2 General notes and mandatory information
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 statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
NOTE ON THE RESPONSIBLE OFFICE
The responsible party for data processing on this website is:
SECO Sensor Consult GmbH
Dipl.-Phys. Eugen Gergert
At the Bleichanger 1
Phone: 0049 (0)9561 869 141
The controller is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses or similar).
REVOCATION OF YOUR CONSENT TO DATA PROCESSING.
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
RIGHT OF COMPLAINT TO THE COMPETENT SUPERVISORY AUTHORITY
In the event of violations of data protection law, the data subject has a right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority in matters of data protection law is the state data protection commissioner of the federal state in which our company is based. A list of data protection officers and their contact details can be found at the following link: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.
SSL OR TLS ENCRYPTION
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize 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
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data. For this purpose, as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint.
OBJECTION TO ADVERTISING E-MAILS
We hereby object to the use of contact data published within the framework of the imprint obligation for the purpose of sending advertising and information material that has not been expressly requested. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as spam e-mails.
3. data collection on our website
The Internet pages partly use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer 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 after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser on your next visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies 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 cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be limited.
Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions that you have requested (e.g. shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies for the analysis of your surfing behavior) are stored, these are treated separately in this data protection declaration.
SERVER LOG FILES
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
– browser type and browser version
– operating system used
– Reffer URL
– host of the accessing computer
– Time of the server request
– IP address
This data is not merged with other data sources.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
If you send us inquiries via contact form, your data from the inquiry form, including the contact data you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do 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 DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you entered in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
4. plugins and tools
Our website uses plugins from the YouTube site operated by Google. The operator of the pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
When you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited.
If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
YouTube is used in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
GOOGLE WEB FONTS (local hosting).
This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. The Google Fonts are installed locally. A connection to Google servers does not take place.
This site uses the map service Google Maps via an API. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
To use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to store your IP address. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transmission.
The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers and an easy location of the places indicated by us on the website. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
5. data protection statement on the application process of SECO Sensor Consult GmbH.
In accordance with the requirements of Articles 13, 14 and 21 of the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), we hereby inform you about the processing of personal data submitted by you as part of the application process and, if applicable, collected by us, and your rights in this regard. To ensure that you are fully informed about the processing of your personal data as part of the application process, please take note of the information below.
We process your personal data in accordance with the provisions of the European Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) and the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), insofar as this is necessary for the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship with us. The legal basis for this is Article 88 DSGVO in conjunction with Section 26 BDSG-neu and, if applicable, Article 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO for the initiation or implementation of contractual relationships. Furthermore, we may process personal data from you if this is necessary for the fulfillment of legal obligations (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO) or for the defense of asserted legal claims against us. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. The legitimate interest is, for example, a duty of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG). If you give us express consent to process personal data for specific purposes, the lawfulness of this processing is based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO. Consent given can be revoked at any time, with effect for the future.
If your application documents contain special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 (1) DSGVO, we will process these within the scope of the application procedure for the exercise of rights or the fulfillment of obligations arising from labor law, social security law and social protection. The legal basis in this respect is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c DSGVO in conjunction with. Art. 9 para. 2 lit. b DSGVO and Section 26 para. 3 BDSG.
If an employment relationship arises between you and us, we may, in accordance with Art. 88 DSGVO in conjunction with § 26 BDSG-neu, continue to process the personal data already received from you for the purposes of the employment relationship, insofar as this is necessary for the implementation or termination of the employment relationship or for the exercise or fulfillment of the rights and obligations of the employee representation resulting from a law or a collective agreement, a company or service agreement (collective agreement).
After termination of the employment relationship, those personal data will continue to be stored that we are legally obligated to retain. This regularly results from legal obligations to provide evidence and to retain data, which are regulated, among other things, in the German Commercial Code and the German Fiscal Code. The storage periods are then up to ten years. In addition, personal data may be retained for the period during which claims can be asserted against us (statutory limitation period of three or up to thirty years).
In the event of rejection, your application documents will be deleted no later than six months after completion of the application process, unless you have given us permission to retain them for a longer period (applicant pool).
We only process data that is related to your application. This may be general personal data (name, address, contact details, etc.), information on your professional qualifications and school education, information on further professional training and, if applicable, other data that you provide to us in connection with your application.
We process personal data that we receive from you by mail, e-mail or verbally in the context of contacting you or your application, or that you transmit to us via our website or any landing pages.
We disclose your personal data within our company exclusively to those areas and persons who need this data to fulfill contractual and legal obligations or to implement our legitimate interest.
We may transfer your personal data to companies affiliated with us, insofar as this is permissible within the framework of the purposes and legal bases set out in section 7 of this data protection statement.
Your personal data is processed on our behalf on the basis of order processing contracts pursuant to Art. 28 DSGVO. In these cases, we ensure that the processing of personal data is carried out in accordance with the provisions of the DSGVO. The categories of recipients in this case are providers of internet services as well as providers of HR services and applicant management systems and software.
The following processors have been engaged by us as part of the application process:
Otherwise, data is only forwarded to recipients outside SECO Sensor Consult GmbH or the order processors listed here if this is permitted or required by legal provisions, the forwarding is necessary to fulfill legal obligations or we have your consent.
For the provision of their services, our order processors exclusively use servers that are located within the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany and operate in accordance with German law. Data transfer of applicant data to a third country does not take place.
If no suitable position can be offered to you at the time of your application, it is possible that the data you provided or transmitted throughout the application process may be collected, processed and used in the Talent Pool even after it has been completed. This is done in order to make contact for professional purposes and for possible consideration in the event of a subsequent job offer. You agree to this use separately.
In addition to the above data protection statement, please also take note of the additional information on the online platforms we use.
SECO Sensor Consult GmbH uses the technical platform and services of Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland for the information service offered.
We would like to point out that you use the Facebook page and its functions on your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the interactive functions (for example, commenting, sharing, rating). Facebook processes personal data about your account, your IP address as well as about the end devices you use; cookies are used for data collection. These are small files that are stored on your end devices. Facebook describes in general terms what information it receives and how it is used in its data usage guidelines. There you will also find information on how to contact Facebook, how to object, and how to adjust the settings for advertisements. The data usage guidelines are available at the following link: http://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy Facebook’s complete data guidelines can be found here: https://de-de.facebook.com/full_data_use_policy.
The information may be used by Facebook to provide us, as operators of the Facebook pages, with statistical information such as gender and age distribution about the use of the Facebook page. In addition, Facebook may display further information or advertisements to you according to your preferences. Facebook provides more detailed information on this at the following link: http://de-de.facebook.com/help/pages/insights.
The data collected about you in this context is processed by Facebook Ltd. and may be transferred to countries outside the European Union.
If you visit one of our presences in the social media (e.g. Facebook), you trigger a processing of your personal data during such a visit. In this case, we are jointly responsible with the operator of the respective social network for the data processing operations within the meaning of Art. 26 DSGVO, provided that we actually make a joint decision with the operator of the social network about the data processing and we also have an influence on the data processing. As far as possible, we have concluded joint responsibility agreements with the operators of the social networks pursuant to Art. Art. 26 DSGVO, so in particular the Page Controller Addendums of Facebook Ireland Ltd. Your rights (right to information pursuant to Art. 15 DSGVO, right to rectification pursuant to Art. 16 DSGVO, right to erasure pursuant to Art. 17 DSGVO, right to restriction of processing pursuant to Art. 18 DSGVO, right to data portability pursuant to Art. 20 DSGVO and right to lodge a complaint pursuant to Art. 77 DSGVO ) can in principle be asserted both against us and against the operator of the respective social network (e.g. Facebook).
Please note that despite the joint responsibility pursuant to Art. 26 DSGVO with the operators of social networks, we have no full influence on the data processing of the individual social networks. The corporate policy of the respective provider has a significant influence on our options. In the event of the assertion of data subject rights, we could only forward these requests to the operator of the social network.
In what way Facebook uses data from visits to Facebook pages for its own purposes, to what extent activities on the Facebook page are assigned to individual users, how long Facebook stores this data and whether data from a visit to the Facebook page is passed on to third parties, is not conclusively and clearly stated by Facebook and is not known to us.
When you access a Facebook page, the IP address assigned to your terminal device is transmitted to Facebook. According to Facebook, this IP address is anonymized (for “German” IP addresses) and deleted after 90 days. Facebook also stores information about the end devices of its users (for example, as part of the “login notification” function); this may allow Facebook to assign IP addresses to individual users.
If you are currently logged in to Facebook as a user, a cookie with your Facebook ID is located on your end device. This enables Facebook to track that you have visited this page and how you have used it. This also applies to all other Facebook pages. Via Facebook buttons embedded in websites, it is possible for Facebook to record your visits to these website pages and assign them to your Facebook profile. Based on this data, content or advertising can be offered tailored to you.
If you want to avoid this, you should log out of Facebook or deactivate the “stay logged in” function, delete the cookies present on your device and exit and restart your browser. In this way, Facebook information through which you can be directly identified will be deleted. This will allow you to use our Facebook page without revealing your Facebook identifier. When you access interactive features of the page (like, comment, share, message, etc.), a Facebook login screen will appear. After any login, you will again be recognizable to Facebook as a specific user. Alternatively, you can use a different browser than usual to visit our Facebook page.
Information on how to manage or delete information about you can be found on the following Facebook support pages: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy.
We, as the provider of the information service, do not collect or process any data from your use of our service beyond this. You can find this data privacy statement in its current version under the item “Data policy” on our Facebook page.

We have integrated YouTube videos into our online offer, which are stored on http://www.YouTube.com and can be played directly from our website. In principle, when you call up a page with embedded videos, your IP address is sent to YouTube or Google and cookies are installed on your computer. However, we have embedded our videos in “extended data protection mode”, i.e. no data about you as a user will be transmitted to YouTube or Google if you do not play the videos. Only when you click on the video to play it, the following data will be transmitted:
– IP address
– Date and time of the request
– Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
– Content of the request (specific page)
– Access status/HTTP status code
– Amount of data transferred in each case
– Website from which the request comes
– Operating system and its interface
– Language and version of the browser software.
– Hardware used (PC, smartphone, etc.)
– Location (if Google Maps is activated)
We have no influence on this data transmission.

If you are logged in to Google, this data is directly assigned to your account. If you do not want the assignment with your profile at YouTube, you must log out before activating the button. In addition, YouTube/Google also stores data if you do not have a Google user account, these are in particular: IP address, search queries, browser and operating system version.
YouTube/Google stores the aforementioned data as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in or users without a corresponding account) to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.

As a matter of principle, LinkedIn is solely responsible for the processing of personal data when you visit our LinkedIn page. For more information about the processing of personal data by LinkedIn, please visit https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy?trk=homepage-basic_footer-privacy-policy.
When you visit, follow or engage with our LinkedIn company page, LinkedIn processes personal data to provide us with anonymized statistics and insights. This provides us with insights into the types of actions that people take on our site (so-called page insights).

In addition, LinkedIn will process information about how you interact with our LinkedIn company page, such as whether you are a follower of our LinkedIn company page. With the page insights, LinkedIn does not provide us with any personal data about you. We only have access to the aggregated Page Insights. It is also not possible for us to draw conclusions about individual members via the information in the Page Insights. This processing of personal data in the context of Page Insights is carried out by LinkedIn and us as joint controllers. The processing serves the performance of a public task. The evaluation of the types of actions taken on our LinkedIn company page serves in the context of public relations to improve our company page based on these insights. The legal basis for this processing is Article 6 (1) (e) DSGVO. We have entered into a joint controller agreement with LinkedIn, which sets out the distribution of data protection obligations between us and LinkedIn. The agreement is available at: https://legal.linkedin.com/pages-joint-controller-addendum.
