6. Own services

Handling applicant data
We offer you the opportunity to apply for a job at our company (e.g. by e-mail, by post or via online application form). In the following, we inform you about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected within the framework of the application process. We warrant that the collection, processing and use of your data is in compliance with the applicable data protection legislation and all other statutory provisions and that your data will be treated as strictly confidential.

Scope and purpose of the data collection
When you send us an application, we process your associated personal data (e.g. contact and communication details, application documents, notes within the scope of job interviews, etc.) provided this is necessary for a decision on the justification of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this under German law is Section 26 of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) (new) (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR (general contract initiation) and – provided consent has been given – Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. Consent can be revoked at any time. Your personal data will be disclosed exclusively to persons within our company that are involved in the processing of your application.

If your application is successful, the data that you submitted on the basis of Section 26 BDSG (new) and Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR for the purpose of executing the employment relationship are stored in our data processing systems.

Retention period for the data
If we cannot make you a job offer, if you refuse a job offer or withdraw your application, we reserve the right to retain the data transmitted by you in our systems for a period of up to 6 months as of the end of the application process (refusal or withdrawal of the application) on the basis of our legitimate interest (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR). The data are then erased and the physical application documents are destroyed. The retention is particularly for evidence purposes in the event of a legal dispute. If, after the six-month period has passed, it is evident that the data will be required (e.g due to an imminent or pending legal dispute), the data will only be erased once the purpose for the ongoing retention ceases to apply.

A longer retention can also take place if you have granted the corresponding consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR) or if statutory retention obligations prevent the erasure.

Inclusion in the pool of applicants
If we do not make you a job offer, there may be the possibility of including you in our pool of applicants. In the event that you are included in the pool, all documents and information from the application are transferred to the pool of applicants so that you can be contacted in the event of suitable vacancies.

Inclusion in the pool of applicants takes place exclusively on the basis of your express consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR). The granting of consent is voluntary and has no bearing on the ongoing application process. The data subject can revoke his/her consent at any time. In this case, the data are permanently erased from the pool of applicants if no statutory retention reasons apply.

The data from the pool of applicants will be permanently erased no later than two years after consent is granted.
