General information

The fol­lowing infor­ma­ti­on will pro­vi­de you with an easy to navi­ga­te over­view of what will hap­pen with your per­so­nal data when you visit this web­site. The term “per­so­nal data” com­pri­ses all data that can be used to per­so­nal­ly iden­ti­fy you. For detail­ed infor­ma­ti­on about the sub­ject mat­ter of data pro­tec­tion, plea­se con­sult our Data Pro­tec­tion Decla­ra­ti­on, which we have inclu­ded bene­ath this copy.

Data recording on this website

Who is the responsible party for the recording of data on this website (i.e. the “controller”)?

The data on this web­site is pro­ces­sed by the ope­ra­tor of the web­site, who­se con­ta­ct infor­ma­ti­on is avail­ab­le under sec­tion “Infor­ma­ti­on Requi­red by Law” on this web­site.

How do we record your data?

We collect your data as a result of your sharing of your data with us. This may, for instance be infor­ma­ti­on you enter into our con­ta­ct form.

Other data shall be recor­ded by our IT sys­tems auto­ma­ti­cal­ly or after you con­sent to its record­ing during your web­site visit. This data com­pri­ses pri­ma­ri­ly tech­ni­cal infor­ma­ti­on (e.g. web brow­ser, ope­ra­ting sys­tem or time the site was acces­sed). This infor­ma­ti­on is recor­ded auto­ma­ti­cal­ly when you access this web­site.

What are the purposes we use your data for?

A por­ti­on of the infor­ma­ti­on is gene­ra­ted to gua­ran­tee the error free pro­vi­si­on of the web­site. Other data may be used to ana­ly­ze your user pat­terns.

3. General information and mandatory information

Data protection

The ope­ra­tors of this web­site and its pages take the pro­tec­tion of your per­so­nal data very serious­ly. Hence, we hand­le your per­so­nal data as con­fi­den­ti­al infor­ma­ti­on and in com­pli­an­ce with the sta­tu­to­ry data pro­tec­tion regu­la­ti­ons and this Data Pro­tec­tion Decla­ra­ti­on.

Whenever you use this web­site, a varie­ty of per­so­nal infor­ma­ti­on will be collec­ted. Per­so­nal data com­pri­ses data that can be used to per­so­nal­ly iden­ti­fy you. This Data Pro­tec­tion Decla­ra­ti­on exp­lains which data we collect as well as the pur­po­ses we use this data for. It also exp­lains how, and for which pur­po­se the infor­ma­ti­on is collec­ted.

We here­with advi­se you that the trans­mis­si­on of data via the Inter­net (i.e. through e‑mail com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons) may be pro­ne to secu­ri­ty gaps. It is not pos­si­ble to com­ple­te­ly pro­tect data against third-par­ty access.

Information about the responsible party (referred to as the “controller” in the GDPR)

The data pro­ces­sing con­trol­ler on this web­site is:

KLE­MA­FOL GmbH
Elbe­str. 31–33
45478 Mül­heim an der Ruhr

Pho­ne: +49 208 8284620
E‑mail: info@klemafol.de

The con­trol­ler is the natu­ral per­son or legal enti­ty that sin­gle-han­ded­ly or joint­ly with others makes decisi­ons as to the pur­po­ses of and resour­ces for the pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data (e.g. names, e‑mail addres­ses, etc.).

Storage duration

Unless a more spe­ci­fic sto­rage peri­od has been spe­ci­fied in this pri­va­cy poli­cy, your per­so­nal data will remain with us until the pur­po­se for which it was collec­ted no lon­ger app­lies. If you assert a jus­ti­fied request for dele­ti­on or revo­ke your con­sent to data pro­ces­sing, your data will be dele­ted, unless we have other legal­ly per­mis­si­ble rea­sons for sto­ring your per­so­nal data (e.g. tax or com­mer­cial law reten­ti­on peri­ods); in the lat­ter case, the dele­ti­on will take place after the­se rea­sons cea­se to app­ly.

Information on data transfer to the USA

Our web­site uses, in par­ti­cu­lar, tools from com­pa­nies based in the USA. When the­se tools are acti­ve, your per­so­nal infor­ma­ti­on may be trans­fer­red to the US ser­vers of the­se com­pa­nies. We must point out that the USA is not a safe third coun­try wit­hin the mea­ning of EU data pro­tec­tion law. US com­pa­nies are requi­red to release per­so­nal data to secu­ri­ty aut­ho­ri­ties without you as the data sub­ject being able to take legal action against this. The pos­si­bi­li­ty can­not the­re­fo­re be exclu­ded that US aut­ho­ri­ties (e.g. secret ser­vices) may pro­cess, eva­lua­te and per­ma­nent­ly store your data on US ser­vers for moni­to­ring pur­po­ses. We have no influ­ence over the­se pro­ces­sing acti­vi­ties.

Revocation of your consent to the processing of data

A wide ran­ge of data pro­ces­sing tran­sac­tions are pos­si­ble only sub­ject to your express con­sent. You can also revo­ke at any time any con­sent you have alrea­dy given us. This shall be without pre­ju­di­ce to the law­ful­ness of any data collec­tion that occur­red pri­or to your revo­ca­ti­on.

Right to object to the collection of data in special cases; right to object to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

IN THE EVENT THAT DATA ARE PRO­CES­SED ON THE BASIS OF ART. 6 SECT. 1 LIT. E OR F GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO AT ANY TIME OBJECT TO THE PRO­CES­SING OF YOUR PER­SO­NAL DATA BASED ON GROUNDS ARI­SING FROM YOUR UNI­QUE SITUA­TI­ON. THIS ALSO APP­LIES TO ANY PRO­FILING BASED ON THE­SE PRO­VI­SI­ONS. TO DETER­MI­NE THE LEGAL BASIS, ON WHICH ANY PRO­CES­SING OF DATA IS BASED, PLEA­SE CON­SULT THIS DATA PRO­TEC­TION DECLA­RA­TI­ON. IF YOU LOG AN OBJEC­TION, WE WILL NO LON­GER PRO­CESS YOUR AFFEC­TED PER­SO­NAL DATA, UNLESS WE ARE IN A POSI­TI­ON TO PRE­SENT COM­PEL­LING PRO­TEC­TION WORTHY GROUNDS FOR THE PRO­CES­SING OF YOUR DATA, THAT OUT­WEIGH YOUR INTE­RESTS, RIGHTS AND FREE­DOMS OR IF THE PUR­PO­SE OF THE PRO­CES­SING IS THE CLAI­MING, EXER­CIS­ING OR DEFENCE OF LEGAL ENTI­T­LE­MENTS (OBJEC­TION PUR­SUANT TO ART. 21 SECT. 1 GDPR).

IF YOUR PER­SO­NAL DATA IS BEING PRO­CES­SED IN ORDER TO ENGA­GE IN DIRECT ADVER­TI­SING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO AT ANY TIME OBJECT TO THE PRO­CES­SING OF YOUR AFFEC­TED PER­SO­NAL DATA FOR THE PUR­PO­SES OF SUCH ADVER­TI­SING. THIS ALSO APP­LIES TO PRO­FILING TO THE EXTENT THAT IT IS AFFI­LIA­TED WITH SUCH DIRECT ADVER­TI­SING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PER­SO­NAL DATA WILL SUB­SE­QUENT­LY NO LON­GER BE USED FOR DIRECT ADVER­TI­SING PUR­PO­SES (OBJEC­TION PUR­SUANT TO ART. 21 SECT. 2 GDPR).

Right to log a complaint with the competent supervisory agency

In the event of vio­la­ti­ons of the GDPR, data sub­jects are enti­t­led to log a com­p­laint with a super­vi­so­ry agen­cy, in par­ti­cu­lar in the mem­ber sta­te whe­re they usual­ly main­tain their domic­i­le, place of work or at the place whe­re the alle­ged vio­la­ti­on occur­red. The right to log a com­p­laint is in effect regard­less of any other admi­nis­tra­ti­ve or court pro­cee­dings avail­ab­le as legal recour­ses.

Right to data portability

You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we auto­ma­ti­cal­ly pro­cess on the basis of your con­sent or in order to ful­fil a con­tract be han­ded over to you or a third par­ty in a com­mon­ly used, machi­ne read­a­ble for­mat. If you should demand the direct trans­fer of the data to ano­t­her con­trol­ler, this will be done only if it is tech­ni­cal­ly fea­si­ble.

SSL and/or TLS encryption

For secu­ri­ty rea­sons and to pro­tect the trans­mis­si­on of con­fi­den­ti­al con­tent, such as purcha­se orders or inqui­ries you sub­mit to us as the web­site ope­ra­tor, this web­site uses eit­her an SSL or a TLS encryp­ti­on pro­gram. You can reco­gni­ze an encryp­ted con­nec­tion by che­cking whe­ther the address line of the brow­ser swit­ches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearan­ce of the lock icon in the brow­ser line.

If the SSL or TLS encryp­ti­on is acti­va­ted, data you trans­mit to us can­not be read by third par­ties.

Information about, rectification and eradication of data

Wit­hin the scope of the app­li­ca­ble sta­tu­to­ry pro­vi­si­ons, you have the right to at any time demand infor­ma­ti­on about your archi­ved per­so­nal data, their source and reci­pi­ents as well as the pur­po­se of the pro­ces­sing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data rec­ti­fied or era­di­ca­ted. If you have ques­ti­ons about this sub­ject mat­ter or any other ques­ti­ons about per­so­nal data, plea­se do not hesi­ta­te to con­ta­ct us at any time at the address pro­vi­ded in sec­tion “Infor­ma­ti­on Requi­red by Law.”

Right to demand processing restrictions

You have the right to demand the impo­si­ti­on of restric­tions as far as the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data is con­cer­ned. To do so, you may con­ta­ct us at any time at the address pro­vi­ded in sec­tion “Infor­ma­ti­on Requi­red by Law.” The right to demand restric­tion of pro­ces­sing app­lies in the fol­lowing cases:

  • In the event that you should dis­pu­te the cor­rect­ness of your data archi­ved by us, we will usual­ly need some time to veri­fy this claim. During the time that this inves­ti­ga­ti­on is ongo­ing, you have the right to demand that we restrict the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data.
  • If the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data was/is con­duc­ted in an unlaw­ful man­ner, you have the opti­on to demand the restric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your data in lieu of deman­ding the era­di­ca­ti­on of this data.
  • If we do not need your per­so­nal data any lon­ger and you need it to exer­cise, defend or claim legal enti­t­le­ments, you have the right to demand the restric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data ins­tead of its era­di­ca­ti­on.
  • If you have rai­sed an objec­tion pur­suant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be weig­hed against each other. As long as it has not been deter­mi­ned who­se inte­rests pre­vail, you have the right to demand a restric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data.

If you have restric­ted the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data, the­se data – with the excep­ti­on of their archi­ving – may be pro­ces­sed only sub­ject to your con­sent or to claim, exer­cise or defend legal enti­t­le­ments or to pro­tect the rights of other natu­ral per­sons or legal enti­ties or for important public inte­rest rea­sons cited by the Euro­pean Uni­on or a mem­ber sta­te of the EU.

Rejection of unsolicited e‑mails

We here­with object to the use of con­ta­ct infor­ma­ti­on publis­hed in con­junc­tion with the man­da­to­ry infor­ma­ti­on to be pro­vi­ded in sec­tion “Infor­ma­ti­on Requi­red by Law” to send us pro­mo­tio­nal and infor­ma­ti­on mate­ri­al that we have not express­ly reques­ted. The ope­ra­tors of this web­site and its pages reser­ve the express right to take legal action in the event of the unso­li­ci­ted sen­ding of pro­mo­tio­nal infor­ma­ti­on, for instance via SPAM messages.

4. Recording of data on this website

Cookies

Our web­sites and pages use what the indus­try refers to as “coo­kies.” Coo­kies are small text files that do not cau­se any dama­ge to your device. They are eit­her stored tem­pora­ri­ly for the dura­ti­on of a ses­si­on (ses­si­on coo­kies) or they are per­ma­nent­ly archi­ved on your device (per­ma­nent coo­kies). Ses­si­on coo­kies are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted once you ter­mi­na­te your visit. Per­ma­nent coo­kies remain archi­ved on your device until you actively dele­te them or they are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly era­di­ca­ted by your web brow­ser.

In some cases, it is pos­si­ble that third-par­ty coo­kies are stored on your device once you enter our site (third-par­ty coo­kies). The­se coo­kies enab­le you or us to take advan­ta­ge of cer­tain ser­vices offe­red by the third par­ty (e.g. coo­kies for the pro­ces­sing of pay­ment ser­vices).

Coo­kies have a varie­ty of func­tions. Many coo­kies are tech­ni­cal­ly essen­ti­al sin­ce cer­tain web­site func­tions would not work in the absence of the coo­kies (e.g. the shop­ping cart func­tion or the dis­play of vide­os). The pur­po­se of other coo­kies may be the ana­ly­sis of user pat­terns or the dis­play of pro­mo­tio­nal messages.

Coo­kies, which are requi­red for the per­for­mance of elec­tro­nic com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on tran­sac­tions (requi­red coo­kies) or for the pro­vi­si­on of cer­tain func­tions you want to use (func­tio­n­al coo­kies, e.g. for the shop­ping cart func­tion) or tho­se that are necessa­ry for the opti­miz­a­ti­on of the web­site (e.g. coo­kies that pro­vi­de mea­sura­ble insights into the web audi­ence), shall be stored on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR, unless a dif­fe­rent legal basis is cited. The ope­ra­tor of the web­site has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the sto­rage of coo­kies to ensu­re the tech­ni­cal­ly error free and opti­mi­zed pro­vi­si­on of the operator’s ser­vices. If your con­sent to the sto­rage of the coo­kies has been reques­ted, the respec­ti­ve coo­kies are stored exclu­si­ve­ly on the basis of the con­sent obtai­ned (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR); this con­sent may be revo­ked at any time.

You have the opti­on to set up your brow­ser in such a man­ner that you will be noti­fied any time coo­kies are pla­ced and to per­mit the accep­t­ance of coo­kies only in spe­ci­fic cases. You may also exclu­de the accep­t­ance of coo­kies in cer­tain cases or in gene­ral or acti­va­te the dele­te func­tion for the auto­ma­tic era­di­ca­ti­on of coo­kies when the brow­ser clo­ses. If coo­kies are deac­ti­va­ted, the func­tions of this web­site may be limi­ted.

In the event that third-par­ty coo­kies are used or if coo­kies are used for ana­ly­ti­cal pur­po­ses, we will sepa­r­ate­ly noti­fy you in con­junc­tion with this Data Pro­tec­tion Poli­cy and, if app­li­ca­ble, ask for your con­sent.

Server log files

The pro­vi­der of this web­site and its pages auto­ma­ti­cal­ly collects and stores infor­ma­ti­on in so-cal­led ser­ver log files, which your brow­ser com­mu­ni­ca­tes to us auto­ma­ti­cal­ly. The infor­ma­ti­on com­pri­ses:

  • The type and ver­si­on of brow­ser used
  • The used ope­ra­ting sys­tem
  • Refer­rer URL
  • The host­na­me of the acces­sing com­pu­ter
  • The time of the ser­ver inqui­ry
  • The IP address

This data is not mer­ged with other data sources.

This data is recor­ded on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The ope­ra­tor of the web­site has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the tech­ni­cal­ly error free depic­tion and the opti­miz­a­ti­on of the operator’s web­site. In order to achie­ve this, ser­ver log files must be recor­ded.

Request by e‑mail, telephone or fax

If you con­ta­ct us by e‑mail, tele­pho­ne or fax, your request, inclu­ding all resul­ting per­so­nal data (name, request) will be stored and pro­ces­sed by us for the pur­po­se of pro­ces­sing your request. We do not pass the­se data on without your con­sent.

The­se data are pro­ces­sed on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR if your inqui­ry is rela­ted to the ful­fill­ment of a con­tract or is requi­red for the per­for­mance of pre-con­trac­tu­al mea­su­res. In all other cases, the data are pro­ces­sed on the basis of our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the effec­ti­ve hand­ling of inqui­ries sub­mit­ted to us (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on the basis of your con­sent (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR) if it has been obtai­ned.

The data sent by you to us via con­ta­ct requests remain with us until you request us to dele­te, revo­ke your con­sent to the sto­rage or the pur­po­se for the data sto­rage lap­ses (e.g. after com­ple­ti­on of your request). Man­da­to­ry sta­tu­to­ry pro­vi­si­ons — in par­ti­cu­lar sta­tu­to­ry reten­ti­on peri­ods — remain unaf­fec­ted.

5. Plug-ins and Tools

Google Web Fonts

To ensu­re that fonts used on this web­site are uni­form, this web­site uses so-cal­led Web Fonts pro­vi­ded by Goog­le. When you access a page on our web­site, your brow­ser will load the requi­red web fonts into your brow­ser cache to cor­rect­ly dis­play text and fonts.

To do this, the brow­ser you use will have to estab­lish a con­nec­tion with Google’s ser­vers. As a result, Goog­le will learn that your IP address was used to access this web­site. The use of Goog­le Web Fonts is based on Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in a uni­form pre­sen­ta­ti­on of the font on the operator’s web­site. If a respec­ti­ve decla­ra­ti­on of con­sent has been obtai­ned (e.g. con­sent to the archi­ving of coo­kies), the data will be pro­ces­sed exclu­si­ve­ly on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR. Any such con­sent may be revo­ked at any time.

If your brow­ser should not sup­port Web Fonts, a stan­dard font instal­led on your com­pu­ter will be used.

For more infor­ma­ti­on on Goog­le Web Fonts, plea­se fol­low this link: https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and con­sult Google’s Data Pri­va­cy Decla­ra­ti­on under: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

Adobe Fonts

In order to ensu­re the uni­form depic­tion of cer­tain fonts, this web­site uses fonts cal­led Ado­be Fonts pro­vi­ded by Ado­be Sys­tems Incor­po­ra­ted, 345 Park Ave­nue, San Jose, CA 95110–2704, USA (Ado­be).

When you access pages of this web­site, your brow­ser will auto­ma­ti­cal­ly load the requi­red fonts direct­ly from the Ado­be site to be able to dis­play them cor­rect­ly on your device. As a result, your brow­ser will estab­lish a con­nec­tion with Adobe’s ser­vers in the United Sta­tes. Hence, Ado­be learns that your IP address was used to access this web­site. Accord­ing to the infor­ma­ti­on pro­vi­ded by Ado­be, no coo­kies will be stored in con­junc­tion with the pro­vi­si­on of the fonts.

Data are stored and ana­ly­zed on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in a uni­form pre­sen­ta­ti­on of the font on the operator’s web­site. If a respec­ti­ve decla­ra­ti­on of con­sent has been obtai­ned (e.g. con­sent to the archi­ving of coo­kies), the data will be pro­ces­sed exclu­si­ve­ly on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a DGDPR. Any such con­sent may be revo­ked at any time.

Font Awesome

This page uses Font Awe­so­me for the uni­form repre­sen­ta­ti­on of fonts and sym­bols. Pro­vi­der is Fon­ti­cons, Inc. 6 Por­ter Road Apart­ment 3R, Cam­bridge, Mas­sa­chu­setts, USA.

When you call up a page, your brow­ser loads the requi­red fonts into its brow­ser cache to dis­play texts, fonts and sym­bols cor­rect­ly. For this pur­po­se, the brow­ser you use must con­nect to the ser­vers of Font Awe­so­me. This allows Font Awe­so­me to know that your IP address has been used to access this web­site. The use of Font Awe­so­me is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. We have a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the uni­form pre­sen­ta­ti­on of the typeface on our web­site. If con­sent has been reques­ted (e.g. con­sent to the sto­rage of coo­kies), pro­ces­sing will be car­ri­ed out exclu­si­ve­ly on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR; con­sent may be revo­ked at any time.

If your brow­ser does not sup­port Font Awe­so­me, a stan­dard font from your com­pu­ter will be used.

6. Custom Services

Job Applications

We offer web­site visi­tors the oppor­tu­ni­ty to sub­mit job app­li­ca­ti­ons to us (e.g. via e‑mail, via pos­tal ser­vices on by sub­mit­ting the online job app­li­ca­ti­on form). Below, we will brief you on the scope, pur­po­se and use of the per­so­nal data collec­ted from you in con­junc­tion with the app­li­ca­ti­on pro­cess. We assu­re you that the collec­tion, pro­ces­sing and use of your data will occur in com­pli­an­ce with the app­li­ca­ble data pri­va­cy rights and all other sta­tu­to­ry pro­vi­si­ons and that your data will always be trea­ted as strict­ly con­fi­den­ti­al.

Scope and purpose of the collection of data

If you sub­mit a job app­li­ca­ti­on to us, we will pro­cess any affi­lia­ted per­so­nal data (e.g. con­ta­ct and com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons data, app­li­ca­ti­on docu­ments, notes taken during job inter­views, etc.), if they are requi­red to make a decisi­on con­cer­ning the estab­lish­ment or an employ­ment rela­ti­ons­hip. The legal grounds for the afo­re­men­tio­ned are § 26 New GDPR accord­ing to Ger­man Law (Nego­tia­ti­on of an Employ­ment Rela­ti­ons­hip), Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR (Gene­ral Con­tract Nego­tia­ti­ons) and – pro­vi­ded you have given us your con­sent – Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR. You may revo­ke any con­sent given at any time. Wit­hin our com­pa­ny, your per­so­nal data will only be shared with indi­vi­du­als who are invol­ved in the pro­ces­sing of your job app­li­ca­ti­on.

If your job app­li­ca­ti­on should result in your recruit­ment, the data you have sub­mit­ted will be archi­ved on the grounds of § 26 New GDPR and Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR for the pur­po­se of imple­men­ting the employ­ment rela­ti­ons­hip in our data pro­ces­sing sys­tem.

Data Archiving Period

If we are unab­le to make you a job offer or you reject a job offer or with­draw your app­li­ca­ti­on, we reser­ve the right to retain the data you have sub­mit­ted on the basis of our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) for up to 6 mon­ths from the end of the app­li­ca­ti­on pro­ce­du­re (rejec­tion or with­dra­wal of the app­li­ca­ti­on). After­wards the data will be dele­ted, and the phy­si­cal app­li­ca­ti­on docu­ments will be des­troy­ed. The sto­rage ser­ves in par­ti­cu­lar as evi­dence in the event of a legal dis­pu­te. If it is evi­dent that the data will be requi­red after the expi­ry of the 6‑month peri­od (e.g. due to an impen­ding or pen­ding legal dis­pu­te), dele­ti­on will only take place when the pur­po­se for fur­ther sto­rage no lon­ger app­lies.

Lon­ger sto­rage may also take place if you have given your agree­ment (Arti­cle 6 (1) (a) GDPR) or if sta­tu­to­ry data reten­ti­on requi­re­ments pre­clu­de the dele­ti­on.
