Paragon’s Point helps you find your next employment easier and quicker. On our website you have the opportunity to apply to an advertised position, or get invited by employers to apply for positions, which they find fitting for you.

8.1 Registration

To fully use our services as an applicant, you need to register on our platforms. Registration takes place in a so-called double opt-in procedure. I.e. After registration you will receive an email asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with someone else’s email address. The registrations are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process in accordance with the legal requirements. This includes the storage of your personal data (title, first name, surname), your email address, the encrypted password, the time of registration and confirmation, as well as the IP address. The legal basis is Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR.

You can delete your registration at any time in the account settings. All data in your profile will be permanently deleted and your account will be permanently deactivated, unless otherwise described for individual services or otherwise required by law.

Until you unsubscribe, the data relevant to the contract for the use of Mail Alerts and the proof of your consent will be stored: the time of registration and confirmation, your configured selection, email address, name and, in the case of printed forms, a scan of the form.


The purpose of the Mail Alerts and the data collected for it is to send you job offers that match your profile to your email address and to send our newsletter.

YouTube

Our website uses plugins from YouTube, which is operated by Google. The operator of the pages is YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. If you visit one of our pages featuring a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. Here the YouTube server is informed about which of our pages you have visited. If you’re logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube allows you to associate your browsing behavior directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account. YouTube is used to help make our website appealing. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. Further information about handling user data, can be found in the data protection declaration of YouTube under https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

Google Web Fonts

For uniform representation of fonts, this page uses web fonts provided by Google. When you open a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly. For this purpose, your browser has to establish a direct connection to Google servers. Google thus becomes aware that our web page was accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web fonts is done in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our plugin. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer. Further information about handling user data, can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s privacy policy at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.
