Types of personal data and purpose of processing

  • Contact details (e. g. telephone numbers, e-mail addresses)
  • Content data (e. g. text input)
  • Usage data (e. g. access times, amount of data sent, reference/source for accessing this website)
  • Metadata/communication data (e.g. device information, browser used, operating system used, IP address used)
  • Business-related data for the provision of contractual services, customer care and marketing:
    • Contract data (e. g. item, term)
    • Payment details (e. g. bank details, payment history)

The website operator collects data about access to the website and saves it as “server log files”. The purpose of this processing is to provide all information and content of the website, to handle contact requests, to communicate with users, to ensure compliance with security measures and to create statistical evaluations to improve the website. In addition, the website operator reserves the right to retrospectively check “server log files” should concrete indications point to unlawful use.

Handling of personal data

The website operator collects, uses and transfers your personal data (e.g. to processors and third parties in Germany, the EU or third countries) only if this is permitted within the legal framework (see section “Applicable legal basis”) or you expressly consent to the data processing. Disclosure to third countries is done only on the basis of special guarantees for the implementation of the sufficient GDPR data protection level on behalf of the controller.

If you contact the website operator through the offered contact options, your details will be stored so that they can be used to process and answer your request. Without your consent, this data will not be disclosed to third parties.

In the application process, we process personal data solely for the purpose and in the context of the application process to fulfil our (pre) contractual obligations. Applicants can send us their application documents via e-mail. We cannot accept any responsibility for the transmission of the documents between the sender and the reception on our server. We therefore ask you to take responsibility for the necessary encryption of the transmission. In the case of employment based on a successful application, we process the information we have received for this purpose. Otherwise, we refer to the data subject rights regarding the deletion of personal data in connection with the statutory storage obligations.

Rights of the user to information, correction and deletion

You as the user/data subject shall receive on request from us free information as to whether and, if so, which of your personal data is processed by the website operator for which purpose. If your request does not conflict with a legal duty to store data (e.g. data retention), you are entitled to correct incorrect data, limit processing and block or delete this data. Furthermore, you have the right to revoke consent given to the website operator or to object to the future processing of your personal data.

Integration of services and contents of third parties

We integrate content and services such as videos or fonts from third parties on our website. This is based on our legitimate interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our website. For the presentation and delivery of the content to the user’s browser, the website operator transmits the user’s IP address to the respective third-party provider. The provider can also use so-called “pixel tags” for statistical and marketing purposes that evaluate information such as visitor traffic and save the pseudonymised data using cookies on the user’s device or connect to information from other sources.

Google Web Fonts

This site uses so-called web fonts, provided by Google, for the uniform representation of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.

To do this, the browser you use must connect to Google’s servers. As a result, Google learns that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a consistent and attractive presentation of our online services. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font will be used by your computer.

The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers and the easy findability of the places we have indicated on the website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
