This Data Privacy Notice applies to the present internet presence, operated by us (hereinafter also referred to as "Website").

Should our internet presence also facilitate access to the offers of other providers ("Third Party Offers"), our Data Privacy Notice shall not apply to such Third Party Offers. In this case we are also not responsible for the processing of your personal information in relation to such Third Party Offers within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 7 DSGVO.

B. Nature and Volume of Data Processing
1. Processing of Access Data
You may visit our Website without providing any personal information. We merely store the following access data in server log files:
Host name of accessing computer,
IP address (anonymised),
date and time of Website retrievals,
type of browser,
operating system,
Website previously visited.

Such data shall be analysed exclusively to ensure a proper operation of the Website.

The IP address can be personal data due to the fact that, under certain circumstances and with information provided by the respective internet provider, it is possible to identify the specific individual that has used the Internet access. However, the IP address is processed and stored solely in anonymised form, without reference to a specific individual.

We provide the above data to the web agency, acting as processor for us and rendering services in the field of web analysis to us.

2. Data Processing to process your Requests
We collect such personal data you have deliberately provided when you established contact with us, in particular by e-mail.

Such data are processed only for the correspondence with you and for the purpose for which you have made the data available, always in the context of this communication, as for instance to process your request or to contact you at your request. In this case the processing of personal data is carried out with your consent and is permissible pursuant to Art. 6 (1a) DSGVO.

After completion of your request in full, your data are blocked for further use and erased upon expiry of any storage terms, if so required, unless you have given your express consent to further use of your data, or unless we are otherwise entitled to storage.

3. Processing of Applicant Data
In the event that you apply for a job via our Website, we shall collect the following data during this process:

Title, last name, first name
E-mail address
Further information and documents such as cover letter, curriculum vitae, certificates, etc. which you have provided to us in context of your application

Your data will only be used for the decision on whether to establish an employment relationship with you and is internally forwarded to the responsible contact persons only who will decide on the staffing of the position you are interested in. If you do not apply for a specific vacancy (unsolicited application), we shall use your data with regard to all positions, vacant at the moment of your application, meeting your requirements.

We are entitled to this kind of data processing pursuant to Art. 88 DSGVO in conjunction with Sec. 26 (1) Sent. 1 Federal Data Protection Act (new version) (BDSG n.F.).

We shall erase your data after completion of the application process upon expiry of a storage term of 6 months.

4. Use of Unsolicited Data
Should you provide us in other cases with your personal data without being requested (e.g. handing over a business card, forwarding by post or e-mail), we shall include these data into the address management software and store it there. This is performed on the basis of Art. 6 (1) f) DSGVO and our legitimate interest in an efficient management of business contact data as well as to ensure the data protection compliant use of such data. These data shall be erased if so requested by you, insofar as there are no statutory retention responsibilities or we are not otherwise entitled to storage.

5. Use of Cookies
We do not use so-called cookies which store and evaluate your visits to our Website for the purpose of statistical analysis of our internet offer.

6. Use of Facebook, Twitter, XING and LinkedIn plug-ins
We are not using so-called social media plug-ins of any kind, like i.e.


C. Your Rights
In relation with our processing of your personal data you have the following rights:

Revocation of Consents Granted
You may withdraw any consent you provided to us at any time with effect for the future.

You are entitled to a right to information regarding your personal data recorded. In addition to that, you are entitled to have access to the information listed in Art. 15 DSGVO.

Rectification and Erasure
Furthermore, you have the right to rectification of inaccurate and completion of incomplete personal data in accordance with Art. 16 DSGVO as well as erasure of your personal data if the conditions referred to in Art. 17 DSGVO are met.

Limitation of Processing
Under the conditions set out in Art. 18 DSGVO you may restrict the processing of your personal data.

Pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO you are entitled to exercise your right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time on grounds relating to your particular situation, insofar as such processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) e) or f) DSGVO. In the event of such an objection we shall no longer process these data, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or such processing serves the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

Surrender of Data and Data Transmission
You also have the right to receive the personal data concerning yourself, which you have provided to us, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You also have the right to have us transmit these personal data to another controller on your instruction, where technically feasible. The right to data transmission only relates to personal data, the processing of which is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a) DSGVO or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 (1) b) DSGVO, and where the processing is carried out by automated means. The right to data transmission to another controller shall be excluded if the rights and freedoms of others (e.g. personal data of third persons, our business and trade secrets or intellectual property rights) would be adversely affected.

The assertion of all rights specified above is generally free of charge for you.

Please contact our data protection officer for the exercise of your rights.

D. Obligation to provide Data
There is no legal or contractual obligation to provide personal data to us. Such data which pursuant to B. above are designated as mandatorily required for the performance of the respective service, the provision is, however, necessary if you want to make use of these services.

E. Right to Complain
Should you believe that we are not acting in proper compliance with our data privacy and data protection duties, you may as per Art. 77 DSGVO contact the data protection authorities at any time located at your usual place of residence or place of work.

F. Updating of this Data Privacy Notice
From time to time it may be necessary to update this Data Privacy Notice, for instance, if new statutory or official requirements are adopted or new offers on our internet presence are issued. We shall keep you informed about any developments on this page. We generally recommend reading this Data Privacy Notice regularly to check whether any changes were introduced. You will recognise whether any changes were made as the status at the bottom of this document indicates the last update.
