Links to other websites
Our website contains links to other websites. We have no influence over whether their operators will uphold the data protection provisions. Despite the careful monitoring of content, we bear no liability for content on external links. The operators of the linked websites are solely responsible for the content on these sites.
Applicant management system
Electronic processing of your personal data in the application process is performed by an external software service provider. If you submit an online application via our Career page or a job portal, we will then collect your name and your e-mail address. You can voluntarily upload further data such as your telephone number and additional files, e.g. CV, cover letter, testimonials, photographs, etc.
We protect your data from unauthorised access, loss, manipulation or disruption by using a range of technical and organisational measures. Our security measures are constantly updated to match technological developments. All communication between your end device and our service is always encrypted. This applies to the download of documents, information that we provide on our website and information that is provided to us via contact forms or application forms.
The personal data that you have provided to us is automatically deleted as soon as the processing purposes have been met. In particular the following retention periods apply:
|Categories of stored data||Deletion deadline|
|Technical data and records to backup the website||6 months|
|Web tracking data||At the time of web tracking, your IP address is anonymised by deleting the final octet. Throughout the rest of the analysis, no personal data is processed.|
|Content which you have provided via the contact or application forms.||The retention periods for this content depend on the type of information transmitted and their respective legal retention periods. If an application that we have received does not lead to the conclusion of a work contract, this data will be deleted automatically 6 months after the application process is complete. If you, within the remit of your data subject rights, request the data to be deleted at an earlier date, the data will be deleted immediately.|
|Content you submit to us in the context of an application process.||The storage periods for such content depend on the type of information transmitted and the statutory retention periods applicable in each case.|
If a received application does not lead to the conclusion of an employment contract, the data will be automatically erased 6 months after ending of the application process. Should the process result in your appointment, we will transfer your applicant data to your personnel file. This is subject to the separate duties to provide information for employees (m/f/d).
Data subject rights
You retain the right to be informed at any time of personal data that we have stored about you. Furthermore, in accordance with articles 16 to 20 of the GDPR, you have the right to amend incorrect data, the right to delete your personal data, the right to restrict the processing of your personal data and the right to data portability.
Right to revoke consent
You retain the right to revoke your consent at any time. The revocation has immediate effect for the future. The legality of any consent given to processing until the point of revocation remains unaffected.
Right to appeal
If you believe that the processing of your personal data is in violation of the GDPR, you have the right to appeal to a supervisory authority.
Provision of your personal data
Personal data concerns information about your identity. This includes details such as your name, address, telephone number or email address. It is not necessary to provide personal data in order to use the website’s content. In certain cases, however, we require your name and address, as well as other details, so that we can render the services that you have requested.
This applies, for example, to the use of our contact form, the transfer of any information, answers to individual questions or the use of our forms for online applications. We will inform you where this is necessary. Moreover, we only store and use data which is either voluntarily or automatically made available to us. If you use consultancy services, then generally only the data which is necessary to render the services will be required. If we need more information from you, this is to be provided voluntarily. The personal data provided by you will only be used for the purposes discussed.
