We process your data exclusively in accordance with legal regulations (GDPR, DPA 2018, TKG 2021). Detailed information on data privacy can be found in our data protection statement listed below this text.

Your data is collected in part by you providing it to us. This can include data you enter into a contact form, for example. Other data is automatically collected by our IT systems when you visit the website. This primarily consists of technical data (e.g., internet browser, operating system, or the time of page access). This data is collected automatically as soon as you enter our website.
For what purposes do we use your data?
Some of the data is collected to ensure the proper functioning of the website. Other data can be used to analyze your user behavior.
What rights do you have to your data?
You have the right to receive free information about the origin, recipient, and purpose of your stored personal data at any time. You also have the right to request the correction, blocking, or deletion of this data. For this and other questions regarding data protection, you can contact us at any time using the contact information provided in the imprint. Furthermore, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.
Analytic tools and tools from third party providers
When you visit our website, your surfing behavior can be statistically evaluated. This is mainly done with cookies and so-called analysis programs. The analysis of your surfing behavior is usually anonymous; your surfing behavior cannot be traced back to you. You can object to this analysis or prevent it by not using certain tools.
Detailed information can be found in the following data protection statement. You can object to this analysis. We will inform you about your objection options in this data protection statement.
This website is hosted by an external service provider. The personal data collected on this website is stored on the host's servers. This may include IP addresses, contact requests, meta and communication data, contact details, names, website access, and other data generated by a website. The use of the host is for the purpose of fulfilling the contract with our potential and existing customers (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR) and in the interest of a secure, fast, and efficient provision of our online offering by a professional provider (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR). Our host will only process your data to the extent necessary to fulfill its performance obligations and will follow our instructions regarding this data.
3. GENERAL INFORMATION AND MANDATORY INFORMATION
The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration (GDPR, DPA 2018, TKG 2021). When you use this website, various personal data is collected. Personal data is data that can be used to personally identify you. This data protection declaration explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done. We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g., when communicating by e-mail) may have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
Unless a specific storage period is specified in this data protection declaration, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for processing the data no longer applies. If you make a legitimate request for deletion or revoke your consent to data processing, your data will be deleted, provided we have no other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g., tax or commercial retention periods).
NOTICE REGARDING DATA TRANSFER TO THE USA AND OTHER THIRD COUNTRIES
We use tools from companies based in the USA or other data protectionally unsafe third countries. When these tools are active, your personal data can be transferred to and processed in these third countries. We would like to point out that in these countries, a level of data protection comparable to that in the EU cannot be guaranteed. For example, US companies are obligated to disclose personal data to security authorities without you being able to take legal action against this. It is therefore not possible to exclude the possibility that US authorities (e.g., intelligence agencies) may process, evaluate, and permanently store your data located on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.
WITHDRAWAL OF YOUR CONSENT TO DATA PROCESSING
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can withdraw consent you have already given at any time. The legality of data processing carried out before the withdrawal remains unaffected by the withdrawal.
RIGHT TO OBJECT TO DATA COLLECTION IN SPECIAL CASES AND TO DIRECT ADVERTISING (ART. 21 GDPR)
If data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f GDPR, you have the right at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to object to the processing of your personal data; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which processing is based can be found in this data protection declaration. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights, and freedoms or the processing serves to assert, exercise, or defend legal claims (objection pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR).
If your personal data is processed to engage in direct advertising, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct advertising. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for the purpose of direct advertising (objection pursuant to Art. 21 para. 2 GDPR).
RIGHT TO COMPLAIN TO THE COMPETENT SUPERVISORY AUTHORITY
In the event of breaches of data protection law, the data subject has the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.
In Austria, this is the Austrian Data Protection Authority, Barichgasse 40-42, 1030 Vienna, Tel +43 1 52 152-0, E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
In Germany, the competent supervisory authority for data protection matters is the State Commissioner for Data Protection of the federal state in which our company is located.
Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the data that we process automatically based on your consent or in fulfillment of a contract in a commonly used and machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.
SSL and TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as the website operator, this site uses SSL/TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of your browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. When SSL/TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blockage, deletion
Within the framework of applicable legal provisions, you have the right to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients, and the purpose of data processing at any time. You also have the right to correct, block, or delete this data, as well as other questions regarding personal data. You can contact us at any time using the contact information provided in the imprint.
RIGHT TO RESTRICTION OF PROCESSING
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time to exercise this right. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the review, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data was/is unlawful, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it for the exercise, defense, or assertion of legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
- If you have filed an objection pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR, an assessment must be made between your interests and ours. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests outweigh the other, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
- If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data – apart from its storage – may only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise, or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.
OBJECTION TO PROMOTIONAL EMAILS
We hereby object to the use of contact data published in the context of the imprint obligation for sending unsolicited advertising and information materials. The operators of these pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as spam emails.
4. DATA COLLECTION ON OUR WEBSITE
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Hostname of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
- IP address
These data will not be combined with data from other sources. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your data from the inquiry form, including the contact data you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We will not share this data without your consent. The processing of the data entered into the contact form is thus exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR).
You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal email to us is sufficient for this purpose. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation. The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage, or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g., after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions - especially retention periods - remain unaffected.
INQUIRY BY EMAIL, TELEPHONE, OR FAX
If you contact us by e-mail, telephone, or fax, your inquiry, including all personal data resulting from it (name, inquiry), will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We will not share this data without your consent. The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR if your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of inquiries directed to us (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR) if this has been requested. The data you send to us via contact requests will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage, or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g., after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions - especially statutory retention periods - remain unaffected.
5. Analysis tools and advertising
This website uses features of the Google Analytics web analytics service. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google Analytics allows the website operator to analyze the behavior of website visitors. The website operator receives various usage data, such as page views, time spent on the website, operating systems used, and the user's origin. This data may be aggregated by Google into a profile that is assigned to the respective user or their device. Furthermore, we can record your mouse and scroll movements and clicks using Google Analytics. Google Analytics also uses various modeling approaches to supplement the collected data and employs machine learning technologies in data analysis. Google Analytics uses technologies that enable the recognition of the user for the purpose of analyzing user behavior (e.g., cookies or device fingerprinting). The information collected by Google about the use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there. The use of this analysis tool is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize both its web offering and its advertising. If consent for the storage of cookies has been requested (e.g., consent to store cookies), the processing will be carried out exclusively based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; consent can be revoked at any time. Data transfer to the USA is based on the EU Commission's standard contractual clauses. Details can be found here: https://privacy.google.com/businesses/controllerterms/mccs/.
DEMOGRAPHIC FEATURES WITH GOOGLE ANALYTICS
This website uses the "demographic features" function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be generated that contain information about the age, gender, and interests of the site visitors. This data comes from Google's interest-based advertising and visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be associated with any specific individual. You can disable this feature at any time through the ad settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as described in the "Objection to data collection" section.
GOOGLE TAG MANAGER
We use Google Tag Manager. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google Tag Manager is a tool that allows us to integrate tracking or statistical tools and other technologies on our website. Google Tag Manager does not create user profiles, store cookies, or perform independent analyses. It is only used for managing and deploying the tools integrated through it. However, Google Tag Manager collects your IP address, which can also be transmitted to Google's parent company in the United States. The use of Google Tag Manager is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in quickly and easily integrating and managing various tools on its website. If consent has been requested, the processing will be based exclusively on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; consent can be revoked at any time.
Data stored by Google at the user and event level, linked to cookies, user identifiers (e.g., User ID), or advertising IDs (e.g., DoubleClick cookies, Android advertising ID), will be anonymized or deleted after 2 months. For details, please see the following link: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7667196?hl=de
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. As a result, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transmitted to the United States. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity, and provide other services related to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google.
DATA PROCESSING AGREEMENT
We have entered into a data processing agreement with Google and fully implement the strict requirements of data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
Data stored by Meta on the user and event level, linked to cookies, user identifiers (e.g., User ID), or advertising IDs (e.g., DoubleClick cookies, Android advertising ID), will be anonymized or deleted after 90 days.
LinkedIn Insight Tag
This website uses the Insight tag from LinkedIn. This service is provided by LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland.
Data processing by LinkedIn Insight tag
Demographic features on Google Analytics
This website uses the “demographic features” function of Google Analytics. This function can be used to create reports with information on the age, sex and interests of page visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertisements from Google and visitor data from third party providers. This data cannot be associated with a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time using the display settings in your Google account, or generally object to the collection of your data by Google Analytics as indicated in the point “Objection to data collection.”
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an e-mail address from you and information allowing us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and consent to receive the newsletter. Further data will be collected only on a voluntary basis. We only use this data to send the requested information, and do not transmit it to third parties. Data entered into the newsletter registration form is processed solely based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke the consent you have granted to save your data and your e-mail address and to use these to send the newsletter at any time, for instance by clicking the “Unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. The legality of data processing carried out up to the time the revocation was submitted shall remain unaffected by it. We will continue saving data obtained for the purpose of sending the newsletter until you unsubscribe. This data will be deleted after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data we have saved for other purposes (such as e-mail addresses for the member area) shall remain unaffected.
We use the analysis tool Pardot from salesforce.com Inc., Salesforce Tower, 415 Mission Street, 3rd Floor, San Francisco, CA 94105, Main: 1-800-NO-SOFTWARE, Fax: 415-901-7040, Sales: 1-800-NO-SOFTWARE on our website. Pardot is a software module for tracking and analysing the use of a website by website visitors. Pardot sets a maximum of two cookies. These are a "Visitor Cookie" and a "Pardot App Session Cookie". The "Visitor Cookie" generates an identification number that is used to recognize the browser of the website visitor. The identification number is a generated numerical code that has no meaning outside of Pardot Services. The "Pardot App Session Cookie" is only set when a customer logs into the Pardot App as a user. The Pardot cookies record your click path and uses it to create an individual user profile using a pseudonym. This allows us to analyse the use of our website and improve it regularly. The cookies are stored for a maximum of 360 days and the user data for a maximum of 5 years. The deletion of the profile data can be requested by the user at any time. The legal basis for the use of Pardot is your consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. a GDPR. Insofar as Pardot processes personal data, the processing is carried out exclusively on our behalf and according to our instructions. For this purpose, we have concluded a data processing agreement with Salesforce.com, Inc. to ensure compliance with the GDPR. When using Pardot, a data transfer to the USA cannot be ruled out. Salesforce.com Inc. has had Binding Corporate Rules approved by the European Data Protection Board since 2015, which ensure a level of data protection that complies with the GDPR.

8. CUSTOM SERVICES
HANDLING OF APPLICANT DATA
We offer you the opportunity to apply to us (e.g., by email, postal mail, or online application form). In the following, we will inform you about the scope, purpose, and use of your personal data collected during the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing, and use of your data will be in accordance with applicable data protection law and all other legal requirements and that your data will be treated as strictly confidential.
Scope and purpose of the collection of data
If you send us an application, we will process the personal data associated with it (e.g., contact and communication data, application documents, notes from job interviews, etc.), to the extent necessary to decide on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is § 26 BDSG-new according to German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR (general initiation of a contract), and – if you have given your consent – Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. Consent is revocable at any time. Your personal data will only be passed on within our company to persons involved in the processing of your application. If the application is successful, the data you submitted will be stored on the basis of § 26 BDSG-new and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR for the purpose of carrying out the employment relationship in our data processing systems.
Data Archiving Period
If we do not make you a job offer or you reject a job offer or withdraw your application, we reserve the right to retain the data you have submitted to us on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) for up to 6 months after the end of the application process (rejection or withdrawal of the application). Afterward, the data will be deleted, and the physical application documents will be destroyed. Storage serves in particular as evidence in the event of a legal dispute. If it is apparent that the data will be required after the 6-month period has expired (e.g., due to an impending or pending legal dispute), deletion will only take place when the purpose for further storage no longer applies. A longer storage period may also occur if you have given your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR) or if statutory retention obligations prevent deletion.
Photos Published on Our Site
The photos of our products, facilities, employees, or customers published on our website and on the internet are strictly subject to legal copyright protection. Copying, storing, extracting, reusing, processing, and/or otherwise publishing them requires our express consent and is prohibited until then. Any violations will be reported without exception.
Photos of Events
We take photos at events (e.g., trade fairs, company events, etc.), which are published on the website, social media channels, and in print media (e.g., brochures and flyers, etc.). These photos serve public relations, customer retention, and the presentation of our activities. We base this on our legitimate interest. We assume that our stated interest in taking and using the photos does not unduly interfere with the rights and freedoms of the natural persons involved. This is particularly the case because they have voluntarily entered the public space and have been informed in advance and during the event, among other things, by signs, about the taking and use of the photos. If, for particularly worthy reasons, the rights and freedoms of a person depicted are violated, we will refrain from further processing through appropriate measures. Anonymization in already handed out print media is not possible. Deletion from our website or social media channels will take place within the technical possibilities.
Children and Adolescents
Persons under 18 years of age should not transmit personal data to us without the consent of their parents or legal guardians. We do not request, collect, or share personal data from children and adolescents unless it is directly necessary for apprenticeship training.
