IV. Information on the processing on and in connection with our website

1) Visiting our website

When you visit our website for information purposes only, i.e. if you do not provide us with any other information, we only process the personal data that your browser transmits to us. These are

  • IP address of your system,
  • The date and time (incl. time zone) of your enquiry,
  • Type, content and protocol version of your enquiry (specific page request),
  • Access status (HTTP status code) of our server,
  • Size of our server response in bytes,
  • the website from which the request comes (so-called "referrer"),
  • your user agent (type, version, operating system used) and
  • the domain you accessed.

We also store this data in log files. 

The aforementioned data is technically necessary for us to display our website, ensure stability and security and optimise our offering.

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, whereby our legitimate interest arises from the purposes mentioned.

We delete this data after seven days at the latest. Any further storage only takes place if the personal data has been deleted or anonymised accordingly; in the case of IP addresses, for example, this is done by shortening them in accordance with data protection regulations.

We use Remind GmbH, Am Alten Stadtpark 37, 44791 Bochum, Germany, as a processor for the operation of our website. 

2) Cookies

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your system and through which certain information flows to us. When you visit our website, we draw your attention to the use of cookies by means of a cookie notice that refers to this privacy policy. You can also consent to the use of cookies there.

The legal basis for the use of technically necessary cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest in the use of technically necessary cookies is to be able to offer you a functional and user-friendly website.

3) Contact form

If you use our contact form, we will use the data you provide, whereby only a valid email address is required and the other information is voluntary, to answer your enquiry. 

Data processing for the purpose of contacting us is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, insofar as your enquiry concerns the execution or processing of contracts concluded with you or the initiation of a contract. In other cases, the legal basis can be found in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, whereby our legitimate interest arises from the above-mentioned purposes.

The personal data collected by us for the use of the contact form will be automatically deleted after your enquiry has been dealt with, unless we are legally obliged to retain it or we need the data to fulfil the contract.

4) E-Mail-Kontakt

If you contact us by e-mail, we will store the personal data you provide in order to respond to your enquiry.

In the course of the transport or delivery of your e-mail, log data is also regularly generated, which also contains, for example, the IP address of the e-mail server you are using. This log data is necessary to ensure the proper operation of our email server and also serves as evidence in the event of server problems or security incidents.

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, whereby our legitimate interest arises from the above-mentioned purposes. If the contact is aimed at concluding a contract or if the contact is made within the framework of an existing contractual relationship, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR.

The data will be deleted when the enquiry has been finally processed, if we are not legally obliged to retain the data or if we need the data to fulfil the contract. The log data on our email server will be deleted after seven days at the latest.

5) Matomo

We use the web analysis service Matomo to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. We can use the statistics obtained to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. Cookies are stored on your system for this purpose. We store the information collected in this way exclusively on our servers in Germany or a member state of the European Union. It is not passed on to third parties.

Matomo is set so that the IP addresses are not stored in full, but shortened by the last two bytes, so that it is no longer possible to assign the shortened IP address to the calling system.

The legal basis for the use of Matomo is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, whereby our legitimate interest arises from the above-mentioned purposes.

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for our purposes. This is the case for us after 6 months.

You can delete cookies at any time in your browser settings. You can also generally exclude the setting of cookies there.

We also offer the option of opting out of the analysis process. To do this, you must follow the following link. In this way, another cookie is set on your system, which signals to Matomo that your data should not be saved. If you delete your cookies in the meantime, you must also set the opt-out cookie again. Link to the opt-out: LINK 

6) Applicant data

If you send us your application, we process the data transmitted to us to fulfil our (pre-)contractual obligations as part of the application process. If your application is successful, we will continue to process the data for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship.

The legal bases are Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR and § 26 BDSG. If you voluntarily provide us with special categories of personal data, such as health data or religious affiliation, the additional legal basis is Art. 9 para. 2 lit. b GDPR.

If your application is unsuccessful, we will delete your data after six months at the latest. The data will be stored until then to answer any follow-up questions about the application process and to fulfil our obligations to provide evidence under the AGG. If you withdraw your application, we will delete your data immediately.
