The data mentioned is processed by us for the following purposes:
The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR (GDPR = General Data Protection Regulation). Our legitimate interest follows from the data collection purposes listed above. In no case do we use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person.

For questions of any kind, we offer you the opportunity to contact us via the contact form (under "Contact") on our website.

3. Disclosure of data
A transfer of your personal data to third parties for purposes other than those listed below does not take place.
We only share your personal data with third parties if:
4. Cookies / Cookie-Bar (Cookie Settings
The cookie stores information resulting in connection with the specific terminal used. However, this does not mean that we are immediately aware of your identity.
In addition, to improve usability, we also use temporary cookies that are stored on your device for a specified period of time. If you visit our site again to use our services, it will automatically recognise that you have already been with us and what inputs and settings you have made, so you do not have to re-enter them.
The data processed by cookies is required for the purposes mentioned in order to safeguard our legitimate interests as well as third party interests pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
Most browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or a notice always appears before a new cookie is stored. However, the complete deactivation of cookies can mean that you cannot use all the features of our website.
Cookie-Bar (cookie settings)
pop-up. The "Cookie Settings" button next to it will take you to a cookie bar. This cookie bar lists the analysis tools we use (Google Analytics). In the preferences, the cookie bar, that is Google Analytics, is enabled (blue background). To deactivate (grey background) you have to move the slider to the left. The same can be achieved by moving the “Activate / deactivate all sliders"
5. Integration of services/ content of third parties
Within our website, we use third party services / content to integrate their content and services, such as maps (collectively referred to as "content" or "services").
The prerequisite for this is that providers of this content perceive the IP address of the users, since without the IP address, the content could not be sent to their browser. This requires the IP address to display such content. We endeavour to use only content whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the content. Third-party vendors could also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics) for statistical or marketing purposes, which could be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. Pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user's device, including, but not limited to, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring web pages, visit time, and other information about using our online offering, as well as such information from other sources.
The legal basis for the processing of the data transmitted in the course of using these services / contents is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, i.e. our legitimate interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offer.
On our website (under "Contact") we have integrated maps of the service "Google Maps" of the provider Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. This allows us to show you interactive maps directly in the website and allows you to conveniently use the map feature.
This is done regardless of whether Google provides a user account that you are logged in to, or if there is no user account. When you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not wish the data to be associated with your profile on Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses this for purposes of advertising, market research and / or tailoring its website. Such use is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide appropriate advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right to object to the formation of these user profiles. To do so, you must contact Google.
You can make appropriate changes to modify these services / content via the following link (opt-out): https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated
6. Analysis tools
The tracking measures listed below and used by us are based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. With the tracking measures, we want to ensure the needs-based design and continuous optimisation of our website. On the other hand, we use the tracking measures to statistically record the use of our website and evaluate it for the purpose of optimising our offer for you. These interests are to be regarded as justified within the meaning of the beforementioned provision. The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be found in the corresponding tracking tools.
For the purpose of the needs-based design and continuous optimisation of our website, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service from Google Inc. (https: //www.google.de/intl/de/about/) (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, hereafter "Google"). In this context, pseudonymised usage profiles are created and cookies (see point 4) are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website such as
are transferred to a Google server in the US and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage for the purpose of market research and customisation of these websites. This information may also be transferred to third parties if required by law or if third parties are commissioned with the processing of this data. In no case will your IP address be merged with other data provided by Google.
This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "anonymizeIp ()". As a result, IP addresses are processed in a shortened form so personal reference can thus be excluded. As far as the data collected about you has a personal reference, it is immediately excluded and the personal data deleted immediately.
In addition, you can prevent the installation of cookies by a corresponding setting of the browser software; however, we point out that in this case not all features of this website may be fully used. In addition, you may prevent the collection of the cookie-generated data related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on: (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).
For more information about privacy in connection with Google Analytics, see Google Analytics Help: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de

b) Application via e-mail
Alternatively, you can also submit your application data / documents on the "Jobs” page by pressing the button "email@example.com” via your e-mail account. When applying by e-mail, however, we ask you to note that e-mails are not sent in encrypted form and therefore you must provide the encryption yourself. Therefore, we cannot take any responsibility for the transmission of the application between you as the sender and its reception on our server.
If you do not wish such a transfer, you can use the postal delivery form as an alternative to the e-mail application. The address can be found on the "Jobs" website as well as the websites of the respective job offer.
