c) Contacting us


If you contact us, we will process the following data you have provided to us in order to respond to and process your enquiry: Name, contact details – if you have provided them – and your enquiry.

The legal basis for processing this data is primarily section 26 BDSG. This provision permits data to be processed that is required in connection with a decision to establish an employment relationship.

Should this data be necessary for the pursuit of legal rights after completion of the application process, data processing may be carried out in the pursuit of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, namely for purposes of asserting and/or defending against legal claims.


e) Contract performance and data management within the framework of service provision


We process a variety of data within the scope of our service provision and in the context of initiating and performing the contractual relationship between you and us.


If you have engaged us to provide a service, we will process your data (if provided: name, contact details, address) and all information required for the fulfilment of the contract, exclusively for the purpose of processing and performing the contractual relationship.


This includes, without limitation, our appropriate advice and support, correspondence with you, billing, satisfaction of our accounting and tax-related obligations.


Data processing is performed accordingly on the basis of Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR and for purposes of fulfilling our legal obligations according to Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR.

Where we are subject to a relevant legal obligation, the processing of data will include the disclosure of the data to the supervisory authorities for the purpose of correspondence as well as the assertion and defence of your rights.


f) ‘Cookiebot’ consent banner


We use the service ‘Cookiebot’, Cybot A/S in order to document your selection for certain data processing procedures where cookies are used and to communicate with the respective third-party providers in case of your consent. Havnegade 39, 1058 Copenhagen, Denmark (hereinafter referred to as ‘Cybot’).


The following data is automatically logged at Cybot when you make a selection regarding the cookie to be used via the available Cookie Consent:


  • The end user’s IP number in anonymous form (the last three digits are set to ‘0’).
  • Date and time of consent.
  • The end user’s browser user agent.
  • The URL from which the consent was sent.
  • An anonymous, random and encrypted key.
  • The end user’s consent status which serves as proof of consent.

The key is used to verify your consent or settings and provides an option to verify whether the consent status stored in your browser is unchanged compared to the original consent sent to Cybot.

The processing of this data is performed in order to satisfy our legal obligation to lawfully process data in accordance with Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR.

We use strictly necessary cookies to ensure proper functioning of our website. For example, these cookies make it possible to navigate our website or to provide other basic functions on the website.

In addition, we use optional cookies that provide additional information to us, for example to analyse data traffic or for advertising and marketing purposes.



The cookies we use remain on your device for different times that vary in length.

Permanent cookies: These cookies remain on your device even after you close your web browser and enable us, for example, to recognise you when you next visit our website.


Cookie providers

Cookies that we set directly are called first-party cookies. By contrast, third-party cookies are set by third-party websites, for example in order to display content (advertisements, images, tracking pixels, etc.).

You may find details about the cookies we use in our Cookie Settings.


We use Google Analytics with the extension ‘anonymizeIp()’. IP addresses within the member states of the EU or EEA are shortened as a result.

  • The web page viewed
  • The website from which the user reached the page accessed on our website (referrer)
  • The sub-pages accessed via the website
  • Length of stay on the website
  • Frequency of visits to the website

The legal basis for processing this data is your prior consent pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR.

You may withdraw your consent at any time with future effect by changing settings available under or by clicking the following opt-out link:

The same applies if you would like us to restrict the processing of your data in future. Without limitation, you have right to object in cases where your data is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest, or in pursuit of our legitimate interests or in cases based on profiling.
