The IP address conveyed by Google Analytics from your browser will not be merged with other data from Google.

However, we would like to point out that in this case not all the functions of the website may be available in their full scope. You can additionally prevent the recording of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) being sent to Google as well as the processing of said data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Demographic characteristics at Google Analytics
This website uses the “demographic characteristics feature” of Google Analytics. As a result reports can be compiled which provide information about the age, sex and interests of the visitors to our website. This data originates from interest-related marketing by Google as well as visitor data from third-party suppliers. This data cannot be allocated to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time through the advertisement setting in your Google account or generally prohibit Google Analytics from recording your data as displayed under “Objection to data recording” above.

7. Own services
Handling applicant data
We offer you the option of applying for a job with us (e.g. by email, post or through an online application form). Below you can find information about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected as part of the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing and use of your data take place in compliance with the applicable data privacy law and all additional statutory provisions and that your data will be treated with the strictest confidentiality.
Scope and purpose of the data collection
If you send us an application, we process your personal data connected with it (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes as part of job interviews etc.), in so far as this is necessary to decide on the creation of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is section 26 Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) new, subject to German law (initiating an employment relationship), section 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR (general contract negotiations) and – if you have given your consent – Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. Consent can be revoked at any time. Your personal data will only be passed on to persons in our company who are involved in processing your application.
If your application is successful, the data you have submitted will be stored in our data processing system with an end to executing the employment relationship on the basis of section 26 Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG new) and section 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR.
Storage period of the data
If we are unable to offer you a job, you reject a job offer or you withdraw your application, we reserve the right to store your data you have transferred on the basis of our justified interest (section 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) up to 6 months from the end of the application procedure (rejection or withdrawal of the application). Subsequently, the data will be erased and the physical application documents will be destroyed. The storage in particular serves to be able to furnish proof in the case of a judicial dispute. In so far as it is evident that the data will still be required after the expiry of the 6 month deadline (e.g. on the basis of an imminent or pending legal dispute), an erasure only takes place once the purpose for the continued storage no longer exists.
The storage period can additionally be longer, if you have given a corresponding consent (section 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR) or if statutory storage obligations are in conflict with the erasure.
