Below, you can find an overview of the purposes and legal bases of the data processing in the course of your application process.
3.1. Carrying out the application procedure
We process your personal data for the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship (carrying out the application procedure) and, if necessary, for enabling the defence in the context of legal disputes.
The processing of personal data for carrying out the application procedure is performed on the basis of Article 6 (1) b) GDPR in conjunction with Article 88 (1) GDPR § 26 (1) of the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz “BDSG”).
Any data processing for the purpose of defence in the context of legal disputes is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR. Our legitimate interests here lie in being able to prove the lawful course of the application procedure in any proceedings. In this context, we may process special categories of personal data on the basis of Art. 9 (2) f) GDPR.
Insofar as an employment relationship is established between you and us, we do not delete the data from your application process completely, but add it to your personnel file to the extent necessary. We then process this data for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship. We will then inform you of this in more detail in a separate form.
If your application is unsuccessful, we will either continue to store your application data on the basis of any consent you may have given to be included in our applicant pool (see section 3.2) or delete it at the latest six months after the end of your application procedure.
3.2. Application pool
If your application has not led to employment with us and you have allowed us to include your application data in our applicant pool for subsequent job advertisements, we also process your personal data in order to be able to consider and contact you for future job advertisements and to be able to prove your consent in this regard.
Data processing for inclusion in the applicant pool is performed on the basis of your consent Article 6 (1) a) GDPR in conjunction with § 26 (2) BDSG. If we also process special categories of personal data on the basis of your consent, the data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 9 (2) a) DSGVO in conjunction with § 26 (2) and (3) BDSG.
You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. Your withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
The data processing for the proof of your consent is based on Art. 6 (1) c) in conjunction with Art. 5 (1) a), (2), Art. 7 (1) GDPR.
If you have given us your consent, we will store your data for a maximum of 12 months after the end of your application procedure (expiry of your consent). If you withdraw your consent before then, we will delete your data immediately.
We delete your personal data that we process as proof of your consent 3 years after the end of the year in which you withdrawed your consent or it expired (see above).
3.3. Fulfilment of Legal Obligations
We may also process your personal data in order to meet legal obligations to which we are subject. Such obligations may result from trade, tax, money laundering, financial or criminal legislation. The purposes of the processing result from the respective legal obligation; in general, the processing serves the purpose of meeting statutory control and information obligations.

We will delete the data as soon as the legal requirement ceases to apply to the extent no other legal requirement applies.
