We would like to use the information below to provide you “data subject” with an overview of our processing of your personal data and your rights under data protection law. It is generally possible to use our website without entering personal data. However, if you wish to make use of special services offered by our company through our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain your consent.
Personal data, such as your name, address or email address, is always processed in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the “Weckerle GmbH”. The aim of this Privacy Notice is to inform you about the scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process.
As the data controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete possible protection of the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can in principle have security gaps so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, you are free to submit personal data on alternative ways, such as by phone or by post to us.
The data controller, as defined by the GDPR, is:
Holzhofstrasse 26, 82362 Weilheim, Germany
Phone: +49 (0) 881 9293 0
Data controller’s representative: Thomas Weckerle
You can reach the data protection officer as follows:
You may contact our data protection officer directly at any time if you have any questions or suggestions regarding data protection.
We use the following terms in this Privacy Notice, among others:
1. Personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
2. Data subject
A Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller (our company).
Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
4. Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.
Profiling is any form of automated processing of personal data which consists in using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or change of location.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data cannot be attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
7. Data processor
Data processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
A recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigative task under Union or Member State law shall not be considered as recipients.
9. Third party
Third party means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who, under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor, are authorised to process the personal data.
Consent means any freely given specific and informed indication of the data subject’s wishes in the form of a statement or other unambiguous affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR (icw § 25 (1) German Telecommunications-Telemedia Data Protection Act (TTDSG)) serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.
If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of enquiries about our products or services.
If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which the processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. c GDPR.
In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result their name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In this case, the processing would be based on Art. 6 (1) lit. d GDPR.
Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary for the protection of a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not overweigh. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European law. In this respect, the legislature took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if you are a customer of our company (Recital 47, Sentence 2 GDPR).
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption to guarantee the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login data or contact enquiries that you send to us as the operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address bar of the browser contains a “https://” instead of a “http://” and by the lock symbol in your browser bar.
We use this technology to protect your transmitted data.
If you only use our website for informational purposes, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect the data your browser sends our server (in what is known as “server log files”). Our website collects a range of general data and information each time you access a website or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the server?s log files. It may be collected.
1. the browser types and versions used,
2. the operating system used by the accessing system,
3. the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer),
4. the sub-pages accessed via an accessing system on our website,
5. the date and time of access to the website,
6. an internet Protocol (IP) address, and
7. the internet service provider of the accessing system.
When using this general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about your person. Rather, this information is required to
1. deliver the contents of our website correctly,
2. optimise the contents of our website as well as to advertise it,
3. to ensure the permanent operability of our IT systems and the technology of our website, and
4. to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary to prosecute in the event of a cyber-attack.
Therefore, the data and information collected will be used by us for statistical purposes only and for the purpose of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The data of the server log files is stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.
The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest follows from the purposes for data collection listed above.
7.1 General information about cookies
Information generated from the specific device used is stored in cookies. This does not mean, however, that we will gain immediate knowledge of your identity.
In addition, we also use temporary cookies to optimise user-friendliness, which are stored on your end device for a specific period of time. If you visit our site again to use our services, it is automatically recognised that you have already been with us and which entries and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again.
8.1 Contact support / Contact form
Personal data is collected when contacting us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail). Which data is collected in the case of the use of a contact form can be seen from the respective contact form. This data is stored and used exclusively for the purpose of answering your request or for contacting you and the associated technical administration. The legal basis for processing the data is our legitimate interest in responding to your request in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. If your contact is aimed at concluding a contract, the additional legal basis for processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR. Your data will be deleted after final processing of your request; this is the case if it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter concerned has been conclusively clarified and the deletion does not conflict with any legal obligations to retain data.
8.2 Application Management / job exchange
We collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. The processing may also take place electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits the relevant application documents to us electronically, for example by e-mail or via a web form on the website. If we conclude an employment or service 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 we do not conclude a contract with the applicant, the application documents are automatically deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests on our part oppose deletion. Another legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the German Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz [AGG]).
The legal basis for processing your data is Art. 88 GDPR icw § 26 (1) German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz [BDSG]). If you give us your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR to continue storing your data, we may also consider you for future job offers.
To process online applications, we use the applicant management software Umantis by Haufe-Lexware GmbH & Co. KG (“Haufe-Lexware”), A company of the Haufe Group, Munzinger Straße 9, 79111 Freiburg. We concluded an order processing agreement pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR with Haufe-Lexware.
You can access our privacy information for online applications directly via the applicant management software.
9.1 Right to confirmation
You have the right to request confirmation from us as to whether personal data relating to you will be processed.
9.2 Right to information (Article 15 GDPR)
You have the right to obtain information about the personal data stored about you at any time, free of charge, as well as the right to access a copy of such data from us, in accordance with the statutory provisions.
9.3 Right to rectification (Article 16 GDPR)
You have the right to request the immediate rectification of incorrect personal data relating to yourself. Furthermore, the data subject has the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, taking into account the purposes of the processing.
9.4 Erasure (Article 17 GDPR)
You have the right to demand that we erase the personal data relating to you be deleted without delay, provided that one of the reasons provided by law applies and if processing or further storage is not required.
9.5 Restriction to processing (Article 18 GDPR)
You have the right to request that we restrict the processing of your data if one of the legal requirements is met.
9.6 Data transferability (Article 20 GDPR)
You have the right obtain personal data relating to you that you provided us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You also have the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance by us, to whom the personal data was provided, provided that the processing is based on the consent pursuant to Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR or Article 9 Paragraph 2(a) GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Article 6 Paragraph 1(b) GDPR, and the data are processed using automated procedures, unless processing is necessary to complete a task, is in the public interest or is carried out in the exercise of an official authority assigned to us.
Furthermore, when exercising your right to data transferability pursuant to Article 20 Paragraph 1 GDPR, you have the right to have personal data transferred directly from one controller to another, provided this is technically feasible and does not impede the rights and freedoms of other persons.
9.7 Objection (Article 21 GDPR)
You have the right to lodge an objection to the processing of personal data relating to you for reasons relating to your particular situation where this is done on the basis of Article 6 Paragraph 1(e) (data processing in the public interest) or (f) (data processing on the basis of the weighing of legitimate interests) GDPR.
This also applies to profiling based on these provisions pursuant to Article 4 Number 4 GDPR.
Should you lodge an objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling and legitimate reasons for such processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or where processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
In individual cases, we process your personal data for direct marketing purposes. You have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling where this is connected to this kind of direct marketing. Should you object to the processing of your data for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process your personal data for this purpose.
In addition, you have the right to object to our processing of your personal data for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89 Paragraph 1 GDPR for reasons arising from your particular situation, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest.
You are free to exercise your right to lodge an objection in relation to the use of information society services, Directive 2002/58/EC notwithstanding, by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
9.8 Revocation of consent regarding data protection
You have the right to revoke any consent to the processing of personal data at any time with future effect.
9.9 Lodging a complaint with a supervisory authority
You have the right to complain to a supervisory authority responsible for data protection about our processing of personal data.
We process and store your personal data only for the period of time necessary to meet the storage purpose or as required by the legal provisions to which our company is subject.
If the storage purpose no longer applies or if a required retention period expires, personal data will be routinely blocked or erased in accordance with the statutory provisions.
The criterion for the duration of the retention of personal data is the respective legal retention period. Once this period expires, the data in question will be routinely erased, provided it is no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.
