Access data

The website operator or page provider collects data about accesses to the page and stores these as “server log files”. The following data is logged in this way:

With the help of this information, no conclusions are drawn about the site visitors concerned. It is only used for statistical evaluation and improvement of the website. However, the website operator reserves the right to subsequently check the “server log files” if there are concrete indications of illegal use.


If a website declares the use of cookies, small text files are saved on the end device. These files are accessed when using a browser. Cookies increase the quality and security of the website and its content. They also have a positive effect on user-friendliness.

For the known and established browsers, it is possible to set that the use of cookies should be deactivated. However, this entails restrictions which mean that not all functions offered on the website can be called up or executed.

Handling of personal data

The website operator is only permitted to collect, use and pass on personal data if this complies with the law or if the person concerned consents to the collection of the data.

Personal data is defined as all information that serves to identify a person as well as to trace him or her, such as the name, e-mail address or telephone number.

Handling of contact details

If you contact the website operator using the contact options provided (contact form or e-mail), your details will be saved so that they can be used to process and respond to your enquiry. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.

Data subjects’ rights of access, rectification and erasure

You have the following rights vis-à-vis MSR with regard to personal data concerning you:

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR serves as the basis when consent to process personal data is obtained from the respective individuals. On the other hand, Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR is the legal basis when personal data must be processed in order to comply with a contract and one of the parties to the contract is the data subject. The processing of personal data is legitimised for website operators or third parties by the fact that their legitimate interest can only be maintained and carried out as a result. However, the legitimate interest must take precedence over the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject. This legitimation is anchored in Article 6 para. 1 f) DSGVO.

Data protection for applications

The personal data of applicants are collected and processed by the responsible person. This is done exclusively to ensure the processing of the application procedure. The information is also processed electronically. This happens, among other things, when the applicant sends the application documents electronically to the person responsible at MSR.

For the purpose of processing the employment relationship, the data shall be stored in compliance with the statutory provisions, provided that the applicant concludes an employment contract. If this is not the case, the application documents will be automatically deleted no later than two months after the conclusion of the procedure (date of rejection by MSR to the applicant or vice versa), provided that this does not conflict with any legitimate interests.

Nature and purpose of the processing

We use Google Signals. This allows Google Analytics to collect additional information about users who have personalised ads enabled (interests and demographics) and ads can be delivered to these users in cross-device remarketing campaigns.

Google Analytics 4 has IP anonymisation enabled by default. Due to IP anonymisation, your IP address will be shortened by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. According to Google, the IP address transferred by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

Purposes of the data processing
On behalf of the operator Google will use this information to evaluate your pseudonymous use of the website and to compile reports on website activity. The reports provided by Google Analytics 4 serve to analyse the performance of our website.

Recipients of the data are/may be

Third country transfer
For the USA, the European Commission adopted a news adequacy decision on 10 July 2023. Google LLC is certified under the EU-US Privacy Framework. Since Google servers are distributed worldwide and a transfer to third countries (for example to Singapore) cannot be completely ruled out, we have also concluded the EU standard contractual clauses with the provider to establish an appropriate level of data protection in those countries.

Retention period
The data sent by us and linked to cookies are automatically deleted after 2 months. The maximum lifespan of Google Analytics cookies is 2 years. The deletion of data whose retention period has been reached occurs automatically once a month.

Legal basis
The legal basis for this data processing is your consent pursuant to Art.6 para.1 p.1 lit.a GDPR and § 25 para. 1 p.1 TTDSG.

You can withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future by accessing the cookie settings and changing your selection there. The lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation remains unaffected.

You can also prevent the storage of cookies from the outset by setting your browser software accordingly. However, if you configure your browser to reject all cookies, this may result in a restriction of functionalities on this and other websites.
