Who is responsible for collecting data on this website?
All processing of data on this website is carried out by the website operator. You can find the website operator’s contact details on the Legal Notice page of this website.
How do we collect your data?
Some data are collected when you share information with us, for example when you enter your details in a contact form.
Other data are collected automatically by our IT system when you visit our website. This primarily involves technical data (e.g. which internet browser you use, your operating system, and the time at which you visited our website). This data is captured automatically as soon as you enter our website.
What do we use your data for?
We use some of the data that we collect in order to ensure that the website we provide is free of technical faults. Other data may be used to analyse your consumer behaviour.
What rights do you have over your data?
You have the right to be informed, at any time and free of charge, of how your personal data are obtained, who receives them, and of the purpose for which they are stored. You also have the right to request your personal data to be corrected, blocked or deleted. To request this, or for any other question relating to privacy, you can contact us at any time via the address provided on the Legal Notice page. You also have the right to make a complaint to the competent regulatory authority.
When you visit our website, your browsing behaviour may be statistically analysed. This is primarily done using cookies and analysis programmes. In general, your anonymity is maintained during the analysis of your browsing behaviour; data on your browsing behaviour cannot be used to trace you as an individual.
Please be aware that transmitting data via the internet (e.g. by email) is always subject to possible security breaches. It is not possible to provide absolute protection against your data being accessed by third parties.
The data controller responsible for processing data on this website is:
93444 Bad Kötzting
Tel: +49 (0)9941
The data controller is the natural person or legal entity that, either alone or with others, decides on the purpose for which personal data (names, email addresses, etc.) are processed, and how this is to be done.
Our company has a designated data protection officer.
93444 Bad Kötzting
Tel: +49 (0)9941 94540
Many of the data processing steps are only possible with your express consent. You may withdraw the consent that you previously gave at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal email. This is without prejudice to the legitimacy of the data processing that took place up until the time you withdrew your consent.
If your personal data are processed for the purposes of direct marketing, you have the right, at any time, to object to your personal data being used for this type of marketing; this also applies for profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If you raise an objection, your personal data will no longer be used for the purposes of direct marketing (right to object pursuant to Art. 21(2) GDPR).
In the event of breaches of the GDPR, the persons concerned have the right to lodge a complaint with a regulatory authority; in particular with the competent authority of the EU state in which the affected data subjects are usually resident, in which their workplace is located, or in which the alleged breach took place. The right to lodge a complaint remains unaffected by any other judicial remedies or administrative law procedures.
You have the right to receive data that we have processed based on your consent, or that we have processed automatically in order to perform a contract, in a commonly used and machine-readable format. If you request your data to be transferred directly to another data controller, this will only be done to the extent that it is technically possible.
For security reasons and to safeguard the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the operator of the website, this website uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can tell when a link is encrypted because the prefix in the browser address bar changes from “http://” to “https://” and a padlock symbol appears next to it.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be accessed by third parties.
Within the framework of the applicable legislation, you have the right, at any time and free of charge, to be informed about your stored personal data, how it was obtained and who the recipients are, and the purpose for which this information is processed; you may also have the right to request this data to be corrected, blocked or deleted. To request this, or for any other question relating to your personal data, you can contact us any time via the address provided on the Legal Notice page.
You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted. To do this, you can contact us any time via the address provided on the Legal Notice page. The right to restriction of processing applies in the following cases:
● If you question the accuracy of the personal data we have saved, we generally need time to check this. You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted during the time it takes us to perform this check.
● If your personal data has been or is being processed unlawfully, instead of requesting its deletion, you have the right to request restriction of processing.
● If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it in order to exercise, defend or establish legal claims, you have the right to request that, instead of the data being deleted, processing of your personal data is restricted.
● If you have lodged an objection pursuant to Art. 21(1) GDPR, we are obliged to weigh up the merits of your interests against our own. You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted until it has been decided whose interests will take precedence.
If the processing of your personal data has been restricted at your request, this data – from the time it is first saved – can only be processed either with your consent, for the purposes of establishing, exercising or defending legal claims, in order to protect the rights of another natural person or legal entity, or for important reasons of public interest within the European Union or one of its Member States.
We hereby object to the contact details that we have published in compliance with the Legal Notice requirement being used for the purpose of sending advertising and informational material that have not expressly been solicited. The operators of this website expressly reserve the right to take legal steps in the case of unsolicited transmission of advertising information such as spam email.
Most of the cookies we use are the type known as “session cookies”. These are deleted automatically as soon as you leave our website. Other cookies remain saved on the end device until you delete them yourself. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser next time you visit our website.
You can adjust your browser settings so that you are always notified of cookies and can choose to allow them only in individual cases, accept them in particular cases, generally refuse to accept cookies, or have them automatically deleted when you close your browser. If you deactivate cookies, this will restrict the functionality of this website.
The website provider collects and automatically saves information in files known as server log files, which your browser transfers to us automatically. This information consists of:
● Browser type and version
● The operating system used
● The referrer URL
● The host name of the computer accessing the website
● The time of the server request
● Your IP address
This information is not combined with data from other sources.
This data is captured pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a justified interest in optimising this website and ensuring that it is presented without technical faults – and the capture of log server files is necessary for this purpose.
If you send us enquiries through the contact form, the information that you enter in the contact form will be saved by us, including any contact details that you provide for the purposes of processing your enquiry or in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass this information on to any third parties without your consent.
Accordingly, the processing of data entered in the contact form takes places exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR). You may withdraw this consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal email. This is without prejudice to the legitimacy of the data processing that took place up until the time you withdrew your consent.
The data that you enter in the contact form is kept by us until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for it to be saved, or the purpose for which it was stored has ceased to exist (e.g. your enquiry has been fully processed). This is without prejudice to mandatory legal provisions – in particular those regarding retention periods.
If you contact us by email, phone or fax, we will save and process your enquiry, including all of the personal data associated with it (e.g. your name and request) for the purposes of responding to your concerns. We will not pass this information on to any third parties without your consent.
The processing of this data takes place based on Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR, to the extent that your enquiry relates to the performance of a contract or is required in order to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing of data is based on your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR) and/or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR), as we have a legitimate interest in the efficient processing of the enquiries we receive.
The data that you send to us in the form of contact requests is kept by us until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for it to be saved, or the purpose for which it was stored has ceased to exist (e.g. your enquiry has been fully processed). This is without prejudice to mandatory legal provisions – in particular those regarding statutory retention periods.
If you would like to subscribe to the newsletter offered through the website, we need your email address, as well as information that enables us to check that you are the owner of the specified email address and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Any other data is only collected on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively to send information that has been requested. We do not disclose this data to third parties.
Accordingly, the processing of data entered in the newsletter subscription form takes place exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR). You can, at any time, revoke your consent to data such as your email address being saved and used to send the newsletter by clicking on the “Unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. This is without prejudice to the legitimacy of the data processing that took place up until the time you withdrew your consent.
The data stored by us for newsletter subscription purposes will be saved until such a time as you unsubscribe from the newsletter, and will be deleted on cancellation of your subscription. This does not affect data saved by us for other purposes.
For the purposes of font uniformity, this website uses Web Fonts provided by Google. The Google Fonts are installed locally, without any connection to Google servers.
We offer you the possibility of sending us a job application (e.g. by email, by post or via the online application form). In the following paragraphs we inform you of how we use the personal data collected by us in the context of this application process, and the scope and purpose of this use. We guarantee that your data is collected, processed and used in accordance with applicable data protection laws as well as any other legal provisions, and that your data is treated as strictly confidential.
Scope and purpose of the data collection
If you send us a job application, we process the personal data associated with it (e.g. contact details, application documents, notes made in the context of job interviews, etc.) to the extent that this is necessary in order to make or justify an appointment decision. The legal basis for this consists of Section 26 of the new German Federal Data Protection Act [BDSG-neu], Art. 6(6)(b) GDPR (general initiation of contracts) and – provided that you have given your consent – section 1(1)(a) GDPR. You can revoke this consent at any time. Your personal data will only be transmitted to those people within our company who are involved in processing your application.
If your application is successful, the data you have sent us will be saved in our data processing system, on the basis of section 26 BDSG-neu and Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR, for the purposes of engaging in the employment relationship.
Data retention period
If we are not able to offer you a job, or if you decline our job offer or withdraw your application, revoke your consent to the processing of your data or request us to delete the data, the data you have provided to us, including where applicable any remaining physical application documents, will be kept for a maximum of 6 months after the end of the application process in order to be able to review the details of the application process in the event of discrepancies (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR).
YOU CAN OBJECT TO YOUR INFORMATION BEING SAVED IN THIS MANNER PROVIDED THAT YOU HAVE A JUSTIFIED INTEREST WHICH OVERRIDES OUR INTERESTS.
After the retention period has expired, the data will be deleted as long as there is no further retention obligation or any other legal grounds for continued storage. If it is apparent that there will be a need to continue storing your data after the expiry of the retention period (e.g. due to a threatened or pending legal dispute), the data will only be deleted once the grounds for its storage have ceased to exist. This is without prejudice to any other statutory retention obligations.
