DSVGO art. 6 section 1 lit. f. DSVGO provided that processing the data e. g. in a legal process becomes necessary (in Germany § 26 BDSG applies additionally).

The application process requires that the applicants personally send us the application data. The necessary applicant data result from the job description. Generally, these are information on person, postal and contact addresses as well as the corresponding documents for a job application such as letter, curriculum vitae, certificates and references. Furthermore, additional information which provides the applicant without a request.
Submitting the application to us, the applicants agree to processing their data for the purpose of the application procedure according to the way and extent stated in this privacy notice.
Should specific personal data according to art. 9 section 1 GDPR be given in the course of the application procedure voluntarily, its handling is additionally effected as per art. 9 section 2 lit. b GDPR (as e. g. health data, status of severe disability or ethnic origin).

Applicants can submit their application also by means of the contact form on our website. The data is transmitted in encrypted form according to the state of the art.
Furthermore, applications can be sent to us by email.

In case of a successful application, we can process the data provided by the applicants for the purpose of the employment.
Should the application to a job not be successful, all applicant data will be deleted. The applicant can withdraw the application at any time. In this case the applicant’s data will be deleted, too.
