Purposes and Legal Basis of the Processing

We process your personal data in accordance with the provisions of the European Data Protection Basic Regulation (EU-GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), insofar as this is necessary for the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship with us. The legal basis for this is Art. 88 DSGVO in conjunction with § 26 BDSG-neu as well as Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b, if applicable, DSGVO for the initiation or implementation of contractual relationships.

Furthermore, we may process personal data if this is necessary to fulfil legal obligations (Art. 6 para 1 lit. c DSVGO) or to defend against legal claims made against us. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para 1 lit. f DSVGO. The legitimate interest is, for example, an obligation to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG – Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz). If you give us your express consent to process personal data for specific purposes, the lawfulness of this processing is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSVGO. A given consent can be revoked at any time, with effect for the future (see information on the right of objection in this data privacy information).

If there is an employment relationship between you and us, we may, in accordance with Art. 88 DSVGO in conjunction with Art. 26 BDSG-neu, process the personal data already received from you for the purposes of the employment relationship, insofar as this is necessary for the implementation or termination of the employment relationship or to exercise or fulfil the rights and obligations of employee representation arising from a law or a collective agreement, a works or service agreement (collective agreement).

Categories of Personal Data

We only process data that is related to your application. This can be general data about your person (name, address, contact data, etc.), information about your professional qualifications and educational background, information about further professional training and, if applicable, other data that you send us in connection with your application.

Data Sources

We process personal data which we receive from you by letter or e-mail when you contact us or send us your application.

Recipients of the Data

Within our company, we only pass on your personal data to those units and persons who need this data to fulfil contractual and legal obligations or to implement our legitimate interests. Furthermore, data will only be passed on to recipients outside the company if this is permitted or required by law, if the transfer is necessary to fulfil legal obligations or if we have your consent.

Data Transfer to a Third Country

A data transfer to a third country is not intended.

Duration of Data Storage

We store your personal data as long as this is necessary for the decision on your application. Your personal data or application documents will be deleted after a maximum of six months after the end of the application procedure (e.g. notification of the decision to reject your application), unless longer storage is legally required or permitted. Beyond this, we only store your personal data to the extent required by law or in a specific case for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims for the duration of a legal dispute.

In case you have agreed to a longer storage of your personal data, we store them according to your declaration of consent.

If an employment, training or work experience relationship arises after the application procedure, your data will continue to be stored, if necessary and permissible, and then transferred to the personnel file.

Your Rights

Every person concerned has the right of disclosure under Art. 15 DSGVO, the right of rectification under Art. 16 DSGVO, the right of deletion under Art. 17 DSGVO, the right to restrict processing under Art. 18 DSGVO, the right of communication under Art. 19 DSGVO and the right to data transferability under Art. 20 DSGVO. 

In addition, you have the right of appeal to a data privacy authority in accordance with Art. 77 DSGVO if you believe that your personal data is not being processed lawfully. The right of appeal is without prejudice to any other administratrive oder judicial remedy.

If the processing of data is based on your consent, you are entitled to revoke your consent to the use of you personal data at any time in accordance with Art. 7 DSGVO. Please note that the revocation is only effective for the future.

Processing operations that took place before the revoaction are not affected. Please also note that we may need to retain certain data for a certain period of time in order to comply with legal requirements (see information on the duration of data retention in this data privacy information).

Right of Objection

Insofar as the processing of your personal data pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f  DSGVO is carried out to safeguard legitimate interests, you have the right pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO to object to the processing of such data at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. We will then no longer process this personal data unless we can prove imperative reasons for processing worthy of protection. These must outweigh your interests, rights and liberties, or the processing must server to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

You are welcome to contact us to protect your rights.

Need to Provide Personal Data

The provision of personal data in the context of application processes is not required by law or contract. You are therefore not obliged to provide any information about your personal data. Please note, however, that this information is necessary for the decision on an application or the conclusion of a contract in relation to an employment relationship with us. If you do not provide us with personal information, we cannot make a decision about employment. We recommend that you provide only such personal data in your application as is necessary to complete the application.
