II. Data Protection Officer
III. General information on data processing
1. Scope of the processing of personal data
As a matter of principle, we only process the personal data of our users to the extent that this is necessary for the provision of a functional website, as well as our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users is typically only carried out with the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases where obtaining prior consent is not possible for factual reasons, and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.
2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations involving personal data, Article 6 (1) lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.
When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.
In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, Art. 6 (1) lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh said interest, Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.
3. Data deletion and storage period
The personal data of the data subject shall be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. In addition, storage may take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the data controller is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a necessity for the continued storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.
IV. Provision of the website and creation of log files
1. Description and scope of data processing
Every time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer. The following data is collected:
(1) Information about the browser type and version used
(2) The user’s operating system
(3) The user’s Internet service provider
(4) The user’s IP address
(5) The date and time of access
(6) Websites from which the user’s system accesses our website
(7) Websites that are accessed by the user’s system via our website
The data is also stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.
2. Legal basis for the data processing
The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the log files is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.
3. Purpose of data processing
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the user’s IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session. The storage in log files is done to ensure the website’s functionality. In addition, we use the data to optimise the website, and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.
The aforementioned purposes are also our legitimate interest in data processing according to Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.
4. Duration of storage
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for making the website available, this is the case when the respective session has ended. In the case of storage of data in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Storage beyond this point in time is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or pseudonymised, so that an assignment to the respective client is no longer possible.
5. Possibility to register your objection, and data removal
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility for the user to object.
a) Description and scope of data processing
We use so-called session cookies to make our website more user-friendly. Some elements of our website require that the accessing browser can be identified even after a page change.
Google is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement and thereby offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).
Google will use this information on our behalf for the purpose of evaluating your use of our website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Pseudonymous user profiles can be created from the processed data.
We only use Google Analytics with IP anonymisation activated. This means that the user’s IP address is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
The IP address transmitted by the user’s browser is not merged with other data from Google. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly; users can also prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to their use of the online offer to Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
The personal data of the users will be deleted or anonymised after 14 months.
b) Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies or Google Analytics is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.
c) Purpose of data processing
The analysis cookies are used for the purpose of improving the quality of our website and its content. Through the analysis cookies, we learn how the website is used, and can thus constantly optimise our offer.
The aforementioned purposes also constitute our legitimate interest in processing the personal data pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.
d) Duration of storage, possibility of objection and removal
VI. E-mail contact in the applicant area
1. Description and scope of data processing
The data controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application procedure. The processing may also be carried out electronically. This is the case, in particular, if an applicant sends relevant application documents to the data controller by electronic means, for example, by e-mail.
On our website, an e-mail address is provided in the applicant area for this purpose, which can be used for electronic contact or application. In the event of contact being established, the user’s personal data transmitted by e-mail will be stored. In this context, the data will not be passed on to third parties. The data is used exclusively for processing the conversation. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the data controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application files shall be deleted automatically after notification of the rejection, unless otherwise justified by the legitimate interests of the data controller. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
2. Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. If the establishment of e-mail contact facilitates the conclusion of a contract (e.g. an employment contract), the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR.
3. Purpose of data processing
In the case of contact by e-mail, this also constitutes the necessary legitimate interest in processing the data.
4. Duration of storage
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. For personal data sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation has ended when it is clear from the circumstances that the matter in question (e.g. application procedure for an open, advertised position) has been conclusively clarified.
5. Possibility of objection and removal
The user has the possibility to revoke his consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the user contacts us by e-mail, he can object to the storage of his personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation with the user cannot be continued.
Users may also contact our designated Data Protection Officer in connection with this objection and removal option using the contact details above.
VII. Rights of the data subject
If your personal data is processed, you are a data subject within the meaning of the GDPR and you are entitled to the following rights vis-à-vis us as the website operator and thus the responsible party:
1. Right of disclosure
You may request confirmation from the data controller as to whether personal data relating to you is being processed by us.
If such processing is taking place, you can request information from the data controller about the following:
(1) the purposes for which the personal data are processed;
(2) the categories of personal data which are processed;
(3) the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data relating to you have been or will be disclosed.
(4) the envisaged duration of the storage of the personal data concerning you or, if specific information on this is not possible, criteria for determining the storage period;
(5) the existence of a right to rectification or erasure of the personal data concerning you, a right to restriction of processing by the data controller or a right to object to such processing;
(6) the existence of a right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority;
(7) any available information on the origin of the data if the personal data are not collected from the data subject;
(8) the existence of automated decision-making – including profiling – pursuant to Art. 22 (1) and (4) of the GDPR and, at least in these cases, meaningful information about the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for the data subject.
You have the right to request information on whether personal data concerning you is transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context, you may request to be informed about the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Article 46 of the GDPR in connection with the transfer.
2. Right to rectification
You have a right to rectification and/or completion vis-à-vis the data controller if the personal data processed concerning you is inaccurate or incomplete. The person responsible shall make the correction without delay.
3. Right to the restriction of processing
You may request the restriction of the processing of personal data concerning you under the following conditions:
(1) you contest the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period enabling the data controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
(2) the processing is unlawful, and you object to the erasure of the personal data and request instead the restriction of the use of the personal data;
(3) the data controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing but you need this for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; or
(4) you object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the data controller outweigh your reasons.
Where the processing of personal data relating to you has been restricted, that data may be processed, with the exception of its storage, only 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 substantial public interest of the Union or of a Member State.
If the restriction of processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the data controller before the restriction is lifted.
4. Right to erasure
a) Obligation to erase
You may request that the data controller erase the personal data concerning you without delay, and the data controller is obliged to erase this data without delay, if one of the following reasons applies:
(1) The personal data concerning you is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
(2) You withdraw your consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a or Art. 9 (2) lit. a GDPR, and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
(3) You object to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) GDPR, and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or you object to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (2) GDPR.
(4) The personal data concerning you has been processed unlawfully.
(5) The deletion of personal data concerning you is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the data controller is subject.
(6) The personal data concerning you was collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Art. 8 (1) GDPR.
b) Information to third parties
If the data controller has made the personal data concerning you public and is obligated to erase it pursuant to Article 17 (1) GDPR, it shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, with due regard to the available technology and the cost of implementation, to inform data controllers which process the personal data that you, as the data subject, have requested that they erase all links to or copies or replications of that personal data.
The right to erasure does not exist insofar as processing is necessary
(1) for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information;
(2) for compliance with a statutory obligation which requires processing under Union or Member State law to which the data controller is subject, or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the data controller;
(3) for reasons of public interest in the field of public health pursuant to Art. 9 (2) lit. h and i and Art. 9 (3) GDPR;
(4) for archiving purposes that are in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 (1) GDPR, insofar as the right referred to in Section a) is likely to render impossible (or seriously prejudice) the achievement of the purposes of such processing; or
(5) for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
5. Right to information
If you have asserted the right to the rectification, erasure or restriction of processing vis-a-vis the data controller, the data controller is obligated to inform all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you has been disclosed of this rectification or erasure of the data or restriction of processing, unless this proves impossible, or involves a disproportionate effort.
You have the right to be informed of these recipients by the data controller.
6. Right to data portability
You have the right to obtain the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the data controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to transfer this data to another data controller without hindrance by the data controller to whom the personal data was provided, assuming that
(1) the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR or Art. 9 (2) lit. a GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR and
(2) the processing is carried out with the aid of automated processes.
In exercising this right, you also have the right to ensure that the personal data concerning you be transferred directly from one data controller to another data controller, where this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.
The right to data portability shall not apply to processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the data controller.
7. Right of objection
You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data relating to you which is carried out on the basis of Article 6 (1) lit. e or f GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The data controller shall no longer process the personal data concerning you unless it can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If the personal data concerning you is processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.
If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes.
You have the possibility, in connection with the use of information society services – notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC – to exercise your right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
8. Right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law
You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The revocation of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.
9. Automated decision-making on a case-by-case basis – including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing – including profiling – which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision
(1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the data controller,
(2) is permitted by Union or Member State law to which the data controller is subject, and that law contains adequate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, or
(3) is made with your express consent.
However, these decisions must not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 (1) GDPR, unless Art. 9 (2) lit.a or g GDPR applies, and appropriate measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.
With regard to the instances referred to in (1) and (3), the data controller shall take reasonable steps to safeguard your rights, freedoms and your legitimate interests, including at least the right of intervention of a person on the part of the data controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.
10. Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular, in the Member State of your residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR.
The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 GDPR.
