Revoking your consent for data processing
Many data processing procedures may only be carried out with your express consent. You can revoke consent you have granted at any time.

Right to object to data collection in special cases, and right to object to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)
If data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f GDPR, you have the right to object to processing of your personal data at any time for reasons resulting from your specific situation; this also applies to any profiling based on these provisions. Please see this Data Privacy Declaration for the legal basis used to justify processing. If you submit an objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can show mandatory and protected grounds for our processing that outweigh your interests, rights, and freedoms, or if processing serves to assert, exercise, or defend against legal claims (objection in accordance with Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR).
If your personal information is processed for the purpose of direct advertising, you have the right to object against processing of your personal information for the purpose of such advertisements; this also applies to profiling, if it is connected to such direct advertising.

Right to data portability
You have the right to receive data we process through an automated procedure based on your consent or to fulfill a contract, delivered to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request that data be transmitted directly to another controller, we will only do so if this is technically feasible.
SSL and TLS encryption
This website uses SSL or TLS encryption for reasons of security, and to protect the transmission of confidential content such as orders or inquiries you send to us as the page operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection because the address line in your browser will switch from “http://” to “https://” and you will see a lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be accessed by third parties.
Information, blockage, deletion and rectification
You have the right to receive information on your saved personal data at any time within the framework of applicable law, as well as the origin of that data, data recipients, and the purpose of data processing. You may also have the right to have this data corrected, blocked, or deleted. You can contact us at any time using the address provided in the Legal Notice for these and other questions related to your personal data.
Right to restrict processing
You have the right to request that processing of your personal data be restricted. You can contact us at any time using the address provided in the Legal Notice for this purpose. You have the right to restrict processing in the following cases:
- If you dispute the correctness of your personal data we have saved, we will typically need time to review your objection. During the review, you have the right to request that processing of your personal data be restricted.
- If your personal data was or is being processed in an illegal manner, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.
- If we no longer require your personal data, but you require the data to carry out, defend against, or assert legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of processing for your personal data instead of deletion.
- If you have submitted an objection in accordance with Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR, your interests and our own must be weighed against one another. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests take precedence, you have the right to request that processing of your personal data be restricted.
If you have restricted processing of your personal data, this data may only be processed – apart from saving it – with your consent or to assert, exercise, or defend against legal claims, or to protect the rights of another legal or natural person, in order to safeguard a significant public interest of the European Union or its member states.
Objection to advertising e-mails
We hereby expressly reject the use of contact data published under our legal notification obligations for mailing advertisements or informational materials which we have not requested. The operator of this website hereby expressly reserves the right to take legal action if they receive unwanted advertisement mailings, for instance as spam e-mails.
3. Data collection on our website
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain saved on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit our website.
You can change your browser settings so you will be informed when cookies are saved and can only allow cookies in individual instances. You can also exclude acceptance of cookies in all cases or in certain cases, and activate automatic deletion of cookies when you close your browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functions of the website may be limited.
Cookies required to carry out electronic communication or provide certain functions you request (such as the shopping cart function) are saved in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in saving cookies to ensure the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. If other cookies (such as cookies used to analyze your surfing behavior) are saved, these are dealt with separately in our Data Privacy Declaration.
Server log files
The page provider automatically collects and saves information in so-called log files, which your browser transmits to us automatically. These are:
- Browser type and version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server inquiry
- IP address
This data is not combined with data from other sources.
This data is recorded based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in providing its website free from technical errors and in an optimized manner – the server log files must be created for this reason.
If you send us an inquiry using the contact form, your information from the contact form and the contact data you provide there is saved by us for the purpose of processing your inquiry and for follow-up questions. We do not provide this data to third parties without your consent.
Data entered into the contact form, therefore, is processed solely based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. An e-mail notification to us is sufficient to do so, with no formal requirements. The legality of data processing carried out up to the time the revocation was submitted shall remain unaffected by it.
We will retain data entered by you into the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent to save it, or until the purpose for which data was saved no longer applies (for instance after we have finished processing your inquiry). Mandatory legal regulations – in particular retention periods – shall remain unaffected.
Inquiry via e-mail, phone, or fax
If you contact us via e-mail, phone or fax, your inquiry and all associated personal data (name, inquiry) will be saved and processed for the purpose of handling your request or concern. We do not provide this data to third parties without your consent.
This data is processed based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, insofar as your inquiry is associated with fulfilling a contract or is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR) and/or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR), since we have a legitimate interest in effectively processing inquiries sent to us.
We will retain data you provide to us with a contact inquiry until you request its deletion, revoke your consent to save it, or until the purpose for which data was saved no longer applies (for instance after we have finished processing your concern or question). Mandatory legal regulations – in particular statutory retention periods – shall remain unaffected.
4. Analytic tools and advertising
This website uses functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files saved on your computer that facilitate an analysis of your use of our website. The information provided by these cookies regarding your use of our website is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
Google analytics cookies are saved and the analytic tool is used on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its website and advertisements.
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. Because of this, your IP address will be abbreviated by Google within member states of the European Union or other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before transmission to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will your full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA, where it will be shortened. Google will use this information to evaluate your site usage, create reports regarding website activity, and complete additional services associated with your Internet use for the website operator. The IP addresses transferred by your browser as part of Google Analytics are not associated with other data from Google.
You can prohibit the storage of cookies by changing the settings in your browser software accordingly; we would, however, like to inform you that in this case you will not be able to use the full extent of all functions on our website. You can, additionally, prohibit the collection of the data created by cookies and related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) by Google and Google’s processing of this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link. https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

If you send us an application, we will process your associated personal data (such as contact and communication data, application documents, notes related to interviews, etc.), insofar as this is necessary to make a decision regarding whether to initiate an employment relationship. The legal basis for this processing is Sec. 26 BDSG (Federal Data Protection Act) – new version – under German law (initiating an employment relationship), Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR (general initiation of contract) and – if you have granted your consent – Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.

If we are not able to offer you a position, if you reject a position, if you withdraw your application, if you revoke your consent to data processing or if you request that we delete your data, the data you have transmitted, incl. any remaining physical application documents will be saved or stored for a maximum of 6 months after the application process is completed (retention period) in order to track details of the application process in case of discrepancies (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR).
YOU CAN OBJECT TO THIS STORAGE IF YOU HAVE LEGITIMATE INTERESTS IN DOING SO THAT OUTWEIGH OUR OWN INTERESTS.
After the end of the retention period, the data will be deleted unless we have an obligation to store it or unless there is some other legal reason for continued storage.

Other statutory retention periods shall remain unaffected.
