1. Which data do we process?

Interested parties and customers:
The personal data is processed which is required for the execution and processing of our business activities and which you have voluntarily provided to us. This includes for example your master data, contact and address data, correspondence data and bank data.

Your application data is collected and processed by us electronically for the purpose of processing the application procedure. If an employment contract is concluded following your applications, then the data you have transmitted can be stored by us in your personal file for the purpose of the usual organisation and administration process, taking into account the pertinent legal regulations. The deletion of the data you have transmitted shall take place automatically on rejection of your job application two months after announcement of the rejection. This shall not apply if, due to legal requirements (for example the burden of proof in accordance with the General Law on Equal Treatment), a longer period of retention is necessary or if you have consented to longer storage of the data in our interested party database.

Users of the website:
The use of our website is generally possible without stating your personal data. If personal data is collected on our pages (for example the name, address or email addresses), then this shall take place if possible on a voluntary basis.
We process the data announced by you voluntarily and through active entry (e.g. during requests via e-mail or in our contact form, within the scope of competitions, on registering for our download area or within the scope of offers etc.) This data includes your master, contact, correspondence, access or applicant data.
In addition, we process data which is automatically collected from you (servers, logfiles). This includes the Internet protocol used to connect your computer with the Internet (“IP” address, date and time of the request, which file is requested, which data quantity is to be transmitted to you, a message as to whether the request was successful, identification data on the browser used and the operating system used and the website from which the access took place). However, this information only serves to determine the attractiveness of our website, to improve its contents continuously and to make them even more interesting for you. None of this data is merged with personal data.

2. For which purposes do we process data, and on which legal bases does this processing rest?

1. We process personal data from interested parties and customers based on a contract of which you are a contracting party or within the scope of pre-contractual measures taking place in response to your request. The purpose of this processing is the provision of services within the scope of our business activities as well as for interested party and customer administration.

2. Due to your consent, we process your data – if necessary – for the use of cookies and web analysis tools (see below, Points 6 to 10), for the electronic dispatch of information and invitations and, in case you contact us, for the processing of and responses to requests.

3. Due to our authorised interests or the authorised interests of third parties, we process your data for the purpose of the operation, security and optimisation of the website, in order to prevent fraud, for the assertion, exercising and defence of legal claims, for responses to your requests, for the provision of performance verifications and for the purposes of direct marketing regarding your own services and events.

4. Furthermore, data is processed for the fulfilment of legal obligations or official commissions to which we as persons responsible are subject.

3. Which consequences arise if we do not process your data?

It is neither contractually nor legally stipulated that you have to provide your data. However, without your data we cannot fulfil the purposes for which we legally process your data (see above) or cannot fulfil these to their full extent.

4. How long is your data processed for?

We store your personal data only as long as required for the purposes for which you have processed it (basic principle of storage limitations).
After achieving the respective purpose, an inspection is made to see whether the data is still required or if there is any legal retention period preventing the deletion or anonymisation of the data. If this is the case, data is processed for the duration of the retention period. Apart from this, data can also be required and processed for the defence and assertion of legal claims within the legal or contractual warranty and damages periods. If the processing of data is based on your consent, we process the data for the duration of its validity.

5. Categories of recipients to whom your data may be forwarded if required

If this is necessary for the stated purposes and an appropriate legal basis exists, then data is forwarded, in the required scope only, to external recipients whilst maintaining the legal provisions.
These recipients include those participating in the business transaction such as recipients, banks, public entities (courts and authorities) and insurances. In addition, data can be forwarded to legal representatives (during the assertion of rights and claims or the defence of claims and within the scope of official procedures), tax advisors and public accountants who are active within the scope of the IT infrastructure (hardware and software) as order processors. Furthermore, it may be that data in connection with the use of the website is forwarded to Internet and social media companies (Google, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, YouTube, Twitter; for details see below in points 7 to 10 ).

Should data be processed outside the European Union, the conditions of the fifth Chapter in the GDPR shall be maintained. Accordingly, data shall only be forwarded if an adequacy decision in terms of Art. 45 GDPR is available or if other suitable warranties exist (conclusion of standard contractual clauses, membership in the Privacy Shield Agreement by the recipient in the USA).
