Scope of application
The protection of your personal data is a serious matter for us. In principle, the use of this website is possible without any indication of personal data. However, if you want to use special services of our enterprise via this website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain consent from you.
As the controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, you are also free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.
Our data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European Directive and Ordinance Maker when issuing the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). It should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terminology used in advance.
- Personal data: Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. 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.
- Data subject: Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.
- Processing: 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.
- Restriction of processing: Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.
- Profiling: Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data that consists of using such 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.
- Pseudonymization: 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 such additional information is kept separate and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
- Controller or data controller: Controller or data controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its designation may be provided for under Union or Member State law.
- Processor: Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the Controller.
- Recipient: Recipient means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom Personal Data is disclosed, whether or not a third party. However, authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation mandate under Union or Member State law are not considered recipients.
- Third Party: Third party means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body other than the Data Subject, the Controller, the Processor and the persons who are authorized to process the Personal Data under the direct responsibility of the Controller or the Processor.
- Consent: Consent shall mean any freely given indication of the data subject’s wishes for the specific case in an informed and unambiguous manner, in the form of a statement or any 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.
3. Collection of general data and information
Our website collects a series of general data and information with each call by you or an automated system. This data is stored in the server log files. The following data may be collected: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of an access, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about the data subject. This information is rather required in order to (1) correctly deliver the contents of our website, (2) optimize the contents of our website as well as the advertising for these, (3) ensure the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website as well as (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. Therefore, we statistically evaluate this anonymously collected data and information on one hand, and on the other hand, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.
4. Legal basis of the processing
Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for our company for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for a delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which a processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR.
Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47, second sentence, GDPR).
5. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party.
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest is the performance of our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.
6. Legal or contractual requirements to provide the personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision
We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner).
Sometimes, in order to conclude a contract, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded.
Before providing personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact us. We inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences of not providing the personal data would be.
7. Contact possibility via the website
Due to legal regulations, this website contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our company as well as an immediate communication with us, which includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If you contact us by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data you provide will be stored automatically. Such personal data transmitted by you to us on a voluntary basis (e.g. name, address, telephone number, e-mail address) are stored solely for the purpose of processing or contacting you. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties.
8. Data protection during applications and the application process
Explicitly, no applications are possible via our website. Should a job seeker nevertheless apply online by speculative application, his or her data will neither be processed nor stored. The data will be deleted immediately after a short feedback on the application and will not be transferred to any third parties.
9. Disclosure of data
We will only share your personal information with third parties if:
- you have given your express consent for this ( GDPR Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a)
- it is legally permissible and necessary for the handling of contractual relationships with you ( GDPR Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b)
- there is a legal obligation for the disclosure ( GDPR Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. c)
Further transfers of your personal data to third parties do not take place.
10. Duration for which the personal data is stored
In accordance with the principles of data avoidance and data economy, we store personal data for no longer than the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of this period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfillment or initiation of the contract.
11. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data
We process and store your personal data only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or if this has been provided for by the European Directive and Regulation Maker or another legislator in laws or regulations to which we are subject.
If the purpose of storage no longer applies or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation or another competent legislator expires, the personal data will be deleted routinely and in accordance with the statutory provisions.
In a cookie, information is stored that arises in each case in connection with the specific end device used. However, this does not mean that we thereby obtain direct knowledge of your identity. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID, i.e. a unique identifier consisting of a string of characters by which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser with which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited websites and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified via the unique cookie ID.
The data processed by cookies is necessary for the aforementioned purposes to protect our legitimate interests as well as those of third parties pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f GDPR.
Most browsers accept cookies quite automatically. However, you can prevent the setting of cookies by our website by making the appropriate setting in your Internet browser and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If you deactivate the setting of cookies in your Internet browser, you may no longer be able to use all the functions of our website to their full extent.
13. Analysis tools
We do not use any analysis tools on this website.
14. Social media plug-ins
We do not use any social media plug-ins on this website.
