Withdrawal of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke a previously given consent at any time. An informal notification by email is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to object to data collection in special cases and to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)
If your personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is associated with such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for direct marketing purposes (objection pursuant to Art. 21(2) GDPR).
Right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority
In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the member state of their habitual residence, place of work, or the place of the alleged infringement. This right to lodge a complaint is without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right to data portability
You have the right to receive, in a commonly used machine-readable format, the data that we process automatically based on your consent or in fulfillment of a contract, either for yourself or for a third party. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done to the extent that it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the change in the address line of the browser from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
When SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blocking, deletion, and correction
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to obtain free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient, and the purpose of data processing, as well as a right to correct, block, or delete this data. For this purpose, as well as for further questions regarding personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address provided in the imprint.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. For this purpose, you can contact us at any time at the address provided in the imprint. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the examination, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data was/is unlawful, but you do not want it to be deleted, you can request the restriction of the processing instead.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it for the exercise, defense, or assertion of legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
- If you have filed an objection pursuant to Art. 21(1) GDPR, a balance must be struck between your interests and ours. As long as it has not been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, except for storage, this data may only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise, or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.
Objection to promotional emails
The use of contact data published within the framework of the imprint obligation for sending unsolicited advertising and information materials is hereby objected to. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as spam emails.
3. Data collection on our website
The websites partly use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used to make our offer more user-friendly, effective, and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies.” They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser on your next visit.
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in server log files that your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
- IP address
These data will not be combined with other data sources.
The collection of these data is based on Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimization of its website, for which the server log files must be recorded.
If you submit inquiries to us via the contact form, your information from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We will not share this data without your consent.
The processing of the data entered into the contact form is based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) of the GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal message by email to us is sufficient for this purpose. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage, or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g., after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – especially retention periods – remain unaffected.
Inquiry by email, telephone, or fax
If you contact us by email, telephone, or fax, your inquiry, including all resulting personal data (name, inquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of handling your request. We will not share this data without your consent.
The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, provided that your request is related to the fulfillment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR) and/or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) as we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of the inquiries directed to us.
The data you send to us through contact inquiries will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent for storage, or the purpose for data storage no longer exists (e.g., after completing the processing of your matter). Mandatory legal provisions – especially retention periods – remain unaffected.
Processing of Data (Customer and Contract Data)
We collect, process, and use personal data only to the extent necessary for establishing, structuring the content of, or modifying the legal relationship (inventory data). This is done based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the performance of a contract or for pre-contractual measures. We only collect, process, and use personal data about the use of our website (usage data) to the extent necessary to enable or bill the user for the use of the service.
The customer data collected will be deleted after the completion of the order or the termination of the business relationship. Statutory retention periods remain unaffected.
4. Analysis Tools and Advertising
Matomo (formerly Piwik)
This website uses the open-source web analysis service Matomo. Matomo uses so-called “cookies.” These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is stored on our server. The IP address is anonymized before storage.
Matomo cookies remain on your end device until you delete them.
The storage of Matomo cookies and the use of this analysis tool are based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the anonymized analysis of user behavior in order to optimize both its website and its advertising.
The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website will not be disclosed to third parties. You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your browser software accordingly; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use all the features of this website to their full extent.
If you do not agree to the storage and use of your data, you can deactivate the storage and use here. In this case, an opt-out cookie will be stored in your browser, which prevents Matomo from storing usage data. If you delete your cookies, this will also delete the Matomo opt-out cookie. The opt-out must be reactivated when you revisit our site.
5. Plugins and Tools
YouTube with enhanced privacy mode
Our website uses plugins from the YouTube website. The site is operated by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
We use YouTube in enhanced privacy mode. According to YouTube, this mode ensures that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. However, the extended privacy mode does not necessarily exclude the transfer of data to YouTube partners. For example, YouTube establishes a connection to the Google DoubleClick network regardless of whether you are watching a video.
When you start a YouTube video on our website, a connection to YouTube’s servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you allow YouTube to associate your browsing behavior directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
In addition, YouTube may store various cookies on your device after you start a video. These cookies enable YouTube to obtain information about visitors to our website. This information is used, among other things, to capture video statistics, improve user-friendliness, and prevent fraud. The cookies remain on your device until you delete them.
Starting a YouTube video may trigger further data processing operations over which we have no control.
The use of YouTube is in the interest of presenting our online content in an appealing manner. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR.
Our website uses plugins from the video portal Vimeo. The provider is Vimeo Inc., 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA.
When you visit one of our pages that contains a Vimeo plugin, a connection to Vimeo’s servers is established. This informs the Vimeo server which of our pages you have visited. Vimeo also obtains your IP address. This applies whether you are logged in to Vimeo or do not have an account with Vimeo. The information collected by Vimeo is transferred to the Vimeo server in the United States.
If you are logged in to your Vimeo account, you allow Vimeo to associate your browsing behavior directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your Vimeo account.
The use of Vimeo is in the interest of presenting our online content in an appealing manner. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR.
Google Web Fonts
This page uses web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. The Google Fonts are installed locally. There is no connection to Google servers.
Google Maps (with consent)
This page uses the Google Maps service via an API. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
To ensure data protection on our website, Google Maps is deactivated when you first visit our website. A direct connection to Google’s servers is only established when you activate Google Maps yourself (consent according to Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR). This prevents your data from being transferred to Google when you first enter the page.
After activation, Google Maps will store your IP address. It is usually transferred to and stored on a Google server in the United States. The provider of this page has no influence on this data transfer after Google Maps has been activated.
6. Own Services
We offer you the opportunity to apply to us (e.g., via email, post, or 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 comply with applicable data protection laws and all other legal provisions, and your data will be treated strictly confidentially.
Scope and purpose of data collection
If you submit an application to us, we will process the personal data associated with it (e.g., contact and communication data, application documents, notes from job interviews, etc.) to the extent necessary for making a decision on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is § 26 BDSG-new according to German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Article 6(1)(b) GDPR (general initiation of a contract), and – if you have given consent – Article 6(1)(a) GDPR. The consent can be revoked at any time. Your personal data will only be disclosed within our company to individuals involved in the processing of your application.
If the application is successful, the data you have submitted will be stored for the purpose of carrying out the employment relationship in our data processing systems based on § 26 BDSG-new and Article 6(1)(b) GDPR.
Retention period of the data
If we are unable to offer you a position, you reject a job offer, withdraw your application, revoke your consent for data processing, or request us to delete the data, the data you have transmitted, including any remaining physical application documents, will be stored or retained for a maximum of 6 months after the completion of the application process (retention period) to enable us to trace the details of the application process in case of discrepancies (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR).
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THIS STORAGE IF YOU HAVE LEGITIMATE INTERESTS THAT OVERRIDE OUR INTERESTS.
After the retention period has expired, the data will be deleted, unless there is a legal obligation to retain the data or another legal reason for further storage. If it is evident that the storage of your data will be necessary after the expiry of the retention period (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), deletion will only take place when the data has become irrelevant. Other statutory retention obligations remain unaffected.
