We process your personal data only to the extent necessary for the provision of our offering. In addition, we only process personal data if you provide us with this data, for example in the context of a registration, by filling out forms, subscribing to our newsletter, sending e-mails and inquiries or through other services. We will only use the personal data which you have provided for the purposes of contract fulfilment and processing your requests. Legal ground for this is Art. 6 (1)(b) GDPR.
The processing and use of your personal data for other purposes, such as consulting, advertising and market research, only occurs if you have previously consented to the corresponding use or if we are required or entitled to process the data because of a statutory provision. If a corresponding consent was requested, the processing of your data is based on Art. 6 (1)(a) DSGVO or Section 25 (1) TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes access to information on your terminal device within the meaning of the TTDSG.
We collect a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information are stored in the server’s log files. The following data are processed:
· the browser types and versions used
· the operating system used by the accessing system
· the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer)
· the sub-websites that use an accessing system on our website can be controlled
· the date and time of access to the website
· an internet protocol address (IP address)
· the internet service provider of the accessing system.
This data is analyzed for statistical purposes only with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The legal basis for this is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. We do not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is technically required to deliver the content of our website correctly, to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber-attack.
The data stored in the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
In order to optimize the functionality and usability of the website, we use so-called cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies help make our website more user-friendly, efficient, and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies." They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device's memory until you delete them. These cookies allow to recognize your browser when you next visit the site.
You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of your internet browser and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time using an Internet browser or other software programs. If you deactivate the setting of cookies in your internet browser, you may not be able to use all functions of our website to their full extent.
This website uses "Google Analytics 4" ("Google Analytics"), a web analytics service provided by Google LLC. The responsible entity for users in the EU/EEA and Switzerland is Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google"). The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics and the data processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR or Section 25 (1) TTDSG (consent). We use Google Analytics to analyze the use of our website and to continuously improve individual functions and offers as well as the user experience. Through the statistical evaluation of user behavior, we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. We also use the data reports generated by Google Analytics to provide these reports to companies with which we have entered into partnerships, in order for them to gain a better understanding of the AME industry through different levels of information, e.g. potential leads, frequency of visits to our partners’ websites, download of our partners’ material or interest of different users in our partners’ products/designs/papers.

are usually transferred to a Google server in the United States and stored there. We have limited the data storage to [●] through a setting in the data retention controls.
In order to oblige Google to process the transmitted data only in accordance with our instructions and in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations, we have concluded a data processing agreement (DPA) with Google pursuant to Article 28 (3) GDPR.
To ensure compliance with European data protection standards in the US, we have also concluded the new EU standard contractual clauses (Decision EU/2021/914) with Google. The parent company of Google Ireland, Google LLC, is based in California, United States. A transfer of data to the US and access by US authorities to the data stored by Google cannot be ruled out. The US is currently considered a third country from a data protection perspective. You do not have the same rights there as within the EU/EEA. You may not be entitled to any legal remedies against access by authorities.
You can prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).
You can also revoke your consent in whole or in part at any time with effect for the future by changing your cookie settings here.
You can stop the use of the activities and information of your Google account under "Advertising settings" on https://adssettings.google.com/anonymous?hl=de via checkbox.
We inform our customers and business partners at regular intervals by means of a newsletter about offers and news from us. You can subscribe to our newsletter on this website. If you wish to do so, we require that you provide us with your email address. The processing of this data solely serves the purpose of the orderly delivery of the newsletter. Legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR or Section 25 (1) TTDSG.
For the subscription, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that a confirmation email will be sent to the email address provided by you for the delivery of the newsletter. In this confirmation email, we ask you to confirm the subscription to our newsletter. If you do confirm by clicking on the link provided in the confirmation email, we will save your email address and the other information you might have provided us with, until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. When you click on the link in the confirmation email, we also store the IP address from which access is made and the time of access to prevent possible misuse.
Our newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in emails that are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This enables a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns to be carried out. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, J.A.M.E.S can recognize whether and when an email was opened by you and which links in the email were clicked by you. Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by us in order to optimize the sending of the newsletter and to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the person concerned. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Legal basis for this is Article 6(1)(a) GDPR/Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.
You are entitled at any time to withdraw your consent relating to this by sending an email to the address mentioned at the beginning of this data privacy notice. After you withdraw your consent, your personal data will be deleted. If you unsubscribe from the newsletter, J.A.M.E.S automatically interprets this as withdrawal of your consent and will also delete your data.
You can contact us via the contact form on our website. The data you will have to provide us with are your first and last name, your email address and the message with your contact request. Optional data you can provide us with are your company name, country of origin and your phone number. This personal data is processed for the purpose of responding and handling your contact request. Legal ground for this is Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR or Section 25 (1) TTDSG. This personal data is not passed on to third parties.
When you send us an application, we collect your associated personal data (contact and communication data, application documents (in particular cover letter, letter of motivation, CV, certificates, references), information in the context of job interviews) and process the data to the extent necessary to decide on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is Sec. 26 BDSG, Art. 6 (1)(b) GDPR. Your personal data will be processed within our company exclusively by people who are involved in the processing of your application (these are the employees of the personnel department and the decision-makers of the respective departments).
If the application is successful, the data submitted by you will be processed based on Art. 6 (1)(b) GDPR in conjunction with Sec. 26 BDSG for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship stored in our data processing systems in compliance with the statutory provisions.
If we are unable to offer you an employment relationship, if you reject an offer of employment or withdraw your application, we reserve the right to retain the data you have provided for up to 2 (two) months from the termination of the application process (rejection or withdrawal of the application). Thereafter, the data will be deleted and the physical application documents destroyed. Retention serves in particular for purposes of proof in the event of a legal dispute. If it is apparent that the data will be required after the 2-month period has expired (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), the data will not be deleted until the purpose for continued storage no longer applies.
We only store your personal data for as long as it is necessary for the fulfilment of the purpose of its collection. The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After that, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, provided that we are not required by applicable statutory provisions to store it for a longer period (e.g. tax regulations).
We do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
In order to provide and continuously improve our services, we rely on the services of the following third-party providers, through which personal data may also be processed. We have selected these third-party providers carefully and in accordance with the provisions of applicable data protection legislation.

If you follow the link during your visit to our website and are logged in using your personal user account with LinkedIn, the information that you have visited our website will be forwarded to LinkedIn.
