Communication by E-mail
Insofar as you write us an email, we process your data according to the content and purpose of the message. As a rule, processing is carried out on the basis of pre-contractual measures or in the context of the implementation of a contractual relationship on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR. It is a legitimate interest to process your request quickly and efficiently.
Please note that we store all incoming e-mails in accordance with the principles of proper accounting for a period of ten years, starting with the first day of the following year in which the message was received. Thus, to the extent that you request us to delete the data, we will henceforth restrict your data for processing and store it only for the purpose of complying with retention periods in our legitimate interest.

We do not record the content of conversations, but we may make notes for processing your inquiry. We store these until the purpose of the data processing has been achieved and we no longer have any legitimate interests in the processing. If necessary, contents of the conversation are stored anonymously for statistical purposes. Of course, you can request deletion at any time.
10. Information for job applicants
We offer you the opportunity to apply for a job with us (e.g. by e-mail, by post or via an online application form). In the following, we inform you about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected during the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing and use of your data will be carried out in accordance with applicable data protection law and all other statutory provisions and that your data will be treated in strict confidence.
Scope and purpose of data collection
If you send us an application, we will process your associated personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes taken during interviews, etc.) insofar as this is necessary to decide on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is Section 26 BDSG under German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Article 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR (general contract initiation) and – if you have given your consent – Article 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. The consent can be revoked at any time. Your personal data will only be passed on within our company to persons involved in processing your application.
If the application is successful, the data you submitted will be stored in our data processing systems on the basis of Section 26 of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and Article 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship.
Retention period of the data

The data will then be deleted and the physical application documents destroyed. This storage serves in particular as evidence in the event of a legal dispute. If it is apparent that the data will be required after the 4-month period has expired (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), the data will not be deleted until the purpose for continued storage no longer applies.
Longer storage may also take place if you have given your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR) or if legal storage obligations prevent deletion.

Conclusion of a data processing agreement
We have concluded an order processing contract with the Microsoft Teams provider and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Microsoft Teams.
Scope of data processing
When you communicate with us via video or audio conference over the Internet, your personal data is collected and processed by us and Microsoft.
In doing so, Microsoft Teams collects any data that you provide/enter to use the tools (email address and/or your phone number). Furthermore, Microsoft Teams processes the duration of the conference, start and end (time) of participation in the conference, number of participants and other „contextual information” related to the communication process (metadata).
Furthermore, Microsoft Teams processes all technical data that is required to handle the online communication. This includes, in particular, IP addresses, MAC addresses, device IDs, device type, operating system type and version, client version, camera type, microphone or speaker, and the type of connection.
If content is exchanged, uploaded or otherwise made available within Microsoft Teams, it will also be stored on Microsoft Teams servers. Such content includes, but is not limited to, cloud recordings, chat/instant messages, voicemails uploaded photos and videos, files, whiteboards, and other information shared while using the Service.
Purpose and legal basis
Microsoft Teams is used to communicate with prospective or existing contractual partners or to offer certain services to our customers (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR). Furthermore, the use of the tools serves the general simplification and acceleration of communication with us or our company (legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). In the context of initiating the implementation of employment relationships, the use is supplementary based on §26 BDSG in addition to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. Insofar as consent (Art. 6 para. 1lit. a GDPR) has been requested, the tools in question are used on the basis of this consent; consent can be revoked at any time with effect for the future.
The data collected directly by us via the video and conference tools will be deleted from our systems as soon as you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies. Stored cookies remain on your terminal device until you delete them. Mandatory legal retention periods remain unaffected.
We have no influence on the storage period of your data, which is stored by the operators of the conference tools for their own purposes. For details, please contact the operators of the conference tools directly.
14. Own Social Media Appearances
Data processing by social networks
We maintain publicly accessible profiles on social networks. The social networks used by us in detail can be found below. Social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, etc. can generally analyse your user behaviour comprehensively when you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. like buttons or advertising banners). By visiting our social media presences, numerous data protection-relevant processing operations are triggered.
If you are logged into your social media account and visit our social media presence, the operator of the social media portal can assign this visit to your user account. However, your personal data may also be collected under certain circumstances if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portal. In this case, this data collection takes place, for example, via cookies that are stored on your terminal device or by recording your IP address.
With the help of the data collected in this way, the operators of the social media portals can create user profiles in which your preferences and interests are stored. In this way, you can be shown interest-based advertising inside and outside the respective social media presence. If you have an account with the respective social network, the interest-based advertising can be displayed on all devices on which you are or were logged in.
Our social media presences are intended to ensure the most comprehensive presence possible on the Internet and to enable effective user information and communication with users. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The analysis processes initiated by the social networks may be based on deviating legal bases, which are to be stated by the operators of the social networks (e.g. consent within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR).
Person responsible and assertion of rights
If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g. Facebook), we are jointly responsible with the operator of the social media platform for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. In principle, you can assert your rights (information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability and complaint) both vis-à-vis us and vis-à-vis the operator of the respective social media portal (e.g. vis-à-vis Facebook).
Please note that despite the joint responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have full influence on the data processing operations of the social media portals. Our options are largely determined by the corporate policy of the respective provider.
Social networks in detail
We maintain profiles on the following social networks.
We have a profile on LinkedIn. The provider is LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland. LinkedIn uses advertising cookies.
If you would like to disable LinkedIn advertising cookies, please use the following link: https://www.linkedin.com/psettings/guest-controls/retargeting-opt-out.
Data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. Details can be found here: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/l/dpa and https://www.linkedin.com/legal/l/eu- sccs.
The following supplementary information applies to all business contacts, such as customers, suppliers, partners and comparable.
Purpose and legal basis
We process personal data of our business contacts, which we collect in the context of the initiation and implementation of contractual relationships. The legal basis is primarily Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR.
As a rule, we process the following categories of data:
Name, first name
Phone and fax data
Professional function and/or position
Company bank details / other payment details
Data on the history of the business relationship
Customer and supplier history
In the course of the business initiation phase and during the business relationship, in particular through personal, telephone or written contacts, initiated by you or by one of our employees, further personal data is generated, e.g. information on contact channel, date, occasion and result; (electronic) copies of correspondence as well as possible information on participation in direct marketing measures.
Changes of purpose
Data processing for other purposes is only considered if the legal requirements necessary in this respect pursuant to Art. 6 para. 4 GDPR exist. We will, of course, comply with any information obligations pursuant to Art. 13 para. 3 GDPR and Art. 14 para. 4 GDPR in this case.
Legal bases for the processing of personal data
Based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR)
We process personal data for one or more specific purposes if you have given us consent to do so. If personal data is processed on the basis of your consent, you have the right to revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future.
Data processing for the fulfillment of contracts (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR)
We process personal data for the performance of contracts. The performance of contracts includes, for example, the conclusion, execution and reversal of a contract. In addition, we process personal data that is necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures, such as for the initiation of a contract, and is done at your request.
Data processing due to a legal obligation (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR)
Like any company, we have to comply with retention obligations and other documentation requirements, this may include documents containing personal information. Insofar as we process data for these purposes, the processing is based on a legal obligation. Further legal bases result from the requirements of commercial law and tax law.
Data processing on the basis of a balance of interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR)
If we process data on the basis of a balance of interests, you as the data subject have the right to object to the processing of personal data, taking into account the requirements of Art. 21 GDPR. As far as the specific purpose allows, we process your data pseudonymized or anonymized.
General information on deletion periods for personal data
Principle of purpose limitation and compliance with statutory retention periods
We process data as long as this is necessary for the respective purpose. To the extent necessary, we process your personal data for the duration of our business relationship, which also includes the initiation and execution of a contract.
In addition, like any company, we are obliged to comply with the statutory retention periods, for example the periods arising from commercial and tax law. Insofar as statutory retention obligations exist, the personal data in question will be stored for the duration of the retention obligation. The storage period is also governed by the statutory limitation periods, which are defined, for example, in §§ 195 et seq. of the German Civil Code (BGB) are generally three years, but in certain cases can be up to thirty years. After the retention period has expired, a check is made to determine whether there is a further need for processing. If there is no longer a need, the data is deleted.
If you enter into a legal transaction with us (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR), we store your data for ten years until the expiry of the requirements under commercial and tax law. After this period, we will check whether we can delete the data and, if so, we will forward it for deletion.
E-mails and business letters
We archive all our e-mail traffic for ten years. If you write us an e-mail, your data and the entire e-mail content are stored accordingly for 10 years. Most e-mails count as business letters; in addition, e-mails may contain information relevant under tax law. In our opinion, the effort to check each individual e-mail in this respect is not in proportion to the benefit and the interests of the sender worthy of protection. However, you can of course request deletion at any time and we will carry out a case-by-case check and inform you of the result. This may lead to deletion or restriction of processing, depending on the content of the correspondence.
Revocation of your consent
Insofar as we process your data on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR), we will delete it after your revocation. Unless there are legitimate interests against a complete deletion. For example, we generally retain declarations of consent for up to three years after receipt of your revocation in the legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). We retain consent exclusively under restriction of processing in order to be able to defend ourselves in the event of a dispute.
Categories of recipients of personal data
External service providers may be processors with whom one of the joint controllers has concluded a contract within the meaning of Article 28 GDPR. Before commissioning a processor, the controllers check whether the processor can demonstrate a sufficient level of data protection. For example, in the IT area we use service providers for maintenance, support and care of systems or hosting of applications.
Currently, we use the following processors in particular:
Other external service providers may be providers of third-party specialist services for which the processing of personal data is not an essential part of the service. Examples include banks, shipping services, tax consultants, auditors, railroad, airline and car rental companies, hotels, further education institutions or telecommunications providers.
Authorities, agencies, public bodies and associations
Public authorities and agencies, such as the tax office, may be recipients within the scope of their duties, insofar as we are obligated or authorized to transmit data. In addition, social insurance institutions and the employers’ liability insurance association are recipients of personal data.
Other parties, insofar as you have given us your consent
If you have given us explicit consent, we will also pass on your data to other bodies. However, this will be done within the limits of your verifiable consent.
Insofar as there is a necessity to carry out orders, personal data, for example from contact persons of our customers or suppliers, may be passed on to affiliated companies. We have entered into order processing agreements with all affiliated companies and, where required, based on EU standard contractual clauses with appropriate safeguards.
