C. Data processing in the context of application procedures

§ 12

Collection and storage of personal data as well as type and purpose of its usage

We store all information made available to us by persons who apply for a job in our company. This applies both to applications for specific vacancies and to unsolicited applications. The storage period ends six months after completion of the application procedure. Within this period, the application is checked and the information is available until the end of the storage period, also in order to be able to answer subsequent inquiries (e.g. request for documents, rejections, etc.) in a qualified manner. In the context of application procedures, no data is collected from third parties unless the applicant has given his or her consent. No data will be transferred to third parties, in particular not to another country.

If the application leads to the establishment of an apprenticeship or employment relationship, the data will be stored for ten years, unless other regulations stipulate longer retention periods. Applicants are then obliged to supplement data to establish an employment relationship, e.g. social security data. As a result, data is transferred with social security institutions and the tax office.

The legal bases for data collection are Art. 6 para. 1 s.1 lit. f GDPR and § 26 para. 1 BDSG-neu as well as other legal requirements, from which storage obligations arise in the case of employment relation-ships.


§ 13

Additional information regarding data subject rights

A deletion request leads to a termination of the application procedure and subsequently no more information on the procedure can be provided.

Once an employment relationship has been established, the right to delete data or restrict processing is reduced. Legal and/or contractual regulations on documentation and archiving have priority over requests for deletion. In order to exercise their rights, data subjects can contact the above-mentioned responsible persons in the company, our data protection officer or the supervisory authority.
