We take the protection of your personal data very seriously and comply strictly with the rules of the Data Protection Act. Personal data will only be collected on this website in as far as it is technically necessary. Under no circumstances will the data collected be sold or communicated to third parties for whatever reasons. Despite thorough checking of the content, liability cannot be accepted for links to external content, since we have neither instigated the transfer of this information, nor selected the addressee of the information transferred nor selected or modified the transferred information. The following declaration provides an overview of how data protection is assured and what data is collected for what purpose.

2. Usage and transfer of personal data
Where personal data is made available to us, it will only be used for the purpose of answering your enquiries. Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties or otherwise transferred, if this is necessary for the purpose of fulfilling the contract, for accounting reasons or with your prior agreement. You have the right to cancel your permission at any time with regard to the future. The personal data stored will be deleted, if you withdraw your permission for storage, if the data is no longer required to fulfil the purpose for which it was stored or if storage is not permitted for other legal reasons.
3. Access to personal data
You are entitled to know what personal data is being stored at any time, its origin and recipient as well as why it is being stored. On written application we will be glad to inform you what personal data is being stored about you.
We make every effort through technical and organizational means to ensure that your personal data is stored in such a way that it cannot be accessed by third parties. However, in the case of communication by e-mail, complete data security cannot be guaranteed and thus we recommend that confidential information is sent by post.
For personal data made available to us through the career page, the Data Protection Declaration for Applicants’ Data (in German) shall apply.
