Where personal data are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object the processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.

h) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling

Each data subject, whose personal data are processed, is granted the right by the European directive and regulatory authority not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly significantly affects him or her.

This shall not apply if the decision:

  • is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller;
  • is authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests; or

9. Data protection concerning applications and the application process

We collect and process personal applicant data for the purpose of handling the application process. The processing may also be done electronically. This is often the case, if the applicant sends his or her application via email, or if the applicant uses an application form on the website for transferring his or her data to the controller. In the event of entering into an employment contract with an applicant, the transferred data shall be stored in consideration of legal regulations for the purpose of employment. If there is no contract of employment concluded with the applicant, applications shall be deleted automatically two months after the rejection of a job application has been declared; provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller oppose deletion. Along these lines other legitimate interest may be the burden of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act.

 

10. Legal basis for processing

We consider point a of Article 6 (1) of the GDPR to be the legal basis for our company’s processings for which we seek consent for a specific purpsose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, e.g. processings that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the performance of any other service or compensation, the processing is based on point b of Article 6 (1) of the GDPR. The same is applicable to processing that is necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures, e.g. in cases of inquiries to our products or services. Is our company subjected to legal obligations which demand the processing of personal data, e.g. the fulfillment of fiscal obigaionts, the processing is based on point c of Article 6 (1) of the GDPR. In some cases the processing of personal data may become necessary, if your vital interests or that of another natural person have to be protected. This would be the case, for example, if a visitior was hurt on our premises and in consequence his or her name, age, health insurance data, or further vital information had to be passed to a doctor, a hospital, or another third party. In this case the processing would be based on point d of Article 6 (1) of the GDPR. Thereon are based all proceedings which are not included in any of the legal bases mentioned before, if the processing is necessary for the preservation of a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. Such processings are permitted particularly, because the European legislator especially mentioned them. In this respect he holds the view pursuant to recital 47 (2) of the GDPR that a legitimate interest could be assumed, if the data subject is a customer of the controller.

 

11. Legitimate interests in processing pursued by the controller or a third party

If the processing of personal data is based on point f of Article 6 (1) of the GDPR, our legitimate interest is the performance of our business in favor of the welfare of our employees.

 

12. Storage period in which personal data are stored

The storage period of personal data is based on the respective legal retention period. After the expiry of the retention period respective data shall be routinely deleted, provided that they are no longer necessary for the contractual performance or contractual initiation.

 

13. Legal or contractual regulations for the provision of personal data and possible consequences of non-provision

We inform you that the provision of personal data is partially mandatory (e.g. fiscal regulations) or may arise from contractual arangements (e.g. information on the contracting party). It may be necessary for the conclusion of a contract that you provide us with personal data, which in consequence have to be processed by us. For example, you are obliged to provide us with personal data, so that we conclude a contract with you. Non-provision of personal data would result in the non-realization of the contract. Before providing personal data you have to contact a member of our staff. Our staff explains to the data subject case-related, whether the provision of personal data is legally or contractually required, or necessary for the conclusion of the contract, if there is an obligation to provide personal data; and which consequences the non-provision of personal data might have.

 

14. Version of the data privacy statement

We reserve the right to modify our data privacy statement with legislative amendments. Therefore, always observe the date of the latest modification.
