We appreciate your visit to our website and your interest in the offers presented. The protection of your personal data is something we take very seriously in our role as data controller. Internet pages can only be displayed once the visitor’s data, that is at least the IP address, has been transmitted. We would therefore like to provide you with comprehensive information about the processing of your personal data when you visit our website in the form of this data protection declaration. This is also something we are required to do by law. You can reach us by post at the address:

When it comes to data protection legislation, we are subject to the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) in conjunction with the European General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR) and the German Telemedia Act (TMG). This means that we are required to protect all information and data collected from visitors to this website and to treat it confidentially. Any data stored in connection with your visit to this website will only be processed to the extent described in this data protection declaration. We do not envisage using personal data beyond this or passing it on to third parties.
Personal data refers to information about the personal or factual situation of an identified or identifiable person. This includes names and contact details, such as address, telephone number, email address, as well as sensitive data, such as information on health status but also usage data such as the IP address.
Scope of the processing of personal data
We only collect and use personal data from visitors to this website to the extent necessary for providing a functional website and our content and services. We first obtain the consent of our users before collecting and using their personal data. There is an exception in cases where it is not possible to obtain prior consent for factual reasons and the processing of the data is authorised by legal regulations.
Legal ground for processing personal data
To the extent that we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations relating to personal data, Article 6 para. 1 lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) shall serve as the legal foundation. When processing personal data required for the fulfilment of a contract of which the data subject is a contractual party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR shall serve as the legal foundation. This shall also apply to processing operations which are essential for the fulfilment of pre-contractual measures. To the extent that the processing of personal data is deemed necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation that our association is subject to, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR shall serve as the legal foundation.
In the case that the life-critical interests of the data subject or another natural person render the processing of personal data necessary, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR shall serve as the legal foundation. Where the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and basic liberties of the data subject do not outweigh the interest mentioned above, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR shall serve as the legal foundation for the processing.
Collection of general information when visiting our website
When using our website for information purposes only, i.e. with no registration or other transmission of information, we shall only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server (log files). Consequently, information is automatically collected by ourselves or the web space provider with every access. Consequently, information is automatically collected by ourselves or the web space provider with every access.
The following data is collected, among other things: Name of the website, language, file, date and time of the access request, time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), amount of data transferred in each case, web browser and web browser version, operating system and version, the domain name of your internet provider, the so-called referrer URL (if transferred (users can switch this on and off in the browser), the page from which you accessed our website), access status/HTTP status code and the IP address. It would not be technically possible in part to deliver and display the contents of the website without this data. With this in mind, the collection of data is absolutely necessary. We also use the anonymous information for statistical purposes. It helps us to optimise our services and technology. We additionally reserve the right to check the log files at a later date if we suspect unlawful use of our website.
Users also have the possibility to access our website without cookies. In this case, the corresponding settings must be modified in the browser. Please refer to the help function in your browser to find out how to deactivate cookies. We would like to point out, however, that in doing so, some functions of this website may be impaired and the user friendliness may be limited.
Processing of data during communication
When you send us information by e-mail or through a contact form, we will store the data you provide (your e-mail address, name and telephone number, if applicable) so that we can respond to your enquiry. This involves your information being read within our organisation and forwarded to the relevant department. Your personal data will be stored and processed for this purpose. We shall delete the data generated in this context once storage is no longer necessary or restrict processing should there be legal obligations to retain data.
If you submit an application to us by e-mail, we will subsequently process the data you send us solely for the purpose of handling the application process. Should an employment relationship with an applicant be established, the data provided will be stored by us for the purpose of performing the activities required within the scope of the employment relationship. Access to such applicant data will only be granted to our employees responsible for personnel processing. Should no employment relationship materialise, then we will usually delete the application documents two months after being notified of the rejection, insofar that deletion does not conflict with a legitimate interest.
Insofar as we resort to commissioned service providers for individual functions of our service or wish to use your data for advertising purposes, you will be informed in detail about the respective processes below. In this case, we will also specify the defined criteria for the storage period.
Integration of third-party services and content
It may be the case that third-party content, such as videos from YouTube or Facebook, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are incorporated within this online service. This always presupposes that the providers of such content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) are aware of the IP address of the users. That is because without the IP address, they would not be able to send the content to the browser of the respective user. This means that the IP address is necessary for the presentation of this content. We make every effort to only use such content where the respective providers solely use the IP address for the delivery of the content. Nevertheless, we have no influence on this in the event that the third-party providers store the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. Once we become aware of this, we inform the users about it.
Web analytics services
We reserve the right to deploy so-called web analytics services. We would like to hereby inform you about the data processing in this context:
Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service offered by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files which are stored on your computer and which make it possible to analyse your use of the website. The information about your use of this website generated by the cookies is usually transferred to a Google server in the United States and stored there. As a result of the activation of IP anonymisation on these web pages, however, your IP address will be truncated by Google beforehand within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the United States and truncated there.
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use your information to evaluate website use by you, to compile reports on website activities and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. You can prevent cookies from being saved by changing the preferences of their browser software accordingly. We would like to point out, however, that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.
Furthermore, you can prevent the data collected by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including IP address) from being transmitted to Google and then processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: Browser Add On for deactivating Google Analytics.
Use of Leadinfo
This website uses the service provided by Leadinfo B.V., headquartered in Rotterdam. This service uses IP addresses to show us publicly available company data, such as company names and addresses.

Apart from this detection through IP addresses, two first-party cookies are used to gather information on how visitors use the website (analytics). These cookies are not linked to any other information and nothing is passed on to third parties.
