Data Protection - Privacy Statement

Data Protection - Privacy Statement

The protection of personal data is a very important issue for us. Therefore, the processing of personal data is carried out in accordance with the applicable European and national legislation.

You can revoke your declaration(s) of consent with future effect at any time. Please contact then the controller referred to in Section 1 of this statement.

The following statement provides an overview of what kind of data is collected, how it is used and shared, what security measures we take to protect your information, and how you obtain information about the data you have provided to us.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, the Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as legal basis.
In the processing of personal data required to fulfil a contract of which the data subject is a party, the Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b) of the GDPR serves as legal basis. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which we are subject, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c) of the GDPR serves as legal basis.
If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or of a third party, and if the interest, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not prevail over the first mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) of the GDPR serves as legal basis for data processing.

Data erasure and duration of storage
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage is not anymore applicable. The data may also be stored if the storage is provided for by the European or national legislator and prescribed by EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which we are subject. A blocking or deletion of the data takes place also when a storage period prescribed by the mentioned regulations expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the purpose of a contract conclusion or a contract fulfilment.

§ 2 Definitions

The privacy statement is based on the terms, which the European legislative and regulatory authority uses in the EU General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter called GDPR). Our privacy statement aims to be easy to read and to understand. To guarantee this we shall first explain the most important terms used:

(1) Die Datenschutzerklärung beruht auf den Begrifflichkeiten, die durch den Europäischen Verordnungsgeber beim Erlass der EU-Datenschutz-Grundverordnung (nachfolgend: „DSGVO“ genannt) verwendet wurden. Die Datenschutzerklärung soll einfach lesbar und verständlich sein. Um dies zu gewährleisten, werden nachfolgend die wichtigsten Begriffe erläutert:

(2) Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter called 'data subject'). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

(3) Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the party responsible for the processing.

(4) Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

(5) Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.

(6) Pseudonymisation means the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

(7) Controller or the party responsible for the processing means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for the nomination of the controller, may be provided for by Union or Member State law.

(8) Processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

(9) Recipient means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients.

(10) Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.

(11) Consent of the data subject means any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject's wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

§ 3 Provision of the website and creation of log files

(1) Even in the case of merely informative use of the website, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we collect in an automated way following data and information from the computer system of the calling computer each time the website is accessed:
a) browser types and versions used
b) operating system used by the accessing computer
c) Internet service provider of the user
d) date and time of access to our website
e) websites from which an accessing system of the user gets to our website
f) websites, which are accessed from the user’s system via our website
g) content of the call on the website (specific pages)
h) amount of data transferred in each case

The data is stored in the log files of our server. Not affected by this are the IP addresses of the user or other data that allow the assignment of the data to a user. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.

When using this general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about the data subject. The data is evaluated only statistically.
The log files are stored anonymously, therefore an assignment to a person is excluded.

(2) The legal basis for the temporary storage of the log files is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) of the GDPR.

(3) The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary
a) to allow delivery of the website to the computer of the user. For this the IP address of the user must be recorded for the duration of the session.
b) to optimize the content of our website as well as the advertising for it
c) to ensure the functionality of our information technology systems and of the technology on our website
d) to provide prosecution authorities with information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyberattack

For the abovementioned purposes, we pursue our legitimate interests in the processing of data according to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) of the GDPR.

(4) The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purposes for which the personal data are processed - in this case, at the end of the use of our website.

(5) The compilation of the data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website, which is why there is no possibility to opt out.

The data is processed based on your consent (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR). You may revoke any consent you have given at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. This shall be without prejudice to the lawfulness of any data processing transactions that have taken place prior to your revocation.

§ 13 Web analysis of Google Analytics

(1) We use on our website services of Google Inc. (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) for the purpose of analysing internet surfing behaviour of the users of our website. The software places a cookie on your computer (please see the Section 4 about cookies). From all the individual pages the user has visited following data will be stored:
a) 2 bytes of the IP address of the calling system of the user
b) the website visited
c) entry pages, exit pages
d) length of stay on the website and exit rate
e) frequency of calling the website
f) country of origin and regional origin, language, browser, operating system, screen resolution, usage of Flash or Java
g) used search engines and terms used for searches

(2) The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website by the users is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp ()". The software is set so that the IP addresses are not saved in their entirety, but only in a shortened form. In this way, an assignment of the shortened IP address to the calling computer is no longer possible. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. However, the IP address transmitted by your browser to Google Analytics will not be merged with other data held by Google.

(3) Legal basis for the processing of personal data is provided by Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f) of the GDPR. For the exceptional cases in which personal data are transferred to the US, Google has committed itself to obey the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

(4) Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, and to compile reports on website activity. By evaluating the data obtained, we are able to compile information about the use of the individual components of our website. This helps us to constantly improve our website and make it more user-friendly. These purposes justify our legitimate interest in the processing of the data. The anonymisation of the IP address sufficiently takes into account the interest of the user what comes to the protection of his personal data.

(5) The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer needed for our record-keeping purposes. As far as we are concerned, this is the case after 14 months.

(6) The used cookies are stored on your computer and transmitted by this to our site. If you disagree with the collection and analysis of the usage data, you can prevent this by setting your browser software accordingly by deactivating or restricting the use of cookies. Already saved cookies can be deleted at any time. However, doing this may result in a situation in which you are not able to use all features of this website in full. You may also restrict Google from collecting data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address), and moreover, you can also restrict Google from processing this data by downloading the browser plug-in available at the following website and by installing it.

§ 14 Bing Ads Conversion Tracking

(1) We use the Bing Ads service on our website. It is an analysis service of Microsoft Corporation, One Microsoft, Redmond, WA 98052-6399, USA. The service allows us to track your activity on our website, provided that you have accessed our website through advertisements from Bing Ads. The software sets a cookie on your computer (for cookies see Section 4). This tells us and Microsoft that a person has clicked on the ad, and that this person has been redirected to our site, and also the fact from which site the person comes to our site. We also learn the total number of users who clicked on an ad and were redirected to us.

(2) Neither Microsoft nor we receive personal data.

(3) The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website is usually transmitted to a server in the USA and stored there.

(4) The information collected by means of the conversion cookie is used to generate statistics for us. By analysing the data obtained we are able to compile information about the use of our advertisements. These purposes justify our legitimate interest for the data processing.

(5) Legal basis for the processing of personal data is provided by Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f) of the GDPR.

(6) The used cookies are stored on your computer and transmitted by this to our site. If you disagree with the collection and analysis of the usage data, you can prevent this by setting your browser software accordingly by deactivating or restricting the use of cookies. Cookies which have already been stored can be deleted at any time. However, doing this may result in a situation in which you are not able to use all features of this website in full.

§ 15 Facebook-, Custom Audiences and Facebook Marketing Services (Tracking Pixel)

(1) Within the scope of our online offer we have placed on our website the so-called Facebook pixel created by the social network Facebook, operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA. 94025, USA, or if you are located in the EU, operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook"), with the purpose of pursuing our legitimate interests in the analysis, optimisation and cost-effective operation of our online offer.

(2) With the help of the Facebook pixel, it is on the one hand possible for Facebook to assess the visitors to our website as a target group for display of advertisements (so-called "Facebook ads"). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to display the Facebook Ads we have inserted only to those Facebook users who have shown interest in our online offering, or who have certain features (e.g. interest in certain topics or products based on the websites visited by them). We transmit data about before mentioned users to Facebook (so-called "Custom Audiences"). By means of the Facebook pixel we also want to make sure that our Facebook ads are in line with the potential interest of users and that the ads are not annoying. With the help of the Facebook pixel, we can also understand effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes whereby we see, whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called "conversion"). This belongs to our legitimate interests.

(3) The Facebook pixel is integrated when calling our website directly through Facebook, and it can store on your device a so-called cookie, i.e. a small file. If you subsequently log in to Facebook or visit Facebook in the logged-in state, the visit to our online offer will be noted in your profile. The data collected about you are anonymous to us, and do not therefore give us any conclusions about the identity of the users. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook, so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible, and the data can be used by Facebook as well for its own market research and advertising purposes. If we should send data to Facebook for cross-checking purposes, they will be encrypted locally in the browser and only then sent to Facebook via a secure https connection. This is done solely with the purpose of crosschecking the data which Facebook likewise has encrypted.

(4) Furthermore, when using the Facebook pixel we use the additional function "Advanced Matching” to transfer data (such as telephone numbers, e-mail addresses or Facebook IDs of the users) for establishment of target audiences ("Custom Audiences" or "Look Alike Audiences") to Facebook (encrypted). For more information about "Advanced Matching", please see: https://www.facebook.com/business/help/611774685654668.

(5) Legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) of the GDPR and GDPR Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a). Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, which gives a guarantee of compliance with European privacy legislation (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active).

(6) Also on the basis of our legitimate interests (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR) and your consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) of the GDPR), we use the tool "Custom Audiences from File" of the social network Facebook, Inc. In this case, the e-mail addresses of the newsletter recipients are uploaded to Facebook. The upload process is encrypted. The upload is used solely to identify recipients of our Facebook ads. We want to make sure that the ads are only displayed to users who are interested in our information and services.

(7) The processing of the data by Facebook is part of Facebook's data use policy. Accordingly, general instructions on how to display Facebook Ads can be found in Facebook's Data Use Policy: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php. For specific information and details about the Facebook Pixel and how it works, visit the Facebook Ads Help Center: https://www.facebook.com/business/help/651294705016616.

(8) You may object to the capture of data by the Facebook Pixel, and to the use of your data for the purpose of displaying Facebook Ads. To set which types of ads you see in Facebook, you can go to the page set up by Facebook and follow the instructions for the usage-based advertising settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads. The settings are platform independent, i.e. they are adopted for all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.

§ 16 Google Marketing & Remarketing Services

(1) Based on our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online services subject to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR) we use the marketing and remarketing services of Google Inc. (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA), shortened as "Google Marketing Services ".

(2) Google Marketing Services enable us to better target advertisements on our website to show only ads that are potentially relevant to interests of a website user. If ads are displayed to a user for products he's been interested in on other websites, this is called remarketing. For these purposes, so-called "Web Beacons" are integrated into the website when you call our website or other websites on which Google Marketing Services is active. With the help of web beacons an individual cookie, i.e. a small file (or instead of cookies, comparable technologies can be used) is stored on your device. This file indicates which web pages you visited, what content you are interested in and what kind of offers you clicked, it takes also notice of technical information of the browser and operating system, referring web pages, time spent on the website and other information on the use of online services. These are also our legitimate interests. Your IP address will also be recorded, but we inform you in regard to Google Analytics that the IP address will be truncated within member states of the European Union, or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, and only in exceptional cases will the IP address transferred to a server of Google in the US and shortened there. The IP address will not be merged with your data in other Google online services. The above information may, however, also be linked by Google with corresponding information from other sources. If you subsequently visit other websites, ads tailored to your interests may be displayed to you.

(3) The data of the users are processed pseudonymised by Google marketing services, i.e. Google stores and processes e.g. not your name or e-mail address, but relevant cookie-related data within pseudonymous user profiles. From the perspective of Google, the ads are not managed and displayed to a specifically identified person, but to the cookie owner, regardless of who that cookie owner is. This does not apply, if a user has expressly allowed Google to process the data without this pseudonymisation. The information collected about you by Google Marketing Services is transmitted to Google and stored on Google servers in the United States. Due to the pseudonymised storage of the data, your interests as a user are sufficiently safeguarded.

(4) In addition, we may use the "Google Tag Manager" to integrate and manage analysing and marketing services of Google on our website.

(5) Legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR and Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a) GDPR. Google is certified in accordance with the Privacy Shield Agreement, which guarantees compliance with European privacy legislation (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

(6). The controller is Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. For more information about Google's data usage for marketing purposes, see the overview page: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads. Google's Privacy Policy is located at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy.

(7) If you wish to opt-out of interest-based advertising provided by Google Marketing Services, you can use Google's settings and opt-out options: http://www.google.com/ads/preferences.

§ 17 Google DoubleClick

(1) This website uses Google DoubleClick. It is a service for the integration of Google advertising by Google Inc. (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). DoubleClick transfers data to the DoubleClick server of each impression and each click, or of another activity. Each of these data transfers triggers a cookie request to your browser. If the browser accepts this request, DoubleClick sets a cookie (see Cookies, Section 4). Your browser will be assigned a pseudonymous identification number (ID) to check which ads have appeared in your browser and which ads have been viewed. Cookies enable Google and its affiliate websites, including us, to display ads based on previous visits to our website or to other websites. Each time you visit any of our individual pages that incorporate a DoubleClick component, the Internet browser will automatically be prompted to submit data to Google for the purposes of online advertising and settlement of commissions.

(2) It is also possible for DoubleClick by means of the identification cookies to track conversions. For example, conversions will be tracked if you previously have seen a DoubleClick ad, and then you are making a purchase on the advertiser's website using the same Internet browser.

(3) The cookies do not collect personal data. However, a DoubleClick cookie may contain additional campaign identifiers. A campaign ID identifies the campaigns you have already been dealing with.

(4) We have no influence on the collected data, nor are we aware of the full scope of data collection or time limit for the storage of data. Your data will be transmitted to the USA and evaluated there. If you are logged in with your Google Account, your details may be associated with it.

(5) Purpose of the cookie is to optimize and display advertisements that may be of interest to you in order to make our website more interesting to you and to finance it. The cookie may also be used to generate or improve reports on advertising campaigns and to avoid multiple overlays of the same advertisement.

(6) Legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. For cases where personal information is transferred to the US, Google has committed itself to obey the EU-US Privacy Shield, please see at: https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

(7) You can disable Google DoubleClick cookie installation in several ways:
a) By setting your browser software accordingly. Especially the suppression of third-party cookies will prevent you from receiving any third-party advertisements; however, you may not be able to use all features of our websites in this case.
b) By permanent deactivation in your browsers Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome using the following link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We point out that in this case you may not be able to use all features of the website offer in full.

(8) The controller is Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing, as well as other information about your rights and settings available to protect your privacy, visit http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy.

§ 18 Google Adwords Conversion with Remarketing

(1) This website uses Google Adwords. It is a service for the integration of advertising by Google Inc. (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA).

(2) Google AdWords allows an advertiser to select keywords that display an ad on Google's search engine results only when the search engine retrieves a keyword-related search result. In the Google Display Network the ads are distributed to topic-relevant web pages using an automated algorithm and according to previously defined keywords..

(3) The aim of Google Adwords is to promote our website by displaying interest-based advertising on third-party sites, in the results of the search engine Google and in third-party advertisements on our site. It is in our interest to show you advertisements that are of interest to you, to make our website more interesting to you and to reach a fair calculation of advertising costs. These advertising materials are delivered by Google via so-called "ad servers". For this purpose, we use ad server cookies that measure certain performance parameters, such as display of advertisements or user clicks. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Adwords will store a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days. This cookie stores usually for analysing purposes following parameters: the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (Frequency), last impression (relevant to post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wants to be addressed).

(4) The cookies allow Google to recognise your internet browser (see also Section 4). If a user visits certain pages of an Adwords customer's website, and the cookie stored on his computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer can detect that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page. Each Adwords customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of Adwords customers. We receive only statistical evaluations provided by Google. By means of of these evaluations we can identify which of the used advertising measures are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of advertising material, and above all, we cannot identify the users on the basis of this information. If you're registered with a service provided by Google, Google may associate the visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google, or have not logged in, there is a chance that the provider will find and store your IP address. We ourselves do not collect and process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising activities.

(5) Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google server. We have no influence on the collected data, nor are we aware of the full scope of data collection or time limit for the storage of data. Your data is transmitted to and evaluated in the USA. By integrated AdWords Conversion, Google receives the information that you have accessed the relevant section of our website, or that you have clicked on an ad from us. Furthermore, both Google and we will receive information from the conversion cookie as to whether you generated any sales, if you came to our website through an AdWords advertisement.

(6) Remarketing: In addition to Adwords Conversion, we use the Google Remarketing application. This is a feature that allows us to show advertisements to internet users who have previously been on our website. The purpose of this is to display interest-relevant advertisements to you. This is done by means of cookies stored in your browser, through which your behaviour as a user during visits to various websites is recorded and evaluated by Google. With every visit to a website on which Google Remarketing's service has been integrated, the person's browser is automatically identified by Google. This is how Google detects your previous visit to our website. Within this technical process, Google gains knowledge of personal data, i.e. of your IP address or your surfing behaviour. The data, including your personal data, which has been collected in the context of remarketing and which may be stored by Google, will not be aggregated according to their own statements. However, also these data are transmitted to Google in the US and stored there.

(7) Legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. For cases where personal data is transferred to the US, Google has committed itself to obey the EU-US Privacy Shield, please see at: https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

(8) You can prevent participation in this tracking process in several ways:
a) by setting your browser software accordingly, especially the suppression of third party cookies will prevent you from receiving any advertisements from third party vendors; however, you may not be able to use all features of our websites in this case.
b) by disabling the cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain "www.googleadservices.com", at https://www.google.com/settings/ads, however, these settings will be deleted when you delete your cookies;
c) by deactivating the interest-based ads of the providers that are participating in the “About Ads” self-regulatory campaign, please see at: http://www.aboutads.info/choices, however, this deactivation will be deleted when you delete your cookies;
d) by permanent deactivation in your browsers Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome using the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We point out that in this case you may not be able to use all features of this website in full.

§ 19 Vacancies

(1) We provide job advertisements on our website.

(2) You can send application documents to us via mail. In this context we process the information we receive from you and
a) the email address
b) if necessary, further information, which is transmitted via the e-mail.

We ask you not to provide us with such information right from the outset.
Exceptions to the above mentioned are, if necessary, information on gender and possible severe disability. This information is necessary for us to take and respect protective measures or other actions required in order to comply with the legal requirements set for protection. However, you are under no circumstances obliged to provide us with such information.

(5) Your data will primarily be processed exclusively for the implementation of the application process. If your application is successful, the data becomes part of the personnel file and can be used for establishment and termination of employment relationship. If we are at the moment unable to provide you with employment, we process your data to defend ourselves against any legal claims, in particular on account of alleged discrimination in the application process. Insofar as you receive reimbursements, the corresponding accounting documents will be processed to fulfil retention obligations set by commercial or tax laws. Legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR, as far as the data are processed to make a decision on the establishment of an employment relationship, and as far as the data are then included in the employment relationship. If the data is stored to provide a security for claims, the legal basis is Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR. Legitimate interest here is the access to documents providing evidence for possible defence. We process information and documents that are not required for the aforementioned purposes on the basis of your conclusive consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR, which you have given us by sending your application. If you receive reimbursements from us, legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) GDPR.

(6) Successful applications and employment relationship include necessary data that we store until the end of the employment relationship and for up to 3 years thereafter. The data concerning an application, which we had to opt for a rejection, we still process for a period of 6 months after having sent the letter of rejection to safeguard our legitimate interests. If a legal claim is lodged against us, we store the data until the legal process is completed. This also applies to the voluntarily obtained data. If you receive reimbursements, the corresponding accounting documents will be stored to fulfil retention obligations set by commercial or tax laws maximally until the 31st of March of the eleventh calendar year after the payment, and in the case of commercial and business letters or other tax-relevant documents until the seventh calendar year after their creation.
