We take data protection seriously
The protection of your privacy when processing personal data is an important concern for us. When you visit our website, our web servers store the IP of your Internet service provider, the website from which you visit us, the web pages you visit on our site and the date and duration of the visit as standard. This information is absolutely necessary for the technical transmission of the web pages and secure server operation. A personalized evaluation of this data does not take place.
If you send us data via contact form, this data will be stored on our servers in the course of data backup. Your data will only be used by us to process your request. Your data will be treated strictly confidential. It will not be passed on to third parties.

Personal data is data about your person. This includes your name, address and email address. You do not have to disclose any personal data to visit our website. In some cases we need your name and address as well as other information to be able to offer you the requested service.
The same applies in the case that we supply you with information material on request or when we answer your inquiries. In these cases we will always point this out to you. In addition, we only store the data that you have transmitted to us automatically or voluntarily.
When you use one of our services, we usually only collect the data that is necessary to provide you with our service. We may ask you for additional information, but this is voluntary. Whenever we process personal data, we do so in order to provide you with our service or to pursue our commercial objectives.
Automatically stored data
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- – Date and time of the request
- Name of the requested file
- Page from which the file was requested
- access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
- Web browser and operating system used
- complete IP address of the requesting computer
- amount of data transferred
This data is not merged with other data sources. The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.
For reasons of technical security, in particular to defend against attempted attacks on our web server, we store this data for a short period of time. It is not possible for us to draw conclusions about individual persons on the basis of this data. After seven days at the latest, the data is anonymized by shortening the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a link to the individual user. The data is also processed anonymously for statistical purposes; it is not compared with other data or passed on to third parties, even in part. Only in the context of our server statistics, which we publish every two years in our activity report, is a presentation of the number of page views made.
When you visit our website, we may store information on your computer in the form of cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters by which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited Internet pages and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified via the unique cookie ID.
Through the use of session cookies, the responsible party can provide the users of this website with a user-friendly service that would not be possible without the cookie setting. Without consent, we only use technically necessary cookies on the legal basis of legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) f GDPR.
Online job application
Your application data transmitted to us will be collected and processed electronically by us for the purpose of handling the application process. In particular, this involves the following personal data:
- First name
- Last name
- E-mail address
- Telephone number
Documents transmitted via the application form (curriculum vitae, application, etc.)
If your application is followed by the conclusion of an employment contract, your transmitted data may be stored by us in your personnel file for the purpose of the usual organizational and administrative process in compliance with the relevant legal regulations.
If your job application is rejected, the data you have submitted will be deleted automatically two months after notification of the rejection. This does not apply if longer storage is necessary due to legal requirements (for example, the duty of proof under the General Equal Treatment Act) or if you have expressly consented to longer storage in our database of interested parties.
Cookie consent with Borlabs Cookie
Our website uses Borlabs Cookie’s cookie consent technology to obtain your consent to store certain cookies in your browser and to document it in a privacy-compliant manner. The provider of this technology is Borlabs – Benjamin A. Bornschein, Rübenkamp 32, 22305 Hamburg (hereinafter Borlabs).
When you enter our website, a Borlabs cookie is stored in your browser, in which the consents you have given or the revocation of these consents are stored. This data is not shared with the Borlabs cookie provider.
The collected data will be stored until you request us to erase it or until you erase the Borlabs cookie yourself or until the purpose for storing the data no longer applies. Mandatory legal retention periods remain unaffected. Details on the data processing of Borlabs Cookie can be found at https://de.borlabs.io/kb/welche-daten-speichert-borlabs-cookie/.
Web Fonts from Adobe Typekit
This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Adobe Typekit for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly. For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to Adobe Typekit’s servers. This enables Adobe Typekit to know that your IP address has been used to access our website. The use of Adobe Typekit web fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.
We use the provider Vimeo, among others, for the integration of videos. Vimeo is operated by Vimeo, LLC with headquarters at 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011.
On some of our web pages, we use plugins of the provider Vimeo. When you call up the Internet pages of our website that are provided with such a plugin – for example, our media library – a connection is established to the Vimeo servers and the plugin is displayed. This transmits to the Vimeo server which of our Internet pages you have visited. If you are logged in as a member of Vimeo, Vimeo assigns this information to your personal user account. When using the plugin, such as clicking on the start button of a video, this information is also assigned to your user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your Vimeo user account before using our website and deleting the corresponding cookies from Vimeo.
Further information on data processing and notes on data protection by Vimeo can be found at https://vimeo.com/privacy.
We use the open source map service “OpenStreetMaps” (also called “OSM”) of the company OpenStreetMap Foundation, 132 Maney Hill Road, Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, B72 1JU, United Kingdom. OSM is used to provide an interactive map on our website that shows you how to find and reach us. This service enables us to present our website in an appealing way by loading map material from an external server. The following data is transmitted to OSM’s servers during the display: the one of our web pages that you have visited and the IP address of your terminal device. The legal basis for the processing of your data in relation to the “OSM” service is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 letter f) GDPR (legitimate interest in data processing). The legitimate interest results from our need for an appealing presentation of our online offer and the easy findability of the places indicated on our homepage.
WordPress statistics plugin WP Statistics
This website uses the WordPress analysis plugin WP Statistics from the provider https://wp-statistics.com.
This is used to create simple statistics in anonymous form. For this purpose, no user profiles are created and no cookies are set. All data collected by WP Statistics is stored completely anonymized on this web server. An identification of a visitor is therefore not possible, even subsequently. The GeoIP function is not activated, no data is analyzed for this.
For sending the newsletter, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure, i.e. we will only send you a newsletter by e-mail if you have previously expressly confirmed that you want us to activate the newsletter service. We will then send you a notification e-mail and ask you to confirm that you would like to receive our newsletter by clicking on a link contained in this e-mail. When you subscribe to our newsletter, we store your IP address and the date of subscription. This storage serves solely as evidence in case a third party misuses your e-mail address to register you for the newsletter without your knowledge or authorization. If you do not wish to receive any more newsletters from us at a later date, you can object to this at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the prime rates.
We have implemented technical and administrative security measures to protect your personal data against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorized access. All our employees and service providers working for us are bound by the applicable data protection laws.
Whenever we collect and process personal data, it is encrypted before it is transmitted. This means that your data cannot be misused by third parties. Our security measures are subject to a continuous improvement process and our data protection statements are constantly being revised. Please make sure that you have the latest version.

- Right of access by the data subject:
You can request information from us as to whether and to what extent we process your data.
- Right to retification:
If we process your data that is incomplete or incorrect, you can request that we correct or complete it at any time.

You can demand that we erase your data if we process it unlawfully or if the processing disproportionately interferes with your legitimate interests in protection. Please note that there may be reasons that prevent immediate erasure, e.g. in the case of legally regulated retention obligations.
Irrespective of the exercise of your right to erasure, we will immediately and completely erase your data, insofar as there is no legal or statutory obligation to retain data in this respect.
- Right to restriction of processing:
You may request us to restrict the processing of your data if
- you dispute the accuracy of the data, for a period of time that allows us to verify the accuracy of the data.
- the processing of the data is unlawful, but you refuse erasure and instead request restriction of the use of the data,
- we no longer need the data for the intended purpose, but you still need this data to assert or defend legal claims, or
- you have objected to the processing of the data.
- Right to data portability:
You may request that we provide you with the data you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and that you may transfer this data to another controller without hindrance from us, provided that

- this processing is carried out with the aid of automated procedures.
If technically feasible, you may request us to transfer your data directly to another controller.
- Right of objection:
If we process your data for legitimate interest, you can object to this data processing at any time; this would also apply to profiling based on these provisions. We will then no longer process your data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims. You may object to the processing of your data for the purpose of direct marketing at any time without giving reasons.
- Right of appeal:
If you are of the opinion that we are violating German or European data protection law in the processing of your data, please contact us so that we can clarify any questions.
