Your visit to our website is recorded. We generally collect the following data that your browser sends to us:
This data is only collected for the purposes of data security, improving our website offer and analysing errors on the basis of Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR. The IP address of your PC is only analysed in anonymised form (shortened by the last three digits). In all other respects, you are able to visit our website without providing information on your identity.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (such as E-Mail communication) is subject to security vulnerabilities. It is not possible to completely protect data from access by third parties. Confidential data should therefore be sent to us by other means, such as by mail.
The data processor collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of conducting the application process. Processing may also take place electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant transmits corresponding application documents electronically to the data processor, such as by E-Mail or using an online form on the website. Should the data processor conclude an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data shall be stored for the purpose of executing the employment relationship in accordance with statutory provisions. If the data processor does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents shall be deleted following the staffing of the vacancy in accordance with statutory provisions, provided such deletion is not opposed by any other legitimate interests of the data processor. Other legitimate interests in this sense includes, for example, evidence in a proceeding according to the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
We can only process applications that are sent to the E-Mail address: “firstname.lastname@example.org”, either directly or through the AOE Job Application Portal. Applications sent via this portal are sent to a separate mailbox to which only selected users have access. Should you use a different E-Mail address belonging to our company, your application will unfortunately not be recognized by our systems and will not therefore be taken into consideration. Please consider that E-Mail is not a secure means of communication. Should your application reach our server via the above-mentioned E-Mail address, we will protect your application with suitable technical and organisational measures. We have no influence on data protection while your application is transmitted to our company via the public Internet and we are not therefore able to guarantee the level of protection for your application. Should your dispatching E-Mail server support STARTTLS, our E-Mail server will also support STARTTLS and thus offer transport encryption.
Personal data (such as your name, address data or contact details) which you voluntarily disclose to us, for example in connection with a request or otherwise, will be stored by us and only processed for correspondence with you and only for the purpose for which you have provided us with this data.
