Your data processed when using our website will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies, the deletion of the data does not conflict with any legal storage obligations and no other information on individual processing methods is provided below.
Diese so erhobenen Daten werden vorrübergehend gespeichert, dies jedoch nicht gemeinsam mit anderen Daten von Ihnen.
This storage takes place on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the improvement, stability, functionality and security of our Internet presence.
The data will be deleted after seven days at the latest, unless further storage is required for evidential purposes. Otherwise, the data are completely or partially excluded from deletion until the final clarification of an incident.
We use so-called cookies with our Internet presence. Cookies are small text files or other storage technologies that are stored on your terminal device by the Internet browser you use. Through these cookies, certain information from you, such as your browser or location data or your IP address, is processed to an individual extent.
This processing makes our Internet presence more user-friendly, effective and secure, as the processing enables, for example, the reproduction of our Internet presence in different languages or the offer of a shopping basket function.
The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b.) DSGVO, insofar as these cookies process data for the purpose of contract initiation or contract processing.
If the processing does not serve the purpose of contract initiation or contract processing, our legitimate interest lies in the improvement of the functionality of our Internet presence. The legal basis is then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.
These session cookies are deleted when you close your Internet browser.
Gegebenenfalls werden mit unserem Internetauftritt auch Cookies von Partnerunternehmen, mit denen wir zum Zwecke der Werbung, der Analyse oder der Funktionalitäten unseres Internetauftritts zusammenarbeiten, verwendet.
Die Einzelheiten hierzu, insbesondere zu den Zwecken und den Rechtsgrundlagen der Verarbeitung solcher Drittanbieter-Cookies, entnehmen Sie bitte den nachfolgenden Informationen.
You can prevent or restrict the installation of cookies by adjusting your Internet browser settings. You can also delete already stored cookies at any time. However, the steps and measures required for this depend on the Internet browser you are actually using. If you have any questions, please use the help function or documentation of your Internet browser or contact its manufacturer or support. With so-called Flash cookies, however, processing cannot be prevented by the browser settings. Instead, you must change the settings of your Flash player. The steps and measures required for this also depend on the Flash Player you are actually using. If you have any questions, please also use the help function or documentation of your Flash Player or contact the manufacturer or user support.
If you prevent or restrict the installation of cookies, however, this may mean that not all functions of our website can be used to their full extent.
If you register for our free newsletter, the data requested by you for this purpose, i.e. your e-mail address and - optionally - your name and address, will be transmitted to us. At the same time we save the IP address of the internet connection from which you access our website as well as the date and time of your registration. During the further registration process, we will obtain your consent to send you the newsletter, describe the content specifically and refer you to this data protection declaration. We use the data collected in the process exclusively for sending the newsletter - they are therefore in particular not passed on to third parties.
The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO.
You can revoke your consent to receive the newsletter at any time with effect for the future in accordance with Art. 7 para. 3 DSGVO. To do so, you only need to inform us of your revocation or click on the unsubscribe link contained in every newsletter.
If you contact us via contact form or e-mail, the data you provide will be used to process your request. The provision of the data is necessary for processing and answering your enquiry - without the provision of this data, we cannot answer your enquiry or can only answer it to a limited extent.
The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.
Your data will be deleted if your enquiry has been finally answered and the deletion is not opposed by any legal storage obligations, as for example in the case of a possible subsequent contract processing.
We offer you the opportunity to apply for a job with us via our website. With these digital applications, your applicant and application data will be collected and processed electronically by us for the purpose of handling the application procedure.
The legal basis for this processing is § 26 para. 1 p. 1 BDSG in conjunction with Art. 88 para. 1 DSGVO.
If a contract of employment is concluded after the application procedure, we will store the data you provide during the application process in your personnel file for the purpose of the usual organisational and administrative process - this is, of course, in compliance with the more extensive legal obligations.
The legal basis for this processing is also § 26 para. 1 sentence 1 BDSG in conjunction with Art. 88 para. 1 DSGVO.
If an application is rejected, we automatically delete the data transmitted to us two months after notification of the rejection. However, the data will not be deleted if the data requires longer storage of up to four months or until the conclusion of legal proceedings due to legal provisions, e.g. due to the obligation to provide evidence under the AGG.
The legal basis in this case is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO and Art. 24 para. 1 no. 2 BDSG. Our legitimate interest lies in legal defence or enforcement.
If you expressly consent to a longer storage of your data, e.g. for your inclusion in a database of applicants or interested parties, the data will be processed further on the basis of your consent. The legal basis is then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO. However, you can of course revoke your consent at any time in accordance with Art. 7 Para. 3 DSGVO by making a declaration to us with effect for the future.
We maintain an online presence at LinkedIn to present our company and our services and to communicate with customers/interested parties. LinkedIn is a service of LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland, a subsidiary of LinkedIn Corporation, 1000 W. Maude Avenue, Sunnyvale, CA 94085, USA.
In this respect, we point out that there is a possibility that user data may be processed outside the European Union, in particular in the USA. This may increase the risks for the user in that, for example, subsequent access to the user data may become more difficult. We also have no access to this user data. The access possibility lies exclusively with LinkedIn. LinkedIn Corporation is certified under the Privacy Shield and has thus committed itself to comply with European data protection standards
To promote our products and services and to communicate with interested parties or customers, we operate a company presence on the Facebook platform.
On this social media platform we are jointly responsible with Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2 Ireland.
The data protection officer of Facebook can be reached via a contact form:
Die gemeinsame Verantwortlichkeit haben wir in einer Vereinbarung bezüglich der jeweiligen Verpflichtungen im Sinne der DSGVO geregelt. Diese Vereinbarung, aus der sich die gegenseitigen Verpflichtungen ergeben, ist unter dem folgenden Link abrufbar:
The legal basis for the processing of personal data which is carried out as a result and which is reproduced below is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. We have a legitimate interest in the analysis, communication, sales and advertising of our products and services.
The legal basis may also be the user's consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO to the platform operator. The user can revoke this consent for the future at any time by notifying the platform operator in accordance with Art. 7 Para. 3 DSGVO.
When our online presence is called up on the Facebook platform, user data (e.g. personal information, IP address etc.) are processed by Facebook Ireland Ltd. as operator of the platform in the EU.
This user data is used for statistical information about the use of our company presence on Facebook. Facebook Ireland Ltd. uses this data for market research and advertising purposes as well as to create user profiles. Using these profiles, Facebook Ireland Ltd. is, for example, able to promote the interests of users within and outside of Facebook. If the user is logged into his or her account on Facebook at the time of access, Facebook Ireland Ltd. can also link the data to the respective user account.
In the event that the user contacts Facebook, the user's personal data entered on this occasion will be used to process the request. The user's data will be deleted by us, provided that the user's inquiry has been finally answered and there are no legal storage obligations, e.g. in the case of a subsequent execution of the contract.
If the user does not agree with this processing, it is possible to prevent the installation of cookies by adjusting the browser settings accordingly. Already stored cookies can also be deleted at any time. The settings for this depend on the respective browser. In the case of flash cookies, processing cannot be prevented by the browser settings, but by the corresponding setting of the flash player. If the user prevents or restricts the installation of cookies, this can lead to the fact that not all Facebook functions can be used to their full extent.
More details on the processing activities, their prevention and the deletion of data processed by Facebook can be found in the Facebook data policy:
It is not excluded that the processing by Facebook Ireland Ltd. may also take place via Facebook Inc, 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California 94025 in the USA.
Facebook Inc. has subjected itself to the "EU-US Privacy Shield" and thereby declares compliance with EU data protection regulations when processing data in the USA.
We also advertise on our website presences on the social networks listed below. The integration takes place via a linked graphic of the respective network. The use of this linked graphic prevents that when a website with a social media application is called up, a connection is automatically established to the respective server of the social network to display a graphic of the respective network itself. Only by clicking on the corresponding graphic is the user forwarded to the service of the respective social network.
After the user is forwarded, information about the user is collected by the respective network. It cannot be excluded that the data collected in this way is processed in the USA.
This is initially data such as IP address, date, time and visited page. If the user is logged into his user account of the respective network during this time, the network operator may be able to assign the collected information of the user's specific visit to the user's personal account. If the user interacts via a "share" button of the respective network, this information can be stored in the user's personal user account and, if necessary, published. If the user wants to prevent the collected information from being directly assigned to his user account, he must log out before clicking on the graphic. It is also possible to configure the respective user account accordingly.
