Data protection

We are pleased that you’ve chosen to visit our website and take an interest in our company. We consider data protection to be a sign of quality for our customers. The protection of your personal data and individual rights is important to us. With this privacy statement, we want to provide transparent information to all the visitors to our site about the nature, extent and purpose of the data that we collect, use and process, and clarify the rights to which you are entitled.

Our website can be used without providing personal data as a matter of principle. However, if you use the services on our company’s website, the processing of your personal data may be required. The data automatically collected when you visit our website or the personal data you enter when using our services will be processed in compliance with the current respective legal provisions regarding the protection of personal data.
If processing of your personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will obtain your consent for the necessary purpose of processing. As the company responsible for such processing, we have taken technical and organisational measures to ensure that your personal data is protected to the highest degree possible. However, please note that transmitting data over the internet can naturally entail holes in security.

If you would like to use our company’s services and do not want to use the internet as your means to do so, you may also contact us by telephone.

2. Collecting general access data

The site provider automatically collects and saves information in a ‘server log’ -
files that are automatically transmitted to us by your browser. These are:


• browser type and version
• operating system used
• referrer URL
• host name of accessing computer
• time of server request
• IP address

This data will not be conflated with other data sources. Please also note that this data cannot be attributed to specific individuals. We will only use this technical access information for the following purposes:


• to improve the attractiveness and usability of our websites,
• to detect technical problems on our website early on,
• to correctly deliver the contents of our website,
• and to provide law enforcement agencies with the necessary information for law enforcement in the event of a cyberattack

This data is stored as a technical precaution for a maximum of seven days to protect the data processing systems against unauthorised access.

3. Collection and transfer of personal data

We only use your personal data for the purposes of data protection as stated on this information page. On our website the following input masks exist for the collection of personal data:

3.1 Registration on our website

3.1.1 Mailing of the newsletter
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need your e-mail address as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter.
Further data will not be collected or only collected on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively for the delivery of the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties. The processing of the data entered into the newsletter registration form takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 (1) lit. GDPR). The granted consent regarding the storage of data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter can be revoked at any time, for example via the ‘unsubscribe’ link in the newsletter. The legality of the already completed data processing operations remains unaffected by the revocation. We will save the data, lodged with us in order to subscribe to the newsletter, until cancellation from the newsletter, at which point it will be deleted. Data that has been stored with us for other purposes (such as e-mail addresses for the members area) remain unaffected.
There is no disclosure of this personal data to third parties.

3.1.2 Login to the customer portal
On our website, we offer you the option of registering to our customer portal by stating your personal data. Online registration on our website is not possible. The registration takes place in the context of the customer service.

3.1.3 Submission of application documents
In the course of your application (online or by e-mail), we collect and process various personal application data.
These include, in particular, your:
• contact information (name, address, phone number and e-mail)
• application documents (cover letter, CV, certificates or other training certificates and qualifications)
In the context of an online application via the application form, the transfer takes place exclusively via an encrypted page in accordance with the currently recognised state of the art, so that your personal data as well as your application documents are protected against manipulation and unauthorised access.
After sending, you will receive an e-mail confirming the receipt of the application documents.
The collection and processing of your personal application data is exclusively earmarked for the filling of positions within our company. Your data will be forwarded to our company’s specialist departments. A transfer of your personal application data to other companies will not take place without your prior express consent. Any further use or transfer of your application data to third parties will not take place.
A deletion of your personal application data takes place automatically three months after completing the application process. This does not apply insofar as statutory provisions preclude deletion, further storage is required for the purpose of providing evidence or you are in need of longer storage, e.g. expressly agreed for future job advertisements. If a contract of employment is concluded with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of the employment relationship in compliance with the legal requirements.

3.2 Contact fields on our website

3.2.1 Making contact via the contact form
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored in order to process the request and in case of follow-up questions. We will not share this information without your consent.
The processing of the data entered into the contact form therefore takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 (1) lit. GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal message by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation. The information you provide in the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or delete the purpose for data storage (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – especially retention periods – remain unaffected. Such personally identifiable information you voluntarily submit to us will be stored for the purposes of processing your request or contacting the person in question.

There is no disclosure of this personal data to third parties.

4. What are cookies used for?

Websites partly use so-called cookies. Cookies don’t harm your computer and don’t contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and by your browser. Most of the cookies we use are called ‘session cookies’. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser the next time you visit. Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions that you wish to use (e.g. shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of its services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysing your surfing behaviour) are stored, they will be treated separately in this privacy statement.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally exclude and enable the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

Manage cookies
You have the option of controlling the acceptance of cookies yourself and possibly prevent them by configuring your browser. We point out that changes to the settings always only affect the respective browser. If you use different browsers or change the terminal, the settings must be made again. In addition, you can delete cookies from your storage medium at any time.

The following are the most common types of cookies for your understanding:

Session cookies
While you are active on a website, a session cookie is temporarily stored in the memory of your computer in which a session ID is stored, e.g. to avoid having to log in each time you switch pages. Session cookies are deleted when logging off or lose their validity as soon as their session automatically expires.

Permanent or protocol cookies
A permanent or protocol cookie stores a file on your computer for the period of time that it expects. Through these cookies, websites remember your information and settings the next time you visit. This leads to a faster and more convenient access since, for example, you don’t have to change your language setting for our portal again. After the expiration date, the cookie will be automatically deleted when you visit the website that created it.

Third-party cookies
Third-party cookies are provided by other providers than the operator of the website. For example, they can be used to collect information for advertising, user-defined content and web statistics.

Flash cookies
Flash cookies are stored as data elements of websites on your computer when they are operated with Adobe Flash. Flash cookies have no time limit.

5. Analysis tools and advertising

Google Analytics
This website uses functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses so-called ‘cookies’. These are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow you to analyse the website’s use. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google Analytics cookies are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising.

IP anonymisation
We have activated the function IP anonymisation on this website. In this way your IP address will be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases will your complete IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for the website operator and providing other services related to website activity and internet usage. The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

Browser plugin
You can prevent the storage of cookies by a corresponding setting of your browser software; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to fully use all the features of this website. You may also prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link:

6. SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses an SSL or TLS encryption, for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as a site operator. You can detect an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from ‘http://’ to ‘https://’ and the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us cannot be read by third parties.

7. Opposition to advertising e-mails

The use of published contact information for sending unsolicited advertising and information materials is hereby rejected in the context of imprint obligations. The operators of the website expressly reserve the right to take legal steps in the event of unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as through spam e-mails.

8. Deletion, blocking and duration of storage of personal data

We process and store your personal data only for the period necessary to achieve the respective purpose of storage or as required by the various retention periods provided for by law.

After discontinuing a storage purpose or the expiry of the retention period provided for by law, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted for further processing in accordance with the statutory provisions.

9. Data protection rights of the person in question

If you have questions about your personal data, you can always contact us in writing. You have the following rights under the GDPR:

9.1 The right to information (subpoint Art. 15 GDPR)
You have the right at any time to obtain disclosure about which categories and information about your personal data are processed by us for what purpose and for how long and according to which criteria this data is stored and whether automated decision-making, including profiling, is used in this context. You also have the right to know which recipients or categories of recipients your information has been disclosed to or is yet to be disclosed to, in particular beneficiaries in third countries or international organisations. In this case you also have the right to be informed about appropriate guarantees in connection with the transmission of your personal data.

In addition to the right of appeal to the supervisory authority and the right to information about the origin of your data, you have the right to cancellation, rectification and the right to restriction or opposition to the processing of your personal data.
In all the aforementioned cases, you have the right to request a free copy of your personal data processed by us from the data processor. We are entitled to charge a reasonable administration fee for any additional copies you request or that go beyond the information rights of the person in question.

9.2 The right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR)
You have the right to demand the immediate correction of your incorrect personal data and to request the completion of incomplete personal data also by means of a supplementary declaration, taking into account the purposes of the processing. If you would like to exercise the right of rectification, you can contact our data protection officer or the controller at any time.

9.3 The right to cancellation (Art. 17 GDPR)
You have the right to request the immediate deletion of your data (‘right to
be forgotten’) especially if the storage of the data is no longer necessary, you revoke your consent to data processing, your data has been unlawfully processed or unlawfully collected and there is a legal obligation to delete under EU or national law.
However, the right to be forgotten does not apply where there is an overriding right to the freedom of expression or information, data retention is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation (e.g. retention obligations), archival purposes oppose the deletion or storage serves as the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

9.4 The right to restriction (Art. 18 GDPR)
You have the right to request the data controller to restrict the processing of your data if you dispute the accuracy of the data, the processing is unlawful, you refuse to delete your personal data and instead request a restriction of processing on the basis that there is no longer any need for the processing or you have objected to it according to Article 21 (1), as long as it is not yet certain that our legitimate reasons prevail over you.

9.5 The right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR)
You have the right to transfer your personal data, which you have provided to our company in the form of a standard format, so that you can have your personal data forwarded to another person without hindrance, if, for example, you have consented to this and the processing follows by means of an automated process.

9.6 The right to opposition (Art. 21 GDPR)
You have the right to object at any time to the collection, processing or use of your personal data for the purposes of direct advertising or market and opinion research, as well as general business data processing, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms. In addition, you cannot exercise your right to object if a legal provision requires the collection, processing or use of the data or requires it to be collected, processed or used.

9.7 Right to complain to the Data Protection Inspectorate
(Art. 77 GDPR in conjunction with § 19 FDPA)
You are granted the right to complain to the competent authority if you believe that your personal data has been infringed upon.

9.8 Right to revoke a data protection law consent (Art. 7 (3) GDPR)
You may withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal data at any time without giving reasons. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent issued to us prior to the entry into force of the EU General Data Protection Regulation.

10. Legal basis for processing

In the processing of personal data for which we obtain the consent of the person in question, Art. 6 para. 1, sentence 1 a) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

In the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract of which the person in question is a contracting party, Art. 6 section 1, sentence 1 b) (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. This regulation also covers processing operations necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1, sentence 1 c) (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the person in question do not outweigh the former interest, then Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f) (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing.
The legitimate interest of our company is in the conduct of our business as well as in the analysis, optimisation and maintenance of the security of our online website.

11. Transmission of data to third parties

We generally do not sell or lend user data. Transmission to third parties beyond the scope described in this privacy statement will only take place if necessary to complete the requested service. We transmit data only if there is a legal obligation to do so. This is the case when government agencies (such as law enforcement agencies) request written information or a court order. A transfer of personal data to so-called third countries outside the EU/EEA area does not take place.

12. Legal or contractual requirements for the provision of personal data and the possible consequences of non-provision

We point out that the provision of personal data in certain cases (such as tax regulations) is required by law or may result from contractual arrangements (such as information for/about the contracting party). For example, it may be necessary for a contract to conclude that the person in question/contracting party must provide his/her personal data in order for us to be able to process his request (e.g. order) at all. An obligation to provide personal data arises especially when concluding a contract. If no personal data is provided in this case, the contract cannot be concluded with the person in question. Prior to any provision of personal data by the person in question, the person in question may contact our data protection officer or the controller. The data protection officer or the controller then informs the person in question whether the provision of the required personal data is prescribed by law, contract or for the conclusion of the contract and whether the person in question’s concerns create an obligation to provide such personal data or what consequences non-provision of the desired data has for the person in question.

13. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling in our business relationships.
