5. further functions and offers of our website

(1) In addition to the purely informational use of our website, we offer various services that you can use if you are interested. For this purpose, you usually have to provide further personal data, which we use to provide the respective service and for which the aforementioned data processing principles apply.

(2) In some cases, we use external service providers to process your data. These have been carefully selected by us, checked and commissioned with regard to the data protection standards applicable there, are bound by our instructions and are regularly monitored.

(3) Furthermore, we may pass on your personal data to third parties if we conclude contracts or offer similar services together with partners. You will receive more detailed information on this when you provide your personal data or in the description of the offer below.

(4) If our service providers or partners are based in a country outside the European Economic Area (EEA), we will inform you about the consequences of this circumstance in the description of the offer.

6. use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc ("Google").
We use Google Analytics to analyze and regularly improve the use of our website. The statistics obtained enable us to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user.
Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site.
Google also processes your personal data in the USA. Before giving your consent pursuant to Art. 49 (1) (a) of the German Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO), we would like to point out in particular that, in the absence of an adequacy decision and suitable guarantees, there may not be an adequate level of data protection in the USA, as data protection laws do not comply with the requirements of the DS-GVO, and in particular data subject rights may not be enforceable.

Cookies are only set if you give us your consent to do so. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DS-GVO ("consent"). You can disable the tool via the cookie settings by accessing the cookie settings via the button at the bottom left and changing your selection there.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, in the event that IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before this happens. This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". This means that IP addresses are further processed in a shortened form, thus excluding the possibility of personal references. If the data collected about you contains a personal reference, this is immediately excluded and the personal data is immediately deleted. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the internet.

The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.

Third party information: Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001. user conditions: www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html, overview of data protection: www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/learn/privacy.html, as well as the data protection declaration: www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

7. doubleClick by Google
This website uses the online marketing tool DoubleClick by Google. DoubleClick uses cookies to serve ads relevant to users, to improve campaign performance reports, or to prevent a user from seeing the same ads more than once. Google uses a cookie ID to help identify which ads are shown in which browser, and to prevent them from being shown more than once. DoubleClick may also use cookie IDs to track conversions related to ad requests. For example, when a user sees a DoubleClick ad and then visits the advertiser's site on the same browser to make a purchase. According to Google, DoubleClick cookies do not contain any personally identifiable information.
Google also processes your personal data in the USA. Before giving your consent in accordance with Art. 49 Para. 1 letter a DS-GVO, we would like to point out in particular that in the USA, without an adequacy finding and without suitable guarantees, there may not be an adequate level of data protection, as data protection laws do not comply with the provisions of the DS-GVO, and in particular the rights of data subjects may not be enforceable.

Cookies are only set if you give us your consent to do so. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DS-GVO ("consent"). You can disable the tool via the cookie settings by accessing the cookie settings via the button at the bottom left and changing your selection there.

Due to the marketing tools used, your browser will establish a direct connection with the Google server if you have given your voluntary consent. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of DoubleClick, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider will find out and save your IP address.
In addition to refusing your voluntary consent, you can alternatively prevent participation in this tracking procedure in various other ways: a) by making appropriate settings in your browser software, in particular by suppressing third-party cookies so that you do not receive third-party ads; b) by deactivating cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to refuse cookies from the domain "www. googleadservices.com" domain, www.google.de/settings/ads, this setting being cleared when you delete your cookies; c) by disabling interest-based ads from the providers that are part of the "About Ads" self-regulatory campaign via the link www.aboutads.info/choices, this setting being cleared when you delete your cookies; d) by permanently disabling them in your browser via the link www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this offer to their full extent.
Further information about DoubleClick by Google can be found at www.google.de/doubleclick and support.google.com/adsense/answer/2839090, as well as general information about Google's privacy policy: www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy. Alternatively, you can visit the website of

8. application
You can register online for our applicant portal. To do so, you must send us your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address. Based on this data, we can then grant you access to our applicant portal and set up an appropriate account for you. You will be sent corresponding access data with which you can log in. 
If you then apply to us online, the data you provide will be processed by us to check whether we would like to establish and carry out an employment relationship with you. To do this, you must participate in our online assessment center. 
If you apply online via our career portal, your data will be stored and processed on the systems of our software partner HR Diagnostics AG. A corresponding order processing contract has been concluded with this partner in accordance with Art. 28 DS-GVO. Our software partner will only process your data in accordance with the legal requirements and only in accordance with instructions in the context of the fulfilment of the contract as a processor. He has also taken the necessary security measures as well as technical and organizational measures.
During the application procedure, in addition to the form of address, surname and first name, the usual correspondence data such as postal address, e-mail address and telephone numbers will be stored. In addition, application documents such as letters of motivation, curriculum vitae, professional, training and further training qualifications and job references are also recorded.
The applicant data sent to us and entered by you will generally only be processed until the time of the decision on hiring if an employment relationship is not established. Three months after the rejection has been sent or after the application documents have been returned to the applicant, the data will be deleted.
Data will only be stored in an applicant pool if you expressly give us your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DS-GVO in conjunction with Art. 7 DS-GVO). This storage will be for a maximum period of two years. This consent is voluntary. You can refuse it without giving reasons and without having to fear any disadvantages. You can also revoke this consent at any time in text form (e.g. letter, e-mail) with future effect to the contact data shown above, without having to fear any disadvantages.
If we enter into an employment relationship with you, the data that you have made available to us will be processed to establish, implement and, if necessary, terminate the employment relationship. 
The data may be processed for statistical purposes (e.g. reporting). No conclusions can be drawn about individual persons.
You can delete your created account at any time (bewerbungen@wegmann-automotive.com). 
Legal basis is § 26 Federal Data Protection Act ("BDSG") (§ 26 para. 8 p. 2 BDSG).

9. google tag manager
This website uses the Google Tag Manager from Google. Google Tag Manager is a solution that allows marketers to manage website tags through one interface. The Tag Manager tool itself (which implements the tags) is a cookie-less domain and does not collect any personal information. The tool triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If disabled at the domain or cookie level, it remains disabled for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager. 
Google also processes your personal data in the USA. Before you give your consent in accordance with Art. 49 Para. 1 letter a DS-GVO, we would like to point out in particular that in the USA there may not be an adequate level of data protection without a decision on adequacy and without suitable guarantees, as data protection laws do not comply with the provisions of the DS-GVO and in particular the rights of data subjects may not be enforceable.

Cookies are only set if you give us your consent to do so. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DS-GVO ("consent"). You can disable the tool via the cookie settings by accessing the cookie settings via the button at the bottom left and changing your selection there.

10. CAPTCHA
We use CAPTCHA, which protects our website from spam and abuse. CAPTCHA prevents automated software (so-called bots) from carrying out abusive activities on the website, i.e. it checks whether the entries made are actually from a human being. To determine this, the following data is collected and processed:
- Referrer (address of the page on which the captcha is used)
- IP address of the user
- Google Account (if the user is logged in at Google, this will be recognized and assigned)
- Input behaviour of the user (e.g. answering the CAPTCHA question, input speed into the form fields, order of selection of input fields by the user) 
- Browser, browser size and resolution, browser plugins, date, language setting
- Presentation instructions (CSS) and scripts (Javascript) of the website
- Mouse or touch events within the page
The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f DS-GVO ("legitimate interest").

11. YouTube Video Plugin
To integrate third-party content, data (IP address, time of visit, device and browser information) is collected via the YouTube video plugin in the extended data protection mode used by us, transmitted to Google and subsequently processed by Google only when you play a video.

12. no social plugins
We do not use social plugins. We only use links to our social media pages: Kununu, Facebook, Xing, LinkedIn, Instagram, YouTube

13. store locator
Our website uses a store locator so that you can quickly find our products at a dealer near you. 
We use Google Maps from Google Inc. to do this, which allows us to display interactive maps directly on the website and allows you to use the map function to find the nearest retailer based on your location for our products.
When you visit our site, no personal data is initially disclosed to the provider. We provide you with the opportunity to communicate directly with the provider via our map. Only if you give your consent will the provider receive the information that you have visited the corresponding website of our online offer. In addition, the data mentioned in the section "Collection of personal data when visiting our website" of this statement will be transmitted. This happens regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in at Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not want the assignment with your profile at Google, you have to log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as user profiles and uses them for the purpose of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide need-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right.
Google also processes your personal data in the USA. Before you give your consent in accordance with Art. 49 Para. 1 letter a DS-GVO, we would like to point out in particular that in the USA there may not be an adequate level of data protection without a decision on adequacy and without suitable guarantees, as data protection laws do not comply with the provisions of the DS-GVO and in particular the rights of data subjects may not be enforceable.

Cookies are only set if you give us your consent to do so. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DS-GVO ("consent"). You can disable the tool via the cookie settings by accessing the cookie settings via the button at the bottom left and changing your selection there.

Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing can be found in the provider's privacy policy. There you will also find further information about your rights and settings to protect your privacy: www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

14. further functions and offers of our website
In addition to the purely informative use of our website, we offer various services which you can use if you are interested. For this purpose, you will generally have to provide additional personal data which we use to provide the respective service and to which the aforementioned data processing principles apply.
In some cases we use external service providers to process your data. These have been carefully selected by us, checked and commissioned with regard to the data protection standards applicable there, are bound by our instructions and are checked regularly.
Furthermore, we may pass on your personal data to third parties if contracts or similar services are offered by us together with partners. You will receive more detailed information on this when you provide your personal data or in the description of the offer.
If our service providers or partners are based in a country outside the European Economic Area (EEA), we will inform you about the consequences of this in the description of the offer.
 
15. objection or revocation against the processing of your data
If you have given your consent to process your data, you can revoke it at any time. Such revocation will affect the permissibility of processing your personal data after you have given it to us.
Insofar as we base the processing of your personal data on the weighing of interests, you may object to the processing. This is the case if the processing is in particular not necessary for the fulfilment of a contract with you. In the event of such an objection, please explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we have done. In the event of your justified objection, we will examine the facts of the case and will either stop or adapt the data processing or show you our compelling reasons worthy of protection on the basis of which we will continue the processing.
Of course, you can object to the processing of your personal data for advertising and data analysis purposes at any time. You can inform us about your objection to advertising at the following contact details: datenschutz[at]wegmann-automotive.com.

16. recipient of the data
We transmit your data to the specialist departments within Wegmann as far as this is necessary. 
The basis of authorization for any further data transfer within the group is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DS-GVO ("legitimate interest"). According to this, data processing is lawful if the processing is necessary to safeguard our legitimate interests, provided that the interests or fundamental rights of the data subject do not outweigh these. In the recitals to the DS-GVO, Recital 48 specifies the legitimate interest in transfer within a group of companies. According to this, transfer within a group of companies for internal administrative purposes with regard to the processing of customer data must be qualified as a legitimate interest on our part within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f DS-GVO. 
In some cases we use external service providers to process your data. These have been carefully selected and commissioned by us, are bound by our instructions and are regularly checked. All requirements of Art. 28 DS-GVO are observed.

17. place of the data processing operations 
All processing of your personal data takes place either in Germany or in member states of the European Union. Your personal data will not be transferred by us to countries outside the member states of the European Union (so-called third countries) or to other international organizations, unless otherwise stated in this document. 
If we transfer personal data to service providers outside the EU, this will only take place if the third country has been confirmed by the EU Commission as having an adequate level of data protection or if other appropriate data protection guarantees (e.g. binding internal company data protection regulations or an agreement on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission) are in place or the consent of the person concerned has been obtained (Art. 44 ff. DS-GVO). 

18. security / technical and organizational measures
We take all necessary technical and organizational measures, taking into account the provisions of Articles 24, 25 and 32 of the DS-GVO, to protect your personal data from loss, destruction, access, modification or distribution by unauthorized persons and misuse. 
For example, we comply with the legal requirements for pseudonymization and encryption of personal data, for confidentiality, integrity, availability and the resilience of systems and services in connection with processing, for the availability of personal data and the possibility of quickly restoring it in the event of a physical or technical incident, and for the establishment of procedures for regular review, assessment and evaluation of the effectiveness of the technical and organizational measures to ensure the security of processing. 
Furthermore, we also observe the provisions of Art. 25 DS-GVO with regard to the principles of "privacy by design" and "privacy by default".

20. Facebook Custom Audiences / Facebook Pixel

1 - Information/Purpose:

This website uses the so-called "Facebook Pixel" of the social network "Facebook", which is operated by Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (Meta) as the responsible party, for the following purposes:

Facebook (Website) Custom Audiences
We use the Facebook Pixel and the Conversions API on our website for remarketing purposes in order to be able to address you again within 180 days. This allows users of the website to be shown interest-based advertisements, so-called "Facebook ads", when visiting the social network "Facebook" or other websites that also use this method. In this way, we pursue the interest of displaying advertisements that are of interest to you in order to make our website or offers more interesting for you as a user.

Facebook Conversion
In addition, with the help of the Facebook Pixel and the Conversions API, we want to ensure that our Facebook Ads correspond to the potential interest of users and do not have a harassing effect. With the help of the Facebook Pixel, we can track the effectiveness of the Facebook Ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook Ad (so-called "conversion").

Due to the marketing tools used (Facebook Pixel and Conversions API), your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with Facebook's server as soon as you have agreed to the use of cookies requiring consent and have thus given us the necessary consent. Through the integration of the Facebook pixel and the use of the Conversions API, Facebook receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding web page of our website, or clicked on an ad of ours. If you are registered with a Facebook service, Facebook can assign the visit to your account. We have no influence on this.

The processing of data by Facebook takes place within the framework of Facebook's data usage policy. Specific information and details about the Facebook Pixel and Conversions API and how it works can also be found in Facebook's help section.

2 - Recipient:

Joint responsibility: We as WEGMANN automotive GmbH are jointly responsible with Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (Meta) for the collection and transmission of data as part of this process. This is for the following purposes:

The creation of individualized or appropriate advertisements, as well as for their optimization.
The delivery of commercial and transactional messages (e.g. via Messenger).
The following processing operations are therefore not covered by joint processing:

Processing that takes place after collection and transmission is the sole responsibility of Meta.
The creation of reports and analyses in aggregated and anonymized form is carried out as part of commissioned processing and is therefore our responsibility.

For joint responsibility, we have concluded a corresponding agreement with Facebook, which can be accessed here: www.facebook.com/legal/controller_addendum.

This sets out the respective responsibilities for fulfilling the obligation under the GDPR with regard to joint responsibility.


The contact details of the responsible company, as well as Facebook's data protection officer, are available here: www.facebook.com/about/privacy


More information on how Meta processes personal data, including its legal basis and further information on data subject rights is located here: www.facebook.com/about/privacy.
