The processing and temporary storage of the IP address is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the IP address of the user must be stored for the duration of the session. The log files contain IP addresses or other data that enable the user to be identified. The data is stored and processed in log files on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b, f GDPR in order to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data is used to optimize our website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. The aforementioned purposes also constitute our legitimate interests in the processing of your data. Any processing of personal data will be carried out exclusively for the purposes stated and to the extent necessary to achieve these purposes. The above data will not be used for advertising, customer consulting or market research purposes.
If you contact us (e.g. by contact form, telephone or e-mail) we process the personal data you provide to us for the purpose of answering your enquiries and for individual communication. The disclosure of this data by the user is expressly on a voluntary basis. We therefore use the information stored by us on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR to process your request and on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR for purposes of customer care and possibly market research (anonymous, internal evaluation of the user structure). Our legitimate interest lies in designing our services to meet user’s needs and promoting user and customer satisfaction. Your data will be deleted after final processing of your request, provided that there are no legal obligations to store the deletion.
1.3 Job Application
We may use our website to inform you about vacancies in our company. If you apply for a job, we will process your personal data, which you transmit to us within the scope of your application, on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b and c GDPR as well as § 26 BDSG (German Federal Data Protection Act) solely for the processing of your application. We will treat your data as strictly confidential in accordance with the statutory provisions.
Your personal data will be accessible to the respective employees responsible for the application process. Your personal data is required for the application. If you do not provide us with this data, you cannot apply to us.
If you do not arrange for your data to be deleted, your data will remain stored for a maximum of six months after completion of the application process. If we wish to retain your application for longer because your profile could correspond to a job that will only be advertised in the future, we will ask for your written consent.
If you are hired as a result of an application, your data will always be stored for the period of the respective contractual relationship.

1.6 Social Media
On our website, we may make social media plug-ins (“plug-ins”) of the social networks Xing, Facebook, Google+, Twitter and LinkedIn available on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. They establish a connection to the respective service provider. Data on the browser behaviour of the user is transmitted to the respective service provider. When users click on one of the plug-ins, personal data (IP address of the user as well as the web address (URL) of the page currently visited by the user, including time and location) is transferred to the respective service provider and processed by the latter. Our legitimate interest in the integration of the services basically consists in the optimisation of the usability and the content for the individual users of our website as well as, if necessary, the networking of our marketing activities with the respective services of the respective providers. Further information on data processing can be found in the data protection information of the respective service providers:
Users who are members of the aforementioned social networks and do not want their data to be collected via our websites by the respective social network must log out of their respective social media account before visiting our websites.
If data is transferred to US Facebook, Google, LinkedIn and/or Twitter servers via the integrated plug-ins, an appropriate level of data protection pursuant to Art. 45 Para. 1 GDPR results from the participation of the providers in the Privacy Shield Agreement.
1.7 Data erasure and storage period
The personal data of the persons concerned will be erased or blocked by us as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. In the case of data processing for the provision of the web page, the erasure takes place when the respective session has ended. If personal data are stored in log files, they will be erased after seven days at the latest. A storage going beyond this is possible if the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated beforehand, so that an assignment of the data is no longer possible.
