If you decide to create such a customer account, your personal data will be processed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO. Once your customer account has been set up, it is no longer necessary to re-enter your personal data in order to carry out the orders.
However, you have the option of deleting your customer account at any time or changing your data stored in this context at any time.

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO.
After registering for the newsletter, you will receive a confirmation e-mail confirming compliance with the double opt-in procedure. By clicking on the link contained therein, you confirm that you have actually subscribed to the newsletter and that you are the owner of the registered e-mail address. When you subscribe to our newsletter, your IP address and the date and time of your subscription will also be saved. In this way, we ensure that your e-mail address is not misused by third parties.

We process personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application process. The processing can also be carried out electronically.

Open vacancies can be found under the heading "Job market" on our website. If an employment contract is concluded with an applicant, the personal data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the responsible person does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be deleted after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the responsible person stand in the way of deletion. Other legitimate interests in this sense include, for example, the duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz - AGG).
The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.

- data processing through the use of Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics on our website. This is a web analytics service provided by Google LLC. (hereinafter referred to as "Google"), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA.
This service stores cookies (see "Cookies" above) on your PC. This will record your use of our website (IP address, time, location, duration, number). This information is also transmitted to Google. However, we use an anonymization function ("_gat._anonymizeIp"). This shortens your IP address within the EU and makes it anonymous.
Google evaluates the transmitted information and transmits the evaluation to us and offers us services within this framework. This information may be transferred to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google.
You can use the settings of your Internet browser to prevent or restrict the storage of cookies on our website. However, this may also restrict the usability of the website.
In addition, you can prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the storage of cookies and related to your use of the website and Google from processing this data. Google provides a deactivation add-on for browsers which you can download and install under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en
Any further personal data will only be collected if you agree to this or voluntarily provide it to us, e.g. in the context of a contact request, an application or for the execution of an order.
The personal data provided by you will be used for the purpose of establishing contact and/or carrying out the order.
Your personal data will be deleted if they are no longer required for the original purpose. Personal data which are subject to statutory retention periods are excluded from this.
- use of Google Maps
- use of Google Web Fonts
On our website we use so-called web fonts, which are provided by Google, for the uniform representation of fonts. For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to Google's servers. This gives Google knowledge that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online services. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) DSGVO.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font will be used by your end device.
- Deletion of personal data
Your personal data will only be stored by us for as long as it is needed for the purposes for which it was collected. Your personal data will only be deleted if there are no legal obligations to retain them.

4 Right to deletion
Pursuant to Art. 17 DSGVO, you have the right to demand the deletion of your personal data stored by us, unless processing is necessary for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information, for the fulfilment of a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
5 Right to limitation of processing
Pursuant to Art. 18 DSGVO, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data insofar as the accuracy of the data is disputed by you, the processing is unlawful, but you refuse its deletion and we no longer need the data, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO.

If your personal data is processed on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) DSGVO, you have the right, pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO, to object to the processing of your personal data if there are reasons for doing so which arise from your particular situation or which are directed against direct advertising.

We use technical and organisational security measures in order to protect your personal data processed by us against manipulation, loss, destruction and against access by unauthorised persons. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments. However, Internet-based data transmissions can always have security gaps, so that we cannot guarantee absolute protection. You are therefore free to transmit your personal data to us by alternative means, such as telephone.
