Vimeo 

Our WebSite uses plug-ins from the video portal Vimeo. Provider is Vimeo Inc. 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA. 

When you visit one of our sites embedding a Vimeo video, a connection to the Vimeo servers will be established. This tells the Vimeo server which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged in as a member of Vimeo during this, Vimeo will assign this information to your personal user account. When you click the start button of a video, this information may also be assigned to an existing user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your Vimeo user account before you use our WebSite and deleting the corresponding cookies set by Vimeo. Vimeo also obtains your IP address. This also applies if you are not logged in to Vimeo or do not have a Vimeo account. The information collected by Vimeo is transferred to the Vimeo servers located in the USA. 

For more information about how Vimeo handles user data, please see the Vimeo privacy policy at: https://vimeo.com/privacy

We use this service on our WebSite based on a legitimate interest - in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online services. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. 

You can also prevent Vimeo from loading by changing your browser settings (deactivating JavaScript and iFrames). 

 

reCaptcha v3 

We use the open source technology reCaptcha v3 on our website, provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, California 94043 United States. 

This service helps our website prevent spam and block bots. The program determines whether the user is a real person or a bot to protect our website from cyber attacks. 

ReCaptcha v3 works with an algorithm that collects and analyzes a user's interactions with a website to create a score. The final score indicates whether the activity is suspicious. This version aims to reduce "user friction" by eliminating the need for questions and creating a seamless user experience. 

The following data is processed by reCaptcha: Mouse and keyboard behavior (any action you perform with the mouse or keyboard), info about your operating system, date and language settings of your browser, Google-Cookies placed on the website, your answers to the question fields on the website, referrer URL (through which website/advertising medium you arrived at this website), CSS information, any JavaScript objects, screen resolution and plug-ins installed in your browser. The algorithm also recognizes IP addresses that were previously recognized as human through cookies. 

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is the fulfillment of our legal obligation regarding the obtaining of consent and its verifiability according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. In addition, there is a legitimate interest in the use of Google reCaptcha to optimize and increase the security of the online service, the legal basis of which is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.

Social Shares 

On our websites in our job ads, social shares come from the social networks "LinkedIn" (provider: LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, California 94043, USA), "XING" (provider: Xing AG, Gänsemarkt 43, 20354 Hamburg, Germany) and “Facebook” (provider: Meta Platforms, Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, California 94304, USA) on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. For data protection reasons, we have deliberately decided against using direct plug-ins from social networks. Therefore, when you call up our websites, no data is automatically transmitted to the above-mentioned social networks. Only when you yourself actively click on the respective button (i.e. the LinkedIn, Xing or Facebook logo) will your Internet browser establish a connection to the servers of the respective social network. If you follow the links while visiting our website and are logged in to LinkedIn, Xing or Facebook via your personal user account, the information that you have visited our website may be forwarded to the operator of the respective social network. In this case, LinkedIn, Xing or Facebook can assign your visit to our website to your user account. If you do not want social networks to associate your visit to our website with your user account, you must log out of these social networks before visiting our website. 

Please note that we have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted (personal) data or its use by LinkedIn, Xing or Facebook.
