Data Privacy Statement
Thank you for visiting our website. We would like to inform you about how we handle your data in accordance with Article 13 of the General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR").
The controller who is responsible for the collection and processing of data as described in this Data Privacy Statement is the person or unit specified in the website credits.
When you visit our website, our web server will temporarily store usage data in the form of protocols – for statistical purposes – to improve the quality of our web pages. These data sets consist of:
• the page from where the file is requested;
• the name of the file;
• date and time of the request;
• the data volume transmitted;
• the access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.);
• the description of the type of web browser used;
• the IP address of the requesting computer, abbreviated in such a way that it can no longer be related to any specific person.
This protocol data will only be stored in anonymised form.
The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO. The legitimate interest lies in making it technically possible for users to call up our website, to optimise the presentation of content to the user and to further improve/optimise our website in the future.
On our website you can write an e-mail to us on the "Contact" page. The data you provide (your e-mail address and, if applicable, your name) will only be stored for the purpose of processing and documenting your inquiry. This data is only passed on if this is necessary to process your inquiry. This data will not be passed on to third parties for advertising purposes.
The processing of your data when you contact us is based on your consent. The granting of consent is voluntary and can be revoked at any time with effect for the future by a simple declaration (e.g. by e-mail to email@example.com). A revocation has no influence on the legality of the processing that has taken place on the basis of the consent until the revocation.
The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO.
You can also apply for a job via our website. This may involve special categories of personal data. These are such data from which ethnic origin, political opinion, religion or belief, trade union membership, genetic disposition or biometric data, health status or information about sexual life or sexual orientation can be deduced.
If you wish to transmit such data to us, we ask for your express consent to process this data. Your decision is free and can be revoked at any time. The revocation does not affect the lawfulness of any processing that has been carried out with prior consent. The wording of your consent is:
"My application contains personal data falling under the special categories. I have read the data protection information for applicants and agree to the processing of this personal data for the purpose of processing my application. I am aware that I can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future."
Your data will be used by us exclusively for processing your application. For this purpose, the data is also transferred to the Zech Group companies for which you have applied. After the application procedure has ended, your data will be deleted or, in the case of a recruitment, transferred to your personnel file.
The legal basis for the processing of your data is Section 26 Paragraph 1 BDSG in conjunction with Art. 88 DSGVO, for the personal data covered by the special categories Art. 9 Paragraph 2 letter a DSGVO.
You can order a newsletter on our website. Registration requires the submission of a separate declaration of consent including your name and an e-mail address, which will be stored exclusively for the purpose of sending the newsletter to this address.
The granting of consent is voluntary and can be revoked at any time with effect for the future by a simple declaration (e.g. by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org). Every newsletter contains a link at the end where you can unsubscribe and thereby revoke your consent. A revocation has no influence on the lawfulness of the processing that took place on the basis of the consent up to the revocation. The subscription of the newsletter without consent is not possible.
The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO.
For the purposes of data processing pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR, we may transmit your data to service providers who assist us in the operation of our website and the associ-ated processes. These service providers may be hosting providers or web analysis pro-viders, for example. Our service providers are strictly bound by our instructions and the corresponding contractual obligations.
Transmission to third parties outside the EU/EEA
We do not transmit personal data to third countries outside the EU.
We use both permanent and session cookies on our website. Any processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6(1) sentence 1 letter f GDPR and with the purpose of ena-bling and optimising user experience and to adjust the visuals of our website.
The following cookies are also used:

Links to other companies
On our website we use links to other companies. If you click on these, you will leave our website and be on the website of the other companies. The conditions for this can be found in the data protection declarations of the companies clicked on. We are not responsible for their contents and their data handling.
Use of buttons with links to social networks
Our website uses buttons with links to our accounts on Xing, LinkedIn, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and kununu. These buttons do not transmit any data to the social networks mentioned. Only by clicking these buttons do you leave our website and get redirected to our accounts in the relevant social networks. You are then no longer on our website, and are instead on the websites of the social networks you clicked on. Depending on the settings in your browser or in the social network, personal data about you will be recorded there. You can find the conditions for this in the data protection declarations of the social networks you clicked. We cannot assume any responsibility for these.
We do not use the Facebook “like” button on our website because this enables Facebook to record data about you even when such buttons are not clicked. If you wish to “like” us, we would be pleased to hear from you. Simply click on our button with the link to Facebook. Our Facebook fan page has a “like” button.
Integration of YouTube
(1) We have integrated YouTube videos into our website, which are stored at www.YouTube.com and can be played directly from there. YouTube is a service of Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountainview, California 94043, USA. The videos are all integrated in "extended data protection mode", i.e. no data about the user is transferred to YouTube or Google if the user does not play the videos. Only when the user plays the videos will the data mentioned in paragraph (2) be transferred. The provider has no influence on this data transfer.
(2) By visiting the website, YouTube receives the information that the user has called up the corresponding subpage of the website. In addition, the above-mentioned data is transmitted. This occurs regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account through which the user is logged in or whether no user account exists. If the user is logged in to YouTube, this information is directly associated with the user's account. If the user does not wish to have the assignment with his profile on YouTube, he must log out of YouTube before activating the button.
(3) YouTube stores these data as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) for the purpose of providing advertising that meets the needs of the users. The user has a right of objection to the creation of these user profiles, whereby the user must contact YouTube to exercise this right.
(4) By integrating YouTube, the user is given the opportunity to retrieve videos and, if applicable, to use the functionalities of YouTube. The purpose of this is to improve our offer.
Integration of Google Maps
We integrate the maps of the "Google Maps" service of the provider Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). Pseudonymised user profiles are created and cookies are used. The processed data may include, in particular, IP addresses and location data of the users. The data may be processed in the USA. Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield.
Google stores your data as user profiles and uses them for purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) for the purpose of providing needs-based advertising and to inform other users about your activities on our website. The IP addresses are made anonymous, so that an assignment is not possible (IP masking).
You can generally prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website and/or other websites to their full extent.
The legal basis for data processing on this website is the EU Data Protection Basic Regulation (DSGVO), in particular Art. 6 Para. 1 and, for applications, Art. 26 of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). The data will only be stored for as long as necessary for the above-mentioned purposes or as required by law.Your rights as a user
The GDPR gives you, as a website user, certain rights with regard to the processing of your personal data.

3. Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR):
You have the right to request restriction of processing if one of the requirements speci-fied in Art. 18 GDPR has been met, e.g. if you have objected to processing pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR or pending the verification as to whether our legitimate interests override yours as the data subject.
