If you contact our company, we will collect personal data (e.g. using the contact form, e-mail or telephone). Naturally, the personal data voluntarily transmitted to us in such cases will only be used for the purpose for which you made it available when you contacted us. It goes without saying that you can revoke your declarations of consent at any time with effect for the future. Please contact our Data Protection Officer if you wish to do so.
Our data privacy statement is based on the terms set out in Article 4 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter referred to as the “GDPR”). Our data privacy statement is designed to be straightforward, easy to read and easy to understand for everyone. With this in mind, we would like to explain the terms used in advance. If certain terms nevertheless remain unclear, you are welcome to contact our Data Protection Officer.
What is personal data?
Personal data is defined in Article 4 of the GDPR. It describes personal data as all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as the “data subject”). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
This includes, for example, your name, your address, your telephone number or your date of birth.
What does the term “processing” mean?
“Processing” means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
Who is responsible for processing?
The party responsible (the “controller”) is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data.
The controller within the meaning of the GDPR, i.e. the party responsible for processing the data on this website, is:
Telefon: +49 3641 3219950
Telefax: +49 3641 3219951
Who is a processor?
A “processor” means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
What does “profiling” mean?
“Profiling” means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyze or predict aspects concerning that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or movements.
Use of personal data
The controller collects and processes personal data concerning applicants for the purpose of executing the job application procedure. The data may also be processed electronically. This is the case in particular if an applicant sends corresponding application documents electronically, for example by e-mail, to the controller. If the controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in accordance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically erased six months after the applicant receives the rejection notification, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller stand in the way of such erasure. “Other legitimate interests” in this sense include, for example, a burden of proof in proceedings under the German General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

If, however, a data subject wishes to make use of special services offered by our company via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data.

Right to data portability
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which he or she has provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.

- the processing is carried out by automated means.
That right shall not apply to processing necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

To assert the right to data portability, the data subject can contact our Data Protection Officer at any time.

This also applies to profiling insofar as it is connected with such direct marketing. To assert the right to object, the data subject can contact our Data Protection Officer directly at any time.
Automated individual decision-making, including profiling
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly significantly affects him or her insofar as the decision:
- is not necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or
- is authorized by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests; or
- is based on the data subject's explicit consent.
If the decision
- is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller or
- is based on the data subject's explicit consent, our company shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms, as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject.

Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
