GDPR Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR insofar as the data processing becomes necessary for us, e.g. in the context of legal proceedings (in Germany § 26 BDSG also applies).

The application process requires that applicants provide us with the applicant data. If we offer an online form, the necessary applicant data is marked, otherwise it results from the job descriptions and basically includes personal information, postal and contact addresses and the documents belonging to the application, such as cover letter, curriculum vitae and certificates. In addition, applicants can voluntarily provide us with additional information.

By submitting the application to us, the applicants agree to the processing of their data for the purposes of the application process in accordance with the type and scope set out in this data protection declaration.

Insofar as special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 Para. 1 GDPR are voluntarily communicated as part of the application process, they are also processed in accordance with Art. 9 Para. 2 lit. b GDPR (e.g. health data, such as severe disability or ethnic origin) .

If made available, applicants can send us their applications using an online form on our website. The data is transmitted to us in encrypted form using state-of-the-art technology.

Applicants can also send us their applications via email. However, we ask you to note that e-mails are generally not sent in encrypted form and that the applicants themselves must ensure that they are encrypted. We can therefore not assume any responsibility for the transmission path of the application between the sender and receipt on our server and therefore recommend using an online form or sending it by post. Because instead of applying via the online form and e-mail, applicants still have the option of sending us their application by post.

Otherwise, if the application for a job offer is not successful, the data of the applicants will be deleted.

The deletion takes place, subject to a justified revocation by the applicant, after a period of six months, so that we can answer any follow-up questions about the application and meet our obligations to provide evidence under the Equal Treatment Act.
