Some data are collected when you provide it to us. This could, for example, be data you enter on a contact form.

Other data are collected automatically by our IT systems when you visit the website. These data are primarily technical data such as the browser and operating system you are using or when you accessed the page. These data are collected automatically as soon as you enter our website.

2. General information and mandatory information

Data protection

The operators of this website take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data as confidential and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this privacy policy.

If you use this website, various pieces of personal data will be collected. Personal information is any data with which you could be personally identified. This privacy policy explains what information we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this happens.

Please note that data transmitted via the internet (e.g. via email communication) may be subject to security breaches. Complete protection of your data from third-party access is not possible.

Notice concerning the party responsible for this website

The party responsible for processing data on this website is:

centrotherm international AG
Württemberger Straße 31
89143 Blaubeuren
Deutschland

Telephone: +49 7344 918-9900
E-Mail 

The responsible party is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (names, email addresses, etc.).

Revocation of your consent to the processing of your data

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You may revoke your consent at any time with future effect. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

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 file complaints with regulatory authorities

If there has been a breach of data protection legislation, the person affected may file a complaint with the competent regulatory authorities. The competent regulatory authority for matters related to data protection legislation is the data protection officer of the German state in which our company is headquartered. 

The competent supervisory authority in our case is:

Der Landesbeauftragte für den Datenschutz und die Informationsfreiheit
Königstrasse 10 a
70173 Stuttgart
Germany

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data which we process based on your consent or in fulfillment of a contract automatically delivered to yourself or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you require the direct transfer of data to another responsible party, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection in your browser's address line when it changes from "http://" to "https://" and the lock icon is displayed in your browser's address bar.

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

Information, blocking, deletion

As permitted by law, you have the right to be provided at any time with information free of charge about any of your personal data that is stored as well as its origin, the recipient and the purpose for which it has been processed. You also have the right to have this data corrected, blocked or deleted. You can contact us at any time using the address given in our legal notice if you have further questions on the topic of personal data.

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.

Opposition to promotional emails

We hereby expressly prohibit the use of contact data published in the context of website legal notice requirements with regard to sending promotional and informational materials not expressly requested. The website operator reserves the right to take specific legal action if unsolicited advertising material, such as email spam, is received.

4. Data collection 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 website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in "server log files". These are:

     

  • Browser type and browser version
  •  

  • Operating system used
  •  

  • Referrer URL
  •  

  • Host name of the accessing computer
  •  

  • Time of the server request
  •  

  • IP address
  •  

These data will not be combined with data from other sources.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (b) DSGVO, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract.

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.

5. Analytics and advertising

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service. It is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Google Analytics cookies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its website and its advertising.

IP anonymization

We have activated the IP anonymization feature on this website. Your IP address will be shortened by Google within the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services regarding website activity and Internet usage for the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.

Browser plugin

You can prevent these cookies being stored by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. However, we wish to point out that doing so may mean you will not be able to enjoy the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the data generated by cookies about your use of the website (incl. your IP address) from being passed to Google, and the processing of these data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Objecting to the collection of data

You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent your data from being collected on future visits to this site: Disable Google Analytics.

For more information about how Google Analytics handles user data, see Google's privacy policy: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.

Outsourced data processing

We have entered into an agreement with Google for the outsourcing of our data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

Demographic data collection by Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics' demographic features. This allows reports to be generated containing statements about the age, gender, and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. This collected data cannot be attributed to any specific individual person. You can disable this feature at any time by adjusting the ads settings in your Google account or you can forbid the collection of your data by Google Analytics as described in the section "Refusal of data collection".

6. 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.

  • to obtain information and for the exchange of data with credit agencies where this exceeds our economic risk;
  • for the limited storage of your data where erasure is not possible or would entail disproportionate effort owing to the special nature of that storage;
  • for comparison with European and international anti-terror lists where this extends beyond statutory obligations;
  • for the further development of services and products and existing systems and processes;
  • for the disclosure of personal data within the scope of due diligence, e.g. with regard to the sale of a company;
  • to enrich our data through using or searching publicly accessible data;

Where necessary in order for us to provide our service, we process personal data that we have acquired legally from third parties (e.g. address marketing companies, credit agencies).

5. Who receives your data?

Within our company we pass on your personal data to those departments who require these data to fulfil contractual and statutory obligations and/or to assert our legitimate interest.

Your data may moreover be shared with the following instances:

  • processors contracted by us (Art. 28 GDPR) particularly in areas such as IT services, logistics and printing services, external data centres, support/maintenance of IT applications, document processing, purchasing/procurement, marketing, telephony, audit services, lending institutions, courier services;
  • public authorities and institutions on presentation of a statutory or official order under the terms of which we are obliged to provide information about data, report or share data, or where sharing data is in the public interest;

  • other instances with whom you have authorised us to share your data.

6. Transfer of your data to a third country or an international organisation

Data is transferred to instances in states outside the European Union (EU) and/or the European Eco-nomic Area (EEA) – so-called “third countries” – where necessary for the fulfilment of an order/contract from and/or with you, where this is a statutory requirement (e.g. fiscal reporting obligations), where it is in our legitimate interest (e.g. address book shared by the entire centrotherm Group) or the legitimate interest of a third party to do so, or where you have given us your consent.

The processing of your data in a third country may also be undertaken in connection with the employment of service providers within the scope of order processing. Where the country in question is not covered by a resolution of the EU Commission confirming that an adequate level of data protection is in place there, we shall in accordance with EU data protection requirements ensure by means of suitable contracts that your rights and freedoms are adequately protected and guaranteed. We will provide corresponding detailed information to you on request.

7. For how long do we store your data?

Where necessary we process your personal data throughout the duration of our business relationship. This also includes the initiation and handling of a contract.

We are moreover subject to various retention and documentation obligations arising out of the German Commercial Code (HGB) and the German Fiscal Code. The prescribed retention and/or documentation periods set out therein extend up to ten years beyond the end of the business relationship and/or the precontractual legal relationship.

Finally, the retention period is also defined on the basis of legal statutes of limitation which, for instance, are three years according to Art. 195 ff of the Federal Civil Code (BGB) as a rule, but may also be thirty years in certain cases.

8. To what extent is automated decision-making (including profiling) used in individual cases?

We do not use any purely automated decision-making processes as set out in Art. 22 GDPR. Should we use these processes in individual cases we will notify you separately where this is a legal requirement.

You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection authority (Art. 77 GDPR). In principle, Art. 21 GDPR gives you the right to object to our processing of personal data. However this right to object only applies where you can show the existence of very special personal circumstances whereby the rights of our company may override your right to object. Should you wish to exercise one of these rights, please contact our Data Protection Officer.

10. Your obligations in providing us with your personal data

You only need to provide us with those data that are necessary for the provision of your services as a supplier, or those data which we are legally obliged to collect. As a rule, without these data we will not be in a position to conclude a contract with you. Insofar as we request data from you at a later date, you will be informed separately that the provision of such data is voluntary.

11. Information about your right to object – Art. 21 GDPR

You have the right at all times to object to the processing of your data under the provisions of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR (processing is necessary for the purposes of a legitimate interest) or Art. 6 (1) (e) GDPR (processing is necessary in the public interest) where grounds exist arising out of your particular situation. This shall also apply to processing for the purposes of profiling in the sense of Art. 4 (4) GDPR.

If you object, your personal data will no longer be processed unless where we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for such processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or where the processing serves the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

Your objection can be made by simply writing to the address shown at 1. above.

10. Your obligations in providing us with your personal data

You only need to provide us with those data that are necessary for the initiation and performance of a business relationship or a precontractual relationship with us, or those data which we are legally obliged to collect. As a rule, without these data we will not be in a position to conclude or perform the contract. This may also include data that are required later within the scope of the business relation-ship. Insofar as we request data from you at a later date, you will be informed separately that the provision of such data is voluntary.

11. Information about your right to object – Art. 21 GDPR

You have the right at all times to object to the processing of your data under the provisions of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR (processing is necessary for the purposes of a legitimate interest) or Art. 6 (1) (e) GDPR (processing is necessary in the public interest) where grounds exist arising out of your particular situation. This shall also apply to processing for the purposes of profiling in the sense of Art. 4 (4) GDPR.

If you object, your personal data will no longer be processed unless where we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for such processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or where the processing serves the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

We may also process your personal data for the purposes of direct advertising. If you do not wish to receive advertising, you have the right to object at any time. This also applies to profiling where this is connected with direct marketing. We will observe this objection in the future.

Your data will no longer be processed for the purposes of direct advertising if you object to processing for these purposes.

Your objection can be made by simply writing to the address shown at 1. above.

12. Your right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority

You have the right to lodge a complaint with the data protection authority (Art. 77 GDPR). The competent supervisory authority in our case is:

Unseren Vertragsunterlagen, Formularen, Einwilligungserklärungen und den anderen Ihnen zur Verfügung gestellten Informationen (z.B. auf der Webseite oder in den Geschäftsbedingungen) können Sie weitere Details und Ergänzungen zu den Verarbeitungszwecken entnehmen.

3.1 Einwilligung (Art. 6 Abs. 1 a DSGVO)

Falls Sie uns eine Einwilligung zur Verarbeitung von personenbezogenen Daten erteilt haben, ist die jeweilige Einwilligung Rechtsgrundlage für die dort genannte Verarbeitung. Sie können Einwilligungen jederzeit mit Wirkung für die Zukunft widerrufen.

3.2 Erfüllung von vertraglichen Pflichten (Art. 6 Abs. 1 b DSGVO)

Wir verarbeiten Ihre personenbezogenen Daten zum Zwecke der Abwicklung des Bewerbungsverfahrens. Die Verarbeitung kann auch auf elektronischem Wege erfolgen. Dies ist insbesondere dann der Fall, wenn Sie Ihre Bewerbungsunterlagen auf dem elektronischen Wege, beispielsweise per E-Mail oder über ein auf der Internetseite befindliches Webformular an uns übermitteln.

3.3 Erfüllung rechtlicher Verpflichtungen (Art. 6 Abs. 1 c DSGVO)

Wir verarbeiten Ihre personenbezogenen Daten, falls dies zur Erfüllung von rechtlichen Verpflichtungen notwendig ist.

Folgende Daten werden verarbeitet:

  • Name, Vorname
  • Kontaktdaten (wie z.B. Email-Adresse, Anschrift, Telefon-Nr.)
  • Komplette Bewerbungsunterlagen (wie z.B. Lebenslauf, Zeugnisse, Referenzen)

5. Wer erhält Ihre Daten?

Wir geben Ihre personenbezogenen Daten innerhalb unseres Unternehmens an die Bereiche weiter, die diese Daten zur Erfüllung der vertraglichen und gesetzlichen Pflichten bzw. zu der Umsetzung un-seres berechtigten Interesses benötigen.

Darüber hinaus können folgende Stellen Ihre Daten erhalten:

  • von uns eingesetzte Auftragsverarbeiter (Art. 28 DSGVO) insbesondere im Bereich (z.B. IT-Dienstleistungen, Logistik und Druckdienstleistungen, externe Rechenzentren, Unterstützung/Wartung von EDV-/IT-Anwendungen, Belegbearbeitung, Einkauf/Beschaffung, Marketing, Telefonie, Wirtschaftsprüfungsdienstleistung, Kreditinstitute, Kurierdienste);
  • öffentliche Stellen und Institutionen bei Vorliegen einer gesetzlichen oder behördlichen Verpflichtung, nach der wir zur Auskunft, Meldung oder Weitergabe von Daten verpflichtet sind oder die Datenweitergabe im öffentlichen Interesse liegt;
  • Stellen und Institutionen aufgrund unseres berechtigten Interesses oder des berechtigten Interesses des Dritten für im Rahmen der unter Ziffer 3.5 genannten Zwecke (z.B. an Behörden, Auskunfteien, Inkasso, Rechtsanwälte, Gerichte, Gutachter, konzernangehörige Unternehmen, Gremien und Kontrollinstanzen);
  • sonstige Stellen, für die Sie uns Ihre Einwilligung zur Datenübermittlung erteilt haben.

6. Übermittlung Ihrer Daten an ein Drittland oder an eine in-ternationale Organisation

Eine Datenübermittlung an Stellen in Staaten außerhalb der Europäischen Union (EU) bzw. des Europäischen Wirtschaftsraums (EWR), sogenannte Drittländer findet nicht statt.

7. Wie lange speichern wir Ihre Daten?

Schließt der für die Verarbeitung Verantwortliche einen Anstellungsvertrag mit einem Bewerber, werden die übermittelten Daten zum Zwecke der Abwicklung des Beschäftigungsverhältnisses unter Beachtung der gesetzlichen Vorschriften gespeichert. Wird von dem für die Verarbeitung Verantwortlichen kein Anstellungsvertrag mit dem Bewerber geschlossen, so werden die Bewerbungsunterlagen drei Monate nach Bekanntgabe der Absageentscheidung automatisch gelöscht, sofern einer Löschung keine sonstigen berechtigten Interessen des für die Verarbeitung Verantwortlichen entgegenstehen. Sonstiges berechtigtes Interesse in diesem Sinne ist beispielsweise eine Beweispflicht in einem Verfahren nach dem Allgemeinen Gleichbehandlungsgesetz (AGG).

8. Inwieweit gibt es eine automatisierte Entscheidungsfindung im Einzelfall (einschließlich Profiling)?

Von uns werden keine rein automatisierten Entscheidungsverfahren gemäß Artikel 22 DSGVO eingesetzt. Sollten wir diese Verfahren in Einzelfällen einsetzen, werden wir Sie hierüber gesondert informieren, sofern dies gesetzlich vorgegeben ist.

Darüber hinaus besteht ein Beschwerderecht bei einer Datenschutzaufsichtsbehörde (Art. 77 DSGVO). Grund-sätzlich besteht nach Artikel 21 DSGVO das Widerspruchsrecht gegen die Verarbeitung von personenbezogenen Daten durch uns. Dieses Widerspruchsrecht gilt allerdings nur bei Vorliegen ganz besonderer Umstände Ihrer persönlichen Situation, wobei Rechte unseres Hauses Ihrem Widerspruchsrecht ggf. entgegenstehen können. Falls Sie eines dieser Rechte geltend machen wollen, wenden Sie sich bitte an unseren Datenschutzbeauftragten.

10. Umfang Ihrer Pflichten, uns Ihre Daten bereitzustellen

Sie stellen nur diejenigen Daten bereit, die für den Bewerbungsprozess erforderlich sind. Ohne diese Daten werden wir in der Regel nicht in der Lage sein, mit Ihnen einen Arbeitsvertrag zu schließen. Sofern wir darüber hinaus Daten von Ihnen erbitten, werden Sie auf die Freiwilligkeit der Angaben gesondert hingewiesen.
