Data privacy information for applicants

Purpose of the processing

The purpose of the processing is to complete your application process at our company. This is legally based on Art. 6 (1) or Art. 88 (1) of the GDPR.

Use of your personal data

The data stored in the application process includes your salutation, surname, name as well as the usual correspondence data such as the postal address, e-mail address and telephone numbers. A record is also kept of the application documents, such as the letter of application, curriculum vitae, professional qualification certificates, diplomas and work certificates.
This data shall only be stored, evaluated, processed or forwarded internally as part of your application.
The recipients of your application data can be:
a)    the HR department of the company
b)    the relevant department of the company
c)    employee representatives
d)    if applicable, other locations and departments of the company, provided that you have expressly consented to this disclosure.

Storage period

If no employment relationship is established between you and the company, your data will be deleted no later than six months after the application process completes, unless you have expressly consented to its further storage and use – especially as part of our talent pool.
If an employment relationship is established between you and the company, the information supplied in your application will be kept in the personnel file.

Your rights

You have the right to request access to personal data concerning you, as well as the right to the rectification, erasure and restriction of processing of your personal data.

In lieu of the right of erasure, the right to restriction of processing takes effect if the said erasure violates the statutory storage obligations or legitimate interests of the company. These can arise in application procedures, especially through the provisions of the German General Equal Treatment Act (AGG). You also have the right to data portability. You may withdraw your consent to the further processing of your personal data by the company at any time and without stating reasons.
Furthermore, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.

It is required to provide your personal data in order to complete the application process. By exercising your rights to erasure and restriction of processing, or by objecting to the further processing of your personal data, you invalidate your (further) participation in the application process.
