In order to make visiting my website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, I use so-called cookies on various pages. These are small text files that are stored on your device. Some of the cookies used by me will be deleted after the end of the browser session, i.e. after closing your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your device and allow me or my partner companies (third-party cookies) to recognize your browser the next time you visit (persistent cookies). If cookies are set, they collect and process certain user information to an individual extent, such as browser such as browser and location data and IP address values. Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time, which may vary depending on the cookie.

Insofar as personal data is also processed by individual cookies implemented by me, the processing is carried out in accordance with Art.6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO either for the execution of the contract or in accordance with Art. 6, Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO to protect my legitimate interests in the best possible functionality of the website and a customer-friendly and effective design of the site visit.

As part of contacting me (e.g. by contact form or e-mail) personal data is collected. Which data is collected in the case of a contact form, can be seen from the respective contact form. These data are stored solely for the purpose of responding to your inquiry or to contact and the associated technical administration. The legal basis for the processing of the data is my legitimate interest in answering your request in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 Lit. f DSGVO. If your contact aims at the conclusion of a contract, an additional legal basis for the processing of Art. 6 Para. Lit. b DSGVO. Your data will be deleted your request after the final processing of your request, this is the case, if it can be concluded from the circumstances, that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified and provided that there are no legal obligations to retain data.



Use of your data for applications


As part of the application procedure I collect and process personal data, also electronically. Legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 Para. Lit. b or f DSGVO. Purpose is to carry out that application procedure. If a contract is concluded with an applicant, the personal data already processed will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship. The legal requirements are observed. The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purpose of their collection. If, on the other hand, no contract is concluded with the applicant, the person responsible will delete the personal data two months after he/she has announced the rejection. This is only valid subject to other justified interests that conflict with the deletion. One such legitimate interest is to be assumed when the personal data is required to comply with a burden of proof in a process according to the general principle of equal treatment. The user always has the possibility to terminate the application process and thus the processing of his personal data at any time. All personal data that has been stored as part of the application process will be deleted in this case, unless the user has a previously mentioned interest in storing them.
