If your personal data is processed for the purpose of direct advertising, you have the right to file an objection to the processing of personal data that concerns you for the purpose of advertising of this kind; this also applies to profiling if it is connected to direct advertising.

Right to file complaints with regulatory authorities
If the GDPR has been breached, the affected party has a right to file a complaint with a regulatory authority, particularly in the member state of their habitual residence, workplace or the location of the alleged violation.

Right to data portability
You have the right to have data which we process based on your consent or in fulfilment of a contract automatically delivered to yourself or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you require the direct transfer of data to another responsible party, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.
SSL and TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you sent to us as the site operators. Encrypted connections can be recognised by the fact that the browser address line will switch from “http://” to “https://”and a lock icon will appear in the browser address line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you send to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blocking, deletion and correction
As permitted by law, you have the right to be provided at any time with information free of charge about any of your personal data that is stored as well as its origin, the recipient and the purpose for which it has been processed. You also have the right to have this data corrected, blocked or deleted. You can contact us at any time using the address given in our legal notice if you have further questions on the topic of personal data.
Right to restrict data processing
You have the right to demand that the processing of your personal data is restricted. You can contact us at any time using the address given in the legal notice. You have the right to restrict data processing in the following cases:
- If you the contest the accuracy of personal data concerning you that we have stored, we generally need some time to review the matter. You have the right to demand that the processing of your personal data is restricted for the duration of this review.
- If your personal data are/were processed unlawfully, you can demand that data processing is restricted rather than deletion of your data.
- If we no longer require your personal data but you require it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to demand that data processing is restricted rather than deletion of your personal data.
- If you have filed an objection in line with Art. 21 (1) GDPR, your interests and our interests must be compared. Until the matter of whose interests take precedence is decided, you have the right to demand that the processing of your personal data is restricted.
If you have limited the processing of your personal data, this data may only be processed with your consent or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of other natural or legal persons or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or one of the member states (apart from storing the data).
3. Data collection on our website
Most of the cookies we use are what are known as session cookies. They are automatically deleted after you leave our site. Other cookies are stored on your terminal until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser the next time you visit our site.
You can set your browser to inform you about any cookies being set and to only allow cookies in exceptional cases, to accept cookies for certain cases, to generally prevent cookies and to automatically delete cookies when the browser is closed. The function of this website may be limited if you deactivate the cookies.
Server log files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in server log files. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
- IP address
These data will not be combined with data from other sources.
The basis for collecting this data is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a justified interest in optimising their website and presenting it without technical faults. The server log files must be recorded for this purpose.
If you send us enquiries using the contact form, we will save your input from the request form and the contact data you have entered there for the purpose of processing your request and in case you have any connected questions. We will not pass on these data without your consent.
Therefore, data entered in the contact form are processed exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You may revoke this consent at any time with future effect. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.
The data that you entered in the contact form remain with us until you request its deletion, withdraw your consent to its storage or the purpose of storing the data ceases to exist (e.g. once we have finished processing your enquiry). Mandatory legal provisions – particularly retention periods – remain unaffected.
Enquiries made by email, telephone or fax
If you contact us via email, telephone or fax, your enquiry and all connected personal data (name, enquiry) will be saved and processed by us for the purpose of processing your issue. We will not pass on these data without your consent.
These data are processed on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR if your enquiry is connected to the fulfilment of a contract or if it is required in order to perform pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR) and/or on our justified interests (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR) as we have a justified interest in the effective processing of enquiries directed to us.
The data transferred to us in enquiries remains with us until you request its deletion, withdraw your consent to its storage or the purpose of storing the data ceases to exist (e.g. once we have finished processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions – particularly legal retention periods – remain unaffected.
4. Plugins and tools
Google web fonts
This site uses web fonts provided by Google to ensure that all fonts are presented in a uniform manner. Google Fonts are installed locally. No connection is made to Google servers during the process.
This site uses the Google Maps map service via an API. It is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
To use Google Maps, it is necessary to save your IP address. The information is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transfer.
The use of Google Maps is in the interest of making our website appealing and to facilitate the location of places specified by us on the website. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
This website is hosted by an external service provider (hoster). Any personal data collected on this website are stored on the hoster’s servers. These are mainly IP addresses, contact enquiries, meta and communication data, contract details, contact details, names, site access details and other data generated via a website.
The hoster is used for the purpose of contractual performance towards our potential and existing customers (GDPR Article 6 (1) point b) and in the interest of the secure, fast and efficient provision of our website by a professional service provider (GDPR Article 6 (1) point f).
Our hoster will only process your data to the extent that is required for the fulfilment of its performance obligations in relation to these data and shall comply with our instructions in respect of these data.
Conclusion of a contract processing agreement
In order to warrant processing in compliance with data protection regulations, we have concluded a contract processing agreement with our hoster.
6. Analysis tool and advertising
This website uses the Google Analytics web analysis service, provided by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Republic of Ireland.
Google Analytics uses so-called cookies. These are text files that are saved to your computer and which permit an analysis of site use. The information generated by the cookies on your use of this website, including your IP address, are generally transmitted to a server belonging to Google in the USA, where the information is then stored.
The storage of Google Analytics cookies and the use of this analysis tool are based on GDPR Article 6 (1) point f. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising. If the relevant consent has been requested (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), processing takes place exclusively on the basis of GDPR Article 6 (1) point a, and consent may be revoked at any time.
We have enabled the IP anonymisation function for this website. This means that, within Member States of the European Union and European Economic Area, your IP address is truncated by Google before being sent to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will your full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information to assess your use of the website on the webmaster’s behalf to compile reports regarding website activities and provide other services associated with the use of the website and the Internet for the webmaster. Google will not associate your browser’s IP address, transmitted for Google Analytics purposes, with any other data held by Google.
You can prevent cookies from being stored by using a corresponding setting in your browser software; however, be advised that you may not be able to make full use of all the website’s functions in such a case. Furthermore, if you wish to prevent the collection of data generated by cookies and concerning your site use (incl. your IP address) and if you wish to opt out of such data being sent to and processed by Google, you can download and install a browser plug-in from the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
Objection to the collection of data
To prevent data collection by Google Analytics, click on the link below. This sets an opt-out cookie, which prevents the collection of your data when you visit our website in the future: Disable Google Analytics.
We have concluded a contract processing agreement with Google, and we fully apply the strict specifications of the German data protection authorities for the use of Google Analytics.
Demographics under Google Analytics
This website uses the demographics function of Google Analytics, which makes it possible to generate reports showing details of site visitors’ ages, genders and interests. These data relate to interest-related Google advertising as well as visitor data of third-party suppliers. They do not permit the tracking of individual persons. However, you can disable this function via the display settings in your Google account at any time, or you can stop the recording of your data by Google Analytics, as detailed under “Objection to the collection of data”.
Duration of storage
Any user data and event-specific data saved by Google and associated with cookies, user IDs or advertising IDs (e.g. DoubleClick cookies or Android advertising IDs) are anonymised or erased after 14 months. Details are available via the following link: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7667196?hl=en
If you wish to subscribe to the newsletter offered on the website, you need to provide your email address. We also need information that permits us to check whether you are the owner of that email address and you agree to the receipt of our newsletter. No other data will be collected, or, if they are, they will only be collected on a voluntary basis We use such data exclusively for the sending of the requested information, and we do not share them with third parties.
Therefore, data entered in the newsletter subscription form are processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (GDPR Art. 6 (1) point a). You can revoke consent to the storage of your data and email address as well as their use for the newsletter subscription at any time, e.g. via the “Unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. Revocation of consent, however, does not affect the lawfulness of data processing up until the date of revocation.
The data we save for you for the purpose of your newsletter subscription are stored by us until you notify either us or the newsletter service provider of your intention to unsubscribe, and your data will be deleted from the distribution list as soon as you have unsubscribed. This does not affect any data we have stored for you for other purposes.
Once you have been removed from the newsletter distribution list, your email address may be saved to a blacklist either by ourselves or by the newsletter service provider in order to prevent sending you future mailings. Such blacklist data will not be used for any other purposes, and neither will they be merged with other data. This is both in your interest and in our interests to ensure compliance with statutory provisions on the sending of newsletters (legitimate interest under GDPR Article 6 (1) point f). Blacklisting is not limited in time. You may object to storage if our legitimate interest is overridden by your own interests.
8. In-house services
Use of applicants’ data
We give you the option of applying to us for jobs (e.g. by email, post or via an online application form). Below, you will find information about the extent, scope and use of your personal data collected in an application process. Please be assured that your data will be collected, processed and used in compliance with applicable data protection laws and all other legal provisions and that they will be treated with strict confidentiality.
Scope and purpose of data collection
When you send us an application, we will process your personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, interview notes, etc.) to the extent that they are required for a decision regarding possible employment. The legal basis is the new version of the German Data Protection Act (BDSG-neu) section 26 (preparation of an employment relationship), GDPR Article 6 (1) point b (general preparation of contract) and – if you have given your consent – GDPR Article 6 (1) point a. This consent can be revoked at any time. Your personal data will be shared exclusively with persons within our company who process your application.
If your application is successful, your submitted data will be stored by us in our data-processing systems, based on the new version of the German Data Protection Act (BDSG-neu) section 26 and GDPR Article 6 (1) point b, for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship.
Retention period for data
If we are not in a position to offer you a job, if you refuse a job or if you withdraw your application, we reserve the right to retain the data you sent us. We will do so on the basis of our legitimate interest (GDPR Article 6 (1) point f) for up to six months from the conclusion of the application procedure (either rejection or withdrawal of application). After this period, your data will be erased and your physical application documents will be destroyed. Storage primarily serves the purpose of providing evidence in the event of a legal dispute. If it is obvious that the data are required after the expiry of the six-month retention period (e.g. because a legal dispute is either likely or pending), erasure will be postponed until they are no longer needed.
Data may be stored for a longer period if you have given your consent (GDPR Article 6 (1) point a) or if erasure is prevented by statutory retention duties.
