Privacy policy

Declaration on the duty to inform / data protection declaration for Blinker GmbH Status: 13/6.11.2021

We are very pleased about your interest in our company. The protection and security of your personal data is of particular concern to us and has a high priority. The use of the Internet pages of the Blinker GmbH is possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special services of our enterprise via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary.

When we process personal data (such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject), we always do so in line with the General Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the applicable country-specific data protection regulations. In this privacy policy, we inform you about the most important aspects of data processing within the framework of our website, what kind of data is collected and for what purpose it is collected. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of the rights to which they are entitled by means of this data protection declaration. If processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

As the controller, the Blinker GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can always be vulnerable to security risks, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone. If you still have questions, please contact us.

If you contact us by form on the website or by e-mail, the data you provide will be stored by us for six months for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

If you have any questions about this privacy policy, please contact us at or at the contact information above.

2. collection of general data and information / data transmission / data logging

The website of the Blinker GmbH collects a series of general data and information with each call-up of the website by a data subject or automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The following data may be collected: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of an access to the website, (6) the anonymized Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, the Blinker GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed (1) to deliver the contents of our website correctly, (2) to optimize the contents of our website and the advertising for these, (3) to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. Therefore, the Blinker GmbH analyzes anonymously collected data and information on one hand, and on the other hand, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise so that we can ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.

6. security of your data

Your personal data made available to us will be secured by taking all technical as well as organizational security measures in such a way that they are inaccessible to unauthorized third parties. When sending very sensitive data or information, it is recommended to use the postal service, as complete data security cannot be guaranteed by e-mail.

7. cookies

Cookies are small data records that are stored on your computer. The purpose of these cookies is, for example, better control of the connection during your visit to our website and more effective support when you return to our website. Without this temporary "caching", some applications would require you to re-enter information you have already entered. A cookie contains only the data that a server issues or/and the user enters on request (e.g. structure: details of domain, path, expiration date, cookie name and value). Cookies therefore contain purely technical information, not personal data.

The most common types of cookies are explained below for your understanding:

Session cookies: while you are active on a website, a session cookie is temporarily stored in the memory of your terminal device, in which a session identifier is stored, for example, to prevent you from having to log in again each time you change pages. Session cookies are deleted when you log out or lose their validity as soon as their session has automatically expired.

Persistant cookies: Persistant cookies store a file on your terminal device for the period specified in the expiration date. Through these cookies, the website remembers your information and settings the next time you visit. This results in faster and more convenient access, as you do not have to set your language preferences for our website again, for example.

Third Party Cookies: Third party cookies are session or persistent cookies that originate from a provider other than the website operator. These cookies collect information such as length of stay, page views, movement through links, etc. They are used, for example, to display certain advertising content based on search histories, visited websites and the like. These cookies cannot be read by us.

If you wish, you can generally suppress a storage of cookies (or certain types of cookies) via your web browser or decide whether you want a storage or not via a notice. However, non-acceptance of cookies may result in some pages no longer being displayed correctly or in limited usability.

Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions that you have requested are stored on the basis of Art 6 para 1 lit f DS-GVO. We have a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of our services.

14. data protection during applications / application procedures as well as publication of job advertisements.

Blinker GmbH collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application procedure. The processing may also take place electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits corresponding application documents to Blinker GmbH electronically, for example by e-mail or via a web form located on the website.
If Blinker GmbH concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If no employment contract is concluded with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests prevent deletion. Other legitimate interests in this sense include, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG), if longer storage is necessary or if you have expressly consented to longer storage in our database of prospective employees.

15 Your rights

You are generally entitled to the rights of information, 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 rights have otherwise been violated in some way, you can complain to the supervisory authority. In Austria, this is the data protection authority.

16. routine deletion and blocking of personal data

Blinker GmbH processes and stores personal data of the data subject only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or insofar as this has been provided for by the European Directive and Regulation Maker or another legislator in laws or regulations to which Blinker GmbH is subject.
If the storage purpose ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation Maker or another competent legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

17. legal basis of processing

Article 6 I lit. a DSGVO serves as the legal basis for our company for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for a delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DSGVO. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services.
If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which a processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DSGVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person.
This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DSGVO. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DSGVO. 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 protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden.
Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (Recital 47, Sentence 2 DSGVO).

18 Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party.

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DSGVO, our legitimate interest is the conduct of our business for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

19 Duration for which the personal data are stored.

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of the contract.

20. legal or contractual requirements to provide the personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide the personal data. person to provide the personal data; possible consequences of not providing it.

We inform you that the provision of personal data is sometimes required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes, in order to conclude a contract, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before providing personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact our data protection officer. Our data protection officer will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data, and what the consequences of not providing the personal data would be.
If you wish to prevent this transmission and storage of data about you and your behavior on our website by the respective provider, you must log out of these providers before visiting our site.
You can find out more about the data collection of the respective providers on their web platforms.

21 Changes to this privacy policy

We will update this policy from time to time to protect your personal information. You should review this policy occasionally to stay informed about how we are protecting your information and continually improving the content of our website. If we make any material changes to the collection, use and/or disclosure of the personal information you provide to us, we will notify you by placing a prominent and prominent notice on the Website.

If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or by using a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be stored automatically. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the controller will be stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the data subject.
