1. Relevant statutory foundations

In accordance with Art. 13 GDPR, we inform you of the legal basis for our data processing. If the legal basis is not mentioned in the data protection declaration, the following applies: The legal basis for obtaining consent is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) and Art. 7 GDPR, the legal basis for processing for the performance of our services and the implementation of contractual measures and answering inquiries is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR, the legal basis for processing to fulfill our legal obligations is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c) GDPR, and the legal basis for processing to safeguard our legitimate interests is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

 

2. Changes and updates to the privacy policy

We ask you to inform yourself regularly about the content of our data protection declaration. We will adapt the data protection declaration as soon as the changes to the data processing carried out by us make this necessary. We will inform you as soon as the changes require your cooperation (e.g. consent) or other individual notification.

 

3. Safety/Security measures

3.1. In accordance with Art. 32 GDPR, taking into account the state of the art, the implementation costs and the type, scope, circumstances and purposes of processing as well as the different probability of occurrence and severity of the risk for the rights and freedoms of natural persons, we make suitable technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk; The measures include, in particular, securing the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by controlling physical access to the data, as well as the access, input, transfer, ensuring availability and their separation. Furthermore, we have set up procedures that guarantee the exercise of data subject rights, deletion of data and reaction to data threats. Furthermore, we consider the protection of personal data already in the development or selection of hardware, software and procedures, in accordance with the principle of data protection through technology design and data protection-friendly default settings (Art. 25 GDPR).

3.2. The security measures include, in particular, the encrypted transmission of data between your browser and our server.

 

4. Cooperation with contract processors and third parties

4.1. If we disclose data to other persons and companies (contract processors or third parties) as part of our processing, transmit data to them or otherwise grant them access to the data, this is only done on the basis of legal permission (e.g. if the data is transmitted to third parties, such as to payment service providers, according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR is required to fulfill the contract), you have consented, a legal obligation provides for this or on the basis of our legitimate interests (e.g. when using agents, web hosts, etc.).

4.2. If we commission third parties to process data on the basis of a so-called “order processing contract”, this is done on the basis of Art. 28 GDPR.

 

5. Note on data transfer to the USA and other third countries

Our website includes tools from companies based in the USA or other third countries that are not secure under data protection law. If these tools are active, your personal data can be transferred to these third countries and processed there. We would like to point out that no data protection level comparable to that in the EU can be guaranteed in these countries. For example, US companies are obliged to surrender personal data to security authorities without you as the person concerned being able to take legal action against this. It cannot therefore be ruled out that US authorities (e.g. secret service) process, evaluate and permanently store your data on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.

 

6. Rights of data subjects

6.1. You have the right to request confirmation as to whether the data in question is being processed and to request information about this data as well as further information and a copy of the data in accordance with Art. 15 GDPR.

8. Right to object

You can object to the future processing of your data in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR at any time. The objection can in particular be made against processing for direct marketing purposes.

 

9. Deletion of data

9.1. The data processed by us will be deleted or restricted in their processing in accordance with Art. 17 and 18 GDPR. Unless expressly stated in this data protection declaration, the data stored by us will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for their intended purpose and the deletion does not conflict with any statutory retention requirements. If the data is not deleted because it is required for other legally permissible purposes, its processing will be restricted. This means that the data is blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be kept for commercial or tax reasons.

9.2. According to legal requirements, the storage takes place in particular for 6 years in accordance with § 257 para. 1 HGB (trading books, inventories, opening balance sheets, annual financial statements, commercial letters, accounting documents, etc.) and for 10 years in accordance with § 147 para. 1 AO (books, records, management reports, accounting documents, commercial and business letters, documents relevant for taxation, etc.).

We do not pass this data on without your consent.

11.2. User information can be saved in our customer relationship management system (“CRM system”) or a comparable request organization.

11.3. The data you send to us via contact requests will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.

15. Google Analytics

15.1 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.

15.2 This analysis tool is used on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

15.3. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online offer by users, to compile reports on the activities within this online offer and to provide us with other services related to the use of this online offer and the internet. In doing so, pseudonymous user profiles can be created from the processed data.

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 sent 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.

The Google Tag Manager is a tool with the help of which we can integrate tracking or statistics tools and other technologies on our website. The Google Tag Manager itself does not create any user profiles, does not save cookies and does not carry out any independent analyzes. It is only used to manage and play out the tools integrated via it. However, the Google Tag Manager records your IP address, which can also be transferred to the parent company of Google in the United States.

20.1. Data processing

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 (email address and / or your telephone number). Furthermore, the conference tools 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.

If content is exchanged, uploaded or made available in any other way within the tool, it is also stored on the server of the tool provider. Such content includes in particular cloud recordings, chat / instant messages, voicemails, uploaded photos and videos, files, whiteboards and other information that is shared while using the service.

Please note that we do not have full influence on the data processing operations of the tools used. Our options are largely based on the company policy of the respective provider. Further information on data processing by the conference tools can be found in the data protection declarations of the tools used, which we have listed under this text.

20.2. Purpose and legal basis

The conference tools are used to communicate with prospective or existing contractual partners or to offer certain services to our customers (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR). Furthermore, the use of the tools serves to generally simplify and accelerate communication with us or our company (legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR). If consent has been requested, the relevant tools are used on the basis of this consent; the consent can be revoked at any time with effect for the future.

20.3. Storage period

The data collected directly by us via the video and conference tools will be deleted from our systems as soon as you ask us to delete them, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies. Saved cookies remain on your device until you delete them. Mandatory statutory retention periods remain unaffected.

We have no influence on the storage period of your data, which is stored by the operators of the conference tools for their own purposes. For details, please contact the operators of the conference tools directly.

21. Handling of applicant data

21.1 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 of the Federal Data Protection Act according to German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR (general contract initiation) and – if you have given your consent – Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR. The consent can be revoked 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 on the basis of § 26 of the Federal Data Protection Act and Article 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR for the purpose of carrying out the employment relationship.

21.2 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 on the basis of 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.
