Privacy policy

Data protection

The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this privacy policy.

The use of our website is usually possible without providing personal data. Insofar as personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail addresses) is collected on our pages, this is always done, as far as possible, on a voluntary basis. This data will not be disclosed to third parties without your express consent.

We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.

Storage period

Unless a more specific storage period has been specified within this data protection declaration, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for the data processing no longer applies. If you assert a legitimate request for deletion or revoke consent to data processing, your data will be deleted unless we have other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g. retention periods under tax or commercial law); in the latter case, the data will be deleted once these reasons no longer apply.

Conclusion of a contract for order processing
To ensure data protection-compliant processing, we have concluded an order processing contract with our hoster.

Data collected and purpose of processing

We collect personal data (e.g. names, addresses, telephone numbers or e-mail addresses) for marketing purposes such as sending newsletters, print media or for correspondence purposes. Data is only collected if you provide it to us voluntarily (e.g. through registration, contact requests, surveys, etc.) and we are entitled to process or use it on the basis of consent granted by you or on the basis of a statutory provision.

If you wish to receive newsletters offered on the website, we require your company name, surname, first name, e-mail address and your consent that you agree to receive the newsletter. You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the respective “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter.

If you have consented to the collection of data, we may pass on your personal data to subsidiaries of Techtory Automation GmbH for the above-mentioned purposes.

We will not sell or otherwise market your personal information to third parties.

Techtory Automation GmbH cooperates with service providers in connection with the operation of this website and the services provided via the website, such as for hosting or IT maintenance.

The collection and processing of your personal application data as part of our online application process is exclusively for the purpose of filling vacancies within our company. As a matter of principle, your data will only be forwarded to the internal departments and specialist departments of our company responsible for the specific application procedure. Your application data will not be used for any other purpose or passed on to third parties.

Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. For this purpose, you can contact us at any time. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:

  • If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the review, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data
  • If the processing of your personal data happened/is happening unlawfully, you may request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure
  • If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or enforce legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of erasure
  • If you file an objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR, a balance must be struck between your interests and ours. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data may – apart from being stored – only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

Information, erasure and correction

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction or erasure of this data. You can contact us at any time with regard to this and other questions on the subject of personal data.

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent already given at any time. For this purpose, an informal notification by e-mail to us is sufficient. The lawfulness of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority

In the event of violations of data protection law, the data subject shall have a right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority for data protection issues is the state data protection commissioner of the federal state in which our company is based. The competent supervisory authority for data protection for us is:

The State Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information of Baden-Württemberg
(P.O. Box 10 29 32, 70025 Stuttgart, Germany).

Objection to advertising e-mails

The use of contact data published within the scope of the obligation to provide publication details for the transmission of not expressly requested advertising and information materials is hereby contradicted. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as spam e-mails.

Contact form

If you send us inquiries via the contact form, the information you provide in the inquiry form, including the contact data you enter there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not share this data without your consent.

The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR, provided that your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR) if this has been requested.

The data you send to us via contact requests will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.

Request by e-mail, phone or fax

If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your inquiry including all resulting personal data (name, inquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not share this data without your consent.

The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, provided that your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6 (1) f DSGVO) or on your consent (Art. 6 (1) a DSGVO) if this has been requested.

The data you send to us via contact requests will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.

Data protection in case of applications and during the application procedure

The data controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. The processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends corresponding application documents to the data controller electronically, for example by e-mail or via an application form located on the website. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the data controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents shall be automatically deleted two months after the notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the data controller prevent such deletion. Another legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (GETA).

SSL or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address bar of the browser changes from http:// to https:// and by the lock symbol in your browser bar.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Xing

The data controller has integrated components of Xing on this website. Xing is an Internet-based social network that allows users to connect with existing business contacts and make new business contacts. Individual users can create a personal profile of themselves on Xing. Companies can, for example, create company profiles or publish job offers on Xing.

The operating company of Xing is XING AG, Dammtorstraße 30, 20354 Hamburg, Germany.

Each time an individual page is accessed on this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Xing component (Xing plug-in) has been integrated, the respective Xing component automatically causes the internet browser on the data subject’s IT system to download an image of the corresponding Xing component from Xing. Further information on the Xing plug-ins can be found at https://dev.xing.com/plugins. As part of this technical process, Xing receives information about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in to Xing at the same time, Xing recognizes which specific subpage of our website the data subject is visiting each time the data subject accesses our website and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the Xing component and assigned by Xing to the respective Xing account of the person concerned. If the data subject activates one of the Xing buttons integrated on our website, for example the “Share” button, Xing assigns this information to the personal Xing user account of the data subject and stores this personal data.

Xing always receives information via the Xing component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged into Xing at the same time as accessing our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Xing component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to Xing, they can prevent the transmission by logging out of their Xing account before accessing our website.

The data protection provisions published by Xing, which can be accessed at https://www.xing.com/privacy, provide information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by Xing. Furthermore, Xing has published privacy notices for the XING Share button at https://www.xing.com/app/share?op=data_protection.
