Overview of processing
The following overview summarizes the types of data processed and the purposes of their processing and refers to the data subjects.
Relevant legal bases
Below you will find an overview of the legal aspects of the German General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on the basis of which we process personal data. Please note that in addition to the provisions of the GDPR, national data protection requirements may apply in your or our country of residence or domicile. If, in addition, more specific legal bases are decisive in individual cases, we will inform you of these in the data protection declaration.
In addition to the data protection regulations of the GDPR, national regulations on data protection apply in Germany. These include especially the law on the Protection against Misuse of Personal Data in Data Processing (Federal Data Protection Act – BDSG). In particular, the BDSG contains special provisions on the right to information, the right to erasure, the right to object, the processing of special categories of personal data, processing for other purposes and transmission, as well as automated decision-making in individual cases, including profiling. Furthermore, it regulates data processing for the purposes of employment relationships (Sec. 26 BDSG) in particular with regard to the establishment, implementation or termination of employment relationships, as well as the consent of employees. Furthermore, state data protection laws of the individual German federal states can be applicable.
Safety and security measures
In accordance with the legal requirements, taking into account the state of the art, the implementation costs and the nature, scope, circumstances and purposes of the processing as well as the different probabilities of occurrence and the extent of the threat to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, we take appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk.
Measures shall include, in particular, ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by controlling physical and electronic access to the data, as well as access, input, disclosure, ensuring availability and their separation. Furthermore, we have set up procedures that ensure the exercise of data subject rights, the deletion of data and reactions to the threat to the data. Furthermore, we take into account the protection of personal data already during the development or selection of hardware, software and procedures in accordance with the principle of data protection, through technology design and through data protection-friendly default settings.
Shortening of the IP address: If IP addresses are processed by us or by the service providers and technologies used and the processing of a complete IP address is not required, the IP address will be shortened (also referred to as “IP masking”). The last two digits, or the last part of the IP address after a period, are removed or replaced by placeholders. The shortening of the IP address is intended to prevent or make it much more difficult to identify a person based on their IP address.
TLS encryption (https): In order to protect your data transmitted via our online offer, we use TLS encryption. You can recognize such encrypted connections by the prefix https:// in the address bar of your browser.
Transmission of personal data

The recipients of this data may include, for example, service providers commissioned with IT tasks or providers of services and content that are integrated into a website. In such a case, we observe the legal requirements and, in particular, conclude corresponding contracts or agreements with the recipients of your data that serve to protect your data.
Data transfer within the organization: We may transfer personal data to other entities within our organization or grant them access to this data. If this transfer takes place for administrative purposes, the transfer of the data is based on our legitimate business and business interests or takes place if it is necessary to fulfil our contractual obligations or if there is a consent of the persons concerned or a legal permission.
