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. Should personal data be requested, which we do not need for the fulfilment of a contract or for the protection of legitimate interests, the transmission of data to us is based on consent given by you pursuant to Article 6 Paragraph 1 (a) of the GDPR.

10. Application procedure

On our website, we publish job offers that you can apply for by email. In addition, we offer you the opportunity to register via our e-recruiting tool and to apply directly. If you decide to apply for a job vacancy, we will process your application data in connection with filling the position for which you have applied.

"NOTE: Please note that if you provide any documents that go beyond the required information, these documents cannot be taken into consideration by the Deutsche Windtechnik Group during the application process. Please take special care not to send any data concerning health to us. These are not part of the application. Furthermore, there is no obligation to add a photo to your application. This does not result in a disadvantage for you in the application process. "

The processing and storage of your personal data will be carried out for the duration of the application procedure, if necessary. After fulfilment of the purpose, but after 6 months at the latest, we will delete them. If the storage of the data is no longer necessary for the execution of the application procedure and if there is no legal retention period for this or if we do not have your consent, which would justify a longer storage period, the data will be deleted immediately. 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 with the subject of the deletion. Your data will of course be processed confidentially and in accordance with applicable data protection regulations only as part of the application process.

Of course, we also implement the legally required data security measures to ensure that your data is not altered or accessed without authorisation. An applicant is selected and the position is filled within the Deutsche Windtechnik Group, in cooperation with the respective HR departments, management and the supervisors of the specialist departments. Deutsche Windtechnik consists of several companies in different locations. Based on your application data, the recruiting department can also investigate further opportunities for filling positions within the Deutsche Windtechnik Group. For this activity and forwarding within the Deutsche Windtechnik Group, additional consent from you is necessary.

As an international company, our company manages its employees on a global scale and authorized employees can access your data from any country in which our company operates. As a result, your application data may be transferred during the application process to a responsible department within the company group that is located outside your home country or the country to which you are applying. Our company guarantees data protection for data transfer to third countries by creating a uniform level of data protection.

If you transfer the application documents unencrypted, please note that there is a risk that unauthorised third parties may intercept this data and use it without authorisation. Please provide us with the password for an encrypted email application by calling +49 (0)421 69 105 332.

Our e-recruiting tool is linked to the digital personnel file. If you are hired by our company, we transfer the data from your application into our digital personnel file.

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:

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:

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

Use of Google Tag Manager

We use Google Tag Manager, which is provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. The purpose of Google Tag Manager is to manage website tags via an interface. It enables us to precisely control the integration of services on our website. This allows us to flexibly integrate additional services in order to evaluate user access to our website.

The use of the Google Tag Manager requires your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 a) GDPR, which we can obtain with our Cookie Consent Tool. This consent provides the legal basis for processing the data collected. We only use Google Tag Manager if we obtain consent via the Cookie Consent Tool.

The specific storage duration of the processed data is determined by Google Ireland Limited and cannot be influenced by us. You can find further information in the Google Tag Manager privacy policy at:

Use of Google Analytics

Our website uses the web analysis service Google (Universal) Analytics, operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google"). Google (Universal) Analytics uses "cookies. Cookies are text files that enable an analysis of your use of our website. Cookies are stored on your device. Information recorded in the cookie about your use of our website (including your IP address in abbreviated form) is transferred from your browser to a Google server and stored there. Here a transmission to the servers of Google LLC. with location in the USA is possible. This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics exclusively with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". This configuration of the web analysis service ensures anonymization of your IP address by shortening it and excludes direct personal references. The shortening of your IP address by Google takes place within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is it possible for the full IP address to be transmitted to a Google LLC. server in the USA and shortened there.

In the event of such an exception, such processing will take place in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR based on our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behaviour for optimisation and marketing purposes. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, generate reports on website activity and provide us with supplementary services relating to website activity and internet usage. Your IP address transmitted by Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data stored by Google. You can prevent cookies from being saved by configuring your browser.

In this case, we would like to point out that not all functions of our website may be fully usable. In addition, you can prevent Google from collecting the data generated by cookies and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google. This is possible by installing the following browser plugin:

You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your right of revocation, please follow the above-mentioned objection procedure.

Use of Matomo

We use the web analysis tool "Matomo" to design our websites according to your needs. Matomo creates user profiles based on browser fingerprints (hash value of the operating system, browser, browser plugins, anonymized IP address and browser language).

The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, being our legitimate interest in finding out how often our web pages have been accessed by different users.

You can object to processing by Matomo at any time.

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:

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

Use of Indeed

This website also uses a web analytics tool by Indeed (Indeed Ireland Operations, Ltd., 124 St. Stephen's Green, Dublin 2, Ireland). To analyse the use of this website and of (if applicable), certain usage data submitted by your browser will be collected and evaluated by Indeed. In order to collect this usage data, Indeed may use one or more cookies. In addition, the IP address assigned to your device at that time as well as a browser-specific identifier will be transmitted. The IP address is required solely for session identification purposes and for geolocation (down to the city level).

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.

General information on presence in social networks

We use our presence on social networks to showcase our company in the best possible way, to communicate with you as a user, customer or interested party, and to be able to inform you about the services we offer.

You can find us on the following platforms and social networks

  • Facebook
  • Instagram
  • LinkedIn
  • YouTube
  • Twitter
  • Xing

When using social networks, data is processed outside of the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA). A level of data protection equivalent to the protection provided in the EU cannot be guaranteed in all countries outside the EU.

For this reason, there can be risks for you as a user if the transmitted data is processed in so-called third countries that have an inadequate level of data protection.

This makes it difficult to enforce known user rights. In addition, your data may be processed by the provider in the third country in ways that are not in your interest.
If providers from the USA have certified themselves under the so-called Privacy Shield Agreement (a data protection agreement between the USA and the EU) these providers are obliged to comply with the data protection standards of the EU.

The processing purposes pursued by social networks usually differ from ours. Data that is collected from you by social networks is processed for the purposes of market research, advertising and the creation of user profiles for personalised advertising (e.g. Facebook, Google, Instagram, etc.).

This is achieved using cookies that record user behaviour and enable a profile to be created for the user. In the case of Facebook, a user profile is also created for people who do not have a registered account on Facebook.
You will find a specific list of the processing purposes of the user data in the Privacy Policies of the corresponding providers. By making the appropriate settings in your user account, you can restrict the creation of your profile, at least to a limited extent. For information on the exact procedure, please read the relevant Privacy Policy of the corresponding provider.

Facebook Fanpage

When you visit our Facebook page, Facebook collects information such as your IP address and other information that is stored on your PC in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us, as operators of Facebook pages, with statistical information about the use of the Facebook page. More information on this can be found on Facebook at the following link: . It is not possible for us to draw conclusions about individual users by means of the statistical information transmitted. We only use this information to respond to the interests of our users and to continuously improve our online presence and ensure its quality. We only collect your data via our fan page in order to provide you with the opportunity to communicate and interact with us. This collection usually includes your name, news content, commentary content as well as the profile information "publicly" provided by you.

The processing of your personal data for our above-mentioned purposes is based on our legitimate business and communicative interest in providing an information and communication channel in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 f) GDPR. If you as a user have given your consent to data processing to the respective provider of the social network, the legal basis for processing shall extend to Art. 6 Para. 1 a), Art. 7 GDPR.

Due to the fact that the actual data processing is carried out by the provider of the social network, our access to your data is limited. Only the provider of the social network is authorized to have full access to your data. Because of this, only the provider can directly take and implement appropriate measures to fulfill your user rights (request for information, request for deletion, objection). The assertion of corresponding rights is therefore most effective directly against the respective provider.

Should you nevertheless require help in this matter, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Rights of data subjects

With the Facebook "Page Controller Addendum", the rights and obligations to be observed together with Facebook are shown. These can be found under the following link:

If you request information, we will forward it to Facebook and ask you to fill out the appropriate contact form at .

Below you will find a detailed description of the respective data processing by the providers and their possibilities of objection (so-called opt-out) via the corresponding links to the websites of the 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

16. Transfer of your personal data

our 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.
