"Personal data" means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person - hereinafter also referred to as "person concerned". An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person. Personal data is also referred to below as "data" for short.

Some data processing transactions are only carried out subject to your express consent. You can revoke your consent at any time effective for the future. To do so, all you are required to do is send us an informal notification via e-mail. This shall be without prejudice to the lawfulness of any data collection that occurred prior to your revocation.

After receipt of your revocation by the responsible body, the relevant processing of your data will be stopped immediately. If the data processing was necessary for the provision of our websites or for your use of our online services, this may result in restrictions in the further use of the websites or online services concerned or even in their unavailability.

Right to object to the collection of data in special cases; right to object to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

In the event that data are processed on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. e or f GDPR, you have the right as a person concerned to object at any time to the processing of your personal data based on grounds arising from your unique situation. This also applies to any profiling based on these provisions. To determine the legal basis, on which any processing of data is based, please consult this Data Protection Declaration. If you log an objection, we will no longer process your affected personal data, unless we are in a position to present compelling protection worthy grounds for the processing of your data, that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or if the purpose of the processing is the claiming, exercising or defence of legal entitlements (objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR).

If your personal data is being processed in order to engage in direct advertising, you have the right to at any time object to the processing of your affected personal data for the purposes of such advertising. This also applies to profiling to the extent that it is affiliated with such direct advertising. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for direct advertising purposes (objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 2 GDPR).

Right to log a complaint with the competent supervisory agency

In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects are entitled to log a complaint with a supervisory agency, in particular in the member state where they usually maintain their domicile, place of work or at the place where the alleged violation occurred. The right to log a complaint is in effect regardless of any other administrative or court proceedings available as legal recourses.

Right to data portability

You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we automatically process on the basis of your consent or in order to fulfil a contract be handed over to you or a third party in a commonly used, machine readable format. If you should demand the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will be done only if it is technically feasible.

SSL and/or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as purchase orders or inquiries you submit to us as the website operator, our websites and online services use either an SSL or a TLS encryption program. You can recognise an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser switches from "http://" to "https://" and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line. When the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information about, blockage, rectification and eradication of data

Within the scope of the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right as a person concerned to demand at any time information about your archived personal data, their source and recipients as well as the purpose of the processing of your data.

Right to demand processing restrictions

As a person concerned, you have the right to demand the imposition of restrictions as far as the processing of your personal data is concerned. The right to demand restriction of processing applies in the following cases:

  • In the event that you should dispute the correctness of your data archived by us, we will usually need some time to verify this claim. During the time that this investigation is ongoing, you have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data was/is conducted in an unlawful manner, you have the option to demand the restriction of the processing of your data in lieu of demanding the eradication of this data.
  • If we do not need your personal data any longer and you need it to exercise, defend or claim legal entitlements, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of its eradication.
  • If you have raised an objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be weighed against each other. As long as it has not been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand a restriction of the processing of your personal data.
  • If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data – with the exception of their archiving – may be processed only subject to your consent or to claim, exercise or defend legal entitlements or to protect the rights of other natural persons or legal entities or for important public interest reasons cited by the European Union or a member state of the EU.

7. Data processing through our Facebook-page

We operate a so-called fan page (hereinafter “Facebook page”) on the social media network Facebook of Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Irland, on which we inform about news and events from our company.

Data processing on Facebook page and legal basis therefor

So-called page insights are collected solely through your visit to our Facebook page. These page insights are data collected in connection with a visit to our Facebook Page or an interaction on or with our Page that tells us how users interact with our Facebook Page. This includes, for example, information about the end devices that visit our site (such as operating system, hardware and software versions, browser type) as well as information for example about how long a user views certain posts on our Facebook page. Page insights may be based on personal data. If you are also logged into your Facebook Account, Facebook may add the processed information to your account and treat it as personally identifiable information, depending on your account settings. For more information about the data processing through Facebook, please also have a look at

As the operator of the Facebook page, Facebook makes these page insights available to us in anonymous form. These page insights enable us to statistically evaluate the use of our Facebook page and thus enable us to control the marketing of our activities in a targeted manner. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of the relevant legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.

If you write to us via the contact-function on the Facebook page, we also process this data. This opportunity to interact with our (potential) clients and applicants also represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.

Agreement with Facebook

In 2018, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) ruled out that Facebook and the respective owner of the fan page are Joint Controller within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 7 GDPR. We therefore have concluded a Joint Controller Agreement with Facebook pursuant to Art. 26 GDPR (Page Controller Addendum) in which the data protection obligations arising from the operation of the fan page are divided between us as the fan page operator and Facebook. In this agreement Facebook has taken over a large part of the data protection obligations, such as the fulfillment of the rights of the data subject according to Art. 12 ff. GDPR, the obligation to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk and the communication and notification obligations in the event of a personal data breach.

Transfer of personal data

We do not pass on any personal data that we collect via the Facebook page to third parties. However, we can neither influence nor exclude that Facebook transmits the collected data to Facebook Inc. based in 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California, 94025, USA. Facebook Inc. is certified under the “EU US Privacy Shield” (can be found at Privacy Shield is an agreement between the European Union (EU) and the US to ensure compliance with European privacy standards in the United States.

Rights of the data subject

You can assert your data subject rights (see also section 4) with regard to data processing through our Facebook page directly against Facebook. However, you are also welcome to contact us. In this case, according to the Page Controller Addendum we are obliged to immediately forward your request to Facebook using a form available for this purpose.
