You have the right to receive information free of charge at any time about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data.

You can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice for this purpose and for further questions on the subject of data protection. Furthermore, you have a right of appeal to the responsible supervisory authority.

You also have the right, under certain circumstances, to request a restriction on the processing of your personal data. For details, please refer to the privacy policy under "Right to restrict processing".

The analysis of your surfing behaviour is usually anonymous; your surfing behaviour cannot be traced back to you. You can object to this analysis or prevent it by not using certain tools. You will find detailed information on this in the following privacy policy.

2. General notes and compulsory information
Data protection
The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the legal data protection regulations and this privacy policy.

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

We would like to point out that data transmission via the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) may have security gaps. It is not possible to fully protect data against access by third parties.

E-mail: dsb@wienkaemper.com

Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing transactions are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke any consent already given 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 up to the time of revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right to object to data collection in certain cases and to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)
If data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 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 legal basis on which processing is based can be found in this privacy policy. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can give compelling legitimate reasons for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and liberties, or unless the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims (objection pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR).

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

Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In the case of infringements 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 infringement. This right of appeal is without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.

Right to data transferability
You have the right to have data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contact delivered 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 party, this will only take place to the extent that it is technically feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. 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 scope 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, a right to correct, block or delete this data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice for this purpose and for further questions on the subject of personal data.

Right to restrict processing
You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data is restricted. To do so, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice. The right to restrict processing is given 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 review, you have the right to request that we limit the processing of your personal data.
If the processing of your personal data was/is unlawful, you can request the restriction of the data processing instead of deletion thereof.
If we no longer need your personal data but you do need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion thereof.
If you have filed an objection pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR, a weighing up of your interests and ours must be conducted. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests outweigh the others, you have the right to demand that the processing of your personal data is restricted.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, such data – unless for storage purposes – 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.

Objection to advertising e-mails
We hereby object to the use of the contact data published within the scope of the legal notice obligation for the purpose of sending unsolicited advertising and information material.
The operators of the website expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of being sent unsolicited advertising information, e.g. via spam e-mails.

3. Data collection on our website
Cookies
Some of the web pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve the purpose of making our offer more user-friendly, 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 after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit.

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

Cookies, which are necessary for the electronic communication process or for the provision of certain functions you require (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 their services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysing your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are dealt with separately in this privacy policy.

Server log files
The provider of the website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

Browser type and version
Operating system used
Referrer URL
Host name of the accessing computer
Time of the server request
IP address
This data is not merged with other data sources.

This data is collected on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimisation of their website – for this purpose the server log files must be recorded.

Contact form
If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact data you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event 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 thus exclusively based 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 operations carried out up to the time of revocation 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 to its storage or the purpose for which it was stored ceases to apply (e.g. after your enquiry has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

Enquiry by e-mail, telephone or fax
If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your enquiry including all personal data resulting therefrom (name, enquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. 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 insofar as your request 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 requests made to us.

The data you send to us via contact requests will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to its storage or the purpose for which the data was stored ceases to apply (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.

4. Internal services
Applications
We offer you the opportunity to apply for a job with us (e.g. by e-mail, post or via our 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 data protection 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 a job 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 Section 26 of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG as amended 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. Consent may be revoked at any time. Within our company your personal data will only be passed on 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 Section 26 of the Federal Data Protection Act as amended and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR 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, withdraw your application, revoke your consent to data processing or request us to delete the data, the data you have submitted, including any remaining physical application documents, will be stored or retained for a maximum of 6 months following 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 SUCH STORAGE PROVIDED THAT THERE ARE LEGITIMATE INTERESTS ON YOUR PART WHICH OUTWEIGH OUR INTERESTS.

After the retention period has expired, the data will be deleted unless there is a legal retention obligation or any other legal reason for further storage. If it is evident that the storage of your data will be necessary after expiry of the retention period (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), the data will only be deleted when it has become irrelevant. Other statutory storage obligations remain unaffected.

Our social media appearances
Data processing via social networks
We maintain publicly accessible profiles in social networks. The social networks we use in detail can be found below.

Social networks such as Facebook, Google+ etc. can as a rule analyse your user behaviour comprehensively when you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. like buttons or advertising banners). Visiting our social media sites triggers numerous data protection-relevant processing procedures. In detail:

If you are logged in to your social media account and visit our social media site, the operator of the social media portal can assign this visit to your user account. However, under certain circumstances, your personal data may also be collected if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portal. In this case, this data is collected, for example, via cookies that are stored on your end device or by collecting your IP address.

With the help of the data collected in this way, the operators of social media portals can create user profiles in which your preferences and interests are stored. In this way, interest-related advertising can be displayed to you both inside and outside of the respective social media presence. If you have an account with the respective social network, interest-based advertising can be displayed on all devices on which you are or were logged in.

Please also note that we are not able to retrace all processing transactions on the social media portals. Depending on the provider, further processing may therefore be carried out by the operators of the social media portals. For details, please refer to the terms of use and data protection regulations of the respective social media portals.

Legal basis

Our social media sites are designed to ensure the widest possible presence on the Internet. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The analysis processes initiated by the social networks may be based on different legal bases, which have to be specified by the operators of the social networks (e.g. consent within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 letter a GDPR).

Responsible party and assertion of rights

If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g. Facebook), we are jointly responsible with the operator of the social media platform for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. You can assert your rights (information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data transferability and complaints) both against us and against the operator of the respective social media portal (e.g. against Facebook).

Please note that despite the joint responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have full influence on the data processing procedures of the social media portals. Our possibilities are largely determined by the corporate policy of the respective provider.

Storage duration

The data collected directly by us via the social media site will be deleted from our systems as soon as the purpose for storing it no longer applies, you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies. Stored cookies remain on your end device until you delete them. Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

We have no influence on the storage period of your data, which is stored by the operators of social networks for their own purposes. For details, please contact the social network operators directly (e.g. in their privacy policy, see below).
