This page uses SSL/TLS encryption for security and the protection of the transmission of confidential information, such as purchase orders or enquiries which you submit to us as the operator of the website. You can recognise encrypted connections when the address bar in your browser switches from ‘http://’ to ‘https://’ and a padlock icon is displayed in the browser bar.
If SSL/TLS encryption is active, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Access, erasure and rectification
Within the framework of applicable law, you have at any time the right of free-of-charge access to your stored personal data, their origin or recipient and the purpose of the data processing and, where applicable, the right to rectification or erasure of these data. In this regard and for any other questions on the issue of personal data, you can contact us at any time.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time in this regard. The right to the restriction of processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of the personal data we hold about you, we will usually need time to verify this. You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data for the period required for this verification.
- If the processing of your personal data has happened or 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 establish 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 according to Art. 21 paragraph 1 GDPR, there must be a balancing of your interests and ours. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, such data may – apart from their storage – only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a member state.

3. Data collection on this website
In some cases, cookies from third party service providers can be stored on your device when you access our site (‘third party cookies’). They allow us or you to use certain services provided by the third party (example: cookies used for the processing of payments).
Cookies have various functions. Many cookies are necessary for technical reasons; without them, website functions could not work (example: shopping basket function, playing videos). Other cookies help analyse user actions or display advertisements.
Cookies that are necessary for performing electronic communication, for providing certain functions for your benefit (example: shopping basket function) or for website optimisation (example: cookies that measure web traffic) (‘necessary cookies’) are stored on the basis of Article 6 paragraph 1 lit.f GDPR unless a different legal basis is specified. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of necessary cookies for the error-free and optimal provision of its services. Provided the consent to the storage of cookies and similar recognition technologies has been requested, data are processed exclusively based on this consent (Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR and § 25 paragraph 1 TTDSG ); the consent can be withdrawn at any time.
You can adjust your browser settings to alert you when a website is attempting to place a cookie; you can allow cookies on a case-by-case basis, reject cookies in certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when exiting the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be limited.
To the extent that cookies are used by third parties or for analytical purposes, we will notify you separately in the framework of this Date Protection Statement and, where applicable, request your consent.
Server log files
The website provider collects and stores data automatically in so-called server log files that your browser automatically transmits to us. These include:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Timestamp of the server request
- IP address
These data are not combined with other data sources.
These data are collected on the basis of Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in displaying the website free from technical errors and in optimising the website – the server log files must be recorded for this.
Enquiry by e-mail, telephone or fax
If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your enquiry including all resulting personal data (name, enquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your enquiry. We do not pass on these data without your consent.
The processing of these data is based on Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. b GDPR if your enquiry is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for steps requested prior to entering into a contract. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective handling of enquiries addressed to use (Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR) or on your consent (Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR) where this consent has been requested; the consent can be withdrawn at any time.
The data you send to us via contact enquiries remain with us until you request their erasure or withdraw your consent for storage or until the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e. g. after we have dealt with your enquiry). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.
4. Our own services
Handling of applicant data
We provide you with the opportunity to apply for a position at our company (e. g. by e-mail, post or via the online application form). In the following, we inform you about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected as part of the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing and use of your data will be carried out in accordance with applicable data protection law and all other statutory provisions and that your data will be treated in strict confidence.
Scope and purpose of the data collection
If you send us an application, we process your associated personal data (e. g. contact and communication information, application documents, notes taken during interviews, etc.) insofar as this is necessary to decide on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is § 26 BDSG (German Federal Data Protection Act; initiation of an employment relationship), Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. b GDPR (general contract initiation) and – if you have given your consent – Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR. The consent can be withdrawn at any time. Your personal data will only be passed on within our company to persons who are involved in processing your application.
If your application is successful, the data submitted by you will be stored in our data processing systems on the basis of §26 BDSG and Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. b GDPR for the purpose of conducting the employment relationship.
Data retention period
If we are unable to make you a job offer, if you reject a job offer or withdraw your application, we reserve the right to retain the data you have provided on the basis of our legitimate interests (Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR) for up to 6 months from the end of the application process (rejection or withdrawal of the application). The data will subsequently be erased and the physical application documents destroyed. The retention is intended in particular for evidential purposes in the event of a legal dispute. If it is evident that the data will be required after the 6-month period has expired (e. g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), the data will not be erased until the purpose for continued retention no longer applies.
Longer retention is also possible if you have given the appropriate consent (Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR) or if statutory retention obligations prevent erasure.
Inclusion in applicant pool
If we do not make you a job offer, we may be able to include you in our pool of applicants. In the case of inclusion in the applicant pool, all documents and details from your application will be transferred to the applicant pool in order to contact you if suitable vacancies arise.
Inclusion in the applicant pool is based exclusively on your express consent (Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR). Giving consent is voluntary and is not related to the current application process. The data subject can withdraw his consent at any time. In this case, the data will be irrevocably erased from the applicant pool, unless there are legal reasons for retention. The data from the applicant pool will be irrevocably erased no later than two years after consent has been given.
