We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of BGH Edelstahlwerke GmbH. The use of the internet pages of the BGH Edelstahlwerke GmbH is possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special services of our enterprise via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary.

The processing of personal data is in line with the General Data Protection Regulation. By means of this data protection declaration, our enterprise would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of their rights by means of this data protection declaration.

3. Cookies

The internet pages of BGH Edelstahlwerke GmbH use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored on a computer system via an internet browser.
Numerous Internet pages and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters by which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited Internet pages and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific internet browser can be recognised and identified via the unique cookie ID.
Through the use of cookies, the BGH Edelstahlwerke GmbH can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.
By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimised for the user. As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognise the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time using an internet browser or other software programmes. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.

4. Collection of general data and information

The website of the BGH Edelstahlwerke GmbH collects a series of general data and information every time a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The following data may be collected:

  1. the browser types and versions used
  2. the operating system used
  3. the website from which an accessing system arrives at our website (so-called referrer)
  4. the sub-websites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website
  5. the date and time of access to the website
  6. an internet protocol address (IP address)
  7. the Internet service provider of the accessing system
  8. other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using these general data and information, the BGH Edelstahlwerke GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is required in order to:

  1. to deliver the contents of our website correctly
  2. to optimise the content of our website and the advertising for it
  3. to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website
  4. to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack.

BGH Edelstahlwerke GmbH analyzes anonymously collected data and information on one hand for statistical purposes and on the other hand for the purpose of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and ultimately ensuring an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.

5. Contact option via the website

The website of the BGH Edelstahlwerke GmbH contains legal requirements which enable a quick electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or by using a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be stored automatically. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the controller will be stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data will not be disclosed to third parties.

6. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

The data controller shall process and store personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or where provided for by the European Directive and Regulation or other legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject. If the storage purpose ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation Maker or another competent legislator expires, the personal data shall be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

7. Rights of the data subject

In connection with the processing of your personal data, you have the following rights in particular:
a) Right to confirmation (Art. 15 GDPR)
b) Right of access (Art. 15 GDPR)
c) Right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR)
d) Right to erasure (right to be forgotten) (Art. 17 GDPR)
e) Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 DSG-VO)
f) Right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR)
g) Right to object (Art. 21 GDPR)
h) Right to lodge a complaint (Art. 15 DPA)
i) Right to withdraw consent under data protection law (Art. 7 DPA Regulation)

8. Data protection in applications and the application process

The data controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of managing the application procedure. The processing may also be carried out by electronic means. This is in particular the case when an applicant submits relevant application documents to the controller by electronic means, for example by e-mail or via a web form available on the website. If the controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents shall be deleted after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller conflict with such deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

9. Legal basis of the processing

Article 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves as the legal basis for our company for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which the processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47, sentence 2 of the GDPR).

10. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is the performance of our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

11. Duration for which the personal data are stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted if it is no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.

12. Legal or contractual requirements to provide the personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision

We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is sometimes required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes, in order to conclude a contract, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before providing personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact our data protection officer. Our data protection officer will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences of not providing the personal data would be.

13. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
