The following Privacy Policy provides information about the principles applied by Promerit AG when handling your data. This Privacy Policy is based on the terminology used by the European regulator in issuing the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

This Privacy Policy covers the collection, processing and use of both personal and non-personal data. Personal data is individual details about personal or material circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person. Non-personal data is data that cannot be referred to a specific or identifiable person, e.g. data about general website use.

Access data

It is generally possible to use this website without providing personal data. Whenever you visit a page on our website, and every time a file is accessed, access data about this process is stored in a log file. The corresponding log file contains: the page from which the file was requested, the name of the file, the date and time of the request, the transferred data sets, the access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.), a description of the type of operating system and web browser used. The stored data does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your identity and is only evaluated for statistical purposes.

Cookies

This website uses cookies. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your terminal. Your browser accesses these files. The use of cookies improves the user-friendliness and security of this website.

Commonly used browsers offer a configuration option which blocks cookies. Please note: We cannot guarantee that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restriction if you configure your browser in this way.

Handling of personal data

The website operator collects, uses and forwards your personal data only if this is permitted within the statutory framework or if you consent to the collection of data.

Handling contact details

When you contact the website operator using the contact options offered, your contact details will be stored for the purpose of processing and responding to your enquiry. These data are not disclosed to third parties.

Google Analytics

This website uses the “Google Analytics” service, which is operated by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA), to analyse the use of the website by users. This service uses “cookies” – small text files which are stored on your terminal. The information collected by the cookies is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

IP anonymisation applies to this website. The IP address of users is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area. This shortening means that your IP address can no longer be attributed to you as an individual. Within the scope of the third-party data processing agreement which the website operators have concluded with Google Inc., Google Inc. uses the collected information to create an analysis of website use and website activity and provides services related to internet use.

You have the option to prevent the setting of cookies on your device by configuring your browser settings accordingly. We cannot guarantee that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restriction if your browser does not allow cookies.

Newsletter subscription

The website operator offers you a newsletter in which it informs you of current events and special offers. If you would like to subscribe to the newsletter you will need to enter a valid email address.

User rights: Information, correction and deletion

As the user, you will, upon request, be informed about which personal data about you are stored by us; this information is provided free of charge. Provided your request does not conflict with a statutory duty to retain the data (e.g. data preservation) you are entitled to request the correction of wrong data and the blocking or deletion of your personal data.

Data protection in the course of applications and the recruitment process

The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of performing the recruitment process. Processing may take place electronically. This particularly applies where an applicant has submitted the application documents to the controller by electronic means, e.g. by email or through an online form on the website. In the event that a contract of employment is concluded between the controller and the applicant, the submitted data are stored in compliance with the statutory provisions for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship. If no contract of employment is concluded between the controller and the applicant, the application documents are deleted within the period stipulated by statute.

Data economy

In accordance with the principles of data reduction and economy, we store personal data only as long as storage is required or is prescribed by statute (statutory retention period). Once the purpose of the collected information no longer applies or the retention period expires we block or delete the data.

Revision of the Privacy Policy

Promerit AG will review and amend this Privacy Policy from time to time. We therefore recommend that you read the provisions of this Privacy Policy from time to time to ensure that you are up to date on how Promerit AG collects, processes and uses your data.
