Ensinger GmbH thanks you for visiting its website and for your trust and interest in our products. The protection of your personal data during processing, and thus the preservation of your personal rights to informational self-determination, is a central concern for us. We would like you to feel safe at all times when visiting our website.

In the following we will give you an overview of the information we capture during your visit to our website and how these data are used:

Personal data is information that relates to you personally. This may include, for example, name, address, telephone number, email address. Your personal data will be stored and processed according to the German and European data protection provisions.

We have taken technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal information against loss, destruction, manipulation, and unauthorized access. All of our employees and any third parties that are involved in data processing have been obligated to adhere to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“EU-DSGVO”) and the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz) and to treat personal data as private and confidential. When personal data are processed via our website, their transfer will be encrypted in order to prevent misuse of data by third parties. Our security measures are regularly revised in accordance with technological developments.

There is no legal or contractual requirement to disclose personal data in order to use Ensinger GmbH's Internet website.

Your internet browser automatically transmits data to our web server when you access our website. These data include, among other things, the date and time of access, the URL of the referring website, file retrieved, quantity of transmitted data, browser type and version, operating system, and your IP address (“access data”).

b) Cookies

Depending on your browser's settings, we collect information about your use of our website by utilizing cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer when you visit our website. Cookies help us to determine frequency of use and the number of users of our website and to design our offerings in a way that is most comfortable and efficient for you. Firstly, we use so-called “session cookies,” which are temporarily stored solely for the duration of your use of our website. In addition, we use “permanent cookies” to record information about computers that repeatedly access our website. Because of this, we are able to offer you better user guidance, “recognize” you, and present you with the most varied website possible, as well as new content. Specifically, we use permanent cookies to record the number of your visits, the duration of visits on our website, the beginning and end of use, and product interest.

The content of a permanent cookie is limited to an identification number. Name, IP address, and other information concerning your actual identity are not stored, nor do we create any individual profiles concerning your use behavior. Permanent cookies are automatically erased. The period of storage varies depending on the cookie. You can erase the permanent cookies in your browser's security settings at any time.

If cookies are used in the processing of personal data, the processing takes place on the basis of Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f of the EU-DSGVO. This is the basis of our legitimate interest in the advertising.

c) Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a website analysis service of Google Inc. (www.google.de). Google Analytics uses “cookies,” text files stored on your computer that enable an analysis to be made of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie regarding your use of this website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In the event of activation of IP anonymization on this website, however, your IP address will first be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or other signatory states to the Convention on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. IP anonymization is active on this website. On behalf of Ensinger GmbH, Google uses this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity, and provide other services to Ensinger GmbH related to website use and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data. Your data will be deleted after a maximum of 14 months.

You can stop the cookies from being stored by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser software (see section 6, below); however, we wish to point out that doing so may mean you will not be able to enjoy the full functionality of this website.

The processing of personal data by Google Analytics takes place on the basis of Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f of the EU-DSGVO. This is the basis of our legitimate interest in the advertising.

Based on certification under the EU-US Privacy Shield Google guarantees compliance with the data protection regulations of the EU, even when data is processed in the USA.
When you access the integrated component Google Maps, Google stores a cookie on your device via your web browser. Your user settings and data are processed in order to display the relevant location and produce directions. It cannot be ruled out that Google will use servers in the USA.

By creating the connection to Google in this way, Google can identify the website from which your request is sent and the IP address to which the directions must be sent.

aa) Pursuant to your respective consent, you subscribe to our insulbar® newsletter or our impulse magazine, or are included in our press distribution list. We inform you regularly about our goods and services in the area of plastics solutions in our newsletters, impulse magazine, and press releases.

bb) We use the so-called double-opt-in procedure for registration for our insulbar® newsletter, impulse magazine, or press distribution list. That means that, after you register, we will send you an e-mail to the indicated e-mail address, in which we will ask you for confirmation that you want our insulbar® newsletter, impulse magazine, or press releases to be sent to you. If you do not confirm your registration within four days, your information will be blocked and automatically erased after six weeks. In addition, we store the IP addresses you have used and the time of the application and confirmation. The purpose of the procedure is to be able to document your registration and, if necessary, clarify potential misuse of your personal data. Therefore, we will store your e-mail address, IP address, and the time of your application and confirmation for as long as necessary to document your registration and confirmation, if claims, particularly civil and/or competitive claims, are asserted against us. In any case, your e-mail address, IP address, and the time of your registration will be erased if the respective claims have been time-barred.

cc) The only mandatory information for sending the newsletters is your e-mail address. To register to have impulse magazine or the press releases sent, we also need your first and last name and your mailing address if you have selected dispatch by post. The specification of further data is voluntary and will be used to be able to address you personally. You have no legal or contractual obligation to provide personal data as part of the registration for or confirmation of our newsletters, impulse magazine, or press releases.

j) Social Media

Our website integrates so-called 2-click social buttons from Facebook, LinkedIn and Xing. If, when using our website, you are logged into one of the above networks at the same time, no data will be automatically transferred. Only when you activate the respective button with a 2nd click will a direct connection be established between your browser and the server of the selected social media service. In this way, the provider of the network is informed that you have accessed our website with your IP address, and would like to share the site you are visiting on the respective social network. By clicking once more, you agree to the transfer of the respective data and to sharing the page.
In addition, so-called social bookmarks from the same services are integrated on the website. Social bookmarks are web links to a company’s social media channels. After clicking on the link or the corresponding image, you will be transferred to the respective provider’s website, which means that only then will user information be transferred to the respective provider.
Please note that we do not receive any information about the contents and use of the data transferred from the respective provider. For more detailed information about how your personal data is dealt with when you use social networks, please refer to the respective provider’s privacy policy.

Your application data will be stored until the final decision concerning the filling of the advertised position and will then be erased.

In such case, your application data will also be processed for purposes of the implementation of the employment relationship.

Your application data will be processed on the basis of Article 88 paragraph 1 of the EU-DSGVO in conjunction with §26 paragraph 1 sentence 1 of the Federal Data Protection Act.

4. Transmission of personal data to third countries 

We also intend to transmit your personal data to recipients in so-called “third countries.” “Third countries” are countries outside of the European Union and the Convention on the European Economic Area, in which it cannot be assumed that a level of data protection exists that is comparable to that of the European Union.

Prior to any such transmission, we will make sure that the necessary and reasonable level of protection is guaranteed in the respective third country or on the part of the recipient in the third country. This can result, in particular, from a so-called “Reasonableness Resolution” of the European Commission, by which a reasonable level of data protection is determined to exist for a specific third country as a whole. Alternatively, we can also base the data transmission on the so-called “EU Standard Contract Clauses” agreed upon with a recipient or -- in the case of recipients in the USA that possess a valid EU-US Privacy Shield Certification - compliance with the principles of the so-called “EU-US Privacy Shield.”

We will be happy to provide you with additional information upon request concerning the suitable and reasonable guarantees with respect to adherence to a reasonable level of data protection; you will find the contact information at the end of this data protection declaration. You will also find information concerning the participants in the EU-US Privacy Shield here.

5. Your rights in connection with the processing of personal data

You have specific rights in accordance with the applicable provisions of data protection law -- particularly the EU-DSGVO and the corresponding provisions under the applicable law of a member state of the European Union:

You can demand information concerning the stored personal data relating to you.

  • You can demand the correction of incorrect personal data
  • You can demand the erasure or restriction of processing of your personal data and
  • You can demand to receive the personal data that you have provided in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format.

If you have given us consent, you also have the right to revoke your consent with future effect at any time.

You can assert the aforementioned rights against us, for example, by means of a communication using one of the contact methods indicated at the end of this data protection declaration.

You also have the opportunity to contact the competent supervisory authority in the event of complaints concerning the handling of your personal data.

6. Your right to object

You have the right to object to the processing of personal data relating to you that takes place on the basis of Article 6 paragraph 1 letter e or f EU-DSGVO at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation.

Ensinger GmbH will no longer process the personal data relating to you, unless it can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or unless the processing is used for asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.

If the personal data relating to you are processed in order to engage in direct advertising, you have the right to object to the processing of the personal data relating to you for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling to the extent that it is associated with such direct advertising.

If you object to the processing for purposes of direct advertising, the personal data relating to you will no longer be processed for these purposes.

In the context of the use of information society services -- and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC -- you have the opportunity to exercise your right of objection by means of an automated proceeding, in which technical specifications are used.
