When using our services, you may be asked to provide personal information. Answering these questions is voluntary. Your personal data will be stored and processed in accordance with German data protection regulations.
The personal data collected within the scope of our website is used for the purpose of contract processing and handling your inquiries.
Legal basis of our data processing
The legal bases of the data processing are derived from the provision of the
Art. 6 DS-GVO, whereby our data processing is predominantly based on the following legal grounds:
§ on the basis of consent, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR
§ for the performance of the contract or for pre-contractual measures, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit b. DS-GVO
§ to fulfill legal obligations, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c. DS-GVO
§ for the protection of legitimate interests, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DS-GVO
In accordance with Art. 13 DS-GVO, the underlying legal basis in each case is named below for the respective processing operations in this privacy statement.
Contact requests / contact possibility
If you contact us via contact form or e-mail, the data you provide will be used to process your request. The provision of the data is necessary for processing and answering your request – without their provision, we can not answer your request or at best limited. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
Disclosure of personal data
Personal data will only be passed on without express separate consent to the extent that this is necessary for the processing of the contract. Personal data will not be passed on to third parties beyond this unless we are obliged to do so by court order or by law.
Data deletion and storage period
The personal data of the data subject shall be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage ceases to apply. In addition, storage may take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject.
If the data are no longer required for the fulfillment of contractual obligations, they are regularly deleted, unless their temporary further processing is required due to commercial and tax retention periods (including the German Commercial Code (HGB), the German Fiscal Code (AO). The periods specified there for storage or documentation are two to ten years.
Information, amendment and revocation
You will receive information free of charge at any time about which personal data we have collected or stored about you. If applicable, you have a right to correction, blocking or deletion of your personal data in accordance with the Federal Data Protection Act.
Collection of personal data when visiting our website
When using the website for information purposes only, we only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server.
The following data may be collected in the process:
- Information about the browser type and version used
- The operating system of the user
- The Internet service provider of the user
- The IP address of the user
- Date and time of access
- Websites from which the user’s system accesses our website (referrer)
- Web pages that are called up by the user’s system via our website
The processing of the data is used to deliver the content of our website, to ensure the functionality of our information technology systems and to optimize our website. The data of the log files are always stored separately from other personal data of the users.
In order to make the visit to our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies on various pages. These are small text files that are stored on your terminal device. Some of the cookies we use are deleted at the end of the browser session, i.e. after you close your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your terminal device and enable us to recognize your browser on your next visit (persistent cookies). You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and decide individually about their acceptance or exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general. If cookies are not accepted, the functionality of our website may be limited.
Data protection during applications and the application process
The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application procedure. The processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends corresponding application documents to the controller electronically, for example by e-mail or via a web form located on the website. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents shall be automatically deleted two months after the notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller prevent such deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
The controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the collection, compilation and evaluation of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data about the website from which a data subject has accessed a website (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website have been accessed or how often and for how long a subpage has been viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and to analyze the cost-benefit of internet advertising.
The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The controller uses the addition “_gat._anonymizeIp” for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is shortened and anonymized by Google if access to our Internet pages takes place from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the flow of visitors to our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us showing the activities on our website, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.
Google Analytics sets a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. By each call of one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically caused by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission calculations.
By means of the cookie, personal information, for example the access time, the place from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject, is stored. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may share this personal data collected through the technical process with third parties.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
Integration of Google Maps
(1) On this website we use the offer of Google Maps. This allows us to show you interactive maps directly in the website and enables you to use the map function comfortably.
(2) By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding sub-page of our website. In addition, the data collected when visiting our website is transmitted. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data is directly assigned to your account. If you do not want the assignment with your profile at Google, 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 demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) for the provision of tailored 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.
