General Information on the Legal Basis for Data Processing on This Website
Revoking Your Consent to Data Processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. The legality of the data processing carried out before 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 THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSE OF SUCH MARKETING, INCLUDING PROFILING TO THE EXTENT THAT IT IS RELATED TO 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 Competent Supervisory Authority
In the event of breaches 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 place of the alleged infringement. The right to lodge a complaint is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.
Right to Data Portability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically based on your consent or in fulfillment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.
Information, Deletion, and Rectification
Within the framework of 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 and, if necessary, the right to rectification or deletion of this data. For this purpose and for any further questions regarding personal data, you can contact us at any time.
Right to Restrict Processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. To do so, you can contact us at any time. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the verification, 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, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.
- 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 is not yet clear 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, such data – apart from being stored – may only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, 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.
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 website operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Objection to Promotional Emails
We hereby expressly prohibit the use of contact data published in the context of website legal notice requirements with regard to sending promotional and informational materials that have not been expressly requested. The website operators expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited promotional information, such as spam emails.
3. Data Collection on This Website
Our website uses so-called "cookies." Cookies are small data packets that do not cause any damage to your device. They are either stored temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies) on your device. Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on your 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 (e.g., the shopping cart function or displaying videos). Other cookies can be used to analyze user behavior or for advertising purposes.
Cookies that are necessary for the electronic communication process, the provision of certain desired functions (e.g., shopping cart function), or the optimization of the website (e.g., cookies for measuring web audiences) are stored on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, unless another legal basis is specified. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of their services. If consent to the storage of cookies and similar technologies has been requested, the processing is based exclusively on that consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR and § 25(1) German Telemedia Act [TMG]); consent can be revoked at any time. If cookies are disabled, the functionality of this website may be limited.
You can set your browser to inform you about the setting of cookies, 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 cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be limited.
Server Log Files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which 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 merged with other data sources.
The collection of this data is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimization of their website – for this purpose, the server log files must be recorded.
If you send us inquiries 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 the event of follow-up questions. We will not share this information without your consent.
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 processing your request. We will not share this information without your consent.
The processing of this data is based on Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR if your inquiry is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the inquiries addressed to us (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR) if this has been requested; consent can be revoked at any time.
The data sent to us via contact inquiries will remain with us until you request its deletion, revoke your consent to its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer applies (e.g., after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – especially statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.
4. Our Own Services
Handling of Applicant Data
We offer you the opportunity to apply to us (e.g., by 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 will be in accordance with applicable data protection law and all other legal requirements and that your data will be treated with strict confidentiality.
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 necessary to decide on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is § 26 Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) according to German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR (general initiation of a contract), and – if you have given your consent – Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. Consent can be revoked at any time. Your personal data will only be disclosed within our company to individuals who are involved in processing your application.
If the application is successful, the data submitted by you will be stored on the basis of § 26 BDSG and Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in our data processing systems.
Retention Period of Data
If we are unable to offer you a position, if you reject a job offer, or if you withdraw your application, we reserve the right to store the data you have submitted to us based on our legitimate interests (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR) for up to 6 months after the end of the application process (rejection or withdrawal of the application). Subsequently, the data will be deleted, and the physical application documents will be destroyed. The storage serves primarily as evidence in the event of a legal dispute. If it becomes apparent that the data will be required after the 6-month period has expired (e.g., due to an impending or pending legal dispute), deletion will only occur once the purpose for further storage no longer applies.
A longer storage period may also take place if you have given your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR) or if statutory retention obligations prevent deletion.
