Server log files
You can use our websites without submitting personal data.
Every time our website is accessed, user data is transferred to us or our web hosts/IT service providers by your internet browser and stored in server log files. This stored data includes for example the name of the site called up, date and time of the request, the IP address, amount of data transferred and the provider making the request.
The processing is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1) f) GDPR due to our legitimate interests in ensuring the smooth operation of our website as well as improving our services.

2. Application Forms

Collection and use of personal data in the application process as a franchisee
It is important to dean&david to ensure the highest possible level of protection of your personal information. All personal data that is collected and processed by us within the framework of an application is protected against unauthorized access and manipulation by technical and organizational measures.
Your data will be collected as part of your application as a franchise partner at the dean&david Franchise GmbH. By entering your data, you consent to the use of your data in all companies affiliated with the company.

In addition, you consent to the evaluation of your data by an external service provider, who supports us with the expansion for the location and object search. As part of this evaluation, your application may be automatically rejected on the basis of certain criteria. If this happens, we will inform you and give you the opportunity to comment.

By submitting your data, you further agree that we will save the applications for a period of 2 years in order to take them into account as prospective franchisees. You may revoke this consent at any time with future effect and without stating reasons, by notifying us (chef-werden@deananddavid.com) of your revocation. In case of a cancellation we will delete your personal data immediately.
