02 Cookies

In order to make visiting our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies on various pages. These are small text files that are stored on your end device. Some of the cookies we use are deleted after the end of the browser session, i.e. after you close your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your device and enable us or our partner companies (third-party cookies) to recognize your browser on your next visit (persistent cookies).

If cookies are set, they collect and process certain user information such as browser and location data as well as IP address values to an individual extent. Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period, which may vary depending on the cookie.

If personal data is also processed by individual cookies used by us, the processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR for the execution of the contract, in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR in the case of consent given or in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR to safeguard our legitimate interests in the best possible functionality of the website and a customer-friendly and effective design of the page visit.

If we work together with the aforementioned advertising partners, you will be informed individually and separately about the use of such cookies and the scope of the information collected in each case in the following paragraphs.

Please note that you can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and can decide individually whether to accept them or to exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general.

We reserve the right to delete comments if they are objected to as unlawful by third parties.

05 Use of your data for direct marketing: e-mail newsletter & letter post

5.1 Registration for our e-mail newsletter

If you subscribe to our e-mail newsletter, we will send you regular information about our offers. The only mandatory information for sending the newsletter is your e-mail address. The provision of further data is voluntary and is used to address you personally. We use the so-called double opt-in procedure for sending the newsletter. This means that we will only send you an e-mail newsletter if you have expressly confirmed to us that you consent to receiving the newsletter. We will then send you a confirmation e-mail asking you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter in future by clicking on a corresponding link.

By activating the confirmation link, you give us your consent to the use of your personal data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. When you register for the newsletter, we store your IP address entered by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) as well as the date and time of registration in order to be able to trace any possible misuse of your e-mail address at a later date. The data collected by us when you register for the newsletter will be used exclusively for the purpose of advertising by means of the newsletter. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time via the link provided in the newsletter or by sending a message to the controller named at the beginning. Once you have unsubscribed, your e-mail address will be deleted from our newsletter distribution list immediately, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use data beyond this, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this declaration.

5.2 Sending the e-mail newsletter to existing customers

If you have provided us with your e-mail address when purchasing goods or services, we reserve the right to regularly send you offers for similar goods or services to those already purchased from our range by e-mail. In accordance with Section 7 (3) UWG, we do not need to obtain separate consent from you for this. In this respect, data processing is carried out solely on the basis of our legitimate interest in personalized direct advertising in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If you have initially objected to the use of your email address for this purpose, we will not send you any emails. You are entitled to object to the use of your email address for the aforementioned advertising purpose at any time with effect for the future by sending a message to the controller named at the beginning. You will only incur transmission costs for this in accordance with the basic rates. Upon receipt of your objection, the use of your e-mail address for advertising purposes will be discontinued immediately.

5.3 Advertising by letter post

On the basis of our legitimate interest in personalized direct advertising, we reserve the right to store your first and last name, your postal address and – if we have received this additional information from you as part of the contractual relationship – your title, academic degree, year of birth and your professional, industry or business name in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR and to use them to send you interesting offers and information about our products by post.

You can object to the storage and use of your data for this purpose at any time by sending a corresponding message to info@tanner.de.

06 Use of YouTube videos

This website uses the YouTube embedding function to display and play videos from the provider “YouTube”, which belongs to Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”).

The extended data protection mode is used here, which, according to the provider, only initiates the storage of user information when the video(s) is/are played. If the playback of embedded YouTube videos is started, the provider “YouTube” uses cookies to collect information about user behavior. According to information from “YouTube”, these are used, among other things, to record video statistics, improve user-friendliness and prevent abusive behavior. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account when you click on a video. If you do not wish to be associated with your YouTube profile, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and analyzes them. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR on the basis of Google’s legitimate interests in the display of personalized advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube to exercise this right. When using YouTube, personal data may also be transmitted to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.

Regardless of whether the embedded videos are played, a connection to the Google network is established each time this website is accessed, which may trigger further data processing operations without our influence.

Further information on data protection at “YouTube” can be found in the provider’s privacy policy at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy

Insofar as legally required, we have obtained your consent to the processing of your data as described above in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your revocation, please follow the option described above for making an objection.

07 Use of Google Ads conversion tracking

This website uses the online advertising program “Google Ads” and, as part of Google Ads, the conversion tracking of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”). We use Google Ads to draw attention to our attractive offers on external websites with the help of advertising material (so-called Google Adwords). We can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are in relation to the advertising campaign data. Our aim is to show you advertising that is of interest to you, to make our website more interesting for you and to achieve a fair calculation of the advertising costs incurred.

The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your end device. These cookies generally lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the websites of Google Ads customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for Google Ads customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can block this use by deactivating the Google Conversion Tracking cookie via your Internet browser under the keyword “User settings”. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.

We use Google Ads on the basis of our legitimate interest in targeted advertising in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. As part of the use of Google Ads, personal data may also be transmitted to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.

Additionally, health-related information may be required, which must receive special consideration in terms of labor and social law protections for the applicant.
The specific components required for consideration in individual applications and the format for submitting these components via email can be found in the respective job posting.

Upon receipt of applications sent using the provided email contact address, applicant data is stored by us and evaluated solely for the purpose of processing the application. For any queries arising during the processing, we will use either the email address provided by the applicant with their application or a provided telephone number, at our discretion.

The legal basis for these processes, including contacting for queries, is generally Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR in conjunction with § 26 para. 1 BDSG, in which the progression of the application process is considered as initiation of an employment contract.

Where special categories of personal data as defined in Art. 9 para. 1 GDPR (e.g., health data such as information about disability status) are requested from applicants in the course of the application process, processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 9 para. 2 lit. b GDPR, enabling us to exercise rights arising from labor law and social security and social protection law, and to fulfill our related obligations.

If, following the aforementioned evaluation, the applicant is not selected or if an applicant withdraws their application prematurely, the data transmitted via email, along with any electronic correspondence including the original application email, will be deleted no later than 6 months after notification. This timeframe is based on our legitimate interest in being able to answer any follow-up questions regarding the application and, if necessary, to fulfill our obligations of evidence under regulations for equal treatment of applicants.

Upon submission of the form, applicant data is transmitted to us in an encrypted manner according to state-of-the-art technology, stored by us, and evaluated solely for the purpose of processing the application.

The legal basis for these processes is generally Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR in conjunction with § 26 para. 1 BDSG, in which the progression of the application process is considered as initiation of an employment contract.

Where special categories of personal data as defined in Art. 9 para. 1 GDPR (e.g., health data such as information about disability status) are requested from applicants in the course of the application process, processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 9 para. 2 lit. b GDPR, enabling us to exercise rights arising from labor law and social security and social protection law, and to fulfill our related obligations.
Alternatively, processing of special categories of data may also be based on Art. 9 para. 1 lit. h GDPR, if it serves purposes of preventive or occupational medicine, for assessing the applicant’s working capacity, for medical diagnosis, for the provision of health or social care or treatment, or for the management of health or social care systems and services.

If, following the aforementioned evaluation, the applicant is not selected or if an applicant withdraws their application prematurely, the data transmitted via the form will be deleted no later than 6 months after notification. This timeframe is based on our legitimate interest in being able to answer any follow-up questions regarding the application and, if necessary, to fulfill our obligations of evidence under regulations for equal treatment of applicants.

In the event of a successful application, the provided data will be further processed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR in conjunction with § 26 para. 1 BDSG for the purposes of implementing the employment relationship.
