Processing of Personal Data

The use of our website is normally possible without providing personal information. When personal data (for example name, address, or e-mail address) is compiled on our sites it always occurs, where possible, on a voluntary basis. This data will not be disclosed to third parties without your explicit consent. Please note that data transfers over the Internet (for example, when communicating via e-mail) may result in security vulnerabilities. It is not possible to totally protect data from access by third parties. If you contact us through a contact address provided on this website, you agree that we may process your personal data in order to contact you and respond to your request.

We do not disclose or transfer your personal data to third parties. This does not apply to data transfers following a request by any authorized state agencies or transfers to law enforcement authorities in the event of an abuse of the services offered.

Unsolicited Applications via Contact Details on Our Website

The processing of your data for another purpose (i.e. searching for, selecting and recruiting personnel) will only take place after we include you in our database. If you are not included in our database, your contact information will be deleted from our system. We will inform you about this via e-mail at the time.


Server Log Files

We automatically collect and save information in log files that are automatically sent to us by your browser. These are browser type and version, operating system, referring URL, and the time of the server request. This data cannot be assigned to specific persons. This data will not be merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to subsequently examine this data if we become aware of specific indications of illegal use.

Use of Cookies

Our website uses cookies. These are small text files that your web browser stores on your device. Cookies help us make our service more user-friendly, effective, and secure.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. These are automatically deleted after your visit. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Other cookies remain on your device until you delete them yourself. These cookies help us recognize you when you return to our website.

With modern web browsers you can monitor, restrict, or prevent the storage of cookies. Many web browsers can be configured to automatically delete cookies when closing the program. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of our website.

Cookies, which are necessary to carry out electronic communication processes or to provide certain functions desired by you (e.g., the shopping cart), are stored in accordance with Germany’s General Data Protection Regulation, art. 6, §1(f). As operators of this website, we have a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies in order to provide our services in a technically flawless and smooth manner. If other cookies are stored (e.g., for analysis processes), they will be treated separately in this privacy policy.

Integrated Services

It is important for us to develop and optimize our websites as much as possible, so as to make them attractive for our visitors. To provide additional functions, we integrate the following external services:


Google Maps

We incorporate content from Google Maps on our websites to help you find the exact location of our business. This automatically establishes a connection from your browser to the Google Maps server, which also transmits your IP address. If you are logged in to Google with an existing user account while visiting our websites, Google may also be able to assign the visit of our websites to your user behaviour. We have no influence on this procedure and do not receive any information from Google about the content transmitted.

The provider is Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Data Security

We use technical and organizational security measures to protect accrued or collected personal data, in particular against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction, or against attacks from unauthorized persons. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with the latest technological developments.

The transfer of your personal data is encrypted using SSL technology (https) to prevent access by unauthorized third parties.

E-Mail Communication

We cannot guarantee complete data security when communicating by e-mail, so we recommend that you send us any highly confidential information by post.


Marketing E-Mails

The use of the contact information provided as part of the obligatory legal notice for the sending of unsolicited marketing and other information materials is not permitted. The website operators expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of receiving unsolicited marketing information, for example spam e-mails.
