Automatically saved data 

Server log files 

The provider of the page automatically collects and saves information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • date and time of the request,
  • name and the requested file,
  • page from which the file was requested,
  • access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.),
  • web browser used and operating system used,
  • complete IP address of the requesting computer,
  • amount of data transmitted.

This data is not combined with other data sources. Processing is performed in accordance with Art. 6, Para. 1, lit. 1 of the GDPR on the basis of our justified interests and improvement to the stability and functionality of our website.   
This data is temporarily saved by us for reasons of technical security, especially for defense against attempts to attack our web servers. Inference to an individual is not possible for us based on this data. After seven days, at the latest, the data is made anonymous through truncation of the IP address such that it is no longer possible to establish a relationship to an individual user. The data is also processed in anonymous format for statistical purposes; comparison with other datasets or forwarding to a third party does not take place, even in excerpts. 

Cookies

When you visit our website, we may possibly save information from your computer in the form of cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called Cookie ID. A Cookie ID is an unambiguous ID of the cookie. It consists of a series of characters through which Internet pages and servers can be allocated to specific Internet browsers in which the cookie is saved. This makes it possible for the Internet pages and servers to differentiate between individual browsers of the data subjects from other Internet browsers, which contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified using the unmistakable Cookie ID. 

By using session cookies, the responsible person can provide the users of this Internet page user friendly service, which would be impossible without cookies. Without consent, we solely use technically necessary cookies on the legal basis of justified interests in accordance with Art. 6, Para. 1, lit. 1 GDPR.

(1) Where needed we have integrated videos from Vimeo LLC with headquarters at 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York, 10011.

(2) Videos from Vimeo are on some of our web pages. When you call up such and Internet page from your Internet presence, a connection is made to the Vimeo servers. Through this, the Internet pages you visited are transmitted to the Vimeo servers. If you are a member of Vimeo, Vimeo allocates this information to your personal user account. Upon clicking on the start button of a video, this information can also be allocated to an existing user account. You can avoid this allocation in that you disable your Vimeo user account and delete the applicable cookies from Vimeo prior to using our Internet page.

Users can also prevent the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and data related to the use of the website (including your IP address) to Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google in that you download and install the available browser plug in: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

We collect and process the following data within the framework of our job application process:

In doing so we observe the basic principle of data minimization and data avoidance in that you only need to divulge the data we need for complete review of your application documents, such as an application letter, your resume, references and or qualification certificates or to the processing of which we are lawfully obligated. The mandatory input is marked with * (an asterisk). Due to technical necessity and our legal protection, your IP address is also processed.
