We appreciate your interest in Sefar. Privacy is important to us. In the following we would like to explain to you what data we collect when our website is accessed and how this data is handled.

Collection and processing of personal data

As with almost all Internet pages, the following data are collected by default when visiting pages from our website: the name of their service provider (IP address), the website accessing the page on our website, the browser used and also the date, time and duration of the visit. This information cannot be used to identify the person accessing the site. Further data will only be saved if you give it to us specifically – for example as part of an online job-application or when answering a questionnaire. Personal data that you provide to us when you visit our website is processed in accordance with the applicable legal provisions in the European Union.

During online job-applications, your data will be saved and evaluated as part of the application process. If your application looks particularly interesting, even though we do not have a suitable vacancy at the time, we may in certain instances wish to keep a copy of your application documents beyond the duration of a single application process. In this case, however, we will first obtain your consent.

If you provide us with information via an online form, this is done via secure connections to protect your personal data from being interfered with or suffering unauthorized access. Please note that normal e-mail is not sent via secure connections.
