11. Google AdSense

The controller has integrated Google AdSense on this website. Google AdSense is an online service that provides third-party advertising mediation. Google AdSense is based on an algorithm that selects the advertisements displayed on third-party websites in accordance with the contents of the respective third-party website. Google AdSense allows interest-based targeting of the Internet user, which is implemented by generating individual user profiles.

The Google AdSense component is operated by Alphabet Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of the Google AdSense component is to include advertisements on our website. Google AdSense sets a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are, has already been explained above. By placing this cookie, Alphabet Inc. provides an analysis of the use of our website. Each time one of the pages of this site is accessed by the controller and a Google AdSense component has been integrated, the internet browser on the subject's information technology system is automatically initiated by the respective Google AdSense component to submit data to Alphabet Inc. for purposes of online advertising and commission settlement.

The affected person can prevent the setting of cookies through our website, as shown above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Alphabet Inc. from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Alphabet Inc. can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Google AdSense also uses so-called counting pixels. A counting pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in web pages to enable log file recording and log file analysis, whereby a statistical evaluation can be performed. Based on the embedded pixel, Alphabet Inc. can detect if, and when an internet page was opened by an affected person and which links were clicked by the affected person. Counting pixels are used, among other things, to evaluate the flow of visitors to a website.

Google AdSense will transfer personal information and information, including the IP address required to collect and bill the displayed advertising, to Alphabet Inc. in the United States of America. This personal information is stored and processed in the United States of America. Alphabet Inc. may transfer such personal information collected through the technical process to third parties.

Google AdSense will be explained at  https://www.google.com/intl/en/adsense/start/ .

12. Applications

We also collect and process personal data from applicants for the purpose of processing the application process we conduct. The processing can also be done electronically. This is always the case if the applicant sends us application documents by electronic means,
i.e. by e-mail or via a web form implemented on our website. If we conclude a contract of employment with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of the employment relationship in compliance with the legal requirements. However, if no employment contract is concluded between us and the applicant, the application documents will be deleted four months after the announcement of the rejection decision, if deletion does not conflict with any other legitimate interests of the person responsible. Another legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a burden of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG). 

We would like to rate all applicants by qualification only and, therefore, ask for information on racial and ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or ideological beliefs or affiliations, genetic data, biometric data to uniquely identify a natural person, health data or sex life data or to dispense with the sexual orientation in the application as possible.
