BCD Chemie may share the information collected with third parties for further processing to provide a safe, efficient and customized experience.

These agents, contractors or partners are restricted from using this data in any way other than to provide services for BCD Chemie, or for the collaboration in which they and BCD Chemie are engaged (for example, some of our products are developed and marketed through joint agreements with other companies). BCD Chemie may, for example, provide your information to agents, contractors or partners for hosting our databases, data processing or mailing you information that you requested.
Where processing is to be carried out by agents, contractors or partners on behalf of BCD Chemie, the contractors provide sufficient guarantees to implement appropriate technical and organizational measures in such a manner that processing will meet the requirements of the data protection law. Processing by an agent, contractor or partner shall be governed by a written contract.

In other cases, the transmission will be done preferably according to the requirements of applicable regulations with appropriate safeguards, and on condition that enforceable data subject rights and effective legal remedies for data subjects are available or, by using of binding corporate rules. Finally, if these options were not possible, the data transfers we have to make will be in accordance to the provisions of Article 49 GDPR, for example with the explicit consent of the data subject.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from an authorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means and the applicable legal requirements.
The treatment of special categories of personal data
BCD Chemie shall use and/or disclose special categories of personal data only for the purpose for which it was provided either based on your consent, or if the use or disclosure of the sensitive information is permitted by law.

Parallel to the human resources department, only the corresponding manager has access to your personal data. In the case of a negative decision by the manager, this access will be revoked and only the respective person in the human resources department has access your data. Obtaining and storing applicants’ personal data is necessary in order to carry out the application process, initiated by the applicant, and to make decisions about the potential working relationship. BCD Chemie deletes personal data when the application process has been completed. However, access to personal data will be restricted if there are any legal obligations to keep it.
