Data privacy policy

Data protection statement

Thank you for visiting our job portal and for your interest in Roto Frank AG and our services. We want you feel safe and secure as you visit our website, so protecting your personal data and keeping it confidential is something we take very seriously indeed.
The following information about data protection sets out what data we store and when, and what we use it for – subject, of course, to the applicable data protection rules.
If you have any more questions about how we use your personal data, please get in touch with our data protection officers using the contact details below.
Our data protection information may change due to constant technological development, changes to our services or the legal situation, or for other reasons. We therefore reserve the right to change this data protection statement at any time, so please check back regularly for the up-to-date version.

Basic information

Unless otherwise indicated in the following sections, we never collect, process or use personal data when you use our website.
If you access our Internet pages, our web servers automatically obtain information of a general kind. This includes the web browser type, the operating system used, the domain name of the Internet service provider, the IP address of the computer used, the website you are visiting us from, the pages you visit on our site, and the date and duration of the visit.
It is not possible for us to use this data to identify individual users. The information undergoes statistical analysis only, and is used exclusively to improve the appeal, the content and the functionality of our website.

The concept of personal data

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) defines personal data as follows:
Any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person ('data subject'); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

Legal basis for the collection and processing of personal data:

The collection, processing and use of applicant data for the application process in our application portal HR4You is in the legitimate interest of Roto Frank AG as described in point (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR. This interest is not overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the applicant.
Erasure of data and storage period:
Unless you have given your explicit consent to store your personal applicant data in our applicant pool as part of the application process, the data is retained for evidence purposes for six months after the end of the application, after which it is erased. Other storage periods only apply only other archiving rules apply under tax laws or other laws. In this case, the relevant data is not erased until the end of the statutory period.

Collecting and processing personal data

So that we can process your application, we need to collect certain personal information. Beyond the extent which is legally required or permitted, any personal information we collect will only be used for the purpose of processing your application. Any further use of your data will only take place if we have obtained your explicit consent in advance. You can withdraw consent for future use from Roto Frank AG at any time.
We ask you for certain information in our application portal. Mandatory information is marked as such and is only requested if it is absolutely necessary in order to assess an applicant's suitability for a vacant position.
The purpose of the optional field "How did you find us?" is to determine which job portals most of our applications come from so we can decide where to place ads in future.
The data you enter is not sent to our servers until you click the "Save/Send" button. Before then, you can make changes to the information you have entered.

Data transfer to affiliated companies

Your data will not be transferred to third parties outside the Roto Group unless we are legally required to do so or the transfer is necessary in order to complete the contract between us or you have given your explicit consent to the transfer in advance.

Data transfer to external service providers (processors)

You data will only be transferred to service partners if they are acting on our behalf and they support the Roto Group in the provision of its services.
Processing of your personal data by engaged service providers is governed by Article 28 of the GDPR.
Such service providers only have access to the personal information they need in order to perform the tasks in question. The service providers are not allowed to pass on your personal information or use it for any other purpose, in particular for their own marketing purposes.
Where external service providers are able to access your personal data, we ensure through legal, technical and organisational measures and through regular inspections that they too comply with the applicable data protection rules.
Your personal data will not be passed to other companies for commercial purposes.

Website optimisation tools

When we collect personal data via website optimisation tools, we do so on the basis of our legitimate interest as stated in point (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR and Recital 47. Under these provisions, direct marketing generally constitutes a legitimate interest. Your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms do not override our marketing interest because our data protection statement contains extensive information about data collection and because you can opt out at any time (via a link or browser settings). In addition, we only use pseudonymous tracking.

Rights of data subjects
