Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing processes are only possible with your explicit consent. You may withdraw your consent at any time. This simply requires notification by email with no specific form. The legality of the data processing that has taken place before the revocation is unaffected by the revocation.

Objection right to data collection in special cases and direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

IF THE PROCESSING TAKES PLACE ON THE BASIS OF ART. 6 PARA. 1 LIT. E OR F GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT AT ANY TIME FOR REASONS ARISING FROM THE SPECIFIC SITUATION TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING SUPPORTED BY THESE PROVISIONS.

The complaint right exists notwithstanding other legal remedies available under administrative law or in court.

Right to data transfer

You have the right to hand over data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or the fulfilment of a contract to yourself or a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible party, this only takes place if it is technically feasible to do so.

SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transfer of confidential content, such as orders or queries that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the change in the browser's address line from “http://” to “https://” and the padlock icon in your browser header.

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

Information, deletion and correction

You have a right under the applicable statutory provisions to be informed, at any time and free of charge, about which data about you is held on our database as well as its sources, recipients and the purpose for which they are processed, and if relevant you have a right to correct or delete these data. You can contact us at any time on this matter or other questions concerning personal data using the address stated in the Legal Notes section.

Right to restriction on processing

You have the right to request a restriction on the processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time using the address stated in the Legal Notes section for this purpose. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:

  • If you dispute the correctness of the personal data we have stored, we usually need some time to check this. You have the right to request a restriction on the processing of your personal data for the duration of the check.
  • If your personal data is being/has been processed illegally, instead of deletion you can request the restriction on data processing.
  • If we no longer require your personal data but you require it to implement, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right instead of deletion to restrict the processing of your personal data.
  • If you have placed an objection under Art. 21 Para. 1 GDPR, your and our interests must be considered. You have the right to request a restriction on the processing of your personal data if no decision has been made on whose interests outweigh the others.

If processing your personal data was restricted, then this data – aside from saving it – may only be processed with your consent or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural person or legal entity or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

Objection to advertising emails

The use of contact data published under the obligation to state the owner of the website to transfer advertising and information materials not explicitly requested is hereby explicitly opposed. The operator of these pages explicitly reserves the right to undertake legal measures in the event of being sent unwanted advertising materials, e.g. spam emails.

YouTube with extended data protection

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

We use YouTube in extended data protection mode. This mode ensures that YouTube does not store any information on the visitors to this website before they watch the video. The transfer of data to YouTube partners is however not prevented per force through the extended data protection mode. So YouTube makes a connection to the Google DoubleClick network - no matter whether you watch a video or not.

As soon as you start a YouTube video on this website, a connection is made to the YouTube servers. The YouTube server is informed about which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to directly assign your browsing behaviour to your personal profile. You can prevent this from occurring by logging out of your YouTube account.

In addition, YouTube can store various cookies on your device after starting the video. Using these cookies YouTube can receive information on visitors to this website. This information is used for such matters as recording video statistics, improving user friendliness and preventing attempts at fraud. The cookies will remain on your device until you delete them.

If necessary, after starting a YouTube video additional data processing events may take place over which we have no influence.

YouTube is used in the interest of an appealing display of our online products and services. This represents a justifiable interest as defined by Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If appropriate consent was requested the processing takes place exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.

Additional information on data protection at YouTube can be found in their data protection policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

Google Maps is used in the interest of an attractive depiction of our online products and the ability to easily find the locations stated on the website. This represents a justifiable interest as defined by Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

You can find more information on handling user data in the Google data protection policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

7. E-commerce and payment providers

Processing data (customer and contract data)

We only collect, process and use personal data if it is required for the establishment, content design or change to the legal relationship (transaction data). This takes place on the basis of Art 6 Para. 1 lit. B GDPR which permits the processing of data to fulfil a contract or pre-contractual measures. We only collect, process and use personal data on the use of this website (usage data) if this is required to enable or bill users for using the service.

The collected customer data is deleted after completion of the order or end of the business relationship. Statutory storage periods are unaffected.

8. Own services

Handling applicant data

We give you the opportunity to apply to us (e.g. by email, post or online application form). We provide information below on the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected during the application process. We make assurances that the collection, processing and use of data takes place in accordance with the applicable data protection law and all other statutory provisions and that your data is treated in the strictest of confidence.

Scope and purpose of the data collection 

If you send an application to us we handle your related personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes during interviews etc.) if these are required to decide on and justify employment. The legal basis for this is Section 26 of the German Data Protection Act - BDSG new - under German law (starting an employment relationship), Art 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR (general contract initiation) and - if you have provided consent - Art 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR. Consent can be revoked at any time. We only pass on your personal data to people within our company who are involved in handling your application.

If the application is successful, the data you have submitted is stored in our data processing systems on the basis of Section 26 BDSG new and Art 6 Para. 1 lit. B GDPR for the purposes of implementing the employment relationship.

Data storage duration

If we were not able to offer a job, you refuse a job offer or withdraw your application, we reserve the right to store the data provided on the basis of our justified interest (Art 6 Para. 1: lit. f GDPR) for up to 6 months from the end of the application process (rejection or withdrawal of the application). The data is then deleted and the physical application documents destroyed. The storage is used for evidence purposes in the event of a legal dispute. If it is clear that the data is required after the end of the 6-month period (e.g. due to a threatened or started legal dispute) it is only deleted when the purpose of the ongoing storage lapses.

Longer storage can also take place if you have issued appropriate consent (Art 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR) or a statutory storage obligation opposes the deletion.

Inclusion in the applicant pool

If we do not offer a job there may also be the option to be included in our applicant pool. In the event of inclusion, all documents and statements from the applicant are transferred to the applicant pool so we can contact you if there are relevant vacancies.

Inclusion in the applicant pool only takes place on the basis of your explicit consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR). Providing your consent is voluntary and is not related to the current application process. The affected person may revoke their consent at any time. In this case the data is irrevocably deleted from the applicant pool if there are no statutory storage requirements.

The data from the applicant pool is irrevocably deleted at the latest two years after consent has been issued.
