2. Collection and Storing of Personal Data as well as Method and Purpose of their Use
2.1 When visiting the website

When viewing our website www.snp-online.de, the browser used on your terminal device sends information to the server of our website automatically. Such information is stored on a temporary basis in a so-called log file. In the process, the following information is collected without your involvement and stored until the automated erasure:

  • IP address of the requesting computer;
  • Date and time of access;
  • Name and URL of the retrieved file;
  • Website from which the access occurs (referrer URL);
  • Browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer; as well as
  • Name of your access provider.

We process the mentioned data for the following purposes:

  • To ensure the smooth connection buildup of the website;
  • To ensure the convenient use of our website;
  • Evaluation of system security and stability; as well as
  • For other administrative purposes.

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 f) GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), according to which "the processing is lawful if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject (affected person) which require protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child". Our legitimate interest results from the data collection purposes listed above. In no event will we use the collected data for drawing conclusions relating to your person.

Moreover, when you visit our website, we use cookies as well as analyzer services. For more information in this context, please consult sections 4 and 5 of this Data Protection Policy.

2.2 When subscribing to our newsletter

If you gave your express consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 a) GDPR to the sending of our newsletter per email with information on current news, important developments of the law or other contents of relevance for you or your company, as well as information about or invitations to events/fairs etc., we will use your email address to send you our newsletter on a regular basis. To receive the newsletter it is sufficient to indicate the title, first and second name, as well as a valid email address; moreover, at least one field of law has to be selected. These data will be stored.

In addition, in the subscription process, the host name of the accessing computer (IP address) and the time of the server request will be stored. When you subscribe to our newsletter, we send a confirmation email to the email address indicated in the subscription; we store this confirmation email, too. We use such data exclusively to prove that we send the newsletter only if expressly ordered by the recipient. The legal basis of storing in this context is Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR. Data processing is made in the interest to maintain evidence of the consents to our newsletter.

You may withdraw the consent you gave at any time be unsubscribing the newsletter. You may unsubscribe at any time, e.g. by using the link at the end of each newsletter or on our website. Alternatively, you may as well send your request to unsubscribe to datenschutz@snp-online.de at any time.

The aforementioned data will be erased once they are no longer required to pursue the purposes mentioned above. We will therefore store your data as set out above for the time your newsletter subscription is in effect.

Furthermore, we collect data on when and how frequently the individual newsletter issues are read. We gather such data on an anonymous, statistical basis, i.e. we do not store data revealing which individual recipient opened an email.

2.3 When using our contact form

In case of questions of any type, we offer you the option to establish contact with us by way of a form provided on the website. When using the form, the title, first and second name, as well as a valid email address have to be indicated to let us know who sends us the request and to be able to answer it; more information may be provided voluntarily. If you do not wish to provide the personal data we request, we might not be able to provide you with the requested information and/or services or to carry out certain tasks, respectively, for which the personal data was requested. In any other respect, your visit to the website will not be affected.

The data processing for the purpose of establishing contact with us is made pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 a) GDPR based on your consent granted on a voluntary basis.

In filling in our contact form on our website, you provide your personal data to us. Such data include, but are not limited to name, position, company, contact details (e.g. business email address, telephone number and business address) as well as your specific request. Moreover, the host name of the accessing computer (IP address) and the time of the server request are stored. We use such personal data to process your request and/or to provide the requested services or deliver the requested information, respectively, and to keep evidence of your establishment of contact.

The personal data we collect to use the contact form will be erased automatically once your request has been finished.

2.4 When using our email address for applications (bewerbung@snp-online.de)

We process the applicant data only for the purpose of the application procedure in conformity with the legal regulations. The processing of the applicant data is made in compliance with our (pre) contractual obligations in the context of the application procedure as defined in Art. 6 (1) b) GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR, if data processing becomes necessary e.g. as part of legal proceedings (sec. 26 BDSG (German Federal Data Protection Act) is applicable additionally).

The application procedure requires that the applicants transfer the applicant data to us. Where we use an online form, the required applicant data are marked or result otherwise from the job descriptions and basically include the personal data of the individual, mail and contact addresses and the documents relating to the application such as cover letter, curriculum vitae and the references/testimonials. In addition, applicants may provide additional information to us on a voluntary basis.

In transferring the application to us, the applicants declare their agreement to the processing of their data for purposes of the application procedure in accordance with the type and scope set out in this Data Protection Policy.

If in the context of the application procedure special categories of personal data as defined in Art. 9 (1) GDPR are communicated on a voluntary basis, their processing will be made additionally in accordance with Art. 9 (2) b) GDPR (e.g. health data such as severely disabled status or ethnic origin). If in the context of the application procedure special categories of personal data as defined in Art. 9 (1) GDPR are requested from applicants, their processing will be made additionally in accordance with Art. 9 (2) a) GDPR (e.g. health data, if required for exercising the occupation).

If provided, applicants may transfer their applications to us by way of an online form on our website. The data will be transferred to us in an encrypted condition in accordance with the state of the art. For the application using the online form, there is a separate data protection policy, which can be retrieved in the online form.

Moreover, applicants may send us their applications via email. In this connection, however, the applicants should note that emails are not encrypted when sent in principle and the applicants themselves have to ensure the encryption. Therefore, we cannot assume any responsibility for the transfer route of the application from the sender to the receipt on our server and we recommend rather using the online form or mail. As an alternative to the application via the online form and email, the option of sending us the application by mail is still available to the applicants.

In the event of successful application, we may continue processing the data provided by the applicants for the purposes of the employment. If on the other hand the application for a job is not successful, the data of the applicants are erased. The data of the applicants are also erased if an application is withdrawn, which the applicants have the right to do at any time.

Unless in case of a justified revocation by the applicants, erasure is made after the lapse of a period of six months to enable us to answer possible follow-up questions regarding the application or to comply with our duty to furnish evidence under the German Equal Treatment Act (Gleichbehandlungsgesetz). Invoices on the reimbursement of travelling expenses, if any, shall be archived in accordance with tax law requirements.
