III.    General Data Processing Information

1.    Extent to which personal data is processed

We only ever collect and use personal data of our users to the extent to which this is necessary to provide a fully functional website and our contents and services. The regular collection and use of personal data of our users is only ever made with the user's consent. One exception to this rule applies in cases in which, for factual reasons, it is not possible to obtain the user's prior consent, and the processing of this data is permitted by law. 

2.    Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject to process his or her personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 point a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) shall serve as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.
Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 point b of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis for the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party. This shall also apply to processing necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 point c of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis.
Should it be necessary to process personal data in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 point d of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis.
Should processing be necessary to protect the legitimate interests of our company or a third party and such interests are not overridden by the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, then Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 point f of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis for processing. 

3.    Data erasure and storage period

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for which it has been saved ceases to apply. Further, data may also be stored if provided for by European or national legislators in Union directives, laws or other regulations, to which the data controller is subject. The data will also be deleted or blocked at such time as the storage period prescribed by the designated standards expires, unless it is necessary for the data to be stored for a further period for the conclusion or performance of a contract.

IV.    Provision of the Website and Creation of Log Files

1.    Description and extent of data processing

Every time our website is accessed, our system automatically acquires data and information from the computer system of the calling computer. 

The following data is collected:

(1)    The user's IP address
(2)    Date and time of access. 

The data is also stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored with other personal data of the user.

2.    Legal basis for data processing

Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 point f of the GDPR is the legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the log files.

3.    Purpose of data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary in order to be able to deliver the website to the user's computer. To this end, the user's IP address must be stored for the duration of the session. 

Data is stored in log files to ensure that the website functions properly. In addition, the data serves to optimise the website and to guarantee the security of our IT systems. No data evaluation is carried out for marketing purposes in this context. 

These purposes are also in our legitimate interests in data processing under Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 point f of the GDPR.

4.    Storage duration

Data is deleted as soon as it is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of data being collected in order to make the website available, this is the case when the session is terminated. 

In the case of data stored in log files, this is the case after a maximum of seven days. Storage beyond this point in time is possible. In this case, the user's IP address will be deleted or distorted, so that it can no longer be attributed to the accessing client.

5.    Right to object and right of elimination

Data acquisition is essential for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is essential for operating the website. The user therefore has no right to object. 

V.    Use of Cookies

The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies for analysis purposes, provided the user's consent for this purpose has been obtained, is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 point a of the GDPR.

3.     Purpose of data processing

The purpose of using technically necessary cookies is to simplify the use of the website for the user. Some of our website functions cannot be offered without the use of cookies. For these, it is necessary for the browser to be recognised after changing from one page to another.

The user data collected by technically necessary cookies are not used to create user profiles.

This can also be done automatically. If cookies for our website are deactivated, there may be some website functions that it is no longer possible to use to the full. 

VI.    Job Applications via Email

As part of our recruitment process, we collect and process personal data relating to job applicants. We are committed to being transparent about how we collect and use this data and to meeting our data protection obligations.

1.    Description and extent of data processing

On our website, we offer the list of open positions and you can email Careers@edag.co.uk  to make an application. The following data is collected during the recruitment process:

(1)    your name, address and contact details, including email address and telephone number;
(2)    details of your qualifications, skills, experience and employment history;
(3)    information about your current level of remuneration, including benefit entitlements;
(4)    whether or not you have a disability for which we need to make reasonable adjustments during the recruitment process;
(5)    information about your entitlement to work in the UK; and
(6)    equal opportunities monitoring information, including information about your ethnic origin, sexual orientation, health, and religion or belief.

We collect this information in a variety of ways. For example, data might be contained in application forms, CVs or resumes, obtained from your passport or other identity documents, or collected through interviews or other forms of assessment.

We will also collect personal data about you from third parties, for instance in the form of references supplied by former employers, information from employment background check providers and information from criminal records checks. We will seek information from third parties only once we have made you a job offer, and will inform you that we are doing so.

2.    Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the processing of data, provided the job applicant's consent has been obtained, is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 point a of the GDPR.

3.    Purpose of data processing

The job applicants must submit their CV in order to make an application for employment.

We need to process data to take steps with your consent prior to entering into a contract with you. We also need to process your data to enter into a contract with you.

In some cases, we need to process data to ensure that we are complying with legal obligations. For example, it is necessary to check a successful applicant's eligibility to work in the UK before employment starts.

We have a legitimate interest in processing personal data during the recruitment process and for keeping records of the process. Processing data from job applicants allows us to manage the recruitment process, assess and confirm a candidate's suitability for employment and decide to whom to offer a job. We may also need to process data from job applicants to respond to and defend against legal claims.

We process health information to ascertain whether we need to make reasonable adjustments to the recruitment process for candidates who have a disability. This is to carry out our obligations and exercise specific rights in relation to employment.

Where we process other special categories of data, such as information about ethnic origin, sexual orientation, health or religion or belief, this is for equal opportunities monitoring purposes.

If your application is unsuccessful, we will keep your personal data on file in case there are future employment opportunities for which you may be suited. We will ask for your consent before keeping your data for this purpose and you are free to withdraw your consent at any time.

4.    Storage duration

If your application for employment is unsuccessful, we will hold your data on file for 3 months after the end of the relevant recruitment process. If you agree to allow us to keep your personal data on file, we will hold your data on file for a further 12 months for consideration for future employment opportunities. At the end of that period or once you withdraw your consent, your data will be deleted or destroyed. 

If your application for employment is successful, personal data gathered during the recruitment process will be transferred to your personnel file and retained during your employment, contractor relationship or internship. The period for which your data is held after the end of employment, contractor relationship or internship is 5 years.

5.    Right to object and right of elimination

The job applicant has the right to withdraw his or her consent to the processing of the personal data at any time. If the job applicant contacts us by e-mail, he or she can object to the storage of his or her personal data at any time. If this is the case, then the application cannot be continued.

In this case, all personal data collected during our recruitment process will then be deleted.

IX.    Integration of Google Maps

1.    Description and extent of data processing

We use the Google Maps service on this website. This enables us to display interactive maps directly on the website, making it easy and convenient for you to use the map function.

Should you visit the website, Google receives the information that you have activated the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, the following data is transmitted:

(1)    IP address of the accessing computer
(2)    Date and time of enquiry

This happens regardless of whether or not Google has provided a user account by means of which you have logged on. If you have logged on to Google, your data is assigned directly to your account. If you do not wish the data to be assigned to your profile with Google, you must log out before clicking on the link. 

Further, depending on what settings the user has made, it is even possible for Google to collect location data. However, your consent to such data being used is always necessary, and you can refuse to let Google have this in your response to the query. 

Further information concerning the purpose and scope of data acquisition and its processing by the plugin provider can be found in the provider's data privacy statements, where you will also find additional information on your rights in this respect and setting options to protect your private sphere. https://www.google.de/intl/en/policies/privacy

4.    Storage duration

We have no influence on the data collected and data processing operations, nor do we know the full extent of data acquisition, the purposes for which it is processed, or storage periods. Likewise, we have no information regarding the deletion by Google of any data collected.

5.    Right to object and right of elimination

To prevent data from being assigned to an existing profile with Google, log out before activating the link. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and to exercise this right, you must contact Google.

In this context, you may ask for information on appropriate guarantees in accordance with Art. 46 of the GDPR relating to the transmission of data.

2.    Right to correction

You have a right to have the controller correct or complete any personal data concerning you which, having been processed, is either incorrect or incomplete. The data controller must carry out any corrections without undue delay.

3.    Right to restrict processing

Subject to the following conditions, you can request that processing of the personal data concerning you be restricted:

(1)    If you dispute the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period which allows the controller to check the accuracy of the personal data;
(2)    the processing is unlawful and you refuse deletion of the personal data, instead requesting that use of the personal data be restricted;

If restriction of the processing has been restricted under the above-mentioned conditions, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.

4.    Right to deletion

a)    Obligation to delete
You can ask the controller to delete the personal data concerning you without undue delay, and the controller is obliged to delete this data without delay if one of the following reasons applies:
(1)    The personal data concerning you is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
(2)    You revoke your consent, which served as the basis for processing in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a or Art. 9 para. 2 point a of the GDPR, and there is no other legal basis for the processing. 
(3)    You file an objection to processing in accordance with Art. 21 para. 1 of the GDPR, and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or you file an objection to processing in accordance with Art. 21 para. 2 of the GDPR.

c)    Exceptions
The data subject does not have the right to have his or her data deleted if processing is necessary
(1)    to exercise the rights to freedom of expression and freedom of information;
(2)    to comply with a legal obligation calling for processing on the basis of Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject, or to perform a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
(3)    for reasons of public interest in the field of public health in accordance with Art. 9 para. 2 points h and i and Art. 9 para. 3 of the GDPR;
(4)    for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes in accordance with Art. 89 para. 1 of the GDPR, insofar as the right set out in section a) is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the purposes of this processing, or
(5)    to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.

5.    Right to information

If you have exercised your right to have the controller correct, delete or restrict the processing of your data, then the controller is obliged to inform all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you has been disclosed of such correction or deletion of the data or restriction of the processing, unless it proves impossible to do so or would involve unreasonable expense and effort.
You are entitled to have the controller inform you of these recipients.

6.    Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you with which you have provided the controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. Further, you have the right to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data was provided 
(1)    the processing is based on consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 point a of the GDPR or Art. 9 para. 2 point a of GDPR or on a contract in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 point b of the GDPR, and
(2)    the processing is carried out by automated means.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to have the personal data concerning you transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible. This shall not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
The right to data portability does not apply to processing of personal data for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

7.    Right to object

You have the right, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you which is based on Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 point e or f of the GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. 

The controller will no longer process the personal data concerning you unless the controller can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.

If personal data concerning you is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing purposes; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.

Should you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for such purposes.
In the context of the use of information society services – notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EG – you are entitled to exercise your right to object by automated means using technical specifications.

8.    Right to withdraw declaration of consent under data protection law

You have the right to withdraw your declaration of consent to the processing of personal data at any time. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on your consent before its withdrawal.

9.    Automated individual decision-making, including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing - including profiling - which produces legal effects that concern you or significantly affects in a similar way. This does not apply if the decision

(1)    is necessary for entering into or the performance of a contract between you and the data controller,
(2)    is authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, or
(3)    is made with your explicit consent.

These decisions must not, however, be based on special categories of personal data referred to in Art. 9 para. 1 of the GDPR, unless Art. 9 para. 2 point a or g applies, and suitable measures have been undertaken to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.

With regard to the cases described in points (1) and (3), data controller will implement suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR. 

The supervisory authority with which the complaint has been lodged will inform the complainant on the progress and the outcome of the complaint including the possibility of a judicial remedy in accordance with Art. 78 of the GDPR.
