3. Provision of the website and creation of the log files

Every time our website is accessed our system automatically captures data and information about the device accessing it (e.g. computer, mobile phone, tablet, etc.).

What personal data is collected and to what extent is this processed?

  1. Information about the type of browser and version being used;
  2. the operating system of the device accessing the site;
  3. host name of the computer accessing it;
  4. the device's IP address;
  5. date and time accessed;
  6. web pages and resources (images, files, other page content) accessed on our website;
  7. web pages from which the user's system came to our website (referrer tracking);
  8. a report of whether the access was successful;
  9. volume of data transmitted

This data gets stored in our system's log files. This data does not get stored along with any specific user's personal data. There is thus no identification of individual visitors to the site.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Art. 6.1f GDPR (legitimate interest).  Our legitimate interest lies in ensuring achievement of the purpose described below.

Purpose of the data processing

The temporary (automated) storing of data is necessary for the process of a website visit in order to enable the website to be delivered. The storing and processing of the personal data is also done to maintain the compatibility of our website for wherever possible all visitors and to combat misuse and resolve faults. For this purpose it is necessary to log the technical data of the computer accessing the site in order to be able to react as soon as possible to display errors, attacks on our IT systems and/or faults in the functionality of our website. The data also serves to help us optimise our website and to generally ensure the security of our IT systems.

Storage duration

Deletion of the aforementioned technical data occurs as soon as it is no longer needed in order to ensure the compatibility of the website for all visitors and in any case no later than 3 months after our site was accessed.

Objection and deletion

Pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR you are able to object at any time to the processing of your data and demand as per Art. 17 GDPR that it be deleted. What rights you have in this regard and how you can exercise them is explained later in this data protection notice.

 

4. Special website functions

When you use certain different functions offered on our site we collect, process and store personal data. We indicate below what is done with this data:

Contact form(s)

What personal data is collected and to what extent is this processed?

The data that you have entered via the contact form's input screen.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Art. 6.1a GDPR (consent through clear affirmative action / behaviour).

Purpose of the data processing

We will use the data recorded via our contact form(s) only for processing the specific contact enquiry made via the form. Please note that in order to deal with your enquiry we may also be able to send you e-mails to the address you have stated. The purpose of this is so that you can receive a confirmation from us that your enquiry has been correctly forwarded to us. Sending this confirmation e-mail is, however, not mandatory for us and serves only to keep you informed.

Storage duration

After your enquiry has been dealt with, the data captured is promptly deleted unless any statutory retention periods exist.

Objection and deletion

The options open to you for raising objections and demanding deletion are based on the general provisions in data protection legislation on your rights to do this, as described later in this data protection notice.

Necessity to provide personal data

Use of the contact forms is voluntary and is neither contractually nor legally prescribed. You do not have to make contact with us via the contact form. You can instead also use the other contact options indicated on our site. If you do want to use our contact form, you must fill in the fields marked as mandatory. If you do not fill in the contact form's required details, either you will be unable to submit your enquiry or we will unfortunately be unable to process it.

Extent of the processing of personal data

On various pages we integrate and use cookies in order to facilitate certain functions of our website and to integrate external web services. These cookies are small text files that your browser can store on your device. These text files contain a distinctive character string that uniquely identifies the browser whenever you return to our website. The process of storing a cookie file is also termed ‘placing a cookie’. Cookies can be placed both by the website itself and by external web services.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Art. 6.1f GDPR (legitimate interest) / Art. 6.1a / Art. 9.1a GDPR (consent).

The generally applicable rule is that in the case of cookies that are captured on the basis of a legitimate interest our legitimate interest lies in ensuring the functionality of our website and the services integrated on it (technically necessary cookies). It may also be that the cookies increase its user-friendliness and enable it to be targeted more accurately to the individual user. In this regard we have performed a balancing act between your interests and ours.

Using the cookie technology we are able to identify, analyse and track individual website visitors only if the visitor has consented to the use of cookies as per Art. 6.1a GDPR.

Purpose of the data processing

The cookies get placed by our website / the external web services in order to maintain the functionality of our site, to improve the user-friendliness or to pursue the purpose specified with your consent. The cookie technology also enables us to recognise individual visitors by using pseudonyms, e.g. custom or chance IDs, so that we are able to provide more personalised services. Details are listed in the table above.

Storage duration

The cookies listed get stored in your browser until they are deleted or, in the case of a session cookie, until the session has finished.

Raising objections, revoking consent and deletion

You can set your browser as you wish so that the placing of cookies is prevented across the board. You are then able to decide case by case whether to accept cookies or to universally accept them. Cookies can be used for different purposes, e.g. in order to recognise that your access device is already connected to our website (permanent cookies) or to save most recently viewed offers (session cookies). If you have expressly given us permission to process your personal data, you can revoke this consent at any time. Please note that the legitimacy of the processing done on the basis of your consent up until the point at which you revoke it is not affected by this.

 

7. Data security and protection, communication by e-mail

Your personal data is protected by technical and organisational measures in such a way during its capture, storage and processing that it is not accessible to third parties. In the case of unencrypted communication by e-mail we cannot guarantee complete data security along the transmission path to our IT systems. Wherever there is a great need to keep information confidential, we therefore recommend an encrypted means of communication or sending it by post.

 

8. Automatic e-mail archiving

Extent of the processing of personal data

We specifically draw your attention to the fact that our e-mail system has an automated archiving process. It digitally archives all incoming and outgoing e-mails in a fully auditable format.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Art. 6.1c GDPR (legal obligation). The legal obligation consists in the adherence to provisions of fiscal and trade legislation (e.g. §§ 146 and 147 of the German Tax Code [AO] and §§ 238 and 257 of the German Commercial Code [HGB]).

Purpose of the data processing

The purpose of the archiving is adherence to provisions of fiscal legislation (e.g. §§ 146 and 147 of the German Tax Code [AO] – Obligation to keep e-mails of legal fiscal relevance) and trade legislation (e.g. §§ 238 and 257 of the German Commercial Code [HGB] – Obligation to archive business correspondence).

Storage duration

Our mail communication is stored until the expiry of retention obligations pursuant to fiscal and commercial law. The period of retention can be up to 10 years.

Objection and deletion

Pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR you are able to object at any time to the processing of your data and demand as per Art. 17 GDPR that it be deleted. What rights you have in this regard and how you can exercise them is explained later in this data protection notice.

Handling job application documents

If you have any questions relating to our e-mail archiving system, please contact our data protection officer. We would in addition draw your attention to the fact that we consider only application documents in the form of PDF files. Zipped files (WinZip, WinRAR, 7Zip, etc.) get filtered out by our security systems and do not get delivered to the intended recipient. Applications in Word file format and other file formats are also not considered and are deleted unread. Please note that application documents sent by e-mail unencrypted can potentially be opened by third parties before they reach our IT systems. We work on the basis that we may reply to unencrypted application mails in unencrypted format too. If you do not wish us to do so, please indicate this in your application mail.
