- Time of server enquiry
- IP address
This data cannot be assigned to specific persons. This data is not merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of specific indications of unlawful use.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
If you send us enquiries and messages via the contact form, the information you provide in the form, including the contact details you enter there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. This data will not be transferred to anyone without your consent.
This means that the data entered in the contact form is processed exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You are entitled to revoke this consent at any time. To do so, simply send us an informal message by email. The legality of the data processing operations conducted until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies. Mandatory statutory provisions in particular, retention periods - shall remain unaffected.
Online Job Applications
In the case of online job applications, the application data is collected and processed electronically by the provider for the purpose of processing the application procedure. This also includes the transfer of the applicant profile to the third party named in the job offer if the provider advertises the job for a partner company.
The legal basis for the processing is Section 26 (1) Sentence 1 BDSG (Federal Data Protection Act) in conjunction with Article 88 (1) GDPR.
The deletion of the transmitted data shall take place automatically two months after notification of the rejection of the job application. This shall not apply if longer storage of up to four months or conclusion of legal proceedings is necessary due to legal requirements (duty of proof according to the General Equal Treatment Act, AGG).
The legal basis for this is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR or § 24 Para. 1 No. 2 BDSG. The provider's legitimate interest is legal defence.
If explicit consent has been granted to store the data in a database of interested parties for a longer period, the data will be processed based on the consent and deleted after 12 months at the latest.
The legal basis in this context is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR. Consent to this can be revoked for the future at any time by notifying the provider in accordance with Art. 7 (3) GDPR.
