Welcome to our website. We take the protection of your data very seriously. We have therefore outlined how we process your personal data below.
Data categories; data sources
We fundamentally process the personal data that you share with us in the context of an enquiry, a pre-contractual legal relationship or a contractual relationship.
General processing of visitor data
It is generally possible to use our website without providing any personal data.
However, please note that even in this case, access data is collected and stored in the server log files. The following data is stored in particular:
• Browser type/your browser version,
• Operating system,
• The website from which you accessed our site,
• Date and time of your visit,
• Your IP address.
We analyse this information solely in anonymised form in order to defend against attacks and to improve our website (processing of personal data in the context of a weighing of interests in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) of the General Data Protection Regulation [GDPR]) and then delete the information. We are not able to trace the data back to you and this data is not combined with other data.
If there are specific indications of unlawful use, however, we reserve the right to subsequently analyse the data.
When you contact us via email or using a form provided for this purpose, we process the personal data that you provide in order to respond to your enquiry. We erase the data once your enquiry has been processed, provided that there is no contractual or statutory retention obligation.
Processing of personal data based on consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR)
We will obtain consent from you for specific purposes explicitly defined in connection with the data collection in individual cases (e.g. enquiry via a contact form, subscription to a newsletter, use of third party and analytics cookies and external plug-ins).
Data processing is carried out only to the extent that you have provided us with consent. It may not be possible to process your enquiry without your consent, in which case said processing will have to be made dependent on your consent. Data is processed exclusively for the explicitly specified purpose(s).
You may withdraw your consent at any time with future effect. The withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing undertaken up to the time of withdrawal.
If you send us an enquiry via our contact form, we will process the data you provide on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR in order to process your enquiry. Your data will generally be erased once the enquiry has been processed unless there is a contractual or statutory retention obligation or there is a legitimate interest in retaining the data. Where you provide us with contractually relevant information, we will transfer this to our legacy system.
You may withdraw your consent in relation to all specified contact details at any time with future effect.
If you have subscribed to our newsletter, we will process the data you provide on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR in order to send you our newsletter on a regular basis. Only an email address needs to be provided in order to subscribe. Any further information is provided voluntarily.
You may withdraw your consent at any time with future effect. A link to withdraw your consent is provided at the end of each newsletter email. You may, of course, also withdraw your consent using the other contact methods available.
Processing of personal data for the purpose of performing a contract (Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR)
If a contract is concluded with us, we will use personal data to the extent that this is required in order to perform the contract and/or undertake pre-contractual measures. The purposes of data processing are based on the specific content of the contract, which is defined in the contract documents.
Processing of applicant data
We have commissioned HRSC Human Resource Service and Consulting GmbH, Am Grenzgraben 11, 55545 Bad Kreuznach with the management of our open positions and the resulting applications. This is carried out within the scope of an agreement on commissioned processing that ensures the protection of your data through the implementation of technical and organisational measures, among other things. Detailed information on data protection and the application process undertaken by HRSC GmbH is available at https://www.scc-gmbh.de/hrsc-gmbh-privacy-policy-for-the-application-process
Processing of personal data in the context of a weighing of interests (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR)
We process personal data in accordance with a weighing of interests where this is required in order to protect our interests or the interests of a third party.
Examples of such purposes include:
• Safeguarding the IT security and integrity of our systems,
• Preventing or investigating criminal acts,
• Establishing or defending legal claims.
During your visit to our website, cookies may be used on various pages. These are text files that are placed on your computer and, among other things, enable your visit to our website to go smoothly.
• Enabling the use of certain functions,
• (Pseudonymised) analysis of usage behaviour in order to optimise our website,
• Improving the attractiveness and user-friendliness of our website,
• Improving our website and ensuring that it is designed in accordance with requirements.
Cookies are used in the context of usage profiles. A pseudonym is assigned to you in this process, and the usage data is stored under this pseudonym. Your IP address is only stored in truncated form, meaning that it is no longer possible to link the usage profile to you personally.
Most of the cookies that we use are deleted from your computer when you close your browser (session cookies). Other types of cookies may remain on your computer and enable us to recognise your computer using the usage profile created when you next visit our site (persistent cookies).
Cookies are used only by us on our site and not by third parties.
Any data transfer takes place on the basis of a contract on commissioned processing, which ensures compliance with all data protection requirements.
We transfer data to other third parties if and insofar as we have transferred the fulfilment of tasks to these parties. Data is transferred only to the extent that this is required in order to complete the assigned tasks.
We work with the following companies:
• VMB – Visuelle Medien Brunk GbR, Riegelgrube 7, 55543 Bad Kreuznach (website management).
The data transfer takes place in each case on the basis of a contract on commissioned processing, which ensures compliance with all data protection requirements.
Otherwise, data is transferred solely in cases required by law, for example in the case of a statutory obligation to provide information to law enforcement agencies.
Duration of data retention
We will erase your personal data as soon as it is no longer required in order to fulfil contractual and statutory obligations.
Personal data is retained at a minimum for the length of time required to fulfil contractual obligations and to assert any contractual rights. This period may extend beyond the actual term of the contract because the data may still be relevant after the contract has ended in the context of limitation periods. Furthermore, data may only be erased once any retention periods under tax and commercial law have expired.
The criteria for the duration of the storage of cookies are explained in the relevant section.
Rights of data subjects
As a person affected by the processing of personal data, you have the following rights:
You have the right to request confirmation regarding whether personal data is processed. Where this is the case, you have the right to access to the personal data and the right to the information specified in Art. 15 GDPR.
You have the right to obtain from the controller, without undue delay, the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning you and, where necessary, the completion of any incomplete personal data (Art. 16 GDPR).
You have the right to obtain from the controller, without undue delay, the erasure of personal data concerning you, insofar as one of the grounds listed in Art. 17 GDPR applies, e.g. if the data is no longer required for the pursued purposes (right to erasure).
You have the right to obtain from the controller the restriction of processing if one of the conditions specified in Art. 18 GDPR applies, e.g. if you have objected to the processing for the duration of the review by the controller.
You have the right, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to object to the processing of personal data concerning you at any time. The controller shall then no longer process the personal data unless the controller demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims (Art. 21 GDPR).
With regard to the assertion of your rights, you can contact us at any time via the contact methods provided on our website. The fastest way to reach us is via the following method:
Right to object in the case of direct advertising
In individual cases, we will process personal data for the purposes of direct advertising. In this case, you have the right to object to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purposes of such advertising at any time (Art. 21 GDPR).
If you object to processing for direct advertising purposes, the personal data will no longer be processed for such purposes.
Right of complaint
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes the GDPR (Art. 77 GDPR). You may assert this right with a supervisory authority in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement. In Rhineland-Palatinate, the responsible supervisory authority is the State Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information of Rhineland-Palatinate.
