In this case we only receive communications data from your browser, with no specific reference to individuals. In this situation we collect the following data: IP address, data and time of the query, access status/HTTP status code, quantity of data transferred, browser, operating system and its interface, language and version of the browser software, website from which the request originates, content of the request, time zone difference to GMT. This occurs to the extent technically necessary to enable access to our website and to provide you with the services offered for your use on our website, for the analysis, adaptation and improvement of our services, content and advertisements and to ensure stability and security. The legal basis is Article 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR. The data is stored for a period of 6 months and then automatically erased.

(2) Additionally, during use of the website, cookies are stored on your computer Cookies are small text files which are stored on your hard drive and assigned to your browser. The body placing the cookie (in this case, us) receives certain information from the cookie. A cookie typically contains the domain name from which the cookie originates, the “lifetime” of the cookie and a value, usually a randomly generated one-time number. Cookies cannot open programs on your computer or transmit viruses. We use them to make our website more user-friendly and effective. Some elements of our website also enable the browser contacting us to remain identifiable after the web page has changed.

(3) Our website uses the following cookies:

• Transient Cookies (Session Cookies) Session Cookies are temporary cookies which remain in the cookie file of the user’s browser until the user leaves the website, which means that they are automatically erased at the end of the browser session, when you close your browser. They store a session ID which enables various requests from your browser to be assigned to the session and are primarily required to enable the use of the website.

• Persistent cookies in connection with Google Analytics as described below. Persistent cookies will be automatically deleted after a pre-determined period, which can vary according to the type of cookie. You can erase the cookies at any time in your browser security settings.

(4) You can configure your browser to be informed when cookies are used and decide whether to accept them individually, accept cookies for certain situations or reject them. If cookies are not accepted it can restrict the functionality of our website.

(5) This stored information is stored separately from any other data provided to us. In particular, data from cookies is not linked to any additional data that you may provide.

Section 4 Collection of personal data for personalized use; in particular contact forms and advertisements.

(1) As well as purely informational use of our website, we offer various services which you can access if interested. To access these services, further personal data is normally required from you, which we use to deliver the required service. Where it is possible to provide additional voluntary details, these are indicated as such. We only collect, process and use personal data which is necessary for your use of the website, responding to an inquiry and/or for fulfilling a contract concluded with us, or which you provide to us yourself. In particular, this concerns the following personal and usage data, which may be transferred via forms on our website: First and last name (consisting of salutation, title, first name, last name), description of the company/organization, address and email address.

(2) If you contact us via email or a contact form we store the information you share in order to answer your queries and for any connected queries. This requires the provision of a valid email address so that we know from whom the query originates and in order to answer it. Further details can be provided voluntarily. Your queries will be stored for one year following our response. If it concerns business correspondence within the meaning of commercial or tax law, we retain the correspondence for the mandatory statutory period (usually six year).

(3) You can send us your application for the jobs advertised on the “Careers” sub-page. If you send your application by email please note that emails are transmitted to us unencrypted. This means that possible access to data by unauthorized third parties cannot be entirely excluded. If you do not want to take this risk you should send your application by post to the address stated in the job advertisement. We will process the personal data which you provide to us during the whole application process (for example in letters, resumé, references, applicant questionnaires, applicant interviews). This data processing occurs pursuant to Section 26 (1) (1) of the BDSG in order to carry out the application process (“Decision on the establishment of an employment relationship”). Where you have not consented to data storage beyond the end of the specific application process, we erase your data six months following conclusion of the application process. The application process is concluded upon expiry of the deadline after which claims for breach of the German General Act on Equal Treatment (AGG) can be brought (usually five months after sending of the rejection, if no claim or enforcement pursuant to Section 15, para. 4 AGG has been received by that point).

Section 5 Transmission of Personal Data to Third Parties.

(1) We sometimes use the services of external service providers, namely hosting providers, statistical and analysis services, as well as IT maintenance and development service providers.

(2) In doing this we continue to adhere to all legal data protection requirements and also commit our service providers to do this to the extent required.

(3) Beyond this we do not pass on your personal data, unless it is required by an official body on an exceptional basis, e.g. for law enforcement or to prevent danger.

(4) The above-stated processing may result in data transfer to data recipients based outside of the European Union (see below Google Analytics). Any such data transfer is in accordance with the principles of the so-called Privacy Shield ( or on the basis of the so-called Standard Contractual Clauses of the EU Commission (

Section 6 - Use of Google Analytics.

(1) This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, text files which are stored on your computer and enable analysis of your use of the website. The information obtained about your use of this website by the cookie is normally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Where IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional circumstances will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website for evaluation of your use of the website, to create reports about website activity and to deliver further services connected with use of the website and the internet for the website operator.

You can find out more about the collection of data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) for Google, and prevent the processing of this data by Google if you download and install the browser plug-in available from the following link: ( You can also prevent collection by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link: deactivate Google Analytics. This will place an opt-out cookie, which prevents the future collection of your data when visiting this website. Please note that it must be placed again after erasure of all cookies. Opt-out cookies prevent the future collection of your data when visiting this website. However, in order to prevent collection by Google Analytics on a number of devices, the opt-out must be carried out on all systems in use.

(4) This website uses Google Analytics with the add on “anonymizelp”. This means that IP addresses are processed in shortened form, such that they cannot be linked to a specific person. If the data obtained about you allows a link to a specific person, this will therefore be excluded immediately and the data erased straight away.

(5) We use Google Analytics to analyze and improve the use of our website. The legal basis for use of Google Analytics is Article 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR.

Section 8 Integration of YouTube videos.

(1) We have integrated YouTube videos in our website. These videos are stored on and can be played directly from our website. These are all integrated in “enhanced data protection mode”, which means that no data about you as a user will be transferred to YouTube if you do not play the videos. The data described in paragraph 2 will only be transferred if you play the videos. We have no influence over this data transfer.

(2) If you access a sub-page of our website, YouTube will receive information about this. There is also a transfer of the data described in section 3 of this notice. This occurs independently of whether you have a YouTube user account and whether you are logged in to it. If you are logged into Google, your data will be directly attributed to your account. To avoid this attribution you should log out before activating the button. The data collected about you will be stored by YouTube as a usage profile and used for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or configuration of its website. This evaluation also occurs for users who are not logged in. Other users of the social network may therefore be informed about your activities on our website. You can object to the generation of such user profiles by contacting the relevant social media provider.

(3) The legal basis for the use of YouTube is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR, as the use of YouTube is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of the data controller. We considered our legitimate interests to be firstly, the provision of necessary advertising and information in the form of YouTube videos and secondly, the notification of other users of the social network about the activities of users on our internet sites.

(4) The operator of YouTube is YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
