The protection of your personal data during the collection, processing and use of personal data in connection with your visit to our homepage is important to us.

We are providing information below regarding the type and the extent of the processing of personal data via this website in accordance with Article 13 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

III. Data processing via the website

Your visit to our website is logged. Initially, the following data transmitted by your browser is generally collected:

  • the IP address currently used by your PC or your router
  • date and time
  • type and version of browser
  • the operating system of your PC
  • the pages you have viewed
  • name and size of the requested file(s)
  • as well as, if appropriate, the URL of the referring website.

These data are collected merely for the purposes of data security, to improve our website as well as error analysis on the basis of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The IP address of your computer is evaluated anonymously (shorted to the last 3 characters). Apart from that, you can visit our website without providing your personal details. Please note that data transmission via the internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) may be subject to security gaps. It is not possible to fully protect data against access by third parties. Confidential data should therefore be sent to us via different means, e.g. by post.

Applications

The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application process. This processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends application documents electronically to the controller, for example by e-mail or via a form on the website. If the controller enters into an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data are stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not enter into an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents are deleted after the vacancy has been filled, subject to the statutory provisions, provided that such deletion is not prevented by another legitimate interest of the controller. Another legitimate interest in this sense would be, for example, a burden of proof in legal proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (GETA).

Applications can be processed by us only if they are sent to the email address “human-resource@peiseler.de”. Should you use a different email address of our company, your application will unfortunately not be recognised by our systems and therefore also not taken into consideration. Please bear in mind that an email is not a secure medium. Should your application reach our email server at the above-mentioned email address, we protect your application with highly technical and organisational measures. While your application is on the way to our company via the public internet, we do not have any control over it and are unable to guarantee the level of security of your application. If your sending email server supports STARTTLS, our email server will also offer STARTTLS and thus transport encryption.

Contact form

Personal data (e.g. your name, address or contact details), which you are providing to us, e.g. during the course of an enquiry or otherwise, are stored with us and only processed to communicate with you and they are only processed for the purpose for which you have provided such data to us. These data are processed on the basis of Article 6 (1) (a); 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

Newsletter

We are offering you the option to subscribe to a newsletter via our homepage. Your personal data are collected during this order. To ensure that the newsletter has been ordered by yourself or your email address, you initially receive a confirmation email. You are only accepted in our email distributor and receive the newsletter when you click on the activation link contained in this email. The order of the newsletter is recorded for verification purposes (IP address, date, time). You have the option to unsubscribe the newsletter at any time by notifying us, you can also use the link at the end of each newsletter in particular for this purpose. The legal basis for this is Article 6 (1) (a) of GDPR.

We use the newsletter service CleverReach to send the newsletter. This service processes the data only in relation to the order and on our instructions within the meaning of Article 28 GDPR.

Secure data transfer

To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use an encryption procedure (SSL) via HTTPS, corresponding to the current state of the art.

IV. Recipient of personal data

For the purpose of the implementation and the handling of data processing, we can use service providers by means of contract data processing.

Specifically, we have engaged service providers to send the newsletter as well as for the hosting of our website.

The contractual relationships are regulated with our service providers in accordance with the provisions of Article 28 GDPR, which contain the legally required elements for data protection and data security.

X. Your Rights

According to Articles 15-21 GDPR, you can exercise the following rights regarding the personal data being processed by us, if the conditions described therein are fulfilled.

Right of access

You have a right to access to the personal data concerning you, where such data are being processed by us.

Right to rectification

You have the right to demand the rectification of personal data that have been processed incompletely or inaccurately.

Right to erasure

You have the right to the erasure of personal data concerning you, in particular, where one of the following grounds applies:

  • Your personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
  • You are withdrawing your consent on which the processing of your data was based.
  • You have exercised a right to object to the processing
  • Your data was unlawfully processed.

The right to erasure does, however, not exist, insofar as legitimate interests of the controller oppose such right. These can be, for example

  • personal data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
  • erasure is not possible due to retention requirements

    If data cannot be erased, there may be a right to restriction of processing (subsequently).

 

Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to require us to limit the processing of your personal data if

  • you contest the accuracy of the data and we therefore verify the accuracy,

  • the processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure and instead request the limitation of use

  • we no longer need the data, but you require it for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims,
  • you have objected to the processing of your data, and it is not yet clear whether our legitimate grounds override your grounds.

Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to us, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format; and you have the right to transmit these data to another controller without hindrance from us, provided the processing is based on your consent or on a contract and the processing is carried out by automated means.

Right to object

The data subject shall have the right to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1), including profiling based on those provisions. Insofar as the processing of your personal data is based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw this consent at any time.

XI. Time limits for the erasure of data

Insofar as there is no legally prescribed retention period, the data are erased or destroyed when they are no longer required to achieve the purpose of the processing. Various time limits apply for the retention of personal data, thus data with tax relevance are generally retained for 10 years, other data in accordance with regulations under commercial law generally for 6 years. Finally, the period of storage is also dependent on the statutory limitation periods, which are for example, in accordance with Sections 195 et seqq. of the German Civil Code (BGB), usually three years, however, they can be up to thirty years in individual cases.

XII. Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

According to Article 77 GDPR, every data subject has the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, if the data subject considers that the processing of personal data relating to him or her infringes the GDPR. The responsible supervisory authority in respect of data protection issues is the commissioner for data protection in the federal state in which our company’s registered office is located.

We, as service provider, are responsible for our own content on these pages according to general law (in accordance with Section 7 (1) TMG (Telemedia Act)). According to Sections 8 to 10 TMG, we as service provider are, however, not obliged to monitor transmitted or stored third-party information or to investigate circumstances that point to illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information after having become aware of such activity, in accordance with general law, remain unaffected.
