4. Recording of data on this website


Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in the Internet browser or the Internet browser on the user’s computer system. When a user visits a website, a cookie may be stored on the user’s operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic string that allows the browser to be uniquely identified when the website is reopened.

We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. Some elements of our website require that the calling browser can also be identified after a page change (technically necessary cookies).

The following data is stored and transmitted in the cookies:

  • language settings

In addition, we use cookies on our website that allow an analysis of users’ browsing behavior (technically unnecessary cookies)

In this way, the following data can be transmitted:

  • Frequency of page views

  • Anonymized usage data for generating statistics

When you visit our website, you are informed about the use of cookies, and your consent to the processing of the personal data used in this context is obtained. In this context, there is also a reference to this privacy policy.

The purpose of using technically necessary cookies is to facilitate the use of websites for users. Some features of our website cannot be offered without the use of cookies. For these, it is necessary that the user is recognized by an ID even after a page break. We require cookies for the following applications:

  • Transfer of language settings

The use of the analysis cookies is for the purpose of improving the quality of our website and its contents for the user. Through the analysis of cookies, we learn how the website is used so we can constantly optimize our offer and the user experience.

Server log files

The provider of this website and its pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser communicates to us automatically. The information comprises:

  • The type and version of browser used
  • The used operating system
  • Referrer URL
  • The hostname of the accessing computer
  • The time of the server inquiry
  • The IP address

This data is not merged with other data sources.

This data is recorded on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The operator of the website has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free depiction and the optimization of the operator’s website. In order to achieve this, server log files must be recorded.

Contact form

If you submit inquiries to us via our contact form, the information provided in the contact form as well as any contact information provided therein will be stored by us in order to handle your inquiry and in the event that we have further questions. We will not share this information without your consent.

The processing of these data is based on Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR, if your request is related to the execution of a contract or if it is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR) or on your agreement (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR) if this has been requested; the consent can be revoked at any time.

The information you have entered into the contact form shall remain with us until you ask us to eradicate the data, revoke your consent to the archiving of data or if the purpose for which the information is being archived no longer exists (e.g., after we have concluded our response to your inquiry). This shall be without prejudice to any mandatory legal provisions, in particular retention periods.

Request by e-mail, telephone, or fax

If you contact us by e-mail, telephone, or fax, your request, including all resulting personal data (name, request) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not pass these data on without your consent.

These data are processed on the basis of Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR if your inquiry is related to the fulfillment of a contract or is required for the performance of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the data are processed on the basis of our legitimate interest in the effective handling of inquiries submitted to us (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR) or on the basis of your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR) if it has been obtained; the consent can be revoked at any time.

The data sent by you to us via contact requests remain with us until you request us to delete, or revoke your consent to the storage or the purpose for the data storage lapses (e.g. after completion of your request). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.


5. Plug-ins and Tools


This site uses MyFonts. MyFonts provides fonts that are loaded onto your browser when you access our website, to warrant the provision of a uniform font in the depiction of the website. The provider is Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc., 600 Unicorn Park Drive, Woburn, Massachusetts 01801, USA.

To be able to ensure compliance with the licensing terms and conditions and to monitor the number of monthly site visits, MyFonts transfers your IP address along with the URL of our website and our contract data to its servers in the United States. According to Monotype, your IP address will be anonymized immediately after the transfer so that any affiliations with individuals are no longer possible (anonymization).

For details please consult Monotype’s data privacy policy: https://www.monotype.com/de/rechtshinweise/datenschutzrichtlinie/datenschutzrichtlinie-zum-tracking-von-webschriften.


The tracking measures listed below and used by us are based on para. 1 sentence 1 letter f of the DSGVO. The tracking measures we use are designed to ensure that our website is fit for purpose and can undergo continuous improvement. On the other hand, we use tracking measures to record the statistics about the use of our website and to evaluate the improvement of our offering for you. These interests are regarded as justified in the sense of the regulation named above.

The relevant data processing purposes and data categories are shown in the various tracking tools.

Google Analytics

For the purposes of ensuring that our website is fit for purpose and can undergo continuous improvement, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter known as “Google”). Pseudonymized user profiles are created in this respect and cookies (see No. 4) are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website such as

  • Browser type/version,
  • The operating system used,
  • Referrer URL (the site you visited previously),
  • Host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
  • Time of the server query,

is transferred to a Google server in the USA where it is saved. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activities, and to provide other services linked to website use and internet use for the purposes of market research and ensuring that these websites are fit for use. This information may also be transferred to third parties if this is required by law or if the third parties have been engaged to process the data. In no circumstances will your IP address be combined with other data by Google. The IP addresses are anonymized so that they cannot be identified (IP masking).

You may refuse the installation of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser software, however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

You may also prevent the data generated by the cookie and relate to your website use (including your IP address) and this data being processed by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).

As an alternative to the browser add-on, particularly for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent recording by Google Analytics by clicking on this link. This sets an opt-out cookie which prevents the future recording of your data when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and will be filed on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you will have to reset the opt-out cookie.

Further information about data protection relating to Google Analytics is available in the Google Analytics help section


Google Adwords conversion tracking

We also use Google conversion tracking to record the statistics relating to the use of our website and to improve our website for you. This means that Google Adwords sets a cookie (see number 5) on your computer if you navigated to our website from a Google advertisement.

These cookies become invalid after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages on the website of the Adwords customer and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer can detect that the user has clicked on the advertisement and has been forwarded to this page.

Each Adwords customer receives a different cookie. This means that cookies cannot be traced using the websites of Adwords customers. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have decided to use conversion tracking. Adwords customers are notified of the total number of users who have clicked on the advertisement and have been forwarded to the page featuring a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information which enables them to identify users in person.

If you do not wish to partake in the tracking process, you can also refuse the setting of a cookie required for this purpose – for example, using a browser setting that generally disables the automatic setting of cookies. You can also disable cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser so that cookies from the domain “www.googleadservices.com” are blocked. Google’s privacy policy for conversion tracking can be found here: (https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html)


6. Custom Services

Handling applicant data

We offer website visitors the opportunity to submit job applications to us (e.g., via e-mail, via postal services on by submitting the online job application form). Below, we will brief you on the scope, purpose and use of the personal data collected from you in conjunction with the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing, and use of your data will occur in compliance with the applicable data privacy rights and all other statutory provisions and that your data will always be treated as strictly confidential.

Scope and purpose of the collection of data

If you submit a job application to us, we will process any affiliated personal data (e.g., contact and communications data, application documents, notes taken during job interviews, etc.), if they are required to make a decision concerning the establishment or an employment relationship. The legal grounds for the aforementioned are § 26 BDSG according to German Law (Negotiation of an Employment Relationship), Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR (General Contract Negotiations) and – provided you have given us your consent – Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. You may revoke any consent given at any time. Within our company, your personal data will only be shared with individuals who are involved in the processing of your job application.

If your job application should result in your recruitment, the data you have submitted will be archived on the grounds of § 26 BDSG and Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship in our data processing system.

Data Archiving Period

If we are unable to make you a job offer or you reject a job offer or withdraw your application, we reserve the right to retain the data you have submitted on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR) for up to 6 months from the end of the application procedure (rejection or withdrawal of the application). Afterwards the data will be deleted, and the physical application documents will be destroyed. The storage serves in particular as evidence in the event of a legal dispute. If it is evident that the data will be required after the expiry of the 6-month period (e.g., due to an impending or pending legal dispute), deletion will only take place when the purpose for further storage no longer applies.

Longer storage may also take place if you have given your agreement (Article 6(1)(a) GDPR) or if statutory data retention requirements preclude the deletion.

Admission to the applicant pool

If we do not make you a job offer, you may be able to join our applicant pool. In case of admission, all documents and information from the application will be transferred to the applicant pool in order to contact you in case of suitable vacancies.

Admission to the applicant pool is based exclusively on your express agreement (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR). The submission agreement is voluntary and has no relation to the ongoing application procedure. The affected person can revoke his agreement at any time. In this case, the data from the applicant pool will be irrevocably deleted, provided there are no legal reasons for storage.

The data from the applicant pool will be irrevocably deleted no later than two years after consent has been granted.


7. Social Media

We are represented with our own page on social media in order to stay in contact with our customers and to publish news from our company.

We would like to point out that user data may be processed outside the European Union. This can result in risks for the users, as it could, for example, make it more difficult to enforce the rights of the users. With regard to US providers that are certified under the Privacy Shield, we would like to point out that by doing so they commit themselves to comply with EU data protection standards.

In addition, user data is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, user profiles can be created on the basis of user behavior and the resulting interests of users. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the user’s computer in which the user’s usage behavior and interests are stored. Furthermore, data can also be stored in the user profiles independently of the devices used by the users (in particular if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them).

The processing of the personal data of the users takes place on the basis of our legitimate interests in effective information of the users and communication with the users in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f. DSGVO. If the users are asked by the respective providers for their consent to data processing (i.e. declare their consent e.g. by ticking a checkbox or confirming a button), the legal basis for processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a., Art. 7 DSGVO.

For a detailed description of the respective processing operations and the opt-out options, please refer to the following linked information provided by the providers.

Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be asserted most effectively with the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can directly take appropriate measures and give information. Should you nevertheless need help, you can contact us.

If choose not to click on the icon, no data will be exchanged between you and the social media button providers.
