We delete the data arising in this respect after the storage is no longer required, or limit the processing if there are legal storage obligations.

Please note that data transmission via the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) may be subject to security vulnerabilities. Complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.

1.3 In part, we use external service providers to process your data. We have carefully selected and commissioned them. They are bound by our instructions and are monitored regularly.

2. Collection of personal data when visiting our website

– Request content (specific page)

– Access status/HTTP-status code

– Amount of data transferred

– Website from which the request originates

2.3 The data is technically necessary for us to display our website to you and to ensure stability and security. The data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website.

These purposes include our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.

2.4 The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data to provide the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended. If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after no more than seven days. Storage exceeding this is possible. In this case, the IP addresses are deleted or isolated so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

2.5 The collection and storage of data described above is required for the operation of the website. There is therefore no possibility to object.

If you do not consent to this, we recommend that you leave the website.

3. Collection of further personal data through cookies when visiting our website

3.1 In addition to the above-mentioned data provided by your browser to our server, cookies are stored on your computer when you use our website.

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard drive assigned to the browser you use and through which certain information flows to the location that sets the cookie (here, by us). Cookies cannot execute programs or transmit viruses to your computer. Overall, they serve to make the internet content more user-friendly and effective and to analyze user behavior on our website.

When you visit our website, an information banner will inform you about the use of cookies and refers you to this data privacy policy.

3.2 There are different types of cookies of which the scope and functionality are explained below.

There are so-called "session cookies". These are automatically deleted when you close your browser. They store a so-called session ID with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the shared session. This allows your computer to be recognized when you return to our website. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close your browser.

In addition, there are persistent cookies that are automatically deleted after a specified period of time, which may vary depending on the cookie. You can delete cookies at any time in the security settings of your browser. We do not use persistent cookies!

3.3 The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies for analysis purposes, if you have given your consent in this regard, is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO.

3.4 The purpose of using cookies is to simplify the use of websites for users. On our website, we use both technically necessary cookies and cookies that allow us to analyze the surfing behavior of our users.

The analysis cookies are used to improve the quality of our website and its content.

Through the analysis cookies, we learn how the website is used and can thus constantly optimize our offer. The collected data, which are used to analyze surfing behavior, are anonymous by technical precautions. Therefore, an assignment of the data to the calling user no longer possible. The data is not stored together with other personal data of the users.

Our legitimate interest in the processing of personal data pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO also lies in these purposes.

4. Registration to our Newsletter

4.1 With your consent, you can subscribe to our newsletter, by which we send you our latest blog posts and interesting articles. We send our newsletter via Campaign Monitor. Campaign Monitor is based in Australia but operates in accordance with DS-GVO regulations.

4.2 We use the so-called double opt-in procedure for the registration to our newsletter. This means that after you have registered, we will send you an e-mail to the given e-mail address in which we will ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration, your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month. In addition, we store your IP-addresses and the times of registration and confirmation.

4.3 With our newsletter, an analysis possibility by so-called tracking pixels is available. This is a miniature graphic embedded in e-mails that are used in HTML format. This enables a statistical evaluation to be performed to recognize whether and when an e-mail was opened by an affected data subject and which links contained in the e-mail were accessed by the affected data subject.

This data is stored and evaluated by us to optimize the newsletter distribution and to adapt the content of future newsletters more effectively to the interests of the data subject. This personal data will not be disclosed to third parties. Affected persons are entitled at any time to cancel the relevant separate declaration of consent submitted via the double opt-in procedure. After cancellation, this personal data will be deleted by the processor. Unsubscribing from the newsletter is automatically interpreted as cancellation.

Please note that, for technical reasons, it is not possible for our company to send the newsletter without this analysis option. If you want to avoid the possibility of analysis, you can unfortunately not receive the newsletter.

4.4 The legal basis for the collection, storage and use of data is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DS-GVO.

4.5 Your e-mail address is the only mandatory information for sending the newsletter. The provision of name and gender is voluntary and is used to address you personally. After your confirmation, we store your data for the purpose of sending you the (possibly personalized) newsletter.

The purpose of the double opt-in procedure is to prove your registration and, if necessary, to clarify any possible misuse of your personal data.

4.6 You can revoke your consent to receive the newsletter at any time and unsubscribe from the newsletter. This is possible by using the unsubscribe link provided with each newsletter or by sending a message to

4.7 The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. Data will therefore be stored as long as the newsletter subscription is active.

5. Data protection for applications and in the application process

5.1 When you submit an application, we collect and process the personal data of applicants you have provided for the purpose of processing the application process.

5.2 Legal basis for the use is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a and lit. b DS-GVO.

5.3 Should an employment contract with you conclude, we will store the transmitted data for the purpose of the employment relationship in compliance with legal regulations.

Should a contract of employment not be concluded, the application documents shall be deleted after expiry of the two-month period for asserting any claims under the General Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz - AGG), unless deletion conflicts with other legitimate interests of the data processor. Other legitimate interests in this sense are, for example, a burden of proof in proceedings according to the AGG.
