On the one hand, we use so-called “session cookies”, which are only stored temporarily for the duration of your use of one of our websites. On the other hand, we use “permanent cookies” (including “flash cookies”) to store information about computers that repeatedly access our website. This enables us to offer you optimal user guidance and to “recognize” you and present you with a website that is as varied as possible and new content when you use it repeatedly. You can deactivate the storage of cookies in your browser under Extras/Internet options, restrict them to certain websites or set your browser to notify you as soon as a cookie is sent. You also have the option of removing existing cookies with your browser. You can find more information on these functions in the documentation or in the help file of your browser.

Google Tag Manager

We use the Google Tag Manager. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Google Tag Manager is a tool that enables us to integrate tracking or statistical tools and other technologies on our website. The Google Tag Manager itself does not create any user profiles, does not store any cookies and does not carry out any independent analyses. It is only used to manage and display the tools integrated via it. However, Google Tag Manager records your IP address, which may also be transmitted to Google’s parent company in the United States.

The Google Tag Manager is used on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the fast and uncomplicated integration and management of various tools on its website. If a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information in the user’s terminal device (e.g. device fingerprinting) within the meaning of the TTDSG. Consent can be revoked at any time.

 

Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Google Analytics enables the website operator to analyze the behavior of website visitors. The website operator receives various usage data, such as page views, length of visit, operating systems used and origin of the user. This data is summarized in a user ID and assigned to the respective end device of the website visitor.

We can also use Google Analytics to record your mouse and scroll movements and clicks, among other things. Google Analytics also uses various modeling approaches to supplement the collected data records and uses machine learning technologies for data analysis.

Google Analytics uses technologies that enable the recognition of the user for the purpose of analyzing user behavior (e.g. cookies or device fingerprinting). The information collected by Google about the use of this website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

The use of this service is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG. Consent can be revoked at any time.

Data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. You can find details here: https://privacy.google.com/businesses/controllerterms/mccs/.

You can find more information on how Google Analytics handles user data in Google’s privacy policy: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.

 

Google signals

We use Google signals. When you visit our website, Google Analytics records your location, search history and YouTube history as well as demographic data (visitor data), among other things. This data can be used for personalized advertising with the help of Google Signal. If you have a Google account, the visitor data from Google Signal is linked to your Google account and used for personalized advertising messages. The data is also used to compile anonymous statistics on the user behavior of our users.

 

Data Protection Agreement

We have concluded an data protection agreement with Google and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

 

GOOGLE ADS

The website operator uses Google Ads. Google Ads is an online advertising program of Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Google Ads enables us to display advertisements in the Google search engine or on third-party websites when the user enters certain search terms on Google (keyword targeting). Furthermore, targeted advertisements can be displayed based on the user data available at Google (e.g. location data and interests) (target group targeting). As the website operator, we can evaluate this data quantitatively, for example by analyzing which search terms led to the display of our advertisements and how many advertisements led to corresponding clicks. The use of Google Ads is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in marketing its products and services as effectively as possible.

 

GOOGLE REMARKETING

This website uses the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Google Remarketing analyzes your user behavior on our website (e.g. clicks on certain products) in order to classify you into certain advertising target groups and then display suitable advertising messages to you when you visit other online offers (remarketing or retargeting).

Furthermore, the advertising target groups created with Google Remarketing can be linked to Google’s cross-device functions. In this way, interest-based, personalized advertising messages that have been adapted to you depending on your previous usage and surfing behavior on one device (e.g. cell phone) can also be displayed on another of your devices (e.g. tablet or PC). If you have a Google account, you can object to personalized advertising at the following link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.

The use of Google Remarketing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in marketing its products as effectively as possible. If a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time. Further information and the data protection provisions can be found in Google’s privacy policy at

https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads?hl=en.

 

TARGET GROUP FORMATION WITH CUSTOMER MATCHING

Among other things, we use Google Remarketing customer matching to create target groups. Here, we transfer certain customer data (e.g. email addresses) from our customer lists to Google. If the customers in question are Google users and are logged into their Google account, they are shown suitable advertising messages within the Google network (e.g. on YouTube, Gmail or in the search engine).

 

FACEBOOK PIXEL

This website uses Facebook’s visitor action pixel to measure conversions. The provider of this service is Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland. However, according to Facebook, the data collected is also transferred to the USA and other third countries. This allows the behavior of site visitors to be tracked after they have been redirected to the provider’s website by clicking on a Facebook ad. This allows the effectiveness of Facebook ads to be evaluated for statistical and market research purposes and future advertising measures to be optimized.

The data collected is anonymous for us as the operator of this website; we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of the user. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with the Facebook Data Usage Policy. This allows Facebook to place advertisements on Facebook pages and outside of Facebook. This use of the data cannot be influenced by us as the site operator.

The use of Facebook Pixel is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in effective advertising measures including social media. If a corresponding consent has been requested (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.

You can find further information on protecting your privacy in Facebook’s privacy policy: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

YouTube with enhanced data protection

This website embeds videos from YouTube. The operator of the pages is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

We use YouTube in extended data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode means that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. However, the transfer of data to YouTube partners is not necessarily excluded by the extended data protection mode. For example, YouTube establishes a connection to the Google DoubleClick network regardless of whether you watch a video. As soon as you start a YouTube video on this website, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

Furthermore, YouTube may store various cookies on your end device after starting a video or use comparable recognition technologies (e.g. device fingerprinting). In this way, YouTube can obtain information about visitors to this website. This information is used, among other things, to record video statistics, improve user-friendliness and prevent fraud attempts. If necessary, further data processing operations may be triggered after the start of a YouTube video, over which we have no influence. The use of YouTube is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.

How long will your data be stored?

If you are hired, we will transfer your application documents to your personnel file. After termination of the employment relationship, we will continue to store the personal data that we are legally obliged to retain. This regularly results from legal obligations to provide evidence and retain data, which are regulated in the German Commercial Code and the German Fiscal Code, among others. The storage periods are up to ten years. In addition, personal data may be stored for the period during which claims can be asserted against us (statutory limitation period of three or up to thirty years).

In the event of rejection, your application documents will be deleted no later than six months after completion of the application process, unless you have given us your consent to keep them for a longer period (applicant pool). This also applies to the consideration of your application for other vacancies in the company/group.

 

Who receives your data?

Within our company, only those persons and departments (e.g. specialist department, works council, representative body for severely disabled employees, etc.) receive your personal data who are involved in the decision regarding your recruitment.

 

Applications with a specific job reference (direct applications)

If you have applied for a specific position, your data will be made available to the department posting the vacancy and to the responsible HR department.

 

Applications without a specific job reference (unsolicited applications)

If you have registered with NETZSCH without a specific job reference, your data will be made accessible to both central HR departments and decentralized HR departments of the group of companies, provided that vacancies there match your applicant profile.

In addition, we use various service providers to fulfill our contractual and legal obligations. Extensive contractual provisions have also been made with these service providers regarding data protection. Under data protection law, these also apply in full to subcontractors.

Data processing for application procedures has been partially outsourced to external service providers, SmartRecruiters Inc, 166 Geary St, San Francisco, CA 94108, USA (applicant data portal), Talent Solutions GmbH, Kölblgasse 2, 1030 Vienna, Austria (talent pool). A contract for order processing has been concluded with each of these companies.

 

Applicant portal SmartRecruiters

The technology for our applicant portal is called “SmartRecruiters” and is provided by SmartRecruiters Inc, 166 Geary St, San Francisco, CA 94108, USA.

You can set up a personal account there (“applicant portal”) to manage job vacancies and have an overview of your applications to us. To use the applicant portal at https://my.smartrecruiters.com/, you can register via the e-mail you received after applying or to obtain your consent. To register, you will need your e-mail address and a password. Your profile will be made available and visible to us. You may receive job notifications from us. SmartRecruiters uses third-party providers for statistical analyses, technical support and data hosting.

We use Smartrecruiters with the AI component “SmartAssistant”. SmartAssistant does not replace human decision-making for us. The function compares the applicant’s CV/profile with the job posting and provides a match score that calculates how many of the required skills and qualifications the applicant meets, rather than evaluating the applicant per se.
When calculating the match score, SmartRecruiters only uses education, skills and work history. Other applicant characteristics are not taken into account when calculating the score.

Further information on data protection at SmartRecruiters: https://www.smartrecruiters.com/de/legal/candidate-privacy-policy/august-13-2020/

 

myVeeta talent pool

The technology for our talent pool is called “myVeeta” and is provided by Talent Solutions GmbH, Kölblgasse 2, 1030 Vienna, Austria. When registering in our talent pool, you therefore create a confidential, private myVeeta account – if you do not already have one – and instruct myVeeta to make your data available to our company.

You can change, add to or delete your data at any time. Your data will only be deleted when you leave our talent pool. By doing so, you also revoke your consent to the storage/use (processing) of your data by us.

You can use your myVeeta access (see myVeeta.com/meinedaten) to change/delete your data at any time.

GENERAL NOTES

We link to our presence in social networks on this website. For this purpose, we have linked a graphic of the respective network.

No data is transferred to the operators of the social networks when you load our website, but only when you actively follow the link to our profile on the respective social network.

When you visit our profile page on a social network, the operator of the social network may place cookies on your device, regardless of whether you have an account with the network or are logged in to it. Cookies are data packets that mark the user’s end device with a specific identifier. Cookies are primarily used to display personalized advertising to visitors to social networks, including our profile pages.

This is done, for example, by displaying advertisements from advertising partners of the social network whose websites the user has previously visited on the pages of the social network. Cookies also make it possible to compile statistics about the use of our profile page (e.g. number of page views, user categories).

If we receive such statistical analyses from the operator of the social network, the data is anonymized by the operator beforehand, i.e. it is not possible for us to assign usage data to an individual user. However, if you are logged in to the social network, the operator of the social network may be able to assign the visit to our profile on the social network to your existing account there.

We have no influence on which data is collected and transmitted by the operator of the social network, to which third party recipients the data is transmitted by the operator of the social network and how long the data is stored by the operator of the social network. Please refer to the privacy policy of the respective social network.
