Your rights as a data subject

You can exercise the following rights at any time by using the contact details provided for our data protection officer:

  • Information on your data stored by us and the processing thereof,
  • Rectification of incorrect personal data,
  • Erasure of your data stored by us,
  • Restriction of the data processing insofar as we are not permitted to erase your data yet on the basis of statutory requirements,
  • Objecting to the processing of your data by us, and
  • Data portability, insofar as you have agreed to the data processing or have concluded a contract with us.

If you have granted us consent you can withdraw it at any time with effect for the future.


You can lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority competent for you at any time. Your supervisory authority is the one which is competent for the federal state in which your place of residence or place of work are located or the alleged violation occurred.  You will find a list of supervisory authorities (for the not-public area) with address details here.


Purpose of the data processing by the controller and third parties

We only process your personal data for the purposes specified in this privacy policy. We will not pass your personal data on to any third parties for any purpose other than those specified. We will only pass your personal data on to third parties, if:

  • you have granted your explicit consent for this,
  • the processing is necessary for handling of a contract with you,
  • the processing is necessary for the purpose of fulfilling a legal obligation,
  • the processing is necessary for the protection of legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest that merits protection in your data not being passed on.


Protection of applicant data

Processing applications


We process personal data when processing your application. Personal data that you provide us with in connection with an application will only be processed by us in connection with the related application procedure.


We only record personal data (particularly first name, surname, address, e-mail, position applied for, information from the application) which is necessary for the application procedure. For the full assessment of the application in our company it is also necessary that information on your previous professional career be available to us.


The data will be stored until the application procedure has been completed. If the application is unsuccessful, the data will generally be erased within six months from the date when the decision is announced. If the application is successful the data will be included in your personnel file. Longer storage of data will only occur if you have consented to longer storage for the purpose of your inclusion in our applicant pool.


In the course of the application procedure we use service providers for application management, which process the data on our behalf.


The data processing in connection with applications occurs on the basis of Article 26 of the German Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz – BDSG) for the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship, as well as on the basis of Article 6(1) point b) GDPR for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.


Applicant pool


If you would like to release your application for other positions, you may be included in our application pool, in which case we will store your data in a data pool and check whether your application fits another position.


Before you are included in the data pool, we obtain the following consent:


[ ] I would also like my data to be processed for the purpose of filling other vacancies. For that purpose my data will be included in a data pool for filling other vacancies at ETECTURE GmbH. If my application matches another vacancy, ETECTURE GmbH may contact me in this regard. I can revoke this consent at any time.


Your data will be processed by us within the framework of the application pool on the basis of your consent in accordance with Article 6(1) point a) GDPR.


Erasure or blocking of the data

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data as long as this is necessary to achieve the purposes specified herein or in accordance with the various storage periods prescribed by applicable legislation. Once the respective purpose has ceased to exist / those time periods have ended, the relevant data will be blocked or erased routinely and in accordance with the provisions of law.


Recording of general information when you visit our website

If you access our website, information of a general nature will be automatically recorded. That information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and the like. It is exclusively information which does not permit any inferences to be made regarding your person.


That information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver website content requested by you and arises as a matter of course during use of the Internet. The data is processed for the following purposes, in particular:

  • ensuring problem-free creation of a connection to the website,
  • ensuring problem-free use of our website,
  • to evaluate system security and stability; and
  • for further administrative purposes.

The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest arising from the above-mentioned purposes of the data collection. We do not use your data to draw inferences regarding your person. The only recipients of the data are the controller and any contract processors.


Anonymous information of this kind may be statistically evaluated by us for the purpose of optimising our website and the technology behind it.



Like many other websites we also use so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files which are transferred onto your hard drive by a website server. As a result we automatically receive certain data, for example the IP address, the browser used, the operating system and your connection to the Internet.


Cookies cannot be used to start up programmes or transfer viruses into a computer. Through the information contained in cookies we can facilitate navigation on our site for you and ensure that our web pages are correctly displayed.


On no account will the data recorded by us be passed on to third parties, nor will any link be created with personal data without your consent.


In principle, you can of course also view our website without cookies. Internet browsers are generally set to accept cookies. You can generally deactivate the use of cookies at any time through the settings of your browser. Please use the help functions of your Internet browser to find out how you can change those settings. Please note that individual functions of our website may not function if you have deactivated the use of cookies.


SSL encryption

In order to protect the security of your data during transmission, we use encryption processes corresponding to the state of the art of technology (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.


Contact form

If you contact us with questions of any kind by e-mail or contact form, you grant us your voluntary consent for the purposes of contacting you. For that purpose it is necessary to provide a valid e-mail address, which serves the purpose of attributing the enquiry and the subsequent reply to it. The provision of further data is optional. The information provided by you will be stored for the purposes of processing the enquiry, as well as for possible follow-up queries. Personal data is automatically erased once the enquiry submitted by you has been dealt with.


Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", i.e. text files which are stored on your computer and make it possible to analyse your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie on your use of this website is generally transferred to and stored on a Google server in the USA. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website Google will first abbreviate your IP address in Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Treaty on the European Economic Area. In exceptional cases only, the full IP address is transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. On behalf of the operator of this website Google uses that information to assess your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide the website operator with other services associated with the use of the website and the use of the Internet. The IP address provided by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics will not be combined with any other Google data.


The purposes of the data processing are the analysis of the use the website and the compilation of reports on activities on it. On the basis of the use of the website and the Internet further associated services will then be provided. The processing is based on the website operator’s legitimate interest.


You can prevent the storage of the cookies by setting your browser software accordingly. However, please note that if you do so you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent the recording of the data generated by the cookie that relates to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of that data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available via the following link: Browser add-on for deactivating Google Analytics.


In addition or as an alternative to the browser add-on you can prevent the tracking by Google Analytics on our website by clicking on this link. An opt-out cookie will then be installed on your device. Recording by Google Analytics for this website and for that browser will thus be prevented in the future, as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.


Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)

To enable our content to be presented correctly and in a graphically appealing manner across all the different browsers, on this website we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Webfonts. Google Webfonts will be transferred into the cache of your browser to avoid multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Webfonts or prevents the access, content will be displayed in a standard font.


Calling up script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible, though it is currently unclear whether and for what purposes this may occur, that in that case operators of relevant libraries will collect data.


You will find the privacy policy of the library operator Google here.


Use of Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps API to visually present geographical information. When Google Maps is used Google also collects, processes and uses data concerning the use of the map functions by visitors. You can find more detailed information on the data processing by Google in the Google privacy policyIn the privacy centre at that address you can also adjust your personal privacy settings.


You can find detailed instructions on the management of your data in connection with Google products here.


Embedded YouTube videos

We embed YouTube videos on some of our web pages. The operator of the relevant plug-ins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. If you visit a page with the YouTube plug-in a connection is created with YouTube’s servers  and YouTube is notified which pages you visit. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube will be able to personally ascribe your surfing behaviour to you. You can prevent this by first logging out of your YouTube account.


If you start up a YouTube video, the provider will install cookies that collect information on user behaviour.


If you have deactivated the storage of cookies for the Google ad programme, you will also not receive such cookies when watching Youtube videos. However, YouTube also places non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you would like to prevent this you must block the storage of cookies in your browser.


You can find further information on data protection at "YouTube" in the provider's privacy policy.


Use of SalesViewer® technology

On this website data is collected and stored for the purposes of marketing, marketing research and optimisation with the SalesViewer® technology of SalesViewer® GmbH on the basis of legitimate interests of the website operator (Article 6(1) point f) GDPR).


For that purpose a JavaScript-based code is used, which serves the purpose of the collection of company-related data and appropriate use. The data collected with that technology is encrypted through a non-retroactive one-way function (so-called hashing). The data is immediately pseudonymised and is not used to personally identify the visitor to this website.


The collection and storage of data can be objected to at any time with effect for the future. To do so, please click on this link in order to prevent future recording by SalesViewer® within this website. An opt-out cookie for this website will be installed on your device.

Additional data processing on our temporary landing page

On our temporary landing page the following data processing occurs in addition to the above-mentioned points:


Integration of a Spotify playlist


We have integrated a widget into our website in the form of Spotify playlist of Spotify AB, Regeringsgatan 19 111 53 Stockholm, Sweden ("Spotify"). When the playlist is displayed log data is transferred to Spotify’s servers. If you are also a user of Spotify, that data can also be ascribed to your user account. 


The data processing in connection with the widget occurs on the basis of our overriding legitimate interest in optimum marketing of our service in accordance with Article 6(1) point f) GDPR.


You can find further information on data processing at Spotify here.

We reserve the right to adjust this privacy policy from time to time so that it always fulfils current legal requirements or in order to incorporate changes of our services in the privacy policy, for example when new services are introduced. When you visit us again the new privacy policy will then apply.
