On ELWEMA Automotive GmbH’s (hereinafter referred to as “ELWEMA”) website some of your personal data will be collected. It is obligatory and natural for ELWEMA to only collect, process and use this data in accordance with the relevant regulations governing the protection of personal data for the purpose of contract processing and the preservation of legitimate internal business interests with regard to the service and support for internet users and interested people. Which data will be collected by ELWEMA and how ELWEMA uses such data can be found in the following information:

1. Data-gathering and processing

If the user visits ELWEMA’s website information concerning all access to the website and all accesses to files stored on the website will be logged in an access protocol. Such protocol data will only be stored for internal system performance and statistical purposes for the operation, safety and optimisation of ELWEMA’s website. In this context the provider of ELWEMA’s website automatically collects and stores information in so-called Server-Log-Files, which your browser automatically transfers to ELWEMA. These Server-Log-Files contain the following data:

• browser-type / browser-version of the des accessing device,

• used operating system of the accessing device,

• referrer-URL (the previously visited website),

• IP-address and hostname of the accessing computer / device,

• name of the accessed website and the accessed file,

• access time and data volume as well as

• date and time of the server inquiry.

This data cannot be assigned to specific individuals and it will not be combined with other data sources. ELWEMA reserves the right to review this data at a later time if ELWEMA becomes aware of specific indications for unlawful use.

2. Use and disclosure of personal data

ELWEMA will only use your personal data, i.e. according to Section 3, paragraph 1 of the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz – BDSG) individual information concerning the personal or material circumstances of an identified or identifiable individual, which according to the current case law also includes the IP-address, for contract processing as well as customer- and technical-administration. Your personal data will only be forwarded to a third party if this is necessary for contract processing and for billing purposes or if you expressly consented thereto beforehand. You have the right to revoke the consent granted in this respect at any time by sending an e-mail to, with effect for the future. The deletion of the personal data stored is carried out if you revoke your consent for the storage, if knowledge of the same is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of the purpose pursued or if the storage of the same is or will be inadmissible on other legal grounds.

Users, who have forwarded their telephone number and/or e-mail-address and/or further contact data to ELWEMA and have separately agreed to their personal data being used in accordance with the relevant regulations governing the protection of personal data for ELWEMA’s own advertising purposes, may be contacted by ELWEMA via telephone, e-mail or letter to be informed about special offers. If the user wants to revoke his consent the user can send an e-mail to the aforementioned e-mail-address of ELWEMA.

In case of inquiries via ELWEMA’s website or contact data transmitted via e-mail (e.g. name, address and e-mail-address) will only be used by ELWEMA for processing the inquiry and for follow-up purposes. ELWEMA will not provide this data to a third party without the user’s permission.

In case of application documents and other documents proactively transmitted or transmitted to ELWEMA as a response to a job offer via e-mail, the data safety during data transfer cannot be completely guaranteed.

It is pointed out that unencrypted e-mails transmitted via the internet are not sufficiently protected against unauthorized access by third parties. In general, an unencrypted e-mail is technically not a safe way of communication. ELWEMA therefore recommends the use of an encryption or a postal service for the transfer of confidential information and documents.
