SSL or TLS encryption
To protect the transmission of confidential content that you send to us via this website and for security reasons, our website uses SSL or TLS encryption. This means that data you transmit via this website cannot be read by third parties. You can recognize the encrypted connection by the "https://" address line or by the lock symbol of your browser.
Server log files
The provider of the website automatically collects and stores information in server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- the date and time of an access to the website,
- the website from which an accessing system arrives at our website (so-called referrer),
- the sub-websites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website,
- the operating system used by the accessing system
- the browser types and versions used,
- the Internet service provider of the accessing system
- an Internet protocol address (IP address),
- other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
A combination of this data with other sources of information does not take place. The basis of the data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
Our website is hosted by an external service provider (hoster). The web hosting provider is 1&1 IONOS SE, Elgendorfer Str. 57, 56410 Montabaur.
Information on the data protection of 1&1 IONOS SE can be found here: www.ionos.de/terms-gtc/terms-privacy.
As soon as personal data is collected on this website, it is processed on the hoster's servers. The purpose of the processing is a secure, fast and efficient provision of our online offer.
The legal basis of the processing is the legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO to secure our internet presence.
To fully comply with the legal data protection requirements, we have concluded an order processing contract with 1&1 IONOS SE.
Legal basis of the processing
Art. 6 I lit. a DSGVO serves the controller as the legal basis for processing operations where consent has been obtained from the data subject for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for a delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 I lit. b DSGVO. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about products or services. If the controller is subject to a legal obligation by which a processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for compliance with tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DSGVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DSGVO. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DSGVO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of the controller or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (Recital 47, second sentence, GDPR).
Duration for which the personal data are stored
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding personal data will be deleted, provided that they are no longer required for the performance of the contract or the initiation of the contract.
Insofar as we provide advance services, e.g. in the case of purchase on account, leasing & financing, it is necessary for the conclusion of the contract pursuant to Art. 22 (2) lit. a DSGVO to obtain identity and creditworthiness information from service companies specializing in this area (credit agencies). For this purpose, we transmit your personal data required for a credit check to the following company(ies):
- Creditreform Boniversum GmbH, Hellersbergstraße 11, 41460 Neuss, Germany.
Appropriate measures to protect your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests will be taken into account. You have the opportunity to present your point of view and contest the decision by contacting the contact option described below. After complete processing of the contract, your data processed for this purpose will be deleted, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use data beyond this, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this declaration.
We store the data transmitted in the contact form together with your contact data in order to be able to process your inquiry or to be able to answer your further requests. Your data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.
The basis of the data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO, which allows the processing of data based on your consent. You can revoke your consent at any time without giving reasons. An informal communication by e-mail is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data transmitted via the contact form will be stored until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or there is no longer any need to store it. Mandatory legal provisions or retention periods remain unaffected.
If you contact us (by e-mail or telephone), the user's details will be processed for the purpose of handling the contact request and its processing in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.
The user's details may be stored in our Customer Relationship Management System ("CRM System") or comparable inquiry organization.
The user's details will be stored until you request us to delete them, revoke your consent to store them or there is no longer any need to store them. Mandatory legal provisions or retention periods remain unaffected.
Data protection for applications and in the application process
If you send us your application documents, we process your personal data for the purpose of handling the application process. If you send us your application documents electronically, for example by e-mail or a web form, we will also process them electronically.
The personal data you provide will be used exclusively for processing your application for the advertised position. Your personal data will only be disclosed to persons involved in the application process. All employees entrusted with data processing are obliged to maintain the confidentiality of your data. We do not pass on your personal data to third parties unless you have consented to the passing on of data or we are obliged to pass on data due to legal regulations and/or official or court orders.
If you provide us with personal data as part of the application process, this data is divided into the following data types and data categories for collection, processing and/or use:
- Personal data (e.g. first and last name, date of birth, address)
- Communication data (e.g. telephone number, e-mail address)
- Data on assessment and evaluation in the application process
- Data on education and previous professional career (e.g. school, vocational training, studies, doctorate, certificates)
- Data on other qualifications (e.g. language skills, PC skills, voluntary activities)
- Application photo
- Information on desired salary
- Application history
If a contract of employment is concluded with you, the data submitted will be stored for the purpose of the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If no employment contract is concluded with you, the data will be automatically deleted 6 months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller oppose deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
For the integration and display of video content, our website uses plugins from YouTube. The provider of the video portal is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
When a page with an integrated YouTube plugin is called up, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. YouTube thereby learns which of our pages you have accessed.
YouTube can assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile if you are logged into your YouTube account. By logging out beforehand, you have the option to prevent this.
YouTube is used in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
We have entered into a data sharing responsibility agreement (Controller Addendum) with LinkedIn. This agreement specifies the data processing operations for which we or LinkedIn are responsible when you visit our LinkedIn page. You can view this agreement at the following link: legal.linkedin.com/pages-joint-controller-addendum
When the user calls up a page on which the responsible party has integrated a LinkedIn component, information is sent to LinkedIn about which page the user is calling up. If the user is logged in to LinkedIn at the same time, LinkedIn recognizes which specific sub-pages the user visits for the entire duration of the visit. This information is collected by LinkedIn and assigned to the respective account of the user. If the user clicks on a LinkedIn button integrated on the website, LinkedIn assigns the information to the user's respective account and stores this information. Further information on the LinkedIn plug-ins can be found at developer.linkedin.com/plugins.
If such transmission of this information to LinkedIn is not desired by the user, he can prevent the transmission by logging out of his LinkedIn account before calling up our website.
In connection with the operation of this LinkedIn page, we use the Page Insights function of LinkedIn to obtain anonymized statistical data on the users of our LinkedIn page.
The processing of the information generated by Insights is intended to enable us, as the operator of the LinkedIn page, to obtain statistics that LinkedIn compiles based on visits to our LinkedIn page. For example, it enables us to gain knowledge of the profiles of visitors who visit our LinkedIn page. Likewise, a demographic and geographic analysis is created and made available as a result of users' visits. The evaluation is transmitted exclusively in anonymized form. Furthermore, we use our LinkedIn page to communicate with users. We may thus receive further information, such as user comments, private chat messages or because the user follows us or shares our content. The processing then takes place exclusively for communication with the user.
In the context of collecting personal data via the LinkedIn page, we invoke our legitimate interest pursuant to Article 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO.
We use the service rapidmail for sending newsletters. The provider is rapidmail GmbH, Augustinerplatz 2, 79098 Freiburg im Breisgau. This service allows us to organize and analyze the newsletter dispatch. On the servers of rapidmail, your entered data, such as your e-mail address, is stored for sending the newsletter. The servers are located in Germany.
Newsletter dispatch with rapidmail allows us to analyze the behavior of the newsletter recipient. Through the analysis, it is possible to know, among other things, how many recipients opened their newsletter and with what frequency the links in the newsletter were clicked.
The service rapidmail supports conversion tracking in order to analyze whether a previously defined action, such as a product purchase, has taken place after clicking on a link. Details on data analysis by rapidmail can be found at: www.rapidmail.de/hilfe/kategorie/statistiken.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO, which permits the processing of data based on your consent. You can revoke your already given consent at any time. For the revocation, an informal message by e-mail or unsubscribe via "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation. The data entered when subscribing to the newsletter will be deleted upon unsubscription.
If you do not wish to have your data analyzed by rapidmail, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. To unsubscribe, it is sufficient to send us an informal message by e-mail or to unsubscribe via the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the cancellation. The data entered when subscribing to the newsletter will be deleted upon unsubscription.
Details on the data protection provisions of rapidmail can be found at: www.rapidmail.de/datenschutz.
In order to fully comply with the legal data protection requirements, we have concluded an order processing agreement with rapidmail.

Right to confirmation
You have the right to request confirmation from the controller as to whether personal data concerning you is being processed.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request the controller to restrict processing if one of the following conditions is met:
- The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
- The processing is unlawful, the data subject objects to the erasure of the personal data and requests instead the restriction of the use of the personal data.
- The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the data subject needs it for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.
- The data subject has objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) DS-GVO and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.
Right to object
You have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you that is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (e) or (f) DS-GVO. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The controller shall no longer process your personal data in the event of the objection, unless he can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If the controller processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data for such marketing. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to the controller to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the controller will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her which is carried out by the controller for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the DS-GVO, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.
The data subject is also free, in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to exercise his or her right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
Right to complain to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of a breach of data protection law, you as the data subject have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority regarding data protection issues is the State Data Protection Commissioner of the federal state in which the registered office of our company is located.
Die Landesbeauftragte für den Datenschutz Niedersachsen
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in performance of a contract handed over to you or to third parties. Your data will be provided in a machine-readable format. If you request that the data be transferred directly to another responsible party, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.
Right to information, correction, deletion, blocking
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to free information about your stored personal data, the origin of the data, the purpose of the processing, their recipients and, if applicable, a right to correction, deletion or blocking of this data.
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Some data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. A revocation of your already given consent is possible at any time. An informal communication by e-mail is sufficient for this purpose. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Automated decisions including profiling
You have the right not to be subjected to a decision based solely on automated processing - including profiling - which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you, unless the decision:
(1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller; or
(2) is permitted by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject, and that law contains suitable measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject; or
(3) is made with the express consent of the data subject.
If the decision is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the controller, or if it is made with the data subject's explicit consent, the controller shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the data subject's involvement on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and contest the decision.
