Privacy Policy for the Companies of the ANTES Group

Data protection is an important issue for us. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the European General Data Protection Regulation and this privacy policy (EU-GDPR).

The processing of data takes place in particular to fulfil our contractual obligations towards our clients and users. Notwithstanding this, we process your data to protect our legitimate interests, weighing them against your interests. And, of course, in some cases we are legally obliged to process data (e.g. to disclose data to investigating authorities). In all other cases, we will obtain separate consent from you for data processing. As part of the performance of our contractual obligations, we always try to adapt our products and services to the needs of the client and user.

In order to use our online-based analysis process, it is necessary to provide personal data. The personal data on our homepage (first and last name and email address) is always collected on a voluntary basis. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent. This consent is always requested before starting the analysis and when entering your data.
We point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by email) can have security gaps. Complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible. We observe the regulations of the EU-GDPR and would like to inform you in this privacy policy in detail and transparently about the processing of your data within the framework of ANTES.

We only collect, process and/or use personal data if the user has consented or if this is permitted by law.

The use of personal data based on a legal permission takes place in particular in connection with the fulfilment of contractual obligations of ANTES towards the client. The processing and use of personal data of the user is necessary in order to be able to provide our services.

The processing of personal data takes place exclusively in Germany.

3.  Type of personal data collected, processed and used

Access data

In the context of the applications of ANTES that require registration, we must collect and process certain personal data from you as your access data.

On the basis of your input, a formulated results report is generated that contains your first and last name and the correct salutation. Based on the email address you have provided, we can send you the results report.

4.  Purpose of the collection, processing or use of personal data

We collect your personal data in different ways, e.g. via our websites and social media channels, via telephone and email, for applications and in connection with personally conducted interviews as well as in the course of interacting with customers. Unless otherwise stated, we collect, process or use the data that you have provided to us as a participant in personal diagnostic procedures (such as analyses, tests or assessments) and/or as an applicant to fulfil our contractual and/or legal obligations. Unless otherwise stated, we collect, process or use the personal data you have provided:

  • To process your registration with ANTES;

  • At your request and on the basis of your inputs, in order to be able to carry out personal diagnostic procedures (such as ANTES PROFILE);

  • In order to be able to provide and transmit result reports and further information in an appropriate form based on the results of the aforementioned procedures;

  • For anonymous internal statistical evaluation in order to carry out further validations of our ANTES PROFILE procedure;

  • To get in touch with you and keep in touch (e.g. name, postal address, email address and telephone number); 

  • Username and password when you log in to our websites; 

  • For providing personnel placement services;

  • To process and defend legal claims or to defend against lawsuits;

  • To join a specialised network in order to be able to offer you suitable job or project offers;

After completing the first application phase and in the event of a corresponding offer, we will of course contact you beforehand and obtain your consent;

  • To contact you with any queries in connection with ANTES;

  • To inform you about changes to this data protection notice or our terms of use.

5.   Passing on of your data to third parties

Who receives your personal data?

We only pass on your personal data to third parties if this is necessary for the fulfilment of our own business purposes (i.e. in particular to provide the services owed to you or our customers) (e.g. if we have your profile or your results from diagnostic procedures, e.g. in the course of your application process, to a company to which you are applying and which is our client), you have given your consent or we are obliged to do so by law or due to a judicial or official order.
If we work with external service providers in the context of data processing (e.g. in software development), this is usually done on the basis of so-called commissioned data processing, in which we remain the controller responsible for the data processing. We check each of these service providers beforehand for the measures they have taken for data protection and data security and ensure statutory contractual provisions are in place for the protection of personal data.

Other categories of recipients

  • State agencies and courts

  • Technical service providers

  • Hosting service provider

  • Ad server operator

  • Email dispatch service provider

  • CRM service provider

  • Software developer

Your personal data will not be passed on, for example to address traders or other companies for advertising purposes.

*  *  *  *

We use the following service providers to run the ANTES PROFILE behavioural preference analysis:

Ingress GmbH

Weidestraße 122a

22083 Hamburg

The service provider processes the data exclusively in accordance with our instructions and has been obliged to comply with the applicable EU-GDPR. The use of the service provider does not change the fact that we are the responsible controller within the meaning of the Federal Data Protection Act. We and the service providers commissioned by us take appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect our users’ data. We only transfer your personal data to third parties if we are obliged to do so by law (e.g. to courts or law enforcement authorities), if you have given us your consent or if this is legally permissible.

Security and data protection:
keyingress survey and telemarketing software (excerpt)

In the following, you will find an excerpt from the security and data protection concept of our contracted service provider Ingress. If you have a justified interest, we will be happy to provide you with the detailed privacy policy.

The Ingress company

Ingress is an IT service provider and develops software solutions for market research, human resources and telemarketing.  All software solutions from Ingress are web-based and are used as rental solutions (OnDemand) or as in-house solutions. In addition to the software, Ingress offers its customers various software-related services such as questionnaire programming or the management of online surveys.


When used as an on-demand solution, the software is accessed via the Internet. Ingress guarantees extensive security measures so that only authorised persons can access the system.  These can be divided into the areas of technical and spatial security, server security, data security and personnel security.

Technical and spatial security

The Ingress servers are located in a German high-performance data centre certified according to ISO 27001 with several spatially separated locations in the Nuremberg and Falkenstein/Vogtland area, which are connected to each other as a ring. The multiple redundant Internet connections, including those at the largest German exchange node DE-CIX and the direct connection to Telekom, ensure smooth operation.

The details of the connection are listed below:


• 400 GBit/s Core-Backbone

• 300 GBit/s Telia

• 200 GBit/s NTT

• 100 GäBit/s GTT

• 100 GBit/s TATA

A redundant uninterruptible power supply (UPS) with a battery buffer of 15 minutes and an emergency power generator ensure smooth server operation even in the event of a power failure. The data centres are air-conditioned with an average temperature of 22 degrees Celsius.

Surveillance cameras

24/7 monitoring and special door and locking systems prevent unauthorised access. The data centres are equipped with a modern early fire detection system with a direct connection to the local fire brigade. The data centres are spatially distributed and cannot be recognised as such from the outside.

Server security

The server is set up exclusively by Ingress without the use of a premade operating system image. Only the services required to operate the keyingress software are activated on the servers. These services are the web server and the database server. Other services such as email or FTP are deactivated on the Ingress servers. In addition, all servers are secured from the outside by means of a firewall. The reduction to the required services prevents unauthorised access to the server via additional services. Permanent server monitoring ensures that unauthorised server access is recognised in good time and suitable countermeasures are taken. All servers are checked monthly for security gaps.
Direct server access for the purpose of server configuration can only be carried out by trained Ingress employees. Direct server access is only possible via Ingress’ local IT systems.
All Ingress employees who have direct access to the servers are committed to data confidentiality and data protection. The “Server administration” work instruction regulates which employee has which rights. The employees in the data centres have no access to the servers and the data on the servers. Ingress guarantees permanent availability of 99.5% of the keyingress software over the Internet.

Data security and anonymity

Ingress servers are equipped with a RAID1 hard drive system, which reduces the likelihood of data loss to a minimum. Ingress ensures a daily backup of the data on the server on a backup server. The backups/logs are saved for 30 days and then completely deleted. Ingress also guarantees real-time data mirroring on a second productive system. In the event of a server failure, work can be continued on the second system via a replacement link with a time delay of approx. 120 minutes. Ingress anonymises personal data as early as possible for the implementation of the respective research project. Until then, personal data will be stored separately from the survey data so that the information from the respondents cannot be assigned to individual persons. The individual survey links in online surveys with email invitations cannot be used to identify the persons from outside. The disclosure of information by manipulating this link is also excluded. No macros or program code, e.g. SQL or PHP code, can be executed in open questions in online surveys. PHP code cannot be executed in layout HTML templates either.

Personnel security

Ingress observes the data protection regulations. In addition, the persons working at Ingress have been obligated in writing in accordance with the GDPR to comply with the data protection requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation. Insofar as Ingress processes personal data when carrying out projects, Ingress acts on behalf of the client within the meaning of Art. 28 GDPR. Ingress will therefore use the personal data only within the framework of the agreements made or other written instructions from the client and in accordance with data protection regulations. Ingress also guarantees that all information received will be kept secret indefinitely. In addition to the operational organisational processes, this applies in particular to all information that is considered confidential or is identifiable as a trade or business secret. As far as the projects do not require it, no records and notifications are transmitted to third parties.

6.   Use of analysis tools on our websites

On our website (, the SalesViewer® technology from SalesViewer® GmbH is used to collect and save data for marketing, market research and optimisation purposes based on the legitimate interests of the website operator (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR).
For this purpose, a JavaScript-based code is used, which is used to collect company-related data and the corresponding use. The data collected with this technology is encrypted using a non-recalculating one-way function (so-called hashing). The data is immediately pseudonymised and not used to personally identify the visitor to this website.
Functionality: As part of the SalesViewer®, a JavaScript-based tracking code is used on the website of a company, with the help of which the following information (hereinafter visitor data) is determined as part of the procedure described below:

  • Name, origin and industry of the visiting company

  • Referrer

  • Keyword

  • Visitor behaviour (e.g. subpages visited, time of visit, duration of visit)

No cookies or similar files are stored on the website visitors’ end devices. Instead, the visiting company is identified by comparing it with generally accessible information as described below. For this purpose, the website visitor’s online identification is encrypted using a one-way function that can no longer be recalculated (so-called hashing) and, after a preselection through which private access is filtered out, transferred to the provider in a pseudonymised manner. These online identifiers are compared by the provider with a database limited to company-related data. As far as company-related accesses can be identified within the scope of this procedure, the website operator is provided with corresponding company-related data about the website visit on an internet platform of the provider, on which it is also possible to research further generally accessible data (e.g. address and contact data) about the companies visiting the website. The SalesViewer® is designed to identify the companies on the visiting website. If only company data is collected and processed, it is not relevant under data protection law due to the lack of personal reference. Otherwise, visitor data is only collected and processed in pseudonymised form.

The data collection and storage can be objected to at any time with effect for the future by clicking this link to prevent future collection by SalesViewer® within this website. An opt-out cookie for this website is stored on your device in this case. If you delete your cookies in this browser, you will have to click on this link again.

7.   What rights can you assert?

You have, among other things, legal claims to information, rectification, erasure, restriction of processing, objection to processing as well as a right to data portability. You can also revoke any consent you may have given to the processing at any time and lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.

Right to object

You can object at any time to the processing of your personal data based on Art. 6 (1) (f) EU-GDPR.

Right to be informed

On request, you will receive clear information about the processing of your personal data.

You also have the right to the following information:

  • The processing purposes

  • The categories of personal data that are processed

  • The recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data has been disclosed or is still being disclosed, in particular to recipients in third countries or to international organisations

  • If possible, the planned duration for which the personal data will be stored or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining this duration

  • The existence of a right to rectification or erasure of the personal data concerning you or to restriction of processing by the responsible controller or a right to object to this processing

  • The existence of a right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

  • If the personal data is not collected from the data subject, all available information on the origin of the data

  • The existence of automated decision-making including profiling in accordance with Art. 22 (1) and (4) EU-GDPR and – at least in these cases – meaningful information about the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for the data subject

If personal data is transmitted to a third country or to an international organisation, you as the data subject have the right to be informed about the appropriate guarantees (pursuant to Art. 46 EU-GDPR) in connection with the transmission.

Right to rectification

You have the right to request that we correct and, if necessary, complete your personal data.

Right to erasure

You have the right to request that we delete personal data concerning you immediately if one of the following reasons applies: The personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed. You revoke your consent on which the processing was based in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (a) or Art. 9 (2) (a) EU-GDPR, and there is no other legal basis for the processing. You object to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 (1) EU-GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or you object to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 (2) EU-GDPR. The personal data was processed unlawfully. The deletion of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the member states to which we are subject. The personal data was collected in relation to information society services offered directly to a child in accordance with Art. 8 (1) EU-GDPR. Upon your request, we are obliged to delete the relevant data immediately. The legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent up to the point of revocation remains unaffected.

Right to restriction of processing

In certain cases, you can request that the processing of your personal data be restricted. You are entitled to request a restriction on the processing of your personal data if you dispute the correctness of the personal data, for the duration that enables the responsible controller to check the correctness of the personal data. If the processing is unlawful and you decline to delete the personal data and instead request us to restrict the use of the personal data, we will follow the request. The processing will also be restricted if we no longer need your personal data for the purposes of processing, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend your own legal claims, or if you have objected to processing in accordance with Art. 21 (1) EU-GDPR, as long as it has not yet been determined whether the legitimate reasons of the responsible controller outweigh your reasons. You will be informed by us before the restriction is lifted.

Right to data portability

A request by you for information on your data can also be transmitted to third parties.
You have the right to receive the personal data relating to you that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format, and you have the right to have this data transferred to another responsible controller without hindrance by us, to whom the personal data was provided. The prerequisite is that a) the processing is based on consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (a) EU-GDPR or Art. 9 (2) (a) EU-GDPR or on a contract in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (b) EU-GDPR, and b) the processing is carried out using automated procedures. When exercising the right to data portability, you have the right to request that the personal data be transmitted directly from us to another responsible controller, insofar as this is technically feasible.

Right of revocation of consent

If the processing is based on your consent, you have the right to revoke your consent at any time. This does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent up to the point of revocation.

Right to lodge a complaint

You are free to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.

The supervisory authority responsible for our company is: Schleswig-Holstein, Independent State Centre for Data Protection Schleswig-Holstein. The Schleswig-Holstein Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information:

Marit Hansen, Postfach 71 16, 24171 Kiel or: Holstenstraße 98, 24103 Kiel, Telefone: 04 31/988-12 00,
Telefax: 04 31/988-12 23, E-Mail:,

If you are of the opinion that the processing of your personal data violates the EU-GDPR, you can lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. In particular, you can also contact the supervisory authority of your habitual residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged violation. Further regulations on the complaint procedure can be found in Art. 77 EU-GDPR.

Google Adwords Conversion Tracking

In order to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimising our website for you, we also use Google Conversion Tracking. Google Adwords sets a cookie on your computer if you have accessed our website via a Google advertisement.

These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of the Adwords customer’s website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognise that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page.

Each Adwords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the websites of Adwords customers. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The Adwords customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users.

If you do not wish to participate in the tracking procedure, you can also refuse the setting of a cookie required for this – for example, by means of a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies. You can also deactivate cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser so that cookies from the domain „“ are blocked. Google’s privacy policy on conversion tracking can be found here (
