Privacy Policy

We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection is a particularly high priority for the management of Maschinenbau Scholz GmbH & Co. KG. The Maschinenbau Scholz GmbH & Co. KG website can be used without providing any personal data. However, if a person concerned wishes to make use of special services offered by our company via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally ask for the agreement of the person concerned.

The processing of personal data, e.g. the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the general data protection regulation and in compliance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to Maschinenbau Scholz GmbH & Co.

§ 1 Information on the collection of personal data

(1) Following we provide information about the collection of personal data when using our website. Personal data is all data that can be related to you personally, e.g. name, address, e-mail addresses.

(2) When you contact us by e-mail, the data you provide (your e-mail address, your name and telephone number if applicable) will be stored by us in order to answer your questions. We delete the data arising in this connection after storage is no longer necessary or restrict processing if there are legal obligations to retain data.

(3) If we use commissioned service providers for individual functions of our offer, we will inform you in detail about the respective processes below. In doing so, we will also state the specified criteria for the storage period.


§ 2 Privacy policy for business users

(1) Purposes for which the personal data is processed as well as the legal basis for the processing:

We process data in order to carry out business relations for the fulfilment of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures (Art. 6 Para. 1 letter b GDPR, e.g. in connection with the execution and administration of orders), to fulfil a legal obligation (Art. 6 Para. 1 letter c GDPR, e.g. commercial and tax law obligations to retain data in accordance with § 257 HGB and § 147 AO), to safeguard the legitimate interests of the person responsible or a third party (Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR, e.g. storage of data for a period of time appropriate to acquisition efforts or for the assertion of legal claims and defence in the event of legal disputes), and on the basis of the consent of the persons concerned (Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR, e.g. transfer of data to third parties).

(2) Sources and categories of personal data processed:

We process personal data that we receive from you or from public sources such as directories, registers and credit or economic information agencies within the scope of our business relationship, in the main personal data, contact data (e.g. telephone number, e-mail address), area of activity or position, contract data, payment data, bank and creditworthiness data and sales data.

(3) Recipients or categories of recipients of personal data:

Within the company, access to the data is granted to those bodies, which need it to fulfil their contractual and legal obligations. Contract processors employed by us in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR may also process data for these purposes, e.g. IT or telecommunications service providers, cloud providers.

Outside the company, data may be passed on to companies in the logistics sector, service providers, suppliers, subcontractors, authorities, tax consultants, credit institutions, credit agencies, debt collection agencies, lawyers.

(4) Transfer to a third country (outside EU / EEA) or to an international organisation:

The transfer of personal data to a third country in the context of project implementation is generally based on an EU adequacy decision and the signature of standard data protection clauses, taking into account technical and organisational measures to comply with the EU data protection level. If the data is transferred to a third country that does not meet the above criteria, this is done in exceptional cases on the basis of a legal obligation or consent by the data subject(s).

(5) The duration of storage of personal data and the criteria for determination of duration:

The required personal data will be stored for the duration of the existence of warranty and guarantee claims. In addition, the personal data will be stored in accordance with the periods prescribed by law. Corresponding proof and storage obligations result from the German Commercial Code (HGB) and the German Fiscal Code (AO). The periods of retention and documentation specified there are six and ten years respectively. If the data is no longer required for the fulfilment of contractual or legal obligations, it is regularly deleted.


§ 3 Privacy policy for applicants

(1) The purposes for which the personal data is processed and the legal basis for the processing:

We process the data that you have sent us in connection with your application in order to check your suitability for the position (or other open positions in our companies, if applicable) and to carry out the application procedure.

The legal basis for processing your personal data in this application procedure is primarily § 26 BDSG. This allows the processing of data required in connection with the decision to establish an employment relationship.

Furthermore, we may process personal data about you to the extent that this is necessary to defend against legal claims asserted against us in the application process. 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). Should there be any need for a longer-term storage (e.g. for further vacant positions or positions that become vacant), this will be done on the basis of your consent in writing (pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter a GDPR).

Insofar as special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 Para. 1 DS-GVO are voluntarily communicated as part of the application procedure, their processing is additionally carried out in accordance with Art. 9 Para. 2 letter b DS-GVO (e.g. health data, such as severely disabled status or ethnic origin). If special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 (1) DS-GVO are requested from applicants as part of the application procedure, their processing is also carried out in accordance with Art. 9 (2) letter a DS-GVO (e.g. health data if this is necessary for the exercise of the profession).

(2) Sources and categories of personal data processed:

We process personal data that we receive from you or recruiters in the course of the application process, such as in particular personal details (name, address and other contact details, date and place of birth, nationality), bank details (for the purpose of travel expense reimbursement), qualification documents (e.g. certificates, assessments and other evidence of training) and photographs.

(3) Recipients or categories of recipients of personal data:

Applicants who send us their applications by e-mail. Please note, however, that e-mails are generally not sent in encrypted form and that the applicants themselves must ensure that they are encrypted. We can therefore accept no responsibility for the transmission path of the application between the sender and the receipt on our server and therefore recommend that you use postal dispatch.

Your data will be sighted by the Human Resources department after receipt of your application. Suitable applications will then be forwarded internally to the responsible person for the vacant position in question, if necessary also to the works council. Within the company, access to your data is only granted to those persons who need it for the proper processing of our application procedure.

Otherwise, personal data is processed on our behalf on the basis of contracts in accordance with Art. 28 DS-GVO (order processing), this applies in particular to host providers or providers of applicant management systems. Within the framework of the application procedure, recruitment agencies may also be commissioned if necessary.

(4) Transmission to a third country (outside EU/EEA) or to an international organisation:

A submission to a third country does not take place and is not intended.

(5) The duration of storage of personal data and the criteria for determination of duration:

If no employment relationship is established following your application, we will retain applicant data for a maximum of six months so that we can answer any follow-up questions about the application and meet our obligations to provide evidence under the Equal Treatment Act. This does not apply if legal provisions prevent deletion (e.g. archiving of travel expense reimbursements in accordance with tax regulations), if further storage is necessary for the purpose of providing evidence or if you have expressly agreed to longer storage. In the event that you have given your consent to further storage of your personal data, we will transfer your data to our pool of applicants. There the data will be deleted after one year.

Should you receive the acceptance of a position within the application procedure, the data will be transferred from the applicant data system to our personnel data system.


§ 4 Data protection information for online meetings with "Cisco WebEx Telekom

In the following we inform you about the processing of personal data in connection with the execution of online meetings using the video conference tool of "Cisco WebEx Telekom".

(1) Responsible person:

The person responsible for data processing in direct connection with the holding of "online meetings" is Maschinenbau Scholz GmbH & Co.KG.

Note: If you access the "Cisco WebEx Telekom" website, the provider of "Cisco WebEx Telekom" is responsible for data processing. However, you only need to call up the Internet site to use "Cisco WebEx Telekom" in order to download the software for use.

If you do not want to or cannot use the "Cisco WebEx Telekom" application, you can also use "CISCO WebEx Telekom" via your browser. The service will then also be provided via the "Cisco WebEx Telekom" website.

(2) The purpose of the processing:

We use the "Cisco WebEx Telekom" tool to conduct telephone conferences, video conferences and webinars (hereinafter: "online meetings"). "Cisco WebEx Telekom" is a service of Cisco Systems, Inc.

(3) Legal basis for data processing:

If personal employee data is processed by Maschinenbau Scholz GmbH & Co KG, § 26 BDSG is the legal basis for data processing. If, in connection with the use of "Cisco WebEx Telekom", personal data is not required for the establishment, execution or termination of the employment relationship, but is nevertheless an elementary component in the use of "Cisco WebEx Telekom", Art. 6 Paragraph 1 letter f of the DS-GVO is the legal basis for data processing. In these cases, we are interested in the effective implementation of "online meetings".

Insofar as the processing of personal data within the framework of the online meetings is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or is required for the implementation of pre-contractual measures taken in response to your request, Art. 6 Paragraph 1 letter b) DS-GVO serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.

If no contractual relationship exists, the legal basis is Art. 6 (1) lit. f) DS-GVO. Here too, we are interested in the effective implementation of "online meetings".

Should video and sound recordings be necessary in exceptional cases, this will be done exclusively on the basis of the consent you have given us in accordance with Art.6 Paragraph 1 lit. a) DS-GVO.

(4) Type and scope of data processing:

We use "Cisco WebEx Telekom" to conduct "online meetings". If we want to record "online meetings", we will inform you transparently in advance and - if necessary - ask for your consent. If it is necessary for the purposes of recording the results of an online meeting, we will log the chat content. However, this will generally not be the case.

Automated decision-making within the meaning of Art. 22 DS-GVO is not used.

The following personal data is processed when using "Cisco WebEx Telekom", whereby the scope of the data also depends on the information you provide before or during participation in an "online meeting":

User details (registration information): e.g. user name, activation and conference codes, e-mail address, first and last name, company, organisation ID, participant IP, profile picture (optional)

Configuration and communication data: e.g. device name, IP address, geodata, time zone, activity logs, hardware type

Conference information: e.g. date, time, duration, number of participants, dial-in method, diagnostic information

Text, audio and video data: You may be able to use the chat function in an "online meeting". To this extent, the text entries you make are processed in order to display them in the "online meeting". In order to enable the display of video and the playback of audio, the data from the microphone of your terminal device and from any video camera of the terminal device will be processed for the duration of the meeting. You can switch off or mute the camera or microphone yourself at any time using the "Cisco WebEx Telekom" applications.

(5) Receiver / transmission of data:

With regard to the processing of personal data in connection with participation in "online meetings", there is generally no transfer of data to third parties, unless the data is specifically intended for transfer. Please note that content from "online meetings" as well as personal meetings often serves the purpose of communicating information with customers, interested parties or third parties and is therefore intended to be passed on.

Other recipients are Telekom Deutschland GmbH on the basis of a contract processing agreement pursuant to Art. 28 DS-GVO and Cisco Systems Inc. as subcontractor.

(6) Data processing outside the European Union:

Cisco Systems, Inc. has its headquarters in the USA. Part of the processing of personal data collected when using WebEx therefore takes place in the USA. Telekom Deutschland GmbH has agreed standard contractual clauses with Cisco Systems, Inc. through which suitable guarantees are provided in principle in accordance with Art. 46 DS-GVO. In addition, the data is encrypted during transport via the Internet and is therefore protected against unauthorised access by third parties.

(7) Storage duration:

Your personal data that we process within the scope of your use of "Cisco WebEx Telekom" is generally deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purposes for which it was collected. A requirement for storage may exist in particular if the data is still needed to fulfil contractual services, to check and grant or ward off warranty and, if applicable, guarantee claims. In the case of the statutory storage obligations of 6 years under commercial law or 10 years under tax law, deletion only comes into consideration after the expiry of the respective storage obligation. If and insofar as the processing is based on your consent, the data will only be stored until you revoke your consent, unless there is also another legal basis for the processing.
