We process your personal data in accordance with the applicable legal data protection requirements for the purposes listed below for each group of data subjects:
Some of the aforementioned processes or services are performed by carefully selected and contracted service providers. We transmit or receive personal data from these service providers solely on the basis of a processing contract. If the registered office of a service provider is outside the European Union or the European Economic Area, a third country transfer takes place. Data protection agreements that meet the legal requirements are contractually stipulated with these service providers to establish an appropriate level of data protection, and corresponding guarantees are agreed.

Retention periods under commercial law for financially relevant data are generally up to 10 years. Remotely, we may retain data for as long as necessary to protect us from claims that may be brought against us. These periods can be up to 30 years.
For the purposes of this general information for employees, the term:
This privacy statement applies to all pages of our online network that link to this statement.The overarching disclosures can be found on our main privacy page.
The purpose of the data collection is the optimization of the website, the error analysis, the individual tailoring to your needs, the offer to contact you and, if necessary, the sale of goods and services.
As a matter of principle, we collect and use personal data of our users only to the extent that this is necessary for the provision of a functional website as well as our contents and services or to the extent that you as a user provide us with such data by voluntary input. The collection and use of personal data by you as a user takes place regularly only after consent or for the justification and execution of a legal transaction. An exception applies in those cases where obtaining prior consent is not possible or disproportionate for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by another legal provision.
Each time you visit our website, our systems automatically collect data and information from the computer system of the calling computer.
The following types of data are collected: Browser type, version used, user’s operating system, host name, Internet service provider, user’s IP address, date and time of access, websites from which the user’s system has accessed our website or to which the user has accessed from our website.
Legal basis for the temporary storage of data and of the log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO with the above-mentioned legitimate interests.
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the user’s IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session.
The storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context. Our legitimate interest in data processing also lies in these purposes. The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended. Furthermore, we reserve the right to check the files if there is a justified suspicion of illegal use or a concrete attack on the pages due to concrete indications. In that case, our legitimate interest is processing for the purpose of investigation and prosecution of such attacks and unlawful uses.
Legal basis for data processing using cookies: The legal basis for the processing of personal data using technically necessary cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies for analysis purposes, if the user has given his consent in this regard, is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO, otherwise Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR in conjunction with. EC 47.
WebBeacons are invisible graphics with the size of a pixel. These are used by partner companies, in particular for the purpose of tracking a user across various web pages for profiling for use in advertising tailored to the user (targeting). A pixel embedded in the web page is loaded from the partner’s server when the web page is called up. The partner thus receives your IP address, as well as information about your browser and its version, as well as browser plug-ins used (browser fingerprint), about your operating system, and about your network operator.
Some of our websites integrate third-party content within the offer, such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, images, texts and multi-media files, RSS feeds or other services from other websites. This always requires a transmission of your IP address to the providers of this content. We cannot make any statement about the use of your data by these providers and also have no influence on the further processing. In particular, not about whether the data is used for other purposes, such as profiling. Please refer to the corresponding data protection notices of the respective third-party providers.You can protect yourself against further tracking by tracking pixels of these providers by disabling the acceptance of third-party cookies in your browser settings.
Some of our websites use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In the event that IP anonymization is activated on this website, however, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics may be merged with other data from Google. The legal basis for the processing of the users’ personal data is Art.6 Para.1 lit. f GDPR. We use Google Analytics to analyze and regularly improve the use of our website. The statistics obtained enable us to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. This website also uses Google Analytics for cross-device analysis of visitor flows, which is performed via a user ID. You can deactivate the cross-device analysis of your usage in your customer account under “My data”, “Personal data”.
Google Tag Manager is a solution that allows us to manage website tags through one interface. The Tag Manager tool itself (which implements the tags) is a cookie-less domain and does not collect any personal data. The tool takes care of triggering other tags, which in turn may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at the domain or cookie level, this remains in place for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager. Further information on data protection when using Google Tag Manager can be found at https://marketingplatform.google.com/about/analytics/tag-manager/use-policy/retrieve.
We use the Google Ad service to draw attention to our attractive offers on external websites with the help of advertising media (so-called Google Ads). We can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are in relation to the data of the advertising campaigns. In this way, we pursue the interest of displaying advertising that is of interest to you, making our website more interesting for you and achieving a fair calculation of advertising costs.
These advertising media are delivered by Google via so-called “ad servers”. For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, through which certain parameters for measuring success, such as display of ads or clicks by users, can be measured. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Ads will store a cookie in your PC. These cookies usually expire after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. The unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values for this cookie.
These cookies allow Google to recognize your Internet browser. Provided that a user visits certain pages of an Ads customer’s website and the cookie stored on his computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. A different cookie is assigned to each Ads customer. Cookies can therefore not be tracked through Ads clients’ websites. We ourselves do not collect or process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. These evaluations enable us to identify which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising media; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information.
Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with Google’s server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of Ads Conversion, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is a possibility that the provider will find out and store your IP address.
You can prevent participation in this tracking process in several ways:
The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art.6 Para.1 S.1 lit. f GDPR.

We use Hotjar to better understand the needs of our users and to optimize the offering and experience on this website. With the help of Hotjar technology we get a
better understanding of our users’ experiences (e.g., how much time users spend on which pages, which links they click, what they like and don’t like, etc.), and this helps us tailor our offering to our users’ feedback. Hotjar works
with cookies and other technologies to collect data about the behavior of our users and about their end devices, in particular IP address of the device (collected and stored only in anonymized form during your website use), screen size,
Device type (unique device identifiers), information about the browser used, location (country only), language preferred to view our website. Hotjar stores this information on our behalf in a pseudonymized user profile. Hotjar
is contractually prohibited from selling the data collected on our behalf.
When visiting a Hotjar-based website, you can prevent Hotjar from collecting your information at any time by going to our opt-out page at https://www.hotjar.com/legal/compliance/opt-out/.
and click Disable Hotjar.
For more information, see the ‘about Hotjar’ section at https://help.hotjar.com/hc/en-us/categories/115001323967-About-Hotjar.
In addition to Adwords Conversion, we use the Google Remarketing application. This is a procedure with which we would like to address you again. Through this application, our advertisements can be displayed to you during your further internet use after visiting our website. This is done by means of cookies stored in your browser, via which your usage behavior is recorded and evaluated by Google when you visit various websites. This allows Google to determine your previous visit to our website. According to its own statements, Google does not combine the data collected in the course of remarketing with your personal data that may be stored by Google. In particular, according to Google, pseudonymization is used in remarketing.
We use the website analysis tool Smartlook from Smartsupp.com s.r.o, Milady Horakove 13, 602 00 Brno, Czech Republic, to perform a so-called session replay. This allows us to analyze the mouse movements and clicks on the website and to see how far down individual pages are scrolled. The recording is anonymous and cannot be subsequently assigned to any users. In addition, end-device specific parameters such as the screen size, language setting of the browser and the device type are also recorded. The use takes place within the scope of a legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO, whereby our legitimate interests lie in the analysis of possible sources of errors and the optimized design of the web offer.
On some of our web pages YouTube videos are embedded, which are available on https://www.youtube.com/ and can be played directly from our website.
By visiting the website, YouTube receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, personal data (browser type, browser version, IP address, operating system) is transmitted. This occurs regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data is directly assigned to your account. If you do not want the assignment with your profile at YouTube, you must log out before activating the button. YouTube stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) for the provision of tailored advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.
Alternatively, it is possible to contact us via the e-mail address provided. In this case, the user’s personal data transmitted with the e-mail will be stored. In this context, the data will not be passed on to third parties. The data will be used exclusively for the processing of the conversation.
The legal basis for the processing is:
The processing of personal data from the input mask serves us solely to process the contact. In the case of contact by e-mail, this also constitutes the necessary legitimate interest in processing the data. The other personal data processed during the submission process are used to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is ended when the circumstances indicate that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified. The additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of seven days at the latest.
The user has the possibility to revoke his consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the user contacts us by e-mail, he can object to the storage of his personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued.
The collection of the user’s e-mail address is used to deliver the newsletter. The collection of other personal data during the registration process serves to prevent misuse of the services or the e-mail address used. The subscription to the newsletter can be cancelled by the user concerned at any time. For this purpose, there is a corresponding link in every newsletter. This also accepts a revocation of consent for the newsletter dispatch.
A statistical evaluation of the reading behavior takes place only to the extent that it can be determined whether the recipients have opened the newsletter and clicked on the links. This is a function, but we only use it to check user activity and make optimizations accordingly. For this purpose, the newsletter contains a so-called “web beacon”, a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from our server when the newsletter is opened.This web beacon is not personalized, so no personal data is collected in the process.
Some of our websites require or offer registration. The data collected in this process is used for the purposes of using the respective websites and services, unless otherwise described and explicitly consented to during registration. The collected data results from the input mask within the registration. All other data that you can enter later to complete your profile are optional and voluntary. After registration, we may inform you about relevant circumstances related to our offer, for which you have registered, by means of the deposited e-mail address.
If you post comments or contributions, upload files to our servers, publish images or use other services, your IP address and – if you are logged in – your user data will be stored for our security. Due to the large amount of illegal content that is posted on the Internet every day, we reserve the right to use this information to defend ourselves in legal disputes or for criminal prosecution, i.e. also to hand it over to claimants, law enforcement agencies as well as courts.
You can subscribe to follow-up comments on our websites. Unless you are logged in, you will receive a confirmation email as part of a so-called double opt-in process to verify that you are the legal owner of the specified mailbox. You can unsubscribe from the notification at any time. Instructions on how to do this are received in each of the emails. Registered users do not have to go through the double opt-in process, as this takes place during registration.
Furthermore, we reserve the right, in the case of orders or commissions, to pass on personal data to third parties for the purpose of providing creditworthiness information, insofar as this is necessary to protect our legitimate interests. Only the data required for the calculation of the creditworthiness by means of a mathematical-statistical procedure by the credit agency is transmitted. We require creditworthiness information in order to be able to decide on the establishment and implementation of a contractual relationship while safeguarding our legitimate interests.
Data transmission via the Internet is fundamentally subject to certain risks. A special encryption of the data is not made, in particular messages from the contact form of our website and messages in the service chat are transmitted unencrypted.Please keep this in mind when submitting data. If you wish to communicate with us via encrypted e-mail, this is possible via SMIME encryption. Please advise us of the request for encryption, as we regularly send unencrypted, due to the current low market penetration of email encryption methods.
If you provide us with personal data, this will only be passed on to third parties if this is necessary to process the contractual relationship or if another legal reason legitimizes this transfer. However, we provide certain services with the assistance of service providers. We have carefully selected these service providers and taken appropriate measures to protect your personal data.
The personal data of the data subject shall be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage ceases to apply. In addition, storage may take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need to continue storing the data for the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract.
We operate one or more corporate websites (“fan pages”) on the professional social media network Facebook, in particular for self-presentation, branding but also for the purpose of customer communication and recruiting.
According to the ruling of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) of 05.06.2018, Az. C-210/16, the operator of social media pages is at least jointly responsible for the data processing at least on Facebook fan pages within the meaning of Art. 26 GDPR.Although Facebook offers a free service at https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum but we do not know whether this declaration now meets the requirements of the GDPR.
We only process your data – apart from any further procedures below – if you contact us via the platform. In this case, Facebook collects your data and makes it available to us. In the process, storage and further processing by us may also take place. The processing of your personal data in the event of an inquiry or application is governed by our other related privacy statements.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data is, depending on the case constellation, the processing for the initiation and execution of a contract with you according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO or on basis our legitimate interest in communicating with users and our external presentation for the purpose of advertising pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.If you have given consent to the provider of the social network to the aforementioned data processing with effect for us, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
Furthermore, we may collect data from visitors to our company site, provided that the display as a visitor can be defined as processing. However, we do not store this data – subject to further procedures listed below – on our own systems, nor are they systematically processed beyond occasional notice.Our information regarding the controller, the data protection officer and the declaration of your rights as a data subject apply to these processing steps.
We operate one or more corporate websites on the social media network YouTube of Google Inc., in particular for self-presentation, but also for recruiting.
According to the ruling of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) of 05.06.2018, Az. C-210/16, the operator of social media pages is at least jointly responsible for the data processing at least on Facebook fan pages within the meaning of Art. 26 GDPR.We suspect an analogous applicability of this decision to other social networks, including YouTube. So far, we are not aware that YouTube offers an agreement that meets the requirements of of Art. 26.
We would like to point out that you use the YouTube channel offered here and its functions on your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of interactive functions (e.g. sharing, liking, disliking, commenting).
We only process your data if you contact us via the YouTube platform. In this case, YouTube collects your data and makes it available to us. In the process, storage and further processing by us may also take place. The processing of your personal data is then governed by one of our other privacy statements, depending on which group of data subjects you belong to. Furthermore, we may collect data from visitors to our company site, provided that the display as a visitor can be defined as processing. However, we do not store this data on our own systems, nor are they systematically processed beyond an occasional notice.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data is, depending on the case constellation, the processing for the initiation and execution of a contract with you according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO (e.g. for questions about products or services).or on basis our legitimate interest in communicating with users and our external presentation for the purpose of advertising pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR.If you have given consent to the provider of the social network to the aforementioned data processing with effect for us, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
Our information regarding the controller, the data protection officer and the declaration of your rights as a data subject apply to these processing steps.
Google has committed to the principles of the EU-US Privacy Shield https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.
As a customer and as an interested party or other data subject, we process your personal data primarily for the purpose of establishing and fulfilling a contractual relationship concluded with you or on the basis of a legitimate interest. Your data will be collected, stored and, if necessary, passed on by us to the extent required to provide the contractually agreed service, to provide information, to carry out direct marketing activities or other activities of our business operations. Failure to provide may result in the contract not being able to be concluded. Beyond that, we only process your data if you have consented to the processing or another legal permission exists.
We process your personal data to achieve the following purposes in connection with the initiation and implementation of a contractual relationship or other activities in the interest of the company:
Beyond that, we only process your data with your express declaration of consent.
The following are processed personal data:
Personal data will be transferred to group companies, supervisory authorities, legal service providers/auditors within the scope of the given necessities. If we are subject to a legal obligation to do so, we will release your data to the competent authority upon request.
In some cases, we use external service providers based in the European Economic Area to process your data.
These service providers have been carefully selected by us, commissioned in writing and are bound by our instructions. Our service providers are regularly inspected by us. The service providers will not pass this data on to third parties, but will delete it after fulfillment of the contract and completion of legal storage periods, unless you have consented to storage beyond this.
These are, for example:
In the case of orders on account, we reserve the right to carry out an assessment of the credit risk on the basis of mathematical-statistical procedures (scoring). For this purpose, your data, which is necessary for the credit assessment, is transferred to a credit agency (e.g. Schufa, Creditreform, Bürgel, Atradius, Coface). If the credit check is positive, an order on account is possible. If the credit check is negative, we cannot offer you payment on account. You can object to the transmission of this data to the credit agency at any time, but then it will no longer be possible to order on account.
Legal bases for the processing of your data are in particular:
Our legitimate interests in this regard lie in the achievement of the above-mentioned purposes and, in addition, in e.g.:
Where applicable, data is made available to us by third parties, e.g. in the context of recommendations. In this case, it is usually contact data in connection with data on specific product or service needs.
If necessary, we collect data from credit agencies regarding creditworthiness and/or negative features.
After the respective purpose has been achieved, your data will be deleted in compliance with the statutory retention periods.
If you apply for a position in our company, we process and store your personal data.We take your privacy very seriously and would therefore like to inform you at this point about how we handle your applicant data.
Before joining our company or during the application process, we process your personal data exclusively for the purpose of establishing a contractual relationship to the extent required.
The following are regularly processed types of personal data:
We do not need from you no information that is not usable under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG) (race, ethnic origin, gender, pregnancy, details of physical or mental illness, membership of a trade union, religion or belief, disability, age, sexual identity or sexual life), unless relevant to the advertised position.
We ask that you do not provide such data to us. The same applies to content that is likely to infringe the rights of third parties (e.g. copyrights, ancillary copyrights or other intellectual property rights, personality rights, press law or general rights of third parties).
After the respective purpose has been achieved, your data will be deleted. However, data will be retained for as long as necessary to defend legal claims. The storage period is usually 6 months. If your profile was transmitted to us by a personnel service provider and there are commission claims of this service provider, the storage period may last until their fulfillment or expiry. If processing relevant to accounting has been carried out, such as the reimbursement of travel expenses, the data required for this will be deleted in compliance with the statutory retention periods, usually 6 or 10 years. If the application is successful and we conclude a contract with you, we transfer the data collected during the application process to our personnel file.
