The controller collects and processes the personal data of job applicants for the purpose of running the application procedure. The processing can also be executed by electronic means. This is particularly the case when an applicant transmits the corresponding résumé and references to the controller by electronic means, for example, via e-mail or a contact form on the website.

11. Social media / Google Maps


1. Use of social media plug-ins


(1) We are currently using the following social media plug-ins:

Facebook, Xing, Instagram

We use the so-called two-click solution. This means that when you visit our site, no personal data are initially passed on to the providers of the plug-ins. You can identify the provider of the plug-in by the indication in the box above its initial letters or logo. We give you the opportunity to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in by clicking the button. Only if you click on the marked box, thereby activating it, the plug-in provider will receive the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online offer. In addition, the data mentioned under item 4 of this declaration will be transmitted. In the case of Facebook and Xing, the IP address will be anonymised in Germany immediately after collection, according to the respective providers. By activating the plug-in, your personal data are therefore transmitted to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (with US providers in the USA). Since the plug-in provider collects data via cookies in particular, we recommend that you delete all cookies via your browser’s security settings before clicking on the greyed-out box.

(2) We have no influence on the collected data and data processing procedures, nor are we aware of the full scope of data collection, the purposes of processing and the storage periods. We also have no information about the erasure of the collected data by the plug-in provider.

(3) The plug-in provider stores your collected data as user profiles and uses them for advertising, market research and/or preference-based design of its website. Such an analysis is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide preference-based 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 such user profiles; however, in order to exercise any such right, you have to contact the respective provider of the plug-in.
