Thank you for visiting our website. In the following, we would like to inform you about the handling of your data in accordance with Art. 13 General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO).
The office named in the imprint is charged for the data collection and processing described below.
When you visit our websites, so-called usage data is temporarily stored on our web server as a log for statistical purposes in order to improve the quality of our websites. This data set consists of
- the name and address of the requested content,
- the date and time of the query,
- the amount of data transferred,
- the access status (content transferred, content not found),
- the description of the web browser and operating system used,
- the referral link, which indicates from which page you have reached ours,
- the IP address of the requesting computer, which is shortened so that a personal reference can no longer be established.
The aforementioned log data is only stored anonymously.
Data transmission to third parties
We transfer your data to service providers who support us in the operation of our websites and the associated processes as part of commissioned processing pursuant to Art. 28 DSGVO. Our service providers are strictly bound by instructions and contractually committed to us accordingly. These can be, for example, service providers for hosting or web analysis.
Data transfer to third countries
In some cases, we transfer personal data to a third country outside the EU. In each case, we have ensured an appropriate level of data protection: In the case of Google and Facebook (USA), an adequate level of data protection follows from the corresponding participation in the Privacy Shield agreement (Art. 45 (1) GDPR).
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your terminal device and can be read. A distinction is made between session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and permanent cookies, which are stored beyond the individual session.
In some cases, these cookies only contain information on certain settings and are not personally identifiable. They may also be necessary to enable user navigation, security and implementation of the site.
We use these cookies on the basis of Art. 6 par.. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
Furthermore, we use additional cookies for analysis: Google Analytics.
We use the web analysis tool "Google Analytics" to design our website according to your needs. Google Analytics creates usage profiles based on pseudonyms. For this purpose, permanent cookies are stored on your terminal device and read by us. In this way, we are able to recognise returning visitors and count them as such.
Data processing is based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 par. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO, provided you have given your consent via our banner.
You can revoke your consent at any time in our cookie banner. You can find it at the bottom of the website under Legal.
In the context of Google Analytics, Google supports us as a processor in accordance with Art. 28 DSGVO. The data processing may also take place outside the EU or the EEA. With regard to Google, an adequate level of data protection can be assumed pursuant to Art. 45, par. 1 GDPR by participating in the Privacy Shield agreement and pursuant to Art. 46, par. 2 lit. c GDPR by using EU standard contractual clauses.
In order to protect your data from unwanted access as comprehensively as possible, we take technical and organisational measures. We use an encryption process on our pages. Your details are transferred from your computer to our server and vice versa via the Internet using TLS encryption. You can recognise this by the fact that the lock symbol is closed in the status bar of your browser and the address line begins with https://.
You have the possibility to contact us via our contact form. To use our contact form, we first require the data marked as mandatory from you.
We use this data on the basis of Art. 6 par. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO to answer your enquiry.
In addition, you can decide for yourself whether you would like to provide us with further details. This information is provided voluntarily and is not mandatory to get in touch with us. We process your voluntary information on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6 par. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO.
Your data will only be processed to respond to your request. We will delete your data if it is no longer required and there are no legal retention obligations to the contrary.
Insofar as your data transmitted via the contact form is processed on the basis of Art. 6 par. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO, you may object to the processing at any time. In addition, you can revoke your consent to the processing of voluntary information at any time. For this purpose, please contact the e-mail address given in the Disclaimer.
We enable you to use social plugins. For data protection reasons, however, we only integrate the social plugins we use in deactivated form. When you access our websites, no data is therefore transmitted to social media services.
However, you have the option of activating and using the social plugins integrated on our websites. For this purpose, we use a solution thanks to which all data and functions required to display the social plugin are being provided by our web server in a first step. Just when you decide to activate the relevant social plugin and click on the corresponding preview image or symbol, your browser will establish a connection to the servers of the operator of the respective social media service in a second step.
When you activate a plugin, the social media service receives your IP address and, among other things, notices about your visit to our websites. This is done regardless of whether you have an account with the respective social media service. If you are logged in, the data can be directly assigned to your social media profile.
In general, we have no influence on whether and to what extent the respective social media service processes personal data after activation. However, it is likely that the social media service will create usage profiles from your data and use them for the purpose of personalised advertising. In addition, your data will be used to inform other users of the social media service about your activities on our websites.
The embedding is based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 par. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO, provided that you have given your consent by clicking on the preview image.
If you no longer wish your personal data to be processed by the activated social plugins, you can prevent future processing by no longer clicking on the preview image or icon of the respective social plugin.
We embed videos on our websites that are not stored on our servers.
This provides the third-party provider (YouTube / Google (USA)) with the information that you have accessed our site as well as the usage data technically required in this context. We have no influence on the further data processing by the third-party provider.
Integration of other technical third-party content and functions
We use the technical functions and content of third-party providers mentioned below to display our websites.
By calling up our pages, the content is reloaded from the third-party provider who provides these functions and content. This provides the third-party provider with the information that you have accessed our site as well as the usage data technically required in this context.
We have no influence on the further data processing by the third-party provider.
The embedding is based on Art. 6 par. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO and reflects the wish of making our site as appealing and informative as possible.
We embed map services on our websites that are not stored on our servers.
This provides the third-party provider with the information that you have accessed our site as well as the usage data technically required in this context. We have no influence on the further data processing by the third-party provider.
Data required for the purposes of the employment relationship:
When you apply, we process the data we require as part of the application process. This may include contact details, all data related to the application (CV, certificates, qualifications, answers to questions, etc.) and, if applicable, bank details (to reimburse travel expenses). The legal basis for this results from Section 26 of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG - Bundesdatenschutzgesetz).
Data deletion of applicant data:
If there is no legal retention period, the data will be deleted as soon as storage is no longer necessary or the legitimate interest in storage has expired. If no recruitment takes place, the deletion usually takes place no later than three months after completion of the application procedure.
In single cases, individual data may be stored for a longer period of time (e.g. travel expense report). The duration of storage then depends on the statutory retention obligations, e.g. from the German Fiscal Code (6 years) or the German Commercial Code (10 years).
If you have not been recruited but your application is still of interest to us, we will ask you if we may keep your application on file for future vacancies.
Confidential treatment of your data:
We will of course treat your data confidentially and will not pass it on to third parties. If necessary, we use service providers who are strictly bound by instructions, who support us e.g. in the areas of IT or the filing and destruction of documents and with whom separate contracts for commissioned processing have been concluded.
