Data protection for applications and in the application process

We process personal data about you for the purpose of your application for an employment relationship, insofar as this is necessary for the decision to establish an employment relationship with us. The legal basis is § 26 Paragraph 1 in conjunction with Paragraph 8 Sentence 2 BDSG. This includes general information about you (such as your name, address and contact details), information about your professional qualifications and schooling or information about professional training or other information you provide us in connection with your application.

Furthermore, we may process personal data about you insofar as this is necessary to defend against legal claims asserted against us in the application process. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 Paragraph 1, Letter f GDPR; the legitimate interest is, for example, a duty of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

Insofar as an employment relationship exists between you and us, we may process the personal data already received from you for the purposes of the employment relationship in accordance with Section 26 (1) BDSG if this is necessary for the performance or termination of the employment relationship or for exercising or fulfilling the rights and obligations of the employees' representation of interests resulting from a law or collective agreement (collective agreement).

We store your personal data as long as this is necessary to make a decision on your application. If an employment relationship between you and us does not materialize, we may also further store data up to 6 month, insofar as this is necessary to defend against possible legal claims. Immediate deletion is then precluded by Art. 17 (3) (e) GDPR (DSGVO).
