In the following we inform about the collection of personal data when using our website. Personal data are all data that can be personally identifiable to you, e.g. name, address, e-mail addresses, user behavior.
1. Name and contact details of the responsible person

3. Processing of personal data and its legal basis
a. Contact by e-mail or contact form
When you contact us by e-mail or via the contact form, the data you provide (your name, company, function, e-mail address and, if applicable, your telephone number) will be stored by us in order to answer your questions. We delete the data arising in this context as soon as the enquiry has been answered or limit the processing if there are legal storage obligations. This represents the legal basis for the consent pursuant to Art. 6 I S. 1 a) EU-GDPR.
If you contact us on the basis of a job offer or on your own initiative, we will process your personal data for the duration of the application procedure. In the event of rejection, all applicants’ personal data will be completely deleted after two months following the receipt of the rejection, and paper applications will be destroyed, unless we need the documents to clarify enquiries or disputes.
b. Visit the website
When using the website for information purposes, i.e. if you do not register or other-wise provide us with information, we only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. If you wish to view our website, we collect data that is techni-cally necessary for us to display our website to you and to ensure stability and securi-ty. This represents the legal basis of the legitimate interest of the website operator pursuant to Art. 6 I S. 1 f) EU-GDPR.
In detail, this concerns the following personal data:
– IP address
– Date and time of the server request
– Host name of the accessing computer
– Referrer URL
– Operating system used
– Browser type and browser version
The aforementioned data will be deleted within 7 days. Furthermore, for security rea-sons, the firewall stores your IP address beyond this period. The IP address is kept by the firewall for 90 days for security purposes, after which it is deleted, unless there are legitimate interests against it.
When you register for our newsletter, your e-mail address will be used for our own advertising purposes.
If you have not given us your written consent to subscribe to our newsletter, we will use the so-called double opt-in procedure, i.e. we will not send you a newsletter by e-mail until you have expressly confirmed to us beforehand that we should activate the newsletter dispatch. The legal basis for the processing of your data is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 I S. 1 a) EU-GDPR, if you have expressly registered for the newsletter. Your personal data will be deleted upon revocation of your consent.
Within the framework of legal requirements, it may also be possible that you receive our newsletter without our express consent or that we contact you by e-mail because you have ordered goods or services from us, we have received your e-mail address in this connection and you have not objected to receiving information by e-mail. In this case, our legitimate inter-est in transmitting direct mail pursuant to Art. 6 I S. 1 f) EU-GDPR is to be regarded as the legal basis.

9. Data protection provisions about the application and use of YouTube
On this website, we 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.
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 pages of this website 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.
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.
With the embedding of YouTube, we have the purpose to present you with various videos on our website from our YouTube channel so that you can view them directly on our website. The legal basis for the processing of personal data described here is Article 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest in doing so lies in the great benefits that YouTube offers. By integrating external videos, we relieve our servers and can use corresponding resources elsewhere. This can i.a. increase the stability of our servers. In addition, YouTube or Google has a legitimate interest in the collected (personal) data to improve their own rights.
You have the right to object, which you can send to email@example.com at any time. You are not required to provide personal information, nor is it required by law, contract, or required.
