Legal basis of our data processing
The processing of personal data on our website can be based on various legal bases. If we need your data to fulfil a contract with you or to respond to enquiries from you regarding a contract, the legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 s. 1 b GDPR. If we obtain your consent for certain data processing, the legal basis is Art. 6 s. 1 a GDPR. We process some data on the basis of our legitimate interest, whereby a balancing of your interests worthy of protection and our legitimate interests is always carried out. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 s. 1 f GDPR.
Below we explain how we process personal data via our website.
Data processing during website access
During the mere informational use of the website, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise transmit information to us (e.g. via a contact form), we collect the following technical information (log file data):
- Operating system of the end device with which you visit our website
- Browser (type, version & language settings)
- the amount of data retrieved
- the current IP address of the end device with which you visit our website
- date and time of access
- the URL of the previously visited website (referrer)
- the URL of the (sub)page you retrieve on the website
- the Internet service provider of the accessing system
- Host name of the accessing computer
The collection of this data is technically necessary to display our website to you and to ensure stability and security. We (and our service provider) do not regularly know who is behind an IP address. We do not combine the data listed above with other data.
The legal basis is Art. 6 s. 1 f GDPR. Since the collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage in log files are absolutely necessary for the operation of the website and for protection against misuse, our legitimate interest in data processing prevails at this point.
When you contact us by e-mail or via a contact form, the data you provide (your e-mail address and name) will be stored by us in order to answer your questions and process your requests. The legal basis in this respect is Art. 6 s. 1 f GDPR. Insofar as we request information via our contact form that is not necessary for contacting you (e. g. company name), we always have marked this as optional. We use this information to specify your request and to improve the processing of your request. Any communication of this information is expressly on a voluntary basis and with your consent, Art. 6 s. 1 a GDPR. Insofar as this involves information on communication channels (e. g. e-mail address, telephone number), you also consent to us contacting you via this communication channel, if necessary, in order to respond to your request. Of course, you can withdraw this consent at any time for the future.
Your data, which we have received in the course of contacting you, will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected, your request has been fully processed and no further communication with you is necessary or desired by you.
As the data controller, our company has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can always have security gaps. Absolute protection cannot be guaranteed; in any case, sending unencrypted e-mails is not secure. We therefore ask you not to send sensitive data by unencrypted e-mail, but to use either encrypted communication channels (e. g. our contact form) or the postal service.
You can apply to our company electronically, e.g. via e-mail. Please note that unencrypted e-mails will not be transmitted without access protection.
Your details will be used for processing your application and deciding on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis is § 26 s. 1 in conjunction with § 26 s. 8 German Federal Data Protection Law (BDSG or Bundesdatenschutzgesetz). Furthermore, your personal data may be processed insofar as this is necessary for the defence of asserted legal claims against us arising from the application process. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 s. 1 f GDPR. The legitimate interest in the processing also lies in the stated purposes.
Insofar as an employment relationship arises between you and us, we may further process the personal data already received from you for the purposes of the employment relationship in accordance with § 26 s. 1 BDSG if this is necessary for the performance or termination of the employment relationship or for the exercise or fulfilment of the rights and obligations of the employee representation resulting from a law or a collective agreement, a works agreement or a service agreement (collective agreement).
Your application data will not be processed beyond the described use.
Your personal data will be erased after completion of the application procedure after 6 months at the latest, provided that no other legitimate interests on our part oppose erasure or you have not given us consent for longer storage. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeines Gleichstellungsgesetz or AGG).
We have taken extensive technical and operational precautions to protect your data from accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. Our security procedures are regularly reviewed and adapted to technological progress.
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.
As a matter of principle, your personal data will not be transferred to third parties unless we are legally obliged to do so, or the transfer of data is necessary for the performance of the contractual relationship, or you have previously expressly consented to the transfer of your data.
The respective service provider is responsible for the content of third-party services, whereby we check the services for compliance with the legal requirements within the scope of reasonableness.
We make a point of processing your data within the EU / EEA. However, we may use service providers who process data outside the EU / EEA. In these cases, we ensure that an adequate level of data protection comparable to the standards within the EU is established at the recipient before transferring your personal data. This can be achieved, for example, via EU standard contractual clauses or Binding Corporate Rules or special agreements to whose regulations the company can submit.
We will be happy to provide you with information on whether and which of your personal data is processed by us and for what purposes (Art. 15 GDPR). In addition, you have the right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR), the right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR), the right to erasure (Art. 17 GDPR) and the right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR) under the respective legal conditions.
You have the right to object to processing under the legal conditions (Art. 21 GDPR).
To exercise your above rights, please contact us by e-mail at info[at]artifex-abrasives.de or by mail at ARTIFEX Dr. Lohmann GmbH & Co. KG, Feldstrasse 8, 24568 Kaltenkirchen. The exercise of your above rights is free of charge for you.
Without prejudice to these rights and the possibility of seeking any other administrative or judicial remedy, you may at any time exercise your right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes data protection rules (Article 77 GDPR).
The supervisory authority responsible for us is: Unabhängiges Landeszentrum für Datenschutz Schleswig-Holstein (Independent Centre for Data Protection Schleswig-Holstein, Germany).
