PRIVACY POLICY


The protection of your privacy when processing personal data as well as the security of such data is important to Ferdinand Berger & Söhne Ges.m.b.H (hereinafter: Berger Printing). We treat the personal data collected when you visit our website or enter into a contractual agreement with us confidentially, and we only process such data in accordance with applicable data protection laws, as amended.

We would like you, as someone who uses our services, to understand how we use information and which options you have to protect your data.

This Privacy Policy informs you about the data we collect from you, the purposes for which we process such data and what we do with the data we have collected.

Please read the following information carefully. If you have any questions, please contact us at datenschutz@berger.at.

1. Privacy Policy

Our Privacy Policy explains the following:

  • What information we collect and why;
  • How we use this information;
  • Which options we offer, including how information can be accessed and updated.

2. Data processing when INITIATING CONTACT

When you contact us, we process your data for the purpose of initiating contact. Such data processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6, paragraph 1 lit b of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) (initiation and performance of a contract). For us to be able to perform our pre-contractual obligations, it is imperative that we process the data with which you have provided us.

3. Data processing within the scope of contractual PERFORMANCE

We process those data which you, as a customer, provide us or disclose to us in the context of pre-contractual measures and upon entering into a contract.

Your data will be processed automatically (e.g. email correspondence) within the scope of our business relationship and in the form of archived text documents (e.g. correspondence, contracts, personalised invoices) in order to implement pre-contractual measures and to be able to perform the contract. Such data is also processed for marketing purposes.

Such data processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6, paragraph 1 lit b of the GDPR (initiation and performance of a contract). For us to be able to perform our contractual obligations, it is imperative that we process the data with which you have provided us. In addition, we may process such data for marketing purposes on the basis of Art. 6, paragraph 1 lit. f of the GDPR (legitimate interests) and the Austrian Telecommunication Act (Telekommunikationsgesetz, TKG)

4. Data protection for EMPLOYMENT applications and during the application process

We process the personal data of applicants for employment for the purpose of conducting the application process. Such processing can also take place electronically if, for example, an applicant sends us supporting documentation for their application via email or via the contact form on our website. If we enter into an employment contract with such applicant, the data we have received shall be processed and stored for the purpose of entering into an employment relationship in compliance with applicable laws. If we do not enter into an employment contract with such applicant, such supporting documentation shall be erased six months after having informed such applicant of our decision to refrain from making an offer of employment, provided that such erasure does not conflict with any of our other legitimate interests. In this context, a legitimate interest could include, for example, the burden of proof during litigation under the Austrian Equal Treatment Act (Gleichbehandlungsgesetz). Such data processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6, paragraph 1 lit b of the GDPR (initiation and performance of a contract) and Art. 6, paragraph 1 lit a (data subject’s consent maintaining supporting documentation for the application on file) and, as the case may be, Art. 6, paragraph 1 lit f (legitimate interests in the event of litigation).
