When processing personal data, Vibracoustic complies with the relevant statutory data protection and data security regulations in the countries concerned as well as with internal data protection regulations.

§1 For what purpose and under what legal basis is your personal data collected and processed?

In principle, we collect and use personal data of our users only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website as well as the content and services. The personal data of our users is collected and used only with the user’s consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)). An exception applies in cases, where the processing of the data is mandatory due to statutory regulations (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c EU GDPR) or technical reasons (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR in the interest of a properly functioning website).

If we obtain the consent of the data subject to the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR applies as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.

In the processing of personal data, required to fulfil a contract, to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR applies as legal basis. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual actions.

Insofar as it is necessary to process personal data to fulfil a legal obligation to be met by our company, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR applies as legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR applies as legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or of a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail over the interest mentioned first, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR applies as legal basis for processing. Our justified interest in the processing of the personal data of the data subject lies in the provision of a functioning website.

§2 Which categories of personal data are processed?

If you use our website, technical data such as the IP address of your network, date, time, time zone and status of the requested file, information about the website that referred you to our site, your browser type and the version of your operating system are sent to us and stored for a limited period of time as described below.

The data, including the IP addresses of the user, are also stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user. The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Any data stored in log files will be deleted after ten days at the latest. Storage beyond this period is not possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or anonymized, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is essential for the operation of the website. Therefore, the user cannot object to this.

You must give your explicit consent when you provide us with personal data through this website. The data is only used for the stated purpose.

§3 What rights do you have?

Under the EU GDPR, you have the following rights:

If your personal data is processed, you have the right to obtain information about the data stored about you (Art. 15 GDPR). If incorrect personal data is processed, you are entitled to its correction (Art. 16 GDPR). If the legal prerequisites exist, you can request the deletion or limitation of the processing as well as object to the processing (Articles 17, 18 and 21 GDPR). If you request a limitation, it may not be possible to initiate or process the transaction (such as deleting parts of the contact information, thus preventing communication with you or preventing the formation of a contract).

If you have consented to data processing or there is a data processing contract, and the processing of data is done through automated procedures, you may be entitled to data transmission (Art. 20 GDPR).

You have the right to revoke your data protection consent at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.

If we process your data on the basis of our predominant legitimate interest, you can object to the storage of your personal data at any time. Your personal data will no longer be processed unless we demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

For the exercise of your rights as the data subject, a letter by mail to the below-mentioned address or an email to data-protection@vibracoustic.com is sufficient:

Vibracoustic AG
Data Protection
Europaplatz 4
64293 Darmstadt
Germany

If you exercise your rights mentioned above, Vibracoustic will check whether the legal requirements for this are met.

You also have the right to complain to any data protection supervisory authority. The supervisory authority responsible for Vibracoustic AG is:

The Hessian Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information
Postfach 3163
65021 Wiesbaden
Germany
Telephone: +49 611 1408 – 0
Fax: +49 611 1408 – 611
Email to HDSB: https://datenschutz.hessen.de/über-uns/kontakt

§4 When will your personal data be deleted?

We will delete your personal data or limit its processing as soon as the purpose of the processing ceases to exist. Such storage may also take place if specified by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations, to which the controller is subject. A restriction or deletion of the data occurs even if a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for conclusion or fulfilment of the contract.

§5 To whom is your personal data transferred?

We transmit your data to processors, who are involved in the processing and with whom we have concluded corresponding data protection agreements. In addition, we transmit your data to third parties if the circumstances (e.g. a request or an application – see below Job Applicant Data Protection) make it necessary for the transfer of your data to a clerk of a company in the Vibracoustic Business Group in a member state of the European Union or in a third country (see below) to provide technical responses. This is especially true if you, for example, explicitly apply in the application tool for an advertised position in a company of the Vibracoustic Group in a member state of the European Union or in a third country.

§6 Is the personal data transferred to a third country?

In addition, we transfer your personal data to the third country always in compliance with the Art. 44 to 49 GDPR, by concluding corresponding data protection agreements with the affiliated companies, with the inclusion of the GDPR standard contractual clauses*, if necessary, or if an adequacy decision by the EU Commission for the destination country exists.

§7 Would you like to contact us (contact form and email contact)?

Our website has a contact form that can be used for online communication. If a user uses this form, the data entered in the input screen will be transmitted to us and saved. These details include required information about the first name, last name, company, country, email and inquiry.

When sending this form, your consent to the processing of the data is obtained and this data protection policy is referred to you. Alternatively, you can also contact us via the provided email address. In this case, the user’s personal data transferred by email will be saved.

Legal basis for the processing of the data in the presence of the user’s consent is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. The lawful processing that has taken place until then remains unaffected by the revocation.

Regarding the revocation of this consent, we refer to your rights already described above.

In this context, there is no regular disclosure of the data to third parties. The data will be used exclusively to process the communication within the scope of your

request. Data will be disclosed only to companies belonging to the Vibracoustic Group if it is necessary to respond to your request.

In addition, we transfer your personal data to affiliated companies in third countries always in compliance with the GDPR. When your personal data is transferred, Art. 44 to 49 GDPR and the corresponding data protection agreements are agreed, possibly with reference to the EU standard contract clauses, or there is an EU Commission adequacy decision for the target country exists.

If a processor is located in a third country, the personal data will be transmitted always in compliance with the provisions of Art. 44 to 49 GDPR. A related additional clause will be included in the relevant agreement on order processing.

We process the personal data from the input screen only to process the contact. In the case of contact by email, this also includes the required legitimate interest in the processing of the data.

The other personal information processed when sending the contact form is intended to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

The legal basis for the processing of data that is transferred by email is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in answering your inquiry.

If the email contact aims to conclude a contract, then additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR.

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for meeting the purpose of its collection. This is the case for the personal data from the input screen of the contact form and the data sent by email, once the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is ended when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the relevant facts have been finally clarified.

The additional personal data collected when sending the contact form will be deleted at the latest after the request has been answered.

§9 Use of Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytical service from Google Inc. (Google). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies – text files – that are saved on your computer and allow for an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookies about your usage of this website are usually transferred to and stored on a server in the USA. In the event IP anonymization is activated for this website, Google will shorten your IP address within a member state of the European Union or in another treaty state to the European Economic Community beforehand. Only by way of exception will the complete IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. At the request of this website operator, Google will use this information to assess your use of the website to compile a report about website activities and provide further services associated with the website usage and internet services to the website operator.

The IP address your browser provides as part of Google Analytics will not be merged in with other data from Google.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by making appropriate changes to your browser software settings; please note these settings may limit the full availability of all the functions on this website. In addition, you can prevent the disclosure of the data collected by the cookie regarding your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and Google’s processing of this data by going to the following link and downloading and installing the available browser plug-in: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

This website uses Google Analytics with the “_anonymizeIp()” plug in. This shortens the IP addresses prior to processing, meaning they cannot be traced back to a specific person. Should any personal data be revealed, this will be removed immediately, and the personal data thus deleted right away.

We use Google Analytics to analyze the usage of our website and make regular improvements. The statistics allows us to improve our website design and make it more interesting for users. In the exceptional event that data is transferred to the USA, Google is subject to the EU_US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Data protection overview: http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/learn/privacy.html, as well as the data protection declaration: http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

This website also uses Google Analytics to analyze visitor flows across devices using a single user ID. In your customer account, you can use the “My Data” settings to deactivate the analysis of your usage across devices.

Google Tag Manager: Google Tag Manager is a solution that allows marketers to manage website tags through a single interface. The Tool Tag Manager itself (which implements the tags) is a cookieless 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 made at the domain or cookie level, it remains for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager. http://www.google.de/tagmanager/use-policy.html

§10 Integration of third-party services

YouTube

We have integrated YouTube videos in our online offerings and these are saved at www.YouTube.com and can be played directly from our website. These are all in the “expanded data protection” mode, i.e. no data about you as a user will be transferred to YouTube if you do not play the videos. Only after you play the videos, the data listed in the next paragraph will be transferred. We have no influence on this data transfer.

Through your visit to the website, YouTube will be informed that you have opened on the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, the data named in §2 of this declaration will be transmitted. This will happen regardless of whether you are logged in to a YouTube user account, or if there is not user account at all. If you are logged into Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not want your data immediately assigned to your account, you must log out before activating the button. YouTube will store the data as a user profile and use it for promotional purposes, market research and/or the user-friendly design of its website. Such assessments are primarily made to provide tailored advertisements (even for users who are not logged in) and to inform other users in the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of a user profile, however, you must address these objections to YouTube.

You can find out more about the purpose and scope of the data collection and its processing by YouTube in the data protection declaration. You will find more information about your rights and possible settings to protect your privacy: www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy. Google processes data in the USA and is subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield, www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

Facebook

Privacy information when using Facebook plug-ins.

The Vibracoustic website contains programs and plug-ins from the social network Facebook. This is the button with the Facebook logo and the corresponding “Share on” message. The social network is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (hereinafter Facebook). All data processing processes in this context are not carried out by us, but rather by Facebook. It is not known exactly what data processing operations Facebook performs when and after a fan page is called up by a user. Therefore, we can only provide the following information based on the currently available level of knowledge:

When you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook collects information about your actions, interactions and movements within its social network, which Facebook Inc. uses to optimize its personalized direct marketing profile for each user for its own business purposes and links to your profile and registration information and other information provided by you or others within the social network. For the purpose and scope of data collection by Facebook and for further processing and use of your data there, as well as your rights and setting options in this regard, which you have to protect your privacy, we refer to the Facebook data protection information, over which we have no control (http://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/).

Even if you are not logged in to Facebook, Facebook Inc. stores and uses data on the operating system, the browser version, IP address and the place of origin derived from it.

In addition, Facebook can also recognize you as an unlogged/non-registered user via cookies and use the statistical data obtained from your next login or your first registration with Facebook to form your profile.

Twitter and LinkedIn

“Tailored Audiences” and “Conversion Tracking” by Twitter and LinkedIn offer the opportunity to target existing users and customers who have visited the Vibracoustic website with relevant campaigns. This is done by Twitter and LinkedIn using a website tag to store anonymized user data. When a user visits our website, a Twitter or LinkedIn cookie is placed in the browser.

Vibracoustic adheres to the guidelines for Conversion Tracking and Tailored Audiences of the company Twitter (https://support.twitter.com/articles/20172376#). Users who wish to deactivate interest-based advertising on Twitter can do so, for example, via the respective unsubscribe mechanism defined by Twitter (currently here: https://support.twitter.com/articles/20171528#). You can change your privacy settings on Twitter at http://twitter.com/account/settings. Data protection information can be found under http://twitter.com/privacy.

At LinkedIn, you can decline interest-based advertising here https://www.linkedin.com/psettings/enhanced-advertising. Please note that rejection of such advertisements will not remove any ads from the pages you visit. It simply means that the ads you are shown are not necessarily tailored to your personal interests. If you are not a member of LinkedIn, you will find the Cookie Privacy Policy at https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy

The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.

§11 Integration of Google Maps

This website includes services from Google Maps. We are thus able to display an interactive map for you directly in the website and provide you with the convenient usage of the map function.

Visiting the website will provide Google with information that you have opened in the corresponding subpages of our website. In addition, the data named under §2 of this declaration will be provided. This will occur regardless of whether not a user account has been created. If you are logged into Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not wish to have this information assigned to your Google profile, you need to log out before activating the button. Google saves your data as a user profile and uses it for advertising, market research and/or the user-friendly design of its website. Such evaluations are made to provide tailored advertisements (even for users who are not logged in) and inform other users of the social network about your activity on our website. You retain the right to object to the formation of a user profile, whereby the exercising of such a right is subject to Google’s terms and conditions.

Further information about the purpose and scope of the data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider can be found in the provider’s data protection declaration. You will also find further information about your rights and possible settings to protect your privacy: Google processes data in the US and is subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield, www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

When processing personal data, Vibracoustic complies with the relevant statutory data protection and data security regulations in the countries concerned as well as with internal data protection regulations.

This data protection policy contains information on how the Vibracoustic Group handles personal data, which is collected on the embedded websites of the Workbuster application system or transferred by you to Vibracoustic as part of your application, and explains how your personal information is handled in the course of the application process.

§12 What is the purpose of collecting your personal data?

Vibracoustic needs your personal data in order to process your application. We store, process and use the data transmitted to us for recruitment purpose only. We only use the information that you provided us directly. This may include information that you have provided in job portals or other online career networks.

We want to keep the application process as easy as possible for you. We are happy to consider your application for further, open vacancies in other companies of our Group. If your profile matches our requirements, we would approach you and invite you to apply for another position. It is up to you to apply for it. The same applies to unsolicited applications submitted here or by other means.

We collect your personal data for the purpose of carrying out the application process on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 b) in conjunction with Art. 88 GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations) as well as §26 para. 1 German Federal Data Protection Act.

§13 What personal data do we collect?

We collect your personal data that is necessary for the application process or that you submit to us as part of the application process (including last name, first name, address, email, the position you are applying to and details of your personal application). In order to be able to assess your application carefully, we may also need additional information, e.g. about your professional career to date.
If you have applied on your own initiative without reference to a specific position, we also ask about your preferences (e.g. with regard to locations and job groups that are of interest to you) in order to consider you for suitable positions.

In the case of an online application, you enter your personal data in the forms of the Workbuster tool and add additional documents via upload. For applications sent by email or post, we collect your data from your documents and save it automatically in our system.

We use only data directly and personally provided by you in the course of your application process. We do not perform any search for your personal details, e.g. using online search engines. You are also welcome to point out additional, online information about your professional career to us.

If we ask you about your gender, this is based solely on our desire to address you in the right form orally or in writing.

§14 Who processes the information from your application?

The organizational structure of the Vibracoustic Group requires that your application will be processed by different departments, depending on the application channel you have chosen. Your personal data will only be processed by the HR recruitment officer of a company in our Group and, if applicable, by contracted service providers, who have been obliged by us to comply with the relevant data protection regulations.

Throughout the application process and in the subsequent recruitment process, your application documents will be shared with those responsible for filling the positions of the relevant company in the Group.

Your personal examination results will not be made accessible to us.

§15 Who will be informed about your application?

Your personal data will be kept strictly confidential and will only be made accessible to the persons involved in the application process. Processors may be involved in this process, providing any necessary services for the selection process (e.g. providers of online tests).

As part of the potential recruitment process, your personal data would be made available to groups of people, who require such data for the following employment-related purposes only. This also applies to information that has to be disclosed to internal or external service providers for the necessary pre-employment examinations, based on legal and regulatory requirements.

In addition, we transfer your personal data to affiliated companies in third countries always in compliance with the GDPR. When your personal data is transferred, Art. 44 to 49 GDPR and the corresponding data protection agreements are agreed, possibly with reference to the EU standard contract clauses, or there is an EU Commission adequacy decision for the target country exists. If a processor is located in a third country, the personal data will be transmitted always in compliance with the provisions of Art. 44 to 49 GDPR. A related additional clause will be included in the relevant agreement on order processing.
