The protection of your personal data is very important to us. This is why we handle such data confidentially according to the legal requirements as well as this policy.
Personal data is only information that refers to your identity, such as your name, address, phone number or email address. In principle, you can use our websites without disclosing personal data concerning yourself. We only store personal data if you communicate this to us when establishing contact. We will not forward your personal data to third parties.
When you visit our website, information about accessing our server may also be saved. This data includes the browser type, browser version, operating system, referrer URL or date and time of server request. The host of our websites automatically collects and stores this information in so-called server log files that each browser transmits automatically. This data is not personal data. It is exclusively used for statistical purposes and automatically deleted after 53 days. However, we reserve the right to subsequently review this data if there are concrete indications which give rise to legitimate suspicion of unlawful use.
When you visit our websites, data will be transmitted over the internet in unencrypted form. To guarantee sufficient security of your data during transmission, we make use of the latest available encryption methods (SSL). You can recognize this from the indication >>https<< before our domain name, and the display in the address bar of your browser also indicates a secure connection. We undertake technical and organisational measures to secure our website and other systems against the loss, access, modification or distribution of your data by unauthorised persons. We cannot guarantee complete data security during communication via email. Accordingly, we recommend you to send information to us by mail, particularly for correspondence with sensitive or important content.
If you would like to receive our newsletter, we need you to provide us with an email address as well as additional information allowing us to verify that you are the owner of the indicated email address and have consented to receive the newsletter (e.g. name and time of registration). For this purpose, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure. On our website, we use the mailing functions provided by CleverReach (Provider: CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, M�hlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede, Germany) in order to mail our newsletter. For this reason, the data you provide when subscribing to the newsletter (name, email address, IP address as well as date and time of subscription) will be transmitted to a CleverReach server located in Germany. You can find more detailed information online at https://www.cleverreach.com/de/datenschutz/. You can withdraw your consent to the storage of data as well as its use for mailing the newsletter at any time, for instance by following the >>Unsubscribe<< link in the newsletter or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. After you cease to receive the newsletter, your data will be deleted within 12 months unless statutory retention obligations prevent this.
Our newsletter emails contain a special technology for collecting user behaviour, so-called counting pixels (web bugs). This allows us to identify whether and when a newsletter email is opened and which links are clicked within the email. We store data collected in this manner to improve the design of our newsletter and to address the requests of our customers. The goal of collection is to send content that ideally targets individual subscribers, i.e. personalised content. By withdrawing your consent to receive our newsletter, your consent to newsletter tracking will also be withdrawn.
Third-party content from other websites is embedded on some of our pages, such as map material from Google Maps or videos from YouTube. These regularly require the providers of this content (third-party providers) to detect your IP address as the user of our website and the content of the third-party provider. Without this information, the relevant content cannot be sent to the respective user's browser. Therefore, the IP address is necessary in order to display this content. We strive only to use content if the third-party providers exclusively use this IP address in order to deliver their content. Unfortunately, however, we have no influence over whether third-party providers save IP addresses, for instance for statistical purposes. Insofar as we are aware or become aware that this is occurring, we will inform you of these circumstances.
On our website, we use the web analysis service Google Analytics (Provider: Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). Google Analytics uses so-called �cookies�, text files stored on your computer that make it possible to analyse your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is generally transferred to Google servers in the USA and stored there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports about website activity and to perform other services associated with website use and internet use for the operator of this website. The IP address transmitted by your browser in connection with Google Analytics will not be linked with other data held by Google. You can prevent the storage of cookies by changing your browser settings accordingly. However, we inform you that in this case it may not be possible to use all features of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie concerning your use of this website (incl. your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. In addition or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can prevent collection by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link: Click here to deactivate Google Analytics By doing so, an opt-out cookie will be set to prevent the future collection of your data when you visit our website as long as the cookie is stored on your computer.

As needed, we also offer job advertisements that can be responded to electronically via email. Applicant data is collected, stored and processed for the purpose of managing the application process. This application data particularly includes applicant name, address, phone number, email address, date of birth, education information or grades. If an application results in the conclusion of an employment contract, these application data may be stored for the typical organisational and administrative process of the relevant personnel files. Otherwise, that is, if applicants are rejected, the application data will be deleted two months after notification of rejection. This applies as long as specific legal requirements do not oppose this (e.g. obligation to provide evidence according to the General Equal Treatment Act) or if the applicant in question has consented to longer storage of his or her application data.
According to the federal data protection law (BDSG), you have the right to receive information free of charge about data stored concerning you, as well as a right to rectification, blocking or erasure of this data depending on the circumstances.
