  • Further administrative purposes.


The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 Par. 1 item f GDPR. Our justified interest results from the above listed data acquisition purposes. We never use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about you personally. Furthermore, we use website cookies and analytics services when you visit our website. For a more detailed explanation of this topic, refer to sections 4 and 5 of this data protection declaration.

b) Upon registration for our newsletter

Provided that you have expressly consented in accordance with Art. 6 Par. 1 item a GDPR, we use your e-mail address for the purpose of sending you our newsletter at regular intervals.

c) For the use of our contact form

For questions of any kind, we provide you with the option to contact us using a form provided on the website. In the process, providing a valid e-mail address, first and last name as well as further data is required so that we know who sent us the inquiry and can provide an answer. Further details can be provided voluntarily. Data processing for the purpose of making contact with us is done in accordance with Art. 6 Par. 1 item a GDPR on the basis of your voluntarily provided consent. The personal data collected by us for the use of the contact form is automatically deleted after the conclusion of the inquiry that you originally made.

d) Use of our online shop

For the use of our online shop, it is necessary for you to specify the data which is required for processing the order. If you create a customer account or want to revise data you have already specified, the data you provide will be stored in your account settings with the option for revocation and can be used for further orders without needing to re-enter it every single time.

Your data is used for the purpose of processing your order if you have a customer account in our online shop and is also used to make further orders easier. In order to prevent unauthorized access to your data by third-parties, the ordering process is encrypted using SSL technology. For the shipment of commodities, we provide your address data to a shipping company commissioned by us. The data is processed for the purposes of the order in accordance with Art. 6 Par. 1 item a GDPR on the basis of your consent that you provide voluntarily.

e) Job application

Personal data that you provide to us in electronic form during an application process is only collected with your express consent.

The consent that you provide for storing your application data as part of the application process is worded in the following way:

“Declaration of consent for the storage of applicant data.

If my application should not be successful, I provide my consent to di-soric GmbH & Co. KG to store my personal data that I have communicated as part of the application process (particularly in the cover letter, résumé, testimonials, applicant questionnaires, personal statement) beyond the end of the concrete application process. I hereby consent that di-soric may use this data, should the situation arise, to contact me if I should be considered for another position at a later point in time. Provided that I myself have communicated “special types of personal data” (e.g. a photo that enables recognition of ethnic background, information on characteristics of severely challenged persons, etc.) in my application letter or other documents that I have submitted as part of the application process, I extend my consent to this data as well. Moreover, this consent applies to data on my qualifications and tasks from generally accessible sources of data (especially professional social networks) which di-soric has collected with authorization as part of the application process. This consent is voluntary and has no effect on my prospects for the present application process. I can refuse my consent, without specifying reasons why or worrying that this will lead to disadvantages. Furthermore, I can revoke my consent at any time by sending an e-mail to jobs (at) di-soric.com. In such a case, my data will be immediately deleted (after the application process is complete).” The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 Par. 1 item f GDPR.

  • You have granted express consent for such purposes in accordance with Art. 6 Par. 1 item a GDPR.

4.    Cookies

We use cookies on our website. These are small files that are automatically created by your browser and stored on your end device (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you visit our page. Cookies do not cause any damage to your end device and do not contain any viruses, trojans or other malware.

In the cookie, information is stored that is generated in connection with the use of the specific end device in question. However, this does not mean that we obtain direct knowledge of your identity thorough these cookies.

One reason why we use cookies is because doing so helps us to make it more convenient for you to use our services. As such, we use what are referred to as “session cookies” in order to identify that you have already visited individual pages of our website. After exiting our website, these are automatically deleted.

Furthermore, we also set temporary cookies for user-friendliness optimization which are stored to your end device for a defined period of time. If you visit our site again to make use of our services, it is automatically recognized that you have already visited us and which inputs and settings you made so that you do not have to re-enter this information.

In addition, we set cookies to gather statistics on the use of our website and for the purposes of evaluating the optimization of our services for you (see section 5). These cookies enable us to automatically identify that you have already visited us whenever you revisit our site. These cookies are automatically deleted after a period of time defined for each specific case.

The data processed due to cookies is required for the abovementioned purposes for protecting our legitimate interests and those of third-parties in accordance with Art. 6 Par. 1 item f GDPR.

Most browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you can configure your browser in such a way that either cookies are not stored to your computer at all or a message always appears before a new cookie is created. The complete deactivation of cookies may, however, mean that you will not be able to use all of the functions of our website.

5.   Analysis tools:

a)    Tracking tools:

The tracking measures specified in the following and used by us are carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Par. 1 item f GDPR. By using the following tracking measures, we hope to ensure a needs-based design and continued optimization of our website. Additionally, we utilize tracking measures to gather statistics on the use of our website and for the purpose of evaluating the optimization of our services for you. These interests are to be viewed as valid within the meaning of the aforementioned regulation. For the respective data processing purposes and data categories, refer to the corresponding tracking tool.

i) Google Analytics

For the purposes of adequate design and continuous optimization of our website, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (https://www.google.de/ intl/de/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, US; hereinafter referred to as “Google“). In using this service, pseudonymized utilization profiles are created and cookies (refer to section 4) are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website, such as:



  • Browser type/version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL (the site previously visited)
  • Host name of the accessing computer (IP address)
  • Time of server inquiry



is transferred to a server owned by Google in the USA and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports regarding website activities and to provide further services associated with website use and Internet use for the purposes of market research and the adequate design of these Internet pages. This information is also sent to third parties, provided that this is stipulated by law or if a third party is commissioned to process this data. Your IP address will never be merged with other data from Google. The IP addresses are anonymized so that mapping is not possible (IP masking).

You can prevent the installation of cookies using a corresponding browser software setting; however, we would like to point out that in such a case, it may not be possible to use all website functions in their full scope. Furthermore, you can prevent the acquisition of all data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on:

(https:// tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de). As an alternative to a browser add-on, especially while browsing on mobile end devices, you can also prevent data acquisition by Google Analytics by clicking on this link. This sets an opt-out cookie that prevents the future acquisition of your data when visiting this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website, and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must re-set the opt-out cookie. You can find further information on data protection relating to Google Analytics at Google Analytics support (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/ 6004245?hl=de), for example.

ii) Google Adwords Conversion Tracking:

In order to acquire statistical data on the use of our website and for the purpose of evaluating the optimization of our website for you, we also use Google Conversion Tracking. Here, a cookie is set to your computer from Google Adwords (see section 4), provided that you reached our website by means of a Google display. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and do not act as a personal identifier. If the user visits certain pages of the Adwords customer's website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer can identify that the user clicked on the display and was forwarded to this page. Each Adwords customer receives a different Cookie. Therefore, cookies cannot be tracked through the websites of Adwords customers. The information gathered using the conversion cookies is used for the purpose of creating conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have opted for Conversion Tracking. Adwords customers learn the total number of users that have clicked on their display and were then redirected to a page that has a Conversion Tracking Tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify the user. If you would not like to participate in the Tracking process, you can refuse the setting of a cookie required for this purpose – for example, through a browser setting that deactivates automatic cookie setting in general. You can also deactivate cookies for Conversion Tracking by configuring your browser in such a way that cookies from the domain ‘www.googleadservices.com” are blocked. You can find the Google data protection instructions on Conversion Tracking here (https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html).

iii) Google Tag Manager

Google Tag Manager, a service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, US (“Google”), is a solution that allows marketer website tags to be managed using an interface. The Tool Tag Manager itself, which implements the tags, is a cookie-free domain and does not record any personal data. Nevertheless, the Tool ensures the activation of other tags which, in turn, record data under certain circumstances. However, Google Tag Manager itself does not have access to this data. If a deactivation on the domain or cookie level has been carried out, this deactivation remains in effect for all Tracking Tags that are implemented using Google Tag Manager. You can find further information here (https://www.google.com/intl/de/tagmanager/use-policy.html).

iv) eTracker

We use eTracker for the analysis and statistical evaluation of the use of the website. For this purpose, information on website use is sent to an eTracker Server and aggregated in pseudonymized and anonymized utilization profiles. The data is available exclusively for the purpose of analysis. The data is processed and stored in Germany.

Further information can be found here (https://www.etracker.com/datenschutz).

During the website visit, we use the common SSL method (Secure Socket Layer) in combination with the respective highest level of encryption that is supported by your browser. This is usually 256 bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256 bit encryption, we resort to 128 bit v3 technology instead. The closed key or lock image (for example, a key symbol) on your browser's lower status bar indicates whether or not an individual page of our website has been transmitted with encryption. Furthermore, we take suitable technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or malicious manipulation, partial or total loss, destruction and against unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in accordance with technical advancements.
