The data processing takes place on the basis of art. 6 para. 1 lit. f of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)GDPR respectively § 15 para. 3 of the German Telemedia Act (“Telemediengesetz, TMG”).

usage data

When you visit our web pages, our web server automatically stores usage data, which enables us to recognize which content is of interest to you and which is less interesting. It is not possible for us to identify you or your company via the usage data. The data is used exclusively to analyze the view of the web pages and it is used to protect us from irregular requests.

Below are the type of data that are automatically saved during your visit:

  • the internet domain and the IP address from which you access the website
  • the type of internet browser and operating system of the computer you use to access the site
  • date of use and duration of use
  • which pages you have visited
  • if you have been redirected to our website from another website, the address of that site
  • if you were redirected to our website by a search engine, the address of the corresponding website and the search term you used



The "XING Share Button" is used on our website. When you visit our website, your browser establishes a short-term connection to servers of XING SE ("XING"), which are used to perform the "XING Share Button" functions (in particular the calculation/display of the counter value). XING does not store any of your personal data when you access our website. In particular, XING does not store IP addresses. There is also no evaluation of your usage behavior through the use of cookies in connection with the "XING Share Button". The latest data protection information on the "XING Share Button" and additional information can be found here.


Adobe Dynamic Tag Manager/ Adobe Analytics (omniture)

Our website uses Adobe Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Adobe Systems Software Ireland Limited ("Adobe"). Adobe Analytics was installed on our website using the Adobe Dynamic Tag Manager. Adobe Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. If the information generated by the cookie about your use of the website is transmitted to an Adobe server, the settings ensure that the IP address is anonymized before geolocation and replaced by a generic IP address before being saved. On behalf of the operator of this website, Adobe will use this information to evaluate the use of the website by users, to compile reports on website activities and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with website and internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Adobe Analytics is not merged with other data from Adobe. You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your browser software settings accordingly. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Adobe and the processing of this data by Adobe by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link:


Google Analytics 

This website uses the service "Google Analytics", which is offered by Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, to analyse the use of the website by users. The service uses cookies which are stored on your end device. The information collected by the cookies is usually also sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

On this website IP-anonymisation is used. The IP address of users is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area. Due to this shortening, the personal reference of your IP address is no longer necessary. Within the framework of the agreement on commissioned data, which the website operators have concluded with Google Inc., the latter uses the information collected to create an evaluation of website use and website activity and provides services associated with internet use.

You have the option of preventing the cookie from being stored on your device by making appropriate settings in your browser. If your browser does not allow cookies, there is no guarantee that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions.

Furthermore, you can use a browser plugin to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to Google Inc. and used by Google Inc. The following link will take you to the appropriate plugin:

Google reCaptcha

We use the Google service reCaptcha to determine whether a person or a computer makes a certain entry in our contact form. Google checks whether you are a human being or a computer by means of the following data which is transmitted to Google: IP address of the end device used, the website you visit on our site and on which the captcha is embedded, the date and duration of your visit, identification data of the type of browser and operating system used, Google account if you are logged in to Google, mouse movements on the reCaptcha areas and tasks that require you to identify images. The legal basis for the described data processing is art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. f of the GDPR. There is a legitimate interest on our part in this data processing, to ensure the security of our website and to protect us from automated entries (attacks). We have no influence on any further use of the transmitted data by Google. You can find further information about Google Captcha at


ONLINE application

We process your personal data in accordance with the applicable data protection regulations based on § 26 of the Federal Data Protection Law. We process the data that you provide us with in your online application exclusively for the purpose of selecting applicants. Data processing for other purposes will not take place.

You yourself determine the scope of the data you wish to transfer to us in the context of your online application. Online applications are transferred electronically to our Human Ressources department and processed there as quickly as possible. The transmission is encrypted. As a rule, applications are forwarded to the heads of the relevant departments in our company. If necessary, we also pass on your data to affiliated companies (in some cases also outside the EU) and/or service providers who support us, e.g. in the areas of IT or archiving and destruction, and with whom separate contracts have been concluded for order processing. Beyond this, your data will not be passed on. Your data will be treated confidentially in our company.

If your application is unsuccessful, your documents will be deleted after 6 months and in individual cases it can come to a longer storage of individual data (e.g. travel expense accounting). The duration of the storage then depends on the legal storage obligations, e.g. from the German Tax Code (6 years) or the German Commercial Code (10 years).

In the event that we may also consider your application for other or future job advertisements, please make a corresponding note on your application. We will then process your data on the basis of consent in accordance with art. 6 Para. 1 letter a DSGVO. You can revoke this consent at any time.


If you choose to provide us with personal information, we will use this information only for the purpose for which it was collected and only within the Bureau Veritas Group.

We will not disclose any personal information to third parties outside the Bureau Veritas Group unless you have consented to this disclosure and the disclosure is necessary for the best possible processing of your orders or for the preparation of an appropriate quotation.



The Internet pages use so-called cookies in several places. They serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on the user's computer and saved by the user's browser. Cookies do not cause any damage and do not contain viruses. You can switch off the use of cookies in your browser while our website can still be used. Here you will find our cookie declaration.



If you send a question or comment by e-mail to Bureau Veritas and provide us with your name, e-mail or postal address, we will only use your information to respond to your question or comment or to send you information about services in which you have previously expressed an interest.

If you have given your consent, we will use your data to answer your questions or process your comments and to send you information about the services of our website in those areas in which you have expressly expressed your interest.

Under no circumstances will we forward your name, e-mail address or postal address to an external private organisation, whether commercial or otherwise, unless this is necessary to fulfil the purpose of the transmission (e.g. in the context of an appropriate offer).



You have the possibility to contact us via a web form. To be able to process your request, we need your e-mail address and, if you want to be called, the telephone number. We use the contact data exclusively to answer your inquiry and not for advertising purposes. We then process your data on the basis of art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b of GDPR. Your data will be processed to answer your inquiry and deleted after a period of 12 months. It will be passed on to other companies of the Bureau Veritas Group if this is necessary to process your enquiry. Beyond this, no further transmission will take place.



On our website we offer you the possibility to download whitepapers. In order for us to send you the PDF whitepapers by e-mail, we need your e-mail address. We use the e-mail address exclusively to send you the PDF white paper. We will then process your data on the basis of art. 6 para. 1 lit. b of GDPR.



On our website we offer you the possibility to order our newsletter. Your e-mail address will only be used to send you the newsletter. We then process your data on the basis of art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a of GDPR. I can revoke my consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. You can unsubscribe by clicking on the unsubscribe link in every e-mail.



This website takes extensive precautions to ensure data security of user data: If you as a user transmit personal data to us via the internet, your data is protected both online and offline. All your user data is only accessible to selected groups of people within our company. Only employees who work directly with the data are granted access to personal data. In addition, all employees are regularly trained with regard to our security and data protection regulations.

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee a 100% secure data transfer via the Internet. Accordingly, despite our best efforts to protect your personal information, Bureau Veritas cannot guarantee a secure transmission of data transmitted to us or sent through our online services. The transmission of data is at your own risk. However, we make every effort to ensure the security of your data during its transfer into our system.



If we make changes to our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our website so that our users are always aware of what information we collect and how we use it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify our users by e-mail. Users have a choice as to how their data is used by us. We will use the data in accordance with the conditions set out in our privacy policy at the time of data collection.



When processing your personal data, the GDPR grants you as a website user certain rights:

1.) Right of access by the data subject(art. 15 GDPR):

You have the right to obtain confirmation as to whether or not personal data relating to you are being processed; if this is the case, you have the right to be informed of this personal data and to receive the information specified in art. 15 GDPR. Your request for access to personal data can be made directly through our Personal Data Protection Portal at the following link:

2.) Right of rectification and right to erasure (art. 16 and 17 GDPR):

You have the right to request without delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning you and, if necessary, the completion of incomplete personal data.

You also have the right to request the erasure of personal data relating to you be deleted without undue delay if one of the reasons listed in art. 17 of GDPR applies, for example if the data is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was collected.

3.) Right to restriction of processing (art. 18 GDPR):

You have the right to demand the restriction of processing if one of the conditions listed in art. 18 of GDPR applies, e.g. if you have lodged an objection to processing, for the duration of any examination.  

4.) Right to data portability (art. 20 GDPR):

In certain cases, which are listed in detail in art. 20 of GDPR, you have the right to receive the personal data concerning you in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request that this data will be transmitted to another data controller. 

5.) Right to object (art. 21 GDPR):

If data are collected on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. F of GDPR (data processing to safeguard legitimate interests), you have the right to object to the processing at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. We will then no longer process the personal data, unless there are demonstrably compelling reasons for processing that are worthy of protection and outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert.



According to art. 77 of GDPR, you have the right to appeal to a supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of data concerning you is in breach of data protection regulations. In particular, the right of appeal may be lodged with a supervisory authority in the Member State in which you are resident, your place of work or the place of the suspected infringement.
