Withdrawal of your consent to data processing

Many instances of data processing are possible only with your express consent. You can withdraw any consent already given at any time. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of data processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

Right to object to data collection in special cases and to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)

IF DATA PROCESSING IS CARRIED OUT ON THE BASIS OF POINT (E) OR (F) OF ART 6(1) GDPR, YOU WILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA AT ANY TIME FOR REASONS ARISING FROM YOUR SPECIFIC SITUATION, INCLUDING PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS. THE RESPECTIVE LEGAL BASIS ON WHICH PROCESSING IS BASED CAN BE FOUND IN THIS PRIVACY POLICY. IF YOU RAISE OBJECTIONS, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR THESE REASONS UNLESS WE HAVE PROOF OF COMPELLING AND LEGITIMATE REASONS FOR PROCESSING WHICH PREVAIL OVER YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS, OR WHERE THE PROCESSING IS NECESSARY FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT, EXERCISE OR DEFENCE OF LEGAL CLAIMS (OBJECTION ACCORDING TO ART. 21(2) GDPR).

In the case of violations of the GDPR, the persons concerned have a right to lodge a complaint to a supervisory authority, in particular in the member state of their habitual residence, place of work or place of the suspected violation. The right to lodge a complaint is without prejudice to any other administrative or legal remedies.

Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the data which we process automatically based on your consent or in the performance of a contract or have them transmitted to a third party in a commonly used, machine-readable format. Where you request the direct transmission of the data to another controller, this will be done only where technically feasible.

Information, deletion and correction

Under applicable legal provisions, you have the right, at any time and free of charge, of access to your personal data stored by us and to information about their source and recipients and the purposes of the data processing and, where appropriate, a right to rectification or erasure of these data. Regarding this and other questions concerning personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice.

Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted. Regarding this, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice. The restriction of processing exists in the following cases:

  • If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the verification you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted.
  • If the processing of your personal data was / is carried out unlawfully, you may request that the data processing be restricted instead of deleted.
  • If we no longer need your personal data, but you do need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request that we restrict the processing of your personal data instead of deleting it.
  • If you have lodged an objection under Art. 21(1) GDPR, a balance must be made between your interests and ours. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, such data may be processed – apart from their storage – only with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

5. Plugins and tools

Google Maps

The page my.fleximaus.de uses the map service Google Maps via an API. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

To use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to save your IP address. This information is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transmission.

The use of Google Maps is in the interest of our customers and serves to provide an overview of the placement of their wind turbines. However, you have an option not to activate the Google Maps service and to use our services so that you do not suffer any disadvantages. Only the map display of their wind farm in then not possible. The legal basis is therefore your consent to point (a) of Art. 6(1) GDPR; this consent is voluntary and can be revoked at any time.

You can find further information about how user data are handled in Google’s privacy policy at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

6. Own services

Handling of applicant data

We offer you the opportunity to apply to us (e. g. by email or post). In the following, we inform you about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected as part of the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing and use of your data will be carried out in accordance with applicable data protection law and all other statutory provisions and that your data will be treated in strict confidence.

Scope and purpose of data collection

If you send us an application, we process your associated personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes taken during interviews, etc.) to the extent that this is necessary to decide on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is Section 26 BDSG-neu [new German Federal Data Protection Act] under German law (initiation of an employment relationship), point (b) of Art. 6(1) GDPR (general contract initiation) and – if you have given your consent – point (a) of Art. 6(1) GDPR. The consent can be revoked at any time. Your personal data will only be passed on within our company to persons who are involved in processing your application.

If the application is successful, the data submitted by you will be stored in our data processing systems on the basis of Section 26 BDSG-neu and point (b) of Art. 6(1) GDPR for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship.

Retention period of the data

If we are unable to provide you with a job offer, if you reject a job offer or withdraw your application, we reserve the right to retain the data you have provided on the basis of our legitimate interests (point (f) of Art. 6(1) GDPR) for up to 6 months from the end of the application process (rejection or withdrawal of the application). The data is then erased and the physical application documents are 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 6-month period has expired (e. g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), the data will only be erased when the purpose for continued storage no longer applies.

Longer storage may also take place if you have given your consent (point (a) of Art. 6(1) GDPR) or if legal storage obligations prevent erasure.

Our social media presence

Data processing by social networks

We have publicly accessible profiles in social networks. You can find details about the social networks used by us below.

Social networks such as Facebook, Twitter etc. can usually analyse your user behaviour comprehensively if you visit their website or a website with integrated social media contents (e.g. “Like” buttons or advertising banners). When our social media presences are visited, numerous processing operations are triggered that are relevant to data protection. In detail:

If you are logged into your social media account and you visit our social media presence, the operator of the social media portal can allocate this visit to your user account. However, your personal data may also be collected if you are not logged in or if you do not have an account with the respective social media portal. In this case, your data may be collected e. g. via cookies which are stored on your terminal device or by recording your IP address.

By means of the data collected in such a way, the social media portal operators can create user profiles where your preferences and interests are recorded. Interest-related advertising can thus be shown to you inside and outside the respective social media presence. If you have an account with the respective social network, the interest-related advertising can be shown on all devices where you are signed in or have been signed in.

Please also note that we are not able to reproduce all processing steps on the social medial portals. Depending on the provider, further processing operations may therefore be carried out by the social media portal operators. You can find more details in the terms of use and data protection regulations of the relevant social media portals.

Legal basis

Our social media appearances are intended to guarantee as comprehensive an Internet presence as possible. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of point (f) of Art. 6(1) of the GDPR. The analysis procedures initiated by the social networks may be based on deviating legal bases that need to be stated by the social network operators (e. g. consent within the meaning of point (a) of Art. 6(1) of the GDPR).

Controller and exercise of rights

If you visit any of our social media appearances (e. g. Facebook), we are responsible for the data processing operations triggered by this visit jointly with the social media platform operator. You can generally invoke your rights (access, correction, erasure, restriction of processing, data portability and complaint) both against us and against the operator of the respective social media portal (e. g. Facebook).

Please note that, despite our joint responsibility with the social media portal operators, we cannot fully influence the data processing operations performed by the social media portals. Our options significantly depend on the corporate policy of the respective provider.

Retention period

The data directly collected by us via the social media presence are erased by our systems as soon as the purpose for their storage no longer applies, you demand that we erase them, you revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for the data retention no longer applies. Stored cookies remain on your device until you erase them. Mandatory statutory provisions – particularly retention periods – remain unaffected.

We have no influence on the storage duration of your data that are stored by the social network operators for their own purposes. You can obtain more details directly from the social network operators (e. g in their privacy statement, see below).
