We only use statistical and analytical cookies if you have given us your consent to do so via the cookie banner when you first visit our website. The purpose of these cookies is to analyze your behavior on the website in order to optimize the website and adapt it according to the wishes of the users.

We use the following statistical / analytical cookies from Google LLC on our website to use the Google Analytics service:

  • _ga (to identify individual users; duration 2 years),
  • _gat (to protect against a too high request rate; duration 1 minute),
  • _gid (to identify individual users; duration 1 day).

Further information on the use of Google Analytics can be found in the following section 5 of this privacy policy.

5. Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics on the website, a web analytics service provided by Google Ire-land Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (parent company: Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) ("Google"). Google Analytics uses cookies (for more information, see section 4 of this privacy statement).

The information generated by the cookie about the use of the website is usually transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. We have extended Google Analytics by the code "gat._anonymizeIp();" to ensure anonymized collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). This means that the IP addresses of users are shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. In this way, the full IP address is only transmitted to a Google server in the USA in exceptional cases and shortened there. In these cases, Google secures the data transfer by concluding EU standard contractual clauses.

Google uses this information to evaluate the use of the website by users, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with other services related to website and internet usage. According to Google, the IP address transmitted by a user's browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. However, we do not have a precise insight into how Google processes your data.

The user can revoke her/his consent to the setting of cookies by Google Analytics by using the opt-out option in section 4.2 of this privacy policy.

Further information on terms of use and data protection can be found under Google Analytics Terms of Use or Google Analytics Overview or in Google's privacy policy.

6. Data transfer to third parties

Within the controller, your data will be processed by those departments that require it in order to fulfill our contractual and legal obligations.

If we are legally obligated to do so, we may have to transfer your data to authorities or courts. In this case, this data transfer is justified according to Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR.

As described in section 5, we also transfer some personal data to Google as part of Google Analytics.

In addition, we may transfer your personal data to companies affiliated with us pursuant to Sec. 15 et seq. German Stock Corporation Act (Aktiengesetz), which work closely with us and support us in the fulfillment of contractual obligations and in marketing.

In the course of fulfilling our contractual obligations, and after consultation with you, we may also transfer your personal data to business partners, customers or service providers cooperating with us (for example, for the purpose of presenting you as a candidate to one of our customers). Under certain circumstances, these service providers may be located in a third country outside the European Economic Area, which has a lower level of protection for personal data.

Furthermore, we use service providers from the categories of IT service; website hosting, website design and writing services. The service providers work exclusively in accordance with our instructions, which we ensure through strict contractual regulations according to Art. 28(3) GDPR, through technical and organizational measures and through supplementary controls.

7. Use of videotelephony

We also use Microsoft Teams ("Teams") videotelephony solutions to conduct interviews, appointments, and presentations. In doing so, we will enter your personal data to be processed by teams for the use of the videotelephony solution. The processing of your personal data is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO). Among the data processed are your name, email address, and meeting details (e.g. date, time, meeting ID, phone numbers, location).
