Data processing in the context of application situations is for the purposes of establishing and conducting an employment relationship pursuant to Article 88 GDPR in conjunction with § 26 BDSG (German Data Protection Act). In the event of a positive decision, the personal data goes into our personnel file and is used for the purposes of “staff management”.

DURATION FOR WHICH PERSONAL DATA IS STORED
1. Cookies are stored on your browser as so-called session cookies, which means your browser deletes them automatically when you leave the website. The duration for which they are stored depends in this instance on the technical functionality of the browser you are using.
2. With regard to personal data that is sent to us in relation to a contact request on our website, we only store this while we process the request. If a contract is concluded, the data you provide may regularly be stored in our customer service system for 10 years, unless there is another legal obligation for us to store the data for longer.

4. In any event, the personal data you provide will only be stored until you withdraw your consent.
Please be advised that we delete your data if we are not permitted to store it (especially if the data is incorrect and correction is not possible). Blocking may be used instead of deletion, providing there are no legal or factual obstacles (for example, special retention obligations due to requirements of commercial and fiscal law).
RIGHT OF OBJECTION
Insofar as your data is processed based on legitimate interests pursuant to Article 6(1) sentence 1(f) GDPR, you are entitled pursuant to Article 21 GDPR to object to the processing of your personal data, provided there are grounds relating to your particular situation or your personal data being processed for direct marketing purposes.

You have a right to the portability of the personal data held about you.
RIGHT TO COMPLAIN TO THE REGULATORY AUTHORITY
You have a right to complain to the competent regulatory authority.
PROVISION OF PERSONAL DATA
You are under no legal obligation to provide personal data.
There is no contractual obligation to provide us with personal data in the course of our business activity (if this is feasible anonymously). You may anonymise the data or remove the personal references.
AUTOMATED DECISION-MAKING INCLUDING PROFILING
We do not undertake automated profiling.
However, automated profiling may be used under certain circumstances with the aim of evaluating personal aspects, as we are obliged to combat money laundering, terrorism financing and crimes that endanger assets in accordance with statutory and regulatory requirements. Data evaluations (incl. checking statutory prescribed lists) are also performed in this context.
Information is stored on the cookie that is produced in each case in relation to the specific end device being used. However, this does not mean that we can use it to identify you directly.
We use temporary cookies to optimise user friendliness, which are stored on your end device for a specific, defined period. If you revisit our site to use our services, the system automatically detects that you have visited before and the inputs and settings you have used, which means you do not have to enter these again.
Most browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you can configure your browser to prevent any cookies being stored on your computer or to display a warning before a new cookie is created. However, if you deactivate cookies entirely this may mean that you cannot use all the features of our website.
To make it easier for you to find us, we have integrated maps from the Google Maps service from Google LLC into our website via an API. In order to display the content in your browser, Google must receive your IP address. Otherwise, Google cannot provide you with this integrated content. The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 (b) GDPR, since the IP address is required in order to be able to provide you with the contents. In this processing, our cooperation with Google is based on a joint responsibility agreement pursuant to Art. 26 GDPR, which can be retrieved here.
The tracking measures we employ as listed below are performed on the basis of Article 6(1) sentence 1(f) GDPR. We use these tracking measures on the one hand to ensure a needs-based design and ongoing optimisation of our website. We also use tracking tools to collect statistics on the use of our website, which we analyse in order to optimise our services on your behalf. These interests are considered legitimate in the meaning of the regulation quoted above.
The data processing purposes and the data categories in each case can be inferred from the respective tracking tool.
1. Google Analytics
• browser type/version
• operating system used
• referrer URL (the previously visited site)
• hostname of the accessing computer (IP address)
• time of the server request
is sent to a Google server in the USA and is stored there. This information is used to evaluate use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide other services associated with use of the website and the Internet for the purposes of market research and needs-based design on these Internet pages. This information may also be passed on to third parties if this is legally required or if third parties process it on Google’s behalf. On no account will your IP address be associated with other Google data. The IP addresses are anonymised so that association is not possible (IP masking).
You can prevent the installation of cookies by adjusting the browser software accordingly. However, we must advise you that in such a case you may not be able to utilise all functions of this website to the full.
You can also prevent the capture of data produced by the cookie and related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address), as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de)
Google also offers a deactivation option for the most common browsers, which gives you more control over which data Google records and processes. If you activate this option, no information on your website visit will be sent to Google Analytics. Activation does not prevent information being sent to us or to other web analysis services that we may choose to use. You will find more information on the deactivation option offered by Google and on how to activate this option via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile end devices, you can prevent recording by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. This will create an opt-out cookie that will prevent your data being recorded when you visit this website in future. The opt-out cookie is only valid on this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you have deleted all the cookies in your browser, you will need to reactivate the opt-out cookie.
2. Google AdWords Conversion Tracking
We also use Google Conversion Tracking to collect statistics on the use of our website, which we analyse in order to optimise your use of our website. A cookie is set by Google AdWords on your computer, if you accessed our website via a Google ad.
These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of the AdWords client’s website and the cookie has not yet expired, the client and Google will be able to tell that the user clicked the advert and was directed to this page.
Each AdWords client has a different cookie. Therefore, cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords clients. The information gathered using conversion cookies helps to generate conversion statistics for AdWords clients who have opted in to conversion tracking. AdWords clients can find out the total number of users who have clicked on their ad and were directed to a page provided with a conversion tracking tag. They do not, however, obtain any information that can be used to identify users personally.
If you do not want to be involved in the tracking process, you can also reject the setting of a cookie, e.g. by using the browser setting that disables the automatic setting of cookies in general. You can also disable cookies for conversion tracking by adjusting your browser settings to block cookies from the domain “googleadservices.com”. You can read Google’s data protection policy for conversion tracking here (https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html).
3. Matomo (formerly Piwik)
We use the open-source software Matomo for analysis and statistical evaluation of the use of our website. Cookies are used in this context. The information produced by the cookie about website usage is sent to our server and collated into pseudonymous usage profiles. The information is used to evaluate use of the website and to facilitate a needs-based design of our website. The information is not passed to third parties.
On no account will the IP address be linked with any other data relating to the user. The IP addresses are anonymised so that association is not possible (IP masking). Your visit to this website is currently being recorded by Matomo Web Analytics. Click here (https://matamo.org/docs/privacy/) to prevent your visit being recorded.
4. Use of reCAPTCHA
To protect input forms on our site we use the “reCAPTCHA” service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter “Google”. Using this service enables the system to determine whether the corresponding information has been entered by a human or is the result of improper automated processing. To the best of our knowledge, Google receives information about the referrer URL, IP address, behaviour of the website visitor, the operating system, browser and length of visit, cookies, display settings and scripts, the user's input behaviour and mouse movements in the reCAPTCHA checkbox.
Google uses this information amongst other things to digitalise books and other print products and to optimise services like Google Street View and Google Maps (e.g. house number and road name recognition).
The IP address recorded by “reCAPTCHA” is not combined with other Google data, unless you are logged into your Google account when the reCAPTCHA plugin is used. If you wish to prevent data about you and your behaviour on our website being sent to and stored by Google, you must log out of Google before you visit our site and utilise the reCAPTCHA plugin.
Use of the information recorded by the reCAPTCHA service is subject to Google’s Conditions of Use (https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/).
5. VG WORT
We use so-called tracking pixels on our site of the copyright collective VG WORT in the form of the scalable centralised measuring system (SZM) from provider INFOnline GmbH (INFOnline GmbH, Forum Bonn Nord, Brühler Str. 9, 53119 Bonn) to calculate statistics relating to the likelihood of texts being copied.
The data this produces is anonymised. To record the access numbers needed to recognise visitors, our website uses either a so-called session cookie or a signature, which is created from various pieces of information transmitted automatically by your browser. The IP address is only processed in this context in an anonymous form. Individual users are not identified at any point. This process is used to calculate the likelihood of individual texts being copied.
6. wordpress.com STATS
We use the Jetpack component on our website of Automattic Inc., 132 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA, using the technology of Quantcast Corp., 201 Third Street, 2nd Floor, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. Each time our site is accessed, data on web analysis is collected and stored in the USA using cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored in the cache of the visitor’s Internet browser, enabling the visitor’s Internet browser to be recognised. However, the IP address is anonymised straight after processing before it is stored. You can prevent the installation of cookies and delete stored cookies by changing the settings on your browser software; but we must advise you that this may prevent you from enjoying the full functionality of our website.
You can prevent the Jetpack component from recording and using the data in the future by creating an opt-out cookie on your browser via www.quantcast.com/opt-out. You will need to repeat this process if you delete all the cookies on your browser.
7. Social media
We maintain an online presence on social networks and platforms in order to help us communicate with customers, potential customers and users who are active on them and to inform them there about our services.
We draw your attention to the fact that, in this process, your data as a user may be processed outside of the European Union. This may entail risks for users, as, for example, it may be more difficult to enforce the implementation of user rights. With regard to US providers certified under the Privacy Shield, we would like to point out that they have undertaken to meet the EU data protection standards.
Furthermore, the user data are usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, user profiles can be created from user behaviour and the interests derived from them. Moreover, the user profiles can be used, for example, to run ads within and outside platforms which presumably match users' interests. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the computers of the users in which user behaviour and the interests of the users are saved. In addition, data may also be saved in the user profiles independently of the devices used by the users (particularly if the users are members of the relevant platform and are logged in there).
Furthermore, we use social plugins from the social networks Facebook, Twitter and Instagram on our website in order to make our company better known. We have embedded this plugin by means of the so-called two-click method in order to ensure the best possible protection for users of our website.
The processing of users' personal data is carried out on the basis of our legitimate interests in effective information for users and communication with users pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 point (f) GDPR. If the users are requested by the respective providers of the platforms to give their consent to the aforementioned data processing, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 point (a), Art. 7 GDPR.
Please refer to the providers' links below for a detailed description of the processing concerned and your options to object to it (opt-out).
If you require information or wish to assert your rights as a user, we would point out that here, too, such purposes can be most effectively pursued with the providers. Only the providers have access in each case to users' data and can intervene accordingly or provide information. If you still require any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

1. YouTube videos
We embed YouTube videos on some of our web pages. The corresponding plugin is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection is established with the YouTube servers. Information about which of our pages you have visited is then sent to the YouTube server. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube is able to attribute your surfing behaviour directly to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.
If you have deactivated cookie storage for the Google Ad program, you will not have to contend with such cookies when watching YouTube videos either. YouTube also records non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you would like to prevent this, you will need to block cookie storage on your browser.

Rights of data subjects
The joint controllers must grant the data subjects various rights with regard to the processing of their data, which these may assert pursuant to the agreement within the meaning of Art. 26 para. 1 GDPR, directly against the platform operator:
Data subjects have a right to access, rectify or delete personal data concerning them or a right to limit data processing by the data controller if certain conditions are met in accordance with Art. 15 to Art. 18 GDPR. Data subjects also have the right to revoke their consent to the processing of their personal data at any time with effect for the future (Art. 7 para. 3 GDPR). In addition, they may also object to the further processing of their data, which is based exclusively on the legitimate interest of the data controller in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 point (f) GDPR (Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR), provided that their particular personal situation gives rise to legitimate interests in the exclusion of data processing and that there are no longer any compelling legitimate reasons for the data controller for further data processing. If personal data are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, data subjects have the right at any time to object to this processing with effect for the future (Art. 21 para. 2 GDPR). If the data processing is based on the consent of the data subject pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 point (a), Art. 9 para. 1 point (a) GDPR or pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR on a contract with the data subject and is carried out using automated procedures, the data subjects may, pursuant to Art. 20 para. 1 GDPR, request that the personal data stored about them be retained in a structured, common and machine-readable format or that they be transmitted to a third party designated by the data subject.
In principle, data subjects have the right not to be subject to an automated individual decision pursuant to Art. 22 (1) GDPR.
