FRITSCH GmbH • Milling and Sizing has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures in order to ensure the most complete possible protection of personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.

Provided that persons concerned want to utilize special services offered via our website, processing of personal data may be required, which we in compliance of the relevant regulations, especially the Federal Data Protection (Bundesdatenschutzgesetzes - BDSG) and the telecommunications media regulatory commission (Telemediengesetzes - TMG) save and process.

For verification we need some information, which we mark as mandatory fields. Your data used for processing and contacting will be saved on an especially protected server in Germany. Access to this server is only possible for a few specially authorized persons who are concerned with the technological, commercial or editorial care of the server.

If you have registered for the FRITSCH Newsletter, we will process your data provided during registration. After sending the registration for the receipt of the newsletter, you will immediately receive, a confirmation e-mail in the double-opt in process, to the e-mail address provided for the subscription.

If you do no longer want to receive the newsletter or our advertising mail, you can unsubscribe at any time via the simple unsubscribe link.

Static evaluations are possible for the newsletter. For this purpose, we anonymously record both the openings of the e-mails and the clicks on links. There is no personal tracking. This information is used to optimize the content of the newsletter and to measure the success of marketing campaigns. This information is not transmitted to third parties. The legal basis for this tracking is the protection of legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter f DSGVO.

2. Retention duration of personal data
Personal data, which was disclosed to us during the use of our website, is basically only saved until its purpose is fulfilled to which it was entrusted to us. If terms of commercial and tax law record retention periods are to be considered the retention period for certain personal data may be up to 10 years.
Saved personal data, required for receiving the newsletter is saved until the newsletter is unsubscribed and afterwards blocked. Data stored by us for other purposes shall remain unaffected by this.

3. Passing of personal data to third parties
We utilize your personal data for example for requests, brochure orders, test sample measurements, test sample millings and registrations and in the context of our business relationship.
We will not sell, rent or use your personal data or transfer it to third parties other for marketing and advertising purposes. In case of inquiries from abroad, the data will be forwarded to the responsible representation or cooperation partners of the FRITSCH GmbH for processing. As far as we are obligated by law or court order to do so, we will submit your personal data to bodies entitled to receive information.
Exempt is the transfer to one or more processors of the order which are responsible for the technical processing. In these cases, the personal data will also be used solely for an internal use which can be directly attributed to the person responsible for the processing.

4. Important information for applicants
We process the applicant data only for the purpose and within the scope of the application procedure in accordance with the legal requirements. The processing of the applicant data is carried out to fulfil our (pre-) contractual obligations within the framework of the application procedure, insofar as the data processing is necessary for us, e.g. within the framework of legal procedures.

Application procedure
The application procedure requires that applicants provide us with their application data. The necessary applicant data is derived from the job descriptions and basically includes personal details, postal and contact addresses and the documents belonging to the application, such as cover letter, CV and certificates. In addition, applicants can voluntarily provide us with additional information.

By submitting their application to us, applicants agree to the processing of their data for the purposes of the application procedure in accordance with the type and scope described in this data protection declaration.

Insofar as special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 Para. 1 DSGVO are voluntarily communicated as part of the application procedure, their processing is also carried out in accordance with Art. 9 Para. 2 letter b DSGVO - General Data Protection Regulation - (e.g. health data, such as severely disabled status or ethnic origin).

Applicants have their own e-mail address which is not linked to our e-mail archive. Please note, however, that e-mails are generally not sent in encrypted form and applicants must ensure that they encrypt it themselves.

It is also possible to apply via WhatsApp Business.
The provider is WhatsApp Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.
Communication takes place via end-to-end encryption, which prevents WhatsApp or other third parties from gaining access to the communication content. However, WhatsApp obtains access to metadata that arise in the course of the communication process (e.g., sender, recipient and time). We would also like to point out that WhatsApp, according to its own statement, shares personal data of its users with its parent company Facebook, which is based in the USA. Further details on data processing can be found in WhatsApp's privacy policy at: Privacy Policy - EEA (

The communication content exchanged on WhatsApp remains with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after completion of the application process). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected. Data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. Details can be found here: Supplement for WhatsApp Business data transfer

Applicants still have the option of sending us their application by mail. In the event of a successful application, the data provided by the applicants may be processed by us for the purposes of the employment relationship. Otherwise, if the application for a job offer is not successful, the applicants' data is deleted. Applicants' data is also deleted if an application is withdrawn, which applicants are entitled to do at any time.

Deleting applicant data
Subject to a justified revocation by the applicants, the deletion will take place after the expiry of a period of six months, so that we can answer any follow-up questions regarding the application and meet our obligations to provide evidence under the Equal Treatment Act. Invoices for any reimbursement of travel expenses will be archived in accordance with tax law requirements.
