Fundamentally, we only collect and use personal data of our users to the extent necessary to provide our content and services and to provide a functional website. Collection and utilization of the personal data of our users is undertaken at regular intervals and only with the user's consent. An exception applies in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for circumstantial reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the affected person for processing procedures on their personal data, Art. 6 Para. 1(a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for processing personal data.
For processing personal data that is necessary for fulfilment of a contract to which the affected person is a party, Art. 6 Para. 1(b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing that is necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 Para. 1(c ) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis.
In the event that vitally important interests of the affected person or another natural person require processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1(d) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the affected person do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1(f) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.
The affected person's personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of retention ceases to exist. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the responsible party is subject. Data are also blocked or deleted once a retention period prescribed by the specified standards expires, unless there is a need for further retention of the data in order to conclude or fulfil a contract.
Every time you visit our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the invoking computer.
In doing so, the following data is collected:

Temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the delivery of the website to the user's device. To that end, the user's IP address has to be stored for the duration of the session.
The data are stored in log files to ensure the website's functionality. In addition, the data serve to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. No evaluation of the data for marketing purposes is performed in this connection.
These purposes also encompass our legitimate interest in data processing in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1(f) of the GDPR.
The data are deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of data collection for making the website available, deletion will be undertaken when the respective session has ended.
If any data are stored in log files, they will be deleted after seven days at the latest. Retention beyond this period is possible. In such a case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or defaced, so that it is no longer possible to correlate to the invoking client.
Collection of the data for making the website available and storage of the data in log files is essential for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no option for the user to object to the collection and retention.

We use personal data provided on contact forms only to make the requested contact. If contact is made via email, there is also the required legitimate interest in the processing of the data.
The other personal data processed during the sending process are used to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.
The data are deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. For the personal data from input screen of the contact form and the data that were sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has been completed. The conversation will be said to have ended when it is evident from the circumstances that the matter at hand has been conclusively resolved.
Personal data that were additionally collected during the sending procedure will be deleted at the latest after a period of seven days.
The user has the option of revoking his or her consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the user has contacted us by email, he may withdraw consent for the storage of his personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued.

The responsible entity collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of carrying out the application procedure. Processing may also be carried out electronically.

If the person responsible for the processing signs an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted shall be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the person responsible for the processing does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents shall be automatically deleted six months after notification of the decision of refusal, provided that no other legitimate interests of the person responsible for the processing stand in the way of the deletion. Other legitimate interests in this sense include, for example, retaining evidence for use in proceedings under AGG, the German Equal Opportunities Act.

You have the right to request information as to whether your personal data will be transmitted to a third-party country or an international organisation. In this connection, you can demand to be informed about the suitable guarantees in accordance with Art. 46 of the GDPR in conjunction with such a transmission.
If the processed personal data related to you is incorrect or incomplete, you have the right to demand rectification and/or completion by the responsible entity. The responsible entity must make the correction without delay.
You may ask for the processing of your personal data to be restricted under the following conditions:

If processing of the personal data that concerns you has been restricted, such data – apart from being stored – may be processed only with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending the rights or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or on the grounds of an important public interest of the European Union or of a Member State.
If the limitation of the processing has been restricted for any of the grounds listed above, the responsible entity will notify you before lifting the restriction.
You have the right to demand that the responsible entity delete your personal data without delay, and the responsible entity is obligated to delete these data without delay if one of the following reasons applies:

(5) to assert, exercise, or defend legal claims.
If you have asserted the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing to the responsible entity, the responsible entity is obliged to notify all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of this rectification or erasure of the data or the restriction of their processing, unless this proves to be impossible or involves a disproportionate amount of effort.

(2) the processing takes place through automated processes.
In exercising this right, you also have the right to bring about that the personal data relating to you are transmitted directly from one responsible entity to another, in so far as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons must not be violated as a result.
The right to data portability does not apply to processing of personal data that is required for the performance of a task that is in the public interest, or in the exercise of official authority conferred upon the responsible entity;
You have the right, for reasons arising from your specific situation, to object to the processing of your personal data which is being carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1(e) or (f) of the GDPR, at any time; this also applies to any profiling that is being carried out based on these provisions.

You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under the data privacy law at any time. Such a revocation will not affect the lawfulness of any processing done prior to the revocation. You can notify the withdrawal of consent either by post, e-mail or fax to the responsible entity.
You have the right not to be subjected to a decision based solely on automated processing – including profiling – that will have legal consequences for you or significantly hinder you in a similar manner. This does not apply if the decision
(1) is necessary for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract between you and the responsible entity,
(2) is permissible on the basis of legal stipulations of the EU or the Member States, to which the responsible entity is subject, and these legal stipulations include reasonable measures for guaranteeing your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests or
(3) is made with your express consent.
However, these decisions must not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 para. 1 of the GDPR, provided that Art. 9 para. 2(a) or (g) do not apply and reasonable measures were taken to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.
In the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the responsible entity shall take reasonable measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, which includes at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the responsible entity, the right to state his or her own position and to challenge the decision.
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right of appeal to a watchdog authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, workplace or where the infringement is suspected, if you are of the view that the processing of personal data that concerns you is in contravention of the GDPR.
The watchdog authority with whom the appeal is filed shall inform the appellant regarding the status and results of the appeal, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Art. 78 of the GDPR.
