Personal data
We only collect personal data when you send us data e.g. as part of a job application and then only to the extent of the data transmitted to us. This data will of course be treated confidentially and only used for the original reason and purpose. The data will not be passed on to third parties as a matter of principle unless this is legally required or permissible, or you have given us your consent or an official order obliges us to do so.

If you contact us by e-mail, the e-mails and related data will be stored by us in our mail system. The legal basis for this is either Article 6 (1) (a), (b) or (c) GDPR.

The e-mails themselves are not encrypted.

Recruitment privacy policy

In the case of job applications, we process the data sent to us for the purpose of the job application process. The legal basis for this is Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR.

The recipients of the data are solely the persons involved in the recruitment process in our company. Should your job application be rejected, your data will be stored for 6 months after the completion of the job application process. This storage period results from the possible assertion of claims under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

We can agree another storage period with your permission. The legal basis for this is Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service operated by Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics also uses cookies that are stored on your computer when you visit our website and that enable an analysis of the use of this website and make it more user-friendly and effective. The information generated by the cookies about your use of this website including your IP address is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

We have activated the IP anonymisation feature on our website. The IP addresses of users is shortened within European Union member states or contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. This shortened version removes the link to the person in your IP address. In the context of the agreement for contract data processing that we have agreed with Google Inc., the latter uses the collected information to draw up an analysis of website use and website activity and provides services associated with Internet usage. You can prevent the storage of cookies on your device by adjusting the settings in your browser. We cannot guarantee that you will be able to access all the functions of this website without limitation if your browser does not allow cookies. You can also use a browser plug-in to prevent the information collected through cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to Google Inc. and being used by Google Inc. The following link takes you to the corresponding plug in:

Alternatively, you can prevent Google Analytics collecting data about you within this website by simply clicking on this link (Deactivate Google Analytics). By clicking on the above link, you can download an “opt-out cookie”. Your browser will therefore generally need to allow the storage of cookies for this purpose. If you regularly delete your cookies, you will need to click on the link whenever you visit this website.

Integration of further services and content of third-party providers

It may be that the content or services of third-party providers such as town plans or fonts from other websites are integrated within our website. The integration of the content of third-party providers always assumes that the third-party providers use the IP address of users as they could not send the content to the browser of the users without the IP address. The IP address is therefore necessary for the display of this content. Furthermore, the providers of third-party content can set their own cookies and process the data of users for their own purposes. In doing so, they can create usage profiles of the users from the processed data. We will use this content by ideally minimising and avoiding data and as far as data security is concerned, will also select reliable third-party providers.

The following list provides an overview of third-party providers and their content as well as links to their privacy statements which contain further information on the processing of data and, as already mentioned here to some extent, possibilities of opting out:

External fonts of Google, Inc., (“Google Fonts“). The integration of Google fonts takes place by way of server call to Google (normally in the USA). Privacy statement:, Opt-Out:

Maps available from the “Google Maps” service of the third-party provider Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Privacy statement:, Opt-Out:
Videos from the “YouTube” platform of the third-party provider Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Privacy statement:, Opt-Out:

We reserve the right to adapt our privacy statement to the valid version of the privacy laws as amended from time to time.
