Personal data protection during the application process and for applications
The data controllers collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. Processing can also be done electronically. This is the case if an applicant sends appropriate application documents by electronic means, for example by e-mail, to the data controller. If the controller (human resources department) concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in strict compliance with the statutory provisions. If no employment contract is concluded with the applicant, the application documents shall be automatically deleted two months after the applicant has been informed of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller stand in the way of deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a burden of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act

Disclosure of personal data (to a third party)
A passing on to third parties does not take place, unless we are legally obligated to the passing on or you have given us before your explicit convent into the passing on.
