1.4 Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke an already given consent at any time. To do so, it is sufficient to let us know via email. The legality of the data processing carried out up until you have revoked your consent remains unaffected by said revocation.

1.5 Objection to data processing

Insofar as we base the processing of your personal data on the balance of interests, you may object to the processing. This is the case if the processing is not necessary, in particular, for the fulfillment of a contract with you, which is presented by us in each case in the description of the functions and offers. When exercising such an objection, we ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we have done. In the event of your justified objection, we will review the factual situation and either discontinue or adapt the data processing or show you our compelling legitimate grounds on the basis of which we will continue the processing.

Of course, you can object to the processing of your personal data for purposes of advertising and data analysis at any time. You can submit your objection for advertising purposes using the contact details provided under 1.2.

1.6 Right to data portability

You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.

1.7 Disclosure to authorities

We reserve the right to disclose information about you in the event we are required by law to do so by lawful authorities or law enforcement agencies.

Legal basis: Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. c GDPR (legal obligation)

2 Collection and processing of personal data when visiting our website

2.1 Server log files

In the case of merely informational use of the website, we only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server and that is technically necessary for the presentation of our website and to ensure stability and security.

We pass on the collected data to the responsible internal departments or to external service companies (e.g. hosting, content management system) for processing in accordance with the necessary purposes (to support troubleshooting).

Legal basis: Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f GDPR. (legitimate interest)

2.3 Analysis tools

When visiting our website, your surfing behavior can be statistically evaluated. This is done mainly with cookies and with so-called analysis programs. The analysis of your surfing behavior is usually anonymous; the surfing behavior cannot be traced back to you. You can object to this analysis or prevent it by not using certain tools. We will inform you about the objection options in this privacy policy.

2.3.1 Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics 4, a web analytics service operated and provided by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”). Google processes website usage data on our behalf and contractually undertakes to take measures to ensure the confidentiality of the data processed.

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that enable an analysis of how you use our web pages. The information collected by means of the cookies about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In Google Analytics, all IP addresses collected from users in the EU are deleted before being recorded via EU domains and servers.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website and compiling reports on website activity. The reports provided by Google Analytics are used to analyze usage and regularly optimize our website. The statistics obtained allow us to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. In addition, we receive information about the functionality of our site (for example, to detect navigation problems).

When configuring Google Analytics, care was taken to ensure that Google receives this data as a processor and thus may not use this data for its own purposes. The configuration of the “Google Analytics advertising functions” is independent of this and is described in the corresponding section below, if it is also used on this website.

Information on the third-party provider:

Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd.
Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4,
Ireland Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001

Terms of use: http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html

Privacy policy: http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy

For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has concluded standard contractual clauses in accordance with Art. 46 GDPR. Further information can be found here: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/data-transfers-outside-eu_de.

This data is transferred to a Google server in the USA.

Google Analytics stores cookies in your web browser for a period of two years after your last visit. These cookies contain a randomly generated user ID, with which you can be recognized on future website visits.

The recorded data is stored together with the randomly generated user ID, which enables the evaluation of pseudonymous user profiles. This user-related data is automatically deleted after 14 months. Other data remains stored in aggregated form indefinitely. If you do not agree with the collection, you can prevent it with the one-time installation of the browser add-on to disable Google Analytics or by rejecting the cookies via the cookie settings.

2.4 External links

We are not responsible for the offers of third parties to which we refer on our website. Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the third-party providers can be found in the data protection declarations communicated below.

2.5 YouTube with enhanced privacy

This website embeds videos from YouTube. The operator of the pages is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

We use YouTube in the extended data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode ensures that YouTube does not store information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. The transfer of data to YouTube partners, on the other hand, is not necessarily excluded by the extended data protection mode. Thus, YouTube – regardless of whether you watch a video – connects to the Google DoubleClick network.

As soon as you start a YouTube video on this website, a connection to YouTube’s servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you will enable YouTube to associate your browsing behavior directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

Furthermore, YouTube may store various cookies on your end device after starting a video or use comparable recognition technologies (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.

If necessary, further data processing operations may be triggered after the start of a YouTube video, over which we have no control.

YouTube is used in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. If a corresponding consent was requested, the processing is based exclusively on Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.

For more information about privacy protection at YouTube, please see their privacy policy at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

3 Other functions and offers (inside and outside the website)

n addition to the purely informational use of our website, we offer various services that you can use if you are interested. For this purpose, you will usually have to provide additional personal data that we use to provide the respective service and to which the aforementioned data processing principles apply.

If we use contracted service companies for individual functions of our offer or would like to use your data for advertising purposes, we will inform you in detail about the respective processes below. In doing so, we also state the specified criteria for the storage period.

External service providers that have been carefully selected and commissioned by us, are bound by our instructions and are regularly monitored.

3.1 Contact form

If you send us inquiries via the contact form, the information you provide in the inquiry form, including the contact data you enter there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not share this data without your consent.

The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR, provided that your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR) if this has been requested.

The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

3.2 Request by email, telephone, or fax

If you contact us by email, telephone, or fax, your inquiry including all related personal data (name, inquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not share this data without your consent.

The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR, provided that your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is

based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR) if this has been requested.

The data you send to us via contact requests will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

3.3 Processing of data (customer and contract data)

We collect, process, and use personal data only to the extent that they are necessary for the establishment, content or modification, of the legal relationship (master data). This is done on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the performance of a contract or pre-contractual measures. We collect, process, and use personal data about the use of our internet pages (usage data) only to the extent necessary to enable the user to use the service or to bill the user. The collected customer data will be deleted after completion of the order or termination of the business relationship. Statutory retention periods remain unaffected.

3.4 Privacy policy for applicants (recruiting)
We provide you with a separate Privacy Policy for Applicants* (Recruiting), which refers exclusively to the data collected during the online application process, to inform you about how we handle your personal data collected by us during the application process.
