3. Collection of personal data for information use

3.1 If you only use the website for information purposes, i.e. if you do not provide us with any other information, we only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. If you would like to view our website, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary for us to display our website to you and to ensure stability and security (the legal basis is Article 6 (1f) GDPR):

  • IP address
  • Date and time of the request
  • Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • Content of the request (specific page)
  • Access status / HTTP status code
  • Volume of data transferred in each case
  • Website from which the request came
  • Browser
  • Operating system and interface
  • Language and version of the browser software.


The IP address, at least for the short term, is necessary for technical reasons in connection with the mode of operation of the Internet. However, the IP addresses are pseudonymized before any processing: the last part of the IP address is exchanged for this purpose. The data will only be processed further in this pseudonymized form. The original IP addresses are not stored or processed. Conclusions on the original IP addresses or an assignment to you as a person are therefore not possible.

3.2 In addition to the data mentioned above, no cookies are stored on your computer when you use our website.

3.3 The information we store is stored separately from any other data that we may provide.

4.  Additional functions and offers on our website


4.1 In addition to the use of our website purely for information purposes, we offer various services that you can use if you are interested. To do this, it is usually necessary for you to provide additional personal data, which we use to provide the respective service.


4.2 When you contact us by e-mail, we will save your e-mail address and, if you provide this, your name in order to answer your specific request. We delete the data that arises in this context when the respective request has been finally processed, or limit the processing if there are statutory retention requirements. The legal basis for processing the data is Article 6 (1b) GDPR.

5.  Data protection in applications and in the application process as well as the legal basis for data processing

5.1 If you make use of the option offered to apply for a position, by e-mail or by other means (e.g. by post), we will process the personal data you have transmitted by these means and / or via any PDF attachments, i.e. your contact details as well as your qualification-related information (if you provide us with a résumé and certificates in connection with your application), to the extent that this is necessary to carry out the application process. After the data contained in the PDF attachments has been transmitted, it is sent directly to the server of our external service provider via an encrypted connection. All data is encrypted. The legal basis for processing is Section 26 BDSG in conjunction with Article 88 GDPR.

5.2 The personal data collected for the purpose of an application process will be processed for a maximum of three months after the application process has been completed, unless the application has resulted in employment with us or you have given your express consent (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR) and subsequently deleted, provided that deletion does not conflict with any other legitimate interests of the controller. Any other legitimate interest in this sense can be justified in particular by an obligation to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG). In this case, the legal basis for continued processing is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

5.3 There is no automated decision in individual cases within the meaning of Article 22 GDRP, i.e. the decision on your application is not based solely on automated processing.

6.  Objection to or revocation of the processing of your data

6.1 If you have given your consent to the processing of your data, you can revoke this at any time. In this case, please contact our data protection officer (for contact details, see section 1.3 of this data protection declaration), you do not have to observe a particular form. Such a revocation concerns your consent to further processing of your personal data in the future. The legality of the previous processing of your personal data remains unaffected.

6.2 If we base the processing of your personal data on the balancing of interests, you can object to processing. This is the case, in particular, if processing is not necessary to fulfill a contract with you, as indicated by us when describing the functions and offers on our website. When you exercise such an objection, we ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we have done. If your objection is justified, we will examine the situation and either stop or adjust data processing or state our compelling legitimate grounds on the basis of which we will continue processing.

7.  Data protection

We maintain up-to-date technical measures to ensure data protection, in particular to protect your personal data from risks in connection with data transfer and from the risk that third parties may gain knowledge of your data. These are adapted in accordance with changes in the state of the art.
