The responsible body is the natural or legal person who decides on the purpose and means of processing of personal data (e.g. names, email addresses etc.), either alone or in conjunction with others.

Storage duration

Unless a specific storage duration has been specified in this privacy policy, we will retain your personal data until the purpose of the data processing is no longer applicable. If you make a legitimate request for erasure or revoke your consent to data processing, your data will be erased unless we have any other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g. retention periods under tax or commercial law); in the latter case, the erasure will take place after these reasons cease to apply.

Note on data transfer to the United States

Our website includes tools from companies based in the United States. When these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to the US servers of the respective companies. We would like to make you aware that the United States is not a safe third country within the meaning of EU data protection law. US companies are required to disclose personal information to security authorities without the possibility of legal action by you as a data subject. Therefore, it cannot be excluded that US authorities (e.g. intelligence services) will process, evaluate and permanently store your data on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.

Revoking your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You have the right to revoke your consent at any time. The legality of the data processing carried out prior to revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right to object to the collection of data in special cases and to direct marketing (Article 21 GDPR)

If data is processed on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) GDPR, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which processing is based can be found in this privacy policy. If you file an objection, we will no longer process your relevant personal data unless we can demonstrate that there are compelling legitimate grounds to process it that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or if its processing is required for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims (objection according to Article 21(1) GDPR).

Where your personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for such marketing, including profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will no longer be used for direct marketing purposes (objection pursuant to Article 21(2) GDPR).

Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority

In the event of a breach of GDPR, the parties concerned shall have the right to appeal to a supervisory authority, specifically in the Member State of their habitual residence, place of work or place of suspected breach. The right of appeal shall be without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request direct transmission of the data to another responsible person, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content such as orders or requests that you send to us as a site operator, this page 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 padlock symbol in the browser line.

When SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you send to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information, erasure and rectification

Within the scope of the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right to obtain information, at any time and free of charge, about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients, as well as the purpose of data processing. You also have the right to request that this data be rectified or erased, where applicable. You can contact us about this, as well as with any further questions regarding personal data, at any time at the address given in the legal notice.

Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:

  • If you contest the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify this. While this verification process is ongoing, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted.
  • If the processing of your personal data was/is carried out unlawfully, you can request restriction of the data processing instead of erasure.
  • If we no longer require your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted instead of erased.
  • If you have filed an objection pursuant to Article 21(1) GDPR, your rights and our interests will have to be weighed against each other. While a decision as to whose interests prevail is outstanding, you have the right to request the processing of your personal data be restricted.

If you have chosen to restrict the processing of your personal data, such data - with the exception of its storage - may only be processed with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

Objection to promotional emails

We expressly object to the use of contact data published within the scope of the legal notice obligation to send unsolicited advertising and information material. The operators of this website reserve the right to take legal action in the case of the unsolicited receipt of advertising information, such as in the form of spam email.

7. Our own services

Handling applicant data

We enable you to submit job applications to us (e.g. by email, post or via an online application form). In the following, we will provide you with information about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected during the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing and use of your data will be in accordance with applicable data protection laws and all other statutory provisions and that your data will be treated as strictly confidential.

Scope and purpose of data collection

When you send us an application, we will process your personal data (e.g. contact and communications data, application documents, notes taken during interviews etc.), as far as this is necessary to make a decision on establishing an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is Section 26 of the new Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) under German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Article 6(1)(b) GDPR (general contract initiation) and - if you have given your consent - Article 6(1)(a) GDPR. You may revoke your consent at any time. Within our company, your personal data will only be shared with individuals who are involved in the processing of your application.

If your application is successful, the data you have submitted on the basis of Section 26 of the new Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and Article 6(1)(b) GDPR will be stored in our data processing systems for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship.

Data retention period

If we are unable to offer you a job, you reject a job offer or withdraw your application, we reserve the right to use the data you provide on the basis of our legitimate interests (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR) for up to six months from the end of the application procedure (rejection or withdrawal of the application). The data will then be erased and the physical application documents destroyed. The storage serves in particular as evidence in the event of a legal dispute. If it is evident that the data will be required after the six-month period has elapsed (e.g. due to an imminent or pending legal dispute), the data will not be erased until the purpose for further storage no longer applies.

A longer retention period may also take place if you have given the appropriate consent (Article 6(1)(a) GDPR) or if legal storage obligations prevent erasure.
