“Pseudonymisation’ means the processing of personal data in such a manner that the per-sonal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

We also take into account the protection of personal data during the development or selection of hardware, software and procedures in keeping with the data protection by technology design and with data protection-friendly settings (Art. 25 GDPR).

 

Cooperation with processors and third parties
In cases where we make disclosures to other persons and companies (processors or third parties) within the scope of our processing of data, transfer data to them, or grant them ac-cess to data otherwise, this is only carried out on the basis of statutory permission (e.g. should a transferring of data to third parties such as payment service providers be necessary in order to fulfil a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter b GDPR), you have consented to this, this is the subject of a legal obligation or this is based on our legitimate interests (e.g. when availing ourselves of representatives, web hosts, etc.).

Should we have data processed in third countries (i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)) or disclose data so that we can avail ourselves of third party services or should we transfer data to third parties, we only do so should this be neces-sary in order for us to fulfil our (pre-)contractual obligations, you have consented to this, this is the subject of a legal obligation or this is based on our legitimate interests. Subject to statutory or contractual consents, we only process or have the data processed in a third country should the special requirements stated in Art. 44 et seq. GDPR exist, i.e. the pro-cessing takes place on the basis of special guarantees such as the officially recognised de-termination of a data protection level that corresponds to that in the EU (e.g. the “Privacy Shield” in the USA) or when observing officially recognised special contractual obligations (referred to as “standard contract terms”).

Cookies and a right to object to direct advertising
“Cookies“ are small files that are stored on computers. The cookies can have diverse data stored in them. A cookie primarily has the task of storing the data of the user (or the device that the cookie is stored on) during or after a visit has been paid to an online offer. Tempo-rary cookies or “session cookies” or “transient cookies“ are cookies that are deleted after a user has left an online offer and has closed the browser. Such a cookie can store the con-tents of a shopping cart in an online shop or a login status for example. Cookies are deemed to be “permanent“ or “persistent“ if they remain stored after the browser has been closed. This enables the login status to be stored however should the user return to the offer after a number of days. The interests of the user can also be stored in such a cookie, it then being possible to use these for a range determination or for marketing purposes. “Third-Party cook-ies“ are cookies that are offered by providers other than the controller that operates the online offer (reference is otherwise only made to “First-Party cookies“ if they are cookies that only belong to him).
We can use both temporary and permanent cookies and provide information on this in our Privacy policy.
Should the user not wish to have cookies stored on his computer, he is requested to deacti-vate the corresponding option in the system settings of his browser. Stored cookies can be deleted in the system settings of the browser. An exclusion of cookies can result in re-strictions to the functions provided by this online offer.
A general objection to the use of cookies for online marketing purposes can be declared with a large number of services especially with regard to tracking, examples being the US Ameri-can site http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU site http://www.youronlinechoices.com/. The non-storage of cookies can also be achieved by deactivating them in the browser settings. Please note that this could result in it not being possible to use all of the functions pro-vided by this online offer.

 

Data erasure
The data we process can be erased or subjected to restricted processing pursuant to Art. 17 and 18 GDPR. Should nothing to the contrary be explicitly stated in this Privacy Policy, the data that we store shall be erased as soon as they are no longer required for the intended purpose and the erasure is not contradicted by a statutory storage obligation. Should the data not be erased because they are required for other purposes that are legally permissible, their processing shall be restricted, i.e. the data are blocked and shall not be processed for another purpose. This has validity for data that are subject to a compulsory storage on com-mercial or fiscal law grounds for example.
With regard to the legal provisions that have validity in Germany, the storage is especially to be for a duration of 10 years pursuant to Section 147 para. 1 of the German fiscal code (AO), Section 257 para. 1 No. 1 and No. 4, para. 4 of the German commercial code (HGB) (ac-counts, written records, situation reports, accounting records, documents that are relevant for taxation, etc.) and 6 years pursuant to Section 257 para. 1 No. 2 and No. 3, para. 4 HGB (commercial letters).

Data protection information for application process
Applicants can send us their applications by email but please note that emails are not sent in an encrypted form and that the applicant is responsible for the encryption.

Should special catego-ries of personal data be requested in the scope of the application process, these are pro-cessed pursuant to Art. 9 para. 2 letter a GDPR (e.g. health data should this be necessary in connection with the work that is to be carried out).
