Website privacy statement and cookie disclaimer
The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and according to the legal data protection regulations as well as this data protection explanation.
For this purpose, we orient ourselves to the strict regulations of the European General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR) as well as the national adaptations of the BDSG (new).
As a rule, it is possible to use our website without providing personal data. Insofar as personal data is collected on our pages (e.g. name, address or e-mail addresses via the contact form), this is always done on a voluntary basis. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent. For technical reasons, however, information that can be associated with you is processed on the server side and through scripts and plug-ins. Examples of this are, for example, your IP address or information about the browser used. Details are listed below.
We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can be subject to security vulnerabilities. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
The internet page uses so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser during your next visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, accept cookies for certain cases or generally exclude them and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.
Provider and Server Log Files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which the browser automatically transmits. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Used operating system
- Referrer URL
- Hostname of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
These data cannot be assigned to specific persons without further steps, which are subject to strict legal regulation. These data will not be merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to have this data subsequently checked if we become aware of concrete indications of illegal use.
If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form including the contact data you provided there will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. These data will not be passed on without your consent. The transmission of your information from the contact form is transmitted via an encrypted connection to our server.
If you wish to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Further data will not be collected or will only be collected on a voluntary basis. We use these data exclusively for the dispatch of the requested information and do not pass these on to third parties.
The data entered in the newsletter registration form will be processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke your consent to the storage of data, e-mail address and their use to send the newsletter at any time, for example via the "Unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations that have already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you have stored with us for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and deleted after you cancel the newsletter. This does not affect data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the member area).
This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. Provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Here is the operator's data protection notice:
More information on the technology used by Google can be found here.
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. This will cause Google to shorten your IP address within member states of the European Union or other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted to the United States. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.
We use the component "Google Maps" on our site. "Google Maps" is a service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as "Google".
Google sets a cookie each time this component is accessed in order to process user settings and data when the page on which the "Google Maps" component is integrated is displayed. As a rule, this cookie is not deleted when you close your browser, but expires after a certain period of time unless you delete it manually beforehand.
If you do not agree with this processing of your data, it is possible to deactivate the "Google Maps" service and thus prevent the transmission of data to Google. To do this, you must deactivate the Java Script function in your browser. However, we would like to point out that in this case you cannot use "Google Maps" or can only use it to a limited extent.
This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests you send to us as a site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

We do not store your personal data longer than necessary for the realization of the purposes for which they are collected and processed.

We collect and process data of applicants that are relevant to completing the application procedure. Such as information about the applicant's level of education and employment history. We process this data because we have a legitimate interest in being able to assess whether the qualities of the applicant match the job requirements. Personal data that we receive in the context of an application procedure will be deleted no later than 4 weeks after the finalization of the procedure, unless the applicant has requested us to do so at an earlier stage.

All our employees additionally have a duty of confidentiality.
Your personal data will not be sold or rent out to third parties. We can disclose your personal data to third parties in accordance with this privacy statement and applicable laws and regulations. We sometimes use the services of third parties (such as IT service providers and hosting parties) to process your personal data. These third parties act as processor for Scheuten. Your personal data is processed by our processors on secure servers within the EU. Scheuten has concluded processing agreements with all its processors in accordance with (European) privacy regulations.
We will not disclose your personal information to law enforcement officers, other government officials, or other third parties without a court order or formal government request in accordance with applicable law, unless Scheuten believes in good faith that the disclosure of the information is warranted.
If Scheuten shares personal data with an organization that is not subject to European data protection regulations and does not have an adequacy decision from the European Commission, Scheuten ensures that your personal data is protected by standard contractual clauses from the European Commission, which ensure that the parties with which Scheuten shares personal data observe the same or comparable protection standards as Scheuten.
