§ 3 Collection of personal data when visiting our website

(1) Use of server logfiles

Every time a data subject or automated system accesses the website, some general data and information is recorded in log files. This includes an Internet protocol address (IP address), which browser and version were used, the website from which an accessing system arrives at our website (the so-called referrer), the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, the date and time of access and other similar data and information that serves as an active defense in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is based on Art. 6 (1) f GDPR with the abovementioned legitimate interests.

Temporarily storing the IP address is necessary to ensure that the website is delivered to the user's computer. As a result, the user's IP address must be stored for the duration of the session.

This data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data helps us to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. This is also based on our legitimate interest in data processing in accordance with Art. 6 (1) f GDPR. The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose it was collected for. When the data is collected to provide the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended. Collecting the data and storing it in log files are required for the operation of the website. Another way of checking the logfiles is if, based on tangible evidence, there is a justified suspicion of illegal use or a definite attack on our website. Our legitimate interest in the processing is for clarification and criminal prosecution of such attacks and illegal use.

(2) Use of cookies

“Cookies” are small files that are stored on users' devices. They are either stored temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies) on your end device. Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them yourself or until they are automatically deleted by your web browser. Cookies can be used to store different information. The information can include, for example, the language settings on a website or where a video was viewed.

As a rule, cookies are also used when the interests of a user or his/her behavior (e.g. viewing certain content, using functions, etc.) are stored on individual web pages in a user profile. Such profiles are used, for example, to show users content that corresponds to their potential interests. This process is also referred to as “tracking”, i.e. tracking the potential interests of users. The term “cookies” also includes other technologies that perform the same functions as cookies (e.g., when user information is stored using pseudonymous online identifiers also known as “user IDs”).

If we use cookies or “tracking” technologies, we will inform you separately in our privacy policy.

Information on the legal basis: The legal basis for processing your personal data using cookies depends on whether we ask you for your consent. If this is the case and you consent to the use of cookies, the legal basis for processing your data is the declared consent (Art. 6 (1) a GDPR). Otherwise, the data processed using cookies will be processed on the basis of our legitimate interests ((Art. 6 (1)  f GDPR), e.g. in a commercial operation of our online offer and its improvement) or if the use of cookies is necessary to fulfill our contractual obligations (Art. 6 (1) b GDPR).

General information on revocation and objection (opt-out): Regardless of whether the processing is based on consent or legal permission, at any time, you can revoke any consent you have given or to object to or revoke the processing of your data by cookie technologies (collectively referred to as “opt-out”).

You can initially declare your objection using the settings of your browser, e.g. by deactivating the use of cookies (although this may also limit the functionality of our online service).

Processing cookie data based on consent: Before we process or allow data to be processed in the context of cookies, we ask users for their consent; this can be revoked at any time. Before this consent is given, cookies are only used if they are necessary for the operation of our online offer. Their use is based on our interest and the interest of the users in the expected functionality of our online offer.

Cookie settings/objection options:

Personal data which is processed by us in the context of a general contact inquiry by email, telephone or fax is only stored until the respective correspondence is completed. The conversation is finished when it can be concluded from the circumstances that the matter in question has been finally clarified. Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

If you contact us by e-mail, you can of course object to the storage of your personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued.

Our website also provides a contact form that can be used to contact us electronically. The data entered by the user will be transmitted to us and stored. This includes your last name and your business email address as mandatory fields; all other information is voluntary.

If contact is made to conclude a contract, the execution of pre-contractual measures and any subsequent processing for the fulfillment of a contract must also include the legal basis for processing according to Art. 6 (1) b GDPR.

During the application process, the highest possible protection of your personal data must be ensured.

We process personal applicant data such as name, contact data, curriculum vitae, etc. for the selection or hiring process in the applicant process to fill positions in the company.

The legal basis for processing your personal data is the establishment, execution and termination of a contractual relationship according to Art. 6 (1) b GDPR, the fulfillment of a legal obligation according to Art. 6 (1) c GDPR, as well as on the basis of your consent through the voluntary provision of data that are not absolutely necessary for the purpose (e.g. hobbies in the CV).

In addition, processing is carried out on the basis of legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 (1) f GDPR:

  • to optimize our application processes,
  • to ensure compliance regulations, industry standards and contractual obligations,
  • to assert, exercise or defend legal claims,
  • and to avoid damage and/or liability of our company by taking appropriate measures.

After the respective purpose has been achieved, your data will be deleted but before that, it will be kept as long as it is necessary for the defense of legal claims or against possible AGG (General Act on Equal Treatment) accusations according to § 15 AGG “Compensation and damages in case of violation of the prohibition of discrimination”. This is usually 6 months. Particularly interesting applicants, who cannot be considered at present, are asked to give their consent to longer-term storage (usually one year). The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) a GDPR. If data has been processed that is relevant for accounting purposes, such as the reimbursement of travel expenses, the data required for this purpose will be deleted in compliance with the statutory retention periods, which are usually 6 or 10 years.

If the application was successful and we can welcome you to our company on the basis of a contractual agreement, we will transfer the data collected during the application process to our personnel file.

After you have been removed from the newsletter distribution list, your email address may be saved in a blacklist to prevent future mailings. The data from the blacklist will only be used for this purpose and will not be merged with other data. This serves both your interest and our interest in compliance with legal requirements when sending out newsletters (legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) f GDPR). The inclusion in the blacklist is not limited by time. You can object to the inclusion if your interests outweigh our legitimate interests.

We would like to point out that we evaluate your user behavior when sending the newsletter. For this evaluation, the emails sent contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which are one-pixel image files stored on our website. To perform the analysis, we link the data mentioned in § 3 and the web beacons with your email address and an individual ID. With the data obtained in this way, we create a user profile to tailor the newsletter to your individual interests. We record when you read our newsletters, which links you click on and deduce your personal interests. We link this data to the actions you take on our website.

The credit rating information may include probability values (score values), which are calculated on the basis of scientifically recognized mathematical-statistical procedures. In doing so, a large number of characteristics, such as income, address data, occupation, marital status and previous payment history, are used to draw conclusions about the customer's future risk of non-payment. The result is expressed in the form of a payment value (so-called score). The information obtained in this way forms the basis for our decision on the establishment, execution or termination of a contractual relationship. However, the choice of one of the offered payment methods is not dependent on such information.

The options for objection and deletion are based on the general regulations on the right of objection and deletion under data protection law described in this privacy policy.

§ 6 Use of social media

(1) Social media pages

We currently use the following social media links: Facebook, Xing, Linkedin, YouTube, Instagram and Twitter. We use the so-called two-click concept. This means that when you visit our site, no personal data is initially passed on to the above-mentioned social media provider. You can recognize the provider of the link by the mark on the box by its initial letter or logo. We allow you to communicate directly with the provider of the plugin via the button. The provider will receive the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online offer only if you click on the marked box and thereby activate it. In addition, the data mentioned under § 3 of this declaration will be transmitted.

If you click on the activated button and, for example, link the page, the provider will also store this information in your user account and publicly share it with your contacts.

(3) Integration of YouTube videos

We are interested in providing you with a wide range of multimedia information. Therefore we integrate videos from YouTube. This is a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, a company incorporated and operated under Irish law (registration number: 368047) with registered office at Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter referred to as “Google”).

The integration is in the extended data protection mode or the no-cookie solution, i.e. cookies and pixel tags are set by YouTube to personalize advertising and search results only after the video is played. However, the extended data protection mode does not necessarily exclude the transfer of data to YouTube partners. In this way, YouTube establishes a connection to the Google DoubleClick network - regardless of whether you are watching a video.

When the YouTube video is played, data is transferred to Google as the YouTube operator. This includes, for example, IP address, the specific address of the page loaded on our site, the transferred browser identification and the system date and time of loading. In addition, already existing cookies, which allow your browser to be clearly identified, are transmitted. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

It is possible that after the start of a YouTube video, further data processing operations may be triggered over which we have no influence. Google as the operator of YouTube is solely responsible for this data processing.

Purpose of data processing | Legal basis | More information

YouTube is used in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers. This therefore represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) f GDPR.

This website uses the online marketing tool, Campaign Manager. This is a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, a company incorporated and operated under Irish law (registration number: 368047) with its registered office at Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”).

If you consent, Campaign Manager uses cookies to serve ads relevant to users, to improve campaign performance reports, or to prevent a user from seeing the same ads more than once. Google uses a cookie ID to help identify which ads are shown in which browser and to prevent them from being shown more than once.

In addition, the Campaign Manager can use cookie IDs to track ad requests. This is, for example, when a user sees a Campaign Manager ad and later uses the same browser to visit the advertiser's website and make a purchase. According to Google, Campaign Manager cookies do not contain any personal information.

Because of the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our current knowledge. Because we have integrated Campaign Manager, Google receives the information that you have loaded the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider can know this and save your IP address.

In addition, the Campaign Manager (DoubleClick Floodlight) cookies enable us to understand whether you perform certain actions on our website after you have accessed or clicked on one of our (video) ads on Google or another platform via Campaign Manager (conversion tracking). Campaign Manager uses this cookie to understand the content on our sites, which you have interacted with so that we can send you targeted advertisements later.

Purpose of data processing | Legal basis | More information

We use the features of Campaign Manager to deliver ads that are relevant to visitors, to improve campaign performance reports or to prevent a user from receiving the same ads multiple times.

The legal basis for the data processing associated with this is Art. 6 (1) a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time by using our Cookie Consent Tool.

You can opt-out of this tracking by disabling cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain “www.googleadservices.com” (https://www.google.com/settings/ads), but this setting will be removed when you clear your cookies. Another option is to disable cookies permanently in your Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome browsers by clicking on the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We would like to point out that you may not be able to use all functions of this offer to their full extent if you do this.
