  • Data protection information for application processes

  • Purpose of and legal basis for data processing

    We process your personal data when you apply for a job or internship at our company, but only for the purpose of carrying out the application process and only within the scope of the application process.

    Your data are processed in order to fulfil our (pre-)contractual obligations within the scope of the application process in the sense of Art. 6(1) lit. b. GDPR and Art. 6(1) lit. f. GDPR, insofar as we are required to perform data processing – such as within the scope of legal proceedings (in Germany, section 26 BDSG [federal data protection act] also applies).

    The application process requires you to provide us with the data we need. When we offer an online form, the data we require from applicants are marked, otherwise they follow from the job description and generally include personal details, postal and contact addresses, and documents that are part of the application, such as cover letter, curriculum vitae, and certificates. You can also provide us with additional, voluntary information.

    If, during the application process, you voluntarily provide us with special categories of personal data in the sense of Art. 9(1) GDPR, these data will also be processed in accordance with Art. 9(2) lit. b GDPR (for instance, severe disability).

    You can submit your application to us using an online form on our website, where such a form is provided. Your data will be transmitted to us using the latest encryption technology.

    You can also send us your application via e-mail. However, please note that e-mails are generally unencrypted and that you must encrypt the data yourself (using 7Zip, for instance). Even if your e-mail is transmitted via TLS, we cannot guarantee that data transmission will be 100 percent secure. Of course, you can also send us your application documents by post.

  • Duration of data storage

    If your application is successful, we will continue to process your application documents for the purposes of the employment relationship. Otherwise, if your application for a job opening is unsuccessful, your applicant data will be deleted.

    Unless you have lodged a justified request for earlier deletion, your data will be deleted after a period of six months, so that we may answer any follow-up questions about the application and meet our obligations to provide evidence under the Equal Treatment Act. Invoices for any reimbursement of travel expenses will be archived in accordance with tax law requirements.

  • Talent Pool

    As part of the application process, we offer you the option of being included in our talent pool for a period of two years on the basis of your consent in the sense of Art. 6(1) lit. a. GDPR.

    Please note that consent to be included in the talent pool is provided voluntarily, that it has no influence on your current application process, and that you can revoke your consent to be included in the talent pool at any time.

  • Obligation to provide data

    You provide data for your application voluntarily. However, we do require these data in order to be able to fulfil our obligations if you wish to apply for a job with us.

    You can set your browser to notify you when cookies are set and to only allow cookies individually, to only accept cookies in certain cases, or to always block cookies.

  • Information about the cookies used on our website

    You can find the overview of the cookies we use here: www.zoo-berlin.de/en/cookies

  • Fast Fonts

  • Purpose of and legal basis for data processing

    For the display of fonts, this website uses web fonts provided by Monotype GmbH (fonts.com or fast.fonts.net). When you access a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display text and fonts correctly. To do so, the browser you use must connect to the fonts.com servers. In this way, fonts.com gains the information that our website was accessed from your IP address.

    We use Fonts.com web fonts in the interest of providing a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6(1) lit. f. GDPR.

    Further information on the web fonts can be found at www.fonts.com/info/legal, in the privacy policy of Fonts.com at www.fonts.com/info/legal/privacy/, and in the privacy policy of Monotype GmbH at https://www.monotype.com/legal/privacy-policy/.

     

  • Legitimate interests in data processing

    Insofar as the data processing is based on Art. 6(1) sentence 1 lit. f. GDPR, our legitimate interests comprise the uniform and appealing presentation of our website.

  • Obligation to provide data

    You provide your data voluntarily. You can, of course, opt to view our website without cookies. In general, you can also deactivate the use of cookies at any time via your browser settings.

    Please note, however, that specific functions of our website may not work if you have deactivated the use of cookies.

  • Google Analytics

  • General

    This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service from Google Ireland Limited (hereinafter referred to as “Google”). This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus analyse a user’s activities across devices.

    Google Analytics uses cookies – small text files that are stored on your device and that we employ to analyse how you use our website. Information generated by a cookie about your use of the website is normally forwarded to a Google server in the United States, where the information is then stored. Whenever IP anonymisation is activated on this website, however, Google shortens IP addresses within the member states of the European Union and in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before they are forwarded. Please note that on this website Google Analytics has been extended to include IP anonymisation in order to ensure that IP addresses are recorded anonymously (“IP masking”). Google does not associate the IP address that your browser sends to Google Analytics with any other data held by Google. Here you can find more detailed information on terms of use and data protection.

  • Purpose of and legal basis for data processing

    Google uses this information for the purpose of evaluating how you use our website and compiling reports on website activity on our behalf, as well as providing us with other services relating to website activity and internet usage.

    The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6(1) sentence 1 lit. a. GDPR.

  • Transfer to a third country

    Insofar as personal data are transferred to Google servers in the United States and stored and processed there, we and Google have concluded the standard data protection clauses adopted by the European Commission, which permit the transfer of personal data to the United States in individual cases.

  • Duration of data storage

    We can view the data processed by Google Analytics for 14 months.

  • Withdrawal of consent

    You can prevent cookies from being stored by changing the relevant settings in your browser. However, please note that doing so may prevent you from using all of the functions on this and other websites to their full extent. In addition, you can prevent information generated by a cookie and relating to your use of the site (including your IP address) from being sent to and processed by Google. To do so, click on the following link, then download and install the opt-out browser add-on: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

    We also offer you the option to disable the recording of information on how you use this website. To do so, click on the following link: Disable Google Analytics. This sets a special opt-out cookie that prevents your usage data from being collected when you visit this website in the future.

  • Obligation to provide data

    You provide your data voluntarily. You can, of course, opt to view our website without cookies. In general, you can also deactivate the use of cookies at any time via your browser settings.

    Please note, however, that specific functions of our website may not work if you have deactivated the use of cookies.

  • Double Click

  • General

    Besides the standard Google Analytics configuration, this website uses Google Analytics functions that support interest-based advertising and advertising based on users’ browsing habits.

  • Purpose of and legal basis for data processing

    Google Analytics does this using a third-party cookie from DoubleClick, which allows it to analyse the browsing patterns of users as they visit different websites. The information provided in this way enables statistical statements to be generated about demographic data and the interests of website users.

    Some visitors to our website may see our advertising on other websites after they visit our site. This type of advertising is called remarketing or retargeting.

    The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6(1) sentence 1 lit. a. GDPR.

  • Transfer to a third country

    Insofar as personal data are transferred to Google servers in the United States and stored and processed there, we and Google have concluded the standard data protection clauses adopted by the European Commission, which permit the transfer of personal data to the United States in individual cases.

  • Duration of data storage

    We can view the data processed by Google Analytics for 14 months.

  • Withdrawal of consent

    We would like to emphasise that we cannot view any information about individual users, nor can we trace the statistical data we use back to specific users.

    If you do not wish to see the adverts, we recommend you use one of the options described above that allow website users to disable website tracking. In addition, Google offers you the option to control advertising cookies for yourself: http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/technologies/ads/

     

  • Obligation to provide data

    The provision of your data is voluntary. You can, of course, opt to view our website without cookies. In general, you can also deactivate the use of cookies at any time via your browser settings.

    Please note, however, that specific functions of our website may not work if you have deactivated the use of cookies.

  • Online marketing

  • General

    We process personal data for online marketing purposes, which may include, in particular, marketing of advertising space or displaying promotional and other content (collectively referred to simply as “content”) based on potential user interests and measuring the effectiveness of the content.

  • Purposes of and legal basis for data processing

    For these purposes, we create user profiles and store them in a file (“cookie”) or use similar processes to store user information that is relevant to the presentation of the aforementioned content. This information may include, for example, content viewed, websites visited, online networks used, as well as communication partners and technical information such as your browser, computer system, and information on usage times. If you have consented to the collection of your location data, these data may also be processed.

    Your IP address is also stored. However, we use available IP masking techniques (pseudonymisation by shortening your IP address) to protect users. In general, we do not store any plain user data (such as e-mail addresses or names) within the scope of the online marketing platform, but rather pseudonyms. This means that we, as well as the providers of our online marketing platforms, do not know the actual identity of the users, but only the information stored in their profiles.

    The information in these profiles is usually stored in cookies or via similar processes. These cookies can generally be read later on by other websites that use the same online marketing platform. They can be analysed to display content, or supplemented with further data and stored on the server of the online marketing platform provider.

    Plain text data may be assigned to profiles in exceptional cases. This can happen if, for example, a user is a member of a social network that uses our online marketing platform and the network connects the user’s profile with the aforementioned data. Please note that users may enter into additional agreements with providers, for instance by providing their consent during the registration process.

    In general, we only receive access to summarised information about the success of our advertisements. However, within the framework of conversion tracking, we can check which of our online marketing platforms have led to a conversion, which means, for example, entering into a contract with us. We only use conversion tracking to analyse the success of our marketing activities.

    Where we ask users for their consent to use third-party providers, the legal basis for processing user data is their consent. Otherwise, user data are processed on the basis of our legitimate interest (meaning our interest in efficient, economical, user-friendly services). In this context, also note the information that this data protection statement contains on our use of cookies.

    • Types of data processed: Usage data (such as websites visited, interest in content, access times), metadata / communication data (such as device information, IP addresses)
    • Data subjects: Users (such as website visitors, users of online services)
    • Purposes of processing: Marketing, profiles with user-related information (creating user profiles), conversion tracking (measuring the effectiveness of marketing activities)
    • Security: IP masking (pseudonymisation of IP addresses)
    • Legal basis: Consent (Art. 6(1) sentence 1 lit. a. GDPR), legitimate interests (Art. 6(1) sentence 1 lit. f. GDPR)

    • Google Tag Manager: We use Google Tag Manager to manage website tags via an interface and thus to integrate other services in our online offer (please refer to further details in this data protection statement).

We also track ad conversion. However, we only learn the anonymous total number of users who clicked on our ad and were redirected to a page marked with a conversion tracking tag.

  • Google Maps

  • Purposes of and legal basis for data processing

    To better display our locations geographically and to make it easier for you to find them, we have integrated map material from the Google Maps service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Republic of Ireland (hereinafter referred to as “Google”) in our website via an API. When you visit a page on our website with such map material, it tells Google that you have accessed that material. In particular, your IP address is sent to a Google server. This happens regardless of whether you are signed into your Google account or whether you even have a Google account. If you are signed into Google, your data will be directly associated with your account. If you do not wish your data to be associated with your Google profile, you must sign out of your Google account after using the relevant Google service. Google stores your data in usage profiles and uses them for advertising, market research, and/or to make its website more user-friendly. Such analysis is performed, in particular (even for users who are not signed in), to provide appropriate advertising and to inform other users in its social network about your activity on our website.

    Further information on how Google processes data can be found in Google’s privacy policy.

    The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6(1) sentence 1 lit. a GDPR.

  • Transfer to a third country

    Insofar as personal data are transferred to Google servers in the United States and stored and processed there, Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Republic of Ireland and the Google companies based in the United States have concluded the standard data protection clauses adopted by the European Commission, which permit the transfer of personal data to the United States in individual cases.

  • Duration of data storage

    We do not store any personal data via our integration of Google Maps.

    Further information on how long Google stores data can be found in Google’s privacy policy.

  • Withdrawal of consent

    You can revoke the consent you have given at any time by using our Cookie Consent Tool.

  • Obligation to provide data

    You provide your data voluntarily. Of course, you can also view our website without Google Maps.

    Please note that certain features on our website may not work if you have disabled scripts – such as the one used by Google Maps.

  • YouTube

  • General

    We have integrated components from YouTube on this website. YouTube is an online video platform that allows video publishers to post videos free of charge and other users to view, rate, and comment on them, also free of charge. YouTube allows users to publish all types of videos, which is why complete film and television programmes, as well as music videos, trailers, and videos made by users can be accessed via the site.

  • Purposes of and legal basis for data processing

    YouTube’s operating company is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Republic of Ireland.

    Each time a page with an integrated YouTube component (YouTube video) is opened on this website, which is operated by the controller, that YouTube component automatically causes the internet browser on the data subject’s information technology system to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. Further information on YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/about/. During this technical process, YouTube and Google receive information regarding which specific page on our website the data subject is visiting.

    If the data subject is signed into YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognises which specific page on our website the data subject is visiting when a page containing a YouTube video is opened. YouTube and Google collect this information and associate it with the data subject’s YouTube account.

    The YouTube component always informs YouTube and Google that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is signed into YouTube while opening our website; this happens regardless of whether the data subject clicks on a YouTube video or not. Data subjects who do not want this information to be transmitted to YouTube and Google can prevent that by signing out of their YouTube account before accessing our website.

    We use YouTube in the interest of providing an appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6(1) lit. f. GDPR. If your consent has been requested, your data are processed exclusively on the basis of Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR, and you can revoke your consent at any time.

    Further information on YouTube’s data protection practices can be found in its privacy policy at https://policies.google.com/privacy.

  • Twitter

  • General

    We use the technical platform and services of Twitter Inc., One Cumberland Place, Fenian Street, Dublin 2 D02 AX07, Republic of Ireland (hereinafter referred to as “Twitter”) to provide information to interested parties and customers.

  • Responsibilities of Twitter

    Please note that you are individually responsible for your use of the Twitter microblogging service offered here and of its features. This applies in particular when you use Twitter’s interactive features (such as sharing and liking).

    You can find information about which data Twitter processes and for what purposes in Twitter’s privacy policy.

    We have no influence over the type and scope of data processed by Twitter, the type of processing and use, or the transfer of such data to third parties. In this respect, neither do we have any effective means of control.

    When you use Twitter, Twitter Inc. collects, transfers, stores, discloses, uses, and transfers your personal data, regardless of your place of residence, to the United States, the Republic of Ireland, and any other country where Twitter Inc. does business, where it is stored and used.

    Twitter processes the data that you entered voluntarily, such as your name and username, e-mail address, and telephone number, as well as your contacts if you upload or synchronise them.

    Twitter also evaluates the content you share to determine which topics you are interested in; it stores and processes confidential messages that you send directly to other users; and it can determine your location using GPS data, information on wireless networks, or your IP address in order to send you advertising or other content.

    Twitter Inc. may use analytics tools such as Twitter Analytics or Google Analytics to analyse the data it collects. Here too, we have no influence on the use of such tools by Twitter Inc., nor have we been informed of such potential use. If Twitter Inc. uses tools of this type for our account, we have not commissioned or supported such use. Nor does Twitter make such analyses available to us. Only certain non-personal information about tweet activity, such as the number of clicks on a profile or link through a particular tweet, is visible to us via our account. Moreover, we have no way to prevent or disable the use of such tools on this Twitter account.

    Finally, Twitter also receives information when you view content, for example, even if you have not created an account. These “log data” may include your IP address, your browser and operating system, information about the website you visited beforehand and the pages you viewed there, your location, your mobile provider, the device you are using (including the device ID and application ID), the search terms you used, and cookie information.

    Twitter buttons or widgets embedded in websites, as well as the use of cookies, enable Twitter to record your visits to these websites and associate them with your Twitter profile. These data can be used to offer you customised content and advertising.

    There are ways for you to limit how Twitter processes your data, such as in your general Twitter account settings or by selecting “Security and Privacy”. You can also limit Twitter’s access to the contacts, calendar, photos, location data, etc. on your mobile device (smartphone, tablet) in the settings there. Note that these options vary according to the different operating systems.

    Further information on these points is available on the following Twitter support pages:

    You can find out how to view your own data on Twitter here.

    Information about the inferences that Twitter makes about you is available here.

    Information on your personalisation and privacy options can be found here (with further references).
