Please note that on this website, Google Analytics code is supplemented by "gat._anonymizeIp();” to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses (so called IP-masking). (Source: www.datenschutzbeauftragter-info.de)

Furthermore each Web server automatically registers the access to Web sites. When visiting our Web site, our Web server temporarily records the domain name or IP address of the computer making the request, as well as the access date, the filename and the URL you accessed, the HTTP response code and the Web site from which you visit us, as well as the bytes transferred during the connection. This is done for the purpose of system security. This information is stored anonymously and no one can derive any information about your identity or personal behavior.

Personal data beyond that scope is not collected unless such information is explicitly provided by you in the context of registration. We handle your data in a responsible manner and in accordance with the legal requirements.

Use of Data

We store computer-related data in order to record trends and compile statistics. This stored data also serves to identify and trace unauthorized attempts to access our Web server. We only compile anonymous profile information about the use of our Web site, and we do so only to improve the navigation structure and to optimize our offerings to match user interests. No personal surfing profiles or the like are created or processed from such data. The IP-address, that your Browser conveys within the scope of Google Analytics, will not be associated with any other data held by Google.

We collect, store and process your submitted personal data to provide you with information about current and future offerings of our recruitment services, such as interesting vacancies and project opportunities. In addition, we collect, store, and process your submitted personal data only insofar as this is necessary for the processing of other requests or completing tasks and assignments. To facilitate these tasks, it may be necessary for us to exchange your data with third parties involved in recruitment and the carrying out of these tasks and enquiries. Moreover, we will not pass on your personal data to third parties, unless we are legally obligated to do so or because you yourself have indicated you would like us to do so.

We would be delighted to inform you about our services and it is possible that we may want to survey you about them. Provided you don't object, we may therefore generate user profiles under pseudonyms for the purposes of market research or advertising, or to better align our services with our clients' needs.

The personal data you transmit to us (for example: your name and your address or e-mail address) is only used for correspondence with you or for purposes for which you make this data available to us. Here, too, we would like to use your address details to occasionally inform you about our products, services, as well as changes and improvements.

Using your transmitted data, we may also contact you electronically or by phone as part of a survey about customer satisfaction, or for market research and advertising purposes.


In order to better align our Web site with your needs and to gather certain information, we use different technologies, including so-called "cookies." Cookies serve to simplify the use of the Internet as well as communication.

Cookies are small text files (max. size 4KB) that our Web site sends to your browser. They are stored on your PC as an anonymous identifier. The purpose of these cookies includes, among other things, better control of the connection during your visit to our Web site and more effective support when you return to our Web site. Without this temporary "intermediate storage," previously input data would have to be reentered in some applications. A cookie only contains the data that is given by a server and/or data that is entered by the user upon request (for example, structure: information on domain, path, expiration date, cookie name and value). Thus, they only contain technical information, no personal data. A cookie cannot spy out a hard drive.

If you wish, you can generally set your Web browser to disable cookies or to notify you before you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. However, the non-acceptance of cookies may result in some pages not being displayed properly.
