General: What categories of data does the company I have applied to use and where do they come from?

The processed categories of personal data include in particular your so-called master data (such as first name, surname, name extensions, nationality, birthday), contact data (such as private address, (mobile) telephone number, e-mail address) and other data from your certificates/documents attached to the application, such as grades, assessments, etc.

As a rule, this personal data is collected directly during the selection process for the position to be filled. In addition, we may have received data from third parties (e.g. employment agencies). We collect this data only to the extent that it has been lawfully transmitted to us.

It may also happen that we process personal data that we have obtained from publicly accessible sources (e.g. professional networks such as XING, etc.).

For what purposes and on what legal basis is my data processed?  

We process your personal data on the basis of the provisions of the EU Data Protection Basic Regulation (DSGVO), the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) or the Data Protection Act (DSG) and all other relevant laws.  

First and foremost, data processing serves the selection process for the position to be filled. The primary legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 b) DSGVO. In addition, collective agreements (group, collective and works agreements as well as collective agreements) pursuant to Art. 88 (1) DSGVO and consents pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a), 7 DSGVO may be used as data protection licensing provisions.  If the processing of your data is based on consent, you have the right at any time to revoke the consent with effect for the future.  

In individual cases we process your data in order to protect legitimate interests of us or of third parties (e.g. authorities). In addition, under the European anti-terror ordinances 2580/2001 and 881/2002, we are obliged to check your applicant data against the so-called "EU Terror Lists" at the latest before an invitation to an interview in order to ensure that no funds or other economic resources are made available for terrorist purposes.   Should we wish to process your personal data for a purpose not mentioned above, we will inform you of this beforehand. 

Who gets my data?  

Within our company, only the persons and positions (e.g. specialist department, works council, severely handicapped representatives) who are normally involved with the application and need your data for the purpose of selecting candidates receive your personal data.  

Within our group of companies, we reserve the right to transfer your data to affiliated companies in the sense of stock corporation law if your application should also be of interest to these companies. Should we wish to make use of this right in your case, we will inform you of this separately and ask for your consent in advance.  

If these are companies outside the European Economic Area (EEA), we would also request your prior consent. In these cases, the transfer is carried out on the basis of the binding internal company data protection regulations (BCR). We will provide you with detailed information on request. 

What data protection rights can I assert as a data subject?  

You can request information from us about the personal data stored about you. In addition, under certain circumstances you may request the correction or deletion of your data. If we process your data to safeguard legitimate interests, you may object to this processing for reasons arising from your particular situation. You may also have a right to limit the processing of your data and a right to have the data you provide disclosed in a structured, common and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority (see above).

How long will my data be stored?  

We will delete your personal data as soon as they are no longer required for the above-mentioned purposes, at the latest six months after receipt of the rejection. After completion of the selection process and filling of the vacant position, your personal data will be stored for as long as we are legally obliged to do so.  

In the event that claims are asserted against us, the time for which personal data may be stored may be extended (statutory limitation period of three or up to thirty years). 

Applicant data should be stored longer?  

In the event that we wish to store your application (your personal data) for a period of more than six months in order to be able to return to it in the event of another vacant position in our company, we will contact you separately in writing and ask you for your consent in this regard. The storage periods are then 2 years. The assertion of your rights remains unaffected by this.
