VI. Further services and functions

Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
Google Analytics enables the website operator to analyze the behavior of website visitors. In doing so, the website operator receives various usage data, such as page views, duration of visit, operating systems used and origin of the user. This data may be summarized by Google in a profile that is assigned to the respective user or their end device.
Google Analytics uses technologies that enable the recognition of the user 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 analysis tool is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize both its website and its advertising. If a corresponding consent has been requested (e.g. consent to store cookies), the processing is based exclusively on Art. 6 (1) a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.

Data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. Details can be found here:

IP Anonymisation

We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. This means that your IP address is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be 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 will not be merged with other data from Google.

Browser Plugin

You can prevent the collection and processing of your data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link:

Storage duration

Data stored by Google at user and event level that is linked to cookies, user identifiers (e.g. User ID) or advertising IDs (e.g. DoubleClick cookies, Android advertising ID) is anonymized or deleted after 14 months. For details, please see the following link:

Google Conversion Tracking

This website uses Google Conversion Tracking. The provider is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
With the help of Google conversion tracking, Google and we can recognize whether the user has performed certain actions. For example, we 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 with which we can personally identify the user. Google itself uses cookies or comparable recognition technologies for identification. The use of Google conversion tracking is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize both its website and its advertising. If a corresponding consent has been requested (e.g. consent to store cookies), the processing is based exclusively on Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.

More information on Google conversion tracking can be found in Google's privacy policy:

VII. Data protection for applications and in the application process

We processed the personal data of applicants for the purpose of the application process. Processing can also be done electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends the relevant application documents to the person responsible by electronic means, for example by email or via an online form on the website. If we conclude an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If we do not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted four months after the announcement of the rejection decision, provided that there are no other legitimate interests of the person responsible for deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, an obligation to provide evidence in a procedure under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG). The legal basis for the processing of personal data in the context of application procedures is Art. 6 (1) lit. a. of the GDPR, provided that you have given your consent, otherwise Art. 6 (1) lit. b of the GDPR in conjunction with § 26 BDSG (German Federal Data Protection Act) and beyond, insofar as the processing serves the purpose of fulfilling legal obligations, Art. 6 (1) lit. c. of the GDPR.

Our application portal is operated by the company softgarden e-recruiting GmbH on our behalf. You will therefore be transferred from this website to the application portal operated by softgarden.

VIII. Security of your data

We use technical and organisational security measures in accordance with the legal requirements in order to best protect the data you provide against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons.

IX. Storage period

Unless otherwise stated in the individual information, the person responsible processes personal data in accordance with the statutory provisions for the purposes presented here and only as long as a personal identification of the person concerned is required for the respective purpose. This is followed by deletion or neutralisation/anonymisation in line with data privacy requirements.

X. Linked content/sharing functions

This website may contain links to third party websites. By clicking on the respective link, you leave our website and the scope of this Privacy Policy. The respective privacy policies and data protection notices of the respective operators of the linked websites apply. The respective operator is responsible for data processing practice on third-party platforms.

XI. XING and LinkedIn

We use XING, a service of New Work SE, Am Strandkai 1, 20457 Hamburg, Germany, as well as LinkedIn, a service of LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland, to communicate with you and other interested parties and to inform you there about us, for example, about our business activities or vacancies.

In the process, cookies may be stored on your computers by the respective service provider, in which the usage behavior is saved. This user data is made available to us by XING/LinkedIn anonymized and aggregated for evaluation. Furthermore, we only process the data records that you provide to us via XING/LinkedIn.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data in the context of providing the XING or LinkedIn service is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. Our interest lies in informing you about current job offers. It is also possible that we want to inform you about current events via the respective service.

If you also provide data records via XING/LinkedIn, the legal basis is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR. If we use information provided by you to establish, implement or process a contractual relationship, the legal basis is Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR, and in the case of employment relationships Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR in connection with § 26 BDSG.

We delete your data that you have provided to us via XING/LinkedIn when the purpose no longer applies. Since contacting us via XING/LinkedIn can have different purposes, the storage period depends largely on the reason for your contact.

For the time of deletion of your data, for which XING or LinkedIn is responsible, please refer to the privacy policy of XING/LinkedIn:



As a rule, we do not pass on data that we have received from you via XING/LinkedIn to third parties. Regarding the data transfer by the respective service provider, we refer to the respective privacy policy of the provider.

Revocation of data processing based on consent is possible at any time. With regard to the assertion of rights (e.g. data subject rights), we would like to point out that these can ideally be asserted against the respective service provider. This is because the respective service providers have access to the users' data and can take appropriate measures and provide information directly. You can additionally prevent data processing by neither clicking on the XING/LinkedIn icon on our website nor visiting our channel via XING/LinkedIn.
