Collection, processing, and use of personal data
Access data/server log files
We automatically collect and store in our log files the information automatically provided by your internet browser. This includes:
- Browser type / version,
- operating system used,
- referrer URL (the previously visited website)
- the host name of the accessing computer (IP address)
- the time of the server request
- the amount of data transferred
- report as to whether the access attempt was successful.
Users’ IP addresses will be erased or anonymised after cessation of use. In the case that the IP addresses are anonymised, they are changed in such a way that details of personal or material circumstances can no longer only be associated with an identified or identifiable natural person or can only be associated with an identified or identifiable natural person with a disproportionate investment of time, cost, and labour. The data in the log files are analysed by us in anonymous form in order to further improve the website, make it more user-friendly, and find and correct errors more quickly. In addition, they are used to control server capacities so that appropriate data volumes can be made available if necessary.
If you contact us using the form on the website or at firstname.lastname@example.org, we will store the data you provide for the purpose of processing the request and in case of follow-up questions. We do not share this data without your permission. You may unsubscribe from these communications at any time.
Disclosure of data to third parties
The data collected by us will only be passed on to third parties if this is necessary for the purpose of contract processing or invoicing or if you have given your prior consent. The data shared in this way may only be used by our service providers to fulfil their task. These providers have been carefully selected and commissioned by us in writing. They are bound by our instructions and are regularly checked by us. Any other use of the information is not permitted and also does not occur on the part of the service providers entrusted by us.
Job offers and online applications
We advertise job offers on our website with the option of sending us an application to email@example.com. If you apply for an advertised position, your data will only be collected and processed by us as part of the application process. The data will be stored in our Applicant Tracking System and deleted by us once the vacancy has been filled, unless legal requirements require longer storage. You have expressly agreed to longer storage in the event that a position is to be filled again later, or we conclude an employment contract with you, in which case the data will be stored by us in the personnel file and for processing payroll accounting in compliance with the statutory data protection requirements. You have the “right to be forgotten” and can ask us to delete and stop processing your data at any time.

We use the provider Vimeo to integrate videos. Vimeo is operated by Vimeo, LLC, headquartered at 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011. We use plug-ins from Vimeo on some of our pages. When you access the pages on our website that have these plug-ins, a connection to the Vimeo servers is established and the plug-in is displayed. The plug-in then transmits information about which of our pages you have visited to the Vimeo server. If you are logged in as a member of Vimeo, Vimeo will assign this information to your personal user account. When using the plug-in, such as by clicking the start button of a video, this information is also assigned to your user account. You can prevent the information being assigned to your account by logging out of your Vimeo account and deleting the corresponding Vimeo cookies before using our website.
