This privacy policy informs you about the type, scope and purpose of the processing of personal data (hereinafter referred to as “data”) within the scope of the provision of our services as well as within our online offer and the websites, functions and contents connected with it as well as external online presences, such as our social media profiles (hereinafter jointly referred to as “online offer”).

Purpose and legal basis of the processing

We process your personal data in accordance with the provisions of the European Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR) and the German 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 GDPR in conjunction with § 26 BDSG-neu and, if applicable, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR for the initiation or implementation of contractual relationships.
Furthermore, we may process your personal data if this is necessary to fulfil legal obligations (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR) or to defend asserted legal claims against us. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest is, for example, a duty of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG). If you give us 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 GDPR. Consent given can be revoked at any time with effect for the future (see section 9 of this privacy information).
If an employment relationship is established between you and us, we may, in accordance with Art. 88 GDPR in conjunction with § 26 BDSG-neu, further 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 for the exercise or fulfilment of the rights and obligations of the employee representation resulting from a law or a collective agreement, a company 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 you (name, address, contact details, etc.), information about your professional qualifications and school education, information about further professional training and, if applicable, other data that you provide to us in connection with your application.

Data sources

We process personal data that we receive from you by e-mail when you contact us or apply for a job, or that you send to us via our website.

Recipient of the data

We only pass on your personal data within our company to those areas and persons who need this data to fulfil contractual and legal obligations or to implement our legitimate interests.

Your personal data is processed on our behalf on the basis of order processing contracts in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. In these cases, we ensure that the processing of personal data is carried out in accordance with the provisions of the GDPR. The categories of recipients in this case are internet service providers and providers of applicant management systems and software.
Otherwise, 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.

Transfer to a third country

A 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 a maximum of six months after the end of the application process (e.g. notification of the rejection decision), unless longer storage is legally required or permitted. In addition, we only store your personal data insofar as this is 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 the event that you have consented to your personal data being stored for a longer period of time, we will store it in accordance with your declaration of consent.
If an employment relationship, apprenticeship or trainee relationship is established following the application process, your data will initially continue to be stored if necessary and permissible and then transferred to the personnel file. If applicable, you will receive an invitation to join our talent pool
following the application process. This allows us to continue to consider you in our selection of applicants for suitable vacancies in the future. If we have your consent to do so, we will store your application data in our talent pool in accordance with your consent or, if applicable, future consents.

Your rights

Every person concerned has the right of access under Article 15 of the GDPR, the right of rectification under Article 16 of the GDPR, the right of erasure under Article 17 of the GDPR, the right to restrict processing under Article 18 of the GDPR, the right of notification under Article 19 of the GDPR and the right to data portability under Article 20 of the GDPR. Furthermore, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority in accordance with Art. 77 DSGVO if you are of the opinion that the processing of your personal data is not lawful. The right of appeal is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy. If the processing of data is based on your consent, you are entitled to revoke your consent to the use of your personal data at any time in accordance with Art. 7 GDPR. Please note that the revocation is only effective for the future. Processing that took place before the revocation is not affected by this. 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 section 8 of this privacy information).

Right of objection
Insofar as the processing of your personal data is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 1 lit.f GDPR for the protection of legitimate interests, you have the right, in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR, to object to the processing of this data at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. We will then no longer process this personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing. These must override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing must serve the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

You are welcome to contact us to protect your rights.

Necessity of the provision of personal data

The provision of personal data in the context of application processes is neither legally nor contractually required. You are therefore not obliged to provide information about your personal data. Please note, however, that these are 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 any personal data, we cannot make a decision on the establishment of an employment relationship. We recommend that you only provide personal data in your application that is required to complete the application.

Automated decision making

Since the decision on your application is not based exclusively on automated processing, there is no automated decision in individual cases within the meaning of Article 22 of the GDPR.
