Note on the transfer of data to the USA and other third countries
The tools we use include tools supplied by companies based in the USA or other third countries that are not deemed secure under data protection law. When such tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to these third countries and processed there. Please be aware that no level of data privacy protection comparable to that in the EU can be guaranteed for these countries. For example, US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as the data subject being able to take legal action against such measures. It can therefore not be ruled out that US authorities (including intelligence services) process, evaluate and permanently store your data located on US servers for monitoring purposes. Such processing activities are beyond our control. 

Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations and procedures are permissible only with your express consent. You are free to revoke your consent at any time. The legality of data processing carried out until your revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right to object to data collection in special cases and to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)
IF DATA PROCESSING IS CARRIED OUT ON THE BASIS OF ART. 6 (1) (E) OR (F) GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA AT ANY TIME FOR REASONS ARISING FROM YOUR PARTICULAR SITUATION; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS. THE APPLICABLE LEGAL BASIS FOR DATA PROCESSING IS SPECIFIED IN THIS DATA PRIVACY NOTICE. IF YOU OBJECT, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA UNLESS WE CAN DEMONSTRATE COMPELLING LEGITIMATE GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING WHICH OVERRIDE YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS, OR WHERE PROCESSING SERVES THE PURPOSE OF ASSERTING, EXERCISING OR DEFENDING LEGAL CLAIMS (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ARTICLE 21 (1) GDPR).

IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS PROCESSED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA RELATING TO YOU FOR THE PURPOSE OF SUCH MARKETING. THE SAME APPLIES TO PROFILING INSOFAR AS IT IS PERFORMED IN CONJUNCTION WITH SUCH DIRECT MARKETING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING (RIGHT TO OBJECT PURSUANT TO ARTICLE 21 (2) GDPR).

Right to lodge a complaint with the applicable supervisory authority
In the event of any breaches of the GDPR, data subjects shall have a right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the member state of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged breach. The right of appeal exists without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.

Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically – subject to your consent or for the fulfillment of a contract – handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.

Information, correction and deletion
Subject to the pertinent legal provisions, you have the right at any time to obtain free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, a right to correction or deletion of this data. In this regard, as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, feel free to contact us at any time.

Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. For this purpose, you can contact us at any time. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data may – apart from being stored – only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of a major public interest of the European Union or one of its member states.

SSL or TLS encryption
This website uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and for protecting the transmission of confidential content, such as purchase orders or requests that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock icon displayed in your browser line. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Objection to advertising e-mails
The use of contact data, published within the framework of the legal notice obligation, for the delivery of advertising content and information material not expressly requested is hereby prohibited. The operators of the site expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited delivery of advertising and related content such as spam e-mails.

5. Analysis tools and advertising

Google Tag Manager
We use the Google Tag Manager. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. The Google Tag Manager is a tool that allows us to embed tracking or statistical tools and other technologies on our website. The Google Tag Manager itself does not create user profiles, nor does it store cookies or perform any independent analyses. It only serves to manage and play out the tools integrated via it. However, the Google Tag Manager records your IP address, which may also be transmitted to Google’s parent company in the United States. The use of the Google Tag Manager is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the rapid and straightforward integration and management of various tools on their website. Insofar as corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR and Art. 25 (1) TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information on the user’s terminal device (e.g. device fingerprinting) as defined by the TTDSG. Any such consent may be revoked at any time.

Google Analytics
This website uses functions of the Google Analytics web analysis service. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google Analytics allows the website operator to analyze the behavior of visitors to the website. It provides the website operator with various usage-related data such as page views, duration of visit, operating systems used and the location of the user. This data is assigned to the applicable end device of the user. However, the associated user ID is not acquired. Also, we can use Google Analytics to record things such as your mouse and scroll movements and clicks. Furthermore, Google Analytics uses various modeling approaches to supplement the data records collected and uses machine learning technologies for data analytics. Google Analytics uses user identification technologies for the purpose of analyzing user behavior (e.g. cookies or device fingerprinting). The information collected by Google about the use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The use of this service is subject to your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR and Art. 25 (1) TTDSG. Any such consent may be revoked at any time. The data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. For details, see: https://privacy.google.com/businesses/controllerterms/mccs/.

Browser plugin

If you want to prevent the collection and processing of your data by Google, you can download and install the browser opt-out plugin available at: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

For further information on the use of user data by Google Analytics, refer to the Google data privacy and security notice at: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.

Google Signals
We use Google Signals. When you visit our website, Google Analytics collects information such as your location, search history and YouTube history, as well as demographic data (visitor data). With the help of Google Signals, this data can be used for personalized advertising. If you have a Google account, Google Signals visitor data is linked to your Google account and used for personalized advertising messages. The data is also used to create anonymized statistics on the user behavior of our users. 

Order processing
We have concluded an order processing agreement with Google and we fully implement the stringent requirements of the German data security and protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

Google Analytics e-commerce measurements
This website uses the “e-commerce measurement” functionality provided by Google Analytics. By means of e-commerce measurement, the website operator can analyze the purchasing behavior of website visitors to improve their online marketing campaigns. This involves recording information such as orders placed, average order volume, shipping costs and the time from viewing to purchasing a product. This data can be summarized by Google under a transaction ID, which is assigned to the respective user or their device.

Google Ads
The website operator uses Google Ads. Google Ads is an online advertising program of Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google Ads enables us to play advertisements in the Google search engine or on third-party websites when the user enters certain search terms on Google (keyword targeting). Furthermore, targeted advertisements can be played on the basis of user data (such as location data and interests) available at Google (target group targeting). As the website operator, we can evaluate this data quantitatively by analyzing such things as which search terms have led to the display of our advertisements and how many ads have resulted in corresponding clicks. The use of this service is based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR and Art. 25 (1) TTDSG. Any such consent may be revoked at any time. Data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. For details, refer to:

Google Conversion Tracking
This website uses Google Conversion Tracking. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. By means of Google conversion tracking, Google and we can determine whether the user has performed certain actions. For instance, we are able to assess which can evaluate which buttons on our website were clicked how often and which products were viewed or purchased particularly frequently. This information is used to create conversion statistics. We learn the total number of users who clicked on our ads and what actions they took. We do not receive any information that would enable us to personally identify the user. Google itself uses cookies or similar identification technologies for identification purposes. The use of this service requires your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR and Art. 25 (1) TTDSG (Telecommunications-Telemedia Data Protection Act). Any such consent may be revoked at any time. For more information on Google Conversion Tracking, refer to the Google Privacy Policy at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

Meta Pixel (formerly known as Facebook Pixel)
This website uses the Facebook/Meta visitor action pixel for conversion tracking. The provider of this service is Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland. However, according to Facebook, the data collected is also transferred to the USA and other third countries. This allows the behavior of page visitors to be tracked after they have been redirected to the provider's website by clicking on a Facebook ad. This allows the effectiveness of the Facebook ads to be evaluated for statistical and market research purposes and future advertising measures to be optimized. The data thus collected remains anonymous for us as the operator of this website; we are not able to draw any conclusions about the identity of the users. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook, so that a link to the respective user profile may be established and Facebook may use this data for its own advertising purposes, in accordance with the Facebook Data Use Policy (https://facebook.com/about/privacy/). This allows Facebook to enable the placement of advertisements on Facebook pages as well as outside of Facebook. Such use of data is beyond our control as the site operator. The use of this service is based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR and Art. 25 (1) TTDSG. Any such consent may be revoked at any time. We use the advanced matching feature within Meta Pixels. Advanced matching allows us to transmit to Meta (Facebook) various types of data (e.g. city of residence, federal state, zip code, hashed email addresses, names, gender, date of birth, or phone number) of our customers and prospects that we collect via our website. This activation allows us to more precisely tailor our advertising campaigns on Facebook to people who are interested in our offerings. In addition, the enhanced matching improves the assignment of website conversions and extends Custom Audiences.

Insofar as personal data is collected on our website with the help of the tool described herein and forwarded to Facebook, we and Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland, are jointly responsible for such data processing (Art. 26 GDPR). This joint responsibility is limited to the collection and forwarding of data to Facebook. The processing by Facebook following the transfer is not part of our joint responsibility. The obligations incumbent on us jointly have been set out in a joint processing agreement addendum. You can find this agreement addendum at: https://www.facebook.com/legal/controller_addendum. According to this agreement addendum, we are responsible for providing the data privacy information when using the Facebook tool and for the data privacy compliant implementation of the tool on our website. Facebook is responsible for the data privacy compliance of Facebook products. You can assert data subject rights (e.g., requests for information) regarding data processed by Facebook directly with Facebook. If you assert the data subject rights with us, we are obliged to forward these to Facebook. Data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. For details, visit: https://www.facebook.com/legal/EU_data_transfer_addendum and https://www.facebook.com/help/566994660333381.

You can find further information on protecting your privacy in Facebook’s data privacy notices at: https://facebook.com/about/privacy/.

LinkedIn Insight tag
This website uses the LinkedIn Insight tag. The provider of this service is the LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Data processing with the LinkedIn Insight tag
By means of the LinkedIn Insight Tag, we obtain information about the visitors to our website. If a website visitor is registered with LinkedIn, we can analyze things such as key professional data (e.g., career level, company size, country, location, industry, and job title) of our website visitors, enabling us to better tailor our site to the respective target groups. Furthermore, we can use LinkedIn Insight tags to track whether visitors to our websites make a purchase or take any other action (conversion tracking). Conversion tracking works across multiple devices (e.g., from PC to tablet). Also, the LinkedIn Insight tag provides a retargeting feature that enables us to display targeted off-site advertising to visitors to our website. According to LinkedIn, this is done without any identification of the advertising addressee. LinkedIn itself also collects a number of log files (URL, referrer URL, IP address, device and browser properties and time of access). The IP addresses are shortened or (if they are used to reach LinkedIn members across devices) hashed (pseudonymized). The direct IDs of LinkedIn members are deleted by LinkedIn after seven days. The remaining pseudonymized data is then deleted within 180 days. The data collected by LinkedIn cannot be associated with specific individuals by us as the website operator. LinkedIn will store the collected personal data of website visitors on its servers in the USA and use it in the context of its own advertising measures. For details, refer to the LinkedIn privacy policy at https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy#choices-oblig.

YouTube with extended data privacy
This website draws on videos from the YouTube website. The operator of the pages is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. We use YouTube in extended data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode means that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video.

Thus, YouTube – regardless of whether you watch a video – establishes a connection to the Google DoubleClick network.

As soon as you start a YouTube video on this website, a connection to the YouTube servers is established, telling the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to associate your surfing behavior directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account. Furthermore, YouTube may save various cookies on your terminal device after starting a video or may use similar identification technologies (e.g. device fingerprinting).

The provider is Userlike UG (limited liability), Probsteigasse 44 - 46, 50670 Cologne, Germany. Messages that you send to us can be stored in the Userlike ticket system or answered in live chat by our employees. When you communicate with us via Userlike, we and Userlike store data – including your name and email address (if you have provided these) and your chat history. This data is collated in a profile. Messages sent to us remain with us until you request us to delete them or the purpose for storing said data no longer applies (after we have completed the processing of your request, for instance). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular legal retention periods ­– remain unaffected by the above. The use of Userlike is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in processing your requests as quickly, reliably and efficiently as possible. Provided that corresponding consent has been requested, processing is done exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR and Art. 25 (1) TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information on the user’s terminal device (e.g. device fingerprinting) as per TTDSG. Any such consent may be revoked at any time. For further information, refer to the Userlike data privacy notice: https://www.userlike.com/de/blog/live-chat-software-datenschutz-dsgvo.

Handling of applicant data

We offer you the opportunity to apply for a job at our company (e.g. by e-mail, by mail/post or via our online application form). In the following, we inform you about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected as part of the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing and use of your data will be carried out in compliance with applicable data privacy law and any other statutory provisions and that your data will be treated in strict confidence.

Scope and purpose of data collection

If you send us an application, we will process your associated personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes taken during interviews, etc.) insofar as this is necessary to decide on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this procedure Section 26 of the German General Data Protection Act (BDSG) under German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR (general contract initiation) and – if you have given your consent – Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR. Any such consent may be revoked at any time. Your personal data will only be passed on within our company to persons involved in the processing of your application. If your application is successful, the data submitted by you will be stored in our data processing systems on the basis of Section 26 of the German General Data Protection Act (BDSG) and Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship.

Data retention period
If we are not in a position to make you a job offer, if you reject a job offer, or if you withdraw your application, we reserve the right to retain the data you have provided on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR) for up to 6 months as of the end of the application process (rejection or withdrawal of the application). Subsequently, this data will be deleted and the physical application documents will be destroyed. Said data storage specifically serves to provide evidence in the event of a legal dispute. If it is apparent that the data will be required after the 6-month period has expired (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), the data will not be deleted until the purpose for continued storage no longer exists. Longer storage periods may also apply if you have given your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR) or if regulatory storage requirements and obligations rule out deletion.

Acceptance to our applicant pool
Even if we do not make you a job offer, there is the option of including you in our applicant pool. If you are accepted to the applicant pool, all documents and details from your application will be transferred to this pool so we can contact you in the event of suitable vacancies. Inclusion in the applicant pool is based exclusively on your express consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR). The provision of consent is voluntary and is not related to the current application process. The applicant is free to revoke their application at any time. In this case, your data will be irrevocably deleted from the applicant pool, unless regulatory requirements call for retention. The data from the applicant pool will be irrevocably deleted no later than two years after consent has been given.
