General information and mandatory information
Designation of the responsible body
The responsible body for data processing on this website is:
Carsten A. Tönne
Im MediaPark 5b
50670 Cologne, Germany
The responsible body decides alone or jointly with others on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, contact details, etc.).
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Some data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. A revocation of your already given consent is possible at any time. An informal notification by e-mail is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right of complaint to the responsible supervisory authority
In the event of a breach of data protection law, you as the party concerned have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority with regard to data protection issues is the data protection officer of the federal state in which our company has its registered office. The following link provides a list of data protection officers and their contact details: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html (opens in new window/tab).
Right to data transferability
You have the right to have data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to third parties. The information is provided in a machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to third party, this will only be done as far as it is technically feasible.
Right to information, correction, blocking, deletion
You have the right to free information about your stored personal data, the origin of the data, its recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, the right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data at any time within the framework of the applicable statutory provisions. In this regard and also for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time via the contact options listed in the imprint.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content that you send to us as the site operator, our website uses SSL or TLS encryption. This means that data that you transmit via this website cannot be read by third parties. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the “https://” in the address line of your browser and by the lock symbol in the browser line.
Data Protection Officer
We have appointed a data protection officer:
Carsten A. Tönne
Im MediaPark 5b
Phone: +49 (0) 221 643075-0
Server log files
In server log files, the provider of the website automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- Visited page on our domain
- Date and time of the server request
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Hostname of the accessing computer
- IP address pseudonymized
The server log files are stored for a maximum of 4 days and then deleted. The storage of the data is done for security reasons for example to clarify cases of abuse. If data must be revoked for reasons of proof, they are excluded from the deletion until the incident has been definitively clarified.
These data are not merged with other data sources. The data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
Data transmitted via the contact form will be stored including your contact data in order to be able to process your request or to be available for follow-up questions. These data will not be passed on without your consent.
The data entered in the contact form will be processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). A revocation of your already given consent is possible at any time. An informal notification by e-mail is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Data transmitted via the contact form will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage or until data storage is no longer necessary. Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

Google Web Fonts
Our website uses web fonts from Google. Provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
By using these web fonts it will be possible for us to present you with the desired display of our website, regardless of which fonts are available to you locally. This is done by retrieving the Google Web Fonts from a Google server in the USA and the associated transfer of your data to Google. This is your IP address and which page you have visited on our website. The use of Google Web Fonts is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in the optimal presentation and transmission of our website.
The company Google is certified for the US-European data protection agreement “Privacy Shield”. This data protection agreement is intended to ensure compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU.
On our website we use Google Maps to display our location and to create a route description. This is a service of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as Google only.
By the certification after the EU-US data protection sign (“EU-US Privacy Shield”, opens in new window/tab) Google guarantees that the data protection defaults of the EU are kept also with the processing of data in the USA.
When Google Maps is used, Google also collects, processes and uses data on the use of the map functions by visitors. You can find more detailed information about data processing by Google in the Google data protection information (http://www.google.com/privacypolicy.html opens in new window/tab). There you can also change your personal data protection settings in the data protection centre.
Detailed instructions for the administration of your own data in connection with Google products can be found here: http://www.dataliberation.org (opens in new window/tab).
Through the established connection to Google, Google can determine which website has sent your request and to which IP address the route description is to be sent.
If you do not agree with this processing, you have the option of preventing the installation of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your Internet browser.
The legal basis for the integration of Google Maps into our website is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in optimizing the functionality of our website.
Applications with the “Prescreen” service (data processor)
We process personal data about you for the purpose of your application for employment to the extent necessary to decide whether to enter into an employment relationship with us. The legal basis is § 26 Abs. 1 i.V.m Abs. 8 S. 2 BDSG.
Furthermore, we may process personal data about you to the extent necessary to defend against legal claims asserted against us in the application process. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1, letter f DSGVO; the legitimate interest is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (“Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz” – AGG). If there is an employment relationship between you and us, we may further process the personal data already received from you for the purposes of the employment relationship in accordance with § 26 para. 1 BDSG if this is necessary for the performance or termination of the employment relationship or for the exercise or fulfilment of the rights and obligations of the representation of the interests of the employees resulting from a law or a collective agreement, a works agreement or a service agreement (collective agreement).
We process data related to your application. This may include general information about you (such as your name, address and contact details), information about your professional qualifications and schooling or information about professional development or other information you provide to us in connection with your application. In addition, we may process job-related information made publicly available by you, such as a profile on professional social media networks. We may transfer your personal data to companies affiliated with us, insofar as this is permissible within the framework of the stated purposes and legal bases. In addition, personal data is processed on our behalf on the basis of contracts pursuant to Art. 28 DSGVO, in particular by host providers or providers of applicant management systems.
We will store your personal data for as long as is necessary to make a decision on your application. If an employment relationship between you and us is not established, we may also further store data to the extent necessary to defend against possible legal claims. The application documents will be deleted six months after notification of the rejection decision, unless longer storage is necessary due to legal disputes. With your separate consent, we will store your data for up to 12 months from the date of your consent in order to be able to consider your application again, if necessary, for any jobs that may be considered later.
The provision of personal data is neither legally nor contractually prescribed, nor are you obliged to provide the personal data. However, the provision of personal information is necessary to enter into an employment contract with us. This means that unless you provide us with personal information in an application, we will not enter into an employment relationship with you.
There is no automated decision in individual cases within the meaning of Art. 22 DSGVO, i.e. the decision on your application is not based exclusively on automated processing.
