Collection and storage of personal data as well as the type and purpose of its use

a) When visiting the website

When you visit our website, the browser on your device automatically sends information to the server on our website. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information is collected without your intervention and stored until it is automatically deleted:

  • IP address of the requesting computer,
  • Date and time of access,
  • Name and URL of the retrieved file,
  • Website from which access is made (referring URL), browser used, and if necessary, the operating system of your computer and the name of your access provider.

The aforementioned data is processed by us for the following purposes:

To ensure smooth establishment of a connection to the website, to ensure that the website can be easily used, evaluation of system security and stability, as well as for other administrative purposes.
The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6(1)(1)(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest for data collection is based on the purposes listed above. In no case do we use the data collected for the purpose of making inferences about your personal information.
We also use cookies as well as analytical services when you visit our website. You will find more detailed explanations in this Privacy Policy.

b) When using our contact form

If you have any questions, we offer you the opportunity to contact us via a form provided on the website. A valid email address must be provided so that we know who the request comes from and so that we can respond to it. Further information can be provided voluntarily.
Data processing for the purpose of contact with us is carried out in accordance with Art. 6(1)(1)(a) GDPR on the basis of your voluntary consent.
We delete the data collected in this context after storage is no longer necessary, or we restrict processing if legal retention requirements exist.

c) Other functions and offers of our website

In addition to purely informational use of our website, we offer various services that you can use if you are interested. You must generally provide further personal data, which we use to provide the respective service and for which the aforementioned data processing principles apply. The legal basis for this is Art. 6(1)(1)(a), (b), and (f) GDPR.

Disclosure of data

Your personal data is not transmitted to third parties for purposes other than those listed below. We only disclose your personal data on to third parties if:

You have given your express consent pursuant to Art. 6(1)(1)(a) GDPR, the disclosure is necessary for the assertion, exercise, or defence of legal claims pursuant to Art. 6(1)(1)(f) GDPR, and no grounds exist for the presumption that you have an overriding legitimate interest in the non-disclosure of your data, for the case that a legal obligation to disclosure exists pursuant to Art. 6(1)(1)(c) GDPR, or this is legally permissible and necessary for the execution of contractual conditions with you pursuant to Art. 6(1)(1)(b) GDPR.

You will receive more information on this when you provide your personal data or in the description of the respective offer or accepted offer.

If our service providers or partners are based in a country outside the European Economic Area (EEA), we will inform you of the consequences of this circumstance in the offer or accepted offer.

When you submit your application as a job candidate

If I apply for a job offer or apply on my own initiative, I agree that Grob Aircraft SE will store the documents sent and use the information contained to process my application. If my application to Grob Aircraft SE contains special categories of personal data (e.g. information on marital status, which may provide information about my sex life or my sexual orientation; information on my health; a photo which allows conclusions to be drawn about my ethnic origin and, if applicable, my ability to see and/or my religion; similarly sensitive data within the meaning of Art. 9 GDPR), my application may therefore only be processed in this form with my consent. I agree to Grob Aircraft SE processing the special categories of personal data contained in my letter of application and the attached documents for the purpose of conducting the application procedure. This consent is used exclusively to be able to consider the application in its present form at all. The information will not be taken into account in the application process unless there is a legal obligation to do so.

I can refuse my consent to the processing of my application in the application process without giving reasons and revoke my consent at any time, for example by email. In the event of revocation, my data covered by the consent will be deleted immediately. As a result, data processing based on this consent may no longer be continued in the future. In the event of non-issuance or revocation of consent, the application I have already submitted cannot be taken into account in the present form.

If my application is not successful, I agree to Grob Aircraft SE storing my personal data, which I have provided during the entire application process (e.g. in letters of application, CV, certificates, applicant questionnaires, applicant interviews), beyond the end of the specific application process. I agree that Grob Aircraft SE may use this information to contact me later and continue the application process if I am eligible for another position. If in my letter of application or other documents I have submitted in the application procedure I myself have communicated special categories of personal data according to Art. 9 GDPR (e.g. a photo showing ethnic origin, information about severely disabled status etc.), my consent also refers to this data. This consent also applies to data about my qualifications and activities from generally accessible data sources (in particular professional social networks) that Grob Aircraft SE has collected within the scope of the application procedure. My data will not be passed on to third parties.

This consent is voluntary and does not affect my chances in the current application process. I can also revoke my consent at any time. In this case my data will be deleted immediately after completion of the application process. As a result, we may no longer continue the data processing based on this consent in the future.

The legal basis for the processing of data for applications is consent pursuant to Art. 6(1)(1)(a) GDPR.

Cookies do not damage your end device, do not contain any viruses, trojan horses, or other harmful software.
Information is stored in the cookie, which in each case is derived from the specific end device used. This does not mean however that we directly receive knowledge of your identity. The use of cookies on the one hand serves to improve your experience using our offered web content. We use so-called session cookies to recognize that you have already visited individual pages of our website. These are automatically deleted after you leave our website.

We also use temporary cookies that are stored on your end device for a certain specified period. If you visit our website again to use our services, it is automatically recognized that you have already visited us, what information you have provided to us, and what settings you have used, so that you do not need to enter this information again.
On the other hand, we use cookies to keep statistical data on our website and to evaluate this use for the purposes of optimizing the web content that we offer to you (see Section 5).

Use of social media plugins

We currently use the following social media plugins: Instagram. We use the so-called two-click solution. This means that when you visit our site, no personal data is initially passed on to the providers of the plugins. You can recognize the provider of plugins by the marking on the box above its initial letter or the logo. We provide you with the option of communicating directly with the provider of the plugin via the button. Only if you click on the selected field and activate it will the plugin provider receive notification that you have accessed the website with our online offer. The data referred to in section 3 of this policy is also transmitted. In the case of Facebook and Instagram, the IP address is anonymized immediately after collection, according to the respective provider in Germany. By activating the plugin, personal data is transferred from you to the respective plugin provider and stored there (in the case of US providers in the USA). Since the plug-in provider collects data mainly via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies before clicking on the grayed-out box using your browser's security settings.

We have no influence on the data collected or data processing operations, nor are we aware of the full extent of data collection, the purposes of processing, or the storage periods. We also have no information on the deletion of the data collected by the plugin provider.

The plugin provider stores the data collected about you as user profiles and uses these for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide advertising that is demand-oriented and in order to notify other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right. Via the plugins, we offer you the possibility to interact with social networks and other users so that we can improve our offer and provide more interesting information for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of plugins is Art. 6(1)(1)(l)(f) GDPR.

The data is transferred regardless of whether you have an account with the plugin provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in to the plugin provider, your data collected by us will be assigned directly to your account with the plugin provider. If you click the activated button and, for example, link to the page, the plugin provider also stores this information in your user account and publicly shares it with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, especially before activating the button, as this way you can avoid being assigned to your profile with the plugin provider.

For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the plugin provider, please refer to the privacy policies of these providers as listed below. They will also provide you with further information about your rights in this regard and settings options to protect your privacy.

Data security

We use the most common SSL (Secure Socket Layer) method in connection with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser. Usually this is a 256 bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v3 technology instead. Whether a single page of our website is transmitted in encrypted form is indicated by the closed display of the key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser.

We also use appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your data from accidental or deliberate manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction, or unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved according to technological development.

All employees of our company are regularly trained in data protection and are committed to data protection. Our computer center and our in-house EDP department continuously adapt our technical security precautions to current conditions and requirements. Both are subject to constant control by our internal processes and the data protection officer. Nevertheless, internet technologies can have security gaps that cannot guarantee comprehensive protection one hundred percent. Therefore, our users can also transmit data to us via other contact options, such as telephone or fax.
