§2 Legal Basis for Processing

Our company applies Art. 6 (1)(1)(a) GDPR as legal basis for processing procedures for which we obtain the consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is required to perform a contract to which the data subject is a party, as e.g., in cases of processing procedures required for the delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or return service, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1)(1)(b) GDPR. The same is applicable to such processing procedures required for the performance of pre-contractual measures such as in cases of requests regarding our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data such as e.g., the satisfaction of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1)(1)(c) GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become required to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person, Art. 6 (1)(1)(d) GDPR. Finally, processing procedures could as well be based on Art. 6 (1)(1)(f) GDPR. Processing procedures that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases rest on this legal basis if processing is required to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject prevail.

§11 Notice in accordance with Art. 13 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) about the processing of personal data in connection with the whistleblower system

In what follows we inform you about the processing of personal data by elobau GmbH & Co. KG (hereinafter “elobau”) in connection with the whistleblower system and about the associated data protection regulations, claims and rights.

elobau uses web-based software, a cloud solution hosted in Germany, which supports the detection of operational abuses. The introduction of such a system can facilitate the early detection and prevention of criminal, illegal, ethically reprehensible or dishonest actions. In this way, possibly incalculable material and immaterial damage as well as reputational damage can be averted.

Purpose of data processing
elobau processes the personal data of the respective whistleblower, unless the tip was made anonymously, as well as the personal data of the person(s) accused of misdemeanours: this data consists of names and other communication and content data, exclusively for the purpose of obtaining information on criminal, illegal, unethical or improper activity in a safe and confidential manner.

Categories of data processing in connection with the whistleblower system
Information about the whistleblower (if he/she does not wish to remain anonymous) and the accused party, such as

first and last name
job title
contact details
possibly other personal data related to the employment relationship

personal information identified in the investigating team’s reports (see Section 4), including details of the allegations made and the evidence supporting them

date and time of calls (when notification is received via the telephone hotline)

any other information identified in the investigation results and in the follow-up procedure following the report, e.g. information about criminal conduct or data about unlawful or improper conduct where reported

Legal basis for data processing
The collection of the personal data of the whistleblower (in the case of a non-anonymous tip) takes place on the basis of consent to the processing through the transmission of the data (implicit consent) (Art. 6 (1) 1a GDPR).

The collection, processing and disclosure of personal data of the persons named in a report serves to protect the legitimate interests of elobau (Art. 6 (1) 1f GDPR). It is in elobau’s legitimate interest to expose, process, stop and sanction violations of the law and serious breaches of duty by employees wherever these occur in the company, effectively and with a high degree of confidentiality, and to avert associated damage and liability risks for elobau (§§ 30, 130 OWiG (Administrative Offences Act)). Directive (EU) 2019/1937 (“EU Whistleblower Directive”) and the future Whistleblower Protection Act (“HinSchG”) (currently in draft form) also require the establishment of a whistleblower system in order to give employees and third parties the opportunity to report violations of the law in a suitable manner to give in the company.

The transfer of personal data to other recipients in the case of non-anonymous reports may be necessary due to legal obligations (Article 6 (1) 1c GDPR).

Recipients of the data and transfer to third countries (EU/EEA countries)
Any personal information collected through the web-based software is only made available to those individuals who, by virtue of their role, have a legitimate need to process that information.

The Compliance & Integrity Manager is responsible for the initial processing of new reports.

If the tip is received via the telephone hotline, the tip will be recorded in the whistleblower system while maintaining the anonymity of the whistleblower. The hotline staff is bound to secrecy (see below).

At elobau, only authorised employees from the following departments have access to the data (investigation team):

Compliance & Integrity
HR (in specific cases)

In some cases, the company is required to disclose the data to public authorities (such as those with legal or regulatory jurisdiction over the employer as well as law enforcement and judicial bodies) or external consultants (such as accountants, auditors, attorneys).

If the whistleblower has provided his/her name or other personal data (not anonymous information), the identity will not be disclosed – as far as legally possible – and it will also be ensured that it will not be possible to deduce the whistleblower’s identity.

If personal data is processed by external service providers, this is generally done on the basis of order processing contracts in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. In these cases, we ensure that the processing of personal data is carried out in accordance with the provisions of the GDPR and that all persons authorised to process personal data have made personal confidentiality declarations or are subject to an appropriate statutory duty of confidentiality. The whistleblower system is operated on our behalf by LegalTegrity GmbH, Platz der Einheit 2, 60327 Frankfurt/Main.

No transfer of personal data to third countries takes place (EU/EEA countries).

Duration of processing, deletion of data
The personal data will be held in the respective process for as long as required for the purposes of investigation and final assessment or as long a as a legitimate interest of elobau exists or where there is a legal requirement. Thereafter, this data will be deleted in accordance with legal requirements. The duration of the storage depends in particular on the severity of the suspicion and the reported breach of duty.

Technical information on using the whistleblower system
Communication between your computer and the whistleblower system takes place via an encrypted connection (SSL). The IP address of your computer will not be saved when you use the whistleblower system. To maintain the connection between your computer and the whistleblower system, a cookie is stored on your computer, which only contains the session ID. The cookie is only valid until the end of your session and becomes invalid when the browser is closed.

Rights of data subjects according to the GDPR
You have the following rights in connection with the processing of your personal data:

In accordance with Art. 7 GDPR, you have the right to revoke your consent to data processing at any time. The revocation of the consent does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent up to the point of revocation.

According to Art. 14 GDPR, if your data is collected without your knowledge (e.g. because you are involved as an accused person in the procedure for clarifying the notification), you have the right to be informed about the storage, the type of data, the purpose of the processing and of the identity of the person responsible and, if applicable, of the whistleblower (unless the tip-off was submitted anonymously). However, if there was a significant risk that such notification would jeopardise elobau’s ability to effectively investigate the allegation or to collect the necessary evidence, this information can be deferred according to Article 14 (5) 1b GDPR as long as this danger exists. The information must then be provided as soon as the reason for the postponement no longer applies.

In accordance with Art. 15 GDPR, you have the right to request information about your personal data that is processed by elobau.

In accordance with Art. 16 GDPR, you have the right to demand the immediate correction of incorrect information or the supplementing of incomplete information stored by us.

In accordance with Art. 17 GDPR, you have the right to request the deletion of your personal data stored by us, provided that such processing is not in connection with exercising the right to freedom of expression and information, fulfilling a legal obligation to which elobau is subject , performing a task that is in the public interest or asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.

In accordance with Art. 18 GDPR, you can request the restriction of the processing of your personal data if you dispute the accuracy of this data or if the processing of this data is unlawful.

In accordance with Art. 20 GDPR, you have the right to receive the personal data concerning you in a structured, common and machine-readable format and to transmit this data to another responsible part without hindrance or to have this data transmitted by us.

In accordance with Art. 21 GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data if there are reasons for this that arise from your particular situation. Your data will then no longer be processed unless elobau can demonstrate compelling reasons for processing that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or that the processing serves to assert or defend legal claims.

According to Art. 77 GDPR in conjunction with Section 17 BDSG (Federal Data Protection Act), you have the right to lodge a complaint against elobau with the competent supervisory authority. This is:

§12 Google Products

We use various products of the company Google Ireland Ltd.; Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, which are described in more detail as follows.

As it cannot be excluded that Google processes personal data at their headquarters in the USA too, we approached both the company proper and our appropriate supervisory authority with the aim of enabling data transfer to the USA in conformity with the law.

For the time being, the data transfer is at least partially still based on the EU-US Privacy Shield. On 5 August 2020, however, Google communicated that they intended to prepare standard contract clauses in conformity with data protection law.

For the current state of affairs, please consult Google’s privacy information:

12.1. Google Analytics

12.2 Google Tag Manager

We use the Google Tag Manager of the company Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). The Google Tag Manager is a cookie-free domain and does not record any personal data. The tool makes sure that other components are triggered, which in their turn could record data, as the case may be. The Google Tag Manager does not access such data. In case of deactivation on domain level or on cookie level, this will maintain its effect on all tracking tags implemented together with the Google Tag Manager.

12.3 Google Remarketing via Double Click

We use the remarketing function of the company Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). The purpose of this function is to show visitors of the website interest-related ads in the context of the Google advertising network Double Click. To that end, the browser of the website visitor stores cookies that enable the recognition of the visitor once he/she views websites that are part of Google’s advertising network. Then, ads can be presented to the visitor on those websites relating to contents the visitor viewed previously on websites using the Google remarketing function.

To that end, Google Safeframe uses cookies, among other things, i.e., small text files stored locally in the buffer memory of your web browser on your terminal device enabling us to conduct an analysis of your use of our website.

The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 (1)(1)(a) GDPR. Consent via the consent banner (activation by Google Analytics).

12.5 Google Adwords Conversion

  1. We use the offer of Google Adwords in order to attract attention to our offers on external websites with the assistance of advertising tools (so-called Google Adwords). We can determine in relation to the data of the advertising campaigns how successful the individual advertising measures are. We do so as we are interested in showing you ads of interest to you, presenting our website in a more interesting arrangement for you and achieving a fair calculation of advertising costs.
  2. Google delivers the said advertising tools by means of so-called “ad servers”. In this connection, we use ad server cookies, which enable the measurement of specific parameters for success measurement such as the pop-up of ads or clicks by the users. If you come to our website via a Google ad, Google Adwords stores a cookie on your computer. As a rule, such cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. In connection with that cookie, the unique cookie ID, the number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-​view conversions), as well as opt-​out information (tag to show that the user no longer wishes to be approached) are generally stored as analysis values.
  3. Such cookies enable Google to recognise your web browser again. If a user visits specific pages of the website of an Adwords customer and the cookie stored on his/her computer has not expired yet, Google and the customer can recognise that the user clicked the ad and was redirected to that page. Each Adwords customer is assigned another cookie. According to Google, cookies can therefore not be traced via the websites of Adwords customers. As far as we are concerned, we do not use the mentioned advertising tools to collect and process any personal data. We just receive statistical evaluations from Google. Based on those evaluations, we can recognise which of the advertising tools we employed are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising tools and, in particular, we cannot identify the users with that information.
  4. Owing to the employed marketing tools, your browser establishes a connection to Google’s server automatically. We have no influence on the volume and the further processing of the data collected by Google using this tool and therefore we inform you in accordance with our state of information: By way of incorporation of AdWords Conversion, Google receives the information that you accessed the corresponding part of our website or clicked any of our ads. If you are registered with a service of Google, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider finds out and stores your IP address.
  5. The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 (1)(1)(a) GDPR. Consent via the consent banner (activation by Google Analytics).

16.7 Facebook Pixel

We use Facebook’s Facebook pixel on our website. For that, we have implemented a code on our website. The Facebook pixel is a segment of a JavaScript code, which, in case you came to our website via Facebook ads, loads an array or functions that enable Facebook to track your user actions. For example, if you buy a product on our website, the Facebook pixel is triggered and stores your actions on our website in one or more cookies. These cookies enable Facebook to match your user data (customer data such as IP address, user ID) with the data of your Facebook account. After that, Facebook deletes your data again. The collected data is anonymous as well as inaccessible and can only be used for ad placement purposes. If you are a Facebook user and you are logged in, your visit to our website is automatically assigned to your Facebook user account.

We exclusively want to show our products or services to persons, who are interested in them. With the aid of the Facebook pixel, our advertising measures can get better adjusted to your wishes and interests. Therefore, Facebook users get to see suitable advertisement (if they allowed personalised advertisement). Moreover, Facebook uses the collected data for analytical purposes and for its own advertisements.

In the following we will show you the cookies, which were set on a test page with the Facebook pixel integrated to it. Please consider that these cookies are only examples. Depending on the interaction that is made on our website, different cookies are set.
