Withdrawal of your consent to data processing

The legality of the data processing carried out up to the time of revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

The competent supervisory authority with regard to data protection issues is the state data protection officer of the federal state in which our company is based. The following link provides a list of data protection officers and their contact details: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract handed over to yourself or to third parties. It is provided in a machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of data to another person responsible, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.

Right to information, correction, blocking, deletion

Within the framework of applicable legal provisions, you have the right to receive information free of charge about your stored personal data, the origin of the data, its recipients and the purpose of data processing and, if applicable, a right to correct, block or delete this data. You can contact us at any time using the contact options listed in the legal notice in this regard and also if you have any further questions on the subject of personal data.

SSL or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content that you send to us as the site operator, our website uses SSL or TLS encryption. This means that data that you submit via this website cannot be read by third parties. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the “https://” address line of your browser and by the lock icon in the browser line.

Registering on this website

You can register on our website to use certain functions. The transmitted data is used exclusively for the purpose of using the respective offer or service. Mandatory information requested during registration must be provided in full. Otherwise, we will decline the registration.

In the event of important changes, for example for technical reasons, we will inform you by email. The email will be sent to the address provided during registration.

The data entered during registration is processed on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can withdraw your consent at any time. An informal notification by e-mail is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of the data processing that has already been carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

We store the data collected during registration for the period that you are registered on our website. Your data will be deleted if you cancel your registration. Statutory storage periods remain unaffected.

server log files
 
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
 
Browser type and browser version
Operating system used
referrer URL
host name of the accessing computer
Time of server request
IP address
 
contact form

Data submitted via the contact form, including your contact details, is stored in order to be able to process your request or to be available for follow-up questions. This data will not be passed on without your consent.

The data entered in the contact form is processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can withdraw your consent at any time. An informal notification by e-mail is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of the data processing operations carried out up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Data submitted via the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or there is no longer any need to store data. Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

Newsletter data

We need an email address from you to send our newsletter. Verification of the email address provided is necessary and consent must be given to receipt of the newsletter. Additional data is not collected or is voluntary. The data is used exclusively for sending the newsletter.

The data provided when subscribing to the newsletter will be processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can withdraw your consent at any time. To cancel, simply send an informal message by e-mail or unsubscribe via the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

Data entered to set up the subscription will be deleted if you unsubscribe. If this data has been transmitted to us for other purposes and elsewhere, it will remain with us.

youtube

Our website uses plugins from YouTube to integrate and display video content. The provider of the video portal is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

When you call up a page with an integrated YouTube plugin, a connection to YouTube's servers is established. This tells YouTube which of our pages you have visited.

YouTube can associate your surfing behavior directly with 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 presenting our online offerings in an appealing way. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

Details on how to handle user data can be found in YouTube's privacy policy at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

cookies

Our website uses cookies. These are small text files that your web browser stores on your device. Cookies help us make our offering more user-friendly, effective and secure.

Some cookies are “session cookies.” Such cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your browser session. However, other cookies remain on your device until you delete them yourself. Such cookies help us recognize you when you return to our website.

With a modern web browser, you can monitor, restrict or prevent the setting of cookies. Many web browsers can be configured so that cookies are automatically deleted when you close the program. Deactivating cookies may result in limited functionality of our website.

Cookies, which are necessary to carry out electronic communication processes or to provide certain functions you have requested (e.g. shopping cart), are set on the basis of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and smooth provision of our services. If other cookies (e.g. for analysis functions) are set, these are dealt with separately in this privacy policy.

Google Analytics

Our website uses features of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider of the web analysis service is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses “cookies.” These are small text files that your web browser stores on your device and enable an analysis of website usage. Information generated by cookies about your use of our website is transmitted to a Google server and stored there. The server location is usually the USA.

Google Analytics cookies are set on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize our website and, if applicable, advertising.

IP anonymization

We use Google Analytics in conjunction with the IP anonymization function. It ensures that Google abbreviates your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before transmission to the USA. There may be exceptional cases in which Google transmits the full IP address to a server in the USA and abbreviates it there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to create reports on website activity and to provide us with other services related to website activity and Internet usage. There is no merging of the IP address transmitted by Google Analytics with other data from Google.

Browser plugin

You can prevent cookies from being set by your web browser. However, this could restrict some functions of our website. You can also prevent Google from collecting data relating to your use of the website, including your IP address and subsequent processing. This is possible by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Objection to data collection

You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent your data from being collected when you visit our website in the future: Deactivate Google Analytics.

Details on how Google Analytics handles user data can be found in Google's privacy policy: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de.

Order processing

In order to fully comply with legal data protection requirements, we have concluded an order processing contract with Google.

Demographics in Google Analytics

Our website uses the “demographic characteristics” feature of Google Analytics. It can be used to create reports that contain statements about the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and from visitor data from third parties. It is not possible to assign the data to a specific person. You can turn off this feature at any time. This is possible via the ad settings in your Google account or by generally prohibiting Google Analytics from collecting your data, as explained in the “Objection to data collection” section.

Google AdSense

Our website uses Google AdSense. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google AdSense is used to integrate advertisements and sets cookies. Cookies are small text files that your web browser stores on your device to analyze the use of the website. Google AdSense also uses web beacons. Web beacons are invisible graphics that enable an analysis of visitor traffic on our website.

Information generated by cookies and web beacons is transmitted to Google servers and stored there. The server is located in the USA. Google can pass on this information to contract partners. However, Google will not combine your IP address with other data stored by you.

AdSense cookies are stored on the basis of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. As a website operator, we have a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize our website and advertising.

With a modern web browser, you can monitor, restrict and prevent the setting of cookies. Deactivating cookies may result in limited functionality of our website. By using our website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner described above and for the purpose set out above.

Google Web Fonts
 
This site uses so-called web fonts, which are provided by Google, to uniformly display fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to correctly display texts and fonts. For this purpose, the browser you use must connect to Google's servers. As a result, Google becomes aware that our website has been accessed via your IP address. Google Web Fonts are used in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offerings. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
 
If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.
 
You can find more information about Google Web Fonts at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google's privacy policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.
 
Google Maps
 
This site uses the Google Maps map service via an API. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. To use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to save your IP address. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transfer.
 
Google Maps is used in the interest of presenting our online offerings in an appealing way and making it easy to find the locations we have specified on the website. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

Google guarantees that the EU's data protection requirements are also met when processing data in the USA.

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in improving the quality of our website.

Google provides further information about the possible plug-ins and their respective functions at

https://developers.google.com/+/web/

ready for you.

If the plug-in is stored on one of the pages of our website that you visit, your Internet browser downloads a representation of the plug-in from Google's servers in the USA. For technical reasons, it is necessary for Google to process your IP address. In addition, the date and time of your visit to our website are also recorded.

If you are logged in to Google while you visit one of our websites with the plug-in, the information collected by the plug-in about your specific visit will be recognized by Google. Google may assign the information collected in this way to your personal user account there. For example, if you use the so-called “share” button from Google, this information is stored in your Google user account and may be published via the Google platform. If you want to prevent this, you must either log out of Google before visiting our website or make the appropriate settings in your Google user account.

Google provides further information about the collection and use of data as well as your rights and protection options in this regard at

For technical reasons, it is necessary for Facebook to process your IP address. In addition, the date and time of your visit to our website are also recorded.

If you are logged in to Facebook while you visit one of our websites with the plug-in, the information collected by the plug-in about your specific visit will be recognized by Facebook. Facebook may assign the information collected in this way to your personal user account there. For example, if you use the so-called Facebook “Like” button, this information is stored in your Facebook user account and may be published via the Facebook platform. If you want to prevent this, you must either log out of Facebook before visiting our website or prevent the Facebook plug-in from being blocked from loading by using an add-on for your Internet browser.

Facebook provides further information about the collection and use of data and your rights and protection options in this regard in the

https://www.facebook.com/policy.php

Online job applications/publication of job advertisements
We offer you the opportunity to apply to us via our website. With these digital applications, your application and application data is collected and processed electronically by us to process the application process.

The legal basis for this processing is Section 26 (1) (1) BDSG in conjunction with Article 88 (1) GDPR.

If an employment contract is concluded after the application process, we will store the data you provided during the application process in your personnel file for the purpose of the usual organizational and administrative process — in compliance with further legal obligations, of course.

The legal basis for this processing is also Section 26 (1) (1) BDSG in conjunction with Article 88 (1) GDPR.

If an application is rejected, we automatically delete the data submitted to us two months after notification of the rejection. However, the data will not be deleted if, due to legal provisions, for example due to evidentiary obligations under the AGG, require longer storage of up to four months or until the conclusion of legal proceedings.

In this case, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR and § 24 para. 1 no. 2 BDSG. Our legitimate interest lies in legal defense and enforcement.

If you expressly consent to the storage of your data for a longer period of time, for example for your inclusion in an applicant or interested party database, the data will be further processed on the basis of your consent. The legal basis is then Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR. However, you can of course withdraw your consent at any time in accordance with Article 7 (3) GDPR by notifying us with effect for the future.


Google AdWords with conversion tracking
On our website, we use the Google AdWords advertising component and so-called conversion tracking. This is a service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter just referred to as “Google”.

Through certification in accordance with the EU-US Privacy Shield (“EU-US Privacy Shield”)

https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

Google guarantees that the EU's data protection requirements are also met when processing data in the USA.

We use conversion tracking to advertise our offer in a targeted manner. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our website.

If you click on an ad placed by Google, the conversion tracking we use saves a cookie on your device. These so-called conversion cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are otherwise not used for your personal identification.

If the cookie is still valid and you visit a specific page of our website, both we and Google can evaluate that you clicked on one of our ads placed on Google and that you were then redirected to our website.

Google uses the information collected in this way to compile statistics for us about visits to our website. This also provides us with information about the number of users who have clicked on our ad (s) and the pages of our website that have subsequently been accessed. However, neither we nor third parties who also use Google AdWords will be able to identify you in this way.

By making the appropriate settings in your Internet browser, you can also prevent or restrict the installation of cookies. At the same time, you can delete cookies that have already been saved at any time. However, the steps and measures required for this depend on the specific Internet browser you are using. If you have any questions, please use the help function or documentation of your Internet browser or contact its manufacturer or support.

Google also offers at

Google Remarketing or Google's “Similar Audiences” component
We use the remarketing or “similar target groups” function on our website. This is a service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter just referred to as “Google”.

Through certification in accordance with the EU-US Privacy Shield (“EU-US Privacy Shield”)

https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

Google guarantees that the EU's data protection requirements are also met when processing data in the USA.

We use this feature to place interest-based, personalized advertising on third-party websites that also participate in Google's advertising network.

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our website.

To make this advertising service possible, Google stores a cookie with a sequence of numbers on your device via your Internet browser during your visit to our website. This cookie records both your visit and use of our website anonymously. However, personal data is not passed on. If you then visit the website of a third party who in turn also uses Google's advertising network, advertisements may appear that are related to our website or to our offers there.

To permanently deactivate this function, Google offers for the most common Internet browsers via

https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin

a browser plug-in.

The use of cookies from certain providers can also be used, for example via

http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices

or

http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/

be deactivated via opt-out.

Through the so-called cross-device marketing Google may also be able to track your usage behavior across multiple devices, so that you may be shown interest-based, personalized advertising even if you change your device. However, this requires that you have agreed to link your browsing history to your existing Google account.
