Data record­ing on our web­site

Who is the respon­si­ble par­ty for the record­ing of data on this web­site (i.e. the “con­trol­ler”)?

The data on this web­site is pro­ces­sed by the ope­ra­tor of the web­site, who­se con­ta­ct infor­ma­ti­on is avail­ab­le under sec­tion “Infor­ma­ti­on Requi­red by Law” on this web­site.

How do we record your data?

We collect your data as a result of your sharing of your data with us. This may, for instance be infor­ma­ti­on you enter into our con­ta­ct form.

Our IT sys­tems auto­ma­ti­cal­ly record other data when you visit our web­site. This data com­pri­ses pri­ma­ri­ly tech­ni­cal infor­ma­ti­on (e.g. web brow­ser, ope­ra­ting sys­tem or time the site was acces­sed). This infor­ma­ti­on is recor­ded auto­ma­ti­cal­ly when you access our web­site.

What are the pur­po­ses we use your data for?

A por­ti­on of the infor­ma­ti­on is gene­ra­ted to gua­ran­tee the error free pro­vi­si­on of the web­site. Other data may be used to ana­ly­se your user pat­terns.

What rights do you have as far as your infor­ma­ti­on is con­cer­ned?

You have the right to recei­ve infor­ma­ti­on about the source, reci­pi­ents and pur­po­ses of your archi­ved per­so­nal data at any time without having to pay a fee for such dis­clo­sures. You also have the right to demand that your data are rec­ti­fied, blo­cked or era­di­ca­ted. Plea­se do not hesi­ta­te to con­ta­ct us at any time under the address dis­c­lo­sed in sec­tion “Infor­ma­ti­on Requi­red by Law” on this web­site if you have ques­ti­ons about this or any other data pro­tec­tion rela­ted issu­es. You also have the right to log a com­p­laint with the com­pe­tent super­vi­sing agen­cy.

Ana­ly­sis tools and tools pro­vi­ded by third par­ties

The­re is a pos­si­bi­li­ty that your brow­sing pat­terns will be sta­tis­ti­cal­ly ana­ly­sed when your visit our web­site. Such ana­ly­ses are per­for­med pri­ma­ri­ly with coo­kies and with what we refer to as ana­ly­sis pro­gram­mes. As a rule, the ana­ly­ses of your brow­sing pat­terns are con­duc­ted anony­mous­ly; i.e. the brow­sing pat­terns can­not be traced back to you. You have the opti­on to object to such ana­ly­ses or you can pre­vent their per­for­mance by not using cer­tain tools. For detail­ed infor­ma­ti­on about this, plea­se con­sult our Data Pro­tec­tion Decla­ra­ti­on below.

You do have the opti­on to object to such ana­ly­ses. We will brief you on the objec­tion opti­ons in this Data Pro­tec­tion Decla­ra­ti­on.

  1. 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.

Whenever you use this web­site, a varie­ty of per­so­nal infor­ma­ti­on will be collec­ted. Per­so­nal data com­pri­ses data that can be used to per­so­nal­ly iden­ti­fy you. This Data Pro­tec­tion Decla­ra­ti­on exp­lains which data we collect as well as the pur­po­ses we use this data for. It also exp­lains how, and for which pur­po­se the infor­ma­ti­on is collec­ted.

We here­with advi­se you that the trans­mis­si­on of data via the Inter­net (i.e. through e‑mail com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons) may be pro­ne to secu­ri­ty gaps. It is not pos­si­ble to com­ple­te­ly pro­tect data against third par­ty access.

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, blo­cka­ge, 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, blo­cked 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.

Rejec­tion of unso­li­ci­ted e‑mails

We here­with object to the use of con­ta­ct infor­ma­ti­on publis­hed in con­junc­tion with the man­da­to­ry infor­ma­ti­on to be pro­vi­ded in sec­tion “Infor­ma­ti­on Requi­red by Law” to send us pro­mo­tio­nal and infor­ma­ti­on mate­ri­al that we have not express­ly reques­ted. The ope­ra­tors of this web­site and its pages reser­ve the express right to take legal action in the event of the unso­li­ci­ted sen­ding of pro­mo­tio­nal infor­ma­ti­on, for instance via SPAM messages.

  1. Record­ing of data on our web­site

Coo­kies

In some instan­ces, our web­site and its pages use so-cal­led coo­kies. Coo­kies do not cau­se any dama­ge to your com­pu­ter and do not con­tain viru­ses. The pur­po­se of coo­kies is to make our web­site more user friend­ly, effec­ti­ve and more secu­re. Coo­kies are small text files that are pla­ced on your com­pu­ter and stored by your brow­ser.

Most of the coo­kies we use are so-cal­led “ses­si­on coo­kies.” They are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted after your lea­ve our site. Other coo­kies will remain archi­ved on your device until you dele­te them. The­se coo­kies enab­le us to reco­gni­se your brow­ser the next time you visit our web­site.

You can adjust the set­tings of your brow­ser to make sure that you are noti­fied every time coo­kies are pla­ced and to enab­le you to accept coo­kies only in spe­ci­fic cases or to exclu­de the accep­t­ance of coo­kies for spe­ci­fic situa­tions or in gene­ral and to acti­va­te the auto­ma­tic dele­ti­on of coo­kies when you clo­se your brow­ser. If you deac­ti­va­te coo­kies, the func­tions of this web­site may be limi­ted.

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 other coo­kies (e.g. coo­kies for the ana­ly­sis of your brow­sing pat­terns) should be stored, they are addres­sed sepa­r­ate­ly in this Data Pro­tec­tion Decla­ra­ti­on.

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.

Hence, the pro­ces­sing of the data ent­e­red into the con­ta­ct form occurs exclu­si­ve­ly based on your con­sent (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR). You have the right to 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.

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 our 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). You have the right to 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.

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

Goog­le Ana­ly­tics Remar­ke­ting

Our web­sites use the func­tions of Goog­le Ana­ly­tics Remar­ke­ting in com­bi­na­ti­on with the func­tions of Goog­le AdWords and Goog­le Dou­ble­Click, which work on all devices. The pro­vi­der of the­se solu­ti­ons is Goog­le Ire­land Limi­ted (“Goog­le”), Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dub­lin 4, Ire­land.

This func­tion makes it pos­si­ble to con­nect the adver­ti­sing tar­get groups gene­ra­ted with Goog­le Ana­ly­tics Remar­ke­ting with the func­tions of Goog­le AdWords and Goog­le Dou­ble­Click, which work on all devices. This makes it pos­si­ble to dis­play inte­rest-based cus­to­mi­zed adver­ti­sing messages, depen­ding on your pri­or usa­ge and brow­sing pat­terns on a device (e.g. cell pho­ne) in a man­ner tailo­red to you as well as on any of your devices (e.g. tablet or PC).

If you have given us per­ti­nent con­sent, Goog­le will con­nect your web and app brow­ser pro­gres­si­ons with your Goog­le account for this pur­po­se. As a result, it is pos­si­ble to dis­play the same per­so­na­li­zed adver­ti­sing messages on every device you log into with your Goog­le account.

To sup­port this func­tion, Goog­le Ana­ly­tics records Goog­le authen­ti­ca­ted IDs of users that are tem­pora­ri­ly con­nec­ted with our Goog­le Ana­ly­tics data to defi­ne and com­pi­le the tar­get groups for the ads to be dis­play­ed on all devices.

You have the opti­on to per­ma­nent­ly object to remar­ke­ting / tar­ge­ting across all devices by deac­ti­vat­ing per­so­na­li­zed adver­ti­sing in your Goog­le account. To do this, plea­se fol­low this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.

The con­so­li­da­ti­on of the recor­ded data in your Goog­le account shall occur exclu­si­ve­ly based on your con­sent, which you may give to Goog­le and also revo­ke the­re (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR). Data record­ing pro­ces­ses that are not con­so­li­da­ted in your Goog­le account (for instance becau­se you do not have a Goog­le account or have objec­ted to the con­so­li­da­ti­on of data), the record­ing of data is based on Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest ari­ses from the fact that the ope­ra­tor of the web­site has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the anony­mi­zed ana­ly­sis of web­site visi­tor for adver­ti­sing pur­po­ses.

For fur­ther infor­ma­ti­on and the per­ti­nent data pro­tec­tion regu­la­ti­ons, plea­se con­sult the Data Pri­va­cy Poli­ci­es of Goog­le at: https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads?hl=en.

Goog­le AdWords and Goog­le Con­ver­si­on Tracking

This web­site uses Goog­le AdWords. AdWords is an online pro­mo­tio­nal pro­gram of Goog­le Ire­land Limi­ted (“Goog­le”), Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dub­lin 4, Ire­land.

In con­junc­tion with Goog­le AdWords, we use a tool cal­led Con­ver­si­on Tracking. If you click on an ad pos­ted by Goog­le, a coo­kie for Con­ver­si­on Tracking pur­po­ses will be pla­ced. Coo­kies are small text files the web brow­ser pla­ces on the user’s com­pu­ter. The­se coo­kies expi­re 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 will be able to reco­gni­se that the user has cli­cked on an ad and has been lin­ked to this page.

A dif­fe­rent coo­kie is allo­ca­ted to every Goog­le AdWords cus­to­mer. The­se coo­kies can­not be tra­cked via web­sites of AdWords cus­to­mers. The infor­ma­ti­on obtai­ned with the assi­s­tance of the Con­ver­si­on coo­kie is used to gene­ra­te Con­ver­si­on sta­tis­tics for AdWords cus­to­mers who have opted to use Con­ver­si­on Tracking. The users recei­ve the total num­ber of users that have cli­cked on their ads and have been lin­ked to a page equip­ped with a Con­ver­si­on Tracking tag. Howe­ver, they do not recei­ve any infor­ma­ti­on that would allow them to per­so­nal­ly iden­ti­fy the­se users. If you do not want to par­ti­ci­pa­te in tracking, you have the opti­on to object to this use by easi­ly deac­ti­vat­ing the Goog­le Con­ver­si­on Tracking coo­kie via your web brow­ser under user set­tings. If you do this, you will 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 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.

To review more detail­ed infor­ma­ti­on about Goog­le AdWords and Goog­le Con­ver­si­on Tracking, plea­se con­sult the Data Pri­va­cy Poli­ci­es of Goog­le at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

You can set up your brow­ser in such a man­ner that you will be noti­fied any­ti­me coo­kies are pla­ced and you can per­mit coo­kies only in cer­tain cases or exclu­de the accep­t­ance of coo­kies in cer­tain instan­ces or in gene­ral and you can also acti­va­te the auto­ma­tic dele­ti­on of coo­kies upon clo­sing of the brow­ser. If you deac­ti­va­te coo­kies, the func­tions of this web­site may be limi­ted.

Face­book Pixel

To mea­su­re our con­ver­si­on rates, our web­site uses the visi­tor acti­vi­ty pixel of Face­book, Face­book Inc., 1601 S. Cali­for­nia Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Face­book”).

This tool allows the tracking of page visi­tors after they have been lin­ked to the web­site of the pro­vi­der after cli­cking on a Face­book ad. This makes it pos­si­ble to ana­ly­se the effec­ti­ve­ness of Face­book ads for sta­tis­ti­cal and mar­ket rese­arch pur­po­ses and to opti­mi­ze future adver­ti­sing cam­pai­gns.

For us as the ope­ra­tors of this web­site, the collec­ted data is anony­mous. We are not in a posi­ti­on to arri­ve at any con­clu­si­ons as to the iden­ti­ty of users. Howe­ver, Face­book archi­ves the infor­ma­ti­on and pro­ces­ses it, so that it is pos­si­ble to make a con­nec­tion to the respec­ti­ve user pro­fi­le and Face­book is in a posi­ti­on to use the data for its own pro­mo­tio­nal pur­po­ses in com­pli­an­ce with the Face­book Data Usa­ge Poli­cy. This enab­les Face­book to dis­play ads on Face­book pages as well as in loca­ti­ons out­side of Face­book. We as the ope­ra­tor of this web­site have no con­trol over the use of such data.

The use of Face­book Pixel is based on Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The ope­ra­tor of the web­site has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in effec­ti­ve adver­ti­sing cam­pai­gns, which also inclu­de social media.

In Facebook’s Data Pri­va­cy Poli­ci­es, you will find addi­tio­nal infor­ma­ti­on about the pro­tec­tion of your pri­va­cy at: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

You also have the opti­on to deac­ti­va­te the remar­ke­ting func­tion “Cus­tom Audi­en­ces” in the ad set­tings sec­tion under  https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen. To do this, you first have to log into Face­book.

If you do not have a Face­book account, you can deac­ti­va­te any user based adver­ti­sing by Face­book on the web­site of the Euro­pean Inter­ac­ti­ve Digi­tal Adver­ti­sing Alli­an­ce: http://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/.

  1. News­let­ter

News­let­ter data

If you would like to sub­scri­be to the news­let­ter offe­red on this web­site, we will need from you an e‑mail address as well as infor­ma­ti­on that allow us to veri­fy that you are the owner of the e‑mail address pro­vi­ded and con­sent to the rece­i­pt of the news­let­ter. No fur­ther data shall be collec­ted or shall be collec­ted only on a vol­un­ta­ry basis. We shall use such data only for the sen­ding of the reques­ted infor­ma­ti­on and shall not share such data with any third par­ties.

The pro­ces­sing of the infor­ma­ti­on ent­e­red into the news­let­ter sub­scrip­ti­on form shall occur exclu­si­ve­ly on the basis of your con­sent (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR). You may revo­ke the con­sent you have given to the archi­ving of data, the e‑mail address and the use of this infor­ma­ti­on for the sen­ding of the news­let­ter at any time, for instance by cli­cking on the „Unsub­scri­be“ link in the news­let­ter. This shall be without pre­ju­di­ce to the law­ful­ness of any data pro­ces­sing tran­sac­tions that have taken place to date.

The data you archi­ve with us for the pur­po­se of the news­let­ter sub­scrip­ti­on shall be archi­ved by us until you unsub­scri­be from the news­let­ter. Once you can­cel your sub­scrip­ti­on to the news­let­ter, the data shall be dele­ted. This shall not affect data we have been archi­ving for other pur­po­ses.

Mail­Chimp

This web­site uses the ser­vices of Mail­Chimp to send out its news­let­ters. The pro­vi­der is the Rocket Sci­ence Group LLC, 675 Pon­ce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlan­ta, GA 30308, USA.

Among other things, Mail­Chimp is a ser­vice that can be deploy­ed to orga­ni­se and ana­ly­se the sen­ding of news­let­ters. Whenever you enter data for the pur­po­se of sub­scrib­ing to a news­let­ter (e.g. your e‑mail address), the infor­ma­ti­on is stored on Mail­Chimp ser­vers in the United Sta­tes.

Mail­Chimp is in pos­ses­si­on of a cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on that is in com­pli­an­ce with the “EU-US-Pri­va­cy-Shield.” The “Pri­va­cy-Shield” is a com­pact bet­ween the Euro­pean Uni­on (EU) and the United Sta­tes of Ame­ri­ca (USA) that aims to war­rant the com­pli­an­ce with Euro­pean data pro­tec­tion stan­dards in the United Sta­tes.

With the assi­s­tance of the Mail­Chimp tool, we can ana­ly­se the per­for­mance of our news­let­ter cam­pai­gns. If you open an e‑mail that has been sent through the Mail­Chimp tool, a file that has been inte­gra­ted into the e‑mail (a so-cal­led web-beacon) con­nects to MailChimp’s ser­vers in the United Sta­tes. As a result, it can be deter­mi­ned whe­ther a news­let­ter mes­sa­ge has been ope­ned and which links the reci­pi­ent pos­si­b­ly cli­cked on. Tech­ni­cal infor­ma­ti­on is also recor­ded at that time (e.g. the time of access, the IP address, type of brow­ser and ope­ra­ting sys­tem). This infor­ma­ti­on can­not be allo­ca­ted to the respec­ti­ve news­let­ter reci­pi­ent. Their sole pur­po­se is the per­for­mance of sta­tis­ti­cal ana­ly­ses of news­let­ter cam­pai­gns. The results of such ana­ly­ses can be used to tailor future news­let­ters to the inte­rests of their reci­pi­ents more effec­tively.

If you do not want to per­mit an ana­ly­sis by Mail­Chimp, you must unsub­scri­be from the news­let­ter. We pro­vi­de a link for you to do this in every news­let­ter mes­sa­ge. Moreo­ver, you can also unsub­scri­be from the news­let­ter right on the web­site.

The data is pro­ces­sed based on your con­sent (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR).  You may revo­ke any con­sent you have given at any time by unsub­scrib­ing from the news­let­ter. This shall be without pre­ju­di­ce to the law­ful­ness of any data pro­ces­sing tran­sac­tions that have taken place pri­or to your revo­ca­ti­on.

The data you archi­ve with us for the pur­po­se of the news­let­ter sub­scrip­ti­on shall be archi­ved by us until you unsub­scri­be from the news­let­ter. Once you can­cel your sub­scrip­ti­on to the news­let­ter, the data shall be dele­ted from our ser­vers as well as tho­se of Mail­Chimp. This shall not affect data we have been archi­ving for other pur­po­ses.

Exe­cu­ti­on of a con­tract data pro­ces­sing agree­ment

We have exe­cu­t­ed a so-cal­led “Data Pro­ces­sing Agree­ment” with Mail­Chimp, in which we man­da­te that Mail­Chimp under­ta­kes to pro­tect the data of our cus­to­mers and to refrain from sharing it with third par­ties.

  1. 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.

YOU HAVE THE OPTION TO OBJECT TO THIS STORAGE/RETENTION OF YOUR DATA IF YOU HAVE LEGITIMATE INTERESTS TO DO SO THAT OUTWEIGH OUR INTERESTS.

Once the reten­ti­on peri­od has expi­red, the data will be dele­ted, unless we are sub­ject to any other sta­tu­to­ry reten­ti­on obli­ga­ti­ons or if any other legal grounds exist to con­ti­nue to store the data. If it should be fore­see­ab­le that the reten­ti­on of your data will be necessa­ry after the reten­ti­on peri­od has expi­red (e.g. due to immi­nent or pen­ding liti­ga­ti­on), the data shall not be dele­ted until the data have beco­me irrele­vant.
