Collection of General Information

The use of our website is generally possible without the need to collect personal data. Personal data (such as name, address, email address) is only collected and processed if, for example, you use our online application portal (link to data protection statement online application), contact us by email or via our website’s contact form. When you submit personal data via our online application portal, BEOS AG will analyse, process and use your application data for internal purposes within the framework of application management. Further information can be found in the data protection statement for online applications (link). Personal data will not be passed on to third parties without your explicit consent.

The website operator (or its Web space provider) collects data each time the website is accessed (server log files). This access data includes: name of the retrieved web page or file, the date and time of retrieval, the volume of data transferred, notification of successful retrieval, the browser type and version, the user's operating system, the referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider. The website operator evaluates this server log data only for statistical purposes to support the site’s operation, security and optimisation. This data will not be used to identify you personally. However, the operator reserves the right to review the log data after the fact if there are specific indications that lead to reasonable suspicion of unlawful usage.

 

Cookies

The BEOS AG website uses cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your device (PC, smartphone, etc.) when you access our website. Cookies are widely used to improve the user-friendliness of websites (e.g. by remembering login data); they also serve to gather statistical data about the website’s usage, to help make websites more efficient. Users can manage the ways cookies are used. Most browsers have an option to restrict or completely refuse the storage of cookies. However, please note, without cookies your use of our website, and in particular your user experience, will be limited. You can manage many online ad cookies used by companies via the American website www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU site http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/.

Many websites and servers use cookies. Most cookies contain a unique identifier called a cookie ID. This cookie ID consists of a string of characters and allows Internet pages and servers to recognise the user’s specific Internet browser in which the cookie has been stored. In this way, websites and servers you visit are able to determine which browser you are using and help to distinguish your browser from others. In short, a specific Internet browser can be recognised and identified by its unique cookie ID.

The use of cookies enables BEOS AG to provide users of this website with more user-friendly services. This would not be possible without the use of cookies.

Cookies help us to optimise the information and services on our website for your benefit. As explained above, cookies enable us to recognise the individual users of our website. By recognising the user, we can make it easier for users to enjoy our website. For example, users of a website that uses cookies do not have to re-enter their login data each time they visit the website because this is done automatically by the website and the cookie stored on the user’s computer system. Another example is using cookies to make online shopping easier. The online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed in their virtual shopping basket via a cookie.

You may prevent our website from storing cookies at any time by means of an appropriate setting on your Internet browser, which will allow you to permanently opt out of using cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been created can be deleted at any time via your Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If you deactivate the creation of cookies in your Internet browser, you may not be able to use all of the functions of our website.

 

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (‘Google’). Google Analytics uses ‘cookies’, text files that are stored on your computer to enable an analysis of how the website is used. The information generated by cookies about usage patterns for this website are transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there.  If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will first shorten (anonymise) the IP address of users within Member States of the European Union as well as other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. IP anonymisation is active on this website. On behalf of the website provider, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider. The IP address obtained from your browser for the services provided by Google Analytics will not be associated with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do so, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. Furthermore, you can prevent Google’s collection and use of data (cookies and IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en As an alternative to this browser add-on, or for browsers on mobile devices, please click this link  to prevent collection of your data by Google Analytics when visiting this website in future.

Right to erasure

You have the right to obtain the erasure of personal data concerning you without undue delay, and BEOS is obliged to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies:

  1. The personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.

  4. The personal data have been unlawfully processed.
  5. The personal data have to be erased for compliance with a legal obligation in Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
  6. The personal data have been collected in relation to the offer of information society services referred to in Article 8(1).
  7. If one of the above-mentioned reasons applies and a data subject wishes to have personal data stored by TesT GmbH erased, he or she can contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The employee of TesT GmbH will arrange for the request for erasure to be complied with immediately.
  8. If the personal data has been made public by TesT GmbH and our company, as the person responsible, is obliged to erase the personal data pursuant to Article 17(1), TesT GmbH shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform other persons responsible for data processing who process the published personal data, that the data subject has requested the erasure of all links to these personal data or of copies or duplications of these personal data by these other persons responsible for data processing, insofar as the processing is no longer necessary. The employee of TesT GmbH will make the necessary arrangements in individual cases.

If the personal data have been made public by BEOS AG and if our company, as the person responsible, is obliged to erase the personal data pursuant to Article 17(1), BEOS AG shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform other persons responsible for data processing who process the published personal data, that the data subject has requested that these other persons responsible for data processing delete all links to this personal data or copies or duplications of these personal data, insofar as such processing is no longer necessary.

 

Right to restriction of processing

The data subject shall have the right to obtain from the controller restriction of processing where one of the following applies:

  1. The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal dat
  2. The processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests the restriction of their use instead.
  3. The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by the data subject for the establishment exercise or defence of legal claims.
  4. The data subject has objected to processing pursuant to Article21(1) pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.

 

Right to data portability

The data subject shall have the right to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which he or she has provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from BEOS AG to which the personal data have been provided, where:

  1. The processing is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) or point (a) of Article 9(2) or on a contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1); and
  2. The processing is carried out by automated means.

 

Right to object

The data subject shall have the right to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1), including profiling based on those provisions.

In the event of an objection, BEOS AG will not process your data further, unless there are legitimate grounds for BEOS AG to override your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If your data are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you may object to such processing at any time. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is connected with such direct marketing. Your personal data will then no longer be processed for this purpose.

 

Legal basis for processing

The processing of personal data is based on the legality described in Article 6. Primarily for the fulfilment of a contract with the data subject (point (b) of Article 6(1)) or by consent of the data subject to the processing of his or her personal data (point (a) of Article 6(1)).

 

Data protection for job applications

The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing job applications. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends their application documents to the controller by electronic means, for example by email or via a web form on the website. If BEOS AG and the applicant conclude an employment contract, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory regulations. If BEOS AG does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents shall be automatically deleted two months after notification of the decision of refusal, provided that no other legitimate interests of BEOS AG override the process of deletion. Other legitimate interests in this sense could be, for example, a burden of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

 

Automated decision-making

The data subject shall have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly significantly affects him or her. This shall not apply if the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller; or (2) is authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests; or (3) is based on the data subject’s explicit consent.

If the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion of a contract between the data subject and the data controller or (2) is taken with the express consent of the data subject, BEOS AG shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interest, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.

If the data subject wishes to assert rights relating to automated decisions, he or she may contact the data controller at any time.

 

Online presence in social media

BEOS AG maintains an online presence and uses social networks and platforms to inform, engage and interact with its customers, partners, (potential) employees and users, and to ensure that they are kept up-to-date about current BEOS news.

Users should be aware that their data may be transferred and processed outside the European Union. This may give rise to certain risks for users, e.g. making it potentially more difficult for users to enforce their rights. Providers who are certified under the Privacy Shield framework are committed to complying with EU data protection standards.

Social networks and other platforms have their own data protection regulations (see links below), which shall apply even to the content we disseminate and the social media presences we maintain on such platforms.

Should you wish to request information and/or assert you user rights, you can do so most effectively by contacting the respective providers directly. Only the providers themselves have access to their users’ data and can take appropriate measures and provide information. Should you nevertheless require help, you can contact us at any time.

 

Use of Facebook Plugins

Our website uses Social Plugins from the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.
