Privacy Statement

Data protection is the responsibility of WARGITSCH & COMP. AG and is a special concern. Our efforts in particular to meet the requirements of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Bundesdatenschutzgesetz in its new version are primarily aimed at respecting your privacy and personal sphere.

For modern companies like the WARGITSCH & COMP. AG, the use of electronic data processing systems (EDP) is indispensable. Of course, we will do our utmost to comply with the legal regulations.

 A use of the Internet pages of the WARGITSCH & COMP. AG is basically possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a person concerned wishes to make use of special services of our company via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned.

 Under no circumstances will we sell or rent your personal information to third parties for their marketing or other purposes. If you do not agree with the provisions of the data protection regulations, please do not send any personal data to us.

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right under the GDPR to object at any time, for reasons relating to his/her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him/her carried out pursuant to Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

In the event of objection, we will no longer process the personal data unless we can prove compelling grounds for processing worthy of protection which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the person concerned, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If we process personal data for the purpose of direct advertising, the data subject has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling as far as it is connected with such direct advertising.

In addition, the data subject shall have the right to object to the processing of personal data relating to him or her by us for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 (1) GDPR for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest.

In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may contact any employee directly.

If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to data transfer, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.

 

– Automated decision in individual cases including profiling

Any person data subject to the processing of personal data shall have the right under the GDPR not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which has legal effects on him or her or significantly affects him or her in a similar manner, provided that the decision

       (1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller, or

       (2) is authorized by Union or national legislation to which the data controller is subject and contains appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and the legitimate interests of the data subject, or

       (3) with the express consent of the data subject.

The aforementioned evaluations are being conducted based on Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 Letter F DSGVO. Using this analysis software, we are able to optimize and continuously improve the user experience. We also use the gathered data to gain statistical insight in the use of our website and to enhance our services in order to make them more user friendly. These interests are considered legitimate in terms of the earlier mentioned prescription. Data-matching, especially using individual-related data, will not be performed. The gathered and generated information will only be stored at our hosting provider in Germany. None of this data will be shared with third parties.

5. Further functions and offers of our website

(1) In addition to the purely informational use of our website, we offer various services that you can use if you are interested. For this purpose, you must generally provide further personal data which we use to provide the respective service and to which the aforementioned data processing principles apply.

(2) In some cases, we use external service providers to process your data. These have been carefully selected and commissioned by us, are bound by our instructions and are checked regularly.

(3) The hosting services used by us serve to provide the following services: Infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services, security services and technical maintenance services which we use for the purpose of operating this online service.

(4) Furthermore, we may pass on your personal data to third parties if we offer participation in promotions, competitions, contracts or similar services together with partners. You will receive further information on this when you enter your personal data or in the description of the offer below.

(5) If our service providers or partners are based in a country outside the European Economic Area (EEA), we will inform you about the consequences of this circumstance in the description of the offer.

6. Data protection for applications

The data controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits the relevant application documents electronically, for example by e-mail or via a contact form on the website, to the controller. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted shall be stored for the purpose of processing the employment contract in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the candidate, the application documents shall be automatically deleted, unless deletion conflicts with any other legitimate interests of the controller. Other legitimate interests in this sense include, for example, the duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz – AGG).

The processing of the applicant data is carried out to fulfil our (pre)contractual obligations within the scope of the application procedure within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. GDPR Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR insofar as data processing becomes necessary for us, e.g. within the framework of legal proceedings (in Germany, § 26 BDSG additionally applies).

7. Objection or revocation against the processing of your data

(1) If you have given your consent to the processing of your data, you can revoke it at any time and by any means of communication. Such a revocation influences the permissibility of processing your personal data after you have given it to us.

(2) Insofar as we base the processing of your personal data on a weighing of interests, you may object to the processing. This is the case if the processing is in particular not necessary for the fulfilment of a contract with you, which is described by us in the following description of the functions. In the event of such an objection, we ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we have done. In the event of your justified objection, we will examine the situation and either discontinue or adapt the data processing or point out our compelling reasons worthy of protection on the basis of which we will continue the processing.

(3) You may of course object to the processing of your personal data for advertising and data analysis purposes at any time. You can contact us about your advertising objection at the address given in section 2 (2).

 

8. Statutory or contractual provisions governing the provision of personal data/ necessity for the conclusion of a contract/ consequences of nonprovision/deletion

(1) We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law. However, it is also possible that a data subject may be required to provide us with personal information in order for a contract to be performed. Failure to do so would result in the contract not being able to be concluded. Our employees will be happy to answer any questions you may have on a case-by-case basis. 

(2) The data processed by us will be deleted or their processing restricted in accordance with Art. 17 and 18 GDPR. Unless expressly stated in this data protection declaration, the data stored by us will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for their intended purpose and there are no legal obligations to retain them. If the data are not deleted because they are required for other and legally permissible purposes, their processing will be restricted. This means that the data will be blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be stored for commercial or tax reasons.

According to legal requirements, the data is stored in particular for 10 years in accordance with §§ 147 para. 1 AO, 257 para. 1 nos. 1 and 4, para. 4 HGB (German Commercial Code) (books, records, management reports, accounting records, commercial books, documents relevant for taxation, etc.) and 6 years in accordance with § 257 para. 1 nos. 2 and 3, para. 4 HGB (German Commercial Code) (commercial letters).
