The data processing serves the purpose of establishing contact. By sending your message you agree to the processing of the transmitted data. The processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR with your consent. You can revoke your consent at any time by notifying us without affecting the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.

5.) Data protection for applications and in the application process

The Human Resources Manager collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. The processing may also be carried out by electronic means. This is the case when an applicant submits application documents to the Human Resources Manager by e-mail or a form available on the website. If the Human Resources Manager concludes an contract with an applicant, the transmitted data is stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the Human Resources Manager does not conclude an contract with the applicant, the application files will be automatically deleted at the latest 6 months after notification of the rejection decision, unless deletion conflicts with any other legitimate interests of the Human Resources Manager. Other legitimate interests in this sense include, for example, a duty of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act.

6.) Transfer of personal data to third parties

We use your personal data only to the aforementioned extent and otherwise exclusively within our company. Should data be passed on to service providers within the scope of order data processing, we also oblige them to comply with the Federal Data Protection Act. We will only pass on your data to authorities entitled to receive information if we are obliged to do so by law or court order.

7.) Duration of storage

Once the contract has been fully executed, the data will first be stored in compliance with statutory retention periods, in particular under tax and commercial law, and then deleted after the period has expired, unless you have consented to further processing and use.
