Privacy notice

We are delighted that you are interested in our website. We take the protection of personal information very seriously and pay close attention to this aspect in our online activities. Our privacy policy complies with the applicable data protection legislation, in particular Germany’s Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz, BDSG) and Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz, TMG).

1. What is covered by data protection?

Data protection covers personal data. As defined in Section 3 para. 1 of the BDSG, personal data means any information concerning the personal or material circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes e.g. your name, postal address, email address or telephone number, but may also cover usage data like your IP address.

2. Gathering and storing personal details

You can visit our website without providing personal information. We will simply store your access data without any personal identifiers (usage data). This information is analyzed exclusively to improve our offering and does not enable us to identify you as an individual. In addition, we use your (previously anonymized) IP address to establish the country you are visiting our website from so that we can present you with the right language version. We do not store the anonymized IP address for this purpose.

Additional personal information, such as your name, address, telephone number and email address, which you provide voluntarily, e.g. during the recruitment process or when sending a request for information by email, will be used only for the purpose for which you provided the information.

We store personal details no longer than necessary to carry out the purpose (e.g. recruitment process) that you have requested or to which you have agreed, provided there are no legal obligations to do otherwise.

3. Web analysis using etracker

This website uses etracker technology to collect visitor behavior data. This data is collected anonymously to be used for marketing and optimization purposes. All visitor data is saved using an anonymous user ID and can be aggregated to a usage profile. Cookies may be used to collect and save this data, but the data remains strictly anonymous. The data will not be used to identify a visitor personally and are not aggregated with any personal data. The collection and storage of data may be refused at any time with respect to subsequent services.

5. Social networks, including Facebook

Our website offers social plugins for various social networks. If you sign in to a social network, e.g. Facebook, Twitter, XING or LinkedIn, your subsequent activity on our website will be forwarded to this social network.

If you are signed in to a social network while visiting our website, the social network will add this information to your profile. In this way, the social network is informed that our website has been visited from your IP address. If you are signed in to e.g. Facebook, you can create a link to content on our website in your Facebook profile by clicking on the “Like” button. It is then possible for Facebook to link your visit to our website to your Facebook account.

If you have one or more social network accounts and do not want the social networks to associate the information they receive via our website with your account details, you need to sign out of any social networks before visiting our website.

We, the website provider, have no influence over data capture and data transmission carried out by social plugins. Please read the privacy policies published by the social networks for information on the capture and transmission of personal data.


6. Data security

We secure our website and other systems with up-to-date technical and organizational measures to prevent your data being lost, destroyed, accessed, modified or disseminated by unauthorized persons. When sending personal data, we make use of encryption technology to ensure extremely high levels of confidentiality. Our servers use various security mechanisms and permission processes to make unauthorized access difficult. You should keep your access information secret at all times and close your browser window once you have finished communicating with Brose. This will ensure that no one apart from you can access your personal data if you share your computer with other people.

7. Links

Our website may include links to third-party websites that publish content over which we have no influence. We are therefore unable to accept liability for this third-party content. The content of linked sites remains the responsibility of the provider or operator of the sites in question. Linked sites were checked for possible statutory violations at the time the link was created. No illegal content was identified at this time. However, it is unreasonable to expect us to monitor the content of linked sites continuously without concrete indication of wrongdoing. If we become aware of any violation, we will immediately remove the links in question.

8. Right of access to information and right to revoke consent

You have the right to receive information about your stored personal data free of charge on request. You also have the right to correct incorrect information, and to block or delete your personal data, provided there are no legal obligations to retain data that prevent this.
