Your data will otherwise only be passed on to other third parties and transferred to third countries if this is expressly stated in this data protection declaration or if we are legally required to do so.

We store your personal data for the above purposes. Your data will be processed for the first time from the time of collection, insofar as you or a third party provide it to us. We delete your personal data that you have provided to us when the contractual relationship with you is terminated or you revoke your consent and all mutual claims have been fulfilled and there are no other legal retention obligations or legal justification reasons for storage.

Right of revocation in case of consent 

If you have given us separate consent to data processing, you can revoke this consent in accordance with Art. 7 (3) GDPR at any time. Such revocation will not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent up to the revocation.

Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The storage of Google Analytics cookies and the use of this analytical tool are based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its web offering and its advertising.


IP anonymisation

We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. This means that your IP address is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the
Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.


Objection to data collection

You can prevent the storage of all cookies by adjusting your browser software accordingly. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this and other websites to their full extent. You can also prevent the transmission of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. We also offer you the opportunity to opt-out of the collection of your website usage data for this website by clicking on the following link: Deactivate data collection by Google Analytics for this website. In this case, a special opt-out cookie will be set to prevent future collection of your usage data when visiting this website.


Order processing

We have concluded an order processing contract with Google and fully implement the strict
requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.


Demographic characteristics on Google Analytics

This website uses the "demographic features" function of Google Analytics. It allows reports to be created that contain statements about the age, gender and interests of the site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time through the ad settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as shown in the item "Objection to data collection".


Storage period

Data stored by Google at user and event level that is linked to cookies, user identifiers (e.g. User ID) or advertising IDs (e.g. DoubleClick cookies, Android advertising ID) is anonymised or deleted after 26 months. For details, please see the following link: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7667196?hl=en


Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking

This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising programme of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google"). 
Within the scope of Google AdWords, we use the so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie is set for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files that the web browser stores on the user's computer. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used to personally identify users. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognise that the user has clicked on the ad and been redirected to this page.
Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked through the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Clients learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information with which users can be personally identified. If you do not wish to participate in the tracking, you can object to this use by easily deactivating the Google conversion tracking cookie through your internet browser under user settings. They will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
The storage of "conversion cookies" and the use of this tracking tool are based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising. For more information on Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking, please see Google's privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.


Google Tag Manager

Google Tag Manager is a solution from Google Inc. that allows marketers to manage website tags through one interface. The Tag Manager tool itself (which implements the tags) is a cookie-less domain and does not collect any personal data. The tool triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at domain or cookie level, this remains in place for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager


Facebook Pixel

Our website uses the visitor action pixel from Facebook, Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook") for conversion measurement.
In this way, the behaviour of page visitors can be tracked after they have been redirected to the provider's website by clicking on a Facebook ad. This allows the effectiveness of Facebook ads to be evaluated for statistical and market research purposes and to optimise future advertising measures. The data collected is anonymous for us as the operator of this website, we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of the users. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with the Facebook data usage policy. This allows Facebook to serve ads on Facebook pages as well as outside of Facebook. This use of the data cannot be influenced by us as the site operator.
The use of Facebook Pixel is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in effective advertising measures including social media. You can find more information about protecting your privacy in Facebook's privacy notice: https://www.facebook.com/privacy/policy//
You can also deactivate the Custom Audiences remarketing feature in
Ad Preferences at https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen. To do this, you must be logged in to Facebook. If you do not have a Facebook account, you can opt out of usage-based advertising from Facebook on the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance website:

CleverReach

This website uses CleverReach to send newsletters. The provider is CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Mühlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede. CleverReach is a service with which the newsletter dispatch
can be organised and analysed. The data you enter for the purpose of receiving the newsletter (e.g. email address) is stored on CleverReach's servers in Germany or Ireland. Our newsletters sent with CleverReach allow us to analyse the behaviour of newsletter recipients. Among other things, we can analyse how many recipients have opened the newsletter message and how often which link in the newsletter was clicked. With the help of so-called conversion tracking, we can also analyse whether a predefined action (e.g. purchase of a product on our website) has taken place after clicking on the link in the newsletter. For more information on data analysis by CleverReach newsletters, please visit: https://www.cleverreach.com/en-de/newsletter-tool/newsletter-reporting/.
The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time as previously described by unsubscribing from the newsletter. If you do not want any analysis by CleverReach, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter.
The data you provide us with for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of CleverReach after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data that has been stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected by this. For more details, please see CleverReach's privacy policy at: https://www.cleverreach.com/en-de/privacy-policy/.


Conclusion of a contract for order processing

We have concluded a contract for order processing with CleverReach and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using CleverReach.

Google Maps 

This page uses the map service Google Maps through an API. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Maps will store your IP address. This is then usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transmission from Google Maps. More information on the handling of user data can be found in Google's privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en-US.

Social Wall with Flockler

This website uses Flockler's "Social Media Wall" as a compilation of posts from various social networks that mention us or that contain a hashtag with our name or the name of a campaign. This includes mentions of posts we publish on social networks and posts published by users. The content of the posts is automatically sourced from the respective social networks in accordance with the terms and permissions of the authors, and users can object to the display at any time. As a matter of principle, the authors are responsible for the content of the posts.

The providers of the respective social networks are responsible for the processing of data in connection with the presentation of the posts and their content. We refer to the information on the respective social networks within the scope of this data protection declaration. Without prejudice to the data protection rights of users, we recommend that users (also) contact the respective authors or providers of the respective social networks in the event of requests for information and complaints about posts that were not made by us, in order to remove the posts at the source or to assert your data protection rights.

Sharing buttons

On the website we use privacy-safe "Shariff buttons". Shariff was developed by specialists from the computer magazine c't to allow more privacy on the net and to replace the usual "share" buttons of social networks. 

Information on online presences in social media in accordance with Article 13 GDPR

We maintain online presences within social networks and platforms in order to be able to communicate with the customers, interested parties and users active there and to inform them about our services there.

We would like to point out that user data may be processed outside the European Union. This can result in risks for users because, for example, it could make it more difficult to enforce users' rights. Furthermore, user data is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, usage profiles can be created from the usage behaviour and resulting interests of the users. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements within and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the users' computers, in which the usage behaviour and interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, the usage profiles can also store data independently of the devices used by the users.

The processing of users' personal data is based on our legitimate interests in providing users with effective information and communicating with users in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. 

For a detailed description of the respective processing and the opt-out options, please refer to the information of the providers linked below.

Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be asserted most effectively with the providers. Only the providers have access to the users' data and can directly take appropriate measures and provide information. If you still need help, you can contact us.

Scope, purpose and legal basis of data collection

If you send us an application, we process your associated personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes in the context of job interviews, etc.), insofar as this is necessary to decide on the establishment of an employment relationship. 

The legal basis for this is § 26 BDSG-neu under German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR (general contract initiation) and – if you have given your consent – Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. The consent can be revoked at any time. 
Your personal data will only be passed on within our company to persons who are involved in processing your application. If the application is successful, the data submitted by you will be processed on the basis of § 26 BDSG-neu and Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship in our data processing systems.
 

Duration of data retention

If we are unable to make you a job offer, you reject a job offer, withdraw your application, revoke your consent to data processing or request us to delete the data, the data you have submitted incl. If applicable, any remaining physical application documents will be stored for a maximum of 6 months and 7 days after the end of the application process (retention period) in order to be able to trace the details of the application process in case of discrepancies (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR).

If we find your profile interesting for other vacancies and would like to check further employment opportunities, we will write to you to ask whether you agree to be included in the pool of applicants. The same applies to speculative applications. In the event that you have agreed to further storage of your personal data, we will transfer your data to our applicant pool. There, the data is deleted after 12 months.

After expiry of the retention period, the data will be deleted unless there is a legal obligation to retain the data or another legal reason for further storage. If it is evident that it will be necessary to retain your data after the retention period has expired (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), the data will only be deleted once it has become irrelevant. Other statutory retention obligations remain unaffected.


Recipients of personal data

We use the online portal of d.vinci HR-Systems GmbH to register your application data. This company acts as a service provider for us and may also obtain knowledge of your personal data in connection with the maintenance and care of the systems. We have concluded a so-called order processing contract with this provider, which ensures that the data processing is carried out in a permissible manner.
Your applicant data will be viewed by the HR department after receipt of your application. Suitable applications are then forwarded internally to the department heads for the respective open position. Then the further procedure is coordinated. In principle, only those persons in the company have access to your data who need this for the proper running of our application process.
 

Transfer of data to third parties

Personal data will not be transferred by us to third parties as part of the application process.
