Our website uses so called cookies. These are small harmless text files. They are stored on your end device with the help of the browser in order to make our offer user-friendly. In order to recognise your browser on your next visit, some cookies remain stored on your terminal device until they are deleted.
If you do not want cookies to be used automatically, you can set up your browser so that it informs you when cookies are set and you only allow them in individual cases. We would like to point out that the functionality of our website may be limited if you deactivate cookies.
With every call-up to our website, general data and information are collected in order to be able to guarantee that our website is running correctly, to optimise it and to ensure its functionality. For you, it is important to know that no personal data is involved and that no specific person can be determined. This can be the following data: The browser type and version used, the operating system, the website accessed from.
In order to optimise our website and design it in line with requirements, we have concluded a contract with econda GmbH for web analysis. With the help of solutions and technologies, econda GmbH collects and stores anonymous data. It uses this data to create user profiles that, like the IP addresses, are pseudonymous. The user profiles are not merged with data of the pseudonym without express consent. The use of pseudonymized data is based on the provisions of § 15 paragraph 3 German Telecommunication Law. In order to recognise your internet browser, cookies are also used here.
If you do not wish data to be collected and stored, you can object here at any time for the future. The objection only applies to the specific device and the web browser on which it was set. Please repeat the process on all devices if necessary. As soon as you delete the opt-out cookie, queries will be sent to econda again
You are welcome to inform yourself about the data protection guidelines of econda GmbH, Zimmerstr. at https://www.econda.de/datenschutzhinweise/. 76137 Karlsruhe, Germany.
In addition to the econda analysis software, we use Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a web analysis service of Google Inc.
This tool generates user-related information of our online offer via cookies and transmits the data to a Google server in the USA. On our behalf, Google evaluates the use of our online presence in order to compile reports on the activities within this online presence and to provide us with further services related to the use of this online presence and the internet. In doing so, pseudonymous user profiles can be created from the processed data.
We only use Google Analytics with IP anonymisation activated. This means that the IP addresses of the users are shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by the user's browser will not be merged with other data from Google.

We use "Google Tag Manager" on our website, a service of Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, Barrow St, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter referred to as "Google"). With the Google Tag Manager we - as marketer - can manage website tags via an interface. However, the Tag Manager itself, which deploys the tags, works without cookies and does not collect any personal data. The Google Tag Manager only serves for the triggering of other tags, which in some circumstances can record data. However, the Google Tag Manager does not use this data. If you have set or otherwise made a deactivation of cookies, this will be observed for all tracking tags that were used with the Google Tag Manager, so the tool does not change your cookie settings..
Your IP address is recorded when you visit our website, but is immediately pseudonymised by deleting the last four digits. This means that we can recognize from which country our website was accessed, but not from which device. This also means that no identifiable person can be determined.
We use appropriate encryption procedures (e.g. SSL) according to the current state of the art to ensure the security of your data.
We are also represented in social networks such as Facebook, Xing and Google. No data is currently collected via Facebook and Google.
Facebook, a social network, is a social meeting place operated on the internet, an online community. Users can communicate with each other via this platform and interact in virtual space. Facebook is also used to share opinions and experiences. We as a company use Facebook to provide company-related information to the community.
Facebook is operated by Facebook Inc, 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. The party responsible for processing personal data if a data subject lives outside the USA or Canada is Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.
Xing is an Internet-based social network that enables users to maintain existing business contacts and make new business contacts. To do this, users create a personal profile. Via Xing, we use a Talent Manager, where open vacancies are stored. Users who are open to offers or job changes will be contacted if they are suitable.

We use the "Facebook Pixel" cookie of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook"). With the help of this tool, we can track how our marketing measures operated on Facebook are received by users. With this tool, Facebook is able to determine you as a visitor to our online offer as a target group for the display of advertisements (so-called "Facebook Ads"). Accordingly, Facebook Pixel is used to display the Facebook Ads only to those Facebook users who have also shown interest in our online offer or have certain characteristics (e.g. interest in certain topics).
With the help of Facebook Pixel, we want to ensure that our Facebook Ads correspond to the potential interest of the users and do not have a harassing effect. The data collected is primarily used to create access statistics. This allows us to track how many users were redirected to our website via a Facebook ad (so-called "conversion").
The use of Facebook Pixel as well as the storage of "conversion cookies" is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). We have a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both our advertising offers and our advertising.
Although we declare legitimate interests in the use of Facebook Pixel and the storage of "conversion cookies", we ask for your consent in our cookie banner.
