Data Protection

We appreciate your interest in Protecting your privacy is very important to us. In the following we provide detailed information about the handling of your personal data.
Automatic collection of data
When you access our website your Internet browser automatically transmits data to our web server for technical reasons. Such data include, amongst others, the date and time of your visit, the site from which you access our website, the name of the requested file, the browser type and version, the operating system and your IP address. The data will be temporarily stored for IT security reasons. However, we cannot attribute the automatically collected data to a particular person and therefore we cannot identify him or her.

Data collection and use in other cases
You can visit our website without providing any personal information. Personal data will only be collected, stored and used if you voluntarily provide details e.g. when registering as a user, when submitting an online application or in a general inquiry. We will use the data you provided only for the purpose for which you have transmitted the data to us, unless you have given your separate consent to the use for other purposes. After having achieved this purpose, the personal data will be erased, unless record retention periods have to be observed under tax and commercial law.

Data collection by Matomo
Our website uses Matomo. This is a so-called web analysis service. Matomo uses so-called “cookies”. Cookies are text files which are stored on your computer and which allow us to analyse the use of the website. For this purpose, the information generated by the cookie about your visit (including your shortened IP address) is transmitted to our server and is stored for analysis purposes to optimize our website. In this process, your IP address is immediately anonymized, so that you remain an anonymous user for us. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website will not be disclosed to third parties. You may prevent the use of cookies by choosing the corresponding settings of your browser software. However, certain functions of this website may no longer work or not work correctly without cookies.
If you do not agree to the storage and use of these data gathered from your visit you may at any time oppose to their storage and use by clicking the link below. In this case, a so-called opt-out cookie is stored on your browser, so that Matomo does not collect any session data. Please note: If you delete your cookies the opt-out cookie will also be deleted and might have to be reactivated by you.

Your visit to the website is currently recorded by Matomo web analytics.

Online applications
Our online services comprise a job market and a feature to apply online for vacancies or to submit unsolicited applications for a job at our company. To assess your application we require particulars about your person and your career as well as other documents such as photos and certificates. Your data and documents are collected, stored and processed exclusively for processing and assessing your application. They can only be viewed by the HR department as well as the HR officer of the department advertising the job vacancy. You can view and/or edit your personal data stored and/or may oppose to their further processing by us. Even if we cannot offer you a job the companies of the Mitsubishi Paper Group are interested in retaining your data and documents, so that they can take them into consideration in future recruitments. This also applies to an unsolicited application if we are currently not able to offer you an appropriate position. If you desire your documents to be retained beyond the specific application procedure, please give your consent by clicking the respective declaration before sending your application. If not, your data and documents will be erased or archived in a pseudonymized form for statistical purposes after the rejection of your application. You can at any time send us an e-mail under declaring that you no longer want us to retain your documents. In that case your data and documents will also be erased or archived in a pseudonymized form after three months. 

Data security
We would like to inform you that data transferred on the Internet (e.g. in e-mail communication) may be vulnerable. A complete protection of data against unauthorized access by third parties is not possible.

Right to information
Pursuant to the Bundesdatenschutzgesetz [German Data Protection Act] you are entitled to claim free information about your personal data stored as well as, if applicable, correction, blockage or erasure of these data.
