Insofar as special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 Para. 1 GDPR are voluntarily communicated during the application process, their processing is also carried out in accordance with Art. 9 Para. 2 lit. b GDPR (e.g. health data, such as severely disabled status or ethnic origin). Insofar as special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 Para. 1 GDPR are requested from applicants, their processing is also carried out in accordance with Art. 9 Para. 2 lit. a GDPR (e.g. health data if this is necessary for the exercise of a profession).

 

If provided, applicants can send us their applications using an online form on our website. The data is encrypted and transmitted to us in accordance with the state of the art.

Applicants can also send us their applications via email. However, please note that we cannot guarantee that emails will be encrypted. Our mail servers offer transport encryption, but it also depends on the sending mail servers and providers used whether an encrypted transmission is achieved. We can therefore not assume any responsibility for the transmission of the application between the sender and the receipt on our server and therefore recommend using the online form or the postal dispatch.

 

The data provided by the applicants can be processed by us in the event of a successful application for the purposes of the employment relationship. Otherwise, if the application for a job offer is not successful, the applicant's data will be deleted. Applicant data will also be deleted if an application is withdrawn, which applicants are entitled to do at any time.

 

Subject to a justified revocation of the applicants, the deletion will take place after six months at the latest, so that we can answer any follow-up questions to the application and meet our obligations to provide evidence from the Equal Treatment Act. Invoices for any reimbursement of travel expenses are archived in accordance with tax regulations.

 

 

Talent pool

As part of the application, we offer applicants the opportunity to enter our “talent pool” for a period of three years based on consent within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a. and Art. 7 GDPR.

 

The application documents in the talent pool will only be processed in the context of future job advertisements and the search for employees and will be destroyed at the latest after the deadline. Applicants are informed that their consent to being included in the talent pool is voluntary, has no influence on the current application process and that they can revoke this consent at any time in the future and declare an objection within the meaning of Art. 21 GDPR.
