Uniper attaches great importance to the protection of personal data and is committed to protecting the data of people who visit our websites. Uniper SE, Holzstraße 6, 40221 Düsseldorf, Germany, processes personal data collected during visits to our website in accordance with the laws on data protection and data security and is the data controller  in this respect. This privacy policy tells you how Uniper handles information that is collected during your visit to the Uniper website. 

This Privacy Policy applies to our website www.jobs.uniper.energy 

1. Collection and processing of personal data

Personal data is all information about your identity, such as your name, your e-mail address or your postal address. Unless you have agreed otherwise with Uniper, Uniper only collects simple personal data that is necessary for our business relationship, such as your name, job title, address, telephone number, e-mail address and other contact details. Such data is only collected if you make it available to Uniper, e.g. if you order information material and use a contact form for this purpose or request this via e-mail, subscribe to an e-mail information service, apply for a job online via our applicant portal or participate in a survey or competition. Uniper only collects this data directly from you and not from other third parties. In this respect, the legal basis for the processing arises from Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. b) GDPR.

2. Use and disclosure of personal data

Uniper will use your personal data to respond to your inquiry, process your order or provide you access to special information or offers you have requested from us. For example, if you fill out an online contact form, Uniper will use this information to contact you regarding your interest in the Services. In this respect, the legal basis for the processing arises from Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. b) GDPR. 

Uniper may also use personal data of its customers and data of participants for marketing purposes, if necessary, insofar as they have expressly consented to this in accordance with Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a) GDPR. In this case, Uniper will use the information you provide to contact you to discuss your interest in the Services and to send you information about the company, its subsidiaries and affiliates, such as promotions or events. For this purpose it may also be necessary for Uniper to pass on your data to group companies or external service providers within the scope of commissioned data processing. For example, Uniper may need to share customer information for customer relationship management purposes. 

If you have agreed to the processing of your personal data, you can revoke this agreement at any time with effect for the future. Revocation of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent. 

Uniper will not sell or otherwise market your personal data to third parties or pass it on for their advertising purposes. Insofar as you have expressly consented to this in accordance with Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a) GDPR, Uniper shall pass on your data to its subsidiaries and partner companies so that they can contact you directly. You have the right to revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. This does not affect the lawfulness of the processing until revocation. 

3. Duration of storage

Uniper will only store your personal data for as long as it is necessary to provide the services or information you have requested and for the duration of our business relationship. In addition, we only store your data to the extent necessary to comply with statutory retention obligations or for the duration of legal disputes in order to protect our legitimate interests. We will delete your data immediately if they are no longer needed for the purposes mentioned. 

4. Automatically collected information

When you access the Uniper website, general information is collected automatically (i.e. not through registration). The following data is saved automatically: 

  • the abbreviated and thus anonymized IP address. The reduction rules out any possibility of reference to a person.

  • the web pages you have visited in the Uniper offer.

We use the "extended data protection mode" option provided by YouTube. 

When you call up a page that has an embedded video, a connection is established to the YouTube servers and the content is displayed on the website by informing your browser.

With your consent, you simultaneously give your consent pursuant to Art. 49 (1) sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO for your data to be processed by companies in or from the USA.

If you do not consent, no transfer will take place, but some features of this site may be restricted.
