5. Web Analysis

Usage of Matomo

Our website uses Matomo, if you have agreed to this in the Consent Manager. Matomo is an open source software tool for web analysis. Web analysis is the acquisition, collection and evaluation of data about the behaviour of visitors of internet pages. Among other things, a web analysis tool collects data about from which website a person concerned came to a website (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. Web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

The software is operated on the Matomo server, the log files are stored in the Matomo Cloud. The purpose of the Matomo component is the analysis of visitor flows on our website. The person responsible for processing uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of this website in order to compile online reports that show the activities on our website.

Matomo places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, we are able to analyze the use of our website. Whenever one of the individual pages of this website is called up, the Matomo component automatically causes the internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned to transmit data to our server for the purpose of online analysis. In the course of this technical process we obtain knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which serves us, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks.

By means of the cookie, personal information such as the access time, the location from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website is stored. Whenever you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transferred to our server. This personal data is secured by Matomo in the Matomo Cloud and is not passed on to third parties.

The legal basis for data processing is § 25 TTDSG in connection with article 6 paragraph 1 lit. f) DSGVO. You grant us the necessary consent by selecting the "Allow cookies" button on the cookie notification banner.

7. Own Services

Dealing with the applicant data

We offer you the possibility to apply with us (e.g. by email or post). In the following we will inform your about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected within the framework of the application process. We herewith ensure that collection, processing and use of your data takes place in compliance with the applicable data protection laws and all further legal provisions and that your data are treated strictly confidentially.

Scope and purpose of data collection

When you send us an application, we will process your personal data connected with it (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes within the framework of job interviews etc.), provided that this is necessary for a decision about the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis of this is § 26 BDSG (German Federal Data Protection Act) according to German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 Section 1 lit. b GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and - provided that you have given us your consent - Art. 6 Section 1 lit. a GDPR. The consent may be revoked at any time. Your personal data are passed on within our company exclusively to persons who are involved in the processing of your application. If your application is successful, the data submitted by you will be stored in our data processing systems on the basis of § 26 BDSG (German Federal Data Protection Act) and Art. 6 Section 1 lit. b GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) for the purpose of establishing employment.

Storage duration of the data

If we cannot provide a job offer to you, if you turn down an offer of employment or withdraw your application, we reserve the right to store with us data which you transferred to us on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 Section 1 lit f GDPR) up to 6 months after completion of the application process (rejection of or withdrawal of application). After that, the data will be deleted and the physical application documents destroyed. The storage serves especially for verification purposes in case of a legal dispute. If it is obvious that the data will be required after expiry of the 6-month period (e.g. due to an impending or pendent lawsuit), deletion of the data will not take place until the purpose for an ongoing storage no longer applies. Furthermore, longer storage may take place if you have given a corresponding consent (Art. 6 Section 1 lit. a GDPR) or if statutory storage obligations stand counter to deletion.

Inclusion in the pool of applicants

If we do not provide a job offer to you, there is the possibility, where appropriate, to include you in our pool of applicants. In case of including you in the pool, all documents and information from the application will be taken over into the pool of applicants in order to be able to contact you in case of suitable vacancies. Inclusion in the pool of applicants takes place exclusively on the basis of your explicit consent (Art. 6 Section 1 lit. a GDPR). Giving your consent is on a voluntary basis and is not related to the ongoing application process. The person concerned can revoke their consent at any time. In this case, the data will be irrevocably deleted from the pool of applicants if there are no legal retention reasons.


8. Liability for Contents and Links

The contents of our website were created with the utmost care. Nevertheless, we can make no guarantee for the accuracy, completeness, or updated nature of the contents. Pursuant to § 7 Section 1 TMG (German Telemedia Act) we are responsible as a service provider for our own information on these pages according to the general laws. Pursuant to §§ 8 to 10 of the TMG, we are not obliged as a service provider to monitor transmitted or stored external information or to look for indications of illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information in accordance with general laws remain unaffected. Any liability in this respect, however, shall only be incurred from the moment that knowledge of the specific breach of law is obtained. Should any corresponding violation of the law come to our knowledge we will remove this content immediately.

Our pages might include links to external web sites of third parties, on whose content we have no influence. We can therefore accept no responsibility for this third-party content. The individual provider or operator is always responsible for the content of the linked pages. The linked pages were checked for legal violations at the time of linking. No illegal content was apparent at the time of linking. Permanent control of linked content pages, however, is not reasonable without concrete indications of a violation. Should any corresponding violation of the law come to our knowledge we will remove these links immediately.


9. Information Disclosure

Disclosure of your personal data to any third party will take place only if:

• you have given your express consent pursuant to Art. 6 Section 1 Sentence 1 lit. a GDPR,
• disclosure is required to fulfil contractual duties pursuant to Art. 6 Section 1 Sentence 1 b GDPR;
• we are legally required to disclose the data in the sense of Art. 6 Section 1 Sentence 1 c GDPR;
• disclosure of the data is in the public interest in the sense of Art. 6 Section 1 e GDPR or;
• disclosure of the data pursuant to Art. 6 Section 1 Sentence 1 f GDPR is required to protect our or third-party legitimate interests provided that your interests do not prevail over the protection of your data.

In order to deal with your concern satisfactorily, it can be that we have to disclose your personal data to third-party recipients such as our suppliers, transport and logistic partners and our trade partners.
