The protection of your personal data during the collection, processing and use when visiting our homepage is an important concern for us. We will explain what happens with your data as follows:

1. Collection and processing of data

You can visit our Internet presence without providing any details about yourself. We only store access data without personal reference, such as the name of your Internet service provider, the page from which you are visiting us, or the name of the requested file. These data are evaluated solely for the purpose of improving our offers and do not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person, they are anonymised.

We will collect, process and use the personal data you have provided online only for the purposes requested by yourself; unless the collection, processing and use is carried out on the basis of a legal obligation or an administrative/judicial order, in order to justify or protect legal claims or to defend against illegal activities or for a purpose which is directly related to the original purpose to which the personal data were collected.

We will neither sell or market your personal data to third parties nor pass them on for any other reason. "Third parties" in this sense are not the companies of the Silbitz Group. Furthermore, we may pass on personal data to other companies of the Silbitz Group's international network if this is necessary to achieve the purpose for which you have made the data available to us (e.g., for responding to, or the processing of inquiries or orders, applications, etc.).

Personal data which you voluntarily transfer to us within the framework of the use of free offers may consecutively be used for own advertising purposes.

 

2. Your contact information sent to us via the contact form

a. via the contact form
 
To the extent you use the contact form made available on our internet presence and provide us with personal data, this data will be stored and processed by us internally to process your inquiry. We also do not perform any comparison of the collected data with data, which is possibly collected by other components of our internet presence. Your data will not be passed on to third parties.
 
b. as an application

By submitting your application documents, you expressly agree that we may collect, process and use the data submitted by you to us for the purposes of application processing pursuant to § 32 of the German Data Protection Act (BDSG). If your application involves the conclusion of an employment contract, we may store the data you submitted to us in your personal file for the purpose of the standard organisational and administrative processes, in compliance with the relevant legal regulations.

We will perform the deletion of the data which you have submitted to us in electronic form if your job application is rejected and after notification of the rejection. This does not apply if a longer-term storage is necessary due to legal requirements (for example, the burden of proof, pursuant to the General Equality Treatment Act - AGG) or if you have expressly consented to a longer period of retention in our pool of potential candidates.

We would like to draw your attention to the fact that applications, in particular CVs, testimonials and other data sent by yourself to us, may contain particularly sensitive information regarding mental and physical health, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical convictions, membership in a trade union or political party.

Additionally, you are entitled to amend incorrect data, blockage for commercial use or deletion of such data, statutory storage obligations or other legal provisions opposing the application. The consent to the processing of the data you submitted to us can be revoked at any time with effect for the future, in writing, without any specific format, via an e-mail to datenschutz[at]silbitz-goup.de.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP-address be transferred to a Google-server in the US and be abbreviated there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of our website, compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services related to the use of the website and the internet for the website operator´s use. The IP address provided by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

At the time of implementation of the links, the linked pages were checked for possible legal violations. No illegal contents were detectable at the time of linking.
