Information about your Rights

This page informs you about your rights. The last article (“Rights reserved by StepStone”) explains the rights that we reserve.

  1. Fundamental Features of the Personalized User Space
    The Personalized User Space is a free of charge service for your job search. For details of the data protection aspects please refer to our Privacy Statement.
  2. How is the contract for the use of the Personalized User Space concluded?
    A contract between you and StepStone is concluded in the following way: You enter your login data on our CV creation site or on our general registration site. Then you accept the declaration of consent on the CV creation or registration site. Then you check that all your data entries are correct and click on “Save”. Now, we have entered into a contract for using the Personalized User Space that can be cancelled at any time by one of the parties. You are now a registered user and can enter your data into the CV database or start using other StepStone services.
  3. Is the wording accessible and stored at StepStone after concluding the contract and can I access it?
    Your contract with StepStone consists of the following elements:

    • Declaration of Consent on the “CV creation” or “registration” site
    • Terms of Use
    • StepStone Privacy Statement

    You can view, store or print all elements at any time by pressing ctrl-s and/or ctrl-p. We will also store these documents. If we make changes, we will post the old versions still on our site via a link.

  4. How much does the Personalized User Space cost?
    The services for job seekers found at the Personalized User Space are free of charge.
  5. Your right of cancellation
    You can deactivate or delete your CV at any time (if you decide to only deactivate your CV it will not be accessible to potential employers, but you can use it, e.g. to attach it to online applications) or partially disable it (make it anonymous, ie to ensure that your personal user data are not visible to those in charge of recruitment). If you need help in doing so – please contact us!
  6. How can I identify errors and correct them before sending my registration?
    If you forget to complete one of the boxes during the registration process, we will not be able to carry out the service for you. Therefore you will be automatically informed if you have not filled in all required fields. You will also be notified if you have entered two different passwords instead of repeating one password, or if the password your have entered is too short. The same applies to your email address or if you have entered it without the @ or if it does not have a logical structure. If you have entered a wrong email address, you will see this as you will not receive our automated electronic confirmation of your registration (email). Furthermore, we will notify you if the user name you have chosen is too short or has already been chosen by another user.
  7. Which languages does StepStone provide?
    On we offer German and English language-versions. StepStone is international. On our site you will find more information about the whole group. The website is offered in English and German.
  8. Rights reserved by StepStone
    StepStone does not guarantee or warrant that the services are available at certain times. Disturbances, interruptions or a possible breakdown of the online service cannot be excluded by StepStone. Systematic backups of the servers are carried out regularly. In so far as data have been transferred to StepStone – regardless their form – we recommend that you create your own backup copies. StepStone shall not be liable for any loss of data. StepStone reserves the right to change, extend, limit or withdraw its services at any time. The user has no right to claim publication.
