2. Gene­ral infor­ma­ti­on and man­dato­ry infor­ma­ti­on

Data pro­tec­tion

The ope­ra­tors of this web­site and its pages take the pro­tec­tion of your per­so­nal data very serious­ly. Hence, we handle your per­so­nal data as con­fi­den­ti­al infor­ma­ti­on and in com­pli­an­ce with the sta­tuto­ry data pro­tec­tion regu­la­ti­ons and this Data Pro­tec­tion Decla­ra­ti­on.

Whenever you use this web­site, a varie­ty of per­so­nal infor­ma­ti­on will be collec­ted. Per­so­nal data com­pri­ses data that can be used to per­so­nal­ly iden­ti­fy you. This Data Pro­tec­tion Decla­ra­ti­on exp­lains which data we collect as well as the pur­po­ses we use this data for. It also exp­lains how, and for which pur­po­se the infor­ma­ti­on is collec­ted.

We here­with advise you that the trans­mis­si­on of data via the Inter­net (i.e. through e-mail com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons) may be prone to secu­ri­ty gaps. It is not pos­si­ble to com­ple­te­ly pro­tect data against third party access.

Infor­ma­ti­on about the respon­si­ble party (refer­red to as the “con­trol­ler” in the GDPR)

The data pro­ces­sing con­trol­ler on this web­site is:

G&B Auto­ma­ti­sie­rungs­tech­nik GmbH & Co KG
Rein­hard Götze
Zum Kalk­berg 2b
04910 Els­ter­wer­da

Phone: 03533 2571
E-mail: mail@g-u-b-automatisierung.de

The con­trol­ler is the natu­ral person or legal entity that single-han­ded­ly or joint­ly with others makes decisi­ons as to the pur­po­ses of and resour­ces for the pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data (e.g. names, e-mail addres­ses, etc.).

Revo­ca­ti­on of your con­sent to the pro­ces­sing of data

A wide range of data pro­ces­sing tran­sac­tions are pos­si­ble only sub­ject to your express con­sent. You can also revoke at any time any con­sent you have alrea­dy given us. To do so, all you are requi­red to do is sent us an infor­mal noti­fi­ca­ti­on via e-mail. This shall be wit­hout pre­ju­di­ce to the law­ful­ness of any data collec­tion that occur­red prior to your revo­ca­ti­on.

Right to object to the collec­tion of data in spe­cial cases; right to object to direct adver­ti­sing (Art. 21 GDPR)

In the event that data are pro­ces­sed on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. e or f GDPR, you have the right to at any time object to the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data based on grounds ari­sing from your unique situa­ti­on. This also app­lies to any pro­filing based on these pro­vi­si­ons. To deter­mi­ne the legal basis, on which any pro­ces­sing of data is based, please con­sult this Data Pro­tec­tion Decla­ra­ti­on. If you log an objec­tion, we will no longer pro­cess your affec­ted per­so­nal data, unless we are in a posi­ti­on to pre­sent com­pel­ling pro­tec­tion worthy grounds for the pro­ces­sing of your data, that out­weigh your inte­rests, rights and free­doms or if the pur­po­se of the pro­ces­sing is the clai­ming, exer­cis­ing or defence of legal ent­it­le­ments (objec­tion pur­suant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR).

If your per­so­nal data is being pro­ces­sed in order to engage in direct adver­ti­sing, you have the right to at any time object to the pro­ces­sing of your affec­ted per­so­nal data for the pur­po­ses of such adver­ti­sing. This also app­lies to pro­filing to the extent that it is affi­lia­ted with such direct adver­ti­sing. If you object, your per­so­nal data will sub­se­quent­ly no longer be used for direct adver­ti­sing pur­po­ses (objec­tion pur­suant to Art. 21 Sect. 2 GDPR).

Right to log a com­p­laint with the com­pe­tent super­vi­so­ry agency

In the event of vio­la­ti­ons of the GDPR, data sub­jec­ts are ent­it­led to log a com­p­laint with a super­vi­so­ry agency, in par­ti­cu­lar in the member state where they usual­ly main­tain their domici­le, place of work or at the place where the alle­ged vio­la­ti­on occur­red. The right to log a com­p­laint is in effect regard­less of any other admi­nis­tra­ti­ve or court pro­cee­dings avail­ab­le as legal recour­ses.

Right to data por­ta­bi­li­ty

You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we auto­ma­ti­cal­ly pro­cess on the basis of your con­sent or in order to fulfil a con­tract be handed over to you or a third party in a com­mon­ly used, machi­ne read­a­ble format. If you should demand the direct trans­fer of the data to ano­t­her con­trol­ler, this will be done only if it is tech­ni­cal­ly fea­si­ble.

SSL and/or TLS encryp­ti­on

For secu­ri­ty rea­sons and to pro­tect the trans­mis­si­on of con­fi­den­ti­al con­tent, such as purcha­se orders or inqui­ries you submit to us as the web­site ope­ra­tor, this web­site uses either an SSL or a TLS encryp­ti­on pro­gram­me. You can reco­gnise an encryp­ted con­nec­tion by che­cking whe­ther the address line of the brow­ser swit­ches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearan­ce of the lock icon in the brow­ser line.

If the SSL or TLS encryp­ti­on is activa­ted, data you trans­mit to us cannot be read by third par­ties.

Infor­ma­ti­on about, blo­cka­ge, rec­tifi­ca­ti­on and era­di­ca­ti­on of data

Within the scope of the app­li­ca­ble sta­tuto­ry pro­vi­si­ons, you have the right to at any time demand infor­ma­ti­on about your archi­ved per­so­nal data, their source and reci­pi­ents as well as the pur­po­se of the pro­ces­sing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data rec­tified, blo­cked or era­di­ca­ted. If you have ques­ti­ons about this sub­ject matter or any other ques­ti­ons about per­so­nal data, please do not hesi­ta­te to con­tact us at any time at the address pro­vi­ded in sec­tion “Infor­ma­ti­on Requi­red by Law.”

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.
  • If you have raised an objec­tion pur­suant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be weig­hed against each other. As long as it has not been deter­mi­ned whose inte­rests pre­vail, you have the right to demand a restric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data.

If you have restric­ted the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data, these data – with the excep­ti­on of their archi­ving – may be pro­ces­sed only sub­ject to your con­sent or to claim, exer­ci­se or defend legal ent­it­le­ments or to pro­tect the rights of other natu­ral per­sons or legal ent­i­ties or for important public inte­rest rea­sons cited by the European Union or a member state of the EU.

3. Record­ing of data on our web­site

Coo­kies

In some instan­ces, our web­site and its pages use so-called coo­kies. Coo­kies do not cause any damage to your com­pu­ter and do not con­tain viru­ses. The pur­po­se of coo­kies is to make our web­site more user fri­end­ly, effec­tive and more secure. Coo­kies are small text files that are placed on your com­pu­ter and stored by your brow­ser.

Most of the coo­kies we use are so-called “ses­si­on coo­kies.” They are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted after your leave our site. Other coo­kies will remain archi­ved on your device until you delete them. These coo­kies enable us to reco­gnise your brow­ser the next time you visit our web­site.

You can adjust the set­tings of your brow­ser to make sure that you are noti­fied every time coo­kies are placed and to enable you to accept coo­kies only in spe­ci­fic cases or to exclu­de the accep­tan­ce of coo­kies for spe­ci­fic situa­ti­ons or in gene­ral and to activa­te the auto­ma­tic dele­ti­on of coo­kies when you close your brow­ser. If you deac­tiva­te coo­kies, the func­tions of this web­site may be limi­ted.

Coo­kies that are requi­red for the per­for­mance of the elec­tro­nic com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons tran­sac­tion or to pro­vi­de cer­tain func­tions you want to use (e.g. the shop­ping cart func­tion), are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in sto­ring coo­kies to ensure the tech­ni­cal­ly error free and opti­mi­sed pro­vi­si­on of the operator’s ser­vices. If other coo­kies (e.g. coo­kies for the ana­ly­sis of your brow­sing pat­terns) should be stored, they are addres­sed sepa­r­ate­ly in this Data Pro­tec­tion Decla­ra­ti­on.

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.

Hence, the pro­ces­sing of the data ent­e­red into the con­tact form occurs exclu­si­ve­ly based on your con­sent (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR). You have the right to revoke at any time any con­sent you have alrea­dy given us. To do so, all you are requi­red to do is sent us an infor­mal noti­fi­ca­ti­on via e-mail. This shall be wit­hout pre­ju­di­ce to the law­ful­ness of any data collec­tion that occur­red prior to your revo­ca­ti­on.

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.

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 your con­sent (Arti­cle 6 (1) a GDPR) and/or on our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests (Arti­cle 6 (1) (f) GDPR), since we have a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the effec­tive pro­ces­sing of requests addres­sed to us.

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.

4. Plug-ins and Tools

Google Web Fonts

To ensure that fonts used on this web­site are uni­form, this web­site uses so-called Web Fonts pro­vi­ded by Google. When you access a page on our web­site, your brow­ser will load the requi­red web fonts into your brow­ser cache to cor­rec­t­ly dis­play text and fonts.

To do this, the brow­ser you use will have to estab­lish a con­nec­tion with Google’s ser­vers. As a result, Google will learn that your IP address was used to access our web­site. The use of Google Web Fonts is based on our inte­rest in pre­sen­ting our online con­tent in a uni­form and appe­aling way. Accord­ing to Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR, this is a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest.

If your brow­ser should not sup­port Web Fonts, a stan­dard font instal­led on your com­pu­ter will be used.

For more infor­ma­ti­on on Google Web Fonts, please follow this link: https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and con­sult Google’s Data Pri­va­cy Decla­ra­ti­on under: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

5. Custom Ser­vices

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 should not be able to offer you a posi­ti­on, if you refuse a job offer, retract your app­li­ca­ti­on, revoke your con­sent to the pro­ces­sing of your data or ask us to delete your data, we will store your trans­fer­red data, incl. any phy­si­cal­ly sub­mit­ted app­li­ca­ti­on docu­ments for a maxi­mum of 6 months after the con­clu­si­on of the app­li­ca­ti­on pro­cess (reten­ti­on period) to enable us to track the details of the app­li­ca­ti­on pro­cess in the event of dis­pa­ri­ties (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR).

YOU HAVE THE OPTION TO OBJECT TO THIS STORAGE/RETENTION OF YOUR DATA IF YOU HAVE LEGI­TI­MA­TE INTE­RESTS TO DO SO THAT OUT­WEIGH OUR INTE­RESTS.

Once the reten­ti­on period has expi­red, the data will be dele­ted, unless we are sub­ject to any other sta­tuto­ry reten­ti­on obli­ga­ti­ons or if any other legal grounds exist to con­ti­nue to store the data. If it should be fore­see­ab­le that the reten­ti­on of your data will be necessa­ry after the reten­ti­on period has expi­red (e.g. due to immi­nent or pen­ding liti­ga­ti­on), the data shall not be dele­ted until the data have become irrele­vant. This shall be wit­hout pre­ju­di­ce to any other sta­tuto­ry reten­ti­on peri­ods.
