3) Categories, sources and origin of the data

Which data we process is determined by the respective context: this depends on whether, for example, you place an order online or enter an inquiry in our contact form, whether you send us an application or submit a complaint.

  • Name of the Internet Service Provider.
  • The IP address assigned by your Internet service provider
  • Information about the web pages that you call up from us, including date and time

For reasons of technical security (in particular to defend against attempted attacks on our web server), this data is stored in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f EU-DS-GVO. After 7 days at the latest, anonymization takes place by shortening the IP address so that no reference to the user is made.

Our Internet pages use so-called cookies in several places. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser (locally on your hard drive).

These are stored on your computer and transmitted from it to our site. Therefore, you also have full control over the use of cookies. By changing the settings in your Internet browser, you can disable or restrict the transmission of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common internet browsers.

Based on our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f EU-DS-GVO), we use technically necessary cookies that are absolutely essential for the operation of the website and to ensure its functionality. Furthermore, we use cookies without your consent insofar as their sole purpose is the storage of or access to information stored in the terminal device for the transmission of messages or these are absolutely necessary in order to be able to provide the service expressly requested by you, § 25 para. 2 TTDSG.

Assuming your consent, further cookies are used, by means of which it is possible for us or third parties, for example, to evaluate how our services are used. This allows us to design the content according to user needs. In addition, the cookies enable us to measure the effectiveness of a particular advertisement and to have it placed, for example, depending on the thematic user interests. The legal basis for this is your express consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a EU-DS-GVO, § 25 para. 1 TTDSG).

Further information on the individual cookies (including name, provider, purpose and storage period) can be found in our cookie banner. In addition, there is the possibility to withdraw your consent: Cookie Banner.

d) Google Tag Manager

This website uses the Google Tag Manager of Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland). This service allows website tags to be managed via an interface. The Tag Manager is required for the technical operation, through it the tags are controlled. The legal basis for the use of Google Tag Manager is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f EU-DS-GVO. In this context, we have a legitimate interest in the use of the Google Tag Manager, as it is absolutely necessary to control the individual scripts used on the website and in this way to ensure the function of the website. The Google Tag Manager only implements tags. This means that no cookies are used and no personal data is collected. The Google Tag Manager triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. However, the Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at the domain or cookie level, it remains in place for all tracking tags, insofar as these are implemented with the Google Tag Manager. More information about the Google Tag Manager can be found at the following link:

f) Applications

Thank you for your interest in working for Herding GmbH Filtertechnik. We are aware of the importance of your data and process the personal data you provide in the context of applications only for the purpose of effective and correct handling of the application process and for contacting you in the context of the application process.

In doing so, we observe the principle of data economy and data avoidance. Of course, you have the option of providing voluntary information.

No data will be passed on to third parties without your consent.

In order to protect the security and confidentiality of your data in the best possible way, our service provider (recruitee) sets high standards in the area of data protection, which you can look up here:

We store your data for the above-mentioned purpose until the application process has been completed and related deadlines have expired – at the latest six months after receipt of a decision.

To do this, we need your consent, which you can send to us by email at any time. You also have the option to revoke your consent at any time.

When contacting us via our WhatsApp channel (+49 15141450020), you automatically agree to the DSGVO guidelines. You can revoke this consent at any time.

4) Automated individual case decisions

We do not use any purely automated processing processes to bring about a decision.

5) Links to other providers

Our website also contains – clearly recognizable – links to the websites of other companies. Insofar as links to websites of other providers are present, we have no influence on their contents. Therefore, no guarantee or liability can be assumed for these contents. The respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the content of these pages.

The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations and recognizable infringements at the time of linking. Illegal contents were not recognizable at the time of linking. However, a permanent control of the contents of the linked pages is not reasonable without concrete evidence of a violation of the law. If we become aware of any infringements, such links will be removed immediately.

6) Social media

On our website you will find a link to our social media presence on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, Youtube and Xing. You can recognize links to the social media websites by the respective company logo. If you follow this link, you will reach our corporate presence on the respective social media. When you click on a link to a social media network, a connection is established to the servers of the respective social media network. This transmits to the servers of the social media network that you have visited our website. In addition, further data is transmitted to the provider of the social media network. These are, for example:

    • Address of the website on which the activated link is located.
    • Date and time when the website was called up or the link was activated
    • Information about the browser and operating system used
    • IP address

In addition to us, the following company is responsible for the company website in terms of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU-DS-GVO) and other data protection regulations

If you are already logged in to the corresponding social media network at the time the link is activated, the provider of the social media network may be able to determine your user name and possibly even your real name from the transmitted data and assign this information to your personal user account with the social media network. You can exclude this possibility of assignment to your personal user account if you log out of your user account beforehand.

The servers of the social media networks are located in the USA and other countries outside the European Union. The data may therefore also be processed by the provider of the social media network in countries outside the European Union. Please note that companies in these countries are subject to data protection laws that may not protect general personal data to the same extent as they do in the member states of the European Union.

Please note that we have no influence on the scope, type and purpose of the data processing by the provider of the social media network. For more detailed information on the use of your data by the social media networks integrated on our website and the options to object, please refer to the information linked below:
