The “Controller” is the natural or legal entity, agency, institution or other office that makes decisions independently or jointly with others regarding the purposes and means of processing personal data.

We only process your personal data where permitted by law or where you have provided your explicit consent for this.

This site uses SSL and/or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, for instance any orders or inquiries that you send to us as the site operator. You can identify an encrypted connection because the address bar in the browser will change from “http://” to “https://” and a lock symbol will appear in your browser bar.

If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Please note that data transmission online (e.g. when communicating by email) can involve security gaps. It is not possible to provide seamless protection of data against third-party access.

V. Use of Google Analytics

On the basis of our legitimate interest (i.e. our interest in the analysis, optimization and economical operation of our online offering in the sense of Art. 6(1) lt. f. GDPR), we utilize Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google LLC (“Google”). Google implements cookies. As a rule, information that the cookie produces regarding the usage of the online offering is transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there.

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement, which allows it to guarantee that European data protection laws will be observed (

Google uses this information on our account in order to analyze users’ usage of our online offering, to compile reports on the activities within this online offering, and to provide us with additional services relating to the use of this online offering and internet use. The processed data can be used to create pseudonymous usage profiles for the users.

We exclusively implement Google Analytics with IP anonymization enabled. That means the user’s IP address is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states which are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the United States and shortened there.

Google does not associate the IP address transmitted by the user’s browser with any other data. Users can block cookies by changing the corresponding settings in their browser software; furthermore, users can prevent data generated by the cookie regarding their use of the online offering from being sent to Google and processed by Google if they download and install the browser plugin found under the following link:

This data is exclusively saved and used for the purpose of responding to your inquiry and for the associated technical administration.

The legal basis for processing this data is our legitimate interest in responding to your inquiry as per Art. 6(1) lt. f GDPR. If you contact us with the aim of concluding a contract, Art. 6(1) lt. b represents an additional legal basis for the processing. Your data will be erased once your inquiry has been fully processed. This is the case when circumstances indicate that the relevant matter has been conclusively resolved and where there are no conflicting statutory retention obligations.

VII. Data protection for applicants

If you send us data as part of an application, we will process it according to the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act and the European General Data Protection Regulation. General information about data protection during your use of our website can be found on our website under the URL

Purpose of collecting and transmitting applicant data

The application data is exclusively collected and processed for the purpose of handling your application and for purposes of the employment relationship.

Data retention

Your data is saved exclusively with your consent. As a rule, we save your data for 3 months so that we can respond to any questions relating to your application or its rejection. After that, your data is erased. With your consent, we will save your data in our applicant pool for up to 12 months so that we can offer you an alternative position if the opportunity arises. If you withdraw your application, we will of course erase your data. If your application leads to the conclusion of a contract with ADVITEC Informatik GmbH, we will save and use your data for the purpose of our organizational and administrative processes and in compliance with the statutory regulations.

Withdrawal, erasure, information

The transmitted data will be erased if you withdraw your application (withdrawal declarations are to be sent to datenschutz{at}advitec{dot}de) or if we are unable to offer you a position, but at the earliest 3 months after the end of the application process. This does not apply if statutory provisions prevent such erasure or if further retention is necessary for the purpose of giving evidence, or if you have consented to a longer retention period.

You can also withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future. The relevant data will then be erased without delay. In this case, please address your withdrawal, including your full name and email address, to datenschutz{at}advitec{dot}de. Where defined by law, the data can be blocked rather than erased.

Furthermore, you have the right to request more specific information about the data saved regarding your person, to review this data, and to request that inaccurate data regarding your person be rectified or that the saved data be completely or partially erased.

Who performs the processing and can access applicant data?

Applicant data is exclusively processed and reviewed by the relevant contact partners on our premises. All employees involved in data processing are obligated to protect the confidentiality of your data. Under no circumstances will third parties obtain knowledge about your information. The data is exclusively processed in Germany.

VIII. Retention period for data

We follow the principles of data avoidance and data minimization. As a result, we only save your personal data for as long as this is necessary to achieve the purposes named herein, or as long as required by the various statutory retention periods. Once the respective purpose no longer applies and/or the retention periods have expired, the corresponding data is routinely blocked or erased according to the statutory requirements.

XII. Use of the LUX marketing automation tool

This website uses the marketing automation tool LUX.
Some user-defined settings, which do not allow any conclusions to be drawn about the visitor, are temporarily stored in the "Localstorage" area of the browser and are required to guarantee full functionality.

LUX attempts to recognize your return visits to the website based on your behaviour and the hardware you use in order to be able to offer you content according to your preferences and to simplify the usability of the website. Only an anonymized hash is transmitted, from which no conclusions can be drawn about your computer, smartphone or similar. This hash is not passed on and is only used for identification purposes.

Stored information of any kind is generally never passed on to third parties. You can prevent recognition and the display of individual content by activating the "DoNotTrack" header of your browser, for example. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent.

If you do not agree to the storage and use of your data, you can deactivate the storage and use here. In this case, an opt-out setting will be stored in your browser that prevents LUX from storing usage data.

You can decide here whether a unique web analysis cookie may be stored in your browser to enable the operator of the website to collect and analyze various statistical data. At the same time, the operation of the website will be optimized and simplified for you. If you wish to opt out, click on the following link to store the deactivation cookie in your browser.

User-specific tracking is currently not active for you because your browser has informed us via a setting that you do not wish to be tracked. To reactivate tracking, you must deactivate the "Do Not Track" setting in your browser settings.
