3. purposes, sources and legal basis of the processing
3.1 Application
We process your personal data in the context of your application in order to evaluate your suitability for a specific position. As far as we ask you for additional data, the provision of such data is voluntary. We use this data to get to know you better; the information you provide has no influence on the result of the application process.

  • The legal basis for the processing of your applicant data required for the application is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DS-GVO, § 26 para. 1 BDSG.
  • The legal basis for the processing of your other data marked as voluntary is your consent, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO.

We collect the above-mentioned personal data directly from you. If you make use of the possibility of transferring certain data from your profile to a business network (e.g. Xing, LinkedIn), the data provided there will be transferred to us in accordance with your consent to the network operator.

In the context of your application, the provision of sensitive data (special categories of personal data) within the meaning of Art. 9 para. 1 DS-GVO (e.g. information on marital status, which may provide information about your sex life or sexual orientation; information about your health) is not required.

If you nevertheless provide us with the relevant data (e.g. a photograph showing you with a visual aid and thus enabling us to draw conclusions about impaired vision), you expressly consent to their processing. If you are a minor, the consent must be given by a legal guardian.

  • The legal basis for the processing of special categories of personal data is your consent, Art. 9 para. 2 letter a DS-GVO, Art. 6 para. 1 letter a DS-GVO.
  • If the processing is necessary for us to be able to fulfil our obligations under labour law, social security law and social protection law, the legal basis for processing is Art. 9 Paragraph 2 lit. b DS-GVO.

3.2 Talent pool
We maintain a talent pool in which suitable and interested applicants to whom we cannot make a concrete job offer in the context of their application can be accepted at their own request.

If a position matching your profile is advertised, we will contact you to clarify your interest in this specific position. We will normally contact you by telephone or e-mail to the contact details provided in your application.

  • The legal basis for the inclusion of your application data in our talent pool is your consent, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO.
  • The legal basis for contacting us is possible measures to initiate a contract, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DS-GVO.

We receive the data included in the talent pool from your application documents as well as from any interviews, questionnaires or assessments that may already have been conducted. The willingness to be included in our talent pool has no influence on the outcome of an application procedure.

4. recipient of your personal data
We do not transfer your personal data to third parties unless this is mandatory, e.g. due to legal regulations. Service providers who may support us in the application process (e.g. operators of the technical platform) are bound by contracts in accordance with Art. 28 DS-GVO.

If we exchange applicant data or data from the talent pool with subsidiaries, this is done on the basis of a contract in accordance with Art. 26 DS-GVO.

If the subsidiary is located in a third country, i.e. outside the EU / EEA, for which no decision on appropriateness has been made, we have agreed standard contractual clauses with the respective recipient.

5. storage period
5.1 Application
We will transfer your successful application to your personnel file. If we were unable to consider your application and you have decided not to be included in our talent pool, we will delete your application data 6 months after the rejection.

5.2 Talent pool
If you have decided to join our talent pool, we will store your data there for 18 months, starting at the end of your application process (as long as you have not been hired).

Please inform us of any changes to your data so that we can contact you, for example.

If you wish to leave the Talent Pool, you can revoke your consent at any time. In this case we will delete your data from the Talent Pool immediately.

  • Right to object to the processing - if the processing is carried out on the basis of our predominant legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f DS-GVO, you can object to the processing at any time with effect for the future.
