I. General information and legal basis
The following statement informs you about what kind of personal data is collected for what purpose on this website by us as the responsible party and to what extent this data is made available to third parties.
1. Responsible entity:
AMANA consulting GmbH
Veronikastraße 36, 45131 Essen
Data Protection Officer
Veronikastraße 36, 45131 Essen
2. Legal bases of the processing
The processing of personal data requires a legal basis, which we would like to present to you below.
For processing of personal data for which we obtain the consent of the data subject, Article 6(1)(a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.
When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6(1)(b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also includes processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6 (1) lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the first-mentioned interest, Article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing. The legitimate interest of our company lies in the performance of our business activities as well as in the analysis, optimization and maintenance of the security of our online offer.
II. Log files, hosting
In the server statistics, data is automatically stored that the browser transmits to us as part of our legitimate interest in analysis and for security reasons (so-called "log files").
In detail, these are the following data:
- Language and version of the browser software
- Operating system used and its interface
- Referrer URL (the previously visited page)
- Host name of the accessing computer (IP address)
- Date and time of the server request
- Time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
- Content of the request (concrete page)
- Data volume transferred
- Access status/ HTTP status code.
As a rule, we cannot assign this data to specific persons. A combination of this data with other data sources is not made. The data is also deleted within 7 days after a statistical evaluation. Data whose further retention is required for evidentiary purposes is exempt from deletion until final clarification of the respective incident.
We make use of hosting services. These serve to provide infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services, security services and technical maintenance services to maintain the operation of this online offer.
In doing so, we or our hosting provider process inventory data, contact data, content data, contract data, usage data, meta data and communication data of customers, interested parties and visitors of this online offer on the basis of our legitimate interests in an efficient and secure provision of this online offer.
III. Contractual processing
The personal data provided by you for contractual purposes in the case of, for example, requests for quotations, such as name, address or e-mail address, will only be used internally to answer your inquiries, process your orders or provide you with access to certain contractual information.
IV. Contact, application data
When you contact us by e-mail or via the contact form, your information will be stored by us to answer your questions.
As a matter of principle, data will not be passed on to third parties unless applicable data protection regulations justify a transfer or we are legally obliged to do so. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. In the event of revocation, your data will be deleted immediately, unless there is a legal exception for further processing. Your data will otherwise be deleted when we have processed your request or the purpose of storage has ceased to apply and there are no other legal exceptions to the contrary.
2. Application data
You can also apply to us, e.g. via our contact form. The data entered will be processed and used exclusively for the purpose of applicant selection. With your application, you agree to be contacted and informed in writing and / or by telephone as part of the application process. Please note that your data will not be stored anonymously, but will be accessible to our human resources department and to the departments relevant to the position to be filled. We wish to evaluate all applicants only on the basis of their qualifications, regardless of race, ethnic origin, gender, religion or belief, disability, age or sexual identity. We therefore ask that you refrain from including such information in your application if at all possible. You can have your application changed or deleted at any time and revoke your consent. To do so, please contact our team.
We set cookies that are not strictly necessary only with your consent. You can revoke this consent at any time for future use.
Consent is voluntary and you can also use our website without accepting cookies. You can also configure your browser settings according to your wishes and, for example, refuse to accept third party cookies or all cookies or delete cookies that have already been stored. If you do not accept cookies, please note that in this case our offer may not work properly. If we do not provide any other information on the individual topics mentioned in this data protection declaration or in the cookie banner, the lifetime of the cookies refers to 24 months.
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on our website, we require a valid e-mail address from you that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified e-mail address or that the owner agrees to receive the newsletter.
After providing the e-mail address, we will send you a confirmation e-mail to the address provided, in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm this within 24 hours, your data relating to the newsletter dispatch will be automatically deleted. If you confirm your wish to receive the newsletter, we will store your e-mail address until you unsubscribe from the newsletter.
We send newsletters only with your consent or legal permission.
We work together with a shipping service provider. According to its own information, the shipping service provider may use this data in pseudonymous form, i.e. without assigning it to a user, to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimize the shipping and display of the newsletter or for statistical purposes to determine which countries the recipients come from. However, the dispatch service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them itself or to pass them on to third parties.
You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter. If users have only subscribed to the newsletter and cancelled this subscription, their personal data will be deleted.
Our website offers registration and login options for the download offers. The personal data entered during registration or login process will be transmitted to the controller. The data is stored exclusively for internal use by us.
When registering /logging in, the IP address of the user and the date and time are stored. This serves to prevent misuse of the services. The data will not be passed on to third parties. An exception exists if there is a legal obligation to pass on the data.
The registration of data is required for the provision of content or services. Registered persons have the possibility to have the stored data deleted or modified at any time. The data subject will receive information about the personal data stored about him at any time.
VIII. Our presences in social media
You can find us under online presences within social networks and platforms. With these presences, we would like to communicate with our customers, interested parties and users active there and inform them about our services and our company in this way.
The processing of the personal data of the users active there is based on our legitimate interests in communicating and providing information to and with the users. If users have given their consent to data processing on the respective social platform, the processing is carried out on the basis of this consent.
If you visit one of our social media sites, we are jointly responsible with the operator of the social platform for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. In principle, you can assert your rights (information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability and complaint, see the following point "Rights of the data subject") both against us and against the operator of the respective social platform.
We would like to point out that despite the joint responsibility, we do not have full influence on the data processing operations of the social platform and, if necessary, forward the rights request to the respective operator for better processing of the data subject rights. Our options are basically based on the corporate policy of the respective provider.
Depending on the following named social platform, the data processing of users may also occur outside the area of the European Union. EU standard contractual clauses have been agreed with the US companies, so that we have taken possible measures to ensure compliance with European data protection law.
As a rule, user data is processed by the platforms for market research and advertising purposes. For example, usage profiles can be created from the usage behavior and resulting interests of the users. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements within and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For this purpose, cookies are usually stored on the users' computers, in which the usage behavior and interests of the users are stored. Data can also be stored in the usage profiles regardless of the devices used by the users. This occurs in particular if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them.
For a detailed presentation of the respective processing and the objection options, we refer to the information of the providers linked below.
- Facebook (pages, groups)

The embedded videos from YouTube are used within the permitted use by YouTube, which all users must accept. If you see copyrights violated, please report this directly to YouTube. We use embedded YouTube videos in extended privacy mode. This means that YouTube does not store cookies for a user who views a website with an embedded YouTube video player, but does not click on the video to start playback.

EU standard contractual clauses have been agreed with Facebook, so that possible measures have been taken to ensure compliance with European data protection law.
a. Facebook Social Plugins
Our website uses social plug-ins ("plug-ins") from Facebook. The plug-ins are marked with a Facebook logo (white "f" on a blue tile, the terms "Like", "Like" or a "thumbs up" sign) or the addition "Facebook Social Plug- In".
When you call up a web page of our website that contains such a plug-in, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers.
The content of the plug-in is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser, which then integrates it into the website. This transmits personal information, such as your IP address, URL, date and time, as well as other browser-related information to Facebook and stores it in the U.S., whereby according to Facebook in Germany only an anonymized IP is collected.
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 directly from your browser to Facebook, stored there and, depending on your Facebook settings, shared with your Facebook contacts. If you do not wish this to happen, please log out of your Facebook account (before pressing the opt-in button).
You can additionally change your privacy settings on Facebook in your account settings.
Functions of the Twitter service are integrated on our pages. These functions are offered by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA ("Twitter"). EU standard contractual clauses have been agreed with Twitter, so that possible measures have been taken to ensure compliance with European data protection law.
When you visit a web page of our website that contains such a plug-in, your browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of Twitter.
Twitter stores tailored content only along with browser cookies or device IDs and separates this from other data, such as information about pages visited. After a maximum of 10 days, Twitter begins deleting, unidentifying, or collecting this data.
By using Twitter and the "Re-Tweet" function, the websites you visit are linked to your Twitter account and made known to other users. In the process, data is also transferred to Twitter. If you do not wish this to happen, please log out of your Twitter account (before pressing the opt-in button).
You can change your Twitter privacy settings in your account settings at http://twitter.com/account/settings.

EU standard contractual clauses have been agreed with LinkedIn, so that possible measures have been taken to ensure compliance with European data protection law.
You can recognize the "LinkedIn" plug-ins by the LinkedIn logo or the "Recommend" button on our site. When you visit our pages, a direct connection between your browser and the LinkedIn server is established via the plug-in. LinkedIn thereby receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. LinkedIn stores this information in the USA. For LinkedIn members, LinkedIn places cookies when you visit our site unless you opt out of this feature in your LinkedIn settings. If you visit our site and are logged in as a LinkedIn member, LinkedIn will use this information to recommend content that is specifically relevant to you.

If you click the LinkedIn "Recommend Button" while logged into your LinkedIn account, you can link the content of our pages on your LinkedIn profile. This allows LinkedIn to associate the visit to our pages with your user account. If you do not want this, you must log out of your LinkedIn account. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the pages, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by LinkedIn. Details on data collection (purpose, scope, further processing, use) as well as your rights and setting options can be found in LinkedIn's privacy notices.
