Use for Information Purposes
If you use the website without transmitting any other data to us (e.g. by registration or use of the contact form), we will only collect the technically required data, which are transmitted automatically to our server (e.g. IP address, date and time of the request, browser type and operating system). This is a technical requirement to allow us showing you our website. If personal data are affected in this context, Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR is the legal basis for the collection.
Most of the web browsers accept cookies automatically. You may erase stored cookies at any time via the settings of your web browser. You may also adjust the settings of your web browser to bar the storing of cookies. Then, however, not all the functions of our website might be available.
On our website, you may use a contact form to enter personal data. If you use the contact form, we collect and store the data you enter in the input screen (e.g. second name, first name, email address). There will be no forwarding to any third parties.
If consent is given, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. If your request has the purpose of preparing the signing of a contract, Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR is an additional legal basis. We use the data to process and answer your request only.
You may file your application on our website. If you apply, we collect and store the data you enter in the input screen. There will be no forwarding. The use of the application function is possible with your consent only. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. The exclusive purpose of the collection of the application data is to process your application.
On our website, you can subscribe to a newsletter. If you subscribe to the newsletter, we collect and store the data you enter in the input screen (e.g. second name, first name, email address). There will be no forwarding to any third parties. The subscription to the newsletter is possible with your consent only. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. We use the data only for sending newsletters.
We link on this website to our presence in social networks or set social plugins such as "Share" or "Like" buttons. When you access our website, no data is transmitted to the operator of the respective social network, but only when you actively follow the link to our profile on the respective social network or click on the social plugin.
The following categories of data are processed by the respective social network:
- IP address
- Date, time
- Visited website
If you are logged in to your user account on a social network when you access our profile page, the operator of the social network may be able to assign the information collected during your visit to your personal account.
If you interact via a "Share" or "Like" button of the respective network, this information can also be assigned to the user's personal account and published if necessary.
If you want to avoid that the collected information can be directly assigned to your user account, you have to log out of the respective social network before accessing our profile page or using the social plugin.
You can also configure the user account on the respective social network accordingly.
If you access our profile page on a social network, the operator of the social network can also set cookies on your end device, regardless of whether you have an account with the network or whether you are logged in there. Cookies are data packets that mark the user's end devices with a specific identifier. Cookies are set primarily to enable us to display personalized advertising to visitors to social networks, including our profile pages. This is done, for example, by showing the user ads on social network pages from social network advertising partners whose websites the user had previously visited. Cookies also enable us to compile statistics on the use of our profile page (e.g. number of page views, user categories). If we receive such statistical analyses from the operator of the social network, the data is previously anonymised by the operator, i.e. it is not possible for us to assign usage data to an individual user.
The purpose of processing your data on our profile page with the respective social network is to inform you about our offers and services and to answer any enquiries on our profile page. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 par. 1 lit. f GDPR. In this respect, public relations work is covered by our legitimate interests within the meaning of the provision. If you use a social plugin integrated by us, the legal basis is your consent according to Art. 6 par. 1 lit. a GDPR.
Private messages that you send us via social networks will be deleted 2 years after the last communication with you. Public posts from you (e.g. in our timeline) will always remain permanently published until you explicitly request their deletion.
We reserve the right to delete illegal content published by users on our profile page on the respective social network, e.g. copyright infringements or statements relevant under criminal law.
In accordance with the case law of the European Court of Justice, we are jointly responsible with the operator of the respective social network for the operation of our profile page or the social plugin with regard to compliance with data protection regulations. Within this framework, the operator of the social network provides the corresponding IT infrastructure as well as the social network website and is basically the primary contact person when it comes to processing your data on the social network pages (e.g. information or deletion). However, you can also assert your legal rights against us. In this case we will forward your requests to the operator of the social network.
US providers (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, LinkedIn) are transmitting to the US. By concluding so-called EU standard contractual clauses, these providers have undertaken to comply with a level of data protection that essentially corresponds to the European level.
Please note, however, that the existence of an appropriate data protection standard for providers outside the EU / EEA – even in the case of the conclusion of EU standard contractual clauses – cannot be guaranteed in every case.

As the data subject, you also have the right to restriction of the processing if e.g. you think that the personal data would be incorrect.

As the data subject, you have the right to receive your personal data in a structured, customary and machine-readable format.

As the data subject, you have the right to raise objection against the processing of certain of your personal data at any time for reasons resulting from your situation. In case of direct marketing, you as the data subject have the right to raise objection against the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such marketing at any time; this also applies to the profiling associated with such direct marketing.
- Right to withdraw your consent relating to data privacy
You may withdraw a consent to the processing of your personal data with effect in the future at any time. The legality of the processing made until such withdrawal, however, is not affected by the foregoing.
Moreover, you may lodge complaint with a data protection supervisory authority if you feel that the data processing does not comply with data protection regulations.
We use Google Analytics to analyse and improve the use of our website.
Google Analytics is a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses what is known as “cookies”, i.e. text files that are stored on your computer to allow an analysis of your use of the website. As a rule, the information on your use of the website generated by the cookie is transmitted to and stored on a server of Google in the USA. In the event of activation of the IP-anonymization on this website, however, your IP address will be truncated previously in member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is transferred to a server of Google in the USA and is truncated there. On the instruction of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website in order to prepare reports on the website activities and to provide other services for the website operator relating to website use and internet use.
The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics will not be combined with other data of Google.
You can prevent the storing of the cookies by an appropriate setting of your browser software; please note, however, that in this case you might not be able to use the full range of all functions of this website. Moreover, you can prevent the collection of the data (incl. your IP address) generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website for Google as well as the processing of such data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en
We use Google Analytics with the extension “anonymizeIp()”. This is to truncate the IP addresses (so-called IP-masking). Thus, a connection to specific persons can be ruled out.
By concluding so-called EU standard contractual clauses, Google has undertaken to comply with a level of data protection that essentially corresponds to the European level. Please note, however, that the existence of an appropriate data protection standard for providers outside the EU / EEA – even in the case of the conclusion of EU standard contractual clauses – cannot be guaranteed in every case.
The legal basis for the processing of data using Google Analytics is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR.
