  • date and time of the request,
  • Address of the website called up and the requesting website,
  • information about the browser used and the operating system,
  • online identifiers (e.g. device identifiers, session IDs).

The data processing of this access data is necessary to enable the visit of the website and to ensure the permanent functionality and security of our systems. The access data is also temporarily stored in internal log files for the purposes described above, in order to compile statistical information about the use of our website, to further develop our website with regard to the usage habits of our visitors (e.g. if the proportion of mobile devices used to access the pages increases) and to generally maintain our website administratively.
The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DSGVO, if the page view occurs in the course of the initiation or execution of a contract, and otherwise Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO due to our legitimate interest in the permanent functionality and security of our systems.
The log files are stored for 7 days and archived after subsequent anonymization.

2.2 Contacting

You have various options for contacting us. This includes contacting us by e-mail or telephone. In this context, we process data exclusively for the purpose of communicating with you.
The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DSGVO, insofar as your information is required to answer your inquiry or to initiate or execute a contract, and otherwise Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO due to our legitimate interest that you contact us and we can answer your inquiry. We only make promotional telephone calls if you have given your consent for this. If you are not an existing customer, we will also send you promotional e-mails only on the basis of your consent. The legal basis in these cases is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO.
The data collected when we use it will be deleted after we have fully processed your request, unless we still need your request to fulfill contractual or legal obligations (see Section 7 "Storage period").

3. Use of cookies and comparable technologies

This website uses cookies and comparable technologies (collectively "tools"), which are either provided by ourselves or by third parties.

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your device by the browser. Cookies are not used to run programs or download viruses onto your computer. Comparable technologies are in particular web storage (local / session storage), fingerprints, tags or pixels. Most browsers are set by default to accept cookies and similar technologies. However, you can usually adjust your browser settings so that cookies or comparable technologies are rejected or only stored with your prior consent. If you refuse cookies or similar technologies, not all of our offers may function properly for you.
In the following, the tools we use are listed according to category. In particular, we inform you about the providers of the tools, the storage period of the cookies and the transfer of data to third parties. We also explain in which cases we obtain your voluntary consent to use the tools and how you can revoke this consent.

If - even despite the greatest care - the information in the cookie banner contradicts that in this privacy policy, the information in this privacy policy takes precedence.

3.1 Legal basis and revocation

3.1.1 Legal basis

We use tools necessary for website operation on the basis of our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DSGVO to enable you to use our website more conveniently and individually and to make use of it as time-saving as possible. In certain cases, these tools may also be necessary for the performance of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, in which case the processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DSGVO.
We use all other tools, in particular those for marketing purposes, based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO and pursuant to Section 15 para. 3 p. 1 TMG, insofar as usage profiles are created for the purposes of advertising or market research. Data processing with the help of these tools only takes place if we have received your consent in advance.
If personal data is transferred to third countries, we refer you to section 6 ("Data transfer to third countries"), also with regard to the possible associated risks. We will inform you if we have concluded standard contractual clauses or other guarantees with the providers of certain tools. If you have given your consent to use certain tools, we (also) transfer the data processed when using the tools to third countries on the basis of this consent.

3.1.2 Obtaining your consent

To obtain and manage your consent, we use the Usercentrics tool from Usercentrics GmbH, Rosental 4, 80331 Munich, Germany ("Usercentrics"). This generates a banner that informs you about data processing on our website and gives you the option to consent to all, some or no data processing through optional tools. This banner appears the first time you visit our website and when you revisit the selection of your preferences to modify them or withdraw consents. The banner will also appear on subsequent visits to our website if you have deactivated the storage of cookies or if the cookie has been deleted by Usercentrics or has expired.
Your consent or revocation, your IP address, information about your browser, your terminal device and the time of your visit are transmitted to Usercentrics during your visit to our website. In addition, Usercentrics uses a necessary cookie to store your given consents and revocations. If you delete your cookies, we will ask you for your consent again when you visit the site at a later time.

The data processing by Usercentrics is necessary to provide you with the legally required consent management and to comply with our documentation obligations. The legal basis for the use of Usercentrics is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO, justified by our interest in meeting the legal requirements for cookie consent management.

3.1.3 Revocation of your consent or change of your selection

You can revoke your consent for certain tools at any time in our Cookie Banner. To do so, click the following Cookie Settings. There you can also change the selection of tools you wish to consent to using, as well as obtain supplementary information on cookies and the respective storage period. Alternatively, you can assert your wi-derruf for certain tools directly with the provider..

The Google Tag Manager does not require the use of cookies.

The legal basis is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DSGVO, based on our legitimate interest in integrating and managing multiple tags on our website in a straightforward manner.

4. Online presences in social networks

We maintain online presences in social networks in order to communicate there with customers and interested parties, among others, and to provide information about our services.

User data is generally processed by the social networks concerned for market research and advertising purposes. In this way, usage profiles can be created based on the interests of the users. For this purpose, cookies and other identifiers are stored on the users' computers. Based on these usage profiles, for example, advertisements are then placed within the social networks but also on third-party websites.

As part of the operation of our online presences, it is possible that we can access information such as statistics on the use of our online presences, which are provided by the social networks. These statistics are aggregated and may include, in particular, demographic information and data on interaction with our online presences and the posts and content distributed via them. For details and links to the data of the social networks that we as operators of the online presences can access, please refer to the list below.

The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO, based on our legitimate interest in effectively informing users and communicating with users, or Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DSGVO, in order to stay in contact with and inform our customers, as well as to carry out pre-contractual measures with future customers and interested parties.

For the legal basis of the data processing carried out by the social networks on their own responsibility, please refer to the data protection notices of the respective social network. The links below also provide you with further information on the respective data processing as well as the options to object.

We would like to point out that data protection requests can be asserted most efficiently with the respective provider of the social network, as only these providers have access to the data and can take appropriate measures directly. Below is a list with information on the social networks on which we operate online presences:

Facebook (USA and Canada: Facebook Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA; all other countries: Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland).

Instagram (Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland).

LinkedIn (LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland).

Xing/Kununu (XING SE, Dammtorstraße 30, 20354 Hamburg, Germany)

5. Transfer of data

A transfer of the data collected by us takes place in principle only if:

  • you have given your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO,
  • the disclosure is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not having your data disclosed,
  • we are legally obliged to disclose your data according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. c DSGVO or
  • this is legally permissible and necessary according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DSGVO for the processing of contractual relationships with you or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures that take place at your request.

Part of the data processing may be carried out by our service providers. In addition to the service providers mentioned in this privacy policy, this may include, in particular, data centers that store our website and databases, software providers, IT service providers that maintain our systems, agencies, market research companies, group companies and consulting companies. If we pass on data to our service providers, they may only use the data to perform their tasks. The service providers have been carefully selected and commissioned by us. They are contractually bound to our instructions, have suitable technical and organizational measures in place to protect the rights of the data subjects and are regularly monitored by us.

In addition, a transfer may take place in connection with official inquiries, court decisions and legal proceedings if it is necessary for legal prosecution or enforcement.

6. Data transfer to third countries

As explained in this Privacy Policy, we use services whose providers are partly located in or process personal data in so-called third countries (outside the European Union or the European Economic Area), i.e. countries whose data protection level does not correspond to that of the European Union. Insofar as this is the case and the European Commission has not issued an adequacy decision (Article 45 GDPR) for these countries, we have taken appropriate precautions to ensure an adequate level of data protection for any data transfers. These include, among others, the standard contractual clauses of the European Union or binding internal data protection regulations.

Where this is not possible, we base the data transfer on exceptions of Art. 49 DSGVO, in particular your explicit consent or the necessity of the transfer for the performance of the contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

If a third country transfer is provided for and no adequacy decision or appropriate safeguards are in place, it is possible and there is a risk that authorities in the respective third country (e.g. intelligence services) may gain access to the transferred data in order to collect and analyze it, and that enforceability of your data subject rights cannot be guaranteed. When obtaining your consent via the cookie banner, you will also be informed of this.

7. Storage period

In principle, we store personal data only as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which we collected the data. Thereafter, we delete the data immediately, unless we still need the data until the expiry of the statutory limitation period for evidence purposes for civil law claims or because of statutory retention obligations.

For evidentiary purposes, we must retain contractual data for three years from the end of the year in which the business relationship with you ends. Any claims become statute-barred at this point at the earliest in accordance with the standard statutory limitation period.

Even after this, we still have to store some of your data for accounting reasons. We are obliged to do so because of legal documentation obligations that may arise from the German Commercial Code, the German Fiscal Code, the German Banking Act, the German Money Laundering Act and the German Securities Trading Act. The periods specified there for the retention of documents are two to ten years.

8. Your rights, in particular revocation and objection

You are entitled to the data subject rights formulated in Art. 15 - 21, Art. 77 DSGVO at any time:

  • Right to withdraw your consent;
  • Right to object to the processing of your personal data (Art. 21 DSGVO);
  • Right to information about your personal data processed by us (Art. 15 DSGVO);
  • Right to rectify your personal data stored by us that is incorrect (Art. 16 DSGVO);
  • Right to erasure of your personal data (Art. 17 DSGVO);
  • Right to restrict the processing of your personal data (Art. 18 DSGVO);
  • Right to data portability of your personal data (Art. 20 GDPR);
  • Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority (Art. 77 DSGVO).

To exercise your rights described here, you can contact us at any time using the contact details above. This also applies insofar as you wish to receive copies of guarantees demonstrating an adequate level of data protection. Provided that the respective legal requirements are met, we will comply with your data protection request.

Your requests to assert data protection rights and our responses to them will be stored for documentation purposes for a period of up to three years and, in individual cases, even longer for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims. The legal basis is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DSGVO, based on our interest in defending against any civil claims under Art. 82 DSGVO, avoiding fines under Art. 83 DSGVO and fulfilling our accountability obligations under Art. 5 (2) DSGVO.

You have the right to revoke your consent at any time. This has the consequence that we no longer continue the data processing based on this consent for the future. The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.

In so far as we process your data on the basis of legitimate interests, you have the right to object to the processing of your data at any time on grounds relating to your particular situation. If it concerns an objection to data processing for direct marketing purposes, you have a general right of objection, which will also be implemented by us without giving reasons.

If you wish to exercise your right of revocation or objection, it is sufficient to send an informal message to the above contact details.

Finally, you have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority. You can assert this right at a supervisory authority in the member state of your residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement. In Berlin, our headquarters, the competent supervisory authority is: Berlin Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information, Friedrichstr. 219, 10969 Berlin.
