§ 5 Online – Job Applications
The following information concerns all job applications sent to us due to a job advertisement on our website, via Stepstone or because of your unsolicited application via email. It applies to applicants for an employment as well as for an apprenticeship or for a work placement.
For us the protection of your personal data during the application process is a vested concern. The purpose of processing your personal data is the assessment of your potential for an employment or an apprenticeship in our company (selection of applicants) based on your application documents (applicant information). For this reason we process the information you provide to us:
Personal data (first and last name, date of birth, place of birth, address), communication data (telephone number, mobile phone number, e-mail address), education related data (school, vocational training, community or military service, academic studies, academic degrees), career data (certificates on education and work) and applicant photo.
Legal basis for the processing of your personal data is § 26 of the Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDGS, Germany’s Data Protection Act).
We use the personal data you transmit to us exclusively to process your application for the posted vacancy. Your data only will be shared with staff members in our company who are involved in the application process. All of our staff members who are entrusted with processing data are obligated to keep all data confidential. We will not share your personal data with any third parties unless it is with your expressed previous consent or if we are obligated to do so by law and/or upon an order by an authority or court.
Your personal data will be erased automatically within 6 months after the specific application process has been concluded, unless you expressly consented to an extended storage period or upon conclusion of an employment contract. This rule does not apply if and when erasure is contradicted by any legal provision, if storage is necessary to uphold a line of argument, or if you expressly consented to an extended storage period.
The provision of your applicant information is voluntary. You can revoke your consent at any time. Please note that such revocation applies to the future only. Any processing carried out before you submit your revocation will not be affected. If and when you revoke your consent to the processing of your personal data, we will erase your information from our applicant database.
If you send your job application via Stepstone, please find further information in the data privacy statement of Stepstone.
