We would like to point out that the USA is not a safe third country within the meaning of EU data protection law. US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as the person concerned being able to take legal action against this. It cannot therefore be ruled out that US authorities (e.g. secret services) process, evaluate and permanently store your data on US servers for surveillance purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities. We refer to the SCCs: https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN-DE/TXT/?uri=CELEX:32004D0915

  • If the processing of your personal data was/is occurring unlawfully, you can request that data processing be restricted instead of deletion.

  • If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted instead of deletion.

6. Own services

Handling applicant data

We offer you the opportunity to apply to us (e.g. by email, post or via the online application form). Below we will inform you about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected as part of the application process. We assure that the collection, processing and use of your data is carried out in accordance with applicable data protection law and all other legal provisions and that your data will be treated with strict confidentiality.

Scope and purpose of data collection

If you send us an application, we process your associated personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes from job interviews, etc.) to the extent that this is necessary to decide on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is Section 26 BDSG-new under German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter b GDPR (general contract initiation) and – if you have given your consent – Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter a GDPR . Consent can be revoked at any time. Your personal data will only be passed on within our company to people who are involved in processing your application.

If the application is successful, the data you submit will be stored in our data processing systems for the purpose of carrying out the employment relationship on the basis of Section 26 BDSG-new and Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter b GDPR.

Data retention period

If we cannot make you a job offer, you reject a job offer or withdraw your application, we reserve the right to keep the data you have transmitted for up to 6 months based on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR). from the end of the application process (rejection or withdrawal of the application). The data will then be deleted and the physical application documents destroyed. The storage serves in particular for evidentiary purposes in the event of a legal dispute. If it becomes clear that the data will be required after the 6-month period has expired (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), deletion will only take place when the purpose for further storage no longer applies.

Longer storage can also take place if you have given your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR) or if legal retention obligations conflict with deletion.

Job offers - Softgarden

On our website we present our current training and job offers. For this we use the Softgarden service.

Softgarden is integrated by embedding the service on our website using a so-called “iFrame”. When loading this iFrame, Softgarden may collect information (including personal data) and process it. This ensures that Softgarden only transmits the information to servers within the EU.

Information about Softgarden's data protection can be found at: https://metallwarenfabrik1.softgarden.io/de/data-security

The data is automatically transmitted by your respective browser when you access our website using this iFrame. This includes the following information:

  • The time the website was accessed (request to the host provider's server),

  • URL of the website from which you accessed the website,

  • IP address of your computer.
     

The purpose of this processing is to increase the diversity of what our website offers and to provide you with a variety of application options.

The legal basis for the use of Softgarden is the order processing contract concluded with softgarden e-Recruiting GmbH in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. Softgarden processes the data on our behalf.

Our social media appearances

Data processing through social networks

We maintain publicly accessible social media profiles. You can find the social networks we use in detail below.

Social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, etc. can usually comprehensively analyze your user behavior when you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. like buttons or advertising banners). Visiting our social media presence triggers numerous data protection-relevant processing operations. In detail:

If you are logged into your social media account and visit our social media presence, the operator of the social media portal can assign this visit to your user account. However, your personal data may also be collected if you are not logged in or do not have an account on the respective social media portal. In this case, this data is collected, for example, via cookies that are stored on your device or by recording your IP address.

With the help of the data collected in this way, the operators of the social media portals can create user profiles in which your preferences and interests are stored. In this way, interest-based advertising can be shown to you inside and outside of the respective social media presence. If you have an account with the respective social network, interest-based advertising can be displayed on all devices on which you are logged in or were logged in.

Please also note that we cannot understand all processing processes on the social media portals. Depending on the provider, further processing operations may therefore be carried out by the operators of the social media portals. Details can be found in the terms of use and data protection regulations of the respective social media portals.

Legal basis

Our social media presence is intended to ensure the broadest possible presence on the Internet. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The analysis processes initiated by the social networks may be based on different legal bases that must be specified by the operators of the social networks (e.g. consent within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR).

Responsible person and assertion of rights

If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g. Facebook), we, together with the operator of the social media platform, are responsible for the data processing operations triggered by this visit. In principle, you can exercise your rights (information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability and complaint) both. us as well as against the operator of the respective social media portal (e.g. Facebook).

Please note that despite our shared responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have full influence on the data processing operations of the social media portals. Our options depend largely on the corporate policy of the respective provider.

Storage period

The data we collect directly via the social media presence will be deleted from our systems as soon as the purpose for storing it no longer applies, you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies. Saved cookies remain on your device until you delete them. Mandatory legal provisions – especially retention periods – remain unaffected.

We have no influence on the storage period of your data, which is stored by the operators of the social networks for their own purposes. For details, please contact the operators of the social networks directly (e.g. in their data protection declaration, see below).
