- For what purposes and on what legal basis do we process personal data?
We process personal data about you for the purpose of your application for employment where this is necessary for a decision on whether to establish an employment relationship between you and us. The legal basis is section 26 (1) in conjunction with (8) 2nd sentence BDSG (German data protection act).
We can also process personal data about you where this is necessary for defence against legal claims asserted against us arising from the application process. The legal basis is article 6 (1) letter f GDPR; the legitimate interest is, for example, the obligation to furnish evidence in proceedings under the German general act on equal treatment (AGG).
If an employment relationship is established between you and us, we can, under section 26 (1) BDSG, further process the personal data already received from you for the purposes of the employment relationship, if this is necessary for the performance or ending of the employment relationship, or for the exercise of the rights and fulfilment of the duties of the employee representative body, as laid down in a law or a wage agreement or a labour-management or service agreement (collective bargaining agreement).
- Which categories of personal data do we process?
We process data which are related to your application. These can be general data about you personally (such as name, address, contact data), information on your professional qualifications and schooling, or information on further professional training, or other information which you let us have in connection with your application. We can in addition process occupation-related information which you have made accessible to the general public, for example a profile on professional social media networks.
- What are the categories of recipients of your personal data?
Application by email:
If you submit your application by electronic means, i.e. by email, the data are forwarded to the heads of departments inside the company who have (shared) responsibility for deciding on your application. The members of our staff who are involved in the application process are specially trained, explicitly obliged to maintain confidentiality, and required not to replicate your application documents.
Applications in paper form
If you submit your application in paper form (hard copy), the data are forwarded to the heads of departments inside the company who have (shared) responsibility for deciding on your application. For this purpose it may be necessary for your documents, or some of your documents, to be copied. The members of our staff who are involved in the application process are specially trained, explicitly obliged to maintain confidentiality, and forbidden to make any further copies of your application documents. In pursuance of the obligation to furnish evidence, we will retain your application documents for the period stated above. Thereafter, any copies of your application documents that may exist will be securely destroyed (by shredder). Your original documents will be returned to you in discharge of our obligation.
We can transfer your personal data to companies affiliated to you, provided this is permissible in terms of the purposes and legal bases set out in section 3.
