Data protection and the protection of your personal data is a top priority for us. We inform you below about the processing of your personal data on our website.

3. processing of personal data on our website

3.1 Provision of the website and creation of log files
It is not necessary for you to provide personal data simply to visit our website and access the information contained therein.
During your visit to our website, we only collect and use data that your internet browser automatically transmits to us:

  • the date and time of accessing one of our web pages
  • Your browser type
  • Your browser settings
  • your IP address
  • the pages you have visited

We use this data to technically enable you to visit our website. We also use this data for statistical purposes and to improve the design and layout of our website. We store the IP address for the purposes of ensuring and maintaining IT security (e.g. detection and defence against so-called DOS attacks) and functionality.
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.

3.2 Personal data Forms
Personal data is only collected if you provide it voluntarily as part of a contact enquiry or an application.

3.3 Contact form, application
There are several contact forms on our website that can be used to contact us electronically.
When using these options, the data entered in the input mask is transmitted to us and stored. This data depends on the respective form:

  • Company
  • Surname
  • First name
  • Street, house number
  • Postcode, place of residence
  • Email address
  • Telephone number
  • Fax

Your consent to the processing of the data may be obtained during the sending process and reference will be made to this privacy policy.
The data sent via the form will be transmitted to us in encrypted form.
Alternatively, you can contact us via the email address provided. In this case, the user's personal data transmitted with the e-mail will be stored.

3.4 Purposes and legal basis for data processing
The processing of personal data from the input mask serves us solely to process the contact. If contact is made by email, this also constitutes the necessary legitimate interest in processing the data.
The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an email is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If the e-mail contact is aimed at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 letter b GDPR.
The legal basis in the application process is derived from Section 26 BDSG-Neu and Art. 88 GDPR. The purpose of collecting your personal data is your application process. We will therefore only use your applicant data for the purpose of processing your application.

3.5 Storage period or criteria for determining the duration
Contact form: If the purpose for storing the data no longer applies, the personal data will be blocked or deleted as long as this does not conflict with statutory retention obligations.
Application: We store your personal data upon receipt of your application. If you are hired, we will store your applicant data in accordance with the statutory retention periods after any termination of the relevant employment relationship. If we reject your application, we will store your applicant data for six months after your application has been rejected, unless you give us your consent to store it for longer

3.6 Recipients or categories of recipients of the data (if data is transferred)

Within the company, those departments that need your data to fulfil your request will receive it. As part of the application process, your data will be transmitted to the relevant specialist department.

3.7 Information on the rights of data subjects
Every data subject has the following data protection rights under the GDPR

  • Right to information in accordance with Art. 15 GDPR
  • Right to rectification of inaccurate data in accordance with Art. 16 GDPR
  • Right to erasure in accordance with Art. 17 GDPR
  • Right to restriction of processing in accordance with Art. 18 GDPR
  • Right to data portability in accordance with Art. 20 GDPR
  • Right to object in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR

To exercise the above rights and to withdraw your consent, please contact the email address provided in the legal notice.

You have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. You can assert this right with a supervisory authority in the member state of your place of residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement.
Before you contact the competent supervisory authority with a complaint, we would ask you to clarify this matter with our data protection officer.

3.8 Planned data transfer to third countries
There is currently no data transfer to third countries and there are no plans to do so in the future.

4. use of cookies

We use so-called "cookies" on our website. These are small text files that are sent from our web server to your computer to identify it for the duration of your visit. We do not collect any personal data via these cookies.

It is also possible to view our website without saving cookies. You can deactivate the storage of cookies in the settings of your browser or set it so that it informs you about the intended storage by a website. In this case, you decide whether to accept the cookie. For technical reasons, however, it is necessary to allow all temporary cookies in order to use the full functionality of our website.

5. use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc ("Google"). This service collects and stores data from which user profiles are created using pseudonyms. These user profiles are used to analyse visitor behaviour and are evaluated in order to improve and tailor our offer.

Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including parts of your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of analysing your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. We will also not merge the pseudonymised user profiles with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym without your express consent, which must be given separately. Data collection for usage statistics and transmission to Google takes place with the extended code "gat._anonymizeIp();". The collection of IP addresses is therefore anonymised (so-called IP masking).

8. safety measures

We use technical and organisational security measures to protect personal data, in particular against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments. We would like to point out that, despite all security measures, it is possible for third parties to gain knowledge of or falsify this data when data is transmitted on the Internet.

9. contact

If you have any questions or suggestions regarding this privacy policy, please contact us at the address given in the legal notice.

10. update of our privacy policy

The ongoing technical development in the field of IT technology and the Internet also requires an adaptation of the existing privacy policy. We therefore reserve the right to make additions or changes to this privacy policy.
