Personal data in the context of the application process

Personal data is information about the personal or factual circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes information such as your name, address, telephone number and date of birth, but also data about your specific career, etc., which can be assigned to a specific person with reasonable effort. Information that is not (un)indirectly associated with your real identity, on the other hand, is not personal data.

Principles and purposes for processing personal data for applications and in the application process

If you apply to us electronically, i.e. by e-mail or via our web form, we will collect and process your personal data for the purpose of processing the application procedure and carrying out pre-contractual measures.
By submitting an application on our recruiting page, you express your interest in taking up employment with us. In this context, you provide us with personal data that we use and store exclusively for the purpose of your job search/application.
In particular, the following data is collected:
Name (first and last name)
E-mail address
Telephone number
LinkedIn profile (optional)
Channel, how you became aware of us 

You also have the option of uploading meaningful documents such as a cover letter, your resume and references. These may contain further personal data such as date of birth, address, etc.
Only authorized employees from the HR department or employees involved in the application process have access to your data.

Personal data is stored exclusively for the purpose of filling the vacant position for which you have applied.

Your data will be stored for a period of 90 days beyond the end of the application process. As a rule, this is done to fulfill legal obligations or to defend against any claims arising from legal regulations. Subsequently, we are obliged to delete or anonymize your data. In this case, the data is only available to us as so-called metadata without direct personal reference for statistical evaluations (for example, proportion of women or men in applications, number of applications per period, etc.).

In addition, we reserve the right to store your data for inclusion in our "Talent Pool" for 90 days after the end of the application process in order to identify any other interesting positions for you. This also applies, for example, to applications for apprenticeships or internships. By accepting the privacy policy, you consent to the possible further storage of your data and inclusion in our "Talent Pool".
If you receive an offer of employment with us during the application process and accept this offer, we will store the personal data collected during the application process for at least the duration of the employment relationship. 

Disclosure of data to third parties

The data transmitted as part of your application will be transferred via TLS encryption and stored in a database. This database is operated by Personio GmbH, which offers personnel administration and applicant management software ( Personio is our order processor in this context according to Art. 28 DS-GVO. The basis for the processing here is an order processing contract between us as the controller and Personio. 

Data subject rights

If personal data is processed by us as the controller, you as the data subject have, depending on the legal basis and purpose of the processing, certain rights under Chapter III of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), including, where applicable, in particular the right to information (Art.15 DS-GVO), right to rectification (Art.16 DS-GVO), right to erasure (Art. 17 DS-GVO), right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 DS-GVO), right to data portability (Art. 20 DS-GVO), right to object (Art. 21 DSGVO).
