4. In detail, what does this mean with regard to the provision of this website and the services available in it?

4.1 Provision of the website and the creation of log files
Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the computer requesting the access. In connection with this, the following data is collected:
(1) Information about the browser type and the version which is used
(2) The user's operating system
(3) The Internet service provider of the user
(4) The IP address of the user
(5) Date and time of access
(6) Websites from which the user’s system reaches our website
(7) Websites that are accessed from the user’s system via our website
Alternative a) To be additionally used if assignment to the user is possible:
The data is also stored in the log files of our system. The storage of this data together with other personal data relating to the user does not take place.
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data under log files is art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR.
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary in order to enable delivery of the website on the user’s computer. To do this, the user's IP address must be kept for the duration of the session. Storage takes place in log files in order to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data is used to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. In this context, an evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place. These purposes represent our legitimate interest in the processing of data in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR.
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purpose of their collection. In the case of collecting the data for providing the website, this when the respective session is completed.
In the case of storing the data in log files, this is the case after no more than seven days. Additional storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that assignment to the accessing client is no longer possible.
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is essential for the website to operate. Consequently, there is no contradiction on the part of the user.
Alternative b) Instead of using alternative a) if no assignment to the user is possible:
The data is also stored in our system’s log files. This does not affect the IP address of the user or other data that allows the data to be assigned to a user. This data is not stored together with other personal data related to the user.
The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data is art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR.
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary in order to enable delivery of the website on the user’s computer. To do this, the user's IP address must be kept for the duration of the session. These purposes represent our legitimate interest in the processing of data in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR.
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purpose of their collection. In the case of collecting the data for providing the website, this when the respective session is completed.
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is essential for the website to operate. Consequently, there is no contradiction on the part of the user.

4.3 Contact form and e-mail contact
A contact form is available on our website which can be used for electronic contact. If you make use of this option, the data entered in the box will be transmitted to us and saved. These data include the following:
(a) First name and surname

For the processing of your data, your consent is obtained during the process of sending the data and reference is made to this data protection statement.
Alternatively, contact is possible via the e-mail address which is provided. In this case, the personal data transmitted with your e-mail will be stored. In connection with this, there is no disclosure of the data to third parties. The data is exclusively used to process the conversation.
The legal basis for processing the data is your consent (art. 6 para. 1 a GDPR).
The legal basis for processing the data which are transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR. If the e-mail contact aims to conclude a contract, then the additional legal basis for the processing is art. 6 para. 1 b GDPR.
The processing of personal data in the input box only serves to establish the contact. In the case of contact via e-mail, this also includes the required legitimate interest in the processing of the data. The other personal data processed during the sending process serves to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our IT systems.
The data will be deleted if they are no longer necessary for the purpose they were collected for. In the case of personal data from the entry box of the contact form and data sent via e-mail, this is when the respective conversation with you as a user has ended. This is the case when, from the circumstances, it can be inferred that the matter has been clarified. Additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of 7 days at the latest.
You have the option of being able to revoke your consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If you contact us by e-mail, you may object to the storage of your personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation can no longer continue.
In this case, all personal data which has been stored in the course of making contact will be deleted.

4.4 Applicant management
You would like to apply to work for us? We look forward to receiving your application by e-mail.
Within the scope of applicant management, we process the personal data you have provided us in order to initiate employment based on art. 88 GDPR in connection with sect. 26 para. 1 Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). Alternatively, collective agreements (group-wide agreements, overall agreements, company agreements and collective bargaining agreements) may be used in accordance with art. 88 GDPR in connection with sect. 26 para. 4 Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) as well as consent (e.g. in the case of photographs) art. 88 GDPR in connection with sect. 26 para. 2 Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).
In some cases, we will process your data in order to uphold legitimate interests, e.g. in the case of data exchange within the group for administrative purposes (art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR in connection with recital 48).
If special categories of personal data (e.g. severe disability) are processed, this is done on the basis of art. 88 GDPR in connection with sect. 26 para. 3 Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). In addition, in accordance with art. 9 para. 2 h in connection with sect. 22 para. 1 b Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), the processing of health data is required for assessing your ability to work.
We process and store your personal data for as long as it is necessary to fulfil the purpose of data processing or of legal, contractual or statutory obligations. Thereafter, the data is deleted or its processing is restricted. In the event that no employment relationship is concluded after completing the application process, we will delete your data no later than 3 years after completing the application process. Upon expiry of the regular 3-year limitation period under sect. 195 German Civil Code (BGB) this is the time when any claims under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG) become time-barred. Should we wish to save your application beyond the period of 3 years in a so-called ‘applicant pool’, we will ask your consent for this at the end of the three years.
Of course, you are also free to withdraw your application at any time. In this case your data will also be deleted if they are no longer necessary for the purpose for which they were collected. Submitting an e-mail to us with the appropriate content is sufficient. The revocation of any consent you may have given is also possible at any time.

4.5    Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics including the Google Analytics advertising features. This is a web analysis service of Google Inc. (‘Google’). Google Analytics uses so-called ‘cookies’, which are text files that are stored on your computer that allow an analysis of how you use the website.
Google Analytics is used exclusively with activated IP anonymisation (so-called IP masking). This means that the user’s IP address will be truncated by Google within the member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is only transmitted to a Google server in the US and shortened there in exceptional cases, e.g. when there are technical breakdowns in Europe.
The IP anonymisation method used by Google does not store the full IP address on a hard disk because the entire anonymisation process occurs almost immediately in the memory after receiving the request.
The IP address transmitted by the user’s browser will not be merged with other data provided by Google.
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports concerning website activity and to provide other services related to website activity / Internet usage, especially including functions for display advertising and Google Analytics reports for providing output based on demographic characteristics and interests with respect to the website operator.
Google may also transfer this information to third parties if it is required by law or insofar as third parties process this data on behalf of Google. On no account will this be personal data.
Google Analytics reports concerning output according to demographics and interests are used via interest-based advertising obtained by Google and third-party visitor data (such as age groups or interest groups).
You can prevent the storage of cookies by correspondingly setting your browser software; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use all the features of this website to the fullest extent possible.
In addition, you can prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and data related to your use of the website (including your IP address), as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link:
Downloading and installing the Google Browser-Plugin

You can also prevent the collection of data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent the future collection of your data when you visit this website:

and/or https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/.
 

4.7. Use of Content Delivery Networks
We use zw. BootstrapCDN/MaxCDN as well as Google Video and Google Fonts (see this for the  Google privacy policy). Files are transferred from extremely fast and local servers or less busy by a CDN (content delivery network).

Example: In the source code of our website you will find:
https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.4/css/bootstrap.min.css...

This shortens the loading time of the website. MaxCDN operates numerous servers in Europe (including among others, servers in Frankfurt, London and Paris) in order to transfer base layout files or fonts as fast as possible. However, technically, it cannot be ruled out that your browser accesses a server from outside the EU. In these cases, data will be sent directly to the respective country. In this case you agree to a transfer of your data to the USA and/or the country of the server location.

For an overview of server locations, visit maxcdn.com/features/network/ and google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/index.html. The communication and contents of the website are handled exclusively outside of the CDNs mentioned. I do not know what data Bootstrapcdn.com associates with the data received and for what purposes Bootstrapcdn.com uses this data. For more information, see the data protection statement of Bootstrapcdn.com: https://www.maxcdn.com/legal/.

4.8. Doubleclick by Google
Doubleclick by Google is a service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (‘Google’). Doubleclick by Google uses cookies in order to show you advertisements that are relevant to you. Your browser will be assigned a pseudonymous identification number (ID) in order to check which advertisements have appeared in your browser and which advertisements have been viewed. The cookies do not contain any personal information. Use of the DoubleClick cookie allows Google and its affiliate websites to serve advertisements, based on previous visits to our or other websites on the Internet. For the purpose of evaluation, the information generated by the cookies is transmitted by Google to a server in the USA and stored there. A transfer of the data by Google to third parties only takes place on account of legal regulations or within the context of order data processing. In no case will Google match its data to other data collected by Google. By using our web pages, you agree to the processing of the data collected about you by Google, the manner in which data is processed as described above and the stated purpose. You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; However, we would like to point out that in this case, you may not be able to use all the functions of our web pages in full. You may also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookies, the data related to your use of the website and the processing of such data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the DoubleClick deactivation extension link below. Alternatively, you can disable the Doubleclick cookies on the Digital Advertising Alliance website at the following link.

4.9. ytimg
Our site reloads Java Script code from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter referred to as: Google). If you have activated JavaScript in your browser and have not installed a Java script blocker, your browser may transfer personal data to Google. We do not know what data Google associates with the data that is received and why Google uses that information. To prevent the overall execution of Java script code by Google, you can install a Java script blocker (e.g., www.noscript.net).


4.10 Use of Youtube videos
This website uses the Youtube embedding feature to display and play videos from ‘Youtube’, which is owned by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (‘Google’).
In connection with this, the extended privacy mode is used, which according to the information supplied by the provider, only stores user information when the video is played. When an embedded YouTube video is played, the provider ‘YouTube’ uses cookies to collect information about user behaviour. According to ‘YouTube’, these are used, among other things, to capture video statistics, improve user-friendliness to and prevent abusive practices. If you’re logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account when you click a video. If you do not want any association with your profile by YouTube, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data (even for non-logged-in users) as usage profiles and evaluates them. According to art. 6 para 1 f of the GDPR, such an evaluation is based on the legitimate interests of Google in displaying personalised advertising, market research and/or the tailored design of its website. You have a right to object to the creation of these user profiles, wherein you must be directed to YouTube in order to exercise this right.
Regardless of any playback of the embedded video, every time you visit this website, it will connect to the Google Network ‘DoubleClick’, which may trigger further data processing without us having any influence over it.
US-based Google LLC is certified under the US Privacy Shield, which ensures compliance with the level of data protection in the EU.
For further information on data protection at ‘YouTube’, please see the provider’s privacy policy at: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy

With regard to the right to information and the right to deletion, the restrictions under sects. 34 and 35 Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) apply. In addition, there is a right of appeal to a competent data protection supervisory authority (art. 77 GDPR in connection with sect. 19 Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG)).
You may revoke your consent to the processing of personal data at any time. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent, which were issued to us before the effectiveness of the GDPR, i.e. before 25 May 2018. Please note that the revocation is only effective for the future. Processing that occurred before the revocation is not affected.
Please feel free to contact us concerning this at compliance@cbpg.com.

6. Do I have to provide my personal information?
As part of our business relationship, you must provide the personal information that is necessary to enter into and carry out a business relationship, fulfil the contractual obligations, as well provide the information that we are required to collect by law. Without this data, we will generally have to refuse conclusion of the contract, execution of the order or alternatively, we are unable to complete an existing contract and we have to terminate it if necessary.


7. Is there automated decision-making?
No. At present, we do not use fully automated decision-making in accordance with art. 22 GDPR in order to establish and conduct business relations. ‘Profiling’ does not take place.
