Unless a more specific storage period has been specified in this data protection declaration, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for which it was collected ceases to apply. If you assert a justified request for deletion or revoke your consent to data processing, your data will be deleted, unless we have other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g. storage periods under tax or commercial law); in the latter case, the deletion will take place after these reasons have ceased to apply.
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke any consent already given at any time. The legality of the data processing carried out up to the time of revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to object to data collection in special cases and to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

This right of appeal is without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right to data transferability
You have the right to have data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible party, this will only take place to the extent that it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of your browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, deletion and correction
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to obtain information free of charge at any time about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to correct or delete this data. For this purpose, as well as for further questions regarding personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint.
Right to limitation of processing
You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted. To do so, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we usually need time to verify this. You have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data for the duration of the examination.
If the processing of your personal data was/is carried out unlawfully, you may request the restriction of the processing of your data instead of its deletion.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it for the exercise, defence or assertion of legal claims, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
If you have lodged an objection in accordance with Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR, a balance must be struck between your interests and ours. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data.

Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process (necessary cookies) or to provide certain functions requested by you (functional cookies, e.g. for the shopping basket function) or to optimise the website (e.g. cookies to measure the web audience) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, unless another legal basis is given. If consent to the storage of cookies has been requested, the storage of the cookies in question will take place exclusively on the basis of this consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR); consent may be revoked at any time.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for specific cases or generally and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed.

In all other cases, processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the enquiries addressed to us (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR), provided that the enquiry was made.
The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to its storage or the purpose for which it was stored ceases to apply (e.g. after your inquiry has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions — in particular retention periods — remain unaffected.

6. Own Services
Handling of applicant data
We give you the opportunity to apply to us (e.g. by email, post or via the online application form). In the following, we will inform you about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected during the application process. We ensure that the collection, processing and use of your data takes place in accordance with applicable data protection law and all other legal provisions and that your data will be treated in strict confidence.
Scope and purpose of data collection
If you send us a job application, we process your associated personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes taken during job interviews, etc.) to the extent that this is necessary to make a decision on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is § 26 BDSG-new according to German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR (general contract initiation) and — if you have given your consent — Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. Consent may be revoked at any time. Within our company, your personal data will only be passed on to persons involved in processing your application.
If the application is successful, the data submitted by you will be stored in our data processing systems on the basis of § 26 BDSG-new and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR for the purpose of carrying out the employment relationship.
Retention period of the data
If we cannot offer you a job, you reject a job offer or you withdraw your application, we reserve the right to store the data transmitted by you based on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit.f GDPR) for up to 6 months as of the end of the application process (rejection or withdrawal of the application). The data is then deleted, and the physical application documents are destroyed. In particular, the storage is for verification purposes in the event of a legal dispute. If it can be seen that the data will be required after the 6-month period has expired (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), deletion will only take place if the purpose for further storage no longer applies.
Longer retention can also take place if you have given your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit a GDPR) or if legal retention requirements prevent deletion.
Inclusion in the applicant pool
If we do not make you a job offer, you may have the option of being included in our applicant pool. In the event of admission, all documents and information from the application will be transferred to the applicant pool to contact you in the event of suitable vacancies.
Admission to the applicant pool is based solely on your express consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR). The giving of consent is voluntary and has no relation to the ongoing application process. The person concerned can withdraw their consent at any time. In this case, the data from the applicant pool will be irrevocably deleted, unless there are legal reasons for storing it.
The data from the applicant pool will be irrevocably deleted at the latest two years after consent has been given.
