We are delighted that you have chosen to visit our website and are interested in our company and products.

CREATON GmbH takes data protection very seriously. Data form the foundation for us to provide an excellent service. The protection of your privacy and your personal data is a top priority of ours. This is why we consider compliance with the statutory data protection regulations as a matter of course. 

Visiting the website  

When you visit our website, you do so on an anonymous basis. However, your browser does transmit technical data during this process. What data this actually involves is within your discretion and should be checked by you by querying your provider. We have no influence over this.  

From the data transmitted to us, we collect the browser type, name, version, plug-ins, Java version, Flash version and the operating system of your PC. Data is stored in anonymised form and exclusively serve internal system and statistical purposes. It is not possible to personally identify someone from this data and this is also not intended.  

Use of personal data, purpose limitation, forwarding and legal basis 

Furthermore, personal data is only stored where you voluntarily provide us with such, e.g. in the contact form, when subscribing to the electronic newsletter, when registering for the advanced training programme at CREATON Campus and when participating in a competition. We only process the personal data transmitted on this occasion for the purpose for which it was provided to us. Once this purpose has been fulfilled, the data is deleted or, in the case of existing statutory retention periods, blocked.  

If you register for the advanced training programme at CREATON Campus or take part in a competition, we will only save and use the data specified by you in the registration form, including name, address, company, e-mail and telephone, for the purposes of correspondence with you and for conducting the seminar or competition in accordance with Article 6 (1) lit. b GDPR. 

If you subscribe to our newsletter, then your name and e-mail address are exclusively stored and used for the purpose of sending the newsletter. The data will not be forwarded to a third party. If you no longer wish to receive the newsletter, you will find a link in every newsletter that simplifies cancellation for you. Please click on it and follow the instructions. In this case, your data is processed in accordance with Article 6 (1) lit. b GDPR. 

The personal data that you send us via the contact form of the website or e-mail is only processed for the purpose of correspondence with you as well as for the purpose according to Article 6 (1) lit. b GDPR, for which you have provided us with the data (e.g. in order to answer technical questions, for marketing and sales). This is not used for other purposes or forwarded to third parties, unless you have explicitly agreed to this beforehand by issuing consent in accordance with Article 6 (1) lit. a GDPR. 

We are happy to send you information materials by post and by e-mail, should you request this from us. You therefore agree to CREATON GmbH storing and using your address and e-mail address for these purposes in accordance with Article 6 (1) lit. b GDPR. This data is exclusively forwarded for the purposes of sending to the third party assigned to this. Otherwise, no data forwarding takes place. 

You are entitled to revoke your consent with future effect at any time and object to the use of your personal data for these purposes at any time. Please send your revocation to CREATON GmbH, Revocation, Dillinger Str. 60, 86637 Wertingen or to info@creaton.de.

Please note that you alone are responsible for the accuracy of your data. Your data is not forwarded to companies or persons outside of the associated companies pursuant to Section 18 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG) or used for other purposes under any circumstances. Data may be handled for statistical purposes (e.g. reporting). It is not possible to personally identify anyone in the process. 
 

If we have invited you to an interview, the interview may also be conducted digitally by means of video transmission (image and video recordings). Image and sound recordings are not recorded in this case.


Your data is only processed and used for the purposes of consultation, advertising and market research with your explicit consent pursuant to Article 6 Paragraph 1 Clause a GDPR, which must be obtained separately. 

We save your information in our applicant management system until the application procedure has been concluded, however for no longer than 6 months. Storage of your data beyond this only takes place where you have granted us your explicit consent for this purpose as set out in Article 6 Paragraph 1 Clause a GDPR. In this case, your personal data (surname, first name, home address, e-mail address, telephone numbers, letters, cover letters, CV, certificates, references and information from the interview) is processed for the retention period of 2 years. This is done to facilitate contacting you in the future for professional purposes and considering you in the event of a vacancy at the company. Should you grant us your consent for this purpose, you are entitled to revoke it at any time free of charge. Following the expiry of the aforementioned periods, your information will be erased in full.

Cookies are small text files used by websites to make the user experience more efficient.

By law, we may store cookies on your device if they are strictly necessary for the operation of this site. We need your permission for all other types of cookies. With your consent pursuant to Article 6 (1) (a) of the General Data Protection (GDPR) in the Cookie Consent Manager (which can be withdrawn at any time), we also transmit data to third-party providers for this purpose, including outside the EEA. This also includes your consent pursuant to Article 49 (1) (a) GDPR. This applies with the exception of the necessary cookies. The legal basis for processing cookies required for the operation of the website is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. You can withdraw your consent at any time with future effect by changing the setting in the Cookie Consent Manager to inactive.

This site uses different types of cookies. Some cookies are placed by third parties that feature on our website.

You also have the option of visiting our website without cookies. Most browsers accept cookies automatically. You can prevent cookies from being stored on your hard drive by selecting "Do not accept cookies" in your browser settings. Please refer to your browser manufacturer's instructions for detailed information as to how this works. You can delete cookies already placed on your computer at any time. However, if you do not accept any cookies, this may result in certain functions of our website being restricted.

Google Tag Manager

This website uses Google Tag Manager. This service allows website tags to be managed via an interface. Google Tag Manager only implements tags. This means that no cookies are used and no personal data are collected. Google Tag Manager triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. However, Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If it has been deactivated at domain or cookie level, it remains in place for all tracking tags, insofar as these are implemented with Google Tag Manager.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. Mountain View, USA ("Google"). Google Analytics uses cookies to facilitate analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by cookies about your use of this website, including

  • browser type/version,
  • operating system used,
  • referrer URL (site previously visited),
  • host name of the accessing computer (IP address) and
  • time of server request,

is normally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, by using IP anonymisation on this website, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is only transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there in exceptional cases. Please note that the code "anonymizeIp" has been added to Google Analytics on this website in order to ensure that IP addresses are collected in anonymous format (known as IP masking). The Court of Justice of the European Union has assessed the USA to be a country that does not have an adequate level of data protection in comparison to EU standards. In particular, there is a risk that your data may be processed by US authorities for control and monitoring purposes, possibly without recourse to legal remedies. If you click on "Accept only necessary cookies", the transmission described above will not take place. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyse your use of the website to compile reports on website activities and to render services to the website operator in relation to website use and Internet use. Google uses pseudonyms for this purpose. Google promises that the IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not linked to other data by Google. The legal basis for the processing of your personal data by Google Analytics is your consent given in the Cookie Consent Manager pursuant to Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR and Article 49 (1) (a) GDPR. You can withdraw your consent at any time with future effect by changing the setting in the Cookie Consent Manager. You can prevent the collection of data by Google Analytics by changing the Statistics cookies to inactive in the cookie settings. If you click on "Accept only necessary cookies", the transmission described above will not take place.

You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookies and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google and the processing of these data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

You can prevent the collection of data by Google Analytics by following the link provided under "Cookies" and changing your previous entries. An opt-out cookie will be placed, which prevents the future collection of your data when you visit this website:

We also use Google Analytics to analyse data from AdWords for statistical purposes. Should you wish to prevent this, you can disable this in the Ad Settings Manager (https://adssettings.google.com). By using our website, you agree to the processing of data collected about you by Google Analytics in the manner described above for the aforementioned purpose.

Google reCAPTACHA

We use the reCAPTCHA function of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google") on this website. This function is primarily used to distinguish whether a submission is made by a natural person or improperly on the basis of machine and automated processing. The service involves sending the IP address and any other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google.

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data by Google reCAPTCHA is your consent given in the Cookie Consent Manager pursuant to Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR and Article 49 (1) (a) GDPR. You can withdraw your consent at any time with future effect by changing the setting in the Cookie Consent Manager. The purpose of processing is to establish individual responsibility on the Internet and to prevent misuse and spam. The use of Google reCAPTCHA may also result in the transmission of personal data to the servers of Google LLC in the USA. The Court of Justice of the European Union has assessed the USA to be a country that does not have an adequate level of data protection in comparison to EU standards. In particular, there is a risk that your data may be processed by US authorities for control and monitoring purposes, possibly without recourse to legal remedies. Further information on Google reCAPTCHA and Google's Privacy Policy can be found at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en

In order to disable Google reCAPTCHA JavaScript must be disabled in your browser. However, please note that in this case you will not be able to use the verification service. By using our website, you agree to the processing of data collected about you by reCAPTCHA in the manner described above for the aforementioned purpose.

Google Ads

This website uses the online advertising program "Google Ads" and, within the scope of Google Ads, the conversion tracking service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google"). We use the Google Ads service to draw attention to our attractive offers on external websites with the help of advertising media (known as Google AdWords). We can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are in relation to the data of the advertising campaigns. Our aim is to show you advertising that is of interest to you, to make our website more interesting for you and to calculate incurred advertising costs fairly.

The conversion tracking cookie is placed when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google. These cookies usually expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can identify that the user has clicked on the ad and been redirected to this page. Each Google Ads client receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the websites of Google Ads customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Google Ads customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers find out the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can block this use by disabling the Google conversion tracking cookie in your Internet browser under "User settings". You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. The use of Google Ads may also result in the transmission of personal data to Google LLC servers in the USA. The legal basis for the processing of your personal data by Google Ads is your consent in the Cookie Consent Manager pursuant to Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR and Article 49 (1) (a) GDPR. The Court of Justice of the European Union has assessed the USA to be a country that does not have an adequate level of data protection in comparison to EU standards. In particular, there is a risk that your data may be processed by US authorities for control and monitoring purposes, possibly without recourse to legal remedies. You can withdraw your consent at any time with future effect by changing the setting in the Cookie Consent Manager. You can opt out of collection by Google Ads by changing the Marketing cookies to inactive in the cookie settings. If you click on "Accept only necessary cookies", the transmission described above will not take place. Further information on Google Ads and Google's Privacy Policy can be found at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en. You can permanently object to the placement of cookies by Google Ads conversion tracking by downloading and installing the Google browser plug-in available via the following link: https://support.google.com/ads/answer/7395996

Please note that certain functions of this website may not be available or may be restricted if you disable the use of cookies. By using our website, you agree to the processing of data collected about you by Google Ads in the manner described above for the aforementioned purpose.

Google Re-Marketing

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data by Google remarketing is your consent given in the Cookie Consent Manager pursuant to Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR and Article 49 (1) (a) GDPR.
