You can visit our website without telling us who you are. In order to be able to display our websites, you are only obliged to provide the data transmitted by your browser to our server (see “Logfiles”). Further personal data will only be stored if you voluntarily enter it on the website or use corresponding functions, e.g. input via our contact form or subscription to our newsletter.
Newsletter and contact
If you subscribe to our electronic newsletter, you consent to the storage of your name and e-mail address for the purpose of sending the newsletter (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR). This data will not be passed on to third parties. You can revoke your newsletter consent for the future and thus cancel your newsletter subscription at any time (unsubscribe function on our websites).
You can enter your personal data on our website to contact us. Only the data required to process your request is mandatory and marked as such. Providing further data may be helpful for the processing of your request, but is not mandatory (voluntary data).
With your consent, these data are used and stored exclusively for the purpose of processing your message (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR). A use for other purposes or a passing on to third parties does not take place, unless you agree expressly (consent).
Our applicant portal gives you the opportunity to send us your information about your application. We collect different types of information in your application. This includes in particular your personal data with contact information as well as a description of your education, work experience and skills. The fields marked with an asterisk are mandatory and require information. In addition, you have the option of providing us with electronically stored documents such as certificates or cover letters. Notwithstanding the above, it is also possible to send us application documents by post.
With your application you assure that the information you provide is true. We point out that any false statement or deliberate omission may constitute a reason for a cancellation or subsequent dismissal.
We do not require any information from you that is not usable under the General Equal Treatment Act (race, ethnic origin, gender, religion or belief, disability, age or sexual identity). We also do not ask you to provide information on illness, pregnancy, ethnic origin, political opinions, philosophical or religious beliefs, membership of a trade union, physical or mental health or sex life. The same applies to content that is likely to infringe the rights of third parties (e.g. copyrights, press law or general rights of third parties).
Personal data will only be collected, stored, processed and used for purposes in connection with your interest in current or future employment with us and the processing of your application; the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b GDPR, § 26 German Federal Data Protection Act. The data will not be passed on to third parties.
If your application is successful, the data provided may be used for administrative purposes in the context of employment or for the purpose of carrying out the employment relationship.
Your online application will only be processed and taken note of by the relevant contacts at our company. All employees entrusted with data processing are obliged to maintain the confidentiality of your data. Your details will not be disclosed to third parties under any circumstances. The processing of the data takes place exclusively in Germany.
If we are unable to offer you employment, we will keep the information you provide for up to six months for the purpose of answering questions relating to your application and refusal.
However, if your application documents are of general interest and only currently no suitable employment is available, we will keep and store your data accordingly. This way we can contact you for future vacancies.

Links to social media platforms
Each time you access our site, we collect the following information about your computer: The IP address of your computer, the request of your browser and the time of this request. In addition, the status and the amount of data transferred are recorded within the scope of this request, as well as product and version information about the browser used and the operating system of your computer. We also record the website from which our page was accessed. The IP address of your computer is only stored for the duration of your use of the website and is then immediately deleted or made anonymous by shortening it. The remaining data is stored for a limited period of time. We use this data for the operation of our website, in particular to detect and eliminate errors on the website, to determine the utilization of the website and to make adjustments or improvements (legal basis: Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR).
This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. In this way, IP addresses are further processed in a shortened form, so that direct personal references can be ruled out.
We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. The statistics we collect allow us to improve our services and make them more interesting for you as a user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the U.S., Google has submitted itself to the EU-US Privacy Shield. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.

Google Adwords Conversion Tracking
We use the offer of Google Adwords to draw attention to our offers with the help of advertising materials (so-called Google Adwords) on external websites. We are able to determine how successful the individual advertising measures are in relation to the data of the advertising campaigns. We are interested in showing you advertisements that are of interest to you, to make our website more interesting for you and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs.
These advertising media are delivered by Google via so-called “Ad Servers”. For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, through which certain parameters for measuring success, such as the insertion of ads or clicks by users, can be measured. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Adwords stores a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually expire after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. For this cookie, the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (mark that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values.
These cookies enable Google to recognize your Internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of an Adwords customer's website and the cookie stored on their computer has not expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page. Each Adwords customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be traced via the websites of Adwords customers. We do not collect and process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. On the basis of these evaluations we can recognize which of the used advertising measures are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of advertising material; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information.
Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google server. We have no influence on the extent and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our level of knowledge: By integrating AdWords Conversion, Google receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an ad from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google may associate your visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider may obtain and store your IP address.
You can prevent participation in this tracking process in various ways: a) by setting your browser software accordingly, in particular by suppressing third-party cookies, you will not receive any ads from third-party providers; b) by deactivating cookies for conversion tracking, by setting your browser so that cookies are blocked by the domain “www.googleadservices.com”, www.google.de/settings/ads, this setting being deleted when you delete your cookies; c) by deactivating the interest-based ads of the providers that are part of the “About Ads” self-regulation campaign via the link www.aboutads.info/choices, this setting being deleted when you delete your cookies; d) by permanently deactivating Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome in your browsers under the link www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. Please note that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this offer in full.
The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. Further information on data protection at Google can be found here: www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy. Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield.
Besides Adwords Conversion we use the application Google Remarketing. This is a process we would like to use to contact you again. This application allows you to see our advertisements after visiting our website when you continue to use the Internet. This is done by means of cookies stored in your browser, which are used to record and evaluate your usage behaviour when visiting various websites by Google. This is how Google can determine your previous visit to our website. According to Google's own statements, Google does not merge the data collected in the context of remarketing with your personal data, which may be stored by Google. According to Google, pseudonymisation is used for remarketing in particular.
Facebook custom audiences
- The website also uses the remarketing function “Custom Audiences” of Facebook Inc. (“Facebook”). This allows users of the website to see interest-based advertisements (“Facebook ads”) when visiting the social network Facebook or other websites that also use the process. We are interested in showing you advertisements that are of interest to you in order to make our website more interesting for you.
- Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Facebook server. We have no control over the extent and further use of the data collected through Facebook's use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our level of knowledge: By integrating Facebook Custom Audiences, Facebook receives the information that you have visited the corresponding website on our website, or that you have clicked on an ad from us. If you are registered with a Facebook service, Facebook can associate your visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Facebook or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider may obtain and store your IP address and other identifying information.
- Disabling the Facebook Custom Audiences feature is availabe for logged in users under facebook settings.
- The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. For more information about Facebook's data processing, please visit www.facebook.com/about/privacy.
EMBEDDED CONTENT FROM THIRD PARTIES (E.G. GOOGLE MAPS)
If third party content such as Google Maps is displayed on our websites, it is necessary to transfer your IP address and the content displayed under “Logfiles” to the third-party provider in order to make this content available and to display it in your browser. We have no influence on data processing at the third-party provider. If you are logged in to the third party with a user account, the third party may associate your user behavior with your user account. If necessary, the third-party provider stores your data as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the design of its website in line with requirements. You must address any rights of objection against the creation of these user profiles to the third-party provider.
