Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your consent. You can revoke an already given consent at any time according to Art. 7 para. 3 DSGVO. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

If you wish to exercise your right of revocation or objection, an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org is sufficient.
Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of breaches of the GDPR, data subjects shall have a right of appeal pursuant to Art. 77 GDPR to a supervisory authority, in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged breach. The right of appeal exists without prejudice to other administrative or judicial.
Right of data portability

In particular, you can request information about the processing purposes, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the planned storage period, the existence of a right to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing or objection, the existence of a right of complaint, the origin of your data if it was not collected by us, as well as the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, and, if applicable, meaningful information about its details.
In accordance with Art. 16 DSGVO, you have the right to demand the immediate correction of incorrect or completion of your personal data stored by us.
You have the right to request the deletion of your personal data stored by us in accordance with Art. 17 DSGVO, unless the processing is necessary for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal

- If the processing of your personal data happened/is happening unlawfully, you may request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or enforce legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
If you have lodged an objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) DSGVO, a balancing of your and our interests must be carried out. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data may – apart from being stored – only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise, or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.
5. Data collection on this website
Our Internet pages use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files and do not cause any damage to your terminal device. They are stored either temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies) on your end device. Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them yourself or an automatic solution is provided by your web browser.
In some cases, cookies from third-party companies may also be stored on your terminal device when you enter our site (third-party cookies). These enable us or you to use certain services of the third-party company.
Cookies have various functions. Many cookies are technically necessary, as certain website functions would not work without them (e.g. the display of videos). Other cookies are used to evaluate user behaviour or display advertising.
Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions you have requested are stored based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. If a corresponding consent has been requested (e.g. consent to store cookies), the processing is based exclusively on Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO; the consent can be revoked at any time.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. When deactivating cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.
The cookie settings can be managed under the following links for the respective browsers:
You can also manage cookies of many companies and functions used for advertising individually. To do this, use the corresponding user tools, available at
Most browsers also offer a so-called “do-not-track” function. When this feature is enabled, the respective browser tells advertising networks, websites, and applications that you do not want to be “tracked” for behavioural advertising and the like
For information and instructions on how to edit this feature, depending on your browser provider, see the links below:
If cookies are used by third-party companies or for analysis purposes, we will inform you about this separately within the framework of this data protection declaration
Change cookie settings
You can revoke or change your cookie settings at any time. To do so, call up the cookie settings again via the small blue field on the right at the bottom of the screen.
When you visit our website, it is technically necessary for data to be transmitted to our web server via your Internet browser. The following data is recorded during an ongoing connection for communication between your internet browser and our web server:
- Date and time of the request
- Name of the requested file
- Page from which the file was requested
- Access status
- Web browser and operating system used
- (Complete) IP address of the requesting computer
- Amount of data transferred
We collect the listed data to be able to guarantee a smooth connection setup of the website and a technically error-free provision of our services. The processing of this data is necessary to visit the website. The log files are used to evaluate system security and stability as well as for administrative purposes. The legal basis for the processing of the data is our legitimate interest in the protection and functionality of our website pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO.
For reasons of technical security, in particular to defend against attempted attacks on our web server, we store this data for a short period of time. After 60 days at the latest, the data is anonymized by shortening the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a link to the individual user.
SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Access to and storage of information in terminal equipment
By using our website, information (e.g. IP address) may be accessed or stored (e.g. cookies) in your terminal equipment. This access or storage may involve further processing of personal data within the meaning of the GDPR.
In cases where such access to information or such storage of information is absolutely necessary for the technically error-free provision of our services, this is done on the basis of Section 25 (1) Sentence 1, (2) No. 2 TTDSG
In cases where such a process serves other purposes (e.g. the needs-based design of our website), this will only be carried out on the basis of Section 25 (1) TTDSG with your consent in accordance with Article 6 (1) a DSGVO. The consent can be revoked at any time for the future. The requirements of the DSGVO and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) apply to the processing of your personal data.
For more information on the processing of your personal data and the relevant legal bases in this context, please refer to the following sections on the specific processing activities on our website.
Data sharing and recipient
A transfer of your personal data to third parties does not take place, unless,
- if you have given your consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO,
- the disclosure is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in the non-disclosure of your data,
- if there is a legal obligation for the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. c DSGVO, and
- insofar as this is necessary for the processing of contractual relationships with you according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DSGVO.
In addition, we use external service providers for the processing of our services, which we have carefully selected, commissioned in writing and with whom we have concluded order processing agreements in accordance with Art. 28 DSGVO, if necessary. These are bound by our instructions and are regularly monitored by us. These are, among others, service providers for hosting, sending emails and maintenance and care of our IT systems, etc. The service providers will not disclose this data to third parties.
We take appropriate technical and organizational measures in accordance with Article 32 of the GDPR, considering the state of the art, the costs of implementation and the nature, scope, circumstances, and purposes of the processing, as well as the varying likelihood and severity of the risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk. This website uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content.
Duration of the storage of personal data
The duration of the storage of personal data is measured by the relevant statutory retention periods (e.g. from commercial law and tax law). After expiry of the respective period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted. If data is required for the fulfilment or initiation of a contract or if we have a legitimate interest in continuing to store it, the data will be deleted when it is no longer required for these purposes, or you have exercised your right of revocation or objection.
The provision of personal data for the decision on the conclusion of a contract, the performance of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures is voluntary. However, we can only make the decision in the context of contractual measures if you provide such personal data that is required for the conclusion of the contract, the fulfilment of the contract or pre-contractual measures.
Automated decision making
Automated decision making or profiling according to Art. 22 DSGVO does not take place.
Subject to change
We reserve the right to adapt or update this data protection declaration, if necessary, in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations. So, we can adapt it to the current legal requirements and take into account changes to our services, e.g. when introducing new services. The current version applies to your visit
Request by e-mail, phone, or fax
If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your inquiry including all resulting personal data (name, inquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not pass on this data without your permission.
The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO, if your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO) and/or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO), as we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of requests addressed to us.
The data you send to us via contact requests will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular, legal retention periods – remain unaffected.
Social networks (YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Xing) are only integrated on our website as a link to the corresponding services. After clicking on the embedded text/image link, you will be redirected to the page of the respective provider. User information will only be transferred to the respective provider after the forwarding. For information on the handling of your personal data when using these websites, please refer to the respective data protection provisions of the providers you use.
6. Appearances in social media
In the following, you will find information on the handling of your data that is collected through your use of our social media presences on social networks and platforms. Your data will be processed in accordance with the statutory regulations.
If the data you provide to us is also or exclusively processed by Facebook, Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour Dublin 2, Ireland, is the controller for data processing within the meaning of the GDPR in addition to us or in our place. For this purpose, we have concluded an agreement with Facebook pursuant to Art. 26 DSGVO on joint responsibility for the processing of data (Controller Addendum). This agreement specifies the data processing operations for which we or Facebook are responsible when you visit our Facebook fan page. You can view this agreement at the following link: https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum
Since personal data is transferred by Facebook to the USA to Meta Platforms Inc. among others, further protection mechanisms are required to ensure the data protection level of the GDPR. For this purpose, the provider uses standard data protection clauses in accordance with Art. 46 (2) lit. c DSGVO. These oblige the recipient of the data in the USA to process the data in accordance with the level of protection in Europe. In cases where this cannot be ensured even by this contractual extension, we endeavour to obtain additional regulations and commitments from the recipient in the USA.
If you as a visitor to the site would like to exercise your rights (information, correction, deletion, restriction, data portability, complaint to the supervisory authority, objection or revocation), you can contact both Facebook and us.
You can adjust your advertising settings independently in your user account. To do so, click on the following link and log in:

Data processing for statistical purposes by means of page insights
Facebook provides so-called page insights for our Facebook fan page: https://www.facebook.com/business/a/page/page-insights. These are aggregated data that provide information about how people interact with our site. Page Insights may be based on personal data collected in connection with an individual’s visit to or interaction with our Page and in connection with content provided. Please be aware of what personal data you share with us through Facebook. Your data may be processed for market research and advertising purposes even if you are not logged into Facebook or do not have a Facebook account. For example, user profiles can be created from the usage behaviour and resulting interests of the users. The user profiles can in turn be used, for example, to display advertisements within and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. This data collection takes place via cookies that are stored on your terminal device. Furthermore, data that is independent of the devices used by the users may also be stored in the user profiles; in particular, if the users are members of the respective platforms and logged in to them.
The legal basis for the processing is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. Please note that we have no influence on the data collection and further processing by Facebook. As a result, we cannot provide any information about the extent to which, where and for how long the data is stored by Facebook. Furthermore, we cannot make any statements about the extent to which Facebook complies with existing deletion obligations, which evaluations and links are made with the data on the part of Facebook and to whom the data is passed on by Facebook. If you wish to avoid the processing of your personal data by Facebook, please contact us by other means.
Other social media providers
If your personal data is processed by a provider listed below, this provider is the data controller within the meaning of the GDPR. For the assertion of your data subject rights, we point out that these can be asserted most effectively with the respective providers. Only they have access to the data collected from you.

General information on social media platforms
Our data protection officer
General data processing on the social media platforms
Data processing for market research and advertising
As a rule, personal data is processed on the company website for market research and advertising purposes. For this purpose, a cookie is set in your browser, which enables the respective provider to recognize you when you visit a website. By means of the collected data, usage profiles can be created. These are used to display advertisements within and outside the platform that presumably correspond to your interests. Furthermore, data can also be stored in the usage profiles regardless of the devices you use. This is regularly the case if you are a member of the respective platforms and logged in to them.
Data processing when contacting us
We ourselves collect personal data when you contact us, for example, with a contact form or through a messenger service such as Facebook Messenger. Which data is collected depends on the information you provide and the contact data you have provided or released. These are stored by us for the purpose of processing the request and in case of follow-up questions. Under no circumstances will we pass on the data to third parties without your consent. The legal basis for processing the data is our legitimate interest in responding to your request pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO and, if applicable, Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO if your request is aimed at concluding a contract. Your data will be deleted after final processing of your request, provided that this does not conflict with any statutory retention obligations. We assume that processing is complete if it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified.
Data processing for contract management
If your contact via a social network or other platform aims at the conclusion of a contract for the delivery of goods or the provision of services with us, we process your data for the performance of the contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures or for the provision of the requested services. The legal basis for the processing of your data in this case is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO. Your data will be deleted if it is no longer required for the performance of the contract or if it is determined that the pre-contractual measures do not lead to the conclusion of a contract corresponding to the purpose of the contact. Please note, however, that it may be necessary to store personal data of our contractual partners even after the conclusion of the contract in order to comply with contractual or legal obligations.
Data processing based on consent
If you are asked by the respective providers of the platforms for consent to processing for a specific purpose, the legal basis of the processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. a., Art. 7 DSGVO. Consent given can be revoked at any time with effect for the future.
Data sharing and recipients
When visiting and using the platforms listed above, a transfer of personal data to the USA or other third countries outside the EU may occur, which is why further protection mechanisms are required in these cases to ensure the level of data protection of the GDPR. For more information on whether and which suitable guarantees the providers can demonstrate for this, please see the list below.

7. Third-party content
Sending applications (HRworks)
When you apply to us via our application platform (HRworks) or by e-mail, we collect personal data. This includes, in particular, your contact data (such as first and last name, telephone number and e-mail address of the user) as well as other data provided by you regarding your background (e.g., resume, qualifications, degrees and work experience) and your person (e.g., cover letter, personal interests). This may also include special categories of personal data (e.g. information on a severe disability).
As a rule, your personal data is collected directly from you as part of the application process and encrypted during electronic transmission. The primary legal basis for this is Section 26 (1) BDSG. In addition, consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO in conjunction with § 26 Para. 2 BDSG can be used as a data protection permission provision. If the processing of your data is based on consent, you have the right to revoke the consent at any time with effect for the future.
Within our company, only those persons and departments (e.g. Human Resources) have access to your personal data that absolutely need it to carry out the application process or to fulfil our legal obligations. If necessary, your applications will be forwarded to the relevant responsible persons for review. Under no circumstances will your personal data be passed on to third parties without authorization.
Your data relating to an application for a specific job posting will be stored and processed by us during the ongoing application process. After completion of the application process (e.g. in the form of an acceptance or rejection), the application process including all personal data will be deleted from the system no later than six months after completion of the application process. The data of selected applicants will be stored securely for up to 2 years, provided that the applicants have given their consent to this in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO in conjunction with § 26 para. 2 BDSG. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. An informal e-mail to the contact details of the responsible person listed above is sufficient for this purpose. In the event of an acceptance, your application documents will be transferred to the personnel file.
We have concluded an order processing agreement with our service provider HRworks, in which we oblige them to protect our customers’ data and not to pass it on to third parties.
Service provider: HRworks GmbH
Adress: Waldkircher Str. 28, 79106 Freiburg, Germany
This website uses functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO on the basis of the consent given by you.
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. This means that your IP address is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google.
You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set that prevents the collection of your data during future visits to this website: Google Analytics deaktivieren
We have concluded an order processing agreement with the service provider in which we oblige him to protect our customers’ data and not to pass it on to third parties.
Since a transfer of personal data to the USA takes place, further protection mechanisms are required to ensure the level of data protection of the GDPR. To ensure this, we have agreed standard data protection clauses with the provider in accordance with Art. 46 (2) lit. c DSGVO. These oblige the recipient of the data in the USA to process the data in accordance with the level of protection in Europe. In cases where this cannot be ensured even through this contractual extension, we endeavor to obtain additional regulations and commitments from the recipient in the USA.
Data stored by Google at user and event level that is linked to cookies, user identifiers (e.g. User ID) or advertising IDs (e.g. DoubleClick cookies, Android advertising ID) is anonymized or deleted after 14 months. You can find details on this under the following link: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7667196?hl=de
Google Ads Remarketing
Our website uses the functions of Google Ads Remarketing. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
If you have given us your consent, this function allows us to link the advertising target groups created with Google Ads Remarketing with the cross-device functions of Google Ads and Google Marketing Platform. The legal basis is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a DSGVO. In this way, interest-related, personalized advertising messages that have been adapted to you depending on your previous usage and surfing behavior on one end device (e.g. cell phone) can also be displayed on another of your end devices (e.g. tablet or PC).
If you have given your consent, Google will link your web and app browsing history with your Google account for this purpose. In this way, the same personalized advertising messages can be served on every end device on which you log in with your Google account.
To support this feature, Google Analytics-authenticated IDs of users are collected and temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create audiences for cross-device ad targeting.
You can permanently object to cross-device remarketing/targeting by deactivating personalized advertising in your Google account; to do so, follow this link: https://adssettings.google.com/
Since a transfer of personal data to the USA takes place, further protection mechanisms are required to ensure the level of data protection of the GDPR. To ensure this, we have agreed standard data protection clauses with the provider in accordance with Art. 46 (2) lit. c DSGVO. These oblige the recipient of the data in the USA to process the data in accordance with the level of protection in Europe. In cases where this cannot be ensured even by this contractual extension, we endeavor to obtain additional regulations and commitments from the recipient in the USA.
Google Web Fonts
This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter referred to as: “Google”) for the uniform display of fonts. The Google Fonts are installed locally. A connection to Google servers does not take place. The processing of your IP address is required for this. The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO on the basis of the consent given by you. This consent can be revoked at any time with effect for the future.
This website uses the map service Google Maps via an API. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
To ensure data protection on this website, Google Maps is deactivated when you first enter this website. A direct connection to Google’s servers is only established when you independently activate Google Maps (consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). This prevents your data from being transferred to Google when you first enter the page.
After activation, Google Maps will store your IP address. This is then usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transmission after the activation of Google Maps.
Since a transfer of personal data to the USA takes place, further protection mechanisms are required to ensure the level of data protection of the GDPR. To ensure this, Google uses standard data protection clauses in accordance with Art. 46 (2) lit. c DSGVO. These oblige the recipient of the data in the USA to process the data in accordance with the level of protection in Europe. In cases where this cannot be ensured by this contractual extension, we endeavor to obtain additional regulations and commitments from the recipient in the USA.
Google Tag Manager
This website uses the Google Tag Manager of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). Through this service, website tags can be managed via an interface. The Google Tag Manager only implements tags. This means that no cookies are used and only the user’s IP address is transmitted to Google to establish the connection. The Google Tag Manager triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. However, the Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at domain or cookie level, it remains in place for all tracking tags, insofar as these are implemented with the Google Tag Manager.
Wir verwenden den Google Tag Manager auf Grundlage Ihrer Einwilligung gemäß Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a DSGVO.
As there is a transfer of the IP address to Google in the USA, further protection mechanisms are required to ensure the data protection level of the GDPR. To ensure this, we have agreed standard data protection clauses with the provider in accordance with Art. 46 (2) lit. c DSGVO. These oblige the recipient of the data in the USA to process the data in accordance with the level of protection in Europe. In cases where this cannot be ensured even by this contractual extension, we endeavor to obtain additional regulations and commitments from the recipient in the USA.
