Data protection

Data protection

The protection of your personal data is very important to us. We treat them confidentially and process them in accordance with the statutory regulations, in particular the EU Data Protection Regulation (EU DSGVO). However, we would like to point out that data transmission on the internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps, which is why complete protection cannot be guaranteed.

Disclosure to third parties, transfer to third countries:
We only disclose your data to third parties within the scope of legal obligations or with your consent.

Personal data is only transferred to countries outside the EU or EEA if this is required by law or if you have given us your consent.

We store your data for as long as it is needed for the respective processing purpose and for as long as required by legal retention periods. These are, in particular, retention periods under commercial or tax law. After expiry of this period, the data will be routinely deleted, provided that no legitimate interests of the responsible party outweigh the interest in deletion.

2. data collection in connection with the use of our website

Server log files
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 version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

The information is used to display the contents of the website correctly to you, to ensure the operation of this website, for statistical purposes and to provide law enforcement authorities with the necessary data in the event of a cyber-attack.

This data is not merged with other data sources. The data is stored for a certain period of time on the basis of Art. 6 (1) f of the EU DSGVO for reasons of technical security and to defend against cyber attacks and is then routinely deleted.

An order processing contract was concluded with the provider.

Contact request by e-mail or via contact form
If you contact us by e-mail or via the contact form, the personal data you voluntarily provide will be stored by us for the purpose of processing your request or contacting you.

If an employment contract is concluded, the data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship within the framework of the statutory provisions. If no employment contract is concluded, your data will be deleted after completion of the application procedure and after expiry of the time limits, at the latest 6 months after the decision, provided that no legitimate interests of the controller conflict with this.
