This data privacy statement intends to explain to you what data we collect from you as a user of our website and how we handle your information. We take the protection of your personal details very seriously and follow the applicable data protection terms. Specifically, this means that we only collect, process or use personal details if you have given us your permission to use the data or if the law permits data processing. If you have any questions or comments about this data privacy statements, please contact us at email@example.com.
Basically, you use our pages anonymously. Certain parts of our offering, such as downloading specific apps from the App Center, require the registration as a user. In other places, we offer voluntary registration, which is done by sending us your name, e-mail address and possibly further data. If you register in this form, we collect and process the provided data to optimize our offering, for example, in order to contact you by e-mail or newsletter but also for the purpose of performing the contract. This data will be passed on, in particular, to the respective contractual partner whose offer you use, for example, via the App Center. By entering the data in the appropriate forms, you consent to this.
If you access the contents of our website, you will be communicating with our servers via the internet. This creates logfiles on our system, in which the IP address and the date and time of your visit are saved. These are only used by us to better analyse and rectify breakdowns in the availability of our servers and to improve our services to you.
We use so-called session cookies. Session cookies are small units of information, which we save on the main memory of your computer. A randomly-generated, unique identification number is stored in a session cookie; this is known as the session ID. This type of cookie also contains information about its origin and retention period. These cookies cannot save any other data. The session cookies are deleted as soon as you finish your session.
3. Analysis tools
If you do not agree with the storage and evaluation of this data from your visit, you can subsequently object to the storage and usage at any time under “Privacy Settings”.
4. Data Security
We use technical and organisational security measures to guarantee that your personal details are protected from loss, incorrect modifications and unauthorised access by third parties. Moreover, we only allow authorised people to gain access to your personal details and only to the degree necessary as part of the contractual purposes.
You have the possibility to apply via our website for advertised positions. You determine yourself the scope of the data that you wish to transmit to us as part of your online application.
We process your personal data in accordance with the applicable data protection regulations on the basis of § 26 BDSG. We process the data that you disclose to us within the scope of your online application exclusively for the purpose of applicant selection. Data will not be processed for any other purpose.
Online applications will be forwarded to our personnel department and the respective heads of the relevant departments. The transmission is encrypted. Of course, we treat your data as confidential. We use strictly instruction-bound service providers who support us in the areas of EDP and with whom separate contracts for order processing have been concluded. Beyond that, a passing on of your data does not take place. If your application is unsuccessful, your documents will be deleted after 6 months.
In individual cases, individual data may be stored for a longer period of time (for example, as to travel expense settlement). In these cases, the duration of the storage depends on the legal storage obligations, e.g., defined by the German Tax Code (6 years) or the German Commercial Code (10 years).
If you have not been hired, but your application is still of interest to us, we will ask you whether we may retain your application for future vacancies. We will then process your data on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.
Embedded YouTube Videos
On some subpages we embed YouTube videos into our website. Visiting these subpages leads to content being loaded from YouTube.

However, when embedding the videos, we have taken care to activate the extended privacy mode offered by YouTube.
