Retention of Access Information
You can visit our website without providing information about yourself. The only access information we automatically retain is data we store in server log files each time our homepage is accessed. When you access our website, the following data will be collected and stored:
- IP address
- Browser type and version
- Date and time of the request
- Name of the requested file
- Name of the file from which the file was requested
- Data volume transmitted and access status
- Description of the web browser and operating system used
- Name of your Internet Service Provider
We collect this information only to ensure smooth and uninterrupted operation of the website and for improving our service. Any analysis or evaluation will be performed for statistical purposes only and will not allow us to identify you as a person. The IP address is temporarily stored to allow us to deliver the website content to your device. The legal basis for the temporary retention of access information is provided by Article 6, Paragraph 1, Subparagraph f of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This information is evaluated only to ensure continued, smooth operation of the website and to improve our website content as well as for transmission to law-enforcement authorities in the event of a cyber attack. It does not allow us to identify you as a person. The anonymous server log file data will be stored separately from any other personal data you provide. The above-mentioned purposes also constitute our legitimate interest in processing the data according to Article 6, Paragraph 1, Subparagraph f of the GDPR. By evaluating the anonymously collected data and information statistically, we strive to improve our data protection and data security measures.
Our website uses so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files which are placed on the user’s computer by the Internet browser. When a user accesses a website, a cookie may be stored on the user’s operating system. The cookie contains a specific character string which uniquely identifies the browser when the website is accessed again.
Analysis cookies are used to improve the quality of our website and its content. They tell us how you use the website and enable us to optimize our service on a continuous basis. The above-mentioned purposes also constitute our legitimate interest in processing the data according to Article 6, Paragraph 1, Subparagraph f of the GDPR. If the user has given his or her corresponding consent, the legal basis for processing personal data by using cookies for analyzing purposes is provided by Article 6, Paragraph 1, Subparagraph f of the GDPR.
You as the user have full control over the way cookies are used. You can deactivate or limit the transmission of cookies by changing your Internet browser settings. Cookies that have been stored can be deleted at any time. Please be advised, however, that the deactivation of cookies for our website may result in limited functionality.
For security reasons and in order to protect the transmission of confidential content, e.g. the requests you send to us as website provider, we use SSL encryption. When a connection is encrypted the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and displays the padlock symbol.
By activating SSL encryption we ensure that the data you send us cannot be read by third parties.
We have taken appropriate technical and organizational safety measures to protect your data against unauthorized access, misuse, unauthorized disclosure and modification as well as loss and destruction. Your personal data will be stored and processed within the European Union only. We will give access to personal data only to those of our employees who need the data for operating our websites and providing the requested services and information.
However, you should also make sure that you take preventive steps for protecting your personal data, including but not limited to keeping your login information confidential and monitoring and controlling access to your computer.
Job Application Portal
We are always on the lookout for qualified personnel and update our job postings on a continuous basis. When you visit our website, you can use our Job Application Portal to send us your application for an advertised position directly. The collection and processing of your personal data in connection with the application process is subject to additional data protection regulations which we will inform you of before you submit your application documents and which you will have to accept.
Right of Information, Erasure, Blocking, Withdrawal
If your personal data is processed, you are a data subject as defined by the GDPR and you are entitled to certain data subject rights vis-à-vis the controller (website operator). At any time, you are entitled to request information free-of-charge about the data collected about you, their source and recipients as well as the purpose and intended length of storage, and to have said data rectified, blocked, or deleted subject to any applicable statutory regulations. Furthermore, you are entitled to receive information on whether personal data were transmitted to a third country or an international organization. If this is the case, you also have the right to receive information on the appropriate safeguards in connection with the transmission. In these cases sending an email with the specific information, rectification, erasure or blocking request to email@example.com will suffice.
You are entitled to withdraw at any time any consent you have given regarding the use of your personal data without giving reasons and with future effect by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Withdrawing consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing already performed and consented to until such withdrawal.
Right of Withdrawal
If data processing is permissible even without the consent of the data subject, you can object to such processing by citing grounds relating to your particular situation according to Article 21 of the GDPR. Withdrawing consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing already performed and consented to until such withdrawal.
Complaints to the Supervisory Authorities about Breaches of Data Protection Regulations
If you assume that data protection regulations were violated and your rights infringed during the collection, processing or use of your personal data, you can contact the competent data protection authority. It will investigate the complaint and inform you of the result.
