Collection of General Information
When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically recorded. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and the like. This is only information that does not allow conclusions about your person. This information is technically necessary to correctly deliver the contents of web pages requested by you and is mandatory when using the internet. Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us, in order to optimize our Internet appearance and the technology behind it.
Like many other websites, we also use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. This automatically gives us certain data, such as IP address, browser used, operating system from your computer and your connection to the Internet.
Cookies can not be used to launch programs or to transfer viruses to a computer. Based on the information contained in cookies, we can facilitate navigation and enable the correct display of our websites.
In no case will the data collected by us be passed on to third parties or a link with personal data be established without your consent.
Our websites offer links to third party websites. The operators of the internet representation of the Lindner Group have no influence on the content of the linked pages. They were checked thoroughly prior to the links going live. Despite this we cannot rule out that the operators of the respective pages have made any changes to the contents that may breach current law or that may go against the corporate Lindner Group philosophy. The Lindner Group herewith distances itself from such content.
Provision of Paid Services
To provide paid services we ask for additional data, such as: Payment details.

For an effective registration, we need a valid e-mail address. In order to verify that a registration is actually made by the owner of an e-mail address, we use the "double opt-in" procedure. For this purpose, we log the order of the newsletter, the sending of a confirmation email and the confirmation of the registration.
To optimise the newsletter and our sales activities, we analyse your interaction with the newsletter. In doing so, we collect information on whether you open the newsletter and whether and which links you click.

Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (following: Google). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, ie text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymization on these websites, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US 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 related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by a corresponding setting of your browser software; however, we point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website in full. In addition, you may prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading the browser plug-in available under the following link and install:

Google Analytics Reports on Demographic Characteristics and Interests
We have activated the advertising reporting features in Google Analytics. The reports on demographic characteristics and interests contains information on age, gender and interests. This allows us to get a better picture of our users – without being able to assign this data to individual persons. You can find out more about the advertising functions here.
You can stop the use of the activities and information of your Google account under "advertising settings" here.
Statistical range measurement
When you access a job posting on our site, we statistically analyze whether the person got there via our career site or via so-called job portals of third parties, as well as whether the person applied or not.

We have concluded an agreement with VONQ pursuant to Art. 28 DSGVO so that your data is processed exclusively in accordance with our instructions for the purposes stated here. This data processing does not serve to create a personal profile or identify a person.
The legal basis for this is our legitimate interest in monitoring the effectiveness of our online job advertisements, in particular on which portals our job advertisements achieve the greatest effectiveness, within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.

Using Script Libraries (Google Webfonts)
In order to render our content correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries on this website, such as: Google Webfonts. Google web fonts are transferred to the cache of your browser to prevent multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Web fonts or prohibits access, content will be displayed in a standard font.
The call of script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible - but currently also unclear whether and if so for what purposes - that operators of such libraries collect data.
Use of Google Maps
This website uses Google Maps API to visually display geographic information. When using Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data about the use of map features by visitors. For more information about Google's data processing, please refer to the Google Privacy Notice. There you can also change your personal privacy settings in the privacy center.

Embedded YouTube videos with extended data protection configuration
Some of our websites embed YouTube videos. The provider of the associated YouTube plugins is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. 7 / 9. We use YouTube in the extended data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode means that YouTube does not save any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. However, the extended data protection mode does not necessarily preclude the transfer of data to YouTube partners. For example, regardless of whether you are watching a video, YouTube connects to the Google DoubleClick network. As soon as you start a YouTube video on this website, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. The YouTube server is informed which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account. Furthermore, YouTube can save various cookies on your end device after starting a video. With the help of these cookies, YouTube can receive information about visitors to this website. This information is used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve usability and prevent fraud. The cookies remain on your device until you delete them. If necessary, further data processing processes can be triggered after the start of a YouTube video, over which we have no influence.
Information on data protection at YouTube can be found in their data protection information at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.
Google Tag Manager
This website uses the Google Tag Manager. This service allows website tags to be managed through an interface. The Google Tag Manager only implements tags. That means: no cookies are used and no personal data is stored. The Google Tag Manager triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. However, the Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at domain or cookie level, it will remain for all tracking tags as long as they are implemented with the Google Tag Manager.
Our website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you have reached our website via an advertisement sent by Google, Google Adwords will set a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on a Google-served ad. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages on our website and the cookie has not expired, we and Google may recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can not be tracked through AdWords advertisers' websites. The information gathered using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users.
If you do not want to participate in the tracking, you can refuse the required setting of a cookie - for example via a browser setting that generally disables the automatic setting of cookies or sets your browser to block cookies from the domain “googleleadservices.com”.
Please note that you can not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not want to record measurement data. If you have deleted all your cookies in the browser, you must set the respective opt-out cookie again.

You have the right to object at any time to any processing of your personal data based on Art. 6 (1) (e) and (f) GDPR.
