Right to deletion
Where the legal reasons defined in Art. 17 GDPR apply, you have the right to immediate deletion (“right to be forgotten”) of personal data concerning you. These legal reasons include: the personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were processed, or you withdraw your consent, and there are no other legal grounds for processing; the data subject objects to the processing (and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for processing––does not apply to objections to direct advertising).

Right to restriction of processing
If the criteria defined in Art. 18 GDPR are fulfilled, you have the right to restriction of processing as established in the above article of the GDPR. According to this article, restriction of processing may be called for in particular if processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes deletion of the personal data and requests the restriction of their use instead, or if the data subject has objected to processing according to Art. 21 (1) GDPR as long as it is unclear whether our legitimate interest overrides the interest of the data subject. To assert your above right, please contact the contact address given above.

Right to data portability
You have the right to data portability as defined in Art. 20 GDPR. This means you have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to us, in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format, and have the right to transmit those data to another controller, such as another service provider. Prerequisite is that processing is based on consent or a contract and is carried out using automated means. To assert your above right, please contact the contact address given above.

Right to object
You have the right to object at any time under Art. 21 GDPR to processing of personal data concerning you which is based on Art 6 (1) lit. e or f GDPR, on grounds relating to your particular situation.

To assert your above right, please contact the contact address given above.

Security

BUP takes appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect any personal data you provide to TÜV Hessen from accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction, or access by unauthorized parties. This also applies to any external services purchased. We verify the effectiveness of our data protection measures and continuously improve them in line with technological development. Any personal data entered are encrypted during transfer using a secure encryption process.

Intended data transfer to third countries

At present, data transfer to third countries is not planned. Otherwise, we will establish the required legal conditions. You will be informed of the respective recipients or categories of recipients of the personal data in line with the legal requirements.

Standard periods for deletion of data

Legislation has defined numerous data storage periods and obligations. At the end of these periods, the relevant data will be routinely deleted. Data that are not affected by the above storage periods and obligations are deleted or anonymized as soon as the purposes defined in this data privacy statement no longer apply. Unless this data privacy statement includes other deviating provisions for data storage, we will store any data we collect for as long as they are required for the above purposes for which they were collected.

Other data use and deletion

Any further processing or use of your personal data will generally only be carried out to the extent permitted based on a legal regulation or where you have consented to data processing or data use. In the case of further processing for other purposes than the ones for which the data were originally collected, we will inform you about these other services and provide you with all other significant information before further processing.

Applications

On our website you can apply online for advertised positions. To do this, you can send your application to the e-mail address provided or fill in the application form on our website. This form is provided by the online application service "Monster” (Monster Worldwide Deutschland GmbH, Ludwig-Erhard-Str. 14, 65760 Eschborn, Germany).

We store your applicant data for the duration of the examination of your application. If your application is not successful or if you withdraw your application, your application data will be deleted after a maximum of 6 months, unless you have expressly agreed to longer storage. In case of a successful application, the data you have provided us via the application system will be processed further with regard to your future employment in our company. The legal basis is Art. 6 (1) lit. a, b and f GDPR as well as § 26 BDSG.

If you do not provide us the required personal data, this will not have any negative consequences for you. However, incomplete, or incorrectly completed applications will not be considered. Unfortunately, the application cannot be submitted without providing your personal data and will therefore be deleted.

We would like to point out that sending via e-mail is an insecure data transmission. Access by unauthorized third parties cannot be excluded.

In addition, we process this data for abuse detection and tracking. In this respect, the legal basis is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. A comparison with other data files or a transfer to third parties, even in extracts, does not take place. The legal basis of the processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO.

 

Contact

When you contact us, the data you provide (your name, your e-mail address, the concerning and the text of your request and any other voluntary details) will be stored by us. Any further information is voluntarily. The processing is carried out for the purpose of processing the requests based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b, f GDPR.

The data collected during your contact, will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to process your request.

 

Transfer to third parties


Information may also be processed by other legal entities of the BUP Group. However, such processing is limited to the extent required for the purposes defined in this data privacy statement or to which the other legal entity acting as a service provider / processor has to follow the instructions given by the controller.

In this context, we sometimes use service providers (located in Germany) which process data on our behalf (e.g. in email marketing or software design and development, or to support processing of customer inquiries). In these cases, the information is transferred to third parties to enable further processing. External service providers are selected carefully and audited at regular intervals to ensure protection of your data privacy.

These service providers / processors are bound by instructions. Given this, they are subject to our requirements, which include processing of your data exclusively in line with our instructions and in compliance with the applicable Data Protection Act. They are contractually bound to treat your data with strict confidentiality and are not permitted to process data for other purposes than the ones agreed.

Data transfer to the data processor is affected based on Art. 28 (1) GDPR.

We will not sell your data to third parties or otherwise share them for commercial purposes.

 

Misuse detection and prosecution

Information for the detection and prosecution of misuse, in particular your IP address, will be kept available for a maximum of 7 days. The legal basis in this respect is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest in the retention of data for 7 days is to ensure the proper functioning of our website and the transactions conducted over it, and to be able to ward off cyber-attacks and the like. We may use anonymous usage information to design our website to meet your needs.
