In order to protect your rights and to ensure the legally flawless processing of your data, we have appointed an internal data protection officer.

If we use contracted service providers for individual functions of our offer or if we want to use your data for advertising purposes, we will inform you in detail about the respective processes below. In doing so, we will also state the defined criteria for the storage period.

2. Storage period

Unless a more specific storage period has been specified within this privacy policy, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for data processing no longer applies. If you assert a legitimate request for deletion or revoke your consent to data processing, your data will be deleted unless we have other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g. retention periods under tax or commercial law); in the latter case, the data will be deleted once these reasons no longer apply.

3. General information on the legal basis of the data processing on this website

If we require your consent and you have consented to the data processing, we process your personal data on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO or Art. 9 (2) lit. a DSGVO, if special categories of data are processed according to Art. 9 (1) DSGVO. In the case of explicit consent to the transfer of personal data to third countries, data processing is also based on Art. 49 (1) a DSGVO. If you have consented to the storage of cookies or to the access to information in your terminal device (e.g. via device fingerprinting), the data processing is additionally carried out on the basis of Section 25 (1) TTDSG. The consent can be revoked at any time. If your data is required for the performance of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, we process your data on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO. Furthermore, if your data is required for the fulfillment of a legal obligation, we process it on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO. Furthermore, the data processing may be carried out on the basis of our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Information about the relevant legal basis in each individual case is provided in the following paragraphs of this privacy policy.

4. Handling of applicant data

We offer you the opportunity to apply to us (e.g. by e-mail or post). In the following, we inform you about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected as part of the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing and use of your data will be carried out in accordance with applicable data protection law and all other statutory provisions and that your data will be treated in strict confidence. If you wish to communicate with us confidentially, you can also send us your application documents in encrypted form by e-mail. For this purpose, you can, for example, use the free option of an encrypted zip file and inform us of the password by telephone. If you have any questions about this, you can contact us (contact details of the responsible office under item 3 of this data protection notice).

5. Scope and purpose of the data collection

If you send us an application, we will process your associated personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes taken during interviews, etc.) insofar as this is necessary to decide on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is Section 26 BDSG under German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO (general contract initiation) and – if you have given your consent – Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO. The consent can be revoked at any time. Your personal data will only be passed on within our company to persons involved in processing your application.

If the application is successful, the data submitted by you will be stored in our data processing systems on the basis of Section 26 BDSG and Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship.

6. data retention period

If we are unable to make you a job offer, if you reject a job offer, or if you withdraw your application, we reserve the right to retain the data you have provided on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO) for up to 6 months from the end of the application process (rejection or withdrawal of the application). Subsequently, the data will be deleted and the physical application documents destroyed. This storage serves in particular as evidence in the event of a legal dispute. If it is apparent that the data will be required after the 6-month period has expired (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), the data will not be deleted until the purpose for continued storage no longer applies.

Longer storage may also take place if you have given your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO) or if legal storage obligations prevent deletion.

7. Contact via e-mail or contact form

When you contact us by e-mail or via a contact form, the data you provide and the resulting personal data (e.g. name, inquiry, e-mail address, telephone number) will be stored by us for the purpose of processing your inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass this data on to third parties without your consent.

The data you send to us via contact requests will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular legal retention periods – remain unaffected.

The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO if your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO) or on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO) if this has been requested.

14. Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC. (for Europe: Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland – “Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. 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 and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. This means that IP addresses are processed in a shortened form, thus excluding the possibility of personal references. Insofar as the data collected about you is related to a person, this is therefore immediately excluded and the personal data is thus immediately deleted.

The legal basis for the processing of your data is your consent within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a DS-GVO. Further information on Google Analytics can be found at https://www.analytics.google.com and http://support.google.com/adsense/answer/2839090, as well as on data protection at Google in general: https://www.google. de/intl/en/policies/privacy.

This website uses Google Tag Manager, a service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, parent company: Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Tag Manager is used to manage website tags via an interface and thus other services can be integrated into our online offering.

Google only learns the IP address of the user, which is necessary to run the Google Tag Manager. The legal basis for the data processing is your consent within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO. Currently, the data transfer to the USA that may take place is based on the standard contractual clauses (SCCs) provided by Google.

16. Use of Google Ads

Our website uses services of the Google Marketing Platform (formerly “Google Doubleclick”). These services use cookies to serve ads that are relevant to users, to improve campaign performance reports, or to prevent a user from being served ads multiple times.

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, Google can use cookie IDs to record so-called conversions, i.e. whether a user sees an ad and later calls up the advertiser’s website and purchases something there. According to Google, these cookies do not contain any personal information.

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 service. According to Google, by integrating these services, Google receives the information that you have called up the relevant part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your user account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is a possibility that the provider learns your IP address and stores it.

In addition, cookies allow us to understand whether you perform certain actions on our website after you have accessed or clicked on one of our ads on Google or on another platform (conversion tracking). Google uses this cookie to understand the content you have interacted with on our websites in order to later send you targeted advertising.

You can prevent the tracking process by making the appropriate setting in your browser software (e.g. third-party cookies disabled), disable cookies for conversion tracking by blocking cookies from the domain www.googleadservices.com in your browser settings, regarding interest-based ads from the providers that are part of the self-regulatory campaign “About Ads” via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices or at the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this offer to their full extent.

For more information on the Google Marketing Platform, please visit https://marketingplatform.google.com/. You can also find further information at the Net-work Advertising Initiative (NAI) at http://www.networkadvertising.org/.

The legal basis for data processing is your consent within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) a DSGVO. Currently, any data transfer to the USA that may take place is based on the standard contractual clauses (SCCs) provided by Google. We reserve the right to deactivate Google Ads should a judicial or regulatory decision identify these SCCs as not being in compliance with data protection.


17. Social Media-Content

If you have given us your consent in the consent tool displayed when you start the website, we will use the social media services you have approved in order to be able to show you content from the corresponding social media on our website. In this course, personal data will then also be passed on to these social media providers. Consent constitutes a legal ground within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO as well as permission pursuant to Section 25 (1) TTDSG.

Yes after your consent in the Consent Tool, we also use plug-ins from social media providers that allow you to quickly switch to them. In doing so, we use the so-called two-click solution. This means that just because you have visited our site, no personal data is passed on to the providers of the plug-ins. This only happens after you have activated the plug-in by clicking on it.

Please inform yourself about the exact circumstances of the processing of your personal data in the privacy statements of the providers.
