1. Basic Information on Data Processing and Legal Basis

1.1. This data protection declaration informs you about the type, scope and purpose of the processing of personal data within our websites, functions and contents (hereinafter jointly referred to as “website”). This privacy policy applies regardless of the domains, systems, platforms and devices (e.g. desktop or mobile) on which the online offer is run.

1.2. For the terms used, such as “personal data” or their “processing”, we refer to the definitions in Art. 4 of the German “Datenschutzgrundverordnung” (DSGVO) which is compliant to the EU GDPR.

1.3. The personal data of users processed within the scope of the online offer includes usage data (browser type and version, operating system used, URL of the previously visited page, IP address of the accessing computer and time of the request) and information on content (e.g. entries in the application form).

1.4. The term “user” covers all categories of data subjects. These include our business partners, customers, interested parties and other visitors to our online offering. The terms used, such as “user”, are to be understood as gender-neutral.

1.5. We process personal user data only in compliance with the relevant data protection regulations. The user’s data will only be processed if there is legal permission, if data processing is required by law or if the user has given his or her consent. We process personal data on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in analysis, optimisation and economic operation and security of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 letter f). DSGVO, in particular for range measurement, creation of profiles for advertising and marketing purposes and collection of access data and use of third-party services).

1.6. We point out that the legal basis is based either on consents for the processing for the fulfilment of our services and the execution of contractual measures, for the processing for the fulfilment of our legal obligations or for the processing for the protection of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a. and Art. 7 DSGVO).

1.7. What sources and data do we use? We process personal data of customers, suppliers, interested parties, applicants and employees. We process this data in the context of business relationships, application procedures or employment relationships. We also use data from publicly accessible sources that may be processed. The legal basis is the fulfilment of (pre-) contractual obligations, legitimate interest, legal regulation or an available consent of the person concerned.

2. Security Measures

2.1. We take organisational, contractual and technical security measures in accordance with state of the art technology in order to ensure that the provisions of data protection laws are observed and thus to protect the data processed by us against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against access by unauthorised persons.

2.2. The security measures include in particular the encrypted transmission of data between your browser and our server.

3. Passing on of Data to Third Parties and Third Party Providers

3.1. Data will only be passed on to third parties within the framework of legal requirements. We only pass on user data to third parties if this is necessary, e.g. on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO for contractual purposes or on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO on the economic and effective operation of our business operations.

3.2. If we use subcontractors to provide our services, we will take appropriate legal precautions as well as appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure the protection of personal data in accordance with the relevant statutory provisions.

3.3. If content, tools or other means from other providers (hereinafter jointly referred to as “third party providers”) are used in the context of this privacy policy, these will only be transferred to countries with an appropriate level of data protection and to countries within the scope of the DSGVO.

4. Online Application

If we receive applicant data proactively by post or e-mail, technical and organisational measures ensure that your personal data will be treated confidentially within the legal requirements. After completion of the application process, your data will be deleted unless you agree to its being stored for a longer period of time. Deletion takes place after four months (due to compliance with deadlines for possible lawsuits under the AGG).
