https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads or via the US site http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU site http://www.youronlinechoices.com/.
The settings are platform-independent, i.e. they are applied to all devices such as desktop computers and mobile devices.
Our website may use functions and content of the Instagram service, offered by Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland. This may include content such as images, videos, texts and buttons, which you can use to show your appreciation and subscribe to the authors of the content or our posts.

Our website may use functions and content of the Twitter service, offered by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.

You can also use the button to access the GOLDBECK Twitter account.
If you are a member of the Twitter platform and you launch any of the above-mentioned content or functions, Twitter can link this activity to your profile there.
Twitter uses standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission and, where applicable, relies on adequacy decisions issued by the European Commission regarding certain countries for data transfers from the EEC to the US and other countries.

e) LinkedIn Insight Tag
This website uses the Insight tag from LinkedIn. The provider of this service is LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland.
Data processing by LinkedIn Insight Tag
With the help of the LinkedIn Insight Tag, we receive information about visitors to our website. If a website visitor is registered with LinkedIn, we can, among other things, analyse the key professional data (e.g. career level, company size, country, location, industry and job title) of our website visitors and thus better tailor our site to the respective target groups. Furthermore, we can use LinkedIn Insight Tags to measure whether visitors to our websites make a purchase or take any other action (conversion measurement). Conversion measurement can also be done across devices (e.g. from PC to tablet). LinkedIn Insight Tag also offers a retargeting function that allows us to display targeted advertising to visitors to our website outside of the website, whereby, according to LinkedIn, no identification of the advertising addressee takes place.
LinkedIn itself also collects so-called log files (URL, referrer URL, IP address, device and browser properties and time of access). The IP addresses are shortened or (if they are used to reach LinkedIn members across devices) hashed (pseudonymised). The direct identifiers of LinkedIn members are deleted by LinkedIn after seven days. The remaining pseudonymised data is then deleted within 180 days.
Data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. Details can be found here: www.linkedin.com and www.linkedin.com.
You can object to the analysis of usage behaviour and targeted advertising by LinkedIn at the following link: www.linkedin.com.
We have concluded an order processing agreement (AVV) with the above-mentioned provider. This is a contract required by data protection law, which ensures that the provider only processes the personal data of our website visitors in accordance with our instructions and in compliance with the GDPR.
