If the processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) c DSGVO serves as the legal basis. If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override this, Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing. If we process data on the basis of a balance of interests, you as the data subject have the right to object to the processing of personal data, taking into account the requirements of Art. 21 DSGVO.

3. OUR SOCIAL MEDIA PRESENCE
Data processing through social networks
We maintain publicly accessible profiles on social networks. The individual social networks used by us can be found below. Social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, etc. can generally comprehensively analyze your user behavior when you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. buttons or advertising banners). By visiting our social media presence, numerous data protection-relevant processing operations are triggered.
If you are logged into your social media account and visit our social media presence, the operator of the social media portal can assign this visit to your user account. However, your personal data may also be collected under certain circumstances if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portal. In this case, this data collection takes place, for example, via cookies that are stored on your end device or by recording your IP address.
With the help of the data collected in this way, the operators of the social media portals can create user profiles in which your preferences and interests are stored. In this way, you can be shown interest-based advertising inside and outside the respective social media presence. Provided you have an account with the respective social network, the interest-based advertising may be displayed on all devices on which you are or were logged in.
Our social media presence is intended to ensure the most comprehensive possible presence on the Internet. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. The analysis processes initiated by the social networks may be based on different legal grounds, which are to be stated by the operators of the social networks (e.g. consent within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO).
The person responsible and assertion of rights
If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g. Facebook), we are jointly responsible with the operator of the social media platform for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. In principle, you can assert your rights (information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability and complaint) both vis-à-vis us and vis-à-vis the operator of the respective social media portal (e.g. vis-à-vis Facebook).
Please note that despite the joint responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have full influence on the data processing procedures of the social media portals. Our options are largely determined by the corporate policy of the respective provider.
The data collected directly by us via the social media presence will be deleted from our systems as soon as you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies. Stored cookies remain on your end device until you delete them. Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.
Your rights You have the right at any time to receive information free of charge about the origin, recipient, and purpose of your stored personal data. You also have the right to object, to data portability, and the right to complain to the competent supervisory authority. Furthermore, you can demand the correction, blocking, deletion, and, under certain circumstances, the restriction of the processing of your personal data.

5. OWN SERVICES
We process the data you have sent us in connection with your application to assess your suitability for the position (or other open positions in our companies, if applicable) and to carry out the application procedure. The legal basis for the processing of your personal data in this application procedure is primarily Section 26 BDSG. According to this, the processing of data required in connection with the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship is permissible.
Should the data be required for legal prosecution after the application procedure has been completed, data processing may be carried out based on the requirements of Art. 6 DSGVO, to safeguard legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our interest then consists in asserting or defending claims.
Retention period of data
If we are unable to offer applicants a job, the data will be deleted after 6 months.
If you have been accepted for a position during the application process, the data from the application documents will be transferred to our personnel information system. Your data will only be processed by us and will not be passed on to third parties.
Your applicant data will be sifted through by the personnel department after receipt of your application. Suitable applications are then forwarded internally to the person responsible for the respective open position. The further procedure is then coordinated. In principle, only those persons in the company have access to your data who need it for the proper conduct of our application procedure. The data will be processed exclusively in the Federal Republic of Germany.
6. GENERAL INFORMATION OBLIGATIONS ACCORDING TO ART. 13 DSGVO FOR CUSTOMERS, SUPPLIERS & OTHER CONTACTS
What data about you are processed by us? And for what purposes?
If we have received data from you, we will generally only process it for the purposes for which we received or collected it. Data processing for other purposes is only considered if the necessary legal requirements according to Art. 6(4) DSGVO are met. Any information obligations under Art. 13(3) DSGVO and Art. 14(4) DSGVO will of course be observed in that case.
On what legal basis is this based?
The legal basis for the processing of personal data is generally – unless there are specific legal provisions – Art. 6 DSGVO. The following possibilities are particularly relevant:
If personal data are processed on the basis of your consent, you have the right to revoke the consent at any time with effect for the future.
If we process data based on a balancing of interests, you as the data subject have the right, taking into account the provisions of Art. 21 DSGVO, to object to the processing of personal data.
How long will the data be stored?
We process the data for as long as is necessary for the respective purpose. If there are legal retention obligations – e.g., in commercial or tax law – the relevant personal data will be stored for the duration of the retention obligation. After the retention obligation expires, it will be reviewed whether there is a further need for processing. If there is no longer a need, the data will be deleted.
In principle, we conduct a review of data towards the end of a calendar year with regard to the necessity of further processing. Due to the volume of data, this review is carried out with regard to specific types of data or purposes of processing.
To which recipients will the data be disclosed?
Disclosure of your personal data to third parties generally only occurs if it is necessary for the performance of the contract with you, if the disclosure is permissible based on a balancing of interests pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) DSGVO, if we are legally obligated to disclose the data, or if you have given consent in this regard.
Where will the data be processed?
Wendler Einlagen GmbH & Co. KG is a globally operating company. In the context of our business relationships, personal data may be transferred to subsidiaries of Wendler Einlagen GmbH & Co.
