In the following, we inform you about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected during the application process. We assure that the collection, processing and use of your data is carried out in accordance with applicable data protection law and all other legal provisions and that your data is treated strictly confidential.

19.1.Scope and purpose of data collection

The legal basis for this is § 26 BDSG under German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR (general contract initiation) and if you have given consent Art. 6 para. 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 who are involved in the processing of your application.

The submission of consent is voluntary and is not related to the current application process. The person concerned may revoke his or her consent at any time. In this case, the data will be irrevocably deleted from the applicant pool, unless there are statutory retention reasons.

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