04. Data Collection on this Website

Cookies

Our Internet pages do not use any "cookies" except for a technically necessary session cookie for the contact form, which is emptied after the contact form is submitted and deleted when the browser is closed. It does not contain any personal data and cannot be used for tracking.

Cookies are small text files and do not cause any damage to your terminal device. They are stored either temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies) on your end device. Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them yourself or until they are automatically deleted by your web browser.
Cookies have various functions. Many cookies are technically necessary, as certain website functions would not work without them (in this case, the contact form).

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for specific cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.
Insofar as cookies are used by third-party companies or for analysis purposes, we will inform you separately about this within the framework of this data protection declaration and, if necessary, request your consent.

Server Logfiles

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server logfiles, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Hostname of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address
This data is not merged with other data sources.
The collection of these data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimization of his website - for this purpose the server logfiles must be recorded.

Contact form

If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact data you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and for the purpose of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.
The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your inquiry is related to the fulfillment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the inquiries addressed to us (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR), provided that this inquiry was made.
The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to its storage or the purpose for which it was stored ceases to apply (e.g. after your inquiry has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

Inquiry by E-mail, Telephone or Fax

If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your inquiry including all personal data (name, inquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We will not pass on this data without your consent.
The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your inquiry is related to the fulfillment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the inquiries addressed to us (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR), provided that this inquiry was made.
The data sent to us by you via contact inquiries will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to its storage or the purpose for which it was stored no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular legal retention periods - remain unaffected.

05. Social Media

Presence in Social Networks (social media)

Purposes of Processing
We are present on social media platforms to get in contact with the users of these platforms and to increase our reach (awareness). Communication with the users is effected by using the functions available on the platforms. In order to measure the success of our activities, we use evaluations offered by the respective manufacturer or tracking functions (e.g. for interest/behavioral profiling), cookies and remarketing functions. In order to promote the exchange of opinions or to win new customers, we support groups.

Notes on data processing by social networks
The operators of social networks are usually not based within the European Union. Therefore, personal data is also processed outside the European Union (e.g. USA). This increases the risk that user data is not processed in accordance with the data protection requirements of the European Union or that user rights cannot be exercised or are difficult to exercise.
Social networks process extensive user data to create personal user profiles. These user profiles are used in particular for advertising purposes or market research data. This may take the form of advertisements which are displayed to users inside or outside the social networks and which correspond to the interests of the user. In addition, data about the devices, browser, resolution, etc. employed when using the platforms are usually assigned to the usage profile. For these purposes, cookies are stored on the users' computers. For a detailed presentation of the respective forms of processing and the possibilities of objection (opt-out), we refer to the data protection declarations and information provided by the operators of the respective networks.
You can best assert your rights (e.g. information or deletion) with the respective provider. Only the operators of the social platforms have access to your data and can fulfill your requests for data subject rights.

Data Types Processed
  • Personal identification data (e.g. names, addresses, e-mail address, telephone number)
  • Electronic identification data (e.g. websites visited, interest in content, access times, device information, IP addresses)
Legal Basis
  • Legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f. GDPR).

12 Other Services

Handling of Applicant Data

We offer you the opportunity to apply for a job with us (e.g. by e-mail, by post or via online application form). In the following we will inform you about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected during the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing and use of your data will be in accordance with the applicable data protection laws and all other legal requirements and that your data will be treated in strict confidence.

Scope and Purpose of Data Collection
If you send us an application, we will process your associated personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes taken during job interviews, etc.) to the extent that this is necessary to make a decision on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is § 26 BDSG-neu under German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR (general contract initiation) and - if you have given your consent - Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. Consent can be revoked at any time. Within our company, your personal data will only be passed on to persons involved in the processing of your application.
If the application is successful, the data submitted by you will be stored in our data processing systems on the basis of § 26 BDSG-neu and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR for the purpose of carrying out the employment relationship.

Storage Duration of the Data
If we are unable to offer you a job, if you reject a job offer or if we withdraw your application, we reserve the right to keep the data you have submitted with us for up to 6 months from the end of the application procedure (rejection or withdrawal of the application) on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 letter f GDPR). Afterwards, the data will be deleted and the physical application documents destroyed. The storage serves in particular as evidence in the event of a legal dispute. If it is evident that the data will be required after the 6-month period has expired (e.g. due to an imminent or pending legal dispute), the data will only be deleted when the purpose for further storage no longer applies.
A longer storage period can also take place if you have given your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR) or if legal storage obligations prevent the deletion.
