Internet pages in part use so called cookies. Cookies do not cause any harm to your computer and do not contain any viruses. We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files which are placed on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “Session-Cookies”. They will be deleted automatically after your visit. Other cookies remain saved on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser at your next visit.

You can set your browser to inform you whenever a cookie is placed and only allow the reception on a case-by-case basis, only for certain cases or generally prohibit cookies. You can also set your browser to automatically delete cookies when quitting your browser. If you deactivate the use of cookies in general, the functionality of this website may be restricted.

Cookies, which are necessary for the execution of electronic communication processes or for the provision of certain desired functions (e.g. shopping cart function) are saved on the basis of art. 6 paragraph 1 of the GDPR. The operator of the website has a legitimate interest in saving cookies to provide a technically flawless and optimised service. As far as other cookies are saved (e.g. cookies to analyse surfing behaviour) they are mentioned separately in the privacy policy.

Contact forms

If you use our contact forms to send an enquiry, the enquiry and the contact data you supplied in that enquiry will be saved to process your enquiry and for any follow-up questions. We will not share this data with third parties without your consent.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form happens solely on the basis of your consent (art. 6 paragraph 1 GDPR). You can revoke this agreement at any time. An informal email is sufficient to do so. The legality of the data already processed before the withdrawal is not touched by the withdrawal.

The data entered in the contact form will remain in our systems until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent of saving it or until the purpose of saving the data is rendered obsolete (e.g. after your enquiry is completed). Mandatory legal provisions – especially retention periods – remain unaffected.

Applicant data

We collect and process personal data of applicants with the purpose of executing the application process. The processing can happen electronically.

This is especially the case, if an applicant has provided his/her application documents electronically, e.g. via email or via a contact form on the website.

If the application results in an employment contract, all transmitted data is saved in compliance with the legal provisions to process the employment relationship.

If the application does not result in an employment contract, the application documents will be deleted six months after the staffing process is finished, as long as no other legitimate interest of the person responsible for processing exist. An example for such a legitimate interest is the burden of proof in a lawsuit according to the General Equal Treatment Act (GETA). With the approval of the applicant the data may be saved for a longer period.
