3.General information on data processing
a) Scope of processing of personal data
The controller only collects and processes personal data of users, as far as this is necessary for the operation of a functional website and its contents and services. The collection and processing of personal data of the users basically takes place with the user’s consent. An exception applies in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for real reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

b) Legal basis for the processing of personal data
If the controller obtains the consent of the data subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis. In the processing of personal data required for the fulfilment of a contract in which the data subject is involved, Art. 6 para. 1 letter b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing required to carry out pre-contractual measures. Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which the company of the controller is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis. In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR shall be the legal basis. If the data processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of the controller or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the former interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.
c) Data erasure and storage period
The personal data of the data subject will be erased or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, personal data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. The personal data will also be blocked or erased if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned regulations expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the personal data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

4.Processor and data security
On the basis of separate written contracts or other legal acts under Union or Member State law, the controller also has personal data processed by service providers pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR. This does not involve the transfer of your personal data to third parties within the meaning of data protection law. The controller remains responsible to you under data protection law. The employees of the processor are obliged to maintain the confidentiality of your data just as the controller´s own employees are. They are subject to the instructions of controller. All technical and organisational security measures required by law to protect your personal data from loss and misuse are guaranteed by the controller. Your personal data is stored in secure operating environments, which are only accessible to employees of the processors to the extent that this is absolutely necessary to fulfil the contractual obligations.

5.Calling up this website
The controller collects and processes personal data concerning you only as far as this is necessary to provide a functional website as well as the contents and services of the controller. Each time this website is called up, the system of the controller automatically collects the following data from the computer system of the calling computer and stores them in log files: name of the file called up, date and time of the call up, amount of data transferred, message about successful call up, type of your browser and version used, IP address of the user, operating system of the user, Internet service provider of the user, websites from which the user’s system succeeded in accessing this website, websites which are called up by the user’s system via this website. This data is not merged with other data sources. The legal basis for the collection and storage of data in log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

The temporary collection of data by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to your computer and to ensure its reproduction. The data is also stored in log files to ensure the stability and functionality of the website. Furthermore, the data serves to optimise this website and to guarantee the security of the information technology systems of the controller against possible attacks from outside.

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. This is the case for the data collected for the provision of the website at the end of the respective session; within the framework of storing the data in log files after seven days at the latest. Further storage is possible. In this case the IP address is deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling computer is no longer possible. The collection of data for the provision of the website and its storage in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the online service, so that there is no possibility of objection.

6.Contact
On this website, you can contact the controller via an online contact form or via e-mail. The personal data (e.g. name, e-mail address) transmitted to the controller via the input mask of the contact form or by e-mail serve exclusively the processing of your contact inquiries. The data will not be passed on to third parties. The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted by contact form is, with your prior consent, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR, for the processing of data transmitted by e-mail Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. For the aforementioned purposes, the controller also has a legitimate interest in the processing of the data pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which the data were collected. This is the case when the processing of your respective inquiry has been completed, i.e. it can be inferred from the circumstances that the facts in question have been finally clarified. You have the right at any time to withdraw your consent to the processing of personal data as well as to object to the storage of your personal data transmitted to the controller by e-mail. In this case, the conversation cannot continue. For this purpose, you can contact the controller under section 1 of this Privacy Policy. All personal data stored in the course of contacting us will then be deleted.

7.Application procedure

The data controller collects and processes personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application procedure. The processing may also take place electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits corresponding application documents electronically, for example by e-mail or via a form located on this website. If an employment contract is concluded 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 two months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the responsible party oppose deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

9.Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. “(“Google”). Google uses cookie text files. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the online content by you is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active). Google will use this information on behalf of the controller to evaluate the use of the online content of the controller by you, to compile reports about the activities within this online content and to provide further services associated with the use of this online content and the use of the Internet to the controller. Pseudonymous user profiles can be created from the processed data. The controller only uses Google Analytics if IP anonymization is activated. This means that Google will reduce the IP address of users within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by the your browser is not merged with other Google data. The purpose of the use of Google Analytics is the analysis, optimization and economic operation of this online content.

10.Use of Plugins

a)Facebook The controller has integrated components of the enterprise Facebook on this website. Facebook is a social network. A social network is a place for social meetings on the Internet, an online community, which usually allows users to communicate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social network may serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences, or enable the Internet community to provide personal or business-related information. Facebook allows social network users to include the creation of private profiles, upload photos, and network through friend requests.The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, United States. If a person lives outside of the United States or Canada, the controller is the Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet website, which is operated by the controller and into which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-ins) was integrated, the web browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to download display of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook through the Facebook component. An overview of all the Facebook Plug-ins may be accessed under https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. During the course of this technical procedure, Facebook is made aware of what specific sub-site of our website was visited by the data subject. If the data subject is logged in at the same time on Facebook, Facebook detects with every call-up to our website by the data subject—and for the entire duration of their stay on our Internet site—which specific sub-site of our Internet page was visited by the data subject. This information is collected through the Facebook component and associated with the respective Facebook account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Facebook buttons integrated into our website, e.g. the “Like” button, or if the data subject submits a comment, then Facebook matches this information with the personal Facebook user account of the data subject and stores the personal data. Facebook always receives, through the Facebook component, information about a visit to our website by the data subject, whenever the data subject is logged in at the same time on Facebook during the time of the call-up to our website. This occurs regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If such a transmission of information to Facebook is not desirable for the data subject, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from their Facebook account before a call-up to our website is made. The data policy published by Facebook, which is available at https://www.facebook.com/privacy/explanation, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. In addition, it is explained there, which setting options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addition, different configuration options are made available to allow the elimination of data transmission to Facebook. These applications may be used by the data subject to eliminate a data transmission to Facebook.

b) YouTube
On this website, the controller has integrated components of YouTube. YouTube is an Internet video portal that enables video publishers to set video clips and other users free of charge, which also provides free viewing, review and commenting on them. YouTube allows you to publish all kinds of videos, so you can access both full movies and TV broadcasts, as well as music videos, trailers, and videos made by users via the Internet portal. The operating company of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, UNITED STATES. The YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, UNITED STATES. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to download a display of the corresponding YouTube component. Further information about YouTube may be obtained under https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/en/. During the course of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google gain knowledge of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject. If the data subject is logged in on YouTube, YouTube recognizes with each call-up to a sub-page that contains a YouTube video, which specific sub-page of our Internet site was visited by the data subject. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the data subject.

YouTube and Google will receive information through the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website, if the data subject at the time of the call to our website is logged in on YouTube; this occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on a YouTube video or not. If such a transmission of this information to YouTube and Google is not desirable for the data subject, the delivery may be prevented if the data subject logs off from their own YouTube account before a call-up to our website is made. YouTube’s data protection provisions, available at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/, provide information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.

c) Xing
The controller has integrated components of Xing on this website. Xing is an internet-based social network that enables users to connect with existing business contacts and make new business contacts. Individual users can create a personal profile on Xing. For example, companies can create company profiles or publish job offers on Xing.

The operating company of Xing is XING SE, Dammtorstraße 30, D-20354 Hamburg, Germany.

Each time one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and in which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, is visited, the internet browser on the data subject’s IT system is automatically prompted by the respective Xing component to download a presentation of the corresponding Xing components from Xing. Further information about the Xing plug-ins can be found at https://dev.xing.com/plugins. As part of this technical procedure, Xing receives information about the specific sub-page of this website that is visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in to Xing at the same time, Xing recognises which specific sub-page of this website the data subject is visiting each time the data subject visits this website and for the entire duration of the respective dwell time on this website. This information is collected by the Xing component and assigned by Xing to the data subject’s respective Xing account. If the data subject activates one of the Xing buttons integrated in this website, for example the “Share” button, Xing assigns this information to the data subject’s personal Xing user account and stores such personal data.

Xing then always receives information via the Xing component that the data subject has visited this website if the data subject is logged in to Xing at the same time as visiting the website. This applies regardless of whether or not the data subject clicks on the Xing component. If the data subject does not want such information to be forwarded to Xing, he or she can prevent such forwarding by logging out of his or her Xing account before accessing this website.

The data protection provisions published by Xing, which can be viewed at https://www.xing.com/privacy, provide information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Xing. Furthermore, Xing has published data protection information for the XING share button at https://www.xing.com/app/share?op=data_protection.

d) LinkedIn
The controller has integrated components of the LinkedIn Corporation in this website. LinkedIn is an Internet-based social network that enables users to connect with existing business contacts and establish new business contacts. More than 400 million registered people use LinkedIn in more than 200 countries. This makes LinkedIn currently the largest platform for business contacts and one of the most visited websites in the world.

The operating company of LinkedIn is LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. LinkedIn Ireland, Privacy Policy Issues, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland, is responsible for data protection issues outside the USA.

In the case of each individual visit to this website that is equipped with a LinkedIn component (LinkedIn plug-in), such a component prompts the browser used by the data subject to download a corresponding representation of the component from LinkedIn. Further information about LinkedIn plug-ins can be found at https://developer.linkedin.com/plugins. As part of this technical procedure, LinkedIn receives information about which specific sub-page of this website is visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in to LinkedIn at the same time, LinkedIn recognises which specific sub-page of this website the data subject is visiting during each visit to this website by the data subject and for the entire duration of the respective dwell time on this website. This information is collected by the LinkedIn component and assigned by LinkedIn to the data subject’s respective LinkedIn account. If the data subject activates a LinkedIn button integrated in this website, LinkedIn assigns this information to the data subject’s personal LinkedIn user account and stores such personal data.

LinkedIn then always receives information via the LinkedIn component that the data subject has visited this website if the data subject is logged into LinkedIn at the same time as visiting this website. This applies regardless of whether or not the data subject clicks on the LinkedIn component. If the data subject does not want this information to be forwarded to LinkedIn, he or she can prevent such forwarding by logging out of his or her LinkedIn account before accessing this website.

LinkedIn provides the option of unsubscribing from email messages, SMS messages and targeted advertisements, and to manage advertisement settings at https://www.linkedin.com/psettings/guest-controls. LinkedIn also uses partners such as Quantcast, Google Analytics, BlueKai, DoubleClick, Nielsen, Comscore, Eloqua and Lotame, which may set Cookies. Such Cookies can be rejected at https://www.linkedin.com/legal/Cookie-policy. LinkedIn’s applicable privacy policy can be viewed at https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy. LinkedIn’s Cookie policy can be viewed at https://www.linkedin.com/legal/Cookie-policy.

e) Google AdWords
This website uses Google Conversion Tracking. Google Adwords shall place a Cookie on your computer if you have come to this website via an advertisement placed by Google. The Cookie for conversion tracking is set if a user clicks on an advertisement placed by Google. These Cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for purposes of personal identification. If a user visits certain pages of the website and the Cookie has not yet expired, the controller and Google may determine that the user has clicked on the advertisement and was forwarded to that page. Each Google AdWords customer is provided with a different Cookie. Therefore, Cookies cannot be traced via the websites of the AdWords customers. Information obtained by way of the Conversion Cookies is aimed at drawing up conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have decided in favour of Conversion Tracking. The customers are informed of the total number of users who have clicked on their advertisement and who were forwarded to a page equipped with a conversion tracking tag. However, they are not provided with any information with which they can personally identify users.

If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can refuse the setting of a Cookie required for this, for example, by way of a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of Cookies or by setting your browser in such a way that Cookies from the “googleleadservices.com” domain are blocked.

f) Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps API to display geographical information visually. When using Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data about the use of map functions by visitors. You can find more information about Google’s data processing in the Google Privacy Policy. There you can also change your personal data protection settings in the Data Protection Center (cf. 9a.).

g) Google Web Fonts
In order to display the contents correctly and graphically appealing across all browsers, the controller on this website uses script libraries and font libraries such as Google Web Fonts (https://fonts.google.com/). Google Web Fonts are transferred to your browser’s cache to avoid multiple loading. If your browser does not support Google Web Fonts or does not allow access, content will be displayed in a default font. Calling script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. In theory, it is possible – but currently also unclear whether and, if so, for what purposes – that operators of corresponding libraries collect data.
The privacy policy of the library operator Google can be found here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

11.Newsletter
If you purchase goods or services on this website and provide your e-mail address, this may subsequently be used by the responsible party to send a newsletter. In such a case, the newsletter will only be used to send direct advertising for our own similar goods or services. No data will be passed on to third parties in connection with the processing of data for the dispatch of newsletters. The data is used exclusively for sending the newsletter.

On this website users can subscribe to a free newsletter. When registering for the newsletter, the data from the input mask (e-mail address) is transmitted to the controller. In addition, the following data is collected upon registration: IP address of the calling computer, date and time of registration. In the course of the registration process, your consent is obtained for the processing of the data and reference is made to this Privacy Policy. In connection with data processing for the dispatch of newsletters, no data is passed on to third parties. The data will be used exclusively for sending the newsletter. The legal basis for the processing of data after registration for the newsletter by the user is, with the user’s consent, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. The collection of the user’s e-mail address serves to deliver the newsletter. The collection of other personal data as part of the registration process serves to prevent misuse of the services or the e-mail address used.
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. The user’s e-mail address will therefore be stored for as long as the subscription to the newsletter is active. The other personal data collected during the registration process will generally be deleted after a period of seven days. The subscription to the newsletter can be cancelled by the user concerned at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic tariffs. A message in text form to the contact mentioned in section 1 of this Privacy Policy is sufficient (e.g. e-mail, fax, letter). For this purpose you will also find a link in each newsletter which you can use to unsubscribe from the newsletter. This also makes it possible to revoke the consent to the storage of personal data collected during the registration process.

Notification in text form directed to the contact details stated in Section 1 is sufficient (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter).

d) Payment via PayPal
The controller has integrated components of PayPal on this website. PayPal is an online payment service provider. Payments are processed via so-called PayPal accounts, which represent virtual private or business accounts. In addition, PayPal provides the option of processing virtual payments via credit cards if a user does not have a PayPal account. A PayPal account is managed via an e-mail address.

The right to erasure does not exist where processing is necessary: for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information; for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller; for reasons of public interest in the area of public health in accordance with lit. h and lit. i of Art. 9 para. 2 GDPR as well as Art. 9 para. 3 GDPR; for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes in accordance with Art. 89 para. 1 GDPR in so far as the right referred to in paragraph 1 is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of that processing; or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

d) Right to restriction of processing, Art. 18 GDPR
You may request the restriction of the processing of personal data concerning you under the following conditions: the accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data; the processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests the restriction of their use instead; the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; the data subject has objected to processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.
If the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, such data may only be processed – apart from being stored – with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending rights or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or on grounds of an important public interest of the Union or a Member State. If the processing restriction has been restricted according to the above conditions, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.

e) ´Right to information´, Art. 19 GDPR
If you have exercised your right to have the controller rectify, erase or restrict the processing, the controller is obliged to communicate any rectification or erasure of personal data or restriction of processing carried out in accordance with Art. 16, Art. 17 para. 1 and Art. 18 GDPR to each recipient to whom the personal data have been disclosed, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort.

f) Right to data portability, Art. 20 GDPR
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to the controller, in a structured, common and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to transfer those data to another data controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, where the processing is based on a consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR; and the processing is carried out by automated means. In exercising this right, you also have the right to have the personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible. This right shall not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
The right to data portability shall not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred on the controller.

g) Right to withdraw the consent pursuant to Art. 7 para. 3 GDPR
You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time and in the same form as you have given your consent. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of the processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

h) Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, Art. 77 GDPR
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right of appeal to the NDR Broadcasting Data Protection Officer in Hamburg if you believe that the processing of your personal data is contrary to the GDPR. The supervisory authority shall inform the complainant of the status and the results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Art. 78 GDPR.

i) Right to object, Art. 21 GDPR
You have the right to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you under Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or lit. f GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions. The controller no longer processes the personal data concerning you, unless the controller demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. If the personal data concerning you are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of the personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is associated with such direct marketing. If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes. You have the possibility to exercise your right to object by automated means using technical specifications, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.
You also have the right to object to the processing of personal data concerning you for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 para. 1 GDPR for reasons arising from your particular situation, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.
