This data is collected and used solely in an anonymised form when you visit our website to obtain information. We do this so that you can use the website you have accessed, but also for statistical purposes and to improve our Internet service. We store your IP address only for the duration of your visit. This data is not evaluated with reference to individual persons.
4. Personal data
In some cases, you may be required to submit personal data.
a) What is personal data?
Personal data comprises details concerning the personal or material circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, their name, e-mail address, details of their address and the IP address of the device that they are using. Information that would require a disproportionate effort to identify you or that cannot be used to identify you does not constitute personal data.
b) Contact us
You can contact us via telephone, post or e-mail. Our contact details can be found on the “Contact” page. We request that you submit certain personal data (your full name, company details and your e-mail address), as this enables us to answer your query as quickly and helpfully as possible. In many cases, specifying your request (current requirement, annual requirement, etc.) and your address helps your query to be processed more smoothly. Therefore, you may also want to share these details with us. However, it is your choice whether you do so or not. In every case, we strive to answer your query as helpfully as possible and to your satisfaction, and assure you that we will use your personal data solely for the purpose relating to your query. However, we do reserve the right not to fulfil your request if certain details are not provided that are required in the case in question.
c) Application process
On our website, we offer you the opportunity to apply via e-mail (email@example.com) for job positions that we are advertising. In so doing, you will normally share personal data with us. By submitting your application, you confirm that the information you have provided is correct. All incorrect information and every deliberate omission may result in rejection or later dismissal.
d) For what purpose is data collected and processed?
e) Who can view my data?
Your application will be processed and perused solely by relevant in-house contact partners. All employees involved in data processing are obligated to respect the confidentiality of your data. Your details are not passed on to third parties under any circumstances. The data is processed solely in Germany. To the extent that we involve external service providers in managing and conducting the application process, we have ensured that these similarly uphold data secrecy and have taken security precautions to prevent unauthorised persons perusing your data, and that they only handle your data on our behalf and according to our instruction.
f) How long will my data be stored?
If we cannot offer you employment, we will keep your data for up to six months for the purpose of answering questions relating to your application and rejection.
6. Use of tracking tools
To ensure the tailored design and optimum performance of this website, solutions and technologies by econda GmbH (www.econda.de) not only collect and store anonymised data, but also utilise this data to compile usage profiles by means of pseudonyms. Cookies can be used for this purpose, making it possible for an Internet browser to be recognised. However, usage profiles are not compiled using data pertaining to the bearer of the pseudonym without express consent of the visitor. IP addresses, in particular, are rendered indecipherable immediately after receipt, which makes it impossible to match a usage profile with an IP address.
7. Use of other analysis tools
8. Social media links
Our website contains social media links. These are not social plug-ins; they are solely links to Geza Holzinger social media profiles on Facebook, YouTube, etc. To the best of our knowledge and in accordance with the declarations of the social media providers, these links do not collect or store any personal data, provided you are not logged in to your social media account and you do not open the link. If you do open one of the links, but are not logged in to the social media network, the log-in screen of the social media network will open in a new window and a cookie from the social media provider will simultaneously be stored on the hard drive of your device. If you are logged in to your account and open the link, our own social media company page will open. There you will find more information about our products and our company. You can leave posts and – depending on your privacy settings – recommend posts to other users. Your browser will also relay specific information, such as your IP address and other information, to the server of the social media provider. The social media provider can record and store this information, assign it to your user account and the personal data stored there, and make it publicly available. In some cases, a cookie from the social media provider is stored on your device in order to record and trace your websurfing behaviour on our websites. Please note that we have no influence on the data collected by each social media provider.
The Facebook link takes you to the services of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. Details regarding what other data is collected in this process, and how it is used, can be found in the information provided by Facebook regarding data protection: www.facebook.com/help.

If you are a member of one of the social media networks mentioned above, but do not want the social media provider to collect data about your visit to our websites, please log out of your social media account before visiting our website and opening the link. It may also be helpful to erase all social media cookies from your browser.
