Purpose of the data collection, processing or use

We are specialists in the field of multi-brand diagnostics, windshield calibration systems and air conditioning service equipment and offer our customers suitable diagnostic solutions for motor vehicles, trailers, vans or buses. Together with our customers we create an individual package of hardware, software, hotline and training. The collection, processing or use of personal data is carried out to fulfil this company purpose or supporting secondary purposes, such as customer advice or the further development of technical diagnostic solutions for our customers.

The company thus collects, processes and uses personal data exclusively for your individual support, for the preparation and fulfilment of contracts, out of legitimate interest, for compliance with legal obligations, the sending of product information or the submission of service offers as well as for order processing or with the consent of the person concerned.

Groups of persons concerned and related data or categories of data

The groups of persons concerned are

  • current employees,
  • former employees,
  • applicants,
  • interested parties,
  • customers,
  • suppliers,
  • service providers and
  • other business partners.

The relevant data includes all personal data that is required to fulfil the respective purpose. WABCOWÜRTH Workshop Services GmbH does not direct the website and also the mobile applications towards children as a target group.

Data protection in job applications

In accordance with the provisions of Articles 13 and 14 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we hereby inform you about the processing of personal data provided by you as part of the application process and, if applicable, collected by us, and your rights in this regard. In order to ensure that you are fully informed about the processing of your personal data as part of the application process, please take note of the following information.

Purposes and legal bases of the processing

We process your personal data in accordance with the provisions of the European Data Protection Regulation and the Federal Data Protection Act, insofar as this is necessary for the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship with us.

The legal basis for this is Art. 88 GDPR in conjunction with § 26 BDSG and, if applicable, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR for the initiation or implementation of contractual relationships.

Furthermore, we may process your personal data if this is necessary for the fulfilment of legal obligations (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR) or for the defence of asserted legal claims against us. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest is, for example, a duty of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG). If you give us express consent to process personal data for specific purposes, the lawfulness of this processing is based on your consent according to Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR. A given consent can be revoked at any time, with effect for the future.

If an employment relationship arises between you and us, we may, in accordance with Art. 88 GDPR in conjunction with § 26 BDSG-neu, further process the personal data already received from you for the purposes of the employment relationship, insofar as this is necessary for the implementation or termination of the employment relationship or for the exercise or fulfilment of the rights and obligations of the employee representation resulting from a law or a collective agreement, a company or service agreement (collective agreement).

Categories of personal data

We only process data that is related to your application. This may be general personal data (name, address, contact details, etc.), information on your professional qualifications and school education, information on further professional training and, if applicable, other data that you provide to us in connection with your application.

Sources of the data

We process personal data that we receive from you by post or email in the course of contacting you or your application, or that you send to us via online job portals.

Recipients of the data

We only pass on your personal data within our company to those persons who require this data to fulfil contractual and legal obligations or to implement our legitimate interests. Data will only be passed on to recipients outside the company if this is permitted or required by law, if the transfer is necessary to fulfil legal obligations or if we have your consent.

Duration of data storage

We store your personal data as long as this is necessary for the decision on your application. Your application documents with the personal data will be deleted a maximum of six months after the end of the application process (e.g. the announcement of the rejection decision), unless a longer storage is legally required or permitted. We store your personal data beyond this only insofar as this is required by law or in the specific case for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims for the duration of a legal dispute.

If, following the application procedure, an employment relationship, apprenticeship or trainee relationship is established, your data will, insofar as necessary and permissible, initially continue to be stored and then transferred to the personnel file.

If applicable, you will receive an invitation to join our talent pool following the application process. This allows us to consider you in the future for suitable vacancies in our selection of applicants. If we have your consent to do so, we will store your application data in our talent pool in accordance with your consent or any future consent.

Handling of personal data

WABCOWÜRTH Workshop Services GmbH only collects, uses and discloses your personal data if this is permitted by law or to entities within the Würth Group, service providers and other business partners to the extent necessary to fulfill the respective purpose and to the extent permitted or required by law or with the consent of the party concerned. Any further transfer of personal data is not intended and therefore does not take place.

Contact form

If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details you have provided, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up enquiries.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form is based on our legitimate interest in having contact with you, our customers, and to improve the quality of our advice. (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). If the contact is aimed at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR.

The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after processing your request has been completed). An exception to this may be legal storage obligations.

Processing of data (customer and contract data)

We collect, process and use personal data only to the extent that they are necessary for the establishment, content or amendment of the contract (inventory data). This is done on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the performance of a contract or pre-contractual measures. We collect, process and use personal data about the use of our Internet pages (usage data) only to the extent necessary to enable the user to use the service or to bill the user.

The collected customer data will be deleted after termination of the business relationship. Statutory retention periods remain unaffected.

Handling of contact data

If you contact WABCOWÜRTH Workshop Services GmbH using the contact options provided, your details will be stored so that they can be used to process and respond to your enquiries.

We use your personal data exclusively for the purposes for which we have collected them.

This includes the sending of newsletters, product and customer information, novelties, invitations, trade fair announcements, surveys, service offers as well as other services and information related to the offers of WABCOWÜRTH Workshop Services GmbH.

If you no longer wish to receive newsletters, product information or promotional messages in general, you can object to this at any time. In this case, no further charges will be incurred apart from the usual transmission costs according to the corresponding tariffs of the telemedia company you have commissioned. A notification in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) is sufficient for this purpose.

For the purpose of processing your order, we will send the address and contact details you provided when placing your order to external transport companies for transport purposes only.

Standard period for the deletion of data

The deletion of personal data is carried out according to the respective applicable legal or contractual regulations for data deletion, taking into account legal or contractual retention obligations. Such legal obligations result, among others, from the German Commercial Code (HGB) and the German Fiscal Code (AO). The periods specified there for storage or documentation are up to ten years beyond the end of the business relationship or the pre-contractual legal relationship. The deletion of personal data, which is not subject to any legal or contractual obligation to retain or delete, takes place immediately after it has become dispensable for the fulfilment of the respective purpose.

Planned data transfers

Passing on to other Würth companies

We may share your personal information with other Würth companies for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy.

Disclosure to third parties

Your personal data may also be transferred to the following institutions: Credit reference agencies and anti-fraud agencies, service providers and other business partners, insofar as it is necessary for the fulfilment of the respective purpose and a legal provision permits or requires this or the data subject has consented. Collection agencies (in the case of outstanding debts with us); or other third parties such as our sales partners with appropriate information and consent. If you agree to provide your personal information to other companies, the handling and use of that information will be governed by the privacy policies of those companies, which may differ from the policies and practices of WABCOWÜRTH Workshop Services GmbH.

Planned data transfer to third countries

Should it become necessary to transfer data to third countries, this will only be done for the conclusion or fulfilment of contracts insofar as this does not conflict with the interests of the data subject which are worthy of protection. Should a data transfer nevertheless take place, we refer to the fact that suitable guarantees or binding internal data protection regulations are available, or that a strict standard is always applied in favour of the data subject when weighing up the interests of the data subject and the contracting parties.

Legal basis

A processing of personal data is only lawful if this is permitted by law, i.e. a legal basis exists. In the GDPR as well as in the BDSG, however, even more possibilities are defined.

A processing of personal data takes place in our company only in accordance with the legal provisions. These are, among others, if there is consent to the processing of personal data (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR), or if personal data must be processed for the fulfilment of a contract or the initiation of a contract (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR), or if we are subject to the responsibility to process personal data for the fulfilment of a legal obligation Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR), or if we process personal data on the basis of a legitimate interest or on the basis of a legitimate interest of a third party (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR).

When weighing the interests of the data subject and the contracting parties, a strict standard is always applied in favour of the data subject.

Your rights regarding data protection

The data subject has various rights with regard to data protection. These rights are explained below. The above contact details can be used to exercise these rights.

Every data subject has the right to obtain from the controller access to the personal data concerned, as well as the right to obtain rectification, erasure, restriction of processing or the right to object to processing, as well as the right to data portability.

Right of withdrawal

Every data subject has the right to withdraw his or her consent at any time without affecting the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent up to the time of withdrawal.

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke an already given consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Social networks

We operate profiles on social networks to present our company and to communicate with customers and interested parties. In the following, we will inform you about the associated processing activities.

Data processing for presentation and communication

Social networks enable us to present our company to persons who have an account with the social network (hereinafter "users") and to all visitors to our profiles without an account with the social network (hereinafter "guests"). Furthermore, customers and interested parties can contact us via this profile. Our profiles and posts are generally viewable by Users and Guests (hereinafter Users and Guests are collectively referred to as "Visitors"). If you comment on our posts or send us a message, this data is stored by the social network and is viewable by us. We may respond to your comment or message. For posts, your comment and our response may still be viewable by all users of the social network or by all visitors.

Data processing for statistical and promotional purposes

If you call up our profile, the social network can store and evaluate your call-up as well as all further interactions of you on the website of the social network. This data is made available to the profile owners as statistics and processed by the social networks for advertising purposes, among other things.

If you have an account with the social network and are logged in when you visit our profile, the provider of the social network can link your interactions with our profile with your account data and process it further. However, it is also possible that data about your interactions with our profile will be stored by the social network for the duration of your visit and processed for further purposes if you are not logged in there or do not have an account. In this case, an allocation can take place, for example, through the use of cookies, small files which are stored on your end device, or in connection with your IP address.

The data processing usually follows the purpose of creating an interest profile of the visitor and using these profiles for advertising purposes. If a person calls up certain websites, information about this call is evaluated and the provider assigns interests to the visitor. Based on the assigned interests, advertisements are displayed to the visitor. Interest-based advertisements can be displayed by the provider both within and outside the web pages of the social network.

Categories of persons concerned

People who access our profile on the relevant social network (both users with an account with the social network provider and visitors without an account).

Assertion of your rights as a data subject

For information requests or to exercise your other rights as a data subject, we recommend that you contact the provider directly, as only the provider has full access to the data processed in connection with a call to our profile or interaction with us on the social network. The contact information of the social networks on the exercise of your rights as a data subject can be found in the section "Information on the social networks used by us". In the case of data processing where there is joint responsibility between the social network provider and us, you also have the right to exercise your rights as a data subject against us. In such a case, we will forward your request to the social network insofar as the request concerns data or processing activities that are processed by the social network.

Further information on the processing activities of the social networks and the existing objection options can be found under the respective providers.

YouTube

Integration of YouTube videosWe

have integrated YouTube videos into our online offer, which are stored on www.youtube.com and can be played directly from our website. These are all integrated in "extended data protection mode", i.e. no data about you as a user is transmitted to YouTube if you do not play the videos. Only when you play the videos, data is transmitted. We have no influence on this data transmission. This occurs regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account.

If you do not wish to have your data associated with your YouTube profile, you must log out of YouTube before playing the video. YouTube stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of its website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.

YouTube is used in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.

For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by YouTube, please see the privacy policy.

Google also processes your personal data in the USA. YouTube is operated by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Data analysis through CleverReach

For the purpose of analysis, the emails sent with CleverReach contain a so-called "tracking pixel", which connects to CleverReach's servers when the email is opened. In this way, it can be determined whether a newsletter message has been opened. Furthermore, with the help of CleverReach, we can determine whether and which links in the newsletter message are clicked. All links in the email are so-called tracking links, with which your clicks can be counted.

Legal basis

The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

Storage period

The data you provide us with for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of cleverReach after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data that has been stored by us for other purposes (e.g. update service) remains unaffected by this.

Conclusion of a contract on commissioned data processing

We have concluded a contract with CleverReach GmbH & Co KG in which we oblige CleverReach to protect our customers' data and not to pass it on to third parties.
