We assume no responsibility for the use of third-party cookies.

9 Contact (contact forms, offer forms, etc.)

You can contact us by email. In this case, we will store the personal data you provide to process your request and to contact you to process your request. The voluntary information serves to make your request specific and to improve the processing of your request. The data requested is transmitted to us by you on a purely voluntary basis.

Depending on the nature of the request, the legal basis for such processing is Article 6 Paragraph 1 (b) of the GDPR for requests that you submit yourself as part of a pre-contractual measure, or Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 (f) of the GDPR if your request is of a different nature. The legitimate interest results from the purposes stated under Section 5.

This does not result in a disadvantage for you in the application process. "

Your application data will be stored in our pool of applicants for a period of two years based on the consent you have given us and then automatically deleted. If you would like to delete your data before this deadline, you can carry out the deletion via our applicant portal (independently) or contact us by career[at]deutsche-windtechnik.com with the subject of the deletion.

11 Newsletter

You can give your consent to subscribe to our newsletter, which will inform you about our current interesting offers.

To register for our newsletter, we use what is called the double opt-in procedure. This means that after you have registered, we will send you an email to the specified email address in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration within 24 hours, your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month. In addition, we also store your IP addresses and the time of registration and confirmation. The purpose of the procedure is to be able to prove your registration and, if necessary, to clarify any possible misuse of your personal data.

Your email address is the only required information for sending the newsletter. After receiving your confirmation, we will store your email address for the purpose of sending you the newsletter. The legal basis is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Section 1 (a) GDPR. You can revoke your consent and unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time. You can declare revocation by clicking on the link provided in each newsletter email or by sending a message to the contact details stated in the imprint.

We use the MailChimp service to send the newsletter by email. The provider is Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.

MailChimp is a service with which, among other things, the sending of newsletters can be organised and analysed. If you enter data for the purpose of newsletter subscription (e.g. email address), these are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA.

MailChimp is certified in accordance with the EU-US Privacy Shield. The Privacy Shield is an agreement between the European Union (EU) and the USA to ensure compliance with European privacy standards in the USA.

With the help of MailChimp, we can analyse our newsletter campaigns. When you open an email sent by MailChimp, a file included in the email (called web beacon) connects to MailChimp's servers in the USA. This allows MailChimp to determine if a newsletter message has been opened and which links have been clicked on. In addition, technical information is collected (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type and operating system). This information cannot be linked to the respective newsletter recipient. It is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better tailor future newsletters to the interests of the recipients.

If you do not want to be analysed by MailChimp, you have to unsubscribe from the newsletter. We provide a link for this purpose in every newsletter message. Furthermore, you can unsubscribe from the newsletter directly on the website.

The data that you give to us for the purpose of obtaining the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. After unsubscribing from the newsletter, the information will be deleted both from our servers and from the servers of MailChimp. Data that was stored for other purposes with us (e.g. email addresses in the members' area) remain unaffected. For more information, see the Privacy Policy of MailChimp at: https://mailchimp.com/legal/terms/

Completion of a Data Processing Agreement

We have what is called a "Data Processing Agreement" with MailChimp, in which we contractually bind MailChimp to protect the data of our customers and not to pass it on to third parties.

12 Integration of services and content of third parties

Our website uses content and services of other providers. This includes, for example, videos provided by YouTube. In order for this data to be accessed and displayed in the user's browser, it is absolutely necessary to transmit the user's IP address. The providers (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") thus have access to the IP address of the respective user.

Although we endeavour to use only third-party providers who only need the IP address to deliver content, we have no control over whether the IP address may be stored. If that is the case, the process might be used for statistical purposes, among other things. If we become aware that the IP address is being stored, we will inform you.

Use of Google Maps

For the integration and presentation of map content, our website uses the map service Google Maps. Provider of this service is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

If you view a web page with a Google Maps integrated map, your IP address will be stored. This information is usually transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the USA. Google will know your IP address, even if you are not logged into a user account. If you are logged into your user account, Google can link your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out beforehand. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transfer.

We use Google Maps to enhance the attractiveness of the presentation of our online services and to be able to easily find the places we have indicated on the website. This constitutes a legitimate interest as described by Article 6 Paragraph 1 (f) of the GDPR.

More information on how user data is handled can be found in Google's Privacy Policy at: https://www.google.de/intl/en/policies/privacy/.

Use of YouTube

For the integration and presentation of video content, our website uses plugins from the YouTube website, which is operated by Google. Provider of the video portal is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

When opening a web page with integrated YouTube plug in, a connection is established to the servers of YouTube. Through this, YouTube will be aware of which of our pages you have visited.

If you are logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube can directly link your surfing behaviour with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out beforehand.

We use YouTube to enhance the attractiveness of the presentation of our online services. This constitutes a legitimate interest as described by Article 6 Paragraph 1 (f) of the GDPR.

More information on how user data is handled can be found in Google's Privacy Policy at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy .

Use of Google Analytics

Our website uses functions provided by the web analytics service Google Analytics. Web analytics service provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses "cookies". These are small text files that your web browser stores on your device and allow analysis of website usage. Information generated by cookies about your use of our website is transmitted to a Google server and stored there. The server is usually located in the USA.

The basis for setting Google Analytics cookies is Article 6 Paragraph 1 (f) GDPR. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in the analysis of user behaviour in order to optimise our website and possibly also optimise our advertising.

We use Google Analytics in conjunction with the IP anonymisation feature. It ensures that Google shortens your IP address prior to transmission to the USA when transmitted from within the Member States of the European Union or from other States that are parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. There may be exceptions where Google transmits the full IP address to a server in the USA and shortens it there. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, create reports on website activity, and provide us with other services relating to website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by Google Analytics will not be combined with any other data held by Google.

The setting of cookies by your Web browser can be prevented. However, some functions of our website may be limited as a result of this. You can also prevent the collection of data relating to your website use, including your IP address and subsequent processing by Google. You can do this by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en .

More information on how user data is handled by Google Analytics can be found in Google's Privacy Policy at: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en .

In order to fully comply with legal data protection requirements, we have entered into an agreement with Google regarding data processing on our behalf.

Alternatively, you can prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by setting what is called an "opt-out cookie" by clicking here. If you delete the cookies in your browser, you will need to click this link again.

Google's Privacy Policy can be found at: https://policies.google.com/privacy/partners?hl=en

Use of DoubleClick

Our website uses the online marketing tool DoubleClick by Google. Provider is Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

DoubleClick uses cookies to serve ads that are relevant to users, to optimise performance reports, or to prevent users from seeing identical ads multiple times. Cookies are small text files that your web browser stores on your device. Google uses a cookie ID to determine which ads are running in which browser and can prevent them from being displayed multiple times. The optimal marketing of our website constitutes a legitimate interest in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 (f) GDPR.

Cookie IDs also help DoubleClick capture what are called conversions related to ad requests. This happens, for example, if you see a DoubleClick ad and make a purchase on the Website of the advertiser at a later date using the same web browser. According to Google, DoubleClick cookies do not store personally identifiable information.

Because of the marketing tools used, your browser automatically connects directly to the Google server. We have no control over the extent and use of the data that Google collects through this tool. According to our current level of knowledge, Google receives information through DoubleClick about which areas of our website you have accessed or which ad you have clicked on. If you are logged into your Google account, Google may associate your visit to our website with your account. Even without being logged in, it cannot be ruled out that the provider will determine and store your IP address.

With a modern web browser, you can monitor, restrict and prevent cookies from being set. This gives you the opportunity to refuse the tracking process. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of our website.

Google is certified for the US-European Data Protection Convention "Privacy Shield". This Data Protection Convention aims to ensure compliance with the level of data protection in the EU. For details about DoubleClick by Google's Privacy Policy, please visit: http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Use of Browser Update

Our website uses Browser Update to check whether the client browser is up-to-date. This web site collects a range of general data and information each time it is accessed by us or an automated system. This information and data is stored in the log files of the server. Among other things, this may include the following information:

  • the user's browser type and version
  • the user's operating system
  • the referring website from which the user accesses our website
  • the web pages on the website which the user accesses
  • date and time that our respective website was accessed
  •  IP address
  • Internet service provider through which the user accesses the web pages
  • data and information that provide security in the event of attacks on our IT system

13 Social media

On our web pages, we use social media buttons that have static links to the social media pages of Deutsche Windtechnik on the corresponding platforms. These do not represent a direct integration of the respective providers.

14 Data security

The transmission of information over the Internet is unfortunately never 100% secure, which is why we cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted via the Internet to our website.

However, we secure our website using technical and organisational measures against loss, destruction, access, alteration or dissemination of your data by unauthorised persons.

In particular, your personal data is transmitted in encrypted form. In doing so, we use the SSL/TLS (Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security) coding system. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with the technological developments.

15 Rights of the data subject

You have the right:

  • to request information about your personal data processed by us pursuant to Article 15 of the GDPR. In particular, you can request information about the purposes of data processing, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the planned storage period, the existence of the right to correction, deletion, restriction of processing, or objection, the existence of the right of appeal, the source of your data if not collected by us, as well as the existence of automated decision-making including profiling and any other meaningful detailed information about the data;
  • to request the rectification of incorrect or completion of personal data stored by us immediately pursuant to Article 16 of the GDPR;
  • to request the deletion of your personal data stored by us unless the processing is required for exercising the right to freedom of expression and information, for fulfilling a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest, or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims pursuant to Article 17 of the GDPR;
  • to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data pursuant to Article 18 of the GDPR if the accuracy of the data is disputed by you, the processing is unlawful, but you refuse to have it deleted and we no longer need the data, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or you have filed an objection to the processing in accordance with Article 21 of the GDPR;
  • to receive your personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request its transmission to another controller pursuant to Article 20 of the GDPR (data portability);
  • to revoke your consent provided to us at any time pursuant to Article 7 Paragraph 3 of the GDPR. As a result, we will no longer be able to continue the processing of data based on this consent with effect for the future; and
  • to appeal to a supervisory authority pursuant to Article 77 of the GDPR. As a rule, you can contact the supervisory authority of your usual place of residence or work, or our company headquarters.
  • Right of objection

If your personal data is processed on the basis of legitimate interests in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 (f) of the GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data in accordance with Article 21 of the GDPR provided that there are reasons for this arising from your particular situation or the objection is directed against direct mail advertising. In the latter case, you have a general right to object, which we will comply with without specifying a particular situation.

If you wish to exercise your right to revoke your consent or object, please send an email to info[at]deutsche-windtechnik.com.

16 Transfer of your personal data

Your personal data is transferred as described below.

The website is hosted by an external service provider in Germany. We ensure that data processing takes place in Germany alone. This is necessary for operating the website as well as for establishing, implementing and executing the existing user contract, and it is also possible without your consent.

In addition, data is also transferred if we are entitled or obliged to transfer data due to statutory provisions and/or official or judicial orders. In particular, this may include the provision of information for law enforcement and security purposes, or for the enforcement of intellectual property rights.

Insofar as your data is transferred to service providers to the required extent, they will only have access to your personal data to the extent necessary to fulfil their obligations. These service providers are obliged to process your personal data in accordance with the applicable data protection laws, in particular the GDPR.

We will not transmit your data to third parties without your consent beyond the aforementioned circumstances. In particular, we do not share personal data with any third country or international organisation.

17 Storage period of personal data

Regarding the period of storage, we delete personal data as soon as its storage is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of the original purpose and we are no longer bound by statutory retention periods that prevent us from deleting it. The statutory retention periods ultimately dictate the final duration of the storage of personal data. The corresponding data is routinely deleted after the period has expired. If any retention periods are applicable, then processing is restricted by blocking the data.

18 References and links

When you access Internet pages that our website links to, you may be asked again for information such as your name, address, email address, browser properties, etc. This Privacy Policy does not govern the collection, transfer or handling of personal data by third parties.

Third-party service providers may have different specific provisions regarding the collection, processing and use of personal data. We therefore recommend that you learn about how personal data is handled on third-party websites before entering your personal data on these websites.

19 Changes to the Privacy Policy

We continuously improve our website to provide you with an increasingly better service. We will always keep this Privacy Policy up-to-date and adjust it accordingly, if and to the extent this should be necessary.

We will of course inform you in good time about any changes to this Privacy Policy. For example, we will do this by sending an email to the email address that you provided. Should further consent be required from you regarding our handling of your data, we will of course obtain this consent from you before any corresponding changes go into effect.

You can access the latest version of our Privacy Policy at any time on the Internet at Privacy.
