1. THE REASONS FOR RECORDING DATA

We record and process your data to make our website available and to enable you to have the best possible service by making our services accessible for you.

2. WHICH DATA IS RECORDED, PROCESSED OR USED?

If you contact us via the contact form, and choose to contact us via e-mail, you will have to submit your first name, surname and your e-mail address and message to us. Insofar as you choose to contact us by telephone, you will have to give us your first name, surname and telephone number. The obligatory information will be marked with an asterisk. All additional information submitted will be voluntary. The data will be saved for the purposes of handling your enquiry. All other boxes are for voluntary information. We shall not pass on such information without your consent. The data we receive in connection with this will be deleted when it no longer needs to be saved, or we shall restrict processing if we are required by law to retain the information for a specific period of time. The legal basis upon which your personal data is processed is Article 6, Para 1 f DSGVO.

3. DELETION

Personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for which it has been saved no longer applies or if you insist that it is deleted. The data will also be deleted in those cases in which the period of time for which it must be saved as specified by the above regulation expires, unless the information still has to be retained to enter into or fulfil a contract or if you have granted your consent with regard to it being retained.

4. COOKIES

Cookies are used so that the use of websites and preferences of website visitors can be made more appealing. As a result of using cookies the information you submit regarding your choice of language is saved. Cookies are text files placed on your hard disk to make it possible to identify your browser should you revisit the website.

You may prevent cookies from being saved on your hard disk by amending your browser settings accordingly. Cookies already saved on your hard disk may be deleted at any time. You can find out how to delete cookies or prevent them from being saved on your hard disk in your browser instructions. If you do not accept cookies this may consequently result in our webpages being less easy to use. The legal basis upon which cookies are processed is dealt with in Article 6 Para 1 f) DSGVO.

5. DATA SECURITY

We secure our website and other systems by taking technical and organisational steps to prevent loss, destruction, modification or distribution of your data by unauthorised persons. Data transmission will depend upon using a browser having from 128 bit to 256 SSL encryption. In spite of conducting regular checks and adopting a policy of continual improvement of our security measures it is not possible to ensure full protection against all risks.

6. THE USE OF GOOGLE ANALYTICS FOR WEBSITE ANALYSIS

This website uses Google Analytics, a website analysis service provided by Google Inc. (www.google.de). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, text files which are saved on your computer, enabling you to conduct an analysis of website traffic. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website will, as a rule, be sent to a server in the USA and saved there. In cases in which the IP anonymisation on this website is activated, your IP address will however be abbreviated within the member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission by Google. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a server in the USA and abbreviated there. The IP anonymisation is active on this website. Google will use this information as instructed by the operator of this website to analyse your use of this website with the aim of compiling reports about website activities and in order to provide additional services associated with website use and internet use for the website operator. The IP address transmitted from your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data by Google. You may prevent cookies from being saved on your hard disk by setting your browser software accordingly. We would however point out that in this case you may possibly not be able to have full use of all functions in this website. Data will be deleted after 28 months.

Moreover, you may prevent the data generated by the cookie relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being transmitted to Google and being processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available on the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

As an alternative to the browser plug-in you may click on the button at end of this page to prevent information about the use of this website by you from being recorded in future by Google Analytics. In doing so an opt-out cut-Cookie will be placed on your terminal. If you delete your cookies you will have to click on the link again.

The terms and conditions of use and data protection information can be found at google.com/analytics/terms/us.html or at policies.google.com/?hl=en

7. APPLICATIONS

We also collect and process personal data from applicants for the purposes of handling the application procedure carried out by us. In doing so processing may also be carried out electronically. This will always be the case if the applicant sends in application documents electronically to us, that is, by e-mail or through a web form set up on our website. The application portal will be operated on our behalf by the firm BITE GmbH at
Resi-Weglein-Gasse 9, 89077 Ulm (https://www.b-ite.de/). If we enter into an employment contract with an applicant, the forwarded data will be saved in compliance with the statutory regulations for the purposes of handling the employment relationship. If, however, an employment contract does not materialise between us and the applicant, the application documents will be deleted four months after we have announced that the application has been unsuccessful, provided that the responsible body does not have any justified interests contrary to deletion. For these purposes another justified interest is, for example, the obligation to submit evidence in proceedings in accordance with the German General Equal Treatment Act (AGG). We want to assess all applicants solely on the basis of their qualifications, experience and suitability and would therefore request that, if at all possible, applicants refrain from submitting any information in their application about race and ethnic origins, political opinions, religious beliefs or other ideology, genetic data, biometric data making it possible to identify the applicant, health records or information about one's sex life or sexual orientation.
