7.      Data protection

7.1 General

It is our highest priority to protect customer data and to only use it the way our customers would expect us to. Compliance with statutory data protection regulations is therefore a matter of course for us.

KATHREIN Sachsen GmbH is the body responsible for all data protection.

7.2 Data Logging

When you call up our web site, data is transferred to our web server over your Internet browser. When your Internet browser and our web server communicate, the following data is logged during a current session:

- date and time of inquiry or visit
- name of the requested file
- web page from which access to the file was requested
- access status (file transmitted, file not found, etc.)
- web browser used and operating system used

7.3 Person-related Data and Rights of Persons Concerned

You can visit our web site without supplying any personal data. Where personal data is required (e.g. name, address, email address for registration), it is collected as far as possible on a voluntary basis.

The personal data that we receive over our web site is only used for correspondence and is only used for the purpose for which you have given us consent.

Your personal data will not be disclosed to third parties, unless we are legally obligated to or if you have given us your prior consent.

Your personal data will only be saved as long as required to fulfil the original purpose for which you have made it available to us.

Legal prerequisites provided, you have the right to demand the blocking or cancellation of your stored personal data. 

You may have the right, under certain conditions, of restricted processing of your data. You have the right to demand information pertaining to any of your data. You have the right, under certain conditions, to demand the correction or cancellation of your data.

7.4 Social Networks

Our website uses social plug-ins from Xing. The plug-ins are identifiable by a logo. 

When you visit a website containing such plug-ins, these plug-ins can set up direct connections to the social network and possibly transmit data. There will be communication between the plug-ins, your browser/your mobile device and the social network. By integrating the plug-ins, the social networks receive information that you have accessed the respective page on our website. If you are logged into the social network, the social network can assign the visit to your account. 

If you interact with the plug-ins and click the Share or Follow us button, the corresponding information is transmitted directly to the social network and stored there according to the privacy policy of the respective social network. For information on the purpose and scope of data collection and how the data is processed and used by the social network, as well as your rights in this respect and setting options for protecting your privacy, please visit the privacy policy of the respective social network. 

If you do not want social networks to receive information about your visit to our website, please log off the social networks before visiting our website or using the app.

7.5 Electronic Mail (email)

If you send us emails without encryption, it is possible for third parties to read information during the transfer procedure. In general, we cannot check your identity and do not know the person behind an email address. Communication ensuring legal compliance is therefore not guaranteed by email.

We use filters against unwanted advertisements (spam filters) which in rare cases and by mistake automatically classify normal emails as unwanted advertisements and delete them.

7.6 Job applications by e-mail

We are pleased that you are interested in our online job portal. The protection of your personal data is of great importance to us. In the following, we will inform you about the collection, processing and use of data that has been transferred to us for an online job application on the basis of the valid data protection provisions.

For online job applications, the following personal data is required and therefore collected and processed:

Your data is only forwarded to the internal places and departments in our company which are in charge of the particular application procedure. Your personal application data will not be forwarded to other companies affiliated with the Kathrein Group without explicit prior consent from your side.

Your application data will not be used for any other than the afore-mentioned purpose or be forwarded to any third parties.

7.7.3 Retention Period of the Application Data

Your personal application data will be deleted automatically 6 months after the application procedure has been completed. This does not apply if legal provisions contradict the deletion, if the continued storage is necessary for the purpose of evidence, or if you have explicitly agreed to a prolonged storage.

We use sufficient technical and organisational data-protection measures (TOM) for protecting your personal data against manipulation, loss, destruction or access by third parties.
