Information is stored in the cookie that is related to the specific end device used. However, this does not mean that we gain direct knowledge of your identity.

The use of cookies serves, on the one hand, to make the use of our offer more pleasant for you. We use so-called session cookies to recognise that you have already visited individual pages of our website. These are automatically deleted after you leave our site.

In addition, we also use temporary cookies to optimise user-friendliness, which are stored on your end device for a certain fixed period of time. If you visit our site again to use our services, it is automatically recognised that you have already been with us and which entries and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again.

On the other hand, we use cookies to statistically record the use of our website and for the purpose of optimising our offer (see point 4). These cookies enable us to automatically recognise that you have already been to our website when you visit it again. These cookies are automatically deleted after a defined period of time.

The data processed by cookies is necessary for the aforementioned purposes to protect our legitimate interests as well as those of third parties in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 f DSGVO.

4. Transmission of the data

Service providers employed by us who perform certain data processing tasks for us may receive data in order to fulfil our contractual and legal obligations. The prerequisite for this is that they follow our instructions under data protection law.

With regard to the transfer of data to recipients outside of the Society, it should be noted that we may only transfer personal data if this is required by law, if you have given your consent and/or if the processors commissioned by us ensure that the requirements of the DSGVO/Federal Data Protection Act/Lower Saxony State Data Protection Act are met in the same way. Under these conditions, recipients of personal data may be, for example: Processors to whom we transfer personal data. In detail: Support/maintenance of IT applications; archiving; controlling; data destruction; website management.

Further data recipients may be those bodies for which you have given your consent to the transfer of data.

In the course of processing a mandate, we may disclose personal data if the disclosure is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 f DSGVO and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in not having your data disclosed. The legitimate interest follows from the interest in the effective enforcement of your legal interests. In addition, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 b DSGVO.

5. Deletion

We process and store your personal data as long as it is necessary for the fulfilment of our contractual and legal obligations. If the data is no longer required for the fulfilment of contractual or legal obligations, it is regularly deleted, unless its - temporary - further processing is necessary for the following purposes:

- Compliance with professional and tax law retention periods: For example, the German Fiscal Code (Abgabenordnung). The time limits specified there for storage and documentation are two to ten years.
- preservation of evidence within the framework of the statute of limitations. According to sections 195 et seq. of the German Civil Code (BGB), these limitation periods can be up to 30 years, with the regular limitation period being three years.

Data of persons who have applied to us as employees will be deleted 3 months after completion of the application procedure if no contract is concluded with the applicant, provided that no other legitimate interests on our part oppose deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

In addition, there is a right of appeal to a data protection supervisory authority (Article 77 DSGVO in conjunction with Section 19 BDSG). You may revoke your consent to the processing of personal data at any time. Please note that the revocation is only effective for the future. Processing that took place before the revocation is not affected.
