The processing of data, such as your name, address and other contact details, as well as other information, is always carried out in accordance with the legal requirements (DSGVO - German Data Protection Regulation and BDSG-neu - German Federal Data Protection Act).

Personal data" includes all information relating to an identified or identifiable person, such as name, address and e-mail address. Processing of your data means any use by us, such as the use, storage, deletion or disclosure of such data.

We need your data to decide whether we want to enter into an employment relationship with you. This relates in particular to data on your professional qualifications as well as your knowledge and skills.

As the controller, we have taken what we consider to be the necessary technical and organizational measures to ensure the most comprehensive protection of your personal data. However, we cannot guarantee that there will be no security gaps when data is transmitted via the Internet. For this reason, we offer you the option of sending us your application documents by post.

Categories of data we process and indication of the source from which the data originate

When you apply for a job with us, we will receive personal data from you and, where applicable, from third parties.

This information is in particular your personal details (for example, name, date of birth, gender, address) and your professional qualifications. In addition, personal data may result from the documentation of a job interview or from evaluation documents prepared by us.

If you have an account on a career-oriented social network, such as Xing or LinkedIn, we may also collect the data from your publicly viewable profile page.

Purpose of processing and legal basis

We process your personal data solely for the purpose of conducting the application process.

Should we conclude an employment contract with you, your personal data (i.e. your name, address, telephone number, references, etc.) may also be processed for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions.

In this case, we will inform you again about the processing of your personal data within the scope of the employment relationship.

The legal basis for the processing of your data is Section 26 (1) sentence 1 BDSG in conjunction with the provisions of the DSGVO.

The processing may also be necessary to protect our legitimate interests as a company, provided that your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms do not override (Article 6 para. 1. lit. f DSGVO). In the event that we invoke the existence of legitimate interests as justification for data processing, these legitimate interests derive from Articles 12 and 14 of the German Basic Law.

In addition, processing may also be justified if you have given your consent to the processing of personal data relating to you for one or more specific purposes, such as with regard to the consideration of your application for future job advertisements (Article 6 para. 1. lit. a DSGVO). It may be possible that, in addition to the consent you have given, we are also entitled to process on the basis of one of the above-mentioned legal provisions.

In the event that we rely on your consent as justification for data processing, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time. In doing so, please note that the revocation does not subsequently eliminate the lawfulness of the data processing.

Disclosure of data

Internally, the employees in the HR department responsible for carrying out the application procedure and colleagues from the respective specialist departments concerned will have access to your data, insofar as this is necessary for the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship.

Storage period

We will store your personal data only to the extent that and for as long as it is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected by us or provided to us by you. We therefore store your personal data as follows:

  • for the duration of the application process;
  • if your application was unsuccessful, after notification of the rejection decision, for as long as we need the data to clarify inquiries or disputes;
  • if you have expressly consented that we should also consider your application in future job postings, your data may also be stored for a correspondingly longer period of time;
  • if there is a corresponding legal obligation to store it for a longer period, for the duration of this legal period.

After the purpose of storage has ceased to apply or a statutory storage period has expired, we will delete your personal data in accordance with the statutory provisions.

Your rights

You are entitled to the following rights under the DSGVO:

  • According to Art. 15 DSGVO, you can request information about the processing of your personal data.
  • If the personal data processed by us is incorrect or incomplete, you may request its correction in accordance with Art. 16 DSGVO.
  • Under the conditions of Art. 17 and 18 DSGVO, you may request the deletion and restriction of the processing of your personal data.
  • In the event that the processing of your personal data is based on your consent, you have the right to data portability in accordance with Art. 20 DSGVO. This means that both you yourself can receive the data in a structured, common and machine-readable format, and you can request that it be transferred to a third party if this is technically feasible.

To exercise the aforementioned rights, you can contact us at the above address. If you would like to know more about your rights, you can of course also contact the company data protection officer at the address given.

Insofar as the processing of your personal data is carried out to safeguard our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO, you may object to this processing in accordance with the legal requirements in Art. 21 DSGVO.

In addition to the rights mentioned above, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority responsible for us if you believe that the processing of your personal data is not carried out lawfully.
