a) Session cookies

Through these cookies, certain information about you, such as your browser or location data or your IP address, is processed to an individual extent.
This processing makes our website more user-friendly, effective and secure, as the processing enables, for example, the reproduction of our website in different languages or the offer of a shopping cart function.
The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit b.) DSGVO, insofar as these cookies data are processed for the purpose of initiating or executing a contract.
If the processing does not serve to initiate or execute a contract, our legitimate interest lies in improving the functionality of our website. In this case, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.
When you close your internet browser, these session cookies are deleted.
b) Third-party cookies
Where applicable, cookies from partner companies with which we cooperate for the purpose of advertising, analysis or the functionalities of our website are also used with our website.

c) Elimination possibility
You can prevent or restrict the installation of cookies by setting your internet browser. You can also delete cookies that have already been stored at any time. However, the steps and measures required for this depend on the specific internet browser you use. If you have any questions, please use the help function or documentation of your Internet browser or contact its manufacturer or support. In the case of so-called Flash cookies, however, processing cannot be prevented via the browser settings. Instead, you must change the settings of your Flash player. The steps and measures required for this also depend on the specific Flash player you use. If you have any questions, please also use the help function or documentation of your Flash player or contact the manufacturer or user support.
However, if you prevent or restrict the installation of cookies, this may mean that not all functions of our website can be fully used.

This data will not be passed on without your consent. The data entered in the contact form is processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal communication by e-mail is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Data transmitted via the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or there is no longer any need to store the data. Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

The legal basis in this case is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO and Section 24 para. 1 no. 2 BDSG. Our legitimate interest lies in the legal defence or enforcement.
If you expressly consent to your data being stored for a longer period of time, e.g. for your inclusion in a database of applicants or interested parties, the data will be processed on the basis of your consent. The legal basis is then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO.

Our website uses functions of the XING network. The provider is XING AG, Dammtorstraße 29-32, 20354 Hamburg, Germany. When a page with integrated Xing functions is called up, a connection to the Xing servers is established. As far as we are aware, no personal data is stored. IP addresses are not stored, nor is usage behaviour evaluated.
We would like to inform you here about the processing of personal data via the XING Share button function.
Social media link via graphic or text link
We also promote presences on the social networks listed below on our website. The integration takes place via a linked graphic of the respective network. The use of this linked graphic prevents a connection from being automatically established to the respective server of the social network when a website with a social media advertisement is called up in order to display a graphic of the respective network itself. Only by clicking on the corresponding graphic is the user redirected to the service of the respective social network.
After the user has been forwarded, information about the user is collected by the respective network. It cannot be ruled out that the data collected in this way will be processed in the USA.
This is initially data such as IP address, date, time and page visited. If the user is logged into his or her user account of the respective network during this time, the network operator may be able to assign the collected information of the user’s specific visit to the user’s personal account. If the user interacts via a “Share” button of the respective network, this information can be stored in the user’s personal user account and possibly published. If the user wants to prevent the collected information from being directly assigned to his/her user account, he/she must log out before clicking on the graphic. In addition, it is possible to configure the respective user account accordingly.

If an employment relationship arises between you and us, we may, in accordance with Art. 88 DSGVO in conjunction with § 26 BDSG-neu, further process the personal data already received from you for the purposes of the employment relationship, insofar as this is necessary for the implementation or termination of the employment relationship or for the exercise or fulfilment of the rights and obligations of the employee representation resulting from a law or a collective agreement, a company or service agreement (collective agreement).

We only process data that is related to your application.

8. duration of data storage
We store your personal data as long as this is necessary for the decision on your application. Your personal data or application documents will be deleted a maximum of six months after the end of the application process (e.g. notification of the rejection decision), unless longer storage is legally required or permitted. We store your personal data beyond this only insofar as this is required by law or in the specific case for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims for the duration of a legal dispute.
In the event that you have consented to a longer storage of your personal data, we will store it in accordance with your declaration of consent.
If an employment relationship, apprenticeship or trainee relationship is established following the application process, your data will initially continue to be stored insofar as this is necessary and permissible and will then be transferred to the personnel file.
