We only process your personal data insofar as this is necessary for the provision of our services. In addition, we only process personal data if you actively provide it to us, e.g. as part of a registration, by filling out forms, sending e-mails and inquiries or when ordering a newsletter or other services.

We will only use the personal data provided by you for the purpose of processing the contract and handling your inquiries. Your personal data will only be processed and used for other purposes, such as consulting, advertising and market research, if you have previously consented to the corresponding use or if we are entitled or obliged to process it on the basis of a statutory provision.

Provision of the WebSite and Creation of Logfiles

When using the WebSite, we only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. When you visit the WebSite, we collect the following information that is technically necessary for us to enable you to visit the WebSite and to ensure stability and security (the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. f GDPR):

  • The website you last visited

  • Date and time of retrieval

  • Name of the Internet access provider (ISP)

  • Browser type/version and language

  • The operating system used

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection for the provision of the WebSite, this is the case when the respective session has ended. If the data is stored in log files, it will be deleted by 90 days at the latest. Further storage is possible, however, in this case the IP addresses are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.


In order to optimise the functionality and usability of the WebSite, we use so-called cookies.

We use the web analysis service Matomo from InnoCraft Ltd, 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand, NZBN 6106769 on our website.

This is an open source software with which we can analyze your use of our website. Matomo is only activated on the basis of your prior active consent through corresponding interaction with the cookie banner on our website.

The following data is collected by Matomo: Your IP address, date and time of your visit, usage data, usage behavior, technical information about your browser as well as device information, downloads, referrer URL (via which website/advertising media you came to this website) and location information.

Our WebSite uses plug-ins from the video portal Vimeo. Provider is Vimeo Inc. 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA.

When you visit one of our pages equipped with a Vimeo plugin, a connection to the Vimeo servers is established. The Vimeo server is informed which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged in to Vimeo as a member, Vimeo assigns this information to your personal user account. When you click on the start button of a video, this information can also be assigned to an existing user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your Vimeo user account before using our website and deleting the corresponding cookies from Vimeo. Vimeo also obtains your IP address. This also applies if you are not logged in to Vimeo or do not have a Vimeo account. The information collected by Vimeo is transmitted to the Vimeo server in the USA.

Further information on the handling of user data can be found in Vimeo's privacy policy at: https://vimeo.com/privacy.

We use this service within our website on the basis of a legitimate interest - in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

You can also prevent Vimeo from loading via your browser settings (deactivate JavaScript and iFrames).

 reCaptcha v3

We use the open source technology reCaptcha v3 from Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland on our website.

This service helps our website to prevent spam and block bots. The program recognizes whether the user is a real person or a bot in order to protect our website from cyber attacks.

ReCaptcha v3 works with an algorithm that collects and analyzes a user's interactions with a website to create a score. The final score indicates whether the activity is suspicious. This version aims to improve the user experience by eliminating the need for questions and creating a seamless user experience.

The following data is processed by reCaptcha: Mouse and keyboard behavior (any action you perform with the mouse or keyboard), information about your operating system, date and language settings of your browser, the Google cookies placed on the website, your answers to the question fields on the website, referrer URL (via which website/advertising media you came to this website), CSS information, all JavaScript objects, screen resolution and the plug-ins installed in your browser. The algorithm also recognizes IP addresses that were previously recognized as human by cookies.

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is the fulfillment of our legal obligation regarding the obtaining of consent and its verifiability in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. In addition, there is a legitimate interest in the use of Google reCaptcha to optimize and increase the security of the online offer, the legal basis for which is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Social Shares

Social shares

On our websites in our job advertisements, social shares are provided by the social networks "LinkedIn" (provider: LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, California 94043, USA), "XING" (provider: Xing AG, Gänsemarkt 43, 20354 Hamburg, Germany) and "Facebook" (provider: Meta Platforms, Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, California 94304, USA) on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. For reasons of data protection, we have deliberately decided against using direct plug-ins from social networks. Therefore, when you visit our websites, no data is automatically transmitted to the above-mentioned social networks. Only when you actively click on the respective button (i.e. the LinkedIn, Xing or Facebook logo) does your Internet browser establish a connection to the servers of the respective social network. If you follow the links while visiting our website and are logged in to LinkedIn, Xing or Facebook via your personal user account, the information that you have visited our website may be forwarded to the operator of the social network in question. In this case, LinkedIn, Xing or Facebook can assign your visit to our website to your user account. If you do not want social networks to be able to associate your visit to our website with your respective user account, you must log out of these social networks before visiting our website.

We would like to point out that we have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted (personal) data or its use by LinkedIn, Xing or Facebook.

Further information on this can be found in the privacy policies of LinkedIn, Xing and Facebook at
