3. DATA COLLECTION ON OUR WEBSITE IN DETAIL
Our website partly uses so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
On the one hand we use so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them yourself. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit us. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies the functionality of this website may be limited.
Cookies that are required for the electronic communication process, 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 his services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies for the analysis of your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are integrated separately in this data protection declaration.
SERVER LOG FILES
The provider of the website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically sends to us when you visit the website. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Date and time of the server request
- IP address
These files are not merged with other data sources.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b, f GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or a pre-contractual measure, as well as for the protection of legitimate interests. The legitimate interest here lies in the technically faultless and optimised provision of our services for you.
ENQUIRIES BY E-MAIL, TELEPHONE, FAX
If you contact us directly by e-mail, telephone or fax, your inquiry including all personal data (name, contact data, inquiry itself) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We will not pass on this data without your consent.
The processing is based on the basis of Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. b GDPR in so far as your enquiry is connected with the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, processing is based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR and/or on our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f. GDPR, as we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of the inquiries addressed to us. You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal notification by e-mail to us is sufficient for this purpose. Your revocation does not affect the lawfulness of the processing that has taken place on the basis of the consent until the revocation.
The data you have sent us by contact request will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or for the purpose for which it was stored ceases to apply, e.g. due to the completed processing of your request. Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
If you apply to us via our website or send us applications in electronic form, we will store the data you provide (e.g. e-mail address, name, address, telephone number). In the case of an application via our website, we require the entry of certain personal data which is necessary for the application process (first and last name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, if applicable how you became aware of us). In addition, you have the possibility to upload meaningful documents which may contain further personal data (e.g. date of birth).
Your application documents will only be made available to authorized employees who are directly involved in the application process.
The purpose of the data processing is the necessary decision on the establishment of an employment relationship (Art. 88 paragraph 1 GDPR in conjunction with § 26 BDSG).
Your data will be stored by us until the application procedure is completed. If your application is rejected, your application documents will be stored with us for a further 6 months due to the possibility of legal action in accordance with the General Equal Treatment Act (§ 15 Paragraph 4 AGG) and then deleted or anonymised. In the event of anonymisation, the data is then only available to us as so-called metadata without direct personal reference for statistical analysis (e.g. proportion of women or men, number of applications in a specific period of time, etc.).
In addition, your consent allows us to add you to our “talent pool” in order to find any other interesting positions for you. This also applies to the application for a training or internship position.
If an employment relationship with us arises following your application, we will store the personal data collected during the application process at least for the duration of the employment relationship.
The data transmitted in the context of your application will be transferred using TLS encryption and stored in a database. This database is operated by Personio GmbH, which offers personnel administration and applicant management software. In this context Personio GmbH is our contract processor according to Art. 28 GDPR. The basis for the processing is a contract between us as the responsible authority and Personio GmbH, which acts on our behalf.

REGISTRATION AS A USER
If you wish to register as a user on our website, the personal data you provide (e-mail address) will be processed and stored. The processing is carried out for the purpose of opening a user account. The legal basis for the processing is your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit a DSGVO. We do not pass on this data without your consent. You can revoke this consent at any time.

DOWNLOAD OF PROVIDED DOCUMENTS
On our website you will also find an area which, after entering individual personal data in the contact form, unlocks documents and makes them available for download.
If you would like to access the documents made available there, you must enter your first and last name, e-mail address and employer in particular in the contact form. The legal basis for the processing is your consent pursuant to Art. Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR.
The purpose of this processing is the user-optimized provision of downloadable content by adapting the content to the respective interests.
In addition to the data on the provision of documents, we collect pseudonymized data on your user behavior by means of a cookie. This is done in order to be able to determine the number of views and downloads of our content, in particular how often you used our content free of charge. This data is not merged with other user data. You can object to this pseudonymized profiling at any time.
You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. Your revocation does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.
