Privacy Policy

Dear visitor of our internet presence,

We are delighted to welcome you on our website. To make your stay safe and pleasant, we want to inform you about the handling of your data. The following privacy policy is intended to inform you about our practices regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal information. SWARCO AG is responsible for this website.

Protecting your privacy is very important to us. Therefore we have designed our website in a way that it can be used anonymously. The information we obtain and store during your visit to our website, is only used for internal purposes and to improve the design of the website. An exception is made in the case of the necessity to defend attacks that constitute a criminal offense or interfere with the functionality of our website. For this purpose only we collect the IP address of your computer for a period of seven days, which is a safety measure in concordance with § 100 p. 1 TKG.

Usage data
When you visit our web pages so-called usage data is temporarily stored in a protocol for statistical purposes on our web server to improve the quality of our website. This data set consists of

  • the page from which the requested file was called,
  • the name of the file,
  • the date and time of the request,
  • the amount of data transferred,
  • the access status (file transferred, file not found),
  • the description of the type of browser used,
  • the IP address of the requesting computer shortened by the last three digits.

We use this information to allow you to access our website, for the control and administration of our systems and to improve the design of the website. The retrieved data is stored anonymously in accordance with the German Telemedia Act (TMG). The creation of personal user profiles is therefore not possible. Data about individuals or their individual behaviour is not collected.

Transfer of data to third parties
On principle we do not transfer your personal data to anyone outside our group of companies.

You can contact us via the specified email addresses. Should you provide us with personal data in this process, we will store, process and use it only to answer your request.

Cookies are small files that are stored on the hard drive of a visitor's computer. They allow for holding available information over a certain period of time and to identify the visitor's computer. For a better user experience and individual performance representation, we use permanent cookies. Furthermore, we use so-called session cookies that are automatically deleted when you close your browser. You can configure your browser so that it informs you when cookies are placed. This way the use of cookies becomes transparent for you.

Google Analytics
For tailoring our site we create pseudonymous user profiles with the help of Google Analytics. Google Analytics uses cookies, text files that are stored on your computer to help analyse your use of the website. The information generated by cookies in connection with your use of this website will generally be transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Since IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be truncated by Google within Member States of the European Union or other parties that are a member of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases shall the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for us, and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage.

You may object to the creation of pseudonymous user profiles at any time. There are several options:

  1. One way to prevent the analysis by Google Analytics, is an opt-out cookie which instructs Google not to save your data for the purpose of web analytics. Please note that this solution only works as long as the opt-out cookie is stored by the browser. If you want to activate the opt-out cookie now, please click here.
  2. You may refuse the saving of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser.
  3. Depending on the browser you use, you have the option to install a browser plug-in that prevents tracking. For this please click here and follow the instructions to install the browser plugin.

Contact form
You have the opportunity to contact us via a web form under Contact. To use our contact form, we require your name, telephone number and e-mail address. You may enter more details, but this is not obligatory. Your data will be processed only to answer your inquiry and deleted after a certain period of time. We will not disclose any of your data to third parties.

Online Resume
We process your personal data in accordance with data protection regulations, in particular the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).

You specify the amount of data that you want to provide to us as part of your online job application. Online applications are electronically transmitted to our HR Department. The transmission is encrypted. Normally, applications will be forwarded to the head of the relevant departments in our house. Your data is not circulated further. Your information will be kept confidential in our house.

We process the data that you provide as part of your online application exclusively for the purpose of selecting applicants. Your data will not be processed for any other purpose. In the case that we should consider your application with other or future vacancies, we ask for a corresponding note on the application.

To protect your data against unauthorized access, we use encryption on most of our pages. Your information will be transferred from your computer to our server and vice versa via the internet using a 128-bit SSL encryption (Secure Socket Layer). If the address begins with https:// and the browser shows a closed padlock icon the connection is encrypted. We may abstain from using an encrypted connection when exchanging publicly available information.
