This also comprises our application portal.

Provided you have consented to use of cookies and other similar technologies (see below) on one of the aforementioned websites or one of the corresponding sub-domains or sub-pages, this consent shall also extend to the use of cookies and other similar technologies used to process usage data on the other website as well as all corresponding sub-domains or sub-pages.

3.1.    Purpose of data processing / legal bases:

Cookies and the other technologies used to process usage data are deployed for the following purposes, depending on the categories of cookie / other technologies:

•    Preferences: Using these methods, we can take into account your actual or perceived preferences to enhance the user experience. For example, we can use your settings to display our websites in a language relevant to you. They also mean we can avoid displaying products that may not be available in your region.
•    Statistics: These technologies enable us to tailor the design of our services by producing anonymized statistics about how they are used. For example, we can use them to determine how better to adapt our websites to user habits.
•    Marketing: These enable us to display relevant advertising content based on an analysis of your usage behavior. Your usage behavior can also be tracked over various websites, browsers or devices via a user ID (unique identifier).

5.    Data transfer to recipients in a third country

If we transfer data to recipients in a third country (located outside of the European Economic Area), this will be evident in the information on the recipients / categories of recipient in the description of the respective data processing. Some third countries have been certified by the European Commission through so-called adequacy decisions as having a level of data protection comparable to that offered in the European Economic Area. A list of these countries is available at  http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/international-transfers/adequacy/index_en.html. If and insofar as there is no comparable data protection standard in effect, we will ensure that data protection is adequately guaranteed by other measures. These include, for example, binding company policies, standard contractual clauses for data transfers issued by the European Commission, certificates, or recognized codes of conduct. For further information, please contact our data protection officer.

3.    Right to erasure pursuant to Article 17 GDPR

You have the right to obtain from us the erasure of any personal data concerning you without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies:
•     the personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed;
•    you withdraw your consent on which the processing pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) or Article 9(2)(a) GDPR was based and there is no other legal ground for the processing;

4.    Right to restriction of processing pursuant to Article 18 GDPR

 You have the right to require us to restrict the processing where one of the following applies:
•    you contest the accuracy of the personal data;
•    the processing is unlawful and you request the restriction of the use of the personal data rather than its erasure;
•    the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but it is required by the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims or

You also have a right to lodge a complaint with the competent data protection supervisory authority at any time.
