7. Security Of Data
We use reasonable technical and organisational methods to safeguard your information, for example, by password protecting (via usernames and passwords unique to you) certain parts of the Sites and by using SSL encryption and firewalls to protect against unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration or destruction.

9. Service Providers, Plugins and Tools
JE may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate the Website, to provide the Website on our behalf, to perform website-related services or to assist us in analyzing how the Website is used ("Service Providers").
These Service Providers have access to your Personal Data only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.
JE may use social media plugins to enable a better user experience with the use of the Website
JE uses the YouTube video platform operated by YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave. San Bruno, CA 94066 USA. YouTube is a platform that enables playback of audio and video files.
If you visit one of our pages featuring a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. Here the YouTube server is informed about which of our pages you have visited.
If you’re logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube allows you to associate your browsing behavior directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
YouTube is used to help make our website appealing. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.
For information about the scope and purpose of data collection, the further processing and use of the data by YouTube and your rights and the settings you can configure to protect your privacy, please refer to the YouTube Privacy Guidelines.
JE may use Service Providers to monitor and analyze the use of the Website.
JE uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service. It is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
Google Analytics cookies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its website and its advertising.
If you would like to opt-out of Google Analytics monitoring your behavior on the Website, please use this link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/.
We have activated the IP anonymization feature on this website. Your IP address will be shortened by Google within the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services regarding website activity and Internet usage for the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.
You can prevent these cookies being stored by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. However, we wish to point out that doing so may mean you will not be able to enjoy the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the data generated by cookies about your use of the website (incl. your IP address) from being passed to Google, and the processing of these data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
Objecting to the Collection of Data
We have entered into an agreement with Google for the outsourcing of our data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
This website uses Google Analytics' demographic features. This allows reports to be generated containing statements about the age, gender, and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. This collected data cannot be attributed to any specific individual person. You can disable this feature at any time by adjusting the ads settings in your Google account or you can forbid the collection of your data by Google Analytics as described in the section "Refusal of data collection".
This website uses Google Tag Manager. This service allows website tags to be managed via an interface. Google Tag Manager only implements tags. This means that no cookies are set and no personal data is recorded. Google Tag Manager triggers other tags which, in turn, may record data. However, Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If tags have been disabled at the domain or cookie level, this remains in place for all tracking tags if these are implemented with Google Tag Manager. You can find out more about Google Tag Manager by clicking the following link: http://www.google.de/tagmanager/use-policy.html.
JE may use online marketing tool to display adverts on the Website.
Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google server. We have no control over the extent and further use of the data collected by the use of this tool by Google and therefore inform you to the best of our knowledge: By including DoubleClick, Google receives the information that you access the corresponding part of our website or clicked an ad from us. If you are registered with a service provided by Google, Google may associate the visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is a chance that the provider will find and store your IP address.
You can prevent participation in this tracking process in several ways: a) by adjusting your browser software accordingly, in particular, the suppression of third-party cookies will prevent you from receiving any third party advertisements; b) by disabling the cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain “www.googleadservices.com”, https://www.google.com/settings/ads, this setting is deleted when you delete your cookies; c) by deactivating the interest-based advertisements of the providers that are part of the “About Ads” self-regulation campaign via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices, this setting being deleted when you delete your cookies; d) by permanent deactivation in your browsers Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome under the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the features of this offer in full.
JE may use online web fonts to display display texts and fonts on the Website.
For uniform representation of fonts, this page uses web fonts provided by Google. When you open a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.
If you would like to receive our newsletter, we require a valid email address as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified email address and that you agree to receive this newsletter. No additional data is collected or is only collected on a voluntary basis. We only use this data to send the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.
We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO. You can revoke consent to the storage of your data and email address as well as their use for sending the newsletter at any time, e.g. through the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.
The data provided when registering for the newsletter will be used to distribute the newsletter until you cancel your subscription when said data will be deleted. Data we have stored for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members area) remain unaffected.
Newsletter tracking (also referred to as Web beacons or tracking pixels) is used if users have given their explicit prior consent. When the newsletter is dispatched, the external server can then record certain data related to the recipient, such as the time and date the newsletter is retrieved, the IP address or details regarding the e-mail program (client) used. The name of the image file is personalised for every email recipient by a unique ID being appended to it. The sender of the email notes which ID belongs to which email address and is thus able to determine which newsletter recipient has just opened the email when the image is called.
Cookie Compliance Solution
JE currently use a cookie solution provided by Optanon (https//www.optanon.com).
By selecting the ‘Privacy Settings’ button available on each Website page, you can learn more about the cookies we use to enhance your Website experience, and you can choose not to allow some types of cookies to be set. However, please note that opting out of certain cookies may impact your Website experience, and certain services provided on our Website may no longer be available.

By means of this recruitment application system, you can create a profile and apply for a specific vacancy. Via the use of this application and submission of related information, you can provide personal data to JE in connection with the recruiting process.

- Further Information on the Processing of Your Data
When you apply to us, we process the information we receive from you as part of the application process, e.g. by letter of application, CV, references, correspondence, telephone or verbal information. In addition to your contact details, information about your education, your qualifications, your work experience and your skills are of particular relevance to us. We will judge you only by your suitability for the respective position, so that you do not have to send us a photo.
Your data will initially be processed exclusively for the purpose of the application procedure. If your application is successful, it will be used in your personnel file and for the execution and termination of the employment relationship and deleted in accordance with the regulations applicable to personnel files. If we are currently unable to offer you employment, we will continue to process your data for up to six months after the cancellation has been sent in order to defend ourselves against possible legal claims, in particular due to alleged discrimination in the application process. Your data will initially be accessible to our human resources department, but also to the specialist department of the position to which you have applied, the works council, the equal opportunities officer, and, if required, the institute management and the accounting department. Our administrators and contractors have the technically necessary possibility to access data processed by means of IT. These are strictly bound by our instructions and may not process the data for their own purposes. In certain cases, we may be required to disclose your personal data to third parties, for example to our bank if you receive a refund or to the post office if we communicate with you by letter.
The legal basis for data processing in the application procedure and as part of the personnel file are § 26 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 BDSG [Federal Data Protection Act] and Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Letter b GDPR and, if you have given your consent, for example by sending information not necessary for the application procedure, Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Paragraph 1 Letter a GDPR. The legal basis for data processing after a refusal is Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 letter f GDPR. The legal basis for budgetary and tax law storage is Art. 6 para. 1 para. 1 lit. c GDPR i.V.m. § 147 AO. The legitimate interest in processing on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 para. 1 letter f GDPR is the defense against legal claims.
As a rule, we do not require any special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 GDPR for the application process. We ask you not to send us any such information from the outset. If such information is exceptionally relevant to the application process, we will process it together with your other applicant data. This may include, for example, information about a severe disability which you may voluntarily provide us with and which we must then process in order to fulfil our special obligations with regard to severely disabled persons. In these cases, processing serves the exercise of rights or the fulfilment of legal obligations under labor law, social security law and social protection. The legal basis for data processing is then Art. 9 Para. 2 lit. b GDPR, §§ 26 Para. 3 BDSG [Federal Data Protection Act], 164 SGB [Criminal Code] IX. In exceptional cases it may be necessary to obtain information about your health or a disability or information from the Federal Central Register, i.e. about previous convictions, in order to assess your suitability for the intended activity. The legal basis for this is § 26 BDSG [Federal Data Protection Act].
Your data will neither be used by us for automated decision making or profiling nor passed on to third parties. Your data will be processed by us or on our behalf exclusively in Germany.
- Voluntarily provide your data
You are not obliged to provide us with personal data. However, we can only assess your suitability for the position in question if we receive information about your education, work experience and skills in particular, and we cannot include you in the application process without your contact details.
- Your rights
According to the Basic Data Protection Ordinance you have
- the right to information free of charge,
- the right to rectification, deletion or limitation of processing,
- the right to object to the processing,
- a right to data transferability.
As far as a processing of your personal data is based on art. 6 para. 1 para. 1 lit. e or f GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing according to art. 21 GDPR. If your objection is made for reasons arising from your particular situation, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing, which outweigh your interests, rights and the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. If your objection is directed against direct advertising, including profiling, insofar as it is connected with such direct advertising, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes; however, we do not process applicant data for advertising purposes anyway.
Please contact us with your request using the above contact details and also have the right to complain us at dataprotection(a)johnsonelectric.com. If you have any questions or requests regarding data protection, please do not hesitate to contact us.
