The supervisory authority is a natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data


On the one hand, your data will be collected by you communicating it to us, e.g. by entering it in our contact form. Other data is automatically collected by our IT systems when you visit our website. These are mainly technical data:


  • Your Internet browser and browser settings, your IP address, time of access, the operating system you are using, the page you last visited, the amount of data transferred and the access status.

In addition, your data is stored in the log files of our system.  This data is not merged with other data sources.

These data are collected on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1  DSGVO. In order to be able to guarantee an optimisation of the website as well as a technically error-free representation, a collection of the server log files is compellingly necessary. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.

An evaluation for marketing purposes or similar does not take place in this context.


3. Contact form

he data entered in the contact form is stored by us in order to be able to process your enquiry and to be available for follow-up questions. These data will not be passed on without your consent.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 DSGVO). A disclaim of your already given consent is possible at any time. An informal notification by e-mail is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of the data processing operations carried out remains unaffected by the disclaimer.
The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request deletion, disclaimer of your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.



When you visit our website, your surfing behaviour can be statistically evaluated. This is done primarily with cookies and so-called analysis programs. The analysis of your surfing behaviour is usually anonymous. The surfing behaviour cannot be traced back to you. You can object to this analysis or prevent it by not using certain tools.

We will inform you about the possibility of objection in this data protection declaration.



Our website uses cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses.

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer by your browser. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser during your next visit.

With a modern web browser you can monitor, restrict or prevent the use of cookies. Many web browsers can be configured so that cookies are deleted automatically when the program is closed. However, the deactivation of cookies can result in a limited functionality of our website.
The setting of cookies which are necessary for the exercise of electronic communication processes or the provision of certain functions requested by you (e.g. contact form) takes place on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and smooth provision of our services. If other cookies are set (e.g. for analysis functions), these will be dealt with  separately in this data protection declaration.



You have the right to have data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible person, this will only be done as far as it is technically feasible. Data will only be transferred to a third country if you are there yourself or if the execution of contracts requires it.



Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to request information about your stored personal data, their origin, recipients and the purpose of data processing.

Should your data not be correct with us, you have the right to demand a correction of your data.

You have the right to demand that we delete personal data concerning you immediately. We are obliged to delete this data. However, any applicable legal storage regulations must be observed beforehand.    

For all rights mentioned under point 7, you can confidently contact the internal data protection officer.

In the event of violations of data protection law, the person concerned has the right to place a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority for data protection issues is the data protection officer of the federal state in which our company is based.



We store the data as part of the recruitment process for vacant positions to assess your suitability for the position and to complete the application process. This data will not be used for any other purpose.

The legal basis is your consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO, given when sending the online application, which you can revoke at any time. An informal notification by e-mail is sufficient for the revocation.

After completion of the application procedure, or if you withdraw your application, your data transmitted within the scope of the application will be deleted in accordance with the applicable regulations.



This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as an administrator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from http:// to , and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Privacy policy on the services of third parties


Our website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. Provider of the web analytics service is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics also uses cookies, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site (see item 5 of the privacy policy). The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

Google Analytics cookies are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. F DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising.

We have activated the IP anonymization function on our website. This means that your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union, or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, before it is transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA, where it will be shortened. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to enhance your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. In addition, you can prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and Google from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link:

Objection to data collection

For more information on how Google Analytics uses user data, please see Google's privacy policy.

Order data processing
We have concluded a contract with Google for order data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

Demographic characteristics of Google Analytics
Our website uses the "demographic features" function of Google Analytics. This allows us to generate reports that contain information about the age, gender, and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-related advertising by Google, as well as from visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google account, or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as described under "Objection to data collection".



Our website uses the Google Maps map service via an API. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

To use the features of Google Maps, it is necessary to store your IP address. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transfer.  

The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers, and in an easy findability of the places indicated by us on the website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1  DSGVO.

For more information on how we treat user data, please see Google's privacy policy:



Our site uses so-called web fonts, which are provided by Google, for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.

For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to Google's servers. This will enable Google to know that your IP address has been used to access our website. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online services. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font will be used by your computer.
