You can visit our web pages without providing any information about your person. Our website saves some personalized information as well as personal data about users. The law defines personal data as information about the personal and material circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person (§ 3 Paragraph 1 Federal Data Protection Act). This includes, for example, the person’s name, address, email or telephone number. According to the prevailing view, the IP address assigned individually to each computer by a provider is also considered data that can be used to identify a person. Information that cannot be used to identify you (anonymized data) is not considered personal data, for example merely stating your age or gender without reference to your person.
Storage of data by our website/server data
Our website initially collects general information automatically (in other words, not by means of registration) that is not used as personal data, through server log files. By default, the web servers and statistics programs that we implement collect the following information, among other things:
- language and version of the browser software
- implemented operating system and its interface
- hostname of the accessing computer (IP address)
- date and time of the server request
- time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
- access status/HTTP status code
- volume of data transmitted in each case
This information is exclusively stored for the technical administration of our website. It is not shared with third parties. This anonymous data is stored separately from any personal data that you provide, so it cannot be used to identify a specific person. It is analyzed for statistical purposes in order to optimize our website and our offerings.
Data collected from your provided information
Our website also actively collects information from you, for instance when you enter information into our contact form or subscribe to our newsletter. Naturally, this information is only used to provide the service that we are offering. The data is not transmitted to servers outside the EU.
The following provisions inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the provider’s collection, use and processing of personal data.

Please note that web-based data transmission is subject to security gaps, so it is not possible to seamlessly prevent third-party access with 100% confidence.
After the end of the purpose for which it was collected, we will only store your personal data for as long as this is required on the basis of the statutory regulations (e.g. especially tax regulations). As soon as the storage purpose no longer applies, the personal data will be erased or blocked.
In general, we use the personal data that you provide in order to respond to your inquiries, process your orders, execute contracts concluded with you, and provide you with access to specific information or offers.

It is operated by Defiant, 800 5th Ave Ste 4100, Seattle, WA 98104, USA (https://www.defiant.com/).

Advanced Custom Fields
This plugin allows for simpler administrative control of the “advanced custom fields” on the WordPress edit screen.
For the sake of security and to protect the transmission of confidential information, such as the inquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL encryption. You can identify an encrypted connection because the browser’s address line changes from “http://” to “https://” and the lock symbol appears in your browser line. When SSL encryption is enabled, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
We offer you the option of contacting us via email and/or using a contact form. In this case, the information provided by the user will be saved and processed in order to carry out the contact request. It is not shared with third parties. Data collected in this way is also not compared to any data that may be collected by other components on our site.
Integration of Google Maps
- On this website we use the offering of Google Maps. This allows us to show you interactive maps directly on the website and make the use of the map function as convenient as possible.
- By visiting the website, Google receives information about the fact that you have accessed the corresponding sub-page of our website. In addition, the data mentioned under Sect. 3 of this Policy will also be transmitted. This happens regardless of whether you have a Google user account that are logged into it or do not have a user account. If you are logged into Google, your data are directly assigned to your account. If you would prefer the use not to be associated with your Google profile, you need to log out prior to actuating the button. Google stores the data collected about you as usage profiles and utilizes such data for advertising purposes, market research and/or to tailor its website to address requirements. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users not signed in) to provide requests-oriented advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You are entitled to object to the creation of such user profiles, whereas you have to contact Google in order to assert your objection.
- Embedding is done based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (1) (a) of the GDPR, as you have provided your consent by clicking on the thumbnail image. Please note that the embedding of many social plugins leads to your data being processed outside of the EU or the EEA. In some countries there is the risk that the authorities access the data for security and monitoring purposes without informing you in advance or being able to take legal action. If we use providers in insecure third-party countries and you consent, there will be transfer to an insecure third-party country based on article 49 (1) (a) GDPR.
|Provider||Adequate data protection level||Withdrawal of consent|
|Google Maps||No adequate data protection level. Transfer occurs based on Art. 49 (1) (a) GDPR.||If you have clicked on a thumbnail, the content of the third-party provider will immediately be loaded. If you do not wish such loading to take place on other sites, please do not click on any thumbnails.|

We will collect and process your application data electronically in order to execute the application process. If your application leads to the conclusion of an employment contract, we can save your provided data in your personnel file for regular organizational and administrative purposes, particularly for executing the employment relationship, with consideration for the applicable legal provisions. If your job application is refused, the data you provided in the course of the application process will be erased automatically two months after you receive the refusal. This does not apply if legal requirements (for instance the obligation to provide proof under the General Equal Treatment Act) require a longer storage period, or if you have explicitly consented to longer storage in our contact database.
