Data Protection

Privacy policy

Data protection is of particular concern to Salvia Group GmbH. Our efforts to meet the requirements of the European Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO) and the new version of the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz) are primarily aimed at respecting your privacy and personal sphere.

For modern companies such as Salvia Group GmbH, the use of electronic data processing systems (EDP) is nowadays indispensable. We make every effort to comply with the statutory regulations in this respect.

The use of the Salvia Group GmbH website is possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special services of our enterprise via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

We will never sell or rent your personal information to third parties for their marketing or other purposes. If you do not agree with the provisions of the data protection regulations, please do not send any personal data to us.

1. General / Definitions

This privacy policy is based on terms of the GDPR and should be easy to read and understand for every person. Therefore, we would like to explain various terms in advance:

a) Personal Data

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter "data subject"). An identifiable natural person can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier, or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

b) Data Subject / Person Concerned

Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.

(c) Processing

Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

d) Restriction of processing

Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data to limit their future processing.

e) Profiling

Profiling shall mean any automated processing of personal data which consists in using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular, to analyse or predict aspects relating to that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or change of location.

f) Pseudonymisation

Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

g) Controller

The controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its designation may be provided for under Union or Member State law.

(h) Processor(s) / Data processor(s)

A processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

i) Recipient

Recipient means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not a third party. However, public authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigative task under Union or Member State law shall not be considered as recipients.

(j) Third party

Third-party means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor, and the persons authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.

k) Consent

Consent is any freely given specific and informed indication of his or her wishes, in the form of a statement or other unambiguous affirmative act, by which the data subject signifies his or her agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

6. Data protection for applications

The data controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application procedure. The processing may also take place by electronic means. This is the case in particular if an applicant sends relevant application documents to the controller by electronic means, for example by e-mail or via a contact 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 contract in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents are automatically deleted, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller prevent such deletion. Another legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

The processing of the applicant data is carried out to fulfil our (pre)contractual obligations in the context of the application procedure within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. b. DSGVO Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO insofar as the data processing becomes necessary for us, e.g. within the scope of legal procedures (in Germany, § 26 BDSG also applies).

When exercising such an objection, we ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your data as we have done. In the event of your justified objection, we will review the situation and either discontinue or adapt the data processing or show you our compelling legitimate grounds based on which we will continue the processing.

(3) Of course, you can object to the processing of your data for advertising and data analysis purposes at any time. You can contact us about your objection to advertising at the address given under point 2 (2).

(8) Legal or contractual requirements for the provision of personal data/necessity for the conclusion of a contract/consequences of non-provision/deletion

(1) We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is sometimes required by law. However, it may also be possible that a data subject must provide us with personal data for a contract to be performed. Failure to provide such data would mean that the contract could not be concluded. Our staff will be happy to answer any questions you may have on a case-by-case basis. 

(2) The data processed by us will be deleted or its processing restricted in accordance with Articles 17 and 18 DSGVO. Unless expressly stated in this data protection declaration, the data stored by us will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required for its intended purpose and the deletion does not conflict with any statutory retention obligations. If the data is not deleted because it is required for other and legally permissible purposes, its processing will be restricted. I.e. the data is blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be retained for reasons of commercial or tax law.

10. Social media/integration of Google Maps

1. use of social media plug-ins

(1) We currently use the following social media plug-ins:

       Facebook, Xing, LinkedIn.

       We use the so-called two-click solution. This means that when you visit our site, no personal data is initially passed on to the providers of the plug-ins. You can identify the provider of the plug-in by marking the box with its initial letter or logo. We give you the opportunity to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via the button. Only if you click on the marked box and thereby activate it, the plug-in provider receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online offer. In addition, the data mentioned under point 4 of this declaration is transmitted. In the case of Facebook and Xing, according to the respective providers in Germany, the IP address is anonymised immediately after collection. By activating the plug-in, your data is transmitted to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (in the case of US providers, in the USA). Since the plug-in provider collects the data in particular via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies via your browser's security settings before clicking on the greyed-out box.

(2) We have no influence on the data collected and data processing operations, nor are we aware of the full extent of the data collection, the purposes of the processing, the storage periods. We also have no information on the deletion of the collected data by the plug-in provider.

(3) The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as usage profiles and uses these for advertising, market research, and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) for the display of needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right. Via the plug-ins, we offer you the opportunity to interact with the social networks and other users so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.

(4) The data transfer takes place regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in to the plug-in provider, your data collected from us will be directly assigned to your account with the plug-in provider. If you click the activated button and, for example, link to the page, the plug-in provider also saves this information in your user account and shares it publicly with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, but especially before activating the button, as this will help you to avoid an assignment to your profile with the plug-in provider.

(5) Further information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider can be found in the data protection declarations of these providers provided below. There you will also receive further information on your rights in this regard and set options for protecting your privacy.

(2) By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding sub-page of our website. In addition, the data mentioned under point 4 of this declaration will be transmitted. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account via 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 your data to be associated with your Google profile, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for advertising, market research, and/or the needs-based 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 your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact Google to exercise this right.
