Data protec­tion

The opera­tors of this website and its pages take the protec­tion of your perso­nal data very serious­ly. Hence, we hand­le your perso­nal data as confi­den­ti­al infor­ma­ti­on and in compli­an­ce with the statu­to­ry data protec­tion regu­la­ti­ons and this Data Protec­tion Declaration.

Whenever you use this website, a varie­ty of perso­nal infor­ma­ti­on will be collec­ted. Perso­nal data compri­ses data that can be used to perso­nal­ly iden­ti­fy you. This Data Protec­tion Decla­ra­ti­on explains which data we collect as well as the purpo­ses we use this data for. It also explains how, and for which purpo­se the infor­ma­ti­on is collected.

We here­with advi­se you that the trans­mis­si­on of data via the Inter­net (i.e., through e‑mail commu­ni­ca­ti­ons) may be prone to secu­ri­ty gaps. It is not possi­ble to comple­te­ly protect data against third-party access.

The data proces­sing control­ler on this website is:

APL Auto­mo­bil-Prüf­tech­nik Land­au GmbH

Am Hölzel 11
76829 Land­au
Germa­ny
Phone: +49 (0)6341–991‑0
E‑mail: info@apl-landau.de

The control­ler is the natu­ral person or legal enti­ty that single-handed­ly or joint­ly with others makes decisi­ons as to the purpo­ses of and resour­ces for the proces­sing of perso­nal data (e.g., names, e‑mail addres­ses, etc.).

Storage dura­ti­on

Unless a more speci­fic storage peri­od has been speci­fied in this priva­cy poli­cy, your perso­nal data will remain with us until the purpo­se for which it was collec­ted no longer applies. If you assert a justi­fied request for dele­ti­on or revo­ke your consent to data proces­sing, your data will be dele­ted, unless we have other legal­ly permis­si­ble reasons for storing your perso­nal data (e.g., tax or commer­cial law reten­ti­on peri­ods); in the latter case, the dele­ti­on will take place after these reasons cease to apply.

Gene­ral infor­ma­ti­on on the legal basis for the data proces­sing on this website

If you have consen­ted to data proces­sing, we process your perso­nal data on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR or Art. 9 (2)(a) GDPR, if special cate­go­ries of data are proces­sed accord­ing to Art. 9 (1) DSGVO. If you have consen­ted to the storage of cookies or to the access to infor­ma­ti­on in your end device (e.g., via device finger­prin­ting), the data proces­sing is addi­tio­nal­ly based on § 25 (1) TTDSG.

Infor­ma­ti­on on data trans­fer to the USA and other non-EU countries

Among other things, we use tools of compa­nies domic­i­led in the United States or other from a data protec­tion perspec­ti­ve non-secu­re non-EU coun­tries. If these tools are acti­ve, your perso­nal data may poten­ti­al­ly be trans­fer­red to these non-EU coun­tries and may be proces­sed there. We must point out that in these coun­tries, a data protec­tion level that is compa­ra­ble to that in the EU cannot be guaran­te­ed. For instance, U.S. enter­pri­ses are under a manda­te to release perso­nal data to the secu­ri­ty agen­ci­es and you as the data subject do not have any liti­ga­ti­on opti­ons to defend yourself in court. Hence, it cannot be ruled out that U.S. agen­ci­es (e.g., the Secret Service) may process, analy­ze, and perma­nent­ly archi­ve your perso­nal data for surveil­lan­ce purpo­ses. We have no control over these proces­sing activities.

Revo­ca­ti­on of your consent to the proces­sing of data

A wide range of data proces­sing tran­sac­tions are possi­ble only subject to your express consent. You can also revo­ke at any time any consent you have alrea­dy given us. This shall be without preju­di­ce to the lawful­ness of any data collec­tion that occur­red prior to your revocation.

Right to object to the collec­tion of data in special cases; right to object to direct adver­ti­sing (Art. 21 GDPR)

IN THE EVENT THAT DATA ARE PROCESSED ON THE BASIS OF ART. 6(1)(E) OR (F) GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO AT ANY TIME OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA BASED ON GROUNDS ARISING FROM YOUR UNIQUE SITUATION. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO ANY PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS. TO DETERMINE THE LEGAL BASIS, ON WHICH ANY PROCESSING OF DATA IS BASED, PLEASE CONSULT THIS DATA PROTECTION DECLARATION. IF YOU LOG AN OBJECTION, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA, UNLESS WE ARE IN A POSITION TO PRESENT COMPELLING PROTECTION WORTHY GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING OF YOUR DATA, THAT OUTWEIGH YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS OR IF THE PURPOSE OF THE PROCESSING IS THE CLAIMING, EXERCISING OR DEFENCE OF LEGAL ENTITLEMENTS (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21(1) GDPR).
IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS BEING PROCESSED IN ORDER TO ENGAGE IN DIRECT ADVERTISING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSES OF SUCH ADVERTISING AT ANY TIME. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING TO THE EXTENT THAT IT IS AFFILIATED WITH SUCH DIRECT ADVERTISING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR DIRECT ADVERTISING PURPOSES
(OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21(2) GD

Right to log a comp­laint with the compe­tent super­vi­so­ry agency

In the event of viola­ti­ons of the GDPR, data subjects are enti­t­led to log a comp­laint with a super­vi­so­ry agen­cy, in parti­cu­lar in the member state where they usual­ly main­tain their domic­i­le, place of work or at the place where the alle­ged viola­ti­on occur­red. The right to log a comp­laint is in effect regard­less of any other admi­nis­tra­ti­ve or court procee­dings avail­ab­le as legal recourses.

Right to data portability

You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we auto­ma­ti­cal­ly process on the basis of your consent or in order to fulfil a contract be handed over to you or a third party in a common­ly used, machi­ne read­a­ble format. If you should demand the direct trans­fer of the data to anot­her control­ler, this will be done only if it is tech­ni­cal­ly feasible.

SSL and/or TLS encryption

For secu­ri­ty reasons and to protect the trans­mis­si­on of confi­den­ti­al content, such as purcha­se orders or inqui­ries you submit to us as the website opera­tor, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryp­ti­on program. You can reco­gni­ze an encryp­ted connec­tion by checking whether the address line of the brow­ser swit­ches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearan­ce of the lock icon in the brow­ser line.

If the SSL or TLS encryp­ti­on is acti­va­ted, data you trans­mit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Infor­ma­ti­on about, recti­fi­ca­ti­on and eradi­ca­ti­on of data

Within the scope of the appli­ca­ble statu­to­ry provi­si­ons, you have the right to at any time demand infor­ma­ti­on about your archi­ved perso­nal data, their source and reci­pi­ents as well as the purpo­se of the proces­sing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data recti­fied or eradi­ca­ted. If you have ques­ti­ons about this subject matter or any other ques­ti­ons about perso­nal data, plea­se do not hesi­ta­te to conta­ct us at any time.

Right to demand proces­sing restrictions

You have the right to demand the impo­si­ti­on of restric­tions as far as the proces­sing of your perso­nal data is concer­ned. To do so, you may conta­ct us at any time. The right to demand restric­tion of proces­sing applies in the following cases:

In the event that you should dispu­te the correct­ness of your data archi­ved by us, we will usual­ly need some time to veri­fy this claim. During the time that this inves­ti­ga­ti­on is ongo­ing, you have the right to demand that we restrict the proces­sing of your perso­nal data.
If the proces­sing of your perso­nal data was/is conduc­ted in an unlaw­ful manner, you have the opti­on to demand the restric­tion of the proces­sing of your data in lieu of deman­ding the eradi­ca­ti­on of this data.
If we do not need your perso­nal data any longer and you need it to exer­cise, defend or claim legal enti­t­le­ments, you have the right to demand the restric­tion of the proces­sing of your perso­nal data instead of its eradi­ca­ti­on.
If you have raised an objec­tion pursuant to Art. 21(1) GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be weig­hed against each other. As long as it has not been deter­mi­ned whose inte­rests prevail, you have the right to demand a restric­tion of the proces­sing of your perso­nal data.

If you have restric­ted the proces­sing of your perso­nal data, these data – with the excep­ti­on of their archi­ving – may be proces­sed only subject to your consent or to claim, exer­cise or defend legal enti­t­le­ments or to protect the rights of other natu­ral persons or legal enti­ties or for important public inte­rest reasons cited by the Euro­pean Union or a member state of the EU. 

Rejec­tion of unso­li­ci­ted e‑mails

We here­with object to the use of conta­ct infor­ma­ti­on publis­hed in conjunc­tion with the manda­to­ry infor­ma­ti­on to be provi­ded in our Site Noti­ce to send us promo­tio­nal and infor­ma­ti­on mate­ri­al that we have not express­ly reques­ted. The opera­tors of this website and its pages reser­ve the express right to take legal action in the event of the unso­li­ci­ted sending of promo­tio­nal infor­ma­ti­on, for instance via SPAM messages.

The use of Goog­le Web Fonts is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website opera­tor has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in a uniform presen­ta­ti­on of the font on the operator’s website. If appro­pria­te consent has been obtai­ned, the proces­sing is carri­ed out exclu­si­ve­ly on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR and § 25 (1) TTDSG, inso­far the consent inclu­des the storage of cookies or the access to infor­ma­ti­on in the user’s end device (e.g., device finger­prin­ting) within the meaning of the TTDSG. This consent can be revo­ked at any time.

If your brow­ser should not support Web Fonts, a stan­dard font instal­led on your compu­ter will be used.

8. Online-based Audio and Video Confe­ren­ces (Confe­rence tools)

Data proces­sing

We use online confe­rence tools, among other things, for commu­ni­ca­ti­on with our custo­mers. The tools we use are listed in detail below. If you commu­ni­ca­te with us by video or audio confe­rence using the Inter­net, your perso­nal data will be collec­ted and proces­sed by the provi­der of the respec­ti­ve confe­rence tool and by us. The confe­ren­cing tools collect all infor­ma­ti­on that you provide/access to use the tools (email address and/or your phone number). Further­mo­re, the confe­rence tools process the dura­ti­on of the confe­rence, start and end (time) of parti­ci­pa­ti­on in the confe­rence, number of parti­ci­pants and other “context infor­ma­ti­on” rela­ted to the commu­ni­ca­ti­on process (meta­da­ta).

Further­mo­re, the provi­der of the tool proces­ses all the tech­ni­cal data requi­red for the proces­sing of the online commu­ni­ca­ti­on. This inclu­des, in parti­cu­lar, IP addres­ses, MAC addres­ses, device IDs, device type, opera­ting system type and versi­on, client versi­on, came­ra type, micro­pho­ne or loud­spea­ker and the type of connection.

Should content be exch­an­ged, uploa­ded, or other­wi­se made avail­ab­le within the tool, it is also stored on the servers of the tool provi­der. Such content inclu­des, but is not limi­ted to, cloud record­ings, chat/ instant messages, voice­mail uploa­ded photos and vide­os, files, white­boards, and other infor­ma­ti­on shared while using the service.

Plea­se note that we do not have comple­te influ­ence on the data proces­sing proce­du­res of the tools used. Our possi­bi­li­ties are large­ly deter­mi­ned by the corpo­ra­te poli­cy of the respec­ti­ve provi­der. Further infor­ma­ti­on on data proces­sing by the confe­rence tools can be found in the data protec­tion decla­ra­ti­ons of the tools used, and which we have listed below this text.

Purpo­se and legal bases

The confe­rence tools are used to commu­ni­ca­te with prospec­ti­ve or exis­ting contrac­tu­al part­ners or to offer certain services to our custo­mers (Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR). Further­mo­re, the use of the tools serves to gene­ral­ly simpli­fy and acce­le­ra­te commu­ni­ca­ti­on with us or our compa­ny (legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the meaning of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR). Inso­far as consent has been reques­ted, the tools in ques­ti­on will be used on the basis of this consent; the consent may be revo­ked at any time with effect from that date.

Dura­ti­on of storage

Data collec­ted direct­ly by us via the video and confe­rence tools will be dele­ted from our systems immedia­te­ly after you request us to dele­te it, revo­ke your consent to storage, or the reason for storing the data no longer applies. Stored cookies remain on your end device until you dele­te them. Manda­to­ry legal reten­ti­on peri­ods remain unaffected.

We have no influ­ence on the dura­ti­on of storage of your data that is stored by the opera­tors of the confe­rence tools for their own purpo­ses. For details, plea­se direct­ly conta­ct the opera­tors of the confe­rence tools.

9. Custom Services 

Job Appli­ca­ti­ons

We offer website visi­tors the oppor­tu­ni­ty to submit job appli­ca­ti­ons to us (e.g. via e‑mail, via postal services on by submit­ting the online job appli­ca­ti­on form). Below, we will brief you on the scope, purpo­se and use of the perso­nal data collec­ted from you in conjunc­tion with the appli­ca­ti­on process. We assu­re you that the collec­tion, proces­sing and use of your data will occur in compli­an­ce with the appli­ca­ble data priva­cy rights and all other statu­to­ry provi­si­ons and that your data will always be trea­ted as strict­ly confidential.

Scope and purpo­se of the collec­tion of data

If you submit a job appli­ca­ti­on to us, we will process any affi­lia­ted perso­nal data (e.g. conta­ct and commu­ni­ca­ti­ons data, appli­ca­ti­on docu­ments, notes taken during job inter­views, etc.), if they are requi­red to make a decisi­on concer­ning the estab­lish­ment or an employ­ment rela­ti­ons­hip. The legal grounds for the afore­men­tio­ned are § 26 New GDPR accord­ing to German Law (Nego­tia­ti­on of an Employ­ment Rela­ti­ons­hip), Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR (Gene­ral Contract Nego­tia­ti­ons) and – provi­ded you have given us your consent – Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR. You may revo­ke any consent given at any time. Within our compa­ny, your perso­nal data will only be shared with indi­vi­du­als who are invol­ved in the proces­sing of your job application.

If your job appli­ca­ti­on should result in your recruit­ment, the data you have submit­ted will be archi­ved on the grounds of § 26 New GDPR and Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR for the purpo­se of imple­men­ting the employ­ment rela­ti­ons­hip in our data proces­sing system.

Data Archi­ving Period

If we are unab­le to make you a job offer or you reject a job offer or with­draw your appli­ca­ti­on, we reser­ve the right to retain the data you have submit­ted on the basis of our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) for up to 6 months from the end of the appli­ca­ti­on proce­du­re (rejec­tion or with­dra­wal of the appli­ca­ti­on). After­wards the data will be dele­ted, and the physi­cal appli­ca­ti­on docu­ments will be destroy­ed. The storage serves in parti­cu­lar as evidence in the event of a legal dispu­te. If it is evident that the data will be requi­red after the expi­ry of the 6‑month peri­od (e.g. due to an impen­ding or pending legal dispu­te), dele­ti­on will only take place when the purpo­se for further storage no longer applies.

Longer storage may also take place if you have given your agree­ment (Arti­cle 6 (1) (a) GDPR) or if statu­to­ry data reten­ti­on requi­re­ments preclu­de the deletion.

Admis­si­on to the appli­cant pool

If we do not make you a job offer, you may be able to join our appli­cant pool. In case of admis­si­on, all docu­ments and infor­ma­ti­on from the appli­ca­ti­on will be trans­fer­red to the appli­cant pool in order to conta­ct you in case of suita­ble vacancies.

Admis­si­on to the appli­cant pool is based exclu­si­ve­ly on your express agree­ment (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). The submis­si­on agree­ment is volun­ta­ry and has no rela­ti­on to the ongo­ing appli­ca­ti­on proce­du­re. The affec­ted person can revo­ke his agree­ment at any time. In this case, the data from the appli­cant pool will be irre­vo­ca­b­ly dele­ted, provi­ded there are no legal reasons for storage.

The data from the appli­cant pool will be irre­vo­ca­b­ly dele­ted no later than two years after consent has been granted.
