7. Our services

Handling of applicant data

We offer you the opportunity to apply for a job with us (e.g. by e-mail, by post or via online application form). In the following we inform you about the scope, purpose and use of the personal data collected during the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing and use of your data will be in accordance with the applicable data protection laws and all other legal requirements, and that your data will be treated in strict confidence.

Scope and purpose of data collection

If you send us an application, we will process your associated personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes taken during job interviews, etc.) insofar as this is necessary to decide on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is § 26 of the BDSG-neu (new German Data Protection Act) under German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b of the GDPR (general contract initiation) and – if you have given your consent – Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a of the GDPR. Consent can be revoked at any time. Within our company, your personal data will only be passed on to persons who are involved in the processing of your application.

If the application is successful, the data submitted by you will be stored in our data processing systems on the basis of § 26 of the BDSG-neu (new German Data Protection Act) and Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b of the GDPR for the purpose of carrying out the employment relationship.

Duration of storage of the data

If we are unable to offer you a job, if you reject a job offer or if you withdraw your application, we reserve the right to keep the data you have submitted with us for up to 6 months from the end of the application procedure (rejection or withdrawal of the application) on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR). The data is then deleted and the physical application documents destroyed. The storage is especially for the purpose of proof in case of a legal dispute. If it is evident that the data will be required after the 6-month period (e.g. due to an imminent or pending legal dispute), the data will only be deleted when the purpose for further storage no longer applies.

A longer storage period can also take place if you have given your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a of the GDPR) or if legal storage obligations prevent deletion.

Inclusion in the applicant pool

If we do not make you a job offer, there may be the possibility of including you in our pool of applicants. In the event of inclusion, all documents and details from the application will be transferred to the applicant pool in order to contact you in the event of suitable vacancies.

Admission to the applicant pool is based solely on your express consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a of the GDPR). Giving consent is voluntary and has no relation to the ongoing application process. The person concerned can revoke their consent at any time. In this case, the data will be irrevocably deleted from the applicant pool, unless there are legal reasons for retention.

The data will be irrevocably deleted from the applicant pool no later than two years after consent has been granted.
