We assure that the collection, processing and use of your data will be carried out in accordance with applicable data protection law and all other legal provisions and that your data will be treated as strictly confidential.

Scope and purpose of data collection

When you send us an application, we process your related personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes in the context of job interviews, etc.) insofar as this is necessary to decide on the reasons for the necessary for an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is § 26 BDSG under German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR (general initiation of contracts) and, if you have given your consent, Article 6(s) of the Treaty. 1 lit. a GDPR. The consent can be revoked at any time. Your personal data will only be passed on within our company to persons involved in the processing of your application.

If the application is successful, the data submitted by you will be processed on the basis of § 26 BDSG and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR for the purpose of carrying out the employment relationship stored in our data processing systems.

Retention period of the data

If we cannot make you a job offer, you reject a job offer or withdraw your application, we reserve the right to use the data you provide on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f GDPR) up to 6 months from the date of the end of the application process (rejection or withdrawal of the application) with us. The data is then deleted and the physical application documents destroyed. The storage serves in particular for the purpose of proof in the event of a dispute. If it is apparent that the data will be required after expiry of the 6-month period (e.B. due to an imminent or pending legal dispute), deletion will only take place if the purpose for further storage no longer applies.

A longer retention can also take place if you have given appropriate consent (Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a GDPR) or if statutory retention obligations prevent deletion.

Admission to the applicant pool

If we do not make you a job offer, you may be able to add you to our applicant pool. In the case of admission, all documents and information from the application will be transferred to the applicant pool in order to contact you in case of suitable vacancies.

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

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

Our social media presences

Data processing by social networks

We maintain publicly accessible profiles on social networks. The social networks we use in detail can be found below.

Social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, etc. can usually comprehensively analyze your user behavior when you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.B. like buttons or advertising banners). By visiting our social media presences, numerous data protection-relevant processing operations are triggered. In detail:

If you are logged into your social media account and visit our social media presence, the operator of the social media portal can assign this visit to your user account. However, your personal data may also be collected if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portal. In this case, this data collection takes place, for example, via cookies that are stored on your device or by collecting your IP address.

With the help of the data collected in this way, the operators of the social media portals can create user profiles in which your preferences and interests are stored. In this way, interest-based advertising can be displayed to you inside and outside the respective social media presence. If you have an account with the respective social network, the interest-based advertising can be displayed on all devices on which you are logged in or were logged in.

Please also note that we cannot track all processing processes on the social media portals. Depending on the provider, further processing operations may therefore be carried out by the operators of the social media portals. Details can be found in the terms of use and privacy policy of the respective social media portals.

Legal basis

Our social media presences are intended to ensure the most comprehensive presence on the Internet. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The analysis processes initiated by the social networks may be based on deviating legal bases that must be specified by the operators of the social networks (e.B. consent within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR).

Controller and assertion of rights

If you visit one of our social media appearances (e.B. Facebook), we are jointly responsible with the operator of the social media platform for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. You can exercise your rights (information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability and complaint) in principle both vs. us as well as vs. the operator of the respective social media portal (e.B vs. Facebook).

Please note that despite the joint responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have full influence on the data processing operations of the social media portals. Our options are largely based on the corporate policy of the respective provider.

Memory duration

The data collected directly by us via the social media presence will be deleted from our systems as soon as you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies. Stored cookies remain on your device until you delete them. Mandatory legal provisions – in so special conditions Retention periods – remain unaffected.

We have no influence on the storage period of your data, which is stored by the operators of the social networks for their own purposes. For details, please contact the operators of the social networks directly (e.B. in their privacy policy, see below).
