Collection and use of your data
The scope and type of data collection depends on whether you are visiting our internet presence to find information or are making use of our services. In the event that we use third party service providers for individual functions we provide, we will inform you in detail in regards to the relevant process. We will also provide information on our criteria for determining how long we keep your saved data. Provision of your data to other third parties will otherwise only take place when required by law.
For informational use of our websites, we collect only that personal data that is automatically provided to us by your internet browser, such as:
- Date and time of the request
- Time zone different to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
- Request contents (specific page)
- The amount of data transferred and access status in each case (file transferred, file not found etc.)
- Website from which the request was made
- Browser type / version / language
- Operating system and its interface
- Language and version of browser software
The data listed above is required for technical reasons, so that we can show you our website and guarantee stability and security.
On various subpages, you can get in touch with us using the contact form Contact. The information collected using the contact form (title, surname, first name, company, telephone number, street, e-mail address, postcode, location, country), and your message, will be used solely for the purpose of answering your question. Once we are done processing your request, the information will be deleted. Data will also be saved as part of the legally required archiving of e-mail communication (e-mails are business and commerce letters), for a maximum of 10 years after being sent. However, we will save your information in the event that you sign a contract with us after getting in touch. In this case, data processing is required to fulfil the contract or to implement measures required in advance of contractual duties. Your data will be deleted when your saved data is no longer required to fulfil the contract, unless legal archiving duties require us to save it for longer.
Provision of your data to other third parties will only take place when required by law.
Contacting our employees via e-mail
You can get in touch with us by sending us an e-mail. E-mails can be sent, for example, to firstname.lastname@example.org or to our employee’s personalised e-mail addresses. The data we receive when you send us an e-mail (for example: your name, your e-mail address and your message itself) is used solely for the purpose of processing your request. Once we are done processing your request, the information will be deleted. Data will also be saved as part of the legally required archiving of e-mail communication (e-mails are business and commerce letters), for a maximum of 10 years after being sent. However, we will save your information in the event that you sign a contract with us after getting in touch. In this case, data processing is required to fulfil the contract or to implement measures required in advance of contractual duties. Your data will be deleted when your saved data is no longer required to fulfil the contract, unless legal archiving duties require us to save it for longer. Provision of your data to other third parties will only take place when required by law. When communicating by e-mail, we cannot guarantee complete data security. We thus recommend that you send information you wish to keep confidential by post.
Applications / job offers / applicant pool
We collect and store personal data from applicants for the purpose of conducting an application process for advertised positions and for unsolicited applications.
The provision of this application data is voluntary. We process the data provided for the purpose of handling the application procedure. The legal basis for this is Article 88 (1) DSGVO in conjunction with Section 26 (1) BDSG.
All data from your application will be collected and processed in order to select the suitable applicant for the advertised position with us. You yourself determine the data processed by us, as you initiate the data transfer yourself. For the purpose of applicant selection, the respective application will also be forwarded to superiors of the respective department.
If the application process is positive and results in the conclusion of an employment contract with the applicant, the data provided by the applicant will be processed for the purpose of handling the employment relationship. The legal basis for this is Article 88 (1) DSGVO in conjunction with Section 26 (1) BDSG.
We will only process special categories of personal data if you have submitted them to us so that we can consider your application as it stands or if there is a legal obligation to do so. This information will not be considered in the application process unless there is a legal obligation to do so. The legal basis for this is Art. 9 (2) lit. b and e DSGVO.
In the event that an employment relationship between you and us is established, we may further process the data provided by you. The processing is then carried out for the implementation or termination of the employment relationship. Hiring without your applicant data is not possible. The legal basis for this is Article 88 (1) DSGVO in conjunction with Section 26 (1) BDSG.
If the application process ends without the conclusion of an employment contract with the applicant, the data provided by the applicant will be deleted no later than 6 months after notification of the decision. The reason for this is our other legitimate interests, e.g. for documenting the obligation to provide proof and evidence for possible proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act.
If the applicant wishes to be considered for other potential positions within the company despite rejection in the application process, we will obtain appropriate consent for further processing of the data from the applicant for this purpose. The applicant’s data provided will be deleted after a period of one year from the date on which consent was granted, unless the applicant revokes his or her consent at an earlier point in time. The same applies to unsolicited applications.
The revocation is to be sent to the contact addresses email@example.com mentioned in the data protection declaration.

Integration of Google Maps
We use a Google Maps link on our website. Google Maps
is a service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View,
California 94043, USA. Through this service, we can show interactive maps and
allow the user to comfortably use the map function. This function is blocked by
default. Only when you actively use the function, it is activated. This
constitutes electronic consent according to Art. 7 DSGVO.
If you use the map function, Google receives the data
mentioned under “Informational use”. This takes place regardless of
whether you have a Google user account or not. If you have a Google user
account and are logged in at the time of visiting our website, this data will
be directly assigned to your Google user account.
If you do not wish the data to be merged with your
Google user account, you must log out of your Google user account before using
the map function. Google uses this data to create usage profiles, but also for
advertising purposes, market research or to tailor its websites to meet your
needs. You have the option to object to the creation of such usage profiles.
However, you must address this objection directly to Google.
The legal basis for the processing of this data is,
according to Art. 6 para. 1, p. 1 lit. f DSGVO, our legitimate interest in the
findability of our company.
Google complies with the data protection requirements
of the European Economic Area and Switzerland with regard to the collection,
use, transfer, storage and other processing of personal data from the European
Economic Area, the United Kingdom and Switzerland. All transfers of personal
data to a third country or an international organization are subject to
appropriate safeguards as described in Article 46 of the GDPR. The legal basis
for this is the necessity for the performance of a contract with Google pursuant
to Art. 6 para. 1, p. 1 lit. b i. V. m. Art. 46 para. 2 lit. c DSGVO.
