2. General notes and mandatory information

Data Privacy

The operators of this website take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data as confidential and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this privacy policy.

If you use this website, various pieces of personal data will be collected. Personal information is any data with which you could be personally identified. This privacy policy explains what information we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done.

Please note that the transfer of data on the internet (e.g., communication via email) may be subject to security gaps. Completely protecting data against third-party access is impossible.

Notice concerning the Data Controller

The Data Controller for this website is:

Martin Krandick Tiefdruckgravuren GmbH & Co. KG
represented by the Managing Directors Martin Krandick and Kathrin Sicking
Robert-Bosch-Straße 3
48691 Vreden

The Data Controller is a physical or legal person who decides on the goals and methods of processing personal data (e.g., names, email addresses, etc.) either alone or in tandem with others.

Retention period

Unless a specific storage period is specified in this privacy policy, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for the processing of data no longer applies. If you make a legitimate request for deletion or revoke your consent to data processing, your data will be deleted unless we have any other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g., tax or commercial retention periods); in the latter case, the deletion takes place after these reasons no longer apply.

General information on the legal basis for the processing of data on this website

If you have consented to the processing of data, we will process your personal data on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR, or Art. 9 (2) (a) GDPR, if special data categories according to Art. 9 (1) GDPR are processed. In the event of express consent to have personal data sent to third countries, then the processing of data will also be based on Art. 49 (1) (a) DSGVO. If you have consented to the storage of cookies or to accessing information on your end device (e.g., via device fingerprinting), then the processing of data will also be carried out on the basis of Section 25 (1) of the Telecommunication Telemedia Data Protection Act (TTDSG). Consent is revocable at any time. If your data is required to fulfil the contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures, then we process your data on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR.

Note on data transfer to the USA and other third countries

Among other things, we use tools from companies based in the USA or other third countries that are not secure under data protection laws. When these tools are active, your personal data can be transferred to these third countries and processed there. We would like to point out that in these countries, no level of data protection comparable to that in the EU can be guaranteed. For example, US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as a data subject being able to take legal action against this. As such, it cannot be ruled out that US authorities (for example, intelligence services) process, evaluate and permanently store your data located on US servers for surveillance purposes. We have no influence over these processing activities.

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You may withdraw your consent at any time. The legality of the data processing performed prior to your revocation of consent remains unaffected.

Right to object to the collection of data in special cases and to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

IF DATA IS PROCESSED ON THE BASIS OF ART. 6 (1) (E) OR (F) GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA AT ANY TIME FOR REASONS SPECIFIC TO YOUR INDIVIDUAL CIRCUMSTANCES. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS. THE RESPECTIVE LEGAL BASIS ON WHICH PROCESSING IS BASED CAN BE FOUND IN THIS PRIVACY POLICY. IF YOU LODGE YOUR OBJECTION, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR RELEVANT PERSONAL UNLESS WE CAN PROVE COMPELLING LEGITIMATE REASONS FOR THE PROCESSING WHICH OUTWEIGH YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOM, OR THE PROCESSING SERVES THE PURPOSE OF ASSERTING, EXERCISING OR DEFENDING LEGAL CLAIMS (OBJECTION ON THE BASIS OF ART. 21 (1) GDPR).

IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS PROCESSED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA PERTAINING TO YOU FOR THE PURPOSE OF SUCH MARKETING. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING INSOFAR AS IT IS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS KIND OF DIRECT MARKETING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ARTICLE 21 (2) GDPR).

Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority

In the event of infringements of the GDPR, the persons concerned shall have the right to appeal to a supervisory authority, particularly in the member state of their habitual residence, workplace or place of presumed infringement. Your right to appeal exists without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data which we process on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract automatically delivered to yourself or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of data to another data controller, this shall only occur to the extent that is technically feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as the enquiries you send to us as the site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection in your browser's address line when it changes from "http://" to "https://" and the lock icon is displayed in your browser's address bar.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information, deletion and correction

As permitted by law, you have the right to be provided with information free of charge at any time about your personal data that is stored as well as its origin, the recipient and the purpose for which it has been processed. You also have the right to have this data corrected or deleted. You can contact us at any time about this and any other questions you may have on the subject of personal data.

Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted. You can contact us at any time to do this. The right to limit the data processing exists in the following cases:

  • If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we usually need time to verify this. During the period of verification, you have the right to demand that the processing of your personal data be restricted.
  • If the processing of your personal data has taken/is taking place unlawfully, you can demand the restriction of data processing instead of data deletion.
  • If we no longer require your personal data but you do for exercising, defending or asserting legal claims, you have the right to demand that the processing of your personal data be restricted instead of data being deleted.
  • If you have filed an objection pursuant to Art. 21(1) of the GDPR, your and our interests must be weighed. As long as it has not been ascertained whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand that the processing of your personal data be restricted.

Where the processing of your personal data has been restricted, such data - apart from being stored - may be processed only with your consent, or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person, or on the grounds of an important public interest of the European Union or of a Member State.

3. Data collection on this website

Cookies

Our websites use so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files and do not cause any damage to your device. They are stored either temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies) on your device. Session cookies are automatically deleted after your visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them yourself or your web browser automatically deletes them.

In some cases, cookies from third-party companies can also be stored on your device when you enter our website (third-party cookies). These enable us or you to use certain third-party services (e.g., cookies for processing payment services).

Cookies perform various different functions. Numerous cookies are technically necessary because certain website functions would not work without them (e.g., the shopping cart function or the display of videos). Other cookies are used to evaluate user behaviour or to display advertising.

Cookies that are necessary to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions that you have requested (e.g., for the shopping basket function) or to enhance the website (e.g., cookies to measure web audience) (necessary cookies) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, unless another legal basis is specified. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing necessary cookies to ensure the fault-free and optimised provision of its services. If consent to the storage of cookies and comparable recognition technologies has been requested, the processing takes place exclusively on the basis of this consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR and Section 25 (1) TTDSG); consent can be revoked at any time.

You can configure your browser to inform you about the use of cookies so that you can accept or reject cookies on an individual basis, to automatically accept cookies under certain conditions or always reject them, and to automatically delete cookies when you close your browser. Disabling cookies may limit your ability to use some of the functions of this website.

If cookies are used by third-party companies or for analysis purposes, we will inform you about this separately within the framework of this privacy policy and, if necessary, request your consent.

Cookie Consent with Borlabs Cookie

Our website uses the cookie consent technology from Borlabs Cookie in order to obtain your consent to the storage of certain cookies in your browser or to the use of certain technologies and to document them in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations. The provider of this technology is Borlabs - Benjamin A. Bornschein, Rübenkamp 32, 22305 Hamburg (hereinafter Borlabs).

When you enter our website, a Borlabs cookie is saved in your browser, in which the consent you have given or the revocation of this consent is saved. This data is not passed on to the provider of Borlabs Cookie.

The recorded data is stored until you ask us to delete it or you delete the Borlabs cookie yourself or the purpose for data storage does not longer apply. The statutory retention periods remain unaffected. You can find details about the data processing of Borlabs cookies at https://de.borlabs.io/kb/welche-daten-speichert-borlabs-cookie/

The Borlabs cookie consent technology is used in order to obtain the legally required consent for the use of cookies. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR.

Server log files

The website provider automatically collects and stores information in so-called "server log files", which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • and IP address

This data will not be combined with data from other sources.

These data are collected on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically correct display and optimisation of its website; for this purpose, the server log files must be stored.

Contact form

If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details you have provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up enquiries. We do not share this data without your permission.

This data is processed on the basis of Art. 6 Para. (1) (b) of the GDRP, insofar as your request is related to the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of requests addressed to us (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR) if this has been requested; the consent can be revoked at any time.

We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage is no longer applicable (e.g., after processing your request). Any mandatory statutory provisions – especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods – remain unaffected by this provision.

Enquiry by email, phone or fax

If you contact us by e-mail, phone or fax, your request, including all ensuing personal data (name, nature of enquiry), is stored and processed by us for the purposes of processing your request. We do not share this data without your permission.

This data is processed on the basis of Art. 6 Para. (1) (b) of the GDRP, insofar as your request is related to the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of requests addressed to us (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR) if this has been requested; the consent can be revoked at any time.

We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until its deletion is requested, your consent for storage is revoked, or the purpose for its storage is no longer applicable (e.g., after the handling of your enquiry has been completed). Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular statutory retention periods - remain unaffected.

4. Analytics tools and advertising

WP Statistics

This website uses the WP Statistics analysis tool to perform statistical analyses of visitor traffic. The provider is Veronalabs, ARENCO Tower, 27th Floor, Dubai Media City, Dubai, Dubai 23816, UAE (https://veronalabs.com).

WP Statistics allows us to analyse the use of our website. WP Statistics records, among other things, log files (IP address, referrer, browser used, origin of the user, search engine used) and actions taken by website visitors on the site (e.g., clicks and views).

The data recorded with WP Statistics is stored exclusively on our own server.

The use of the analysis tool is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in the anonymous analysis of user behaviour in order to optimise both our website and our advertising. If a corresponding consent has been requested, processing takes place exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR and Section 25 (1) of the Telecommunication Telemedia Data Protection Act (TTDSG), insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information in the user's end device (e.g., device fingerprinting) within the meaning of the Telecommunication Telemedia Data Protection Act (TTDSG). Consent is revocable at any time.

IP anonymisation

We use WP Statistics with anonymised IP. Your IP address will be shortened so that it can no longer be directly assigned to you.

Facebook Pixel

This website measures conversions using visitor action pixels from Facebook. The provider of this service is Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland. According to Facebook, the data collected will also be transferred to the USA and other third countries.

These allow the behaviour of site visitors to be tracked after they click on a Facebook ad to reach the provider's website. This allows an analysis of the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements for statistical and market research purposes and their future optimisation.

The collected data is anonymous for us as the operator of this website; we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of the users. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with the guidelines for Facebook data use. This will allow Facebook to display ads both on Facebook and on third-party sites. We as the operator of the site have no control over how this data is used.

The use of this service is based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR and Section 25 (1) of the Telecommunication Telemedia Data Protection Act (TTDSG). Consent is revocable at any time.

Transfer of data to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. Details can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/legal/EU_data_transfer_addendum and https://de-de.facebook.com/help/566994660333381.

Insofar as personal data is collected on our website and forwarded to Facebook using the tool described here, we and Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland are jointly responsible for this processing of data (Art. 26 of the GDPR). Joint responsibility is limited to collecting the data and passing it on to Facebook. Processing by Facebook after forwarding is not part of the joint responsibility. Our joint obligations have been set out in a joint processing agreement. The wording of the agreement can be found at: https://www.facebook.com/legal/controller_addendum. According to this agreement, we are responsible for issuing data protection information when using the Facebook tool and for implementing the tool on our website in a secure manner and in accordance with data protection laws. Facebook is responsible for the data security of Facebook products. You can assert your rights (e.g., requests for information) regarding the data processed on Facebook directly on Facebook. If you assert the rights of data subjects with us, we are obliged to forward them to Facebook.

To learn more about protecting your privacy, please refer to Facebook's privacy policy at: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

You can also disable the remarketing feature "Custom Audiences" in the Ad Settings section of https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen deaktivieren. To do so, you will first need to log into Facebook.

If you do not have a Facebook account, you can disable Facebook usage-based advertising on the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance website: http://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/.

6. Own services

Handling applicant data

We offer you the opportunity to apply for positions with us (e.g. by email, post or via the online application form). In the following, we will inform you as to the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected during the application process. We ensure that the collection, processing and use of your data is carried out in accordance with applicable data protection law and all other legal provisions and that your data is treated with strict confidentiality.

Scope and purpose of data collection

If you send us an application, we process your related personal data (e.g., contact and communication data, application documents, notes from job interviews etc.) insofar as this is necessary to decide on whether or not to establish an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is Article 26 of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) in accordance with German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR (general contract initiation) and – if you have provided consent – Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO. Consent is revocable at any time. Your personal data will only be passed on within our company to individuals involved in processing your application.

If your application is successful, the data you submit will be stored in our data processing systems on the basis of Section 26 of the Federal Data Protection Act [BDSG] and Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR for the purposes of implementing the employment relationship.

Data retention period

If we are unable to make you a job offer, you reject a job offer or withdraw your application, we reserve the right to store the data you have transmitted on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR) for up to six (6) months from the end of the application process (rejection or withdrawal of the application). The data is then deleted and the physical application documents destroyed. Data is stored in particular for evidence purposes in the event of a legal dispute. If the data will be foreseeably required after the six-month period has expired (e.g., due to an impending or pending legal dispute), deletion will only take place if the purpose of further storage is no longer applicable.

A longer storage can also take place if you have given a corresponding consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR) or if legal storage obligations oppose the deletion.

Admission to the applicant pool

If we do not make you a job offer, you may be able to join our applicant pool. In case of admission, all documents and information from the application will be transferred to the applicant pool in order to contact you in case of suitable vacancies.

Admission to the applicant pool is based exclusively on your express consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR). The submission agreement is voluntary and has no relation to the ongoing application procedure. Data subjects can withdraw their consent at any time. In this case, the data from the applicant pool will be irrevocably deleted, provided there are no legal reasons for storage.

The data from the applicant pool will be irrevocably deleted no later than two years after consent has been granted.
