Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those listed below. We will only disclose your personal data to third parties if:

  • you have given your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR,

If the controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions.

We may take your comments and ratings as an opportunity to respond to them with our own comments. For this purpose, we make use of our legitimate interest in interacting with active users of our profile (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR)

Further information can be provided voluntarily, in particular options for contacting us outside of social media. Data processing for the purpose of contacting us is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR on the basis of your voluntarily given consent.

When you visit our social media profile, the provider collects, among other things, your IP address and other information that is stored on your PC in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us, as the operator of the social media profile, with statistical information about the use of the website.

The way in which the providers use the data from visits to social media profiles for their own purposes, the extent to which activities on the websites are assigned to individual users, how long this data is stored and whether data is passed on to third parties is not conclusively and clearly stated and is not known to us. When you access a social media profile, the IP address assigned to your end device is transmitted to the provider. This may enable the provider to assign IP addresses to individual users.

This enables the provider to track that you have visited this page and how you have used it. If you want to avoid this, you should log out of the respective social media provider or deactivate the "stay logged in" function, delete the cookies on your device and close and restart your browser.
