Information about the use of cookies

  • What personal data is collected and to what extent is it processed?

    We integrate and use cookies on various pages to enable certain functions of our website and to integrate external web services. The so-called "cookies" are small text files that your browser can store on your access device. These text files contain a characteristic string that uniquely identifies the browser when you return to our website. The process of saving a cookie file is also referred to as "setting a cookie". Cookies can be set both by the website itself and by external web services. Cookies are set by our website or external web services in order to maintain the full functionality of our website, to improve the user experience or to pursue the purpose stated with your consent. Cookie technology also allows us to recognise individual visitors by pseudonyms, e.g. a unique or random ID, so that we can provide more personalised services. Details are shown in the table below.

  • Legal basis for the processing of personal data

    Insofar as the cookies are processed on the basis of consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR, this consent is also deemed to be consent within the meaning of Section 25 para. 1 TDDDG for the setting of the cookie on the user's terminal device. Insofar as another legal basis is stated in accordance with the GDPR (e.g. to fulfil a contract or to fulfil legal obligations), the storage or setting is based on an exception in accordance with Section 25 (2) TDDDG. This is the case "if the sole purpose of storing information in the end user's terminal equipment or the sole purpose of accessing information already stored in the end user's terminal equipment is to carry out the transmission of a communication over a public telecommunications network" or "where the storage of information in the end-user's terminal equipment or access to information already stored in the end-user's terminal equipment is strictly necessary to enable the provider of a telemedia service to provide a telemedia service explicitly requested by the user". The relevant legal basis can be found in the cookie table listed later in this section.

  • Purpose of the data processing

    The cookies are set by our website or the external web services in order to maintain the full functionality of our website, to improve the user-friendliness or to pursue the purpose stated with your consent. Cookie technology also allows us to recognise individual visitors by pseudonyms, e.g. an individual or random IDs, so that we can offer more personalised services. Details are provided in the table below.

  • Duration of storage

    Our cookies are stored until they are deleted in your browser or, if they are session cookies, until the session has expired. Details are listed in the following table.

  • Possibility of objection and removal

    You can set your browser according to your wishes so that the setting of cookies is generally prevented. You can then decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept cookies or accept cookies in principle. Cookies can be used for various purposes, e.g. to recognise that your access device is already connected to our website (permanent cookies) or to save recently viewed offers (session cookies). If you have expressly given us permission to process your personal data, you can revoke this consent at any time. Please note that the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation is not affected by this.

Data security and data protection, communication by e-mail

Your personal data is protected by technical and organisational measures during collection, storage and processing so that it is not accessible to third parties. In the case of unencrypted communication by e-mail, we cannot guarantee complete data security on the transmission path to our IT systems, so that we recommend encrypted communication or the postal service for information requiring a high level of confidentiality.

Automatic e-mail archiving

  • Scope of the processing of personal data

    We expressly point out that our mail system has an automated archiving procedure. All incoming and outgoing e-mails are digitally archived in an audit-proof manner.

  • Legal basis for the processing of personal data

    Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR (legal obligation). The legal obligation consists of compliance with tax and commercial law requirements (e.g. §§ 146, 147 AO, §§ 238, 257 HGB).

  • Purpose of the data processing

    The purpose of archiving is to comply with tax law requirements (e.g. §§ 146, 147 AO - obligation to retain e-mails of relevance to tax law) and commercial law requirements (e.g. §§ 238, 257 HGB - obligation to archive business correspondence).

  • Duration of storage

    Our mail communication is stored until the expiry of storage obligations under tax and commercial law. The storage period can be up to 10 years.

  • Possibility of objection and deletion

    You can object to the processing at any time in accordance with Article 21 of the GDPR and request the deletion of data in accordance with Article 17 of the GDPR. You can find out which rights you have and how to exercise them at the bottom of this privacy policy.

  • Dealing with application documents

    If you have any questions regarding our e-mail archiving system, please contact our data protection officer. In addition, we would like to point out that we only consider application documents in PDF file format. Zipped files (WinZip, WinRAR, 7Zip, etc.) are filtered out by our security systems and will not be delivered. We do not consider applications in Word file format and other file formats and delete them unread. Please note that application documents sent by e-mail without encryption may be opened by third parties before they reach our IT systems. We assume that we may also reply to unencrypted application e-mails unencrypted. If you do not wish this, please let us know in your application e-mail.
