B. General information on data processing

Personal data
Personal data is information about personal or factual circumstances that can be easily and clearly assigned to you. This includes, for example, your name, your address, your telephone number, or your e-mail address.

Scope of the processing of personal data
As a matter of principle, we collect and use personal data of our users only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website and our contents and services. The collection and use of personal data of our users is regularly only carried out with the consent of the user. An exception is made in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Article 6 paragraph 1 letter a of the EU Basic Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. In the processing of personal data which is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6 (1) (b) of the Basic EU Data Protection Regulation serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6 paragraph 1 letter c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6 paragraph 1 letter d GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

Data erasure and retention period
The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or disabled as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws, or other regulations to which the person responsible is subject. Data will also be disabled or deleted when a retention period defined by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need to continue storing the data for the purpose of concluding or fulfilling a contract.

 

C. Collection and processing of personal data

 
IP addresses

It is not necessary for you to provide personal data in order to simply visit our website and access the information contained there. During your visit to our website, we only collect and use data that your Internet browser automatically transmits to us:

  • Date and time of the access to one of our Internet pages
  • Your browser type
  • Your browser settings
  • Your IP address
  • The pages you have viewed
  • The Internet address of the website from which you came

to our website by clicking on a link (so-called referrer).

Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f GDPR.

Purpose of data processing
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user's computer. For this purpose, the user's IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session. The storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data serves us to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

Possibility of objection and removal
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. There is therefore no possibility of objection on the part of the user.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by an IP anonymization to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google.

Application form

If you provide WEMAS Absperrtechnik GmbH with personal data via the application form, we will only use this data for the application procedure. It will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.

Legal basis for data processing
If the sending aims at the conclusion of a contract, an additional legal basis for the processing is Article. 6 paragraph 1 lit. b GDPR. The same applies analogously to postal items. If your data is passed on to third parties, this will only happen with your consent. The legal basis for the processing of the data is Article 6 paragraph 1 letter a GDPR if the user has given their consent. If your documents are passed on within our group of companies, the legal basis for processing is Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f GDPR.

Purpose of the data processing
The data and files transmitted by you will be stored and used exclusively for the recording and processing of the application. If you apply for an advertised position, we will also forward your application to the relevant specialist department within our group of companies and to the management.

Duration of storage
After successful completion of the application procedure, your data and files will continue to be used in the context of the employment relationship that has arisen. If the application you have sent is not successful, we will store the data and files for a period of six weeks in order to be able to answer questions in connection with your application. Your data and files will then be deleted. This does not apply if legal regulations prevent deletion or if further storage is necessary for verification purposes.

Possibility of objection and removal
You have the right to withdraw your application at any time and thus revoke your consent to the processing of your personal data with effect for the future. For this purpose, it is sufficient to send a new message via the contact form or a message by e-mail. If the user contacts us by e-mail, they can object to the storage of their personal data at any time. In such a case the conversation cannot be continued. All personal data stored in the course of the contact will be deleted in this case, unless legal retention periods conflict with this. The same applies analogously to postal deliveries.

 

Contact form, e-mail contact, postal deliveries

If you provide WEMAS Absperrtechnik GmbH with personal or company data via the contact form, we will use this data only for the purpose of contacting you. Your data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent. If you send WEMAS Absperrtechnik GmbH a comment, question, suggestion or feedback by e-mail and this e-mail contains your e-mail address or user information, WEMAS Absperrtechnik GmbH may use this data to reply to you if necessary. Even when contacting us by e-mail, your data will not be passed on to third parties. If you do not wish to receive an e-mail from WEMAS Absperrtechnik GmbH, you can inform us of this at any time by e-mail.

Please note that complete confidentiality and data security cannot be guaranteed when communicating via the Internet (e.g. by e-mail). We therefore recommend the use of encrypted e-mails or by post for confidential information.

Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the processing of the data is Article 6 paragraph 1 letter a GDPR, if the user has given their consent. The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f GDPR. If the sending aims at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Article 6 paragraph 1 letter b GDPR. The same applies analogously to postal deliveries.

Purpose of the data processing
The processing of the personal data from the input mask serves solely to process the establishment of contact or the processing of an application procedure. In the case of contact by e-mail, this also includes the necessary legitimate interest in the processing of the data. The same applies analogously to postal deliveries. The other personal data processed during the sending process serve to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

Duration of storage
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purpose for which they were collected. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form, the application form and those sent by e-mail or post, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is ended when it can be concluded from the circumstances that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified. Further retention periods may result from the German Fiscal Code or the German Commercial Code. Any additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of seven days at the latest.

Possibility of objection and removal
The user has the possibility to revoke their consent to the processing of personal data at any time with effect for the future. For this purpose, a new message via the contact form or a message by e-mail is sufficient. If the user contacts us by e-mail, they can object to the storage of their personal data at any time. In such a case the conversation cannot be continued. All personal data stored in the course of the contact will be deleted in this case, unless legal retention periods conflict with this. The same applies analogously to postal deliveries.
