For current reasons, a risk assessment is carried out when contact is made with persons from outside the company, in order to protect our employees from infection with the COVID-19 pathogen. In the course of this, a questionnaire is used to determine whether contact persons have signs of illness, have been in a risk region or have had contact with an infected or quarantined person.
We use the collected data for the following purposes:
- Risk analysis to determine whether visitors / customers / suppliers, who are in personal contact with us, belong to the "risk group COVID-19", e.g. due to a stay in a risk region or contact with infected persons / suspected cases, so that we can fulfill our duty of care towards our employees.
- Collection of contact details in order to be able to inform contact persons about a possible suspicious situation, if we become aware of a suspicious case involving an employee of our organization or another contact person; in this notification, the identity of the (affected) person will only be communicated if this is absolutely necessary to protect the informed person against health risks (e.g. contagion) or to limit the spread.
- Disclosure of the data to the health authority in case of suspicion (notifiable disease). In this case, if possible, the person is isolated in our organization and the health authority is informed. The isolated person has to wait for the medical officer and follow the instructions of the health authority.
- Art 9 para 2 lit b GDPR (labor law: in particular the duty of care towards our employees) in conjunction with Art 6 para 1 lit d (vital interests) and lit f (legitimate interests of our organization and third parties) GDPR (when collecting the data).
- Art 9 para 2 lit g GDPR, in particular the regulations of the Law on Epidemics on the obligation to report diseases that require reporting, and Art 9 para 2 lit i GDPR (public interest in the area of public health) - when data is transferred to health authorities.
The data will be stored until the end of the official measures in connection with COVID-19 and then deleted within 6 months. Data of suspected cases will be kept for a period of 5 years. In the event that claims are made against us, or we or our employees make claims, we will retain the data for the duration of any procedures.
