17) Duration of storage of personal data

The duration of the storage of personal data is determined by the respective legal retention period (e.g. commercial and tax retention periods). After expiry of this period, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, provided that they are no longer necessary for the performance or initiation of the contract and/or there is no longer any legitimate interest on our part in the further storage.

18) Data protection information for our application procedure

Data protection information for our job advertisements

We process the data of applicants for job advertisements and unsolicited applications only for the purpose and in the context of the application procedure and in accordance with the legal requirements. We process the data to fulfil our legal and contractual (including pre-contractual) obligations. The relevant framework for this is defined by Article 6(1) of the GDPR.

By submitting your application to us, you agree that we may process your data for the purposes of the application process. The required data can be found in the respective job description. As a rule, this includes CV data, electronic and postal addresses, training certificates and the like, but often also other voluntary information.

 

If the data voluntarily provided or requested by us are special categories of personal data within the meaning of the GDPR (e.g. data such as ethnic origin or health data), they will additionally be processed in accordance with the provisions of Article 9 paragraph 2.

We delete the data provided to us in the application process after 12 months in the event of unsuccessful applications – on the one hand in order to clarify questions relating to the application procedure and, on the other hand, in order to comply with the legal retention periods. If the application is successful, we process the data for the employment relationship.

 

Inclusion in our applicant database

In individual cases, we also offer the possibility of being included in our applicant database after approval, independently of the actual job advertisement, in order to be considered for subsequent advertisements.

In this case we store the data for this purpose for 3 years and delete them after expiry of the period, if no consent for a longer storage is available. This data is used exclusively for the consideration of job advertisements or vacancies and only in the context of this for the establishment of contact.

Admission to our applicant database is voluntary, there is no entitlement to be included in our applicant database for future advertisements and, of course, admission or readiness to be included in the applicant database has no influence on the respective current advertisement procedure.
