General information

The protection of your personal data is of particular concern to us. Therefore, we would like to inform you about our data protection principles and procedures regarding the use of your personal data in the context of your application through our recruiting system (System).

We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the legal data protection regulations and this Data Protection Declaration.

The following provides a simple overview of how we handle your personal data. Personal data is all data with which you can be personally identified.

You will also find detailed information on data protection in this Data Protection Declaration.

Data protection

When you use our system, various personal data is collected. Personal data is data with which you can be personally identified. This Data Protection Declaration explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how this is done and for what purpose.

Data security

We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Data processing in this system

Your data is collected when you provide it to us. This can be data that you enter into a contact form, for example.

Other data is automatically collected by our IT systems. This is mainly technical data (e.g. Internet browser, operating system or time of the retrieval). This data is automatically collected as soon as you enter our system.

Part of the data is collected to ensure that the system is provided to you without errors. Other data can be used to analyse your user behaviour.

You have the right to receive information free of charge about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data at any time. You also have the right to demand the correction, blocking or deletion of this data. You can contact us at any time at the address provided in the company information section if have any questions concerning the subject of data protection. Furthermore, you have the right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority.

You also have the right, under certain circumstances, to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted. For details, please refer to the section “Right to Limit Processing” in this Data Protection Declaration.

Analysis tools and third-party tools

When you visit our system, your usage behaviour can be statistically evaluated. This happens mainly through the use of cookies and so-called analysis programs. The analysis of your usage behaviour is usually anonymous; the usage behaviour cannot be traced back to you.

You can object to this analysis or prevent it by not using certain tools. You will find detailed information on this in the following Data Protection Declaration.

SSL or TLS encryption

This system uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as the operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Objection to advertising e-mails

The use of contact data published within the scope of the obligation to publish contact details for the transmission of advertising and information material that was not expressly requested is hereby objected to. The operators expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, for example through spam e-mails.

3 Cookies

Our system uses so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your end device. 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 end device until you delete them yourself or until an automatic solution is provided by your web browser.

In some cases, cookies from third-party companies may also be stored on your end device when you enter our system (third-party cookies). These enable us or you to use certain services of the third party company (e.g. cookies for processing payment services).

Cookies have various functions. Numerous cookies are technically necessary, as certain website functions would not be possible without them (e.g. the shopping basket function or the display of videos). Other cookies are used to evaluate user behaviour or display advertising.

Cookies, which are required for the electronic communication process or for the provision of certain functions that you have requested (e.g. shopping basket function), are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of his services.
