2. Legal basis for processing
The processing of personal data requires a legal basis, which we would like to introduce below.
Article 6 (1) lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) provides the legal basis for data processing for which we obtain the consent of the data subject.
Article 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO provides the legal basis for the processing of personal data required to fulfil a contract to which the data subject is a party. This includes processing operations necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.
Article 6 (1) lit. c DSGVO provides the legal basis to the extent that processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject.
Article 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO p provides the legal basis for processing if the processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not prevail over the former interests. The legitimate interest of our company consists in the conduct of our business as well as in the analysis, optimisation and maintenance of the security of our online offering.

II. Log files

Such data is automatically stored in the server statistics which the browser transmits to us within the scope of our legitimate interest of analysis and for security reasons (so-called “log files”).

This includes the following data in detail:
• Language and version of the browser software
• Operating system used and its interface
• Referrer URL (the previously visited page)
• Host name of the accessing computer (IP address)
• Date and time of the server request
• Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
• Content of the request (specific page)
• Amount of data transferred
• Access status/HTTP status code.
We usually cannot assign this data to specific individuals. A merge of this data with other data sources will not be undertaken. The data will also be deleted after a statistical evaluation within 7 days. Data whose further retention is required for evidential purposes is exempted from deletion until final clarification of the incident.

III. Contractual processing

The personal data provided by you for contractual purposes, such as your name, address or e-mail address, will only be used internally to answer your inquiries, to process your orders or to give you access to certain contractual information.

IV. Contact, application data

When you contact us by e-mail or via the contact form, your details will be stored by us to answer your questions.

Disclosure to third parties does not take place unless valid data protection regulations justify a transfer or we are legally obliged to do so. You may revoke your consent at any time with future effect. In the event of revocation of consent, your data will be deleted immediately. Your data will otherwise be deleted if we have processed your request or the purpose of the storage no longer applies. You can always inform yourself about the data stored on your person.

You can also apply via our contact form. The entered data will be processed and used exclusively for the purpose of applicant selection. With your application, you consent that you may be contacted and informed in writing and/or by phone as part of the application process. Please note that your data will not be stored anonymously, but will be accessible to our HR department and the relevant personnel for the vacant position. We would like to rate all applicants only on the basis of their qualifications, regardless of race, ethnic origin, gender, religion or belief, disability, age or sexual identity. We therefore ask you to refrain from providing such information in the application as possible. You can change or delete your application at any time and revoke your consent. Please contact our team about this.

V. Cookies

This site uses cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and through which the entity that sets the cookie receives certain information. They serve to make the website more user-friendly and effective or/and to facilitate navigation on our website.

You can also use our website without accepting cookies. You can also configure your browser settings according to your wishes and, for example, reject acceptance of third-party cookies or all cookies or delete already stored cookies. If you do not accept cookies, please note that in this case our website may not work properly.
You can find out under the individual features below which of our website features set cookies.

VI. Passing on data to third parties

We pass data on to third parties, if this is necessary for the fulfilment of the contract and/or we are legally obliged to do so in individual cases.

We sometimes use external third-party service providers in the context of our legitimate interests with regard to analysis, optimisation and economical operation of our online offering. This always requires that the third-party providers of this content know the IP address of the users, since they could not send the content to the user’s browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. Third parties may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also called “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. The “pixel tags” can be used to evaluate information, such as visitor traffic, on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user’s device and may include, among other things, technical information similar to the log files. We list our service providers below.

If your data is to be used for other purposes, we will inform you beforehand and only use the data if you have previously expressly agreed to this.

Service provider: Google
We use services provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, (“Google”) within the scope of our legitimate interests in the analysis, optimisation, and economic operation of our online offering.
Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, which provides a guarantee to comply with European data protection law.

Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics as a web analytics service. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, which are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

Please note that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp ()”. Therefore IP addresses will be shortened by Google in member states within the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transferred in order to exclude direct personal reference. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
Google will use this information on behalf of the provider to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity for the website operators and to provide other services related to website usage and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if required by law or as far as third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Google will never associate your IP address with other Google data. You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we point out that in this case you may not be able to use all features of this website to the full extent.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Google, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the Google Privacy Policy here as well as especially for Google Analytics here and here.

By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

The collection and storage of data by Google may be objected to for the respective device at any time with future effect in connection with the use here.

You can also prevent collection by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set, which prevents the future collection of your data when visiting this website with this device:

Opt out Google Analytics

Important: If you delete your cookies, this will result in the deactivation cookie being deleted as well. You will have then have to set the deactivation cookie again.

VII. Rights of the person concerned

You have a right to information about the personal data stored about you by us. By law, you also have the right to correct inaccurate data, block or transfer data, and delete your personal information. Please send us an e-mail with the “Data Protection” in the subject line.
You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a data-protection supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you is contrary to the law.

If you have given your consent, you have the right to revoke your consent at any time. This does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.

You can object to the future processing of your personal data in accordance with legal requirements at any time. Objection may in particular be made against processing for direct marketing purposes.

VIII. Storage period for personal data

We store personal data for the duration of the respective legal retention period. After expiry of the retention period, the data will be routinely deleted unless it is needed for contract implementation or fulfilment. If the user’s data is not deleted because it is required for other and legally permitted purposes, the processing of this data will be restricted. The data will accordingly be blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to user data that must be kept for commercial or tax reasons.

IX. Security information

We make every effort and take all technical and organisational measures to process your personal data in such a way that the provisions of data-protection laws are adhered to and to ensure this data is protected.
