We process data that we receive within the scope of the handling of our business relationship with you. We receive the data directly from you. Either in the case of inquiries from interested persons and con-tact inquiries, the placing of an order or order processing (see point “Information on data collection and processing”).
The data collection and data processing are necessary for the execution of the contract and are based on Art. 6 para. 1 letter b) GDPR. The use for direct advertising is based on Art. 6 para. 1 letter f) GDPR. It is in our justified interest to draw your attention to special offers by way of direct advertising. Passing on of the data to third parties does not take place unless prescribed by law, such as, for ex-ample, to the tax authority within the scope of tax laws.
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose for which it is processed and/or after the expiry of the statutory retention periods (such as, for example, accounting documents relevant under tax and trade law: 10 years; commercial and business correspondence: 6 years; records con-cerning suppliers, type, quantity, acquisition, delivery: 3 years).
You have the right to object at any time to the use of your data for the purpose of direct advertising. Moreover, you are entitled to apply for information on the data about you stored by us and, in the event of incorrectness of the data, to demand correction or, in the case of inadmissible data storage, the de-letion of the data. You are, moreover, entitled to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority (see the point Right of appeal).
Duration of the storage of data
After the provision of the contractually owed service, your personal data will be stored for the purpose of the execution (desired at the point in time of the conclusion of the contract or at a later date) of fol-low-up orders for 10 years and for tax purposes for 10 years. In the case of interested parties and con-tact inquiries, we store your data for 3 years.

After the expiry of the above-mentioned periods at the latest, your personal data will be deleted.

Data collection and data processing are required for the execution of the contract and are based on Art. 6, para. 1, letter b) GDPR. No passing on of data to third parties takes place unless prescribed by law, such as, for example, to the tax authorities within the scope of tax laws.

3. Employee data
See separate submittal to be made to employees.
Purpose of processing
Applications online, by e-mail or through the post: if you apply to us on the basis of a vacancy adver-tisement, we will collect your personal data such as first name, surname, address, telephone number, e-mail address, enclosures (covering letter, CV (résumé), certificates, photo) and store them for the duration of the selection process.
Your data are used exclusively by persons from the HR department and/or the management authorised to do so for processing within the scope of the selection process. No passing-on of your personal data to third parties takes place.
Should the specific job that you are applying for have already been allocated elsewhere, but, because of your profile, you can also be considered for later employment or employment in a partner company or subsidiary, we will, before further storage or passing-on of the application, obtain your express con-sent, unless you have already consented to such storage and/or passing-on in your application.
If you send us an unsolicited application and, for this purpose, you use our general contact e-mail ad-dress, the contents of your application mail can be viewed by personnel not authorised to do so. There is a requirement to the effect that the application documents are to be immediately passed on uno-pened to the HR department and that the incoming mail is deleted. If you want to rule out this possibil-ity, we ask you to contact us by telephone before you send off an unsolicited application so that you can be informed of the contact data of the correct contact person.
The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 letter. b) GDPR, for the processing of pre-contractual measures.
The data will, if you do not inform us to the contrary, be deleted 6 months after the conclusion of the application process and/or destroyed in the case of postal applications. Because of the long application and selection periods in the case of trainees we store their data in Germany for up to 18 months.
If the respective statutory conditions are met, you have the following rights: right to information about your data stored by us; correction, deletion, restriction of the processing of your data or objection to processing as well as the right to data portability. You do, of course, continue to have the possibility at any time to arrange for the deletion and/or destruction of all of your application documents by sending us an e-mail to: personal(at)kiesow.org.

We, as the responsible body, process personal image files which we collect within the scope of the video surveillance on the company’s site. No storage is carried out.

You are, moreover, entitled to a right of objection to a supervisory authority (see point Right of objection).
In the event of questions on this, our data protection officer will be glad to be at your disposal.
Within the scope of the provision of the service, we assign service companies separately obliged to secrecy and data protection to special areas where access to personal data cannot be ruled out.

- Public bodies and institutions (tax authorities) should a statutory or official obligation exist.
- Other bodies, for which you have given us your consent for data transmission.
Passing-on to authorities is carried out exclusively if overriding legal provisions are involved.

With data processing for the purpose of the execution (at the point in time of the conclusion of the con-tract or desired at a later point in time) of follow-up orders for 10 years, entrepreneurial interests are pursued from a data protection law point of view.

As a rule, the conclusion of a contract is not possible without correct information from you.
According to Art. 15 GDPR, you have the right to receive information about the data stored re-garding your person, including possible recipients and the planned storage duration. If incor-rect personal data is processed, you will be entitled to a right of correction in accordance with Art. 16 GDPR. If the statutory conditions are met, you may demand the deletion or restriction of processing and also lodge an objection against the processing (Art. 17, 18 and 21 GDPR).
If you want the data to be deleted, but we are still obliged by law to retain it, access to your data will be restricted (blocked). The same applies in the case of an objection. You can enforce your right to data portability if the technical possibilities are available for the recipient and for us.
As the contact person for your rights as a person affected, our data protection officer will be pleased to be at your disposal at datenschutz(at)kiesow.org.
