Chemgineering sends out newsletters with advertising content to users who have expressly consented by registering and confirming their e-mail address.
The newsletters contain technical articles and event information as well as information on Chemgineering services.
Documentation of the application
The registration to our newsletter takes place only after confirmation of the e-mail address. After sending the registration form, we will send the recipient a double opt-in mailing with a confirmation link. Only by clicking the confirmation link, the registration takes place.
To prove a valid consent date and time of the clicking of the confirmation link, the IP address of the calling user as well as the e-mail address of the receiver are stored together in a log file. In addition, a copy of the double opt-in mailing is stored and archived in an audit-proof manner.
Registration data of the user
The user's e-mail address is sufficient for registration. Voluntary details such as salutation, first name and surname are used exclusively for personalisation.
Evaluation of user behaviour
Chemgineering uses newsletter tracking in its newsletters and records recipient reactions and stores them anonymously for statistical purposes. It is not possible to draw conclusions about individual users from the stored data.
If the user expressly consents in advance, the recipient reactions are recorded and stored on a personal basis. This enables Chemgineering to better tailor the contents of the newsletter to the personal interests of the user.
The user can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time and thus revoke his consent to receive the newsletter. Any consent to the collection of data on the personal usage behaviour of the newsletter which may be available shall also lapse.
The user has the possibility to carry out the newsletter himself at any time via the unsubscribe link contained in each newsletter.
The user also has the possibility to revoke at any time his consent to the recording and evaluation of personal user behaviour separately from his consent to the receipt of the newsletter via the revocation link contained in each newsletter.
Responsible for data processing
Purposes of data processing
The Chemgineering Group and its individual companies collect and process your personal data for the purpose of your application for an employment relationship, insofar as this is necessary for the decision to establish an employment relationship with us. The legal basis is § 26 Paragraph 1 in conjunction with Paragraph 8 Sentence 2 BDSG.
Furthermore, we may process personal data about you insofar as this is necessary to defend against legal claims asserted against us in the application process. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 Para. 1, Letter f DSGVO; the legitimate interest is, for example, a duty of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
Insofar as an employment relationship exists between you and us, we may process the personal data already received from you for the purposes of the employment relationship in accordance with Section 26 (1) BDSG if this is necessary for the performance or termination of the employment relationship or for exercising or fulfilling the rights and obligations of the employees' representation of interests resulting from a law or collective agreement (collective agreement).
The Chemgineering Group processes data related to your application. This can be general data about you (such as name, address and contact data) and information about your professional knowledge and skills such as curriculum vitae, certificates, evaluations and communication data in accordance with § 88 (1) EU-DSGVO in conjunction with § 26 (1) BDSG (new). Furthermore, we may process job-related information made publicly available by you, such as a profile on professional social media networks.
Internal access to data
Within the group of companies, only the specific groups of persons and positions (e.g. human resources, specialist departments, management) receive your personal data which they require for the hiring decision and for the fulfilment of our pre-contractual and statutory obligations.
If you have applied for a position abroad, your application will also be forwarded to the specific groups of people and positions (e.g. human resources, specialist departments, management) on site in order to carry out the application procedure. Depending on the location, this may result in data being transferred to a country which, in the opinion of the EU Commission, does not have an adequate level of data protection. Personal data will only be passed on to third parties if you have expressly agreed to this or if data protection law permits this. Please note that your data will be forwarded within the group of companies to the company for which the position is to be filled.
Duration of data storage
We store your personal data for as long as it is necessary to make a decision about your application. If an employment relationship between you and us does not materialize, we may also further store data, insofar as this is necessary to defend against possible legal claims. The application documents will be deleted six months after notification of the rejection decision, unless longer storage is required due to legal disputes.
If it turns out during the application process that we cannot promise you a specific position, you still have the possibility that we can consider your profile in the event of possible future vacancies. We will obtain the necessary consent from you separately by e-mail in due course. Please confirm them so that we can include you in our applicant pool. After successful admission to the applicant pool, we will store your data for a further 12 months. Your data will then be deleted automatically.
You have the possibility to revoke your consent to the use of your personal data at any time with effect for the future. All you need to do is send an e-mail to email@example.com. A revocation results in the termination of the application procedure. You are responsible for the accuracy of the data you enter.
As an applicant at Chemgineering you have the following data protection rights, depending on the situation in individual cases, for the exercise of which you can contact us at any time via the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org.
You have the right to obtain information about your personal data processed by us and to request access to your personal data and/or copies of these data. This includes information on the purpose of use, the category of data used, its recipients and authorised persons and, if possible, the planned duration of data storage or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining this duration;
b. Correction, deletion or limitation of processing
You have the right to request us to correct any inaccurate personal data concerning you without delay. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, you have the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data - also by means of a supplementary declaration.
c. right of objection
Insofar as the processing of personal data concerning you is based on Art. 6 para 1 letter f DSGVO, you have the right to object to the processing of such data at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. We will then no longer process this personal data unless we can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing, which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
d. right of revocation
If the processing is based on consent, you have the right to revoke the consent at any time without affecting the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation. To do so, you can contact us at any time via the e-mail address email@example.com.
e. Right to cancellation
You have the right to request us to delete personal data concerning you immediately and we are obliged to delete personal data immediately if one of the following reasons applies:
- the personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed
- you oppose the processing in accordance with point 8.c above and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing.
- The personal data have been processed unlawfully.
- The deletion of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which we are subject.
This does not apply if processing is necessary:
- to fulfil a legal obligation which processing requires under the law of the Union or of the Member States to which we are subject.
- to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
f. Right to limitation of processing
You have the right to request us to restrict processing if one of the following conditions is met:
the accuracy of your personal data is disputed, for a period that enables us to verify the accuracy of the personal data,
the processing is unlawful and you refuse to delete the personal data and instead request that the use of the personal data be restricted; we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of processing, but you do need them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or you have lodged an objection to the processing under point 8.c above until it has been determined whether our legitimate reasons outweigh yours.
Where processing has been restricted in accordance with this point (e), such personal data may only be processed - apart from being stored - with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending rights or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or on grounds of an important public interest of the Union or a Member State. If you have obtained a restriction on processing, we will inform you before the restriction is lifted.
g. right of appeal
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State where you are staying, working or suspected of infringing, if you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you is contrary to the DSGVO.
Necessity of providing personal data
The provision of personal data is neither required by law nor by contract, nor are you obliged to provide the personal data. However, the provision of personal data is required for a contract of employment with one of the companies of the Chemgineering Group. This means that if you do not provide us with any personal data in an application, we will not enter into an employment relationship with you.
In principle, you have the rights to information, correction, deletion, restriction, data transferability, revocation and objection. If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or your data protection claims have otherwise been violated in any way, you may complain to the supervisory authority.
