Please be aware that data transfer via the internet is subject to security risks and, therefore, complete protection against third-party access to transferred data cannot be ensured.

Server data

For technical reasons, data such as the following, which your internet browser transmits to us (known as server log files), is collected:

  • 
type and version of the browser you use 


  • operating system 


  • website(s) that linked you to our site (referrer URL)
  • websites that you visit 


  • date and time of your visit 


  • your Internet Protocol (IP) address. 





This anonymous data is stored separately from any personal information you may have provided, thereby making it impossible to connect it to a particular person.

Newsletter

Our website offers you the opportunity to subscribe to our newsletter. The newsletter provides you periodically with information about our services. To receive our newsletter, we require a valid e-mail address. We will check the e-mail address you provide for the purpose of determining whether you are in fact the owner of the e-mail address as well as the date and time you subscribed. This serves to protect us in the event that a third party improperly and without your knowledge makes use of your e-mail address to subscribe to our newsletter. We will not collect any other data. The data collected in this way is used solely for the purpose of subscribing to our newsletter. No data is transferred to third parties, nor is any of this information matched to any information that other components of our website may collect. You may cancel your subscription to the newsletter at any time. You will find additional details in the e-mail confirming your subscription as well as in each newsletter.


Contacting us

On our website we offer you the opportunity to contact us, either by e-mail and/or by using a contact form. In such event, information provided by the user is stored for the purpose of facilitating communications with the user. No data is transferred to third parties, nor is any of this information matched to any information that may collected by other components of our website.

Use of the PIWIK web analytics service

Our website uses PIWIK, a web analytics service. To carry out analysis, PIWIK uses cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and enable us to analyse your use of the site. The usage information generated by this cookie (including a truncated version of your IP address) is transmitted to our server and stored there for the purposes of analysing usage. This helps us with website optimisation. As part of this process, your IP address is immediately rendered anonymous so that you as user remain anonymous to us. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this site is not transferred to third parties. You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings in your browser software accordingly. You should be aware, however, that by doing so you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of this website.

Should you be unwilling to have this data from your visit stored and analysed, you may at any time subsequently withdraw your consent to it being stored and used with a click of the mouse. What is known as an opt-out cookie is then placed in your browser and, as a result, PIWIK will no longer collect any session data. Note: If you delete cookies from your browser settings, the opt-out cookie will also be deleted and will need to be reactivated.

Use of YouTube components with enhanced data protection mode

On our website we use components (videos) of YouTube, LLC 901 Cherry Ave., 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA, a company belonging to Google Inc., Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
To this end, we use the “ - enhanced data protection mode - ” option provided by YouTube.
When you display a page that has an embedded video, a connection will be made to the YouTube servers and the content will appear on the website via a communication to your browser. According to the information provided by YouTube, in “ - enhanced data protection mode - ”, data is only transferred to the YouTube servers, in particular which of our websites you have visited, if you watch the video. If you are logged into YouTube at the same time, this information will be matched to your YouTube member account. You can prevent this from happening by logging out of your member account before visiting our website. Further information about data protection by YouTube is provided by Google under the following link: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/

Publication of vacancy announcements / online job applications

We electronically collect and process your application data for the purpose of completing the application process. If your application results in the conclusion of an employment contract, the data collected from you may be stored in your personnel file for the purposes of normal organisational and administrative processes in compliance with appropriate legal requirements. Upon rejection of your application, data you have provided is automatically deleted two months after notification of rejection. This does not apply in such instances where, due to legal requirements (such as the burden of proof obligation stipulated in the German Act on Equal Treatment) a longer storage period is necessitated or when you expressly agreed to have your data stored for a longer period in our database of prospective applicants.

Information/cancellation/erasure

On the basis of the Bavarian Data Protection Act (BayDSG), you may contact us at no cost if you have questions relating to the collection, processing or use of your personal data, if you wish to request the correction, blocking or erasure of the same, or if you wish to cancel explicitly granted consent. Please note that you have the right to have incorrect data corrected or to have personal data erased, where such claim is not barred by any legal obligation to retain this data.
