Email Contact

If you contact us via the e-mail addresses provided by us, we will store the personal data that you have provided to us in order to answer your enquiries. Your data can be stored in a Customer Relationship Management system (“CRM system”) or a comparable software.

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, whereby our legitimate interest arises from the above-mentioned purposes. If contact is established with the aim of concluding a contract or within the framework of an existing contractual relationship, the legal basis is provided by Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR.

The data will be deleted when the inquiry has been processed definitively, when we do not have a legal obligation to store them or need them to fulfil the contract. In addition, you can object to processing at any time if the processing is carried out on the basis of a legitimate interest.

Job Applicant Data

If you send us your job application, we will process the data submitted to us in order to fulfil our (pre)contractual obligations within the application procedure. If your application is successful, we will process the data for the purpose of carrying out the employment relationship.

The legal grounds are provided by Art. 6 Para. 1 (b) GDPR and Section 26 BDSG (Federal Data Protection Act). If you voluntarily provide us with special categories of personal data, such as health data or religious affiliation, additional legal bases are provided by Art. 9 Para. 2 (b) GDPR.

If your application is not successful, we will delete your data after six months at most. The data will be stored until then in order to answer any questions regarding the application procedure and to fulfil our obligations under the AGG (General Act on Equal Treatment). If you withdraw your application, we will delete your data immediately.

Privacy Policy – Website

It is usually possible to use our website without providing any personal data. However, data such as the pages or the names of the files accessed, date and time are stored on the server for statistical purposes. These data are not directly linked to you. This will be explained in greater detail further below. Insofar as personal data (for example name, address or email addresses) is collected directly on our pages, this always occurs on a voluntary basis and only with the purpose of sending you desired information. These data will not be passed on to third parties or stored permanently without your express consent. However, we would like to point out that normal data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by email) may be exposed to security threats. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is therefore only possible if the data is encrypted or transmitted with the protection of a secure password. Access to our website is always encrypted.

Technical Data

If you visit our website for information purposes only, that is, if you do not register or otherwise provide information to us, we only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to us. These are:

  • IP address
  • Date and time of request
  • Content of the request (specific page)
  • Access Status/HTTP Status Code
  • Website where the request originated (known as a “referer”)
  • Operating system and its interface
  • Language and version of the browser software.

We also store these data, including the IP address, in log files.

This information is necessary for us from a technical standpoint to be able to display our website, to ensure stability and security and to optimize our offer. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, whereby our legitimate interest arises from the above-mentioned purposes.

We delete these data after seven days at the latest. Any further storage will only take place after the personal data has been deleted or anonymised. IP addresses can be anonymised by shortening them adequately.

Our website is hosted by 1&1 Internet SE, Elgendorfer Str. 57, 56410 Montabaur, Germany.

Information about our web host’s data protection can be found under: https://hosting.1und1.de/terms-gtc/terms-privacy

Contact Form

If you use our contact form, we will use the data that you provide to us to answer your request, whereby only a valid e-mail address is required and the other details are voluntary. Your data can be stored in a Customer Relationship Management system (“CRM system”) or a comparable software.

Data processing for the purpose of contacting us is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 (b) GDPR, insofar as your request concerns the fulfilment of contractual obligations or the initiation of a contract. In other cases, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, whereby our legitimate interest arises from the above-mentioned purposes.

The personal data collected by us for the use of the contact form will be automatically deleted after your enquiry has been dealt with, unless we are legally obliged to store it or we require the data for performance of the contract. In addition, you can object to processing at any time if the processing is carried out on the basis of a legitimate interest.

Google Web Fonts

This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google to display fonts uniformly. When you access a page, your browser loads the required Web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly. For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to Google’s servers. This gives Google knowledge that our website has been accessed via your IP address. Use of Google Web Fonts is intended to provide a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR. If your browser does not support web fonts, your computer uses a default font.

You can find further information about Google Web Fonts at https://developers.google.com

Google Maps

Our website uses Google Maps services. This allows us to display interactive maps directly on our website and enables you to use the map function conveniently.

By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you have accessed the subpage in question on our website. In addition, the data that were collected when accessing our website are transmitted. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account that you are logged in to or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your information will be directly associated with your account. If you do not wish for this information to be associated to your profile on Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. This kind of assessment takes place in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide demand-oriented advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right.

For more information about the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider, please refer to the provider’s privacy policy. Here, you will also find further information about your rights in this regard and settings to protect your privacy: https://policies.google.com/privacy. Google also processes your personal data in the USA and has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

The legal basis for the use of Google Maps is Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, whereby our legitimate interest arises from the above-mentioned marketing purposes.
