We treat your personal data confidentially and in compliance with legal provisions on data protection as well as this privacy policy.

Through this privacy policy, our company seeks to inform the public about the nature, scope and purpose of the personal information we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of their rights under this privacy policy.

The use of our website involves the transfer of personal data. To the extent personal data (for example, name, address or e-mail addresses) is collected on our site, this always is voluntary where possible. This data will not be disclosed to third parties without your express consent.
In the same way, the data of existing customers are managed which are stored as a result of quotations or sales.
All data is handled internally only by persons and departments required for individual activities. At the express request of the respective business partner the data can be deleted at any time.

For this reason, every person concerned is free to submit personal data to us in alternative ways, for example by telephon.

Rights of the Data Subject (Data Subject Rights)

Data Subject Rights are the rights of the person affected by any use of data (= data subject) in their relationship to the data controller.

FEIG ELECTRONIC as data controller grants the data subjects the following rights:

  • Right to confirmation
  • Right to information
  • Right to correction
  • Right to deletion (right to be forgotten)
  • Your personal data will be deleted if you revoke your consent to storage, the purpose does no longer apply or the storage periods have expired
  • Right to limitation of processing
  • Right to data transferability
  • Right to objection
  • Right to revoke consent under data protection law
  • Right to file a complaint with a supervisory authority
Data privacy regarding applications and in the application processes

The data controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for purposes related to the application process. Processing is carried out using electronic means. If suitably qualified, the personal data you have provided to us will be stored in a separate directory for further processing, to which only the HR department and the respective responsible supervisors have access. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with the applicant, the transmitted data are stored for execution of the employment relationship under compliance with statutory provisions. If the data controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be deleted automatically two months after the decision in the application proceedings was announced, unless deletion is outweighed by any legitimate interests of the data controller. Other legitimate interests in this sense are, for example, a burden of proof in proceedings in connection with the Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz (AGG) [General Equal Treatment Act].

Legitimate interests in processing which are pursued by the data controller or a third party

If processing of the personal data is based on Article 6 I letter F GDPR, our legitimate interest is the conduct of our business for the benefit of all our employees and shareholders.

Period for which personal data are stored

The criterion for the period for which personal data are stored is the respectively applicable statutory retention period. After lapse of this period, the data in question are routinely deleted, provided they are no longer required for execution or initiation of a contract.
