Google Maps / Google Maps content (external media)

If you give us your consent via the cookie banner, this website uses the component “Google Maps” to visually display geographical information: Zu den Cookie-Einstellungen
Google Maps is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”). Detailed information about privacy protection in connection with the use of Google Maps can be found on the Google website (“Google Privacy Policy & Terms of Use”): and the additional terms of use for Google Maps/Google Earth
By giving your consent, you will prevent a connection from being automatically established to the corresponding Google server when you call up our website in order to display the external content. You therefore decide yourself whether the provider collects information about you.
When using Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data on the use of the Maps functions by visitors to the website. If the user is logged in to the user account of the respective third-party provider during this time, the provider may be able to assign the information collected on 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 can be stored in the user’s personal user account and, if necessary, published. If the user wants to prevent the collected information from being directly assigned to his user account, he must log out before clicking the link. There is also the possibility to configure the respective user account accordingly.
In the event that personal data is transferred to Google LLC. based in the USA, Google uses EU standard contract clauses for the data transfers in question to ensure compliance with data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the EEA to so-called third countries. These are based on the Commission Decision of 5 February 2010 on standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data to processors established in third countries under Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council and continue to constitute an admissible legal mechanism for the transfer of data under the DSGVO. Further information is available from Google.
You can revoke your consent to be connected to the corresponding Google server at any time with effect for the future. To do so, you only need to inform us of your revocation by editing your consent accordingly in the cookie banner (category “External Media”): Zu den Cookie-Einstellungen

Linking Social-Media via graphic or text link

We also advertise on our website presences on the social networks listed below. The integration takes place via a linked graphic of the respective network. The use of this linked graphic prevents that when a website with a social media application is called up, a connection is automatically established to the respective server of the social network to display a graphic of the respective network itself. Only by clicking on the corresponding graphic is the user forwarded to the service of the respective social network.
After the user is forwarded, information about the user is collected by the respective network. It cannot be excluded that the data collected in this way is processed in the USA.
Initially, this is data such as IP address, date, time and visited page. If the user is logged into his 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 can be stored in the user’s personal user account and, if necessary, published. If the user wants to prevent the collected information from being directly assigned to his user account, he must log out before clicking on the graphic. There is also the possibility to configure the respective user account accordingly.

Online job applications / publication of job advertisements

We offer you the opportunity to apply for a job with us via our website. With these digital applications, your applicant and job application data will be collected and processed electronically by us for the purpose of handling the application procedure.
The legal basis for this processing is § 26 para. 1 sentence 1 BDSG in conjunction with Art. 88 para. 1 DSGVO.
If a contract of employment is concluded after the application procedure, we will store the data you provide during the application process in your personnel file for the purpose of the usual organizational and administrative process – naturally in compliance with the more extensive legal obligations.
The legal basis for this processing is also § 26 para. 1 sentence 1 BDSG in conjunction with Art. 88 para. 1 DSGVO.
If an application is rejected, we automatically delete the data transmitted to us two months after notification of the rejection. However, the data will not be deleted if the data requires longer storage of up to four months or until the conclusion of legal proceedings due to statutory provisions, e.g. due to the obligation to produce evidence under the AGG.
In this case, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO and § 24 para. 1 no. 2 BDSG. Our legitimate interest lies in the legal defense or enforcement.
If you expressly consent to a longer storage of your data, e.g. for your inclusion in a database of applicants or interested parties, the data will be processed further on the basis of your consent. The legal basis is then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO. However, you can of course revoke your consent at any time in accordance with Art. 7 Para. 3 DSGVO by making a declaration to us with effect for the future.

Contact inquiries / Contact possibility

If you contact us via contact form or e-mail, the data you provide will be used to process your request. The provision of the data is necessary to process and answer your inquiry – without the provision of this data, we cannot answer your inquiry or can only answer it to a limited extent.
The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Art. 6 Par. 1 letter f) DSGVO. If the e-mail contact is aimed at the conclusion of a contract or takes place within the framework of an existing contractual relationship, the additional legal basis for processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.
Your data will be deleted if your inquiry has been finally answered and the deletion does not conflict with any legal storage obligations, as for example in the case of a possible subsequent contract processing.
