But we want to be completely open: The Internet lives from data exchange and still has many security gaps. Even if your data is encrypted when you visit our website, there is always a residual risk when exchanging data with other websites at the latest. If you visit other websites – for example via a link on our website – please note that this data protection declaration does not apply to this external website.

Deletion of data and storage periods
Unless otherwise stated, we will delete or anonymise your data as soon as it is no longer needed (e.g. your e-mail address after you have unsubscribed from our newsletter). Your data will also be deleted or anonymised automatically if the mandatory storage period expires (e.g. those required by law for payment transactions). Such data may be needed for longer periods of time for legal reasons. You can request information about all personal data we have stored about you.

The most interesting thing for you as a visitor to our website is probably your IP address, since this can theoretically be traced back to you as a person. As a safeguard to protect your privacy, we delete or anonymise your IP address after your visit. Therefore, all other data possibly attached to it can no longer be traced back to you. It will only serve anonymous and statistical purposes to optimise our website. The purpose of temporarily storing this data is necessary to establish a connection as well as loading our website the way it was designed to. Such data is therefore required to display the website on your screen, to avoid display problems and other technical error messages. The legal basis is the legitimate interest in accordance with the European data protection requirements under Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. In addition, we apply the aforementioned safeguards to protect your data.
Google Fonts (https://fonts.google.com) from Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”), a font collection from Google, are used to visually improve the typeface. These fonts are transferred to your browser’s storage folder and activated when you visit this website or other websites. If this is not supported, the text on the web page is displayed in a standard font only. To enable this, a request is sent to domains such as fonts.googleapis.com or fonts.gstatic.com, which for technical reasons contains your IP address. However, your data will not be merged with other data or traced back to you personally.
As a safeguard to protect your privacy,, we have ensured that by accessing the Google font collection, the data will not be merged with other Google offers, e.g. if you have a Google user account. English information on data protection at Google Fonts confirms this (https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq). In addition, the high security standards of the Google platform and the associated data protection declaration of Google (http://www.google.com/intl/de-DE/privacy) apply. As Google is based in the USA and thus in a so-called third country, further guarantees are required to ensure an appropriate European level of data protection. Google has been certified under the so-called EU-US Privacy Shield and has thus demonstrated an appropriate level of data protection (https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/frameworks/).
The purpose of the data transmission is the correct representation of the fonts in the form set by us. The IP address is required to connect to Google’s servers to download the font collection if it is not already stored on the device. The legal basis is the so-called legitimate interest, which has been examined in order to pursue the purpose and within the framework of the aforementioned protective measures and in accordance with the European data protection requirements under Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
To make it easier to reach us, we have integrated the map function of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”) via an interface (API). For technical reasons, your IP address is transmitted to Google’s servers so that the map can be displayed in your browser with our location.
The high security standards of the Google platform and the associated data protection declaration of Google (http://www.google.com/intl/de-DE/privacy) are regarded as protective measures. As Google is based in the USA and thus in a so-called third country, further guarantees are required to ensure an appropriate European level of data protection. Google has been certified under the so-called EU-US Privacy Shield and has thus demonstrated an appropriate level of data protection (https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/frameworks/).
The purpose of data transmission is to integrate Google’s map function, which is popular among our users and can be used to display our location graphically without having to leave our website. The legal basis is the so-called legitimate interest, which has been examined in order to pursue the purpose and within the framework of the aforementioned protective measures and in accordance with the European data protection requirements under Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses the advertising and analytics cookies described above to analyze our website with regard to your usage behavior. The information generated by these cookies is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, your IP address is shortened before the usage statistics are evaluated, so that no direct connection to you as a person can be made. For this purpose, we use the “anonymizeIp” function to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses. Google will use the anonymous information collected by the cookies to evaluate the usage of the website and to compile reports on website activity. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google.

As a safeguard to protect your privacy, contact is established via an encrypted connection – just like a visit to the rest of the website. In addition, we apply the principle of data minimization and collect only the data actually required in the contact form. After the successful establishment of contact with you and final omission of the contact reason your data are deleted. The purpose of the data requested is to contact you, which is why the data is only used for this purpose. The legal basis is your consent in accordance with the European data protection requirements under Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
We collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends corresponding application documents to us by electronic means, for example by e-mail or via a web form on the website. If we conclude an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If we does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents shall be deleted 3 months after notification of the decision of refusal, provided that no other legitimate interests of us stand in the way of deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a burden of proof in proceedings under the German General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
