3 Cookies


We use cookies on our websites. Cookies are small text files that can be stored and read on your device. A distinction is made between session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and permanent cookies, which are stored beyond the individual session. Cookies may contain data that make it possible to recognize the used devices. In some cases, however, cookies only contain information on certain settings that cannot be related to individuals.

We use session cookies and permanent cookies on our websites. The processing is carried out based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR and in the interest of optimising or enabling user guidance and adapting the presentation of our website.

You can adapt your browser settings in a way that it informs you about the placement of cookies. This makes the usage of cookies transparent for you. You can also delete cookies at any time via the corresponding browser setting and prevent the setting of new cookies. Please note that our web pages may not be displayed optimally and that some functions may no longer be technically available.

4 Google Analytics

We create pseudonymous user profiles with the help of Google Analytics for the demand-oriented design of our website. Google Analytics uses cookies that can be stored on your device and read by us. In this way we are able to recognize and count returning visitors. Data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR and § 15 para. 3 TMG and in the interest of finding out how often our websites have been accessed by different users.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the US and stored there. However, because we have activated IP anonymisation on this website, your IP address will be previously shortened by Google within Member States of the European Union. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the US (an appropriate level of data protection is available according to Art. 45 para. 1 GDPR through Google’s participation in the Privacy Shield) and only shortened there.We have also concluded a contract with Google Inc. (USA) for order processing in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. Google may therefore only use all information strictly for the purpose of evaluating the use of our website for us and compiling reports on website activities.

You can object to the processing at any time. Please use one of the following options:

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

 5 Social Media Plugins

For data protection reasons, we do not integrate social plug-ins directly into our website. When you visit our pages, no data is therefore transmitted to social media services such as Facebook, Twitter, XING or Google+. Profiling by third parties is thus excluded.

6 Online applications

We process your personal data in accordance with the applicable data protection regulations on the basis of § 26 GDPR. We process the data that you give us in the context of your online application exclusively for the purpose of applicant selection. Data will not be processed for other purposes.

Online applications are transmitted electronically to our personnel department where they are processed as quickly as possible. Transmission is encrypted. As a rule, applications are forwarded to the heads of the relevant specialist departments in our company. Beyond that, your data will not be passed on. Your information will be treated confidentially in our company. If your application is unsuccessful, your documents will be deleted after 6 months.

7 Contact form

You have the possibility to contact us via a web form. To use our contact form we need your title, your name and your e-mail address. You can provide further information, but you do not have to. Your request is encrypted and sent to our server via https. The legal basis for processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR in the case of customer requests, otherwise Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. The data processing only takes place for the execution of the contract, the execution of pre-contractual measures or for answering your inquiry as a legitimate interest. The data is then deleted. The data will not be passed on to third parties.

8 Explanation of safety measures

Data integrity

In order to protect your data from unwanted access as comprehensively as possible, we take technical and organizational measures. We use encryption methods on our pages. Your information is transmitted from your computer to our server and vice versa via the Internet using TLS encryption. You can recognize this by the fact that the lock symbol in the status bar of your browser is closed and the address line starts with https://

 9 Rights of the user

Your rights as a user

When processing your personal data, the GDPR grants you as a website user certain rights:

Right to information (Art. 15 GDPR):

You have the right to request confirmation as to whether personal data concerning you are processed; if this is the case, you have a right of access to this personal data and to the information specified in Article 15 of the GDPR.

Right to correction and deletion (Articles 16 and 17 GDPR):

You have the right to immediately request the correction of incorrect personal data concerning you and, if necessary, the completion of incomplete personal data.

You also have the right to request the immediate deletion of your personal data if one of the reasons specified in Art. 17 GDPR applies, e.g. if the data are no longer required for the purposes pursued.

Right to limitation of processing (Art. 18 GDPR):

You have the right to request a restriction on processing if one of the conditions set out in Article 18 GDPR is met, e.g. if you have lodged an objection to processing, for the duration of any examination.

In certain cases, which are detailed in Article 20 GDPR, you have the right to receive the personal data concerning you in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request the transmission of this data to a third party.

If data are collected on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) (data processing to protect legitimate interests), you have the right to object to the processing at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation.

Right of appeal to a supervisory authority

According to Art. 77 GDPR, you have the right of appeal to a supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of data concerning you violates data protection regulations.
