In the context of the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right to access information about the data stored concerning you at any time and free of charge.
Furthermore, you have the right to obtain from us the rectification, restriction (blocking) or erasure of your personal data if the personal data has been unlawfully processed by us, there are legitimate grounds for restricting further processing or the data processing has become unlawful on different grounds, or if the storage of your personal data is inadmissible on other legal grounds.

If you demand the direct transmission of data to another controller, this shall only occur where it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
For reasons of security and to protect the sending of confidential content, such as for example, the orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can identify an encrypted connection from the padlock symbol in your browser bar and the fact that the ‘http://’ in the address bar changes to ‘https://’.

Withdrawal of your consent to data processing
It should be noted that you can withdraw your consent to the processing of your data by us at any time and with future effect. An informal communication by e-mail shall be sufficient to withdraw your consent. The lawfulness of the data processing carried out based on your consent before the withdrawal shall remain unaffected by the withdrawal.

This is the case if the processing is not required for the fulfilment of a contract with you. When exercising your right to object, we ask that you provide a reason as to why we should not continue to process your data.

2. Data collection on our website
Our website sometimes uses so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your end device or contain viruses. They are designed to make our services more user-friendly, more effective and more secure.
Cookies are small text files which make it possible to store information on your end device that relates specifically to you whilst you are using our website. Cookies remain stored on your device after the browser session has ended and can be retrieved when the website is visited again. If you do not want cookies stored on your device, you should adjust your browser settings to disable cookies.
Cookies which are required for electronic communication or to provide you with certain functions (for example, the shopping basket function) are stored based on Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in storing cookies to optimise our services and to ensure that they work properly.
Types of Cookies
Our website uses the following types of cookie for which the scope and how they work are subsequently explained: Session cookies and persistent cookies.
The difference between ‘session cookies’ and ‘persistent cookies’ is their lifespan. Whilst ‘session cookies’ only last for the duration of the browser session, ‘persistent cookies’ are stored after the respective browser session has ended. So when you close your browser, ‘session cookies’ are deleted but ‘persistent cookies’ are not. In fact, the latter are stored until their respective expiration date. Therefore, a ‘persistent cookie’ is activated every time you visit that particular website unless you delete the ‘persistent cookie’ manually beforehand.
Our website uses the following two persistent cookies: the WordPress Multilingual Plug-in which identifies the language and is stored for 3 days, and a cookie plug-in which is stored for 1 year with the acceptance or rejection of cookie storage.
Disabling cookies in the browser settings
You can also determine whether cookies may be placed and retrieved in your browser’s settings. You can completely disable the storage of cookies in your browser, restrict it to certain websites, or configure your browser so that you are automatically notified as soon as a cookie should be placed and are then asked to confirm whether the cookie in question may be placed.
You will find more information about cookies on the website www.allaboutcookies.org. There you will find instructions for the settings of the most common browsers. You can also obtain further information from your browser’s provider. You can find more information about how to delete cookies in your browser on the website http://www.aboutcookies.org/Default.aspx?page=2 as well as from your browser’s provider.
Server log files
If you visit our website purely for informational purposes, in principle, it is not essential that you provide personal data. In this case, we only collect and process that personal data which your browser automatically transmits to our server. This is stored in what are called server log files. If you look at our website, we collect the following data which we technically require to display our website and to guarantee its stability and security. These are:
• Browser type and browser version
• Operating system used
• Referrer URL
• Host name of the computer accessing the site

The processing of this personal data for the purpose of displaying our website in a stable and secure way represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.

You have the option of enquiring about our products via e-mail or by using our contact form.
If you send us an enquiry via e-mail or the contact form, the data you enter into the enquiry form will be stored, including the contact details you provide, so that the enquiry can be processed and any follow-up questions dealt with. We will not share this personal data with third parties without your consent.
We collect your first and last name, your e-mail address and your message. You can also provide us with additional personal data voluntarily, such as for example, your telephone number, so that your enquiry can be processed.
The legal basis for this data processing, depending on your enquiry, is Sentence 1 of Article 6(1)(b) or (f) GDPR.
We store the personal data you provide via e-mail or on the contact form until the purpose for the data storage no longer exists (for example, after your enquiry has been processed) or if you object to the data processing on legitimate grounds. Storage on the grounds of statutory provisions – in particular, retention periods – shall remain unaffected by this.
If, in the context of your speculative application, you provide us with personal data via e-mail or the contact form, we process this for the sole purpose of establishing an employment relationship. Personal data which is regularly provided to us in the context of speculative applications includes: First and last name, address details (street, postcode, city), contact details (telephone and mobile number, e-mail address), date of birth, CV, evidence of qualifications.
The legal basis for this data processing is Sentence 1 of Article 6(1)(b) GDPR.
If no statutory retention requirements (Section 257 Handelsgesetzbuch [German Commercial Code] (HGB), Section 147 Abgabenordnung [Fiscal Code of Germany] (AO)) apply, applicants’ personal data is deleted from our database and our other systems six calendar months after the end of the application process (day of rejection) or blocked from further processing. Print-outs are destroyed.

3. Plugins and Tools
Our website uses the service ‘Google Fonts’ from Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, to display the text on our website in an optimum way. When visiting our website, the fonts required by Google to display it are downloaded to your browser. To do this, connection data, such as your IP address, information on the browser used, the site making the request and, if necessary, other technical data, is transmitted to Google.
The browser used by you must communicate with Google’s servers for this purpose. For this reason, Google knows that our website was requested from your IP address. We use Google Fonts in the interests of presenting our online services in a consistent and appealing way. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.
If your browser does not support Google Fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.

To use the Google Maps functions, it is necessary to store your IP address. This information is usually transferred to a Google Inc. server in the USA, where it is stored. We have no influence over this transfer of data.
We use Google Maps in the interests of presenting our online services in an appealing way and of making it easier to find the locations given on our website. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.
Transmissions to third countries and legal bases
Both in the case of Google Fonts and Google Maps, data transfers to other countries outside of the European Union, in particular the USA, take place. If the applicable data protection law in the respective third country does not have an adequate level of data protection in terms of the GDPR, we have ensured an adequate level of data protection in terms of the GDPR through contractual regulations or other recognised instruments. If a transfer of personal data to a third country takes place, this occurs on the basis of the EU Commission’s adequacy decision on the EU-US Privacy Shield in accordance with Article 45 GDPR or on the basis of the EU standard data protection clauses in accordance with Article 46(2)(c) GDPR.
