We are providing this data privacy policy to comply with our legal obligation to inform you about the storage of data, the type of data stored, its purpose and the identity of our company.

Which data is being protected
Data protection concerns personal data, which is any information about the personal or material circumstances of an identified or identifiable individual. This may include, but is not limited to, the name, postal address, e-mail address, or usage data such as a computer’s IP address.

Automatic, anonymous collection, processing and use of data
We would like to point out that Internet-based data transmission is subject to security vulnerabilities. Full and complete protection against third-party access is therefore impossible.

Server data:
For technical reasons, data collection includes, but may not be limited to, the following data which your Internet browser transmits to us or to our web space provider (so-called server log files): 

-  Browser type and version
-  Operating system used
-  Website from which you access our website (Referrer URL)
-  Website that you access
-  Date and time of your access
-  Your Internet protocol (IP) address

This data is stored separately from any personal data you may have provided and therefore cannot be traced back to any particular person. It is analysed for statistical purposes in order to optimise our website and our offers.

Contact option
On our website, you can contact us by e-mail and/or via a contact form. The information provided by the user by e-mail or via the contact form will be stored for the purpose of processing this contact. This data will not be disclosed to third parties, nor will it be aligned with data that may be collected by other components of our website.

Use of Google Maps
On our website, we use the Google Maps component provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA (hereinafter called “Google”).

Each time you access the Google Maps component, Google sets a cookie to process user settings and data when the page that includes the Google Maps component is displayed. This cookie is usually not deleted by closing the browser. Instead, it expires after a certain period of time, unless it is manually deleted by you beforehand.

Should you disagree with the processing of your data, you may disable the Google Maps service and thus prevent data from being transmitted to Google. To do so, you need to disable the Java Script feature in your browser. However, please note that disabling Java Script will limit or eliminate your ability to use Google Maps.

Using Google Maps and the information obtained via Google Maps is subject to the Google Terms of Use https: //www.google.de/intl/en/policies/terms/regional.html and the additional Terms and Conditions for Google Maps. https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/help/terms_maps.html

Use of Google Analytics
On our website, we use the Google Analytics component provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA (hereinafter called “Google”).

Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files stored on your computer and allow it to analyse your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the United States. However, if IP anonymisation has been enabled on this website, your IP address will be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union (EU) or other states in the European Economic Area (EEA). Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. 

Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website for the purpose of analysing your use of the website, compiling reports on website activities and providing further services related to website and Internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics will not be combined with any other data held by Google. 

You can prevent cookies from being stored by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser software. However, we would like to point out that if you do so, you may not be able to use the full scope of all of this website's features. 

You can also prevent the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being transmitted to and processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link. The current link is: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

Publishing job offers / online job applications
Your job application data will be electronically collected and processed by us for the purpose of carrying out the application process. If your application results in the signing of an employment contract, your transmitted data will be stored by us in your personnel file in compliance with the relevant legal regulations for the usual organisational and administrative purposes.

If your application is rejected, the data you have submitted will automatically be deleted two months after notification of rejection. This does not apply if, due to legal requirements (for example to satisfy the burden of proof pursuant to the General Equal Treatment Act), longer storage is necessary or if you have expressly consented to longer storage in our prospect database.

Right to obtain information
Our customers are at all times entitled to request the following information:
-  Which personal data concerning them is being stored
-  The origin of such data
-  The recipients or categories of recipients to whom the data is transmitted, and for which purpose it is stored

Erasure and blocking
We erase personal data processed for our own purposes as soon as we no longer need to know them to fulfil the purpose for which it is stored.

You have the right at any time to have this data corrected and, if necessary, deleted, unless this conflicts with statutory standards.

Technical and organisational measures
We undertake to take the technical and organisational measures required to ensure the implementation of the data protection regulations, provided that the effort involved is proportionate to the intended protection purpose. When communicating by e-mail, we cannot guarantee complete data security. We therefore recommend that you contact us by post or telephone for transmitting confidential information.
