This right of appeal exists irrespective of any other administrative or judicial remedies.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract given to you or to a third party in a conventional, machine-readable format. If you request that the data is transferred directly to another responsible party, this will only take place if it is technically feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser’s address bar.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Disclosure of information, deletion and rectification

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to obtain information free of charge at any time about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to rectify or delete this data.

  • If the processing of your personal data was/is unlawful, you may request restriction of the data processing instead of deletion.
  • If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it in order to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.

3. Data collection on this website

Cookies

The website sometimes uses what are known as cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used to make our website more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files which are deposited on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted once your visit is over. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit.
You can set up your browser so that you are informed about the placement of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, rule out the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general and enable the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. If you disable cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.
Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions that you have requested (e.g. shopping basket function) are stored on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies in order to provide his services in a manner that is technically flawless and optimised. If appropriate consent has been requested (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), processing will be based exclusively on Article 6(1)(a) GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.
Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysing your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are dealt with separately in this Privacy Policy.

Server log files

The provider of the website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. This information involves:

Contact form

If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of any follow-up queries. We will not pass on this data without your consent.
This data is processed on the basis of Article 6(1)(b) GDPR, insofar as your enquiry is connected with the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in effectively handling the enquiries addressed to us (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR) or on your consent (Article 6(1)(a) GDPR), provided this has been requested.
The data entered by you on the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to its storage or the purpose for which it was stored ceases to apply (e.g. after your enquiry has been dealt with). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your enquiry including all personal details (name, enquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We will not pass on this data without your consent.

In all other cases, processing is based on your consent (Article 6(1)(a) GDPR) and/or on our legitimate interests (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR), since we have a legitimate interest in effectively handling the enquiries addressed to us.
The data sent to us by you via contact requests will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to its storage or the purpose for which it was stored ceases to apply (e.g. after your request has been dealt with).

Demographics in Google Analytics

This website uses the "demographics" function of Google Analytics. This allows us to generate reports which contain information about the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data is derived from interest-based advertising by Google as well as from visitor data from third parties. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can disable this feature at any time in the ad settings in your Google Account or generally prohibit Google Analytics from collecting your information as described in the "Objection to data collection" section.

Retention period

User-level and event-level data stored by Google that is associated with cookies, user identifiers (e.g. User ID) or advertising identifiers (e.g. DoubleClick cookies, Android’s Advertising ID) is anonymised or deleted after 14 months.

If appropriate consent has been requested (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), processing will be based exclusively on Article 6(1)(a) GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.

6. Custom services

Handling job applicant data

We offer you the opportunity to submit job applications to us (e.g. by e-mail, by post or via an online application form). Below, we provide information about the scope, purpose and use of the personal data collected from you during the application process. We can assure you that your data will be collected, processed and used in accordance with the applicable data privacy rights and all other statutory provisions and that your data will be treated as strictly confidential.

Scope and purpose of data collection

If you submit a job application to us, we will process any affiliated personal data (e.g. contact and communication details, application documents, notes taken during job interviews, etc.) if they are required to make a decision concerning the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is § 26 BDSG (new) according to German law (Negotiation of an Employment Relationship), Article 6(1)(b) GDPR (general contract negotiations) and – provided you have given your consent – Article 6(1)(a) GDPR. Consent may be revoked at any time. Within our company, your personal data will only be shared with individuals involved in the processing of your job application.
If your job application is successful, the data submitted by you will be stored in our data processing systems on the grounds of § 26 BDSG (new) and Article 6(1)(b) GDPR for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship.

Data retention period

If we are unable to make you a job offer, if you reject a job offer or withdraw your application, we reserve the right to retain the data you have submitted on the basis of our legitimate interests (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR) for up to 6 months from the end of the application procedure (rejection or withdrawal of the application). The data will subsequently be deleted and the physical application documents destroyed. The retention serves in particular as evidence in the event of a legal dispute. If it is evident that the data will be required after the 6-month period has expired (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), the data will not be deleted until the purpose for further retention no longer applies.
