    SSL or TLS encryption

    This page uses an SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and in order to protect confidential content being transferred, such as orders or enquiries that you might be sending us, the site operators. You will recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of your browser switches from “http://” to “https://” as well as by the padlock symbol in the browser bar.

    When SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data that you send us cannot be read by third parties.

     

    Information, erasure and rectification

    Within the framework of the existing legal provisions, you have the right to obtain information free of charge at any time about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients, the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to rectify or erase this data.

    You have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data. To do so, you can contact us at any time under the address provided in the imprint. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:

    • When you dispute the accuracy of the personal data we have stored about you, we usually require some time to check this. You have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data for the duration of this verification.
    • Where the processing of your personal data was or is unlawful, you can request that we restrict its processing rather than demanding its erasure.
    • Where we no longer need your personal data, but you require it for the establishment, exercise or defence of a legal claim, you have the right to request that we restrict the processing of your personal data rather than demanding its erasure.
    • Where you have lodged an objection pursuant to Article 21 section 1 of the GDPR, a balance must be struck between your interests and ours. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data.
    • Where you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data may only be processed with your consent, other than for storage, or to establish, exercise or defend legal claims, to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or if it is of important public interest to the European Union or one of its member states.

     

    1. Data collection on this website

    Cookies

    Our web pages use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files and they do not cause any harm to your end device. They are stored on your end device temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies). Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them or they are deleted automatically by your web browser.

    To a certain extent, cookies from third parties can also be stored on your end device when you access our page (third party cookies). These enable your or us the use of certain services of this third party (e.g. cookies for the processing of payment services).

    Cookies have various functions. Numerous cookies are required for technical purposes as certain website functions would not work without them (e.g. the shopping basket function or displaying videos). Other cookies are used to evaluate user behaviour or to display advertisements.

    Cookies that are required to carry out electronic communication processes or to provide certain functions that you wish to use (e.g. the shopping basket feature) are stored in accordance with Article 6 section 1 point f of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies to ensure the error-free and optimised provision and technical functioning of their services. Where such consent was requested (e.g. consent for the storage of cookies), the processing exclusively occurs in accordance with Article 6 section 1 point a of the GDPR; this consent can be revoked at any time.

    You can set up your browser to inform you when cookies are to be stored and only allow cookies on an individual basis, exclude the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic erasure of cookies when closing the browser. Deactivating cookies can impact the functionality of this website.

    Where cookies from third parties or cookies that are used for the purpose of analysis are used, you will be informed separately as part of this privacy policy and, where applicable, your consent will be requested.

     

    Cookie consent with Consent Manager Provider

    Our website uses the cookie consent technology from Consent Manager Provider to document your consent to the storage of certain cookies on your end device in accordance with data protection regulations. The provider of this technology is Jaohawi AB, Håltegelvägen 1b, 72348 Västerås, Sweden, website: https://www.consentmanager.net (hereafter referred to as “Consent Manager Provider”).

    When you access our website, a connection to the servers of Consent Manager Provider is established in order to request your consent and other declarations related to the use of cookies. Consent Manager Provider subsequently stores a cookie in your browser in order to be able to correctly assign the information on your given consent or objection. The data recorded this way is stored until you demand its erasure, delete the cookie placed by Consent Manager Provider or the reason for the storage of data no longer applies. The legal obligation to retain records remains unaffected.

    Consent Manager Provider is used in order to collect the legally required consent to the use of cookies. The legal basis for this is set out under Article 6 section 1 subsection 1 point c of the GDPR.

     

    Contract for commissioned data processing

    We have concluded a contract for commissioned data processing with Consent Manager Provider. This is a contract that is required by data protection law and ensures that Consent Manager Provider will only process the personal data of our website visitors pursuant to our instructions and in compliance with the GDPR.

     

    Server log files

    The provider of these pages automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transfers to us in the so-called server log files. These are:

    • the browser type and browser version
    • the operating system in use
    • the referrer URL
    • the hostname of the accessing computer
    • the timestamp of the server request
    • the IP address
    • This data is not merged with data from other sources.

    The collection of this data occurs in accordance with Article 6 section 1 point f of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the error-free technical presentation and optimisation of their website – server log files must be collected in order to ensure this.

     

    Contact form

    When you contact us via the contact form, the data you provide in the form, including the provided contact data, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in case there are any follow-up questions. This data is not passed on without your consent.

    It is processed in accordance with Article 6 section 1 point b of the GDPR, provided your enquiry is connected to the completion of a contract or is required for carrying out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in responding to the enquiry directed at us effectively (Article 6 section 1 point f of the GDPR) or on your consent (Article 6 section 1 point a of the GDPR), if this was requested.

    The data you enter into the contact form remains with us until you demand its erasure, revoke your consent to its storage or until the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after we have processed your enquiry). Obligatory legal provisions – in particular, the duty to retain records – remain unaffected.

     

    Enquiries via email, telephone or fax

    When you contact us via email, telephone or fax, your enquiry, including all personal data contained in it (name, enquiry), will be stored and processed by us in order to respond to your enquiry. This data is not passed on without your consent.

    It is processed in accordance with Article 6 section 1 point b of the GDPR, provided your enquiry is connected to the completion of a contract or is required for carrying out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (Article 6 section 1 point a of the GDPR) and/or on our legitimate interests (Article 6 section 1 point f of the GDPR), as we have a legitimate interest in responding to enquiries directed at us effectively.

    The data you send us by means of your contact request remains with us until you demand its erasure, revoke your consent to its storage or until the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after we have processed your enquiry). Obligatory legal provisions – in particular the legal duty to retain records – remain unaffected.

     

    1. Analytical tools and advertising

    Google Analytics

    This website uses the functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. The provider of this service is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

    Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable the analysis of how you use the website. The information about your use of this website that is created with the help of the cookie is, in general, transferred to a Google server in the USA and is stored there.

    The storage of Google Analytics cookies and the use of this analysis tool occurs on the basis of Article 6 section 1 point f of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the analysis of user behaviour, both in order to optimise their web offer and their advertising. Where such consent was requested (e.g. consent for the storage of cookies), the processing exclusively occurs in accordance with Article 6 section 1 point a of the GDPR; this consent can be revoked at any time.

     

    IP anonymisation

    We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. This means that your IP address is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or other states which are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transferred to the USA. Only under exceptional circumstances will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA before being shortened there. Google uses this information to evaluate your use of the website on behalf of the operator of this website, to create reports on website usage and to provide further services connected to website and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transferred to Google Analytics from your browser is not merged with other data from Google.

     

    Browser plugin

    You can prevent the storage of these cookies in your browser settings; please be aware that you might not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent if you do so. You can also prevent Google from collecting data created by the cookie and based on your use of the website (incl. your IP address) as well as from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB.

     

    Objection to data collection

    You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the link below. This will store an opt-out cookie that will prevent the collection of your data during future visits to this website: deactivate Google Analytics.

    Further information on how Google Analytics handles user data is available as part of Google’s privacy policy: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.

     

    Commissioned data processing

    We have concluded a contract on commissioned data processing with Google and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

     

    Demographics in Google Analytics

    This website uses the function “demographics” provided by Google Analytics. This can be used in order to create reports containing information on the age, gender and interests of page visitors. This data comes from Google’s interest-based advertising as well as from visitor data from third parties. This data cannot be connected to individuals. You can deactivate this function at any time via the advertising settings in your Google account or prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics by following the instructions described in “Objection to data collection”.

     

    Google Analytics Remarketing

    This website uses the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing in conjunction with the cross-device functions of Google Ads and Google DoubleClick. The provider of this service is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

    With this function, the advertising target groups created with the help of Google Analytics Remarketing can be linked to the cross-device functions of Google Ads and Google DoubleClick. This way, interest-based, personalised advertising that is tailored specifically to you based on your previous user and browsing behaviour on one end device (e.g. mobile phone) can be displayed on all your end devices (e.g. tablet or PC).

    If you have given your consent, Google links your web and app browser history with your Google account in order to provide this service. This way, every end device on which you log into your Google account can display the same personalised advertisements.

    To support this function, Google Analytics records the users’ IDs authenticated by Google that are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data in order to define and create target groups for cross-device advertising.

    You can permanently object to cross-device remarketing / targeting by deactivating personalised advertising; to do so, click on this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.

    The connection of the collected data in your Google account is based solely on your consent, which you can give or revoke to Google (Article 6 section 1 point a of the GDPR). Where the data that is collected is not linked to your Google account (e.g. because you do not have a Google account or have objected to the connection), the collection of the data is based on Article 6 section 1 point f of the GDPR. The legitimate interest results from the fact that the website operator has an interest in the anonymous analysis of their website visitors for advertising purposes.

    Further information and the data protection regulations are available in Google’s privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads?hl=en-GB.

     

    Google Ads and Google conversion tracking

    This website uses Google Ads. Google Ads is an online advertising program provided by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

    We use so-called conversion tracking as part of Google Ads. When you click on an advert placed by Google, a cookie is placed for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files that the internet browser stores on the user’s computer. These cookies become invalid after 30 days and are not used to identify the user as an individual. If the user visits certain pages on this website and the cookie is still valid, Google and we can see that the user has clicked on the advert and was forwarded to that site.

    Every Google Ads customer has a different cookie. The cookies cannot be traced via the websites of Google Ads customers. The information collected with the help of the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Google Ads customers who have decided to use conversion tracking. The customers are informed of the total number of users who have clicked on their advert and were forwarded to a page with a conversion tracking tag. They do not receive information that could be used to personally identify users. If you do not wish to participate in the tracking, you can object to it by simply deactivating the Google conversion tracking cookie via your browser in your user settings. You will then not be included in conversion tracking statistics.

    The storage of conversion cookies and the use of this tracking tool occurs on the basis of Article 6 section 1 point f of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the analysis of user behaviour, both in order to optimise their web offer and their advertising. Where such consent was requested (e.g. consent for the storage of cookies), the processing exclusively occurs in accordance with Article 6 section 1 point a of the GDPR; this consent can be revoked at any time.

    Further information on Google Ads and Google conversion tracking is available in Google’s privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en-GB

    You can set up your browser to inform you when cookies are to be stored and only allow cookies on an individual basis, exclude the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic erasure of cookies when closing the browser. Deactivating cookies can impact the functionality of this website.

     

    Facebook Pixel

    This website uses the visitor action tool Pixel by Facebook to measure conversions. This service is provided by Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland. However, the recorded data is also transferred to the USA and other non-EU countries according to Facebook.

    It enables the tracking of site visitors’ behaviour after they clicked on a Facebook ad and were forwarded to the provider’s website. This information can be evaluated to measure the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes and optimise advertising in future.

    The collected data is anonymous for us as site operators; we cannot draw conclusions on the identity of the users. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook, which means that the information can be connected to the individual user profiles and Facebook can use this data for their own advertising purposes according to the Facebook Data Processing Terms. This means that Facebook can enable the placement of ads on Facebook pages as well as outside of Facebook. The processing of this data cannot be influenced by us as the website operator.

    The use of Facebook Pixel occurs on the basis of Article 6 section 1 point f of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in effective advertising including social media. Where such consent was requested (e.g. consent for the storage of cookies), the processing exclusively occurs in accordance with Article 6 section 1 point a of the GDPR; this consent can be revoked at any time.

    Facebook’s privacy policy provides further information on the protection of your privacy: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

    You can also deactivate the remarketing function “custom audiences” in the ad settings section under https://www.facebook.com/ds/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen. This requires being logged in to Facebook.

    If you do not own a Facebook account, you can deactivate user-based adverts by Facebook on the website of the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance under the section “Your Ad Choices”: https://www.youronlinechoices.com/

     

    1. Plugins and tools

    YouTube with enhanced data protection

    This website incorporates videos from YouTube. The provider of these pages is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

    We use YouTube in the enhanced data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode ensures that YouTube stores no information about the visitors of this website before they watch a video. The transmission of data to YouTube partners is not necessarily excluded by the enhanced data protection mode. YouTube establishes a connection with the Google DoubleClick network – whether you have watched a video or not.

    As soon as you start a YouTube video on this website, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. In doing so, the YouTube server is informed of which of our pages you have visited. When you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to link your browsing behaviour to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

    Furthermore, YouTube can store various cookies on your end device after you have started a video. YouTube can receive information about visitors of this website with the help of this cookie. This information is used, among other things, to create video statistics, to improve usability and to prevent fraud attempts. The cookies remain on your end device until you delete them.

    In some cases, starting a YouTube video may trigger further data processing, upon which we do not have any influence.

    YouTube is used in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online presence. This represents a legitimate interest in accordance with Article 6 section 1 point f of the GDPR. Where such consent was requested (e.g. consent for the storage of cookies), the processing exclusively occurs in accordance with Article 6 section 1 point a of the GDPR; this consent can be revoked at any time.

    Further information about data protection at YouTube is available in their privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en-GB

     

    Google Web Fonts

    This page uses so-called web fonts, provided by Google, for the uniform display of fonts. When opening a page, your browser downloads the necessary web fonts into its browser cache in order to display text and fonts correctly.

    For this purpose, the browser you use must connect to Google’s servers. This informs Google of the fact that this website was accessed by your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts occurs on the basis of Article 6 section 1 point f of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the uniform display of fonts on their website. Where such consent was requested (e.g. consent for the storage of cookies), the processing exclusively occurs in accordance with Article 6 section 1 point a of the GDPR; this consent can be revoked at any time.

    If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font from your computer will be used.

    Further information on Google Web Fonts can be found under https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en-GB.

     

    Google reCAPTCHA

    We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereafter referred to as “reCAPTCHA”) on this website. The provider of this service is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

    The purpose of reCAPTCHA is to determine if data entered on this website (e.g. in a contact form) was input by a human or by an automated program. To do so, reCAPTCHA analyses the behaviour of the website visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis starts automatically as soon as a website visitor accesses the website. reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. the IP address, the time spent on the website by the website visitor or the mouse movements made by the user) for this analysis. The data collected during this analysis is transferred to Google.

    The reCAPTCHA analyses run entirely in the background. Website users are not informed of the fact that an analysis is taking place.

    The storage and analysis of the data occur on the basis of Article 6 section 1 point f of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting their web offer from fraudulent automated spying and SPAM. Where such consent was requested (e.g. consent for the storage of cookies), the processing exclusively occurs in accordance with Article 6 section 1 point a of the GDPR; this consent can be revoked at any time.

    Further information on Google reCAPTCHA is available in Google’s privacy policy and terms of use under the following links: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en-GB and https://policies.google.com/terms?hl=en-GB.

     

    1. Own Services

    Handling of applicant data

    We give you the possibility to apply for a job with us (e.g. by email, post or via an online application form). In the following, we will inform you about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected during the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing and use of your data occur in accordance with the current data protection law and any further legal regulations and that your data is treated confidentially.

     

    Scope and purpose of data collection

    If you send us an application, we will process your personal data connected to this application (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes made during job interviews etc.) to the extent that this is necessary for the decision on the offer of employment. The legal basis for this is section 26 of the BDSG-neu [Federal Data Protection Act] under German law (recruitment), Article 6 section 1 point b of the GDPR (general contract preparation) and – if you have consented to it – Article 6 section 1 point a of the GDPR. This consent can be revoked at any time. Your personal data is exclusively passed on to people within our company who are involved in the processing of your application.

    If the application is successful, we will store your submitted data in our data processing system on the basis of section 26 of the BDSG-neu and Article 6 section 1 point b of the GDPR for the purpose of performance of the contract of employment.

     

    Storage period for this data

    If we cannot offer you employment, you decline an offer of employment or you withdraw your application, we reserve the right to store the data transferred by you for up to six months after the end of the application process (refusal or withdrawal of the application) on the basis of our legitimate interest (Article 6 section 1 point f of the GDPR). After this, the data is erased and physical application documents are destroyed. The purpose of the storage is in particular to provide evidence in the event of a legal dispute. If it becomes evident that the data will be required after the 6-month period has expired (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), the data will not be erased until the purpose for further storage no longer applies.

    Longer storage may also occur if you have given your consent (Article 6 section 1 point a of the GDPR) or if statutory storage obligations prevent erasure.

     

    Inclusion in our pool of candidates

    If we did not make you an offer of employment, there might be the possibility to add you to our pool of candidates. Should this happen, all documents and details from your application will be transferred to the candidate pool in order to contact you in the case of a suitable vacancy.

    The inclusion in the pool of candidates will only occur on the basis of your express consent (Article 6 section 1 point a of the GDPR). This consent is given on a voluntary basis and is not connected to the application process. The candidate can revoke their consent at any time. In this case, the data is irretrievably erased from the pool of candidates, provided there are no legal reasons for storage.

    The data from the candidate pool is irretrievably erased after a maximum of two years after consent was given.
