2.1 Personal data

Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as ‘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 one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

2.2. Data subject

Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.

2.3 Processing of personal data

Processing is any operation or set of operations, performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organisation, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

2.4 Restriction of processing

Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.

2.5 Profiling

Profiling is any automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, location or change of location.

2.6 Pseudonymisation

Pseudonymisation 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 additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

2.7. Controller or data controller

Controller or data controller shall mean the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data.

2.9 Recipient

The recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not it is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data in the course of a specific investigation, in accordance with Union or national law, shall not be considered as recipients.

2.10. Third parties

Third party means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or the processor, are authorized to process the personal data.

2.11. Consent

Consent shall mean any freely given specific and informed expression of the data subject’s will in an informed and unequivocal manner, in the form of a declaration or other unequivocal affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her consent to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

3. Use of cookies

In order to make visiting our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we use cookies on various pages. These are small text files that are stored on your computer. Most of the cookies we use are deleted from your hard drive at the end of the browser session (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your computer and enable us to recognize your computer during your next visit (so-called permanent cookies).

3.1 Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the website by the visitor is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

This is also our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f) DSGVO.

We have activated IP anonymisation on this website (anonymizeIp). However, this will cause your IP address to be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states which are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with further services related to website and internet use.

The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

You can also prevent the transfer of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link:

As an alternative to the browser plugin or within browsers on mobile devices, you can click on the following link to set an opt-out cookie that will prevent Google Analytics from collecting data within this website in the future (this opt-out cookie only works in this browser and only for this domain. If you delete the cookies in your browser, you will have to click this link again): Disable Google Analytics


4. Note on handling applicant data

After entering and transmitting your data, it is transferred directly to our servers via an encrypted connection. To protect your personal data held by us from unauthorized access and misuse, we have taken extensive, state-of-the-art technical and organizational measures. Our security procedures are regularly reviewed and adapted to technological progress.

Your personal data provided to us in the context of an application will be treated in strict confidence and will only be processed or used by us for the purpose of processing your application.

We will delete your data after six months from the date of the decision about the job assignment, unless you assert a legal claim against the decision (in this case, the deletion will take place after the conclusion of the procedure concerning your claim).

The data will be processed to check your application prospects and to select an applicant, if necessary also for legal prosecution.

Should you be considered for a later job assignment, we will only delete your data after two years from the start of storage if you give us your consent. You can revoke this consent later with effect for the future. Such a revocation will mean that you will have to resubmit your data for the later job posting if you wish to apply again. You will not suffer any other disadvantages (in particular in the selection of the applicant) as a result of this revocation.

The legal basis for data processing is § 26 BDSG 2018.


5. Newsletter

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Further data will not be collected or only on a voluntary basis. We use these data exclusively for sending the requested information.

The processing of the data entered in the newsletter registration form is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address as well as its use for sending the newsletter at any time, e.g. via the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

This website uses SendinBlue to send newsletters. The provider is SendinBlue SAS, 55 rue d’Amsterdam, 75008 Paris, France. SendinBlue is a service that allows you to organise and analyse the sending of newsletters. The information you enter to subscribe to the newsletter (e.g. e-mail address) is stored on SendinBlue’s servers.

Our newsletters sent with SendinBlue enable us to analyse the behaviour of the newsletter recipients. This can include an analysis of how many recipients opened the newsletter message and how often each link in the newsletter was clicked. All links in the e-mail are so-called tracking links, which allow your clicks to be counted.

If you don’t want SendinBlue to analyse your newsletter, you must unsubscribe. To do this, we provide a link in every newsletter message. Furthermore, you can also withdraw your consent at any time with future effect by sending an e-mail to the address given in our imprint.

The data you provide us with for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of SendinBlue after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. This does not affect data stored by us for other purposes.

6. Use of services

6.1 Google Maps

To make it easier for you to find our location we use Google Maps, a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Please read here how Google complies with data protection regulations also with regard to transmission to the USA:

We use Google Maps on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1. p. 1 f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest is to improve the offer on our website and to provide you with better customer service.

As soon as this service is called up on our site, a connection is established with Google, which transmits your IP address to Google. If you are already logged in to Google, information about the search can be assigned to your user account. Please log out of Google before to prevent this.


6.2 YouTube

YouTube is a video portal of YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA, hereinafter only referred to as “YouTube”.

Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, is responsible for the processing of data for users who have their habitual residence in the European Union.

Please read here how Google complies with data protection regulations also with regard to transmission to the USA:

We use YouTube on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1. p. 1 f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest is to improve the offer on our website.

In order to protect your data, the function “Extended data protection” has been activated. A connection to YouTube is only established once the video has been clicked on. At least the IP address is transmitted to YouTube.

If you are already logged in to YouTube, the connection information is associated with your account. Please log out of YouTube first to prevent this from happening.


7. social media

We maintain publicly accessible profiles in social networks. You can find the social networks we use in detail below.

Social networks such as Xing, LinkedIn, etc. can usually analyse your user behaviour comprehensively when you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. LikeButtons or advertising banners). By visiting our social media sites, numerous data protection-relevant processing procedures are triggered. In detail:

If you are logged in to your social media account and visit our social media presence, the operator of the social media portal can assign this visit to your user account. However, your personal data may also be collected if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portal. In this case, this data is collected, for example, via cookies that are stored on your end device or by recording your IP address.

With the help of the data collected in this way, the operators of the social media portals can create user profiles in which your preferences and interests are stored. In this way, interest-related advertising can be displayed to you both inside and outside the respective social media presence. If you have an account with the respective social network, interest-based advertising can be displayed on all devices on which you are or were logged in.

Please also note that we cannot track all processing on the social media portals. Depending on the provider, further processing may therefore be carried out by the operators of the social media portals. For details, please refer to the terms of use and data protection regulations of the respective social media portals.

7.1 Legal basis

Our social media appearances are designed to ensure the most comprehensive presence possible on the Internet. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The analysis processes initiated by the social networks may be based on different legal bases, which must be stated by the operators of the social networks (e.g. consent within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO).

7.2 Person responsible and assertion of rights

If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g. Xing), we are jointly responsible with the operator of the social media platform for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. You can basically assert your rights (information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data transferability and complaint) both against us and against the operator of the respective social media portal (e.g. against Xing).

Please note that despite the joint responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have full influence on the data processing procedures of the social media portals. Our possibilities depend largely on the corporate policy of the respective provider.

This website uses links to our presence on social media sites. The data protection and liability regulations of the respective providers apply to these presences, which you can access as described below.
