2. General information and mandatory information

Privacy

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

When you use this website, various personal data is collected. Personal data is data with which you can be personally identified. This privacy statement explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how this is done and for what purpose.

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

Phone: +49 9621 65022-12
E-Mail: daniel.weidner@foerster.gmbh

Responsible party is the natural or legal person who, alone or jointly with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses, etc.).

 

WRevocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing processes are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke an already given consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal message by e-mail. The legality of the data processing carried out prior to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

 

Right to object to data collection in special cases and to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

If the data processing is carried out on the basis of Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. e or f GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which processing is based can be found in this privacy statement. If you lodge an objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling reasons for processing which are worthy of protection and which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or unless the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims (objection in accordance with Art. 21 Para. 1 GDPR).

If your personal data are processed for the purpose of direct advertising, you have the right to object, at any time, to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising, including profiling, insofar as it relates to such direct advertising. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for the purpose of direct advertising (objection according to Art. 21 Para. 2 GDPR).

 

Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority

In case of violations of the GDPR, the persons concerned have a right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, place of work or place of the suspected violation. The right of appeal exists irrespective of other administrative or judicial remedies.

 

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data, which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract, handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible person, this will take place only to the extent that it is technically feasible.

 

SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses 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 website provider. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

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

 

Information, blocking, deletion and correction

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to obtain information free of charge at any time about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, the right to correct, block or delete this data. For this as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address listed in the "company details".

 

Right to restrict processing

You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time at the address listed in the "company details". The right to restrict the processing exists in the following cases:

  • If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the assessment, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data was/is carried out unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing 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 we restrict the processing of your personal data instead of deleting it.
  • If you have lodged an objection under Art. 21 Para. 1 GDPR, a balance must be found between your interests and ours. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data - apart from their storage – may only be processed with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting 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

Cookies

The website sometimes uses so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our website more user-friendly, more effective and safer. 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 end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser on your next visit.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the cookie settings and allow them only in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you disable cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.

Cookies, which are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions requested by you (e.g. shopping 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 error-free and optimised provision of his services. If other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysing your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are treated separately in this privacy statement.

 

Server log files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically sends to us. This information includes the following:

  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP-Address

These data will not be fused with other data sources.

These data are recorded on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website provider has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimisation of his website - for this purpose the server log files must be collected.

 

Contact form

If you send us your inquiries via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact data you entered there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal message by e-mail. The legality of the data processing carried out prior to the data processing remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent for storage or until the purpose for which the data was stored no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

 

Request by e-mail, telephone or fax

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

This data is processed on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your inquiry is related to the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases the 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 inquiries addressed to us.

The data sent to us by you via contact inquiries remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent for storage or until the purpose for which the data was stored no longer applies (e.g. after your inquiry has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular legal retention periods – remain unaffected.

6. Own services

Applications

We offer you the opportunity to apply for a job with us (e.g. by e-mail, post or online application form). In the following, we will 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 accordance with the applicable data protection law and all other legal provisions and that your data is treated in strict confidence.

Scope and purpose of data collection

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

If the application is successful, the data submitted by you will be stored in our data processing systems on the basis of § 26 GDPR-new and Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR for the purpose of the employment relationship.

Retention period of data

If we are unable to make you a job offer, you reject a job offer, withdraw your application, revoke your consent to data processing or ask us to delete the data, the data you provide, including any remaining physical application documents, will be stored or retained for a maximum of 6 months after completion of the application process (retention period) in order to be able to trace the details of the application process in the event of discrepancies (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR).

YOU MAY OBJECT TO THIS STORAGE IF YOU HAVE LEGITIMATE INTERESTS THAT OUTWEIGH OUR INTERESTS.

After expiry of the retention period, the data will be deleted, unless there is a legal obligation to retain the data or another legal reason for further storage. If it is evident that it will be necessary to store your data after the retention period has expired (e.g. due to an impending or pending lawsuit), the data will only be deleted once they have become irrelevant. Other statutory retention requirements remain unaffected.
