II. General information on data processing
1. Scope of processing personal data
We collect and use personal data of our users only to the extent necessary in order to provide a functional website, for the provision of our contents and services. Personal data is only collected and used with the consent of our users. An exception hereto is made if a prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and the processing of data is permitted by law. Types of processed data are as follows:
– inventory data (e.g., names, addresses);
– contact details (e.g., e-mail, phone numbers);
– content data (e.g., text entries, photographs, videos);
– usage data (e.g., visited websites, interest in contents, access times);
– meta-/communications data (e.g., device information, IP-addresses).
2. Legal basis for processing personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the person concerned for processing his / her personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the legal basis. Whereas for the processing of personal data which is necessary for the performance of a contract of the respective person concerned, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are required while carrying out pre-contractual actions. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as legal basis if the processing of personal data is required to fulfill a legal obligation of our company. Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfill a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and if interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the person concerned do not prevail, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR is the legal basis for processing.
3. Data deletion and storage duration
The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage lapses. Such storage also may be carried out if required by European or further national legislation in EU regulations, laws or other regulations that address the responsible operator. Blocking or deletion of the stored personal data is carried out when the storage period prescribed by the legislation mentioned expires, unless there is a need for further storage of with respect to the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract.
III. Provision of website und creation of log files
1. Description and scope of data processing
When accessing our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer.
The following data hereby will be collected for a limited time:
(1) information on the type and version of browser used;
(2) the operating system of the user;
(3) the internet service provider of the user;
(4) the IP-address of the user
(5) date and time of access;
(6) websites from which the system of the user is forwarded to our website;
(7) visited website;
(8) amount of data sent in bytes.
Such data is stored in the log files of our system. It is only necessary for the analysis of a possible disruption and will be deleted at the latest within seven days. The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to allow delivery of the website to the computer of the user. To do this, the user’s IP address must be saved for the duration of the session. Storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data is used to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. Personal data is not evaluated for marketing purposes in this context and no conclusions about the respective person are drawn. This corresponds to our legitimate interest in the processing of data according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR: The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is essential for the operation of the website. Consequently, users can not disagree.
IV. Data protection in applications and application procedures
We collect and process the personal data of ou applicants for the purpose of processing the application process. The processing can also be done electronically, especially if an applicant submits his / her application documents electronically, e.g. by e-mail. If we conclude a contract of employment with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of the employment relationship in compliance with the legal requirements. If no employment contract is concluded, the application documents will be automatically deleted after notification of the rejection decision, provided that the deletion does not conflict with any other legitimate interests of the responsible operator. Other legitimate interest in this sense can be, for example, a burden of proof in a procedure under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
