Usage-oriented data

Every web server automatically registers the access to websites. When visiting our homepage our web server will temporarily save every access in a log file (Server-Logfiles). The following data will be recorded and saved until the automatic deletion.

  • IP-address of the requesting computer
  • date and time of access
  • name and URL of accessed file
  • volume of data transmitted
  • notification whether file access was successful
  • identification data of used browser and operating system
  • website from which access was obtained
  • name of your internet access provider


The processing of this data allows for the use of the website (connection setup) and provides system security, technical administration of the network infrastructure, as well as optimization of internet services.

Our webserver is configured by default so that all log files are automatically deleted every 14 days. However, we reserve the right to occasionally extend the storage time (manually) or individual IP addresses (manually or automatically) if this is deemed necessary for justifiable security reasons.

Recipient of data is our webhosting provider. Transmission of data to a third country will not take place. The basis for data processing is article 6 paragraph 1 lit. b DSGVO (General Data Protection Regulation) which allows for the processing of data in order to fulfil a contract or pre-contract measures.


Gift voucher shop – contact form

If you are sending enquiries by contacting our gift voucher shop, your data listed in the request form to include all of the contact data listed therein will be stored by us in order to process the request and in case of follow-up questions.

We will use the data for the purposes listed in the consent statement and store them in accordance with the statutory storage period. Further usage of the data obtained from the contact form will only be used anonymously for statistical reasons (e.g. number of requests, etc.).

The processing of data entered in the contact form is implemented exclusively on the basis of your consent (article 6 paragraph lit a DSGVO).


Data protection for applications and with reference to application procedures

The person responsible for the processing collects and processes the applicants’ personal data for the purpose of executing the application procedure. Processing may also be effected electronically. This is especially the case if an applicant electronically transmits the respective application documents to the person responsible for the processing, such as via e-mail or via a web form on the website. If the person responsible for the processing concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored in compliance with the statutory regulations for the purpose of executing the employment relationship. If the person responsible for the processing doesn’t conclude an employment contract with an applicant, then the application documents are automatically deleted 6 months after announcing the decision to reject the application, provided the person responsible for the processing doesn’t have other legitimate interests standing in the way of the deletion.

Other justified interests to this effect is for instance the burden of proof in a proceeding in accordance with the provisions of the General Equal Treatment Act (GETA).


Contents and services of third party providers

The offer on our website may also include contents and services provided by other providers supplementing our offer. Examples for such offers are maps from Google-Maps, YouTube-Videos or third party graphic displays. Calling up the third party services requires the transmission of your IP address. This enables these providers to seize and store your IP address. We make every effort to only offer third party providers who will use the IP address solely to deliver the contents. However, we have no influence on which third party provider may possibly store the IP address.

This storage could serve e.g. statistical purposes. If we obtain knowledge of such storage processes by third party providers we will immediately inform our users of this fact. In this respect please observe the special data protection declaration with reference to individual third party providers and service providers which we use on our website.
