The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used

  • Hostname of the accessing computer

  • IP address

SSL or TLS Encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.


The websites use so-called cookies in part. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used to make our offer more user-friendly, effective, and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies.” They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser on your next visit. You can configure your browser to inform you about the placement of cookies, to allow cookies only in specific cases, to exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases, or in general, and to enable the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

Cookies that are necessary for the electronic communication process or for providing certain desired functions (e.g. shopping cart function) are stored based on Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. If other cookies (e.g. cookies for analyzing your browsing behavior) are stored, they will be treated separately in this privacy policy.

5. Applications

We collect and process personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application process. Processing can also take place electronically. This is especially the case when an applicant submits relevant application documents to via email.

If an employment contract is concluded, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of carrying out the employment relationship, while adhering to legal provisions. If no employment is established, the application documents will be deleted (automatically) at the latest six months after the end of the application process, unless deletion contradicts our legitimate interests or you have not explicitly consented to longer storage (applicant pool).

We also ensure that only persons involved in the application process have access to your application documents. The deletion of data is also ensured by us, as described above. The purpose of collecting the requested data is to conduct the application process and make associated hiring decisions.

The legal basis for processing is the decision on the establishment and execution of an employment relationship pursuant to Article 6(1)(b), Article 88 GDPR in conjunction with Section 26 BDSG.
