The following data is collected in this process:

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to your computer. For this purpose, your IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session. The storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data for technical optimization of the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.

3. Establishing contact
When contacting us (e.g. via contact form, email, telephone or via social media), we process your data for processing the contact request and its handling.
If you have given us your consent for this, the legal basis for the processing of this data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. Otherwise, the legal basis for the processing of this data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, in particular if the data is transmitted to us by you by sending an e-mail. Insofar as you wish to work towards the conclusion of a contract by contacting us, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR represents an additional legal basis.
If we provide a contact form on our website, the data you enter in the input mask is transmitted to us and stored, e.g. inventory data (e.g. names, addresses) and contact data (e.g. e-mail, telephone numbers).
In addition, we record your IP address and the time of submission. The processing of personal data from the input mask serves us solely to process the contact. In the case of contact by e-mail, this also constitutes the necessary legitimate interest in processing the data. The other personal data processed during the sending process serve to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. Unless explicitly stated in the contact form, the data will not be passed on to third parties.
Your data may also be temporarily stored in a customer relationship management system (“CRM system”) or comparable inquiry organization.
Subject to legal retention periods, the data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent by e-mail, this is the case when we have finally processed your respective request.
You have the option to revoke your consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If you contact us by e-mail, you can object to the storage of your personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued.
On our website, you can use the opportunity to apply for a job advertisement. The subject of data protection is the processing of personal data, in this case in the context of application management.

In addition, the use of an applicant management system may be in our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. If consent within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a is required for a specific processing activity, this will be obtained from you separately and transparently.
4.2 Disclosure of data

The personal data collected by us for the order will be stored until the expiry of the legal warranty obligation and then deleted, unless we are obliged to store it for a longer period of time according to Article 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c GDPR due to tax and commercial law retention and documentation obligations or you have consented to a storage beyond this according to Article 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR.

7. Third-party services
We also use services on our website that we use for reach measurement, online marketing and the integration of third-party content and functions.
For reach measurement, we analyze the surfing behavior of website visitors, i.e. we evaluate the behavior and interests of users, e.g. to determine which content is particularly interesting or which functions require optimization. For this purpose, cookies or similar procedures with the same purpose may be used to create user profiles of website visitors. In addition to the IP address, information on websites visited, content viewed and technical characteristics such as the browser used as well as details on usage times and location data may be processed in this context.
In the context of online marketing, we process personal data of website visitors for the marketing of advertising space or the display of advertising content. These are intended to be tailored to the potential interests of users, which is why we measure their effectiveness. Cookies or similar procedures with the same purpose may be used for this purpose and user profiles of the website visitors may be created. In addition to the IP address, information on visited websites, viewed content and technical characteristics such as the browser used as well as information on usage times and location data can be processed in this context. These cookies can later also be read on other websites that use the same online marketing procedure and analyzed for the purpose of displaying content as well as supplemented with further data and stored on the server of the online marketing procedure provider.
In addition, we integrate functional and content elements (e.g. images, videos, texts and buttons) from third-party providers on our website. These functional and content elements are usually obtained from the servers of these third-party providers. To display this content and functionality, it is necessary for the providers to process the IP address of the users in order to send the content to the browser. The providers of the functional and content elements may also use so-called pixel tags or “web beacons”, i.e. invisible graphics, for statistical and marketing purposes. This information may also be stored in cookies. In addition to the IP address, information on visited websites, viewed content and technical characteristics, such as the browser used, as well as information on usage times and the use of our offers, can be processed in this context. This information may also be combined with such information from other sources.
You can change your privacy settings or revoke your consent at any time by accessing the cookie banner again, e.g. by clicking on the “Cookie Settings” link in the footer or the corresponding icon on the website. If you use software such as Ghostery, AdBlock or similar via your browser, the cookie banner may be blocked. Consequently, the privacy information in it may not be displayed to you.

8. social media accounts
To offer information about us and to be able to communicate with users, we operate accounts within social networks. These can be accounts of our company as well as individual divisions and media brands, as well as the pages of our corporate influencers.
Various user data may also be processed by the operators of the social networks outside the European Union and in particular in the USA. This data may include inventory data (e.g., names, addresses), contact data (e.g., e-mail, telephone numbers), content data (e.g., entries in online forms), usage data (e.g., websites visited, interest in content, access times), and meta/communication data (e.g., device information, IP addresses).
The operators of the social networks generally also process the users’ data for market research and advertising purposes. The usage behavior stored in cookies on the users’ computers and the users’ interests can be used by the operators to play interest-based advertising inside and outside the networks. Therefore, we refer to the data protection statements of the respective networks for a detailed presentation of data processing and data subject rights.
We process data in connection with the operation of our social media presences based on our legitimate economic interest pursuant to Art. 6 para.1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR for the efficient processing of contact requests, queries and for communication with you, for the needs-based design of our offers, for product information and for customer care.
Pages can be operated in the following social networks:
9. social media plugins
So-called plugins from social networks may also be used on our website. We may use plugins from the following providers: Facebook, Twitter, XING, LinkedIn, Instagram.
We do not use direct plugins from social networks on our website, but instead use a privacy-friendly alternative in which the social media buttons are merely integrated as links to the pages of the external service providers. With the help of this solution, you can determine yourself whether and when data is transmitted to the operators of the respective social networks. Therefore, when you call up our website, no data will be automatically transmitted to the above-mentioned social networks as a matter of principle. Only when you yourself actively click on the respective button do you switch to the website of the social network and your browser establishes a connection to the servers of the respective social network. Thereupon, your data can be processed by the operator.
For more information on the purpose and scope of data processing by the plugin provider, please refer to the respective privacy statements of these providers. There you will also receive further information about your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy.
