Privacy Policy

Data Protection

Thank you for your interest in our website, www.career.cascoauto.com. The protection of personal data is of great importance to us. The processing of your personal data by Casco Schoeller GmbH is based on a legal basis and, if necessary, on the basis of your consent. The most important legal foundation as of 25/05/2018 is the so-called EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The following will inform you about the processing of your personal data when you visit our website, www.career.cascoauto.com.

 

1. Controller

 

The controller in the context of your use of the website is Casco Schoeller GmbH (hereinafter: “CASCO SCHOELLER”) unless other companies of the Casco Schoeller Group are expressly named as the controller.

 

2. Surfing CascoAuto.com

 

For what purposes do we process your data?   

If you visit our website, your browser will contact our web server to retrieve the pages you want. In principle, you don’t have to sign up or identify yourself to use this feature. However, the assignment of requests and feedback from our server is based on your IP address, which may create a reference to your person.

In particular, personal data such as your IP address will be used as part of a HTTPS retrieval to our web server. These connection data are processed by our web server to allow access to the website. If necessary, it is also possible to process form data that you enter.

In addition, the respective HTTPS request is recorded in a logfile. We use this for technical troubleshooting and to be able to defend against and resolve attacks on our systems. In addition, we create analyses from the logfiles that are already stored in order to optimise our websites. The analysis as such takes place in an anonymous form, i.e. by summary of retrieval data, so that the results no longer have a personal reference.

 

On what legal basis do we process your data?     

The legal basis for the processing of your data depends on the specific purpose of your visit:

  • When you visit our website to create contracts or business relations with us, the legal basis for processing your data is Article 6 (1) Lit. b GDPR (initiation or execution of a contract).
  • The processing is also usually carried out on the basis of our legitimate interests pursuant to Article 6 (1) Lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest is to provide a website for general information and communication purposes and for the presentation of our company.

The processing of logfiles is usually done on the basis of our legitimate interests pursuant to Article 6 (1) Lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest is to protect our systems from attacks and, if necessary, to take legal action against attackers and to further develop our websites for economic purposes.

 

Do you have an obligation to provide your data and what happens if you decide not to do so?

Use of the website or, if applicable, of forms on the website, is not possible without the processing of your connection and, where applicable, form data.

 

To whom will your data be shared and/or who is involved in the processing of your data?  

In principle, processing is fully automatic. Our website is operated on our behalf by Symbio in The Netherlands via cloud-based servers from Rackspace in London who are acting on our behalf (Art. 28 GDPR) as service providers for hosting services. Our IT department has access to the logfiles. These are used by the responsible internal departments for the above-mentioned purposes and are also transferred where necessary to external recipients (in particular prosecuting authorities for tracking attacks).

 

How long will your data be stored?   

The logfile data are stored for 24 days. All other data will be deleted immediately after the HTTPS request has been completed.

 

3. Contact forms, email communications

 

For what purposes do we process your data?   

Our website offers you the possibility to contact us by email and/or via a contact form. In particular, we offer applicants the opportunity to apply for job vacancies on the website and to upload additional documents (e.g. their CV). In this case, the information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your contact request or application, as well as for possible follow-up questions. If you contact us with a request or we contact you, we will of course also process your personal data such as name, address, telephone number as well as the contents of the communication for the purpose of carrying out the exchange with you.

 

On what legal basis do we process your data?     

The processing of your data within the framework of communications via the contact form or email takes place based on Article 6 (1) lit. b GDPR to the extent that the exchange is related to the initiation or fulfilment of a contract with you.

Furthermore, the legal basis depends on the specific purpose of the exchange, in most cases Article 6 (1) Lit. f GDPR (our legitimate interest to conduct business correspondence or, for example, to answer inquiries regarding data protection).

 

Is there an obligation to provide your data and what happens if you decide not to do so?

You are not obligated to provide your data. Communications via email or the contact form, or the submission of an application, however, is not possible without the processing of your personal data.

 

To whom will your data be shared and/or who is involved in the processing of your data?  

We will only pass on your data internally to the department responsible for your request. This may include forwarding to other companies in the CASCO SCHOELLER Group.

 

How long will your data be stored?   

Your personal data will be deleted, as far as they are no longer necessary for the exchange with you. The data may be extended on the basis of Article 6 (1) Lit. c GDPR in conjunction with the relevant statutory retention periods (in particular according to trade and tax law). With business correspondence this usually applies six years after the end of the year in which the data was received.

 

4. Use of Google Analytics and cookies

4.1 Processing

 

For what purposes do we process your data?   

We use the service “Google Analytics”. This allows a data traffic analysis for our website (web analytics). This helps us to constantly improve the information and structure of our website. Using Google Analytics, we can, inter alia, evaluate which sections and subpages of our site are visited, and for how often and for how long, and which other websites users find us from.

To use the Google Analytics services, we use so-called cookies and similar technologies. A cookie is a small text file consisting of letters and numbers that is stored on your device when you visit a website. When you visit this website on your computer or mobile device, a cookie contains information that is stored for the duration of your visit (called session cookies) or for a longer period of time (so-called permanent cookies). When browsing the website, our system, or other websites that recognise this cookie, can query it. This makes it possible to distinguish your device from other visitors’ devices while browsing the website.

For the Google Analytics services, the company Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States) processes on our behalf various usage data of the users of our website (such as, in addition to the above, also which sites are visited on CascoAuto.com, how long you visit these pages, how often you revisit our site) and assigns it to an anonymous reference number. Additionally, certain information will be processed that saved in the _utmz cookie on the website operator from whom you reached us (in particular the URL of the previous site, and, if applicable, the search engine and search terms used). These usage data are used for non-personalised analyses of the use of our website.

 

On what legal basis do we process your data?     

Data processing is carried out on the basis of Article 6 (1) Lit. f GDPR. The processing serves the legitimate interest of our users to get the best possible user experience. It also serves our legitimate business interests to optimise our website, to further improve its reach, usability and content, and thus ultimately to promote our business.

 

Is there an obligation to provide your data and what happens if you decide not to do so?

There is no obligation to provide your usage data for the above-mentioned purposes. You can also use the features of the site if you choose not to do so. You may object to the use of your personal information by installing the Google Analytics’ “opt-out” browser plugins (cf.  4.2).

 

To whom will your data be shared and/or who is involved in the processing of your data?  

User data will be sent to Google and automated and processed there on our behalf. In principle, the analysis options of CASCO SCHOELLER are only used internally by our IT and online marketing departments.

 

Will your data be sent to a third country or an international organisation?  

In individual cases, usage data is sent to Google servers in the United States of America. Google is certified per the so-called EU-US Privacy Shield, which ensures an adequate level of data protection.

 

How long will your data be stored?

Your user data will be stored by us for 18 months and then automatically deleted.
