fount flexibly optimizes the entire job placement and recruiting process. The modular product architecture adapts flexibly to individual needs. The subject of data protection concerns personal data. These are individual details about personal or factual circumstances of a certain or determinable natural person. This includes, for example, information such as name, postal address, e-mail address or telephone number, but also user data, if applicable. User data is data that is necessary to use our websites, such as information about the beginning, end and extent of the use of our website and registration data. Which data is collected by us and how it is processed or used is described below:Collection and use of your data
Automated data collection
When you access the fount webpage, your Internet browser automatically transmits data for technical purposes. The following data is stored separately from other data that you may transmit to us:
Browser type/ -version
Operating system in use
URL of the previously visited website
Quantity of data sent
This data is stored exclusively for technical reasons and is never assigned to a specific person at any time. We reserve the right to check this data if we become aware of indications of illegal use. Is there an obligation to provide data?
The input of data at fount is voluntary and without obligation. You decide which data you provide within the scope of use. For technical and functional reasons, in some cases it is necessary to provide data in order to use fount. The following paragraphs describe which data must be entered.Which data and for what purpose is your data processed (purpose of processing)
fount as an intuitive user interface takes over the effective job matching: This means that fount users (hereinafter also referred to as "talents"), i.e. those who are looking for jobs, receive job offers from fount clients (e.g. advertising agencies, film production cpmpanies), who are looking for talents for realising jobs.
As far as the consent of the users/talents has been obtained, the user/talent can have future jobs sent to him/her by e-mail or SMS, stating his/her personal data (surname, first name, e-mail address, telephone (optional), place of residence/work, language skills (optional), details of profession).
The data of a user/talent is only passed on to a fount client, i.e. the one who offers jobs, in order to enter the selection pool of potential contractors. Based on the matching process carried out by fount, the user/talent is then informed of a job offer which includes the identity of the client offering the job. The user/talent, if interested in the job offer provided to him/her, has thereupon explicitly consented to the disclosure of his/her data to the client provided to him/her via SMS or e-mail to fount. A revocation of the consent is possible at any time. Voluntary data for users/talents
fount offers you as user/talent the possibility to personalize your profile. For this purpose you can, for example, voluntarily enter your professional background and knowledge, your education details , job references, address, hobbies, gender, date of birth, interests, telephone number and Skype contact. You can also upload a photo of yourself to your profile. This information is voluntary and not mandatory to register. You should therefore choose carefully which information you enter in your profile as this can possibly be shared with other users and especially clients of fount. During the personalization process of your profile you can answer questions. Your answers help us to achieve better job matching results.Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your expressed consent. You can revoke previously given consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal message by e-mail to email@example.com
. The legality of the data processing that took place up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.On what legal basis is the data processed?
We process the aforementioned personal data in accordance with the provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) (new version) as well as other relevant technical laws:
The data processing takes place on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.Is there an automated decision-making process?
The data that we collect is used to analyse certain personal aspects relating to you, in particular your professional knowledge, interests and information about your education. This data is used to decide which specific job offers from fount clients (i.e. job providers) are suitable for you. Automated decision-making processes are also used in some cases. The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.Information disclosure
Generally, your personal data will only be passed on without your expressed prior consent in the following cases:
Your data may be passed on to clients, i.e. companies such as advertising agencies or film production companies, which offer specific jobs. However, the data will only be passed on after you have informed us of your interest in the job offer, i.e. only after you have given your explicit consent.
Insofar as contents or services offered by our clients or other third parties as a function of this website (e.g. chat windows) are identified by their logo and/or name, they are subject to the data protection regulations stated there with reference to the respective responsible body. We do not process any data that is collected within the scope of these contents and services. Deletion of your data
If your data is no longer required for the above-mentioned purposes, it will be deleted: fount enables the user to receive information about new job offers. Personal data will only be deleted if the user does request it, as s/he will continue to be informed about job offers until that time.
To delete your user account, fount offers you the possibility to send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
asking for the deletion of your personal data. In this case your profile will be completely and permanently deleted. If data must be stored for legal reasons, it’s processing will be restricted and thus blocked until the final deletion. The data is then no longer available for further use.Right of access and rectification and the right to limit processing
You have the right to request information about the data we have stored about you. You also have the right to request a correction of incorrect data, to restrict processing and to have data deleted. For this purpose, please contact email@example.com
or by post to the address given above. Right of appeal to the responsible supervisory authority
In the event of violations of the data protection law, the person concerned has the right to appeal to the relevant supervisory authority. The relevant supervisory authority in matters of data protection law is the State Data Protection Commissioner of the federal state in which our company is based, Berlin. A list of the data protection officers and their contact details can be found under the following link: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html. Right to data transferability
You have the right to have the data allocated to you , which has been proceeded automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of data to another responsible party, this will only be done as far as technically feasible.

You may revoke this consent at any time by sending us an informal notification via e-mail to email@example.com
. The legality of the data processing operations carried out up to the point of revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

. Intercom as communication medium
. If you wish to object the storage and transmission of data via Intercom, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Mandrill for sending transactional e-mails (not newsletter)
. The use of Mandrill is essential for communicating with our users.
Mandrill is certified under the US-EU Data Protection Agreement "Privacy Shield" and is thus committed to comply with EU data protection regulations. Newsletter
In the following paragraph we will inform you about the contents of our newsletter and the associated registration, dispatch and statistical evaluation procedure as well as your rights of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter, you consent to receive information by fount and to the use of your data as described below.
fount offers you a free newsletter service. The newsletter informs you about new functionalities, new advertising campaigns, developments and new members of the fount team. It will also ask you to participate in surveys to make you aware of new products or services or to send you other information which might be of interest to you. Furthermore, we may inform you in the newsletter about offers and products of our cooperation partners.
For the registration to our newsletter we rely on the so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that you will receive an e-mail after registering on our website in which you are asked to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with a third party e-mail address.
The newsletter registrations are stored in order to be able to prove the registration process according to legal requirements. This includes the storage of the registration and confirmation time as well as the IP address. Changes to your data stored with Mailchimp are also logged. Mailchimp for sending newsletters
The newsletters are sent via "Mailchimp", a newsletter dispatch platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC (675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA).
The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients as well as other data described in this notice, are stored on the servers of Mailchimp in the USA. Mailchimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore, Mailchimp may use this data in order to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. for technical optimization of sending and presenting newsletters for economic purposes to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, Mailchimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients in order to directly contact them or pass on such data to third parties.
Mailchimp is certified under the US-EU data protection agreement "Privacy Shield" and therefore commits itself to comply with the EU data protection regulations.Statistical survey and analyses
The newsletters contain a so-called "web-beacon", i.e. a pixel-sized file which is retrieved from the server of Mailchimp when the newsletter is opened. In the context of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about your browser and your system as well as your IP address and time of retrieval, are collected. This information is used for the technical improvement of the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behaviour based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined by the IP address) or the access times.
Statistical surveys also track whether newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our nor Mailchimp's intention to track individual users. Instead, the evaluations serve to trace the reading habits of our users and to adapt our contents to them or to send different contents according to the interests of our users. Online access and data management
You can unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time. Each newsletter contains information on how to do so with effect for the future.
Your consent to receive the newsletter via Mailchimp and the statistical analyses will expire at the same time. A separate cancellation of the dispatch via Mailchimp or the statistical analysis is unfortunately not possible.Legal general data protection regulation
In accordance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in force from 25 May 2018, we hereby inform you that consent to the sending of e-mail addresses is given on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a, 7 GDPR and Art. 7 para. 2 No. 3, or para. 3 UWG. The use of the mail service provider Mailchimp, the execution of the statistical surveys and analyses as well as the logging of the registration procedure are based on our legitimate interests according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. We are interested in employing a user-friendly and secure newsletter system, which serves our business interests and meets the expectations of our users. If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Further data will not be collected. We use these data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass them on to third parties.

Each Google AdWords client receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked through the websites of AdWords clients. The information collected through the conversion cookie is used to compile conversion statistics for AdWords clients who have opted in to conversion tracking. Clients are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page 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 tracking, you can opt-out of this use by disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie from your web browser under User Preferences.
