2. General information on the collection of personal data

With the following information, we inform you transparently about the type and scope of the processing of personal data,

- external online presences on social media platforms
- in the context of application procedures

are collected.

The legal basis for our data protection is in particular the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the supplementary regulations of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telecommunications Telemedia Data Protection Act (TTDSG).

2.1 Purpose / legal basis of processing

In such cases where we obtain your consent for processing operations of personal data, Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract concluded between you and us, Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

In the event that the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which we are subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR is the legal basis.

In the event that the processing of personal data is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR is the legal basis for the processing.

If cookies or similar technologies are set during data processing, these are stored or accessed in a user's terminal device (e.g. device fingerprinting) in accordance with Section 25 (1) TTDSG in conjunction with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.

If the use of cookies is absolutely necessary, this is done on the basis of § 25 para. 2 p. 2 TTDSG.

2.2 Disclosure of personal data

If, in the course of our processing, we transfer your personal data to other bodies or disclose it to them, this is done exclusively on the basis of one of the legal bases mentioned. The recipients of this data may include, for example, payment service providers in the context of the fulfillment of the contract. In such cases, in which we are obliged to do so by law or by court order, we must transmit your data to bodies entitled to receive information.

If external service providers support us in the processing of your data (e.g. data analysis, newsletter dispatch), this is done within the framework of order processing in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. In doing so, we only conclude appropriate contracts with service providers that offer sufficient guarantees that appropriate technical and organizational measures ensure the protection of your data.

2.3 Data transfer to third countries

Data is only transferred to third countries (outside the European Union or the European Economic Area) if this is in accordance with the legal requirements. Subject to express consent or contractually or legally required transfer, we only process or allow the data to be processed in third countries with a recognised level of data protection or in accordance with Art. 44 et seq. GDPR on the basis of special guarantees, such as contractual obligation through so-called standard protection clauses of the EU Commission (information page of the EU Commission: ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection_de).

2.4 Storage of data

As soon as the respective purpose for storage no longer applies, we will delete or block your personal data. In addition, your personal data will only be stored if special statutory retention periods (in particular commercial and tax retention obligations) at national or European level prevent deletion.

7. Messenger services

We use messenger services to stay in touch with customers and prospects. In addition, we use the services to draw attention to our services and products.

User data may be processed outside the European Union. This may result in risks for you as a user, and it may make it more difficult to enforce your rights. When selecting the messenger services we use, we make sure that the operators undertake to comply with the data protection standards of the European Union.

If you use our messenger service, we are Maximator Hydrogen GmbH, Petriblick 2, 99734 Nordhausen, Germany, in accordance with Art. 26 GDPR and other data protection regulations together with the provider of the respective messenger service.

We have no influence on the processing of personal data by the respective service provider. For example, messenger services may use your data for market research and advertising purposes. Among other things, user behavior can be analyzed and a user profile can be created from the resulting interests of the user. Messenger services can read the contact data on the end devices you use and, if necessary, pass them on to third parties. Persons who are not registered as users with the respective messenger service may also be affected by the data processing.

Messenger services provide statistical data of different categories. These statistics are generated and provided by the respective messenger service provider. As users of the messenger service, we have no influence on the generation and presentation. We use the data available in aggregated form to make our posts and activities in our messenger channel more attractive for customers and prospects.

7.2 Storage period

The data collected directly by us via the messenger services will be deleted from our systems as soon as the purpose for its processing no longer applies, you request us to delete it or revoke your consent to storage. Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

We have no influence on the storage period of your data, which is stored by providers of messenger services for their own purposes. You can find more information on this directly from the service provider (e.g. in their privacy policy, see below).

7.3 Rights of data subjects

In principle, you can assert your rights (information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability and complaint) both against us and against the service provider.

Despite joint responsibility, we would like to point out that we do not have complete access to your personal data. For this reason, you should contact the provider of the messenger service directly for requests for information and the assertion of data subject rights. This is because only the providers have access to user data and can take direct action and provide information. If you would like support in this, please contact us.

These are text files that are stored on your computer and that enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, if IP anonymisation (AnonymizeIP) is activated on this website, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to Google's servers in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.

The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "Anonymize IP". As a result, IP addresses are processed in abbreviated form, so that a personal reference can be almost impossible. Insofar as the data collected about you is personally identifiable, it will be deleted immediately.

We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. We can use the statistics obtained to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is the consent you have given in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG.

We also use Google Analytics for a cross-device analysis of visitor flows, which is carried out via a user ID. You can deactivate the cross-device analysis of your usage in your customer account under "My data", "Personal data".

We use the "Microsoft Teams" tool to conduct telephone and video conferences, online meetings, video consultations, digital coaching and/or webinars (hereinafter: "online meetings"). Microsoft Teams is a service of Microsoft Corporation, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399, USA.

If you access the Microsoft Teams (https://teams.microsoft.com/) website, Microsoft is responsible for data processing. The access to this website is necessary for the download of the necessary software if it should not or cannot be used directly and without downloading via an Internet browser.

11.1.1 Data categories

When using Microsoft Teams, various types of data are processed. The total volume of data processing also depends on the information provided by the user before, during and after an "online meeting".

In principle, the following personal data may be processed:

User details: first name, last name, telephone (optional), e-mail address, password (if "single sign-on" is not used), profile picture (optional), department (optional)

Meeting metadata: topic, description (optional), date, time, duration, participant IP addresses, device/hardware information

For recordings (optional): MP4 file of all video, audio and presentation recordings, M4A file of all audio recordings, text file of the online meeting chat.

When dialing in by telephone: information on the incoming and outgoing phone number, country name, start and end time. If necessary, further connection data such as the IP address of the device can be stored.

Text, audio and video data: You may have the option of using the chat, question or survey functions in an "online meeting". The text entries you make will be processed in order to display them in the "online meeting" and, if necessary, to log them. In order to enable the display of video and the playback of audio, the data of a microphone and a possible video camera of the end device are processed during the meeting. The data transfer from camera and microphone can be switched off or muted at any time and by any user independently via the Microsoft Teams applications.

In order to participate in an "online meeting" or to enter the "meeting room", at least your name is required.

11.1.2 Storage of data

There will be no recording of the "online meetings". If we want to record "online meetings", we will inform you in advance and obtain consent. The fact of the recording is also displayed to you in the Microsoft Teams app.

The content of the chats is logged when Microsoft uses Microsoft Teams. If it is necessary for the purpose of logging the results of an online meeting, chat content may also be logged by us.

In the case of webinars, we may also process the questions asked by webinar participants for the purpose of recording and following up on webinars.

Automated decision-making within the meaning of Art. 22 GDPR does not apply.

11.1.3 Legal basis for data processing

Insofar as personal data of employees of Maximator Hydrogen GmbH are processed, § 26 BDSG is the legal basis for data processing.

If, in connection with the use of Microsoft Teams, personal data is not required for the establishment, implementation or termination of the employment relationship, but is nevertheless an elementary component of the use of Microsoft Teams, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR is the legal basis for data processing. In these cases, we are interested in the effective implementation of "online meetings".

In all other respects, the legal basis for data processing when conducting "online meetings" is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, insofar as the meetings are conducted within the framework of contractual relationships.

11.1.4 Recipients / disclosure of data

Personal data processed in connection with participation in "online meetings" will not be disclosed to third parties unless they are specifically intended for disclosure. Apart from this, data will only be passed on to third parties if we are legally obliged to do so (e.g. by court order) or if the data subjects have expressly consented to the disclosure of their data.

The provider of Microsoft Teams, who supports us in conducting "online meetings", necessarily obtains knowledge of the above-mentioned data, insofar as this is provided for in the context of our order processing contract with Microsoft.

Microsoft is obliged to comply with the legal requirements of the applicable data protection law via the order processing concluded with Microsoft Teams, on the basis of EU standard contractual clauses.  A currently valid version can be viewed at the following link:

11.1.5 Data processing outside the European Union

Data processing outside the European Union (EU) does not take place as a matter of principle, as we have limited our storage location to data centers in the European Union. However, we cannot completely rule out routing or storage on servers outside the European Union at the processor Microsoft.

A secure level of data protection is ensured by the conclusion of supplemented EU standard data protection clauses as well as technical and organizational measures. The data is encrypted, for example, during transport over the Internet and is therefore generally protected against unauthorized access by third parties. Furthermore, in a statement dated July 20, 2020, with regard to personal data stored by Microsoft in the USA and Europe and which may be subject to official requests for information from authorities in the USA, Microsoft guarantees that such orders that would allow access to personal data will be challenged in court.

12. Social media presences

12.1 Information on social media

We operate publicly accessible profiles on social networks to draw attention to our services and products. There we would like to get in touch with you as a visitor and user of these pages as well as our website.

User data may be processed outside the European Union. This may result in risks for you as a user, and it may make it more difficult to enforce your rights. When selecting the social media platforms we use, we make sure that the operators commit to complying with EU data protection standards.

If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g. Facebook, Instagram or LinkedIn), we, Maximator Hydrogen GmbH, Petriblick 2, 99734 Nordhausen, Germany, are jointly responsible with the operator of the respective social media platform within the meaning of the GDPR and other data protection regulations.

12.1.1 Data processing on social media platforms

We have no influence on the processing of personal data by the respective platform operator. For example, social networks such as Facebook use your data for market research and advertising purposes. Among other things, user behavior can be analyzed and a user profile can be created from the resulting interests of the user. The social media operators use cookies to store and further process this information. These are text files that are stored on the user's various terminals. If you have a profile on the respective social media platform and are logged in to it, the storage and analysis is even carried out across devices. In this way, interest-based advertising can be displayed to you inside and outside the respective social media presence. Persons who are not registered as users with the respective social media platform may also be affected by the data processing.

Statistical data of different categories can be accessed by us via social media platforms. These statistics are generated and provided by the social media operator. As the operator of the fan page, we have no influence on the generation and presentation. We use this data available in aggregated form (total number of page views, "likes", page activities, post interactions, reach, video views, post reach, comments, shared content, answers, proportion of men and women, origin in terms of country and city, language, views and clicks in the shop, clicks on route planners, clicks on telephone numbers) to make our posts and activities on our fan page more attractive to users.  Due to the constant development of social media platforms, the availability and processing of data is changing, so we refer to the privacy policies of the platforms for further details.

12.1.2 Legal basis

The operation of these fan pages, including the processing of users' personal data, is based on our legitimate interests in a contemporary and supportive information and interaction option for and with our users and visitors in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR. Under certain circumstances, you may also have given a platform operator your consent to data processing, in which case Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR is the legal basis.

For a comprehensive description of the respective data processing and the possibilities of objection (opt-out), we refer to the data protection declarations and information of the corresponding platform operator.

12.1.3 Storage period

The data collected directly by us via the social media presences will be deleted from our systems as soon as the purpose for which it was stored no longer applies, you request us to delete it or revoke your consent to its storage. Stored cookies remain on your device until they are deleted by you. Mandatory legal provisions – esp. Retention periods – remain unaffected.

We have no influence on the storage period of your data, which is stored by social network providers for their own purposes. You can find more information on this directly from the operator of the social network (e.g. in their privacy policy, see below).

12.1.4 Assertion of rights

In principle, you can assert your rights (information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability and complaint) both against us and against the operator of the respective portal (e.g. Facebook).

Despite joint responsibility, we would like to point out that we do not have complete access to your personal data. For this reason, you should contact the providers of the social media platforms directly for requests for information and the assertion of data subject rights. This is because only the providers have access to user data and can take direct action and provide information. If you need help with this, please contact us: Maximator Hydrogen GmbH, Petriblick 2, 99734 Nordhausen, kontakt@maximator-hydrogen.de.

If you submit an unsolicited application that does not relate to a specific position, we will include your application documents as part of filling decisions about all possible positions.
