Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting our website. We take the security of your personal data seriously and would like to provide you with our online data protection principles. 

AT Zweirad GmbH considers the protection of your privacy to be of the utmost importance. Therefore, compliance with the legal provisions on data protection is a matter of course for us. Furthermore, it is important to us that you know at all times how we store which data and how we use it.

As a rule, it is possible to use our website without providing personal data. In the case of purely informational use of our website - i.e. if you do not register anywhere and do not send us any data - we only collect the data that your browser transmits to us for technical reasons. This includes, for example, your IP address. Insofar as additional personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail addresses) is collected on our pages, this is always done on a voluntary basis as far as possible. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

Application management d.vinci

§ 11 Application management d.vinci 

We are pleased that you are interested in us and that you are applying or have applied for a position in our company. We would like to provide you below with information on the processing of your personal data in connection with your application.

(1) What data of yours do we process? And for what purposes?


We process the data you have sent us in connection with your application in order to assess your suitability for the job (or other open positions in our companies, if applicable) and to carry out the application process. What is the legal basis for this?


The primary legal basis for the processing of your personal data in this application procedure is Section 26 of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) in the version applicable from 25.05.2018. According to this, the processing of data required in connection with the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship is permissible. 

Should the data be required for legal prosecution after completion of the application process, if applicable, data processing may be carried out on the basis of the requirements of Art. 6 DSGVO, in particular to safeguard legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. ) DSGVO. Our interest then consists in the assertion or defence of claims.

(2) How long is the data stored?


Data of applicants will be deleted after 6 months in case of rejection. In the event that you have agreed to further storage of your personal data, we will transfer your data to our applicant pool. There, the data will be deleted after two years. If you have been awarded a position during the application process, the data from the applicant data system will be transferred to our personnel information system.

(3) To which recipients is the data passed on?


We use a specialised software provider for the application process. This provider acts as a service provider for us and may also receive knowledge of your personal data in connection with the maintenance and care of the systems. We have concluded a so-called order processing agreement with this provider, which ensures that the data processing is carried out in a permissible manner. After receiving your application, your applicant data will be viewed by the HR department. Suitable applications are then forwarded internally to the person responsible for the respective open position. The further procedure is then coordinated. In principle, only those persons in the company have access to your data who need this for the proper course of our application procedure.


(4) Where is the data processed?


The data is processed exclusively in data processing centres in the Federal Republic of Germany.


(5) Your rights as a "data subject"


You have the right to information about the personal data we process about you. In the case of a request for information that is not made in writing, we ask for your understanding that we may then require evidence from you to prove that you are the person you claim to be. Furthermore, you have a right to correction or deletion or to restriction of processing, insofar as you are entitled to this by law. Furthermore, you have a right to object to processing within the scope of the law. The same applies to a right to data portability.
