You can use our website without providing personal data. However, for some services individual provisions may apply, which are treated separately in the following. We will treat your personal data (e.g. name, address, e-mail address, telephone number etc.). Personal data is any data that can be clearly attributed to a natural person. The following provisions provide information on the type, amount and purpose of collecting personal data as well as how this data is used and processed by the provider:
We expressly state that internet-based data transmission has security holes so that complete protection from access by third parties cannot be guaranteed.
We use so-called cookies on our website to recognise multiple use of our offer by the same user/internet connection owner. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser stores on your computer. They serve to optimise our internet presence and our offers. These are mostly so-called “session cookies”, which are deleted again after the end of your visit.
In some cases, however, these cookies provide information to automatically recognise you. This recognition is based on the IP address stored in the cookies. The information obtained in this way is used to optimise our offers and to enable you to make better use of our site.
With regard to the function, a distinction must be made between technically necessary and non-necessary cookies. On our site, we only use technically necessary cookies.
Technically necessary cookies
By this we mean all cookies that are necessary for the operation of our website and its functions. These are usually set in response to an action you have taken. These include registration, login or settings such as language or cookie preferences. It is possible to deactivate these cookies in the browser. In this case, error-free functioning of our website can no longer be guaranteed.
For technical reasons, we record the following data (called server log files), which your internet browser transmits to us and/or our webspace provider (the list is not exhaustive):
- browser type and version
- your operating system
- the website from which you visit our website (referrer URL)
- the website which you visit
- date and time of your visit
- your IP (Internet Protocol) address.
This anonymous data is stored separately from any provided personal data so that no conclusion to an individual is possible. The data is used for statistical purposes and to enhance our website and offers.
You can contact us via e-mail or via a form on our website. In such cases, the data entered by the user are stored for the purpose of processing their inquiry. We will not pass on this data to third parties. We will also not compare this data to any data collected by other components on our website.
Use of Friendly Captcha
We use captcha technology to prevent spam and protect our website from being overloaded by automated data entry (bots). This technology uses advanced risk analysis techniques to evaluate whether a human visitor is using our website and to distinguish humans from bots. If necessary, an interactive task is displayed on form pages to validate the input. The legal basis for the use is Article 6 (1) f (lawfulness of processing), because there is a legitimate interest of our company to protect our website from bots and spam.
Publishing vacancies/online application
We collect and process your application data electronically in order to treat your application. In case your application is followed by an employment, we may store your data in your personnel file, following our usual administration process and in compliance with legal requirements.
Data processing in the course of a business relation
We will store and, at least for the duration of our business relation, process your contact information as well as information on our communication with you as soon as you enter into a business relation with us, e.g. as an interested party, supplier or partner. In cases where legal requirements require longer storage of this data, we will comply with these legal requirements and delete your data as soon as the required deadlines expire.
Your data will be deleted by us as soon as storage is no longer necessary or – in the case of data processing based on your consent – you object to the processing/storage. Deletion will not take place if legal retention periods prevent deletion.
You can contact us free of charge in case of questions regarding the collection, processing or use of your personal data and its authorization, blocking, deletion or for a revocation of an already effected consent. We want to draw your attention to the fact that you are entitled to having wrong personal data corrected or deleted to the extent that there is no legal obligation to retention.
