If you contact us to send us your application as an employee*, e.g. by e-mail or via a contact form, the data you provide (e.g. name, e-mail address, desired location, application documents, etc.), your message and the application documents submitted will be processed exclusively for the purpose of processing and handling your application request.


The legal basis for data processing is primarily § 26 BDSG. According to this, the processing of data that is required in connection with the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship is permissible.


Should the data be necessary for legal prosecution after completion of the application process, data processing may be carried out to safeguard our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 (1) f) DSGVO, namely for the assertion and/or defense of claims.

If we do not make you a job offer, you have the option of being included in our pool of applicants. If you are accepted, all documents and information from your application will be transferred to the applicant pool in order to contact you in the event of suitable vacancies.

In order to prevent misuse, we will send you an e-mail after your registration in which we ask you to confirm your registration (double opt-in procedure).

This serves both your interest and our interest in complying with legal requirements when sending newsletters (legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO). The storage in the blacklist is not limited in time. You can object to the storage if your interests outweigh our legitimate interest.

Google Analytics


We use the Google Analytics tracking tool from Google on our website. We use Google Analytics to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the activities within this website and to provide other services related to the use of the website in order to improve user-friendliness.


When Google Analytics is used, interactions of website visitors are primarily recorded and systematically evaluated with the help of cookies.


We use Google Analytics with the extension "anonymizeIp()". This shortens IP addresses within the member states of the EU or EEA. If a transmission to Google's servers in the USA takes place, the full IP address is only transmitted in exceptional cases and shortened there. A direct reference to a person is therefore generally excluded. In particular, an assignment to the called computer or terminal of the website visitor is no longer possible.


The following data is processed through the use of Google Analytics:

 

  • 3 bytes of the IP address of the called system of the website visitor (anonymized IP address),
  • the website called up,
  • the website from which the user reached the accessed page of our website (referrer),
  • the subpages accessed from the website,
  • the time spent on the website
  • the frequency with which the website is accessed.

Google states that it will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

We use Google Ads, an online advertising program from Google, on our website. This involves so-called conversion tracking. If you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie is set.

After clicking on a Facebook ad or when visiting our website, a cookie is stored on your end device using the pixel on our website. The cookie processes data about whether you arrived at our website via a Facebook ad and allows us to analyze the user's behavior until the purchase is completed. This allows us to track the success rate of our Facebook advertising campaigns.

Via the Facebook pixel integrated on our website, a direct connection to Facebook's servers is established when you visit our website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) is transmitted to Facebook in the USA.
