B. General information

1. SCOPE OF THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA

We gather and use the personal data of our users generally only to the extent that this is required for providing a functional website, and our contents and services. Should this not be the case, personal data will normally only be used with the user’s consent. An exception applies for practical reasons in cases where it is not possible to obtain prior consent and the processing of the data is permitted under legal regulations.

 

2. LEGAL BASES FOR THE PROCESSING

If we obtain a consent declaration from the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 (1) lit. a) EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies as the legal basis.

For the processing of personal data that is required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) lit. b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing that is required to take steps prior to entering into a contract. Where processing of personal data serves the purpose of fulfilling a legal obligation incumbent our company, the legal basis is Art. 6 (1), lit. c) GDPR.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person necessitate the processing of personal data, Art. 6 (1) lit. d) GDPR applies as the legal basis. If the processing serves the purpose of protecting a legitimate interest of our company or that of a third party, and provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the interest mentioned first, Art. 6 (1), lit. f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing. It is our company’s legitimate interest to operate our business.

 

3. ROUTINE DELETION AND BLOCKING OF PERSONAL DATA

We process and store personal data of the data subject only for as long as this is required for the purpose for which it is stored. Data can also be stored beyond this point if this is stipulated by the European or national legislatures in directives, laws, and other regulations under EU law which apply to the Controller. As soon as the purpose of the storage ceases to apply or the storage period prescribed by the mentioned regulations ends, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted.

 

4. SECURITY OF YOUR DATA

We use the common SSL procedure (Secure Socket Layer) during the website visit, in combination with the respectively highest encryption level that your browser supports. This is commonly a 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support a 256-bit encryption, we will use the 128-bit v3 technology instead. You can tell if an individual page of our online appearance is transmitted in encrypted form by whether the key or lock symbol shown in the lower status bar of your browser is closed.

We furthermore use suitable technical and organisational security measures to protect your data from accidental or deliberate manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. Our security measures are being improved continuously according to technological progress.

C. Usage data

1. LOG FILES

On every retrieval of the website, we or the page provider gather data and information by means of an automated system. This data and information is stored in the log files of the server.

The following data can be gathered in this process.:

Information on the browser type and the version used
The user’s operating system
The user’s internet service provider
The user’s IP address
Date and time of the access
Webpages from which the user’s system has been directed to our website (referrer)
Webpages that are accessed by the user's system via our website
The data is processed for the purpose of delivering the contents of our webpage, assuring the functionality of our IT systems, and optimising our webpage. The log file data meanwhile is always stored separately from other personal data of the users.

 

2. COOKIES

Our pages use so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored in your web browser’s cache (so-called session cookies) for the duration of your browser session or for a certain period on your hard drive (so-called permanent cookies). The cookies enable that your web browser is recognised again, so that you can access contents more quickly and systematically, and that contents can be provided customised to your needs and preferences when you visit our website again in the future. For the purpose of our legitimate interest in providing the website, we therefore use technically necessary cookies to be able to offer the website customised to the visitors’ preferences. The cookies do not store any personal data.

If, besides the technically necessary cookies, we also want to use marketing, tracking or analysis cookies, your prior explicit consent is required. We ask for your consent, as soon as you start using the website, in the cookie banner appearing on our website, which informs you about our cookie policy and gives you selectable options to refuse or give your consent to all or certain kinds of cookies.

If you give us your consent, the legal basis for the processing of personal data is Art. 6 (1) lit. a) GDPR.

You can change your cookie settings or revoke the granted consent via the cookie banner.

The data processed by essential cookies is required for the purposes of protecting our and third parties’ legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sent. 1, lit. f) GDPR.

In addition, cookies by Google Analytics and Google Maps will be set on our website if you have given your consent. Please read more about this in the corresponding sections.

 

3. HOW CAN I PREVENT COOKIES FROM BEING STORED?

You can set your browser so that the storing of cookies is accepted only if you consent to this. You can delete any cookies that are still present. If you deactivate cookies, however, the functionality of webpages might be limited. You can find useful tips on how cookies can be deactivated in this wikihow.com.

 

4. USE OF GOOGLE ANALYTICS

For the purpose of a design as appropriate to need and for the continuous optimisation of our webpages, we use Google Analytics. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, 4 Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

The information generated by the cookie about the use of the website by you is usually transmitted to a server of Google in the USA and stored there. We use IP anonymisation on our website, which truncates your IP address beforehand, within the Member States of the European Union or in other signatory states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The complete IP address will only be transmitted in exceptional cases to a server of Google in the USA and truncated there.

Google uses this information to analyse your anonymised use of the website and to compile reports about website activities. The reports generated by Google Analytics are used to analyse the performance of our website and the success of our marketing campaigns.

We have no influence over this data transmission. This and the fact that the data is transmitted to the USA is problematic for reasons of data protection.

You can prevent the storing of cookies by means of corresponding settings in your browser software. In addition, you can prevent the data, which is generated by the cookie and which relates to your use of the website, from being gathered by and transmitted to Google, and from being processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link:

We do not pass on the information that is gathered by the cookie about the use of this website to any third parties.

Your explicit consent is required for the use of Google (Universal) Analytics. You receive the option to refuse or give your consent via the cookie banner in the beginning of your use process and to inform yourself about our company’s data protection rules.

If you give us your consent, the legal basis for the processing of personal data is Art. 6 (1) lit. a) GDPR. You can revoke consents once given at any time and without a statement of reasons. To do so, you can change your cookie settings via the cookie banner and revoke the granted consent.

 

5. USE OF GOOGLE MAPS

We use the offer of Google Maps on this website. It lets us display interactive maps directly on the website and allow you to use the convenient map feature. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, 4 Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you have accessed the relevant subpage of our website. The data named under Section 4 of this Data Privacy Policy is transmitted in addition. This is done regardless of whether Google provides a user account where you are logged in or if you do not have a user account at all. If you are logged in with Google, your data will be attributed directly to your account. If you do not want the attribution to your profile at Google, you need to log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as a usage profile and uses it for the purpose of marketing, market research, and/or design as appropriate to need of its website. Such an analysis is done in particular (even of users who are not logged in) in order to provide personalised advertising and inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right to object to the creation of these usage profiles, but you need to exercise it in relation to Google.

We have no influence over this data transmission. This and the fact that the data is transmitted to the USA is problematic for reasons of data protection. You have the option to easily deactivate the Google Maps service and thereby prevent the data transfer to Google: For this, deactivate JavaScript in your browser. We point out, however, that you might then not be able to use the map display.

Your explicit consent is required for the use of Google Maps. You receive the option to refuse or give your consent via the cookie banner in the beginning of your use process and to inform yourself about our company’s data protection rules.

If you give us your consent, the legal basis for the processing of personal data is Art. 6 (1) lit. a) GDPR.

You can revoke consents once given at any time and without a statement of reasons. To do so, you can change your cookie settings via the cookie banner and revoke the granted consent.

You can find more information about the handling of user data in Google’s data privacy policy at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

 

6. USE OF FACEBOOK INSIGHTS

Facebook uses its service “Facebook Insights” on our Facebook pages. If you grant your consent to the tracking on our website by opt-in, your data will be gathered for our Facebook fan page. You can claim your rights as a data subject against Facebook Ireland and Robert C. Spies KG. In accordance with the GDPR, Facebook has the primary responsibility for the processing of the Insights data. Facebook fulfils all duties under the GDPR relating to the processing of Insights data and makes the essential content of the Page Insights add-on available to the data subjects. Robert C. Spies KG does not make any decisions regarding the processing of Insights data and the further information according to Art. 13 GDPR, including the legal basis, identity of the controller, and storage period for cookies on user end devices. You can find more information about the Page Insights add-ons with regard to the people responsible at Facebook via this link:

You can revoke consents once given at any time and without a statement of reasons. To do so, you can change your cookie settings via the cookie banner and revoke the granted consent.

 

7. SOCIAL PLUG-INS OF SOCIAL NETWORKS

We use social plug-ins on our website to make our company more popular via social media. The promotional purpose behind this is regarded as consistent with the GDPR and it is therefore based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR. If a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing takes place exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. a) GDPR); the consent can be revoked at any time.

You can recognise the linking by the relevant logo. If you click on it, you will be forwarded to our appearance on the relevant network.

To protect your data in the best possible way, the buttons are embedded in our page so that they will be activated only when clicking on the respective network’s logo button. Only upon activation by clicking the logo button will a connection with the servers of the relevant network be established. Therefore, no data will be transmitted yet solely by accessing and visiting the page.

The IP address will never be linked with other data relating to the user. The IP addresses are anonymised so that an attribution is not possible (IP masking).

a) Facebook

Plug-ins of the social network Facebook of the provider Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland, are integrated on our pages. The Facebook plug-ins can be interactive elements or contents (e.g., videos, graphics or text contributions) and you can recognise them by the Facebook logos (white “f” on blue tile, the words “like”, “I like” or a “thumbs-up” symbol) or they are marked by the additional text “Facebook social plug-in.” The list and appearance of the Facebook social plug-ins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.  

By activating a button on our website, the plug-in establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. Facebook thereby receives the information that you have visited our page from your IP address. When you click the Facebook “like” button or leave a comment while you are logged into your Facebook account, you can link the contents of our pages to you Facebook profile.

This way, Facebook can attribute the visit on our website to your user account. At the same time, the processed data can be used to create usage profiles of the users. If a user is a Facebook member and does not want that Facebook to gather data about him or her via this online offer and does not want Facebook to link the data to his or her member data stored at Facebook, the user must log out of Facebook and delete his or her cookies before using our online offer.

If you do not want Facebook to be able to attribute the visit to this website to your Facebook user account, please log out of your Facebook user account.

We point out that we, as the operator of this website, do not obtain knowledge of the content of transmitted data nor of its use by Facebook. This and the fact that the data is regularly transmitted to the USA is problematic for reasons of data protection.

You can find details on the purpose and scope of the data gathering, the further processing, and use of the data by Facebook, as well as the rights in this regard and optional settings for the protection of privacy in Facebook’s data privacy policies at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.  

b) Instagram

Our website also uses so-called social plug-ins (“Plug-ins”) of Instagram, which is operated by Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Instagram”). The Plug-ins are marked by an Instagram logo, for example, in the form of an “Instagram camera.”

When you call up a page of our internet appearance that contains such a Plug-in and click on the logo, your browser will establish a direct connection with the servers of Instagram. The content of the Plug-in is transmitted by Instagram directly to your browser where it integrates it on the page. By this integration, Instagram receives the information that your browser has accessed a corresponding page of our internet appearance, even if you do not have an Instagram profile or if you are presently not logged into Instagram. This information (including your IP address) will be transmitted directly by your browser to a server of Instagram in the USA where it will be stored. If you are logged in on Instagram, Instagram can directly attribute the visit to our website to your Instagram account. The information will furthermore be published on your Instagram account and displayed there to your contacts. If you do not want Instagram to be able to attribute the data gathered via our internet appearance directly to your Instagram account, you have to log out of Instagram before your visit to our website.

We point out that we, as the provider of the pages, do not obtain knowledge of the content of transmitted data nor of its use by Instagram. This and the fact that the data is regularly transmitted to the USA is problematic for reasons of data protection.

You can find more information about this in Instagram’s data privacy policy (https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388).

D. Your personal data (master data)

1. WHAT IS “PERSONAL DATA"?

Personal data is information about your person that permits identifying you personally or data that relates directly or indirectly to you personally, e.g., your name, address or phone number. Information that cannot be traced back to any particular or identifiable person is not personal data.

 

2. USE OF THE CONTACT FORM

When you click the mail button, the window of your email program (e.g., Outlook) will open with our email address already entered in the address line. If you send us an email, we will receive from you at least your email address and further personal details you have provided voluntarily (e.g., last name, first name, address). We make the contact button available for the purpose of our legitimate interest, as this gives us more options to get in touch with you. Alternatively, it is possible to contact us at the provided phone numbers. If the data subject contacts the controllers who are responsible for the processing via one of these channels, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be stored automatically. The storage solely serves the purpose of processing or establishing contact with the data subject. No data will be transferred to third parties.

 

3. USE OF THE JOB APPLICATION FORM

Our website offers the opportunity to apply for job openings or also submit an unsolicited application, and upload and transmit attachments (files) to us for this purpose. This provides you with the opportunity to apply online to currently published job openings of Robert C. Spies KG or one of its affiliates.

In the alternative, you can also send us your job application in writing by post. The storage of the gathered data exclusively serves for implementing the application process. The data is only transmitted to third parties within the limits described under Section 5.

The processing takes place in automated procedures.
When exercising this right, you furthermore have the right to the personal data relating to you being transmitted directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. The rights and freedoms of others must not be impaired by this.

The right to data portability does not apply if the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

g) Right to object

You have the right to object, at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of your personal data taking place on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. e) or lit. f) GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

Spies KG will then cease the processing of your personal data, unless it can prove compelling reasons for the processing, which qualify for protection and override your interests, rights and freedoms, or if the processing serves the purpose of enforcing, exercising or defending legal claims.

You have the right to revoke your consent according to data protection regulations at any time. The legitimacy of the processing that has taken place up until your revocation will not be affected by the revocation of the consent.

i) Automated decision-making in the individual case including profiling

You have the right to prevent being subjected to decision-making based exclusively on automated processing – including profiling – which develops legal effects for you or which causes a similarly significant restriction for you. This does not apply if the decision-making

is required for the conclusion or the fulfilment of a contract concluded between you and Robert C. Spies KG;
is permissible based on the legal regulations of the EU or the Member States that apply to the controller and if these legal regulations contain appropriate measures to protect your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests; or
