With this privacy policy, we would like to inform you about the scope of the processing of your personal data (hereinafter referred to as "Data").


A. Data processing

We process Data as part of the operation of our website. Processing of Data also includes disclosure through transmission

The European Commission has passed an adequacy resolution for Data transfers to the USA, called the "Privacy Shield".  Through this, the Commission has certified that the guarantees for the transmission of Data to the USA based on the EU-US Privacy Shield comply with EU data protection standards. As far as we transfer Data to the USA, we have identified our service providers' participation in the EU-US Privacy Shield.

The specific Data concerned, reasons for processing, legal bases, recipients and transfers to third countries are listed below:

a)    Log file

We log your visit to our website. The following Data is processed: name of the retrieved web page, date and time of the retrieval, the amount of Data transferred, the browser type and version, the operating system you are using, the referrer URL (the previously visited web page), your IP address and the requesting provider. This is necessary to ensure the security of the website. We process the Data accordingly on the basis of our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR. The log file will be deleted after seven days, unless it is needed to clarify or to prove concrete infringements that have become known within the retention period.

 b)    Hosting

In the context of hosting, all Data to be processed in connection with the operation of this website will be stored. This is necessary to enable the operation of the website. We process the Data accordingly on the basis of our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR. To provide our online presence, we use the services of web hosting providers, to whom we provide the above Data.

c)    Contact

If you contact us, your Data (name, contact details, if provided by you) and your message will be processed solely for the purpose of processing and fulfilling your request. We collect this Data on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 b) GDPR or Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR to process your request.

d)    Newsletter

To be able to provide you with up-to-date content, information about our company and our offers on a regular basis, we offer to send a newsletter. When you sign up for the newsletter, we process the Data you enter (e-mail address and other voluntary information). The registration confirmation e-mail is sent on the basis of our legitimate interest to prove your proper subscription according to Art. 6 para.1 f) GDPR; the sending of the newsletter due to your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 a) GDPR.
Registration for the newsletter takes place using the so-called double-opt-in procedure. To prevent abuse, upon subscribing, you will receive an e-mail requesting confirmation of the subscription. A record of subscriptions to the newsletter is kept to fulfil the legal requirements for recording the subscription process. The record contains the time of subscription and confirmation as well as the relevant IP address. To send the newsletter, we use service providers to whom we provide the above Data.

e)    Registration

By registering on our website, you consent to the storage of your personal Data (name, address, e-mail address, bank details) as well as your usage Data (username, password). This allows us to identify you as a customer and gives you the ability to manage your orders. Your Data will be processed on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 a) GDPR.

f)    Job database

When you publish your ad in our job database, we process the following Data: title, company, job location, content of your ad, selected basic settings (additional options, type of delivery, start date, variant of online application), salutation, name, telephone, e-mail, address and, if specified by you: fax, company, department and billing address.
Data processing takes place for the implementation of pre-contractual measures according to Art. 6 para. 1 b) GDPR

g)    Whitepaper

When you download a whitepaper from us, we process your name and e-mail address. With your consent, we also pass this data on to such customers whose services you have retrieved from one of our online portals (e.g. the whitepaper of a specific manufacturer). When you retrieve the service, we will point out which company it is and with the download you can decide whether you agree to the use of your data by this company and want to download this third-party offer. These companies are themselves responsible parties in the sense of data protection law. The transfer takes place for the purpose of marketing the offers of our partner. The legal basis is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1a) GDPR. You can find information on revoking your consent to data transfer in section C. item e) of this privacy policy.

h)    Contracting us with applications

If you contact us to send us your application as an employee, e.g. by e-mail or via a contact form, the data you provide (e.g. name, e-mail address, desired location, etc.), your message and the application documents submitted will be processed exclusively for the purpose of processing and handling your application request.
The legal basis for data processing is primarily § 26 BDSG. According to this, the processing of data that is required in connection with the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship is permissible.
Should the data be necessary for legal prosecution after completion of the application process, data processing may be carried out to safeguard our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 1f) GDPR, namely for the assertion and/or defense of claims.

i)    reCAPTCHA

To protect input forms on our websites from spam and abuse, we use an external service "reCAPTCHA".  This service is provided by Google LLC, Mountain View, California, USA (hereinafter Google).  reCAPTCHA makes it possible to distinguish between inputs created by humans and inputs that are created by misuse of automated software (also called bots).
In using this service, the following data is transmitted to the servers of Google in the USA:

  • Referrer URL
  • IP address of user
  • Input behaviour of user as well as mouse movements in or around the “reCAPTCHA” checkboxes

  • Information on the browser used, browser size, browser resolution, browser plugins, language settings, date
  • Mouse and touch events on the site

j)    Website analysis and marketing

To enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your device and exchanged with other providers. Some of the cookies we use are immediately deleted after you close your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your computer and enable the website to recognise your browser on your next visit (persistent cookies).
You can delete all cookies stored on your device and set most browsers to prevent the storage of cookies.
In that case, you may need to re-adjust some preferences every time you visit a website and some services and functionalities may not work.

We use cookies in connection with the following functionalities:

Matomo (self-hosted)

We use cookies from the open source web analysis software Matomo (formerly Piwik) on our website. When you visit our website, cookies store information about your use of the website (including the IP address). We use this stored information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity for ourselves, and for the provision of other services related to Internet use and use of the website. We process the Data received in this manner on the basis of our legitimate interest in the optimal marketing of our online offer according to Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR. Please note that this website uses Matomo with the extension "anonymizeIp()". This truncates IP addresses before transmission. A direct personal reference in connection with the stored Data is thus usually excluded. If necessary, we will transfer the stored information to third parties, if required by law.

k)    Integration of external content

The dynamic content is then transmitted to our website and displayed there.
We use external content in connection with the following functionalities:

In order to increase the protection of your Data when visiting our website, the redirects are static links inserted via the so-called "Shariff" project.
