The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 S.1 lit. b GDPR combined with § 26 BDSG n.F..

Personal data that is processed with the purpose of aggregated analysis or market research is always made unidentifiable. Such personal data cannot be used to identify a certain User. Thus, such data is not considered personal data.

The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 S.1 lit. f GDPR

Storage and transfers If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA)) or the processing takes place in the context of the use of third-party services or the disclosure or transfer of data to other persons, bodies or companies, this is only done in accordance with the legal requirements.

Subject to express consent or contractually or legally required transfer, we only process or have data processed in third countries with a recognised level of data protection, contractual obligation through so-called standard protection clauses of the EU Commission, in the presence of certifications or binding internal data protection regulations (Art. 44 to 49 GDPR, information page of the EU Commission: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection_de ).

Your personal data or application documents will be deleted no later than six months after the end of the application process (e.g. notification of the rejection decision), unless longer storage is legally required or permitted. We only store your personal data beyond this if this is required by law or in the specific case for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims for the duration of a legal dispute.

If applicable, you will receive an invitation to join our talent pool following the application process. This will allow us to continue to consider you in our selection of applicants for suitable vacancies in the future. If we have your consent to do so, we will store your application data in our talent pool in accordance with your consent or any future consent.

4. Security

We have taken technical and organisational security measures to protect your data. Our employees are obliged to observe data secrecy. Furthermore, we use encryption procedures.

You can recognize the use of TLS if a padlock symbol is displayed in the status bar of your browser and the address bar begins with “https://”. Our security measures are continuously adapted in line with technological developments.

It is the responsibility of the User that their login information is kept secret.

Shortening of the IP address: If IP addresses are processed by us or by the service providers and technologies used and the processing of a complete IP address is not necessary, the IP address is shortened (also referred to as "IP masking"). In this process, the last two digits or the last part of the IP address after a full stop are removed or replaced by wildcards. The shortening of the IP address is intended to prevent or make it significantly more difficult to identify a person by their IP address.
