2) Data Collection When You Visit Our Website
When using our website for information only, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect data that your browser transmits to our server (so-called “server log files”). When you visit our website, we collect the following data that is technically necessary for us to display the website to you:
- Our visited website
- Date and time at the moment of access
- Amount of data sent in bytes
- Source/reference from which you came to the page
- Browser used
- Operating system used
- IP address used (if applicable: in anonymized form)
Data processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) point f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website. The data will not be passed on or used in any other way. However, we reserve the right to check the server log files subsequently, if there are any concrete indications of illegal use.
In order to make your visit to our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies on various pages. These are small text files that are stored on your end device. Some of the cookies we use are deleted after the end of the browser session, i.e. after closing your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your terminal and enable us or our partner companies (third-party cookies) to recognize your browser on your next visit (persistent cookies). If cookies are set, they collect and process specific user information such as browser and location data as well as IP address values according to individual requirements. Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period, which may vary depending on the cookie.
In some cases, cookies are used to simplify the ordering process by saving settings (e.g. remembering the content of a virtual shopping basket for a later visit to the website). If personal data are also processed by individual cookies set by us, the processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) point b GDPR either for the execution of the contract or in accordance with Art. 6 (1) point f GDPR to safeguard our legitimate interests in the best possible functionality of the website and a customer-friendly and effective design of the page visit.
We work together with advertising partners who help us to make our website more interesting for you. For this purpose, cookies from partner companies are also stored on your hard drive when you visit our website (third-party cookies). You will be informed individually and separately about the use of such cookies and the scope of the information collected in each case within the following sections.
Please note that you can set your browser in such a way that you are informed about the setting of cookies and you can decide individually about their acceptance or exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally. Each browser differs in the way it manages the cookie settings. This is described in the help menu of each browser, which explains how you can change your cookie settings. You will find these for the respective browsers under the following links:

In the context of contacting us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail), personal data is collected. Which data is collected in the case of a contact form can be seen from the respective contact form. These data are stored and used exclusively for the purpose of responding to your request or for establishing contact and for the associated technical administration. The legal basis for processing data is our legitimate interest in responding to your request in accordance with Art. 6 (1) point f GDPR. If your contact is aimed at concluding a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) point b GDPR. Your data will be deleted after final processing of your enquiry; this is the case if it can be inferred from the circumstances that the facts in question have been finally clarified, provided that there are no legal storage obligations to the contrary.
5) Use of Your Data for Direct Advertising
Based on our legitimate interest in personalized direct mail, we reserve the right to store your first and last name, your postal address and – if we have received this additional information from you within the framework of the contractual relationship – your title, academic degree, year of birth and your professional, industry or business name in accordance with Art. 6 (1) point f GDPR and to use them for sending interesting offers and information on our products by letter post.

6) Tools and Miscellaneous
6.1 Google Maps
Our website uses Google Maps (AP’I) of Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Maps is a web service for displaying interactive (country) maps in order to display geographical information visually. Using this service will show you our location and will make it easier for you to find us.
When you access the sub-pages that contain the Google Maps map, information about your use of our website (such as your IP address) is transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. This is regardless of whether Google provides a user account that you are logged in with 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 to be associated with your profile on Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google saves your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and evaluates them. Such an evaluation takes place according to Art. 6 (1) point f GDPR on the basis of the legitimate interests of Google in the insertion of personalized advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles. If you want to do so, you must contact Google to exercise this right.

To do this, the browser you are using must have a connection to Google’s servers. In this way, Google will be informed that our website has been accessed via your IP address. Google Web Fonts are used for the purpose of a uniform and attractive presentation of our online offers and its use is in our legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) point f GDPR. If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font is used by your computer.

2. What happens to your application data?
We attach particular importance to the protection of your personal data and are obliged to comply with the legal requirements on data protection pursuant to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the German Data Protection Act (new Bundesdatenschutzgesetz – BDSG-neu 2018). We therefore process your applicant data on the basis of § 26 para. 1 BDSG-neu.
We have taken technical and organisational measures to protect your data against accidental or deliberate manipulation and unauthorised access. However, if you send us your application documents in advance via an unencrypted email transmission, we cannot guarantee that they will be transmitted securely, as this is not within our realm of responsibility. If you are unsure of whether your email provider ensures encryption, you can send us your application by post instead.
Below we would like to inform you about the use of your personal data when you apply for a job with our company.
Personal data is subject to restrictive access control, which ensures that only authorised persons can access your data. In general, your applicant data will be used only by the department in charge of processing applications (usually the human resources department and the head of the department offering the position). Your data will be used only for the application process. It will not be used by or passed on to third parties.
If we intend to make use of your applicant data for any other purpose (e.g. inclusion in a talent pool) we will obtain your separate consent in advance. Such consent is voluntary and revocable at any time without giving reasons.
3. How long will your data be stored?
We will delete your personal data as soon as it is no longer required for the defined purpose of processing the application. After the application procedure is completed and if you have not joined the company, the data will be deleted within a period of six months, in compliance with the data protection provisions – unless we have received your consent for a longer storage period. In the latter case, we will store your data for the period stated in the consent text. Unsolicited applications will be deleted directly if there is currently no position available.
4. Which data protection rights are you entitled to assert?
You can request information about the personal data stored about you at the above address. In addition, under certain circumstances you may request the correction or deletion of your data. You may also have the right to limit the processing of your data and the right to have the personal data concerning yourself handed over to you in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.
You also have the option of lodging a complaint with the above-named Data Protection Officer or with a data protection supervisory authority. The supervisory authority responsible for us is:
Landesbeauftragte für Datenschutz und Informationsfreiheit Nordrhein-Westfalen
Postfach 20 04 44, 40102 Düsseldorf
Tel: +49 211/38424-0
Fax. +49 211/38424-10
If we process your data to safeguard legitimate interests, you may object to this processing for reasons arising from your particular situation. We will then no longer process your personal data unless we can present compelling reasons that are worthy of protection and which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or if the processing is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If we process your data based on your consent, you have the right to revoke your consent for future processing at any time without giving reasons.
Please send your objection/revocation by email or post to the address of the data controller given above.
