SSL OR TLS ENCRYPTION

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the review, you shall have the right to request that we limit processing of your personal data.

If processing of your personal data was/is carried out unlawfully, you may request that data processing be limited instead of deleted.

If we no longer need your personal data, but you do need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you shall have the right to request that we limit processing of your personal data instead of deleting it.

If you have lodged an objection pursuant to Section 21 Para. 1 DSGVO, a balance must be reached between your interests and ours.

If a corresponding consent has been requested (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), processing shall be carried out exclusively on the basis of Section 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO; consent may be revoked at any time.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font shall be used by your computer.

6. OUR OWN SERVICES

HANDLING OF DATA PROVIDED BY JOB APPLICANTS

We offer you the opportunity to apply for a job with us (e.g. by e-mail, by post or via our online application form). In the following text, we will inform you about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected during the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing and use of your data will be in accordance with the applicable data protection laws and all other legal requirements and that your data will be treated in strict confidence.

Scope and purpose of data collection

If you send us an application, we will process your associated personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes taken during job interviews, etc.) to the extent necessary to decide whether to establish an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is Section 26 BDSG-neu under German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Section 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO (general contract initiation) and – if you have given your consent – Section 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. Consent may be revoked at any time. Within our company, your personal data will only be passed on to persons involved in processing your application.

If the application is successful, the data submitted by you will be stored in our data processing systems on the basis of Section 26 BDSG-neu and Section 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO for the purpose of carrying out the employment relationship.

Retention period of the data

If we are unable to offer you a job, if you reject a job offer or if we withdraw your application, we reserve the right to keep the data you submitted to us for up to 6 months from the end of the application procedure (rejection or withdrawal of the application) on the basis of our legitimate interests (Section 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). Your data will then be deleted and the physical application documents destroyed. Storage serves in particular as evidence in the event of a legal dispute. If it is evident that the data will be required after the 6-month period has expired (e.g. due to an imminent or pending legal dispute), the data will only be deleted, if the purpose for further storage no longer applies.

The storage period may be longer, if you have given your consent to that (Section 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO) or if legal storage obligations prevent deletion of your data.
