We would therefore like to take this opportunity to inform you which of your personal data we collect when you visit our website and for what purposes it is used.

General information

This privacy policy fulfils the legal requirements for transparency in the processing of personal data. This is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, information such as your name, age, address, telephone number, date of birth, email address, IP address or user behaviour when visiting a website. Information for which we cannot establish a connection to your person (or only with disproportionate effort), e.g. anonymised information, is not personal data. The processing of personal data (e.g. the collection, retrieval, use, storage or transmission) always requires a legal basis and a defined purpose.

Stored personal data will be deleted as soon as the purpose of the processing has been achieved and there are no legitimate reasons for further storage of the data. We will inform you about the specific storage periods or criteria for storage in the sections on individual processing operations. Irrespective of this, we store your personal data in individual cases for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims and in the event of statutory retention obligations.

Information in accordance with Article 13 GDPR

This information is intended for customers, interested parties, suppliers and employees. Your personal data will be processed by us for the following purposes:

To fulfil our contractual obligations (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR).
For the fulfilment of pre-contractual obligations (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR).
To respond to enquiries (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR).
If you have given us your consent to process your personal data for specific purposes (e.g. to receive our newsletter), the data processing takes place on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR).
To fulfil legal obligations to which our company is subject (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR).
Where necessary, we also process your data to protect our legitimate interests, in particular to assert legal claims and defend ourselves in legal disputes or to ensure IT security, to consult and exchange data with credit agencies to determine creditworthiness and default risks, for direct advertising and market research unless you have objected to the use of your data for this purpose, for measures for business management and further development of services and products, for measures for product and sales optimisation, for risk management measures, for the prevention or investigation of criminal offences (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR).

Categories of recipients of the personal data

Within our company, only those employees have access to the data who absolutely need it to fulfil their tasks (need-to-know principle). Individual processes and services are carried out by carefully selected and data protection-compliant service providers based within the EEA or, if service providers are based outside the EEA, where we have implemented data protection mechanisms to secure the transfer of data. If service providers commissioned by us gain access to personal data in the performance of their services, order processing contracts have been concluded with them in accordance with Art. 28 para. 3 GDPR.

Duration of data storage

The data processed by us is stored for the duration of the existence and processing of the contractual relationship and in compliance with statutory retention periods. These are in particular commercial and tax retention obligations under the German Commercial Code (HGB) and the German Fiscal Code (AO). The regular retention and documentation periods are up to ten years. If there is no contractual relationship, we only process the data for as long as required for the specific purpose.

Your rights as a data subject

Under the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), you have the following rights as a data subject:

Deletion in accordance with Art. 17 GDPR of the data stored by us if one of the reasons stated in Art. 17 GDPR applies (e.g. fulfilment of purpose), unless the processing is necessary to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information, to fulfil a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims;
restriction of processing pursuant to Art. 18 GDPR if the accuracy of the data is contested, the processing is unlawful, we no longer need the data and you oppose the erasure of the data because you need it for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or you have objected to processing pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR.
Data portability pursuant to Art. 20 GDPR, insofar as you have provided us with personal data on the basis of consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR or on the basis of a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR and these have been processed by us using automated procedures. You will receive your data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format or we will transmit the data directly to another controller if this is technically feasible.
Objection pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR to the processing of your personal data, insofar as this is based on our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e, f GDPR and there are reasons for this arising from your particular situation or the objection is directed against direct advertising. The right to object does not exist if overriding, compelling legitimate grounds for the processing can be demonstrated or the processing is carried out for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. When asserting your right to object, we ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your data as we have done. Of course, you can also object to the processing of your personal data for advertising purposes at any time. To do so, please send your objection to the address given in our legal notice.

We need this data to process your enquiry and to be able to answer any follow-up questions. You are not obliged to provide us with this data. However, we cannot process your enquiry without this data. We will forward the data from the contact form to our affiliated company, MT GmbH. Under data protection law, MT GmbH is jointly responsible with us for processing the data. We have set out the details of the joint data processing and the question of who fulfils which data protection obligations under the GDPR in an agreement.

Purpose and legal basis

This data is processed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR if your enquiry is related to the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. Otherwise, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the enquiries addressed to us (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR) if you have previously given it.

You have the opportunity to apply to us on our website (e.g. by e-mail, post or online application form).

Purpose and legal basis

We process the personal data of applicants in accordance with the legal requirements for the purpose of initiating an employment relationship (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, § 26 para. 1 BDSG).

We also use the services of the professional networks LinkedIn and XING to contact potential applicants. In this respect, the operators of the networks act as processors for us in accordance with our instructions. The legal basis for data processing when approaching potential applicants on our behalf is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR (our legitimate interests).

We are then obliged to delete or anonymise your data. In this case, the data will only be available to us as so-called metadata without direct personal reference for statistical analyses (e.g. proportion of women or men in applications, number of applications per period, etc.).

If it is evident that further storage of the data after the 6-month period is necessary to safeguard our legitimate interests (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), the data will only be deleted when the purpose for further storage no longer applies. The legal basis for this further data storage is our legitimate interests in the assertion, exercise or defence of civil law claims (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR in conjunction with Art. 24 para. 1 no. 2 GDPR). § Section 24 para. 1 no. 2 BDSG or, insofar as special categories of personal data are stored, Art. 9 para. 2 lit. f GDPR in conjunction with Section 24 para. 2 BDSG). § Section 24 para. 2 BDSG).

If you have provided special categories of personal data in your application, such as health information, your consent also extends to this data. You are not obliged to provide us with your application data for our talent pool.

Consent to the inclusion of application data in the talent pool is voluntary and can be revoked at any time for the future. The withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of data processing based on consent before its withdrawal. You are welcome to send your cancellation to datenschutz@god.de or to one of the other responsible companies.

Your application documents will be deleted from the talent pool at the latest after expiry of the storage period or in the event of cancellation or acceptance of a job offer by one of the companies responsible for the talent pool.

However, we cannot send you a newsletter without this data.

When processing the data you provide when registering for the newsletter, we rely exclusively on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR as the legal basis.

Brevo offers the possibility to analyse the performance of our newsletter.

Brevo also offers the possibility to better customise the newsletter to our target groups by dividing the newsletter recipients into different categories, such as age, gender or place of residence.

Irrespective of this, the operator may be able to process your data (e.g. IP address) even if you are not logged into your account or do not have an account there at all.

The operator summarises this data in user profiles in which your preferences and interests are stored. These profiles are used to display personalised advertising within and outside the respective social media presence. If you have an account with the respective social network, the personalised advertising can generally be displayed on all devices on which you are logged in or were logged in.

Depending on the platform, further processing operations may be carried out by the operators of the social media portals, over which we have no influence. For details, please refer to the terms of use and privacy policies of the respective social media portals.

Our social media presences are intended to ensure the broadest possible presence on the internet in line with our legitimate interests.

Despite the joint responsibility with the social media portal operators, we have no full influence on the data processing operations of the portals.
