Data protection notice for business partners
We are pleased that you are interested in our company and that you are contacting us.
The protection of your data is very important to us. With the data protection notice, we provide you with the following information in accordance with Art. 13 GDPR on the processing of your personal data in connection with our business relationship.
Further information about our company, details of the persons authorized to represent us and further contact options can be found at https://eew-group.com/imprint/.
What data do we process and for what purposes?
We only process personal data that we have received from you or, if applicable, from publicly accessible sources in the course of our business relationship.
Personal data in the sense of Art. 4 (1) GDPR can be: Names, telecommunication data and address data. In addition, we also process offer, inquiry and order data, data from the fulfillment of our contractual obligations, product data, documentation data, as well as other data comparable to the aforementioned categories.
The provision of your personal data is necessary for the initiation, implementation and processing of the contractual relationship. If it is not provided, it is unfortunately not possible for us to contact you to clarify the pre-contractual or contractual issues.
Your personal data will be processed in advance of the contractual relationship in order to carry out a compliance check. This is done to determine your suitability as a business partner and to comply with legal obligations to prevent business relationships with business partners named on sanctions lists.
On what legal basis is the processing of your personal data based?
Your personal data is processed in accordance with the legal provisions of the GDPR and the Federal Data Protection Act for the fulfillment of contractual obligations or for measures to initiate a contract (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b GDPR).
Furthermore, we may use this data for additional purposes within the scope of our business relationship.
The legal basis for the compliance check with the UN and EU sanctions lists is the fulfillment of legal obligations by our company in accordance with Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR. If data is compared with sanctions lists from third countries, the legal basis is our legitimate interest due to obligations to identify persons on sanctions lists, to prevent business relationships with them and thus to avoid sanctions against our company in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR.
How long is the data stored?
We process and store your personal data for the duration of our business relationship and at least in accordance with the statutory retention periods such as the German Commercial Code or the German Fiscal Code.
To whom is the data passed on and where is it processed?
We use the personal data only for our own purposes in the course of the business relationship.
We would like to point out that we generally assume that our e-mail correspondence is business-related and therefore forward e-mails to your representatives when employees are absent in order to provide better service.
In order to carry out the compliance check, it is necessary to pass on your personal data to third parties who carry out the check. We ensure a high level of data protection for the processor by concluding a data processing agreement in accordance with Article 28 GDPR.
The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of managing the application process. The processing may also take place electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits relevant application documents to the controller by electronic means, for example by e-mail or via a web form located on the website. If the controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions.
The legal basis for this processing is Section 26 (1) sentence 1 BDSG in conjunction with Article 88 (1) GDPR.
We also process the personal data provided to us in connection with your application in order to check your suitability for the position (or any comparable other vacancies/positions in our company) and to carry out the application process. In addition, we are obliged to carry out a compliance check on you as part of the selection process.
There is no automated decision-making.
Without the provision of the data, the application process cannot be carried out and unfortunately, we cannot consider you when filling the respective position(s).
The legal basis for checking your data against the UN and EU sanctions lists is the fulfillment of legal obligations by our company in accordance with Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR. If data is compared with sanctions lists from third countries, the legal basis is our legitimate interest due to obligations to identify persons on sanctions lists, to prevent business relationships with them and thus to avoid sanctions against our company in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR.
If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted six months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller conflict with such deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
In this case, the legal basis is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR and Section 24 (1) No. 2 BDSG. Our legitimate interest lies in the legal defense or enforcement.
If you expressly consent to a longer storage of your data, e.g. for your inclusion in a database of applicants or interested parties, the data will be further processed based on your consent. The legal basis is then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. However, you can of course revoke your consent at any time in accordance with Art. 7 (3) GDPR by declaration to us with effect for the future.
Collection and storage of personal data as well as type and purpose of their use
When visiting the website
When you visit our website www.eew-group.com, information is automatically sent to the server of our website by the browser used on your end device.

- for other administrative purposes.
The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest follows from the purposes for data collection listed above. As a rule, we do not use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person. At most, we reserve the right to do so in the event that this becomes necessary in order to clarify abusive page accesses.

Provided that you have expressly consented in accordance with Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a GDPR, we will use your e-mail address to send you our newsletter on a regular basis. To receive the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide an e-mail address.

Registration for our newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in process, i.e. after registration you will receive an e-mail in which you are asked to confirm your registration. The subsequent confirmation is logged by us for verification purposes; the time of registration and confirmation are stored together with your e-mail address.
Unsubscribing from newsletters is possible at any time via a link at the end of each newsletter.

If your inquiry does not concern EEW Holding GmbH & Co. KG itself, but concerns one of our affiliated companies in Germany, Europe and the world, we will forward such a request to the relevant group company for further processing. In this context, your contact requests will only be transmitted to group companies based outside the member states of the EU or the EEA if this is necessary for the performance of a contract between you and the group company there or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures at your request (Art. 49 (1) lit. b GDPR) or if you have again given your express consent to this (Art. 49 (1) lit. a GDPR).
Data processing for the purpose of contacting us is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a GDPR on the basis of your voluntarily given consent or, in the case of (pre-)contractual inquiries, on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR. For a transmission of your request to other group companies, there is a legitimate interest on our part, which stems from the organization of our group of companies (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR).

- you have given your express consent to this in accordance with Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a GDPR,
- the disclosure is necessary in accordance with Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f GDPR for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in the non-disclosure of your data,

- this is legally permissible and necessary according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b GDPR for the processing of contractual relationships with you.
In addition, we also use temporary cookies to optimize user-friendliness, which are stored on your end device for a certain fixed period of time. If you visit our site again to use our services, it is automatically recognized that you have already been to our site and which entries and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again.
You can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or a notice always appears before a new cookie is created. However, the complete deactivation of cookies may mean that you cannot use all the functions of our website.
The tracking measures listed below and used by us are carried out exclusively after your consent granted for this purpose on the basis of Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a GDPR. With the tracking measures that are used as a result, we want to ensure a needs-based design and the ongoing optimization of our website. On the other hand, we use the tracking measures to statistically record the use of our website and evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our offer for you. The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be found in the information texts for the corresponding tracking tools.
i) Google Analytics
For the purpose of demand-oriented design and ongoing optimization of our pages, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc (https://www.google.de intl/en/about/)(Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; hereinafter "Google"). On the other hand, we use the tracking measures to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our offer for you. We carry out this processing exclusively on the basis of your consent given to us in advance (see above under Cookies)
Google Analytics creates pseudonymized usage profiles for us. The information generated by the Google Analytics cookie about your use of this website, such as
- Browser type/version,
- operating system used,
- Referrer URL (the previously visited page),
- Host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
- time of the server request,
are transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website and internet use for the purposes of market research and demand-oriented design of these web pages. This information may also be transferred to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on our behalf. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with other Google data. The IP addresses are anonymized so that an assignment is not possible (IP masking).
You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).
As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent the collection by Google Analytics by clicking on this link: Deactivate Google Analytics. An opt-out cookie will be set that prevents future collection of your data when visiting this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.
Further information on data protection in connection with Google Analytics can be found, for example, in the Google Analytics help (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de).
In order to ensure a level of security for the processing of data in the USA that corresponds to that of the GDPR, we conclude so-called standard contractual clauses with service providers. In addition, the transfer of personal data is possible if the data subject has given his or her express consent to the processing pursuant to Article 49 (1) sentence 1 a GDPR and has been informed in advance about the associated risks. Therefore, it is hereby expressly pointed out once again to legal risks such as access by US authorities to your data as well as the limited legal protection options against this.
ii) Google Fonts
We use Google Fonts on our Internet pages. This enables the display of fonts. Google Fonts is a service of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California, 94043, USA ("Google"). The integration of these web fonts takes place via a server call, usually via a Google server in the USA. Through this, the following may be transmitted to the server and stored by Google:
- Name of the browser used
- Version of the browser
- Website from which the request was initiated
- Operating system of the user
- Screen resolution of the user
- IP address of the user
- Language settings of the browser or operating system that the user is using.
Google assures that the collection and storage of personal data in connection with the use of Google Fonts is kept to a minimum. In particular, no cookies are used when Google Fonts are used. Your data collected in connection with the use of Google Fonts will not be merged with other Google data files (for example, from the use of Gmail).
The font files themselves are temporarily stored by Google for one year: Because millions of websites reference the same fonts, they are cached after the first website is visited and immediately appear on all other websites visited later. This, according to Google's own claims, ensures that website visitors send very few queries to Google. Google states that they only see one CSS request per font family, per day, per browser.
Google uses the font usage data in anonymized form to create statistical analysis about the popularity of certain font types on the Internet.
To use Google Fonts, the browser you use must connect to our server. Your data will not be passed on to Google in this way. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the legitimate interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font will be used by your computer.
Use of a Linkedin profile
As the operator of the Linkedin profile, we, EEW Holding GmbH & Co. KG, together with the operator of the Linkedin social network, are the data controller within the meaning of Article 4 No. 7 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). When visiting our Linkedin profile, personal data is processed by the responsible parties. In the following, we inform you about what data is involved, how it is processed and what rights you have in this regard.
We would like to point out that you use the website and its functions on your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of the interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating, etc.). We may use your comments and ratings as an opportunity to respond to them with comments of our own. For this, we claim our legitimate interest in interacting with active users of our profile (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR).
For questions of any kind, it may be possible to contact us via personal messages. In doing so, we may automatically be informed of your username. Further information may be provided voluntarily, in particular options for contacting us outside Linkedin. Data processing for the purpose of contacting us is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR on the basis of your voluntarily given consent. The personal data processed by us for the purpose of contacting you will be automatically deleted after the request you have made has been dealt with, unless this conflicts with statutory retention obligations (for example, because a contractual relationship has been established between us on the basis of your request).
When you visit our Linkedin profile, Linkedin collects, among other things, your IP address and other information that is present in the form of cookies on your PC. This information is used to provide us, as the operator of the social media profile, with statistical information about the use of the website.
The data collected about you in this context is processed by Linkedin and, if necessary, transferred to countries outside the European Union. What information the provider receives and how it is used is described in general terms by the provider in its data usage guidelines. There you will also find information about contact options to Linkedin as well as about the setting options for advertisements.
In what way Linkedin uses the data from the visit of the Linkedin profile for its own purposes, to what extent activities on the websites are assigned to individual users, how long these data are stored and whether data are passed on to third parties, is not conclusively and clearly stated by and is not known to us. When you access our Linkedin profile, the IP address assigned to your terminal device is transmitted to Linkedin. If necessary, Linkedin is thus able to assign IP addresses to individual users. If you are currently logged in to a social media provider as a user, a cookie with your identifier is located on your end device. This enables the provider to track that you have visited this page and how you have used it. If you want to avoid this, you should log out of the respective social media provider or deactivate the "stay logged in" function, delete the cookies present on your device and close and restart your browser.
You can find information about your rights under the point Data subject rights.
Linkedin provides more detailed information on this at the following link: https://de.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy?trk=homepage-basic_join-form-privacy-policy
Integration of YouTube videos
We have integrated YouTube videos into our online offer, which are stored on www.YouTube.com and can be played directly from our website. YouTube is another service provided by Google. YouTube videos are all embedded in "enhanced privacy mode", which means that no data about users is transmitted to YouTube if they do not play the videos. Only when a user plays the videos is the following data transferred. We have no influence on this data transmission.
By visiting the website, YouTube receives the information that the user has accessed the corresponding subpage of our online offer when a video is played. In addition, further information about the use of this online offer (including the IP address of the user) is transmitted to a YouTube server in the USA and stored there. This occurs regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account via which the user is logged in or whether no user account exists. If the user is logged in to YouTube, his data is directly assigned to his account. If a user does not want the assignment with his profile at YouTube, he must therefore log out before activating the button. YouTube stores data as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about the user's activities on our online offer. The user has a right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby he must contact YouTube to exercise this right.
In order to ensure a level of security for the processing of data in the USA that corresponds to that of the GDPR, we conclude so-called standard contractual clauses with service providers. In addition, a transfer of personal data is possible insofar as the data subject has given his or her express consent to the processing pursuant to Art. 49 (1) p. 1 lit. a GDPR and has been informed in advance about the associated risks. Therefore, it is hereby expressly pointed out once again to legal risks such as access by US authorities to your data as well as to the limited legal protection options against this.
