Thank you for your interest in Fresenius. The protection of your personal data during the entire application process is important to us and we want you to feel secure when visiting our website. Below we would like to explain which data we collect via our website https://afterwork.fresenius.com and what happens with this data. However, our websites may contain links to websites which are not covered by this data protection notice.
The processing of personal data is subject to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and the Telecommunications Telemedia Data Protection Act (TTDSG). This data protecstion notice informs you about which and how your personal data and information in your terminal equipment (e.g. laptop or smartphone) is processed during the use of the websites and during the application process.
By "personal data" we mean all information that identifies you or makes you identifiable.
By “processing” we mean any operation which is performed on personal data, such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
With this data protection information, we explain to you in detail:
In accordance with the GDPR, the data controller responsible for the use of your personal data is Fresenius SE & Co. KGaA, Else-Kröner-Straße 1, 61352 Bad Homburg vor der Höhe, Germany, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org

We collect information about your visit to our website, as we do with most other websites. When you visit our website, the web server temporarily records
Your IP address is only recorded anonymously - shortened by the last block of numbers (octet). The logging of data is necessary for navigation through the pages and use of essential functions (§ 25 II No. 2 TTDSG, Art. 6 I b) GDPR). In addition, the data is used for the purpose of detecting and tracking abuse on the basis of the legitimate interests of data security and the functionality of the service (Art. 6 I f) GDPR, § 25 II No. 2 TTDSG). In particular, no overriding interest of the data subject is opposed to a use for the defense against attempted attacks on our web server to ensure proper use. The data will neither be used for the creation of individual profiles nor passed on to third parties and will be deleted after seven days at the latest.
If you apply, the personal data you provide in your application will be processed for the purpose of processing your application and carrying out the respective application and filling procedure for the event.
Personal data may include especially, without limitation the following information:
The application data is processed on the basis of statutory provisions which permit data processing because it is necessary for the decision on the participation in the event (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR).
In the event that we reject your application, we will delete your personal data three (3) months after the end of the event. In the event that we accept your application, we will also delete your personal data — whether or not you are actually attending the event — three (3) months after the end of the event, unless you have registered in our Fresenius Alumni retention program (see 2.2.3) before then. If this is the case, the separate data protection information provided there during the registration shall apply.
2.2.2 Successful Application
In the event that you are invited to participate in the event, we will also process the data mentioned in section 2.2.1 in order to enable your invitation and participation in the event. This includes, for example, sending an invitation, creating a list of participants and the general organization of the event.
The data is processed on the basis of legal provisions which permit data processing because it is necessary for the purpose of participation in the event (Art. 6 para 1 lit. b GDPR).
The Fresenius Digital After Work event will be held solely virtually as a Microsoft Team video conference. By the use of Microsoft Teams we process image and sound data during the video conference and we store any chats and shared files, as well as technical metadata. This data processing is carried out to enable you to participate in the video conference and to allow you to access the information shared during the videoconference, as well as for abuse detection and tracking purposes.
The data is processed on the basis of statutory provisions which permit data processing because it is necessary for the provision of the event to the user (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR), or because we have a legitimate interest in ensuring the security and operability of the service and its proper use, without this being contrary to any overriding interest of the persons concerned (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR).
Your data will be deleted twelve (12) months after the end of the event, unless you have registered in our Fresenius Alumni loyalty program (see 2.2.3) in the meantime. Should this be the case, the separate data protection information provided there during registration will apply.
2.2.3 E-Mail for the registration at Alumni
