2. GENERAL INFORMATION AND MANDATORY INFORMATION

DATA PROTECTION

The oper­a­tors of this web­site and its pages take the pro­tec­tion of your per­son­al data very seri­ous­ly. Hence, we han­dle your per­son­al data as con­fi­den­tial infor­ma­tion and in com­pli­ance with the statu­to­ry data pro­tec­tion reg­u­la­tions and this Data Pro­tec­tion Dec­la­ra­tion.

When­ev­er you use this web­site, a vari­ety of per­son­al infor­ma­tion will be col­lect­ed. Per­son­al data com­pris­es data that can be used to per­son­al­ly iden­ti­fy you. This Data Pro­tec­tion Dec­la­ra­tion explains which data we col­lect as well as the pur­pos­es we use this data for. It also explains how, and for which pur­pose the infor­ma­tion is col­lect­ed.

We here­with advise you that the trans­mis­sion of data via the Inter­net (i.e. through e‑mail com­mu­ni­ca­tions) may be prone to secu­ri­ty gaps. It is not pos­si­ble to com­plete­ly pro­tect data against third par­ty access.

REVOCATION OF YOUR CONSENT TO THE PROCESSING OF DATA

A wide range of data pro­cess­ing trans­ac­tions are pos­si­ble only sub­ject to your express con­sent. You can also revoke at any time any con­sent you have already giv­en us. To do so, all you are required to do is sent us an infor­mal noti­fi­ca­tion via e‑mail. This shall be with­out prej­u­dice to the law­ful­ness of any data col­lec­tion that occurred pri­or to your revo­ca­tion.

RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE COLLECTION OF DATA IN SPECIAL CASES; RIGHT TO OBJECT TO DIRECT ADVERTISING (ART. 21 GDPR)

In the event that data are processed on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. e or f GDPR, you have the right to at any time object to the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data based on grounds aris­ing from your unique sit­u­a­tion. This also applies to any pro­fil­ing based on these pro­vi­sions. To deter­mine the legal basis, on which any pro­cess­ing of data is based, please con­sult this Data Pro­tec­tion Dec­la­ra­tion. If you log an objec­tion, we will no longer process your affect­ed per­son­al data, unless we are in a posi­tion to present com­pelling pro­tec­tion wor­thy grounds for the pro­cess­ing of your data, that out­weigh your inter­ests, rights and free­doms or if the pur­pose of the pro­cess­ing is the claim­ing, exer­cis­ing or defence of legal enti­tle­ments (objec­tion pur­suant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR).

If your per­son­al data is being processed in order to engage in direct adver­tis­ing, you have the right to at any time object to the pro­cess­ing of your affect­ed per­son­al data for the pur­pos­es of such adver­tis­ing. This also applies to pro­fil­ing to the extent that it is affil­i­at­ed with such direct adver­tis­ing. If you object, your per­son­al data will sub­se­quent­ly no longer be used for direct adver­tis­ing pur­pos­es (objec­tion pur­suant to Art. 21 Sect. 2 GDPR).

RIGHT TO LOG A COMPLAINT WITH THE COMPETENT SUPERVISORY AGENCY

In the event of vio­la­tions of the GDPR, data sub­jects are enti­tled to log a com­plaint with a super­vi­so­ry agency, in par­tic­u­lar in the mem­ber state where they usu­al­ly main­tain their domi­cile, place of work or at the place where the alleged vio­la­tion occurred. The right to log a com­plaint is in effect regard­less of any oth­er admin­is­tra­tive or court pro­ceed­ings avail­able as legal recours­es.

RIGHT TO DATA PORTABILITY

You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we auto­mat­i­cal­ly process on the basis of your con­sent or in order to ful­fil a con­tract be hand­ed over to you or a third par­ty in a com­mon­ly used, machine read­able for­mat. If you should demand the direct trans­fer of the data to anoth­er con­troller, this will be done only if it is tech­ni­cal­ly fea­si­ble.

SSL AND/OR TLS ENCRYPTION

For secu­ri­ty rea­sons and to pro­tect the trans­mis­sion of con­fi­den­tial con­tent, such as pur­chase orders or inquiries you sub­mit to us as the web­site oper­a­tor, this web­site uses either an SSL or a TLS encryp­tion pro­gramme. You can recog­nise an encrypt­ed con­nec­tion by check­ing whether the address line of the brows­er switch­es from „http://“ to „https://“ and also by the appear­ance of the lock icon in the brows­er line.

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

INFORMATION ABOUT, BLOCKAGE, RECTIFICATION AND ERADICATION OF DATA

With­in the scope of the applic­a­ble statu­to­ry pro­vi­sions, you have the right to at any time demand infor­ma­tion about your archived per­son­al data, their source and recip­i­ents as well as the pur­pose of the pro­cess­ing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data rec­ti­fied, blocked or erad­i­cat­ed. If you have ques­tions about this sub­ject mat­ter or any oth­er ques­tions about per­son­al data, please do not hes­i­tate to con­tact us at any time at the address pro­vid­ed in sec­tion „Infor­ma­tion Required by Law.“

RIGHT TO DEMAND PROCESSING RESTRICTIONS

You have the right to demand the impo­si­tion of restric­tions as far as the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data is con­cerned. To do so, you may con­tact us at any time at the address pro­vid­ed in sec­tion „Infor­ma­tion Required by Law.“ The right to demand restric­tion of pro­cess­ing applies in the fol­low­ing cas­es:

  • In the event that you should dis­pute the cor­rect­ness of your data archived by us, we will usu­al­ly need some time to ver­i­fy this claim. Dur­ing the time that this inves­ti­ga­tion is ongo­ing, you have the right to demand that we restrict the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data.
  • If the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data was/is con­duct­ed in an unlaw­ful man­ner, you have the option to demand the restric­tion of the pro­cess­ing of your data in lieu of demand­ing the erad­i­ca­tion of this data.
  • If we do not need your per­son­al data any longer and you need it to exer­cise, defend or claim legal enti­tle­ments, you have the right to demand the restric­tion of the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data instead of its erad­i­ca­tion.
  • If you have raised an objec­tion pur­suant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be weighed against each oth­er. As long as it has not been deter­mined whose inter­ests pre­vail, you have the right to demand a restric­tion of the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data.

If you have restrict­ed the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data, these data – with the excep­tion of their archiv­ing – may be processed only sub­ject to your con­sent or to claim, exer­cise or defend legal enti­tle­ments or to pro­tect the rights of oth­er nat­ur­al per­sons or legal enti­ties or for impor­tant pub­lic inter­est rea­sons cit­ed by the Euro­pean Union or a mem­ber state of the EU.

REJECTION OF UNSOLICITED E‑MAILS

We here­with object to the use of con­tact infor­ma­tion pub­lished in con­junc­tion with the manda­to­ry infor­ma­tion to be pro­vid­ed in sec­tion „Infor­ma­tion Required by Law“ to send us pro­mo­tion­al and infor­ma­tion mate­r­i­al that we have not express­ly request­ed. The oper­a­tors of this web­site and its pages reserve the express right to take legal action in the event of the unso­licit­ed send­ing of pro­mo­tion­al infor­ma­tion, for instance via SPAM mes­sages.

3. RECORDING OF DATA ON OUR WEBSITE

COOKIES

In some instances, our web­site and its pages use so-called cook­ies. Cook­ies do not cause any dam­age to your com­put­er and do not con­tain virus­es. The pur­pose of cook­ies is to make our web­site more user friend­ly, effec­tive and more secure. Cook­ies are small text files that are placed on your com­put­er and stored by your brows­er.

Most of the cook­ies we use are so-called „ses­sion cook­ies.“ They are auto­mat­i­cal­ly delet­ed after your leave our site. Oth­er cook­ies will remain archived on your device until you delete them. These cook­ies enable us to recog­nise your brows­er the next time you vis­it our web­site.

You can adjust the set­tings of your brows­er to make sure that you are noti­fied every time cook­ies are placed and to enable you to accept cook­ies only in spe­cif­ic cas­es or to exclude the accep­tance of cook­ies for spe­cif­ic sit­u­a­tions or in gen­er­al and to acti­vate the auto­mat­ic dele­tion of cook­ies when you close your brows­er. If you deac­ti­vate cook­ies, the func­tions of this web­site may be lim­it­ed.

Cook­ies that are required for the per­for­mance of the elec­tron­ic com­mu­ni­ca­tions trans­ac­tion or to pro­vide cer­tain func­tions you want to use (e.g. the shop­ping cart func­tion), are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The web­site oper­a­tor has a legit­i­mate inter­est in stor­ing cook­ies to ensure the tech­ni­cal­ly error free and opti­mised pro­vi­sion of the operator’s ser­vices. If oth­er cook­ies (e.g. cook­ies for the analy­sis of your brows­ing pat­terns) should be stored, they are addressed sep­a­rate­ly in this Data Pro­tec­tion Dec­la­ra­tion.

SERVER LOG FILES

The provider of this web­site and its pages auto­mat­i­cal­ly col­lects and stores infor­ma­tion in so-called serv­er log files, which your brows­er com­mu­ni­cates to us auto­mat­i­cal­ly. The infor­ma­tion com­pris­es:

  • The type and ver­sion of brows­er used
  • The used oper­at­ing sys­tem
  • Refer­rer URL
  • The host­name of the access­ing com­put­er
  • The time of the serv­er inquiry
  • The IP address

This data is not merged with oth­er data sources.

This data is record­ed on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The oper­a­tor of the web­site has a legit­i­mate inter­est in the tech­ni­cal­ly error free depic­tion and the opti­miza­tion of the operator’s web­site. In order to achieve this, serv­er log files must be record­ed.

REQUEST BY E‑MAIL, TELEPHONE OR FAX

If you con­tact us by e‑mail, tele­phone or fax, your request, includ­ing all result­ing per­son­al data (name, request) will be stored and processed by us for the pur­pose of pro­cess­ing your request. We do not pass these data on with­out your con­sent.

The pro­cess­ing of these data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your request is relat­ed to the exe­cu­tion of a con­tract or if it is nec­es­sary to car­ry out pre-con­trac­tu­al mea­sures. In all oth­er cas­es, the pro­cess­ing is based on your con­sent (Arti­cle 6 (1) a GDPR) and/or on our legit­i­mate inter­ests (Arti­cle 6 (1) (f) GDPR), since we have a legit­i­mate inter­est in the effec­tive pro­cess­ing of requests addressed to us.

The data sent by you to us via con­tact requests remain with us until you request us to delete, revoke your con­sent to the stor­age or the pur­pose for the data stor­age laps­es (e.g. after com­ple­tion of your request). Manda­to­ry statu­to­ry pro­vi­sions — in par­tic­u­lar statu­to­ry reten­tion peri­ods — remain unaf­fect­ed.

4. PLUG-INS AND TOOLS

YOUTUBE WITH EXPANDED DATA PROTECTION INTEGRATION

Our web­site uses plug-ins of the YouTube plat­form, which is being oper­at­ed by Google Ire­land Lim­it­ed („Google“), Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dublin 4, Ire­land.

We use YouTube in the expand­ed data pro­tec­tion mode. Accord­ing to YouTube, this mode ensures that YouTube does not store any infor­ma­tion about vis­i­tors to this web­site before they watch the video. Nev­er­the­less, this does not nec­es­sar­i­ly mean that the shar­ing of data with YouTube part­ners can be ruled out as a result of the expand­ed data pro­tec­tion mode. For instance, regard­less of whether you are watch­ing a video, YouTube will always estab­lish a con­nec­tion with the Google Dou­bleClick net­work.

As soon as you start to play a YouTube video on our web­site, a con­nec­tion to YouTube’s servers will be estab­lished. As a result, the YouTube serv­er will be noti­fied, which of our pages you have vis­it­ed. If you are logged into your YouTube account while you vis­it our site, you enable YouTube to direct­ly allo­cate your brows­ing pat­terns to your per­son­al pro­file. You have the option to pre­vent this by log­ging out of your YouTube account.

Fur­ther­more, after you have start­ed to play a video, YouTube will be able to place var­i­ous cook­ies on your device. With the assis­tance of these cook­ies, YouTube will be able to obtain infor­ma­tion about our web­site vis­i­tor. Among oth­er things, this infor­ma­tion will be used to gen­er­ate video sta­tis­tics with the aim of improv­ing the user friend­li­ness of the site and to pre­vent attempts to com­mit fraud. These cook­ies will stay on your device until you delete them.

Under cer­tain cir­cum­stances, addi­tion­al data pro­cess­ing trans­ac­tions may be trig­gered after you have start­ed to play a YouTube video, which are beyond our con­trol.

The use of YouTube is based on our inter­est in pre­sent­ing our online con­tent in an appeal­ing man­ner. Pur­suant to Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR, this is a legit­i­mate inter­est.

For more infor­ma­tion on how YouTube han­dles user data, please con­sult the YouTube Data Pri­va­cy Pol­i­cy under: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

GOOGLE MAPS

Via an API, this web­site uses the map­ping ser­vice Google Maps. The provider is Google Ire­land Lim­it­ed („Google“), Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dublin 4, Ire­land.

To enable the use of the Google Maps fea­tures, your IP address must be stored. As a rule, this infor­ma­tion is trans­ferred to one of Google’s servers in the Unit­ed States, where it is archived. The oper­a­tor of this web­site has no con­trol over the data trans­fer.

We use Google Maps to present our online con­tent in an appeal­ing man­ner and to make the loca­tions dis­closed on our web­site easy to find. This con­sti­tutes a legit­i­mate inter­est as defined in Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR.

For more infor­ma­tion on the han­dling of user data, please review Google’s Data Pri­va­cy Dec­la­ra­tion under: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

5. CUSTOM SERVICES

JOB APPLICATIONS

We offer web­site vis­i­tors the oppor­tu­ni­ty to sub­mit job appli­ca­tions to us (e.g. via e‑mail, via postal ser­vices on by sub­mit­ting the online job appli­ca­tion form). Below, we will brief you on the scope, pur­pose and use of the per­son­al data col­lect­ed from you in con­junc­tion with the appli­ca­tion process. We assure you that the col­lec­tion, pro­cess­ing and use of your data will occur in com­pli­ance with the applic­a­ble data pri­va­cy rights and all oth­er statu­to­ry pro­vi­sions and that your data will always be treat­ed as strict­ly con­fi­den­tial.

Scope and pur­pose of the col­lec­tion of data

If you sub­mit a job appli­ca­tion to us, we will process any affil­i­at­ed per­son­al data (e.g. con­tact and com­mu­ni­ca­tions data, appli­ca­tion doc­u­ments, notes tak­en dur­ing job inter­views, etc.), if they are required to make a deci­sion con­cern­ing the estab­lish­ment or an employ­ment rela­tion­ship. The legal grounds for the afore­men­tioned are § 26 New GDPR accord­ing to Ger­man Law (Nego­ti­a­tion of an Employ­ment Rela­tion­ship), Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR (Gen­er­al Con­tract Nego­ti­a­tions) and – pro­vid­ed you have giv­en us your con­sent – Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR. You may revoke any con­sent giv­en at any time. With­in our com­pa­ny, your per­son­al data will only be shared with indi­vid­u­als who are involved in the pro­cess­ing of your job appli­ca­tion.

If your job appli­ca­tion should result in your recruit­ment, the data you have sub­mit­ted will be archived on the grounds of § 26 New GDPR and Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR for the pur­pose of imple­ment­ing the employ­ment rela­tion­ship in our data pro­cess­ing sys­tem.

Data Archiv­ing Peri­od

If we should not be able to offer you a posi­tion, if you refuse a job offer, retract your appli­ca­tion, revoke your con­sent to the pro­cess­ing of your data or ask us to delete your data, we will store your trans­ferred data, incl. any phys­i­cal­ly sub­mit­ted appli­ca­tion doc­u­ments for a max­i­mum of 6 months after the con­clu­sion of the appli­ca­tion process (reten­tion peri­od) to enable us to track the details of the appli­ca­tion process in the event of dis­par­i­ties (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR).

YOU HAVE THE OPTION TO OBJECT TO THIS STORAGE/RETENTION OF YOUR DATA IF YOU HAVE LEGITIMATE INTERESTS TO DO SO THAT OUTWEIGH OUR INTERESTS.

Once the reten­tion peri­od has expired, the data will be delet­ed, unless we are sub­ject to any oth­er statu­to­ry reten­tion oblig­a­tions or if any oth­er legal grounds exist to con­tin­ue to store the data. If it should be fore­see­able that the reten­tion of your data will be nec­es­sary after the reten­tion peri­od has expired (e.g. due to immi­nent or pend­ing lit­i­ga­tion), the data shall not be delet­ed until the data have become irrel­e­vant. This shall be with­out prej­u­dice to any oth­er statu­to­ry reten­tion peri­ods.
