How do we use cookies?

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in the Internet browser or by the Internet browser on the user’s computer system.
On our website we only use so-called necessary-cookies (as opposed to so called analysis-cookies or tracking-cookies). Necessary-cookies are absolutely necessary for the functions of the website and without these cookies certain services cannot be offered on the website.

Necessary-cookies guarantee functions without which you cannot use our web pages as intended. The use of necessary-cookies on our website is possible without your consent.

Cookies, which are not strictly necessary (analysis-cookies) would be used only upon your expressed consent and may be revoked at any time.

Opt-Out:

You can withdraw your consent to the use of consent-based cookies individually at any time with effect for the future. Furthermore, you can opt out from the processing of your personal data via cookies. You can set your web browser in such a way that cookies are generally prevented from being saved to your device and/or that you are asked each time whether you are in agreement with cookies being enabled. You can also at any time delete cookies that have been enabled again. You can find out how all this works in detail from your browser’s help function.

Please note that generally deactivating cookies may lead to functional restrictions of our website.

USE OF YOUTUBE

Our website uses YouTube plugins. YouTube is an internet video site that allows video publishers to upload video clips free of charge and allows other users to view, rate and comment video clips free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why users can access full-length movies and TV shows as well as music videos, film trailers or videos created by users.

The provider of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is an affiliate of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Whenever you visit one of the subpages of our website that includes a YouTube video, the YouTube plugin automatically causes your browser to download a video stream from YouTube. For more information on YouTube, refer to https://policies.google.com/privacy. When you watch a YouTube video on our website, YouTube and Google will receive the information which subpage of our website you have visited.

If you are logged on to your YouTube account at the same time that you visit a subpage containing a YouTube video, YouTube will receive the information which subpage of our website you have visited, and associate this information with your YouTube account. This information is collected by YouTube and Google.

The YouTube plugin informs YouTube and Google about your visit to our website whenever you are logged on to your YouTube account at the same time. This happens independently of whether you click on a YouTube video on our website. If you do not want YouTube and Google to associate browsing information with your YouTube account, you have to log out from your YouTube account before visiting our website.

For information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google, please refer to the publicly available privacy policy at https://policies.google.com/privacy.

Why and on what grounds do we process your data?

There are several different reasons for us to process your personal data, e.g.:

 

  • We process your personal data when you explicitly agree. The data is only processed to the extent of your agreement, and only for the purposes that you have agreed to.
  • We have to process your personal data to fulfill our contractual and non-contractual obligations to you. The data is processed on your request as required to fulfill our contract or to complete any activities prior to contract conclusion.
  • As far as necessary, we process your personal data beyond the extent required by our contractual and non-contractual obligations in order to protect our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of third parties. This includes, for example, statistical evaluation inside our company, or usage of data for organizing events.
  • The purpose of such processing is, for example, the creation of statistics on the application process. The compilation of these statistics is exclusively for our own purposes and is in no case personalized, but in anonymized form. We will process personal data related to any application for employment in accordance with this Privacy Notice, unless such processing conflicts with the requirements of applicable law, in which case, applicable law will prevail.

Who gets access to your data (disclosure of your data)?

Within our company, your data is made accessible to the departments that need it to fulfill our legal and contractual obligations.

Additionally, external service providers instructed by us (external processors) and vicarious agents get access to the data when they deliver services to our company (e.g. IT-services).

We may disclose personal data, we collect, to our subsidiaries and affiliates.

We may also disclose personal data to respond to requests from public and government authorities, including public and government authorities outside your country of residence as well as to comply with any court order, law, or legal process.  

We do not sell or otherwise market your data.

How long is your data stored?

We process and store your personal data as long as the purpose for collecting the data has not been completed. Any data not required anymore is deleted at regular intervals unless we need to continue processing it to fulfill legal requirements. We need to comply with compulsory record-keeping periods based in commercial and fiscal law, and we need to comply with the regulations for the conservation of legal evidence.

If we learn that any personal data from a child under 18 has been collected, we will delete the data as soon as possible.
