We collect the following data: IP address, date and time of the request, access status/HTTP status code, amount of data transmitted, browser, operating system and its interface, language and version of the browser software, webpage from which the request is made, content of the request, and time zone difference to GMT. This will be undertaken to the extent that is technically necessary to allow access to our website and to provide the services you use on our website, but also to analyze, adapt and improve our services, content and advertisements, and to ensure stability and safety. The legal basis derives from Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DS-GMO. The data is stored for a period of 6 months and then automatically deleted.

(2) Furthermore, cookies are stored on your computer when using the website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard disk and assigned to the browser you are using, and that provide certain information to those that set the cookie (in this case us). A cookie typically includes the name of the domain from which the cookie originates, the "lifetime" of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number. Cookies cannot run programs or transmit viruses to your computer. Their purpose is to make our website more user-friendly and effective overall. Some elements of our website require that the calling browser be identified even after a page break.

(3) The following cookies are used on our website:

  • Transient cookies (session cookies)

Session cookies are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of the user's browser until the user leaves the website, meaning that they are automatically deleted after the end of the browser session, such as after closing your browser. You thereby save a session ID that allows different requests from your browser to be assigned to the session and, above all, this is necessary to enable the use of the website.

  • Persistent cookies in connection with Google Analytics, as described below.

Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period, which may vary depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time.

§ 4 Collection of personal data for personalized use; especially for contact forms and applications

(1) In addition to the purely informational use of our website, we offer various services that you can use should you be interested. To do this, you will need to provide personal information that we use in order to provide the service. If additional voluntary information is necessary, it will be marked accordingly. We collect, process and use only the personal data that is necessary for your use of the website, the answering of a request and/or the fulfilment of a contract concluded with us or that you yourself specify. In particular, the following inventory data and usage data may be transmitted via forms on our website: first and last name (consisting of salutation, title, first name, surname), name of the company/institution, address and e-mail address.

(2) If you contact us by e-mail or through a contact form, we will store the information you have provided in order to answer your questions and in the case of follow-up questions.

Your requests will be kept for a period of one year after answering. Regarding business letters pertaining to trade or tax law, we keep the correspondence for the statutory periods (six years in the past).

(3) You can send us your application for the job advertisements on the "Careers" page. If you send us your application by e-mail, please be aware that e-mails are sent unencrypted to us. It cannot be ruled out with complete certainty that unauthorized third parties will take note of the data. If you do not want to take this risk, you should send us your application by post to the address indicated in the job advertisement. We process your personal data that you provide to us during the entire application process (for example: cover letters, CV, certificates, applicant questionnaires, or applicant interviews). The data processing takes place in accordance with §26 exp. 1 S. 1 BDSG for the execution of the application procedure (i.e. regarding the decision on the justification of an employment relationship). Unless you have consented to the storage of the data beyond the end of the specific application process, we will delete your data six months after completing the application process. The application procedure is completed when the period expires, during which complaints made for violation of the AGG are to be expected (usually five months after sending the rejection, if by that time no claim or assertion under § 15 Abs. 4 AGG has been received).

§ 5 Transfer of personal data to third parties

(1) We sometimes use external service providers or other services, namely hosting providers, statistics and analysis services as well as IT maintenance and development service providers.

(2) As a matter of course, we also comply with all data protection regulations and also obligate our service providers to do so, as far as necessary.

(3) In addition, we do not disclose your personal data, unless in exceptional cases when an authority might request the data e.g. for law enforcement or security.

(4) The aforementioned processing operations may also result in data being transmitted to data recipients outside the European Union (see Google Analytics). The data transfer takes place in this respect according to the principles of the so-called Privacy Shield ( or on the basis of so-called standard contractual clauses of the European Commission (

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there.
