Data Protection

Herold Fahrzeugvermietung AG is the operator of the website ( and responsible for the offers of Hertz Career. It is therefore also responsible for the collection, processing and use of your personal data, which is directly related to the processing of your application / inquiry / website use.

The legal provisions of the Federal Act on Data Protection (FADP), the Ordinance to the Federal Act on Data Protection (OFADP), the Telecommunications Act (TCA) and other provisions of data protection law are observed.

In the following, Herold Fahrzeugvermietung AG informs which personal data is collected, processed and for which purpose it is used.

Scope and purpose of the collection, processing and use of personal data
The website can be visited without providing personal information. Only access data without personal reference such as the name of the Internet service provider, the page from which the visit takes place or the name of the requested file is stored. These data are evaluated exclusively for the improvement of the offer and do not allow any conclusion about the person.

Personal data is only collected if it is provided as part of an application or contact.

The communicated data will be used without separate consent exclusively for answering and processing your application / inquiry.

The data will only be passed on to third parties if this is directly necessary for the handling and processing of the application / inquiry and the evaluation.

Once the application/enquiry has been fully processed, your data will be stored for further use and deleted after the legal retention periods have expired, unless you have actively consented to the further use of your data, or if they must continue to be used within the framework of an employment agreement.



Internet technologies (e.g. cookies, Java-Script) serve exclusively to facilitate the operation of the Internet applications. For this purpose this website uses Google Analytics and Google DoubleClick cookies (floodlights).

Google Analytics (web analysis service) and Google DoubleClick cookies are used to evaluate the use of this website. For this purpose, reports on website activities are compiled in order to optimise the Internet offering accordingly.

The collected data is only evaluated for statistical purposes and in anonymous form. In Google Analytics this is done by shortening the IP address. Google will not associate your shortened IP address with other Google data under any circumstances. DoubleClick cookies contain no personal data. Occasionally, the cookie contains an additional, anonymised identifier to identify a campaign with which a user has previously come into contact. This ensures that no conclusions can be drawn about the web behaviour of a specific person.
