What Personal Data do we collect and what is the data used for?

Definition of Terms

Personal data is information about a specific or identifiable natural person. A determinable natural person is a person who can be identified directly or indirectly by means of a characteristic. A characteristic may be a name, an identification number, location data or an online identifier or specific information on the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person. Not personal data is data that is anonymous or aggregated and can no longer be used to identify a particular natural person, whether in combination with other data or otherwise.

Website

The use of our website is possible without providing personal data. However, every time a website is accessed, our Internet service provider collects a series of general data and information that is temporarily stored in the log files of the web server. For example, the browser types and versions used are recorded, as well as the operating system used by the accessing system, the web page from which an accessing system accesses our website (called referrer), the sub-web pages accessed via an accessing system on our website, the date and time of access to the web page, an Internet Protocol (IP) address, the accessing system's Internet service provider, and other similar data and information used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When processing this general data and information no conclusions are drawn on the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to properly deliver the contents of our website and to provide law enforcement authorities with the information needed for law enforcement in the event of a cyberattack. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by an affected person.

Contact Form, E-Mail Inquiries

If you send us inquiries via the contact form on our website or by e-mail or in any other way, your details, including the contact details provided by you, will be stored in order to process the request and in case of follow-up questions. This information is always provided by you on a voluntary basis. We will not share your information without your consent. Please note that data transmission over the Internet (for example, when communicating via e-mail) may have security vulnerabilities. A complete protection of data from access by third parties is therefore not possible.

Newsletter

If you would like to receive our free newsletter, we need an e-mail address from you, in addition, the IP address of the calling computer as well as the date and time of registration are stored during the initial registration. You can optionally enter your first and last name for personalized addressing. Further data is not collected. We use this data exclusively for the newsletter dispatch and do not pass it on to third parties. You may revoke your consent to the storage of data, the e-mail address and its use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the corresponding link in the newsletter.

For these reasons, we can contact you by email, telephone or post.

Applicants

We process personal data of applicants for the processing of application procedures. The processing is usually done by electronic means, e. g. if an applicant submits application documents by e-mail to us. If we conclude a contract of employment with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of the employment relationship in compliance with the legal requirements.

Do we pass on Personal Data?
