The collection and use of personal data of our users is regularly only carried out with the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases where it is not possible to obtain prior consent for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.

2) Provision of the website and creation of log files
When you use our website, we collect data that your browser transmits to our server (so-called “server log files”). When you visit our website, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary for us to display the website to you:

Source/reference from which you reached the page
Operating system used
IP address used (in anonymized form)
When using these data and information, the Flintermann Glasveredelungs GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Also, the data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject. The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website. The data is not passed on or used in any other way. However, we reserve the right to check the server log files retrospectively should concrete indications point to illegal use.
In part, the cookies serve to simplify the visit to the website by storing settings. If personal data is also processed by individual cookies implemented by us, the processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO either for the execution of the contract or in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO to protect our legitimate interests in the best possible functionality of the website as well as a customer-friendly and effective design of the site visit.

This data is stored and used exclusively for the purpose of responding to your request or for contacting you and the associated technical administration. The legal basis for processing the data is our legitimate interest in responding to your request pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. If your contact aims at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO. Your data will be deleted after final processing of your request, this is the case if it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter concerned has been conclusively clarified and provided that there are no legal storage obligations to the contrary. As a matter of principle, this data will not be passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to pass it on or the passing on serves the purpose of criminal prosecution.

5) Application procedure
Applicants can send us their applications via e-mail. However, please note that e-mails are generally not sent in encrypted form and applicants must ensure encryption themselves. We can therefore accept no responsibility for the transmission path of the application between the sender and receipt on our server. Instead of applying by e-mail, applicants still have the option of sending us their application by post.
In the event of a successful application, the data provided by the applicants will be processed and stored by us for the purpose of handling the employment relationship.
If the application is not successful, the applicants’ data will be deleted. Applicants’ data will also be deleted if an application is withdrawn, which applicants are entitled to do at any time. Subject to a justified withdrawal by the applicants, the deletion will take place after the expiry of a period of six months so that we can answer any follow-up questions about the application and satisfy our obligations to provide evidence under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

This website uses plugins from Vimeo. This is operated by Vimeo Inc, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA. This is a software for playing videos.
When you visit one of our pages equipped with a Vimeo plugin, a connection to the Vimeo servers is established. In doing so, the Vimeo server is informed which of our pages you have visited. In addition, your IP address is recorded by Vimeo. This also applies if you are not logged in to Vimeo or do not have an account with Vimeo. The information collected by Vimeo is transmitted to the Vimeo server in the USA.

Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are small text files placed on your computer system, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including the shortened IP address) is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
This website uses Google Analytics exclusively with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”, which ensures anonymization of the IP address by shortening it and excludes direct personal reference. Through the extension, your IP address is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. In these exceptional cases, this processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behavior for optimization and marketing purposes.
On our behalf, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing us with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

This site uses Google Web Fonts offered by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”) for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.
For this purpose, the browser you use must connect to Google’s servers. This informs Google that our website has been accessed via your IP address. Google Web Fonts are used in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offer. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. If your browser does not support Google Web Fonts, a standard font from your computer will be used.

The provider of this site has no influence on this data transmission. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether there is no user account. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not want the assignment with your profile at Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and evaluates them. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit.f DSGVO on the basis of Google’s legitimate interests in the insertion of personalized advertising, market research and/or needs-based design of its website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right.
