Deletion of data and storage periods

 

Unless otherwise stated, we will delete or anonymize your data as soon as it is no longer needed (e.g. your e-mail address after you have unsubscribed from a newsletter). Your data will also be deleted or anonymized automatically if the mandatory storage period expires, except when such data is required to be stored for a contract or performance of contract. Such data may be needed for longer periods of time for legal reasons. You can request information about all personal data we have stored about you.

 

Visiting our website

 

If you merely wish to browse our website, we do not collect any personal data, with the exception of the data that your browser sends to us, e.g.:

 

  • IP address (e.g. 97.93.116.example or 2a02:7122:99222:1112:bdb2:723f:example)

  • Approximate location based on IP range (e.g. "Berlin city")

  • Internet provider (e.g. "Telecom" or „AT&T")

  • Internet connection speed (e.g. 120 Mbit)

  • Date and time of visit (e.g. 11:45 on 25.05.2018)

  • Last visited website (e.g. google.com)

  • Browser and version (e.g. Chrome or Safari)

  • Operating system (e.g. Mac OS)

  • Hardware (e.g. Intel processor)

 

As a safeguard to protect your privacy, we delete or make anonymous the IP address after previously defined periods on our website. It will only serve anonymous and statistical purposes to optimise our website. The purpose of temporarily storing this data is necessary to establish a connection as well as loading our website the way it was designed to. Such data is therefore required to display the website on your screen, to avoid display problems and other technical error messages. The legal basis is the legitimate interest which we evaluated in accordance with the European data protection requirements under Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Applicant data

 

We collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of carrying out the application procedure. The processing can also be done electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends us the relevant application documents electronically, e.g. by e-mail. If we conclude an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If there is no employment, the application documents will be deleted 6 months after the end of the application procedure, provided that no other legitimate interests of ours oppose the deletion. Another legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, the burden of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act.

Cookies

 

Our website partially uses so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files that are usually stored in a folder of your browser. Cookies contain information about the current or last visit to the website:

 

  • Name of the website

  • Expiration date of the cookie

  • Any value

 

If cookies do not contain an exact expiration date, they are stored only temporarily and are automatically deleted as soon as you close your browser or restart your device. Cookies with an expiration date will still be stored even when you close your browser or restart your device. Such cookies will not be deleted until the specified date or if you delete them manually.

 

We use the following three types of cookies on our website:

 

  • required cookies (cookies that are required, e.g. to display the website correctly for you and to store certain settings temporarily)

  • functional and performance-related cookies (cookies that help us improve our website, e.g. to evaluate technical data of your visit and avoid error messages)

  • advertising and analytics cookies (cookies that provide analytics and personalized ads, e.g. advertising for shoes is displayed if you have previously searched for shoes)

 

You can configure, block and delete cookies in your browser settings. If you delete all cookies from our website, some functions of the website may not be displayed correctly. The Federal Office for Information Security provides helpful information and instructions for common browsers: https://www.bsi-fuer-buerger.de/BSIFB/DE/Empfehlungen/EinrichtungSoftware/EinrichtungBrowser/Sicherheitsmassnahmen/Cookies/cookies_node.html

 

With the exception of the technically required cookies, the other types of cookies are only activated after express consent has been given. This consent can be revoked at any time. The option of revocation and further information can be found in the cookie settings.

Google Fonts

 

For the visual improvement of the fonts we use Google Fonts (https://fonts.google.com) from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"), a font collection from Google. These fonts are transferred to the storage folder of your browser and activated when you visit this website or other websites. If this is not supported, the text on the web page will only be displayed in a default font. To make this possible, a request is sent to domains such as fonts.googleapis.com or fonts.gstatic.com, which for technical reasons contains your IP address. However, your data will not be merged with other data or traced back to your person.

 

As a safeguard to protect your privacy, we have assured ourselves that the retrieval of Google's font collection does not merge the data with other Google services, e.g. if you have a Google user account. Information on data protection at Google Fonts confirms this (https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq). In addition, the high security standards of the Google platform and the associated privacy policy of Google (http://www.google.com/privacy) apply. Since Google is based in the USA and thus a so-called third country, further guarantees are required to ensure an adequate level of European data protection. Google provides standard contractual clauses which help to contractually ensure an adequate level of data protection. The standard contractual clauses have been evaluated and mutually coordinated.

The purpose of transmitting the data is the correct display of the fonts in the layout specified by us. The IP address is required to connect to Google's servers to download the font library, if it is not already stored on the device. The legal basis is the legitimate interest which we evaluated in accordance with the European data protection requirements under Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

 

Google Tag Manager

 

This website uses the Google Tag Manager. This service allows website tags to be managed through an interface. The Google Tool Manager only implements tags. That means: no cookies are used and no personal data is collected. The Google Tool Manager triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. However, the Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at domain or cookie level, it will remain for all tracking tags as long as they are implemented with the Google Tag Manager.

 

Goolge Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). Google Analytics uses the advertising and analytics cookies described above to analyze our website with regard to your usage behavior. The information generated by these cookies is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, your IP address is shortened before the usage statistics are evaluated, so that no direct connection to you as a person can be made. For this purpose, we use the "anonymizeIp" function to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses. Google will use the anonymous information collected by the cookies to evaluate the usage of the website and to compile reports on website activity. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google.

 

You can also configure your browser to refuse cookies, or you can prevent Google from collecting and analyzing the data by downloading and installing a browser plug-in (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en) from Google. As an alternative to the browser add-on or within browsers on mobile devices, you can set an opt-out cookie to prevent future collection by Google Analytics within this website (the opt-out only works in the browser and only for this domain). If you delete your cookies in this browser, you must click this link again.

 

As a safeguard to protect your privacy, we use the anonymization feature offered by Google as mentioned above, whereas analytics are not based on you as a person, but only on a statistical basis. In addition, the high security standards of the Google platform and its data privacy policy apply (http://www.google.com/privacy). We have also concluded a special data protection agreement with Google, which ensures to protect your data through technical and organizational security measures. Since Google is based in the USA and thus in a third country, further safeguards are required to ensure that your data is protected in accordance with a European level of data protection. Google provides standard contractual clauses which help to contractually ensure an adequate level of data protection. The standard contractual clauses have been evaluated and mutually coordinated. The purpose of the use of Google Analytics is to anonymously analyze usage behavior of our websites. The information collected helps us to improve our services. The legal basis is the legitimate interest which we evaluated in accordance with the European data protection requirements under Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

 

Google Maps

 

To make it easier to reach us, we have integrated the map function of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google") via an interface (API). For technical reasons, your IP address is transmitted to the Google servers so that the map showing our location can be displayed in your browser.

 

The high security standards of the Google platform and the associated data protection declaration of Google (http://www.google.com/intl/de-DE/privacy) apply as protective measures.

The purpose of the data transfer is to integrate the Google map function popular among our users, which allows our location to be displayed graphically without having to leave our website. The legal basis is the so-called legitimate interest, which has been examined to pursue the purpose and within the scope of the aforementioned protective measures and in accordance with the European data protection requirements from Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

 

BingAds

 

We also use Bing Ads, with which data is collected and stored, from which user profiles are created using pseudonyms. This is a service of Microsoft Corporation, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399, USA. This service allows us to track the activities of users on our site when they come to our site through ads from Bing Ads. If you come to our site through such an ad, a cookie is placed on your computer. A Bing UET tag is included on our website. This is a code that is used in conjunction with the cookie to store some non-personal information about your use of the website. This information includes, but is not limited to, the time spent on the site, what areas of the site have been accessed, and which ad was used to access the site. Information about your identity is not recorded. The information collected is transferred to Microsoft servers in the USA and stored there for a maximum of 180 days. You can prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the site and the processing of this data by disabling cookies. This may restrict the functionality of the website under certain circumstances.

In addition, Microsoft may use cross-device tracking to track your usage across multiple electronic devices and may be able to display personalized advertisements on or in Microsoft Web pages and apps. You can disable this behavior at http://choice.microsoft.com/de-de/opt-out.

For more information about privacy at Microsoft and Bing, please see the Microsoft Privacy Policy https://privacy.microsoft.com/de-de/privacystatement

As a protective measure, an evaluation of the data is not based on your person, but only on a statistical basis. We have also concluded a special data protection agreement, which prescribes the protection of your data through technical and organizational protective measures. Since Microsoft is based in the USA and thus a so-called third country, further guarantees are required to ensure an adequate European level of data protection. Microsoft has signed appropriate EU standard contract clauses with us for this purpose.

The purpose of using BingAds is the anonymized analysis of your usage behavior on our websites. The insights gained from this analysis help us to improve our offer. Legal basis is your consent according to art. 6 para 1 a GDPR.
