§ 2 Your rights
(1) My rights as a data subject
You can request information on the data stored on you (Art. 15 GDPR) using the above contact details. Additionally, you can request rectification where we have stored inaccurate data relating to you (Art. 16 GDPR). Under certain conditions, you can also request the erasure of your data (Art. 17 GDPR) or exercise your right to object (Art. 21 GDPR). You also have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data (Art. 18 GDPR) and the right to receive the data that you have provided (Art. 20 GDPR). The restrictions under Articles 34 and 35 GDPR apply to the right of access and the right to erasure.
If you believe that the processing of your personal data contravenes the requirements if the General Data Protection Regulation, you have the right to contact your respective regulatory authority for data protection (Article 77 GDPR in conjunction with s. 19 BDSG). For Baden-Württemberg, this is the State Agency for Data Protection and Information Freedom (Landesbeauftragte für den Datenschutz und die Informationsfreiheit), Königstrasse 10 a, 70173 Stuttgart.
(2) Objection to/withdrawal of consent to the processing of your data
If you have given your consent to the processing of your data, you can withdraw this consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent affects the lawfulness of the processing of your personal data after you have notified us of the withdrawal.
Insofar as we have based the processing of your personal data on the balance of interests, you can object to the processing. This is the case where, in particular, processing is not necessary to perform a contract with you, as we have outlined in the following description of the respective functions. If you choose to exercise your right to object, please state the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we have been doing so far. If your objection is justified, we will examine the situation and will either stop processing your data, or adapt the manner in which we do so, or state our compelling legitimate reasons for continuing to process your data.
Of course you can refuse the processing of your personal data for advertising and data analysis purposes at any time. You can advise us of your refusal of advertising via the following contact details: Isoloc Schwingungstechnik GmbH, Motorstrasse 64, D-70499 Stuttgart or by email to info(at)isoloc.com
(3) Who has access to my data?
Unless otherwise provided for in the detailed descriptions of our services, those units within our company that need your data to fulfill our contractual and statutory obligations will have access to it. We will only disclose information relating to you where statutory duties to provide information require us to do so, where you have given your consent and/or where the disclosure is legitimate under another legal basis.
Where we engage the services of contracted service providers for specific functions of our website, these providers are carefully selected and commissioned by us, are bound by our instructions and monitored on a regular basis.
If we would like to use your data for marketing purposes, we have set out in detail below how these processes operate.
(4) How long is my data stored?
Unless otherwise provided for in the detailed descriptions of our services, we process and store your personal data as long as is necessary to fulfill our contractual and statutory obligations.
Your personal data is periodically deleted or blocked where it is no longer required to fulfill contractual or statutory obligations, you have exercised your right to erasure, all reciprocal claims have been settled, and no other statutory retention obligations or legal bases for storing the data exist.
§ 3 Collection of personal data when you visit our website
(1) Use of server log files
Each time a data subject or an automated system accesses our website, a series of general data and information is collected in log files. This includes an Internet protocol address (IP address), the browser types and versions used, the website from which the accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), the sub-pages on our website accessed by the accessing system, date and time of the access to our website, and other similar data and information for risk prevention purposes in case of attacks on our IT systems.
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR in connection with the aforementioned legitimate interests.
Temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to ensure that the website is transmitted to the user’s computer. In this case, 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. The data also helps us to optimize the website and ensure the security of our IT systems. This also forms the basis for our legitimate interest in the data processing pursuant to Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR. The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. Where data is collected to provide the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended. The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is necessary to operate the website. The log files may also be inspected where, on the basis of specific indications, there is legitimate reason to suspect illegal use or a specific attack on our website. Here, our legitimate interest in the processing lies in identifying and prosecuting the individuals behind such attacks or illegal use.
In addition to the data set out above, cookies are stored on your computer when you use our website. Cookies are small text files that are assigned to your browser and stored on your hard drive, and by means of which specific information is transmitted to the body setting the cookie (in this case, us). Cookies cannot run programs or transmit viruses to your computer. Their purpose is to make the website more user-friendly and more efficient as a whole.
This website uses the following types of cookies. Their scope and function are set out below:
Transient cookies: Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. This includes session cookies in particular. These store a so-called session ID, which is used to assign various requests from your browser to the same session. This allows your computer to be recognized when you return to our website. Session cookies are deleted when you log out or close your browser.
Persistent cookies: These are deleted automatically after a specified time, which may vary depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies at any time in the security settings of your browser.
(3) Data protection conditions on the deployment and use of Web Fonts
This page uses so-called Web Fonts, which are provided by Google, for the uniform representation of fonts. When accessing a page, your browser loads the required Web Fonts to your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.
To this end, the browser connection used by you must connect to the servers of Google. As a result of this, Google learns that our website was accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and attractive representation of our online offers. This represents a justified interest as defined in Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.
If your browser does not support Web Fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.
§ 4 Other functions and services of our website
Besides the purely informational use of our website, we also offer various services which you can use if interested. You will generally be asked to provide further personal data in this case, which we will use to provide the respective service. The above data processing principles apply to the personal data provided.
(1) Using the contact options
We provide a contact form, which can be used to contact us electronically, on our website. The data entered by the user on this form is transmitted to us and stored. This includes the following required fields:e-mail address and your message. All other details are voluntary and not required. Before the contact form is transmitted, we obtain your consent to the processing of your data and refer you to this Data Protection Policy. Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR provides the legal basis for the processing of data using the contact form.
There is another contact form for electronic contacts, which can be used for questions about the installation of one or more machines by the questioner. The data entered by the user for this is transmitted to us and saved. This includes company name, name, street, post code and city, telephone number and your email address are mandatory fields, all other details are voluntary and help us to answer your query as well as possible. Within the framework of the sending process, your consent is obtained for the processing of your data and this data protection declaration is referred to. Legal basis for processing the data when using the other contact form is therefore Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR.
Alternatively, you can contact us using the e-mail address provided. In such cases, we store the personal data of the user that is transmitted in the e-mail. The data is used solely for the ongoing dialogue with you and will not be shared with third parties. We have a legitimate interest in processing the personal data transmitted in an e-mail under Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR.
Where the purpose of the e-mail contact is to conclude a contract, Art. 6 (1) b) GDPR applies additionally to steps taken prior to entering into a contract and, where applicable, for subsequent processing in order to perform a contract.
We only store personal data that is processed by us within the context of a general request sent via the contact form or in an e-mail until such time as our dialogue has ended. The dialogue is deemed to have ended when it can be seen from the circumstances that the issue in question has been conclusively resolved.
Consent to the processing of your personal data can be withdrawn at any time. If you contact us by e-mail, you can, of course, also object at any time to the storage of your personal data. In such cases, we will not be able to continue the dialogue with you.
(2) Collection and use of personal data in the course of a job application procedure
Ensuring the highest possible level of protection for your personal data in the application process is important to us. All personal data that is collected and processed by us as part of an application is protected against unauthorized access and manipulation by technical and organizational measures.
We process personal data of applicants such as name, contact details, CV, nationality, work permit etc. for selection and appointment purposes with the objective of filling posts in the company during application of interested parties.
The legal grounds for processing of your personal data constitute justification, appointment and termination of contractual relationships pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. b, compliance with legal obligations pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. c and also your consent expressed by voluntary submission of data not necessarily needed for the purpose (e.g. hobbies in the CV).
Additionally, data is processed on the basis of our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR:
- To optimize our application processes
- To ensure observance of compliance regulations, industry standards, and contractual obligations
- To establish, exercise, or defend legal claims, and
- To prevent damage to and/or liability on the part of our company by adopting appropriate measures
Your data is deleted once it is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was collected; it will, however, be retained for as long as is necessary to defend legal claims or against accusations under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG). This is usually 6 months. Particularly interesting applicants to whom we are unable to offer a position at that point in time are asked to provide separate consent so that their data can be retained for a longer period (usually one year). Where accounting-related processing takes place, for example the reimbursement of travel expenses, the data required for this is deleted in accordance with the statutory retention periods, which are usually 6 or 10 years.
If the application is successful and we are able to offer you a contract of employment within our company, we will transfer the data collected during the application process to our personnel files.
(3) ISOLOC Account for using the download area
On our website you have the opportunity to set up a personal account for the download area. To set up your personal account, we collect and save your forename and surname, company, address, state, post code, telephone number and email address. In addition, we need a freely selected password to set up your customer account. The email address entered by you simultaneously serves as the user name for the customer account. The consent for registration is saved using the Double-Opt-In method. After registering, our system sends you an email with an activation link, with which you confirm the creation of your customer account. In this way we guarantee that you actually are the holder of the entered email address and that you consent to the creation of the customer account. Your customer account is only activated after confirmation through the use of the activation link. If you do not perform your respective confirmation within [24 hours], your registration is automatically deleted from our database. The input of the data named above is mandatory, you can provide all other information voluntarily through the use of our portal. Legal basis for processing the data when using the customer account is therefore Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR.
If you want to delete your customer account, please contact Datenschutz(at)isoloc.com or by post to Isoloc Schwingungstechnik GmbH, Datenschutz, Motorstrasse 64, D-70499 Stuttgart..

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website activity and Internet usage.
Your IP address transmitted by your browser will not be associated by Google with any other data during the use of Google Analytics.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by configuring your browser settings accordingly.

This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. This means that IP addresses are only processed in truncated form, meaning that they cannot be related to a specific individual. Any possibility of relating the data collected on you to you personally is immediately excluded, and the personal data is deleted immediately.
We use Google Analytics to analyze the use of our website and in order to make regular improvements.

§ 6 Use of social media
(1) Social media plug-ins
We have no influence on the data collected or the manner in which it is processed, nor are we aware of the full scope of the data collection, the purposes of the processing or the storage periods. We also have no information about the deletion of the collected data by the plug-in provider.
The plug-in provider stores the collected data relating to you in the form of user profiles and uses these for the purpose of advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even if users are not logged in) in order to display appropriate ads 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; however, you must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right. We use this plug-in to enable you to interact with the social media networks and other users so that we can improve our online presence and make the content more interesting for you as the user. The legal basis for the use of plug-ins is Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR.
The data is transmitted regardless of whether or not you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged into it. If you are logged into the plug-in provider, the data relating to you collected by us is directly assigned to your account with the plug-in provider. If you click the activated button and, for example, link the page, the plug-in provider also stores this information in your user account and shares it publicly with your contacts. We recommend that you routinely log out after using any social media network, and in particular before activating the button, as this prevents the plug-in provider from linking this data to your profile.
Further information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and processing by the plug-in provider can be found in the providers’ privacy policies listed below. These policies also contain further information on your rights in this context and the settings to protect your privacy.
