Privacy policy

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the ekvip automation GmbH. By means of this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of their rights by means of this data protection declaration.

As the responsible party, the ekvip automation GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions can always be vulnerable to security risks, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.

1. Definitions

The data protection declaration of ekvip automation GmbH is based on the terms used by the European Directive and Ordinance when issuing the Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.

We use the following terms, among others, in this Privacy Policy:

Personal data: Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter "data subject"). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

Data subject: The data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.

Pseudonymization: Is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separate and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

Person responsible or oerson in charge of the processing: Is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by EU or Member State law, the person responsible or the specific criteria for its designation may be provided for under Union or Member State law.

However, public authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation mandate under EU or Member State law shall not be considered as recipients.

Third party: Is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body other than the data subject, the person responsible, the processor and the persons authorized to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the responsible party or the processor.

Consent: Shall mean any freely given indication of the data subject's wishes for the specific case in an informed and unambiguous manner, in the form of a statement or any other unambiguous affirmative act by which the data subject indicates that he or she consents to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

3. Collection and storage of personal data and the nature and purpose of their use

When accessing our website, the browser used on your technical device automatically sends information to the server of our website. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information is collected without your intervention and stored until automated deletion:

  • IP address
  • Date and time of the request
  • Content of the request (specific page)
  • Access status/HTTP status code
  • Data volume transferred in each case
  • Website from which the request is coming
  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system and its interface
  • Language and version of the browser software
  • Name of the accessed website
  • Message about successful retrieval

The aforementioned data will be processed by us for the following purposes:

  • Ensuring a smooth connection of the website,
  • Ensuring a comfortable use of our website,
  • Evaluation of system security and stability, and
  • for other administrative purposes.

Therefore, these anonymously collected data and information are evaluated by us on the one hand statistically and on the other hand with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest follows from the purposes for data collection listed above. In no case do we use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person.

In addition, we use cookies and analysis services when you visit our website. You can find more detailed explanations of this in sections 6 and 7 of this privacy policy.

Contacting via the website or by e-mail: Based on statutory provisions, our website contains data that enables a quick electronic contact to our company as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts us by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be stored automatically. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the controller will be stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the data subject. No disclosure of this personal data to third parties will take place.

Data processing for the purpose of contacting us is based on your voluntarily given consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

The personal data collected by us for the purpose of contacting you will be deleted after the request you have made has been dealt with.

Registration on our website: If you register on our website by providing personal data, the personal data visible from the respective input mask will be transmitted to us. The personal data entered by the data subject is collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller and for its own purposes. The controller may arrange for the data to be transferred to one or more processors, for example a parcel service provider, who will also use the personal data exclusively for an internal use attributable to the controller.

By registering on our website, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the person concerned, the date and the time of registration are also stored. The storage of this data takes place against the background that only in this way can the misuse of our services be prevented and, if necessary, this data makes it possible to clarify crimes that have been committed. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary for the protection of the data controller. As a matter of principle, this data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to pass it on or the passing on serves the purpose of criminal prosecution.

The registration of the data subject by voluntarily providing personal data allows us to offer the data subject content or services which, due to the nature of the matter, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to change the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have it completely deleted from the data stock of the controller.

The person responsible for the processing shall provide any data subject at any time, upon request, with information about what personal data is stored about the data subject. Furthermore, the person responsible shall correct or delete personal data at the request or indication of the data subject, provided that this does not conflict with any statutory retention obligations.

4. Disclosure of data

Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those listed below.

We will only share your information with third parties if:

  • the disclosure according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not disclosing your data,
  • in the event that there is a legal obligation for disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. c DSGVO, or
  • this is legally permissible and required according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DSGVO for the processing of contractual relationships with you or for the initiation of contractual relationships with you at your request, or, if applicable.
  • on the basis of your express consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

    5. Applications / unsolicited applications

    The ekvip automation GmbH places the highest value on the protection of your personal data. We therefore inform you about our handling of your data and the legal data protection regulations in order to provide you with a trustworthy application process. Please read the following information carefully before submitting your data to us.

    If you wish to submit an online application, this requires you to enter certain personal data marked as mandatory in the online application form. Furthermore, they have the option of providing additional voluntary information and submitting application documents. They only need to provide the data that is required for processing their application or for a pre-contractual relationship with us, or which we are legally obliged to collect.

    The transmission of data and files ("data") provided by you to us will only take place if you have declared by clicking the checkbox that you agree to the collection and processing of your personal data in accordance with the data protection regulations for applications. The data transmission is encrypted (httpss encryption).

    When you send us an application by e-mail, we collect the same from the data sent to us.

    The data subject to processing are, for example, your surname, first name, date of birth, place of birth, contact data, any application photos you may have submitted, qualifications (educational qualifications, professional background, knowledge, skills), information in your CV, any profile data from social media (e.g. LinkedIn, XING) as well as other data relevant to the application and any special categories of personal data you may have provided (e.g. photograph, severely disabled status, etc.).

    The data you provide in the application process will be processed by us in order to check your application, to contact you and to offer you suitable positions and, if necessary, to carry out an employment relationship (Purposes of employment).

    ekvip automation GmbH provides services both in its own technical offices and at or in cooperation with customer companies (contract for work, contract for services, temporary employment, together "projects"). In individual cases it operates personnel placement. You can select whether you are available for the latter in the applicant management system, as well as the desired scope of your activity.

    In order to compare the possibilities of employment in projects with our business partners, the data is passed on to these business partners as far as necessary. Where possible, this is done in pseudonymized or anonymized form. The business partners are legally and contractually obligated to protect your data with respect to us and you.

    Your personal data will be processed for the purpose of initiating and, if necessary, concluding and implementing an employment relationship, Art. 6 para. 1 lit b DSGVO, § 26 BDSG (purpose 1) and in this context for the purpose of initiating or implementing a contractual relationship between ekvip automation GmbH and its customers in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit b DSGVO (purpose 2), as well as for the purpose of fulfilling legal requirements in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit c DSGVO (purpose 3).

    The data processed by us will be stored until the purpose of the processing no longer applies and then until the expiry of any retention periods.

    If you choose the option to be informed about job offers that go beyond your specific application by means of consent, your applicant profile will be stored in the applicant management system  for an initial period of three years, then for a further year after your contact with us, but no longer than until you revoke this consent.

    You have the right to object to the storage of your data at any time. After receipt of your objection, your data will be deleted. This does not apply if legal provisions (e.g. §§ 238, 257 HGB; § 147 AO) oppose the deletion or if the further storage is necessary for evidence purposes (Art. 17 para. 3 lit 3 DSGVO).

    To maintain the data, we sometimes use the services of companies based outside the EU (commissioned processing). However, even in this case, the data is processed in accordance with our high data protection standards and stored and processed exclusively on servers in Germany.

    All data collected and processed by us as part of an application process is protected against unauthorized access and manipulation by technical and organizational measures. The data and files transmitted to us are transferred in encrypted form to prevent misuse by third parties.

    A purely automated decision-making in the sense of Art. 22 DSGVO does not take place.

    Any consent you have given for the storage and use of your personal data and files can be revoked at any time with effect for the future. Please address your revocation to: ekvip automation GmbH, Nonnenstraße 37, 04229 Leipzig, Germany or by e-mail to

    Furthermore, you shall be entitled to the rights set out in sections 11 and 12.

    You are also welcome to send us unsolicited applications. Please ensure that the transmission method you choose is sufficiently secure. Sending an e-mail without a suitable encryption method is not recommended, as your data could then be read and used by unauthorized persons without much effort. Therefore, please use the offered possibility of the unsolicited application under:

    After successful completion of the application process, your data and files will continue to be used within the framework of an employment relationship. In this case, your data will be forwarded and processed to social insurance agencies, tax offices, the law & tax firm commissioned with payroll accounting, as well as to financial institutions for payment processing. In the case of participation in support measures or projects of the Federal Employment Agency or other institutions for company qualification, ekvip automation GmbH is entitled to transfer personal data to the corresponding institution, insofar as this is necessary for the purpose of the measures and/or is required by law.

    7. Analysis tools

    Tracking tools: The tracking measures listed below and used by us are carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DSGVO. With the tracking measures used, we want to ensure a needs-based design and continuous optimization of our website. On the other hand, we use the tracking measures to statistically record the use of our website and evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our offer for you. These interests are considered legitimate in the sense of the aforementioned provision.

    The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be found in the corresponding tracking tools.

    Google Analytics with anonymization function: We have integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function) on our website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, compilation and evaluation of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data on which website a data subject came to a website from (so-called referrers), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is predominantly used for the optimization of a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.

    The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

    We use the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned is shortened and anonymized by Google if access to our Internet pages is from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

    The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us showing the activities on our website, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.

    Google Analytics sets a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. By each call of one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically caused by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission calculations.

    By means of the cookie, personal information, for example the access time, the location from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject, is stored. Each time the data subject visits our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected via the technical procedure to third parties.

    The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time 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 used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.

    Furthermore, the data subject has the option to object to the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and related to the use of this website as well as to the processing of this data by Google and to prevent such processing. For this purpose, the data subject must download and install a browser add-on under the link httpss:// . This browser add-on tells Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about visits to Internet pages may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered by Google as an objection. If the information technology system of the data subject is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later point in time, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on in order to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the data subject or another person within the data subject's sphere of control, it is possible to reinstall or reactivate the browser add-on.

    Further information and the applicable privacy policy of Google can be found at httpss:// and at httpss:// . Google Analytics is explained in more detail at this link httpss:// .

    Google Adwords Conversion Tracking: We have integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to place ads both in Google's search engine results and in the Google advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to specify certain keywords in advance, by means of which an ad is displayed in Google's search engine results exclusively when the user retrieves a keyword-relevant search result using the search engine. In the Google advertising network, the ads are distributed to topic-relevant websites by means of an automatic algorithm and in compliance with the previously defined keywords.

    The operating company of the Google AdWords services is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

    The purpose of Google AdWords is to advertise our website by displaying interest-relevant advertisements on the websites of third-party companies and in the search engine results of the Google search engine and to display third-party advertisements on our website.

    If a data subject accesses our website via a Google ad, a so-called conversion cookie is stored by Google on the data subject's information technology system. What cookies are has already been explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and is not used to identify the data subject. The conversion cookie is used to track whether certain subpages, for example the shopping cart from an online store system, have been called up on our website, provided the cookie has not yet expired. Through the conversion cookie, both we and Google can track whether a data subject who has accessed our website via an AdWords ad has generated a sale, i.e. has completed or cancelled a purchase of goods.

    The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie are used by Google to create 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 optimize our AdWords ads for the future. Neither our company nor other advertisers of Google AdWords receive information from Google by means of which the data subject could be identified.

    By means of the conversion cookie, personal information, for example the internet pages visited by the data subject, is stored. Each time the data subject visits our website, personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected via the technical procedure to third parties.

    The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time 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 used would also prevent Google from setting a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.

    Furthermore, the data subject has the option to object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, the data subject must call up the link from any of the internet browsers he or she uses and make the desired settings there.

    Further information and the applicable privacy policy of Google can be found at httpss:// .

    HubSpot: We use HubSpot on this website and as a customer relationship management system (“CRM system”).

    9. Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)

    In order to display our content correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Web Fonts on this website (httpss:// Google Web Fonts are transferred to your browser's cache to avoid multiple loads. If the browser does not support Google Web Fonts or prevents access, content is displayed in a standard font. Calling up script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to Google's servers. Through this, Google obtains knowledge that our website was called up via your IP address. Google Web Fonts are used in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

    If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font is used by your computer. For more information about Google Web Fonts, see: and in Google's privacy policy: httpss://

    10. Social plugins from Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Xing and LinkedIn using the Shariff solution

    Social plugins ("plugins") from social networks are used on our website. In order to increase the protection of your data when visiting our website, the plugins are not unrestricted, but only integrated into the page using an HTML link (so-called "Shariff solution").

    The developer of the component is GitHub, Inc. 88 Colin P. Kelly Junior Street, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. More information and the applicable privacy policy of GitHub can be found at: httpss://  .

    This integration ensures that when you call up a page of our website that contains such plugins, no connection is yet established with the servers of the provider of the respective social network. If you click on one of the buttons, a new window of your browser opens and calls up the page of the respective service provider, on which you can (if necessary after entering your login data) e.g. press the Like or Share button.

    13. Legal basis of processing

    Article 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which a processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47, sentence 2 DS-GVO). If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is the performance of our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

    14. Duration for which the personal data are stored

    The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfillment or initiation of the contract.
