3. PURPOSE AND LEGAL BASIS OF PROCESSING
We process your personal data in accordance with the provisions of the European Data Protection Ordinance (DSGVO) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) for the purpose of your application for employment, insofar as this is necessary for the decision to establish an employment relationship with us. The legal basis for this is Art. 88 DSGVO in conjunction with § 26 BDSG (new) and, if applicable, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO for the initiation or implementation of contractual relationships.
Furthermore, we may process personal data about you insofar as this is necessary to fulfil legal obligations (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO) or to defend against legal claims asserted against us. The legal basis is Article 6(1)(f) DSGVO; the legitimate interest is, for example, a duty of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG). If you give us your express consent to the processing of personal data for specific purposes, the lawfulness of such processing is given on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. Consent given can be revoked at any time (see section 9 of this data protection information). Please note that the revocation will only take effect in the future. Processing that took place before the revocation is not affected by this.
If there is an employment relationship between you and us, we can (new) process the personal data already received from you for the purpose of the employment relationship in accordance with Art. 88 DSGVO in conjunction with § 26 BDSG, insofar as 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 a collective agreement (collective agreement).
4. CATEGORIES OF PERSONAL DATA
We process data in connection with your application. This may include general information about you (such as your name, address and contact details), information about your professional qualifications and school education or information about continuing professional education or other information you provide us in connection with your application.
5. SOURCES OF DATA
We process personal data which we receive from you by post or e-mail within the framework of contacting you or your application or which you transmit to us via external job exchanges.
6. RECIPIENT OF THE DATA
We pass on your personal data within our company exclusively to those areas that require this data to fulfil contractual and legal obligations or to implement our legitimate interest.
Otherwise, data will only be passed on to recipients outside the company if this is permitted or required by law, if the transfer is necessary to fulfil legal obligations or if you have given your consent.
7. TRANSMISSION TO A THIRD COUNTRY
A transfer to a third country is not intended.
8. DURATION OF DATA STORAGE
We store your personal data as long as this is necessary for the decision about your application. Your personal data or application documents will be deleted a maximum of six months after the end of the application procedure (e.g. the announcement of the rejection decision), unless longer storage is legally required or permitted. We only store your personal data if this is required by law or in a specific case to assert, exercise or defend legal claims for the duration of a legal dispute.
In the event that you have agreed to a longer storage of your personal data, we store your personal data in accordance with your declaration of consent.
If, following the application procedure, an employment, training or trainee relationship occurs, the data will continue to be stored as far as necessary and permissible and then transferred to the personnel file.
9. YOUR RIGHTS
Any data subject has the right of access under Article 15 DSGVO, the right to correction under Article 16 DSGVO, the right to cancellation under Article 17 DSGVO, the right to limitation of processing under Article 18 DSGVO, the right to notification under Article 19 DSGVO and the right to data transfer under Article 20 DSGVO.
In addition, there is a right of appeal to a data protection supervisory authority pursuant to Art. 77 DSGVO if you are of the opinion that the processing of your personal data is not lawful. The right of appeal is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.
If the processing of data is based on your consent, you are entitled under Art. 7 DSGVO to revoke your consent to the use of your personal data at any time with effect for the future. Please note that we may be required to retain certain data for a certain period of time in order to comply with legal requirements (Section 8 of this data protection information).
Right of objection
Insofar as the processing of personal data concerning you takes place on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO to protect legitimate interests, you have the right pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO to object to the processing of this data at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. We will then no longer process this personal data unless we can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing, which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
To protect your rights, you can contact us at any time using the above data.
10. THE NEED TO PROVIDE PERSONAL DATA
The provision of personal data within the scope of application processes is neither required by law nor by contract. You are therefore not obliged to provide personal data. However, the provision of personal data is necessary for deciding on an application or concluding an employment contract with us. However, you should only provide personal data within the scope of your application which is necessary for the acceptance and execution of the application. If you do not provide us with any personal data in an application, we cannot decide on the establishment of an employment relationship.
11. AUTOMATED DECISION MAKING
The decision on your application is not based exclusively on automated processing. There is therefore no automated decision in individual cases within the meaning of Art. 22 DSGVO.
