Data Protection / prohibition of use

Personal data are all data that relate to you personally, e.g. name, address, email address or user behaviour. Please read the following statements carefully.

2.Use and disclosure of personal data
Collection of personal data when an email enquiry is sent
When our contact form is used we collect and store the first and last name and the email address for the purpose of answering your enquiry. Provision of a phone number for a return call is optional. If you send us a contact request by email, we collect and store the email address and the data contained in the email. The legal basis for this is Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR because we have a legitimate interest in responding to your enquiries. The data are deleted when the purpose of the storage has lapsed, i.e. after responding to your email/contact form enquiry or when the matter connected with the enquiry has been dealt with conclusively. You have the right to revoke your consent at any time without this affecting the lawfulness of the processing that has taken place on the basis of your consent.
If you apply to us in response to a job advertisement, your personal data such as names, address and telephone number will be collected by us and stored for the duration of the selection process. Your data will be used exclusively by authorised members of the human resources department or the management for processing as part of the selection process. Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties. If a specific position you are applying for has already been filled, but on the basis of your profile you are eligible for a job that becomes available later on or a job in a partner company or subsidiary, we will obtain your explicit consent before continuing to store or passing on your application, unless you have already consented in your application to such continued storage or passing on. If you submit a speculative application using our general contact email address, the content of your application email may be viewed by unauthorised personnel. It is our policy that the application documents must be forwarded unopened immediately to the human resources department and the incoming and forwarding email must be deleted. If you wish to avoid this, please contact us by phone before sending a speculative application so that you can be provided with contact details for the right person. The legal basis for this is Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR, since by sending the application documents you consent to the aforementioned processing of your data. The data will be deleted if you revoke your consent to the use of these data, without this affecting the lawfulness of the processing that has taken place on the basis of the consent, unless statutory retention periods apply. In such cases, the data will be blocked rather than deleted. Otherwise, application documents will be deleted after a period of 3 months after the end of the selection process, unless you have expressly agreed to your application data being kept for future job vacancies.
3. Collection of personal data when visiting our website
When you visit our website various server statistics are automatically stored, which your browser transmits to the server of our provider. Among other things, the name of the web page visited, the file, the date and time of the visit, the amount of data transferred, a notification of successful retrieval, the browser type and version, the user’s operating system, the referrer URL (the previously visited page), the IP address and the requesting provider are logged. These data are used for the statistical evaluation of visits to our website and cannot be assigned by us to specific persons. The IP address is anonymized.
These data are not merged with other data sources. The legal basis for the data collection is Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest in the collection of this data is based on the fact that I can optimise our content for users based on the data, for example, by preventing access from malicious pages or optimising access via certain browsers, and that the visitor can only access the site if the IP address is logged. In principle, you have the right to object to this data collection. Exceptionally, in this case objection is not feasible, since otherwise it would not be possible to use the site. The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer needed for the aforementioned purposes.

4. Data security
All information you submit to us will be stored on servers within the European Union. Unfortunately, the transfer of information via the internet is not completely secure, which is why we cannot guarantee the security of the data transmitted to our website via the internet. However, we secure our website and other systems through technical and organisational measures against loss, destruction, access, modification or dissemination of your data by unauthorised persons. In particular, your personal data are encrypted when transmitted by us. We use the coding system SSL (Secure Socket Layer).
5. No transfer of your personal data
We do not share your personal data with third parties, unless you have consented to the transfer of data or we are entitled or obliged to share data due to statutory provisions and/or official or judicial orders. This may, in particular, involve the provision of information for law enforcement purposes, security or enforcement of intellectual property rights.
