3. General information about data processing
We process data in connection with the operation of our business and our website.

We have provided appropriate notices below in cases where we transfer data outside of the EU or EEA.
4. Data processing
The data concerned, processing purposes, legal bases, recipients and transfers to third countries are listed below:
a) Log files when visiting our website
We log your visit to our website. We process the following data in this context:
- Name(s) of the web page(s) you have accessed;
- Date and time of access;
- The quantity of data transmitted;
- Browser type and version;
- Your operating system;
- Referrer URL (the previously visited website);
- Your IP address;
- Requesting provider.
According to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, the legal basis for this data processing is our compelling legitimate interest in the continuous operation and security of our website.
Log files are deleted after seven days unless they are needed in order to verify or investigate specific legal infringements occurring during the retention period.
In order to operate our website, we use the services of web hosting providers who process the data referred to above (log file when you visit our website) and all other data to be processed in connection with the operation of our website on our behalf.
According to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, the legal basis for this data processing is our overriding legitimate interest, thus permitting us to operate the website in the first place.
c) Contacting us
If you contact us, we will process your data, including your name, contact details (if you have provided them) and your message, exclusively for the purpose of processing and responding to your enquiry.
The legal basis for this data processing is our obligation to satisfy a contract and/or to satisfy pre-contractual obligations according to Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR and/or our compelling legitimate interest in processing your enquiry according to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.
d) Contacting us to apply for a job
If you contact us to send us your application for employment, e.g. by e-mail or via a contact form, your data (e.g. name, e-mail address, desired location if specified by you), your message and the application documents you submit will be processed exclusively for the purpose of processing and handling your application for employment.
The legal basis for data processing is primarily section 26 BDSG. This provision permits data to be processed that is required in connection with a decision to establish an employment relationship.
Should this data be necessary for the pursuit of legal rights after completion of the application process, data processing may be carried out in the pursuit of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, namely for purposes of asserting and/or defending against legal claims.
You have the option to sign up for our e-mail newsletter in order to receive regular information about our company and our offerings. We process any data you provide (e-mail address and other information provided voluntarily) when you register for our newsletter. We will send you an e-mail after your registration asking you to confirm your registration (“double opt-in”) in order to prevent misuse of your data. Your registration will be logged in order to be able to verify your registration in a legally compliant manner. This relates to the times of registration and confirmation as well as your IP address.
The legal basis for sending the newsletter is your prior consent pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. The legal basis for sending the confirmation e-mail for your registration, as well as associated data logging, is our legitimate interest according to Art. 6(1)(f) DSGVO so that we may properly verify your registration.
The newsletter will be sent by a service provider commissioned by us who acts on our behalf and upon our instructions.

- The web page viewed
- The website from which the user reached the page accessed on our website (referrer)
- The sub-pages accessed via the website
- Length of stay on the website

The legal basis for this data processing is your prior consent pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. You may withdraw your consent at any time using the Cookie Settings on our website.

We use third-party dynamic content (“content”) to optimise the display and offerings on our website.

The dynamic content is then transmitted to our website and displayed there.
We use third-party content in connection with the following functionalities:

We have integrated videos from YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave. San Bruno, CA 94066, USA ("YouTube”) on our website. Log data is transferred to YouTube servers in the United States when the videos are played.
