Personal data includes all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter “data subject”); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified directly or indirectly. An association with an identifier such as a name or pseudonym, an identification number, location data or an online identifier is sufficient. However, special characteristics are also sufficient for identification, such as the expression of physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity. This includes, for example, name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, but also the IP address, even if this is only indirectly or temporarily assigned to a specific person. A distinction is also made between personal data that is required for the establishment and content of the legal relationship or changes to it (inventory data) and personal data about the use of Internet pages (usage data).
Hyperlinks represent a cross-reference in a document and correspond in principle to source references in a printed document; however, unlike in a book, you can call up these cross-references by clicking on the reference. References in a web document like this are typical. The references can link several documents and also web pages from different providers. In their entirety, these references reflect the World Wide Web (www). A distinction is made between internal links and external links. Internal links connect several text passages or documents under one domain, external links lead to domains, websites and servers of other providers. Other data protection regulations may apply on other web servers. You can tell whether there is a link to an external website by taking a closer look at the link. The destination of the link can be displayed by your browser. Please refer to the instructions of your browser for more information; in many web browsers it is sufficient for the link to be displayed if you move the mouse over the link without clicking on it.
Your web browser transmits usage data to our web server the first time you access our web pages. This is the only way our web server can present the website to your web browser. This usage data is available in the HTTP/S header, is sent automatically by you and is used for the duration of the page call. They contain, among other things:
Further information about the HTTP header can be found in Wikipedia as well as in the RFC 2616 specification, chapter 14. The aforementioned data serve the following purpose:
General information on the legal basis for data processing on this website
If you have consented to data processing, we process your personal data on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO or Art. 9 (2) lit. a DSGVO if special categories of data are processed in accordance with Art. 9 (1) DSGVO. In the event of express consent to the transfer of personal data to third countries, data processing is also carried out on the basis of Art. 49 (1) a DSGVO. If you have consented to the storage of cookies or to the access to information in your terminal device (e.g. via device fingerprinting), the data processing is additionally carried out on the basis of Section 25 (1) TTDSG. This consent can be revoked at any time. If your data is required for the performance of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, we process your data on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO. Furthermore, if your data is required for the fulfilment of a legal obligation, we process it on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO. Furthermore, the data processing may be carried out on the basis of our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Information on the relevant legal basis in each individual case is provided in the following paragraphs of this data protection declaration.
You can contact us via our website/contact form, but also by telephone, fax, e-mail and other means of communication. The information you provide is voluntary. With your voluntary information, we additionally process the time of the enquiry as well as, for technical reasons, your usage data sent in connection with the means of communication, such as telephone number or e-mail address. If you make an enquiry in the context of a contractual relationship or for the purpose of initiating a contract, the data processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. b) DSGVO. In all other cases, we process your data based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a) DSGVO. We use the collected data for individual communication with you, for contract initiation or implementation.
The personal data collected by us for the use of the contact form will be deleted after completion of your request, at the latest after expiry of the statutory retention obligations. Please note in connection with e-mails: Despite our comprehensive technical and organisational measures to protect your data, communication by e-mail has security vulnerabilities. If you wish to transmit confidential information, we advise you to use encrypted transmission, for example using PGP or S/MIME.
Among other things, we use tools from companies based in the USA or other third countries that are not secure under data protection law. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to these third countries and processed there. We would like to point out that no level of data protection comparable to that in the EU can be guaranteed in these countries. For example, US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as a data subject being able to take legal action against this. It can therefore not be ruled out that US authorities (e.g. intelligence services) process, evaluate and permanently store your data located on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.
A cookie is a small data file containing a string of characters that is generated and stored on your terminal device (for example, desktop PC, smartphone or tablet) during your visit to our website. A cookie can only contain the information that we send to your client; it cannot be used to read any further data on your device.
With the help of these cookies, your end device – but not directly its user – can be recognised. So-called session cookies contain a randomly generated, unique identification number. This enables our server to recognise which pages of the website the user has already visited during the respective “session”. They are usually deleted automatically after the session ends. Alternatively, the session ID can be stored on the server or transmitted in the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI). In contrast to session cookies, temporary cookies are stored on the client for a specific period of time. A previous visit to the website is recognised by the temporary cookie and the previous settings are retained. Cookies serve the purpose of customising the use of the website and the user profile. This means that settings that have already been made do not have to be re-entered on a new visit. They can also be used to statistically record the use of the website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimisation.
This website is hosted by an external service provider (hoster). The personal data collected on this website is stored on the hoster’s servers. This may include, but is not limited to, IP addresses, contact requests, meta and communication data, contractual data, contact details, names, website accesses and other data generated via a website. The hoster is used for the purpose of fulfilling the contract with our potential and existing customers (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO) and in the interest of a secure, fast and efficient provision of our online offer by a professional provider (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). Insofar as a corresponding consent has been requested, processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information in the user’s terminal device (e.g. device fingerprinting) within the meaning of the TTDSG. The consent can be revoked at any time.
Our hoster will only process your data insofar as this is necessary for the fulfilment of its service obligations and will follow our instructions with regard to this data.
In general, we will only process and transmit your personal data to third parties under the following conditions:
Our tracking measures are based on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) DSGVO. They serve the statistical collection of website visits and thus the needs-based design and ongoing optimisation of the website.
When visiting this website, your surfing behaviour may be statistically evaluated. This is done primarily with so-called analysis programs.
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 enables the website operator to analyse the behaviour of website visitors. In doing so, the website operator receives various usage data, such as page views, length of stay, operating systems used and the origin of the user. This data is assigned to the respective end device of the user.
There is no assignment to a user ID. Furthermore, Google Analytics allows us to record your mouse and scroll movements and clicks, among other things. Furthermore, Google Analytics uses various modelling approaches to supplement the data records collected and uses machine learning technologies in the data analysis. Google Analytics uses technologies that enable the recognition of the user for the purpose of analysing user behaviour (e.g. cookies or device fingerprinting). The information collected by Google about the use of this website is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The use of this service is based on your consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG. The consent can be revoked at any time. Data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission.

This site uses the map service Google Maps. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. In order to use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to store your IP address. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transmission. If Google Maps is activated, Google may use Google Web Fonts for the purpose of uniform font display. When you call up Google Maps, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.
Google Maps is used in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers and to make it easy to find the places we indicate on the website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Insofar as a corresponding consent has been requested, processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information in the user’s terminal device (e.g. device fingerprinting) within the meaning of the TTDSG. The consent can be revoked at any time. Data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. Details can be found here:

This website embeds videos from the website YouTube. The operator of the website is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
When you visit one of our websites on which YouTube is embedded, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited. Furthermore, YouTube can save various cookies on your end device or use comparable technologies for recognition (e.g. device fingerprinting). In this way, YouTube can obtain information about visitors to this website. This information is used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve the user experience and prevent fraud attempts.
We have concluded a contract on order processing (AVV) with the above-mentioned provider. This is a contract required by data protection law, which ensures that the provider only processes the personal data of our website visitors in accordance with our instructions and in compliance with the DSGVO.
We offer you the opportunity to apply for a job with us (e.g. by e-mail, post or via an online application form). In the following, we inform you about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected as part of the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing and use of your data will be carried out in accordance with applicable data protection law and all other statutory provisions and that your data will be treated in strict confidence.
When you send us an application, we process your associated personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes taken during interviews, etc.) to the extent that this is necessary to decide on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is § 26 BDSG under German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO (general contract initiation) and – if you have given your consent – Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. The consent can be revoked at any time. Your personal data will only be passed on within our company to persons involved in processing your application.
If the application is successful, the data you submitted will be stored in our data processing systems on the basis of Section 26 BDSG and Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship.
If we are unable to make you a job offer, if you reject a job offer or withdraw your application, we reserve the right to retain the data you have submitted for up to 6 months from the end of the application process (rejection or withdrawal of the application) on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). The data will then be deleted and the physical application documents destroyed. This storage serves in particular as evidence in the event of a legal dispute. If it is evident that the data will be required after the 6-month period has expired (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), the data will only be deleted when the purpose for further retention no longer applies. Longer storage may also take place if you have given your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO) or if legal storage obligations prevent deletion.
Data subjects have the right,
As a rule, data subjects can contact the supervisory authority of their usual place of residence or workplace or our registered office. The competent supervisory authority is the State Data Protection Commissioner of the federal state in which we have our registered office.
In the case of processing of personal data on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f) DSGVO, data subjects have a right of objection. You can object to the processing of personal data. There must be grounds arising from their particular situation or the objection must be directed against direct marketing, Art. 21 DSGVO. In the latter case, data subjects have a general right to object, which can be implemented without specifying a particular situation.

IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA ARE PROCESSED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA CONCERNING YOU FOR THE PURPOSE OF SUCH MARKETING; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING INSOFAR AS IT IS RELATED TO SUCH DIRECT MARKETING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21 PARA. 2 DSGVO).
