Collection of general information
When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider and similar information. None of these data allows any conclusions to be drawn about your person. This information is technically necessary to correctly deliver the content you have requested from websites and is required when using the internet. We statistically evaluate anonymous information of this kind to optimise our internet profile and the technology behind it.
Disclosure, correction, deletion or limitation of processing of personal data
You also have the right to correction, restriction of the processing or, apart from the prescribed data storage for business transactions, deletion of your personal data.
You can revoke your consent by notifying us accordingly, with future effect.
Purposes of data processing undertaken by the controller and third parties
We process your personal data only for the purposes stated in this data protection declaration. Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties for purposes other than those mentioned. We will only pass on your personal data to third parties if:
- You have given your explicit consent
- Processing is necessary to conclude a contract with you
- The processing is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation
- The processing is necessary to protect legitimate interests and there is no reason to believe that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in not disclosing your data
Deletion of data
We adhere to the principles of storage limitation. We only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as provided for by law. After the purpose has been achieved or these periods have expired, the data will be blocked or deleted as a routine matter and in accordance with legal provisions.
Application documents are kept for six months and then destroyed. Your data will only be stored in our applicant pool for a longer period at your express request. Oral statements cannot be considered because accountability must be demonstrated (General Data Protection Regulation 5(2)).
Cookies cannot be used to start programs or to transmit viruses to a computer. The information contained in cookies allows us to make navigation easier for you and enable our websites to be displayed correctly.
Under no circumstances will the data we collect be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.
Contact form or e-mail
Please contact us if you have any questions via e-mail or contact form. The fields marked with an asterisk in the form are required. These are used to categorise the request and then reply to it. The information you provide will only be stored for processing your inquiry and for possible follow-up questions.
Use of Google Fonts
To display our contents correctly and in an appealing design on all browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries, e.g. Google Fonts. Google Fonts are transferred to your browser's cache to avoid multiple loading. If your browser does not support Google Fonts or does not allow access, content will be displayed in a default font.
Accessing script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. In theory, it is possible - but currently also unclear whether and, if so, for what purposes - that operators of such libraries collect data.
Use of Google Maps
Detailed instructions for managing your own data in connection with Google products can be found here.
Changes to our data protection provisions
We reserve the right to adapt this data protection policy so that it always complies with current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection policy, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data protection policy will then apply the next time you access our site.
