b) General information on data processing

When using this website, personal data may be processed. Under data protection law, the term “personal data” refers to all the information relating to a specific or identifiable person. IP addresses can also be considered personal data, as a specific IP address is assigned to each electronic device when it is connected to the Internet by an Internet provider so that the device may send and receive data. When you use our company website, we collect information that you yourself provide. In addition, certain information about your use of the website is automatically collected during your visit.

We process personal data in compliance with relevant data protection regulations, in particular the GDPR and the BDSG. Data will only be processed by us on the basis of legal permission. When using this website, we only process personal data given with your consent (GDPR Article 6 [1][1a]), to fulfil a contract to which you are a party or upon your request to carry out pre-contractual measures (GDPR Article 6 [1][1c]), to fulfil a legal obligation (GDPR Article 6 [1][1c]) or if the processing is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of either our company or a third party – unless your interests, fundamental rights or freedoms (which require the protection of personal data), prevail (GDPR Article 6 [1][1f]). If you apply for work in our company, we also process your personal data so that we may consider establishing an employment relationship with you (BDSG §26 [1][1]).

c)  Duration of storage

Unless otherwise stated in the following information, we store personal data only as long as necessary to achieve the purposes of processing or to fulfil our contractual or statutory obligations. Such statutory retention obligations may arise in particular from commercial or tax regulations.

d) Technical service providers

Unless otherwise stated in the following information, personal data is processed on the servers of technical service providers commissioned by us for this purpose. These service providers process the data only after express instructions are given and are contractually obliged to guarantee adequate technical and organizational measures for data protection.

2. Processing server logs

When using our website solely for informational purposes, general information that your browser transmits to our server will initially be stored automatically (i.e. not via registration). By default, this information includes: browser type/version, operating system used, accessed page, the previously visited page (referrer URL), IP address, date and time of the server request and HTTP status code.

There is no permanent log on our web server. However, IP addresses are stored on the firewall for 60 days. Processing is carried out to protect our company’s legitimate interests and on the legal basis stated in Article 6 (1)(1f) of the GDPR. This processing serves the technical administration and security of the website.

3. Online contact form and inquiries

Our website features a contact form which you can use to send us messages. When you do, the transfer of your data is encrypted. All of the data fields which are marked as mandatory are required in order to process your contact request. If you do not provide us with this data, we will not be able to process your message. The provision of any further data here is entirely voluntary. Alternatively, you can opt to send us messages via email using the email address given. In this case, we process only the data needed in order to respond to your inquiry.
The legal basis for this is Article 6 (1)(1b) of the GDPR.

4. Applying for jobs online

You have the option of applying for employment via our website on the Jobs page. For this purpose, we need to collect personal data such as your name, address, telephone number and email address in addition to your application documents.

This personal application data will only be collected, stored, processed and used for purposes in connection with your interest in a current or future position of employment with us and in order to process your application. Your online application will only be processed and viewed by the relevant recruiting officers at our company. All employees entrusted with these data processing duties are obliged to maintain the confidentiality of your data.

If we are unable to offer you employment, we will keep the information you provide for up to six months after the application process has been completed in order to answer any questions relating to your application and its refusal. This does not apply if legal provisions prevent deletion, if further storage is necessary for the purpose of providing evidence or if you have expressly agreed to longer storage.

The legal basis for data collection in this respect is BDSG §26 (1)(1). If we keep your application data for a period of six months and you have expressly consented to this, we would like to point out that this consent can be freely revoked at any time in accordance with GDPR Article 7 (3). However, this does not affect the legality of any data processing which occurs prior to such revocation and which is based on previous consent.

We use the Google Analytics service from Google LLC (or “Google”, located at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) to evaluate visits to our website.

Pseudonymous user profiles can be created using the processed data.

We use Google Analytics only with IP anonymization enabled. This means that Google will abbreviate the IP address of users within member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there.

The IP address transmitted by a user’s browser will not be merged with other Google data. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting the settings in their browser software accordingly.

The legal basis for data processing in connection with the Google Analytics service is GDPR Article 6 (1)(1a). For this purpose, we use a cookie layer that only activates Google Analytics’ tracking function and employs the necessary cookies with the user’s consent.

You may reject the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. You can also prevent the information generated by cookies from being collected by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at:  http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
