Server log files

Every time a user accesses our website and every time a file is downloaded, data regarding this process is temporarily stored in a log file. The stored data is analyzed anonymously and will only be used for internal statistical purposes so that we can continually improve the web content we offer. No person-related use takes place in this respect. In particular, a data set containing the following information is stored upon each user access:

  • the IP address used
  • the operating system used
  • the browser used
  • the time of access
  • the pages you visit on our site
  • the website you last visited (if transmitted)
  • the volume of data transmitted

Use of Google web fonts (local embedding)

On our website we use Google Fonts from Google Inc. The company Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for the European area. We have integrated the Google fonts locally, i.e. on our web server - not on the servers of Google. This means that there is no connection to Google servers and therefore no data transfer or storage in this context.

Use of web fonts

This website uses fonts provided by MyFonts Inc., 600 Unicorn Park Drive, Woburn, MA 01801, USA. Due to the terms of the license, page view tracking is carried out; this enables MyFonts to count the number of visits to our website in order to calculate the license fee. When a visitor accesses our website, data is retrieved from a MyFonts server. This informs MyFonts of your IP address and also provides some technical information about your browser, as almost all web browsers automatically send this data whenever they access a website as part of the connection request. You can find further information about data privacy at MyFonts via the following link: https://www.monotype.com/legal/privacy-policy/web-font-tracking-privacy-policy

Cookies

Our website uses cookies. These are small text files that are placed on your end device via your browser. We use cookies for creating a user-friendly website. Cookies remain on your end device until they expire or until you delete them. They enable us to recognize your browser on your next visit.

If you do not want this to happen, you can configure your browser to inform you, when cookies are placed and to allow this only on a case-by-case basis. Deactivating cookies may diminish the functionality of our website.

Web analysis

Our website uses the web analysis tool Siteimprove, provided by Siteimprove GmbH, a company based in Berlin with servers in Germany and Denmark. This tool uses information of cookies and server log files: this information is transmitted to the Siteimprove server, where it is processed to evaluate visitors’ use of our website and to compile reports for us concerning website activities. Siteimprove does not pass this information on to third parties. IP addresses are irreversibly anonymized before the collected data is made accessible by Siteimprove Analytics. We have concluded a corresponding data processing contract with Siteimprove.

You can prevent Siteimprove from collecting your data at any time by adjusting your current selection under "Data protection settings". Doing so places an opt-out cookie that prevents your data from being collected when you visit our website in future. Please note that web analysis will only be prevented as long as the opt-out cookie is stored in your browser; if you delete the cookie, web analysis will not be prevented in future.

Opt-out - Disable Siteimprove Analytics: Adjust privacy settings

Polyfill

We use the "Polyfill.io" service of The Financial Times Limited, Number One Southwark Bridge, London. This enables us to reproduce content in the best possible quality even on older browser versions. When you load a website that uses the Polyfill service, your browser will download all the Polyfill files necessary to display the website successfully or optimised in your browser. In order to provide the Polyfills, the Service receives certain technical information from your browser, including: browser details; connection data (such as your IP address); the URL of the website that made the request to the Service. This information is used to determine which Polyfills are required by your browser. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter f DSGVO. The processing is based on our legitimate interest in enhancing your user experience and for the general optimisation of our website. The data will be deleted as soon as the purpose for which they were collected has been fulfilled. Further information on the handling of the transferred data can be found in the data protection declaration of polyfill.io: https://polyfill.io/v3/privacy-policy/.

You can prevent the collection and processing of your data by polyfill.io by deactivating the execution of script code in your browser or by installing a script blocker in your browser (you can find this for example at www.noscript.net or www.ghostery.com).

Contact forms

If you wish to use the contact forms on our website to communicate with us, you will be required to enter your forename, surname and email address. We will not be able to process the issue you enter in the contact form without this information. Entering your postal address is optional; it enables us to process your issue and reply via post, if you wish. In addition, our system collects the IP address of the computer you use to submit the form as well as the date and time the form is submitted. The information you provide is collected to the required extent and is used exclusively for the purpose of processing your inquiry.

You can find information about online applications here.

YouTube

We have integrated YouTube videos on our website that are stored at www.youtube.com and can be viewed directly from our website.

They are all integrated in “privacy-enhanced mode”, which means that no data about you as a user is transmitted to YouTube, if you do not watch these videos. Data is only transmitted to the YouTube server when you play the videos. If you are logged into your YouTube account at the same time, this information is attributed to your YouTube user account. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube user account before visiting our website.

YouTube is operated by YouTube LLC, headquartered at 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube is represented by Google Inc., based at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. You can find more information about how YouTube (Google) handles user data at: www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

Mapbox

We use the services of Mapbox Inc. (Mapbox) to display interactive maps on some pages of our website. Using our website may lead to information about your use of this website, including your IP address, being transmitted to Mapbox in the USA.

When you access a page that contains Mapbox maps, your browser establishes a direct connection with Mapbox servers. The map content is directly transmitted by Mapbox to your browser, which integrates the content into the website. We therefore cannot influence the amount of data, which is collected by Mapbox in this manner.

If you do not want Mapbox to process your data via our website, you can deactivate JavaScript in your browser settings. However, if you choose to do so, you will not be able to view the maps on our site.

You can find further information about the purpose and scope of data processing by Mapbox, your rights in this regard, and the configuration options available to protect your privacy in the Mapbox privacy policy at: https://www.mapbox.com/privacy/.

You can prevent Mapbox from placing cookies on your device by deactivating third-party cookies in your browser settings.

Google Maps

This website uses the map service Google Maps from Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). This service is used through our location marketing service provider uberall.com to provide the "Global Locations at a Glance" feature. In order for the Google map material we use to be integrated and displayed in your web browser, your web browser must connect to a Google server when you access the location map. This server can be located in the USA. For more information, please refer to the Google Maps Terms of Use at https://www.google.com/intl/en_ALL/help/terms_maps/. To further enhance the usefulness of the location map feature, you may be asked to approve your location. Of course, you will not be able to release this without problems.

Twitter

We have included a Twitter widget on our Group websites to display tweets of our Twitter account. Therefore, the server is simply connected to Twitter and the content is then processed by our server before it is displayed on our Group pages. This excludes a direct and unknowable communication between the user of the Group websites and Twitter in the first place.

(Personal) data is only transmitted when the user clicks on one of the links within the Twitter post. Regardless of the registration status, data will be transmitted to Twitter from this point on. For this, a connection to Twitter is established, log data is transmitted to Twitter and, if necessary, a cookie is set on the user's computer. According to its own information, Twitter begins to delete, remove the identification or the record of data after a maximum of 10 days; this should normally take place immediately, but can take up to a week. Further information can be found at https://twitter.com/privacy?lang=en#widget-jump.

Career blog's comment function

You can use the comment function to add your own comments. To use the comment function, a user must enter a name; users may choose to enter a pseudonym, if they wish. They must also enter their email address. Entry of an email address is required so that we can pass on any complaints relating to your comments on the blog and ask you to make a statement in this regard. It is not possible to use the comment function without entering this information. In publishing your comment, we save the email address you enter but do not publish it. We also save your IP address. Your name is only published, if you write a comment using your real name rather than a pseudonym. Comments are not reviewed prior to publication. We reserve the right to delete comments that third parties claim to be illegal.

Share buttons on the careers blog

We use secure data Shariff buttons on our web site to provide users with social media buttons. Where data from social networks such as the number of likes for the user is displayed, these requests are made from the web site server. The user therefore remains anonymous via this procedure until they become active when the button is clicked. Clicking transfers the necessary data to the relevant social media pages and assigns the action (share or like) to the IP address or logged-on user account on the platform. Further information about the Shariff project is available at https://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/Shariff-Social-Media-Buttons-mit-Datenschutz-2467514.html.

Links

Our website contains links to other websites in some places. We take all reasonable care to check these links. The company is not responsible for the content of linked pages or for ensuring data privacy on these pages. You can find further information about the social media presences accessible from our site by clicking here.

SSL encryption

For security reasons and in order to safeguard the transmission of confidential data you send to us, this website uses SSL encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by your browser’s address bar, which changes from “http://” to “https://” and displays a lock symbol.

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

Further information according to the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)

Deletion and storage periods of data

If we have stored personal-related data of you, we will only process this data for the time period required to serve the purpose it was stored for or for the time period required by law.

If the storage purpose ceases to exist or if the storage period required by law expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with legal requirements.

Logfiles are deleted according to provider specifications:

  • The access logs of the Web servers capture, which page views took place at which time. They contain the following data: IP, directory protection user, date, time, pages viewed, protocols, status code, data volume, referer, user agent, host name viewed.
  • The IP addresses are stored anonymously. The last three digits are removed, i.e. 127.0.0.1 becomes 127.0.0.*. IPv6 addresses are also anonymized. The anonymous IP addresses are kept for 60 days. Information about the directory protection user used is anonymized after one day.  
  • Error logs, which log incorrect page views, are deleted after seven days. Those include, in addition to error messages, the IP address accessing the page and, depending on the error, the website accessed. 
  • Access via FTP is logged with anonymous information on user name and IP address and stored for 60 days. 
  • The mail logs for sending e-mails from the web environment are anonymized after one day and then kept for 60 days. During anonymization, all data concerning the sender/recipient etc. is removed. Only the data at the time of sending and the information on how the e-mail was processed (queue ID or not sent) are retained.
  • Mail logs for sending via our mail server are deleted after four weeks. The longer retention period is necessary to ensure the functionality of the mail services and to combat spam.
  • It is not possible to individually define the storage period.

A storage going beyond this is exceptionally possible. In this case, however, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

Your data from the input mask of the contact form will be deleted when the respective conversation with you has ended. The conversation is terminated when it can be seen from the circumstances that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified. The additional personal data collected during the sending process (e.g. IP address) will also be deleted according to the aforementioned provider specifications.

Categories of recipient

Within Salzgitter AG, access to your data is only afforded to people and departments that require access to perform their duties within Salzgitter AG, to pursue our legitimate interests or to fulfill contractual and legal obligations.

To enable us to offer you the best possible service and remain competitive, we also exchange data with other allied companies of Salzgitter AG where necessary to pursue our legitimate interests, provided that your interests or your basic rights or freedoms do not outweigh our interest. Whenever we exchange information with allied companies, we guarantee that data is transmitted in accordance with data privacy requirements and that your personal data is protected.

As a fundamental rule, if you provide your personal data to us, we will not pass this data on to third parties. Such data will only be disclosed

  • in order to fulfill legal obligations to authorized authorities,
  • in accordance with consent you provided and
  • to IT service providers, e.g. in relation to administration and hosting of our website.

Data transfer to third countries

Data is only transferred to countries outside of the EU or the EEA (so-called third countries) insofar as this is stated in the present data privacy statement, is necessary to perform contracts, or is legally required, or in the case you have given us your consent to do so.

Rights of data subjects

All data subjects have a right of access in accordance with Art. 15 GDPR. If we process your personal data, you have the right of rectification in accordance with Art. 16 GDPR, the right to erasure in accordance with Art. 17 GDPR, the right to restrict the processing in accordance with Art. 18 GDPR, the right to object pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR and the right of data portability pursuant to Art. 20 GDPR. Restrictions to the right of access and the right to erasure apply pursuant to Sections 34 and 35 of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). Furthermore, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority (Art. 77 GDPR in conjunction with Section 19 BDSG).

If you have given us consent to process your personal data, you can also revoke this consent at any time by the same method you first provided it. You can revoke your consent without completing a form, e.g. by emailing datenschutz.holding@salzgitter-ag.de or by sending a message to the contact address listed above. Revoking your consent does not affect the legality of the processing performed on the basis of your previously issued consent.

Right to object to data processing

Pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data performed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR (data processing for the purposes of legitimate interests).

If you do raise an objection, we will no longer process your personal data for the purposes to which you have objected, unless

  • we can demonstrate overriding legitimate grounds that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or
  • the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

In the case that the objection only or also relates to data processing for the purpose of direct marketing, we will no longer process your personal data for this purpose.

You can raise an objection without completing a form, e.g. by emailing datenschutz.holding@salzgitter-ag.de or by sending a message to the contact address listed above.

Legal basis for processing

Personal data processing relating to the use of contact forms is performed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR, provided that the purpose of making contact serves to fulfill a contract or perform pre-contractual measures.

If our company is subject to a legal obligation which necessitates the processing of personal data, this processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) GDPR.

If we obtain your consent for personal data processing operations, this consent serves as the legal basis for processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR.

Furthermore, processing operations can be performed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR, whereby processing is necessary to pursue a legitimate interest held either by our company or a third party, provided that the data subject’s interests, basic rights, or basic freedoms do not override our interest.

We use server log files, cookies, web fonts, Mapbox, embedded YouTube videos and web analysis tools so that you can use all of our website’s functions to their full extent and in order to structure and optimize our website in accordance with its users’ requirements. If you contact us via our contact form or using the functions in our Career blog, we will use your data for the purpose of interacting with you and for corporate communications.

Obligation to provide personal data

As a fundamental rule, there is no obligation to provide personal data when visiting our website. Contractual regulations may provide otherwise. If the specified personal data is not provided, in some circumstances, it may not be possible to achieve the individual described purposes.

No automated decision-making

We do not use fully automated decision-making within the meaning of Art. 22 GDPR.

Amendments to the data privacy statement

As the internet continues to develop, it will be necessary to make periodic amendments to the data privacy statement. Reviewing the data privacy statement at regular intervals will give you the opportunity to stay apprised of amendments.
