Privacy policy

Thank you for your interest in our company. JATI’s management attaches particular importance to data protection.

It is generally possible to use JATI’s website without providing personal data. However, it may be necessary to process personal data if a data subject wishes to make use of special services provided by our company via our website. We generally obtain the consent of the data subject if it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing.

A data subject’s personal data, such as their name, e-mail address or telephone number, is processed in accordance with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with country-specific data protection regulations applicable to JATI.
This data will not be shared with third parties without your express consent.

Our company would like to take the opportunity in this Privacy Policy to inform the public about the nature, scope and purposes for which we collect, use and process personal data. Furthermore, data subjects will be informed of their rights via this Privacy Policy.

As controller, JATI has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure, to the greatest extent possible, the protection of personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, transmission via the Internet may have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. Accordingly, each data subject may also provide personal data to us using alternative means such as by telephone.

Data protection information for the use of Matomo

Our website uses the open source software tool Matomo (formerly PIWIK) to analyse the surfing behaviour of our users. A session cookie is used for this purpose. The following data is stored when you visit individual pages on our website:

1. Three bytes of the IP address of the calling system of the user
2. The web page viewed
3. The website from which the user reached the website accessed (referrer)
4. The sub-pages viewed via the website accessed
5. Length of stay on the website
6. Frequency of visiting the website

This software runs exclusively on our website’s servers. Personal data from our users is exclusively stored there. This data will not be shared with third parties.

The software is configured so that IP addresses are not completely stored, but rather the last byte of the IP address is masked (e.g., As a result it is no longer possible to associate the shortened IP address with the calling computer.

If you do not agree to the storage and analysis of this data related your visit, you may object to such storage and use at any time thereafter by mouse click. In this case, a so-called “opt-out cookie” will be stored in your browser which means that Matomo will not collect any session data. Please note that the complete deletion of your cookies means that the opt-out cookie will also be deleted and that you may need to re-enable it.

Contacting us

If you use our contact form or send us an e-mail, we will store information you have provided in the contact form, and any contact information you have provided there, in order to process you inquiry. We will not share this data without your consent.

Legal basis for processing

Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR provides a legal basis to our company for processing activities for which we have obtained consent for a specific processing purpose. If processing personal data is necessary to perform a contract for which the data subject is our contractual partner, for example cases in which processing activities are required in order to deliver goods, to provide other services or returns, the respective processing is based on Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR. The same applies to those processing activities that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual actions, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. Processing is based on Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR in cases where our company is subject to a legal obligation to process personal data, for example in order to comply with obligations under tax law. In rare cases, it may be necessary to process personal data to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were to be injured and their name, age, health insurance details or other vital information were then to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Processing would be based on Art. 6(1)(d) GDPR in such cases. Finally, processing activities may be based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. This provision provides the legal basis for processing activities that are not included under any of the legal bases referred to above where such processing is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests, or those of a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject. Without limitation, such processing activities are permitted whilst they were specifically referenced by European lawmakers. In this regard, they were of the opinion that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject was a customer of the controller (Recital 47, second sentence GDPR).

Period for which personal data is stored

The respective statutory retention period comprises the criterion for determining the period for which data is stored. After the expiry of this period, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer necessary for the fulfilment or initiation of a contract.
Statutory or contractual provisions regarding the supply of personal data; necessity for conclusion of a contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data concerned; potential consequences of failing to provide data
We will inform you of instances in which the provision of personal data is required by law to some extent (e.g., tax laws) or where such an obligation may arise by virtue of contract (e.g., information about the contractual partner). In some cases, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide personal data to us in order to conclude a contract that we will then need to process. For example, data subjects are obliged to provide us personal data in cases where we conclude a contract with them. Failure to provide this personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. The data subject must contact company management or the data protection officer prior to providing personal data.

Newsletter data

If you would like to subscribe to the newsletter offered on our website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter.

We save your IP address and the date of registration when you register for the newsletter. The sole purpose for such storage is be able to provide verification in the event that a third party misuses an e-mail address and registers to receive the newsletter without the knowledge of the owner of the e-mail address concerned.

You can withdraw consent to the storage of your data and e-mail address as well as their use for sending the newsletter at any time. You can use the link provided in the newsletter itself for this purpose or notify us using the contact information we have provided.

No additional data is collected. We only use this data to send the requested information and do not share it with third parties.

Data protection in the case of job applications and the application process

The controller collects and processes personal data from applicants for the purpose of conducting the application process. Processing may also be carried out electronically. Without limitation, this is the case when an applicant submits relevant application documents to the controller by electronic means, e.g. by e-mail. If the controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, data that has been transmitted will be stored for the purpose of conducting the employment relationship in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application file will be deleted after notification of the decision to reject the application provided that deletion does not conflict with any other legitimate interest of the controller. In this context, other legitimate interests may include, for example, burden of proof requirements in proceedings under the General Act on Equal Treatment (AGG).

Data protection provisions related to the integration and use of Facebook

The controller has integrated components provided by the Facebook company on this website. Facebook is a social network.

A social network is a social meeting place operated on the Internet; an online community that generally allows users to communicate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences or enable the online community to provide personal or business-related information. Facebook enables social network users to create personal profiles, upload photos and, among other things, to create networks by means of friend requests.

Facebook is operated by Facebook Inc, 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. The respective controller is Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland for data subjects who reside outside of the United States or Canada.

Each time you access a page on this website operated by the respective data controller on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) is integrated, the web browser on the data subject’s IT system is automatically prompted by such Facebook components to display the Facebook components concerned. A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at Facebook obtains information about which specific sub-pages on our website were accessed by the data subject during the course of this technical process.

If the data subject is logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook is able to view which specific sub-pages on our website were accessed by the data subject each time our website is accessed and for the entire time a data subject is visiting our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and Facebook associates such data with the respective data subject’s Facebook account. If a data subject clicks one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the “Like” button, or if a data subject makes a comment, Facebook associates this information with the respective data subject’s Facebook account and stores this personal data.

In all cases, the Facebook component informs Facebook that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged-in to Facebook at the time they access our website; this happens regardless of whether the data subject clicks the Facebook component. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to Facebook, they can prevent such transmission by logging out of their Facebook account before accessing our website.

Facebook’s Privacy Policy, which is available at, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains which setting options Facebook offers to protect data subjects’ privacy. In addition, various applications are available that make it possible to prevent the transmission of data to Facebook. Data subjects can use these applications in order to prevent the transmission of data to Facebook.


Our website uses plugins from the Google-operated website YouTube. YouTube is the operator of such websites. A connection to the YouTube servers is established if you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plugin.

The YouTube server is then informed about which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you allow YouTube to associate your surfing habits directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

SSL encryption

This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests you send to us as a site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection in your browser’s address bar when it changes from “http://” to “https://” and the lock icon is displayed in your browser’s address bar.

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

Integration of third-party services and content

In some instances, content from third parties, such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites, may be integrated into our website. In all cases, this requires the respective provider of such content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) to view the user’s IP address. This is the case because they could not send content to the respective user’s browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of the respective content. We strive to only use content whose respective provider uses the IP address solely for the delivery of content. However, we have no influence on whether the third-party providers store the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. We will provide this information to users should we have it.
