3. General in­for­ma­ti­on and mandatory in­for­ma­ti­on

Data pro­tec­tion

The operators of this website and its pages take the pro­tec­tion of your personal data very seriously. Hence, we handle your personal data as con­fi­den­ti­al in­for­ma­ti­on and in com­p­li­an­ce with the statutory data pro­tec­tion re­gu­la­ti­ons and this Data Pro­tec­tion De­cla­ra­ti­on.

Whenever you use this website, a variety of personal in­for­ma­ti­on will be collected. Personal data comprises data that can be used to per­so­nal­ly identify you. This Data Pro­tec­tion De­cla­ra­ti­on explains which data we collect as well as the purposes we use this data for. It also explains how, and for which purpose the in­for­ma­ti­on is collected.

We herewith advise you that the trans­mis­si­on of data via the Internet (i.e. through e-mail com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons) may be prone to security gaps. It is not possible to com­ple­te­ly protect data against third party access.

Re­vo­ca­ti­on of your consent to the pro­ces­sing of data

A wide range of data pro­ces­sing tran­sac­tions are possible only subject to your express consent. You can also revoke at any time any consent you have already given us. To do so, all you are required to do is sent us an informal no­ti­fi­ca­ti­on via e-mail. This shall be without prejudice to the la­w­ful­ness of any data collec­tion that occurred prior to your re­vo­ca­ti­on.

Right to object to the collec­tion of data in special cases; right to object to direct ad­ver­ti­sing (Art. 21 GDPR)

IN THE EVENT THAT DATA ARE PROCESSED ON THE BASIS OF ART. 6 SECT. 1 LIT. E OR F GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO AT ANY TIME OBJECT TO THE PRO­CES­SING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA BASED ON GROUNDS ARISING FROM YOUR UNIQUE SITUATION. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO ANY PROFILING BASED ON THESE PRO­VI­SI­ONS. TO DETERMINE THE LEGAL BASIS, ON WHICH ANY PRO­CES­SING OF DATA IS BASED, PLEASE CONSULT THIS DATA PRO­TEC­TION DE­CLA­RA­TI­ON. IF YOU LOG AN OBJECTION, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA, UNLESS WE ARE IN A POSITION TO PRESENT COM­PEL­LING PRO­TEC­TION WORTHY GROUNDS FOR THE PRO­CES­SING OF YOUR DATA, THAT OUTWEIGH YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS OR IF THE PURPOSE OF THE PRO­CES­SING IS THE CLAIMING, EX­ER­CISING OR DEFENCE OF LEGAL EN­T­IT­LE­MENTS (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21 SECT. 1 GDPR).

IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS BEING PROCESSED IN ORDER TO ENGAGE IN DIRECT AD­VER­TI­SING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO AT ANY TIME OBJECT TO THE PRO­CES­SING OF YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSES OF SUCH AD­VER­TI­SING. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING TO THE EXTENT THAT IT IS AF­FI­LIA­TED WITH SUCH DIRECT AD­VER­TI­SING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL SUB­SE­QUENT­LY NO LONGER BE USED FOR DIRECT AD­VER­TI­SING PURPOSES (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21 SECT. 2 GDPR).

Right to log a complaint with the competent su­per­vi­so­ry agency

In the event of vio­la­ti­ons of the GDPR, data subjects are entitled to log a complaint with a su­per­vi­so­ry agency, in par­ti­cu­lar in the member state where they usually maintain their domicile, place of work or at the place where the alleged violation occurred. The right to log a complaint is in effect re­gard­less of any other ad­mi­nis­tra­ti­ve or court pro­cee­dings available as legal recourses.

Right to data por­ta­bi­li­ty

You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we au­to­ma­ti­cal­ly process on the basis of your consent or in order to fulfil a contract be handed over to you or a third party in a commonly used, machine readable format. If you should demand the direct transfer of the data to another con­trol­ler, this will be done only if it is tech­ni­cal­ly feasible.

SSL and/or TLS en­cryp­ti­on

For security reasons and to protect the trans­mis­si­on of con­fi­den­ti­al content, such as purchase orders or inquiries you submit to us as the website operator, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS en­cryp­ti­on programme. You can recognise an encrypted con­nec­tion by checking whether the address line of the browser switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the ap­pearan­ce of the lock icon in the browser line.

If the SSL or TLS en­cryp­ti­on is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

In­for­ma­ti­on about, rec­tifi­ca­ti­on and era­di­ca­ti­on of data

Within the scope of the ap­p­lica­ble statutory pro­vi­si­ons, you have the right to at any time demand in­for­ma­ti­on about your archived personal data, their source and re­ci­pi­ents as well as the purpose of the pro­ces­sing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data rectified or era­di­ca­ted. If you have questions about this subject matter or any other questions about personal data, please do not hesitate to contact us at any time at the address provided in section “In­for­ma­ti­on Required by Law.”

Right to demand pro­ces­sing re­stric­tions

You have the right to demand the im­po­si­ti­on of re­stric­tions as far as the pro­ces­sing of your personal data is concerned. To do so, you may contact us at any time at the address provided in section “In­for­ma­ti­on Required by Law.” The right to demand re­stric­tion of pro­ces­sing applies in the following cases:

  • In the event that you should dispute the cor­rect­ness of your data archived by us, we will usually need some time to verify this claim. During the time that this in­ves­ti­ga­ti­on is ongoing, you have the right to demand that we restrict the pro­ces­sing of your personal data.
  • If the pro­ces­sing of your personal data was/is conducted in an unlawful manner, you have the option to demand the re­stric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your data in lieu of demanding the era­di­ca­ti­on of this data.
  • If we do not need your personal data any longer and you need it to exercise, defend or claim legal en­t­it­le­ments, you have the right to demand the re­stric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your personal data instead of its era­di­ca­ti­on.
  • If you have raised an objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be weighed against each other. As long as it has not been de­ter­mi­ned whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand a re­stric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your personal data.

If you have re­stric­ted the pro­ces­sing of your personal data, these data – with the exception of their archiving – may be processed only subject to your consent or to claim, exercise or defend legal en­t­it­le­ments or to protect the rights of other natural persons or legal entities or for important public interest reasons cited by the European Union or a member state of the EU.

Rejection of un­so­li­ci­ted e-mails

We herewith object to the use of contact in­for­ma­ti­on published in con­junc­tion with the mandatory in­for­ma­ti­on to be provided in section “In­for­ma­ti­on Required by Law” to send us pro­mo­tio­nal and in­for­ma­ti­on material that we have not expressly requested. The operators of this website and its pages reserve the express right to take legal action in the event of the un­so­li­ci­ted sending of pro­mo­tio­nal in­for­ma­ti­on, for instance via SPAM messages.

If you submit inquiries to us via our contact form, the in­for­ma­ti­on provided in the contact form as well as any contact in­for­ma­ti­on provided therein will be stored by us in order to handle your inquiry and in the event that we have further questions. We will not share this in­for­ma­ti­on without your consent.

The pro­ces­sing of these data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your request is related to the execution of a contract or if it is necessary to carry out pre-contrac­tu­al measures. In all other cases the pro­ces­sing is based on our le­gi­ti­ma­te interest in the effective pro­ces­sing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on your agreement (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR) if this has been requested.

The in­for­ma­ti­on you have entered into the contact form shall remain with us until you ask us to eradicate the data, revoke your consent to the archiving of data or if the purpose for which the in­for­ma­ti­on is being archived no longer exists (e.g. after we have concluded our response to your inquiry). This shall be without prejudice to any mandatory legal pro­vi­si­ons – in par­ti­cu­lar retention periods.

Google reCAPTCHA

We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (her­einaf­ter referred to as “reCAPTCHA”) on this website. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

The purpose of reCAPTCHA is to determine whether data entered on this website (e.g. in­for­ma­ti­on entered into a contact form) is being provided by a human user or by an automated program. To determine this, reCAPTCHA analyses the behaviour of the website visitors based on a variety of pa­ra­me­ters. This analysis is triggered au­to­ma­ti­cal­ly as soon as the website visitor enters the site. For this analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates a variety of data (e.g. IP address, time the website visitor spent on the site or cursor movements initiated by the user). The data tracked during such analyses are forwarded to Google.

reCAPTCHA analyses run entirely in the back­ground. Website visitors are not alerted that an analysis is underway.

Data are stored and analyzed on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a le­gi­ti­ma­te interest in the pro­tec­tion of the operator’s websites against abusive automated spying and against SPAM. If a re­spec­tive de­cla­ra­ti­on of consent has been obtained (e.g. consent to the archiving of cookies), the data will be processed ex­clu­si­ve­ly on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a DGDPR. Any such consent may be revoked at any time.

6. Custom Services

Job Ap­p­li­ca­ti­ons

We offer website visitors the op­por­tu­ni­ty to submit job ap­p­li­ca­ti­ons to us (e.g. via e-mail, via postal services on by sub­mit­ting the online job ap­p­li­ca­ti­on form). Below, we will brief you on the scope, purpose and use of the personal data collected from you in con­junc­tion with the ap­p­li­ca­ti­on process. We assure you that the collec­tion, pro­ces­sing and use of your data will occur in com­p­li­an­ce with the ap­p­lica­ble data privacy rights and all other statutory pro­vi­si­ons and that your data will always be treated as strictly con­fi­den­ti­al.

Scope and purpose of the collection of data

If you submit a job ap­p­li­ca­ti­on to us, we will process any af­fi­lia­ted personal data (e.g. contact and com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons data, ap­p­li­ca­ti­on documents, notes taken during job in­ter­views, etc.), if they are required to make a decision con­cerning the es­ta­blish­ment or an em­ploy­ment re­la­ti­ons­hip. The legal grounds for the afo­re­men­tio­ned are § 26 New GDPR according to German Law (Ne­go­tia­ti­on of an Em­ploy­ment Re­la­ti­ons­hip), Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR (General Contract Ne­go­tia­ti­ons) and – provided you have given us your consent – Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR. You may revoke any consent given at any time. Within our company, your personal data will only be shared with in­di­vi­du­als who are involved in the pro­ces­sing of your job ap­p­li­ca­ti­on.

If your job ap­p­li­ca­ti­on should result in your re­cruit­ment, the data you have submitted will be archived on the grounds of § 26 New GDPR and Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR for the purpose of im­ple­men­ting the em­ploy­ment re­la­ti­ons­hip in our data pro­ces­sing system.

Data Archiving Period

If we are unable to make you a job offer or you reject a job offer or withdraw your ap­p­li­ca­ti­on, we reserve the right to retain the data you have submitted on the basis of our le­gi­ti­ma­te interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) for up to 6 months from the end of the ap­p­li­ca­ti­on procedure (rejection or wi­th­dra­wal of the ap­p­li­ca­ti­on). Af­ter­wards the data will be deleted, and the physical ap­p­li­ca­ti­on documents will be destroyed. The storage serves in par­ti­cu­lar as evidence in the event of a legal dispute. If it is evident that the data will be required after the expiry of the 6-month period (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), deletion will only take place when the purpose for further storage no longer applies.

Longer storage may also take place if you have given your agreement (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR) or if statutory data retention re­qui­re­ments preclude the deletion.
