2. General and required information
The operator of these pages takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We handle your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the legal data protection requirements and this data protection declaration.
If you use this website, various forms of personal data will be collected. Personal data are all data with which you can be personally identified. The below data protection declaration explains which data we collect and what we use them for. It also explains how and for what purposes this occurs.
We would like to make it clear that data transmission via the Internet (e.g. through email communication) can be open to security breaches. Flawless protection of data from third-party access is not possible.
Information about the controller
The body responsible for data processing on this website is:
SAI Schweiger GmbH
The controller is the natural or legal person who, alone or with others, decides the purposes and means of processing of personal data (e.g. name, email addresses or similar).
Withdrawal of consent to data processing
Many data processing measures are only possible with your express consent. You can withdraw consent once given at any time. To this end, you can email us in any form. The legality of the data processing that took place up to the point of withdrawal is unaffected by this.
Right of objection to data processing in special cases and against direct marketing (art. 21 GDPR)
If data processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. e or f GDPR, you have the right, at any time, to object to the processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your personal situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The legal foundations on which each form of processing is based can be found in this data protection declaration. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data as long as we are unable to demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or if the processing is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims (objection as per Art. 21 Para. 1 GDPR).
If your personal data are processed for the purposes of direct marketing, you have the right at any time to object to the processing of your personal data for such purposes; this also goes for profiling, inasmuch as it is connected to direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will then no longer be used for the purposes of direct marketing (objection as per Art. 21 Para. 2 GDPR).
Right to complain to the responsible regulatory authority
In the case of infringements of the GDPR, the data subject has the right to complain to a regulatory authority, particularly, one in the member state of their ordinary residence, place of work or in the place of the alleged infringement. The right to complain exists without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.
The right to data portability
You have the right to receive or have provided to a third party the data that we process with your consent or automatically in the fulfilment of contracts in a structured, commonly used and machine readable format. If you demand the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only take place if technically possible.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or queries sent to us as the operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the address bar, which will change in your browser from “http://” to “https://”, while a lock symbol appears.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Access, restriction, erasure and rectification
Within the framework of the valid legal prescriptions, you have the right to obtain information at any time and free of charge about the data stored relating to you, its origins and recipients and the purpose of the data processing. You also have the right, as applicable, to rectification, restriction or erasure of these data. For any further personal data questions in this regard, you are welcome to contact us at the address given in the imprint.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data. In this regard, you are welcome to contact us at the address given in the imprint. You have the right to restriction of processing in the following instances:
- If you dispute the correctness of your personal data that we store, we will usually need time to check this. For the duration of this checking process, you have the right to demand the restriction of processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data has occurred / is occurring unlawfully, you are able to request, instead of the deletion of your data, the restriction of its processing.
- If we no longer need your personal data but you do for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, you have the right to demand the restriction of processing instead of erasure.
- If you have lodged an objection as per Art. 21 Para. 1 GDPR, a process must take place to balance your interests and our own. As long as it is unclear whose interests are overriding, you have the right to demand the restriction of processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data will only be processed – excluding storage – with your consent, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person, or for urgent reasons of public interest within the European Union or a Member State.
Objection to advertising emails
The use of contact data published because of the legal obligation to provide an imprint to send unsolicited advertising and informative material is objected to. The operator of the pages reserves the right to take legal measures in the case of unsolicited advertising material, for example, spam emails, being sent.
3. Data collection on our website
These Internet pages sometimes use so-called “cookies”. Cookies do not damage your computer and contain no viruses. Cookies help to make our offering 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 we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal until you delete them yourself. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser again the next time you visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the storage of cookies and only allow them in individual cases, can exclude them in particular cases or in general and can activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. When cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website can be restricted.
Cookies required for the execution of electronic communications processes or to provide certain functions desired by you (e.g. basket function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically flawless and optimised provision of services. If other cookies (e.g. cookies to analyse your surfing behaviour) are stored, these will be specially treated in this data protection declaration.
Matomo (formerly PIWIK) (web analytics service)
The information produced using cookies, for example, time, place and frequency with which you visit the website, including your IP address, is transferred to our PIWIK server and saved there. You IP address is immediately anonymised in this process so that you remain unknown to us as a user. The information created by the cookie regarding your use of this website is not transferred to third parties. You can prevent the installation of cookies by adjusting the settings in your browser; we would like to inform you, however, that in this case, you may not able to use all functions of our website fully.
If you send queries to us via a contact form, your information from the contact form, including the contact data you enter there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the query and in case subsequent questions arise. We will not transfer these data without your consent.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form thus takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time. To this end, you can email us in any form. The legality of the data processing that took place up to the point of withdrawal is unaffected by this.
The data entered by you in contact forms remain with us until you request their deletion, withhold consent to their storage or until the purpose of data storage is no longer present (e.g. when your query has been completely processed). Mandatory legal prescriptions – in particular, limits of retention – remain unaffected.
Contact by email, telephone or fax
If you contact us by email, telephone or fax, you enquiry, including all resulting personal data (name, query) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of answering your request. We will not transfer these data without your consent.
The processing of these data takes place on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your query is connected with the fulfilment of a contract or the execution of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR) and / or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR), as we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of the queries directed to us.
The data sent to us by you in the course of contact requests remain with us until you request their deletion, withhold consent to their storage or until the purpose of data storage is no longer present (e.g. when your request has been completely processed). This in no way prejudices any mandatory legal prescriptions – in particular, legal limits of retention.
Processing of data (customer and contractual data)
We only collect, process and use personal data if it is required for the foundation, content formation or alteration of our legal relationships (basic personal data). This takes place on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR, which allows the processing of data to fulfil a contract or take preliminary measures to a contract. We only collect, process and use personal data on the use of our Internet site (usage data) if this is required to enable the user to use or pay for use of the service.
The customer data are erased after completion of the order or ending of the business relationship. This does not prejudice any other legal retention requirements.
4. Own services
We offer you the opportunity to apply to us (e.g. by email, post or an online application form). In the following, we inform you about the extent, purpose and use of your personal data as collected during the applications process. We ensure that the collection, processing and use of your data take place in accordance with the data protection law in force and all further legal prescriptions and that your data are treated with the highest confidence.
Extent and purpose of data collection
If you send us an application, we process the connected data (e.g. contact and communications data, application documents, notes taken during applicant interview etc.) insofar as is necessary to make decisions about the foundations of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is § 26 BDSG-neu in German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR (general initiation of a contract) and – if you have given consent – Art. 6 Para. 1 1 lit. a GDPR. Consent can be withdrawn at any time. Your personal data are exclusively transmitted within our company to persons involved in the processing of your application.
If the application is successful, the data you give us are stored in our data handling systems on the basis of § 26 BDSG-neu and Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR for the purposes of implementing the employment relationship.
Duration of data retention
If we are unable to offer you a position or you turn down an offer or retract your application, withdraw your consent to data processing or request that we delete the data, the data you have provided incl. any remaining physical application documents will be stored for a maximum of 6 months after the completion of the applications process or retained (retention limit) in order to complete the particulars of the application process in the case of discrepancies (Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f GDPR).
YOU ARE ABLE TO OBJECT TO SUCH RETENTION IF YOU ARE ABLE TO PRESENT LEGITIMATE INTERESTS THAT OVERRIDE OURS.
After the end of the retention period, the data are erased, as long as no legal retention requirement or other legal foundation for further storage has arisen. If it can be expected that retention of your data after the retention limit has passed will be required (e.g. because of an imminent or pending legal dispute), erasure will only take place once the data are no longer at issue. This does not prejudice any other legal retention requirements.
