Section 3 Data categories, purposes of processing and legal basis

When you use REMECH web pages, applications or online tools (in each case a “REMECH online offering”), REMECH processes the following personal data:

personal data that you yourself enter voluntarily in the context of a REMECH online offering (such as when registering, requesting contact or taking part in surveys, etc.), such as your first and last names, e-mail address, telephone number, information given in requesting support, comments or forum posts and information that is sent to us automatically by your web browser or terminal device, such as your IP address, device type, browser type, the website you visited previously, subsites you have visited or the date and time of each visitor request. We process your personal data for the following purposes:

  • to enable you to use the services and functions of the REMECH online offerings,
  • to establish your identity and enable user authentication,
  • to process your request, and
  • to enforce our terms and conditions of use, assert or defend against legal claims, and defend against and prevent fraud and similar activities, including attacks on our IT infrastructure.

It is necessary to process personal data in order to achieve the purposes stated. Unless specifically stated otherwise when personal data are captured, the legal basis for data processing is that it is necessary for:

  • the performance of a contract with you (Article 6 (1) (b) of the General Data Protection Regulation),
  • compliance with legal obligations to which REMECH is subject (Article 6 (1) (c) of the General Data Protection Regulation), or
  • the purposes of the legitimate interests of REMECH (Article 6 (1) (f) of the General Data Protection Regulation).

It is in the legitimate interests of REMECH to process your personal data for the purposes of offering and operating the REMECH online offerings. In some cases, we specifically ask for your consent to process personal data. In this case, the legal basis for the processing of personal data is the consent you have given (Article 6 (1) (a) of the General Data Protection Regulation).

Section 4 Cooperation with processors and third parties

If, in the course of our processing, we disclose or transmit data to other persons and com-panies (processors or third parties) or otherwise grant them access to the data, we only do so where there is a lawful basis (e.g. if it is necessary to transmit data to third parties, such as payment service providers, in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR regard-ing the performance of a contract), you have given your consent, a legal obligation re-quires this or on the basis of our legitimate interests (e.g. when engaging representatives, web hosters, etc.).

If we engage third parties to process data on the basis of a data processing contract, we do so on the basis of Art. 28 of the GDPR.

Section 5 Ability to withdraw declarations of consent

If you have given us your consent to process your personal data, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time with future effect. The withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. Once consent has been withdrawn, REMECH may only continue to process the personal data to the extent that there is another legal basis enabling REMECH to do so.

Under applicable data protection law, you have the right, if necessary, to:

  • request confirmation as to whether REMECH is processing personal data concerning yourself as well as access to the personnel data processed by REMECH and further information,
  • request that inaccurate personal data be rectified,
  • request that personal data processed by REMECH be erased,
  • request that the processing of personnel data by REMECH be restricted,
  • request that data be transferred or
  • object to the processing of personnel data by REMECH.

Section 6 Cookies and right to object to processing for direct marketing purposes

Cookies are small files that are stored on users’ computers. Cookies can store various items of information. A cookie is used primarily to store the information on a user (or the device on which the cookie is stored) during or also after the user’s visit within an online offering. Session, or transient, cookies are temporary cookies that are deleted once a user leaves an online offering and closes their browser. This type of cookie can be used to store the contents of a shopping cart in an online shop, for example, or a login status. Permanent, or persistent, cookies are those that continue to be stored after the browser has been closed. This enables the login status to be stored, for example, if users access it several days later. This type of cookie can also store users’ interests, which are used to measure reach or for marketing purposes. Third-party cookies are cookies offered by providers other than the controller that operates the online offering (conversely, if they are just the controller’s cookies, they are called first-party cookies).

We may use transient and permanent cookies and clarify this in our data privacy notice.

If users do not wish cookies to be stored on their computer, they are asked to deactivate the appropriate option in their browser’s system settings. Stored cookies can be deleted in the browser’s system settings. Switching off cookies may restrict the functionality of this online offering.

In the case of many services, and particularly in the case of tracking, it is possible to state a general objection to the use of cookies used for online marketing purposes by going to the US site or the EU site Cookie storage can also be switched off in the browser’s settings. Please note that it may not then be possible to use all the functions of this online offering.

Section 7 Use of Matomo

On this website, data are collected and stored using the web analytics software Matomo (, a service provided by InnoCraft Ltd., 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand (“Matomo”), based on our legitimate interest in statistically analyzing user behavior for optimi-zation and marketing purposes in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR. Pseudonymized user profiles may be created from those data and evaluated for the same purpose. Cookies may be used for this. The data captured using the Matomo technology (including your pseudonymized IP address) are processed on our servers. The information generated by the cookie in the pseudonymized user profile is neither used to personally identify the visitor to this website nor aggregated with personal data concerning the pseudonym’s bearer.

If you do not agree to these data from your visit being stored and evaluated, you can object to their storage and use at any time by clicking below. In this case, an opt-out cookie will be placed in your browser, as a result of which Matomo will not capture any session data. Please note that if you delete your cookies completely, the opt-out cookie will also be deleted and you may have to reactivate it.

Section 8 Retention periods

Unless a specific retention period is stated when capturing data (e.g. in the context of a declaration of consent), your personal data will be erased, provided that they are no longer required in order to fulfill the purpose of storage, except where statutory obligations to retain data (e.g. retention obligations under commercial and tax law) prevent their deletion.

Section 9 Data privacy information in the application process

We process applicant data only for the purpose and in the context of the application process in accordance with statutory requirements. Applicant data are processed in order to fulfill our (pre-)contractual obligations in the context of the application process as specified in Art. 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR/Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR if it becomes necessary for us to process data in the context of legal proceedings, for example (in Germany, Section 26 of the Federal Data Protection Act also applies).

The application process requires applicants to disclose applicant data to us. If we offer an online form, the necessary applicant data are marked; otherwise, they result from the job descriptions and generally include the information about the person, postal and contact addresses, and the documents related to the application, such as cover letter, CV and references. Applicants may also disclose additional information to us voluntarily.

By sending the application to us, applicants agree to their data being processed for the purposes of the application process in the manner and to the extent outlined in this data privacy notice.

If special categories of personal data as specified in Art. 9 (1) of the GDPR are voluntarily disclosed in the course of the application process, they are also processed in accordance with Art. 9 (2) (b) of the GDPR (e.g. health data such as a severe disability, for example, or ethnic origin). If special categories of personal data as specified in Art. 9 (1) of the GDPR are requested from applicants in the course of the application process, they are also processed in accordance with Art. 9 (2) (a) of the GDPR (e.g. health data if these are required in order to do the job in question).

Applicants can send us their applications using an online form on our website. The data are transferred to us using state-of-the-art encryption. Applicants can also send us their applications by e-mail. Please note, however, that e-mails are not generally sent encrypted and applicants have to encrypt them themselves. We cannot therefore assume responsibility for the method by which the application is transferred between the sender and receipt on our server and so recommend that an online form or postal service be used, as applicants do also have the option of sending us the application by post rather than applying via the online form and by e-mail.

If an application is successful, the data provided by applicants may continue to be processed by us for the purposes of the employment relation-ship. Conversely, if the application for an advertised position is unsuccessful, the applicants’ data are erased. Applicant data are also erased if an application is withdrawn, which applicants are entitled to do at any time.

Unless the applicant exercises their right of withdrawal, data are erased after a period of six months so that we are able to answer any follow-up questions regarding the application and fulfill our obligations to provide evidence under the German Equal Treatment Act. Invoices for reimbursement of any travel expenses are archived in accordance with tax law.

Section 10 Hosting and e-mail transmission

The hosting services we use are intended to provide the following services: infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage capacity and database services, e-mail transmission, security services and technical maintenance services that we use for the purposes of operating this online offering.

In this context, we, or our hosting provider, process personal data, contact data, content data, contract data, usage data, meta and communication data of customers, interested parties and visitors to this online offering based on our legitimate interest in providing this online offering efficiently and securely in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR in conjunction with Art. 28 of the GDPR (entering into a data processing contract).

Section 11 Integration of third-party services and content

Based on our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in analyzing, optimizing and economically operating our online offering in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR, we use content or service offerings of third-party providers within our online offering in order to integrate their content and services such as videos and fonts, for example (consistently referred to below as “content”).

This always requires the third-party providers of this content to be aware of users’ IP address as, without the IP address, they would not be able to send the content to the users’ browser. The IP address is therefore neces-sary in order to display this content. We try to only use content whose provider only uses the IP address to deliver the content. Third-party providers may also use pixel tags (invisible graphics, also called web beacons) for statistical or marketing purposes. Pixel tags allow information such as visitor traffic to the pages of this website to be evaluated. The pseudonymized information may also be stored in cookies on a user’s device, include technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, time spent on the website and other details regarding the use of our online offering, and be combined with such infor-mation from other sources.
