Provision of the website and log files

Each time our website is accessed, data and information are collected by an automated system. These are stored in the so-called log files. These are files in which processes running in a computer or network system are logged.

The processing of this information serves to protect against or trace hacker and cyber attacks, to ensure the functionality of our information technology systems, and to ensure and improve the functionality of the websites. The data of the log files are always stored separately from other personal data of the users.

This processing is carried out based on the legitimate interest (pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) in the proper and secure operation of the website, also in your interest. We take your legitimate interest into account through measures for anonymisation and pseudonymisation wherever possible.

Essentially, the following data is collected during the operation of our website:

  • IP address
  • domain name of the website from which you came
  • websites that you have visited in our offer
  • names of accessed files
  • date and time of access
  • name of your internet service provider
  • if applicable, operating system and browser version of your device
  • language

The personal data will be deleted or anonymized after 30 days at the latest, unless we are legally obliged to retain them, or the storage is permitted on the basis of a legal justification.

About cookies and scripts

We use different technologies to operate the website securely and to enable you to visit the website comfortably.

On the one hand, when you visit our website, data is stored or read out in so-called "cookies" as well as in the local memory of your browser (hereinafter collectively referred to as "cookies") on your device.

Our websites (as well as any e-mails sent) may also contain small, transparent image files called "pixels" to record how you interact with the websites.

Finally, dynamic lines of code ("scripts") can also be used on our website, and content such as e.g., Maps or videos from other providers can be embedded.

When you visit our website, a so-called "cookie banner" gives you the opportunity to decide according to your wishes about the use of cookies and other technologies in the area of our offer. You have the possibility at any time to change the decision made there and to subsequently give or revoke your consent.

Please note that technically necessary, so-called "essential" technologies must be activated, and cookies set in order to maintain the stability, security and functionality of our website.

You can configure your browser settings according to your wishes and, for example, deactivate the setting of cookies or the execution of scripts. We would like to point out that if you refuse, you may not be able to use all functions of the website or that it may not be possible to display it at all.

Further information on the specific use of the technologies can be found in the following paragraphs. You can also give consent there or revoke your consent.

If you give your consent, this includes the possible storage of information on your device and access to information in your device (according to § 25 para. 1 German Data Protection and Privacy in Telecommunications and Telemedia Act, “TDDDG”) as well as the respective data processing (according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR).


Our offer is generally not aimed at children. In any case, we will not knowingly collect personal data from children or use it in any way or disclose it to third parties without authorization. Something else applies if any trainee positions are advertised that are (also) aimed at minors.

Data recipients, service providers, data transfer to third countries

E.ON SE transmits data from web analysis to the E.ON Group companies specified in the respective job advertisement for the purpose of measuring performance.

For these purposes, the E.ON Group companies also have services performed by carefully selected and commissioned service providers (such as IT service providers). Commissioned service providers are contractually obliged to comply with data protection and security requirements. As part of the provision of services, service providers or subcontractors based in a third country also process personal data. The transfer to third countries takes place in compliance with the data protection requirements of the EU and national law, for example on the basis of an adequacy decision or suitable guarantees (e.g. EU Standard Contractual Clauses). You may request further information and obtain copies of guarantees at any time.

Other data recipients may be public bodies (e.g., police, public prosecutor's office, tax authorities, supervisory authorities) in justified cases, or other commissioned third parties (e.g., lawyers, auditors) in the context of their commission.

In addition, you can object to the processing of your personal data for reasons arising from your situation, in particular for purposes of advertising, market or opinion research.
