Note on data transmission to the USA and other third countries
Among other things, tools of companies based in the USA or other third countries that are not safe from the point of view of data protection are integrated on our website. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transmitted to these third countries and processed there. We wish to point out that a level of data protection comparable with the EU cannot be guaranteed in these countries. For example, US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as the data subject being able to take legal action against this. The possibility cannot therefore be ruled out of US authorities (e.g. intelligence services) processing, evaluating and permanently storing your data located on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no control over such processing activities.
Analysis tools and tools of third-party providers
SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator, for example. An encrypted connection can be recognised by the fact that the address line of your browser will change from “http://” to “https://” and by the padlock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you send to us cannot be read by third parties.
Your rights in connection with our data processing activities

You also have the right to request the correction or deletion of those data. If you have given your consent regarding data processing, you can withdraw that consent at any time for the future. You also have the right to request the restriction of processing of your personal data under certain circumstances. In addition, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.

3. Data collection on this website
A distinction is made between cookies which are technically necessary and cookies which are not technically necessary (e.g. for analysis purposes).
Technically necessary cookies are required for the purpose of carrying out the electronic communication process or for providing certain functions that you require (e.g. for the shopping basket function) or for website optimisation (e.g. cookies for measuring web audiences). These cookies are stored on your terminal when you visit our website. Unfortunately, it is not possible for our website to operate without these technically necessary cookies. We use these cookies on account of our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6(1f) of the GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in storing cookies in order for the services that we provide to be free from technical defects and optimised.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, the acceptance of cookies is excluded for certain cases or in general and the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed is activated. Deactivating cookies can restrict the functionality of this website.
The choice made in the cookie banner represents your consent under data protection regulations in accordance with Art. 6(1a) of the GDPR or in the case of transmission to third countries in accordance with Art. 49(1a) of the GDPR. Your consent is granted voluntarily and you can withdraw it at any time with effect for the future. You can withdraw your consent by changing the choice you previously made in our cookie banner or by deleting all cookies via your browser and reloading our website.
The consent banner places cookies in your browser in order to save the choice you made via the consent banner. These will continue to be stored until you ask us to delete them or you delete the cookies yourself or the reason for storing the data no longer applies. Mandatory retention periods will remain unaffected. The legal basis for the use of the consent banner is Art. 6(1c) of the GDPR. No further personal data relating to you will be transmitted to third parties in connection with the use of the consent banner.
Server log files
When you visit our website, technical data (so-called server log files) are collected. These include the type and version of the browser that you are using, the operating system, the referrer URL, the host name of the accessing computer, the time of the page request, your IP address and the type of transmission protocol, e.g. https. The collection of these data is carried out on account of our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6(1f) of the GDPR in the website being displayed without any technical defects and optimised.
Our website uses a contact form. The information that you enter on that form as well as the contact details stored will be stored by us for the purpose of processing your request and in case any subsequent queries should arise. The details input by you will be processed based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6(1a) of the GDPR.

Statutory retention periods will remain unaffected by this.
Queries by e-mail, telephone or fax
If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your contact details, queries and associated details will be stored by us.
If your contact is in connection with the fulfilment of a contract or with precontractual measures with us, your data will be processed based on Art. 6(1b) of the GDPR for the purpose of contract fulfilment. If that is not the case, the processing of your data based on our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6(1f) of the GDPR will be based on the quick and effective processing of enquiries sent to us. The enquiries that you send us as well as information connected to those enquiries will be kept by us until the reason for storing them (in particular the completion of your request) no longer applies or you ask us to delete them. Statutory retention periods will remain unaffected by this.
Registration options on the website
You can register as a partner via our website. We will only use the details that you enter for the purpose of providing the service for which you have registered. Mandatory information in the registration process must be provided by you in full, otherwise we will not be able to accept your registration.
The data entered in connection with your registration is processed for the purpose of fulfilling the user relationship concluded between us and you and, if necessary, initiating further contractual relationships in accordance with Art. 6(1b) of the GDPR. In addition, we will inform you about important changes to our range of services as well as technical changes via the e-mail address you have provided.
These data will continue to be stored for as long as you remain registered on our website. Statutory retention periods will remain unaffected by this.
4. Plug-ins and tools
Our website uses the mapping service Google Maps. The service-provider for Europe is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google Maps makes it easier for us to show you where places are and thus improve the service that we provide you with. For instance, you can see at a glance where we are and display the shortest route to our site, for example.
As soon as you give your consent regarding the use of Google Maps, information relating to the use of this website, including your IP address, the date and time of your visit to the website in question, the URL of the website accessed and the (starting location) address entered in the route planner function can be sent to Google in the USA. Please also note the information in the section entitled “Note on data transmission to the USA and other third countries” with regard to this. We have no control over this data transmission.
Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses it for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or needs-based website design. This type of evaluation is carried out in particular for the purpose of displaying appropriate ads and to inform other users of the social network regarding your activities on our website.
If you are logged into Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not want the assignment to your Google profile, you must log out before activating the button.
Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by Google can be found in the privacy policies of Google. These also contain further information regarding your rights and setting options for protecting your privacy: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/ privacy.
The use of Google Maps is carried out based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6(1a) of the GDPR. The transmission of data to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. You can find details here:
The way you grant consent is either by allowing use via the consent banner that appears when you access our website or by confirming use by means of the extended opt-in action. The granting of consent is voluntary. You can withdraw your consent at any time.
YouTube with enhanced data protection
Videos from the YouTube video portal are integrated on our website so that YouTube videos can be watched directly on our website. The operator of YouTube is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
We have integrated all YouTube videos in enhanced data protection mode. According to YouTube, no information will therefore be stored about you before you watch the video. The data referred to in the next paragraph will not be transmitted until you click on the button to start the video. We have no control over this data transmission.
If you watch the YouTube videos integrated on our website, YouTube will download DoubleClick by Google in order to show you relevant ads in the Google network DoubleClick. For this purpose, DoubleClick by Google uses a cookie to assign a pseudonymous identification number (ID) to your browser in order to check which ads have been accessed. We do not use DoubleClick ourselves. We therefore have no control over the data collected or data processing procedures carried out by DoubleClick by Google.
If you have a YouTube account and you are logged into that account, YouTube can assign your surfing behaviour directly to your YouTube account. If you do not want that to happen, you must log out of your YouTube account first before visiting our website.
5. Own services
You can send us your application by e-mail, by post or using an online application form.
When you send us your application, we will process the data and information contained therein solely for the purpose of deciding whether or not to establish an employment relationship with you. The legal basis for this is § 26(1) of the Federal Data Protection Act in conjunction with Art. 6(1b) of the GDPR. For this purpose, we use your master data and contact details, your qualification credentials and other details such as number of children, marital status, application photograph, nationality and religion as well as any further data that you provide us with as part of your application.
If your application is successful, we will transfer your applicant data to your personnel file for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship in accordance with § 26(1) of the Federal Data Protection Act in conjunction with Art. 6(1b) of the GDPR.
If you withdraw your application, we are unable to offer you a job or you turn down any such offer, we will retain your application data for six months from the end of the application process. The data will then be deleted or the application documents will be destroyed. Storage is carried out based on our legitimate interest in retaining the application data and documents for the purpose of providing documentary evidence in the case of a legal dispute in accordance with Art. 6(1f) of the GDPR. Should it become evident that the data and documents will still be required due to an imminent or pending legal dispute, they will be retained beyond the six-month period.
Your application documents will be forwarded within our company solely to persons who are involved in the processing of applications.
6. Your rights in connection with data processing
If we process your personal data, you have a number of different rights as the data subject. You can assert those rights by sending us an e-mail to the e-mail address shown in the imprint, stating the right that you are asserting. We may possibly contact you with queries for the purpose of verifying your identity in order for us to be able to rule out fraud beyond doubt.
Rights to information, correction and deletion
In accordance with Art. 15 of the GDPR, you have a comprehensive right to obtain information regarding the processing of your personal data at any time. Under certain conditions, you also have a right to correction in accordance with Art. 16 of the GDPR as well as to deletion of your data in accordance with Art. 17 of the GDPR.
Right to object to data collection in special cases as well as to direct marketing
In accordance with Art. 21(1) of the GDPR, you have the right to object to data processing that we carry out based on our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 (1f) of the GDPR at any time. If you object to such processing, we will suspend the data processing unless there are compelling legitimate reasons for continuing the processing which outweigh your interests or the processing is carried out in order to exercise, defend or assert legal claims.
In accordance with Art. 21(2) of the GDPR, you also have the right to object to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing at any time. In that case, we will stop processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes with immediate effect.
Right to restrict processing
In accordance with Art. 18 of the GDPR, you can request the restriction of our processing of your personal data insofar as one of the following conditions is met:
- you doubt the correctness of the data stored by us and therefore want processing to be restricted while the correctness of the data is being verified by us,
- the processing of the data is being/has been carried out unlawfully and instead of deleting the data, you only want to restrict the processing thereof,
- if we no longer require the data, you can choose to restrict the processing of the data instead of deleting it if you still require the data for the purpose of exercising, defending or asserting legal claims or
- you have objected to processing in accordance with Art. 21 of the GDPR and want processing to be restricted while the objection is being verified.
If processing has been restricted, apart from merely storing your data, we may only process your data for the purpose of defending, asserting or exercising legal claims, protecting natural persons or legal entities or for reasons of substantial public interest with your express consent.
Right to data portability
You have the right to ask us to transfer data that we process automatically based on your consent or in the performance of a contract to you or to a third party in a common machine-readable format. If you request the direct transmission of the data to another responsible party, this will only be carried out if it is technically feasible to do so.
Withdrawal of consent
Right to complain to the supervisory authority
You have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority at any time if you believe that we have violated legal provisions during the processing of your personal data.
The data protection supervisory authority that is responsible will depend on the location of your usual place of residence, your place of work, the location of the alleged violation or the location of the responsible party. The responsible supervisory authority for our registered office is:
The Hessian Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information
