Collection and storage of personal data as well as type and purpose of their use

a) When you visit our website

When you visit our website, our web server temporarily evaluates the usage data for statistical purposes in order to improve the quality of our website. This data record comprises

  • the name and the address of the requested content,
  • the date and time of the query,
  • the transmitted data amount,
  • the access status (contents transmitted, content not found),
  • the description of the web browser and the operating system used,
  • the referral link specifying from which site you accessed our site,
  • the IP address of the querying computer, shortened in such a way that it is not possible to reference an individual person.

These listed log data are only evaluated in an anonymous manner.

b) In case of contacting/communication (customers and interested parties)

If you have questions of any kind, you can contact us by e-mail or telephone. This action involves the transmission of at least one valid e-mail-address or your phone number. For communication purposes, we might process other data regarding your person transmitted by you to us.

Data processing for the purpose of contacting us takes place acc. to article 6, section 1a of the GDPR basing on your consent. In the course of a business relationship, we might process the data on the basis of a contract or pre-contractual measures acc. to article 6, section 1b of the GDPR. In individual cases, we process customer and interested party data due to our legitimate interest acc. to article 6, section 1f of the GDPR if and insofar as our interests in regard to this data processing prevail.

The personal data collected by us in the contacting process are generally deleted after your query has been settled. If the personal data of customers or interested persons are subject to a legal requirement of storage (e.g. as part of a contractual relationship), we shall store such data basing on article 6, section 1f of the GDPR until the legal period has expired. In some cases we have a legitimate interest in storing relevant processes (e.g. until the end of the limitation period) and shall save such data until the period expires basing on our legitimate interest acc. to article 6 section 1f of the GDPR.

c) In case of job applications/unsolicited applications

We are always happy to receive your application. Please ensure that you choose a means of transmission that offers sufficient safety. Sending an e-mail without suitable encryption is not recommended because this means of communication enables unauthorized persons to read and use your data without major effort. If you want to send us an encrypted e-mail with your application papers, please use only the e-mail address

Data we require:

In the application, we process those of your data that we need for your application. This includes contact data, data in connection with your application (résumé, certificates, qualifications, responses to questions, etc.) and possibly data of your bank account (to reimburse you for travel expenses). The legal basis for this is § 26 of the German Federal Data Protection Law.

Deletion of data:

Unless there is a legal requirement to store data over a specified period, the data will be deleted as soon as storage is no longer necessary and/or the justifiable interest to storage has lapsed. If no employment results, this happens on a regular basis, latest six months after concluding the application process. 

In individual cases, individual data can be stored over a longer period (e.g. travel expenses). The duration of storage then depends on the legal requirements for storage for example in the General Fiscal Law (6 years) or the Commercial Code (10 years).

If we do not hire you but your application is still of interest to us, we will ask for your permission to keep your application for future openings.

Confidential treatment of your data:

Naturally we shall treat your data confidentially and do not transmit them to third parties beyond the Gabler company.

If necessary, we employ service providers strictly bound by instructions who assist us e.g. in the field of IT or in archiving and destruction of documents and with whom we sign specific contracts regarding order processing.

Necessary cookies

We use cookies on our website which are necessary for using our website.

Cookies are small text files that can be saved to and read from your terminal device. There is a distinction between session cookies which are deleted as soon as you close your browser and permanent cookies which are saved beyond the individual session.

We do not use these necessary cookies for analysis, tracking or promotional purposes.

In part, these cookies only contain information regarding specific settings and cannot be traced to individuals. They can be necessary to enable user guidance, safety and implementation of the site.

We use these cookies on the basis of article 6 section 1f of the GDPR.

You can set up your browser in such a way that it informs you on the placement of cookies. That way, the use of cookies becomes transparent to you. In addition, you can always delete cookies via the corresponding browser settings and prevent the placement of new cookies. Please note that in such case it might not be possible any more to display our website and that some functions are not technically available any more.

Google Analytics

For the needs-based design of our website we use the web analysis tool "Google Analytics". Google Analytics creates usage profiles basing on pseudonyms. For this purpose, permanent cookies are saved on your terminal device and read by us. This enables us to recognize returning visitors and count them as such.

In the scope of Google Analytics we are supported by Google Ireland Limited and Google LLC (USA) as processor acc. to article 28 of the GDPR. Data processing can therefore take place outside of the EU / the EEA. In regard to Google LLC, we cannot assume a sufficient level of data protection because the processing takes place in the US. There is a risk that authorities access the data for security and surveillance purposes without informing you about it and without allowing you to lodge an appeal. Please bear this in mind when you decide to approve our use of Google Analytics. 

Data processing takes place on the basis of your approval acc. to article 6 section 1a of the GDPR or § 15 section 3 sentence 1 TMG, provided that you gave your consent via our banner. Transmission into a third country takes place on the basis of article 49 section 1a of the GDPR.  

You can revoke your consent at any time.To do so, please follow this link and specify the corresponding settings via our banner.

Embedding Google Maps

Our website contains embedded Google Maps. The map data are not stored on our servers. Calling up pages with embedded map services loads contents by Google LLC. By doing so, Google receives the information that you called up our page as well as the usage data technically required for this purpose.

We have no influence on further data processing by the third party. 

Embedding is done on the basis of article 6 section 1f of the GDPR and in the interest to enable you to use the map service. If you want to object to the embedding of Google Maps, please do not use our site any more. 

Transfer of data

Any transfer of your personal data to third parties for other purpose than listed herein will not take place.

We only disclose your personal data to third parties if:

  • you have given us your express consent pursuant to article 6, section 1a of the GDPR,
  • the relevant disclosure pursuant to article 6 section 1f of the GDPR is required to assert, exercise or defend legal claims and there is no reason to believe that you have no overriding and legitimate interest warranting non-disclosure of your data,
  • we are legally obliged to disclose the data pursuant to article 6 section 1c of the GDPR, or
  • the disclosure is lawful and required to handle a contractual relationship with you pursuant to article 6, section 1b of the GDPR.

We disclose your data as part of order processing acc. to article 28 of the GDPR to service providers who assist us in the operation of our website and any processes in connection therewith. These are e.g. hosting service providers or IT providers for the support of our IT systems. Our service providers are strictly bound by our instructions and under according contractual obligations.

In the following we provide you with the names of the order processors with whom we cooperate which we have not given in the previous part of this privacy policy. If data are transmitted beyond the EU or the EEA in the course of these processes, we provide you with information to the suitable privacy level.

Data security

In order to protect your data as comprehensively as possible from undesired access we take technical and organizational measures. We use an encryption method on our website.
