Notes on data protection

I. Processing of personal data

Teijin Carbon Europe GmbH attaches great importance to the protection of personal data. We therefore process your data exclusively on the basis of the applicable statutory provisions within the framework of the General Data Protection Regulation, the Federal Data Protection Act and other statutory data protection provisions.

1. Scope of the processing of personal data

As a matter of principle, we collect and use personal data of our users only to the extent that this is necessary for the provision of a functional website as well as our content and services. The collection and use of personal data of our users is regularly only carried out with the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases where it is not possible to obtain prior consent for actual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.

2. Name and address of the controller

5. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations involving personal data, Article 6 (1) (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.

When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract, Art. 6 (1) lit. b DS-GVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) lit. c DS-GVO serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 (1) lit. f DS-GVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.

6. The security of your data

The data you provide is protected by appropriate technical and organizational means with the aim of securing your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction, access by unauthorized persons or unauthorized disclosure to third parties. Our security measures are continuously monitored and improved in accordance with technological developments and organizational possibilities.

II. Provision of the website and creation of log files

1. Description and scope of data processing

Each time you visit our website, our web server automatically stores data such as

  • the address (URL) of the accessed website
  • Browser and browser version
  • the operating system used
  • the address (URL) of the previously visited page (referrer URL)
  • the hostname and IP address of the device from which access is made
  • Date and time

in files (web server log files).

The data collected is only used for statistical evaluations and to improve the website. However, the website operator reserves the right to check the server log files retrospectively if there are concrete indications of illegal use.

2. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.

3. Purpose of data processing

The storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

These purposes are also our legitimate interest in data processing according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.

4. Duration of storage

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected, but at the latest after 7 days.

5. Possibility of objection and elimination

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.

III. Cookies

1. Description and scope of data processing

It may happen that we use so-called cookies in some areas of our Internet offer. Cookies are small data elements that an Internet server can send to your computer. When a user calls up a website, a cookie may be stored on the user's operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic string of characters that enables the browser to be uniquely identified when the website is called up again.

We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. Some elements of our website require that the calling browser can be identified even after a page change.

During your visit to our website, a cookie only identifies your computer. If you wish to decide individually whether to accept or reject a cookie, you can configure this via your Internet browser.

2. Legal basis

The use of technically mandatory cookies, i.e. those without which our website would not function properly, is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f DS-GVO and serves to protect our legitimate interests in a functional and optimized presentation of our offer as well as the security and stability of our website, which are overriding in the context of a balancing of interests.

Insofar as we want to use cookies that are not absolutely necessary for the operation of this website and insofar as they are not covered by our legitimate interests in an optimal presentation of our offer and the security and stability of our website pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO, we require your prior consent, Art. 6 (1) lit. a DS-GVO.

We obtain this consent via a so-called cookie banner when you visit our website for the first time. Here you have the option to allow or prohibit us from using the cookies listed below. We would like to point out that you may not be able to use all the functions of our website if you do not give your cookie consent for all cookies that are not necessary. The presentation of the website may also suffer as a result.

You can revoke your consent to the use of the various cookies at any time with effect for the future.

You can revoke your consent to the setting of all cookies that are not technically necessary for the operation of the website or for security reasons at any time with effect for the future by clicking on this link or changing your cookie settings. You also have the option to send us your revocation by e-mail to the e-mail address mentioned above under the controller or to our data protection officer.

3. Purpose of data processing

Which data is processed by a cookie and for what purpose depends on the respective cookie. You can find details on this under the respective IT services or tools in the further course of our data protection information that use the respective cookie. You can also find detailed information in the privacy notices or cookie policies of the respective providers. As a rule, the following personal data may be affected:

  • IP address (usually anonymous)
  • the called website
  • the website from which the user arrived at the page accessed on our website (referrer)
  • the subpages that are accessed from the website
  • Time and duration of the visit to the website
  • Frequency of website visits
  • Sequence of the page call

4. Are there other recipients of the personal data besides the data controller?

If third party IT services or tools are used, the cookies used are usually stored and processed by the respective third party, and these third parties may in turn use service providers to assist them in the provision of their services, and in this context may also receive the data collected by the cookie.

5. Duration of storage, possibility of objection and elimination

Some of the cookies we use are deleted after the end of the browser session, i.e. after you close your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your terminal device and allow us to recognize your browser on your next visit (persistent cookies). You can view the duration of storage in the cookie settings of your web browser. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and decide individually whether you want to accept them or exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general. Each browser differs in the way it manages cookie settings. This is described in the help menu of each browser, which explains how you can change your cookie settings. You can find this for each browser at the following links: (these are examples of the links to common "German" browser settings).

Internet Explorer™:
Microsoft Edge™:
Opera™ :

If cookies are not accepted, the functionality of our website may be limited.

We also use cookies on our website that enable an analysis of the user's surfing behavior. In this way, the following data can be transmitted:

  • Search terms entered
  • frequency of page views

The user data collected in this way is pseudonymized by technical precautions. Therefore, an assignment of the data to the calling user is no longer possible. The data is not stored together with other personal data of the users.

A list of the cookies used can be found below under the Cookie Reference Table of this Privacy Policy.

You can find more information about the storage period in the cookie reference table.

IV. General information about data transfer to the USA when using services for improving functionality, statistics and web analysis on our websites

According to the judgment of the European Court of Justice of July 16, 2020 (Case C-311/18 "Schrems II"), the USA is to be classified as a state with an inadequate level of data protection according to EU standards. In particular, the lack of effective legal protection for data subjects is assessed as insufficient by the ECJ. This means that, in particular, there is a risk that your data as an affected website visitor may be processed by U.S. authorities for control and monitoring purposes in connection with the use of cookies, without you having any legal remedies against this.

As long as there is no adequacy decision by the EU Commission certifying that the USA has an EU-adequate level of data protection, or a corresponding agreement has been concluded between the EU and the USA, a certain degree of legal uncertainty remains with every data transfer to the USA, which we can limit with all possible means, but ultimately cannot completely eliminate. For this reason, we place the decision as to whether your data may be transferred to providers or services for which we cannot exclude with absolute certainty a data transfer to the USA or access to this from the USA in your hands as the affected user. We ask for your consent to our use of these services with potential third country reference in advance anyway, as they also use cookies and similar technologies that lead to the fundamental need for consent for these services. Since the use of these services and providers is inextricably linked to the possibility of a data transfer to the USA that we cannot prevent, you can also only allow us to use them under this premise. Therefore, we base this data transfer and processing there exceptionally on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 49 (1) lit. a DS-GVO. This is done by means of a corresponding note on third country transfer and your express consent in the context of our cookie banner.

If you wish to prevent any transfer of your data to the USA, please do not give us your consent to use services or providers for which we cannot guarantee this. You will find a corresponding note on this in the presentation of the services and providers in question within the scope of this data protection notice.

V. Statistics, marketing and advertising cookies

1. Web analysis

This website uses the web analysis tool "Matomo" from the provider InnoCraft Ltd (150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand). The purpose of its use is the "needs-based design" of this website, which is carried out on the basis of a weighing of interests. The web analysis also enables us to detect and correct website errors, e.g. due to broken links. Matomo uses cookies. These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie in the pseudonymous user profile is not used to personally identify the visitor to this website and is not merged with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym. If you do not agree with the storage and analysis of this data from your visit, then you can object to the storage and use below by clicking at any time. In this case, an opt-out cookie will be placed in your browser, which means that Matomo will not collect any session data. Please note that the complete deletion of your cookies means that the opt-out cookie is also deleted and may have to be reactivated by you.

For more information on Matomo's terms of use and privacy notices, please visit:

2. Remarketing

We use the remarketing function within the Google Ads service. The remarketing function allows us to present users of our website with advertisements based on their interests on other websites within the Google advertising network (in Google Search or on YouTube, so-called "Google Ads" or on other websites). For this purpose, the interaction of the users on our website is analyzed, e.g. which offers the user was interested in, in order to be able to display targeted advertising to the users on other sites even after they have visited our website. For this purpose, Google stores a number in the browsers of users who visit certain Google services or websites in the Google display network. This number, known as a "cookie", is used to record the visits of these users. This number is used to uniquely identify a web browser on a specific end device and not to identify a person; personal data is not stored.

You can prevent participation in this tracking process in various ways:

  • a) by adjusting your browser software settings accordingly, in particular, the suppression of third-party cookies will result in you not receiving ads from third-party providers;
  • b) by installing the plug-in provided by Google at the following link:;
  • c) by deactivating the interest-based ads of the providers that are part of the self-regulatory campaign "About Ads" via the link, whereby this setting will be deleted if you delete your cookies;
  • d) by permanent deactivation in your browsers Firefox, Internetexplorer or Google Chrome under the link,
  • e) by means of the corresponding cookies setting. Please note that in this case you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

3. Hubspot

We use services from Hubspot on our website for our online marketing activities. This is an integrated software solution that we use to cover various aspects of our online marketing, such as for the following purposes:

  • Content management (blog),
  • Social media publishing & reporting,
  • Reporting (e.g. traffic sources, hits, etc. ...),
  • Landing pages and contact forms

We use the integrated software to enable technically flawless communication with you and for our online activities. Our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) of the German Data Protection Act (DS-GVO), which forms the legal basis for the use of Hubspot, is based on technically flawless communication with you. For tracking as part of our marketing activities, the legal basis is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. a, in that you give us your consent as part of the cookie banner. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. Furthermore, the legal basis may be the initiation or conclusion of a contract, provided that the communication is directed towards the purchase of our products (Art. 6 para 1 lit. b DS-GVO).

The services of Hubspot are offered by a provider from the United States. The processing of personal data takes place in a so-called "third country". We use Hubspot on the basis of the EU standard contractual clauses. The scope of data collection and storage by Hubspot and Hubspot's privacy policy can be found at

Duration of storage:

We process your data only as long as they are needed to achieve the aforementioned purpose. In the present case, this means in principle until the end of the communication with you, unless the data is required beyond this for the fulfillment of contractual obligations or there is a legal obligation to retain the data beyond this point in time. For the duration of the storage of technically unnecessary cookies, see above under III. cookies.

VI. Functional cookies and functionality enhancement cookies

1. Google maps

This website uses the map service Google Maps via an API. In order to use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to store your IP address. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transfer.

Google Maps is used to make it easier to find the places we indicate on the website.

If you use the Google Maps service by clicking on it, Google will collect and store your data. Before using the map service, please inform yourself about the type and scope of the data collection there and the further processing and use of the data by Google as the provider of the map service, as well as about your rights and setting options for protecting your privacy, which you can find out about in Google's data protection information

Please note that from this point on, the terms of use and privacy information of the respective third-party provider as operator of the social network apply. Below you will find information on the terms of use and privacy policy of the individual third-party providers.

We would also like to point out that in the case of requests for information or the assertion of rights of the data subject, direct contact with the respective third party provider may be more effective, as usually only the third party provider has access to the users' data and can take the appropriate measures and provide information.

We integrate Youtube videos on our website. With the help of a plug-in, interesting video material can be displayed directly on our website. In the process, certain data may be transferred from you to Youtube.

When you visit a page on our website that has a Youtube video embedded, your browser connects to the servers of Youtube. This results in a data transmission. This data is collected, stored and processed on the Youtube servers. Regardless of whether you have a Youtube account or not, Youtube collects data about you. This includes your IP address, technical info about your browser type, operating system or very basic device information. In addition, Youtube stores information about which website you use the Youtube service and what web activities you perform on our website. These web activities include, for example, session duration, bounce rate or on which button you clicked on our website with built-in Youtube function. Youtube may track or store these actions using cookies and similar technologies. Please note that from this point on, you are subject to Youtube's terms of use and privacy information.

If you are logged in to Youtube as a registered member, more data can usually be collected, as more cookies may have already been set in your browser. In addition, your actions on our website are directly linked to your Youtube account. To prevent this, you must log out of Youtube while browsing our website.

Youtube is part of Google and uses servers in the USA and also in other countries. Your data may therefore also be stored on servers in America.

As a basis for data processing for recipients located in third countries outside the European Union or a data transfer there, Youtube or Google uses so-called standard contractual clauses. Through these clauses, Youtube undertakes to comply with the European level of data protection when processing your relevant data, even if the data is stored, processed or managed in the USA.

More information on data protection at Youtube, the standard contractual clauses as well as the use of cookies can be found above under the general notes on third country transfer as well as under:

We have, as far as provided by the third party provider, concluded corresponding data protection agreements according to Art. 26 DS-GVO (joint responsibility) or Art. 28 (commissioned processing).

The internet offer of Teijin Carbon Europe GmbH contains links to other websites. We are not responsible for the data protection or the content of these other websites. We recommend that Internet users who leave our Internet site inform themselves about the respective data protection information of the other Internet sites they visit.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by the providers, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, can be found in the providers' data protection notices.

II. General information on the processing of applicant data

In order for us to be able to involve you in application procedures for a specific position, you are required to submit customary and meaningful application documents informing us about your personality profile and qualifications.

As a matter of principle, we only use your application documents to decide whether to fill the position for which you have expressly applied. In the course of the application process, further personal data may be collected from you personally or from generally accessible sources for this information purpose. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 2 letter b in conjunction with. Art. 28 DS-GVO. If the application process does not lead to your employment, we will regularly delete and destroy your applicant data as soon as a period of six months has elapsed after the conclusion of the application process for the position in question. This does not apply if legal provisions prevent deletion, if you have expressly consented to longer storage or if we invoke a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) f) DSGVO.

However, if you submit a speculative application that does not relate to a specific position, we may consult your application documents in the context of filling decisions on all positions under consideration. We will regularly delete and destroy your application data after a period of six months from receipt of your application, but not before all application procedures to which your application documents have been added up to that point have been completed and a period of six months has elapsed since then.

In order to provide us with an overview of our applicant spectrum, we can statistically evaluate information on the applications received. For this purpose, we may retain anonymized data even after deletion of your application documents, which do not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.

III. Data processing after discontinuation

Should an application procedure lead to a recruitment, we will include your application documents in your personnel file on the basis of Art. 6 (1) sentence 2 lit. b DS-GVO in order to provide information about your personality profile and qualifications for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship. In this case, we will inform you about the further processing purposes and the relevant deletion periods in a separate data protection statement.
