General


The following gives a simple overview of what happens to your personal information when you visit our website. Personal information is any data with which you could be personally identified. Detailed information on the subject of data protection can be found in our privacy policy found below.


Definition of terms (according to GDPR)


To ensure the requirement for an easily understandable and legible form of the data protection declaration, we refer to the generally applicable term standards of the GDPR, which we reproduce below in accordance with the wording of the GDPR:


Personal data
refers to all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (also “data subject”); a natural person is regarded as identifiable, if he/she can be directly or indirectly identified, especially by means of association with an identifier such as a name, with an identification number, with location data, with an online ID or with one or several special features reflecting the physical, physiological, genetic, psychic, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.


Processing
is any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.


Restriction of processing
means marking stored personal data to restrict its future processing.


Profiling
means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.


Pseudonymisation
means the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures ensuring that the personal data is not an identified or an identifiable natural person.


The data collector
is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body, which either alone or with others, determines purposes and means of processing of personal data; where purposes and means of such processing are determined by European Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by EU or Member State law


The processor
is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.


The recipient
is a person, public authority, agency or other body to which personal data is disclosed, whether or not it is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data under EU law or the law of the Member States under a particular investigation mandate shall not be considered recipients; the processing of such data by the said authorities shall be carried out in accordance with the applicable data protection rules in accordance with the purposes of the processing.


A third party
is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.


The data subject's agreement
will be voluntary each time for the particular case, in an informed and unequivocal manner, in the form of a statement or other clear affirmative act indicating the data subject's consent to the processing of personal data concerning him/her.

Revocation of your consent to the processing of your data


Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You may revoke your consent at any time with future effect. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.


Right to object to data collection in special cases and direct mail (Article 21 GDPR)


If the data processing on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f GDPR, you have the right at any time to object to the processing of your personal data for reasons that arise from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which a processing is based can be found in this privacy policy. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can identify compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or processing for the purpose of enforcing, pursuing or defending legal claims.
If your personal data is processed to operate direct mail, 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 mail. If you object, your personal data will then no longer be used for the purpose of direct advertising.


Right to file complaints with regulatory authorities


If there has been a breach of data protection legislation, the person affected may file a complaint with the competent regulatory authorities. The competent regulatory authority for matters related to data protection legislation is the data protection officer of the German state in which our company is headquartered.

Right to data portability


You have the right to have data which we process based on your consent or in fulfillment of a contract automatically delivered to yourself or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you require the direct transfer of data to another responsible party, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.


Information, blocking, deletion


As permitted by law, you have the right to be provided at any time with information free of charge about any of your personal data that is stored as well as its origin, the recipient and the purpose for which it has been processed.

You can contact us at any time using the address given in our legal notice if you have further questions on the topic of personal data.


Right to restriction of processing


You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases: If you deny the accuracy of your personal information stored with us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the audit you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. If the processing of your personal data is unlawful, you may request the restriction of data processing instead of deletion. If we no longer need your personal information, but you need it to exercise, defend or enforce legal claims, you have the right to demand that your personal information will be restricted instead of being deleted.
If you have filed an objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR, a balance must be made between your interests and ours. As long as it is not clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data may be – except for their storage – only with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest.

Data collection on our website


Cookies


Some of our web pages use cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies help make our website more user-friendly, efficient, 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 in your device’s memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognize your browser when you next visit the site.
You can configure your browser to inform you about the use of cookies so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept or reject a cookie. Alternatively, your browser can be configured to automatically accept cookies under certain conditions or to always reject them, or to automatically delete cookies when closing your browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.
Cookies which are necessary to allow electronic communications or to provide certain functions you wish to use (such as the shopping cart) are stored pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1, letter f of GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies to ensure an optimized service provided free of technical errors. If other cookies (such as those used to analyze your surfing behavior) are also stored, they will be treated separately in this privacy policy.


Server log files


The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in “server log files”. 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 data from other sources.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract.


Making contact


To ensure quick and uncomplicated contact, we provide you with an appropriate form; alternatively, you can also contact us via the e-mail addresses provided on our website. Personal data is only collected if you voluntarily provide it to us within the framework of your e-mail or form contact. We use the data you provide without your express permission solely to fulfil and process your contact inquiry. This is not passed on to third parties or only takes place on the basis of your inquiry.


Data protection in job applications and in the application procedure


On our website, we offer you the convenient opportunity to apply to us for correspondingly advertised positions using the provided e-mail address. We use the personal data collected about you exclusively for the purpose of processing the application procedure. If, at the end of the application process, we take you on as an employee, the purpose for processing the data concerned will change: in this case, it will in future be used to carry out and maintain the employment relationship. The personal data of applicants that we do not employ will be kept for possible legal claims (e.g. according to the General Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeinen Gleichbehandlungsgesetz – AGG)) for the necessary period (maximum 6 months) and subsequently destroyed or deleted immediately.


Information on data security


We secure our website and other systems via technical and organisational measures against loss, destruction, access, modification or distribution of your data by unauthorised persons. However, despite regular checks, complete protection against all risks is not possible.


Legal basis for processing


We process personal data according to the specifications of the GDPR, depending on the type and purpose of processing, as follows:

 

Where allowed by law

Our legitimate interest


Our legitimate interest, as defined in Article 6 para. 1(f) GDPR, is based on the performance of our business activities to maintain our operability and to safeguard the employment of our employees.


Storage duration


The duration of the storage of personal data depends on the respective legal retention period after the purpose ceases to apply. After expiry of this period, we will delete the corresponding data if it is no longer necessary for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.

A violation (i.e. the failure to provide the required data) would mean that the respective data processing and consequently the corresponding contract could not be concluded with you. Upon request, we will inform you in individual cases before collecting your data as to whether the provision is required by law or contract, or necessary for concluding the contract, and what consequences this may have for you.


Existence of automated decision-making


We do not make use of automatic decision making and do not use any techniques to carry out profiling measures.
