Yanfeng Slovakia Automotive Interior Systems s. r. o. (registered in Slovak Republic, Twin City C, Mlynské Nivy 14, 82109 Bratislava) and its affiliated companies (collectively YFAI, we, us or our) care about your privacy and are committed to processing your personal information in accordance with fair information practices and applicable data privacy laws.
This Privacy Notice explains how we handle individuals’ personal information in the different locations where we operate. Personal information is all information relating to an identified or identifiable individual.
We collect personal information in a variety of ways through our normal business activities, in both online and offline contexts. This includes, for example, when you apply for a job with us, enter into agreements or communicate with us, or visit and use our website. We may also receive personal information from third parties, including public databases, social media platforms, or third party partners such as analytics or marketing providers.
Personal information that we collect from individuals may include:
We use personal information in the context of our employment and business activities, which includes the following purposes:
These processing operations are based on one of the following legal bases, as applicable:
You may provide certain information voluntarily on our website for a determined purpose, e.g. any information entered when expressing an interest in being contacted, specifically as candidate. Such data may include personal contact information, such as name, company name, address, phone number, email address, job position, or demographic information (for example, zip code, employing industry, or country) and any other information provided by you. YFAI uses that data collected to contact the person who submitted such information.
When you visit our websites, we and/or our webspace provider collect certain information in the form of server log files and by other automated means, using technologies such as cookies, pixel tags, browser analysis tools and server logs. In many cases, the information we collect using cookies and other tools is used in a non-identifiable way, without any reference to personal information.
Data we collect via cookies is saved by us using the same strict security measures taken with all other information. We only use this data to the extent defined in this Privacy Notice.
Our server logs also collect information about how users utilize the websites (usage data). This data may include a user's domain name, language, type of browser and operating system, Internet service provider, Internet protocol (IP) address, the site or reference directing the user to the website, the website you were visiting before you came to our website and the website you visit after you leave our site, and the amount of time spent on the website. We may monitor and utilize usage data to measure the website's performance and activity, improve the website's design and functionality or for security purposes. Our employees and the service providers engaged by YFAI are obliged to maintain confidentiality and to comply with the provisions of applicable data protection rules.
Where required by applicable law, you will be asked to consent to certain cookies and similar technologies before we use or install them on your computer or other device.
This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program provided by Google.
Each Google AdWords advertiser has a different cookie. Thus, cookies cannot be tracked using the website of an AdWords advertiser. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for the AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Candidates are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, advertisers do not obtain any information that can be used to personally identify users. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can opt-out of this by easily disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie by changing your browser settings. In doing so, you will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
Our website measures conversions using visitor action pixels from Facebook.
These allow the behavior of site visitors to be tracked after they click on a Facebook ad to reach the provider’s website. This allows an analysis of the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements for statistical and market research purposes and their future optimization.
You can also deactivate the custom audiences remarketing feature in the Ads Settings section at https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen. You will first need to log into Facebook.
Some browsers have incorporated features that can send a signal to websites you visit to notify those sites that you elect not to be tracked (a “Do Not Track” signal). We currently do not respond to web browser Do Not Track signals because a uniform technological standard has not yet been developed. To learn more about browser tracking signals and Do Not Track please visit http://www.allaboutdnt.org/.
Our websites are not directed at children and we do not use our websites to knowingly solicit personal information from or market to children. If we learn that a child has provided personal information through one of our websites, we will remove that information from our systems.
We apply appropriate technical, physical and organizational measures that are reasonably designed to protect personal information against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, in particular where personal information is transferred over a network, and against all other unlawful forms of processing. Access to personal information is restricted to authorized recipients on a need-to-know basis. We maintain a comprehensive information security program that is proportionate to the risks associated with the processing. The program is continuously adapted to mitigate operational risks and to ensure the protection of personal information taking into account industry-accepted practices. We will also use enhanced security measures when processing any sensitive personal information.
We may use third parties to provide or perform services and functions on our behalf. We may make personal information concerning individuals available to these third parties, as necessary, to perform these services and functions. Any access to that personal information will be limited to the purpose for which the information was provided.
We may also make personal information concerning individuals available to public or judicial authorities, law enforcement personnel and agencies as required by law, including to agencies and courts in China and the United States and other countries where we operate. Where permitted by law, we may also disclose such information to third parties (including legal counsel) when necessary for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims or to otherwise enforce our rights, protect our property or the rights, property or safety of others, or as needed to support external audit, compliance and corporate governance functions.
Personal information may be transferred to a party acquiring all or part of the equity or assets of YFAI or its business operation in the event of a sale, merger, liquidation, dissolution, or sale or transfer of the substantial assets of YFAI or any of its business operations. We may also transfer and share such information to our affiliates within the YFAI group, in compliance with applicable law.
The third parties, subsidiaries and affiliates to whom your personal information can be disclosed may be located throughout the world; therefore information may be sent to countries having different privacy protection standards than your country of residence.
If you are a resident of the European Economic Area (“EEA”), we may transfer your personal information to countries that have not been found by the European Commission to provide adequate protection. In such cases, we take measures necessary to ensure that your personal information receives an adequate level of protection.
Access, Correction and Transmission. You may reasonably access the personal information pertaining to you. You also have the right to request to correct incomplete, inaccurate or outdated personal information. To the extent required by applicable law, you may request the transmission of the personal information you have provided to us to you or another company.
Objection. We respect your right to object to any uses or disclosures of your personal information that are not (i) required by law, (ii) necessary for the fulfillment of a contractual obligation, or (iii) required to meet a legitimate need of YFAI (such as general administration disclosures for auditing and reporting purposes or internal investigations, management of network and information systems security, and protection of YFAI’s assets). If you do object, we will work with you to find a reasonable accommodation. You may also withdraw your consent at any time in relation to our processing of personal information based on your consent.
Deletion. You may also request the deletion of your personal information, as permitted under applicable law. This applies, for instance, where your information is outdated or the processing is not necessary or is unlawful; where you withdraw your consent to our processing based on such consent; or where we determine we should accommodate an objection you have raised to our processing. In some situations, we may need to retain your personal information pursuant to our legal obligations or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
Restriction of processing. You may request that we restrict processing of your personal information while we are processing your request or complaint pertaining to (i) the accuracy of your personal information, (ii) the lawfulness of the processing of your personal information, or (iii) our legitimate interests to process this information. You may also request that we restrict processing of your personal information if you wish to use the personal information for litigation purposes.
You may exercise these rights free of charge. However, YFAI may charge a reasonable fee or refuse to act on a request if it is manifestly unfounded or excessive, in particular because of its repetitive character. In some situations, YFAI may refuse to act or may impose limitations on your rights if, for instance, your request is likely to adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others, prejudice the execution or enforcement of the law, interfere with pending or future litigation, or infringe applicable law. In all cases, you have a right to file a complaint with a Data Protection Authority.
By providing personal information to us, you understand and agree to the collection, processing, international transfer and use of such information as set forth in this Privacy Notice. Where required by applicable law, we will ask your explicit consent.
Also, in case you have specific reasons that relate to your particular situation, you may object to YFAI’s processing of your personal information on the basis of our legitimate interests. In such cases we will investigate your request and notify you as to how we intend to resolve it. You may withdraw any consent previously granted for a specific purpose, free of charge by clicking on relevant website links, following the directions contained in an email or by contacting our Privacy Office.
Please note that if you choose to withdraw your consent, you may not be able to participate in or benefit from the programs, services and initiatives for which you provided consent.
We will retain your personal information as long as necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected, usually for the duration of any contractual relationship and for any period thereafter as legally required or permitted by applicable law. Our retention policies reflect applicable local statute of limitation periods and legal requirements.
To identify the YFAI entity responsible for the processing of your personal information, you can ask your YFAI business contact, consult the list of our locations on YFAI public websites or contact our Privacy Office.
If you would like to communicate with us regarding privacy issues or have questions, comments or complaints, or for the exercise of your rights, please contact our Privacy Office at email@example.com or Yanfeng Europe Automotive Interior Systems Management Limited & Co. KG, Jagenbergstr. 1, 41468 Neuss, Germany.
