Section 4

Processing of personal data when applying

  1. By applying to a company of the MENNEKES Group, you provide the company with your personal data via a specific application. Your data will be stored and processed on the MENNEKES systems as well as on the systems of our software partner Haufe-umantis AG. In this case, MENNEKES Elektrotechnik GmbH & Co. KG acts as the controller within the meaning of Article 4 (7) GDPR and Haufe-umantis AG as the processor within the meaning of Article 28 of the GDPR.

  2. In the application process, we collect additional data in addition to the information specified in §3. This includes:

    -     applicant master data (title, surname, first name, date of birth, address)

    -     application data (CV, certificates, assessments)

    -     Communication data (telephone number, e-mail address, IP address)

  3. The data will be stored in the applicant database and kept strictly confidential. Employees of the Human Resources Department and personnel responsible for personnel selection in the MENNEKES Group's specialist departments have access to the data. Personal data will not be disclosed or used for any purpose other than as shown here by any unaffiliated person or entity outside the MENNEKES Group. The data can be used anonymously for statistical purposes (eg reporting). There are no conclusions about individual persons possible. The secure transmission and storage of the data is guaranteed.

    The proper deletion of the applicant data takes place after the application process has expired or after expiry of the legally prescribed retention periods, unless explicit consent has been given for the longer-term storage. If an applicant is recruited to MENNEKES from the application, the personal data, or at most an excerpt thereof, will be added to the personnel file.

  4. The consent to data processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR only applies to persons who have reached the age of 16 years. The processing of personal data for persons who have not yet reached the age of 16 is, according to Art. 8 para. 1 GDPR, only permissible if a parent or guardian accepts responsibility for such consent or accepts the consent. It is therefore assumed that the processing of personal data is justified for minors under the age of 16 with the consent of the legal guardian. This condition is based on the fact that it is in the interest of the applicant and the legal guardian that an application process can take place. The legal basis here is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f.

Section 5

Processing of personal data in business relationship

  1. If you have provided us with your data to fulfill a (pre-) contract or for marketing reasons, further personal data will be stored. Depending on the application, this can include the following data categories:

    -     personal data (eg name, salutation, title)
    -     Communication data (eg telephone, e-mail, addresses)
    -     Contract data (eg contract details, services, customer number, terms of payment, bank details)
    -     Customer history (eg e-mails, documents, call / call logs, questionnaires contract billing and payment data)
    -     Planning and control data (eg processing status, tasks to be performed)
    -     information (from third parties, eg credit bureaus, or from public directories)

  2. It is possible that customers of MENNEKES wish drop shipping. In this case, MENNEKES receives the personal data as well as communication data of customers of our customers who are not in direct contractual relationship with MENNEKES. These data are used solely to fulfill the contractual obligation to MENNEKES customers and to ship the goods to the appropriate delivery address. These third party data will not be used for purposes other than performance of the contract. The data will be protected to the same extent with suitable technical and organizational measures as any other data of the direct business partners of MENNEKES.

  3. The categories of personal data provided are processed and stored for the purposes of contract enforcement. They are kept in accordance with applicable legal obligations.

  4. The processing of the listed data types takes place exclusively on the basis of legal legitimacy of the legal bases listed under Section 9.

Section 6

Making contact on our website

  1. If you contact us by email or via a contact form, the data you have shared with us (your email address, your name and your telephone number, if applicable) are stored by us so that we can answer your questions. If your request requires it and the answer is therefore in your interest or you have given us express consent, we forward your request together with your information to our MENNEKES subsidiaries, including those in other countries (in accordance with Article 49 para 1 GDPR). If the request requires and is pre-selected by the user, individual requests may also be forwarded to MENNEKES partner companies. We delete the data that occurs in this connection after it is no longer required to store it or we restrict the processing if statutory storage obligations exist.

  2. We would point out it is possible for emails to be read and changed without authorization and without it being noticed on an unencrypted transfer channel, if encryption technology was not used. In addition, MENNEKES uses spam filters to counter unwanted advertising, which in exceptional cases can also reject normal emails by mistake. Emails that contain viruses/malware are also blocked before delivery.


Section 7

Data transfer to other countries

As a rule, there is no transfer of personal data to countries outside the European Union (so-called third countries), unless it is required by law (eg tax reporting obligations) or if you have given consent to this to MENNEKES or the nature of the request. Personal data may be transferred within the MENNEKES Group, as far as this is necessary for the performance of the activities. The transfer of personal data applies in particular to the foreign branches to Germany. As far as a transfer to, for example, Switzerland or If the USA takes place, this transmission is legitimized by Art. 44 et seq. GDPR and corresponding regulations.


Section 8


  1. You have the option of registering for our newsletter. To do this, it is an absolute requirement that you share your email address with us. Optional information, such as making known your full name serves only to optimize the service. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time via the unsubscribe link provided in the email. To subscribe to the newsletter, the double opt-in procedure is used to verify your email address and at the same time check that you agree to receive the newsletter.

  2. If the user has given express prior consent, personal newsletter tracking can be deployed. When delivering the newsletter, MENNEKES can record certain of the recipient's data, e.g. the time of request for delivery, the IP address or information on the email program used (client). In this way, statistical analyses can be produced as well as carrying out assessments of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Also, with the help of personal tracking, newsletters tailored to the requirements of the recipient can be sent. The name of the image file is individualised for each email recipient by attaching a unique ID. MENNEKES thereby notes which email address belongs to which ID and can therefore ascertain which newsletter recipient has just opened the email by calling up the image. This data is not forwarded to third parties.Data subjects are entitled at any time to cancel personal tracking as well as non-personal newsletter tracking. If you unsubscribe from personal tracking, the general newsletter continues to be sent. If you unsubscribe completely from the newsletter, you are automatically unsubscribed from all types of newsletter. Cancellation options are additionally detailed at the end of each newsletter.


Section 9

Lawful basis for processing

Unless previously stated otherwise, we process the personal data provided to us in accordance with Article 6 para 1 a GDPR, as long as we have received the necessary consent for the processing purpose. If the personal data serves to fulfil a contract or pre-contract, we process the data in accordance with Article 6 para 1 b GDPR. If we are legally obligated to process personal data (e.g. tax-related obligations), we process the data in accordance with Article 6 para 1 c GPDR. The processing can, however, also result from legitimate interests of MENNEKES, whereby the lawful basis is Article 6 para 1 f GDPR. Legitimate interests include the maintenance of our viability as a business as well as the well-being of all of our staff and our shareholders.

    Google Maps

    Die Internetpräsenz von MENNEKES verwendet die Google Maps API, um geographische Informationen visuell darzustellen. Google Maps wird von Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA betrieben. Es werden Daten über die Nutzung der Maps-Funktionen durch Besucher der Internetseite erhoben, verarbeitet und genutzt. Durch die Nutzung dieser Website erklärt sich der Nutzer mit der Verarbeitung sowie der Nutzung der automatisch erhobenen sowie der von dem Nutzer eingegeben Daten (einschließlich der IP-Adresse) durch Google, einer seiner Vertreter oder Drittanbieter einverstanden.

    Google AdWords

    Die Website von MENNEKES nutzt im Rahmen des Werbeprogramms „Google Adwords“ die Conversion-Tracking Funktion. Dabei wird ein Cookie gesetzt, sobald der Nutzer auf eine von Google geschaltete Anzeige klickt. Diese Cookies verlieren nach 30 Tagen ihre Gültigkeit und dienen nicht der persönlichen Identifizierung. Besucht der Nutzer bestimmte Seiten der Website des Adwords-Kunden und das Cookie ist noch nicht abgelaufen, können Google und MENNEKES erkennen, dass der Nutzer auf die Anzeige geklickt hat und zu dieser Seite weitergeleitet wurde. Jeder Adwords-Kunde erhält ein anderes Cookie. Cookies können somit nicht über die Websites anderer Adwords-Nutzer nachverfolgt werden. Die mithilfe des Conversion-Cookies eingeholten Informationen dienen dazu, Conversion-Statistiken für Adwords-Nutzer zu erstellen, die sich für Conversion-Tracking entschieden haben. MENNEKES erfährt die Gesamtzahl der Nutzer, die auf ihre Anzeige geklickt haben und zu einer mit einem Conversion-Tracking-Tag versehenen Seite weitergeleitet wurden. MENNEKES erhält jedoch keine Informationen, mit denen sich Nutzer persönlich identifizieren lassen. Wenn der Nutzer nicht am Tracking teilnehmen möchte, kann er dieser Nutzung widersprechen. Dies gelingt beispielsweise mit dem Deaktivieren des Google Conversion-Tracking-Cookies im Internet-Browser. Alternativ kann das Setzen von Cookies generell deaktiviert werden. Ohne gesetztes Cookie werden keine Informationen in die Conversion-Tracking Statistiken aufgenommen.
