Security and protection of your personal data

We consider it our primary task to protect the confidentiality of the personal data you provide and to protect it from unauthorised access. We therefore apply the utmost care and state-of-the-art security standards to ensure maximum protection of your personal data.

As a company under private law, we are subject to the provisions of the European Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). We have taken technical and organisational measures to ensure that the data protection regulations are observed both by us and by our external service providers.

Definitions

The German legislator requires personal data to be processed in a lawful manner, in good faith and in a manner that is comprehensible to the data subject ("lawfulness, processing in good faith, transparency"). In order to ensure this, we are hereby informing you about the individual legal definitions which are also used in this Privacy Statement:

1. Personal data
"Personal data" refers to any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as "data subject"). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by assignment to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more special characteristics which express the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

2. Processing
"Processing" refers to any operation carried out, with or without the aid of automated procedures, or any such series of operations relating to personal data, such as the acquisition, collection, organisation, arrangement, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or any other form of provision, comparison or linking, restriction, erasure or destruction.

3. Restriction of processing
"Restriction on processing" refers to the marking of stored personal data with the aim of restricting their future processing.

4. Profiling
"Profiling" refers to any automated processing of personal data that evaluates certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to the work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or relocation of that natural person.

5. Pseudonymisation
"Pseudonymisation" refers to the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data cannot be attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

6. File system
"File system" refers to any structured collection of personal data accessible according to specific criteria, whether centralised, decentralised, functional or geographical.

7. Controller
"Controller" refers to a natural or legal person, authority, institution, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data. If the purposes and means of such processing are specified by Union law or the law of the Member States, the controller or certain criteria for his appointment may be laid down in accordance with Union law or the law of the Member States.

8. Processor
"Processor" refers to a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body processing personal data on behalf of the controller.

9. Recipient
"Recipient" refers to a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body to which personal data is disclosed, whether or not it is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data under Union law or the law of the Member States under a particular investigation mandate shall not be considered recipients; the processing of such data by the said authorities shall be carried out in accordance with the applicable data protection rules in accordance with the purposes of the processing.

10. Third party
"Third party" refers to a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and persons authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.

11. Consent
"Consent" by the data subject refers to any voluntary declaration of intent in a specific case, in an informed and unequivocal manner, in the form of a declaration or other clear affirmative act with which the data subject indicates that he or she agrees to the processing of personal data concerning him or her.

Legality of processing

The processing of personal data is only legal if there is a legal ground for the processing. Under Article 6 paragraph 1 points (a–f) GDPR, the legal basis for processing may in particular be:
a.    the data subject has given his/her consent to the processing of his/her personal data for one or more specific purposes;
b.    processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures taken at the request of the data subject;
c.    processing is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which the controller is subject;
d.    processing is necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person;
e.    processing is necessary for the performance of a task of the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
f.    processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of the controller or a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require the protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child.

b.     the categories of personal data which are processed;
c.     the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries or at international organisations;

We will provide a copy of the personal data that are the subject of processing. We may charge an appropriate fee based on administrative costs for additional copies requested by you.

Where you submit the application electronically, the information must be provided in a standard electronic format, except where otherwise specified. The right to obtain a copy in accordance with Section 3 must not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.

(4) Right to rectification   
You have the right to obtain from us without undue delay the rectification of incorrect personal data concerning you. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, you have the right to obtain the completion of incomplete personal data – also by means of a supplementary declaration.

(5) Right to erasure ("right to be forgotten")
You have the right to obtain from the controller without undue delay the erasure of personal data relating to you, and we are obliged to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following reasons applies:
a.    The personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
b.    The data subject withdraws his/her consent on which processing was based in accordance with Article 6 paragraph 1 point (a) or Article 9 paragraph 2 point (a) GDPR and there is no other legal ground for processing.
c.    The data subject opposes processing according to Article 21 paragraph 1 GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for processing, or the data subject opposes processing under Article 21 paragraph 2 GDPR.
d.    The personal data have been processed unlawfully.
e.    The erasure of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under Union law or the laws of the Member States to which the controller is subject.
f.    The personal data have been collected in relation to information society services provided in accordance with Article 8 paragraph 1 GDPR.

Where the controller has made the personal data public and is obliged to erase them in accordance with paragraph 1, the controller shall take appropriate measures including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and implementation costs, to inform processors who process the personal data that a data subject has instructed them to erase all links to such personal data or copies or replications of such personal data.

The right to erasure ("right to be forgotten") does not apply where processing is necessary:
–    to exercise freedom of expression and information;
–    for the performance of a legal obligation required for processing under the laws of the Union or of the Member States to which the controller is subject, or for the performance of a task in the public interest, or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
–    for reasons of public interest in the field of public health in accordance with Article 9 paragraph 2 points (h+i) and Article 9 paragraph 3 GDPR;
–    for archiving purposes of public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes as referred to in Article 89 paragraph 1 GDPR, where the right referred to in paragraph 1 is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievements of purposes of such processing, or
–    for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

(6) Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to obtain from us the restriction of processing of your personal data where one of the following conditions applies:
a. the accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period which enables the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
b. the processing is unlawful and the data subject objects to the erasure of personal data and requests instead the restriction of processing of personal data;
c. the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are needed by the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defence of a legal claim; or
d. the data subject has lodged an objection against the processing referred to in Article 21 paragraph 1 GDPR, until such time as it has been established whether the data subject's justified grounds override those of the data subject.

Where processing has been restricted in accordance with the conditions set out above, such personal data shall only be processed – except for its storage – with the consent of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise or defence or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or on grounds of an important public interest of the Union or a Member State.

In order to exercise the right to restrict processing, the data subject may contact us at any time using the contact details provided above.

(7) Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, that you have provided to us, in a structured, current and machine-readable format, and you have the right to transmit this data to another controller without interference by the controller to whom the personal data was provided, provided that:
a.    processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 point a or Article 9 paragraph 2 point (a) or on a contract pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 point (b) GDPR; and
b.    processing is carried out using automated methods.

When exercising the right to data transferability under paragraph 1, you have the right to have the personal data transferred directly from one controller to another controller when technically feasible. The exercise of the right to data portability does not affect the right to erasure ("right to be forgotten"). This right shall not apply to processing necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

(8) Right of objection
You have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you according to Article 6 paragraph 1 point (e) or (f) GDPR for reasons arising from your particular situation, including profiling based on these provisions. The controller shall no longer process the personal data unless he can demonstrate compelling legitimate reasons for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defence of a legal claim.

Where personal data are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such purposes; this applies also to profiling, insofar as it is associated with such direct marketing. If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes.

In connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, you may exercise your right of objection by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
You have the right to object to the processing of personal data concerning you for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89 paragraph 1 GDPR, for reasons arising from your particular situation, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest.

You can exercise your right of objection at any time by contacting the respective processor.

(9) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processing - including profiling - that has legal effect against you or significantly impairs you in a similar manner. This does not apply where the decision:
a.    is necessary for entering into or the performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller;
b.    is admissible by law of the Union or of the Member States to which the controller is subject and that law contains appropriate measures to safeguard the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject; or
c.    with the express consent of the data subject.
The controller shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person by the controller, to state his or her own position and to challenge the decision.

The data subject may exercise this right at any time by contacting the respective controller.

(10) Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
Where you hold that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes this regulation, you have the additional right, without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, workplace or the place of suspected infringement.

(11) Right to effective judicial recourse
Without prejudice to any available administrative or extrajudicial remedy, including the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority under Article 77 GDPR, you shall have the right to an effective judicial remedy if you consider that your rights under this regulation have been infringed as a result of processing of your personal data that is incompatible with  this regulation.

Use of Google Analytics

(1)    This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. "("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer to help the website analyse website usage. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will truncate your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with further services associated with website and internet use.

(2)    The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not associated with other data stored by Google.

(3)    You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser; however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie, associating it with your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set that prevents the collection of your data on future visits to this website:

<a href=“javascript:gaOptout()“>Disable Google Analytics </a>


(4)    This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". As a result, IP addresses are processed in a truncated form, so that an association with a particular person can be ruled out. Where the data collected about you is personal, it will be excluded immediately and the personal data will be erased without undue delay.

(5)    We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. By doing so, we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has agreed to the terms of the EU-US Privacy Shield, www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal ground for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 point (f) GDPR.

(6)    Third-party information: Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001. Terms of Use: www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html;   information on data protection: www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/learn/privacy.html, as well as the privacy policy: www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

(7)    This website also uses Google Analytics for inter-device analysis of traffic that is carried out via a user ID. You can deactivate the inter-device analysis of your usage in your customer account under "My data", "Personal data".

Google Tag Manager

This website also uses the Google Tag Manager. Google Tag Manager is a solution that allows marketers to manage website tags through a single interface. The tool Tag Manager itself (which implements the tags) is a cookieless domain. The tool triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. Where settings have been disabled at domain or cookie level, these settings will apply to all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.

Use of social media plug-ins

(1)    We currently use the following social media plug-ins: [Facebook, Twitter, Instagram]. We use the so-called double click procedure. This means that personal data is not passed on initially to the providers of the plug-ins when you visit our site. You can recognise the provider of the plug-in by the marking on the box above its first letter or the logo. By providing this button, we allow you to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in. The provider of the plug-in will only receive information that you have accessed the relevant page on our online presence if you click on and therefore enable the marked field. The data set out in Section 3 of this Privacy Statement will also be transmitted. Facebook and Xing immediately anonymise the IP address after collection, at least according to information from the respective provider in Germany. By enabling the plug-in, personal data is transferred from you to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (for US providers in the USA). Given that the plug-in provider mainly uses cookies to collect data, we recommend that you adjust your browser’s security settings to delete all cookies before clicking on the shaded box.

(2)    We have no influence on the data collection and data processing. We are also unaware of the full extent of data collection, the purposes of processing and the storage periods. Moreover, we have no information on the erasure of data collected by the plug-in provider.

(3)    The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as user profiles and uses these for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of its website. In particular, analysis takes place (also for users that are not logged in) for the presentation of needs-based advertising and in order to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right of objection to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right. By embedding the plug-ins, we allow you to interact with social networks and other users, so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal ground for the use of the plug-ins is Art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 point (f) GDPR.

(4)    The data is passed on regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in. If you are logged in with the plug-in provider, your data collected with us will be directly associated with your existing account with the plug-in provider. For instance, when you click on the enabled button and link the page, the plug-in provider also stores this information in your user account and shares it publicly with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, especially before enabling the button, as this will prevent the association of information with your profile with the plug-in provider.

(5)     Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider can be found in the privacy policies of these providers as shown below. They will also provide you with further information about your rights in this regard and of setting options to protect your privacy.
