3. Gen­eral inform­a­tion and man­dat­ory inform­a­tion

Data pro­tec­tion

The oper­at­ors of this web­site and its pages take the pro­tec­tion of your per­sonal data very ser­i­ously. Hence, we handle your per­sonal data as con­fid­en­tial inform­a­tion and in com­pli­ance with the stat­utory data pro­tec­tion reg­u­la­tions and this Data Pro­tec­tion Declar­a­tion.

The con­trol­ler is the nat­ural per­son or legal entity that single-handedly or jointly with oth­ers makes decisions as to the pur­poses of and resources for the pro­cessing of per­sonal data (e.g. names, e‑mail addresses, etc.).

Revoc­a­tion of your con­sent to the pro­cessing of data

A wide range of data pro­cessing trans­ac­tions are pos­sible only sub­ject to your express con­sent. You can also revoke at any time any con­sent you have already given us. To do so, all you are required to do is sent us an informal noti­fic­a­tion via e‑mail. This shall be without pre­ju­dice to the law­ful­ness of any data col­lec­tion that occurred prior to your revoc­a­tion.

Right to object to the col­lec­tion of data in spe­cial cases; right to object to dir­ect advert­ising (Art. 21 GDPR)

IN THE EVENT THAT DATA ARE PROCESSED ON THE BASIS OF ART. 6 SECT. 1 LIT. E OR F GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO AT ANY TIME OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA BASED ON GROUNDS ARISING FROM YOUR UNIQUE SITUATION. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO ANY PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS. TO DETERMINE THE LEGAL BASIS, ON WHICH ANY PROCESSING OF DATA IS BASED, PLEASE CONSULT THIS DATA PROTECTION DECLARATION. IF YOU LOG AN OBJECTION, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA, UNLESS WE ARE IN A POSITION TO PRESENT COMPELLING PROTECTION WORTHY GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING OF YOUR DATA, THAT OUTWEIGH YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS OR IF THE PURPOSE OF THE PROCESSING IS THE CLAIMING, EXERCISING OR DEFENCE OF LEGAL ENTITLEMENTS (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21 SECT. 1 GDPR).

IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS BEING PROCESSED IN ORDER TO ENGAGE IN DIRECT ADVERTISING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO AT ANY TIME OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSES OF SUCH ADVERTISING. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING TO THE EXTENT THAT IT IS AFFILIATED WITH SUCH DIRECT ADVERTISING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR DIRECT ADVERTISING PURPOSES (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21 SECT. 2 GDPR).

Right to log a com­plaint with the com­pet­ent super­vis­ory agency

In the event of viol­a­tions of the GDPR, data sub­jects are entitled to log a com­plaint with a super­vis­ory agency, in par­tic­u­lar in the mem­ber state where they usu­ally main­tain their dom­i­cile, place of work or at the place where the alleged viol­a­tion occurred. The right to log a com­plaint is in effect regard­less of any other admin­is­trat­ive or court pro­ceed­ings avail­able as legal recourses.

Right to data port­ab­il­ity

You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we auto­mat­ic­ally pro­cess on the basis of your con­sent or in order to ful­fil a con­tract be handed over to you or a third party in a com­monly used, machine read­able format. If you should demand the dir­ect trans­fer of the data to another con­trol­ler, this will be done only if it is tech­nic­ally feas­ible.

SSL and/or TLS encryp­tion

For secur­ity reas­ons and to pro­tect the trans­mis­sion of con­fid­en­tial con­tent, such as pur­chase orders or inquir­ies you sub­mit to us as the web­site oper­ator, this web­site uses either an SSL or a TLS encryp­tion pro­gramme. You can recog­nise an encryp­ted con­nec­tion by check­ing whether the address line of the browser switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appear­ance of the lock icon in the browser line.

If the SSL or TLS encryp­tion is activ­ated, data you trans­mit to us can­not be read by third parties.

Inform­a­tion about, rec­ti­fic­a­tion and erad­ic­a­tion of data

Within the scope of the applic­able stat­utory pro­vi­sions, you have the right to at any time demand inform­a­tion about your archived per­sonal data, their source and recip­i­ents as well as the pur­pose of the pro­cessing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data rec­ti­fied or erad­ic­ated. If you have ques­tions about this sub­ject mat­ter or any other ques­tions about per­sonal data, please do not hes­it­ate to con­tact us at any time at the address provided in sec­tion “Inform­a­tion Required by Law.”

Right to demand pro­cessing restric­tions

You have the right to demand the impos­i­tion of restric­tions as far as the pro­cessing of your per­sonal data is con­cerned. To do so, you may con­tact us at any time at the address provided in sec­tion “Inform­a­tion Required by Law.” The right to demand restric­tion of pro­cessing applies in the fol­low­ing cases:

  • In the event that you should dis­pute the cor­rect­ness of your data archived by us, we will usu­ally need some time to verify this claim. Dur­ing the time that this invest­ig­a­tion is ongo­ing, you have the right to demand that we restrict the pro­cessing of your per­sonal data.
  • If the pro­cessing of your per­sonal data was/is con­duc­ted in an unlaw­ful man­ner, you have the option to demand the restric­tion of the pro­cessing of your data in lieu of demand­ing the erad­ic­a­tion of this data.
  • If we do not need your per­sonal data any longer and you need it to exer­cise, defend or claim legal enti­tle­ments, you have the right to demand the restric­tion of the pro­cessing of your per­sonal data instead of its erad­ic­a­tion.
  • If you have raised an objec­tion pur­su­ant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be weighed against each other. As long as it has not been determ­ined whose interests pre­vail, you have the right to demand a restric­tion of the pro­cessing of your per­sonal data.

If you have restric­ted the pro­cessing of your per­sonal data, these data – with the excep­tion of their archiv­ing – may be pro­cessed only sub­ject to your con­sent or to claim, exer­cise or defend legal enti­tle­ments or to pro­tect the rights of other nat­ural per­sons or legal entit­ies or for import­ant pub­lic interest reas­ons cited by the European Union or a mem­ber state of the EU.

4. Record­ing of data on this web­site

Cook­ies

Our web­sites and pages use what the industry refers to as “cook­ies.” Cook­ies are small text files that do not cause any dam­age to your device. They are either stored tem­por­ar­ily for the dur­a­tion of a ses­sion (ses­sion cook­ies) or they are per­man­ently archived on your device (per­man­ent cook­ies). Ses­sion cook­ies are auto­mat­ic­ally deleted once you ter­min­ate your visit. Per­man­ent cook­ies remain archived on your device until you act­ively delete them or they are auto­mat­ic­ally erad­ic­ated by your web browser.

In some cases it is pos­sible that third party cook­ies are stored on your device once you enter our site (third party cook­ies). These cook­ies enable you or us to take advant­age of cer­tain ser­vices offered by the third party (e.g. cook­ies for the pro­cessing of pay­ment ser­vices).

Cook­ies have a vari­ety of func­tions. Many cook­ies are tech­nic­ally essen­tial since cer­tain web­site func­tions would not work in the absence of the cook­ies (e.g. the shop­ping cart func­tion or the dis­play of videos). The pur­pose of other cook­ies may be the ana­lysis of user pat­terns or the dis­play of pro­mo­tional mes­sages.

Cook­ies that are required for the per­form­ance of the elec­tronic com­mu­nic­a­tions trans­ac­tion or to provide cer­tain func­tions you want to use (e.g. the shop­ping cart func­tion), are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The web­site oper­ator has a legit­im­ate interest in stor­ing cook­ies to ensure the tech­nic­ally error free and optim­ised pro­vi­sion of the operator’s ser­vices. If a cor­res­pond­ing agree­ment has been reques­ted (e.g. an agree­ment to the stor­age of cook­ies), the pro­cessing takes place exclus­ively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the agree­ment can be revoked at any time.

You have the option to set up your browser in such a man­ner that you will be noti­fied any time cook­ies are placed and to per­mit the accept­ance of cook­ies only in spe­cific cases. You may also exclude the accept­ance of cook­ies in cer­tain cases or in gen­eral or activ­ate the delete func­tion for the auto­matic erad­ic­a­tion of cook­ies when the browser closes. If cook­ies are deac­tiv­ated, the func­tions of this web­site may be lim­ited.

In the event that third party cook­ies are used or if cook­ies are used for ana­lyt­ical pur­poses, we will sep­ar­ately notify you in con­junc­tion with this Data Pro­tec­tion Policy and, if applic­able, ask for your con­sent.

Cookie Con­sent with Bor­labs Cookie

Our web­site uses the Bor­labs cookie con­sent tech­no­logy to obtain your con­sent to the stor­age of cer­tain cook­ies in your browser and for their data pri­vacy pro­tec­tion com­pli­ant doc­u­ment­a­tion. The pro­vider of this tech­no­logy is Bor­labs — Ben­jamin A. Bornschein, Georg-Wil­helm-Str. 17, 21107 Ham­burg, Ger­many (here­in­after referred to as Bor­labs).

Whenever you visit our web­site, a Bor­labs cookie will be stored in your browser, which archives any declar­a­tions or revoc­a­tions of con­sent you have entered. These data are not shared with the pro­vider of the Bor­labs tech­no­logy.

The recor­ded data shall remain archived until you ask us to erad­ic­ate them, delete the Bor­labs cookie on your own or the pur­pose of stor­ing the data no longer exists. This shall be without pre­ju­dice to any reten­tion oblig­a­tions man­dated by law. To review the details of Bor­labs’ data pro­cessing policies, please visit https://de.borlabs.io/kb/welche-daten-speichert-borlabs-cookie/

We use the Bor­labs cookie con­sent tech­no­logy to obtain the declar­a­tions of con­sent man­dated by law for the use of cook­ies. The legal basis for the use of such cook­ies is Art. 6 Sect. 1 Sen­tence 1 lit. c GDPR.

Server log files

The pro­vider of this web­site and its pages auto­mat­ic­ally col­lects and stores inform­a­tion in so-called server log files, which your browser com­mu­nic­ates to us auto­mat­ic­ally. The inform­a­tion com­prises:

  • The type and ver­sion of browser used
  • The used oper­at­ing sys­tem
  • Refer­rer URL
  • The host­name of the access­ing com­puter
  • The time of the server inquiry
  • The IP address

This data is not merged with other data sources.

This data is recor­ded on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The oper­ator of the web­site has a legit­im­ate interest in the tech­nic­ally error free depic­tion and the optim­iz­a­tion of the operator’s web­site. In order to achieve this, server log files must be recor­ded.

Con­tact form

If you sub­mit inquir­ies to us via our con­tact form, the inform­a­tion provided in the con­tact form as well as any con­tact inform­a­tion provided therein will be stored by us in order to handle your inquiry and in the event that we have fur­ther ques­tions. We will not share this inform­a­tion without your con­sent.

The pro­cessing of these data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your request is related to the exe­cu­tion of a con­tract or if it is neces­sary to carry out pre-con­trac­tual meas­ures. In all other cases the pro­cessing is based on our legit­im­ate interest in the effect­ive pro­cessing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO) or on your agree­ment (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO) if this has been reques­ted.

The inform­a­tion you have entered into the con­tact form shall remain with us until you ask us to erad­ic­ate the data, revoke your con­sent to the archiv­ing of data or if the pur­pose for which the inform­a­tion is being archived no longer exists (e.g. after we have con­cluded our response to your inquiry). This shall be without pre­ju­dice to any man­dat­ory legal pro­vi­sions – in par­tic­u­lar reten­tion peri­ods.

Request by e‑mail, tele­phone or fax

If you con­tact us by e‑mail, tele­phone or fax, your request, includ­ing all res­ult­ing per­sonal data (name, request) will be stored and pro­cessed by us for the pur­pose of pro­cessing your request. We do not pass these data on without your con­sent.

The pro­cessing of these data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your request is related to the exe­cu­tion of a con­tract or if it is neces­sary to carry out pre-con­trac­tual meas­ures. In all other cases, the pro­cessing is based on your con­sent (Art­icle 6 (1) a GDPR) and/or on our legit­im­ate interests (Art­icle 6 (1) (f) GDPR), since we have a legit­im­ate interest in the effect­ive pro­cessing of requests addressed to us.

The data sent by you to us via con­tact requests remain with us until you request us to delete, revoke your con­sent to the stor­age or the pur­pose for the data stor­age lapses (e.g. after com­ple­tion of your request). Man­dat­ory stat­utory pro­vi­sions — in par­tic­u­lar stat­utory reten­tion peri­ods — remain unaf­fected.

Regis­tra­tion on this web­site

You have the option to register on this web­site to be able to use addi­tional web­site func­tions. We shall use the data you enter only for the pur­pose of using the respect­ive offer or ser­vice you have registered for. The required inform­a­tion we request at the time of regis­tra­tion must be entered in full. Oth­er­wise we shall reject the regis­tra­tion.

To notify you of any import­ant changes to the scope of our port­fo­lio or in the event of tech­nical modi­fic­a­tions, we shall use the e‑mail address provided dur­ing the regis­tra­tion pro­cess.

We shall pro­cess the data entered dur­ing the regis­tra­tion pro­cess on the basis of your con­sent (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR).

The data recor­ded dur­ing the regis­tra­tion pro­cess shall be stored by us as long as you are registered on this web­site. Sub­sequently, such data shall be deleted. This shall be without pre­ju­dice to man­dat­ory stat­utory reten­tion oblig­a­tions.

5. Ana­lysis tools and advert­ising

Mat­omo (formerly called Piwik)

This web­site uses the open source web ana­lysis ser­vice Mat­omo. Mat­omo uses so-called “cook­ies,” which are text files that are stored on your com­puter and that make it pos­sible to ana­lyse your use of this web­site. In con­junc­tion with this, the inform­a­tion about the use of this web­site gen­er­ated by the cookie will be archived on our server. Prior to archiv­ing, the IP address will first be anonym­ized.

Mat­omo cook­ies will remain on your device until you delete them.

The stor­age of Mat­omo cook­ies and the use of this ana­lysis tool are based on Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The web­site oper­ator has a legit­im­ate interest in the ana­lysis of user pat­terns, in order to optim­ize the operator’s web offer­ings and advert­ising. If a cor­res­pond­ing agree­ment has been reques­ted (e.g. an agree­ment to the stor­age of cook­ies), the pro­cessing takes place exclus­ively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the agree­ment can be revoked at any time.

The inform­a­tion gen­er­ated by cook­ies con­cern­ing the use of this web­site shall not be shared with any third parties. You may pre­vent the stor­age of cook­ies at any time by mak­ing per­tin­ent changes to your browser soft­ware set­tings; how­ever, we have to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all of the func­tions of this web­site to their fullest extent.

If you do not con­sent to the stor­age and use of your data, you have the option to deac­tiv­ate the stor­age and use of such data here. In this case, an opt out cookie will be placed in our browser, which pre­vent the stor­age of usage data by Mat­omo. If you delete your cook­ies, this will also res­ult in the dele­tion of the Mat­omo opt out cookie. Hence, you will have to react­iv­ate the opt out when you return to visit this web­site.

7. Cus­tom Ser­vices

Job Applic­a­tions

We offer web­site vis­it­ors the oppor­tun­ity to sub­mit job applic­a­tions to us (e.g. via e‑mail, via postal ser­vices on by sub­mit­ting the online job applic­a­tion form). Below, we will brief you on the scope, pur­pose and use of the per­sonal data col­lec­ted from you in con­junc­tion with the applic­a­tion pro­cess. We assure you that the col­lec­tion, pro­cessing and use of your data will occur in com­pli­ance with the applic­able data pri­vacy rights and all other stat­utory pro­vi­sions and that your data will always be treated as strictly con­fid­en­tial. 

Scope and pur­pose of the col­lec­tion of data

If you sub­mit a job applic­a­tion to us, we will pro­cess any affil­i­ated per­sonal data (e.g. con­tact and com­mu­nic­a­tions data, applic­a­tion doc­u­ments, notes taken dur­ing job inter­views, etc.), if they are required to make a decision con­cern­ing the estab­lish­ment or an employ­ment rela­tion­ship. The legal grounds for the afore­men­tioned are § 26 New GDPR accord­ing to Ger­man Law (Nego­ti­ation of an Employ­ment Rela­tion­ship), Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR (Gen­eral Con­tract Nego­ti­ations) and – provided you have given us your con­sent – Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR. You may revoke any con­sent given at any time. Within our com­pany, your per­sonal data will only be shared with indi­vidu­als who are involved in the pro­cessing of your job applic­a­tion.

If your job applic­a­tion should res­ult in your recruit­ment, the data you have sub­mit­ted will be archived on the grounds of § 26 New GDPR and Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR for the pur­pose of imple­ment­ing the employ­ment rela­tion­ship in our data pro­cessing sys­tem.

Data Archiv­ing Period

If we are unable to make you a job offer or you reject a job offer or with­draw your applic­a­tion, we reserve the right to retain the data you have sub­mit­ted on the basis of our legit­im­ate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO) for up to 6 months from the end of the applic­a­tion pro­ced­ure (rejec­tion or with­drawal of the applic­a­tion). After­wards the data will be deleted, and the phys­ical applic­a­tion doc­u­ments will be des­troyed. The stor­age serves in par­tic­u­lar as evid­ence in the event of a legal dis­pute. If it is evid­ent that the data will be required after the expiry of the 6‑month period (e.g. due to an impend­ing or pending legal dis­pute), dele­tion will only take place when the pur­pose for fur­ther stor­age no longer applies.

Longer stor­age may also take place if you have given your agree­ment (Art­icle 6 (1) (a) GDPR) or if stat­utory data reten­tion require­ments pre­clude the dele­tion.
