dd) Google Analytics

All currently used non-necessary cookies activate certain functions of Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited. (Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland). We use Google Analytics to analyze and regularly improve the use of our website. The statistics obtained enable us to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. Our website also uses Google Analytics for a cross-device analysis of visitor flows, which is carried out via a user ID. The data collected may be transferred to a server in the USA or other third countries where an adequate level of data protection cannot be guaranteed. Further information on the scope of data collection and the use of collected data when using Google Analytics can be found here: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de .

By enabling analysis cookies, and thus Google Analytics in the cookie banner, you consent to data processing by Google on our behalf. You can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future by deactivating analysis cookies in the cookie banner.

This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. This means that IP addresses are processed in abbreviated form, which means that personal references can be ruled out. If the data collected about you is related to a person, this is immediately excluded, and the personal data is deleted immediately.

The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR (your consent).

Further information on how cookies work and how personal data is processed when using Google Analytics can be found here:

ee) Withdrawal of your consent by switching off the cookies

You can withdraw your consent to processing by the non-necessary cookies you have activated at any time by clicking on “Cookie settings” in the footer of our website to call up the cookie banner again and deactivate the cookies you do not want there. No more data will then be collected via the cookies that have been switched off. The legality of the data processing up to the deactivation remains unaffected by this.

You must save the cookie setting by clicking on “Save & Accept” so that this setting is also retained when you visit the website again and does not have to be made again. The setting is saved by means of a consent management cookie, which is activated by default as a necessary cookie on our website and “remembers” your cookie setting.  You can “delete” the cookie setting by, among other things, reloading the page. We would like to point out that if you do not activate certain cookies, you may not be able to use all the functions of our website. 

d) Social media

We use buttons on our site that take you to our pages on LinkedIn. The data protection notices of the respective providers apply there.

If you are logged in to your LinkedIn account and visit our pages, data may also be transferred to the USA, where an adequate level of data protection is not guaranteed.

Addresses of the provider and further information on data protection can be found here: LinkedIn Inc., 1000 W Maude Sunnyvale, CA 94085, USA; LinkedIn Privacy Policy

e) Github

On our website you will find a button that links to the developer portal of Github (github.com) and our account there. Clicking on it opens a new window of the provider. For further use of the Github page, the data protection information there applies. The address of the provider and further information on data protection can be found here:

4. Purpose of the processing and legal basis

We process personal data in accordance with the provisions of the European Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).

a)   For the fulfilment of contractual obligations (Art. 6 para. 1 b) GDPR)

The processing of data is carried out for the provision of our contractual services, but also for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, which are carried out at your request, for example, for the preparation and dispatch of offers and to respond to enquiries.

b) In connection with a job application (Section 26 BDSG)

If you apply (online) to us for a job, we process your application data as part of the application process to decide on possible employment.

c) Within the framework of the balancing of interests (Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR)

Beyond the use for the actual performance of the contract, it may be necessary to process your data to protect the legitimate interests of us or third parties, e.g. to

  • Optimisation of the content and advertising on our website
  • Ensuring the IT security of our system
  • Assertion of legal claims and defence in legal disputes

d) Based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 a) GDPR)

In individual cases, we require your consent for the processing of your data (see, for example, point 3 c) above). In this respect, processing only takes place if you have expressly given this consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. The revocation does not affect the lawfulness of the processing prior to receipt of the revocation.

e) To fulfil legal obligations (Art. 6 para. 1 c) GDPR)

The law obliges us in certain cases to process personal data (for documentation purposes, for example).

5. Recipient(s) of the data

As a matter of principle, we do not transfer your personal data to third parties. This only happens if and insofar as this is necessary within the framework of the processing of a contract or is required by law or official regulations. Otherwise, the data will only be transferred if you have expressly consented to the transfer in the individual case. Your data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent – for example for advertising purposes.

6. Transfer of data to a third country

As a matter of principle, we do not transfer personal data to recipients based outside the EU and the EEA. If this is exceptionally necessary (e.g. in the context of projects with customers based in a third country), we will inform you in advance and obtain your consent for this (e.g. when using Google Analytics – see above). Beyond this, a transfer is only permitted in accordance with Art. 44 et seq. GDPR.

7. Duration of the storage

We generally store your data for as long as the storage is required for the fulfilment of contractual and legal obligations. If the data is no longer required for this purpose, it is regularly deleted.

We delete data that you send us in the context of enquiries as soon as the enquiry has been dealt with and the data is no longer required for a subsequent procedure (e.g. order).

We delete data that you send us as part of an application no later than 6 months after a negative decision. Only with your consent will the data remain stored in our applicants list for longer.

Data will not be deleted insofar as and as long as
– commercial and tax law retention obligations conflict with this,
– data must be retained to prove claims arising from the contractual relationship,
– within the framework of the regular limitation period (3 years, § 195 BGB).

Insofar as deletion does not take place in accordance with the above sentence, the data shall be blocked.

8. Security of your data

We take all reasonable technical and organisational measures to ensure the protection of your data.

9. Your data protection rights

As a “data subject” you have
– the right to information under Article 15 GDPR,
– the right to rectification under Article 16 GDPR
– the right to erasure under Article 17 GDPR
– the right to restriction of processing under Article 18 GDPR
– the right to object under Article 21 GDPR and
– the right to data portability under Article 20 GDPR.

The restrictions according to §§ 34 and 35 BDSG apply to the right to information and the right to deletion. You also have the right to complain to a competent data protection authority, e.g. the Berliner Beauftragte für Datenschutz und Informationsfreiheit, (Art. 77 GDPR in conjunction with § 19 BDSG).

10. Obligation to provide data

You are not legally obliged to provide us with data. If you contact us by e-mail, we need your e-mail address and, if applicable, your name in order to answer your enquiry and to be able to contact you. If you apply to us for a job, in addition to your name and address, we need a CV and the usual application documents with data about your training. Without this data, it is not possible for us to reply to you or conclude a contract with you.
