Your rights as a data subject

First of all, we would like to inform you of your rights as a data subject. These rights are standardised in Art. 15 - 22 EU GDPR and include:

- the right to information (Art. 15 EU GDPR)
- the right to erasure (Art. 17 EU GDPR)
- the right to rectification (Art. 16 EU GDPR)
- the right to data portability (Art. 20 EU GDPR)
- the right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 EU GDPR)
- the right to object to data processing (Art. 21 EU GDPR)

To exercise these rights, please write an email. The same applies if you have questions about data processing in our company. You also have the right to complain or appeal to a data protection regulatory body.


Objection rights

Please note the following in connection with your objection rights: If we process your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object to this form of data processing at any time without having to state your reasons. This also applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to direct advertising. If you object to your data being used for direct marketing, we will no longer process your personal data for this purpose. Your right to object is free of charge and can be made informally, if possible by email. In the event that we process your data to safeguard legitimate interests, you may object to such processing at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. We will then no longer process your personal data unless we demonstrate compelling legitimate reasons for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.


Purposes and legal bases for data processing

When processing your personal data, we comply with the provisions of the EU GDPR and all other applicable data protection regulations. The legal bases for the processing of data stem in particular from Art. 6 EU GDPR. We use your data to initiate business, to fulfil contractual and legal obligations, to implement the contractual relationship, to offer products and services and to strengthen customer relations, which may also include analyses for marketing purposes and direct advertising. Your consent is also required under data protection regulations. We will inform you in this context of the purpose of data processing and your right to withdrawal. Should the consent also include the processing of special categories of personal data, we will expressly point this out to you in the consent process. A processing of special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 Para. 1 EU GDPR will only take place if this is necessary due to legal regulations and there is no reason to assume that your legitimate interest in the exclusion of data processing prevails.


Passing on data to third parties

We will only pass on your data to third parties within the framework of the legal provisions or with your consent. Otherwise, your data will not be passed on to third parties unless we are obliged to do so due to mandatory legal provisions (passing on to external bodies such as supervisory authorities or criminal prosecution authorities).


Recipients of data

Within our company, we ensure that your data is received only by those persons who need it to fulfil their contractual and legal obligations. In many cases, service providers support our specialist departments in fulfilling their tasks. The necessary data protection contracts have been concluded with all service providers.


Data storage periods

We store your data for as long as it is needed for the respective processing purpose. Please note that numerous retention periods require that data continues to be/must be stored. This applies in particular to storage obligations embedded in commercial law or tax law (e.g. Commercial Code, Tax Code, etc.). If there are no further storage obligations, the data is routinely deleted once the purpose has been fulfilled. In addition, we may store data if you have given us permission to do so or if legal disputes arise and we use evidence within the framework of statutory limitation periods, which can last up to thirty years; the regular limitation period is three years.


Secure transmission of your data

In order to best protect the data stored with us against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons, we employ appropriate technical and organisational security measures. The security levels are continuously reviewed in cooperation with security experts and adapted to new security standards. The exchange of data from and to our website is always encrypted. We offer HTTPS as the transmission protocol for our website, in each case using the latest encryption protocols. The decryption of this data can only be carried out by us. Alternative means of communication may also be used (e.g. by post).


Obligation to provide data

Certain personal details are necessary for the establishment, performance and termination of the contractual relationship and the fulfilment of the associated contractual and legal obligations. The same applies to the use of our website and the various functions it provides. We have summarised the details for you in the above point.

Please note that it is not possible to process your enquiry or carry out the underlying contractual obligation without providing this data.

Contact form/Making contact by email

Art. 6 Para. 1 points a,b EU GDPR

A contact form is available on our website which can be used for making electronic contact. If you write to us via the contact form, we process the data you provide in the contact form in order to establish contact and answer your questions and requests. The principle of data economy and data avoidance is observed here, such that you only need to enter the data that we absolutely need to contact you. This includes, for example, your email address, contact details and the message field itself. We use this information to process your request as quickly as possible. In addition, your IP address will be processed for technical reasons and for legal protection. All other details are voluntary and can be entered optionally (e.g. for more personalised answers to your questions). If you contact us by email, we will process the personal data provided in the email solely for the purpose of processing your enquiry. If you do not use the forms provided to contact us, no additional data will be collected.



Art. 6 Para. 1 point a EU GDPR

You can subscribe to a free newsletter on our website. The email address given when registering for the newsletter will be used for sending the personalised newsletter. Here the principle of data economy and data avoidance is observed, since only the email address is marked as mandatory fields. For technical reasons and for legal protection, your IP address will also be processed when you order the newsletter. You can, of course, cancel your subscription at any time using the unsubscribe option provided in the newsletter and thus revoke your consent.


Job application portal

Art. 6 Para. 1 points a, b EU GDPR

We welcome your interest in working for Wolf ButterBack.KG. We are aware of the importance of your data and we process the personal data that you provide through the application form only for the purpose of conducting the application process efficiently and correctly and for contacting you in relation to the application process. Your data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.

On the application form, you will be asked to provide personal data. In this regard we abide by the principle of data economy and data reduction in that you are required to provide only the data that we need in order to thoroughly check your application documents, such as your CV, or that we are under a statutory obligation to collect. Such obligatory information is marked with a * (asterisk). For reasons of technical necessity and legal protection, your IP address is also processed.

Without such data we regret that we are unable to check your application documents, as a result of which our application system will not permit you to upload these documents. You do of course have the option of providing information voluntarily on the application form.

To ensure the highest possible safety and confidentiality of your data, we implement appropriate security measures. Your application documents are transferred to us in encrypted form by our application system.

We store your data for the purposes specified above until the application process is completed and the relevant deadlines have passed – no later than six months after you receive a decision. You do have the option, however, of allowing us to store your application documents for a longer period and to correlate them with other vacant positions relevant to your profile.

We need your consent to do so, which you can give by clicking the check box before uploading your application documents. In this case we also store your data for 6 months. You can, of course, withdraw your consent at any time with future effect, without needing to state a reason, by means of a telephone call to +49 (0)911 670 44 9018, by email to hr@butterback.de or by post to Wolf ButterBack KG, Magazinstrasse 77, 90763 Fürth, Germany.


Registration/Customer account

Art. 6 Para. 1 point. a,b EU GDPR

On our website, we offer users the opportunity to register by providing their personal details. This enables our customers to use our services, such as downloading our product specifications. Here the principle of data economy and data avoidance is observed, since only the details necessary for registration are marked as mandatory fields with an asterisk (*). These include, for example, email address, contact details, password and password repetition. By registering on our website, the user’s IP address, the date and time of registration are also saved (technical background data). By clicking the "Create Profile" button, you give your consent to the processing of your data. Please note: The password you have given us will be stored by us in encrypted form. Employees at our company cannot read this password. They are, therefore, unable to give you any assistance if you have forgotten your password. In this instance, use the "Forgot password" function, which will send you an automatically generated new password by email. Our employees are not permitted to ask you for your password by telephone or in writing. Please ensure that you never share your password if you receive such requests. Upon completion of the registration process, your data will be stored with us for use in the protected customer area. As soon as you log on to our website with your email address as your user name and your password, this data will be made available on our website for actions you have carried out. You can change your billing or delivery address here. Registered persons are free to make their own changes/corrections to the billing or delivery address.

Art. 6 Para. 1 point f EU GDPR, Section 25 Para. 2 TTDSG and Art. 6 Para. 1 point a EU GDPR, Section 25 Para. 1 TTDSG for consent



Art. 6 Para. 1 point a EU GDPR, Section 25 Para. 1 TTDSG

We use tracking technology on our website to measure and evaluate it and to optimise our content for our customers. The legal basis for this data processing is our legitimate interest. For the purpose of web analysis, we use Matomo (formerly Piwik), a service provided by InnoCraft Ltd., 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand, NZBN 6106769, (“Matomo”) based on cookie technology. Protecting your data is important to us, which is why we operate Matomo in our in-house data centres. In addition, we have configured the software so that your IP address is only recorded in abbreviated form. We therefore process your personal usage data anonymously. It is not possible for us to draw any conclusions about your person. Further information on the Matomo terms of use and the data protection regulations can be found at https://matomo.org/privacy/

You can withdraw your consent at any time with future effect. Simply scroll to the aforementioned item (Cookies), call up our consent banner (change consent) and deselect the relevant cookie(s). Please note that the consent banner settings will have to be changed on each individual device.


Automated individual case decisions

We do not use any fully automated handling processes in reaching a decision.


Social media

On our website you will find a link to our social media pages on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Xing. You can identify the links to the social media web pages from the relevant company logos. By following the link you will reach our company page on the relevant social medium. When you click a link to a social media network, a connection will be established to the servers of the relevant social media network. This informs the social media network’s server that you have visited our web page. In addition, further data will be transferred to the provider of the social media network. These data will include, for example:

- the address of the website where the activated link is located
- the date and time when the website was called up or the link was activated
- Information on the browser and operating system used
- IP address

In addition to ourselves, the following are also responsible for the company’s pages under the terms of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR) and other data protection provisions:

- Meta
(Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland)

- Instagram
(Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland)

- LinkedIn
(LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland)

- Xing
(News Work SE, Dammtorstrasse 30, 20354 Hamburg, Germany)

If, at the time when the link is activated, you are already logged into the relevant social media network, the provider of the social media network may be in a position to identify your username and possibly even your real name from the transferred data and associate this information with your personal user account on the social media network. You can prevent the possibility of such association with your personal user account by logging out of your user account first.

The social media networks’ servers are located in the USA and other countries outside the European Union. The provider of the social media network may therefore also process the data in countries outside the European Union. Please be aware that companies in these countries are subject to data protection law that may well not protect general personal data to the same extent as is the case in the member states of the European Union.

Please be aware that we have no influence on the scope, nature or purpose of the data processing performed by the provider of the social media network. For more detailed information on the user of your data by the social media networks to which links are included on our website, and on ways in which you can object, we refer you to the information in the following links:

In general, you have the following rights in relation to the processing of your personal data:

Right to be informed: right of correction; right of deletion; right to restrict processing; right of objection; right of data transferability; right of complaint regarding the unlawful processing of your personal data to the data protection authority responsible.

Since we do not have complete access to your personal data, however, when exercising your rights you should contact the social media providers directly, as they have relevant access to the personal data of their users and can take appropriate measures and provide relevant information.


Links to other websites

Our website also contains – clearly regognisable – links to the websites of other companies. As far as links to websites of other providers are available, we have no influence on their content. For this reason, no guarantee nor liability can be assumed for this content. The respective supplier or operator of such pages is always responsible for the content of said pages. At the time of linking, the linked pages were checked for possible and recognisable infringements of the law. At the time of linking, no illegal content was identified. However, continuous control of the content of the linked pages is not reasonable and cannot be expected without concrete indications of a violation. As soon as we become aware of any legal infringements, such links will be removed immediately.
