Insofar as you have given us consent to process personal data for certain purposes, in particular for contacting you (e.g. via our contact form or by e-mail for processing and handling the inquiry, sending newsletters and e-mails), the lawfulness of this processing is based on your consent. Consent given can be revoked at any time. Please note that the revocation is only effective for the future.

When you contact us (via contact form or e-mail) in connection with your application, we process your data in order to assess your suitability for the position (or other open positions in our companies, if applicable) and to carry out the application process. Your applicant data will be viewed by the HR department after receipt of your application. Suitable applications are then forwarded internally to the department managers for the respective open position. A decision will then be made there on the further course of action. In principle, only those persons in the company have access to your data who require this for the proper conduct of our application process. Legal basis: Establishment of an employment relationship, § 26 BDSG and after completion of the application process in case of rejection to safeguard legitimate interests, Art. 6 para. 1 Sentence 1 lit. f) DSGVO (defense against claims), if applicable, if consent granted, Art. 6 para. 1 Sentence 1 lit. a) GDPR

Legal basis: In the context of the balancing of interests to safeguard legitimate interests, Art. 6 para. 1 Sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR.
Who gets my data?
Within the company, access to your data is granted to those departments that need it to fulfill our contractual and legal obligations.
Processors used by us (Art. 28 DSGVO) may also receive data for the above-mentioned purposes. These are companies in the categories of IT services, printing services, telecommunications, debt collection, consulting and advisory services, and sales and marketing. Where we use processors to provide our services, we take appropriate legal precautions and corresponding technical and organizational measures to ensure the protection of personal data in accordance with the relevant legal requirements.
Data is only passed on to third parties who are not order processors within the framework of legal requirements. We only pass on user data to third parties if this is necessary, for example, on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 Sentence 1 lit. b) DSGVO for contractual purposes or on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to. Art. 6 par. 1 Sentence 1 lit. f) DSGVO is necessary for the economic and effective operation of our business or you have consented to the transfer of data. In the case of purely informational use of the website, we do not pass on any data to third parties.
How long will my data be stored?
For security reasons (e.g. to clarify acts of abuse or fraud), log file information is stored for a maximum of seven days and then deleted (see point 2 above). Data whose further retention is required for evidentiary purposes is exempt from deletion until final clarification of the respective incident.
As far as necessary, we process and store your personal data for the duration of our business relationship, which also includes, for example, the initiation of a contract via contact form or by e-mail.
Applicant data will be deleted after 6 months in the event of rejection. In the event that you have agreed to further storage of your personal data, we will transfer your data to our applicant pool.

Finally, the storage period is also assessed according to the statutory limitation periods, which, for example, according to Sections 195 et seq. of the German Civil Code (BGB), are generally 3 years, but in certain cases can be up to thirty years, with the regular limitation period being three years.
Is data transferred to a third country or to an international organization?
The data provided will be processed within the European Union as well as in the USA. Please note that we have agreed to EU standard data protection clauses with recipients of your data for countries without a Commission adequacy decision under Article 45 GDPR, as is the case with the USA (such as Google, Salesforce, Adobe).
Note: The protection of personal data in the USA does not correspond to the level of data protection required by the EU. In particular, there is a lack of enforceable rights that safeguard the protection of your data against access by government agencies. Thus, there is a risk that these government agencies may access the personal data without the data transmitter or the recipient being able to effectively prevent this.
What data protection rights do I have?
Every data subject has the right to information according to Art. 15 DSGVO (i.e. you have the right to request information about your personal data stored by us at any time); the right to rectification according to Art. 16 DSGVO (i.e. in the event that your personal data is inaccurate or incomplete, you may request that it be corrected); the right to erasure under Art. 17 GDPR and the right to restriction of processing under Art. 18 GDPR (i.e. you may have the right to request the erasure or (i.e. you may have the right to request the erasure or restriction of the processing of your personal data if, for example, there is no longer a legitimate business purpose for such processing and legal retention obligations do not require the continued storage); the right to data portability under Art. 20 DSGVO (i.e. you may have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance). Furthermore, you can revoke consents, in principle with effect for the future. In addition, there is a right of appeal to a data protection supervisory authority (Art. 77 DSGVO in conjunction with § 19 BDSG).

With the following information, we inform you about our newsletter as well as the registration, dispatch and evaluation procedure and inform you about your rights of objection. If you subscribe to our newsletter, you agree to receive the newsletter and the described procedures.
Newsletter content: We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with promotional information (hereinafter “newsletter”) only on the basis of the consent of the recipients or on the basis of a legal permission. Insofar as we specifically describe individual newsletters as part of the registration process, this description is decisive for the consent of a newsletter subscriber. If there is no separate description, you will receive information about our products, offers and promotions as well as information about our company in our newsletters.
Double-Opt-In: The registration for our newsletter takes place in the so-called double-opt-in process. I.e. after subscribing to the newsletter we will send you an email asking you to confirm your subscription. This confirmation serves to ensure that only persons who also have access to the specified e-mail address subscribe to our newsletter. We log the registrations to the newsletter in order to be able to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the login and confirmation time, as well as the IP address. Likewise, changes to your data stored with the newsletter service provider are logged.
According to its own information, the newsletter service provider uses the data in pseudonymous form, i.e. without assignment to a user, to optimize or improve its own services. However, the newsletter service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them itself or to pass them on to third parties.
To subscribe to the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide your e-mail address.
The newsletters contain a so-called web beacon, i.e. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the server of the newsletter service provider when the newsletter is opened. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and the time of the retrieval are initially collected. This information is used for the technical improvement of the services based on the technical data or the target groups and your reading behavior based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined with the help of the IP address) or the access times. Statistical surveys also include determining whether newsletters are opened, when they are opened, and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our intention nor that of the shipping service provider to monitor individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.
The dispatch of the newsletter and the measurement of success are based on the consent of the recipients in accordance with. Art. 6 par. 1 Sentence 1 lit. a), Art. 7 DSGVO in conjunction with § 7 para. 2 No. 3 UWG or on the basis of the statutory permission pursuant to § 2 No. 3 UWG. § 7 para. 3 UWG.
The logging of the registration process takes place on the basis of our legitimate interests in accordance with. Art. 6 par. 1 Sentence 1 lit. f) DSGVO and serves as proof of consent to receive the newsletter. You can unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter. If users have only subscribed to the newsletter and cancelled this subscription, their personal data will be deleted.
