We invite you to use our online garden planner. In order to save your planned garden across all your devices you will need to register. The registration form will allow us to personalize how we address you, it also details the scope of the data we collect for the assignment of the garden. If you choose to share the garden you have created with third parties, this will be done anonymously, meaning that the garden you share cannot be used to identify you personally.

(S) Competitions
Summary – Competitions
If you take part in a competition or similar campaign, we may Process your Personal Data to administer such campaign.

From time to time, you have the opportunity to take part in competitions or similar promotional campaigns, for example via our websites. As part of these campaigns, it may be necessary to collect and store your Personal Data, as further specified in the campaign entry form, to administer the competition. Data that we do not necessarily need for the conduct of the competition but which, for example, allows us to notify you faster in the event that you may win, are expressly marked as voluntary information. Any Personal Data that you provide to us in the context of such campaigns will be used exclusively for the handling of the campaign (in the case of a competition, for example, to determine the winner(s), notify the winner(s) and send the winner(s) their prize). When the campaign is completed, data of the participants who did not win will be deleted immediately and the data of the winner(s), will be deleted upon expiry of the statutory retention period.

(T) Online Application Process
Summary – Online Application Process
We Process Personal Data in the context of our online application process.

We provide an online job application process. The data you submit, including any files you upload, are transferred via a secure connection. Your electronic application data will be routed to the relevant personnel department, who will send it only to the relevant department for the job in question and/or to the people who are authorised to process the application. All parties will treat your application documents with the utmost care and keep the content strictly confidential.

Following completion of the candidate selection process, we will retain your application documents for six months, after which time we will delete them and/or destroy any copies, unless we have entered into an employment contract with you. If we wish to keep your application documents on file in our applicant pool, we will contact you about this. During this communication, we will give you the opportunity to actively consent to the continued storage of your documents. Regardless of whether or not you currently have an open application, your applicant account and the associated data will continue to be stored unless you deactivate them; this gives you the opportunity to apply for other jobs with us.

Please note that applications submitted to us by email are transferred to us in an unencrypted format. We therefore recommend that you use the online application portal where possible.

(U) Minors

Summary – Minors
Our Sites are not aimed at minors and we do not knowingly collect Personal Data from minors

Our Sites are not aimed at minors and we do not knowingly collect Personal Data from minors.

(V) Social Media and Other Third Party Platforms
Summary – Social Media and other Third Party Platforms
We Process personal in the context of Fan Pages on social media and other third party platforms and for purposes of delivering targeted advertising campaigns.
Social Media Buttons

We use social media buttons for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, LinkedIn and Xing on our Websites. The social media buttons are not integrated as plugins via iFrame, but only provide a link to our company representation page (“Fan Page”) on the respective social media platform. No Personal Data is transmitted to such social media provider upon clicking on a social media button

Fan Pages on Social Media Platforms

We maintain Fan Pages on social media and other third party platforms to market and promote our products and services. When we provide a Fan Page on a social media or other third party platform, we are a joint controller with the provider of the platform. We operate Fan Pages in joint controllership with Facebook and Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn and Xing (incl. Kununu). We recommend that you review each such company’s privacy notice for further information about the processing they carry out and the contact details for such companies. We will Process Personal Data of both registered and non-registered visitors of our Fan Pages.

Registered Visitors

We Process data relating to our Sites (such as user identification), Personal details and Contact details (e.g. shared profile data). We also Process Personal Data generated through sharing of content, message exchange and communication. We may also Process special categories of Personal Data, if the user has shared such Personal Data

Registered and Non-Registered Visitors:

We Process pseudonymized data such as statistics and insights on visitors’ interaction with the content on our Fan Page (page activities, page views, like information, reach, general demographic, location and interest-related information on age, gender, country, city, language), evaluations of the success of our advertisements, and other analyses. We cannot merge pseudonymized data with the corresponding attribution features (e.g. name details) and hence it is not possible for us to identify individual visitors who remain anonymous

We are not responsible for the user’s experience within the Fan Pages, e.g. with regard to the use of interactive functions such as sharing and rating.
A Fan Page or other corporate presence on third party platforms is just one of several options for contacting us or receiving information from us. As an alternative, the information offered via our Fan Pages and corporate presences can also be accessed on our websites.

Targeting

As further explained in our Cookie Policies (see Section (P) above), we may use cookies on our sites to allow Facebook, if you have a Facebook account, to serve you Husqvarna Group ads that are relevant to your interests. To do so, we direct Facebook, based on the data collected by the Facebook pixel, to create a group of Facebook users that will be the audience of our ad campaigns (so called custom audiences). For the creation of custom audiences, we and Facebook Ireland are acting as joint controllers and have entered into Facebook’s Controller Addendum to determine the parties’ respective responsibilities. We are responsible to provide the information set out herein, and Facebook Ireland is responsible for enabling data subjects’ rights under Articles 15-20 GDPR with regard to personal data stored by Facebook Ireland after the joint processing. You can find the relevant contact details and further information on how Facebook Ireland processes personal data, including legal basis and ways to exercise your rights against Facebook Ireland in Facebook Ireland’s Data Policy at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy.
Facebook may also use the custom audience data to create lookalike audiences, which are Facebook users with similar interests or profiles as our custom audiences, for the purpose of delivering our ads to these audiences. For any such processing, Facebook is the data controller and its privacy notice will apply to this processing. You can view your Facebook ad settings and update your preferences with Facebook at any time.
