This privacy notice provides you with all the necessary information on how and the extent to which we or third party providers acquire data from you and use it when you use our website and for what purposes this is done.

Your data is acquired and used in strict adherence to the requirements of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), German data protection law under the DSAnpUG-EU and the German Telemedia Act (TMG) where applicable.

• In the event that processing of personal data is necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 d GDPR.

Transfer of data to third countries
Where we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)) or this is done when using the services of “third parties”, or where data is disclosed or transferred to “third parties”, this only occurs where it is absolutely necessary
• To meet our (pre)contractual obligations
• With your consent
• Due to a legal obligation, or
• Based on our legitimate interests

Personal data
Each time a user accesses our website and each time a file is downloaded, data about this operation is temporarily saved and processed in a log file. Before saving, each data record is anonymised by changing the IP address. Specifically, the following data is saved for each access/download:
• Anonymised IP address
• Date and time,
• Page visited/name of file downloaded,
• Data volume transferred,
• Notification of whether access/download was successful.
This data is evaluated exclusively for statistical purposes and to improve our online offering and is then deleted. It is not used for any other purpose or passed on to third parties.
Where we collect personal data, in line with the principles of data avoidance and data economy we do so only to the extent and for as long as is necessary to allow use of our website or as is stipulated by legislation.
If we collect personal data - such as your name, your address or your e-mail address - this is entirely voluntary. This data will not be disclosed to third parties without your explicit consent.
We take protection of your personal data very seriously and when collecting and processing personal data we adhere strictly to the corresponding legal requirements and to this privacy notice.
If the purpose of data collection is no longer applicable or the end of the statutory retention period is reached, the data collected is blocked or deleted. Our website can be used normally without passing on any personal data.

Some websites use what are known as cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used to make our online offering more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and are saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are what are known as “session cookies”. These are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain saved on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit.
You can set up your browser to notify you about setting cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, to exclude the acceptance of cookies for particular cases or generally, and to automatically delete cookies when closing your browser. Disabling cookies may impair the functionality of this website.

Contact form
If you send us enquiries using the contact form, we will save the information you provide in the enquiry form, including the contact data you enter, for the purpose of dealing with your enquiry and for dealing with any follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent. We will delete the data occurring in this context once its storage is no longer necessary, or we will restrict processing of there are any statutory retention periods. 

Content and services from third party providers
Our website may include content and services from other providers, supplementing what we offer ourselves. Examples include YouTube videos or graphical illustrations from third parties. Accessing these third party services generally requires transfer of your IP address. As a result, it is possible for these providers to ascertain your user IP address and to store it. We give precedence to third party providers who use IP addresses only to deliver their content. However, we have no influence on which third party providers may save the IP address. It may be saved to be used for statistical purposes, for example. If we become aware of saving operations by third party providers, we will notify our users of this immediately. In this regard, refer also to the specific privacy notices for individual third party providers and service providers whose service we use on our website. You can find this information in this privacy notice.

SSL encryption
This page uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as enquiries you send to us as the operator of the page. You can identify an encrypted connection because the address bar of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and a padlock symbol appears in the browser.<br/> If SSL encryption is enabled, the data you send to us cannot be viewed by third parties.

Right to access, erasure, blocking
You have the right (Art. 15 GDPR), at any time and free of charge, to information on your personal data that is stored, its origin and the recipient and the purpose of the data processing, as well as a right to rectification or completion (Art. 16 GDPR), blocking or erasure (Art. 17 GDPR), and provision (Art. 20 GDPR) of this data. For further information and if you have any other queries on the issue of personal data, you can contact us at the address specified in the legal notice. Under Art. 77 GDPR you also have the right to submit a complaint to the responsible supervisory authority.

Right to withdraw consent
You have the right to withdraw your consent under Art 7 para. 3 GDPR with effect for the future at any time by sending a mail to:

Right to object - Art. 21 EU GDPR.
You can object to future processing of any data relating to you at any time to the extent permitted under Art. 21 GDPR. In particular, this objection can be raised against processing for direct marketing purposes.
At this point, we would like to refer you to the general dangers of Internet usage, on which we have no influence. Particularly in e-mail correspondence, your data is not secure without further precautions and may be acquired by third parties under some circumstances.

Erasure of data
You have the right to demand rectification, blocking or erasure of your data. This excludes data that is retained due to legal regulations or is required for proper processing of business transactions. To enable a data block to be implemented at any time, data is retained in a block file for monitoring purposes. If data is not covered by a statutory archiving obligation, we delete your data on request. If an archiving obligation is in force, we block your data. For any queries or issues relating to rectification, blocking or erasure of personal data, please contact our data protection officer using the contact data provided in this privacy notice or the address provided in the legal notice.

Data protection for applications through our homepage
Our homepage provides a facility for applying for available jobs.
We collect and process applicants’ personal data for the purposes of managing the application process. This processing may be using electronic means. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends us application documents in electronic form, for example by e-mail or using a web form on the website. If a contract of employment is concluded with an applicant, the data sent will be saved for the purpose of managing the employment relationship, in compliance with legal requirements. If no contract of employment is concluded with the applicant, the application documents will be deleted automatically six months after notification of the decision to reject the applicant, where deletion does not run counter to any other legitimate interests. Another legitimate interest in this context could, for example, be a burden of proof in proceedings under the General Equality Act (AGG).
