Right to de­mand pro­ces­sing restric­tions

You have the right to de­mand the im­po­si­ti­on of restric­tions as far as the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal da­ta is con­cer­ned. To do so, you may con­ta­ct us at any time at the ad­dress pro­vi­ded in sec­tion “In­for­ma­ti­on Re­qui­red by Law.” The right to de­mand restric­tion of pro­ces­sing ap­p­lies in the fol­lowing ca­ses:

  • In the event that you should dis­pu­te the cor­rect­ness of your da­ta ar­chi­ved by us, we will usual­ly need so­me time to ve­ri­fy this claim. Du­ring the time that this in­ves­ti­ga­ti­on is on­go­ing, you have the right to de­mand that we restrict the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal da­ta.
  • If the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal da­ta was/is con­duc­ted in an un­law­ful man­ner, you have the op­ti­on to de­mand the restric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your da­ta in lieu of de­man­ding the era­di­ca­ti­on of this da­ta.
  • If we do not need your per­so­nal da­ta any lon­ger and you need it to ex­er­cise, de­fend or claim le­gal en­ti­t­le­ments, you have the right to de­mand the restric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal da­ta in­s­tead of its era­di­ca­ti­on.

4. Re­cord­ing of da­ta on this web­site

Coo­kies

Our web­sites and pa­ges use what the in­dus­try re­fers to as “coo­kies.” Coo­kies are small text files that do not cau­se any da­ma­ge to your de­vice. They are eit­her stored tem­pora­ri­ly for the du­ra­ti­on of a ses­si­on (ses­si­on coo­kies) or they are per­ma­nent­ly ar­chi­ved on your de­vice (per­ma­nent coo­kies). Ses­si­on coo­kies are au­to­ma­ti­cal­ly de­le­ted on­ce you ter­mi­na­te your vi­sit. Per­ma­nent coo­kies re­main ar­chi­ved on your de­vice un­til you ac­tively de­le­te them or they are au­to­ma­ti­cal­ly era­di­ca­ted by your web brow­ser.

In so­me ca­ses it is pos­si­ble that third par­ty coo­kies are stored on your de­vice on­ce you en­ter our site (third par­ty coo­kies). The­se coo­kies en­ab­le you or us to ta­ke ad­van­ta­ge of cer­tain ser­vices of­fe­red by the third par­ty (e.g. coo­kies for the pro­ces­sing of pay­ment ser­vices).

Coo­kies have a va­rie­ty of func­tions. Ma­ny coo­kies are tech­ni­cal­ly es­sen­ti­al sin­ce cer­tain web­site func­tions would not work in the ab­sence of the coo­kies (e.g. the shop­ping cart func­tion or the dis­play of vi­de­os). The pur­po­se of other coo­kies may be the ana­ly­sis of user pat­terns or the dis­play of pro­mo­tio­nal messages.

Coo­kies, which are re­qui­red for the per­for­mance of elec­tro­nic com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on tran­sac­tions (re­qui­red coo­kies) or for the pro­vi­si­on of cer­tain func­tions you want to use (func­tio­n­al coo­kies, e.g. for the shop­ping cart func­tion) or tho­se that are ne­cessa­ry for the op­ti­miz­a­ti­on of the web­site (e.g. coo­kies that pro­vi­de mea­sura­ble in­sights in­to the web au­di­ence), shall be stored on the ba­sis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR, un­less a dif­fe­rent le­gal ba­sis is ci­ted. The ope­ra­tor of the web­site has a le­gi­ti­ma­te in­te­rest in the sto­rage of coo­kies to en­su­re the tech­ni­cal­ly er­ror free and op­ti­mi­zed pro­vi­si­on of the operator’s ser­vices. If your con­sent to the sto­rage of the coo­kies has be­en re­ques­ted, the re­spec­ti­ve coo­kies are stored ex­clu­si­ve­ly on the ba­sis of the con­sent ob­tai­ned (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR); this con­sent may be re­vo­ked at any time.

You have the op­ti­on to set up your brow­ser in such a man­ner that you will be no­ti­fied any time coo­kies are pla­ced and to per­mit the ac­cep­t­ance of coo­kies on­ly in spe­ci­fic ca­ses. You may al­so ex­clu­de the ac­cep­t­ance of coo­kies in cer­tain ca­ses or in ge­ne­ral or ac­ti­va­te the de­le­te func­tion for the au­to­ma­tic era­di­ca­ti­on of coo­kies when the brow­ser clo­ses. If coo­kies are de­ac­ti­va­ted, the func­tions of this web­site may be li­mi­ted.

In the event that third par­ty coo­kies are used or if coo­kies are used for ana­ly­ti­cal pur­po­ses, we will se­pa­r­ate­ly no­ti­fy you in con­junc­tion with this Da­ta Pro­tec­tion Po­li­cy and, if ap­p­li­ca­ble, ask for your con­sent.

Ser­ver log files

The pro­vi­der of this web­site and its pa­ges au­to­ma­ti­cal­ly collects and stores in­for­ma­ti­on in so-cal­led ser­ver log files, which your brow­ser com­mu­ni­ca­tes to us au­to­ma­ti­cal­ly. The in­for­ma­ti­on com­pri­ses:

  • The ty­pe and ver­si­on of brow­ser used
  • The used ope­ra­ting sys­tem
  • Re­fer­rer URL
  • The host­na­me of the ac­ces­sing com­pu­ter
  • The time of the ser­ver in­qui­ry
  • The IP ad­dress

This da­ta is not mer­ged with other da­ta sources.

This da­ta is re­cor­ded on the ba­sis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The ope­ra­tor of the web­site has a le­gi­ti­ma­te in­te­rest in the tech­ni­cal­ly er­ror free de­pic­tion and the op­ti­miz­a­ti­on of the operator’s web­site. In or­der to achie­ve this, ser­ver log files must be re­cor­ded.

Con­ta­ct form

If you sub­mit in­qui­ries to us via our con­ta­ct form, the in­for­ma­ti­on pro­vi­ded in the con­ta­ct form as well as any con­ta­ct in­for­ma­ti­on pro­vi­ded the­r­ein will be stored by us in or­der to hand­le your in­qui­ry and in the event that we have fur­ther ques­ti­ons. We will not share this in­for­ma­ti­on wi­thout your con­sent.

The pro­ces­sing of the­se da­ta is ba­sed on Art. 6 pa­ra. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your re­quest is re­la­ted to the exe­cu­ti­on of a con­tract or if it is ne­cessa­ry to car­ry out pre-con­trac­tu­al mea­su­res. In all other ca­ses the pro­ces­sing is ba­sed on our le­gi­ti­ma­te in­te­rest in the ef­fec­ti­ve pro­ces­sing of the re­quests ad­dres­sed to us (Art. 6 Pa­ra. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on your agree­ment (Art. 6 Pa­ra. 1 lit. a GDPR) if this has be­en re­ques­ted.

The in­for­ma­ti­on you have en­t­e­red in­to the con­ta­ct form shall re­main with us un­til you ask us to era­di­ca­te the da­ta, re­vo­ke your con­sent to the ar­chi­ving of da­ta or if the pur­po­se for which the in­for­ma­ti­on is being ar­chi­ved no lon­ger exists (e.g. af­ter we have con­clu­ded our re­spon­se to your in­qui­ry). This shall be wi­thout pre­ju­di­ce to any man­da­to­ry le­gal pro­vi­si­ons – in par­ti­cu­lar re­ten­ti­on pe­ri­ods.

Re­quest by e‑mail, te­le­pho­ne or fax

If you con­ta­ct us by e‑mail, te­le­pho­ne or fax, your re­quest, in­clu­ding all re­sul­ting per­so­nal da­ta (na­me, re­quest) will be stored and pro­ces­sed by us for the pur­po­se of pro­ces­sing your re­quest. We do not pass the­se da­ta on wi­thout your con­sent.

The­se da­ta are pro­ces­sed on the ba­sis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR if your in­qui­ry is re­la­ted to the ful­fill­ment of a con­tract or is re­qui­red for the per­for­mance of pre-con­trac­tu­al mea­su­res. In all other ca­ses, the da­ta are pro­ces­sed on the ba­sis of our le­gi­ti­ma­te in­te­rest in the ef­fec­ti­ve hand­ling of in­qui­ries sub­mit­ted to us (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on the ba­sis of your con­sent (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR) if it has be­en ob­tai­ned.

The da­ta sent by you to us via con­ta­ct re­quests re­main with us un­til you re­quest us to de­le­te, re­vo­ke your con­sent to the sto­rage or the pur­po­se for the da­ta sto­rage lap­ses (e.g. af­ter com­ple­ti­on of your re­quest). Man­da­to­ry sta­tu­to­ry pro­vi­si­ons — in par­ti­cu­lar sta­tu­to­ry re­ten­ti­on pe­ri­ods — re­main un­af­fec­ted.

Goog­le Ads and Goog­le Con­ver­si­on Tracking

This web­site uses Goog­le Ads. Goog­le Ads is an on­line pro­mo­tio­nal pro­gram of Goog­le Ire­land Li­mi­ted (“Goog­le”), Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dub­lin 4, Ire­land.

In con­junc­tion with Goog­le Ads, we use a tool cal­led Con­ver­si­on Tracking. If you click on an ad pos­ted by Goog­le, a coo­kie for Con­ver­si­on Tracking pur­po­ses will be pla­ced. Coo­kies are small text files the web brow­ser pla­ces on the user’s com­pu­ter. The­se coo­kies ex­pi­re af­ter 30 days and are not used to per­so­nal­ly iden­ti­fy users. If the user vi­sits cer­tain pa­ges of this web­site and the coo­kie has not yet ex­pi­red, Goog­le and we will be ab­le to re­co­gni­se that the user has cli­cked on an ad and has be­en lin­ked to this pa­ge.

A dif­fe­rent coo­kie is al­lo­ca­ted to every Goog­le Ads cus­to­mer. The­se coo­kies can­not be tra­cked via web­sites of Goog­le Ads cus­to­mers. The in­for­ma­ti­on ob­tai­ned with the as­si­s­tance of the Con­ver­si­on coo­kie is used to ge­ne­ra­te Con­ver­si­on sta­tis­tics for Goog­le Ads cus­to­mers who have op­ted to use Con­ver­si­on Tracking. The users re­cei­ve the to­tal num­ber of users that have cli­cked on their ads and have be­en lin­ked to a pa­ge equip­ped with a Con­ver­si­on Tracking tag. Howe­ver, they do not re­cei­ve any in­for­ma­ti­on that would al­low them to per­so­nal­ly iden­ti­fy the­se users. If you do not want to par­ti­ci­pa­te in tracking, you have the op­ti­on to ob­ject to this use by ea­si­ly de­ac­ti­vat­ing the Goog­le Con­ver­si­on Tracking coo­kie via your web brow­ser un­der user set­tings. If you do this, you will not be in­clu­ded in the Con­ver­si­on Tracking sta­tis­tics.

The sto­rage of “Con­ver­si­on” coo­kies and the use of this tracking tool are ba­sed on Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a le­gi­ti­ma­te in­te­rest in the ana­ly­sis of user pat­terns, in or­der to op­ti­mi­ze the operator’s web of­fe­rings and ad­ver­ti­sing. If a cor­re­spon­ding agree­ment has be­en re­ques­ted (e.g. an agree­ment to the sto­rage of coo­kies), the pro­ces­sing ta­kes place ex­clu­si­ve­ly on the ba­sis of Art. 6 pa­ra. 1 lit. a GDPR; the agree­ment can be re­vo­ked at any time.

Face­book Pi­xel

To mea­su­re con­ver­si­on ra­tes, this web­site uses the vi­si­tor ac­ti­vi­ty pi­xel of Face­book. The pro­vi­der of this ser­vice is Face­book Ire­land Li­mi­ted, 4 Grand Ca­nal Squa­re, Dub­lin 2, Ire­land. Ac­cord­ing to Facebook’s state­ment the collec­ted da­ta will be trans­fer­red to the USA and other third par­ty coun­tries too.

This tool al­lows the tracking of pa­ge vi­si­tors af­ter they have be­en lin­ked to the web­site of the pro­vi­der af­ter cli­cking on a Face­book ad. This makes it pos­si­ble to ana­ly­se the ef­fec­ti­ve­ness of Face­book ads for sta­tis­ti­cal and mar­ket re­se­arch pur­po­ses and to op­ti­mi­ze fu­ture ad­ver­ti­sing cam­pai­gns.

For us as the ope­ra­tors of this web­site, the collec­ted da­ta is an­ony­mous. We are not in a po­si­ti­on to ar­ri­ve at any con­clu­si­ons as to the iden­ti­ty of users. Howe­ver, Face­book ar­chi­ves the in­for­ma­ti­on and pro­ces­ses it, so that it is pos­si­ble to make a con­nec­tion to the re­spec­ti­ve user pro­fi­le and Face­book is in a po­si­ti­on to use the da­ta for its own pro­mo­tio­nal pur­po­ses in com­pli­an­ce with the Face­book Da­ta Usa­ge Po­li­cy. This en­ab­les Face­book to dis­play ads on Face­book pa­ges as well as in lo­ca­ti­ons out­side of Face­book. We as the ope­ra­tor of this web­site have no con­trol over the use of such da­ta.

The use of Face­book Pi­xel is ba­sed on Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The ope­ra­tor of the web­site has a le­gi­ti­ma­te in­te­rest in ef­fec­ti­ve ad­ver­ti­sing cam­pai­gns, which al­so in­clu­de so­cial me­dia. If a cor­re­spon­ding agree­ment has be­en re­ques­ted (e.g. an agree­ment to the sto­rage of coo­kies), the pro­ces­sing ta­kes place ex­clu­si­ve­ly on the ba­sis of Art. 6 pa­ra. 1 lit. a GDPR; the agree­ment can be re­vo­ked at any time.

You­Tube with ex­pan­ded da­ta pro­tec­tion in­te­gra­ti­on

Our web­site em­beds vi­de­os of the web­site You­Tube. The web­site ope­ra­tor is Goog­le Ire­land Li­mi­ted (“Goog­le”), Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dub­lin 4, Ire­land.

We use You­Tube in the ex­pan­ded da­ta pro­tec­tion mo­de. Ac­cord­ing to You­Tube, this mo­de en­su­res that You­Tube does not store any in­for­ma­ti­on about vi­si­tors to this web­site be­fo­re they watch the vi­deo. Ne­vertheless, this does not ne­cessa­ri­ly me­an that the sharing of da­ta with You­Tube part­ners can be ru­led out as a re­sult of the ex­pan­ded da­ta pro­tec­tion mo­de. For in­stance, re­gard­less of whe­ther you are watching a vi­deo, You­Tube will al­ways es­tab­lish a con­nec­tion with the Goog­le Dou­ble­Click net­work.

As so­on as you start to play a You­Tube vi­deo on this web­site, a con­nec­tion to YouTube’s ser­vers will be es­tab­lis­hed.

Job Ap­p­li­ca­ti­ons

We of­fer web­site vi­si­tors the op­por­tu­ni­ty to sub­mit job ap­p­li­ca­ti­ons to us (e.g. via e‑mail, via pos­tal ser­vices on by sub­mit­ting the on­line job ap­p­li­ca­ti­on form). Be­low, we will brief you on the scope, pur­po­se and use of the per­so­nal da­ta collec­ted from you in con­junc­tion with the ap­p­li­ca­ti­on pro­cess. We as­su­re you that the collec­tion, pro­ces­sing and use of your da­ta will oc­cur in com­pli­an­ce with the ap­p­li­ca­ble da­ta pri­va­cy rights and all other sta­tu­to­ry pro­vi­si­ons and that your da­ta will al­ways be trea­ted as strict­ly con­fi­den­ti­al.

Scope and pur­po­se of the collec­tion of da­ta

If you sub­mit a job ap­p­li­ca­ti­on to us, we will pro­cess any af­fi­lia­ted per­so­nal da­ta (e.g. con­ta­ct and com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons da­ta, ap­p­li­ca­ti­on do­cu­ments, no­tes ta­ken du­ring job in­ter­views, etc.), if they are re­qui­red to make a de­cisi­on con­cer­ning the es­tab­lish­ment or an em­ploy­ment re­la­ti­ons­hip. The le­gal grounds for the afo­re­men­tio­ned are § 26 New GDPR ac­cord­ing to Ger­man Law (Nego­tia­ti­on of an Em­ploy­ment Re­la­ti­ons­hip), Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR (Ge­ne­ral Con­tract Nego­tia­ti­ons) and – pro­vi­ded you have gi­ven us your con­sent – Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR. You may re­vo­ke any con­sent gi­ven at any time. Wi­t­hin our com­pa­ny, your per­so­nal da­ta will on­ly be shared with in­di­vi­du­als who are in­vol­ved in the pro­ces­sing of your job ap­p­li­ca­ti­on.

If your job ap­p­li­ca­ti­on should re­sult in your re­cruit­ment, the da­ta you have sub­mit­ted will be ar­chi­ved on the grounds of § 26 New GDPR and Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR for the pur­po­se of im­ple­men­ting the em­ploy­ment re­la­ti­ons­hip in our da­ta pro­ces­sing sys­tem.

Da­ta Ar­chi­ving Pe­ri­od

If we are un­ab­le to make you a job of­fer or you re­ject a job of­fer or wi­th­draw your ap­p­li­ca­ti­on, we re­ser­ve the right to re­tain the da­ta you have sub­mit­ted on the ba­sis of our le­gi­ti­ma­te in­te­rests (Art. 6 pa­ra. 1 lit. f GDPR) for up to 6 mon­ths from the end of the ap­p­li­ca­ti­on pro­ce­du­re (re­jec­tion or wi­th­dra­wal of the ap­p­li­ca­ti­on). Af­ter­wards the da­ta will be de­le­ted, and the phy­si­cal ap­p­li­ca­ti­on do­cu­ments will be de­s­troy­ed. The sto­rage ser­ves in par­ti­cu­lar as evi­dence in the event of a le­gal dis­pu­te. If it is evi­dent that the da­ta will be re­qui­red af­ter the ex­pi­ry of the 6‑month pe­ri­od (e.g. due to an im­pen­ding or pen­ding le­gal dis­pu­te), de­le­ti­on will on­ly ta­ke place when the pur­po­se for fur­ther sto­rage no lon­ger ap­p­lies.

Lon­ger sto­rage may al­so ta­ke place if you have gi­ven your agree­ment (Ar­ti­cle 6 (1) (a) GDPR) or if sta­tu­to­ry da­ta re­ten­ti­on re­qui­re­ments pre­clu­de the de­le­ti­on.

Ad­mis­si­on to the ap­p­li­cant pool

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

Ad­mis­si­on to the ap­p­li­cant pool is ba­sed ex­clu­si­ve­ly on your ex­press agree­ment (Art. 6 pa­ra. 1 lit. a GDPR). The sub­mis­si­on agree­ment is vol­un­ta­ry and has no re­la­ti­on to the on­go­ing ap­p­li­ca­ti­on pro­ce­du­re. The af­fec­ted per­son can re­vo­ke his agree­ment at any time. In this ca­se, the da­ta from the ap­p­li­cant pool will be ir­re­vo­ca­b­ly de­le­ted, pro­vi­ded the­re are no le­gal re­a­sons for sto­rage.

The da­ta from the ap­p­li­cant pool will be ir­re­vo­ca­b­ly de­le­ted no la­ter than two ye­ars af­ter con­sent has be­en gran­ted.
