Which of your data do we process? And for what purposes?

We process the data you have sent us in connection with your application in order to check your suitability for the position (or, if applicable, other vacancies in our companies) and to carry out the application process.


On what legal basis is that based?

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data in this application procedure is primarily Section 26 BDSG in the version applicable from 25 May 2018. According to this, the processing of data required in connection with the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship is permissible. Should the data be required for legal prosecution after the conclusion of the application process, data processing may be carried out on the basis of the requirements of Art. 6 DSGVO, in particular to safeguard legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our interest then consists in the assertion or defence of claims.


How long will the data be stored?

Data of applicants will be deleted after 6 months in case of rejection. In the event that you have agreed to further storage of your personal data, we will transfer your data to our applicant pool. There, the data will be deleted after two years.
If you are accepted for a position during the application process, your data will be transferred to our personnel information system.


To which recipients is the data passed on?

After receipt of your application, your applicant data will be viewed by the Human Resources team. Suitable applications are then forwarded internally to the department heads for the respective open position. The further procedure is then coordinated. In principle, only those persons in the company have access to your data who need to know the data for the proper course of our application procedure.


Where is the data processed?

The data is processed on our self-hosted e-mail server.


Your rights as a “data subject“

You have the right to information about the personal data we process about you. In the case of a request for information that is not made in writing, we ask for your understanding that we may then require evidence from you to prove that you are the person you claim to be.

Furthermore, you have a right to correction or deletion or to restriction of processing, insofar as you are entitled to this by law.
Furthermore, you have a right to object the processing within the scope of the law. The same applies to the right to data portability.


Right of appeal

You can file a complaint with the supervisory authority responsible for you at any time. Your competent supervisory authority depends on the federal state of your residence, your work or the alleged violation.
