There is a transfer of data to third countries outside the European Union or the European Economic Area. Information we collect from you could be processed in the United States or other third countries. Some third countries, such as the United States, have not currently received an adequacy decision from the European Union under Article 45 of the GDPR, which means that your data may not receive the same level of protection there as it does under the GDPR.
We store your personal data only as long as it is necessary to achieve the purpose of processing. We store your data if you have consented to the processing at most until you revoke your consent, if we need the data to perform a contract at most as long as the contractual relationship with you exists, if we use the data on the basis of a legitimate interest at most as long as your interest in deletion or anonymisation does not prevail.
In addition, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the person responsible is subject. In these cases, the data is deleted when a storage or retention period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires. Among others, the provisions of the HGB and the AO apply.
We store applicant documents for a period of six months if the application does not lead to an employment relationship and no further storage has been agreed. This period results from possible lawsuits against the responsible person according to the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
We store server log files for a maximum of seven days.
As a data subject, you may have the right under applicable data protection law to:

Limitation of processing, pursuant to Art. 18 GDPR,

You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. We shall no longer process the personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If your personal data is processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.
You also have the right to withdraw consent to the processing of personal data at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.
Pursuant to Article 77 of the GDPR, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your place of residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR or other data protection provisions. This right of appeal is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.

Unless expressly stated at the time of collection, the provision of data is not required or obligatory. Such an obligation may result from legal requirements or contractual regulations. Failure to provide required personal data generally results in a contract not being able to be concluded and/or in us not being able to provide a requested service. Our employees will clarify on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contract or necessary for the conclusion of a contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences of not providing the personal data would be.
We do not use automated decision-making mechanisms, including profiling, that have legal effect on the data subject or similarly significantly affect the data subject.
We take organisational, contractual and technical security measures in accordance with the state of the art to ensure that the provisions of the data protection laws are complied with and thus to protect the data processed by us against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against access by unauthorised persons. The security measures include in particular the encrypted transmission of data between your browser and our server.
Similar technologies are technical aids that enable, for example, the identification of visitors and users or the evaluation of the use of our website without being a cookie, such as tracking pixels or LocalStorage.
Cookies are text files that are stored in the internet browser or by the internet browser on the user's computer system. When a user calls up a website, a cookie may be stored on the user's operating system. Cookies contain a characteristic string of characters that can uniquely identify the browser when the website is called up again, and are stored on your end device either temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies), for a certain period of time (temporary cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies).
Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Temporary cookies are deleted after a certain period of time. Permanent cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them yourself or until they are automatically deleted by your web browser.
Permanent cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them yourself or until they are automatically deleted by your web browser.
Cookies and similar technologies from third-party companies may also be stored or triggered on your terminal device when you visit our website (third-party cookies). These enable us or you to use certain services of the third-party company (e.g. cookies to store information about the source from which a user has come to our website).
Technically necessary cookies and technologies are those without which our website cannot function and be used. This category only includes cookies and technologies that provide basic functionality, display and security features of the website or consent to technically unnecessary cookies and technologies (cookie banners). Technically necessary cookies and technologies can be set without the user's consent.
Non-essential cookies and technologies are all cookies and technologies that are not necessary for the pure functionality, presentation and security of the website. This includes function cookies, which for example enable a customer chat, and in particular such cookies and technologies that serve the collection and processing of personal data of the user, such as statistics, performance, marketing and analysis cookies. Non-essential cookies and technologies (for example, cookies for marketing, advertising, statistical, performance or analytics purposes) require your prior, informed consent.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data when technically necessary cookies and technologies are used is the legitimate interest of the website operator in a technically error-free, secure and visually appealing provision of the website and its functions, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legal basis for the storage and the processing of personal data in the case of the use of technically unnecessary first-party cookies and in the case of the use of any third-party cookies is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR and § 25 TTDSG.
You can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies by changing the settings in your internet browser. Depending on the browser used, you may also be able to set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies, that cookies are only permitted in individual cases, that the acceptance of cookies is excluded for certain cases or in general and/or that cookies are automatically deleted when the browser is closed. Cookies that have already been stored can also be deleted at any time via the browser settings. However, if cookies are deactivated for the website, it may no longer be possible to use all the functions of the website to their full extent.
We use the services of CookieHub. Personal data may be disclosed in the process. We use these services to allow you to refuse or accept our cookies.
We also advertise our presence on the following social networks on our website:
The integration takes place via a text link or a linked graphic of the network. The use of these links prevents the automatic establishment of a connection to the respective server of the social network when a website with a social media application is called up. The user is only forwarded to the service of the social network by clicking on the corresponding link.
After the user has been forwarded, information about the user is collected by the social network. It cannot be ruled out that the data collected in this way will be processed in the USA. The responsible party has no influence on the processing that takes place under the responsibility of the respective social network.
The data processed in this context is initially personal data such as IP address, date, time and page visited. If the user is also logged into his or her user account of the respective network during this time, the network operator may be able to assign the collected information of the user's specific visit to the user's personal account. If the user interacts via a "Share" button of the respective network, this information may be stored in the user's personal user account and may be published. If the user wants to prevent the collected information from being directly assigned to his/her user account, he/she must log out of his/her account before clicking on the graphic link provided on our website. In addition, it is possible to configure the respective user account accordingly.
The legal basis for the integration of the links on our website is our legitimate interest in the promotion and visibility of our social media presences, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. A conflicting interest on your part is not apparent.
Please note: If you click on the respective link, you will be redirected to the website of the relevant social network. As a result of this redirection, your personal data may be transferred to servers in the USA despite the fact that any network subsidiaries are located in Europe. The United States of America is currently classified as an unsafe third country, i.e. as a third country with regard to which neither an adequacy decision pursuant to Article 45 of the GDPR exists nor a comparable level of protection can be assumed. With the transmission of your data, both the network operator and, if applicable, US authorities have access to the transmitted data.
The respective network operator may link your data with other data, such as your personal accounts, the usage data of other devices and all other data that the respective network operator has about you, and may also pass on your personal data to third parties. In addition, U.S. authorities may gain access and process your data without notice or notification to you (during and even after the processing is completed) or without providing you with comparable legal remedies and data subject rights. Unfortunately, we have no influence on the processing by the respective network operator and US authorities.
Further information on the respective data protection provisions of the social networks can be found under the following links.
