Data Protection

Thank you for your interest in Hirschvogel Holding GmbH. Data protection is of paramount importance to us. In this privacy statement we would like to explain to you how personal data are handled at hirschvogel.com (hereinafter: “website”).

1. Automated collection and storing of access data

We make every effort to constantly improve the services on our website. For this purpose, we collect and store certain access data by automated means as soon as you access the website.

This data set consists of the following information:

  • the page from which the link to our website was made,
  • the date and time of access,
  • the duration of your visit to the website,
  • the amount of data transmitted,
  • the anonymised IP address of the accessing computer,
  • a description of the type and version of the web browser used,
  • the installed operating system and the resolution selected by the user.

 

These data are evaluated and temporarily stored for internal statistical purposes and for the technical administration of the website. In addition, temporary storage of the user’s IP address is necessary to ensure the functionality of the website for the duration of the session. Neither the data nor extracts from them are passed on to third parties. The data are stored separately from the records of personal data and will in no case be merged with your personal data; hence, no conclusions can be drawn as to the identity of the user.

The legal basis for the temporary storage of these data and the log files is Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR.

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to fulfil the purpose for which they were collected. In the event that the purpose of data recording is the provision of the website, this is the case when the session concerned has ended. For further details, see below under clause 3.

2. Collecting and storing personal data

Personal data will only be collected by us if you inform us of them voluntarily, e.g. via the contact form. Specifically, this may occur in the following cases:

a. Contact via contact form or email

If you contact us via our contact form or by email, the personal data you transmit (email address, name, address, telephone, subject of your enquiry) will be saved automatically for the purpose of processing your enquiry or in order to contact you. The data are used only to process your enquiry and for this purpose they will, if necessary, be forwarded to one of the group companies of Hirschvogel Holding GmbH listed in the masthead. No transfer to other third parties will be made.

If you send us application documents via the contact form or other contact data given on the website, we shall use the personal data they contain exclusively for the purpose of processing the application procedure. Data processing in this connection may also be via electronic means. If necessary, we shall forward your data to one of the group companies of Hirschvogel Holding GmbH listed in the masthead. The legal basis for processing data transmitted via the contact form or by sending an email is Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR. If the aim of the email contact is to conclude a contract, Art. 6 (1) b) is also the legal basis for the processing.

We process and store your personal data only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose for which the data were collected or if there is another statutory basis. Thereafter, erasure of the data will take place. For details, see clause 3.

b. Contact via the recruitment portal

In order to make the process of applying for a position as easy as possible for you, you can also send your job application to us, either as an unsolicited application or in response to a vacancy announcement, via our recruitment portal. Data you transmit via the recruitment portal will be collected and processed exclusively for the purpose of processing the application procedure. To this end, the data will, if necessary, be forwarded to one of the group companies of Hirschvogel Holding GmbH listed in the masthead and made available to the respective competent department. Before you send us your application you can stipulate that your data may only be collected and stored for the advertised position. If you send an unsolicited application, your application will be made available to those departments in the group companies of Hirschvogel Holding GmbH listed in the masthead which could have an interest in your application.

The legal basis for processing the data is Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR and Art. 6 (1) b) GDPR.

We process and store data you have transmitted via the recruitment portal for the duration of the application procedure and – in the event that we are unable to offer you a position – for a further six months in accordance with the statutory requirements. When this time limit expires, application documents such as e.g. your c.v. and certificates will be permanently erased and your personal data will be anonymised.

You can withdraw your application at any time. If you withdraw your application, subject to the above-named statutory requirements your data will then be erased or anonymised.

c. Cookies - Matomo

By clicking on the open positions data will be collected and stored by using the web analysis software Matomo (https://www.matomo.org) to optimize our recruiting.

The cookies enable the recognition of your browser and thus the analysis of the use of the website by you. Data collected using the Matomo technology (including your anonymized IP) will be transmitted to the server of our website service provider and stored there for analysis purposes which will help us to optimize our recruiting.

On accessing our website, the user is informed of the use of cookies for purposes of analysis and his consent to the processing of the personal data used in this connection is obtained. At the same time, reference is made to this privacy statement.

The legal basis for processing personal data using cookies for purposes of analysis is Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR.

However, in the case of activation of the IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will first be abbreviated by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other states which are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the complete IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and then abbreviated. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the frame of Google Analytics will not be stored together with other user data. Hence it is not possible to match the data to the corresponding user.

On accessing our website, the user is informed of the use of cookies for purposes of analysis and his consent to the processing of the personal data used in this connection is obtained. At the same time, reference is made to this privacy statement.

e. Use of YouTube

We have installed components of YouTube on our website. YouTube is an internet video portal that enables users to upload, view, evaluate and comment on video clips free of charge.

The company that operates YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Every time a page of this website is visited on which a YouTube video is installed, the internet browser on your IT system is automatically prompted by the YouTube component to download a display of the corresponding YouTube component. Further information on YouTube is available under https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/. In the context of this technical process YouTube and Google receive information regarding the specific page of our website that you visited.

If you are simultaneously logged in on YouTube, when you access a sub-page containing a YouTube video, YouTube recognises which specific sub-page of our website you are visiting. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to your YouTube account.

YouTube and Google receive information through the YouTube components that you have visited our internet page if at the time that you access our internet pages you are simultaneously logged in on YouTube; this occurs regardless of whether or not you click on a YouTube video.

When the user accesses corresponding individual pages of our website, he will be informed of the use of YouTube and his consent to processing of the data used in this connection will be obtained. At the same time, a reference is made to this privacy statement.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data when using cookies for purposes of analysis is Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR.

You can prevent the transmission to YouTube described above by logging out of your YouTube ac-count before you visit our website.

The privacy statement published by YouTube, available at https://www.google.de/intl/en/policies/privacy/, provides information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.
