This privacy policy applies to all visitors to our website, our customers, prospects and job applicants.

3. Which data do we use?

You can visit our websites without telling us your identity, unless you send us an email or message via a contact form, or apply to join us or use our online services. In doing so, we process only the data necessary to answer your request or to provide our services. Which data are collected, can be seen from the respective input forms. The required data are marked as mandatory fields. As far as we ask you for more information, it is voluntary information. We use this information to make our offers more individual or better suited to your needs. In all other cases, we only use the data required to contact you.

4. For what purposes and on what legal basis do we use your data?

We process your personal data in accordance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). Please also note our information about your right of objection under Article 21 DS-GVO.

a) For the fulfillment of contractual obligations (Art. 6 (1b) of the GDPR)

The processing of personal data takes place for the fulfillment of a contract, as well as for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, which take place at your request.

b) In the context of balancing of interests (Article 6 (1f DS-GVO)

If necessary, we process your data in addition to the actual fulfillment of the contract for the protection of our legitimate interests or the interests of third parties.

c) On the basis of your consent (Article 6 (1a) DS-GVO)

Insofar you have given us consent to the processing of personal data for specific purposes, the legality of this processing is based on your consent. A given consent can be revoked at any time. Please note that the revocation only works for the future. Processings that occurred before the revocation are not affected.

d) Due to legal requirements (Article 6 (1c) DS-GVO) or in the public interest (Article 6 Para.1e DSGVO)

In addition we as a company are subject to various legal obligations (e. g. commercial code, tax laws).

Privacy policy for applications

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data in an application process is primarily § 26 BDSG in the version valid from 05-25-2018. Thereafter the processing of the data required in connection with the decision to establish an employment relationship is permitted. If the data may be required for legal prosecution after completing the application process, data processing based on the requirements of Art. 6 DS-GVO in particular for the exercise of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DS-GMO is allowed. Our interest then is in the assertion or defense against claims.

By sending your application you declare your consent that we may store and process your data for the purposes of application, staffing and recruitment. You can revoke this consent at any time and withdraw your application.
The personal data of your application will be processed by us exclusively for the purposes of application processing and in the staffing process. The staffing is made in cooperation with the responsible employees of our personnel department with the managers of the specialist departments and the management.

Your data will be deleted six months after completing the application process, unless you agree to a longer retention period, e. g. to take you into account when making future job advertisements. In case of hiring your data will be taken over to our staff data base.


5. Who gets my data?

Within BOGEN Magnetics GmbH those positions gain access to your data, which need them to fulfill our contractual and legal obligations or in the context of balance of interests. It may be necessary to respond to inquiries by submitting them to third parties, such as our subsidiaries or special service partners. Our service providers and vicarious agents may also receive data for these purposes if they protect confidentiality and our instructions under data protection law. A passing on to third parties takes place exclusively within the regulations of the DS-GVO and the BDSG.

Transfer for order processing

The personal data collected by us will be passed on to the shipping company responsible for the delivery within the framework of the contract, insofar as this is necessary for the delivery of the goods.

6. Are data transmitted to a third country?

Data are not transferred to countries outside the EU or the EEA (so-called third countries) unless they are required in connection with orders, order processing and deliveries of goods and services to a recipient in a third country.

7. How long will my data be stored?

We process and store your personal data as long as it is necessary for the fulfillment of our contractual and legal obligations or in the context of balance of interests. If the data are no longer required for the fulfillment of these purposes, these are regularly deleted, unless their - temporary - further processing is required to fulfill commercial and tax retention periods, such as the Commercial Code and the Tax Code. The deadlines for storage and documentation specified there are six to ten years.

8. Which privacy rights do I have?

In addition, there is a right of appeal to a data protection supervisory authority (Article 77 DS-GVO i.V.m. § 19 BDSG).

9. Is there a duty to provide data?

As part of our business relationship or the ordering of services, you must provide the personal information necessary to conduct the business relationship or to provide a service and to perform the related contractual obligations or that we are required to collect by law. Without this data we usually have to reject the conclusion of the contract or the execution of the order or can no longer carry out an existing contract and must therefore terminate it if necessary.

10. Is there automated decision-making including profiling?

In principle we do not use fully automated decision-making including profiling according to Article 22 of the GDPR.

11. Information about your right of objection under Article 21 of the GDPR

a) Case-specific right of objection

You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data for reasons that arise from your particular situation. The prerequisite for this is that the data processing takes place in the public interest or on the basis of a balance of interests. This also applies to a profiling. In the case of objection we will not process your personal information unless we can give compelling legitimate reasons for the processing of your data that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms. Or your personal data serve the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.

b) Objection to the processing of your data for direct mail

If your personal data is processed for our direct mail, you have the right to object to it at any time; this also applies to profiling when it comes to direct mail.
