As the data controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete possible protection of the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can in principle have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, you are also free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone or letter.

The person responsible for Basic Data Protection Regulation, other data protection laws applicable in the Member States of the European Union and other provisions of a data protection nature, is the Data Protection Officer:

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized for user interests. Cookies enable us to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to simplify the use of our website. Some cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them.

With common browsers, you have the option of preventing cookies from being saved. Cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time directly via the browser. Note: It is then possible that you will not be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions.

If other cookies (e.g. for analysis functions) are set, these are dealt with separately in this data protection declaration.

  1. Means of contacting us via website

Due to legal regulations, our website contains information that enables a quick electronic and direct contact with our company (e.g. e-mail address). If you contact us by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data you provide will be stored automatically.

Routine deletion and blocking of personal data:
We process and store your personal data only for the period of time necessary to achieve the storage purpose or as far as as this has been provided for by the European Directive and Regulation Body or another legislator in laws or regulations to which the data controller is subject.

  1. Online job application

Online job application
By transmitting your data via e-mail or online application form, you agree that we store and use your data for the context of the application procedure. A passing on to third parties is excluded.

However, certain data relating to your application must be stored for a limited period of 3 months in order to comply with statutory provisions, in particular the obligation to provide evidence under the General Equal Opportunities Act (Allgemeines Gleichstellungsgesetz – AGG).   

  1. Third-party content and services

The offer on our website also includes supplementary contents, services and performances from other providers. Using these services from third parties regularly requires the transmission of your IP address. Thus it is possible for these providers to obtain your user IP address and also store it.

We make every effort to only include third-party providers using IP addresses for the sole purpose of content delivery. However, we have no influence upon storage of IP addresses through third parties. This storage can, for example, be used for statistical purposes. Should we become aware of storage processes by third parties, we will immediately inform our users of this fact. 

  1. Google Web Fonts

This page uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.

For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to Google’s servers. This provides Google with the knowledge that your IP address has been used to access our website. The use of Google Web Fonts enables a uniform and appealing presentation of our online services. This constitutes a legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font will be used by your computer. Further information on Google Web Fonts can be found under and in Google’s privacy policy:

  1. Links to other websites

Our online offer contains links to online presences within social networks and platforms. These are maintained in order to communicate with customers, interested parties and users active there as well as to inform them about our services (so-called external links). We have no influence on whether the operators of other websites comply with data protection regulations.

When used, users’ personal data may be processed outside the European Union. This may result in risks with regard to the use of your personal data. US providers who are certified under the Privacy Shield have thereby committed themselves to comply with the data protection standards of the EU.

User data are generally processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, user profiles can be created on the basis of user behavior and the resulting interests of users. Under certain circumstances, these may be used to place advertisements inside and outside of  the platforms presumed to correspond with the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the user’s computer on which the usage behavior and interests are stored. Data about the used devices may also be stored in the user profiles (in particular if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them).

  1. Supervisory authority

If you believe that the processing of your personal data is not legitimate, contact any data protection supervisory authority. The responsible supervisory authority is the Saxon Data Protection Commissioner. 

  1. Legal basis of the processing

Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO serves as a legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a contract to which the data subject is a party, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO.

The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, as in cases of inquiries regarding our services. If our company is subject to legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, such as for fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO.

Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DSGVO. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases are covered by this one should processing become necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedom of the data subject do not predominate.

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, the legitimate interest lies in the performance of our business activities and the maintenance of our legal capacity.
