Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.

We use the following terms in this data protection declaration:

  1. Personal data

5. Legal basis for processing

Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.

If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract to which you are a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are required to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services.

If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, for example to fulfill tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. c GDPR.

In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were injured and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. The processing would then be based on Article 6 (1) (d) GDPR.

Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. We are particularly permitted to carry out such processing operations because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if you are a customer of our company (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).

6. Transmission of data to third parties

A transfer of your personal data to third parties for purposes other than those listed below does not take place.

We will only pass on your personal data to third parties if:

  1. You have given your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit.
  2. the transfer according to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit.f DS-GVO is permissible to safeguard our legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not disclosing your data,
  3. in the event that there is a legal obligation for disclosure in accordance with Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Clause 1 lit. c GDPR, and
  4. this is legally permissible and required according to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b GDPR for the processing of contractual relationships with you

7. Technology

7.1 SSL / TLS encryption

To ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login data or contact requests that you send to us as the operator, this site uses an SSL or. TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that in the address line of the browser there is an "https: //" instead of "http: //" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

We use this technology to protect your transmitted data.

If you only use our website for informational purposes, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect data that your browser transmits to our server (in so-called "server log files").

  5. the date and time of access to the website,
  6. an internet protocol address (IP address),
  7. the internet service provider of the accessing system.

When using this general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about your person. Rather, this information is needed to

  3. to ensure the long-term functionality of our IT systems and the technology of our website and
  4. to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber attack.

This collected data and information is therefore statistically and further evaluated by us with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The data in the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

This is particularly the case if an applicant submits relevant application documents to us electronically, for example by e-mail or using a web form on the website. If we conclude an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If we do not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that deletion does not conflict with any other legitimate interests on our part.

In this respect, data processing takes place solely on the basis of our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

10. Sending the newsletter

10.1 Sending newsletters to existing customers

If you have provided us with your e-mail address when purchasing goods or services, we reserve the right to regularly send you offers for goods or services similar to those already purchased from our range by e-mail.

If you initially objected to the use of your e-mail address for this purpose, we will not send you an e-mail. You are entitled to object to the use of your e-mail address for the aforementioned advertising purpose at any time with effect for the future by notifying the person responsible named at the beginning. For this you only have to pay transmission costs according to the basic tariffs. After receipt of your objection, the use of your e-mail address for advertising purposes will be stopped immediately.

10.2 Advertising Newsletter

On our website, you are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company's newsletter. The input mask used for this shows which personal data are transmitted to us when ordering the newsletter.

We inform our customers and business partners about our offers at regular intervals by means of a newsletter. You can only receive our company's newsletter if

  1. You have a valid email address and
  2. You have registered to receive the newsletter.

For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail using the double opt-in procedure will be sent to the e-mail address you entered for the first time for sending the newsletter. This confirmation email is used to check whether you, as the owner of the email address, have authorized receipt of the newsletter.

When you register for the newsletter, we also save the IP address assigned by your Internet service provider (ISP) for the IT system you used at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration.

Furthermore, these are processed for the purpose of compliance with statutory provisions and regulations, such as labor law, tax and social law and international sanction regulations (e.g. EU anti-terrorism directive).

10.3 Newsletter tracking

Our newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in such e-mails that are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This enables a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns to be carried out. Using the embedded tracking pixel, the company can recognize whether and when you opened an email and which links in the email you called up.

Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by us in order to optimize the newsletter dispatch and to better adapt the content of future newsletters to your interests. These personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Affected persons are entitled at any time to revoke the relevant separate declaration of consent given via the double opt-in procedure. After you withdraw your consent, we will delete this personal data. We automatically interpret unsubscribing from receiving the newsletter as a revocation.

Such an evaluation is carried out in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interests in the display of personalized advertising, market research and / or the needs-based design of our website.
