Newsletter

Newsletter data

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an email address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the email address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Further data will not be collected or only on a voluntary basis. We use these data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass them on to third parties.

MailChimp has a certification according to the “EU-US Privacy-Shield”. The “Privacy-Shield” is an agreement between the European Union (EU) and the USA, which is intended to ensure compliance with European privacy standards in the USA.

With the help of MailChimp we can   analyze   our newsletter campaigns.  When you   open an e-mail sent with MailChimp, a file contained in the e-mail (so-called web-beacon) connects to the servers of MailChimp in the USA. This way it can be determined whether a newsletter message was opened and which links were clicked on, if any. Technical information is also collected (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type and operating system). This information cannot be assigned to the respective newsletter recipient. It is used exclusively for statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better adapt future newsletters to the interests of the recipients.

The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time by unsubscribing the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations that have already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data you provide us with for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from the newsletter distribution list after you unsubscribe.  Data that has been stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected.

After you have been removed from the newsletter distribution list, your e-mail address may be stored in a blacklist by us or the newsletter service provider to prevent future mailings. The data from the blacklist will only be used for this purpose and will not be merged with other data. This serves both your interest and our interest in compliance with the legal requirements when sending newsletters (legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1 lit.  f DSGVO). The storage in the blacklist is not limited in time. You can object to the storage if your interests outweigh our legitimate interest.

Own services

Handling of applicant data

We offer you the opportunity to apply for a job with us (e.g. by e-mail, by post or via 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 will be in accordance with the applicable privacy laws and all other legal requirements and that your data will be 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 make a decision on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is § 26 BDSG-neu under German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 para. 1 lit.  b DSGVO (general contract initiation) and – if you have given your consent – Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. Consent can be revoked at any time. Within our company, your personal data will only be passed on to persons 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 BDSG-neu and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO for the purpose of carrying out the employment relationship.

Data retention period

If we are unable to offer you a job, if you reject a job offer or if we withdraw your application, we reserve the right  to keep the data you have submitted  with us for up to 6 months from the end of the application procedure (rejection or withdrawal of the application)on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 letter f DSGVO). Afterwards, the data will be deleted and the physical application documents destroyed. The storage serves in particular as evidence in the event of a legal dispute. If it is evident that the data will be required after the 6-month period has expired (e.g. due to an imminent or pending legal dispute), the data will only be deleted when the purpose for further storage no longer applies.

A longer storage period can also take place if you have given your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit.  a DSGVO) or if legal storage obligations prevent deletion.

Admission to the applicant pool

If we do not offer you a job, there may be the possibility to add you to our pool of applicants. If you are accepted, all documents and details from your application will be transferred to the applicant pool in order to contact you in case of suitable vacancies.

Admission to the applicant pool is based solely on your express consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). Your consent is voluntary and has no relation to the ongoing application procedure. The person concerned can revoke his/her consent at any time. In this case, the data will be irrevocably deleted from the pool of applicants, unless there are legal reasons for retention.

The data from the applicant pool will be irrevocably deleted no later than two years after consent has been granted.

Data collection, data storage

We process personal data that we receive from you in the course of our business relationship.

We process – as far as necessary for the provision of our services – personal data which we have permissibly received from other companies (e.g. for the execution of orders, for the fulfilment of contracts or on the basis of a consent given by you).

We process personal data that we have obtained from publicly accessible sources (e.g. press, media) and are permitted to process.

Relevant personal data are master data (name, address and other contact data, company, company address and other company contact data). Furthermore, this can also be order data (e.g. order data, product data), data from the fulfillment of our contractual obligations (e.g. sales), creditworthiness data, scoring/rating data, advertising and sales data (including advertising scores), documentation data (e.g. from documented conversations), data about your use of our offered tele media (e.g. calling up our newsletters) and other data comparable to the categories mentioned.

The data processing is carried out at your request and is required in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b DSGVO for the purposes mentioned for the appropriate processing of the order and for the mutual fulfilment of obligations arising from the contract.

The personal data collected by us for the fulfilment of the order will be stored until the expiry of the statutory storage obligation (up to 10 years after the end of the order) and deleted thereafter, unless we are obliged to store the data for a longer period of time in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 S. 1 lit.  c DSGVO due to storage and documentation obligations under tax and commercial law (from HGB, StGB or AO) or you   have consented to storage beyond this period in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

Data collection as part of the balancing of interests (Art. 6 para. 1 letter F DSGVO)

As far as necessary, we process your data beyond the actual fulfillment of the contract to protect legitimate interests of us or third parties, e.g.:

  • Data exchange with credit agencies (e.g. SCHUFA) to determine creditworthiness or default risks;
  • Testing and optimization of procedures for demand analysis and direct customer contact;
  • Advertising or market and opinion research, as long as they have not objected to the use of your data;
  • Assertion of legal claims and defense in legal disputes;
  • Ensuring the IT security and IT operation of our company;
  • Prevention and investigation of criminal offences;
  • Measures for building and plant security (e.g. access controls);
  • Measures to secure the right of domicile
  • Support in customer consulting and support and sales
  • General business management and further development of services, systems and products
  • Meeting internal requirements and the requirements of our affiliated companies,
  • Assertion of legal claims and defense in legal disputes
  • Prevention and investigation of crimes, risk management and fraud prevention

Our interest and that of the additional responsible persons in the respective processing results from the respective purposes and is otherwise of an economic nature (efficient performance of tasks, distribution, avoidance of legal risks). As far as the specific purpose allows, we and the additional responsible persons process your data pseudonymized or anonymized.

Based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 letter a DSGVO)

If you have given us your consent to process personal data for specific purposes (e.g. for sending newsletters), the legality of this processing is based on your consent. A given consent can be revoked at any time. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent that were given to us before 25 May 2018. Please note that the revocation is only effective for the future. Processing that took place before the revocation is not affected.

Due to legal requirements (Art. 6 para. 1 letter c DSGVO)

We are subject to various legal obligations, i.e. legal requirements (e.g. terrorist list regulations, money laundering law, tax laws), on the basis of which we must process personal data. The purposes of the processing include fraud and money laundering prevention, the fulfillment of tax law monitoring and reporting obligations, and the assessment and management of risks.

Use of the data

Within our company, your data will be passed on to those departments that require it to fulfil their contractual and legal obligations or to perform their respective tasks (e.g. sales and marketing).  In addition, the following entities may receive your data: contract processors employed by us (Art. 28 DSGVO), in particular in the field of IT services, logistics and printing services, who process your data for us in accordance with your instructions, public bodies and institutions in the event of a statutory or official obligation to do so, and our respective agents, employees, representatives, authorised representatives, auditors, service providers and any subsidiaries or group companies (and their respective agents, employees, consultants, representatives, authorised representatives).

Any disclosure of your personal data will only be made to the following recipients or categories of recipients:

Network operators, metering point operators and service providers for the supply and billing of the contract. This also applies to commercially sensitive information within the meaning of §60 EnWG. Credit institutions and providers of payment services for settlements and the processing of payments. Service providers for the operation of the IT infrastructure, for the printing of bills and subscriber/customer information letters, and for the destruction of files. Public bodies in justified cases (e.g. social insurance agencies, tax authorities, police, public prosecutor’s office, supervisory authorities). Credit agencies and scoring providers for credit reports and credit risk assessment. Debt collection service providers and lawyers to collect receivables, whereby we will inform you before the intended transfer.

Data storage

As far as necessary, we process and store your personal data for the duration of the business relationship, which also includes, for example, the initiation and execution of a contract. It should be noted that our business relationship is regularly a continuous obligation that is designed to last for years. In addition, we are subject to various storage and documentation obligations, which result from the German Commercial Code (HGB) or the German Fiscal Code (AO), among others. The periods of retention or documentation stipulated there range from two to ten years. Finally, the duration of storage is also assessed according to the statutory limitation periods, which, for example, according to §§ 195 ff. of the German Civil Code (BGB), are usually three years, but in certain cases can be up to thirty years.

Transfer of data to third parties

Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those listed below. Insofar as this is necessary for the processing of contractual relationships with you in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b DSGVO, your personal data will be forwarded to third parties. This includes, in particular, the transfer to the opposing party and their representatives (in particular their lawyers) as well as courts and other public authorities for the purpose of correspondence and for the assertion and defense of your rights. The data passed on may be used by the third party exclusively for the aforementioned purposes. Your data will only be transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area – EEA (third countries) if this is necessary or legally required to execute your orders or if you have given your consent.

Rights of data subjects

  • in accordance with Art. 7 Para. 3 DSGVO to revoke your once given consent to us at any time. As a result, we are not allowed to continue the data processing which was based on this consent in the future;

In particular, you may request information on the purposes of processing, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the planned storage period, the existence of a right of rectification, cancellation, restriction of processing or opposition, the existence of a right of appeal, the origin of your data, if not collected by us, as well as the existence of automated decision making including profiling  and, if applicable, meaningful information on the details of the same;

  • pursuant to Art. 18 DSGVO, to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data, if the accuracy of the data is disputed by you, if the processing is unlawful but you refuse to delete it and we no longer require the data, but you require it for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or if you have lodged an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO
  • in accordance with Art. 20 DSGVO, to receive your personal data that you have provided us with in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request that it be transferred to another responsible party and

We can also process your data for direct advertising within the framework of the legal provisions. You have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is connected with such direct advertising. If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes.
