Data protection declaration

1. General Information

The fact that you have shared information with us results in its collection. For example, this can be data that you enter in a contact form. Other data is automatically collected by our IT systems when you visit the website. This is mainly technical data (e.g., web browser, operating system or time of page view). This data is automatically collected as soon as you visit our website. Some of the data is collected in order to ensure the smooth running of the website. Other data may be used to analyze your user behavior.

You have the right, at any time and free of charge, to receive information about the origin, recipients and purpose of your stored personal data. You also have the right to request the correction, blocking or erasure of this data. For details, see section 8 of this declaration. You can contact our data protection officer at any time with regard to this and other questions on the subject of data protection. Furthermore, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority, the Bavarian State Office for Data Protection Supervision (Bayerischen Landesamt für Datenschutzaufsicht: www.lda.bayern.de).

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g., e-mail communications) can present security vulnerabilities. It is not possible to completely protect data from access by third parties.

The responsible body for data processing on this website is:

ASC GmbH Ledererstr. 10
D-85276 Pfaffenhofen
Tel.: +49 8441/786547-0 E-Mail: office@asc-sensors.de

The responsible body is the natural or legal person who, alone or jointly with others, decides on the purposes and means regarding the processing of personal data (e.g., names, e-mail addresses, etc.).

2. Contact details of the data protection officer

The protection of your personal data is of great importance to us. To reflect this importance, we have commissioned a consulting firm specializing in data protection and data security to handle these key issues.

These are the contact details of the consulting firm:

3. Data collection on our website

a) General data collection (usage data)
Your web browser transmits usage data to our web server from the moment you first visit our web pages. This is the only way our web server can display the web page for your web browser. This usage data is given in the HTTP/S header, and is automatically sent by you and used for the duration of the page view.

It includes the following:

  •  name of the viewed web page or file
  • date and time of page visit
  • time zone difference in relation to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • volume of data transferred
  • successful visit message (access status/HTTP status code)
  • browser type, including version and language, and the operating system
  • referrer URL (previously visited page)
  • IP address and requesting provider

The aforementioned data is technically necessary to establish a connection to the website and is also used for administrative purposes and to evaluate system security and stability. The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6(1), sentence 1(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest stems from the purpose of data collection listed above. We do not use the collected data to draw conclusions about you as an individual. 

If you make an inquiry regarding a contractual relationship or contract initiation, data is processed according to Art. 6(1), sentence 1(b) GDPR. In all other cases we process your data based on your consent, according to Art. 6(1), sentence 1(a) GDPR. 

You can contact us either via our website contact form or by telephone, fax, e-mail or an alternative means of communication. Provision of your personal data is voluntary. The data you voluntarily provide also allows us to process the time of your inquiry as well as, for technical reasons, your usage data sent in connection with your means of communication, such as your telephone number or e-mail address. 

We use the collected data for our personal communications with you, and for contract initiation and performance. The personal data collected by us via the contact form will be deleted after your inquiry has been processed and, at the latest, following expiry of the legal retention requirements.

Please note that we may send your contact details to our distribution partners if you have submitted a technical inquiry to us. We only transmit personal data to third parties if this is necessary to perform the contract, for example, to the bank commissioned with payment processing.

No further transmission of your data will take place unless you have given your express permission. Your data will not be passed on to third parties (e.g., for advertising purposes) without your express consent.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR, which authorizes the processing of data in order to perform a contract or for the purpose of pre-contractual arrangements.

Customer data is deleted after completion of the order or upon termination of the business relationship. Legal retention periods remain unaffected. 

Please note with regard to e-mails that, despite our comprehensive technical and organizational measures to protect your data, communication via e-mail can be subject to security vulnerabilities. If you want to send us confidential information, we advise you to use an encrypted transfer method, for example PGP (PGPkey). 

b) Newsletter
The legal basis for the processing of your personal data transmitted when contacting us is Art. 6(1)(f) EU-GDPR. Art. 6(1)(b) EU GDPR is an additional legal basis for the processing of your personal data if the purpose of you contacting us is to conclude a contract.

Processing of the personal data you send when contacting us serves us solely to process your request.

Your personal data will be deleted as soon as the purpose for which it was processed has been achieved and it is no longer required. This is the case for personal data sent when contacting us if your request has been processed and statutory retention periods do not prevent erasure.

You have the possibility, at any time, to object to any future processing of your personal data for contact purposes. However, in this case we will not be able to further process your request. In this case, all personal data stored for contact purposes will be erased unless legal retention periods prevent its erasure.

c) Cookies
Our website uses cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies serve to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are “session cookies”. They are automatically cleared at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser on your next visit.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the use of cookies, to accept cookies only in individual cases, to deny cookies in specific cases or in

general and to activate the automatic clearing of cookies when you close your browser. If you disable cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.

Cookies required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain desired functions are stored according to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. As a website operator, we have a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies in order to provide optimized and technically error-free services. Insofar as other cookies are stored (e.g., cookies that analyze your surfing habits), these are treated separately in this data protection declaration.

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data with regard to the use of cookies and comparable technologies for the purpose of improved comfort, website optimization and the analysis of user behavior is your declared consent according to Art. 6(1)(a) EU-GDPR.

By clicking “accept cookies”, you can give your consent to accept only the necessary cookies or, if applicable, additional cookies so that we can use marketing cookies to process your surfing behavior across websites and devices for the purpose of improved comfort, website optimization, user behavior analysis and the display of personalized advertising (pseudonymized data). Please note that the United States (USA) is a third country that does not offer an adequate level of protection for your personal data. For example, US authorities may access your data, stored by our service providers, without special reason and without judicial permission. This consent is voluntary and is not necessary for the use of our website. Within the data protection declaration, you can disable individual cookie categories and thus withdraw your consent with future effect at any time. The use of “technically necessary cookies” – i.e.: cookies that make it easier for you to use our websites and mobile apps and that are indeed required for certain of their functions – is absolutely essential and therefore does not require consent.

You can change your consent regarding cookie settings on our website via the “cookie settings” link.


d) Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited, (Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland). Our usage includes the “Universal Analytics” operating mode. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous User-ID and thus analyze the activities of a user across devices.

Google Analytics uses “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within the Member States of the European Union or within other contracting countries to the Agreement throughout the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there instead.

The IP address provided by your browser in this context will not be combined with other Google data. Google will use this information on our behalf in order to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide us with additional services related to the website and Internet use. Our legitimate interest in
data processing stems from these purposes. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art.15(3) of the German Telemedia Act (TMG) or Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. Sessions and campaigns time out after a certain length of time. By default, sessions are closed after 30 minutes without activity and campaigns after six months. The time limit for campaigns may not exceed two years. For more information on terms of use and data protection, please visithttps://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.htmlorhttps://https://policies.google.com/?hl=en.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser; however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie relating to your use of the website (including your IP address), and from processing this data, by downloading and installing the browser add-on. Opt-out cookies prevent the future collection of your data when you visit this website. To prevent Universal Analytics from collecting data across multiple devices, you must opt-out on all systems in use. Click here to set the opt-out cookie: Disable Google Analytics


e) Google Tag Manager

This website uses Google Tag Manager. Google Tag Manager is a solution that allows marketers to manage website tags via an interface. The Tag Manager tool itself (which implements the tags) is a cookie-free domain and does not collect any personal data. The tool triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If deactivation has been performed at domain or cookie level, this will remain valid for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager. http://www.google.de/tagmanager/use-policy.html Please click here to be excluded from Google Tag Manager.
f) Google Search Console
This website uses Google Search Console. Google Search Console is a service provided free of charge by Google for the monitoring and analysis of your own websites. This enables an authorized user to detect page link errors, to see the pages which contain links to the user’s website, to determine (anonymously) the number of clicks, the country of origin and device used (desktop device, tablet or cell phone) and to see which images have been viewed and how often. However, no personal data is collected, stored or displayed.

g) Digital portals

ASC uses various digital portals, e.g., direct industries, diribo and geomares, through which requests for information or offers can be made. We also store your data within this context so that we can send you the requested information. We do not use your data for any other purposes and do not pass it on to third parties.

For security reasons, and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries submitted to us as the website operator, this website uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address bar of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the padlock symbol in your browser bar.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.


h) Social media plugins

Our website uses “social media plugins”. Currently, we mainly use the LinkedIn platform button. Data, including personal data, can be sent via these plugins to the respective service providers (including those outside Germany or Europe) and used by them if necessary.

Your personal data is only transferred when you click on the social media plugin. This means you also have full control over the transfer of your personal data. The social media plugin remains active until you click on it again to deactivate it.

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data by these “social media plugins”, e.g. LinkedIn, is your declared consent according to Art. 6(1)(a) EU-GDPR.

The purpose of our processing your personal data in connection with the sharing and recommendation of services on our website is to promote our services to your contact network.

4. Newsletter

With your consent you can subscribe to our newsletter, in which we inform you about our latest special offers. The advertised goods and services are specified in the declaration of consent.

To subscribe to our newsletter, we use what is known as a double opt-in procedure. This means that after you subscribe, we send an e-mail to the address you have provided, in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm within seven days, your subscription is automatically erased. If you confirm your wish to receive the newsletter, we will store your e-mail address until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. The data is stored solely for the purpose of sending you the newsletter. Furthermore, we store the IP addresses you use and the times of subscription and confirmation in order to prevent any misuse of your personal data.

Once you have confirmed your subscription, we store this data for the purpose of sending you the newsletter. The legal basis for doing so is Art. 6(1), sentence 1(a) GDPR.

5. Data processing for applications

If you have submitted application documents to us, we will use the personal data you have provided for the following purposes:

  • Making decisions on entering into and implementing an employment relationship
  • Communicating with you
  • Processing payments

 

We process the information you provide us with via your application. This usually includes your covering letter, resume, certificates, correspondence and notes regarding any oral communications. We do not pass on your application to third parties, nor do we transfer it to third countries or international organizations.

We only collect special categories of personal data, in accordance with Art. 9 GDPR, if you send such data to us. If it is relevant to the application process, we process it together with your other applicant data.

Without your data we will not be able to make an appropriate decision regarding your application. Decisions are made personally and are not automatically processed.

The storage period for applications subjected to no further processing is three months, as per Art. 6(1)(b)(f) GDPR. After this time has elapsed, your personal data will be erased unless we need this data for the continued fulfilment of an employment contract. Application documents submitted by postal mail will be returned or destroyed after three months. There may be deviations from this policy arising from your explicit consent or for legal reasons, as per Art. 6(1)(a)(c) GDPR.

In the event of reimbursement of costs or other tax transactions, we store the necessary accounting documents in order to comply with tax-related retention requirements, in accordance with the legal requirements of the German Fiscal Code and Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR in conjunction with Section 147 of the German Fiscal Code. In order to process payments, we may transmit the necessary data to the financial institution you have specified, as per Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR.

If your application is successful, it will become part of your personnel file. It will remain there for the purpose of implementing and terminating the employment relationship, as per Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR.
