Data protection declaration

1. Introduction

With the following information we would like to give you as a "person concerned" an overview of the processing of your personal data by us and your rights under data protection laws. In principle, it is possible to use our web pages without entering personal data. However, if you wish to make use of special services of our company via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain your consent.

The processing of personal data, for example your name, address or e-mail address, always takes place in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to "Siteco GmbH". By means of this data protection declaration, we would like to inform you about the scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us.

As data controllers, we have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete possible protection of the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, web-based data transmissions can in principle have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, you are also free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone or post.

4. Technology

4.1 SSL/TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption to ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login data or contact requests that you send to us as the operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that in the address line of the browser instead of a ""http://"" there is a ""https://"" and on the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

4.2 Data acquisition when visiting the website

When using our website for information purposes only, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect data that your browser transmits to our server (in so-called "server log files"). Our website collects a range of general data and information each time a page is accessed by you or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The following can be recorded:

1. browser types and versions used,
2. the operating system used by the accessing system,
3. the Internet page from which an accessing system accesses our Internet page (so-called referrer),
4. the subwebsites, which are accessed via an accessing system on our website,
5. the date and time of access to the website,
6. an Internet protocol address (IP address),
7. the Internet service provider of the accessing system.

When using this general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about your person. Rather, this information is required in order to:

1. to deliver the content of our website correctly,
2. to optimise the content of our website and the advertising for it,
3. to guarantee the permanent functionality of our IT systems and the technology of our website and
4. to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack.

This collected data and information is therefore evaluated by us both statistically and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The data in the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our justified interest follows from the purposes listed above for data collection.

5. Disclosure of data to third parties

Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those listed below.
We will only pass on your personal data to third parties if:

1. you have given your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a GDPR,
2. the disclosure in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR to protect our legitimate interests is permissible and there is no reason to believe that you have a predominant legitimate interest in the non-disclosure of your data,
3. you have given your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a GDPR,
2. the disclosure in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR to protect our legitimate interests is permissible and there is no reason to believe that you have a predominant legitimate interest in the non-disclosure of your data,
3. in the event that there is a legal obligation to disclose your data pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c GDPR, as well as

These data are stored against the background that this is the only way to prevent misuse of our services and, if necessary, to enable criminal offences to be investigated. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary for our security. These data will not be passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to do so or the data is used for criminal prosecution purposes.

Your registration with voluntary indication of personal data also serves us to offer you contents or services which, due to the nature of the matter, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to modify the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have it completely deleted from our database.

We will provide you at any time on request with information about which personal data about you is stored. Furthermore, we will correct or delete personal data at your request, provided there are no legal storage obligations to the contrary. A data protection officer named in this data protection declaration and all other employees are available to the person concerned as contact persons in this context.

The processing of your data is carried out in the interest of a comfortable and simple use of our website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Personal data is collected within the scope of contacting us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail). Which data is collected in the case of a contact form, is apparent from the respective contact form. These data are stored and used exclusively for the purpose of answering your request or for establishing contact and the associated technical administration. The legal basis for processing the data is our legitimate interest in responding to your request pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If the purpose of your contact is to conclude a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR.

7.3 Application management / Job exchange

We collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. The processing can also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits corresponding application documents to us electronically, for example by e-mail or via a web form on the website. If we conclude an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If we do not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests on our part are opposed to deletion. Other legitimate interests in this sense are, for example, a duty of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

In this respect, data processing is carried out solely on the basis of our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or registration in this respect, as might be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter offering or changes to the technical conditions.
