GENERAL INFORMATION ON DATA PROCESSING

a. Scope & purpose of processing personal data

As a matter of principle, we process your personal data as a user of this website only to the extent that this is necessary for the provision of a functional website and our contents and services. Your personal data will only be processed with your consent for the intended purpose, unless data processing is permitted by law even without obtaining prior consent. The purposes of the processing result from the processing activities described in detail below.

b. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain your consent for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 a) EU Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis. If the processing of your data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, Art. 6 para. 1 b) DSGVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations which are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. If processing of your personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which we are subject, Art. 6 para. 1 c) DSGVO serves as the legal basis. In the event that vital interests of you or another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 d) DSGVO serves as the legal basis. If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and if your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms do not outweigh the former, Art. 6 para. 1 f) DPA serves as the legal basis for the processing.

c. Data deletion and storage period

Your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for which it was stored no longer applies. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by law or other binding legal regulations. Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned legal provisions expires, unless it is necessary to continue storing the data in order to conclude or fulfil a contract.

Google Conversion Tag

We use the online advertising program "Google Ads" on our website and, in this context, conversion tracking (analysis of visitor activity). Google Conversion Tracking is an analysis service of Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google").

If you are ordinarily resident in the European Economic Area or Switzerland, Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland) is the data controller. Google Ireland Limited is therefore the company affiliated with Google which is responsible for processing your data and for ensuring compliance with applicable data protection laws. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is placed on your computer. These cookies have a limited validity, do not contain any personal information and are therefore not personally identifiable. If you visit certain pages on our site and the cookie hasn't expired, Google and we can tell that you clicked on the ad and were redirected to that page. Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. As a result, there is no way that cookies can be tracked across the websites of ads customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to compile conversion statistics. This tells us the total number of users who have clicked on one of our ads and been redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, we do not receive information that personally identifies users. Your information may be transferred to the USA. Google has certified itself under the US-EU Privacy Shield Agreement and is committed to complying with the European Data Protection Directives.

You can disable personalized advertising for you in Google's advertising settings. You can find instructions on how to do this at https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=de. You can find more information and Google's privacy policy at https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/.

Tags are small code elements that are used, among other things, to measure traffic and visitor behavior, to measure the impact of online advertising and social channels, to set up remarketing and targeting, and to test and optimize websites. We use the Tag Manager for the Google services Google Analytics and GA Audience. If you have deactivated the tag, the Google Tag Manager will take this deactivation into account.

This may require the respective third party providers to be aware of your IP address, as without the IP address they would not be able to send the Content to your browser. The IP address is therefore necessary for the delivery and display of this content. The third party providers may also use so-called "pixel tags" (non-visible graphic files, also known as "web beacons") for statistical or marketing purposes. The "pixel tags" enable the user behaviour on this website to be analysed. The pseudonymous information may be stored in cookies on your device and may contain, for example, technical information about visiting times, browser and operating system, previously visited website and other information about the use of our website. There is no link to similar information from other sources. If you do not want pixel tags to record your usage behavior, you can object to the data collection at any time

The plug-in establishes a direct connection between your browser and the LinkedIn server. LinkedIn thereby receives information that you have visited our website with your IP address. In addition, LinkedIn is then able to track your visit to our website - if you are logged in to your LinkedIn account - to you and your account. We would like to point out that we have no knowledge of the content of the (personal) data transmitted or how LinkedIn uses it. For further information, please see the LinkedIn privacy policy at: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy

APPLICANT DATA

We process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. The processing can also take place electronically.
