5. SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. When SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties (end-to-end encryption). The protocols authenticate the communication partner and ensure the integrity of the transmitted data.
In addition to the data mentioned above, cookies are used on your computer when you use and visit our website.
Cookies are small text files that are stored by your browser on your end device to save certain information. Furthermore, these cookies are used to make the use of our website more pleasant and convenient for you or for analytical purposes.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are used to make the services of our website technically available to you. After your visit, these cookies are automatically deleted by your browser.
Other cookies remain on your computer and enable us to recognise your end device on your next visit (so-called persistent or permanent cookies).
The next time you visit our website with the same end device, the information stored in cookies is read either by our website ("first party cookie") or by another website to which the cookie belongs ("third party cookie").
These cookies are automatically deleted from your system after a preset period of time, which differs depending on the cookie.
Through the stored and returned information, the respective website recognises that you have already accessed and visited it with the browser of your end device.
We use this information to optimise the design and display of the website according to your preferences. Only the cookie itself is identified on your end device.
Any further storage of personal data will only take place with your express consent or if this is absolutely necessary in order to be able to use the service offered and called up by you accordingly.
You have the option of generally deactivating cookies in your browser at any time (see below). However, deactivating cookies may limit the functionality of this website.
This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and function of which are explained below:
Here you will find information on how to delete cookies in your browser and manage the cookie settings for the most common browsers (you can select your preferred language directly on the browser page):
If you have not made or do not make any different settings, cookies that enable or ensure the necessary technical functions will remain on your end device until you close the browser; other cookies may remain on your end device for longer (maximum 6 months).

You can contact us on our website using the contact form or by e-mail.
In this context, your details from the corresponding form or from the e-mail, including the contact details you provide there, will be stored and processed by us to process the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions.

In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the enquiries addressed to us.
The data you provide will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, you object to the processing or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your enquiry has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

Our website uses "Matomo", a web analysis service provided by InnoCraft Ltd, 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand.
We use Matomo to analyse the use of our website and individual functions and offers to continuously improve the user experience. By statistically evaluating user behaviour, we improve our offer and make it more interesting for visitors.
Matomo stores cookies on your end device that enable your use of our website to be analysed.
The information collected in this way is stored exclusively on our server, namely the following data:
Our website uses Matomo with the setting "Anonymise Visitors' IP addresses". This means that IP addresses are further processed in abbreviated form, thus excluding the possibility of direct personal references. The software is set so that the IP addresses are not stored in full, but 2 bytes of the IP address are masked (e.g. 192.168.xxx.xxx). In this way, it is no longer possible to assign the truncated IP address to the calling computer. The IP address transmitted by your browser via Matomo is not merged with other data collected by us.
The data of the processing described here will be deleted after a storage period of 30 days.
The legal basis for the processing of the user's data is their consent.
You can prevent the analysis by deleting existing cookies and deactivating the storage of cookies in the settings of your web browser. We would like to point out that in this case, you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent.
You have the option of preventing the actions you take here from being analysed and linked. This will not only protect your privacy but will also prevent the owner from learning about your actions and improving usability for you and other users.

We have concluded an order processing agreement with Google for the transfer of personal data. If data is transferred to third countries in which an adequate level of data protection cannot be guaranteed, we have concluded EU standard data protection clauses with Google in accordance with Art. 46 GDPR.

Google Maps is integrated on the website via the Google API to visualise location information and display it in the form of a map. The files required for this purpose are requested via the Google domains maps.googleapis.com, maps.gstatic.com, fonts.googleapis.com and/or fonts.gstatic.com.
Gstatic is a domain used by Google to load static content into a different domain name to reduce bandwidth usage and increase network performance for the end user.
For the display of the map, the processing of the IP address by Google Maps is technically necessary. Regarding the other web services integrated via Google APIs, the regulations in the respective section of this data protection declaration for Google APIs apply.
By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, the following information will be transmitted:
This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
The transmission takes place regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not wish this assignment with your Google profile, you must log out of your Google profile before using our website. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for advertising, market research and/or customising its website. Such evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide customised advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact Google to exercise this right.
You can prevent Google from collecting and processing personal data (especially your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by deactivating the execution of script code in your browser, installing a script blocker in your browser or activating the "Do Not Track" setting in your browser. You can find Google's security and data protection principles at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en-GB

XING / Kununu - Profile
We operate websites on XING and Kununu to present our company. The provider of XING and Kununu is New Work SE, Dammtorstrasse 30, 20354 Hamburg, Germany.
Our XING profile is an active and contemporary way of addressing potential employees in a professional environment. On this page, we also share information about our company and present ourselves to the outside world. We provide information about our services, products, interesting special offers and employment opportunities in our company.
If you are asked by Xing for consent (consent) to data processing, e.g. with the help of a checkbox, the legal basis for data processing is your consent.
For detailed information on the processing and use of data by the providers on their pages as well as a contact option and your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy, please refer to Xing's data protection information: https://privacy.xing.com/en
Kununu primarily offers users the opportunity to make and view reviews of employers. At the same time, we use our online presence on Kununu to provide information about our company, career opportunities, our products, and services.
The data processing takes place as joint processing. For content that you provide directly on the platform, i.e. comments, private messages or similar, New Work SE and we act as joint controllers in accordance with Art. 26 GDPR.
The legal basis for the processing of the data is your consent, insofar as you have given it, as well as the protection of the legitimate interests of the controller or a third party. If you contact us, the legal basis may also be the need to implement pre-contractual measures.
The legitimate interest is that we would like to communicate with you via our Kununu page and inform you about our company, career opportunities and jobs, our products and services.
Since only New Work SE has information about the data collected and its use on the respective platforms, requests for information and the assertion of other data subject rights should be made directly there. Of course, you can also send us any enquiries in this regard, and we will forward them to the operator for further processing.
Via the XING and Kununu platforms, we only process the data that you provide to us directly. This includes comments, enquiries, your user profile, reviews and similar information. This data is retained for the duration of the website's existence.
The data we use is only processed within the territory of the EU or the EEA. We do not transfer data to third countries.
17. Your rights and assertion of rights
You are entitled to the rights listed below. You can assert these rights against us. To assert your rights, please use the above data or contact us by email at email@example.com.
You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your situation, at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions.
The controller will no longer process the personal data concerning you unless the controller demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If your data is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your data for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.
If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes.
Notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, you have the option of exercising your right to object in connection with the use of information society services using automated procedures using technical specifications.
Automated decision-making in individual cases, including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the controller, is authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or is based on your explicit consent.
However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 para. 1 GDPR, unless Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a) or g) GDPR applies, and appropriate measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.
Complaint to a supervisory authority
You have the right to complain with a supervisory authority. As a rule, you can contact the supervisory authority of your usual place of residence or workplace or our company headquarters.
