Some of our web pages use cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies help make our website more user-friendly, efficient, and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies." They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device's memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognize your browser when you next visit the site.

You can configure your browser to inform you about the use of cookies so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept or reject a cookie. Alternatively, your browser can be configured to automatically accept cookies under certain conditions or to always reject them, or to automatically delete cookies when closing your browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

Cookies which are necessary to allow electronic communications or to provide certain functions you wish to use (such as the shopping cart) are stored pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1, letter f of GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies to ensure an optimized service provided free of technical errors. If other cookies (such as those used to analyze your surfing behavior) are also stored, they will be treated separately in this privacy policy.

Should you send us questions via the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, to answer your question and any follow-up questions. We do not share this information without your permission.

We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1)(a) GDPR. You may revoke your consent at any time with future effect. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected by this provision.

5. Analytics and advertising

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service. It is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland.

Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Google Analytics cookies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its website and its advertising.

IP anonymization

We have activated the IP anonymization feature on this website. Your IP address will be shortened by Google within the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services regarding website activity and Internet usage for the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.

Demographic data collection by Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics' demographic features. This allows reports to be generated containing statements about the age, gender, and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. This collected data cannot be attributed to any specific individual person. You can disable this feature at any time by adjusting the ads settings in your Google account or you can forbid the collection of your data by Google Analytics as described in the section "Refusal of data collection".

6. Plugins and tools


Our website uses plugins from YouTube, which is operated by Google. The operator of the pages is YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

7. Processing of personal data in connection with applications

Alongside the general information relevant for data protection already mentioned, as relating to

we would like to provide you with some specific information about the processing of your personal data that is involved when you send a job application to our company.

Which items of your data do we process and for what purposes?
We process the data that you have sent to us in connection with your application in order to assess your suitability for the position (and for other positions in our company, as applicable) and to carry out the application procedure.

What is the legal basis for this processing?
The primary legal basis for the processing of your personal data in this application procedure is article 26 of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) in its current version. According to this law, processing of data is permissible if it is necessary in order to justify a hiring decision.

If data is still required after completing the application procedure – for legal reasons, for example – then data processing is permissible based on Art. 6 of the EU GDPR, and particularly for the purpose of upholding legitimate interests pursuant to point (f) of Art. 6(1) of the GDPR. In such cases, our interests are the assertion of or mounting a defence against claims.

For how long is applicant data stored?
If an application is rejected, applicant data is erased after 12 months.
If your application was successful and you have accepted our job offer, the data from the applicant data system will be transferred across into our HR information system.

Is applicant data shared with other data recipients?
After receipt, your applicant data is viewed by our HR department. Suitable applications are then forwarded internally to the departmental managers responsible for the vacancy in question. The next steps are then discussed and agreed. Within our company, the only people given access to your data are those persons who need this data to ensure our application procedure is completed correctly.

Where is applicant data processed?
All applicant data is processed solely in data centres located in the Federal Republic of Germany.


8. Data protection in relation to video surveillance at our Saerbeck site

We have installed video surveillance equipment on our premises and grounds at this site.

Purpose and legal basis of video surveillance
Video surveillance is used to safeguard our property rights, to dissuade persons from conducting activities and to preserve evidence in the event of a crime.
The legal basis for video surveillance is point (f) of Art. 6(1) of the EU GDPR, whereby our interests result from the purposes stated above.

Data recipients/data sharing
If we suspect that criminal activities have taken place, we may pass the data to law enforcement agencies.
Other than this, data is passed on or shared only if there is a legal basis for doing so. One typical case of this kind is if the police or other public safety authorities become involved in a ‘hazard control’ incident and require access to the data from the video surveillance system.

Data processing outside the European Union
Our operation of the video surveillance system does not involve the (external) processing of personal data.

Data controller:
EnviTec Biogas AG
Industriering 10a
49393 Lohne, Germany

Your rights as a data subject
You have the right of access to your personal data that we collect, process or store. You can contact us to request information about this data at any time.
If this request for information is not made in writing, please understand that we may need to ask you to provide evidence that you are the person for whom you are requesting this information. You also have rights of rectification and erasure, and to restrict processing of your data as provided for by data protection legislation. Data protection legislation also grants you the right to object to the processing of your data. Lastly, data protection law also grants you the right of data portability.
Erasure of data
All data from our video surveillance system is usually erased after 72 hours. A longer period of storage may apply if warranted, if the facts of the matter justify the assumption that the recordings from a specific period of time depict activities that are to be used as evidence in the prosecution of a criminal act or to assert claims under tort law.
If the event of illness or absence on the part of surveillance staff, video recordings may be held in storage for up to 10 days.

Right to lodge a complaint at a supervisory authority
You have the right to lodge a complaint about the processing of your personal data by us at a supervisory authority for data protection.
