A cookie consists of a name and a value.

2. First-party and third-party cookies

There are both first-party cookies and third-party cookies. First-party cookies are created directly by our site, third-party cookies are created by partner sites or their tools/plug-ins/services (e.g. Google Analytics). Each cookie is unique because each cookie stores different data. The expiration time of a cookie also varies from a few minutes to a few years.

Collection of personal data in the context of an application

  1. Purpose and legal basis of the processing

We process your personal data to establish an employment relationship in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 letter b GDPR. Processing is carried out solely for the purpose of assessing your suitability, competence and professional performance with regard to the position for which you are applying. We will also process your personal data for specific purposes (e.g. for longer storage) if you have given us your consent to data processing in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.

We may be obliged to process your personal data in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c GDPR. There may be various legal obligations to do so (e.g. obligations under the German Commercial Code; the German Fiscal Code; to store tax-relevant data; under the German Social Security Code; under the General Equal Treatment Act; or other relevant regulations).

2. Nature of the categories of data processed

We process personal data that we receive from you in the course of the application process, e.g. through letters of application, curriculum vitae, certificates, correspondence, telephone or oral information.

The following categories of data may be affected:

  • Address data (name, address)
  • Contact details (telephone number, e-mail address)
  • Application data (e.g. certificates, curriculum vitae)

3. Recipients or categories of recipients of the data

Initially, our personnel department and accounting department have access to your data, but also the specialist department of the position for which you have applied. For technical reasons, our administrators and order processors have the possibility to access data processed by IT. They are strictly bound by our instructions and are not allowed to process the data for their own purposes. In certain cases, we may need to disclose your personal data to third parties, such as our bank if you receive a refund or the post office if we communicate with you by letter.

Furthermore, third parties may receive data for certain purposes if this is legally required in the context of your application (e.g. notification to the Federal Employment Agency).

Data is not transferred to bodies in countries outside the European Union (so-called third countries).

4. Duration of data storage

Your personal data will be stored as long as it is necessary to fulfil our contractual and legal obligations in the application process. In the event of a successful application, your personal data will be stored in your personnel file and used to carry out and terminate the employment relationship.

If we are unable to offer you employment, we will continue to process your personal data for up to 6 months after sending the cancellation. In case you agree to the storage of your data beyond the prescribed period, the duration can be correspondingly longer (max. two years).

If the data is no longer required for the fulfilment of contractual or legal obligations, it will be deleted, unless storage is required due to legal retention periods (e.g. to fulfil commercial and tax law retention periods of ten years).

Social Media

1. General Information

We maintain publicly accessible profiles in social networks. You can find the social networks we use in detail below.

Social networks can usually analyze your user behavior comprehensively when you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. like buttons or advertising banners). A visit to our social media profile triggers numerous data protection-relevant processing operations.

2. Personal data

If you are logged in to your social media account and visit our social media profile, the operator of the social media portal can assign this visit to your user account. Your personal data may also be collected even if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portal. In this case, this data is collected, for example, via cookies that are stored on your end device or by recording your IP address.

With the help of this data, the operators of social media portals can create user profiles in which your preferences and interests are stored. In this way, interest-based advertising can be displayed both inside and outside the respective social media profile. If you have an account with the respective social network, interest-based advertising can be displayed on all devices on which you are or were logged in.

Please also note that we cannot track all processing on the social media portals. Depending on the provider, further processing may therefore be carried out by the operators of the social media portals. For details, please refer to the terms of use and privacy policy of the respective social media portals.

3. Reference to risks

We point out that user data may be processed by the respective providers outside the European Union. This can result in risks for the users, because the enforcement of the users' rights could be made more difficult. With regard to US providers who offer appropriate safeguards of a secure level of data protection, e.g. through EU standard contractual clauses, we would like to point out that they thereby undertake to comply with EU data protection standards.

4. Purpose of processing/legal basis

Our own processing of personal data on our social media sites is based on our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR, in order to provide information about our offerings, make articles more attractive, find the right time for publication, and communicate with the customers, interested parties and users active there. We have no influence on possible further processing by the providers.

The legal basis for the setting of the above-mentioned cookies is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR. You will find details on this above under the item "Cookies" or under "Social Media Plugins".

5. Joint Controllership

If you visit one of our social media profiles (e.g. Facebook), we are jointly responsible („joint controllers“) with the operator of the social media platform for the data processing operations triggered during this visit.

Please note that despite the joint responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have full control over the data processing operations of the social media portals. Our possibilities depend largely on the corporate policy of the respective provider.

6. Data subjects rights

You can assert your rights against us as well as against the operator of the respective social media portal.

However, we would like to point out that these can be most effectively claimed from the operators. Only the operators have access to the data of the users and can take appropriate measures and provide information directly. Should you nevertheless require assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

7. Storage duration

The data collected directly by us via the social media profile will be deleted from our systems as soon as the purpose for storing it no longer applies, you request us to delete it, revoke your consent for storage or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies. Stored cookies remain on your end device until you delete them. Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

We have no influence on the storage period of your data, which is stored by the operators of social networks for their own purposes. For details, please contact the operators of the social networks directly (e.g. in their privacy policy, see below).

8. Data protection of the providers

For a detailed presentation of the respective forms of processing and the possibilities of objection (opt-out), we refer to the data protection declarations and information provided by the providers of the respective social media networks, over which we have no influence and which apply when the respective sites are accessed.
