Privacy Policy

Thank you for your interest in our company. Solka Engineering attaches great importance to data protection. A use of the internet pages of Solka Engineering GmbH is essentially possible without any indication of personal data. If a person concerned wishes to make use of special services provided by our company via our website, this may necessitate the processing of personal data. Should it be necessary, we will obtain the consent of the person concerned.

The processing of personal data always takes place in accordance with the Basic Data Protection Ordinance (DSVGO) and in accordance with national data protection regulations. With this data protection declaration, our company wishes to inform visitors about the content and purpose of the personal data collected and processed by us. In addition, this data protection declaration informs those affected about the rights to which they are entitled.

Solka Engineering GmbH, as the operator of the website, has implemented extensive technical and organisational measures to ensure reliable protection of the data processed within the framework of this website. Nevertheless, data transmissions between your terminal device and our server may in principle have weak points, especially if you communicate with our server via a device that is in third-party access. If you have security concerns, you may also provide information by other means, telephone or at one of our offices.

1. Definitions

The data protection declaration of Solka Engineering GmbH is based on the provisions and definitions of the Data Protection Basic Regulation (DSGVO). Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for visitors as well as for customers and business partners. In order to guarantee this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance:

1) Personal data
Personal data is all information relating to an identifiable natural person.

2) Data Subject
Data subject is any identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by a responsible company.

3) Controller
The controller is the company that collects the data of data subjects and decides on the purposes and means of the processing.

4) Data processor
The data processor is a natural person or a company involved in a processing operation by the controller.

5) Recipient
The recipient is a natural or legal person, or public body, to whom personal data are made accessible.

6) Third party
A third party is a natural or legal person or public body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller or the processor.

7) Processing
Processing is any operation carried out in relation to personal data. This ranges from the collection to the storage to the restriction or deletion of the data.

8) Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing means a reduction in the use of personal data.

5. Cookies

The internet pages of Solka Engineering GmbH use cookies – these are text files that are stored in the file system of a computer via an internet browser.
Cookies contain a cookie ID, which is a unique identifier. They enable Solka Engineering GmbH to distinguish the browser of the person concerned from other Internet browsers and to individually display content in order to respond to the wishes and results of the person concerned.
An example is the cookie of a shopping basket in the online shop. The online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping basket via a cookie.

Cookies already stored on your computer can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or directly in the file system. We would like to point out that when cookies are deactivated, a limited function set of the website may be available.

9. Data protection for applications and in the application procedure 

The person responsible collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application. The processing can also be carried out electronically.

If Solka Engineering GmbH does not conclude a service contract with the applicant, the applicant’s documents will be automatically deleted at the latest six months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of Solka Engineering GmbH or the applicant’s consent for further processing are opposed to such deletion.
If your application is not for a specific position (unsolicited application), your data may be forwarded to a company of the Solka Engineering Group out of mutual legitimate interest in accordance with your qualifications.
