2. General notices and mandatory information
We would like to point out that data transmissions on the Internet (e.g. through communication by email) can have security gaps. Absolute protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
Note on the responsible entity
The company responsible for the data processing on this website is:
WEGU Holding GmbH
34123 Kassel, Germany
The responsible entity is the natural or legal person who, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, email addresses and the like).
Legally required data protection officer
We assigned a data protection officer for our company.
34123 Kassel, Germany
Revoking your consent to the data processing:
Many data processing activities are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke your already given consent at any time. An informal notification via email is sufficient for this purpose. The legality of the data processing operations performed until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to object to data collection in special cases and to direct marketing (Article 21 General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR))
If your personal data is processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of the personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling if it is related to such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for the purpose of direct marketing (objection according to Article 21  GDPR).
Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
In the event of violations of the GDPR, the persons affected have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the member state of their habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged violation. The right to lodge a complaint exists without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have the data that we process automatically based on your consent or in fulfillment of a contract provided to you or a third party in a conventional, machine-readable format. Insofar as you request the direct transfer of the data to another entity in charge, this can only be carried out to the extent that it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
This website uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as the website operator. You can see that a connection is encrypted when the browser address bar changes from “http://” to “https://” and when there is a lock icon in your browser bar.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blocking, deletion and rectification
Within the framework of the applicable legal regulations, you have the right to free information at any time about your stored personal data, their origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing, as well as a right to the rectification, blocking or deletion of these data. For this and other questions about personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address listed in the legal notice.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request a restriction of the processing of your personal data. For this purpose, you can contact us at any time at the address listed in the legal notice. The right to the restriction of processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we generally need time to review this. For the duration of this review, you have the right to request a restriction of the processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data was/is happening unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of a deletion.
- If we no longer need your personal data but you need the data to exercise, defend or establish legal claims, you have the right to request a restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of a deletion.
- If you have entered an objection in accordance with Art. 21 (1) GDPR, your and our interests must be weighed against each other. During the period in which the overriding interests have not yet been determined, you have the right to request a restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data – apart from its storage – may only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, 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.
3. Data collection on our website
In some places, this website uses so-called cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and contain no viruses. The purpose of cookies is to make our service more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies that we use are “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies are stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies make it possible for us to recognize your browser the next time you visit.
You can set your browser to inform you whenever cookies are placed, to only permit cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general, or activate the automatic deletion of the cookies when the browser is closed. Deactivating cookies may limit the functionality of this website.
Server log files
The website provider automatically compiles and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser transfers to us automatically. These are:
- Browser type and version
- Operating system
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
- IP address
These data are not combined with other data sources.
The legal basis for this data processing is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimization of its website – the server log files must be recorded for this purpose.
When you use the contact form to send us requests, your data from the contact form including the contact information you entered is stored by us for the purposes of processing the request and in case of follow-up questions. We will not share this information without your consent.
The processing of the data entered into the contact form is performed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Article 6  [a] GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal notification via email is sufficient for this purpose. The legality of the data processing operations performed until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Data that you have submitted via the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent for the storage or there is no longer a need to store the data (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions – especially retention periods – remain unaffected.
Request via email, phone or fax
If you contact us via email, phone or fax, your request including all corresponding personal data (name, request) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We will not share these data without your consent.
The legal basis for this data processing is Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR, provided that your request is associated with the fulfillment of a contract or to implement pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (Article 6  [a] GDPR) and/or our legitimate interests (Article 6  [f] GDPR), since we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of requests addressed to us.
Data that you have sent to us via the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent for the storage or there is no longer a need to store the data (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions – especially legal retention periods – remain unaffected.
Processing of data (customer and contract data)
We collect, process and use personal data only insofar as they are necessary for the establishment, substance or modification of the legal relationship (inventory data). This is carried out on the basis of Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR, which permits data processing for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures. We only collect, process and use personal data about the use of our Internet pages (usage data) to the extent necessary to enable the user to use the service or to bill the user.
After the order is completed or the business relationship has ended, the collected customer data is deleted. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.
4. Plugins and Tools
This website uses an API to access the map service by Google Maps. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
Using the functions of Google Maps requires the storage of your IP address. This information is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this website has no influence on this data transmission.
We use Google Maps in the interest of providing an appealing design for our online offers and to make it easy to find the places we indicate on the website. This constitutes a legitimate interest in the sense of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
5. Company services
We offer you the opportunity to send applications to our company (e.g. by email, mail or online application form). In the following, we inform you about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected during the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing and use of your data is carried out in conformity with the applicable data protection law and all other legal provisions and that your data is treated with strict confidentiality.
Scope and purpose of the data collection
When you send us an application, we process your associated personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes taken during interviews, etc.) to the extent that is necessary to decide whether to establish an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is Section 26 German Data Protection Act (BDSG-new) according to German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR (general initiation of a contract) and – if you have given your consent – Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time. Your personal data will only be forwarded to persons within our company who are involved in processing your application.
If your application is successful, the data that you have submitted will be stored in our data processing systems on the basis of Section 26 BDSG-new and Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship.
Data retention period
If we are unable to make you a job offer, or you reject a job offer, withdraw your application, revoke your consent to data processing or ask us to delete the data, the data you have provided to us, including remaining physical application documents, if any, will be stored or saved for a maximum of 6 months after the application process (retention period) to allow us to trace details of the application process in case of discrepancies in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
YOU CAN OBJECT TO THIS STORAGE IF YOU HAVE LEGITIMATE INTERESTS THAT OUTWEIGH OUR INTERESTS.
The data will be deleted after the retention period has expired, as long as there is no legal obligation to retain this data or any other legal reason to store it. If it becomes apparent that it will be necessary to retain your data after the retention period has expired (e.g. due to an imminent or pending legal dispute), the data will not be deleted until it has become irrelevant. Other legal retention obligations remain unaffected.
