Data Protection Officer
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter "data subject"). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
A data subject is that person whose personal data is processed by the controller.
Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organization, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data that consists of using that personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyze or predict aspects relating to that natural person's job performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or change of location.
As a responsible company, we do not use automated decision-making or profiling.
Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is stored separately and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
The controller is the person who decides on the purposes and means of the processing of personal data and also carries it out accordingly.
The processor is another natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
The recipient is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body to whom personal data are disclosed.
Consent of the data subject is any freely given indication of his or her wishes in an informed and unambiguous manner, in the form of a statement or other unambiguous affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
Personal data breach
A personal data breach is a breach of security that results in the destruction, loss or alteration, whether accidental or unlawful, or unauthorized disclosure of or access to personal data that has been transmitted, stored or otherwise processed.
The supervisory authority is an independent governmental body established by a Member State pursuant to Article 51 of the GDPR, which is responsible for monitoring compliance with data protection laws and regulations.
3. General information on data processing, including scope and purpose and legal basis
Scope of data processing
(1) We process personal data so that we can present our offers and services and so that you can use them. In doing so, we only collect personal data that is actually required.
Legal basis for data processing
(1) No data processing is possible without a corresponding legal basis. We take this so-called prohibition with reservation of permission very seriously.
(2) The DS-GVO provides for the following legal bases:
- Consent by the data subject (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DS-GVO),
- Performance of a contract and pre-contractual measures (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DS-GVO),
- Fulfillment of a legal obligation of the responsible person (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. c DS-GVO),
- Safeguarding vital interests of the data subject or another natural person (Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. d DS-GVO),
- Performance of a task in the public interest or for the exercise of official authority (Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. e DS-GVO),
- safeguarding legitimate interests of the controller or a third party (Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO).
Purpose of the data processing
(1) If the legal basis is not shown separately in the data protection declaration, the processing is carried out for one or more of the following purposes on the basis of the respective legal regulations mentioned:
- Implementation of pre-contractual and contractual measures, which takes place upon request (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DS-GVO).
- Safeguarding our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO).
- If you have given us your consent, on the basis of this consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a and Art. 7 DS-GVO).
(2) For a detailed description of the processing purposes, please refer to the explanations of the respective data processing below.
Transfer of your data
(1) We only transfer your data to external service providers to the extent that this is necessary and permissible for the fulfillment of our contractual and legal obligations or for the provision of our offer. If we therefore cooperate with order processors, we bind them contractually in accordance with the legal requirements under Art. 28 DS-GVO (contract on order processing). This ensures an appropriate level of data protection and data security.
(2) Insofar as the service providers are located outside the European Economic Area in individual cases, it is ensured that the necessary legal basis for this exists. We select these service providers carefully and check whether the transfer of data is necessary for the processing of the contractual relationship with you and whether the processing meets the legal requirements.
Duration of storage and deletion of data
(1) We process and store your personal data as long as it is necessary for the fulfillment of our legal and contractual obligations. This includes the storage of your personal data for the entire period of the contractual relationship with you.
(2) After expiration of the retention periods, your personal data will be deleted by us.
(3) The retention periods under commercial and tax law (including from the German Commercial Code, the German Fiscal Code and social security regulations) are two to ten years and serve retention and documentation purposes.
(4) Further details on the storage period and data deletion can be found in the explanations below on the respective data processing.
4. information about the processing of personal data.
We process your personal data through various technical means and, if necessary, also with the increase of further service providers. We would like to inform you about the specific details of the processing in the following points.

If you wish to view our website, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary for us to display our website to you and to ensure stability and security:
- IP address and service provider

(2) The data listed in paragraph 1 are also automatically stored in the log files (log file) of our server. The log data is stored separately from other data and can only be viewed by the hoster. As a matter of principle, we only store your data for as long as it is required for the respective purpose of processing. Your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. The legal basis for the processing of your data when visiting our website is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO, § 15 Telemediengesetz (TMG).
(1) In addition to the previously mentioned data, cookies are stored on your computer when you use our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard drive associated with the browser you are using and through which certain information flows to the body that sets the cookie. Cookies cannot execute programs or transfer viruses to your computer. They are used to make the website as a whole more user-friendly and effective.
(2) This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and functionality of which are explained below:
- Transient cookies
- Persistent cookies
(3) Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. These include, in particular, session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the joint 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 the browser.
(4) Persistent cookies are deleted automatically after a specified period of time, which may differ depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time.
(5) You can configure your browser settings according to your preferences and also refuse to accept third-party cookies or all cookies. Please note, however, that you may then not be able to use all functions of this website.
(1) When you contact us by e-mail or via the contact form on our website, the data you enter (your e-mail address and optionally your name and the other data you provide) will be stored by us at the time of sending in order to process your request.
(2) You can contact us at any time via the e-mail address provided on our website, which can be found in the imprint.
(3) You can consent to the processing of your personal data at any time by sending an e-mail to the person(s) listed in section 1 above. If you contact us directly by e-mail, you can object to the processing of your personal data at any time by the same means.

(5) If your contact aims at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing of your personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DS-GVO.
Presence in social networks
(1) We also operate online presences (fan pages) within social networks and platforms. We use them to present ourselves as a company, to communicate with you as our customers, partners or interested parties and to publish information and offers. Also, a possible analysis of the activity on our fan page can take place with statistical data provided to us by the providers of the social networks and platforms (so-called insights data). However, data processing only takes place as soon as you interact with our fan page. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO, as the data processing is based on our legitimate interests in more effective information and communication with you. In the case of contract-relevant communication with us, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DS-GVO is the legal basis.
(2) When calling up and using our fan page, your personal data is processed by the providers of the social networks and platforms themselves for analysis and advertising purposes. As the operator of the fan page, we have no influence on this and we do not receive any information from the respective providers about the exact scope of the data processing. The providers can thus create usage profiles, e.g. in order to place interest-based advertising. Cookies are usually stored on your devices for this purpose. Data processing may also take place outside the European Union. The US providers of the social networks and platforms are certified under the Privacy Shield, whereby they undertake to comply with EU data protection standards. The respective provider of the social networks and platforms is primarily responsible for data processing via the Fanpage. You also have the option of asserting your data subject rights (see "Your rights") directly against the providers of the social networks and platforms.
(3) Further information on data processing and your rights can be found in the privacy statements of the providers:
Transfer to third countries
In some cases, your data will be transferred to servers outside the EU by external service providers (so-called third countries). These can be, in particular, service providers in the areas of hosting and marketing, whereby we carefully select these service providers and contractually obligate them to comply with data protection in accordance with the legal requirements. Insofar as the service providers are located outside the EU, it is ensured that in these cases Binding Corporate Rules (BCR), or the standard data protection clauses within the meaning of Art. 46 DS-GVO apply, or an adequacy decision within the meaning of Art. 45 DS-GVO exists and thus an adequate level of data protection can be guaranteed.
The following companies receive data in third countries outside the European Union:
Data processing in the application procedure
(1) We offer you the opportunity to apply to us (e.g. by e-mail, post or online). In the following, we inform you about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected as part of the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing and use of your data will be carried out in accordance with applicable data protection law and all other statutory provisions and that your data will be treated in strict confidence.
(2) If you send us an application, we will process your associated personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes taken during interviews, etc.) insofar as this is necessary to decide on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is § 26 BDSG-neu under German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DS-GVO (general contract initiation) and - if you have given your consent - Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DS-GVO. The consent can be revoked at any time. Your personal data will only be passed on within our company to persons who are involved in processing your application. If the application is successful, the data you submitted will be stored in our data processing systems on the basis of Section 26 BDSG-neu and Art. 6 (1) lit. b p. 1 DS-GVO for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship.
(3) If we are unable to make you a job offer, you reject a job offer, withdraw your application, revoke your consent to data processing or request us to delete the data, the data you have submitted, including any remaining physical application documents, will be stored or retained (retention period) for a maximum of 6 months after completion of the application process in order to be able to trace the details of the application process in the event of discrepancies (Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO). Alternatively, we ask you to consent to longer storage.
(4) You can object to this storage at any time, provided that there are legitimate interests on your part that outweigh our interests.
(5) After expiry of the retention period, the data will be deleted, unless there is a legal obligation to retain the data or another legal reason for further storage.

Other legal storage obligations remain unaffected.
