5. General information on the processing of personal data

5.1 Types of data processed
On our website we collect and process inventory data (e. g. names, addresses), contact data (e. g. e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, fax numbers, postal address), usage data (e. g. websites visited, links clicked on, interest in content, access times, access locations), content data (e. g. comments, text entries, photos, videos) and meta and communication data (e. g. device information, browser information, IP addresses).

5.2 Categories of data subjects
The data subjects affected by the processing of personal data are all visitors and users of our website.

5.3 Purpose of the processing
We collect and process the personal data of the users of our website in order to communicate with and inform you (e. g. contact and other inquiries, newsletters) and, if necessary, to carry out statistics, reach measurement and analyses (e. g. with marketing and analysis tools), so that we can better design and optimize content and functions, to technically manage and optimize the website and to close security gaps.

5.4 Legal bases for the processing of personal data
We only process personal data on a legal basis if we are entitled to do so. In the following we will name these legal bases individually. Otherwise, we are always entitled to process personal data if the data subject has given his or her consent (see Art. 6 (1) 1 (a), Art. 7 GDPR) or if we are obliged to perform contractual or pre-contractual obligations (see Art. 6 (1) 1 (b) GDPR) or when we safeguard our legitimate interests (see Art. 6 (1) 1 (f) GDPR).

5.5 Recipient of personal data
We sometimes transfer personal data to contract processors or other third parties (e.g. hosting agencies, etc.) with whom we work together. We are entitled to do so if the person concerned has consented to this (see Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a, Art. 7 GDPR) or if we are fulfilling contractual or pre-contractual obligations (see Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b GDPR), if we are fulfilling a legal obligation (see Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. c GDPR) or if we safeguard our legitimate interests (see Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR). We conclude a so-called order processing agreement with contract processors in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR or agree on the validity of the standard contractual clauses issued by the European Commission in accordance with Art. 46 Para. (2) lit. c GDPR, according to which these also undertake to comply with data protection.

5.6 Integration of third-party services and content
Within our website, we use content or service offers from third parties on the basis of our legitimate interests (i. e. interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our website in accordance with Art. 6 (1) 1 p. 1 lit. (f) GDPR in order to integrate their content and services, such as videos or fonts (hereinafter referred to uniformly as ‘content’).

This always presupposes that the third party providers of such content are aware of the IP address of the users, as without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to their browsers. The IP address is therefore required to display this content. We make every effort to use only such content whose respective providers use the IP address only to deliver the content. Third party providers may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as ‘web beacons’) for statistical or marketing purposes. ‘Pixel tags‘ can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user’s device and may contain technical information on the browser and operating system, referring web pages, visiting time and other details on the use of our online offer, as well as being linked to such information from other sources.

5.7 Processing of personal data in third countries
If data is transferred from us to a third country, e. g. because we commission service providers there, we are entitled to do so if the data subject has given his / her consent (see Art. 6 (1) 1 (a), Art. 7 GDPR), if we thereby fulfil contractual or pre-contractual obligations (see Art. 6 (1) 1 (b) GDPR), if we thereby comply with a legal obligation (see Art. 6 (1) 1 (c) GDPR) or if we safeguard our legitimate interests (see Art. 6 (1) 1 (f) GDPR). A third country is any country outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA). When transferring data to third countries, we ensure the compliance with Art. 44 et seq. GDPR, regarding existing guarantees or findings of the EU on an adequate level of data protection in the third country, and the conclusion of any necessary agreements, e. g. standard contractual clauses.

5.8 Encrypted transmission of your data
All personal data that you enter on our website and send to us will be encrypted on our website using state-of-the-art technology. In addition, we secure our website and associated IT systems by technical and organizational measures against loss, destruction, access, modification or distribution of your personal data by unauthorized persons.

The legal basis for the use of the hosting services is the protection of our legitimate interests in the analysis, optimization and economic and secure operation of our website (see Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR).

In this context, our hosting provider processes personal data. The data is stored for as long as there is a purpose for this. Afterwards, the data will be deleted, unless this is contrary to statutory storage obligations.

In order to be able to process the applications, we require a minimum amount of data resulting from the job advertisement. These are, for example, data such as names, address data and the documents belonging to the application, such as cover letter, CV and certificates. Further data can be transmitted voluntarily.

We process the data provided by applicants only for the purposes of the application process. The legal basis for the processing of this data is the fulfilment of our pre-contractual obligations within the application procedure in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 p. 1 lit. b GDPR in conjunction with § 26 BDSG.

Further data may be stored for a longer period of time in order to fulfill other legal obligations.

If an applicant agrees, we will include his or her applicant data in our applicant pool in order to be able to contact him or her in the event of future job advertisements.

The legal basis for data processing within the scope of this application is the protection of our legitimate interests in the analysis, optimization and economic and secure operation of our website (see Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR).

Within the scope of this application, the browser of the visitor who visits our website automatically calls up the Google server, which is usually located in the USA. The data transfer is based on the standard contractual clauses used by Google in the sense of Art. 46 Para. (2) lit. c GDPR.

The Google fonts are then transferred to the browser’s memory (cache) so that they can be used for display. If the browser does not support the Google fonts or access, the text on our website is displayed in a standard font. In addition, the following data is collected and stored when the Google server is accessed: Name of the browser used, version of the browser, website from which the request was initiated, operating system of the visitor, screen resolution of the visitor, IP address of the visitor, language settings of the browser or operating system that the visitor uses.

This data, which is transmitted to Google in connection with the page request, is sent to resource-specific domains such as fonts.googleapis.com or fonts.gstatic.com. No cookies are stored on your devices. The data stored by Google is not associated with data that may be collected or used in connection with the parallel use of other Google services such as Gmail.

You can set your browser so that the fonts are not loaded from the Google servers – e. g. by installing add-ons like NoScript (www.noscript.net) or Ghostery for the Firefox browser (https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/ghostery).

Otherwise, you can also set your advertising settings for the Google applications here: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated.

However, if IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states which are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The transmitted IP address will not be merged with other Google data.

7.6 Youtube
This website embeds YouTube videos. Operator of the corresponding plugins is Google Ireland, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland, or YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection to servers of YouTube is not established.

7.7 Social Media Plugins
We use interaction elements or content from social media channels on our website (e.g. share buttons), which can be recognized by the corresponding logos. In detail, these are plugins from Facebook and LinkedIn.

If a visitor calls a function of this online offer that contains such a plugin, his device establishes a direct connection with the servers of the social network. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from the social network to the visitor’s device and integrated into the online offer by the visitor. The processed data can be used to create user profiles of the visitors. If the visitor is logged in to a social network, the network can assign the visit to his or her account. If visitors interact with the plugins, for example, by clicking the Like button or posting a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your device to the social network and stored there. If a visitor is not a member of the social network, there is still the possibility that the social network will find out and save his IP address.

When calling up the respective networks and platforms, the terms and conditions and data processing policies of their respective operators apply. We therefore have no influence on the scope of the data that the social network collects using this plugin and therefore inform visitors according to our level of knowledge.

The purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by the social network as well as the relevant rights and setting options to protect the privacy of visitors can be found in the data protection information provided below.

Based on our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR) we use Social Plugins (“Plugins”) of the :following social networks:

7.8 Social Media Links
