6. Plugins and tools

YouTube with privacy-enhanced mode

This website integrates videos of YouTube. The operator of this site is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. We use YouTube in privacy-enhanced mode. According to YouTube, this mode ensures that no information is stored about the visitors on this website before they view the video. However, the privacy-enhanced mode does not necessarily exclude the transfer of data to YouTube partners. For example, YouTube establishes a connection to the Google DoubleClick network, irrespective of whether you view a video. As soon as you start a YouTube video on this website, a connection is established to the YouTube servers. The YouTube server will be informed regarding which of our pages you visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube will allow you to associate your browsing behaviour directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of YouTube. Moreover, after starting a video, YouTube can store various cookies on your device. YouTube can obtain information on the visitors of this website with the help of these cookies. This information is used, among other things, to record video statistics, improve user friendliness and prevent fraud attempts. The cookies remain on your device until you delete them. If applicable, additional data processing procedures can be triggered after the start of a YouTube video, over which we have no influence. The use of YouTube occurs in the interest of attractive presentation of our online offering. This constitutes a legitimate interest in the meaning of Art. 6 [1f] GDPR. If corresponding consent was requested (e.g. consent to storage of cookies), the processing occurs exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 [1a] GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time. You can find more information on data protection in the Google’s Privacy Policy at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

 

Google Maps (with consent)

This website used the map service Google Maps via an API. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. To guarantee data protection on this website, Google Maps is deactivated if you access this website for the first time. A direct connection is only established to Google’s servers if you independently activate Google Maps (consent according to Art. 6 [1a] GDPR). This prevents your data being transmitted directly to Google upon first accessing the page. After activation, Google Maps will save your IP address. Normally, this is then transmitted to a server of Google in the USA and stored there. The provider of this page has no influence on this data transmission after activation of Google Maps. More information regarding the use of user data can be found in the Google Privacy Policy: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

 

7. Our own services

Treatment of applicant data

We offer you the opportunity to send us an application (e.g. by email, by post or online application form). In the following, we provide information on the scope, purpose and use of your personal that is data collected as part of the application process. We pledge that your data is collected, processed and used in observance with applicable data protection law and all other statutory provisions and that your data is treated as strictly confidential. Scope and purpose of data collection If you send us your application, we process your associated personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes as part of the application discussions, etc.) if this is necessary to decide on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is Section 26 of the German Data Protection Act (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 [1b] GDPR (general contract initiation) and – if you granted consent – Art. 6 [1a] GDPR. The consent can be revoked at any time. Within our company, your personal data will only be passed on to persons who are involved in the processing of your application. If the application is successful, the data you submit is stored on the basis of Section 26 of the German Data Protection Act (BDSG) and Art. 6 [1b] GDPR for the purpose of conducting the employment relationship in our data processing systems. Preservation duration of data If we cannot make you any job offer, you reject a job offer or withdraw your application, we reserve the right to retain the data you have sent to us on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 [1f] GDPR) up to six months from the termination of the application proceedings (rejection or withdrawal of the application). The data is then deleted and the physical application documents are destroyed. In particular, the retention serves the purpose of evidence in the event of a legal dispute. If it is evident that the data will be needed after the expiry of the six-month period (e.g. due to an imminent or pending legal dispute), deletion only takes place if the purpose of the continuing retention lapses. Moreover, lengthy retention can occur if you issued corresponding consent (Art. 6 [1a] GDPR) or if the deletion is contradicted by statutory preservation obligations. Inclusion in the applicant pool If we do not make you a job offer, the option exists to include you in our applicant pool. In the event of inclusion, all documents and information from the application is included in the applicant pool so that we can contact you in the event of suitable vacancies. Inclusion in the applicant pool occurs exclusively on the basis of your express consent (Art. 6 [1a] GDPR). Granting of consent is voluntary and does not have any relationship with the ongoing application procedure. The data subject can revoke their consent at any time. In this case, the data from the applicant pool is irretrievably deleted if no grounds for statutory retention exist. The data from the applicant pool is irretrievably deleted at the latest two years after the granting of consent.
