      In case you do not wish to save cookies on your computer you can deactivate this option in the system settings of your browser. Cookies which have already been saved may be deleted in your system settings. Disabling cookies may however limit the functionality of this website.

      Cookies which are necessary to allow electronic communications or to provide certain functions you wish to use are stored and processed pursuant to art. 6 par. 1, lit. f) of GDPR (DSGVO). We, the website operator, have a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies to ensure an optimized service provided free of technical errors.

This data will not be passed on without your express consent.

      Data entered by you into our contact form will be processed in line with art. 6 par. 1 lit. a) GDPR (DSGVO). You may revoke your consent at any time.

Imperative legal provisions remain unaffected, in particular legal retention periods (six years for commercial data storage obligation and ten years for tax-relevant data).
       
    4. Applications/ Application procedure
      The controller responsible for processing personal data collects and processes data of applicants with the purpose of handling a specific application procedure. This can also be done by electronic means, e.g. when an applicant transmits application documents to the contact person responsible for the job application by electronic means, e.g. by e-mail or via a web form on our website. In case the application results in an employment contract between the applicant and the responsible data processor, the personal data will be processed and stored according to legal regulations with the purpose to administer the employment. Article 6 par. 2 lit. b) GDPR (DSGVO) forms the legal basis for collecting and processing such data. This legal basis forms the legitimate interest for fulfilling a contract or pre-contractual measures. In case an employment contract is not concluded

      with the applicant, the application documents will be deleted automatically two months after informing the applicant about cancelling, except deletion of data is opposed by other justified interest for processing by the responsible party. Such justified interest might be e.g. the obligation of evidence in proceedings of General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
