The website uses so-called cookies in several places. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the cache of your internet browser. Cookies enable recognition of the internet browser. Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They will be deleted automatically at the end of your visit. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses.

This website uses Google Analytics to analyze website usage. The resulting data is used to optimize the website and advertising.
Google Analytics is a web analytics service operated and provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States). Google processes the website usage data on our behalf and is contractually committed to taking steps to ensure the confidentiality of the processed data.

  • Technical information such as browser, Internet provider, terminal and screen resolution

This data is transmitted to a Google server in the USA. Google complies with the data protection provisions of the EU-US Privacy Shield Agreement. Google Analytics stores cookies in your web browser for a period of two years since your last visit. These cookies contain a randomly generated user ID that will allow you to be recognized during future website visits. The recorded data is stored together with the randomly generated user ID, which allows the evaluation of pseudonymous user profiles. This user-related data is automatically deleted after 14 months. Other data remains stored in aggregated form for an indefinite period. If you do not agree with the collection, you can prevent them with the one-time installation of the browser add-on for disabling Google Analytics.

We would like to point out that e-mails might be read or changed unauthorized and unnoticed on the transmission path. Furthermore, we would like to draw attention to the use of a software for filtering unwanted e-mails (spam filters). The spam filter can reject e-mails if they have been identified as spam by certain features. The confidentiality of sensitive or personal data, which are sent by unencrypted e-mail or internet connection, is not guaranteed. Personal data is any information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person. These include, for example, your name, address or telephone number.
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption techniques (such as SSL) over HTTPS.

The data submitted in the context of an application will be stored electronically for the purposes of application management and selection of applicants. If there is no employment contract, these will be deleted after the end of the selection process, but at the latest after six months, if the applicant has given written consent to this storage. In no case the data collected will be sold or otherwise passed on to third parties. For requests via the contact form or newsletter subscription, you must expressly agree to this Privacy Policy.

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. Therefore, we only store your personal data for as long as it is necessary to achieve the purposes mentioned here or as provided for by the various storage periods provided for by law.

You can make changes or revoke your consent by notifying us with effect for the future.

We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy from time to time to ensure that it complies with current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the Privacy Policy, such as for example, when introducing new services.
