Legal bases for data processing
To enable our Internet site and the services associated with it to be offered to you, we process personal data based on the following legal bases:
Consent (Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Subparagraph a) of the GDPR)
For the fulfilment of contracts (Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Subparagraph b) of the GDPR)
Based on a weighing of interests (Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Subparagraph f) of the GDPR)
For the fulfilment of a legal obligation (Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Subparagraph c) of the GDPR)
In conjunction with the respective processing we shall make reference to the corresponding terminology so that you can understand the basis on which we process personal data. When personal data are processed on the basis of your consent, you have the right to revoke this from us at any time, effective from then on.
If you send us a message via email, we shall process the data only for potential contract preparation, or for later order fulfilment pursuant to Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 Subparagraph b) of the GDPR, or based on a weighing of interests according to Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Subparagraph f) of the GDPR.
When we process data based on a weighing of interests, as data subject you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data taking into consideration the specifications of Art. 21 of the GDPR.
The legal basis for processing your personal data in application processes is primarily § 26 of the GDPR in the version valid as of 25 May 2018. According to this, it is permitted to process the data required in conjunction with the decision about the establishment of an employment relationship.
Should the data be required after completion of the application process, where appropriate, for prosecution, data processing may occur based on the prerequisites of Art. 6 of the GDPR, particularly for safeguarding of legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Subparagraph f) of the GDPR. Our interest then consists in prosecution.
Which data are processed?
When you visit our Internet sites, personal data are processed so that the contents of the Internet site can be displayed on your end device. To enable your browser to display the pages, the IP address of the end device you are using must be processed. This is accompanied by additional information about the browser of your end device. We are obligated by data protection law also to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of the personal data processed with our IT systems. For this purpose and in this interest, the following data are logged based on a weighing of interests:
IP address of the retrieving computer (but in anonymised form through truncation of the octet)
Operating system of the retrieving computer
Browser version of the retrieving computer
Name of the retrieved file
Date and time of the retrieval
Transmitted volume of data
The truncated IP address is stored in a log, which is deleted after 7 days at the latest. From the outset we are no longer able to establish a connection to you. The data are further used also to enable errors on the Internet sites to be determined and remedied.
The information about your use of this website generated by the cookie is usually transmitted to a server of Google in the United States and stored there. Since we have enabled IP anonymisation on this website and concluded a corresponding order processing contract with Google, your IP address will first be truncated by Google in member states of the European Union or in other states which have signed the agreement governing the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a server of Google in the United States and be truncated there.
Google is certified in accordance with what is called "Privacy Shield" (list entry). Google guarantees a reasonable level of data protection.
You can prevent Google from acquiring and processing these data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB).
Alternatively—particularly when using a mobile device—you can prevent Google Analytics from acquiring data by clicking the following link.

Our Internet site has a contact form through which you can send us an electronic message. To enable us to process the message, we need an email address and your concern. We acquire these—as well as the message text—through the contact form.

Your email address
An IP address
Furthermore, it may happen that you reveal additional data about yourself, such as your name or an address. Regarding this, we would like to inform you that these data are processed not only by us, but on the way to us have already been sent to a mail server, which we have commissioned a company to operate in the course of order processing pursuant to Art. 28 of the GDPR. Proper fulfilment of contract is ensured by a separate order processing contract. For the duration of the storage of your data in this case, it must be noted that, in accordance with statutory retention obligations, your data will be archived for 10 years upon the formation of a contract. The same applies if a reference to a customer order is involved. If your email does not concern a contractual relationship, the data will be automatically deleted after one month.
Purposes of processing personal data
We process the aforementioned data for the operation of our Internet site and for the fulfilment of contractual obligations towards our customer and/or for safeguarding our legitimate interests.<br/> If you make enquiries outside of an active customer relationship, we will process the data for the purposes of sales and advertising. You can object to the use of your personal data for advertising purposes at any time.

Social network plugins (social plugins)
Plugins for the following social networks are embedded in our website: Facebook, Twitter, XING and LinkedIn.
The legal basis for the use of social plugins is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 Subparagraph f) of the GDPR. Our justified interest and purpose of using social network plugins is for information about our products and services to reach a broad audience. The social networks are responsible for handling the data of their users in a manner that is compliant with data protection regulations.
Facebook Social Plugins
Our online offering uses Social Plugins ("plugins") of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook"). These plugins are recognisable from the Facebook logo (white "f" on a blue background) or are marked with the words "Facebook Social Plugin". A list of Facebook Social Plugins and their appearance can be found here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=en_US
When a user calls up a function of this online offering that contains such a plugin, his device will be directly connected to the Facebook servers. The content of this plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to the user's device, where it is embedded in the online offering. Usage profiles can then be created for the user from the data processed. We have no influence on the scope of data that Facebook collects using this plugin and inform users according to the knowledge at our disposal.
Embedding these plugins allows Facebook to obtain information that a user has called up the corresponding page of the online offering. If the user is logged on to Facebook, Facebook will be able to assign the visit to the user's Facebook account. If a user interacts with the plugins, for example by pressing the "Like" button or entering a remark, the corresponding information will be transmitted directly from his device to Facebook, where it will be stored. If a user is not a Facebook member, it is still possible for Facebook to find out his IP address and store it. According to Facebook, IP addresses in Germany are only stored in an anonymised form.
Users who are Facebook members and do not want Facebook to collect data about them through this online offering and link this to their membership data stored at Facebook must log off from their Facebook account and delete their cookies before using our online offering. Other settings and objections to the use of data for advertising purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads or via the US-American site http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU site http://www.youronlinechoices.com/
These settings are not dependent on the platform used. In other words they are accepted for all devices such as desktop computers or mobile devices.
