We will not use your data in any form for automated decision-making or profiling.

Who receives your personal data? (Art. 13 clause 1 e, f GDPR)

In general, we do not disclose personal data to third parties, unless you have granted your consent to doing so or unless disclosure is required due to a corresponding legal provision. If we outsource parts of data processing to third parties by way of contract processing, we conclude corresponding contract processing agreements with these suppliers in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR.

We will process your data exclusively in Germany and have no intention of processing the data abroad.

For how long do we store the data? (Art. 13 clause 2 a GDPR)

If you send us your application documents on your initiative, we will ascertain whether we have a job opening available to begin with. If this is not the case, your documents will be deleted immediately or, if you have contacted us by post, they will be returned to you. We will only save a copy of the rejection letter.

If you apply following a job opportunity listing as part of the application process and if we do hire you for our team, we will archive or store your data with the personnel files in accordance with legal provisions. If our decision does not fall on you, well will save and archive your documents for no more than 6 months by way of justified interest (Art. 6 clause 1 f GDPR) for legal defence purposes regarding claims under the AGG.

It may be that we initially have no option for offering you a position, but that we would still like to remain in contact with you. In this case, we will only save your application if you have granted us consent to do so in advance.

We store data that we process based on your consent until consent is revoked or for no more than 2 years.

We store data that we process based on a justified interest for as long as the justified interest applies.
