4. Use of cookies

We use cookies to operate our website in order to make it more user-friendly. Some elements of our website require that the calling browser can be identified even after a page change. 

Cookies are small files that make it possible to store specific information related to the device on the user’s access device (PC, smartphone,etc.). On the one hand, they serve the user-friendliness of websites and thus the users (e.g. storage of login data). On the other hand, they serve to collect the statistical data of the website use and to be able to analyse them in order to improve the offer. Users can influence the use of cookies. Most browsers have an option that restricts or completely prevents cookies from being saved. However, it is pointed out that the use and in particular the comfort of use are restricted without cookies. 

The user data collected in this way is pseudonymised by technical precautions. Therefore, it is no longer possible to assign the data to the calling user. The data are not stored together with other personal data of the users. 

The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The legal basis for the processing of personal data using technically necessary cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies for analysis purposes is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO if the user has given his consent. 

The purpose of using technically necessary cookies is to simplify the use of websites for users. Some functions of our website cannot be offered without the use of cookies. For these it is necessary that the browser is recognized also after a page change.
The analysis cookies are used for the purpose of improving the quality of our website and its content. Through the analysis cookies, we learn how the website is used and can thus constantly optimize our offer. 

In these purposes also our legitimate interest lies in the processing of personal data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. 

Third-party services

The person responsible for the processing has integrated contents, services and performances of other providers on the website. These include, for example, maps provided by Google Maps, videos from YouTube and graphics and images from other websites. In order for this data to be called up and displayed in the user’s browser, the transmission of the IP address is absolutely necessary. The providers (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) thus perceive the IP address of the respective user. 

Even if we make every effort to use only third party providers who only need the IP address to deliver content, we have no influence on whether the IP address may be stored. In this case, this process serves statistical purposes, among others. If we are aware that the IP address is being stored, we will inform our users accordingly.

1. Use of Facebook

The data controller has integrated Facebook components on this website.
Facebook is a social network. A social network is an Internet-based social meeting place, an online community that usually enables users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences or enables the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Facebook enables users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friend requests, among other things. 

The operating company of Facebook is
Facebook Inc.
1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA

If a data subject lives outside the USA or Canada, the data controller for processing personal data is
Facebook Ireland Ltd.
4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland 

Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Facebook component to download a representation of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook. A complete overview of all Facebook plug-inscan be found here.
As part of this technical process, Facebook obtains information about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned.
If the person concerned is logged into Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes which specific page of our website the person concerned is visiting each time the person visits our website and for the entire duration of that person’s stay on our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the person concerned. If the data subject clicks on one of the Facebook buttons integrated into our website, such as the “Like” button, or if the data subject comments, Facebook assigns this information to the data subject’s personal Facebook user account and stores this personal data. 

Facebook receives information through the Facebook component that the individual concerned has visited our website whenever the individual concerned is logged into Facebook at the same time as accessing our website, regardless of whether the individual concerned clicks on the Facebook component or not. If the person concerned does not want this information to be transmitted to Facebook in this way, they can prevent it from being transmitted by logging out of their Facebook account before accessing our website. Facebook’s published data policy provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains which settings Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the person concerned. In addition, various applications are available that make it possible to suppress data transmission to Facebook. Such applications can be used by the data subject to suppress data transmission to Facebook.

2. Use of Instagram

The data controller has integrated components of the Instagram service on this website. Instagram is a service that qualifies as an audio visual platform that enables users to share photos and videos and also to disseminate such data on other social networks. 

The operating company of Instagram’s services is
Instagram LLC
1 HackerWay, Building 14 First Floor, Menlo Park, CA, USA

Each time one of the individual pages of this Internet site is called, operated by the data controller and on which an Instagram component (Instabutton) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Instagram component to download a representation of the corresponding Instagram component. As part of this technical process, Instagram obtains knowledge of which specific page of our website is visited by the person concerned. 

If the person concerned is logged in to Instagram at the same time, Instagram recognizes which specific page the person concerned is visiting each time the person visits our website and for the entire duration of that persons stays on our website. This information is collected by the Instagram component and mapped by Instagram to the Instagram account of the person concerned. If the data subject clicks on one of the Instagram buttons integrated into our website, the data and information transmitted will be assigned to the personal Instagram user account of the data subject and stored and processed by Instagram. 

Instagram receives information from the Instagram component that the person concerned has visited our website whenever they are logged into Instagram at the same time as they visit our website, regardless of whether or not they click on the Instagram component. If the person concerned does not want Instagram to receive such information, they can prevent the transmission by logging out of their Instagram account before accessing our website. For more information and to review Instagram’s current privacy practices, please visit Instagram Privacy Policy.

3. Use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)

The data controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data about the behavior of visitors to Internet sites. A web analysis service collects data on, among other things, from which website a person concerned has accessed a website (so-called referrers), which subpages of the website have been accessed or how often and for how long a subpage has been viewed. A web analysis is mainly used for the optimization of a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising. 

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is
Google Inc
1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA

The data controller uses the addition “_gat._anonymizeIp” for the web analysis via Google Analytics. This addition is used by Google to shorten and anonymise the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned if access to our Internet pages is from a Member State of the European Union or from another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. 

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us showing the activities on our website and to provide other services in connection with the use of our website.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is able to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission statements. 

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may share this personal information collected through the technical process with third parties. 

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs. 

Furthermore, it is possible for the person concerned to object to and prevent the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google. For this purpose, the person concerned must download and install a browser add-on. This browser add-on tells Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about visits to Internet pages may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered by Google as a contradiction. If the data subject’s information technology system is later deleted, for matted or reinstalled, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on in order to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the person concerned or by another person within his/her sphere of control, the browser add-on can be reinstalled or reactivated. 

Further information and Google’s applicable privacy policy can be found here and here. Google Analytics is explained here in more detail.

4. Use of Google AdWords

The person responsible for the processing has integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to serve ads both in Google’s search engine results and on the Google advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to pre-define keywords that will be used to display an ad in Google’s search engine results only when the user uses the search engine to retrieve a keyword relevant search result. In the Google advertising network, the ads are distributed to relevant Internet sites using an automatic algorithm and in accordance with the keywords defined beforehand. 

The company operating the Google AdWords services is
Google Inc
1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA 

The purpose of Google AdWords is to promote our website by displaying advertisements of interest on the websites of third parties and in the search results of the Google search engine and by displaying third-party advertisements on our website. 

If a person concerned reaches our website via a Google advertisement, a so-called conversion cookie is stored on the information technology system of the person concerned by Google. What cookies are has already been explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and does not serve to identify the person concerned. If the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion cookie is used to track whether certain subpages, such as the shopping cart of an online shop system, have been accessed on our website. Through the conversion cookie, both we and Google can track whether a person who came to our website via an AdWords ad generated a turnover, i.e. completed or cancelled a purchase of goods.
The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to compile visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are in turn used by us to determine the total number of users who were referred to us via AdWords ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of the respective AdWords ad and to optimise our AdWords ads for the future. Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive any information from Google that could identify the individual concerned. 

The conversion cookie is used to store personal information, such as the Internet pages visited by the person concerned. Accordingly, each time you visit our website, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may share this personal information collected through the technical process with third parties. 

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google fromsetting a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the personconcerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
Furthermore, the person concerned has the opportunity to object to the interest-related advertising by Google. To do this, the person concerned must access this link from any of the Internet browsers they use and make the desired settings there.

5. Use of web fonts

External fonts, Google Fonts, are used on these Internet pages. Google Fonts is a service of Google Inc. (“Google”). The integration of these Web Fonts takes place by a server call, usually a server of Google in the USA. This will tell the server which of our Internet pages you have visited. The IP address of the browser of the terminal device of the visitor to these internet pages is also stored by Google. For more information, please refer to Google’s privacy policy.

6. Use of Amazon partner program

We are members of the Amazon EU Affiliate Program, which is designed to provide a medium for websites through which to place advertisements and links to [please insert here the appropriate name of the website (Amazon.co.uk /Javari.co.uk / Local.Amazon.co.uk / Amazon.de / Javari.de / Javari.BuyVIP.com /Amazon.fr / Javari.fr / Amazon.it / it.BuyVIP.com / Amazon.es / es.BuyVIP.com)].advertising reimbursement can be earned.

For more information about Amazon’s use of data, please see the company’s privacy statement.

7. Use of Google Tag Manager

We have integrated Google Tag Manager on our website. With the Google Tag Manager, marketers can manage website tags through a single interface. However, the Tag Manager itself, which uses the tags, works without cookies and does not collect any personal data. The Tag Manager simply triggers other tags that may themselves collect data. For these respective third-party providers, corresponding explanations can be found in this data protection declaration. The Google Tag Manager does not use this data. If you have set cookies to be disabled or otherwise enabled cookies, this will be applied to all tracking tags used with the Google Tag Manager, so the tool will not change your cookie settings. 

Google may ask your permission to share some product information (such as your account information) with other Google products to enable certain features, such as simplifying the addition of new conversion tracking tags for AdWords. In addition, Google’s developers review product usage information from time to time to further optimize the product. However, Google will never share this type of information with other Google products without your consent. 

For more information, please see Google’s Terms of Use.

Data protection for applications and in theapplication process

We collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application process. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits corresponding application documents to us electronically, for example by e-mail via a web form on the website. If we conclude an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If we do not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests on our part are opposed to 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).
