Collection and processing of personal data

Personal data is all information relating to your identity, such as your name, e-mail address or postal address. Such data is only stored if you submit this to EEW Energy from Waste GmbH, e.g. when you order information material, fill out a contact form or submit an online job application. Together with other information, the IP address of your computer, for example, can also be personal data.

Use and disclosure of personal data

Your choice

You decide freely what information you submit to EEW Energy from Waste GmbH. If you do not wish to submit any information it may be that you will be unable to use certain services, such as contact forms or the like.

Information collected automatically

When you access the website of EEW Energy from Waste GmbH, general information is collected automatically (i.e. not via registration) which is used in non-personalised form. The web servers used save as standard

  • the name of your Internet Service Provider (in the case of company networks the name of your company),
  • the website you last visited,
  • the websites you have visited through sites of EEW Energy from Waste GmbH,
  • the names of the files accessed,
  • the date and time they were accessed
  • and possibly the operating system and browser version of your computer

This information is evaluated in an anonymised form. It is used exclusively to improve the appeal, content and functionality of the website. Personalised user profiles are not created. There is no further use or disclosure of this data.

Personal data in the contact form

If you wish to contact us via the SSL-secured form integrated into the website, we need to collect your data, such as your name, e-mail address, postal address and telephone number. Your personal data will be used only to process your enquiry, i.e. exclusively for the purpose for which you provided the information.

This submission of your personal details is done on an expressly voluntary basis and you agree that we may also contact you via this communication data to deal with your enquiry.

If you request information using the contact form or send us an e-mail, this data is stored by us until we have dealt with your enquiry or until expiry of any statutory retention duties. We will ensure that the data is stored so that it is secure against unauthorised access by third parties.

Information for applicants

EEW takes data protection very seriously. In our data processing we adhere strictly to the statutory provisions, in particular the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the German Data Protection Act (BDSG).

Responsibility for this data processing lies with EEW Energy from Waste GmbH, Schöninger Straße 2-3, 38350 Helmstedt.

The above-mentioned company assumes the function of a central personnel department for the companies of EEW. If the job for which you have applied is advertised by a company other than EEW Energy from Waste GmbH, then EEW Energy from Waste GmbH assumes the function of the personnel department on the legal basis of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. An overview of our corporate structure can be found here.

You can contact the Data Protection Officer of EEW Energy from Waste GmbH at EEW Energy from Waste GmbH, Data Protection Officer, Schöninger Straße 2-3 ,38350 Helmstedt, extdsb(at)

Aim and legal basis of data processing.

The processing of your data serves to process your application. The processing of your data is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures resulting from your enquiry.  If your application is successful, the processing also serves to perform a contract to which you are a party as an involved person. In both cases the processing is carried out on the basis of Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR.

Data storage

Your personal data will be stored for the duration of the application process and beyond that for 6 months and will then be deleted.

Deviating from this, our confirmation of receipt of your application will be stored as business correspondence for six years and then deleted. Only the data contained in this receipt of confirmation, in particular your name, the contact details you gave, the date of your application and the name of the job for which you applied are subject to this storage. This extended period of storage serves compliance with legal obligations and is based upon Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR and Section 257 of the German Commercial Code (HGB).

If your personal data is required beyond this (for instance in connection with the assertion or defence of civil law claims in connection with your application) it will be deleted as soon as continued storage of the data is no longer necessary for this purpose. In this case too the storage is based upon Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

Rights of the data subject

You have the right

  • to be informed of the data stored by the controller, i.e. EEW, and the purpose of the processing (Article 15 GDPR),
  • to correction of inaccurate or completion of incomplete data (Article 16 GDPR),
  • to deletion of any illegally processed or no longer required data (Article 17 GDPR),
  • to restrict the processing (Article 18 GDPR)
  • to object to the processing, in particular if this is done to protect the justified interests of the controller (Article 21 GDPR)
  • to transmission of data if the processing is based upon consent or the performance of a contract or is done using automated processes (Article 20 GDPR).

To assert your legal rights you can contact us in the way most convenient for you, for instance through the Data Protection Officer of EEW.

Possibility to lodge a complaint

You also have the option of lodging a complaint with our Data Protection Officer using the contact details given above or you may also contact the responsible data protection supervisory authority.

Children should not send personal data to the EEW website without permission from parents or guardians. EEW Energy from Waste GmbH offers an assurance that it will not knowingly collect personal data from children, nor in any way use this or disclose it to third parties.

Links to other website

This declaration on data protection applies to the presentation of EEW Energy from Waste GmbH on The websites in this Internet presentation may contain links to other providers within and outside the EEW group to which this privacy statement does not apply. If you leave the EEW website it is recommended that you read carefully the data protection guideline of every website which collects personal data.


We use the platform to post our own videos and make them publicly accessible. YouTube is the service of a third party not affiliated with us, namely YouTube LLC.

Some of the Internet pages of our website contain links or connections to the YouTube website. In general, we are not responsible for the content of linked websites. However, if you follow a link to YouTube, we would like to point out that YouTube stores the data of its users (e.g. personal information, IP address) in accordance with its own data usage guidelines and uses it for business purposes.

We also directly embed videos stored on YouTube on some of our Internet pages. With this integration, content from the YouTube website is displayed in parts of a browser window. However, the YouTube videos are only called up by clicking on them separately. This technique is also called "framing". When you call up a (sub-)page of our website on which YouTube videos are embedded in this form, a connection is established to the YouTube servers and the content is displayed on the website by informing your browser.

YouTube content is only integrated in "extended data protection mode". YouTube itself provides this mode and thus ensures that YouTube does not initially save any cookies on your device. However, when the relevant pages are called up, the IP address and the other data mentioned in section 4 are transmitted and thus, in particular, information is provided as to which of our Internet pages you have visited. However, this information cannot be attributed to you unless you have logged in to YouTube or another Google service (e.g. Google+) before accessing the page or are permanently logged in.

As soon as you start the playback of an embedded video by clicking on it, YouTube only saves cookies on your device through the extended data protection mode, which do not contain any personally identifiable data, unless you are currently logged in to a Google service. These cookies can be prevented by appropriate browser settings and extensions.
