7. Plugins and tools

YouTube with enhanced privacy

This website embeds YouTube videos. The website operator is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

We use YouTube in privacy-enhanced mode. According to YouTube, this mode has the effect that no information about visitors to this website is saved before they watch the video. Privacy-enhanced mode does not, however, necessarily exclude data from being passed on to YouTube partners. Whether or not you watch a video, YouTube establishes a connection to the Google DoubleClick network.

As soon as you start a YouTube video on this website, a connection will be established to the YouTube servers. The YouTube server will be informed about which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to match your browsing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

In addition, YouTube can save various cookies on your device after a video is started and use these cookies to obtain information about visitors. This information is used, for example, to record video statistics, improve user friendliness and prevent fraud attempts. The cookies will remain on your device until you delete them.

Other data processing operations, over which we have no influence, may also be activated once a YouTube video has been started.

YouTube is used in the interest of making our website presentation appealing. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. If appropriate consent was requested (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), processing will be carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 (1) a GDPR; consent can be revoked at any time.

Handling applicant data

We offer you the opportunity to apply for a job with us (e.g. by e-mail, postal services or online application form). Below, we inform you about the scope, purpose and use of the personal data collected from you in conjunction with the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing and use of your data occurs in compliance with the applicable data privacy rights and all other statutory provisions and that your data is always treated as strictly confidential.

Scope and purpose of the collection of data 

If you submit a job application to us, we will process any affiliated personal data (e.g. contact and communications data, application documents, notes taken during job interviews, etc.), if they are required to make a decision concerning the establishment or an employment relationship. The legal grounds for the aforementioned are § 26 New GDPR according to German Law (Negotiation of an Employment Relationship), Art. 6 (1) b GDPR (General Contract Negotiations) and – provided you have given us your consent – Art. 6 (1) a GDPR. You may revoke any consent given at any time. Within our company, your personal data will only be shared with individuals who are involved in the processing of your job application.

Should your job application result in your recruitment, the data you have submitted will be archived on the grounds of Art. 26 New GDPR and Art. 6 (1) b GDPR for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship in our data processing system.

Data retention period

If we are unable to offer you a position, or if you reject a job offer or withdraw your application, we reserve the right to retain the data transmitted by you on the basis of legitimate interests (Art. 6 (1) f GDPR) for up to six months from the completion of the application process (rejection or withdrawal of the application). The data will subsequently be deleted and the physical application documents destroyed. The purpose of retention is, in particular, to provide proof in the case of litigation. If it is foreseeable that the data will be required after the six-month retention period has expired (e.g. due to imminent or pending litigation), the data shall not be deleted until the purpose for further retention ceases to apply.

Longer retention can also take place if you have given appropriate consent (Art. 6 (1) a GDPR) or if statutory retention obligations preclude deletion.
