- Contact person of responsible authority
The responsible authority for the collection and processing of your personal data is Hüsges GmbH, Halskestraße 20, 47877 Willich, Germany. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
- Definition of personal data
This is all the information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. A natural person shall be considered identifiable if he can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an on-line identifier or one or more specific characteristics expressing the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
- Use of our website and contacting us
You can visit our website at any time without providing any personal information. If individual functions and services offered via our website require the specification, storage and use of personal data, you will be informed of this separately in advance.
If we evaluate your usage behaviour on our website without your express consent, we shall use your data exclusively in anonymous or pseudonymised form. This data includes the date and time our website was accessed, the name and URL of the file accessed, the website from which it was accessed (referrer URL), your browser type, browser settings and operating system, the last page you visited, the amount of data transferred and the IP address. Your Internet Service Provider can trace which IP address was assigned to you at which time. Since the complete IP address thus allows at least an indirect personal reference, we shall record your IP address exclusively in abbreviated (anonymized) form, so that a personal reference is excluded for us.
The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. Insofar as personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail address) is collected on our pages, this is always done, as far as possible, on a voluntary basis.
When you contact us by e-mail or via a contact form, the data you provide (e.g. your e-mail address, telephone number) will be stored by us in order to answer your questions. We shall delete the data arising in this connection after the storage is no longer necessary, or restrict the processing if there are legal storage obligations.
- Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU Data Protection Basic Regulation (DS-GVO) serves as the legal basis.
Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DS-GVO serves as a legal basis for the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party. This shall also apply to processing operations necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DS-GVO serves as the legal basis.
In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person necessitate the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d DS-GVO serves as the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.
- Deletion of data and storage duration
The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. Storage may also take place if the European or national legislator has provided for this in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the person responsible is subject. The data shall also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless it is necessary for further storage of the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.
- Right to information, deletion, amendment
You have the following rights against us with regard to your personal data:
- Right to confirmation:
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right to obtain at any time from the data controller, free of charge, information concerning the personal data relating to him or her which has been stored and a copy of that information. If a person concerned wishes to exercise this right of correction, he or she can contact our data protection officer at any time.
- Right to rectification
You have the right to demand from us immediately the correction of incorrect personal data concerning you. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject shall have the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary statement.

Sie haben das Recht, von uns unverzüglich die Berichtigung sie betreffender unrichtiger personenbezogener Daten zu verlangen. Unter Berücksichtigung der Zwecke der Verarbeitung hat die betroffene Person das Recht, die Vervollständigung unvollständiger personenbezogener Daten – auch mittels einer ergänzenden Erklärung – zu verlangen.
- Recht auf Löschung (Recht auf Vergessen werden)
Any person subject to the processing of personal data shall have the right to demand from the data controller the erasure without delay of the personal data concerning him or her, where one of the following reasons applies and where the processing is not required:
- The personal data has been collected for such purposes or processed in any a way for which it is no longer necessary;
- The data subject withdraws his or her consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) DS-GVO or Article 9(2)(a) DS-GVO and there is no other legal basis for the processing;
- The data subject objects to the processing under Article 21(1) DS-GVO and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing or the data subject objects to the processing under Article 21(2) DS-GVO;
- Personal data has been processed unlawfully;
- The deletion of personal data is necessary in order to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the data controller is subject or if the personal data has been collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Art. 8 (1) DS-GVO.
- Right to limitation of processing
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right to request the controller to limit the processing if one of the following conditions is met:
- The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject for a period of time which allows the data controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
- The processing is unlawful, the data subject refuses the deletion of the personal data and instead requests the restriction of the use of the personal data;
- The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but the data subject needs it for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims;
- The data subject has lodged an objection against the processing pursuant to Art. 21 1 DS-GVO and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the data controller outweigh those of the data subject.
- Right to data transferability
Any person subject to the processing of personal data has the right to obtain the personal data concerning him or her in a structured, common and machine-readable format. He or she shall also have the right to communicate such data to another controller without interference from the controller to whom the personal data has been provided, as long as the processing is based on the consent referred to in Article 6(1)(a) DS-GVO or Article 9(2)(a) DS-GVO or on a contract referred to in Article 6(1)(b) DS-GVO and that the processing is carried out by automated means, provided that the processing is not necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
Furthermore, when exercising his or her right to data transferability pursuant to Art. 20 (1) DS-GVO, the data subject shall have the right to obtain that the personal data be transferred directly from one responsible person to another responsible person, insofar as this is technically feasible and insofar as this does not impair the rights and freedoms of other persons.
- Objection or revocation against the processing of your data
If you have given your consent to the processing of your data, you can revoke it at any time. Such a revocation influences the permissibility of the processing of your personal data after you have given it to us.
Insofar as we base the processing of your personal data on a weighing of interests, you may object to the processing. This is the case if the processing is not necessary in particular for the fulfilment of a contract with you, which is described by us in the following description of the functions. In the event of such an objection, we shall ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we have done. In the event of your justified objection, we will examine the facts and either discontinue or adapt the data processing or point out our compelling reasons worthy of protection on the basis of which we will continue the processing.
You can of course object to the processing of your personal data for advertising and data analysis purposes at any time. You can inform us about your advertising objection under the contact details as described under No. 2, or by e-mail to: email@example.com

We would like to point out that confidentiality cannot be guaranteed if applications are sent unencrypted via e-mail. As a rule, you can also apply for our positions by post or directly on site.

We shall store your personal data with receipt of your application. If we accept your application and an employment relationship is established, we shall store your applicant data as long as this is necessary for the employment relationship and as long as legal regulations require it to be stored. If we reject your application, we will store your applicant data for a maximum of three months after the rejection of your application, unless you give us your consent to longer storage. If you have given us your separate consent, we will store the data you provide in your application in our applicant pool for a further twelve months 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 deleted after this period has expired. You can revoke this consent at any time for the future by sending us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org .

- Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking
On our website we have integrated the service “Google AdWords” of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
Google AdWords is an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to place ads both in Google search engine results and on the Google advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to pre-define specific keywords that will be used to display an ad in Google’s search engine results only when the user retrieves a relevant search result from the Google search engine.
The purpose of Google AdWords is to promote our website by displaying advertisements of interest on third-party websites and in Google search engine results and by displaying third-party advertisements on our website.
GIf a person concerned reaches our website via a Google advertisement, Google Inc. will store a so-called conversion cookie on the end device of the person concerned, which loses its validity after thirty days and does not serve to identify the person concerned. If the conversion cookie has not yet expired, it is used to track whether certain subpages on our website have been accessed. Through the conversion cookie, both we and Google can track whether a person who came to our website via an AdWords ad generated a turnover, i.e. completed or cancelled a purchase of goods.
The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to compile visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are in turn used by us to determine the total number of users who were referred to us via AdWords ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of the respective AdWords ad and to optimise our AdWords ads for the future. Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive any information from Google that could identify the individual concerned.
The conversion cookie is used to store personal data, such as the Internet pages visited by the person concerned. Accordingly, each time you visit our website, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transferred to Google in the USA. This personal data is stored by Google in the USA. Google may share this personally identifiable information with third parties.
The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser would also prevent Google from setting a conversion cookie on the end device of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the Internet Furthermore, the person concerned has the opportunity to object to the interest-related advertising by Google. To do this, the person concerned must access the link www.google.de/settings/ads from any of the Internet browsers they use and make the desired settings there.
- Google Remarketing
On our website we have integrated services of “Google Remarketing” of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
Google Remarketing is a Google AdWords feature that enables a company to display advertisements to Internet users who have previously been on the company’s website. The integration of Google Remarketing therefore allows a company to create user-related advertisements and consequently to display advertisements of interest to the Internet user.
Google Remarketing places a cookie on the end device of the person concerned. The setting of cookies enables Google to recognize visitors to our website who subsequently visit websites that are also members of the Google advertising network. Each time a website is accessed on which the Google Remarketing service has been integrated, the Internet browser of the person concerned automatically identifies itself to Google. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address or the surfing behaviour of the user, which Google uses, among other things, to display advertisements relevant to the interests of the user.
The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the Internet pages visited by the person concerned. Each time you visit our website, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transferred to Google Inc. in the USA. This personal data is stored by Google Inc. in the USA. Google may share this personally identifiable information with third parties.
The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the end device of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by “Google Analytics” can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software.
Furthermore, the person concerned has the opportunity to object to the interest-related advertising by Google. For this purpose, the person concerned must call up the link www.google.de/settings/ads via the respective Internet browser and make the desired settings there.
