The use of Hostingwerk is based on Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in ensuring the reliable presentation of our website. If the corresponding consent has been obtained, the processing is carried out exclusively based on Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR and § 25(1) of the TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information on the user's device (e.g., device fingerprinting) within the meaning of the TTDSG. The consent can be revoked at any time.

General Information on the Legal Bases for Data Processing on this Website
Notice Regarding Data Transfer to the USA and Other Third Countries
We use tools from companies based in the USA or other data protectionally unsafe third countries, among other things. When these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to and processed in these third countries. Please note that in these countries, a level of data protection comparable to that of the EU cannot be guaranteed. For example, US companies are obligated to disclose personal data to security authorities without you as a data subject being able to take legal action against it. It is therefore not possible to rule out the possibility that US authorities (e.g., intelligence agencies) may process, analyze, and permanently store your data located on US servers for surveillance purposes. We have no influence over these processing activities.
Revocation of Your Consent to Data Processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke your consent that has already been given at any time. The legality of the data processing carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to Object to Data Collection in Special Cases and to Direct Marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)
IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS PROCESSED FOR DIRECT MARKETING PURPOSES, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA CONCERNING YOU FOR SUCH MARKETING, INCLUDING PROFILING RELATED TO SUCH DIRECT MARKETING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21(2) GDPR).
Right to Lodge a Complaint with the Supervisory Authority
In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, place of work, or the place of the alleged infringement. The right to lodge a complaint exists without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right to Data Portability
You have the right to receive data that we process automatically based on your consent or in fulfillment of a contract in a common, machine-readable format, or have it transferred to yourself or to a third party. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.
Information, Deletion, and Correction
You have the right, in accordance with applicable legal provisions, to obtain free information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipients, and the purpose of data processing, as well as a right to correction or deletion of this data. For this purpose, as well as for any further questions regarding personal data, you can always contact us.
Right to Restriction of Processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. For this purpose, you can always contact us. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the examination, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data was/is unlawful, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it for the exercise, defense, or assertion of legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of erasure.
- If you have objected pursuant to Art. 21(1) GDPR, a balance must be struck between your interests and ours. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
When the processing of your personal data is restricted, aside from their storage, they may only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL/TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from 'http://' to 'https://' and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
When SSL/TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Objection to Promotional Emails
The use of contact data published within the scope of the imprint obligation for sending unsolicited advertising and information materials is hereby rejected. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited sending of promotional information, such as spam emails.
Data Collection on This Website
Our website uses so-called 'cookies.' Cookies are small data packets that do not harm your device. They are either stored temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies) on your device. Session cookies are automatically deleted after your visit ends. Permanent cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them yourself or they are automatically deleted by your web browser.
In some cases, third-party cookies may also be stored on your device when you enter our site (third-party cookies). These cookies enable us or you to use certain services provided by the third-party company (e.g., cookies for payment processing).
Cookies have various functions. Many cookies are technically necessary because certain website functions would not work without them (e.g., the shopping cart function or video playback). Other cookies are used to analyze user behavior or display advertisements.
Cookies that are necessary for carrying out the electronic communication process, providing certain functions you request (e.g., the shopping cart function), or optimizing the website (e.g., cookies for measuring web traffic) are stored based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, unless another legal basis is specified. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing necessary cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. If consent for storing cookies and similar tracking technologies has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively based on this consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR and § 25(1) TTDSG); the consent can be revoked at any time.
You can configure your browser to notify you about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only on a case-by-case basis, accept cookies for certain cases or exclude them altogether, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing your browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.
Server Log Files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Hostname of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
Combining this data with other data sources is not done. The log files are usually deleted after 7 days.
The collection of this data is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimization of its website – for this purpose, the server log files must be recorded
Inquiry by Email, Telephone, or Fax
If you contact us by email, telephone, or fax, your inquiry, including all resulting personal data (name, inquiry), will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of handling your request. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
The processing of this data is based on Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR, provided your inquiry is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the inquiries addressed to us (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR) if this has been requested; the consent can be revoked at any time.
The data you send to us via contact inquiries will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage, or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g., after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.

Handling of Applicant Data
We offer you the opportunity to apply to us (e.g., via email, postal mail, or through an online application form). In the following, we will inform you about the scope, purpose, and use of your personal data collected as part of the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing, and use of your data are carried out in accordance with applicable data protection laws and all other legal regulations, and your data will be treated with the utmost confidentiality.
The extent and purpose of data collection
If you send us an application, we will process the associated personal data (e.g., contact and communication data, application documents, notes from job interviews, etc.) to the extent necessary for making a decision regarding the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is § 26 BDSG under German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO (general contract initiation), and – if you have given your consent – Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO. Consent can be revoked at any time. Your personal data will only be disclosed within our company to individuals who are involved in the processing of your application.
If the application is successful, the data you have submitted will be stored in our data processing systems for the purpose of conducting the employment relationship, based on § 26 BDSG and Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO.
The data retention period
If we cannot offer you a job, you reject a job offer, or you withdraw your application, we reserve the right to retain the data you provided on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR) for up to 6 months after the end of the application process (rejection or withdrawal of the application). Afterward, the data will be deleted, and physical application documents will be destroyed. The retention serves primarily for evidentiary purposes in the event of legal disputes. If it becomes apparent that the data will be required beyond the 6-month period (e.g., due to a pending or imminent legal dispute), deletion will only take place when the purpose for further storage no longer exists.
Longer retention may also occur if you have given your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR) or if statutory retention obligations prevent deletion.
Inclusion in the applicant pool
If we do not offer you a job, there is a possibility of including you in our applicant pool. In the event of inclusion, all documents and information from your application will be transferred to the applicant pool to contact you in case of suitable vacancies.
Inclusion in the applicant pool is done solely based on your explicit consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). Giving consent is voluntary and has no relation to the ongoing application process. The data subject can withdraw their consent at any time. In this case, the data from the applicant pool will be permanently deleted unless there are legal retention reasons.
The data from the applicant pool will be permanently deleted no later than two years after consent has been granted.
