Protecting your privacy when processing personal data is important to us. Therefore, we would like to provide you with the following information.
Personal data concerns data about you. This includes your name, address and email address. You do not need to provide any personal data to visit our website. In certain cases, we will need your name and address, as well as additional information in order to provide you with the requested services.
The same applies if you would like us to provide you with information material or in order to respond to your queries. In such cases, we will always inform you. Furthermore, we only store the data which you have provided to us automatically or voluntarily.
When you use one of our servers, we generally only collect data which is required in order to provide you with our service. We may ask you for additional information, but this is voluntary. Whenever we process personal data, we do so in order to provide our service or to pursue business objectives.
If you provide us with data using the contact form, this data will be stored on our servers as part of the data storage process. Your data will only be used in order to process your request and, in certain cases, it may be passed on internally within the ACP Group. Your data is processed in a strictly confidential manner. It will not be passed onto third parties.
We use the software Hubspot to send our newsletter. As part of this, we use a so-called double opt-in procedure (i.e. we will only send you a newsletter if you have explicitly requested that we activate the newsletter service for you). We will then send you a notification email, asking that you click on the link in the email to confirm that you would like to receive our newsletter. When signing up to our newsletter, we store your IP address and the sign-up date. This information is stored solely in the event of third party misuse of your email address to sign up to the newsletter without your knowledge or consent. The legal basis for this is your consent, according to art. 6, para. 1, lit a of the GDPR. If you unsubscribe from the newsletter and there is no commercial relationship between us and you, your data will be deleted immediately.
If you wish to unsubscribe from our newsletter at a later date, you can do so at any time without incurring any cost other than the data transmission costs at your standard tariff (e.g. when clicking on the unsubscribe link in the email).
On our website, we give users the option to register for a user account using their personal details. Following registration on the website, you will receive a confirmation email from us, which will be sent to the email address provided by you.
The legal basis for processing this data is art. 6, para. 1, lit b of the GDPR. The registration data will not be passed on to third parties.
We store this data for the purpose of setting up and providing the user account. Your application(s) and applicant profile will be stored in this account.
As part of your registration on the ACP applicant portal, you can also sign up to a job newsletter for future ACP job vacancies. You can unsubscribe at any time via your applicant profile or through an integrated link in the job newsletter. You always have the option to download and correct the stored data. We delete your user account and the data stored in it when you request its deletion or when you explicitly withdraw the submitted application(s).
If the data is required for contractual reasons or to conduct pre-contractual measures, the data can only be deleted prematurely if there are no contractual or legal obligations to the contrary. Furthermore, we process your data until the conclusion of any legal disputes whereby the data is required as evidence.
On our website, we offer applicants the option to apply to the job vacancies online or to submit a speculative application. In doing so, the data will be entered/uploaded into an input screen and then transmitted to our systems, where it is stored. A user account is required to apply to a job offer or to send a speculative application.
Once an application has been sent, an automated email will be sent to the email address you provided.
The application data stored in your user account can be viewed, changed or deleted at any time.
For the purpose of reviewing and processing your application and in order to get in touch, your data may be viewed by the person(s) responsible for the respective job vacancy/speculative application.
When looking for the best applicants and workplaces, we take your applicant data into account for open vacancies in your region. For this reason, we pass your applicant data onto our companies within the ACP Group.
Under no circumstance will your applicant data be passed onto third parties outside the ACP Group.
The legal basis for processing your data is your consent, given especially prior to sending your application via the corresponding form on our website. (art. 6, para. 1, lit a of the GDPR, possibly in connection with art. 9, para. 2, lit a of the GDPR insofar as special personal data is included in your application).
It may be necessary to pass your data onto third parties where legally required, e.g. in order to pursue prosecution or to implement intellectual property laws. The legal basis in such cases is art. 6, para. 1, lit c of the GDPR.
We delete the application data you have provided from our systems if you explicitly withdraw your consent and/or if you delete your account.
We will also delete your data 6 months after the end of the application process, insofar as we do not suggest another vacancy to you or if you consent to us storing your application on file data for an additional 12 months. One month prior to the expiration of the retention period, you will receive an email offering you the option to extend the storage of your application data on file by a further 12 months. This consent can be withdrawn at any time in your user/application account.
You cannot delete the data if it is required to fulfil a contract or to conduct pre-contractual measures. Premature deletion of the data is only possible if there are no contractual or legal obligations preventing deletion. Furthermore, we process your data until the conclusion of any legal disputes whereby the data is required as evidence.
For each customer, we setup password-protected direct access to the core data we store on them (customer account). Here, you can view the data on completed orders and you are obliged to treat the personal access data with confidentiality, preventing access to the data from third parties. We cannot accept liability for the misuse of passwords, unless we are responsible for the misuse.
We collect, store and process your data for the entire purchase process. Your personal data will only be passed on or otherwise transmitted to third parties where this is required in order to process the contract or for billing purposes. As part of the order process, the service providers we use (for example shipping and logistics companies) will receive the required data for the order and contract processing. Such data may only be used by our service providers in order to fulfil their task. Any other use of the information is not permitted and this also applies to our trusted service providers.
For your order, we require your correct and complete company name, address and VAT identification number for the purpose of billing. We need your email address in order to assign your order in our goods management system and to communicate with you. We also use this to identify you (customer login).
Your personal data will be deleted if the statutory retention obligations have been met and you have made a claim for deletion, if the data is no longer required to fulfil the purpose of storage or if the storage is otherwise not legally permitted.
When you visit our website, our internet servers generally store your internet service provider IP, the website from which you visited us, the webpages you visit on our site and the date and duration of the visit. This information is required for the technical transfer of webpages and the secure operation of the server. This data is not evaluated personally.
The website provider automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser sends to us automatically. These are:
This data is not merged with other data sources. Processing takes place in accordance with art. 6, para. 1, lit f of the GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in the improvement of our website’s stability and functionality.
For technical security reasons, in particular to defend against attempted attacks on our web servers, this data is stored by us temporarily. It is not possible to trace a person’s identity based on this data. After no later than seven days, the data is anonymised using an abbreviated IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to trace the individual user. The data is then processed in anonymised format for statistical purposes; the data is not compared with other components or passed on to third parties, even in excerpts.
We have taken technical and administrative security measures in order to protect your personal data against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. All of our employees and active service providers are obliged to comply with the data protection laws.
Whenever we gather and process personal data, it will be encrypted before it is sent. This means that your data cannot be misused by third parties. Our security measures are subject to a constant process of improvement and our data protection declarations are constantly updated. Please ensure that you have consulted the most recent version.
Additionally, when visiting our website for the first time, we request that you consent to cookies used to improve our website or for marketing purposes. Only if you agree to this will such cookies be stored. The legal basis for this shall then be your consent, in accordance with art. 6, para. 1, lit a of the GDPR.
