Privacy Policy of URT Umwelt- und Recyclingtechnik GmbH

  1. preamble

    We are pleased about your visit on the website of our company. Protection of information and in particular data protection is of great importance to our management. In principle, you can use this website without providing any personal data. Should you disclose data to us in connection with the processing described below, we will treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations of the European Union and the Federal Republic of Germany as well as this data protection declaration.
    URT Umwelt- und Recyclingtechnik GmbH, as the data controller, has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as completely as possible. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can in principle have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, you as the person concerned are free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, such as telephone or post.

  2. Definitions

    URT Umwelt- und Recyclingtechnik GmbH's data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European directives and ordinances when the general data protection regulation (GDPR) was issued. Detailed definitions can be found in Art. 4 GDPR. Essentially, these are the following terms, described here in simplified form:

    (a) Personal data:
    This is all information which is available to us as the person responsible for determining you as a natural person (e.g. name, address, e-mail, telephone number, IP address).

    b) Person concerned:
    This is you as a natural person, if we have identified you.

    c) Processing:
    Processing is any collection, storage, further processing, forwarding, archiving and deletion of data. It is irrelevant whether the process is automated using IT systems or carried out manually (e.g. by letter).

    d) Restriction of processing:
    Limitation of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.

    (e) Profiling:
    Profiling is any form of automated processing of your data consisting of using this data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to you. In particular, to analyse or predict aspects relating to your work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, behaviour, location or change of location.

    f) Pseudonymisation:
    This is a process to identify your personal data. Furthermore, only this identifier is used and without the source key or a "reference database" this pseudonym cannot be resolved (e.g. allocation of a customer number).

    g) Responsible person:
    The person responsible or responsible for the processing is URT Umwelt- und Recyclingtechnik GmbH with whom you have a contractual relationship. It is crucial that we are able to decide independently on the processing methods and means.

    h) Contract processors:
    A contract processor is a company name which has been commissioned by URT Umwelt- und Recyclingtechnik GmbH to support you in the collection, processing, storage, forwarding or deletion of your data. These are usually IT service providers, but also waste disposal companies, which are, for example, commissioned with the destruction of files.

    i) Consent:
    Consent is any expression of will given by you for a specific individual case. You will be fully informed of what you agree to.

    b) Art. 16 Right to rectification
    If we should process wrong data from you, you can have these corrected at any time with your contact person.

    c) Art. 17 Right of erasure
    You have the right to demand the deletion of your personal data at any time. We may be required by law to retain your data for a certain period of time (e.g. 6 years for business mail or 10 years for tax-related documents). In such a case, we will block your record until the retention period expires and then delete the record accordingly. Please address your request for deletion to the data protection officer, who will exercise your rights in our company on your behalf.

    d) Art. 18 Right to restriction of processing
    If you dispute the accuracy of our personal data, or if you refuse the deletion of your data and instead demand the restriction (e.g. in the case of advertising letters), you can demand the restriction of processing from us. We will then set your data to blocked.

    e) Art. 19 Notification obligations in connection with correction, deletion or limitation
    We are obliged to inform all recipients of your data of any correction, deletion or restriction commissioned by you, insofar as this is possible and can be implemented with a reasonable effort. We will inform you about the recipients of your data if you request this.

    f) Art. 20 Right to data portability

  6. Processing Operations

    In this section we will describe the data processing operations that are related to our Internet offering or that apply to a general business relationship between you and our company.

    The following legal bases serve us for the processing of your data.
    Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.

    If the processing of your data is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract to which you are a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations which are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, such as in cases of inquiries regarding our products or services.

    If our company is subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR.

    In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our business were injured and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR.

    Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of you do not prevail. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator.

    a) a) Website
    We operate this website and collect various data in this context.

    Some of the Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer by your browser. Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser during your next visit. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, accept cookies for certain cases or generally exclude them and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.

    Cookies that are required for the execution of the electronic communication process or for the provision of certain functions (e.g. shopping basket function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. We, as website operators, have a justified interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of our services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysing your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are dealt with separately in this data protection declaration.

    Server log data
    URT Umwelt- und Recyclingtechnik GmbH or our website provider collects data about access to our website and stores it as "server log files". The following data is logged in this way:
    - Date and time of the request

    - Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
    - web browser and operating system used

    (1) LinkedIn-Link
    We have included a link to the career platform LinkedIn on this website. LinkedIn is an internet-based social network that enables users to stay in touch with existing business contacts and to make new contacts. The individual user can create a profile of himself, companies can publish their own company profile and job offers. Over 400 million registered users in more than 200 countries are members of the platform, which makes it the largest platform for business contacts at present and thus one of the most visited websites in the world.

    LinkedIn is operated by LinkedIn Corporation, 2023 Stierlin Court Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. For data protection matters outside the USA, LinkedIn Ireland, Privacy Policy Issues, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland is responsible.

    When you click on the LinkedIn link, your browser is redirected from our website to the LinkedIn platform. LinkedIn remembers from which page you have switched to our LinkedIn site. If you are logged into LinkedIn with your own account at the same time, LinkedIn will link your profile to our corporate website and remember this. This will happen even if you are logged in with your LinkedIn account and have not clicked on the LinkedIn link. If you do not want this information to be sent to LinkedIn, you can prevent this transmission by logging out of your LinkedIn account before you visit our website.

    LinkedIn provides you with the ability to unsubscribe from email, SMS, and targeted ads, and to manage your ad preferences, at LinkedIn also uses partners such as Quantcast, Google Analytics, BlueKai, DoubleClick, Nielsen, Comscore, Eloqua and Lotame who may set cookies. Such cookies can be rejected at LinkedIn's current privacy policy can be viewed at LinkedIn's cookie policy is available at

    The use of LinkedIn links is based on art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in the widest possible visibility in social media.

    b) Contact / Inquiries / Newsletter

    In the following, we describe the possibilities of establishing contact with the employees of our company.

    Contact Form
    If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form including the contact data you provided there will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. These data will not be passed on without your consent.
    The processing of the data entered in the contact form thus takes place in the first step on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal e-mail notification to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation. In further correspondence, there may be a change of legality (e.g. if you request an offer), then your data will be processed in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit b GDPR.
    The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected by this.

    E-mail / Telephone Enquiry
    If you send us enquiries by e-mail or telephone, your details from the e-mail or from the conversation, including the contact details provided by you there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
    The processing of the data provided in the mail or from the telephone call is therefore based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal e-mail notification to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation. In further correspondence, there may be a change of legality (e.g. if it is a business correspondence), then your data will be processed in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit b GDPR.
    The data provided by you in the mail or from the telephone conversation will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected by this.

    c) Data Processing for the Performance of Contracts
    If you have entered into a business relationship with our company, e.g. you have placed an order with us, data processing will be carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR. All data necessary to initiate, fulfil or complete this order, such as contact data, object data, service providers involved, photo documentation, plans, orders for goods, etc., may be collected and processed by us without separate consent.

    Should it be necessary to call in a subcontractor (e.g. other IT service providers, special software suppliers) to fulfil the contract with you, we may also pass on your data to this subcontractor. We guarantee that we have committed our subcontractors to the same strict data protection requirements that you can expect from us.

    In individual cases it may happen that we have a company information about the Creditrefom issued to us in order to initiate an order. Should any consequences for the order arise from the data received, we will clarify this separately with you.

    In rare cases it comes also to an examination of individuals. For this purpose, our company checks your creditworthiness on a random basis when concluding contracts and in certain cases in which there is a justified interest, also with existing customers. To this end, we cooperate with Creditreform Boniversum GmbH, Hellersbergstraße 11, 41460 Neuss, from which we receive the necessary data. For this purpose, we transmit your name and contact data to Creditreform Boniversum GmbH. You can find information pursuant to Art. 14 of the GDPR on data processing at Creditreform Boniversum GmbH here:

    The data which are in connection with orders are subject to different retention periods. For example, tax documents must be verified for 10 years. Design and construction data of the shredding plants can also be subject to a 30-year storage period, as the service life of such a plant is on average 30 years and we are happy to offer you the service of not starting anew with a new order. We will only pass on your data within our company to the extent necessary, if this is justified by the subject of the order.

    d) Dealing with Application Documents
    The legal basis for processing your personal data for application purposes is § 26 of the BDSG.

    Data will only be collected and processed to the extent required by law. Insofar as further data may not be required directly for the establishment of the employment relationship, processing is based on your consent to data release in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR. In some cases the collection may also be based on a legitimate interest of our company, in which case Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR applies.

    A legitimate interest may arise, for example, from internal organisational and administrative purposes, for the protection of the company's facilities, installations and assets as well as data processing installations and data. Processing of your data is permitted here unless the protection of your interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms prevails.
    In individual cases, we may also obtain your consent to the processing or transmission of your data. Your consent in these cases is voluntary and may be revoked by you at any time in the future, unless otherwise agreed.
    A disclosure of the application documents takes place within the company. The respective specialist department is thus involved in the application process. The specialist departments are instructed to treat application documents as strictly confidential. The documents will not be passed on to a third country.

    URT Umwelt- und Recyclingtechnik GmbH in the Federal Republic of Germany is responsible for the collection, processing and use of your personal data.

    Your personal data will only be stored as long as it is necessary to know the data for the above-mentioned purposes or as long as there are legal or contractual storage regulations. As a rule, the application documents are deleted 6 months after completion of the application procedure. It is possible to store your data for a longer period if you give us your consent. During this extended period, URT Umwelt- und Recyclingtechnik GmbH will be happy to contact you about new job offers.

  7. Protection / Encryption

    This site uses TLS 1.0 - 1.2 encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content such as applications or requests that you send to us as a site operator. The level of encryption depends on your browser version. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
    If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

  8. Profiling

    As a responsible company, we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.

  9. Actuality / Status

    This data protection declaration has the status of June 2020 and is subject to constant updating and adaptation to new legal framework conditions and technical developments.
