If you wish to view our website, then we collect the following technical data needed in order to display our website to you and ensure stability and security (the legal basis is Article 6, Paragraph 1, Sentence 1, Letter f, of the GDPR):

•    IP address,
•    date and time of the query,

•    browser,
•    operating system and its user interface, and

(2) In addition to the abovementioned data, cookies are stored on your computer when you use our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard drive and assigned to the browser you are using. Through cookies, certain types of information flow to the entity that places them (in this case, us). Cookies cannot execute programs or transfer viruses to your computer. Their purpose is to make the Internet service overall more user-friendly and more effective.

(3) Use of cookies:

a) This website uses the following types of cookies, whose scope and principle of operation is explained below:

•    transient cookies (see b),
•    persistent cookies (see c).

b) Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. Among them, in particular, are the session cookies. Session cookies store what is known as a session ID, with which different queries from your browser can be assigned to the joint session, enabling your computer to be recognized when you return to our website. This is done, for example, in order to prevent you from needing to reregister every time you change pages. Session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.

c) Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified time, which can vary depending on the cookie. How long a cookie remains on your device depends on the duration or expiration date of the respective cookie, and on your browser’s settings. You can delete the cookies in your browser’s security settings at any time.

By means of these cookies, the website recalls your information and settings the next time you visit it. This makes it faster and easier for you to access the website, because you do not need to reset the desired language, for example.

d) You can configure your browser settings as you wish and, for example, refuse to accept third-party cookies or any cookies at all. In this case, you might not be able to use all of this website’s functions.

 

§ 4 Additional functions and offerings of our website

To do this, you will generally need to provide other personal data, which we will use in order to provide the respective service and to which the abovementioned data processing principles will apply.

§5 Recipients or categories of recipients

(1) As a part of our activities and services, we may need to share the personal data we have stored about you with natural persons, legal persons, or other entities. If relevant, we conclude order processing contracts with our service providers such that they are permitted to process your personal data solely in a manner that accords with our explicit instructions.

Your data will automatically be deleted after one year at the latest, unless you have been hired by that time or an agreement to store your data beyond that time has been reached.

If you file such an objection, we ask you to tell us the reason why we should no longer process your personal data in the manner implemented by us. In the event of a reasonable objection, we will examine the situation and either stop or adapt the data processing, or we will notify you of our compelling, protection-worthy reasons for continuing with the data processing.

Your usage data are logged for this purpose, including: your IP address, the pages you have accessed (click path), and conversions (e.g., newsletter registrations or downloads, clicks, visit duration, region, or technical information about your browser). Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files stored on your computer that enable the analysis of your usage of the website. The information generated by the cookie through your visit to the website is usually transferred to a Google server in the U.S. and stored there.

§ 22 Online presence on social media sites and portals

(1) We maintain an online presence on the social networks and platforms stated below (e.g., employer evaluation portals). These social networks are operated solely by the respective provider. This online presence serves to facilitate communication with customers, potential customers, and users, and serves advertising and market research purposes. If you contact us through our social media channels, then we will process the data that you make available to us, as well as the data that are required in order to process the query (Article 6, Paragraph 1, Letter b, of the GDPR). The processing of further data is performed in accordance with Article 6, Paragraph 1, Letter f, of the GDPR based on a legitimate interest in direct communication with users and in the optimization of the design of our online presence. If you grant your consent to the operators of the respective social media platforms (e.g., via an opt-in checkbox), then processing will be performed in accordance with Article 6, Paragraph 1, Letter a, of the GDPR. At any time, you can withdraw your consent from the provider of the respective platform with future effect. 

(2) When you open our social media pages, your user data will be recorded and provided to us by the provider. The exact types of data differ from provider to provider but usually encompass the following information:

- Followers: Number of followers and stored profiles; information about increases and progress over a defined period.

- Reach: Number of persons who see a specific post; number of interactions for a post. Based on this information, it can be determined which content is more popular in the community than other content.

- Ad performance: How many people were reached by a post or a paid ad, and how many have interacted with it?

- Demographics: Average age of the visitor, as well as gender, place of residence, language.

(3) Because our social media channels are operated by the providers of the respective social networks, these providers may potentially use your personal data. We have no influence over this usage. This often involves the recording of your IP address, the creation of statistical evaluations, and the processing of further information that is stored in the form of cookies. These data are also often used to show you interest-related advertisements both on and outside of the platform. As a profile operator, we have no influence on advertisement generation or appearance and can neither deactivate this function nor prevent this processing of data.

(4) The assertion of rights of data subjects and the request of information can most effectively be made directly with the providers of the platforms because they alone have access to your data and can take immediate action. If our cooperation is required for this, then we will support you as needed in enforcing your rights as a data subject.  

(5) The providers of the networks we use are listed below. If data processing is performed outside of the EU, we have taken the necessary measures to maintain the level of data protection (generally through conclusion of the EU standard data protection clauses).
