Data collection on this website

Who is responsible for the data collection on this website? The data processing on this website is carried out by the website operator. Your contact details can be found in the imprint of this website.

How do we collect your data?

On the one hand, your data is collected by providing us with it. This can be, for example, data that you enter in a contact form or, for example, by e-mail, telephone, letter, etc. Other data is automatically collected by our IT systems when we visit the website. This is mainly technical data (e.g. Internet browser, operating system or time of page view). This data is collected automatically as soon as you enter this website.

What do we use your data for?

Some of the data is collected to ensure that the website is provided without errors. Other data may be used to analyze your user behavior. Data is also collected to process your request and in case of follow-up questions.

What rights do you have with respect to your data?

You have the right to receive information about the origin, recipient, and purpose of your stored personal data, free of charge at any time. You also have the right to request the rectification or deletion of this data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint for further questions on data protection. You shall also have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. You also have the right to request, in certain circumstances, the restriction of the processing of your personal data. For details, see the Privacy Policy under “Right to Restrict Processing.”

Storage

The data provided by you such as name, address, telephone number, e-mail address as well as information on your request are necessary for answering your request, for carrying out non-binding or pre-contractual measures (e.g. preparation of quotations and transmission) and, if necessary, for later fulfilment of the contract. Without this information, we will not be able to provide you with the information you require or conclude the contract with you.

This data will not be passed on to third parties without your explicit consent, with the exception of the transmission to our trusted service providers for the performance of the contract of necessary information, such as:

  • to our tax advisor to meet our tax obligations
  • to contracted transport companies/shipping companies for delivery
  • to our IT service provider for e.g. necessary backup measures of our data (backups)
  • processors required for the performance of the contract, etc.

All service providers mentioned here are also subject to the GDPR.

If no contract is concluded, the data stored by us will be deleted after 6 months. In the event of a contract being concluded, all data from the contractual relationship will be stored until the expiry of the statutory retention periods (e.g. warranty, product liability, tax retention period, etc.).

Third-party analytics and tools

When you visit our website, your browsing behavior can be statistically evaluated. This is mainly done with cookies and with so-called analysis programs. The analysis of your surfing behavior is usually done anonymously; the surf behavior cannot be traced back to you. You can object to this analysis or prevent it by not using certain tools. Detailed information about these tools and your options for objecting can be found in the following privacy policy.

  • If the processing of your personal data has been/happens unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.
  • If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
  • If you have filed an objection under Article 21(1) GDPR, a balance must be made between your interests and our interests. If it is not yet clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.

7. Own services

Dealing with applicant data

We offer you the opportunity to apply to us (e.g. by e-mail or by post). In the following, we inform you about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected during the application process. We assure that the collection, processing and use of your data is carried out in accordance with applicable data protection law and all other legal provisions and that your data will be treated strictly confidentially.

Scope and purpose of data collection

When you send us an application, we process your personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes in the course of interviews, etc.) insofar as this is necessary for the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship.

In principle, the applicant’s personal data should not include the following information:

  • Health data (e.g. diseases, pregnancy, etc.)
  • Ethnic and/or racial origin
  • Political opinion
  • Religious and/or ideological beliefs
  • Trade union affiliation
  • Details about sex life or sexual orientation

Should you nevertheless voluntarily provide us with sensitive data, you expressly consent to the processing of this data for the purpose of our application and recruiting.

We and external service providers commissioned by us process your personal data in compliance with the provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation, national data protection laws and other relevant national laws. In particular, data processing is used to carry out the application management process in order to start an employment relationship. The primary legal basis for this is Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR (general initiation of contracts) and, if you have given your consent, Art. a GDPR. The consent can be revoked at any time. Your personal data will only be passed on within our company to persons involved in the processing of your application. If the application is successful, the data submitted by you will be stored in our data processing systems for the purpose of carrying out the employment relationship.

Retention period of the data

If we cannot offer you a job offer, reject a job offer or withdraw your application, we reserve the right to keep the data you provide on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f GDPR) for up to 6 months from the end of the application process (rejection or withdrawal of the application). The data is then deleted and the physical application documents are destroyed. The retention is used in particular for verification purposes in the event of a dispute. If it is apparent that the data will be necessary after the expiry of the 6-month period (e.g. due to an impending or pending litigation), deletion will only take place if the purpose for further storage is no longer necessary.

A longer retention can also take place if you have given appropriate consent (Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a GDPR) or if legal retention obligations prevent deletion.

Admission to the applicant pool

If we do not offer you a job offer, you may be able to add you to our applicant pool. In case of admission, all documents and information from the application will be transferred to the applicant pool to contact you in case of suitable vacancies.

Admission to the applicant pool is based solely on your express consent (Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a GDPR). The submission of consent is voluntary and is unrelated to the ongoing application process. The person concerned can withdraw his consent at any time. In this case, the data from the applicant pool will be permanently deleted, unless there are legal reasons for retention. The data from the applicant pool will be irrevocably deleted no later than two years after the consent has been given.

8. General

We reserve the right to change this privacy policy at any time with effect for the future, the current version is available on our website.

Status: Feb 2020

Should individually provisions of this declaration be ineffective or unenforceable or become ineffective or unenforceable after publication, the validity of the statement remains unaffected. The invalid or unenforceable provision shall be replaced by the effective and enforceable provision whose effects come closest to the economic objective pursued by the author with the invalid or unenforceable provision. The above provisions shall apply accordingly if the declaration proves to be incomplete.
