3. Provision of Website and Log Files
(1) Where our website is used purely for information purposes, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise transfer information to us, we only collect the personal data that your browser sends to us. If you wish to view our website, we collect the following data which is necessary for technical reasons in order to display our website to you and ensure its stability and security (the legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1), sentence 1 (f) GDPR):

  • Date and time of request

In the case of anonymisation, IP addresses are changed in such a way that the individual details about personal or factual circumstances can no longer be assigned to a specific or identifiable natural person, or only with a disproportionately large expenditure of time, cost and manpower.

4. Cookies
(1) In addition to the aforementioned log-file data, cookies are stored on your computer when you use our website. Cookies are small text files that are assigned to and stored on your hard disk by your browser and which send certain information to the operator that sets the cookie (in this case, us). Cookies cannot execute programs or transmit viruses to your computer. They help to make our website more user-friendly and efficient.
(2) Use of cookies:
a) This website uses the following types of cookie whose scope and function is described below:
  • Session cookies (see b)
  • Persistent cookies (see c).
b) Session cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. They store what is known as a session-ID enabling various requests from your browser to be assigned to the session. This enables us to identify your computer the next time you visit our website. Session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.
c) Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specific time which may differ depending on the cookie. You can delete cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time.
(3) Why do we set cookies?
a) Settings and function
When you visit our website, the country and language, that is either detected automatically or selected by you, is saved in cookies so that you do not have to re-enter them on subsequent visits. Before this, we check whether your browser supports cookies and this information is stored in another cookie. Local contact information based on the country and language will then be displayed, and will also be saved. Legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1), sentence 1 (b) GDPR.
b) Analytics
We use the web analysis service Piwik in order to ensure the continuous improvement of our internet site for our customers and potential customers. By using these cookies, we obtain information from Google about the use of our internet site. For example, we find out how often and in what order the individual pages are accessed and on average how much time visitors spend on our site. We find out whether users have already visited our website previously. Legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1), sentence 1 (f) GDPR.
 See Section 7 Web Analysis Services
(4) Controlling cookies
You can configure your browser settings to suit your own preferences and e.g. manage or refuse acceptance of third-party cookies or any cookies as desired. You can delete existing cookies by way of your browser settings. We would point out, that doing this may prevent you from using all the functions of this website.

5. Email Contact
(1) On its website, Aluminium Rheinfelden provides the contact details of the relevant people to contact. Legal basis for processing data transmitted in the course of sending a contact request by email is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Where the purpose of the email contact is to conclude a contract, the additional legal basis for processing it is Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR. Where the contact request aims to initiate an employment contract, the legal basis is Section 26 German Data Protection Act (BDSG).
(2) Data is deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for achieving the purpose for which it was collected. As regards personal data from the input mask on the contact form and that which was sent by email, this is the case when the relevant conversation with the user is finished. The conversation is finished when the circumstances indicate that the matter has been conclusively dealt with.

6. Online Job Application
(1) Job vacancies are advertised on our website under the heading “Career”. The person to contact for information about the relevant job is indicated, together with their contact details. In order to deal with your online job application, we collect, process and use your personal data. Your online application data is transmitted by email directly to the HR department and will of course be treated confidentially. Appropriate technical and organisational measures ensure that your personal data is handled confidentially in accordance with the statutory provisions.
(2) When completing your online application, please take note that the data is transmitted by email in unencrypted form and that unauthorised persons may be able to access or falsify the data under certain circumstances. You may of course send us your documents by post. If you are applying for a specific position which has already been filled, or if we consider you to be equally or better suited to another position, we will be happy to forward your application to another department within our company. Please inform us if you do not agree to this procedure. At the end of the application process, but after no more than 6 months, your personal data will be deleted automatically unless you give your express consent to a longer storage period.

7. Web Analysis Services
(1) This website uses the web analysis service Piwik in order to analyse the use of our website and ensure its regular improvement. The statistics obtained enable us to improve our content and make it more interesting for you as a user. Legal basis for using Piwik is Art. 6 (1), sentence 1 (f) GDPR. (2) For the purpose of this analysis, cookies (for more details on this see Section 3 herein) are stored on your computer. The information collected is stored by the controller exclusively on its server in Germany. You can stop the analysis by deleting any existing cookies and preventing the storage of cookies. If you prevent the storage of cookies, we would point out that this may also prevent you from using this website to its full extent. You can prevent the storage of cookies by way of the settings on your browser.
This website uses Piwik with the extension "AnonymizeIP". This means that IP addresses will be processed in a shortened form thereby preventing any direct identification of the user. The address transmitted from your browser by way of Piwik will not be combined with other data collected by us.
(4) The Piwik program is an open-source project. Information from third-party providers regarding data privacy is available at

8. Automated Decision Making
In principle, we do not use fully automated decision-making pursuant to Article 22 DSGVO to establish and carry out the business relationship.

9. Profiling
In order to provide you with targeted information and advise you about products, in certain circumstances, we and/or our commissioned service providers use web analysis tools, particularly tracking technology. These facilitate appropriate communication and advertising. In this regard, we refer to Section 6 Web Analysis Services.
