What we do

Data and information are the oil of the 21st century. Big Data, a raw material that needs to be processed.

Only intelligent processing turns big data into smart data.

In order to shift the focus from quantity to quality, you need highly-specialised, innovative digital tools. With an extraordinary understanding of the complexity of the requirements, technical expertise and creativity, CSI creates a digital world to support management decisions, operates databases and develops platforms for the automation of business processes.

Our platform and tool development is geared exclusively to the requirements of the markets. CSI develops innovative products and makes them available to our customers quickly and in a resource-saving manner.

With the awareness of a management consultancy, we create solutions that digitise, automate and manage relevant data and processes.

Our developers are highly skilled database, back-end and front-end experts.

Common Sense Intelligence stands for digitisation and is the software manufacturer of the Finance Elements Group and its customers.

Database-, Tool- & Platform-Development

Understanding, recognising, solving, remembering and knowledge are the essential processes in the development of intelligence.

Our developers address these processes, challenge themselves every day, and adapt to new perspectives.

Our proprietary platform and intelligent core database genesis.one are at the centre of our business activities. Highly modular, our experts continue to develop and design these partly self-learning systems.

The goal-oriented linking of complex database structures, cloud services, process engines and artificial intelligence is not a version for the future, but part of CSI's everyday added value.

We provide our solutions to our customers, implement them within the Finance Element Group, thus benefitting from the synergies of the group.

While others are still describing the problem, we are already working on the solution.

  • the date and time of your use of the website
  • the name of the requested file
  • the page which is requested from the file
  • access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
  • browser and operating system used

  • the amount of data transferred

We will not use the general data and information gathered to identify an individual. We need to store this data temporarily in order to provide access to our website via your hardware device and to ensure that the website can function properly. We also use this data in order to gain statistical insights into how our websites are used. We also collect the data to track and prevent illegal access to the web server and abuse of our websites and to maintain the security of our IT systems. We store this information temporarily on the basis of justified interest (cf. art. 6 para 1 f GDPR). Our interest is to achieve the purposes detailed above.

Collection of other information

If you contact us by email and provide personal data to us, we will collect, process and use your personal information solely for the purpose of processing your request, (i.e. processing for the execution of pre-contractual and / or contractual measures, which are carried out on request (cf. art. 6 para. 1 b GDPR)).

Deletion and blocking of personal data

The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the European legislator or other legislators in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject. If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislator or another competent legislator expires, the personal data is routinely blocked or erased in accordance with legal requirements.

Data protection in connection with job applications and job application procedures

The controller collects and proceses the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends corresponding application documents to the controller by electronic means, for example by email. If the controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents shall be automatically deleted in accordance with legal deadlines after notification of the rejection decision after notification of the decision of refusal, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller stand in the way of deletion. Other legitimate interests in this sense are, for example, a burden of proof in proceedings under the German General Equal Treatment Act (GETA).

Rights of data subjects

You may revoke any consent given in the processing of your personal data at any time with future effect. Please note that the revocation does not affect the lawfulness of any previous data processing and that it does not cover such data processing, for which there is a legitimate reason and which therefore, may also be carried out without your consent.

Processing restrictions:
Under certain circumstances, you can require restriciton of processing, e.g. if you believe that your data is incorrect, if the processing is illegal or if you have contested processing of the data. This means that your data may be processed only to a very limited extent without your consent, eg for the assertion, exercise and defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of other natural and legal persons, art. 18 GDPR.

Data portability:
You have the right to receive the data that you have provided us and that we process, either with your consent or in order to fulfill the contractual process, in a standard, machine-readable format and to have the information transmitted directly to third parties, where technically feasible cf. art. 20 GDPR.
