The website operator or page provider collects data about accesses to the page and stores these as “server log files”. The following data is logged in this way:
- Visited website
- Time at the time of access
- Amount of data sent in bytes
- Source/reference from which you reached the page
- Browser used
- Operating system used
- IP address used
With the help of this information, no conclusions are drawn about the site visitors concerned. It is only used for statistical evaluation and improvement of the website. However, the website operator reserves the right to subsequently check the “server log files” if there are concrete indications of illegal use.
Handling of personal data
The website operator is only permitted to collect, use and pass on personal data if this complies with the law or if the person concerned consents to the collection of the data.
Personal data is defined as all information that serves to identify a person as well as to trace him or her, such as the name, e-mail address or telephone number.
Handling of contact details
If you contact the website operator using the contact options provided (contact form or e-mail), your details will be saved so that they can be used to process and respond to your enquiry. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.
Data subjects’ rights of access, rectification and erasure
You have the following rights vis-à-vis MSR with regard to personal data concerning you:
- Right of access (Art. 15 GDPR)
The data subject shall have the right to obtain from the controller
confirmation as to whether personal data concerning him or her are being processed.
- Right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR)
The data subject shall have the right to obtain from the controller
to rectify without delay any inaccurate personal data concerning him or her.
- Right to erasure “right to be forgotten” (Art. 17 GDPR).
The data subject has the right to request that the controller
erase personal data concerning him or her without undue delay, and the controller is obliged to erase personal data without undue delay, provided that one of the grounds referred to in Art. 17 GDPR applies.
- Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR).
The data subject has the right to request from the controller the
restriction of processing, provided that one of the grounds referred to in Article 18 of the GDPR applies.
- Right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR)
The data subject has, among other things, the right to
personal data concerning him or her that he or she has provided to a controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.
- Right to object (Art. 21 GDPR)
The data subject has the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f).
- Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling (Art. 22 GDPR)
The data subject shall have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly significantly affects him or her.
- Right to withdraw consent (Art. 7 GDPR)
The data subject has the right to withdraw consent at any time. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the withdrawal. The data subject shall be informed of this before giving consent. 4The withdrawal of consent shall be as simple as the giving of consent.
Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR serves as the basis when consent to process personal data is obtained from the respective individuals. On the other hand, Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR is the legal basis when personal data must be processed in order to comply with a contract and one of the parties to the contract is the data subject. The processing of personal data is legitimised for website operators or third parties by the fact that their legitimate interest can only be maintained and carried out as a result. However, the legitimate interest must take precedence over the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject. This legitimation is anchored in Article 6 para. 1 f) DSGVO.
Data protection for applications
The personal data of applicants are collected and processed by the responsible person. This is done exclusively to ensure the processing of the application procedure. The information is also processed electronically. This happens, among other things, when the applicant sends the application documents electronically to the person responsible at MSR.
For the purpose of processing the employment relationship, the data shall be stored in compliance with the statutory provisions, provided that the applicant concludes an employment contract. If this is not the case, the application documents will be automatically deleted no later than two months after the conclusion of the procedure (date of rejection by MSR to the applicant or vice versa), provided that this does not conflict with any legitimate interests.
On our website you will find links to the social media services Linkedin, XING and youtube, which can be recognised by the respective company logo. If you follow these links, you will reach MSR’s corporate presence on the respective social media service. Clicking on the logo creates a connection to the respective social media service. In addition to your visit to the website, further information is transmitted to the social media service. This includes the IP address, information on the web browser and operating system used, the website on which the clicked link is located as well as the date and time.
If you are logged into one of the social media services at the moment of activating the link, the social media service can assign the listed information to your user account.
The MSR Consulting Group has no influence on the manner and scope of data processing by the provider of the social media service.

Google Analytics 4
If you have given your consent, this website uses Google Analytics 4, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC. The controller for users in the EU/EEA and Switzerland is Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”).
Nature and purpose of the processing
We use the User ID function. User ID allows us to assign a unique, persistent ID to one or more sessions (and the activities within those sessions) and to analyse user behaviour across devices.
We use Google Signals. This allows Google Analytics to collect additional information about users who have personalised ads enabled (interests and demographics) and ads can be delivered to these users in cross-device remarketing campaigns.
Google Analytics 4 has IP anonymisation enabled by default. Due to IP anonymisation, your IP address will be shortened by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. According to Google, the IP address transferred by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
During your website visit, your user behaviour is recorded in the form of “events”. Events can be:
- Page views
- First visit to the website
- Start of session
- Web pages visited
- Your “click path”, interaction with the website
- Scrolls (whenever a user scrolls to the bottom of the page (90%))
- Clicks on external links
- Internal search queries
- Interaction with videos
- File downloads
- Seen Ads / clicked Ads
- Your approximate location (region)
- Date and time of your visit
- Your IP address (in shortened form)
- Technical information about your browser and the end devices you use (e.g. language setting, screen resolution)
- your internet service provider
- the referrer URL (via which website/advertising medium you came to this website)
Purposes of the data processing
On behalf of the operator Google will use this information to evaluate your [pseudonymous [NOT USING USER ID]] use of the website and to compile reports on website activity. The reports provided by Google Analytics 4 serve to analyse the performance of our website [OPTIONAL: and the success of our marketing campaigns].
Recipients of the data are/may be
- Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (as processor under Art. 28 DSGVO).
- Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA
- Alphabet Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA
Third country transfer
For the USA, the European Commission adopted a news adequacy decision on 10 July 2023. Google LLC is certified under the EU-US Privacy Framework. Since Google servers are distributed worldwide and a transfer to third countries (for example to Singapore) cannot be completely ruled out, we have also concluded the EU standard contractual clauses with the provider to establish an appropriate level of data protection in those countries.
The data sent by us and linked to cookies are automatically deleted after 2 [OR: 14 months]. The maximum lifespan of Google Analytics cookies is 2 years. The deletion of data whose retention period has been reached occurs automatically once a month.
The legal basis for this data processing is your consent pursuant to Art.6 para.1 p.1 lit.a GDPR and § 25 para. 1 p.1 TTDSG.
You can withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future by accessing the cookie settings [SET THE LINK TO COOKIE SETTINGS HERE] and changing your selection there. The lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation remains unaffected.
You can also prevent the storage of cookies from the outset by setting your browser software accordingly. However, if you configure your browser to reject all cookies, this may result in a restriction of functionalities on this and other websites. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google, and the processing of this data by Google, by
