Unless a more specific storage period has been specified within this privacy policy, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for processing the data no longer applies. If you assert a justified request for deletion or revoke consent to data processing, your data will be deleted unless we have other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g. retention periods under tax or commercial law); in the latter case, the data will be deleted after these reasons no longer apply. 

General information on the legal basis for data processing on this website 

If you have consented to data processing, we process your personal data on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR if special categories of data are processed according to Art. 9 para. 1 GDPR. In the event of express consent to the transfer of personal data to third countries, data processing is also carried out on the basis of Art. 49 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.

Information on the relevant legal basis in each individual case is provided in the following paragraphs of this data protection declaration. 

Note on data transfer to the USA and other third countries 

We use, among other things, tools from companies based in the USA or other third countries that are not secure under data protection law. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to these third countries and processed there. We would like to point out that no level of data protection comparable to that in the EU can be guaranteed in these countries. For example, US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as a data subject being able to take legal action against this. It can therefore not be ruled out that US authorities (e.g. intelligence services) process, evaluate and permanently store your data located on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities. 

Revoking your consent to data processing 

Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation. 

Right to object to the collection of data in specific cases and to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR) 

IF THE DATA PROCESSING IS BASED ON ART. 6 ABS. 1 LIT. E OR F OF THE GDPR 

YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA AT ANY TIME ON GROUNDS RELATING TO YOUR PARTICULAR SITUATION; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS. THE RESPECTIVE LEGAL BASIS ON WHICH PROCESSING IS BASED CAN BE FOUND IN THIS DATA PROTECTION DECLARATION. IF YOU OBJECT, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA UNLESS WE CAN DEMONSTRATE COMPELLING LEGITIMATE GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING WHICH OVERRIDE YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS, OR THE PROCESSING IS FOR THE PURPOSE OF ASSERTING, EXERCISING OR DEFENDING LEGAL CLAIMS (OBJECTION UNDER ARTICLE 21(1) GDPR). IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA ARE PROCESSED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA CONCERNING YOU FOR THE PURPOSE OF SUCH MARKETING; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING INSOFAR AS IT IS RELATED TO SUCH DIRECT MARKETING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21 PARA. 2 GDPR). 

Right of Complaint with the Competent Supervisory Authority 

In the event of breaches of the GDPR, the data subjects shall have a right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged infringement. The right of appeal is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy. 

Right to data transferability 

You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in performance of a contract or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format, which we process automatically. 

If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible. 

Information, deletion and correction 

Within the framework of the applicable legal regulations, you have the right at any time to request information about your stored personal data free of charge, its origin and recipients and the purpose of the data purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, the right to have this data corrected or deleted.

The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases: 

If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to check this. For the duration of the verification, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. If the processing of your personal data happened/is happening unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure. If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of erasure. If you have lodged an objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR, a balancing of your and our interests must be carried out. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data. If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data may – apart from being stored – only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State. 

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, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. 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 line. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

The use of contact data published within the scope of the imprint obligation to send advertising and information material that has not been expressly requested is hereby prohibited. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as spam e-mails.

  1. Application data

What are application data? 

Application Data Summary Data subjects: users who apply for a job with us Purpose: Handling of an application procedure Data processed: Name, address, contact details, email address, telephone number, proof of qualifications (certificates), possibly special category data. Storage period: if the application is successful, until the end of the employment relationship. Otherwise, the data will be deleted after the application process or stored for a certain period with your consent. Legal basis: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR(consent), legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR), Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR (contract), Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a. GDPR (processing of special categories) 

You can apply to us via a recruiting tool for a job in our company. All data that we receive and process from you as part of an application counts as application data. In doing so, you always disclose personal data such as your name, date of birth, address and telephone number. 

Why do we process application data? 

We process your data so that we can run a proper selection procedure in relation to the advertised position. In addition, we also like to keep your application documents in our application archive. This is because it often happens that a cooperation for the advertised position does not work out for a variety of reasons, but we are impressed by you and your application and can very well imagine a future cooperation. Provided you give us your consent, we will archive your documents so that we can easily contact you for future assignments in our company. We guarantee that we will handle your data with particular care and only ever process your data within the legal framework. Even within our company, your data will only be passed on to people who are directly involved with your application. In short: Your data is in safe hands with us! 

What data is processed? 

If you apply to us by e-mail, for example, we will of course also receive personal data, as mentioned above. Even the e-mail address counts as personal data. However, in the course of an application procedure, only those data are processed that are relevant for our decision as to whether or not we want to welcome you to our team. Exactly which data is processed depends primarily on the job advertisement. Mostly, however, it is a matter of name, date of birth, contact details and proof of qualifications. If you submit the application via an online form, the data will be passed on to us in encrypted form. If you send us the application by e-mail, this encryption does not take place. We cannot therefore accept any responsibility for the way in which the data is transmitted. However, once the data is on our servers, we are responsible for the lawful handling of your data. 

During an application process, in addition to the above-mentioned data, information about your health or ethnic origin may also be requested so that we and you can exercise the rights relating to labour law, social security and social protection and, at the same time, comply with the corresponding obligations. These data are special category data. 

Here is a list of possible data we receive from you and process: 

  • Name
  • Contact address
  • E-Mail address
  • Phone number
  • Date of birth
  • Information that emerges from the cover letter and CV
  • Proof of qualifications (e.g.) Certificates
  • Special category data (e.g. ethnic origin, health data, religious beliefs)
  • Usage data (websites visited, access data ect.)
  • Metadata (IP address, device information)

How long will the data be stored? 

If we accept you as a team member in our company, your data will be further processed for the purpose of the employment relationship and kept with us at least until the employment relationship ends. All application documents are then placed in your employee file. 

If we do not offer you the job, if you reject our offer or withdraw your application, we may keep your data for up to 6 months after the end of the application process due to legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). After that, both your electronic data and all data from physical application documents will be completely deleted or destroyed. We retain your data, for example, so that we can still answer any follow-up questions or so that we can provide evidence of the application in the event of a legal dispute. If a legal dispute arises and we may still need the data after the 6 months have expired, we will only delete the data when there is no longer any reason to retain it. If there are legal retention obligations to fulfil, we must generally store the data for longer than 6 months. 

Furthermore, we may also store your data for longer if you have given us special consent to do so. We do this, for example, if we can well imagine working with you in the future. Then it is helpful to have your data archived so that we can contact you without any problems. In this case, the data will be added to our applicant pool. Of course, you can revoke your consent to the longer storage of your data at any time.

BootstrapCDN Privacy Policy Summary Data subject: Visitors to the website Purpose: To optimise our service performance (to enable the website to load faster) Data processed: Data such as your IP address, browser type, browser version, which web page is loaded or time and date of page visit More details below in this privacy policy. Storage period: For the most part, data is stored until it is no longer needed to fulfil the service. Legal basis: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR (consent), Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR (legitimate interests). 

What is BootstrapCDN? 

In order to deliver all our individual web pages (sub-pages of our website) to you quickly and securely on all devices, we use the Content Delivery Network (CDN) BootstrapCDN, an open source service provided by jsdelivr.com of the Polish software company ProspectOne, Królewska 65A/1, 30-081, Kraków, Poland. A Content Delivery Network (CDN) is a network of regionally distributed servers that are connected to each other via the Internet. Through this network, content, especially very large files, can be delivered quickly even during large load peaks. 

Why do we use BootstrapCDN? 

Of course, we want to offer you a comprehensive and well-functioning service with our website. This also includes a fast website. With jsdelivr.com-CDN, our website can load much faster for you. The use of jsdelivr.com-CDN is especially helpful for users from abroad, as here the page can be delivered from a server nearby. 

What data is processed by BootstrapCDN? 

BootstrapCDN works in such a way that so-called JavaScript libraries are delivered to your browser. If your browser downloads a file from BootstrapCDN, your IP address is transmitted during the connection to the Bootstrap CDN server. This means that personal data can also be sent and stored. BootstrapCDN can thus collect and store user data such as IP address, browser type, browser version, which web page is loaded or time and date of the page visit. The privacy policy of BootstrapCDN or jsdelivr.com explicitly states that the company does not use cookies or other tracking services. 

How long and where is the data stored? 

BootstrapCDN has servers located in various countries and your data may be stored outside the European Economic Area. BootstrapCDN will retain personal data processed on our behalf for as long as necessary to provide services offered, to comply with legal obligations, to resolve disputes and to enforce agreements. 

Right of objection 

You always have the right to information, correction and deletion of your personal data. If you have any questions, you can also contact BootstrapCDN’s responsible persons at any time. If you want to prevent this data transfer, you can use a JavaScript blocker (see for example https://noscript.net/) or deactivate the execution of JavaScript codes in your browser. Please note, however, that this will mean that the website can no longer offer the usual service (such as fast loading speed). 

Legal foundation 

If you have consented to BootstrapCDN being used, the legal basis for the corresponding data processing is this consent. According to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR (consent), this consent constitutes the legal basis for the processing of personal data as it may occur during the collection by BootstrapCDN. On our part, there is also a legitimate interest in using BootstrapCDN to optimise our online service and make it more secure. The corresponding legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR (Legitimate Interests). Nevertheless, we only use BootstrapCDN if you have given your consent. 

We would like to point out that according to the opinion of the European Court of Justice, there is currently no adequate level of protection for data transfer to the USA. The data processing is essentially carried out by BootstrapCDN. This may result in data not being processed and stored anonymously. Furthermore, US government authorities may have access to individual data. It may also happen that this data is linked to data from possible other BootstrapCDN services where you have a user account.

Cookie Consent Management Platform Summary Data subjects: website visitors Purpose: To obtain and manage consent for certain cookies and thus the use of certain tools. Data processed: Data used to manage the cookie settings set such as IP address, time of consent, type of consent, individual consents. More details can be found with the respective tool used. Storage period: Depends on the tool used, you must be prepared for periods of several years. Legal basis: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. A GDPR (consent),

Art. 6 para. 1 lit.f GDPR (legitimate interests). 

What is a Cookie consent management platform? 

We use Consent Management Platform (CMP) software on our website to help us and you deal correctly and safely with scripts and cookies in use. The software automatically creates a cookie pop-up, scans and checks all scripts and cookies, provides cookie consent for you as required by data protection law and helps us and you to keep track of all cookies. With most cookie consent management tools, all existing cookies are identified and categorised. You as a website visitor then decide yourself whether and which scripts and cookies you allow or do not allow. The following graphic illustrates the relationship between browser, web server and CMP. 

Why do we use a cookie management tool? 

Our goal is to offer you the best possible transparency in the area of data protection. In addition, we are also legally obliged to do so. We want to inform you as well as possible about all tools and all cookies that can store and process data from you. It is also your right to decide for yourself which cookies you accept and which you do not. In order to grant you this right, we first need to know exactly which cookies have ended up on our website in the first place. Thanks to a cookie management tool that regularly scans the website for all existing cookies, we know about all cookies and can provide you with GDPR-compliant information about them. You can then accept or reject cookies via the consent system. 

What data is processed? 

Within the framework of our cookie management tool, you can manage each individual cookie yourself and have complete control over the storage and processing of your data. The declaration of your consent is stored so that we do not have to query you each time you visit our website again and we can also prove your consent if required by law. This is stored either in an opt-in cookie or on a server. Depending on the provider of the cookie management tool, the storage period of your cookie consent varies. In most cases, this data (e.g. pseudonymous user ID, time of consent, details of cookie categories or tools, browser, device information) is stored for up to two years. 

Duration of data processing 

We will inform you about the duration of data processing below, provided we have further information on this. In general, we only process personal data for as long as is strictly necessary for the provision of our services and products. Data stored in cookies are stored for different lengths of time. Some cookies are deleted as soon as you leave the website, others may be stored in your browser for several years. The exact duration of data processing depends on the tool used, but in most cases you should be prepared for a storage period of several years. In the respective data protection declarations of the individual providers, you will usually receive precise information about the duration of data processing. 

Right of objection 

You also have the right and the possibility to revoke your consent to the use of cookies at any time. This works either via our cookie management tool or via other opt-out functions. For example, you can also prevent data collection through cookies by managing, deactivating or deleting cookies in your browser. Information on special cookie management tools, if available, can be found in the following sections. 

Legal foundation 

If you agree to cookies, your personal data will be processed and stored via these cookies. If we are allowed to use cookies through your consent (Article 6 (1) lit. A GDPR), this consent is also the legal basis for the use of cookies or the processing of your data.

In order to be able to manage the consent to cookies and to enable you to give your consent, we use cookie consent management platform software. The use of this software enables us to efficiently operate the website in a legally compliant manner, which constitutes a legitimate interest (Article 6 (1) lit. F GDPR)

  2. Microsoft Teams privacy policy

We use Microsoft Teams, an online meeting and video conferencing service, on our website. The service provider is the American company Microsoft Corporation, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399, USA. 

Microsoft also processes data from you in the USA, among other places. We would like to point out that according to the opinion of the European Court of Justice, there is currently no adequate level of protection for the transfer of data to the USA. This may be associated with various risks for the lawfulness and security of the data processing. 

Microsoft uses so-called standard contractual clauses (= Art. 46. para. 2 and 3 GDPR) as the basis for data processing with recipients located in third countries (outside the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, i.e. in particular in the USA) or a data transfer there. Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) are templates provided by the EU Commission and are intended to ensure that your data comply with European data protection standards even if they are transferred to third countries (such as the USA) and stored there. Through these clauses, Microsoft undertakes to comply with the European level of data protection when processing your relevant data, even if the data is stored, processed and managed in the US. These clauses are based on an implementing decision of the EU Commission. You can find the decision and the corresponding standard contractual clauses here, among other places: https://eur-lex.europa.eu/eli/dec_impl/2021/914/oj?locale=de 

More information on Microsoft’s standard contractual clauses can be found at https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/compliance/regulatory/offering-eu-model-clauses
