Legal basis

When clicking on a vacancy on the website, job posting platforms or social media channels, potential applicants are forwarded to the Personio application management software. There, all details about the job and the option to submit an application are provided. The legal basis for the processing of your personal data by us as part of the application process is primarily Art. 6(1) lit. b) GDPR. According to this, processing of the data required in relation to the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship is permitted. The forwarding of data to Personio takes place on the basis of Art. 6(1) lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is the effective and professional implementation of applicant management through the use of an HR tool.

Insofar as data of you are processed within the scope of Active Sourcing, Art. 6(1) lit. f) GDPR forms the legal basis for the data processing. Our legitimate interest is the need to recruit personnel. We assume that you, as a potential candidate, are also interested in being notified of suitable vacancies. This applies in particular if public profiles with job-related information are used as a research source (e.g. in career networks). The names of people approached via Active Sourcing are retained for a defined period of time to avoid repeated contact in the future. The data is stored on the basis of Art. 6(1) lit. f) GDPR (legitimate interest). We assume that you are also interested in a corresponding storage.

Should the data be further required for the assertion of legal rights after the application procedure has been concluded, data processing can be carried out on the basis of the prerequisites under Art. 6 GDPR, in particular on the safeguarding of legitimate interests according to Art. 6(1) lit. f) GDPR. Thus, our interest is in the assertion of or defence against claims.

Storage location

The data are basically processed at data centres within the European Union. For individual processing steps, data is in certain circumstances forwarded to Great Britain. The EU Commission has issued an adequacy decision for Great Britain and thus recognized the UK as a third country with an adequate level of data protection within the meaning of Art. 45 GDPR. Thus, a corresponding data transfer is permissible.

Storage period

Data from applicants shall be automatically anonymized after 6 months in the case of rejection. The period begins when the applicant receives the rejection. In the case of anonymization, the data is only available to us as so-called metadata without direct personal reference for statistical evaluations.

If you receive a commitment in the context of the application procedure, the data are transferred from the application management system to our personnel management system. Only the data relevant to the employment relationship will be transmitted. The remaining data will be deleted.

The names of people approached via Active Sourcing will be kept for 5 years to prevent the person concerned from being contacted multiple times in the future.

Data in the Talent Pool will be stored for 1 year subject to revocation of your consent. After one year have expired, it will be reviewed whether there is a need for further storage. Otherwise, the data are deleted.

We ensure that the service providers are carefully selected – especially in regard to data protection and data security – and take all measures required under data protection law for permissible data processing.
