General information about data protection

We use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) procedure on our website in conjunction with the highest encryption level supported by your browser. Normally, this is 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit technology instead. You can tell whether an individual page of our website is being transmitted in encrypted form by the closed display of the key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser.

We also use appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss or destruction or against unauthorised access by third parties. Our security procedures are continually enhanced as new technology becomes available.

Server statistics

When you visit our website, we log the following data transmitted by your browser:

  • IP address
  • Internet Service Provider of the user
  • Date and time of the request
  • Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • Content of the request (specific page)
  • Access status/HTTP status code
  • Quantity of data transmitted
  • Website from which the request originates
  • Website visited thereafter
  • Browser
  • Language and version of the browser software
  • Operating system used and its interface

The data are also stored in the logfiles of our system.

The legal basis for temporary storage of the data and the logfiles is Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to ensure that the website is delivered to the computer of the user. For this purpose, the user's IP address has to be stored for the duration of the session. This is also the basis of our legitimate interest in the process.

The logging is carried out for the internal evaluation of our services, to optimise the display of our website and to identify and prevent misuse. The stored data are not merged with other data sources or used for marketing purposes.

Our legitimate interest in the processing of data is also based on these purposes pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the intended purpose of their collection. When collecting data in order to provide the website, this will be the case when the corresponding session ends.

As regards the storage of data in logfiles, the data are deleted after seven days at the latest. Storage beyond this time is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or distorted so that it is no longer possible to match them to the requesting clients.

It is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website to collect data for providing the website and to store data in logfiles. Therefore, the user does not have the option to object.

Contact form

Our website offers a contact form that can be used for making contact electronically. If a user makes use of this form, the data entered in the input mask are transmitted to us and stored. In addition to the user's expressed request, these data include:

  • Name
  • Email address

In addition, the following further voluntary information may be entered if the user so wishes:  

  • Company
  • Phone number

Furthermore, the following data are stored when sending the message:

  • IP address
  • Date and time of entry

For the processing of the data, reference will be made to this privacy policy during the submission process so that you are fully informed. Confirmation by means of the checkbox does not constitute consent under data protection law, but only confirmation of acknowledgement.

Alternatively, it is possible to contact us via the email address provided. In this case, the personal data which the user transmits in the email are stored.

No data will be passed on to third parties in this connection. The data will be used exclusively for processing the conversation.

If necessary, the data are processed to initiate a contractual relationship or to perform a contract as defined by Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR. Furthermore, processing may take place within the scope of our legitimate interests, Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR – our legitimate interest in this case is the provision of an uncomplicated possibility of contacting us for parties interested in our services or for other visitors to our website. Our legitimate interests may also include, for example, the internal forwarding of the request to enable another employee to respond or similar organisational measures to facilitate work. This does not include surprising or escalating processing operations that are detrimental to the sender.

The data from the input mask are collected solely for the purpose of processing your enquiry and providing information about our services. Your data will not be passed on or used for other purposes.

The other personal data processed when sending the contact form are important to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the intended purpose of their collection. For personal data from the input mask of the contact form and personal data sent by email, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is terminated when it can be gathered from the circumstances that the matter in question has been finally clarified. If, in addition, storage is required or indicated due to obligations under commercial and tax law or for the possible pursuit or defence of legal claims, the data may also be stored for a longer period.

Any additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of seven days at the latest.

The user has the possibility of objecting to the processing at any time. For this purpose, it is sufficient to send an informal email to our data protection officer (address see above), stating the data required for the allocation of the contact. In this case, it is impossible to continue the conversation. All personal data which were stored in the course of making contact will be deleted in this case if there are not overriding reasons for continued storage; this shall be determined in each individual case.

Job applications

During the application process, we only collect the data that you provide to us. Only name and email address are mandatory.

When you send us your application documents by email, this is done unencrypted. We would like to point out that this unencrypted transmission is not secure under data protection law. We therefore strongly advise you to transmit your documents via the online form provided by us to enable encrypted transmission, as is also provided on our website. Alternatively, you can also use the postal service.

Once we have received your application, we will use the information you have provided to assess your suitability for the position and to carry out the application process. If necessary, suitable applications will be forwarded internally to the departmental managers in the company responsible for the respective open position. The further procedure will then be coordinated. Within the company, only those persons who need access to your data for the proper processing of our application procedure have access to your data.

Your data will be processed exclusively in data centres in the Federal Republic of Germany.

The processing of the data that you provide to us in connection with a job application is based on Section 26 of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), in particular paragraph 1. According to this regulation, it is permissible to process personal data where necessary in connection with the decision to enter into an employment relationship.

Should the data be required for legal prosecution after completion of the application procedure has been completed, data processing may be carried out based on the requirements of Art. 6 GDPR, in particular to safeguard legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. In this case, our interest lies in making or defending any claims.

If you have been awarded a job during the application procedure, the data from the applicant data system will be transferred to our HR information system.

You have the option of requesting information at any time about what data are stored by us and you may request the deletion of such data.

Use of cookies

This website uses cookies. A "cookie" is text information that the visited website places on the user's computer via the web browser, where it can later be read again by the web browser.

Cookies can be used to store information about the details you enter when visiting the website – for example, your choice of language, entries in form fields, etc. Cookies can also be used to store a unique identifier that makes your browser recognisable to the website.

We ourselves only set persistent cookies on this website, i.e. cookies that remain on your computer until the set expiry date.

In addition, third-party services may be integrated on this website, which may also place cookies on your computer. For the services integrated, see below.

The placement of cookies is based on sentence 1 of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, whereby our legitimate interest lies in the provision of a functional and user-friendly website, the response to customer requests and the optimisation of our web offering.

We use the personal data collected with the help of cookies to optimise the information and offerings on our website in your interest by remembering settings you have already made once and delivering the page according to your settings on your second visit. This includes, in particular, your data protection preferences. The user data collected through our cookies is not used to create user profiles.

The cookies set by ourselves are deleted after the expiry date set in each case.

You can disable the placement of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the internet browser used and thus permanently object to the placement of cookies. This means that you, as a user, have full control over the use of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been saved can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programmes. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the placement of cookies in the internet browser used, it may not be possible to make use of all functions of our website to their fullest extent.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"), based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the users' use of the online services may also be transmitted to a server of Google or its sister company, Google LLC, in the USA and stored there. Google uses so-called EU standard contractual clauses for the legal protection of numerous possible transfers of this kind.

Google will use this information on our behalf to analyse your use of our online services, to compile reports on the activity within the context of our online services and to provide other services to us relating to the use of our online services and internet usage. In doing so, pseudonymous usage profiles of the users can be generated from the processed data.

We only use Google Analytics with IP anonymisation activated. This means that the IP address of the user is truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the complete IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. The IP address transmitted by the user's browser will not be merged with other data of Google.

Users can prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly; users can also prevent the transmission of the data generated by the cookie and related to their use of our online services to Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link:

http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

Further information on Google's use of data as well as the setting and objection options can be found in Google's privacy policy (https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads) and the settings for the presentation of ads provided by Google (https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated). The users' personal data are deleted or anonymised after 14 days.

You give your consent to this processing by accepting the cookie banner that is displayed when you visit this website. You can revoke your consent to personal data processing at any time with effect for the future. (Refer to Consent Manager at the top of the page.)

Google AdSense

This website uses Google AdSense, an ad embedding service of Google. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Google AdSense uses so-called "cookies", i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and allow an analysis of your use of our website. Google AdSense also uses so-called web beacons (invisible graphics). These web beacons can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on these pages.

The information generated by cookies and web beacons about the use of this website (including your IP address) and delivery of advertising formats are transmitted to and stored by Google on servers. This information may be passed on by Google to Google's contracting partners. However, Google will not merge your IP address with other data stored about you. A transfer of your data to the USA cannot be ruled out. Google uses so-called EU standard contractual clauses for the legal protection of numerous possible transfers of this kind.

The storage of AdSense cookies is based on your consent, which you can give via the so-called Consent Manager at the top of the page, Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. (Refer to Consent Manager at the top of this page.)

You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; we point out, however, that in this case you may not be able to use of all the features of this website to their fullest extent.

 

DoubleClick

This website also uses the online marketing tool DoubleClick by Google. DoubleClick uses cookies to display ads that are relevant to users, to improve campaign performance reports or to prevent a user from seeing the same ads more than once. Google uses a cookie ID to record which ads are displayed in which browser and can thus prevent them from being displayed more than once. In addition, DoubleClick may use cookie IDs to record so-called conversions that are related to ad requests. This is the case, for example, when a user sees a DoubleClick ad and later uses the same browser to visit the advertiser's website and make a purchase. According to Google, DoubleClick cookies do not contain any personal information.

Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with Google's server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and, therefore, we inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of DoubleClick, Google receives the information that you have retrieved the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an ad placed by us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider will obtain and store your IP address. This may also result in a transfer of your data to the USA. Google uses so-called EU standard contractual clauses for the legal protection of numerous possible transfers of this kind.

We use DoubleClick Floodlight cookies to understand whether you perform certain actions on our website after you have seen or clicked through one of our display/ video advertisements served on Google or other platforms via DoubleClick (conversion tracking). DoubleClick uses this cookie to understand the content with which you have interacted on our websites in order to subsequently deliver some targeted ads to you.

We use DoubleClick based on your consent to this, which you can give when entering our website via the cookie banner called up, Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. Should you give us this consent, you can also revoke it at any time with effect for the future. (Refer to Consent Manager at the top of this page.)

Furthermore, you can prevent participation in this tracking process in various ways: a) by setting your browser software accordingly - in particular the suppression of third-party cookies will result in you not receiving ads from third-party providers; b) by disabling cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain www.googleadservices.com https://www.google.de/settings/ads

, this setting being deleted when you delete your cookies; c) by disabling the interest-based ads of the providers that are part of the self-regulatory campaign "About Ads" via the link www.aboutads.info/choices, this setting being deleted when you delete your cookies; d) by permanently disabling them in your Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome browsers at the link

http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their fullest extent.

Google Web Fonts

This website uses so-called Web Fonts provided by Google to ensure the uniform display of fonts. The operator company is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

If you have previously needed Web Fonts on another website and downloaded them from Google CDN, your browser will use the copy stored in the cache. If this is not the case, your browser will download Web Fonts itself. This enables Google to know that our website has been accessed via your IP address. Transfer of this data to the USA cannot be ruled out. Google uses so-called EU standard contractual clauses for the legal protection of numerous possible transfers of this kind.

Google Web Fonts is used in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our online offering. This constitutes a legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.

If your browser does not support Web Fonts, a standard font from your computer will be used.

Further information on Google Web Fonts can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in the privacy policy of Google at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

Jquery

This website uses Ajax and jQuery or jQuery UI technologies, which optimise loading speeds. In this regard, programme libraries are called up from Google servers. The CDN (Content Delivery Network) by Google is used for this purpose. If you have previously used jQuery on another website of Google CDN, your browser will fall back on the cached copy. If this is not the case, this requires a download, whereby data from your browser are sent to Google Inc. ("Google"). These data will be transferred to the USA. Google uses so-called EU standard contractual clauses for the legal protection of numerous possible transfers of this kind.

Further information about these technologies can be found at: https://developers.google.com/speed/libraries/#jquery

Online presence in social media

We maintain online presences on the platforms Facebook and Instagram to communicate with customers, interested parties and users who are active there and to be able to inform them about our services. When visiting the respective platforms, the terms and conditions and data processing guidelines of the respective operators apply.

Unless otherwise stated in our privacy policy, we process the data of users if they communicate with us via these platforms, e.g. write posts on our online presences or send us messages. This is based on our legitimate interest in being able to offer an appealing interaction option for our customers and interested parties, Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.

Furthermore, the data of visitors to our online presences are evaluated by the platform operators and the anonymised data are made available to us. The provision of online presences under our responsibility on the platforms and the receipt of statistical analyses of our visitors to these online presences are based on our legitimate interest in being able to analyse our offerings and to evaluate our market reach, Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.

The actual statistical evaluation is the responsibility of the platform operators. For more detailed information, you can contact the responsible platform operators at any time or obtain this information from their privacy statements.
