The controller decides alone or jointly with others on the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, contact details or similar).
"Personal data" means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter "data subject" or user); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier (e.g. cookie) or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
"Processing" means any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means. The term is broad and covers virtually any handling of data.
"Pseudonymisation" means the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person;
"Profiling" means any automated processing of personal data which consists in using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or change of location;
"Controller" means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data
"Processor" means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller;
"Consent' means any freely given specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject's wishes, in the form of a statement or other unambiguous affirmative act, by which the data subject signifies his or her agreement to personal data relating to him or her being processed;
"Supervisory authority" means an independent public body established by a Member State pursuant to Article 51 GDPR;
"Health data" means personal data relating to the physical or mental health of a natural person, including the provision of health services, revealing information about that person's state of health;

To protect the transmission of confidential content that you send to us via this website and for security reasons, our website uses SSL or TLS encryption. This means that data you transmit via this website cannot be read by third parties. You can recognise the encrypted connection by the "https://" address line or the lock symbol on your browser.
Server log files
The provider of the website automatically collects and stores information in server log files that your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
This data is not merged with other sources of information. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
Our website is hosted by an external service provider (hoster). The web hosting provider is FORMALITY Deutschland, Lindenstr. 16N, 01917 Kamenz.
Information on data protection at FORMALITY Deutschland can be found here: https://www.formality.de/de/kontakt/datenschutz/
As soon as personal data is collected on this website, it is processed on the hoster's servers. The purpose of the processing is a secure, fast and efficient provision of our online offer.
The legal basis of the processing is the legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR to secure our internet presence.
In order to fully comply with the legal data protection requirements, we have concluded an order processing contract with FORMALITY Germany.
Legal basis of the processing
Article 6 I lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for the controller for processing operations where consent has been obtained from the data subject for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations which are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of enquiries about products or services. If the controller is subject to a legal obligation by which the processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of the controller or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47, second sentence of the GDPR).
Duration for which the personal data are stored
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding personal data is deleted if it is no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.
We store the data transmitted in the contact form together with your contact data in order to be able to process your enquiry or to be able to answer your further requests. Your data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.
The basis of the data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO, which permits the processing of data based on your consent. You can revoke your consent at any time without giving reasons. An informal communication by e-mail is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation. Die Rechtmäßigkeit, der bis zum Widerruf erfolgten Datenverarbeitungsvorgänge bleibt vom Widerruf unberührt.
The data transmitted via the contact form will be stored until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or there is no longer any need to store it. Mandatory legal provisions or retention periods remain unaffected.
If you contact us (by e-mail or telephone), the user's details will be processed for the purpose of handling the contact request and its processing pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. b) GDPR.
The user's details may be stored in our customer relationship management system ("CRM system") or comparable enquiry organisation.
The user's details are stored until you request us to delete them, revoke your consent to store them or there is no longer any need to store them. Mandatory legal provisions or retention periods remain unaffected.
One of the tools we use to communicate with our clients is online conferencing. If you communicate with us by video or audio conference via the Internet, your personal data is collected and processed by us.
The conference tools collect all data that you provide/enter to use the tools (e-mail address and/or your telephone number). Furthermore, the conference tools process the duration of the conference, start and end (time) of participation in the conference, number of participants and other "contextual information" related to the communication process (metadata).
Furthermore, we process all technical data that are necessary for handling the online communication. This includes in particular IP addresses, MAC addresses, device IDs, device type, operating system type and version, client version, camera type, microphone or loudspeaker and the type of connection.
If content is exchanged, uploaded or otherwise made available within the tool, this is also stored on the servers of the tool providers. Such content includes, in particular, cloud recordings, chat/ instant messages, voicemails uploaded photos and videos, files, whiteboards and other information shared while using the service.
Data collected directly by us through the video and conferencing tools will be deleted from our systems as soon as you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing it no longer applies. Stored cookies remain on your terminal device until you delete them. Mandatory legal retention periods remain unaffected.
The conference tools are used to communicate with prospective or existing contractual partners or to offer certain services to our customers (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b GDPR). Furthermore, the use of the tools serves the general simplification and acceleration of communication with us or our company (legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). Insofar as consent has been requested, the tools in question are used on the basis of this consent; consent can be revoked at any time with effect for the future.
Data protection in applications and the application process
If you send us your application documents, we process your personal data for the purpose of handling the application procedure. If you send us your application documents electronically, for example by e-mail or a web form, we will also process them electronically.
The personal data you send us will only be used to process your application for the advertised position. Your personal data will only be disclosed to persons involved in the application process. All employees entrusted with data processing are obliged to maintain the confidentiality of your data. We do not pass on your personal data to third parties unless you have consented to the passing on of data or we are obliged to pass on data due to legal provisions and/or official or court orders.
If you provide us with personal data as part of the application process, this data will be divided into the following data types and data categories for collection, processing and/or use:
If an employment contract is concluded with you, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If no employment contract is concluded with you, the data will be automatically deleted 6 months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the data controller oppose deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (ETA).
Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser or log out. These include, in particular, session cookies, which store a session ID that can be used to assign various requests from your browser to the joint session. Your computer can thus be recognised when you return to our website.
Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time, which may differ depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time.
As a website operator, we have a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR in storing the cookies in order to be able to provide our services smoothly and without technical errors. If other cookies are set (e.g. for analysis functions), these will be listed separately in this data protection declaration.
We use OpenStreetMap for directions. The provider is the OpenStreetMap Foundation, St John's Innovation Centre, Cowley Road, Cambridge, CB 4 0 WS, United Kingdom, hereinafter referred to as "OpenStreetMap".
When one of our Internet pages is called up in which the OpenStreetMap service is integrated, OpenStreetMap stores a cookie on the user's end device via the Internet browser. This processes the user settings and user data for the purpose of displaying the page or ensuring the functionality of the OpenStreetMap service. Through this processing, OpenStreetMap can recognise from which website a request has been sent by the user and to which IP address the display of the directions should be transmitted.
The legal basis of the processing is the legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR to improve our website.
If you do not agree to this processing, you have the option of preventing the installation of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your internet browser. Details on this can be found above under the item "Cookies".
OpenStreetMap offers at https://wiki.osmfoundation.org/wiki/Privacy_Policy for further information on the collection and use of data as well as on data subjects' rights and privacy protection options.
You have the right to obtain confirmation from the controller as to whether personal data concerning you are being processed.
Right to restrict processing
You have the right to request the controller to restrict processing if one of the following conditions is met:
Right of objection
You have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data relating to you that is carried out on the basis of Art. 6(1)(e) or (f) GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The controller shall no longer process your personal data in the event of the objection, unless it can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If the controller processes personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data processed for such marketing. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to the controller to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the controller will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her which is carried out by the controller for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the Data Protection Regulation, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.
The data subject is also free to exercise his or her right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications in the context of the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.
Right to complain to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of a breach of data protection law, you as a data subject have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority with regard to data protection law issues is the State Data Protection Commissioner of the federal state in which our company's registered office is located. The following link provides a list of data protection officers and their contact details: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in performance of a contract handed over to you or to third parties. Your data will be provided in a machine-readable format. If you request that the data be transferred directly to another person responsible, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.
Right to information, correction, deletion, blocking
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to free information about your stored personal data, the origin of the data, the purpose of the processing, its recipients and, if applicable, a right to correction, deletion or blocking of this data.
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Some data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. An informal message by e-mail is sufficient for this. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Automated decisions including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you, unless the decision:
(1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller; or
(2) is authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and that law contains suitable measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject; or
(3) is made with the express consent of the data subject.
If the decision is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the controller, or if it is made with the data subject's explicit consent, the controller shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a data subject on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.
