General data processing
Scope and permission for the processing of personal data
We only collect and use our users’ personal data to the extent necessary to provide the functionality of our website and our content and services. The collection and use of our users’ personal data takes place regularly only with the consent of the user.
An exception applies in those cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for practical reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by statutory provisions. The legal basis for processing personal data with the prior consent of the data subject is Article 6 paragraph 1 (a) GDPR. Article 6 paragraph 1 (b) GDPR is the legal basis for the processing of personal data required for the fulfilment of a contract or in order to take steps prior to entering a contract. The legal basis for the processing of personal data to fulfil a legal obligation is Article 6 paragraph 1 (c) GDPR. In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person necessitate the processing of personal data, Article 6 paragraph 1 (d) GDPR serves as the legal basis. If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and these interests outweigh the interest of the data subject, taking into account the fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, Article 6 paragraph 1 (f) GDPR is the legal basis for the processing of the data.
Deleting data and storage duration
The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. In addition, data may be stored if we are required to do so by law in order to process the data. In this case, the data will be blocked or deleted when the legally prescribed storage period expires, unless further storage of the data is necessary for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.
Data processing through the use of our website
Description and scope of data processing and legal basis
Each time you access our website, our system (or its web space provider) automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the computer used. The following data will be collected:
Name of the website accessed, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification about successful access, browser type and version, user's operating system, referrer URL (page visited previously), IP address and requesting provider. The data is also stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user. The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Article 6 paragraph 1 (f) GDPR.
Purpose of data processing
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user's computer. For this purpose, the user’s IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session. The data is stored in log files in order to ensure the functionality of the website. This data is used in particular to optimise our website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.
These purposes also include our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 (f) GDPR.
Duration of storage
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected, i.e. when the current session has ended.
Right to objection and removal
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. Consequently, it is not possible for the user to object to this.
Description and scope of data processing
The user data collected in this way is pseudonymised by technical measures. Therefore, it is no longer possible to assign the data to the user who accessed the website. The data is not stored together with the users’ other personal data.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies is Article 6 paragraph 1 (f) GDPR. The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies that are technically necessary is Article 6 paragraph 1 (f) GDPR. The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies for analysis purposes is Article 6 paragraph 1 (a) GDPR if the user has given their consent.
Purpose of data processing
The analysis cookies are used for the purpose of improving the quality of our website and its content. The analysis cookies allow us to learn how the website is used and we can thus constantly optimise our offering.
These purposes also include our legitimate interest in processing personal data pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 (f) GDPR.
Contact form and email contact
Description and scope of data processing
Alternatively, you can contact us using the email address provided. In this case, the user’s personal data transmitted in the email will be stored. The data will not be passed on to third parties in this context. The legal basis for the processing of this data is Article 6 paragraph 1 (f) GDPR. If the purpose of the email contact is to conclude a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Article 6 paragraph 1 (b) GDPR.
Purpose of data processing
The processing of the personal data from the contact form serves solely to process the contact. In the case of contact via email, this also constitutes the required legitimate interest in processing the data. The other personal data processed during the sending process serves to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.
Duration of storage
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and that sent by email, this is the case when the respective contact with the user has ended. Contact shall be deemed to have ended when it is clear from the circumstances that the facts in question have been finally clarified.
The additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of seven days at the latest.
Right to objection and removal
The user has the option to revoke their consent for the processing of personal data at any time. If the user contacts us by email, they can object to the storage of their personal data at any time. In such a case, contact cannot be continued to clarify the circumstances.
In this case, all personal data stored in the course of contact will be deleted.
The data controller has integrated contents, services and performances of other providers in the website. These include, for example, maps provided by Google Maps, videos from YouTube and graphics and images from other websites. In order for this data to be retrieved and displayed in the user’s browser, the transmission of the IP address is absolutely necessary. The providers (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) therefore detect the IP address of the respective user.
Even if we make every effort to use only third party providers who only need the IP address to deliver content, we have no influence on whether the IP address may be stored. In this case, this process serves statistical purposes, among others. If we are aware that the IP address is being stored, we will inform our users accordingly.
Use and application of Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)
The data controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the gathering, collection and evaluation of data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service gathers data on which website a data subject came to another website from (known as a referrer), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often a subpage was viewed and how long the person remained on the subpage. Web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.
The Google Analytics component’s operating company is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The data controller uses the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for the web analysis using Google Analytics. This addition is used by Google to shorten and anonymise the IP address of the internet connection of the data subject if access to our web pages is from a Member State of the European Union or from another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us showing the activities on our website and to provide other services in connection with the use of our website.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. There is an explanation of what cookies are above. By placing the cookie, Google is able to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission statements. The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which a visit originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may share this personal data collected through the technical procedure with third parties.
The data subject can prevent the placing of cookies by our website at any time, as described above, by using an appropriate setting of their internet browser and thus permanently object to the placement of cookies. A setting in the internet browser used such as this would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already placed by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.
Data protection for applications and in the application process
We collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application process. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits the relevant application documents to us electronically, for example by email or via an online form on the website. If we conclude an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If we do not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that deletion does not conflict with any other legitimate interests on our part. Other legitimate interests in this sense include, for example, the duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz - AGG).
Rights of the data subject
If your personal data is processed, you are the data subject in the sense of the GDPR and you are entitled to the following rights with respect to the data controller: Right to information
You can request confirmation from the data controller as to whether your personal data will be processed by us. In the event of such processing, you may request the following information from the data controller:
(1) the purposes for which the personal data is processed;
(2) the categories of personal data processed;
(3) the recipients or categories of recipients to whom your personal data has been or will be disclosed;
(4) the planned duration of storage of your personal data or, if this is not possible, criteria for determining the duration of storage;
(5) the existence of a right to rectify or delete your personal data, a right to limit the processing by the controller or a right to object to such processing;
(6) the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority;
(7) all available information on the origins of the data if the personal data is not collected from the data subject; (8) the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, in accordance with Article 22 paragraphs 1 and 4 GDPR and – at least in these cases – meaningful information on the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing on the data subject.
You have the right to request information as to whether your personal data will be transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context, you may request to be informed of the appropriate guarantees pursuant to Article 46 GDPR in connection with the transfer.
Right to rectification
You have the right to have your personal data corrected and/or completed by the data controller if the processed personal data concerning you is inaccurate or incomplete. The data controller must carry out the correction immediately.
Right to restriction of processing
Under the following conditions, you may request that the processing of your personal data be restricted:
(1) if you dispute the accuracy of your personal data for a period of time which enables the data controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
(2) the processing is unlawful and you refuse to delete the personal data and instead request the restriction of the use of the personal data;
(3) the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or
(4) if you have objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21 paragraph 1 GDPR and it has not yet been established whether the legitimate reasons of the data controller outweigh your reasons.
Where the processing of your personal data has been restricted, such data may not be processed, with the exception of its storage, without your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending rights or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.
If the processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.
Right to deletion
Obligation to delete
You may request that the data controller delete your personal data immediately and the data controller is obliged to delete this data immediately if one of the following reasons applies:
(1) Your personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
(2) You revoke your consent on which the processing pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 (a) or Article 9 paragraph 2 (a) GDPR was based and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
(3) You object to the processing pursuant to Article 21 paragraph 1 GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing or you object to the processing pursuant to Article 21 paragraph 2 GDPR.
(4) Your personal data has been processed unlawfully.
(5) The deletion of your personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the data controller is subject.
(6) Your personal data has been collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Article 8 paragraph 1 GDPR.
Information to third parties
If the data controller has made the your personal data public and is obliged to delete it in accordance with Article 17 paragraph 1 GDPR, they shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform the persons responsible for data processing who process the personal data that you, as the data subject, have requested that they delete all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data.
The right to deletion does not exist if the processing is necessary
(1) for the exercise of freedom of expression and information;
(2) to fulfil a legal obligation which the processing requires under the law of the Union or of the Member States to which the controller is subject or to carry out a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority delegated to the controller;
(3) for reasons of public interest in the field of public health pursuant to Article 9 paragraph 2 (h) and (i) and Article 9 paragraph 3 GDPR;
(4) for archival purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89 paragraph 1 GDPR, insofar as the law referred to in Section a) presumably makes the attainment of the objectives of such processing impossible or seriously impairs them, or
(5) to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
Right to notification
If you have exercised your right to rectify, delete or restrict the processing of your personal data with regard to the controller, the latter is obliged to notify all recipients to whom your personal data has been disclosed of such rectification, deletion or restriction, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. They shall have the right with regard to the controller to be informed of such recipients.
Right of data portability
You have the right to receive your personal data that you have provided to the data controller in a structured, established and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to communicate this data to another data controller without being hindered by the controller to whom the personal data was given, provided that
(1) the processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 (a) GDPR or Article 9 paragraph 2 (a) GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 (b) GDPR and
(2) the processing is carried out by automated means.
In exercising this right, you also have the right to request that your personal data be transmitted directly by one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. Freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.
The right to data portability does not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority delegated to the controller.
Right of objection
You have the right at any time, for reasons arising out of your particular situation, to raise an objection to the processing of your personal data, which is carried out pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 (e) GDPR (data processing in the public interest) or Articles 6 paragraph 1 (f) GDPR, this also applies to a profiling based on this provision.
The controller will no longer process your personal data unless they can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the purpose of enforcing, pursuing or defending legal claims.
If your personal data is processed in order to carry out direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling, as far as it is associated with such direct marketing.
If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, your personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes.
You have the option to exercise your right of objection in relation to the use of Information Society services - notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC – by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
Right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection law
You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent up to the revocation.
Automated decision in individual cases including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to any decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, that has any legal effect on you or similarly significantly affects you. This shall not apply if the decision
(1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the controller,
(2) is authorised by legislation of the Union or of the Member States to which the controller is subject and contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests; or
(3) is taken with your express consent. However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Article 9 paragraph 1 GDPR, unless Article 9 paragraph 2 (a) or g applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.
In the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the controller shall take reasonable steps to safeguard the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, including at least the right of the controller to obtain the intervention of a person, to present their point of view and to contest the decision.
As a responsible company, we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.
Right to Complain to a Supervisory Authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you shall have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, place of work or place of presumed infringement, if you consider that the processing of your personal data is in breach of the GDPR.
The supervisory authority to which the complaint was submitted shall inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 of the GDPR.
We use the most common SSL (Secure Socket Layer) method in connection with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser. This is generally 256-bit encryption.
