Edscha welcomes your visit to our website and your interest in our company and products. We take the protection of your private data seriously and want you to feel comfortable when visiting our Internet pages. Safeguarding your privacy when processing personal data is a key concern for us and one which we address in our business processes. We process personal data collected on visits to our website in accordance with data protection rules in the country where the party responsible for the data processing is situated. Our data protection policy is also governed by the rules on data privacy management applicable to Edscha.
Collection and processing of personal data
When you visit our website it is standard practice for our webservers to save a range of general information and data. This general information and data are stored in the server’s log files. It is possible to determine the browser types and versions used, the operating system used by the accessing system, the website from which an accessing system arrives at our website (so-called ‘referrer’), the sub-websites which are driven towards our website via an accessing system, the time and date that the website is accessed, an Internet protocol address (IP address), the
accessing system’s Internet service provider and other similar information and data which serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our IT Systems.
When using this general information and data Edscha does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. This information is simply used to deliver the content of our website correctly, to optimise the content of our website, to ensure the permanent functionality of our IT systems and our website technology as well as to enable the provision of essential information to law enforcement agencies in the event of a cyber attack. This anonymously gathered information and data is therefore evaluated by Edscha, firstly for statistical purposes and secondly with the aim of increasing data privacy and protection within our business so as to ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for personal data processed by us. The anonymous data on server log files is stored separately from all personal data input by a particular person.
Personal data is only saved if you voluntarily give us permission to do so, e.g. in the course of a recruitment process or in a request for
information by email. Personal data obtained from you is used only for the purpose for which you provide us with the data.
Except where otherwise provided by law we save personal data for as long as necessary in order to achieve its purpose (e.g. the recruitment process), for as long as you want or for as long as you have given your consent. It is not gathered, processed or used for any other purpose.
Edscha uses technical and organisational measures to ensure that your data that we hold is safeguarded from manipulation, loss, destruction and access by unauthorised persons. Our security measures are regularly improved in line with technological developments. However, data transmission over the Internet may have security vulnerability so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason anybody is also free to communicate personal data to us by other means – by phone, for example.
Our Internet offering may contain links to external third-party websites with content over which we have no control. We cannot therefore
assume any liability for such content. Liability for the content of linked sites always lies with the respective provider or operator of the website. Linked sites have been checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking. No unlawful content has been found at the time of linking. It would be unreasonable, however, to expect the content of linked sites to be permanently monitored without any specific indication of a violation. We will promptly remove such links on being notified of violations.
Right to information
Edscha will, on request, promptly inform you in writing in accordance with the law as to what personal data, if any, is held by us about you. If incorrect information should be held by us despite our efforts to ensure that data is accurate and up-to-date we will correct it at your request.
You are also entitled to have your personal data blocked and deleted unless there should be a statutory obligation to retain it.
