The same applies in the event that we supply you with information material on request or when we answer your enquiries. In these cases, we will always point this out to you. Furthermore, we only store the data that you have transmitted to us automatically or voluntarily.

The primary purpose of data processing is the establishment, implementation and termination of the employment relationship. The relevant legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 b) GDPR in conjunction with § 26 (1) BDSG. In addition, collective agreements (group, general and company agreements as well as collective bargaining agreements) pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 b) in conjunction with Art. 88 para. 1 GDPR can be used.

Automatically stored data
Server log filesThe provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
Date and time of the request
Name of the requested file
Page from which the file was requested
Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
Web browser and operating system used
Complete IP address of the requesting computer
Volume of data transferred
For reasons of technical security, in particular to defend against attempted attacks on our web server, we store this data for a short period of time. It is not possible for us to draw conclusions about individual persons on the basis of this data. After seven days at the latest, the data is anonymised by shortening the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a link to the individual user. The data is also processed in anonymised form for statistical purposes; it is not compared with other data or passed on to third parties, not even in extracts.
MATOMO as a cloud solution
For the purpose of website analysis, data (IP address, time of visit, device and browser information as well as information on your use of our website) is automatically collected and stored using the Matomo software from InnoCraft Ltd https://matomo.org/., 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand, from which usage profiles are created using pseudonyms. Cookies may be used for this purpose. The pseudonymised usage profiles are not combined with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym without your express consent, which must be given separately. Matomo is acting on our behalf. For New Zealand, the European Commission has determined an adequate level of data protection by decision. You can object to the data processing, provided you have consented, at any time here.
You have the option of subscribing to our newsletter (Job Alert) on the website. When you register for the newsletter, the data requested from the input mask is transmitted to Conrad Electronic SE.
In addition, the following data will be collected during registration:
- IP address of the computer of the logon user
- Date and time of registration
- Name of the website on which you subscribed to our newsletter
As part of the registration process, consent is obtained through a so-called double opt-in procedure. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time via the link provided for this purpose in the newsletter or by sending us a corresponding message. After unsubscribing, your email address will be deleted from our newsletter distribution list immediately.
Your personal data is protected against theft and misuse using the latest technical procedures. If you provide personal data, it will be transmitted in encrypted form (TLS). Under no circumstances will we pass on your data to third parties.
The legal basis for the processing of data after registration for the newsletter by the user is Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR if the user has given his consent.
The collection of the user's email address is used to deliver the newsletter.
The collection of other personal data as part of the registration process serves to prevent misuse of the services or the e-mail address used.
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. The user's email address is therefore stored as long as the subscription to the newsletter is active.
The subscription to the newsletter can be cancelled by the user concerned at any time. For this purpose, a corresponding link can be found in each newsletter.
We have implemented technical and administrative security measures to protect your personal data against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. All our employees and service providers working for us are bound by the applicable data protection laws.
Whenever we collect and process personal data, it is encrypted before it is transmitted. This means that your data cannot be misused by third parties. Our security measures are subject to a continuous improvement process and our data protection statements are constantly being revised. Please ensure that you have the latest version.
What data protection rights do you have?
You have a right to information, correction, deletion or restriction of the processing of your stored data at any time, a right to object to the processing as well as a right to data portability and to lodge a complaint in accordance with the requirements of data protection law.
Right to information:
You can request information from us as to whether and to what extent we process your data.
Right of rectification:
If we process your data that is incomplete or incorrect, you can request that we correct or complete it at any time.
Right to deletion:
You can demand that we delete your data if we process it unlawfully or if the processing disproportionately interferes with your legitimate interests in protection. Please note that there may be reasons that prevent immediate deletion, e.g. in the case of legally regulated retention obligations.
Irrespective of the exercise of your right to deletion, we will delete your data immediately and completely, insofar as there is no legal or statutory obligation to retain data in this respect.
Right to restriction of processing:
You may request us to restrict the processing of your data if you dispute the accuracy of the data for a period of time that allows us to verify the accuracy of the data..
- the processing of the data is unlawful, but you refuse erasure and instead request restriction of the use of the data,
- we no longer need the data for the intended purpose, but you still need this data to assert or defend legal claims, or
- you have objected to the processing of the data.
Right to data portability:
You may request that we provide you with the data you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and that you may transfer this data to another controller without hindrance from us, provided that
- we process that data on the basis of consent given by you, which may be revoked, or for the performance of a contract between us; and
- this processing is carried out with the aid of automated procedures.
If technically feasible, you can request us to transfer your data directly to another data controller.
Right to object:
If we process your data for legitimate interest, you can object to this data processing at any time; this would also apply to profiling based on these provisions. We will then no longer process your data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. You may object to the processing of your data for the purpose of direct marketing at any time without giving reasons.
Right of appeal:
If you are of the opinion that we are violating German or European data protection law when processing your data, please contact us so that we can clarify any questions. Of course, you also have the right to contact the supervisory authority responsible for you, the respective state office for data protection supervision.
If you wish to exercise any of these rights against us, please contact our data protection officer. In case of doubt, we may request additional information to confirm your identity.
Are you obliged to provide data?
The processing of your data is necessary for the conclusion or fulfilment of your employment contract entered into or sought with us. If you do not provide us with this data, we will usually have to refuse to conclude the contract. However, you are not obliged to give your consent to data processing with regard to data that is not relevant for the performance of the contract or that is not required by law.
