(1) Your personal data, as far as they are necessary for the establishment, content arrangement or change of the contractual relationship (stock data), will be used exclusively for the execution of the contract. For example, your name and address must be passed on to the supplier of the goods for delivery of the goods.
(2) Without a legal basis your personal data will not be passed on to third parties outside the contract execution. After complete execution of the contract, your data will be blocked for further use. After expiry of the tax and commercial law regulations, this data will be deleted unless you have expressly consented to its further use.
(3) When you contact us by e-mail or via a contact form, the data you provide (your e-mail address, your name, and any other information you voluntarily provide) will be stored by us to answer your questions. We will delete all data arising in this context as soon as their storage becomes unnecessary or limit the processing if statutory retention obligations exist.
(4) When using the website for information purposes only, i.e., if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. If you wish to view our website, we generally collect the following data, which are technically necessary for us to display our website to you and to guarantee stability and security (legal basis is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 (f) GDPR):
You have the following rights over your personal data against us under the respective legal conditions:
You also have the right to complain to a data protection authority about our processing of your personal data.
(2) Cookies can contain data that make it possible to recognize the device used or merely contain information on certain settings that cannot be related to a specific person. However, cookies cannot directly identify a user. There are two types of cookies: so-called session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and so-called permanent cookies, which are stored beyond the individual session. You can find more information about the cookies we set in our Consent Management Tool. This tool will also enable you to customize your settings and withdraw consent that has been given. You can open our Consent Management Tool (cookie banner) at any time by clicking on “Privacy Settings” at the bottom of our website.
(3) We set cookies that are necessary to navigate the website, use basic functions and ensure the security of the website; this is our legitimate interest (Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 (f) GDPR). These cookies neither collect information about you for marketing purposes nor store which websites you have visited. The legal basis for the use of technically necessary cookies is Section 25 (2) No. 2 of the German Telecommunications-Telemedia Data Protection Act (TTDSG). Moreover, with your consent, we use technologies that are not necessary for the use of the website. You can find more information on this in our Consent Management Tool. You can also make your individual settings there. Insofar as cookies are not absolutely necessary for the operation of the website, we will only set such cookies after your consent. The legal basis for such cookies is Section 25 (1) TTDSG.
(1) This website uses the cookie consent technology “Real Cookie Banner” to obtain your consent to the storage of certain cookies on your terminal device or to the use of certain technologies and to document this in accordance with data protection law. The provider of this technology is devowl.io GmbH, Tannet 12, 94539 Grafling (hereinafter “Real Cookie Banner”).(2) When you visit our website, the following personal data is transferred to Real Cookie Banner:
Furthermore, Real Cookie Banner stores a cookie in your browser in order to be able to assign the consent(s) given or their revocation to you. The data collected in this way will be stored until you request us to delete it, until Real Cookie Banner deletes the cookies itself, or until the purpose for storing the data no longer applies. Mandatory legal storage obligations remain unaffected.
(3) Real Cookie Banner is used to obtain the legally required consent for the use of certain technologies. The legal basis for this is Section 25 (2) No. 2 TTDSG and Art. 6.(1) sentence 1 (c) GDPR.
(4) For more information on the Real Cookie Banner, please visit the provider’s website.
(1) On our website we use the service WPML of the provider OnTheGoSystems Limited, 22/F 3 Lockhart Road, Wanchai, Hong Kong (hereinafter: “WPML”). WPML is a multi-language plugin for WordPress. We use WPML to be able to display our online presence in different languages. When you visit our website, WPML stores a cookie on your terminal device to save the language setting you have selected. This allows personal data to be stored and analyzed, in particular the user’s activity (especially which pages have been visited and which elements have been clicked on) as well as device and browser information (especially the IP address and the operating system). Since these are session cookies, the cookies are deleted again as soon as you close your browser.
(2) The use of WPML serves to display our website in multiple languages and to save your settings. The legal basis for data processing is Section 25 (2) No. 2 TTDSG and Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 (f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in addressing visitors to our online presence in your native language.
(1) We use the plugin Elementor Website Builder for WordPress on our website, from the provider Elementor 8 THE GRN STE A DOVER, DE 19901 USA (hereinafter “Elementor”). Elementor is a software used to create the layout of this website. Cookies are used to store the number of page accesses and active sessions of the user. The collected data is not used for analysis purposes, but only for technical purposes to ensure that, e.g. hidden elements are not displayed again during several active sessions. Since the plugin uses session cookies, the cookies are deleted again as soon as you close your browser.
(2) The use of Elementor serves to be able to present our website in a user-friendly manner. The legal basis for data processing is Section 25 (2) No. 2 TTDSG and Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 (f) GDPR.
(1) This website uses the WordPress plugin Wordfence for security purposes. The provider is Defiant, Inc, 800 5th Ave Ste 4100, Seattle, WA 98104, USA (hereinafter “Wordfence”). The plugin protects the website against attempts by third parties to gain unauthorized access to the website and thereby obtain personal data, embed malware on the website or perform other illegal activities.
(2) The plugin sets cookies to detect whether the website is actually visited by a person or by a robot. For the purpose of protection against so-called brute force attacks (numerous automated login attempts from the same identity) or against hacker comment spam, IP addresses are stored on the Wordfence servers. IP addresses classified as harmless are placed on a whitelist. Wordfence Security secures this website and thus also protects visitors to the website from viruses and malware.
(3) Wordfence is used to increase the security of this website and thus also the security of the website users. This represents our legitimate interest in using the plugin. The legal basis for the data processing is Section 25 (2) No. 2 TTDSG and Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 (f) GDPR.
(1) On our website we use the plugin Tagembed of the provider Tagembed, 237 Kearny Street San Francisco, California 94108, USA (hereinafter: “Tagembed”). Tagembed is a tool for integrating the most recent postings on our LinkedIn profile (https://www.linkedin.com/company/77668850) on our website. For this purpose, our website establishes a permanent connection to LinkedIn’s servers.
(2) To ensure that visiting our website with embedded content does not automatically lead to content from the third-party provider being reloaded, we only display a button in a first step. This does not provide the third-party provider with any information. Only when you agree to the use of Tagembed in our Consent Management Tool (under functional cookies) is third-party content reloaded. Through this, LinkedIn receives the information that you have accessed our site as well as the usage data technically required in this context. In addition, LinkedIn is then able to implement tracking technologies. Finally, LinkedIn also receives information when you view content, for example, even if you have not created an account. This so-called “log data” may be the IP address, browser type, operating system, information about the website you previously visited and the pages you viewed, your location, your mobile provider, the terminal device you use (including device ID and application ID), the search terms you used and cookie information. We have no influence on the further data processing by LinkedIn. By activating the Tagembed tool, you give us consent to reload third-party content. You can withdraw this consent at any time in our Consent Management Tool.
(4) The legal basis for setting the cookies and further data processing is your consent and thus Section 25 (1) TTDSG and Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 (a) GDPR. Insofar as a transfer of data to the USA or another third country takes place, such a third country transfer is based on your consent according to Art. 49 (1) sentence 1 (a) GDPR, which you can give and withdraw in the Consent Management Tool.
This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “anonymizeIP()”. Accordingly, IP addresses are only processed in abbreviated form to exclude direct personal references. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 (f) GDPR.
(2) Under the terms of the Order Processing Agreement, which the website operators have concluded with Google, the latter uses the collected information to evaluate website usage and website activity and provides services related to internet usage.
(3) The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. Deletion of data at user and event level linked to cookies, user IDs (e.g. user ID) and advertising IDs takes place no later than 14 months after their collection.
(7) In connection with the provision of services, Google may also transfer the data processed to servers outside the EU, in particular in the USA, insofar as this is necessary for the provision of these services. As we have already explained, there is no adequacy decision by the EU Commission for the USA and there is no consistently high level of data protection due to differing legal provisions. The transfer of data to servers in the USA may therefore give rise to additional risks, for example, it may be more difficult to enforce the rights of the data subject to this data. We have therefore concluded the EU standard data protection clauses with Google, which also stipulate the implementation of appropriate protective measures, which may also include encryption of the data depending on the need for protection, and which are improved in accordance with the legal and technical conditions for appropriate protection of the data. Insofar as a transfer of data to the USA or another third country takes place, such a third country transfer is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 49 (1) sentence 1 (a) GDPR, which you can grant and withdraw in our Consent Management Tool.
(1) If you apply to us by e-mail or post, we will store your details for the purpose of carrying out and for the duration of the application process. This concerns the personal data you provide in your application documents, e.g., name, address, e-mail address, phone number, and possibly also sensitive data, such as religious affiliation or severely disabled status. If you apply to us via portals operated by third parties, we will receive your data from the source to which you have declared your consent to the transfer of data. You can obtain more information on data collection from the source in question.
(2) The provision of your personal data is necessary to carry out the application process. The legal basis for the aforementioned data processing is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 (b) GDPR and Art. 88 GDPR in conjunction with Section 26 of the German Data Protection Act (BDSG).
(3) As part of the application process, we also check whether we can offer you another vacancy that matches your application. If we are interested in retaining your application documents for a later date, we will ask you for separate consent to this effect. Otherwise, we will store your application data for a period of six months after the conclusion of an unsuccessful application process, unless this conflicts with statutory retention obligations. The legal basis for the aforementioned data processing is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 (c) and (f) GDPR.
(4) As a matter of principle, your data will be processed exclusively by us and will not be passed on to third parties. Exceptions concern cases in which the legislator requires or provides for the disclosure of data (for example, in the context of tax audits by the tax authorities). In certain cases, the disclosure of your data to third parties is necessary to protect your or our interests or to fulfill our contractual obligations. This occurs particularly when we use external service providers. In these cases, the service provider is bound by instructions and receives personal data only to the extent and for the period that is necessary for the provision of the services in question. A transfer abroad does not take place and is not intended.
Since this data protection notice may change from time to time due to legal changes or new functions within the scope of our offer, we recommend that you call it up regularly.
