Data protection has a high priority for the operators of this website. The use of this website is possible without any indication of personal data.
However, if a data subject wants to use special services via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If processing of personal data is necessary and if there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain the consent of the data subject. The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the operator of this website.
By means of this data protection declaration, the operator of this website would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of their rights by means of this data protection declaration. As the controller, the operator of this website has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can always be subject to security vulnerabilities, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone or by post.
We use the following terms, among others, in this data protection declaration:
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter "data subject"). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.
Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organization, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.
Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data that consists of using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyze or predict aspects relating to that natural person's job performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or change of location.
Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separate and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
Controller or person responsible for the processing
The controller or person responsible for processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its designation may be provided for under Union or Member State law.
Processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
Recipient means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not a third party. However, public authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation mandate under Union or Member State law are not considered recipients.
Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorized to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.
Consent is any expression of will given voluntarily by the data subject for the specific case in an informed manner and unambiguously in the form of a statement or other unambiguous affirmative act by which the data subject indicates that he or she consents to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
Name and address of the controller
The controller within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation, other data protection laws applicable in the Member States of the European Union and other provisions of a data protection nature is:
An der Goldgrube 7
Rights of the data subject
Right to confirmation: Every data subject has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to obtain confirmation from the controller as to whether personal data concerning him or her are being processed. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of confirmation, he or she may, at any time, contact the Data Protection Officer, the controller himself or herself, or an employee of the controller.
Right of access: Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to obtain at any time from the controller, free of charge, information about the personal data stored about him or her and a copy of that information. In addition, the European Directive and Regulation Legislator has granted the data subject access to the following information:
- the purposes of processing
- the categories of personal data processed
- the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular in the case of recipients in third countries or international organizations
- if possible, the planned duration for which the personal data will be stored or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining this duration

- the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority
- if the personal data are not collected from the data subject: Any available information about the origin of the data
- The existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, pursuant to Article 22(1) and (4) of the GDPR and, at least in these cases, meaningful information about the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for the data subject.
Furthermore, when exercising the right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the data subject shall have the right to obtain that the personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, where technically feasible and provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other individuals.
In order to assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time, if necessary, contact the Data Protection Officer, the controller himself or an employee of the controller.
- Right to object: any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to object at any time, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to processing of personal data concerning him or her carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the DSGVO. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The operator of this website shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If the operator of this website processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data processed for such marketing. This also applies to the profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to the operator of this website to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the operator of this website will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her which is carried out by the operator of this website for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the Data Protection Regulation, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.
In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may directly contact the data protection officer, the controller itself or an employee of the controller, if necessary.
The data subject is also free, in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to exercise his or her right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
- Automated decisions on a case-by-case basis, including profiling: every data subject concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly significantly affects him or her, where the decision
- is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or
- is permitted by Union or Member State legislation to which the controller is subject, and that legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject; or
- is carried out with the express consent of the data subject.
If the decision is
- is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the data controller, or
- If the decision is made with the explicit consent of the data subject, the operator of this website shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject, which include at least the right to obtain the intervention of a data subject on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated decisions, he or she may, at any time, directly contact the Data Protection Officer, the controller himself or herself, or an employee of the controller, if necessary.
- Right to withdraw consent under data protection law: Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation-maker, to withdraw consent to the processing of personal data at any time.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw consent, he or she may, at any time, contact the data protection officer, the controller himself or herself or an employee of the controller directly, if necessary.
Legal or contractual requirements for the provision of personal data.
Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of not providing it.
We inform you that the provision of personal data is sometimes required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes, in order to conclude a contract, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by the operator of this website. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide the operator of this website with personal data if the operator of this website concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before providing personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact the person responsible or, if applicable, the data protection officer of the operator of this website. The person responsible or, if applicable, the data protection officer will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences of not providing the personal data would be.
Routine erasure and blocking of personal data.
The controller processes and stores personal data of the data subject only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose of the storage or where provided for by the European Directive and Regulation or other legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.
If the storage purpose ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation Maker or another competent legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
Duration for which the personal data is stored.
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the performance of the contract or the initiation of the contract.
Legitimate interests in processing pursued by the controller or a third party.
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DSGVO, the legitimate interest consists of the performance of business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all employees and, if applicable, our shareholders of the operator of this website.
Legal basis of processing
Article 6 I lit. a DSGVO serves the operator of this website as the legal basis for processing operations for which consent must be obtained for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for a delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DSGVO. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about products or services of the operator of this website. If the operator of this website is subject to a legal obligation by which a processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DSGVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on the premises of the operator of this website and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DSGVO. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DSGVO. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of the operator of this website or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47, sentence 2 of the GDPR).
Collection of general data and information and server log files
This website collects a series of general data and information with each call of this website by a data subject or an automated system.
This general data and information is stored in the server log files.
Collected can be:
the browser types and versions used,
the operating system used by the accessing system,
the website from which an accessing system arrives at this website (so-called referrer),
the subpages which are accessed via an accessing system on this website,
the date and time of an access to the website,
an Internet protocol address (IP address),
the Internet service provider of the accessing system,
other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, the operator of this website does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. This information is rather required in order to
to deliver the contents of this website correctly,
to optimize the contents of this website as well as the advertising for this website,
to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of this website,
to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack.
Therefore, the operator of this website analyzes this anonymously collected data and information on one hand, statistically and on the other hand, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of the enterprise, and ultimately ensuring an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by the operator of this website.
The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject - these data are not merged with other data sources.
Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, the operator of this website does not use automated decision-making or profiling.
Data protection during applications and the application process
The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application procedure. The processing may also take place electronically. This is the case in particular if an applicant

If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of a website may be fully usable.
Contact possibility via this website
Due to legal requirements, this website contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to this enterprise, as well as direct communication, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or by using a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be stored automatically. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the controller will be stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject.
No disclosure of this personal data to third parties will take place.
On this website, the analysis software Google Analytics by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, is used to obtain anonymized usage statistics.
The aforementioned software system collects anonymized user data such as geographical origin (IP address of the Internet provider), pages accessed, browser type and time of access. The collected information is used for the optimization of the website. Due to the anonymization, the systems do not allow any direct conclusions to be drawn about the user's IP address.
Google uses so-called "cookies", text files, which are stored on your computer. This enables the usage analysis of this website by you. The cookie generates information about your use of this website and transmits this information (including your IP address) to a Google server in the USA and stores it. The use of the "anonymizeIP" function for your IP address guarantees within the European Union or member states of the European Economic Area the shortening of the IP address by the last octet, whereby a clear assignment of the IP address is thus no longer possible. The information is used by Google to evaluate your use of the websites. Reports on website activities are created for the website operator and other services associated with website use and internet use are made possible.
Access to the collected data is granted to the operator of this website and external service providers, who are contractually obliged to use the data received exclusively in accordance with the operator's instructions and to delete it after completion of the work. Furthermore, Google will only transfer the information to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google.
Ads may be placed on websites on the Internet by third-party providers and Google. Google and third-party providers will use the data to serve ads on third-party websites.
You can object to the collection and storage of data at any time with effect for the future by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

This website uses the map service Google Maps via an API (Application Programming Interface). The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
To use the functions 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 transmission.
The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers and an easy location of the places indicated by us on the website. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
This site uses so-called web fonts 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.
The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
For this purpose, the browser you use must connect to Google's servers. This enables Google to know that our website has been accessed via your IP address. Google Web Fonts are used in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font is used by your computer.
The controller has integrated components of the LinkedIn Corporation on this website. LinkedIn is an Internet-based social network that enables users to connect with existing business contacts and to make new business contacts. Over 400 million registered individuals use LinkedIn in more than 200 countries. This makes LinkedIn currently the largest platform for business contacts and one of the most visited websites in the world.
With each individual retrieval of this website, which is equipped with a LinkedIn component (LinkedIn plug-in), this component causes the browser used by the data subject to download a corresponding representation of the component from LinkedIn. Further information on LinkedIn plug-ins can be found at https://developer.linkedin.com/plugins. As part of this technical procedure, LinkedIn receives knowledge of which specific sub-page of this website is visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged in to LinkedIn at the same time, LinkedIn recognizes which specific sub-page of this website the data subject is visiting with each call-up of this website by the data subject and for the entire duration of the respective stay on this website. This information is collected by the LinkedIn component and assigned by LinkedIn to the respective LinkedIn account of the data subject. If the data subject activates a LinkedIn button integrated on this website, LinkedIn assigns this information to the personal LinkedIn user account of the data subject and stores this personal data.
