Data protection policy
Thank you for your interest in our company. Data protection is of the utmost importance to the board of PORR AG. PORR AG's websites may for the main part be used without submitting personal data. If a data subject wishes to avail themselves of specific services provided by our company via our website, this may necessitate the processing of personal data. If this is necessary, we will obtain the data subject's consent.
Personal data will always be processed subject to the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation and in compliance with national data protection legislation. This data protection policy is designed to inform our users about the contents and purposes of the personal data that we collect and process. Furthermore, this data protection policy informs data subjects about the rights they are entitled to.
As the website operator, PORR AG has implemented an extensive number of technical and organisational measures in order to ensure that the data processed in connection with this website is reliably protected. However, there is always a possibility that data transmissions between your device and our server may feature security gaps, especially if the device you are using to communicate with our server can be accessed by third parties. If you have any concerns regarding security, you can use an alternative method, e.g. the telephone or one of our branch offices, to submit your information.
1. Definition of terms
PORR AG's data protection policy is based on the provisions and definitions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection policy is designed to be easily readable and comprehensible for our visitors, clients and business partners. In order to ensure this, we would like to define the terms used beforehand:
1) Personal data
Personal data comprises all information relating to an identifiable natural person.
2) Data subject
A data subject is any identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by a controller.
The controller is the company that collects the data subject's personal data and determines the purposes and means of processing.
The processor is a natural person or company involved by the controller in the processing of personal data.
The recipient is a natural or legal person, or public authority, to whom the personal data are disclosed.
6) Third party
A third party is a natural or legal person or public authority who processes personal data on behalf of the controller or processor.
Processing is any operation performed in connection with personal data. This ranges from the collection and storage to the restriction or erasure of personal data.
8) Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing means limiting the use of personal data.
Consent means any statement issued by a person to indicate that he or she agrees to the processing of personal data concerning him or her.
A person issuing a revocation revokes the right of the controller to process his or her data on the basis of consent.
Pseudonymisation separates the data from the identifiable person. This connection cannot be re-established without the use of additional, specially safeguarded information. The pseudonymisation process also corresponds to what is known as data minimisation.
Profiling is any form of automated evaluation of personal data.
2. Name and address of the controller
For the purposes of the GDPR, the controller is:
Tel: +43 50 626-0
3. Collection of data
Every time the PORR AG website is accessed, the website collects a variety of data and information which is then stored in the server's logfiles. The information collected in this manner includes, among other things:
1) Browser types and versions
2) Your computer's operating system
3) The website that linked you to us
4) Pages accessed on our web server
5) The date and time of your visit
6) Your IP address
7) Your Internet service provider
When using this anonymously collected information, PORR AG will not attempt to use it to identify the data subject. This data is, however, necessary in order to deliver the content of our website correctly, optimise the display, and provide the authorities with the necessary information in the event of a hacking attack. The data is therefore processed by PORR AG both statistically and as a technical measure to ensure data protection and information security of this processing and your data.
4. Registering on our website
You have the option of registering on our website. The data entered by the data subject is processed solely for the controller's internal use and purposes.
By registering on our website, the IP address assigned by your Internet service provider, the date, and the time of registration will be stored. This data will, in general, not be disclosed to third parties insofar as no legal disclosure obligations exist or disclosure is not required for the purposes of prosecution.
Registration allows us to offer you content and services which may only be offered to registered users. As a registered user, you may change your submitted data at any time or have it erased from our database in its entirety.
Cookies contain a cookie ID, which is an unambiguous identifier. They allow PORR AG to distinguish the data subject's browser from other Internet browsers, display content in an individualised manner and cater to the data subject's wishes and results.
The shopping basket cookie in the online shop is one example of this. The online shop uses a cookie to remember the items a customer has placed in the virtual shopping basket.
If you wish to prevent cookies from being set, you can define this in the security settings of your Internet browser, thereby permanently preventing the storage of cookies. Any cookies that are already on your computer can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or directly from within the data system. Please be aware that deactivating cookies may result in limiting the set of functions provided by the website.
6. Subscribing to our newsletter
Users have the option of subscribing to our newsletter via our website. We use our newsletter to keep our customers and business partners informed about our offers at regular intervals. After you have registered, a confirmation email will be sent to the email address you have submitted, using the double opt-in method. This confirmation email serves to ensure that you, as the owner of the email address, have actually authorised delivery of the newsletter.
If you subscribe to the newsletter via our website, your email address, the IP address assigned by your Internet service provider, and the date and time of registration will be stored. This data will, in general, not be disclosed to third parties insofar as no legal disclosure obligations exist or disclosure is not required for the purposes of prosecution.

8. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data
PORR AG shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or insofar as this is granted by legal provisions.

10. Data protection relating to applications and during the application process
The controller collects and processes applicants' personal data for the purposes of implementing the application process. This processing may also be undertaken by electronic means. This applies in particular, in cases where the applicant submits their respective application documents to the controller by electronic means, for example, via email or via the careers portal porr-group.com/en/karriere. If PORR AG enters into a service contract with an applicant, the submitted data will be stored for the purposes of implementing the employment relationship. If PORR AG does not enter into a service contract with the applicant, the applicant’s application documents will be automatically deleted, at the latest, six months after he or she is notified of this decision, insofar as this is not precluded by other legitimate interests of PORR AG or the applicant's consent to further processing. If your application is not targeted towards a specific role listed in the careers portal (speculative application), your data may be forwarded on to a company within the PORR Group, depending on your qualifications, to satisfy mutual, legitimate interests.
