Considering the procession of your personal data, you have of course several rights, about which we want to inform you.

Information, restriction, deletion

Within the legal regulations, you have the right to get informed (free of charge) about your personal data stored by us, about their origin, recipients and the purpose of their procession.

Furthermore, you have the right to correct your data, to restrict them for further processing or to have them deleted.

Right to object the the processing of your personal data

For most of the data procession on our website, your explicit consent is necessary. Of course, you can object to an already issued consent at any time. The legitimacy of data procession until the objection is not touched by the objection.

You are entitled to be handed out your personal data saved and automatedly processed by us. Those data can be handed out to you yourself or a third party in a current machine-readable format. If you wish your data ported to a third party, this will be carried out only as far as it is technically viable for us.

Protection of your data

There’s no 100% protection

Data processing via the internet is always prone to security flaws.

This is why we make an effort of securing your data from unauthorised access and notice of third parties according to the best available technology and as far as it is viable for us.

SSL- respectively TLS-encryption

One of those security measures is the TLS-encryption (also known under the old designation „SSL“) of our website. Encryption secures your data during the data procession from unauthorised access by third parties. An active encryption can be recognised by the https:// in your browsers address line and by the lock symbol in the browser line.

Security monitoring and auditing

For reasons of security monitoring and auditing, we compile a data protocol about how our website is used by those who have or want to gain access to it. This information will be collected by us for security and auditing reasons and is stored for 30 days.

This includes:
IP-address of the user, logging on and off of a user, changing content and files, errors when trying to log in, manually locked users as well as trying to access content that is non-existent.

To protect from so-called Brute-Force-Attacks, the IP-Address is sent to spammer databases to check data.

The information recorded will only be retrieved by administrators of the website and saved in the database of the website. They won’t be processed to third parties, except from law enforcement agencies.

Those data are stored because we have a legitimate interest in protecting our website from attacks and because we want to ensure the integrity, confidentiality and availability of your data processed via this website (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR).

Data collection on our website

Generally, we collect data from you when you give them to us on a voluntary basis.

To some extent, your data is collected automatically when entering our website. Some data are collected to ensure an error-free usage of the website.

Other automatically collected data are used for analysis and statistical reasons. They are saved and processed anonymously, as far as possible, to ensure that no one will be able to determine your identity based on the collected data.

Server Log Files

The provider where we host this website collects and saves the following information about visitors of this website automatically in the so-called server log files. Those files render useful services to recognise security incidents or problems with system operation. They are also helpful at audits and forensic investigations.

The following data are collected and stored:

  • Type and version of the browser
  • Operating system
  • Referrer URL
  • Hostname of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server inquiry
  • IP-Address

These data are processed particularly for the following reasons:

  • Securing a smooth connection establishment of the website
  • Securing a smooth usage of our website
  • Evaluation of system security and stability and
  • Further administrative purposes.

There will be no combination of this data with other data sources. These data won’t be used to draw conclusions about your person but maybe for statistical analysis by us to optimise our internet presence and the technology behind it.

These data will be deleted when they are no longer needed for surveying. Data that are used for providing this website are usually deleted after finishing a session.

Basis for the data processing is the processing for fulfilling a contract or arrangements precedent to a contract (Art. 6 para 1 lit. b GDPR) and because we have legitimate interest in a secure and stable service of our website (Art. 6 para 1 lit. f GDPR).

If you send us an e-mail

Note: Data processing via the internet (including e-mails) is always prone to security flaws. A complete protection of data from third parties is therefore not possible.

If you send us an e-mail, we store these data as long as it is necessary for this purpose. The statutory retention period – which is six years for business letters (including e-mail and fax) according to § 256 HGB – is not affected by this.

Of course, we take care that your data is protected from unauthorised access and information by third parties according to the best available technology.

Contact form

If you contact us via the contact form, the processed data for handling your request and possible further questions are stored by us.

They will be stored untill the reason for data storage is dispensed or untill you request their deletion. Statutory retention periods are not affected by this.

Of course, we don’t forward those data to third parties without your consent.

Basis for this data processing is our legitimate interest in ensuring a straightforward way for contacting us (Art. 6 para 1 lit. f GDPR) as well as the processing for fulfilling a contract or arrangements precedent to a contract (Art. 6 para 1 lit. b GDPR) and because we have legitimate interest in a secure and stable service of our website (Art. 6 para 1 lit. f GDPR).

Requesting a catalogue

If you request catalogues from us via the order form, the processed data for handling your request, sending the catalogues and possible further questions are stored by us.

They will be stored untill the reason for data storage is dispensed or untill you request their deletion. Statutory retention periods are not affected by this.

Of course, we don’t forward those data to third parties without your consent.

Basis for this data processing is our legitimate interest in ensuring a straightforward way for contacting us (Art. 6 para 1 lit. f GDPR) as well as the processing for fulfilling a contract or arrangements precedent to a contract (Art. 6 para 1 lit. b GDPR) and because we have legitimate interest in a secure and stable service of our website (Art. 6 para 1 lit. f GDPR).

Job applications

We provide you with the opportunity to send us job applications (e.g. via e-mail, mail or via the online application form). We assure you that the collection, processing and usage of your data is according to applicable data protection law and all further legal requirements, and that we keep your data as strictly confidential.

Extent and purpose of data collection

If you send us an application, we process your associated personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes from job interviews etc.) insofar this is necessary for a decision about the reason of an employment relationship.

Basis for this data processing is the initiation of an employment relationship (§ 26 BDSG-neu), the general arrangements precedent to a contract (Art. 6 para 1 lit. b GDPR) and – if you gave your permission – your permission (Art. 6 para 1 lit. a GDPR). A given permission can be withdrawn at any time in the future.

Your personal data will be given solely to individuals in our company who are part of handling your application.

Provided your application is successful, the data you handed in will be used for the implementation of the employment relationship (§ 26 BDSG-neu and Art. 6 para 1 lit. b GDPR) in our data processing systems.

Retention period of data

If we can’t offer you a job, if you decline a job offer, take back your application, withdraw your premission for data processing or request us to delete your data, your transmitted data including physical job applications will be stored for the maximum of six months after finishing the application procedure (retention period), to be able to reconstruct details of the application process in the case of discrepancies (Art. 6 para 1 lit. f GDPR).

YOU CAN OBJECT TO THIS STORAGE IF YOU HAVE A LEGITIMATE INTEREST IN IT WHICH OUTWEIGHS OUR INTEREST.

After the retention period, all data will be deleted if there is no statutory retention period or any other legal foundation for further storage. If it is obvious that the storage of your data will be necessary after the retention period ends (e.g. due to a impending or pending lawsuit), your data will only be deleted when they become null and void. Other statutory retention obligations are not affected by this.
