Data protection in applications and the application process

  1. Applications sent electronically or by mail to the responsible person are processed electronically or manually for the purpose of handling the application process. 
  2. We expressly point out that application documents with “special categories of personal data” according to Art. 9 DS-GVO (e.g. a photo that gives conclusions about your ethnic origin, religion or marital status), with the exception of a possible severe disability, which you wish to disclose of your own free will, are undesirable. You should submit your application without this data. This will not affect your chances of applying. 
  3. Legal bases for the processing are Art. 6 para. 1 S.1 lit. b) DS-GVO as well as § 26 BDSG n.F. 
  4. If an employment relationship is entered into with the applicant after completion of the application process, the applicant data will be stored in compliance with the relevant data protection regulations. If you are not offered a position after completion of the application process, your submitted letter of application including documents will be deleted 6 months after the rejection has been sent in order to be able to satisfy any claims and obligations to provide evidence in accordance with the AGG.

    Insofar as the processing is based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a), Art. 7 DS-GVO, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. The lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation is not affected by this.

    Insofar as we base the processing of your personal data on the balance of interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) DS-GVO, you may object to the processing. This is the case if the processing is not necessary, in particular, for the performance of a contract with you, which is shown by us in each case in the following description of the functions. When exercising such an objection, we ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we have done. In the event of your justified objection, we will review the merits of the case and either discontinue or adjust the data processing or show you our compelling legitimate grounds on the basis of which we will continue the processing.

    You can object to the processing of your personal data for purposes of advertising and data analysis at any time. You can exercise the right of objection free of charge. You can inform us of your advertising objection using the following contact details:

    – the processing is unlawful and you object to the erasure of the personal data and request instead the restriction of the use of the personal data;

    – the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but you need them for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims, or

    – if you object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 DS-GVO and it has not yet been determined whether the legitimate reasons of the controller outweigh your reasons. 

  6. Right to data portability
    You have a right to data portability according to Art. 20 DS-GVO, which means that you can receive the personal data we have stored about you in a structured, common and machine-readable format or request that it be transferred to another controller.
