04. Data collection on this website
Our Internet pages use so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files and do not cause any damage to your device. They are stored either temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies) on your device. Session cookies are automatically deleted after your visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them yourself or your web browser automatically deletes them.
In some cases, cookies from third-party companies can also be stored on your device when you enter our website (third-party cookies). These enable us or you to use certain third-party services (e.g., cookies for processing payment services).
Cookies have different functions. Numerous cookies are technically necessary because certain website functions would not work without them (e.g., the shopping cart function or the display of videos). Other cookies are used to evaluate user behavior or to display advertising.
Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process (necessary cookies) or to provide certain functions you require (functional cookies, e.g., for the shopping cart function) or to optimize the website (e.g., cookies to measure the web audience) based on Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. GDPR are saved, unless another legal basis is given. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. If consent to the storage of cookies has been requested, the cookies concerned are stored exclusively based on this consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR); the consent can be revoked at any time.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when you close the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.

Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular statutory retention periods - remain unaffected.
05. Social media
Presence in social networks (social media)
Purposes of processing
We are represented on social media platforms in order to get in touch with the users of these platforms and to increase our reach (level of awareness). Communication with users takes place by the use of the functions available on the platforms. In order to measure the success of our activities, we use evaluations or tracking functions (e.g., for interest- / behavior-related profiling), cookies and remarketing functions offered by the respective manufacturer. In order to promote the exchange of views or to win new customers, we look after groups.
Notes on data processing by social networks
The operators of social networks are usually not based in the European Union. This means that personal data is also processed outside of the European Union (e.g., USA). As a result, there is an increased risk that user data will not be processed in accordance with the data protection requirements required by the European Union or that it will be difficult or impossible for users to exercise their rights.
Social networks process extensive user data in order to create personal usage profiles. These usage profiles are used in particular for advertising purposes or market research data. This can be expressed in the form of advertisements that are displayed to users inside or outside the social networks that correspond to the interests of the user. In addition, e.g., data on the devices, browsers and resolution used when using the platforms are usually assigned to the usage profile. For these purposes, cookies are stored on the users' computers, among other things.
For a detailed description of the respective forms of processing and the possibilities of objection (opt-out), we refer to the data protection declarations and information provided by the operators of the respective networks.
You can best assert your data subject rights (e.g., information or deletion) with the respective provider. Only the operators of the social platforms have access to your data and can fulfill your requests for data subject rights.
Types of data processed
- Personal identification data (e.g., names, addresses, e-mail address, telephone number)
- Electronic identification data (e.g., websites visited, interest in content, access times, device information, IP addresses)
- Legitimate interests (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f. GDPR).
06. Analysis tools
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 analyze the behavior of website visitors. 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 may be summarized by Google in a profile that is assigned to the respective user or their device.
Google Analytics uses technologies that enable the user to be recognized for the purpose of analyzing user behavior (e.g. cookies or device fingerprinting). The information collected by Google about the use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
This analysis tool is used on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize both its website and its advertising. If a corresponding consent has been requested (e.g., consent to the storage of cookies), processing takes place exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.

Google Analytics IP anonymization
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. As a result, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted to the USA. The full IP address will only be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
Google Analytics reports on demographics and interests
This website uses the “demographic characteristics” function of Google Analytics in order to be able to show website visitors appropriate advertisements within the Google advertising network. This allows reports to be created that contain statements on the age, gender and interests of the site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google as well as from visitor data from third-party providers. These data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as described in the point "Objection to data collection".
Storage period with Google Analytics
Data stored by Google at user and event level that are linked to cookies, user IDs (e.g., user ID) or advertising IDs (e.g., DoubleClick cookies, Android advertising ID) are anonymized after 14 months or deleted. You can find details on this under the following link: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7667196?hl=de

Data processing audio and video conferencing tools
We use online conference tools for communication with our customers. The individual tools we use are listed below. If you communicate with us via video or audio conference via the Internet, your personal data will be recorded and processed by us and the provider of the respective conference tool.
The conference tools collect all data that you provide / use to use the tools (e-mail address and / or your telephone number). The conference tools also process the duration of the conference, start and end (time) of participation in the conference, number of participants and other “context information” in connection with the communication process (metadata).
Furthermore, the provider of the tool processes all technical data that are required to process online communication. This includes in particular IP addresses, MAC addresses, device IDs, device type, operating system type and version, client version, camera type, microphone or loudspeaker as well as the type of connection.

09. Other services
Handling of applicant data
We offer you the opportunity to apply to us (e.g., by e-mail, post or via the online application form). In the following, we will inform you about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected during the application process. We assure you that your data will be collected, processed and used in accordance with the applicable data protection law and all other statutory provisions and that your data will be treated strictly confidential.
Scope and purpose of the data collection
If you send us an application, we process your related personal data (e.g., contact and communication data, application documents, notes in the context of job interviews, etc.), insofar as this is necessary to decide on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is § 26 BDSG-new under German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. b GDPR (general contract initiation) and - if you have given your consent - Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR . The consent can be withdrawn at any time. Your personal data will only be passed on to persons within our company who are involved in processing your application.
If the application is successful, the data you submit will be stored in our data processing systems based on Section 26 of the BDSG-new and Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR for the purpose of carrying out the employment relationship.
Retention period of the data
If we cannot make you a job offer, you reject a job offer or withdraw your application, we reserve the right to store the data you have transmitted based on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR) for up to 6 months to be kept with us from the end of the application process (rejection or withdrawal of the application). The data will then be deleted, and the physical application documents destroyed. The storage serves in particular for evidence purposes 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), it will only be deleted when the purpose for further storage no longer applies.
Longer storage can also take place if you have given your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR) or if statutory retention requirements prevent deletion.
