Google (Universal) Analytics

This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google"). Google (Universal) Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics exclusively with the extension "_anonymizeIp()", which ensures anonymisation of the IP address by shortening it and excludes direct personal reference. The extension means that your IP address is shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google LLC.server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on our behalf for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. In the process, the IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google (Universal) Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

Google Analytics also enables the creation of statistics with statements about the age, gender and interests of site visitors on the basis of an evaluation of interest-based advertising and with the inclusion of third-party information via a special function, the so-called "demographic characteristics". This allows the definition and differentiation of user groups of the website for the purpose of targeting marketing measures. However, data records collected via the "demographic characteristics" cannot be assigned to a specific person.
Details on the processing triggered by Google Analytics and Google's handling of data from websites can be found here: https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites

All of the processing described above, in particular the setting of Google Analytics cookies for the reading of information on the end device used, will only be carried out if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. Without this consent, Google Analytics will not be used during your visit to the website.

You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your revocation, please deactivate this service in the "Cookie Consent Tool" provided on the website. We have concluded an order processing agreement with Google for the use of Google Analytics, which obliges Google to protect the data of our site visitors and not to pass it on to third parties.

For the transfer of data from the EU to the USA, Google refers to the so-called standard data protection clauses of the European Commission, which are intended to ensure compliance with the European level of data protection in the USA.

Google Ads Remarketing

Our website uses the Google Ads Remarketing function to advertise this website in Google search results and on third-party websites. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google"). For this purpose, Google sets a cookie in the browser of your terminal device, which automatically enables interest-based advertising by means of a pseudonymous cookie ID and on the basis of the pages you visit. Further data processing will only take place if you have consented to Google linking your internet and app browsing history to your Google Account and using information from your Google Account to personalise the ads you see on the web. In this case, if you are logged into Google while visiting our website, Google will use your data together with Google Analytics data to create and define target group lists for cross-device remarketing. For this purpose, your personal data will be temporarily linked by Google with Google Analytics data in order to form target groups. The use of Google Ads Remarketing may also involve the transmission of personal data to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.

Details on the processing triggered by Google Ads Remarketing and Google's handling of data from websites can be found here: https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites

  1. Use of Youtube videos

    This website uses the Youtube embedding function to display and play videos from the provider "Youtube", which belongs to Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google").
    The extended data protection mode is used here, which, according to the provider, only triggers the storage of user information when the video(s) is/are played. If the playback of embedded Youtube videos is started, the provider "Youtube" uses cookies to collect information about user behaviour. According to information from "Youtube", these are used, among other things, to collect video statistics, to improve user-friendliness and to prevent abusive behaviour. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account when you click on a video. If you do not wish to have your data associated with your YouTube profile, you must log out before activating the button. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube to exercise this right. When using YouTube, personal data may also be transmitted to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.

    Independently of a playback of the embedded videos, a connection to the Google network is established each time this website is called up, which may trigger further data processing operations without our influence.
    All processing described above, in particular the reading of information on the end device used via the tracking-pixel, will only be carried out if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with art. 6 (1) a GDPR. Without this consent, Youtube videos will not be used during your visit to the site.

    You can revoke your given consent at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your revocation, please deactivate this service in the "cookie consent tool" provided on the website via alternative options communicated to you on the website.

  2. Applications to job advertisements by e-mail

    We advertise current vacancies on our website in a separate section, for which interested parties can apply by e-mail to the contact address provided.
    Inclusion in the application process requires that applicants provide us with all the personal data necessary for a sound and informed assessment and selection together with the application by e-mail.
    The required information includes general personal information (name, address, telephone or electronic contact details) and performance-related evidence of the qualifications required for a position. If necessary, health-related information may also be required, which must be given special consideration under labour and social law in the interest of social protection in the person of the applicant.
    The components that an application must contain in order to be considered and the form in which these components must be sent by e-mail can be found in the respective job advertisement.

    After receipt of the application sent using the specified e-mail contact address, the applicant data will be stored by us and evaluated exclusively for the purpose of processing the application. For queries arising in the course of processing, we use either the e-mail address provided by the applicant with his/her application or a telephone number provided, at our discretion.
    The legal basis for this processing, including contacting us for queries, is generally art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR (for processing in Germany in conjunction with § 26 para. 1 BDSG), in the sense of which going through the application process is considered to be the initiation of an employment contract.

    Insofar as special categories of personal data within the meaning of art. 9 (1) GDPR (e.g. health data such as information on severely disabled status) are requested from applicants as part of the application process, the processing is carried out in accordance with art. 9 (2) lit. b. GDPR. GDPR so that we can exercise the rights arising from labour law and social security and social protection law and fulfil our obligations in this regard.
    Cumulatively or alternatively, the processing of the special categories of data may also be based on art. 9(1)(h) GDPR if it is carried out for the purposes of preventive health care or occupational medicine, for the assessment of the applicant's fitness for work, for medical diagnosis, health or social care or treatment or for the management of health or social care systems and services.

    If the applicant is not selected in the course of the evaluation described above, or if an applicant withdraws his/her application prematurely, his/her data transmitted by e-mail and all electronic correspondence, including the original application e-mail, will be deleted at the latest after 6 months following notification. This period is measured on the basis of our legitimate interest in answering any follow-up questions about the application and, if necessary, to be able to comply with our obligations to provide evidence under the regulations on equal treatment of applicants.
    In the event of a successful application, the data provided will be further processed on the basis of art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR (for processing in Germany in conjunction with § 26 para. 1 BDSG) for the purposes of implementing the employment relationship.

Through the use of the tool, all cookies/services requiring consent are only loaded if the respective user gives the corresponding consent by ticking the corresponding box. This ensures that such cookies are only set on the respective end device of the user if consent has been granted.

    The tool sets technically necessary cookies to save your cookie preferences. Personal user data is generally not processed.
    If, in individual cases, personal data (such as the IP address) is processed for the purpose of storing, assigning or logging cookie settings, this is done in accordance with art. 6 (1) f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in a legally compliant, user-specific and user-friendly consent management for cookies and thus in a legally compliant design of our website.
    Further legal basis for the processing is art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR. As the responsible party, we are subject to the legal obligation to make the use of technically unnecessary cookies dependent on the respective user consent.
    Further information on the operator and the setting options of the cookie consent tool can be found directly in the corresponding user interface on our website.

  3. Google Maps

    On our website we use Google Maps (API) from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google"). Google Maps is a web service for displaying interactive (land) maps in order to visually present geographical information. By using this service, you will be shown our location and it will be easier for you to find us.

    Information about your use of our website (such as your IP address) is transmitted to Google servers and stored there when you call up those sub-pages in which the Google Maps map is integrated; this information may also be transmitted to Google LLC servers in the USA. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account via which you are logged in or whether a user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not wish to have your data associated with your Google profile, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and evaluates them. The collection, storage and analysis are carried out in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR on the basis of Google's legitimate interest in displaying personalised advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of Google websites. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact Google to exercise this right. If you do not agree to the future transmission of your data to Google in the context of the use of Google Maps, you also have the option of completely deactivating the Google Maps web service by switching off the JavaScript application in your browser. Google Maps and thus also the map display on this website can then not be used.

    You can read Google's terms of use at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/terms/regional.html , the additional terms of use for Google Maps can be found at https://www.google.com/intl/de_US/help/terms_maps.html

    Insofar as legally required, we have obtained your consent for the processing of your data as described above in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. In order to exercise your revocation, please follow the option described above for making an objection.

17) Duration of the storage of personal data

The duration of the storage of personal data is determined on the basis of the respective legal basis, the purpose of processing and - if relevant - additionally on the basis of the respective statutory retention period (e.g. retention periods under commercial and tax law).
If personal data is processed on the basis of explicit consent pursuant to art. 6 (1) a GDPR, this data will be stored until the person concerned revokes his/her consent.

If there are statutory retention periods for data that is processed within the scope of legal or quasi-legal obligations on the basis of art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, this data will be routinely deleted after expiry of the retention periods, insofar as it is no longer required for the fulfilment of the contract or the initiation of the contract and/or there is no further justified interest on our part in the continued storage.
When processing personal data on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, such data shall be stored until the data subject exercises his/her right to object pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

When processing personal data for the purpose of direct marketing on the basis of art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, such data shall be stored until the data subject exercises his or her right to object pursuant to art. 21(2) GDPR.
Unless otherwise stated in the other information in this declaration on specific processing situations, stored personal data will otherwise be deleted when it is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
