2. Legal basis of the processing
The processing of personal data requires a legal basis, which we would like to present to you below.
For processing of personal data for which we obtain the consent of the data subject, Article 6(1)(a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.
When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6(1)(b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also includes processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6 (1) lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the first-mentioned interest, Article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing. The legitimate interest of our company lies in the performance of our business activities as well as in the analysis, optimization and maintenance of the security of our online offer.

II. Log files, hosting

In the server statistics, data is automatically stored that the browser transmits to us as part of our legitimate interest in analysis and for security reasons (so-called “log files”).

This comprises the following data:
• Language and version of the browser software
• Operating system used and its interface
• Referrer-URL (the website previously visited)
• Hostname of the accessing computer (IP address)
• Date and time of the server request
• Time zone difference with Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
• Content of the request (concrete webpage)
• Data volume transferred
• Access status/ HTTP- Status code.

As a rule, we cannot assign this data to specific persons. A combination of this data with other data sources is not made. The data is also deleted within 7 days after a statistical evaluation. Data whose further retention is required for evidentiary purposes is exempt from deletion until final clarification of the respective incident.

We make use of hosting services. These serve to provide infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services, security services and technical maintenance services to maintain the operation of this online offer.

In doing so, we or our hosting provider process inventory data, contact data, content data, contract data, usage data, meta data and communication data of customers, interested parties and visitors of this online offer on the basis of our legitimate interests in an efficient and secure provision of this online offer.

III. Contractual processing

The personal data provided by you for contractual purposes in the case of, for example, requests for quotations, such as name, address or e-mail address, will only be used internally to answer your inquiries, process your orders or provide you with access to certain contractual information.

IV. Contact, application data

1. Contact
When you contact us by e-mail, your information will be stored by us to answer your questions.
As a matter of principle, data will not be passed on to third parties unless applicable data protection regulations justify a transfer or we are legally obliged to do so. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. In the event of revocation, your data will be deleted immediately, unless there is a legal exception for further processing. Your data will otherwise be deleted when we have processed your request or the purpose of storage has ceased to apply and there are no other legal exceptions to the contrary.

2. Application data
You can also apply to us by e-mail. The data entered will be processed and used exclusively for the purpose of applicant selection. With your application, you agree to be contacted and informed in writing and / or by telephone as part of the application process. Please note that your data will not be stored anonymously, but will be accessible to our human resources department and to the departments relevant to the position to be filled. We wish to evaluate 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 that you refrain from including such information in your application if at all possible. You can have your application changed or deleted at any time and revoke your consent. To do so, please contact our team.

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 are used to make the Internet offer more user-friendly and effective or/and to facilitate your navigation on our website.
We set cookies that are not strictly necessary only with your consent. You can revoke this consent at any time for future use.

Consent is voluntary and you can also use our website without accepting cookies. You can also configure your browser settings according to your wishes and, for example, refuse to accept third party cookies or all cookies or delete cookies that have already been stored. If you do not accept cookies, please note that in this case our offer may not work properly. If we do not provide any other information on the individual topics mentioned in this data protection declaration or in the cookie banner, the lifetime of the cookies refers to 24 months.
You can find out which function on our website uses cookies below under the individual functions.

VI. Our presences in social media

You can find us under online presences within social networks and platforms. With these presences, we would like to communicate with our customers, interested parties and users active there and inform them about our services and our company in this way.
The processing of the personal data of the users active there is based on our legitimate interests in communicating and providing information to and with the users. If users have given their consent to data processing on the respective social platform, the processing is carried out on the basis of this consent.

If you visit one of our social media sites, we are jointly responsible with the operator of the social platform for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. In principle, you can assert your rights (information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability and complaint, see the following point “Rights of the data subject”) both against us and against the operator of the respective social platform.
We would like to point out that despite the joint responsibility, we do not have full influence on the data processing operations of the social platform and, if necessary, forward the rights request to the respective operator for better processing of the data subject rights. Our options are basically based on the corporate policy of the respective provider.

You can find our storage details below. We have no influence on the storage period of your data, which is stored by the operator of the social platform for its own purposes. For details, please contact the operators of the social networks directly (e.g. in their privacy policy, see below).

Depending on the following named social platform, the data processing of users may also occur outside the area of the European Union. EU standard contractual clauses have been agreed with the US companies, so that we have taken possible measures to ensure compliance with the GDPR.

As a rule, user data is processed by the platforms for market research and advertising purposes. For example, usage profiles can be created from the usage behavior and resulting interests of the users. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements within and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For this purpose, cookies are usually stored on the users’ computers, in which the usage behavior and interests of the users are stored. Data can also be stored in the usage profiles regardless of the devices used by the users. This occurs in particular if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them.

For a detailed presentation of the respective processing and the objection options, we refer to the information of the providers linked below.

After expiry of the retention period, the data is routinely deleted, unless it is necessary for the initiation or performance of a contract. If user data is not deleted because it is required for other and legally permissible purposes, its processing will be restricted as far as possible. Accordingly, the data will be blocked if possible and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to user data that must be retained for reasons of commercial or tax law.
