Processing of your data as part of the services we provide

In case as customers or business partners, or if you are interested in our services, the type, scope and purpose of the processing of your personal data are based on the contractual or pre-contractual relationships between us. We process personal data that we request from you or that you provide to us in order to answer your request, to make you an offer or to process your order. Affected persons are interested parties, business and contractual partners. The processing purpose is the processing of contractual services, communication, as well as answering contact requests and office and organizational procedures.

Unless otherwise stated in the further information in this data protection declaration, the processing of your personal data and its transfer to third parties is limited to the data required to answer your inquiries and/or to fulfill the contract, to protect our rights and to fulfill legal obligations duties are necessary and appropriate.

Affected data are

  • Inventory data (e.g. names, addresses)
  • Payment data (e.g. bank details, invoices)
  • Contact details (e.g. e-mail address, telephone number, postal address)
  • Contract data (e.g. subject of the contract, duration of the contract)

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 I 1 lit. b GDPR, the fulfillment of the contract or the fulfillment of pre-contractual inquiries.

Unless a specific storage period is mentioned in this data protection declaration, we store your personal data until the purpose for data processing no longer applies. We delete your personal data when we no longer need them, i.e. after the contractual relationship between us has ended, or after our legitimate interest in further processing of the data no longer applies, or if you request us to delete it. Mandatory legal provisions - in particular statutory retention periods - remain unaffected. It may also be necessary to process your personal data until the expiry of these periods in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims arising from contractual relationships, or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person. We will then only delete the personal data required for this after these periods have expired. However, until these deadlines expire, we limit the processing of this data to these purposes.

Entering our website - processing of personal data - type and purpose of use

When you visit our website, you transmit (due to technical necessity) data to our web server via your internet browser. The following data is processed in the server log files during an ongoing connection for communication between your internet browser and our web server:

  • the page from which the file was requested - referrer URL
  • the name of the file
  • the date and time of the request
  • a description of the type of web browser used / browser version and operating system
  • IP address of the requesting computer
  • Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
  • Amount of data transferred

For technical reasons (accessing our website), this data is stored for a short time. It is not possible for us to draw conclusions about individual persons based on this data. After 7 days at the latest, the IP addresses will be deleted or made anonymous.

The data is evaluated exclusively for internal purposes and does not allow us to draw any conclusions about your person. There is no comparison with other databases.

The data mentioned are processed for the following purposes:

  • Ensuring proper and smooth connection establishment of the website,
  • Ensuring comfortable use of the website,
  • Evaluation of system security and stability

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 I S. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest follows from the data collection purposes listed above. Under no circumstances do we use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person. You can visit our website without providing any personal information.


We use technically necessary cookies on our website. Cookies are small files that your browser creates automatically and that are stored on your end device (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you visit our website. Cookies do not damage your end device and do not contain viruses, Trojans or other malware.

Information is stored in the cookie that arises in connection with the specific end device used. However, this does not mean that we are informed of your identity. Cookies do not contain any personal data and can therefore not be assigned directly to any user.

We use technically necessary session cookies to recognize that you have already visited individual pages on our website. These cookies are automatically deleted after you close your browser. The data processed by cookies are required for the stated purposes to protect our legitimate interests and those of third parties in accordance with Article 6 I S 1 lit. f GDPR.

Inquiries by e-mail, fax or phone

If you contact us by e-mail, fax or phone, your request including all resulting personal data (e.g. name, request) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. The data will not be passed on without your consent. There is no legal or contractual obligation to provide your data, but it is not possible to process your request without providing your data.

This data is processed on the basis of Article 6 I S 1 lit b GDPR if your request is related to the fulfillment of a contract or is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 I S 1 lit a GDPR) and / or on our legitimate interest (Art. 6 I S 1 lit. f GDPR), since we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing the inquiries addressed to us.

The data sent to us via contact requests (e-mail) will be stored by us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular statutory retention periods - remain unaffected.

No social network plugins

There are no social plugins integrated on this website. Therefore no program code of a social network is active on our pages.

Data protection when sending application documents to us

If you send us your application documents, we will only use them to decide on your application and will not pass your data on to third parties. We would like to point out that we currently do not offer any encryption of your data when sending application documents by e-mail. However, you can e-mail your attachments, e.g. with the program 7ZIP (, in encrypted form and tell us your password separately, e.g. by telephone. You will receive an e-mail message from us to your e-mail address that we have received your application. You can also send us your application by post at any time.

Application data is kept and managed separately from other data sets.

If we conclude an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If no employment contract is concluded with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted no later than 6 months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that deletion does not conflict with any other legitimate interests of the person responsible for processing or the applicant expressly requests that his application be stored and retained for a longer period of time, e.g. has consented to possible subsequent contact with vacancies. Another legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a burden of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

Data processing for the purpose of establishing contact and processing your application data takes place in accordance with Article 6 I S 1 lit a, b GDPR on the basis of your voluntarily given consent and to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Data security - SSL encryption

We use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) method on our website for encryption and to protect the transmission of confidential content. If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties. You can tell whether an individual page of our website is being transmitted in encrypted form by the closed representation of the key or lock symbol in the status bar of your browser - the address line of your browser shows "https://" with SSL encryption.

Your personal data will not be transmitted to third parties for purposes other than those listed above or below.

We only pass on your personal data to third parties if:

  • You have given your express consent in accordance with Article 6 I S lit a GDPR,
  • This is permitted by law and is required under Article 6 I S lit b GDPR for the fulfillment of contractual relationships with you in order to carry out pre-contractual measures,
  • in the event that there is a legal obligation for us to pass on the data pursuant to Article 6 I S 1 lit c GDPR,
  • Processing pursuant to Article 6 I S 1 litf GDPR is necessary to protect our legitimate interests or those of a third party, unless the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, which require the protection of personal data, prevail, in particular when the data subject is a child.
