Nature and scope of processing
If you send us inquiries (e.g. via contact form, e-mail or telephone), we store all data resulting from this (e.g. name, e-mail address, subject of inquiry, etc.). We need this data to process your request and to be able to answer follow-up questions. We do not share this data without your consent.
Purpose and legal basis
The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, provided that your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures. Otherwise, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective handling of requests addressed to us (Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO) or on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO) if you have given it beforehand.
The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

If it is evident that the data will be required after the 6-month period has expired (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), the data will not be deleted until the purpose for continued storage no longer applies.
Inclusion in the applicant pool
As part of the application process, we offer applicants the opportunity to be included in our “talent pool” for a period of 12 months on the basis of consent within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a. GDPR to be included.
The application documents in the talent pool are processed solely in the context of future job postings and employee searches and are destroyed at the latest after the deadline.
