2. Handling of personal data
The full extent of the collection and processing of your personal data is for specific purposes, and depends on numerous factors, such as the services you use, the services we provide and you use, and the nature and extent of the business relationship with you.  

Personal data is defined as data that allows conclusions to be drawn about you. This primarily includes personal information (name, address, date of birth, contact details, etc.)

2.1 Use of links
This website contains links to other websites. If you click on such a link that leads to third-party websites, please note that these websites have their own data protection provisions in place. Please check the data protection regulations when using these websites, as we accept no responsibility or liability for third-party websites.

2.2 Use of online contact form
The contact form on our website is used to contact us or to submit your comments, which will be forwarded to the relevant specialist department for the purpose of processing your inquiry. 

In this context, first and last name, e-mail address and company, subject and your message to us are collected for the purpose of establishing contact and maintaining customer relations. We shall not pass on this data without your consent, unless this is necessary to fulfill the contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures. 

2.3 Using the online application form
The personal data entered by you as part of the online application process using the electronic input form and thus provided voluntarily is used exclusively for the purpose of accepting applications for an advertised position.

In this context, your title, first and last name, e-mail address, postcode/location, message and attached application documents shall be collected.

Your application documents, even if you send an unsolicited application by e-mail (, will be carefully and individually reviewed by our Human Resources department at the company headquarters in Berneck. We ensure that all your personal data is treated confidentially, and is only passed on to the contact persons in the respective branches and specialist departments within the Sieber Group for which you have applied.

2.4 Using the customer login for document management and Customer Center
Our customer login is used to retrieve outsourcing documents (document management) and to record customer orders (Customer Center). 

In this context, your data – which you have already submitted to us when registering via the login e-mail – will be collected.

3. Disclosure to third parties
Personal data will only be passed on if permitted by law, and if this is necessary to fulfill a contract, to fulfill legal obligations, to respond to an inquiry or to carry out an order, or if you are interested in a position in one of our group companies.

Within the company, only those departments or employees receive your data that require it, in order to fulfill the contract, to fulfill legal obligations or to protect interests. If a group company fulfills these tasks, your data will be forwarded to the company concerned. If data is forwarded to a group company outside the European Union, we ensure that European data security standards are always maintained. Data is forwarded outside the European Union, for example, if you apply for a position in a group company outside the European Union or send inquiries to such companies.

Your data will not be passed on to other uninvolved third parties, nor will we sell it to commercial users for advertising purposes.

4. Data deletion and retention period
Your personal data will only be stored for as long as is necessary and lawful; otherwise, within the scope of the retention obligations prescribed by law. In addition, your data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the necessary purpose (e.g. in the context of a contractual relationship) unless, as mentioned, there are legal (corporate and/or tax) retention obligations that apply. 

5. Rights of the data subject
With regard to your data stored by us, you shall generally be entitled to the rights of the disclosure of information of your data, as well as its correction, deletion, restriction, data portability, revocation and objection. If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or your data protection claims have otherwise been violated in any way, you may assert your rights as a data subject directly via the contact details listed in section 1.

The Sieber Group takes appropriate measures to ensure that personal data is adequately protected.

However, the Sieber Group cannot accept any liability for the security of data transmission on the Internet; in particular, there is a risk of access by third parties when data is transmitted by e-mail.
