Purpose of Data Processing by Competent Section and Third Parties

We process your personal data exclusively for the purposes listed in this Data Protection Declaration. There is no disclosure of personal data to third parties for purposes other than those quoted. We transmit your personal data to third parties only if or when:

  • you have granted us your explicit consent,
  • processing is required to perform a contract with you,
  • processing is required to comply with a legal obligation

when processing is required to safeguard our legitimate interest and there is no reason to assume a major protection-worthy interest in the non-disclosure of your data.

Logging of General Information on Website Visits

When you access our website, information of a general nature is logged automatically by way of cookies. Such information (server logfiles) includes

  • the IP address of the visitor,
  • visitor searches (the HTTP search method used, the file searched for, the version of the HTTP protocol used),
  • the referrer URL,
  • the domain called up by the visitor,
  • the time of access and the time zone

and similar. These are exclusively data which do not allow tracking you.

These data are technically necessary for the correct downloading of the web contents requested by you and are generated obligatorily when surfing the web. They are processed in particular for the following purposes:

  • To assure the reliable establishment of a connection with our website,
  • To assure the trouble-free use of our website,
  • To evaluate system security and stability, and
  • For other administrative purposes.

The processing of personal data is due to our legitimate interest in the above-stated data logging purposes. Your data are not used to ascertain your identity. Only the competent section and possible contracted data processors are the recipients of your data.

Anonymous information of this kind may be statistically evaluated by us to optimize our web presence and the underlying technology.


Like many other websites, we too make use of so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files that are deposited on your PC by a web server. This provides us automatically with certain information like your IP address, the browser and operating system you use and your Internet connection.

Cookies cannot be used to start programs or infect a computer with a virus. The information contained in the cookies allows us to facilitate your navigation and permits the correct display of our web pages.

Data logged by us will positively not be transmitted to a third party nor will a link with personal data be created without your consent. Of course, in principle, you can also access our website without using cookies. Web browsers are routinely set to accept cookies automatically. In general, you can disable the acceptance of cookies by your browser at any time. Please consult the help functions of your browser to learn how to change these settings. Please note, however, that some functions of our website may no longer be available if the use of cookies is disabled.

SSL Encryption 

To ensure the integrity of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption protocols (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.

Contact Form

If you contact us through the contact form on the “JOBS WITH US“ page, you are thereby giving us your voluntary consent to enter into contact with you. This requires the supply of a valid email address. This serves to allocate the application and subsequent reply to you. The data provided by you are stored by us for the purpose of processing the application and possible subsequent employment. These data are not transferred without your consent.

Use of Script Libraries (Google Fonts)

 To display the contents of our pages correctly and visually appealing in all browsers, this website uses script and font libraries as e.g. Google Fonts ( To prevent multiple loading, Google Fonts are loaded into the cache of your browser. If your browser does not support Google Fonts or blocks access to them, contents is displayed in a standard font.

The selection of a script or font library automatically activates a link to the library operator whereby it is theoretically feasible – currently it is not yet clear if and for what possible purpose – that data will be logged by the operators of such libraries.

The data protection guideline of the Google library operator can be found at

Use of Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps API for the visual display of geographical data. When using Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data on the use of map functions by the visitor. Further details on the data processing by Google can be found in Google’s Data Protection Notes ( You can also change your privacy settings using the various links on the various topics given there.

Amendments of Our Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to amend the present privacy policy to ensure that they reflect current legal requirements at all times or to adapt them to changes in our services, e.g. when introducing new services. On a subsequent visit to our website, the updated privacy policy then apply.
