We are pleased about your interest in our company and our products and services and would like you to feel safe when visiting our Internet pages, also with regard to the protection of your personal data. We take the protection of your personal data very seriously and regard it as an asset worth protecting. It goes without saying that we observe the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act and the DSGVO/GDPR. We believe that you should know when we collect which data and how we use it. We have taken technical and organizational measures to ensure that the regulations on data protection are observed both by us and by external service providers. The data processing on this website is carried out by the website operator. His contact details can be found in the imprint of this website.
Personal data is all the information that determines your identity. This includes, for example, information such as name, address, telephone number and e-mail address. In order to use our website, it is not necessary for you to disclose personal data. In some cases, however, we do need your name and address and other information so that we can provide the requested services. Should you make use of such services, as a rule only such data is collected as is absolutely necessary for us to provide the services. If we ask you for further data, this is voluntary information. The processing of personal data is carried out exclusively to provide the requested service and to protect our own legitimate business interests.
Purpose of the personal data
The personal data you provide us with will be used by us to answer your inquiries, process your orders or to provide you with access to specific information or offers. We will neither sell your personal data to third parties nor market it in any other way.
We will collect, process and use the personal data you provide online only for the purposes you have been informed about. Your personal data will not be disclosed to third parties without your necessary consent. The collection of personal data and its transmission to state institutions and authorities entitled to receive information will only take place within the framework of the relevant laws or if we are obliged to do so by a court decision. Our employees and the service companies commissioned by us are obliged by us to maintain secrecy and to comply with the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act and the GDPR.
Non-personal data that is collected automatically
When using our internet pages, the following data is stored for organisational and technical reasons: the names of the pages called up, the browser and operating system used, date and time of access, search engines used, names of downloaded files and your IP address. We evaluate these technical data anonymously and only for statistical purposes in order to constantly optimize our Internet presence and make our Internet offers even more attractive. This anonymous data is stored separately from personal information on secure systems and does not allow any conclusions about an individual person. Your personal data and your privacy are therefore protected at all times.
This website is hosted by an external service provider (hoster). The personal data collected on this website is stored on the hoster’s servers. This may include, but is not limited to, IP addresses, contact requests, meta and communication data, contract data, contact details, names, website accesses and other data generated by a website. The use of the hoster is for the purpose of fulfilling the contract with our potential and existing customers (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR) and in the interest of a secure, fast and efficient provision of our online offer by a professional provider (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). Our hoster will only process your data to the extent necessary to fulfill its performance obligations and will follow our instructions with regard to this data.
Note on data transfer to the USA
Among other things, our website includes tools from companies based in the USA. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to the US servers of these companies. We would like to point out that the USA is not a safe third country in terms of EU data protection law. US companies are obliged to release personal data to security authorities without you as the affected party being able to take legal action against this. Therefore, it cannot be excluded that US authorities (e.g. secret services) may process, evaluate and permanently store your data on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.
When you visit one of our websites, we may store information on your computer in the form of a cookie. Cookies are small text files that are sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. No personal data of the user is stored, only the internet protocol address. This information is used to automatically recognize you the next time you visit our websites and to make navigation easier for you. Cookies allow us, for example, to adapt a website to your interests or to store your password so that you do not have to enter it again each time.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. These are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on the terminal device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser on your next visit.
Of course you can also view our websites without cookies. If you do not want us to recognize your computer, you can prevent cookies from being stored on your hard drive by selecting “do not accept cookies” in your browser settings. Please refer to the instructions of your browser manufacturer for details of how this works. If you do not accept cookies, however, this can lead to functional restrictions of our offers.
The provider of the site automatically collects and stores information in the so-called server log files, which your browser automatically sends to us. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Hostname of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
These data cannot be assigned to specific persons. A consolidation of the data with other data sources is not carried out. We reserve the right to check this data subsequently if we become aware of concrete indications of illegal use.

Suitable technical and organizational measures ensure that your personal data is treated confidentially within the legal requirements. When filling out your online application, please note that the data is transmitted unencrypted by e-mail and that the data may be accessed or falsified by unauthorized persons. You are welcome to send us your documents by post. If you have applied for a specific position and this position has already been filled, or if we consider you equally or even better suited for another position, we would be happy to forward your application within our company. Please inform us if you do not agree with this procedure. At the end of the application process, but after 9 months at the latest, your personal data will be automatically deleted, unless you expressly agree to storage for a longer period of time.
When collecting personal data, we observe the principle of data avoidance and data economy, i.e. when contacting us, for example via a corresponding form, personal data is only collected and stored to the extent necessary. The collection of personal data is only carried out with your prior consent. Your data will be stored exclusively for the establishment, execution or termination of a contractual or quasi-contractual business relationship and will be used for the agreed purpose and scope. You can revoke your consent at any time, with effect for the future. After revocation we will delete the data concerned.
Insofar as personal data (name, address, e-mail addresses, etc.) is collected on our website, for example via contact forms, this is done on a voluntary basis. The collected data will not be passed on or sold to third parties without your express consent. You can send your revocation to the operator of these websites mentioned in the imprint under the provider identification.
We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereinafter “reCAPTCHA”) on this website. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
The purpose of reCAPTCHA is to check whether the data input on this website (e.g. in a contact form) is done by a human being or by an automated program. For this purpose, reCAPTCHA analyzes the behavior of the website visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website. For analysis purposes, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, time spent on the website or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis is forwarded to Google.
The reCAPTCHA analyses run completely in the background. Website visitors are not notified that an analysis is taking place.
The storage and analysis of the data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting his web offers from abusive automated spying and from SPAM. If the appropriate consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.
Newsletter ("Sendinblue" former “Newsletter2Go” )
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Further data will not be collected. We use these data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass them on to third parties. You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address as well as its use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example by clicking the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter.
Newsletters are sent using “Newsletter2Go“, an e-mail marketing platform of the service provider Sendinblue GmbH, Köpenicker Straße 126, Berlin, Germany. The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients and other personal data obtained as part of this information about the newsletter is stored on Sendinblue servers in Germany. Sendinblue uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter in our order. Furthermore, Sendinblue may, according to its own information, use this data to optimise or improve its own services, e.g. for the tech-nical optimisation of shipping and the presentation of newsletters or for economic purposes, to determine which countries the recipients come from. However, Sendinblue does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them themselves and does not share the data with third parties. Subcontractors and subsidiaries are excluded from this.
The legal basis for the inclusion of Sendinblue is Art. 6 Para. 1 (a) GDPR and Art. 13 Para. 1 FADP.
We have integrated YouTube videos into our website, which are stored on http://www.YouTube.com and can be played directly from our website. These are all integrated in the “extended data protection mode”, i.e. no data about you as a user will be transmitted to YouTube, if you do not click on the videos to start playing them. Only when you play the videos the data referred to in the next paragraph will be transferred to YouTube. We have no influence on this data transfer.
https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy. Transfers to third countries are possible. As an appropriate safeguard standard contractual clauses pursuant to Art. 46 GDPR apply.

Google Ads (formerly Google Adwords)
Google Ads Conversion
We use the services of Google Ads to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising materials (so-called Google Ads) on external websites. We can determine in relation to the data of the advertising campaigns how successful the individual advertising measures are. We are interested in showing you advertisements that are of interest to you, to make our website more interesting for you and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs. The advertising materials are delivered by Google via so-called “Ad Servers”. For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, through which certain parameters for measuring success, such as the insertion of ads or clicks by users, can be measured. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Ads stores a cookie on your device. These cookies usually expire after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. For this cookie, the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (mark that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values.
These cookies enable Google to recognize your Internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of an Ads customer's website and the cookie stored on their device has not expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page. Each Ads customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be traced via the websites of Ads customers. We do not collect and process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. On the basis of these evaluations we can recognize which of the used advertising measures are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of advertising material; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information.
Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically starts a direct connection to the Google server. We have no influence on the extent and the further use of the data which are raised by the use of this tool by Google and inform you therefore according to our knowledge: By the integration of Ads conversion Google receives the information that you called the appropriate part of our Internet appearance or clicked an announcement of us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google may associate your visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the providers may obtain and store your IP address.
Google Ads Remarketing
We use the remarketing function within the Google Ads service. The remarketing function allows us to present to users of our website advertisements based on their interests on other websites within the Google advertising network (in Google search or on YouTube, so-called “Google ads” or on other websites). For this purpose, the interaction of users on our website is analyzed, e.g. which offers the user was interested in, in order to be able to display targeted advertising to users even after visiting our website on other pages. To do this, Google stores cookies in the browsers of users who visit certain Google services or websites in the Google Display Network. This cookie is used to record the visits of these users. The number is used to uniquely identify a web browser on a particular device.
Used Cookies: Type C. For further information, see Cookie Section.
https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy;Transfers to third countries are possible. As an appropriate safeguard standard contractual clauses pursuant to Art. 46 GDPR apply.

Data protection provisions about the application and use of Xing
On this website, the controller has integrated components of XING. The operating company of XING is XING SE, Dammtorstraße 30, 20354 Hamburg, Germany. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and on which a XING component (XING plug-in) was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to download a display of the corresponding XING component of XING. Further information about the XING plug-in the may be accessed under https://dev.xing.com/plugins. During the course of this technical procedure, XING gains knowledge of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject. If the data subject is logged in at the same time on XING, XING detects with every call-up to our website by the data subject—and for the entire duration of their stay on our Internet site—which specific sub-page of our Internet page was visited by the data subject. This information is collected through the XING component and associated with the respective XING account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on the XING button integrated on our Internet site, e.g. the "Share"-button, then XING assigns this information to the personal XING user account of the data subject and stores the personal data. XING receives information via the XING component that the data subject has visited our website, provided that the data subject is logged in at XING at the time of the call to our website. This occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on the XING component or not. If such a transmission of information to XING is not desirable for the data subject, then he or she can prevent this by logging off from their XING account before a call-up to our website is made. The data protection provisions published by XING, which is available under https://www.xing.com/privacy, provide information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by XING. In addition, XING has published privacy notices for the XING share button under https://www.xing.com/app/share?op=data_protection.
