Information pursuant to Art. 13 Basic data protection regulation for applicants

Our company attaches great importance to compliance with data protection regulations. In the following we would like to inform you about the collection of your personal data by us:

Responsible party

The company to which you have applied is responsible for data collection and processing. As part of the application process, we ask you to complete an applicant questionnaire. The questions contained in the application questionnaire are necessary for the decision on the establishment of the employment relationship in accordance with § 26 Federal Data Protection Act. Only the fields marked as voluntary or optional do not have to be filled in.

Data that we need

When applying, we collect master data from you which we need for the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship. This includes, in particular, contact data such as name, address and telephone number or e-mail address. In addition, we collect and store all data in connection with the application, such as curriculum vitae, certificates, qualifications, answers to questions, etc., as well as any bank details (to reimburse travel expenses). The legal basis for this is § 26 of the Federal Data Protection Act.

Data deletion

All data collected by us will be destroyed or deleted as soon as storage is no longer necessary or the legitimate interest in storage has expired. If there is no recruitment, this is usually the case no later than six months after completion of the application procedure.  

In individual cases, individual data may be stored for a longer period of time (e.g. travel expense accounting). The duration of the storage then depends on the legal storage obligations, e.g. from the tax code (6 years) or the commercial code (10 years). 

If there has been no recruitment, but your application is still of interest to us, we will ask you whether we may retain your application for future vacancies.

Confidential treatment of your data

Your data will of course be treated confidentially and will not be passed on to third parties.  

We may use service providers who are strictly bound by instructions and who support us in areas such as IT or the archiving and destruction of documents and with whom separate contracts for order processing have been concluded.

Your data protection rights

As a data subject, you have the right to obtain information about the personal data relating to you and to correct inaccurate data or have such data deleted if one of the reasons stated in Art. 17 DSGVO applies, e.g. if the data is no longer required for the purposes pursued. You also have the right to restrict the processing if one of the conditions set out in Art. 18 DSGVO applies and in the cases set out in Art. 20 DSGVO you have the right to transfer data. 

Every data subject has the right to complain to a supervisory authority if he or she is of the opinion that the processing of the data concerning him or her violates data protection provisions. In particular, the right of appeal may be exercised with a supervisory authority in the Member State of the residence or place of work of the data subject or of the place of suspected infringement.
