Categories of data used
As part of the application procedure, the controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. The processing may also be carried out by electronic means if the applicant submits his or her application documents by electronic means. This involves the following data:

  • Title, first name, surname, name affixes, nationality
  • E-mail address
  • Address
  • Telephone number (fixed and/or mobile)
  • Application documents (letter of application, curriculum vitae, references, certificates etc.)
  • Additional voluntary information (birthday, target annual salary, etc.)

Where necessary, we may also process data lawfully received from other offices or third parties. The same applies to personal data that can be obtained from publicly accessible sources (such as commercial register, press, Internet, social networks and other media) in a permissible manner, insofar as this data may be processed in accordance with the statutory provisions.

Purpose and legal basis of data collection, processing and use

We process your personal data in compliance with the provisions of the EU Data Protection Basic Regulation (DS-GVO), the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and all other relevant laws (e.g. BetrVG, ArbZG, etc.).

In the first instance, the data processing serves the purpose of carrying out the pre-contractual measure of the application procedure. The primary legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) b) DS-GVO in conjunction with Art. 26 (1) BDSG, according to which personal data may be processed if this is necessary for the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship.


Duration of data storage

Personal data will be deleted, unless there are legal retention periods. If no employment contract is concluded with the applicant, this will be the case no later than three months after completion of the application procedure. If we are unable to offer you a vacant position at the moment, and we believe that your skills may be of interest for a future job offer, we will contact you to arrange for a longer storage of your personal data. If an employment relationship is concluded with the applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship.
