III. General information about data processing
We only collect and use personal data of our users insofar as this is necessary to provide a functional website as well as our content and services. The collection and use of our users’ personal data takes place routinely upon users’ consent. An exception applies in cases where it is not possible to obtain consent in advance for practical reasons, and where data processing is permitted by the statutory provisions.
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Art. 6 (1) clause 1 (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.
In the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) clause (b) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to the processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfill a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) clause 1 (c) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis.
In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
Insofar as the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and to the extent that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override this legitimate interest, Art. 6 (1) clause (1) (f) GDPR serves the legal basis for processing.
The personal data of the data subject will be erased or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage ceases to apply. In addition, such storage may take place if provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the controller is subject. The data can also be blocked or erased when a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a requirement for the continued storage of the data to conclude or perform a contract.
IV. Availability of the website and creating log files
Whenever you visit our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the visitor’s computer system.
The following data is collected:
The data is also stored in our system’s log files. The data is not stored in conjunction with the user’s other personal data.
The legal basis for temporary storage of the data and log files is Art. 6 (1) clause 1 (f) GDPR.
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user’s computer. For this the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session. The data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. In this context, no data is evaluated for marketing purposes. This also constitutes our legitimate interest in data processing as per Art. 6 (1) clause 1(f) GDPR.
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer needed to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the event that data is collected in order to make the website available, this is the case once each session has ended. If the data is stored in log files, this will happen after seven days at the latest. Storage period may be extended. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated to ensure that the calling client can no longer be traced back.
Collecting the data in order to make the website available, and saving this data in log files, is necessary in order to operate the website. The user is therefore not entitled to object to this.
V. Usage of cookies
The cookies save and transmit the following data:
This allows the following data to be transmitted:
The legal basis for processing personal data using cookies is Art. 6 (1) clause 1 (f) GDPR.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies for analysis purposes with the relevant user’s consent is Art. 6 para. (1) clause 1 (a) GDPR.
Analysis cookies are used to improve the quality of our website and its content. The analysis cookies tell us how the website is being used, which allows us to continuously improve our offerings. This allows us to offer you optimized user guidance and with repeated use to present you with a website which is as varied as possible and which contains new content.
This also constitutes our legitimate interest in personal data processing as per Art. 6 (1) clause 1(f) GDPR.
VI. Online application
As part of their application, we offer users the opportunity to apply on our website by providing personal data. In doing so, the data will be entered into a contact form, transmitted to us, and stored. The following data will be collected as part of the registration process:
The following data will also be stored when you get registered:
The user’s consent to the processing of this data will be obtained in the course of the registration process.
The legal basis for the processing of data when the user’s consent has been obtained is Article 6(1) clause 1 (a) GDPR.
The data will be processed primarily for the establishment of an employment relationship. The overriding legal basis here is Art. 88 (1) GDPR in conjunction with Section 26 (1) of the new Federal Data Protection Act [BDSG-neu].
Your data will be used solely in the course of the application procedure.
Where applicable to the position to be filled, the processing of health data for the assessment of your ability to work in accordance with. Art. 9 (2) (h) in conjunction with Section 22 (1) (b) of the new Federal Data Protection Act [BDSG-neu].
If the user wishes to be included in our talent pool in the event of a rejection in order to consider him/her for job openings, he/she would have to provide a declaration of consent.
In addition, pursuant to the EU anti-terror regulations (EC regulations: Regulation (EC) 881/2002 and Regulation (EC) 2580/2001), we are obligated to compare the data against the so-called ‘EU terrorist lists’ to ensure that no funds or other economic resources are provided for terrorist purposes.
The data will be erased once it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected.This is the case for those during the registration process to fulfill a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures when the data is no longer required for the execution of the contract. Even after conclusion of the contract, it may still be necessary to store personal data of the contractual partner in order to fulfil contractual or legal obligations.
The user can have the stored data erased at any time. The stored data can be amended at any time on the user’s request. If the data is required to fulfil a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures, premature deletion of the data is only possible insofar as there are no contractual or statutory obligations to the contrary.
VII. Contact form and contact via email
This website has a contact form that can be used for establishing contact electronically. If a user accepts this option, the data entered in the contact form will be transmitted to us and stored. The following data is mandatory:
The following data will also be stored when the message is sent:
Alternatively, you can contact us via the e-mail address provided. In this case, the user’s personal data transmitted with the e-mail will be stored. In this context, no data will be disclosed to third parties. The data will be used exclusively to process your inquiry.
The legal basis for the processing of data when the user’s consent has been obtained is Article 6 (1) clause 1 (a) GDPR. The legal basis for processing the data transmitted via an email is Art. 6 (1) clause 1 (f) GDPR. If your contact is aimed at concluding a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) clause 1 (b) GDPR.
We only use personal data provided on contact forms to make the requested contact. If we do contact you by e-mail, this also constitutes the necessary interest in the processing of the data.
The other personal data processed during the sending procedure is used to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our IT systems.
The data will be erased once it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. The personal data from the contact form’s input dialog and the data sent by e-mail will be erased when the respective conversation with the user has been completed. The conversation will have been completed when it is evident from the circumstances that the matter at hand has been conclusively resolved.
The user may withdraw their consent to the processing of personal data at any time. A user who has contacted us by e-mail can object at any time to the storage of his or her personal data. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued.
All personal data stored within the course of establishing contact will be erased in that case.
VIII. Integration of Google Maps
We use Google Maps functions on this website. This allows us to display interactive maps directly on the website and enables you to conveniently use the map function.
When you visit this website, Google receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding sub-page of our website. In addition, the following data is transmitted:
The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is Art. 6 (1) clause 1 (f) GDPR. Where the user provides his/her consent, the legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 (1) clause 1 (a) GDPR.
Google stores your data as user profiles and uses them for advertising, market research and/or user-friendly design of its website. Such evaluation also takes place (even for users who are not logged in) for customized advertising and informing other social network users about activities on our website.
We have no influence on the data collected and data processing processes, nor are we aware of the full extent of data collection, the purposes of processing, the storage periods. We have no information regarding the erasure of the data by Google.
You can prevent Google from associating the user with an existing profile by logging out before clicking the link. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles. If you want to do so, you must contact Google to exercise this right.

Your right to erasure does not apply where processing is required
(1) to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information;
(2) for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;

You are entitled to be informed about the recipients by the controller upon request.
You are entitled to obtain the personal data that you provided to the controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to pass this data on to another controller without hindrance by the controller to whom the personal data was provided, as long as

The right to portability shall not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of your personal data which is based on Art. 6 (1) clause 1 (e) or (f) GDPR, including profiling based on these provisions.

(2) is admissible by law of the Union or of the Member States to which the controller is subject and that law contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests, or
(3) is made with your express consent.
These decisions, however, shall not be based on special categories of personal data referred to in Article 9 (1), unless point (a) or (g) of Article 9 (2) applies and suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests are in place.
In the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the controller shall take reasonable measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person by the controller, to state his or her point of view and to challenge the decision.
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the EU member state of your habitual residence, place of work or place of alleged infringement if you consider that the processing of data relating to you infringes the GDPR.
The supervisory authority with which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant on the progress and the outcome of the complaint including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Art. 78 GDPR.
