In the following you will find information on how we handle your data collected by your use of our website. Your data will be processed in accordance with the legal provisions on data protection.
How do we collect your data?
On the one hand, your data is collected when you provide it to us. This may be data that you enter in a contact form, for example.
Other data is automatically collected by our IT systems when you visit the website. This is mainly technical data (e.g. internet browser, operating system or time of the page call). This data is collected automatically as soon as you enter our website.

Server log files
When you call up our website, it is technically necessary for data to be transmitted to our web server via your internet browser. The following data is recorded during an on–going connection for communication between your internet browser and our web server:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Hostname of your computer
- Time of server request
- IP address
We collect the listed data to ensure a smooth connection of the website and to enable a comfortable use of our website by the visitors. In addition, the log file serves to evaluate system security and stability as well as for administrative purposes. The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data or log files is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
We use so-called cookies on our website. Cookies are small text files which are stored on the storage medium of your terminal device, e.g. on a hard disk, and which provide us with certain information. Cookies cannot execute programs or transfer viruses to your end device. This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and function of which are explained below.
Cookies stored with your web browser:
- Transient cookies: these cookies are automatically deleted when you close your web browser. They include in particular session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, which can be used to assign various requests from your web browser to the session in cooperation. This enables your terminal device to be recognised when you return to our website. Session cookies are deleted as soon as you log out or close your web browser.
- Persistent cookies: these cookies are automatically deleted after a defined period of time, which may vary depending on the cookie. You can delete these cookies at any time in the settings of your web browser.
The processing of personal data by the above-mentioned cookies helps to make our website more user-friendly and effective for you. Some functions of our website cannot be offered without the use of these cookies. In particular, some functions of our website require that your web browser can still be identified after a page change. The data processed by cookies, which are necessary for the provision of our website functions, are not used to create user profiles. As far as cookies are used for analysis purposes, the individual application is dealt with separately below.
As far as cookies are technically necessary, our legitimate interest in data processing lies in the above-mentioned purposes. The legal basis in these cases is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. In all other cases, the legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR (your consent).
The above-mentioned cookies are stored on your terminal device and transmitted from there to our server. You can therefore configure the processing of data and information by cookies yourself. You can make appropriate configurations in the settings of your web browser, by which you can, for example, reject third-party cookies or cookies altogether. In this context, we would like to point out that you may then not be able to use all functions of our website properly. In addition, we recommend that you delete cookies and your browser history on a regular basis.
Contact form and contact per email
If you send us enquiries by email, your details from your email including the contact details provided there will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and for follow-up questions. An email address is required for contact purposes; the provision of your name and telephone number is voluntary. Under no circumstances will we pass on this data without your consent. The legal basis for the processing of the data is our legitimate interest in answering your request in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR and Art. 6 Para. 1 letter b GDPR, in case your request is aimed at the conclusion of a contract. Your data will be deleted after the final processing of your enquiry, provided that there are no legal storage obligations to the contrary. In case of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR, you can object to the processing of your personal data at any time.
When you apply for a job with us, we collect personal data. This includes in particular your contact details (such as first and last name, title, postal address, telephone number and email address of the user) as well as other data provided about your background (e.g. curriculum vitae, qualifications, academic degrees and professional experience) and your person (e.g. cover letter, personal interests). This may also include special categories of personal data (e.g. information on a severe disability). As a rule, your personal data is collected directly from you during the application procedure and is encrypted during electronic transmission.
The data processing serves to initiate an employment relationship. The primary legal basis for this is Art. 6 Para. 1 b GDPR in conjunction with Art. 26 Para. 1 BDSG. In addition, consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a, 7 GDPR in conjunction with Art. 26 (2) BDSG can be used as a permission requirement under data protection law. If the processing of your data is based on consent, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future.
Within our company, only those persons and positions (e.g. human resources) have access to your personal data who absolutely need it to carry out the application procedure or to fulfil our legal obligations. For this purpose, your application will be forwarded to the responsible person for examination. Under no circumstances will your personal data be passed on to third parties without authorisation.
Your data for an application for a specific job advertisement will be stored and processed by us during the on-going application process. Once the application process has been completed (e.g. in the form of an acceptance or rejection), the application process including all personal data will be deleted from the system 6 months after the application process is completed. In the event of an acceptance, we reserve the right to keep your application for a longer period of time if the date of entry is more than six months in the future.
Analysis tools and advertisement
Our website uses Google Analytics, an internet analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies and web beacons.
Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website and to generate reports on website activity. Google will also use this information to provide the website operator with further services related to the use of the website and the internet. The IP address sent by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google. Processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 letter a GDPR on the basis of the consent you have given.
We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymisation. This means that your IP address will only be processed by Google in abbreviated form.
We have concluded an order processing contract with the service provider in which we oblige him to protect the data of our customers and not to pass them on to third parties.
As a transfer of personal data to the USA takes place, further protective mechanisms are required to ensure the level of data protection of the GDPR. In order to guarantee this, we have agreed standard data protection clauses with the provider in accordance with Art. 46 Para. 2 lit. c GDPR. These clauses oblige the recipient of the data in the USA to process the data in accordance with the level of protection in Europe. In cases in which this cannot be guaranteed even by this contractual extension, we will endeavour to obtain additional regulations and commitments from the recipient in the USA.
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. Data at user and event level linked to cookies, user identification (e.g. User ID) and advertising IDs (e.g. DoubleClick cookies, Android advertising ID, IDFA [Apple identifier for advertisers]) will be deleted at the latest 14 months after their collection.
You can prevent the saving of cookies by adjusting the settings of your browser software accordingly. Please note that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website without restriction. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and analysing your use of the website (including your IP address) and processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
Plugins and tools
On our website we include videos from “YouTube”, a social media platform of Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, Barrow St, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter referred to as “Google”).
By using the Service, personal data is transferred to the USA. The legal basis for the transfer of your personal data to the USA is your consent pursuant to Art. 49 Para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR. Please note that such a transfer of personal data without an Adequacy Decision and without suitable guarantees involves a risk for you. The risk is that due to legislation in the USA, the personal data may be accessed by American authorities (in particular the intelligence services). Legal protection options or information on the handling of your data by the US authorities are only possible to a very limited extent or not at all. A level of data protection in accordance with the provisions of the GDPR can therefore not be guaranteed.

On our website, we use the offer of Google Maps, an online map service of Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, Barrow St, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter referred to as “Google”). This enables us to display interactive maps directly on the website and allows you to use the map function conveniently. When you visit our website, Google receives information that you have visited the relevant subpage of our website. Your IP address is transmitted in the process. This happens regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in at Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not wish to be assigned to your profile on Google, you must log out first. Google stores your data as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or need-based design of the website. Such evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide need-based advertisement and to inform other users about your activities on our website.
We use Google Maps to display interactive maps from Google Maps to provide you with a better user experience of our website.
By using the service, personal data is transferred to the USA. The legal basis for the transfer of your personal data to the USA is your consent pursuant to Art. 49 Para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR. Please note that such transfers of personal data without a Adequacy Decision and without suitable guarantees involve a risk for you. The risk is that due to legislation in the USA, the personal data may be accessed by American authorities (in particular the intelligence services). Legal protection options or information on the handling of your data by the US authorities are only possible to a very limited extent or not at all. A level of data protection in accordance with the provisions of the GDPR can therefore not be guaranteed.

Storage period of personal data
The duration of the storage of personal data is determined by the relevant legal retention periods (e.g. under commercial law and tax law). After expiry of the respective period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted. If data is required for the fulfilment or initiation of a contract, or if we have a legitimate interest in its further storage, the data will be deleted when it is no longer required for these purposes or when you exercise your right of revocation or objection.
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
In the following, you will find information on the rights of data subjects which the applicable data protection law grants you towards the responsible party with regard to the processing of your personal data:
