On our website we use Google Conversion Tracking, an analysis service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google"). Google AdWords places a cookie on your computer (“conversion cookie”) if you have reached our website via a Google ad.

2.8 Google Web Fonts
This site uses so-called web fonts (http://www.google.com/webfonts/) for the optically improved representation of the font and information. The Services are provided by Google LLC ("Google"), Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
These web fonts are integrated by calling a server, usually a Google server in the USA. When you visit our site, your browser loads the required web font into your browser cache. This transmits to the server which of our Internet pages you have visited. The IP address of the browser of the end device of the visitor to this website is also stored by Google. This is necessary so that your browser can display our texts in a visually improved way. You can set your browser so that the fonts are not loaded from the Google servers (e.g. by installing add-ons such as NoScript or Ghostery for Firefox.).

2.10 Live Chat
Puettmann offers advice via live chat as part of its website. Live chat allows you to have a text communication with one of our consultants. The purpose of data collection is to process your request. The text content you enter into the chat mask during the live chat (name, request, any contact details) is voluntary. If you would like further contact during the chat, we ask you to use our contact form when requested by the consultant. The legal basis for collecting and processing the data is Art. 6 Para. 1 GDPR.
If you call up and use the live chat, your internet browser automatically transmits data (date and time of access, duration of the visit) at the beginning of use for technical reasons. The legal basis for this is the fulfillment of our legal obligations in the area of data security and our legitimate interest in eliminating disruptions and ensuring the security of our offers. This data is also processed for analysis purposes - without being assigned to a specific person. The data is collected for the same purposes as for anonymous data collection (see above).
The data you enter in the live chat will remain with us until the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.
2.11 Contact Form/Inquiries
On our website you have the possibility to send us inquiries via the contact form. Your information from the contact form (content of your request, subject of your request and date) including the contact data you provided there (name, surname, email, title, company, telephone, country, city and postal code) will be processed for the purpose of processing the request and for stored with us in the event of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent. The legal basis for collecting and processing the data is Art. 6 Para. 1 GDPR.
The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.
2.12 Email Contact
If you send us inquiries or information by e-mail, your details (e-mail address, content of your e-mail, subject of your e-mail and date) including the contact data you provided there (name, surname, possibly telephone number, address) for the purpose of processing the request and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent. The legal basis for collecting and processing the data is Art. 6 Para. 1 GDPR.
The user is informed that e-mails can be read or changed in transit without authorization and unnoticed. Puettmann uses software to filter unwanted emails (spam filters). The spam filter allows e-mails to be rejected if certain characteristics incorrectly identify them as spam.
The data you enter will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.
2.13 Subscription to our newsletter
On our website you have the option of subscribing to our company's newsletter. In this way, we inform our customers and business partners at regular intervals about company offers. For this we need a valid e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Further data is not collected or only collected on a voluntary basis. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address entered by a data subject for the first time for the newsletter dispatch using the double opt-in procedure. We use this data exclusively for sending the newsletter and do not pass it on to third parties. The legal basis for collecting and processing the data is Art. 6 Para. 1 GDPR.
When registering for the newsletter, we also store the IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) of the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to trace the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a person concerned at a later point in time and therefore serves to protect us.
You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the "unsubscribe wenglor news" link in every newsletter. Alternatively, you are welcome to email your unsubscribe request to email@example.com at any time. The legality of the data processing operations that have already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you have stored with us for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and deleted after you have canceled the newsletter.
2.13.1 Newsletter tracking
The newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in e-mails that are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This allows a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns to be carried out. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, we can see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were called up by data subjects.
Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by us on the basis of legitimate interests in order to optimize the newsletter dispatch and to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the person concerned. The legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 GDPR. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Affected persons are entitled at any time to revoke the relevant separate declaration of consent given via the double opt-in procedure. After a revocation, this personal data will be deleted by the person responsible for processing. Unsubscribing from the receipt of the newsletter will be interpreted as an automatic revocation.
2.14 Career Section/Online Application
On our site you have the option of using the careers area and/or submitting applications by email. The personal data (master data, contact details, attachments such as cover letter, curriculum vitae, certificates, etc.) of applicants are collected and processed for the purpose of handling the application process. The processing can also take place electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends the relevant application documents, e.g. by e-mail or via a web form on the website, to the person responsible for processing. If the person responsible for processing concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the person responsible for processing does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted six months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that deletion does not conflict with any other legitimate interests of the person responsible for processing. Another legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a burden of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG). The legal basis for collecting and processing the data is Art. 6 Para. 1 GDPR.
3.1 Transmission internally, within Puettmann
We transmit your data internally to the administration, human resources department, works council and payroll office in order to comply with our contractual or legal obligations. Your data will only be transmitted or disclosed to the extent required for this, in compliance with the relevant data protection regulations.
3.3 Transfer to Third Parties
We transmit your data to certain third parties in order to be able to provide corresponding applications and services (so-called "processors") who provide external services for us. For example, newsletter services, IT providers, tax offices, etc. A transfer to other third parties may take place in order to fulfill our obligations (authorities, banks, social security agencies, etc.). Third parties only process the data in accordance with our instructions, and they are also prohibited from using this data for their own commercial purposes that do not correspond to the agreed purposes.
We have to disclose personal data if we are obliged to do so as part of ongoing legal proceedings, based on an injunction, by law or under applicable law (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR).
We only pass on your personal data to third parties if: you have given your express consent in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Clause 1 Letter a GDPR, the transfer according to Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR is necessary to assert, exercise or defend legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not disclosing your data, in the event that there is a legal obligation for the transfer according to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit this is legally permissible and required for the processing of contractual relationships with you in accordance with Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. b GDPR. If the processing of your data takes place outside of Europe, this transmission will take place in compliance with all applicable data protection laws and in particular with Art. 44 f. DSGVO.
3.4 Transfer to a third country or international organization
We transmit your data to countries outside the EU or the EEA (so-called third countries) for the above purposes (transmission and transmission to third parties (No. 4.3)). The transmission only takes place for the execution of our contractual and legal obligations or on the basis of your consent. This transmission takes place in compliance with all applicable data protection laws and in particular according to Art. 44 f. DSGVO. In particular, either due to adequacy decisions issued by the European Commission or due to certain guarantees (e.g. standard data protection clauses, etc.).
4.1 Duration of storage
In principle, we store your data for as long as this is necessary to provide our online offer and the associated services or if this is provided for by the European legislator for directives and regulations or another legislator in laws or regulations to which the person responsible for processing is subject became. In all other cases, we delete your personal data after the purpose has been fulfilled, with the exception of data that we must continue to store to fulfill legal obligations (e.g. due to tax and commercial law retention periods, we are obliged to keep documents such as contracts and keep invoices for a certain period of time).
4.2 Technical Security
Puettmann uses technical and organizational security measures to protect your data managed by us against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL encryption (Secure Socket Layer) in conjunction with the highest level of encryption used by your browser is supported. This is usually 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v3 technology instead. You can tell whether an individual page of our website is transmitted in encrypted form by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
4.3 Legal Basis for Processing
Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data could become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not prevail. If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest is conducting our business for the benefit of all our employees and our customers.
4.4 Statutory or contractual requirements for providing the personal data; Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision
We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a person concerned makes personal data available to us, which must then be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with them. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee clarifies to the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences would be if the personal data were not provided.
4.5 Minority Notice
This online offer is not aimed at children under the age of 16. Persons who have not yet reached the age of 16 may not transmit any personal data to Puettmann without the consent of their legal guardian.
4.6 Rights of data subjects
You have the right to information about the data we have stored, the duration of the data, the purpose and legal basis for storage, and the origin and recipient of transmissions. Inaccurate data must be corrected, data stored inadmissibly or no longer required must be deleted. In addition, the data subject has a right to object, a right to restriction of processing and the right to data portability.
This information is created upon your request. This information is free of charge.

4.7 Revocation of your consent to data processing
Some data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You have the option to revoke consent that you have already given at any time. An informal message to firstname.lastname@example.org by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing that took place up until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
