(3) Web fonts
This site uses so-called web fonts, which are supplied by various providers, to uniformly display fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.
For this purpose, the browser you use must establish a connection to the provider’s servers. This informs the provider that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of web fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning 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 Google’s Data Protection Policy at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.
Further information on Font Awesome can be found at https://fontawesome.com/license and https://fontawesome.com/privacy.
§ 4 Further functions and services of our website
In addition to the purely informational use of our website, we offer various services that you can use if you wish. For this purpose, you will generally have to provide further personal data which we use to provide the respective service and for which the aforementioned data processing principles apply.
(1) Use of the contact options
A contact form is available on our website which can be used to contact us electronically. The data entered by the user is transferred to us and stored. This includes surname, first name, telephone number and email address as mandatory fields, all other details are voluntary and go beyond what is necessary. For the processing of your data, your consent is obtained during the submission process and reference is made to this Data Protection Policy. The legal basis for the processing of data when using the contact form is Art. 6 (1)(a) GDPR.
Alternatively, there is the option of contacting us via the email address provided. The personal data of the user transferred with the email will be stored when this is used. This data is used exclusively for further conversation with you and will not be passed on to third parties. The processing of data transferred in the course of sending an email is based on a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR.
If the contact is aimed at concluding a contract, the legal basis for the processing according to Art. 6 (1)(b) GDPR must also be included with the implementation of pre-contractual measures and any subsequent processing for the fulfilment of a contract.
Personal data processed by us in the context of a general contact enquiry via the contact form or by email is only stored until the respective correspondence has ended. The conversation is terminated when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified.
Consent to the processing of your personal data can be revoked at any time. If you contact us by email, you can of course object to the storage of your personal data at any time. In this case, the conversation cannot be continued.
(2) Collection and use of personal data in the job application process
During the job application process, it is important for us to ensure the highest possible level of protection for your personal data. For this reason, all personal data collected and processed by us as part of an application are protected against unauthorised access and manipulation by technical and organisational measures.
We process personal applicant data such as name, contact details, curriculum vitae, nationality, work permit, etc. for the selection or recruitment process of interested parties with the aim of filling positions within the company.
The legal basis for the processing of your personal data lies in the establishment, implementation and termination of a contractual relationship pursuant to Art. 6 (1)(b) GDPR, in the fulfilment of a legal obligation pursuant to Art. 6(1) (c) GDPR, as well as on the basis of your consent by voluntarily providing data that is not absolutely necessary for the purpose (e.g. hobbies in the CV).
In addition, processing takes place on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6(1) (f) GDPR:
to optimise our application processes,
to ensure compliance regulations, industry standards and contractual obligations,
to assert, exercise or defend legal claims,
as well as to avoid damage and/or liability of our company by taking appropriate measures.
After the respective purpose has been achieved, your data will be erased. Before this, however, it will be stored for as long as is necessary to defend legal claims or claims in relation to AGG (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz The German General Act on Equal Treatment) accusations in accordance with Section 15 AGG for compensation and damages in the event of a breach of the prohibition of discrimination. This is generally for six months. We ask particularly interesting applicants who cannot currently be considered to give their consent to longer-term storage (usually one year); the legal basis here is Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. If accounting-relevant processing has been carried out, such as the reimbursement of travel expenses, the data required for this will be erased in compliance with the statutory retention periods, which are usually 6 or 10 years.
If the application was successful and we are allowed to welcome you to our company on the basis of a contractual agreement, we transfer the data collected during the application process to our HR files.
§ 5 Web analysis
(1) Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. („Google“). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In the event that IP anonymisation is activated on this website, however, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. 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.
The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
Opt-out cookies prevent the future collection of your data when visiting this website. To prevent collection by Universal Analytics across different devices, you must opt-out on all systems used. If you click here, the opt-out cookie will be set: Deactivating Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “anonymizeIp()”. This means that IP addresses are processed in a shortened form, thus making it impossible to relate them to a specific person. If the data collected about you is personally identifiable, this is immediately excluded and the personal data is erased immediately.
We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. The statistics obtained enable us to improve our services and make it more interesting for you as a user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.
This website also uses Google Analytics for a cross-device analysis of visitor flows, which is carried out via a user ID. You can deactivate the cross-device analysis of your usage in your customer account under “My data”, “Personal data”.
§ 6 Use of social media
(1) Integration of Google Maps
On our website, we use the services of Google Maps in the form of a link. This allows you to view an interactive map and enables you to use the map functions conveniently.
By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding sub-page of our website. In addition, the data mentioned under the point “Use of server log files” of this Policy will be transmitted. This takes place regardless of whether Google provides a user account that you are logged into or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not wish your data to be associated with your Google profile, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact Google to exercise this right.
For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by the plug-in provider, please refer to the provider’s Data Protection Policy. There you will also find further information on your rights in this regard and the setting of options to protect your privacy: http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy. Google also processes your personal data in the USA and has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.
