Privacy policy


Thank you for visiting our website. Thank you for your interest in our company and our services. Data protection and data security are very important to us when using our website. In the following privacy policy we inform you about which personal data we collect on our website and for what purpose they are used.

When processing personal data (e.g. name, address, telephone number, e-mail address) we always adhere to the basic data protection regulation including the country-specific data protection regulations that apply to us. We have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most comprehensive possible protection of personal data. Please note that Internet-based data transmissions can have security gaps and therefore no absolute protection can be guaranteed. Of course, you can also provide us with personal data (e.g. as part of an application) by alternative means (e-mail, telephone, etc.).

If no special services of the website (e.g. contact form) are used, the basic use of our website is also possible without providing personal data.


The person responsible within the meaning of the GDPR, other data protection laws applicable in the European Union and other data protection regulations is:

Lise-Meitner-Allee 11
44801 Bochum / Germany
Phone: +49 234 92 04 – 0

Questions about data protection
Please send us an e-mail datenschutzno spam@zpp.de or contact us directly.



The security of your data is important to us. We use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL, TLS). You can recognize an encrypted connection by the green lock symbol and the "https://" in the browser address line. If SSL encryption is activated, data sent to us (e.g. via a contact form) cannot be read by third parties.


The user has the possibility to revoke his consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the user contacts us by e-mail, contact form or application form, he can object to the storage of his personal data at any time. The revocation of consent shall not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation. An informal e-mail message to us is sufficient for the revocation. All personal data stored in the course of contacting us will be deleted in this case.


Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority. The responsible supervisory authority is the data protection officer of the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia, in which our company is based.


You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the person responsible in a structured, common and machine-readable format. Furthermore, you have the right to transmit this data to another responsible person without obstruction by the responsible person to whom the personal data was provided, insofar as it is technically feasible with the help of automated procedures and the processing is based on a consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR or on a contract according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR.


You have the right to obtain information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipients and the purpose of data processing at any time within the scope of the applicable legal provisions.

You have a right to rectification and/or completion if the personal data processed concerning you is incorrect or incomplete. The correction shall be made immediately.

You may request that the personal data concerning you be deleted. We will delete this data immediately upon request.


The Privacy Policy may be amended from time to time to reflect changes in the business process and legal aspects. The new data protection declaration will then apply for your next visit.

Privacy policy status: 25.05.2018

Duration for which the personal data is stored

The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the person responsible is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

We record

The data collected is used solely for statistical evaluations and to improve the website. However, the website operator reserves the right to subsequently check the server log files if there are concrete indications of illegal use. A combination of this data with other data sources and an evaluation for marketing purposes is not carried out.

storage time
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Further storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

If no employment contract is concluded with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted after two months at the latest after notification of the rejection decision, provided that deletion does not conflict with any other legitimate interests, e.g. the duty of proof within the framework of the German General Equal Treatment Act (AGG - Allgemeinen Gleichbehandlungsgesetz).

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an e-mail address from you. We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to ensure that newsletters are sent out in agreement. In the course of this, the potential recipient can be included in a distribution list. Subsequently, the user receives the opportunity to confirm the registration in a legally secure manner by means of a confirmation e-mail. The address is only actively included in the distribution list if it is confirmed. We use your e-mail address exclusively for sending the ZPP newsletter. You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the "Unsubscribe" link in the newsletter.

ZPP INGENIEURE AG uses Sendinblue to send newsletters. The provider is Sendinblue GmbH, Köpenicker Straße 126, 10179 Berlin, Germany.

Sendinblue is a service with which among other things the dispatch of newsletters can be organized and analyzed. Through the analysis we can see, for example, whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links have been clicked on. If you do not wish this to be analysed, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide an appropriate link in every newsletter message. You can also unsubscribe from the newsletter directly on the website.

The data you enter for the purpose of newsletter subscription will be stored on Sendinblue's servers in Germany. Sendinblue is prohibited from selling your data and using it for purposes other than sending newsletters. Sendinblue is a German, certified provider selected in accordance with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation and the German Federal Data Protection Act. 

We have concluded a contract with Sendinblue in which we oblige Sendinblue to protect our customers' data and not to pass it on to third parties. 

legal basis
The data will be processed 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 processes already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
