You can visit our website without providing any personal information. We will only store access-related data that does not refer to individual persons, e.g. the name of your Internet Service Provider; the website that directed you to us and the web pages you view with us; the names of files you request; and the date and duration of your visit.

For the use of some services a prior registration is necessary, where you have to add your name, address, email address, telephone number etc. You have the option of reviewing, updating, withdrawing or deleting your data at any time under the user data you have added and used for the respective service (for more on the system’s deletion of personal data, see Point 1 of this Data Privacy Statement, “Data deletion”). You are responsible for ensuring that this data is correct and truthful. Personal data will only be collected while using the respective service if and to the extent that you provide us with the relevant data via the respective service.

Online applicant portal
You can apply for jobs with CHEMETALL GmbH electronically via our online applicant portal. To do so, you must register as a user on our website by choosing a personal user name and password. You have the option of reviewing, updating, withdrawing or deleting your data at any time under the user data you have selected (for more on the system’s deletion of personal data, see Point 1 of this Data Privacy Statement, “Data deletion”). You are responsible for ensuring that this data is correct and truthful. Per-sonal data will only be collected while using our online applicant portal if and to the extent that you provide us with the relevant data via the online applicant portal. We will exclusively use the personal data that you provide for the purpose of processing your application. Your data will only be shared internally with persons who require access to your personal data in order to fill a position. As a rule, these are employees from the Human Resources department and the respective specialized department. We will not share your personal data with third parties unless you have given us advance permission to do so or unless a binding official/legal requirement exists. Persons whom we have hired to operate the online applicant portal will exclusively process personal data on our behalf, so that control of and responsibility for your personal data remains with us.
The online applicant portal also offers interested parties the option of receiving elec-tronic job listings by email, according to customized selection criteria. Interested par-ties will then be informed automatically about our job listings that correspond to the selected criteria. Registration for our job listing notices takes place using a “double opt-in” procedure. The double opt-in procedure requires two registration steps. In the first step, the interested party must register for the job notification service on our website (first opt-in). In the second step, the interested party must confirm his or her regis-tration for the newsletter (second opt-in). For confirmation purposes, a confirmation message will be sent to the email address provided during registration, containing a confirmation link. Only after the confirmation link has been activated the interested party will receive job notifications. In order to stop receiving these job notifications or to change the selection criteria, the interested party can make the relevant status changes in the online applicant portal by entering his or her user data.
The commercial use, processing and transmission of personal data – in the absence of express additional permission – will exclusively take place in the context of the statutory provisions. You can withdraw the right to process and use personal data for advertising purposes at any time by sending us an informal notification. To declare such a withdrawal, please use the contact information provided under Point 6 of this Data Privacy Statement.
Legislators have established a wide range of retention obligations and retention peri-ods. Once these periods have elapsed, the corresponding data is routinely deleted. If this does not affect personal data, such data will be deleted as soon as the respective intended use no longer applies.
We will delete any personal data that you have provided for a specific job listing via our online applicant portal as soon as it is no longer needed for the specific application process. You can use the profile you have created in our online applicant portal for twelve months. We will automatically delete your profile and the personal data saved in it after twelve months. You will not be notified separately of this deletion.
