If you have any questions about data protection at Ernsting´s family, you can contact our company data protection officer at any time. They can be reached at the above postal address and by email at service-datenschutz@ernstings-family.com. Please be advised that when this email address is used, our data protection officer is not the only person who will take note of the contents. If you wish to exchange confidential information only with our data protection officer, please request a direct contact first via this email address.

What data are processed while the user is just visiting?

When you visit our Websites or enter data, personal data are processed.

“Personal data” means information about personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person. This primarily includes information that allows direct conclusions to be drawn about your identity, such as your name, your telephone number, your postal or email address.

If you merely browse our Websites without interacting with them or entering data, we collect only the data that your browser transfers to enable you to visit the Websites (known as “connection data”). This is a necessary technical process. These connection data comprise the HTTP header information, including the user agent, and particularly include:

  • IP address; 
  • method (e.g. GET, POST), as well as date and time of the request;
  • address of the requested Website and path of the requested file;
  • if applicable, the previously accessed Website/file (HTTP referrer);
  • information about the browser and operating system used;
  • version of the HTTP, HTTP status code, and size of the delivered file;
  • request information such as language, type of content, encoding of content, character sets;
  • time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). 

These connection data must be processed to enable the visit of the Websites, to ensure the long-term functionality and security of our systems, and for the general administrative maintenance of our Websites. The connection data are also stored in internal log files for the purposes described above, temporarily and limited to the most necessary content, in order to find the cause of and take action against repeated accesses, or those performed with criminal intent, that may endanger the stability and security of our Websites.

We analyse the data in the corresponding log files in anonymised form to improve our Websites, make them more user-friendly, and find and rectify errors more quickly. They are also used to control server capacities so corresponding data volumes can be provided when required.

Log files are erased or anonymised after seven days at the latest.

The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR, insofar as the page is accessed when initiating or performing a contract, and otherwise Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR due to our legitimate interest in enabling website access and the permanent functionality and security of our systems. However, the automatic transmission of the connection data and the log files developed from it do not constitute access to the information in the end device within the meaning of the implementation laws of the ePrivacy Directive of the EU member states, in Germany § 25 TTDSG. Otherwise, however, it would be absolutely necessary anyway.

What data can I enter?

In addition to using our Websites purely for informative purposes, you may contact us in various ways – by contact form, email, telephone, or post.

The data collected in the process (depending on the type of contact you choose, these include your first and last name, your email address, your address, your telephone numbers, the date and time of your enquiry, and the content of your request) are used only to communicate with you.

We generally base the processing of your data on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is the effective processing of the enquiries addressed to us and, if necessary, the initiation or performance of business relationships. If the contact is aimed at entering into a contract, or if the contact is made in the context of a contract to which you are a party, the legal basis for the processing of personal data is Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR.

If your data are no longer required for the processing and handling of your enquiry because your request has been dealt with, your request has been clarified, and there are no statutory retention obligations or a legitimate interest in further retention, we shall routinely erase your data.

What applies to press enquiries?

In our newsroom, press representatives have the opportunity to contact our PR team. Personal data from press enquiries (in particular email address, last name, first name and other contact details, institution, department/editorial office/function/position as well as the request and related correspondence) that we receive by email or post are stored and processed for the purpose of handling the press enquiry. If we receive press enquiries, a ticket/record is created in our electronic case/filing system. The tickets are stored for three years.

A ticket is also created in our electronic case system if we receive telephone press enquiries. We are not required to provide personal data if we receive press enquiries. However, we can only respond to press enquiries if we are able to contact the enquirers.

Representatives of the press also have the opportunity to register for our press mailing list. For this purpose, we process their last name, first name, email address, institution department/editorial office/function/position. Press material is sent to the press distribution list by email to the address provided.

Press representatives can register for our Brand Hub on request. There, journalists can find information on the design elements of our brand (information on the correct logo placement, the correct use of our corporate typeface, etc.). Access data for our Brand Hub can be requested from our marketing department. For this purpose, we process your last name, first name and email address.

Personal data processed in connection with the press mailing list or registration for our Brand Hub will be stored until an objection to this is raised. An informal email to service-datenschutz@ernstings-family.com is sufficient for an objection.

We base the processing of the data on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is the effective processing of press enquiries addressed to us as well as effective PR and public relations work.

What applies to applications?

If you would like to apply to work for us via our careers page or the online application form available there, via email, or by post, we require and process the following data from you so we can process your application:

  • title,
  • first name and last name,
  • email address,
  • telephone number,
  • application documents (cover letter, CV, certificates).

In order to process your application, we therefore process the personal data that you have provided to us, e.g. via the online application form or by email with your application. Except for the mandatory fields marked with an asterisk in our online application form, you decide which data you would like to enter and share with us. To make your application as easy as possible, we have deliberately kept our application form short. So please send us only the documents you consider to be the most important. If we need any further documents, we will contact you again. In addition, we may search for and view applicants' professional profiles on the internet.

Your data will be transferred to our HR department in encrypted form and used exclusively for the purpose of the application process. This also includes the use of those data to contact you. We must process your data to review your application and, if successful, to enter into an employment contract with you. The legal basis for processing your data in this respect is Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR and Art. 88 GDPR in conjunction with Section 26 (1) sentence 1 BDSG. You are not legally required to provide your data for this purpose. However, if you do not wish to provide the aforementioned data necessary for an application to us, we may not be able to consider your application or it may not be successful.

For applicant management, we use HR software which we host ourselves on our own servers. Accordingly, no data are transferred to the software provider.

When will my data be erased?

In principle, we store personal data only as long as necessary to fulfil contractual or legal obligations for which we have collected such data. We will then erase the data without undue delay, unless we still need the data until the end of the statutory limitation period for evidence purposes for (imminent) court proceedings or due to statutory retention obligations.

If we reject your application, we will store your application data for a maximum of six month after that rejection unless you give us your consent to store it for a longer period. If you have given us your separate consent in accordance with Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR, we will store your data transferred as part of the application in our applicant pool for up to six month after the end of the application process in order to identify any other interesting positions for you and to contact you again if necessary. The data will be erased after this period has expired. You can withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future.

To whom is data forwarded?

The data collected by Ernsting´s family will only be shared with third parties if this is necessary for the performance of the contract, for the provision of the Websites’ technical functionality, or if another legal basis for sharing the data exists. Service providers may use the data shared with them only to fulfil their task. We selected those service providers carefully and commissioned them in writing. They are bound by our instructions, and we monitor them regularly. Any other use of the information is forbidden, and none of our authorised service providers use them in such a manner. Moreover, data might be shared in connection with official enquiries, court orders, or legal proceedings if this is necessary for legal prosecution or enforcement.

What are my rights?

You have the right of access information about the processing of your personal data by us at any time. In this context, we will explain the data processing to you and provide you with an overview of the data stored about you. If data stored by us are incorrect or no longer up to date, you have the right to have those data rectified. You may also request the erasure of your data. If, in exceptional cases, erasure is not possible due to other legal provisions, the data will be blocked – provided the necessary requirements are met – so that they are only available for this legal purpose. You may also have the processing of your personal data restricted (if you dispute the accuracy of the data, for example). Under certain conditions, you also have the right to data portability, which means we will send you a digital copy of the personal data you have provided on request.

To assert your rights described here, you may contact us at any time using the contact details above. This also applies if you wish to receive copies of safeguards demonstrating an adequate level of data protection. 

Your requests to assert your data protection rights and our responses to them will be stored for documentation purposes for up to three years (unless longer retention period is necessary for asserting, exercising and defending legal claims). The legal basis is Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, based on our interest in the defence against possible civil law claims pursuant to Art. 82 GDPR, the avoidance of administrative fines pursuant to Art. 83 GDPR, and the fulfilment of our accountability obligation under Art. 5 GDPR.

Once you have given us consent, you may withdraw it at any time. If you withdraw consent, we shall discontinue the data processing based on that consent for the future. The withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

If we process your data based on legitimate interests, you may object to that processing at any time on grounds relating to your particular situation. If you object to the processing of data for direct marketing purposes, you have a general right to object, which we will implement even if you provide no grounds.

If you wish to exercise your right of withdrawal or objection, it is sufficient to send an informal message to the contact details above.

Finally, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority. You may exercise this right, for example, before a supervisory authority in the member state of your residence, workplace or the place of the alleged infringement. The competent supervisory authority in North Rhine-Westphalia is The State Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information of North Rhine-Westphalia, P.O. Box 20 04 44, 40102 Düsseldorf.

What about cookies?

On our Websites, we use various services and applications (collectively, “Tools”) provided either by us or by third parties. This includes, in particular, Tools that use technologies to store or access information in the end device: These include cookies and other technologies such as web storage and JavaScript:

  • Cookies: information stored on the end device, consisting in particular of a name, a value, the storing domain, and an expiry date. Session cookies (such as “Apache”, “deviceType”, and “JSESSIONID”) will be erased after the session, while persistent cookies will be erased after the specified expiry date. Cookies may also be removed manually.
  • Web storage (local storage/session storage): information stored on the end device, consisting of a name and a value. Information in the session storage will be erased after the session, but information in the local storage has no expiry date and basically remains stored unless a mechanism for their erasure has been set up (such as local storage with time entry). Information in the local and session storage may also be removed manually.
  • JavaScript: programming codes (scripts) embedded in or called up from the website which, for example, set cookies and web storage or actively collect information from the end device or about the visitors’ usage behaviour. JavaScript may be blocked by a browser setting, although blocking it will render most services nonfunctional.

Most browsers are set by default to accept cookies, execute scripts, and display graphics. However, you may usually adjust your browser settings to reject all or certain cookies or to block scripts and graphics. If you completely block the storage of cookies, the display of graphics, and the execution of scripts, our services will probably not work or not work properly.

What follows will inform you about the Tools we use, especially how the Tools function, the providers, the sharing of data with third parties, and any data transfers to third countries.

Detailed information on the cookies we use can be found in our “Cookie Information”.

Which Tools are used on our Websites?

We use the Tools necessary for Website operation on the basis of our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR to provide the basic functions of our Websites. In certain cases, these Tools may also be necessary for the performance of a contract or in order to take steps prior to entering into a contract, in which case the processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR. Access to and storage of information in the end device is absolutely necessary in these cases and takes place on the basis of the implementation laws of the ePrivacy Directive of the EU member states, in Germany according to § 25 para. 2 TTDSG .

We use all other nonessential (optional) Tools that provide additional functions (YouTube and Google Maps) on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1)(a) GDPR. Access to and storage of information in the end device then takes place on the basis of the implementation laws of the ePrivacy Directive of the EU member states, in Germany according to § 25 para. 2 TTDSG .

If data are transferred to third countries, we shall inform you if an adequacy decision exists for the third country in question or if standard contractual clauses or other safeguards have been entered into or given for the use of certain Tools. (See also the section “Data transfer to third countries” at the end of this Privacy Policy).

How are consents for cookies and Tools obtained?

To obtain and manage your consents, we use a Tool from Commanders Act, a service provided by Fjord Technologies SAS, 3/5 rue Saint-Georges, 75009 Paris, France (“Commanders Act”). This generates a banner informing you about the data processing on our Website and giving you the option to consent to all, some, or no data processing through optional Tools. This banner appears the first time you visit our Website and when you re-access your settings selection to change them or withdraw consents. The banner will also appear on further visits to our Website if you have deactivated the storage of cookies or if the cookies or information in the local storage have been erased or have expired.

Your consent or withdrawal, your IP address, information about your browser, your end device, and the time of your visit are transmitted to Commanders Act during your Website visit. Commanders Act also stores information in cookies (“TCPID”, “TC_PRIVACY”, “TC_PRIVACY_CENTER”, cookie lifetime: 1 year) in order to document your consents and withdrawals.

The data processing is necessary to provide you with the legally required consent management and comply with our documentation obligations. The legal basis is Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR, justified by our interest in fulfilling the legal requirements for consent management. Access to and storage of information in the end device is absolutely necessary in these cases and takes place on the basis of the implementation laws of the ePrivacy Directive of the EU member states, in the Netherlands pursuant to Article 11.7a of the Telecommunications Act.

What other essential cookies and Tools are used?

We use our own essential cookies that access information in the end device or store information on the end device, in particular

  • for load balancing (“AWSALB”, “AWSALBCORS”, cookie lifetime: 7 days),
  • to save your language settings (INSERT COOKIE NAME, COOKIE LIFETIME).

Which Tools are used on our Websites?

We use the Tools necessary for Website operation on the basis of our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR to provide the basic functions of our Websites. In certain cases, these Tools may also be necessary for the performance of a contract or in order to take steps prior to entering into a contract, in which case the processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR. Access to and storage of information in the end device is absolutely necessary in these cases and takes place on the basis of the implementation laws of the ePrivacy Directive of the EU member states, in Germany according to § 25 para. 2 TTDSG .

Access to and storage of information in the end device then takes place on the basis of the implementation laws of the ePrivacy Directive of the EU member states, in Germany according to § 25 para. 2 TTDSG .

If data are transferred to third countries, we shall inform you if an adequacy decision exists for the third country in question or if standard contractual clauses or other safeguards have been entered into or given for the use of certain Tools. (See also the section “Data transfer to third countries” at the end of this Privacy Policy).

How are consents for cookies and Tools obtained?

To obtain and manage your consents, we use a Tool from Commanders Act, a service provided by Fjord Technologies SAS, 3/5 rue Saint-Georges, 75009 Paris, France (“Commanders Act”). This generates a banner informing you about the data processing on our Website and giving you the option to consent to all, some, or no data processing through optional Tools. This banner appears the first time you visit our Website and when you re-access your settings selection to change them or withdraw consents. The banner will also appear on further visits to our Website if you have deactivated the storage of cookies or if the cookies or information in the local storage have been erased or have expired.

Your consent or withdrawal, your IP address, information about your browser, your end device, and the time of your visit are transmitted to Commanders Act during your Website visit. Commanders Act also stores information in cookies (“TCPID”, “TC_PRIVACY”, “TC_PRIVACY_CENTER”, cookie lifetime: 1 year) in order to document your consents and withdrawals.

The data processing is necessary to provide you with the legally required consent management and comply with our documentation obligations. The legal basis is Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR, justified by our interest in fulfilling the legal requirements for consent management. Access to and storage of information in the end device is absolutely necessary in these cases and takes place on the basis of the implementation laws of the ePrivacy Directive of the EU member states, in the Netherlands pursuant to Article 11.7a of the Telecommunications Act.

Which optional Tools are used?

In addition to necessary Tools, we also use non-essential (optional) Tools.

  • YouTube Videos: We have included videos on our Websites that are stored on YouTube and can be played directly from our Websites if you have consented to this. YouTube is a multimedia service of YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA (“YouTube”), a group company of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

YouTube may store information such as cookies, local storage, and session storage on your end device. JavaScript is also used, which accesses information on your end device. We have enabled YouTube´s privacy-enhanced mode. According to YouTube´s own documentation, this means Google receives less usage information and does not personalise the video recommendations and advertisements. Cookies are no longer stored. However, information will still be stored in the local storage and session storage of your end device, in particular your device ID and other information regarding the playback of the video, which may be retrieved by Google.

The legal basis for this data processing is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1)(a) GDPR. Access to and storage of information in the end device then takes place on the basis of the implementation laws of the ePrivacy Directive of the EU member states, in Germany according to § 25 para. 2 TTDSG .

Your personal data might also be transferred by Google Ireland Limited to Google LLC in the USA. Google LLC has joined the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework, which is why the transfer in this case is based on the adequacy decision for the USA in accordance with Art. 45 GDPR.

When you visit our Website, YouTube and Google receive the information that you have viewed the relevant subpage of our Website. This takes place irrespective of whether or not you are logged in at YouTube or Google. YouTube and Google use those data for the purposes of advertising, market research, and the tailored design of their services. If you access YouTube on our Website while you are logged in to your YouTube or Google profile, YouTube and Google may additionally link this event to the respective profiles. If you do not wish the allocation, you must log out of Google before accessing our Websites.

In addition to withdrawing your consent, you also have the option of disabling personalised advertising in Google’s advertising settings. In this case, Google will only display non-individualised advertising: https://adssettings.google.com/notarget.

If you also wish to ensure that cookies are rejected by your browser, you can configure your browser to reject cookies as described above, or you can prevent the collection of data generated by cookies and related to your use of this Website and the processing of this data by Google by deactivating the “Personalised advertising on the web” button in the Google settings for advertising. In this case, Google will display only non-individualised advertising.

For further information, please refer to Google’s data privacy policy, which also applies to YouTube.

  • Google Maps: On the subpages “Directions” and “Store Locator”, we use the map service Google Maps, which is provided for users from the European Economic Area, Switzerland and Liechtenstein by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland and for all other users by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (collectively “Google”).

In order for the Google map material to be integrated and displayed in your web browser, your web browser must establish a connection to a Google server, which may be located in the USA, when you access the subpage. In addition, JavaScript is used by Google Maps for the functionality of the map service, which accesses information on your end device.

The legal basis for this data processing is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1)(a) GDPR. Access to and storage of information in the end device then takes place on the basis of the implementation laws of the ePrivacy Directive of the EU member states, in Germany according to § 25 para. 2 TTDSG.

Your personal data might also be transferred by Google Ireland Limited to Google LLC in the USA. Google LLC has joined the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework, which is why the transfer in this case is based on the adequacy decision for the USA in accordance with Art. 45 GDPR.

By integrating the map material, Google receives the information that a page of our website has been accessed from the IP address of your device. If you call up the Google map service on our website while you are logged into your Google profile, Google can also link this event to your Google profile. If you do not wish the allocation, you must log out of Google before accessing our Website. Google also uses your data for the purposes of advertising, market research, and personalised presentation of Google Maps.

Further information can be found here:

You can withdraw your consent to the use of optional Tools at any time with effect for the future. To do this, simply click on the following button to open our “Privacy Centre” and set the switch for “External Media” to “Off”.

What social media presences are there?

Our Websites contain links to social networks (such as YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest). The links are regularly identified by the logos of the respective networks. If you follow these links by clicking on them, your browser establishes a direct connection to the social network servers. In this respect, there are no special features compared to other references on the Internet.

If you follow the links while visiting our Websites and are logged in to the networks via your personal user account, the information that you have visited our Websites will be shared and can be linked to your user account. To prevent this, you must log out of your social network user account before clicking on the link.

We maintain online presences in social networks to communicate there with customers and interested parties, among others, and to provide information about our products and services. The users’ data are usually processed by the social networks concerned for market research and advertising purposes. In this way, user profiles may be created based on the users’ interests. For this purpose, cookies and other identifiers are stored on the data subjects’ computers. Based on these user profiles, advertisements are then placed within the social networks, for example, but also on third-party websites. As part of the activity related to our online presence, it is possible that we may access information such as statistics on the use of our online presence provided by the social networks. These statistics are aggregated and may include, in particular, demographic information (such as age, gender, region, and country) as well as data on interaction with our online presences (such as likes, subscription, sharing, and viewing of images and videos) and the posts and content distributed through them. These may also provide information about the interests of users and which content and topics are particularly relevant to them. We may also use this information to customise the design and optimise our activities and content relating to the online presence for our audience. Please refer to the list below for details and links to the data of the social networks that we, as operators of the online presence, are able to access. The collection and use of these statistics is usually subject to joint controllership. Where applicable, the relevant contract is listed below.

The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, based on our legitimate interest in effective information and communication with users, or Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR in order to stay in contact with our customers and to inform them as well as to take steps prior to entering into a contract with interested parties.

If you have an account with the social network, it is possible that we may see your publicly available information and media when we access your profile. In addition, the social network may allow us to contact you. This may be done via direct messages or via posts, for example. The content dissemination via the social network and the processing of content data is subject to the responsibility of the social network as a messenger and platform service. As soon as we further process personal data concerning you or transfer those data into our systems, we are independently liable for this and this is done in order to take steps prior to entering into a contract and to perform a contract in accordance with Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR.

For the legal basis of the data processing carried out by the social networks under their own responsibility, please refer to the data privacy policy of the social network in question. The following links will also provide you with further information on the respective data processing and the options to raise objections. Please note that data protection requests may be asserted most efficiently with the respective social network provider, since only those providers have access to the data and may take appropriate measures directly. Of course, you may also contact us with your request. In this case, we shall process your request and forward it to the social network provider.

Below is a list of information about the social networks on which we operate online presences:

Data transfer to third countries

As explained in this Privacy Policy, we use some services whose providers are located in third countries (meaning outside the European Union or the European Economic Area) or process personal data there, thus countries whose level of data protection does not correspond to that of the European Union. Insofar as this is the case and the European Commission has not issued an adequacy decision for these countries (Art. 45 GDPR), we have taken appropriate precautions to ensure an adequate level of data protection for any data transfers. These include, among others, the European Union´s standard contractual clauses and binding data protection corporate rules.

Where this is not possible, we base the transfer of data on exceptions under Art. 49 GDPR, in particular your express consent or the necessity of the transfer for the fulfilment of the contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

If a transfer to a third country is planned and there is no adequacy decision or suitable guarantees, it is possible and there is a risk that authorities in the respective third country (e.g. secret services) may gain access to the transferred data in order to collect and analyse it, and that the enforceability of your data subject rights cannot be guaranteed. When obtaining your consent via the cookie banner, you will also be informed of this.

Will this text be changed occasionally?

We occasionally update this Privacy Policy (when we adapt our Websites or when legal or regulatory requirements change, for example).

As of: January 2024
