If you leave an anonymous evaluation of our company or our application process, we will at no time receive/process any personal data about you.
Apart from the processing of personal data described above, ams OSRAM has no influence on the processing of your personal data collected when you use the ams OSRAM Glassdoor account.

The official ams OSRAM XING/Kununu accounts are:
XING is a service which focuses on contributing to improving and simplifying its users’ professional life through a variety of different applications. The combination of these applications provides an optimal user experience and the largest possible scope of functions. With the boundaries between working and private life becoming more and more blurred in today’s world – and in view of the interactions between the two – XING not only focuses on the professional context, but also includes applications intended for private life. In particular, XING aims at opening up new opportunities for (mainly professional, but also private) users, facilitating the building of horizontal networks, democratizing information, promoting the sharing of information, and supporting life-long learning. To fulfill these purposes, XING also provides its users with information, offers, recommendations and services, on the basis of data collected. Furthermore, it promotes interaction – within and outside a user’s network. Applications made available by XING include the social network, for which a user can acquire a membership, an event platform, an employer evaluation platform, as well as a platform for the promotion of employee engagement. Certain XING applications are made available under other brand names or require the use of other XING websites (such as Kununu, HalloFreelancer).
4.1. Information provided by ams OSRAM on the processing of personal data
In order to be able to communicate with you via our ams OSRAM XING pages, we process the following personal data:
Kununu serves as an employer evaluation platform for us. Here you can evaluate our company anonymously. In this context, ams OSRAM does not collect any personal data, unless you disclose your personal data in your comment or evaluation.
Apart from the processing of personal data described above, ams OSRAM has no influence on the processing of personal data in the context of your use of ams OSRAM XING pages. Please note that you use our pages and your function under your own responsibility. This especially applies to the use of interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, liking).
4.2. Information provided by XING/Kununu on the processing of personal data
Data is mainly processed in order to meet contractual obligations towards users. Apart from this, XING/Kununu processes your data for the safeguarding of their legitimate interests while giving due consideration to your own interests (e.g. if we send you advertising newsletters). In certain cases, XING/Kununu is legally obliged to process data (e.g. for the disclosure of data to law enforcement authorities). In all other cases, we seek your separate consent to the processing of your data (e.g. when using tracking technologies for measuring and optimizing the effect of advertising, or within the scope of lotteries/prize draws). In order to fulfill its contractual obligations towards its users, XING/Kununu continuously adapts its products and services to its users’ needs. Personalization plays a major role here. Interest and use profiles are created in this context: In fact, XING/Kununu must understand your interests in order to be able to submit suitable recommendations – such as job posts, events, groups or contacts – or to introduce you to other users as a valuable business contact or potential future employee. To determine these interests, XING/Kununu uses the information which you disclose to it, along with implicit feedback – i.e. information which XING/Kununu obtains automatically when you use its service (via so-called “tracking”), and possibly also information which XING/Kununu obtains indirectly (e.g. via a user’s address book or a list upload). Furthermore, within the scope of contract performance, XING/Kununu sends you third-party advertising which suits your interests and needs in the best possible manner. For this purpose, it makes certain targeting criteria available to advertisers.

The ams OSRAM Career TikTok channel: amsosramcareer (@amsosram_career) | TikTok
The ams OSRAM Career TikTok channel is operated by ams OSRAM on the technical platform of TikTok Technology Limited, 10 Earlsfort Terrace, Dublin, D02 T380 (“TikTok”).
The following provides you with information on how data is processed by ams OSRAM on its TikTok channel (also the “Channel”), as well as the information published by TikTok in relation to its processing of personal data on the platform:
Personal data of TikTok users accessing the Channel, whether they are registered with the platform or not, is only processed by ams OSRAM in anonymised/aggregated form as provided by TikTok that does not allow identification of single individuals. This data processing is aimed at determining the success of the Channel and assessing information about Channel visitors (gender, age and location) to further improve its targeting.
ams OSRAM may be occasionally processing personal data of identifiable registered users, if it is necessary to respond to direct massages, comments or in any other way to interact with TikTok users visiting the Channel. This information is stored for as long as it is necessary for interaction with users and is deleted once interaction is over (in case of direct messages) or comments or likes are removed by a user. The processing of the data in question takes place exclusively within the platform, excludes processing of sensitive personal data and is based on the legitimate interest of ams OSRAM in accordance with Article 6 (1) point (f) GDPR. Users are entitled to object to such processing based on the grounds established in Article 21 GDPR.
ams OSRAM may also employ third parties (service providers) to maintain the Channel and improve its functioning. In this case, appropriate contractual arrangements are established between ams OSRAM and the service provider to guarantee security and integrity of the data processed, including, where necessary Data Processing Agreements under Article 28 GDRP.
In the event of data transfers outside of the European Union involving personal information as described above ams OSRAM will rely on the following instruments according to Article 46 GDPR to guarantee its appropriate protection:
– Adequacy decision of the European Commission;
– ams OSRAM Binding Corporate Rules for data transfer among ams OSRAM entities;
– EU Standard Contractual Clauses, as adopted by the European Commission on 04 June 2021.
Information on Joint Controllership with TikTok
ams OSRAM and TikTok are joint controllers in relation to the data processing taking place on the Channel within the meaning of Article 26 GDPR. ams OSRAM and TikTok entered into the Joint Controller Terms to determine the respective responsibilities for compliance with the obligations under the GDPR with regard to the Joint Processing (as specified in the Applicable Product Terms).
ams OSRAM is responsible for correct technical implementation and configuration of the Channel. ams OSRAM shall comply with its obligations under the GDPR in respect of the personal data breaches involving personal information as indicated above insofar as any personal data breach concerns ams OSRAM security obligations under the Joint Controller Terms.
TikTok is designated responsible entity for enabling data subjects’ rights under Articles 15-20 GDPR with regard to the personal stored or otherwise processed on the platform. This, however, does not prevent users from making respective requests directly to ams OSRAM.
Above and beyond the processing of personal data specified here, ams OSRAM does not have any influence on the processing of personal data in connection with your use of the Channel. We point out that you use the Channel and its functions under your own responsibility. That applies inter alia to use of interactive functions (e.g., comment, share, like).
TikTok collects a variety of personal data which is used for a variety of purposes. It also carries out web tracking regardless of whether or not you are logged in to or registered with the platform. We cannot influence the web tracking methods of the platform and we cannot disable them. We also cannot influence data processing by TikTok as well as data sharing between TikTok and its business partners and have no control over where your personal data is sent to and how it is utilised.

7. Onward transfer of personal data
For the purposes mentioned above, ams OSRAM can transmit personal data to other OSRAM group companies, provided that this is necessary for the fulfilment of these purposes.
ams OSRAM may transfer personal data to courts, supervisory authorities or law companies – to the extent legally permissible and required in order to comply with applicable law or to assert, exercise, or defend legal claims.
If required, ams OSRAM cooperates with service providers (so-called Processors), such as IT maintenance service providers. These providers only become active if instructed to do so by ams OSRAM and are contractually obliged to comply with all applicable data protection requirements. These data recipients can be located in a country outside the European Economic Area (“third countries”) in which the applicable law does not guarantee the same level of data protection as in your home country. Should this be the case, ams OSRAM takes measures in order to provide other suitable and appropriate guarantees for the protection of personal data, for example through our Binding Corporate Rules (“BCR”) on the protection of personal data or the EU Standard Clauses.
8. Storage of your data
If no data storage period has been indicated upon data collection, we will erase your personal data if (i) it is no longer required in order to comply with the original purpose of storage, and provided that (ii) no legal retention periods (e.g. answering of your messages/requests) and (ii) no legal retention periods (e.g. under trade or fiscal law) require a longer storage term for your data.
9. Your rights as a Data Subject
You have the following rights with regard to the processing of your personal data by ams OSRAM:
Right to object in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR:
If we process your data on the basis of legitimate interests (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR – “Lawfulness of the Processing”) or for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject (Art. 6 (1) (e) GDPR) – and in case that our legitimate interests are overridden by the Data Subject’s (contact partner’s) special situation which requires protection of personal data – you have the right to object to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 (1) GDPR.
In addition, you have the option of submitting a request to, or lodging a complaint with the competent data protection authority at any time.
The rights of the contact partner as a Data Subject only apply to the extent that they are compatible with the underlying business relationship with our business partner.
