When you visit our website, we also process data that your browser sends to our server (e.g. IP address, data and time that the website was visited, website address from which you visited our website (referrer-URL) and information about the files you called up).

The above-mentioned data is used to process your contact query and the application procedure (Legal base: § 26 Par. 1 S.1 in conjunction with Par. 8 S.2 BDSG (new)). If necessary, we also process your data to safeguard our legitimate interests, e.g. in our defence in case of legal disputes or for statistical purposes (Legal base: Art. 6 Par. 1 lit. f) DS-GVO) or due to statutory obligations (Legal base: Art. 6 Par. 1 lit. c) DS-GVO).

If you have given us your consent to process your data for specific purposes, the lawfulness of the processing is given on the basis of your consent (Legal base: § 26 Par. 2 BDSG (new) in conjunction with Art. 7 DS-GVO). You can revoke your consent at any time. Please note that your revocation only applies for the future. It does not apply to the processing carried out prior to your revocation.

4. Who receives my data?

The persons responsible for the application and selection process in the company have access to the data sent to us. The data are made available to the team leaders of the respective recruiting department. In addition, those departments in our company that need your data to fulfil contractual or statutory duties also receive your data. Agents (Art. 28 DSGVO) that we contract may also receive your data for these purposes. These include IT service providers and other service providers who help us with recruitment management. The data is not transferred to any other third parties outside the company.


5. How long is my data saved?

Your personal data are deleted within 6 months after your application was rejected. After this time, a so-called 'rump data reduction' is carried out; this data is only used for statistical analyses.

7. What data protection rights do I have?

You have the right to information pursuant to Art. 15 DS-GVO, the right to correction pursuant to Art. 16 DS-GVO, the right to deletion pursuant to Art. 17 DS-GVO, the right to restrict processing pursuant to Art. 18 DS-GVO and the right to data portability pursuant to Art. 20 DS-GVO. The restrictions pursuant to §§ 34 and 35 BDSG (new) apply to the right to information and deletion. You also have the right to submit a complaint to a data protection supervisory body (Art. 77 DS-GVO in conjunction with § 19 BDSG (new)).

If we process data to safeguard legitimate interests, you have the right, based on reasons relating to your personal situation, to object to the processing of your data (Art. 21 DS-GVO). If you revoke your processing consent, we will no longer process your data, unless we can provide compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh you interests, rights or freedom, or if processing serves to enforce, exercise or defend legal claims. The revocation can be sent in an informal form and, if possible, should be sent to one of the addresses stated in section 1.

If you have given your consent for your data to be processed, you can revoke this consent at any time. Please note that your revocation only applies for the future. It does not apply to the processing carried out prior to your revocation.
