4. Collecting data on our website

 Cookies

Some websites use the so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on the user's computer via a web browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted after the end of the visit to the site. Other cookies will remain stored on the user's device until they are deleted. These cookies allow us to recognize the user's browser during the next visit.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow their use only in individual cases, accept cookies in specific cases or generally disable them and activate automatic removal of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are disabled, the functionality of this website may be limited.

Cookies, which are necessary to perform the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions that you wish (e.g. shopping basket function), are stored on the basis of Art. 6 clause 1 letter f of the General Regulation on the Protection of Personal Data. The website administrator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technical and optimal provision of its services. While other cookies (e.g. cookies used to analyse user behaviour when browsing websites) are stored, they are treated separately in this declaration on the protection of personal data.

Server log files

The website provider automatically collects and stores information in the so-called server log files that the browser automatically sends to us. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • used operating system
  • Relevant URL
  • The host name of the computer from which the data was accessed
  • Time to generate a server request
  • IP address

This data is not combined with other data sources.

These data are collected on the basis of Art. 6 clause 1 letter f of the General Regulation on the Protection of Personal Data. The website administrator has a legitimate participation in the technical presentation and optimization of his/her website - for this purpose, it is necessary to archive the server's log files.

 Contact form

If you send us an inquiry via the contact form, your data from the inquiry form, along with the contact details provided by you, will be stored by us to process your inquiry and in case of supplementary questions. We do not forward these data without your permission.

The processing of data entered in the contact form is therefore only based on your consent (Article 6 (1) a) of the General regulation on the protection of personal data). This consent can be cancelled at any time. For this purpose, informal e-mail notification is sufficient. The legal compliance of the data processing operations carried out until further notice shall remain unaffected.

The data entered by you in the contact form remains with us until you request their deletion, withdrawal of consent for storage or when the purpose of data storage will cease to apply (e.g. after processing your request for proposal). Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular regarding retention periods - remain unaffected.

Data protection in the case of application submission and in the application process

The data administrator collects and processes personal data of candidates for the purposes of the application procedure. The processing can also be carried out electronically. This applies in particular to cases where the applicant sends relevant application documents electronically, for example via e-mail to the responsible person or via the online form provided on the website. If the data controller enters into a contract of employment with the candidate, the transferred data is stored for the purpose of performing the employment contract while maintaining the statutory provisions. If the data controller has not concluded a contract of employment with the candidate, the application documentation is automatically deleted two months after the notification of the negative decision, unless the removal conflicts with any other legitimate interests of the data controller. Other legitimate interests in this sense include, for example, the obligation to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Law on equal treatment (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz - AGG).
