In general, we only process personal data when necessary for the provision of a functioning website and our content and services. The processing of personal data only takes place on a regular basis if a legal regulation permits this or if you have previously given consent. An exception to this occurs if it is not possible to obtain prior permission for factual reasons and if the processing of the data is permitted by statutory regulations. The collection and use of your personal data is, primarily, for the following purposes:

 

  • to use our website / online services
  • to register for events
  • to subscribe to the newsletter
  • for the contact form and e-mail contact
  • for applications for job advertisements
  • for advertising purposes
  • for fitting tests
  • for press distribution lists
  • video monitoring of the business premises

 

If we obtain consent from the data subject for the processing actions for personal data, Art. 6 (1) lit. a) GDPR is applicable as the legal basis.

When processing personal data that is necessary for fulfilment of a contract whereby the contractual party is the data subject, Art. 6 (1) lit. b) GDPR is applicable as the legal basis. This also applies to processing actions that are necessary for the execution of pre-contractual measures.

If it is necessary to process personal data in order to fulfil a legal obligation for which our company is liable, Art. 6 (1) lit. c) GDPR is applicable as the legal basis.

In the event that essential interests of the data subject or another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, Art. 6 (1) lit. d) GDPR is applicable as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary for the protection of a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the party concerned do not outweigh the first-mentioned interests, then Art. 6, section 1, lit. f) GDPR is applicable as the legal basis.

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data for an application procedure is § 26 BDSG [German Federal Data Protection Act].

 

 

Data is only passed to third parties within the framework of statutory guidelines. We only pass on the user data to third parties if this is necessary, for example, for the purposes of a contract or on the basis of legitimate interests in the economic and effective operation of our business.

 

If we hire subcontractors to provide our services, we will take suitable legal precautions and appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure protection of the personal data in accordance with the pertinent statutory regulations.

 

Third countries are countries in which the GDPR is not directly applicable legislation. This basically includes all countries outside of the EU or European Economic Area.

 

Data is transmitted to a third country or international organisation. In this case, the adequacy decision of the EU Commission is taken into account. This states that it is a safe third country or a safe international organisation which offers an adequate level of protection.

 

The personal data for the data subject is deleted or locked as soon as the purpose of storage lapses. Furthermore, data can be stored if this was intended by the European or national lawmaker within the context of union law regulations, laws or other provisions to which the responsible party is liable. The data is also locked or deleted on expiration of a storage period prescribed by the specified standards unless it is necessary to store the data for a longer period in order to conclude or fulfil a contract.

 

 

Persons who have not yet reached the age of 16 may not send any personal data to us without the consent of all legal guardians. This data will be processed in accordance with this privacy policy.

 

 

We and our service providers shall take technical and organisational security precautions to protect your personal data from any accidental or intentional manipulations, loss or destruction or from being accessed by unauthorised persons. Our data processing and security measures are continually improved in accordance with technical developments.

 

The security measures specifically include the encrypted transfer of data between your browser and our server. A 128-bit SSL (AES 128) encryption technology is used for this purpose.

 

In accordance with statutory provisions, you, as the person concerned, have the right at any time to receive free-of-charge information about your data stored by Hohenstein.

In addition, you can assert your rights to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR), erasure (Art. 17 GDPR) or restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR) against Hohenstein at any time. This also applies to a right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR). 
If you have made your personal data available to us based on your consent, you can withdraw this consent at any time with effect for the future (Art. 7 (3) GDPR).

If you feel that Hohenstein has processed your personal data in an unlawful manner, you can contact any data protection supervisory authority with your complaints.

In addition, you have the right, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you on the basis of Article 6 (1) lit. e GDPR (data processing in the public interest) and Article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR (data processing on the basis of legitimate interests) by e-mail to datenschutz@hohenstein.de or by mail to Hohenstein, Datenschutz, Schlosssteige 1, 74357 Bönnigheim (Art. 21 GDPR).

From time to time, it becomes necessary to edit the content of this information regarding data protection. We therefore reserve the right to change this information at any time. We will also publish the changed version of the data protection information here. If you visit us again, you should therefore read through the data protection information again.

 

B. Purposes and scope of data processing

I. Provision of website and creation of log files

 

Each time our internet site is accessed, our system automatically records data and information from the computer system for the calling computer. The following data is collected in this case:

 

(1) Information about the browser type and the version used
(2) The user’s operating system
(3) The user’s internet service provider
(4) The user’s IP address
(5) Date and time of access
(6) Websites from which the user’s system accesses our internet site
(7)  Websites called from the user’s system via our website

The log files contain IP addresses or other data which enables assignment to a user. This may be applicable, for example, if the link to the website from which the user accesses the internet site, or the link to the website to which the user switches, contains personal data. The data is also saved in the log files for our system. This data is not stored together with other personal user data.

It is saved in log files to ensure the functioning of the website. We also use the data to optimise the website and to guarantee the security of our information technology system. In this context, no evaluation of the data for marketing purposes takes place.

We have a legitimate interest in data processing for the mentioned purposes within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f) DSGVO, as the collection of data and the storage of data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website.

 

Legal basis for temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR.

 

 

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for achieving the purpose of its collection. If the data is collected for provision of the website, this applies when the session is over.

 

If the data is saved in log files, this applies after a maximum of six months. Storage for a longer time is possible. In this case, the IP addresses for the user are deleted or distorted so that assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

 

In accordance with the provisions of Art. 15 - 22 GDPR, you have the right to information, rectification, erasure of your personal data, as well as the right to data portability and the restriction of processing. In the cases of Art. 6 (1) lit. e) and f) GDPR you have the right to object. This also applies to automated individual decision-making, including profiling. If you have given your consent to the processing of your personal data, you can withdraw this consent at any time with effect for the future. If you think that the processing of your personal data by Hohenstein is not lawful, you can complain to any data protection supervisory authority.

In addition to this website, we also maintain presences in various social media, which you can reach via the corresponding buttons on our website. If you visit such a presence, personal data may be transmitted to the provider of the social network.

The social network provider may process the most important data of the computer system from which you visit it - for example, your IP address, the processor type and browser version used, including plug-ins.

It is possible that in addition to the storage of the data you have actually entered in this social media, further information may also be processed by the provider of the social network, perhaps even outside the European Union. If these are US providers who are certified under the Privacy Shield, they have committed themselves to comply with EU data protection standards. 

If you are logged in with your personal user account of the respective network when visiting such a presence, this network can assign the visit to this account.

The processing of personal data is based on our legitimate interests in effective communication and information of our users in accordance with Article 6 (1) lit. f). GDPR.

The purpose and scope of the data collection by the respective medium and the further processing of your data there can be found in the respective provisions of the respective controller, as well as your respective rights, e.g. under:
