Privacy Policy

We take data protection seriously

The protection of your privacy when we process your personal data is an important concern for us. When you visit our website, our web servers automatically store the IP of your Internet service provider, the website from which you visit us, the pages which you visit when you are on our website, as well as the date and duration of the visit. This information is essential for the technical transmission of the web pages and for secure server operation. No personalised evaluation of this data is carried out.

If you send us data via the contact form, this data is stored on our servers as part of the data back-up process. Your data will be used by us only to process your request. Your data will also be dealt with in the strictest of confidence. It will not be disclosed to third parties.

Personal data

Personal data is data about your person. This includes your name, address and email address. You do not have to disclose any personal data in order to be able to visit our Internet site. In some cases, we need your name and address as well as further information in order to be able to offer you the requested service.

The same applies if we supply you with information material on request or if we answer your enquiries. In these cases, we will always point this out to you. Furthermore, we store only the data that you have sent to us either automatically or voluntarily.

If you use one of our services, we generally only collect the data that is necessary for us to be able to provide you with our service. We may ask you for further information, although this is only on a voluntary basis. Whenever we process personal data, we do so in order to be able to provide you with our service or to pursue our commercial objectives.

Automatically stored data

Server log files

The website provider automatically collects and stores information in so-called "server log files", which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Date and time of the request
  • Name of the requested file
  • Page from which the file was requested
  • Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
  • Web browser and operating system used
  • Complete IP address of the requesting computer
  • Transferred data volume

This data is not combined with other data sources. Processing is carried out in accordance with applicable privacy regulations, including Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.

This data is temporarily stored by us for reasons of technical security, in particular in order to prevent attempts to attack our web server. It is not possible for us to draw conclusions about specific individuals on the basis of this data. After seven days at the latest, the data is made anonymous by shortening the IP address at the domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a reference to the individual user. The data is also processed in anonymous form for statistical purposes; it is not compared with other data stocks or passed on to third parties, even in the form of extracts. Only within the context of our server statistics, which we publish every two years in our activity report, is the number of page views made known.

Cookies

When you visit our Internet pages, we may store information on your computer in the form of cookies. Cookies are small files that are transferred from an Internet server to your browser and stored on its hard drive. Only the Internet protocol address is saved during this process – but no personal data. This information, which is stored in the cookies, enables us to recognise you automatically the next time you visit our website, thereby making it easier for you to use our website. The legal basis for the use of cookies is the legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

You can of course also visit our Internet pages without accepting cookies. If you do not want your computer to be recognised upon your next visit, you can also refuse the use of cookies by changing the settings in your browser to "Reject cookies". You can find out how to do this in the operating instructions of your browser. However, if you reject the use of cookies, there may be restrictions on the use of some areas of our Internet pages.

Google Tag Manager

This website uses Google Tag Manager. The Tag Manager does not collect any personal data.
The tool will trigger other tags that for their part might collect data. Google Tag Manager does
not access these data. If a deactivation took place on the domain or cookie level, this deactivation
will remain in force for all tracking tags that are implemented by Google Tag Manager. For the
Google data protection policy about this tool, please go to: https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/tag- manager/

Google Analytics with Anonymisation Function

On our website, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland, hereinafter "Google". Google-Analytics uses so- called "cookies" text files that are saved on your computer allowing for an analysis of your visit to the website.

The information provided by these cookies, such as the time, place and frequency of your visit including your IP address, will be sent to Google in the USA and saved at this location.

On our website, we use Google Analytics with the suffix "_gat._anonymizeIp". In this case, Google will already shorten and thus anonymise your IP address within the member states of the European Union or other signatories of the Agreement on the Economic Area.

Google uses this information to evaluate your visit to our website, to create reports for us about the website activities and to render additional services associated with the use of the website and Internet. Where appropriate, Google will also disclose this information to third parties if legally required or if a third party processes these data on behalf of Google.

Google will never link your IP address with other data from Google on its own account. You can prevent the installation of cookies with the corresponding setting of your browser software; however, we would like to point out that in this case you won't be able to make full use of all the functions on our website.

In addition, Google provides a deactivation add-on for the most common browsers which will give you more control over which data Google will collect from the websites you visit. The add- on tells JavaScript (ga.js) from Google Analytics that no information on the website visit may be sent to Google Analytics. However, the deactivation add-on from Google Analytics for browsers does not prevent information from being sent to us or other web analysis services possibly used by us. Click on the following link to get more information on the installation of the browser add- on: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

If you visit our website using a mobile end device (smartphone or tablet), you must click on this link instead to prevent tracking by Google Analytics on this website in future. This is also possible as an alternative to the browser add-on mentioned above. By clicking the link, an opt- out cookie will be set in your browser that is only valid for this browser and this domain. If you delete cookies in this browser, the opt-out cookie will be deleted as well, so you will have to click on the link again.

If you have agreed to have your web and app browser history linked to your Google account and that information from your Google account can be used to personalise your data, Google will use your data together with Google Analytics data to create target group lists for remarketing purposes across devices. For this purpose, Google Analytics will first collect your Google- authenticated ID on our website which is then linked to your Google account (thus personal data). Google Analytics will then temporarily link your ID to your Google Analytics data in order to optimise our target groups. If you don't agree with this, you can stop this by making the corresponding settings in the "My account" area of your Google account.

Google Doubleclick

Doubleclick by Google is a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland („Google"). Doubleclick by Google uses cookies in order to show you relevant ads. For this purpose, a pseudonym identification number (ID) will assigned to your browser in order to check which ads were shown in your browser and which ads were clicked on. The cookies do not contain any personal information. The use of the DoubleClick cookies allows Google and its partner websites only to place ads based on previous visits to our website or others on the Internet. Google will transmit the information generated by the cookie to a server in the USA and store it at this location. Google complies with the data protection regulations of the "Privacy Shield" agreement and is registered with the "Privacy Shield" programme of the US Department of Commerce. Google will transmit data to third parties only when required by legal provisions or within the scope of the processing of order data. Google will never combine your data with other data collected by Google.

By using our website, you agree with the processing of the data collected about you by Google and with the described method of data processing as well as with the named purpose. You can prevent the storage of cookies via a corresponding setting of your browser software; however, we would like to point out that in this case you won't be able to make full use of all the functions on our website. In addition, you can prevent the collection of the data by Google generated by the cookie and related to the use of the website as well as the processing of these data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link under the item DoubleClick deactivation add-on. Alternatively, you can also deactivate the Doubleclick cookies with this opt-out.

This website uses Google Maps to display maps and to generate route maps.

Google Maps is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland.

Google Googleadservices / Google AdWords Conversion Tracking

This website uses tools of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland, for online marketing. This is used to detect that a visitor has come to our website via a Google ad. Google uses cookies that are saved on your computer allowing for an analysis of the use of the website. The cookies for the so-called conversion tracking are set when you click on an ad placed by Google. These cookies will lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If you want to prevent the conversion tracking, you can make settings in your browser so that cookies from "googleadservices.com" are blocked. You can also exercise your right to an Opt- Out.

If you want to learn more about these methods or want to know your options for preventing Google from using this information, please go to: https://www.google.com/settings/u/0/ads/authenticated

YouTube in extended data protection mode

We use YouTube to incorporate videos. The videos have been embedded in the extended Data Privacy Mode. Like most other websites, YouTube also uses cookies in order to collect information about the visitors to their website. YouTube uses them to create video statistics, prevent fraud and improve user-friendliness, for example. This will also lead to a contact with the Google DoubleClick network. When you start the video, this could trigger further data processing. We have no influence in this regard. For more information on data protection at YouTube, you will find the data privacy statement at: http://www.youtube.com/t/privacy_at_youtube

Online Job Application

  • First name
  • Surname
  • Gender
  • Address
  • Email address:

  • Documents transmitted via the application form (CV, application, etc.)

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

Eloqua

We use the Eloqua service to optimise the communication with our customers. The Eloqua servers of the provider ORACLE Nederland B.V., Hertogswetering 163, 3543 AS Utrecht, P.O. Box 40387, 3504 AD Utrecht, Netherlands are located in the EU (Laarderhoogtweg 57, 1101 EB Amsterdam, Netherlands). In the context of support and administrative services, it cannot be ruled out in individual cases that individual employees of the Oracle Corporation outside the EU may have access to user data when providing contractually obligated services. As a precautionary measure, we have ensured an adequate level of data protection from the Oracle Corporation through sufficient guarantees as required by the German Federal Data Protection Act. Eloqua will place a permanent cookie on the corresponding login page unless there is already an Eloqua-cookie on your device. If you have already visited a website that uses Eloqua, you might already have an Eloqua cookie. Even if this cookie is set on other websites, the information about the visit of our websites is visible only to us and we will not share them with Oracle or any other user of the Eloqua system. It is also not possible for us to record via this cookie information about your visits to other websites or to view them.

For more information on data protection related to the use of Eloqua, please go to: Oracle Privacy Policy.

We may use the Eloqua cookie to analyse how you use our sites so that we are able to improve them on a continuous basis. E-mails that are sent using Eloqua use tracking technologies. We use these data primarily to find out the subjects that are of interest to you by determining whether our e-mails were opened, and on which links you clicked on. We use this information to improve the e-mails that we send to you as well as the services provided by us and to connect them with already existing tracking or profiling information. If you want to prevent the use of Eloqua cookies on your device in the future, go to the following link: Eloqua Opt-Out

Should you not wish that we recognise your computer (hard drive cookies), you can also set your browser so that it will delete cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies or warn you before a cookie is saved. If you do not accept cookies, you will not be able to use some of our services. Cookies basically allow us to determine who you are and thus offer you better and more personalised services.

Security

We have taken technical and administrative security precautions to protect your personal data against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. All of our employees and the service providers working for us are obliged to comply with the valid data protection laws.

Affected Rights

You have a right to information, rectification, erasure or restriction of the processing of your stored data, a right of objection to the processing as well as a right to data portability and a right to complain in accordance with the requirements of data protection law.

Right to information:

You can request information from us concerning whether and to what extent we process your data.

Right to rectification:

If we process your data that is incomplete or incorrect, you can request that we rectify or complete such data at any time.

Right to erasure:

You can request that we erase your data if we process it unlawfully or if the processing interferes disproportionately with your legitimate protection interests. Please note that there may be reasons that prevent immediate erasure, e.g. in the case of legally regulated retention obligations. Irrespective of the exercising of your right to erasure, we will erase your data immediately and completely, unless there is a contractual or legal obligation to retain

Right to restriction of the processing:

You may request that we restrict the processing of your data if

  • you dispute the accuracy of the data, namely for a period of time that enables us to verify the accuracy of the data.
  • the processing of the data is unlawful, but you refuse to have it erased and instead request a restriction on the use of the data,
  • we no longer need the data for the intended purpose, but you still need this data to assert or defend legal claims, or
  • you have lodged an objection to the processing of the data.

Right to data portability:

You may request us to provide you with the data you have made available to us in a structured, current and machine-readable format and to allow you to forward this data to another responsible party without our interference, provided that

  • we process this data on the basis of an agreement which you have submitted and which is revocable or in order to fulfil a contract between us, and
  • this processing is carried out using automated methods.

If it is technically feasible, you can ask us to transfer your data directly to another responsible party.

Right of objection:

If we process your data on the basis of a legitimate interest, you can object to this data processing at any time; this would also apply to any profiling which is based on these provisions. We will then no longer process your data unless we can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. You can object to the processing of your data for the purposes of direct advertising at any time without stating any reasons.

Right of appeal:

If you are of the opinion that we are infringing German or European data protection law when processing your data, please contact us so that we can clarify any questions.
