After registration

Certain functions of the website require registration for the purpose of creating a profile. There are basically two types of user groups:

  • New employees using the service for the purpose of the relocation process (Internationals)
  • Company employees who can hire Internationals and track their relocation process through the service (company users)

The following information is mandatory for registration as a company user:

  • Name;
  • Email-address.

The following information is mandatory for registration as an international:

  • Name;
  • Email-address;
  • Place of birth;
  • Gender;
  • Family status;
  • Years of professional experience;
  • Mother language;
  • Salary group.

In addition, the collection of further data is necessary for the fulfilment of the contract and is requested during use as a registered international. This includes, in particular, data on vocational training and the intended employment relationship between the company and the international, which is necessary for support in obtaining a German work permit.

In both cases, this information is collected in order to

  • find out who our contractual partner is;
  • enable the contractual relationship to be established, structured, executed and amended;
  • ensure necessary communication with you in connection with contractual or non-contractual matters;
  • exclude or identify registrations that violate our General Terms and Conditions of Use or our General Terms and Conditions of Business (e.g. registrations of minors or multiple registrations);
  • provide you with a selection of relevant information that matches your profile.

If you use our portal, we store your data necessary for the fulfilment of the contract until you finally delete your access. Furthermore, we store the voluntary data provided by you for the duration of your use of the portal, unless you delete it beforehand. You can manage and change all data in the protected customer area.

If you use the portal, your data may become accessible to all persons necessary for the fulfilment of the contract according to the contractual service. In principle, registered users and companies can access all information provided by you on your profile via the website.
