The legal basis for the transmission of person-related data is your consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR and/or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR, which you have given on our internet site.

Google Tag Manager offers a technical platform for running other web tools and web tracking programs using so-called "tags" and to control them in a centralized way. In this context, Google Tag Manager stores cookies on your computer and, insofar as web-tracking tools are run by Google Tag Manager, analyses your web surfing behaviour (so-called "tracking"). The data created by the "tags" is compiled under a unified user interface and is stored and processed. All the included "tags" are listed in this data protection declaration. In the context of the use of our website and the activated integration of "tags" from Google-Tag-Manager, data such as your IP address and your user activities is transmitted to servers of the company Google. Through IP anonymization of the source code, the tracking tools used in Google Tag Manager ensure that the IP address is anonymized by Google Tag Manager before it is transmitted. With Google Tag Manager data from various service providers (Google and third-party providers) can be linked and evaluated on the basis of so-called tag management. Google Tag Manager helps us to put together reports about website activities and to control the web tools of our internet site.

For the processing itself, the service/we collect the following data: cookies, web tracking data, incoming or outgoing links, information arising from the integration and activation of JavaScript code on the website from Google Tag Manager and the web tools triggered by Google Tag Manager.

Information on the Use of Cookies

Which Person-Related Data is Collected and to What Extent is this Processed?

On various pages we integrate and use cookies to enable the use of particular functions of our website and to integrate external web services. The so-called "cookies" are small text files that your browser can place on your computer. These text files contain a chain of characters that clearly identify the browser when you come back to our website again. The process of storing a cookie file is also known as "setting a cookie". Cookies can be set by the website itself or by external Web services. The cookies are set by our website or the external web services in order to obtain the full functionality of our website, to improve user-friendliness or to pursue the purpose stated with your consent. The cookie technology also enables us to identify individual users on the basis of pseudonyms, e.g. individual or random IDs, so that we can offer more individual services. The details are contained in the table below.

Legal Basis for the Processing of Person-Related Data

Insofar as the cookies are processed on the basis of consent according to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR, this consent will also be deemed to be consent in the sense of Section 25 Para. 1 TTDSG (Telecommunications Telemedia Data Protection Act) for the setting of the cookie on the user's device. Insofar as another legal basis is mentioned in accordance with the GDPR (e.g. for the fulfilment of a contract or for the fulfilment of legal obligations), the storage or setting of cookies is carried out on the basis of an exception in accordance with Section 25 Para. 2 TTDSG. This is the case "if the sole purpose of storing information in the end-user's equipment or the sole purpose of accessing information already stored in the end-user's equipment is to carry out the transmission of a communication over a public telecommunications network" or "if the storage of information in the end-user's equipment or the access to information already stored in the end-user's equipment is strictly necessary to enable the provider of a telemedia service to provide a telemedia service explicitly requested by the user". Which legal basis applies can be determined from the cookie table shown later in this section.

Purpose of Data Processing

The cookies are set by our website or the external web services in order to maintain the full functionality of our internet site, improve user-friendliness or to pursue the purpose agreed to with your consent. The cookie technology also makes it possible for us to recognize individual users through pseudonyms, e.g. an individual arbitrary ID, so that it is possible for us to offer more Individual services. Details are shown in the table below.

Duration of Storage

The storage of our cookies takes place until deletion in your browser or, in the case of a session cookie, until the session ends. The details are shown in the table below.

Possibilities for Objection and Removal

You can set up your browser so that the setting of cookies is prevented in general. You can then decide from case to case whether to accept cookies or you can generally accept cookies. Cookies can be used for various purposes, e.g. to recognize that your access device is already connected with our website (permanent cookies) or to store recently viewed content (session cookies). If you have specifically given your consent to the processing of your person-related data, you can withdraw this consent at any time. Please be aware that the legality of the processing performed before the withdrawal of consent is not affected by this withdrawal.

Data Security and Data Protection, Communication via E-mail

Your person-related data is protected by technical and organizational measures in the collection, storage and processing so that it is not accessible to third parties. In the case of unencrypted communication via E-mail we cannot guarantee complete data security during transmission to our IT systems so that for information with a high necessity for secrecy we recommend encrypted communication or the use of postal services.

Automatic E-mail Archiving

  • Extent of processing of person-related data

We specifically inform you that our E-mail system disposes of an automated archiving procedure. All incoming and outgoing E-mails are archived digitally in a manner that is secure for auditing.

  • Legal basis for the processing of person-related data

Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c GDPR (legal obligation). The legal obligation lies in the observation of taxation and trade legislation (e.g. §§ 146, 147 AO, §§ 238, 257 HGB).

  • Purpose of the data processing

The purpose of the archiving lies in the observation of taxation legislation (e.g. §§ 146, 147 AO – obligation to keep taxation-relevant E-mails) and trade legislation (e.g. §§ 238, 257 HGB – obligation to archive business correspondence).

  • Duration of data storage

The storage of our E-mail communication takes place until the expiry of the storage obligations according to the taxation and trade legislation. The duration of storage can be up to 10 years.

  • Objection and data deletion possibilities

You can object to this processing according to Art. 21 GDPR at any time and demand deletion of the data according to Art. 17 GDPR. Which rights you have and how you can assert these rights can be found in the lower area of this data protection declaration.

  • Handling of job application documents

If you have questions relating to our E-mail archiving system, please contact our Data Protection Officer. In addition, we would like to point out that we only accept application documents in PDF file format. Zipped files (WinZip, WinRAR, 7Zip, etc.) are filtered out by our security systems and are not delivered. We do not accept applications in Word file format or other file formats and delete them unread. Please note that application documents sent unencrypted by E-mail could possibly be opened by third parties before they reach our IT systems. We assume that unencrypted application E-mails may also be answered in an unencrypted manner. If you do not wish this to happen, please inform us of this in your application E-mail.
