The temporary storage of the data, above all the IP address, is necessary for the operation of a website visit in order to enable the provision of the website. A further storage of the log data is carried out in order to ensure the functionality of the website and the security of the IT systems, in particular the web server. These purposes form our legitimate interests.
We store the server log files for 7 days. However, we reserve the right to store the server log files longer for a subsequent check should there be concrete indications of an unlawful use.
The North Rhine-Westphalia State Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information provides information on how to pseudonymise your IP address. You can find out more in this respect under:
Information is stored in the cookie, which respectively arises in connection with the specifically used terminal device. However, this does not mean that we directly receive knowledge of your identity hereby. Cookies do not cause any damages to your terminal device either.
By using technical cookies, we aim to make the use of our service more convenient for you. We therefore use so-called session cookies in order to recognise that you have visited individual pages of our website already. The majority of cookies are, as a rule, deleted automatically once you have left our site (“maximum age: end of session”).
Example: If you agree to the use of website tracking technologies of third parties when our website is called up for the first time, then your selection will be stored in a cookie. This cookie notes your selection, even if you now call up other sub-pages of our homepage.
The data processed by cookies are necessary for the stated purposes in order to safeguard our legitimate interests as well as those of third parties according to Art. 6 Para. 1 Sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.
The majority of browsers accept cookies automatically. You can, however, configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or so that a message always appears before a new cookie is created. The full deactivation of cookies may, however, lead to the fact that you cannot use all functions of our website.
If you contact us (e.g. via our contact form under https://wocklum-gruppe.de/kontakt/, by email or phone), we will process your details to the extent that this is necessary to reply to the contact request and for possibly requested measures.
If your message is carried out with the aim to initiate a contractual relationship with us or is necessary to fulfil or (reverse) process an existing contract between you and us, we shall carry out the processing of the corresponding data based on Art. 6 Para. 1 Sentence 1 lit. b GDPR.
If your message is of a general nature, we base the processing of your request on our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 Sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.

6. Application procedure
Should you submit a job application to us, we shall process the application documents submitted by you. Which personal data we process when doing so will depend upon which data you send in to us. In addition to this, we shall process data collected in the course of the job interview.
The legal basis for processing you application documents is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 b in conjunction with Article 88 GDPR, Section 26 of the German Federal Data Protection Regulations [BDSG].
It is possible that your personal details will be passed on to other businesses within the Wocklum Group in the course of the application procedure.

These justified interests are the optimisation and centralisation of our HR systems, reciprocal support across the Group in our recruitment systems as well as for internal administration reasons.
In the event that your application is rejected by us, we shall retain your data for six months from the date on which you receive our rejection.

Your consent for your application documents to be saved for a period of time longer than that specified above will be voluntary. Should you not grant your consent, we shall be unable to take your application into consideration in the event that we subsequently have a vacancy which would be suitable for you. Your application documents will be removed from the pool of applicants when we receive your rejection.
We would recommend that you send in your application documents in a password protected PDF file / ZIP file or similar. Your application documents will be handled in total confidence.

9. Facebook fan page
We have set up a Facebook fan page for our company. We are jointly responsible for the data processing together with Facebook: Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2 Ireland. You can find details regarding the delimitation of the responsibility in the following agreement:
You can find further information here https://facebook.com/policy.php.
We would like to point out to you that you use this Facebook page and its functions at your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of the interactive functions (e.g. comments, sharing, assessment). Alternatively, you can also call the information offered through this page on our internet offering at https://wocklum-gruppe.de.
When visiting our Facebook page, Facebook collects among others your IP address as well as further information, which is available in the form of cookies on your PC. This information is used in order to make statistical information available to us as the operator of the Facebook page about the use of the Facebook page. Facebook makes more detailed information available in this respect under the following link: https://en-gb.facebook.com/help/pages/insights
The data collected in this context about you are processed by Facebook Ltd. and, if applicable, transferred to countries outside of the European Union. Which information Facebook receives and how this is used is described by Facebook in a general form in its data usage guidelines. You will also find information there regarding possibilities for contacting Facebook as well as the setting options for advertisements. The data usage guidelines are available under the following link: https://en-gb.facebook.com/about/privacy. You can find the full data policies of Facebook here: https://de-de.facebook.com/full_data_use_policy
In which way Facebook uses the data from the visit to Facebook pages for its own purposes, to what extent activities on the Facebook page are allocated to individual users, how long Facebook stores these data and whether data from a visit to the Facebook page are forwarded to third parties, is not conclusively and clearly stated by Facebook and is not known to us. When accessing a Facebook page, the IP address allocated to your terminal device is transmitted to Facebook. According to information from Facebook, this IP address is anonymised (in case of “German” IP addresses). Facebook additionally stores information about the terminal devices of its users (e.g. within the scope of the function “registration notification”); if applicable it is possible for Facebook to therefore allocate IP addresses to individual users. If you as a user are currently registered with Facebook, a cookie will be located on your terminal device with your Facebook ID. This way Facebook is in the position to track that you have visited this site and how you have used it. This also applies to all other Facebook pages. Via Facebook buttons into websites, it is possible for Facebook to record your visits to these website pages and to allocate these to your Facebook profile. Based on these data contents or advertising can be offered tailormade to suit your interests. If you would like to avoid this, you should log out of Facebook or deactivate the function “stay logged in”, delete the cookies existing on your device and end and re-start your browser. This way Facebook information, through which you can be directly identified, will be erased. This way you can use our Facebook page without your Facebook identifier being disclosed. If you access interactive functions of the page (like, comment, share, messages, etc.), a Facebook login screen will appear. After a possible login, you will again be recognisable to Facebook as a specific user. You can find information in this respect, how you can manage or erase information about you, on the following Facebook Support pages: https://en-gb.facebook.com/about/privacy
As Facebook has distributed its servers all over the world, it cannot be excluded that your personal data are stored and further processed worldwide, among others on servers in the USA. These could be countries in which the level of data protection is not as high as within the European Union.
