"Cookies" are small files that are stored on the users' computers. Various information can be stored within the cookies. A cookie is primarily used to store information about a user (or the device on which the cookie is stored) during or after their visit to an online offer. Temporary cookies, or "session cookies" or "transient cookies", are cookies that are deleted after a user leaves an online offer and closes his browser. The contents of a shopping cart in an online shop or a login status can be stored in such a cookie. Cookies are referred to as "permanent" or "persistent" and remain stored even after the browser is closed. For example, the login status can be saved if users visit it after several days. The interests of users can also be stored in such a cookie, which are used for range measurement or marketing purposes. "Third-party cookies" are cookies that are offered by providers other than the person responsible for operating the online offer (otherwise, if they are only their cookies, they are referred to as "first-party cookies").
We can use temporary and permanent cookies and clarify this as part of our data protection declaration.
If users do not want cookies to be stored on their computer, they are asked to deactivate the corresponding option in the system settings of their browser. Saved cookies can be deleted in the system settings of the browser. The exclusion of cookies can lead to functional restrictions of this online offer.
Deletion of data
The data processed by us will be deleted or restricted in their processing in accordance with the legal requirements. Unless expressly stated in this data protection declaration, the data stored by us will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for their intended purpose and the deletion does not conflict with any statutory retention requirements.
If the data are not deleted because they are required for other legally permissible purposes, their processing will be restricted. In other words, the data is blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be kept for commercial or tax reasons.
We ask you to inform yourself regularly about the content of our data protection declaration. We will adapt the data protection declaration as soon as the changes to the data processing carried out by us make this necessary.

Disclosure to external persons or companies only takes place if it is required in the context of a contract. When processing the data provided to us as part of an order, we act in accordance with the instructions of the client and the legal requirements.
When using our online services, we can save the IP address and the time of the respective user action. The storage takes place on the basis of our legitimate interests, as well as the interests of the users in protection against misuse and other unauthorized use. A transfer of this data to third parties does not take place, unless it is to pursue our claims acc. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR required or there is a legal obligation to do so in accordance with. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c. GDPR.
The data will be deleted when the data is no longer required to fulfill contractual or statutory duties of care and to deal with any warranty or comparable obligations, whereby the need to store the data is checked every three years; Otherwise, the statutory retention requirements apply.
Administration, financial accounting, office organization, contact management
We process data in the context of administrative tasks as well as the organization of our operations, financial accounting and compliance with legal obligations, such as archiving. In doing so, we process the same data that we process in the context of providing our contractual services. The processing bases are Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c. GDPR, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. GDPR. Customers, interested parties, business partners and website visitors are affected by the processing. The purpose and our interest in processing lies in administration, financial accounting, office organization, archiving of data, i.e. tasks that serve to maintain our business activities, perform our tasks and provide our services. The deletion of the data with regard to contractual services and contractual communication corresponds to the information given for these processing activities.
We disclose or transmit data to the financial administration, consultants, such as tax consultants or auditors, as well as other fee offices and payment service providers.

Data protection information in the application process
We process the applicant data only for the purpose and within the scope of the application process in accordance with the legal requirements. The processing of the applicant data takes place in order to fulfill our (pre) contractual obligations within the scope of the application process within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b. GDPR Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f. DSGVO if the data processing is necessary for us, e.g. in the context of legal proceedings (in Germany § 26 BDSG also applies)
The application process requires that applicants provide us with the applicant data. If we offer an online form, the necessary applicant data is marked, otherwise it results from the job description and generally includes personal details, postal and contact addresses and the documents belonging to the application, such as cover letter, curriculum vitae and certificates. In addition, applicants can voluntarily provide us with additional information.
By submitting the application to us, the applicants consent to the processing of their data for the purposes of the application process in accordance with the type and scope set out in this data protection declaration.
Insofar as special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 Paragraph 1 GDPR are voluntarily communicated as part of the application process, they are also processed in accordance with Art. 9 Paragraph 2 lit. b GDPR (e.g. health data, such as severely disabled status or ethnic origin). Insofar as special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 Para. 1 GDPR are requested from applicants during the application process, they are also processed in accordance with Art. 9 Para. 2 lit. a GDPR (e.g. health data, if these are necessary for the exercise of the profession).
If available, applicants can submit their applications to us using an online form on our website. The data is encrypted and transmitted to us in accordance with the state of the art. Applicants can also send us their applications via email. Please note, however, that e-mails are generally not sent in encrypted form and that the applicants themselves have to ensure the encryption. We therefore cannot accept any responsibility for the transmission path of the application between the sender and receipt on our server and therefore recommend using an online form or sending it by post. Because instead of applying via the online form and email, applicants still have the option of sending us the application by post.
The data provided by the applicants can be further processed by us in the event of a successful application for the purposes of the employment relationship. Otherwise, if the application for a job offer is unsuccessful, the applicant's data will be deleted. The applicant's data will also be deleted if an application is withdrawn, which applicants are entitled to do at any time.
The deletion takes place, subject to a justified revocation of the applicants, after the expiry of a period of six months, so that we can answer any follow-up questions about the application and meet our obligations to provide evidence under the Equal Treatment Act. Invoices for any reimbursement of travel expenses are archived in accordance with tax law requirements.
Retrieval of profile pictures at Gravatar
We use the Gravatar service from Automattic Inc., 60 29th Street # 343, San Francisco, CA 94110, USA, within our online offer and in particular in the blog.
Gravatar is a service to which users can register and store profile pictures and their e-mail addresses. If users leave posts or comments with the respective e-mail address on other online presences (especially in blogs), their profile pictures can be displayed next to the posts or comments. For this purpose, the email address provided by the users is transmitted in encrypted form to Gravatar in order to check whether a profile has been saved for them. This is the sole purpose of the transmission of the e-mail address and it is not used for other purposes, but deleted afterwards.
Gravatar is used on the basis of our legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR, because with the help of Gravatar we offer the post and comment writers the opportunity to personalize their posts with a profile picture.
By displaying the images, Gravatar learns the IP address of the user, as this is necessary for communication between a browser and an online service. Further information on the collection and use of data by Gravatar can be found in Automattic's data protection information: https://automattic.com/privacy/.
If users do not want a user picture linked to their Gravatar email address to appear in the comments, they should use an email address that is not stored with Gravatar to comment. We also point out that it is also possible to use an anonymous e-mail address or no e-mail address at all, if the users do not want their own e-mail address to be sent to Gravatar. Users can completely prevent the transmission of data by not using our comment system.
When contacting us (e.g. via the contact form, email, telephone or via social media), the information provided by the user is used to process the contact request and to process it in accordance with. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. (within the framework of contractual / pre-contractual relationships), Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. (other inquiries) DSGVO processed. The user information can be stored in a customer relationship management system (“CRM system”) or a comparable inquiry organization.

Jetpack (WordPress Stats)
On the basis of our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. GDPR), we use the Jetpack plug-in (here the sub-function "Wordpress Stats"), which is a Tool for statistical analysis of visitor access and from Automattic Inc., 60 29th Street # 343, San Francisco, CA 94110, USA. Jetpack uses so-called "cookies", text files that are stored on your computer and that enable your use of the website to be analyzed.
The information generated by the cookie about your use of this online offer is stored on a server in the USA. User profiles can be created from the processed data, whereby these are only used for analysis and not for advertising purposes. Further information can be found in Automattic's data protection declarations: https://automattic.com/privacy/ and information on Jetpack cookies: https://jetpack.com/support/cookies/.
We use the services of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f , USA, ("Google").
Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).
We use the online marketing process Google “Doubleclick” to place advertisements in the Google advertising network (e.g. in search results, in videos, on websites, etc.). Double Click is characterized by the fact that advertisements are displayed in real time based on the presumed interests of the users. This allows us to display advertisements for and within our online offer in a more targeted manner in order to only present users with advertisements that potentially correspond to their interests. If, for example, a user is shown advertisements for products that he was interested in on other online offers, this is referred to as "remarketing". For these purposes, when our and other websites on which the Google advertising network is active, a Google code is immediately executed by Google and so-called (re) marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also called " Web Beacons ”) integrated into the website. With their help, an individual cookie, ie a small file, is saved on the user's device (comparable technologies can also be used instead of cookies). This file records which websites the user has visited, which content he is interested in and which offers the user has clicked, as well as technical information on the browser and operating system, referring websites, visiting time and other information on the use of the online offer.
The IP address of the user is also recorded, although it is shortened within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area and only transferred in full to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. The aforementioned information can also be combined by Google with information from other sources. If the user then visits other websites, they can be shown advertisements tailored to them according to their presumed interests based on their user profile.
The data of the users are processed pseudonymously within the framework of the Google advertising network. This means that Google does not store and process the name or email address of the user, for example, but processes the relevant data on a cookie-related basis within pseudonymous user profiles. In other words, from Google's point of view, the ads are not managed and displayed for a specifically identified person, but for the cookie holder, regardless of who this cookie holder is. This does not apply if a user has expressly allowed Google to process the data without this pseudonymisation. The information collected by Google Marketing Services about users is transmitted to Google and stored on Google's servers in the USA.
You can find more information on the use of data by Google, setting and objection options in Google's data protection declaration (https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads) and in the settings for the display of advertisements by Google (https: // adssettings.google.com/authenticated).
Online presence in social media
We maintain an online presence within social networks and platforms in order to be able to communicate with the customers, interested parties and users active there and to inform them about our services.
We would like to point out that user data can be processed outside of the European Union. This can result in risks for the user because it could make it more difficult to enforce the users' rights, for example. With regard to US providers who are certified under the Privacy Shield, we would like to point out that they undertake to comply with the EU data protection standards.
Furthermore, user data is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, user profiles can be created from user behavior and the interests of the user resulting from this. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the user's computer, in which the usage behavior and the interests of the user are stored. Furthermore, data can be stored in the usage profiles regardless of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them).
The processing of the personal data of the users takes place on the basis of our legitimate interests in an effective information of the users and communication with the users acc. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR. If the users are asked by the respective providers of the platforms for consent to the data processing described above, the legal basis for processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a., Art. 7 GDPR.
For a detailed description of the respective processing and the possibility of objection (opt-out), we refer to the information provided by the providers linked below.
Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be most effectively asserted with the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can take appropriate measures and provide information. If you still need help, you can contact us.

Integration of services and content from third parties
We use content or service offers from third-party providers within our online offer on the basis of our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. Integrate services such as videos or fonts (hereinafter uniformly referred to as "content").
This always presupposes that the third-party providers of this content perceive the IP address of the users, since they would not be able to send the content to their browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required to display this content. We strive to only use content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content. Third-party providers can also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. The “pixel tags” can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information can also be stored in cookies on the user's device and contain, among other things, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, visiting time and other information about the use of our online offer, as well as being linked to such information from other sources.
We embed the videos from the “YouTube” platform provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Data protection declaration: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/, Opt-Out: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated.
Use of Facebook social plugins
On the basis of our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. GDPR), we use social plugins (“plugins”) from the social network facebook.com, which operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”). This may include, for example, content such as images, videos or texts and buttons with which users can share content from this online offer within Facebook. The list and the appearance of the Facebook social plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active).
When a user calls up a function of this online offer that contains such a plugin, his device establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted from Facebook directly to the user's device, which integrates it into the online offer. In doing so, user profiles can be created from the processed data. We therefore have no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs users according to our level of knowledge.
By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has accessed the corresponding page of the online offer. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to their Facebook account. When users interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the Like button or making a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your device to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out his IP address and save it. According to Facebook, only an anonymized IP address is saved in Germany.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as the related rights and setting options to protect the privacy of users can be found in Facebook's data protection information: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/ .
If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him through this online offer and link it to his member data stored on Facebook, he must log out of Facebook before using our online offer and delete his cookies. Further settings and contradictions to the use of data for advertising purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads or via the US website http://www.aboutads.info / choices / or the EU page http://www.youronlinechoices.com/. The settings are platform-independent, ie they are adopted for all devices such as desktop computers or mobile devices.
Functions and contents of the Twitter service, offered by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA, can be integrated into our online offer.
