Google Analytics enables the website operator to analyze the behavior of website visitors. The website operator receives various usage data, such as B. page views, length of stay, operating systems used and origin of the user. This data may be summarized by Google in a profile that is assigned to the respective user or their device.

Demographic characteristics in Google Analytics

This website uses the “demographic characteristics” function of Google Analytics in order to be able to show website visitors appropriate advertisements within the Google advertising network. This allows reports to be created that contain statements on the age, gender and interests of the site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google as well as from visitor data from third-party providers. These data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as described in the section “Objection to data collection”.

Google Analytics e-commerce tracking

WordPress statistics

This website uses “WordPress Statistics” to statistically evaluate visitor access. The provider is Automattic Inc., 60 29th Street # 343, San Francisco, CA 94110-4929, USA.

WordPress Statistics uses technologies that enable the user to be recognized for the purpose of analyzing user behavior (e.g. cookies or device fingerprinting).

In addition, targeted advertisements can be displayed based on the user data available on Google (e.g. location data and interests) (target group targeting). As the website operator, we can quantitatively evaluate this data, for example by analyzing which search terms led to our advertisements being displayed and how many advertisements led to the corresponding clicks.

The use of Google Ads is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in marketing his service products as effectively as possible.

Google AdSense (not personalized)

This website uses Google AdSense, a service for integrating advertisements. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

We use Google AdSense in “non-personalized” mode. In contrast to the personalized mode, the advertisements are therefore not based on your previous user behavior and no user profile is created for you. Instead, so-called “context information” is used when selecting the advertisement. The selected advertisements are then based, for example, on your location, the content of the website you are on or your current search terms. You can find out more about the differences between personalized and non-personalized targeting with Google AdSense at: https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/9007336 .

Please note that cookies or comparable recognition technologies (e.g. device fingerprinting) can also be used when using Google Adsense in non-personalized mode. According to Google, these are used to combat fraud and abuse.

AdSense is used on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in marketing his website as effectively as possible.

Google remarketing

This website uses the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Google Remarketing analyzes your user behavior on our website (e.g. clicking on certain products) in order to classify you into certain advertising target groups and then show you suitable advertising messages when you visit other online offers (remarketing or retargeting).

Furthermore, the advertising target groups created with Google Remarketing can be linked to the cross-device functions of Google. In this way, interest-based, personalized advertising messages that have been adapted to you depending on your previous usage and surfing behavior on one device (e.g. mobile phone) can also be displayed on another of your devices (e.g. tablet or PC).

If you have a Google account, you can object to personalized advertising under the following link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/ .

Google Remarketing is used on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in marketing his products as effectively as possible.

If the customers concerned are Google users and logged in to their Google account, they will be shown suitable advertising messages within the Google network (e.g. on YouTube, Gmail or in the search engine).

Google conversion tracking

This website uses Google Conversion Tracking. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

With the help of Google conversion tracking, we and Google can recognize whether the user has carried out certain actions. For example, we can evaluate which buttons on our website were clicked how often and which products were viewed or purchased particularly often. This information is used to generate conversion statistics. We find out the total number of users who clicked on our ads and what actions they took. We do not receive any information with which we can personally identify the user. Google itself uses cookies or comparable recognition technologies for identification.

The use of Google conversion tracking 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 website and its advertising. If a corresponding consent has been requested (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), processing takes place exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the consent can be withdrawn at any time.

You can find more information on Google Conversion Tracking in Google’s data protection provisions: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de .

Google DoubleClick

This website uses functions from Google DoubleClick. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter “DoubleClick”).

DoubleClick is used to show you interest-based advertisements across the entire Google advertising network. With the help of DoubleClick, the advertisements can be tailored to the interests of the respective viewer. For example, our advertising can be displayed in Google search results or in advertising banners linked to DoubleClick.

In order to be able to display interest-based advertising to users, DoubleClick must recognize the respective viewer and be able to assign the websites he has visited, clicks and other information on user behavior. For this purpose, DoubleClick uses cookies or comparable recognition technologies (e.g. device fingerprinting). The information collected is combined into a pseudonymous user profile in order to display interest-based advertising to the user concerned.

Google DoubleClick is used in the interest of targeted advertising. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If a corresponding consent has been requested (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), processing takes place exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the consent can be withdrawn at any time.

Facebook pixel

This website uses Facebook’s visitor action pixels to measure conversion. The provider of this service is Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland. However, according to Facebook, the data collected will also be transferred to the USA and other third countries.

In this way, the behavior of the site visitors can be tracked after they have been redirected to the provider’s website by clicking on a Facebook ad. This allows the effectiveness of the Facebook advertisements to be evaluated for statistical and market research purposes and future advertising measures to be optimized.

The data collected is anonymous for us as the operator of this website; we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of the user. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with the Facebook data usage guidelines.

The use of Facebook pixels is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in effective advertising measures including social media.

According to this agreement, we are responsible for providing data protection information when using the Facebook tool and for implementing the tool on our website in a manner that is secure under data protection law. Facebook is responsible for the data security of Facebook products. You can assert the rights of data subjects (e.g. requests for information) with regard to the data processed on Facebook directly on Facebook.

LinkedIn Insight Day

This website uses the LinkedIn Insight Tag. The provider of this service is LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Data processing by LinkedIn Insight Tag

With the help of the LinkedIn Insight Tag, we receive information about the visitors to our website. If a website visitor is registered with LinkedIn, we can, among other things, analyze the key professional data (e.g. career level, company size, country, location, industry and job title) of our website visitors and thus better tailor our site to the respective target groups. Furthermore, with the help of LinkedIn Insight Tags, we can measure whether visitors to our website are making a purchase or some other action (conversion measurement). The conversion measurement can also take place across devices (e.g. from PC to tablet). LinkedIn Insight Tag also offers a retargeting function with the help of which we can show visitors to our website targeted advertising outside of the website, whereby, according to LinkedIn, no identification of the advertising address takes place.

LinkedIn itself also records so-called log files (URL, referrer URL, IP address, device and browser properties and time of access). The IP addresses are shortened or (if they are used to reach LinkedIn members across devices) hashed (pseudonymized). The direct IDs of LinkedIn members are deleted from LinkedIn after seven days. The remaining pseudonymised data will then be deleted within 180 days.

The data collected by LinkedIn cannot be assigned to specific individuals by us as the website operator. LinkedIn will save the collected personal data of the website visitors on its servers in the USA and use it as part of its own advertising measures. Details can be found in LinkedIn’s privacy policy at https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy#choices-oblig .

Legal basis

LinkedIn Insight is used on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in effective advertising measures including social media.

Handling of applicant data

We offer you the opportunity to apply to us (e.g. by email, post or via the online application form).

We assure you that your data will be collected, processed and used in accordance with the applicable data protection law and all other statutory provisions and that your data will be treated as strictly confidential.

Scope and purpose of the data collection

If you send us an application, we process your related personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes in the context of job interviews, etc.), insofar as this is necessary to decide on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is § 26 BDSG according to German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR (general contract initiation) and – if you have given your consent – Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.

The data will then be deleted and the physical application documents destroyed. The storage serves in particular for evidence purposes in the event of a legal dispute. If it is evident that the data will be required after the 6-month period has expired (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), it will only be deleted when the purpose for further storage no longer applies.

Longer storage can also take place if you have given your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR) or if statutory retention requirements prevent deletion.

Inclusion in the applicant pool

If we do not make you a job offer, you may be able to be included in our pool of applicants. In the event of admission, all documents and information from the application will be transferred to the applicant pool in order to contact you in the event of suitable vacancies.

The inclusion in the applicant pool takes place exclusively on the basis of your express consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR). Giving your consent is voluntary and has no relation to the current application process. The person concerned can revoke his consent at any time.
