Note on data transfer to the USA and other third countries

We use, among other things, tools from companies based in the USA or other third countries that are not secure in terms of data protection. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to these third countries and processed there. We would like to point out that a level of data protection comparable to the EU cannot be guaranteed in these countries. For example, US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as the data subject being able to take legal action to stop this procedure. It cannot, therefore, be ruled out that the US authorities (e.g., secret services) process, evaluate and permanently store your data on US servers for surveillance purposes. We have no influence over these processing activities.

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can, at any time, revoke any consent you have already given. The lawfulness of the data processing carried out until such withdrawal of consent remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right to object to data collection in special cases and to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

IF THE DATA PROCESSING IS BASED ON ART. 6 PARA. 1 ITEM. E OR F GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA AT ANY TIME FOR REASONS ARISING FROM YOUR PARTICULAR SITUATION; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING BASED ON THESE TERMS. THE APPLICABLE LEGAL BASIS ON WHICH PROCESSING IS BASED CAN BE FOUND IN THIS DATA PROTECTION POLICY. IF YOU OBJECT, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA UNLESS WE CAN PROVE COMPLEX REASONS FOR THE PROCESSING THAT OUTWEIGH YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOM OR THE PROCESSING IS FOR THE PURPOSE OF THE EFFECTING, EXERCISE OR DEFENSE FORMATION OF LEGAL CLAIMS (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21 (1) GDPR).

IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS PROCESSED FOR DIRECT ADVERTISING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA CONCERNING YOU FOR THE PURPOSE OF SUCH ADVERTISING; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING TO THE EXTENT THAT IT IS CONNECTED WITH SUCH DIRECT ADVERTISING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL NO LONGER BE USED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT ADVERTISING (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21 (2) GDPR).

Right to lodge a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority

In the event of violations of the GDPR, those affected have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular, in the member state of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged violation. The right to lodge a complaint exists without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedies.

Right to data portability

You have the right to obtain data that we process automatically – based on your consent or in fulfillment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party – in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the data be transferred directly to another person responsible, this will only be done if it is technically feasible.

Information, deletions and corrections

You have, within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, the right to free information at any time about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient, plus information about the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, a right to correction or deletion of this data. You can contact us at any time about this or if you have any further questions on the subject of personal data.

Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted. You can contact us at any time about this point. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:

– If you dispute the accuracy of the personal data we hold about you (we will generally need time to verify this). You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted for the duration of the review.

– If the processing of your personal data was/is occurring unlawfully, you can request that data processing be restricted instead of it being deleted.

– If we no longer need your personal data but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted instead of it being deleted.

– If you have lodged an objection in accordance with Art. 21 Para. 1 GDPR, a balance must be made between your interests and ours. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted.

– If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data – apart from its storage – may only be used with your consent or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a member state.

7. Newsletters

Newsletter data

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website we need an email address from you, as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the email address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. No further data is collected or is only collected on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively to send the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.

The data entered into the newsletter registration form is processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 Item a GDPR).

The data you provide to us for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and have been deleted from the newsletter distribution list after you have unsubscribed from the newsletter or if the purpose no longer applies. We reserve the right to delete or block email addresses from our newsletter distribution list at our own discretion, within the scope of our legitimate interest, in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

Data stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected.

After you have been unsubscribed from the newsletter distribution list your email address may be stored in a watchlist by us or the newsletter service provider, if this is necessary to prevent future mailings.

8. Our services

Handling applicant data

We offer you the opportunity to apply to us for a position (e.g., by email, post or via the online application form). Below are details about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected as part of the application process.

We will also inform you about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected as part of the online application process in a separate data protection declaration on our careers pages.

We assure you that the collection, processing and use of your data is carried out in accordance with applicable data protection law and all other legal provisions, and that your data will be treated with strict confidentiality.

Scope and purpose of data collection

If you send us an application we process your associated personal data (e.g., contact and communication data, application documents, notes from job interviews, etc.) to the extent that this is necessary for deciding on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is Section 26 BDSG (Federal Data Protection Act) under German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 Para. 1 Item b GDPR (general contract initiation) and – if you have given your consent – Art. 6 Para. 1 Item a GDPR. Consent can be revoked at any time. Your personal data will only be passed on within our group of companies to people who are involved in processing your application.

If the application is successful, the data you submit will be stored in our data processing systems for the purpose of carrying out the employment relationship on the basis of Section 26 BDSG and Art. 6 Para. 1 Item b GDPR.

Data retention period

If we do not make you a job offer, you reject a job offer or you withdraw your application, we reserve the right to keep the data you have supplied for up to 6 months, based on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 Para. 1 Item f GDPR) following the end of the application process (rejection or withdrawal of the application). The data will then be deleted and the actual physical application documents destroyed. If it is necessary, in individual cases, to clarify any claims then longer storage may be necessary. In this instance deletion only takes place when the purpose for further storage no longer applies.

Storage for a longer period can also take place if you have given your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 Item a GDPR) or if legal retention obligations conflict with deletion.

Concluding Regulations

To ensure that this data protection declaration always complies with current legal requirements, but also to take into account changes to the application process or our processes, updates are necessary from time to time. We, therefore, reserve the right to change and update this privacy policy at any time and for any reason, without obligation to notify you. We encourage you to periodically visit this page to stay informed about our privacy policy.
