We wish to provide information about how we protect your data and the measures we take when you visit our website, so that you can be confident that all provisions for data protection have been complied with.

Protecting your data is one of our top priorities. Below you can find detailed information on how we collect data from you when you visit our web pages, how this data is processes and stored and when it will be deleted.
Reporting requirement on the collection of personal data
We do not as a rule collect personal data. This is not necessary when visiting our web pages. If you supply personal data, this is done on a purely voluntary basis. We will then protect your data, naturally!
Personal data is information such as your name, address, electronic contact details, date of birth, qualifications, etc. You supply this information when you send us an application, particularly here via the website and the contact information it requires you to supply. We also need this data in order to contact you. We only store or process the data which you have given us voluntarily.
The use of personal data
We use the data which you make available to us either to get in touch with you or we use it in other ways, to be able undertake business with you or answer your enquiries. In other words, we only use this data to carry out our work, when you wish to be involved and only to the degree that you wish to be involved.
Your data may also be used to enable you to have access to special information or offers, or to send you information on our services, advertising or interesting products. A further use of this data is as part of online surveys aimed at improving our products and services or for market research.
Data will only by used by us or our representatives and will not be disclosed to third parties, sold or used for anything other than our business purposes.
If you ask for your data to be deleted, this will be carried out immediately. In exceptional cases we may be legally obliged to store data. We will then delete the data as soon as this is permitted.
Use of personal data for special purposes
The personal data expressly given to us by you will be used and processed solely for the purpose specified by yourself. It will not be passed on or published without your agreement. The data will be immediately deleted upon your request.
Personal data is only passed on if this is a legal requirement or a court makes a legal claim for its surrender. Our employees who process your data have been trained in data protection and are especially obliged to adhere to data protection policy.
Automatically stored non-personal data
If you visit our web pages we store specific information for administrative and technical reasons. These data are: type and version of the browser used, date and time of access and the IP address.
These data are anonymised and only used for statistical purposes or to improve our website and online services. These anonymised data are stored – separately from personal data – on secure systems and cannot be traced to any individual persons. This means that your personal data remains protected at all times.
Use of Google Analytics with anonymisation function
On our website we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, henceforth referred to as "Google". Google Analytics uses what are known as cookies which are text files stored on your computer to help analyse your use of the website.
The information generated by these cookies such as time, place and frequency of your website visit, including your IP address, are transferred to Google in the USA and stored there.
On our website we use Google Analytics with the suffix "_gat._anonymizeIp". Your IP address will therefore be abbreviated and thus anonymised by Google inside the member states of the European Union and in other states outside the European Economic Area which are party to the Agreement. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of our website, compiling reports on website activities for us and providing other services relating to website activity and Internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where this is required by law or insofar as third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Google states that it will never associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the installation of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; however please note that if you do so you may not be able to use the full functionality of our website.
Right to information/withdrawal/objection (Art 13 DGPR)
Please let us know if you wish information about your data, in particular about the period of storage, the disclosure rights, rectification or erasure, limitation on processing or objection to processing or data transfer.
You have the right to withdraw any given consent at any time or to lodge a complaint to a regulatory authority. We will also inform you whether the provision of personal data is legally or contractually required or whether there is an obligation to provide such data and what consequences a failure to do so would have.
Actual security measures
Our businesses are geared to and prepared for data protection. We have ensured that data is protected through technical and organisational measures. Your personal data are therefore protected against theft or loss, destruction, manipulation or unauthorised use.
Our employees and the service companies who operate for us are contractually expressly required to comply with the statutory provisions on data protection. We encrypt your personal data before it is transferred. Your data cannot therefore be viewed. We constantly strive to improve our data protection measures.
