4. Data Collection on Our Website
Some of the Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies serve to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit our website.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. When cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be limited.
Cookies, which are necessary to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions desired by you (e.g. shopping basket function), are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for technically error-free and optimized provision of his services. As far as other cookies (e.g. cookies for the analysis of your surfing behavior) are stored, these will be treated separately in this data protection declaration.
If you send us enquiries using the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact data you provided there, will be stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.
The data entered in the contact form is therefore processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal e-mail. The legality of the data processing processes carried out up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete, your consent for storage revoked or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.
We collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application process. Processing may also be carried out electronically.
This is particularly the case if an applicant submits corresponding application documents to us electronically, for example by e-mail or via a web form on the website.
If an employment contract results from the application, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with legal regulations.
If no employment contract results from the application, the application documents shall be deleted six months after completion of the filling of the vacancy, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller stand in the way of deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a burden of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG). After approval by the applicant, the data may also be stored for a longer period.
If you register for our offer, the data entered will be used for the purpose of using the offer. We may inform you by e-mail about information relevant to offers or registration, such as changes to the scope of offers or technical circumstances. The data collected can be seen in the input mask during registration.
If you leave comments on our website, we store your IP address so that we can react appropriately to illegal content (e.g. insults or other content relevant under criminal law). Users can subscribe to follow-up comments. For this we use the so-called "double-opt-in" method. This means that only after you have declared in a confirmation e-mail that you are the owner of the entered e-mail address by clicking on a link, follow-up comments will be sent to you automatically. You can unsubscribe from ongoing comment subscriptions at any time. The confirmation e-mail will contain notes on this.
We or our web space provider collect data about every access to our internet offer. This includes: the name of our website accessed, file, date and time of access, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user's operating system, transferred data volume, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.
It is used solely for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, safety and optimization of the offer. Nevertheless, we reserve the right to check these data subsequently if there is suspicion of illegal use on the basis of concrete indications.
Integrated Third-Party Content and Services
Our website may also include third-party content, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as "third party providers") are aware of the IP address of the users. The IP address is required to display this content. We endeavour to use only those contents whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the contents, but point out that we have no influence on it if the third party providers store the IP address e.g. for statistical purposes. As far as we know, we will inform you about this.
