Some of the cookies we use are immediately deleted after you close your browser (‘session cookies’). Other cookies remain on your device and allow us to recognise your browser when you next visit (‘persistent cookies’).
You can delete all of the cookies stored on your device, and the most popular browsers have settings that can prevent the storage of cookies.

3. Legal basis for data processing
We always process your personal data in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG new).
Below you can read a description of the legal basis on which we process your personal data. Please note that these details are examples only and do not represent a complete or exhaustive list of the possible legal basis for data processing.

Consent (article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR)
We process certain personal data only with your prior, explicit consent. This is the case, for example, if you have agreed that we may send advertising or promotional information in electronic format. You are entitled to revoke your consent at any time in order to stop the continued processing of this data.
Fulfilment of a contract with you (article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR)
Data processing is necessary in order to fulfil a contract or to complete pre-contractual measures. Sinn Spezialuhren processes your personal data solely in order to meet the legal obligations resulting from such contracts.
Fulfilment of a legal obligation (article 6(1)(c) of the GDPR)
Sinn Spezialuhren is subject to a range of legal requirements. In order to comply with these requirements, we need to process certain personal data.
Protection of the legitimate interests of Sinn Spezialuhren or a third party (article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR)
Sinn Spezialuhren processes certain personal data in order to safeguard your legitimate interests or the interests of third parties. However, this only happens in individual cases if your interests as data subject do not have priority over the interests of Sinn Spezialuhren.


4. Recipients or categories of recipients of personal data
As a rule, Sinn Spezialuhren ensures that your personal data is accessible only to a limited number of authorised persons who need to know this information in line with the purposes of processing outlined above.
Your personal data is not disclosed, sold or otherwise transmitted to third parties unless this is necessary for the purpose of fulfilling the contract with you or you have given your express consent to such transmission.
We also employ external contractors when processing your enquiries and providing access to our services. These service providers are contractually obliged to comply with data protection regulations, and they process personal data only in line with our instructions.
Under these conditions, the recipients of personal data may include service providers, processors or other third parties tasked with providing the following services:
– Support and maintenance of IT and telecommunications systems
– Data destruction
– Debt recovery and payment processing
– Customer relationship management
– Marketing
– Website management
– Media technology
– Payments
– Purchasing and procurement

All data processing takes place in Germany or member states of the European Union. Should any personal data that we collect or process about you be shared with recipients located outside the European Economic Area (EEA), we have taken appropriate action to ensure compliance with the Data Protection Regulation, such as concluding appropriate EU model contract clauses, obtaining Privacy Shield certification (US), and implementing recognised codes of conduct or certification mechanisms under article 42 of the GDPR.


5. Duration of data storage
In accordance with article 17(1)(a) of the GDPR, your personal data is routinely deleted if it is no longer necessary for fulfilment of contract and no longer subject to statutory retention periods.
Instead of being deleted, data is blocked if there are legal or factual obstacles to deletion, for instance in the case of special commercial or tax-related retention obligations, to preserve evidence under a statute of limitations or to deal with outstanding claims.
In principle, we delete applicants’ data three months after the employment decision has been made by Sinn Spezialuhren or after candidates reject an offer from Sinn Spezialuhren. Sinn Spezialuhren may retain your application data for two years if you have agreed to be considered for other positions at Sinn Spezialuhren.


6. Automated decision-making processes
As a rule, we do not use automated decision-making processes under article 25 of the GDPR to justify and manage the business relationship. If such processes are used in individual cases, we will inform you about this separately in advance to the extent required by law.


7. Data security
Sinn Spezialuhren has taken appropriate technical and organisational measures to prevent the unauthorised or unlawful disclosure of your personal data and unauthorised or unlawful access to your personal data as well as the inadvertent or unlawful loss, destruction or modification of your personal data and any damage. These measures ensure a level of security that corresponds to the risks involved in processing and the nature of the personal data to be protected. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with developments in technology.


8. Your rights as data subject
a) Information
On request and at no cost, you may receive information about the personal data we have stored about you at any time.
b) Rectification, deletion, restriction of processing (blocking) and objection
If you no longer agree that your personal data may be stored or if this information is no longer correct, we will have your data deleted or blocked with appropriate notice or make the necessary corrections (to the extent possible under the applicable law). The same applies if we receive the instruction to restrict processing with future effect.
c) Data portability
Upon request, we will provide you with your data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format so that you can share this information with another controller if desired.

You are entitled to lodge a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority:
(https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html).
e) The right to revoke consent with future effect
You are able to revoke any consent given at any time with future effect. Your withdrawal of consent does not affect the legality of any data processing carried out with your consent before the time of revocation.
f) Restrictions
In cases where we are unable to identify the data subject of information, for instance if it has been made anonymous for analysis purposes, the rights outlined above do not apply. It may be possible to exercise the right to information, deletion, blocking, correction or transfer to another company with respect to such information if you provide us with additional information that allows us to identify the data subject.
g) Exercising your rights as data subject
If you have any questions concerning the processing of your personal data, or if you would like to exercise your right to information, correction, blocking, objection or deletion with respect to your personal data, or to have it transferred to another company, please contact datenschutz@sinn.de.
