Our Internet pages use so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files and do not cause any damage to your device. They are stored either temporarily on your device for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies). Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them yourself or an automatic solution is provided by your web browser.
In some cases, cookies from third-party companies may also be stored on your device when you enter our site (third-party cookies). These enable us or you to use certain services of the third-party company (e.B. cookies for processing payment services).
Cookies have different functions. Numerous cookies are technically necessary because certain website functions would not work without them (e.B. the shopping cart function or the display of videos). Other cookies are used to evaluate user behavior or to display advertising.
Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions desired by you (e.B. shopping cart function) 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 optimized provision of its services. If a corresponding consent has been requested (e.B. consent to the storage of cookies), the processing takes place exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.
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. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.
Insofar as cookies are used by third-party companies or for analysis purposes, we will inform you separately about this in the context of this data protection declaration and, if necessary, request your consent.
- Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
This data is not merged with other data sources.
This data is collected on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimization of his website – for this purpose, the server log files must be recorded.
- Request by e-mail, telephone or fax
If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your request, including all resulting personal data (name, request), will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
The processing of this data takes place on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit.b GDPR, if your request is related to the fulfillment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR) and/or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR), as we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of the inquiries addressed to us.
The data you send to us via contact requests will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.B. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.
- Google Analytics
This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and that enable an analysis of your use of the website. 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.
The storage of Google Analytics cookies and the use of this analysis tool are based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising. If a corresponding consent has been requested (e.B. consent to the storage of cookies), the processing takes place exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. As a result, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before transmission to the USA. 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 to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related 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.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, 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 full extent. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent the collection of your data on future visits to this website: Disable Google Analytics
We have concluded a contract with Google for order processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
This website uses the "demographic characteristics" function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be created that contain statements about the age, gender and interests of the site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google as well as from visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as described in the section "Objection to data collection".
User and event level data stored by Google that is linked to cookies, user IDs (e.B. User ID) or advertising IDs (e.B. DoubleClick cookies, Android advertising ID) will be anonymized or deleted after 14 months. Details can be found under the following link: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7667196?hl=de
- Google Analytics Remarketing
This website uses the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing in conjunction with the cross-device functions of Google Ads and Google DoubleClick. The provider is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
This feature makes it possible to link the advertising target groups created with Google Analytics Remarketing with the cross-device functions of Google Ads and Google DoubleClick. In this way, interest-based, personalized advertising messages that have been adapted to you depending on your previous usage and surfing behavior on one device (e.B. mobile phone) can also be displayed on another of your devices (e.B. tablet or PC).
If you have given your consent, Google will link your web and app browsing history to your Google Account for this purpose. In this way, the same personalized advertising messages can be displayed on every device on which you log in with your Google Account.
To support this feature, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated IDs from users, which are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create audiences for cross-device ad advertising.
You can permanently object to cross-device remarketing/targeting by disabling personalized advertising; please follow this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.
The summary of the collected data in your Google Account takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent, which you can give or revoke with Google (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). In the case of data collection processes that are not merged into your Google Account (e.B. because you do not have a Google Account or have objected to the merger), the collection of the data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest arises from the fact that the website operator has an interest in the anonymous analysis of website visitors for advertising purposes.
- Google Web Fonts
This site uses so-called web fonts, which are provided by Google, for the uniform presentation of 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 are using must connect to Google's servers. As a result, Google becomes aware that this website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google WebFonts is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the uniform presentation of the typeface on its website. If a corresponding consent has been requested (e.B. consent to the storage of cookies), the processing takes place exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font will be used by your computer.
We collect and process personal information that an applicant provides via an online recruitment platform or by email/mail directly to us. Such personal information may include data on the applicant (name, address, contact information), the applicant’s qualification and professional background as well as other data provided by the applicant (“Applicants’ Data”). We will use Applicants’ Data for purposes of an application process, a respective resulting working (or similar) contract and/or for processing in our talent pool.
Basis for the processing of Applicants’ Data for the purpose of concluding or performing contracts is Art. 88 GDPR, § 26 BDSG or Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR. For the duration of an application process and for evidentiary purposes until deletion processing of Applicants’ Data may also be based on our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Further, we may process Applicants’ Data based on Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR if required by law or for the purpose of defending against legal claims according to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. In addition, any processing of Applicants’ Data may be based on an applicant’s consent according to Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR.
Applicants’ Data will be deleted within six months after a removal, withdrawal, or rejection of an applicant in a recruiting process. If an applicant is hired, Applicants’ Data will be electronically stored for approximately twelve months and further stored in printed form in the applicant’s personal file for the duration of the employment relationship based on Art. 88 GDPR, § 26 BDSG and thereafter.
If an applicant grants the respective consent, we will file Applicants’ Data in our talent pool (usually for up to 24-month periods) based on Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. Applicants may revoke their consent at any time by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or through the means provided by our respective recruiting platform – upon revocation, the Applicants’ Data will be deleted within one month. Such a revocation of consent during an ongoing application process automatically constitutes a withdrawal of an application.
We may forward Applicants’ Data to a subsidiary or to another company based on the applicant’s prior consent according to Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. Applicants’ Data might also be processed by third party service providers in accordance with the GDPR. In such cases we remain responsible for Applicants’ Data and ensure the processing by third party providers by way of data processing agreements according to Art. 28 GDPR or other legal means. Recipients of Applicants’ Data in such cases are for example the respective software or recruitment service providers.
