7.1 Handling job application data
We provide you with the option of submitting an application to us (e.g. by email, post or via the online application form). In the following, we provide you with information about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data which is collected within the framework of the application process. We ensure that the collection, processing and use of your data takes place in compliance with valid data protection law and all additional statutory provisions and your data is handled in strict confidentiality.
Scope and purpose of data collection
If you send us an application, we process the personal data connected to this (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes as part of interviews etc.) insofar as this is necessary to make a decision on the justification for an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is Section 26 Federal Data Protection Act under German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Article 6 (1) lit. b GDPR (general contract initiation) and, insofar as you have provided consent, Article 6 (1) lit. a GDPR. The consent may be withdrawn at any time. Your personal data is only passed on to individuals within our company who are involved in processing your application.
Insofar as your application is successful, the data you have provided is stored in our data processing systems on the basis of Section 26 Federal Data Protection Act (new) and Article 6 (1) lit. b GDPR for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship.
Retention period for the data
Insofar as we are unable to make you a job offer, you refuse a job offer or withdraw your application, we reserve the right to store the data you provided on the basis of our legitimate interests (Article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR) for up to 6 months from the end of the application process (rejection or withdrawal of the application). The data is then deleted and the physical application documents destroyed. The retention serves, in particular, to provide proof in the event of a legal dispute. Insofar as it appears that the data will be necessary after the end of the 6-month period (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), erasure only takes place when the purpose of the further storage expires.
Longer retention may also take place if you have provided the relevant consent (Article 6 (1) lit. a GDPR) or if statutory retention obligations speak against the erasure.
Addition to the applicant pool
If we do not make you a job offer, there may be the option of adding you to our applicant pool. If you are added, all the documents and details from the application are transferred to the applicant pool to contact you in the event of suitable vacancies.
Addition to the applicant pool takes place exclusively on the basis of your express consent (Article 6 (1) lit. a GDPR). The provision of the consent is voluntary and has no connection to the ongoing application process. The data subject may withdraw their consent at any time. In this case, the data is permanently deleted from the applicant pool insofar as no statutory retention reasons exist.
The data from the applicant pool is permanently deleted two years after consent is granted at the latest.
7.2 Data transmission to the IHD
In the event of a credit risk, we transmit your data (name, address, email address, company details and, if applicable, contract and claim data) to the IHD Gesellschaft für Kredit und Forderungsmanagement mbH, based at Augustinusstr. 11 B, 50226 Frechen, for the purpose of a credit check and to review the deliverability of the address provided and for the purpose of collection processing and, where applicable, to additional cooperating credit agencies. The legal basis for this transmission is Article 6 (1) lit. b GDPR and Article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. Transmissions on the basis of Article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR may only take place insofar as this is necessary to maintain our company’s legitimate interests and the interests or fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject, which requires the protection of the personal data, do not outweigh these interests.
For the purpose of making a decision about the justification, implementation or termination of the contractual relationship, we also collect or use automatically created probability values, which address details, for example, may be used to calculate. You can find detailed information about our partner, the IHD, within the meaning of Article 14 GDPR, i.e. the company purpose, the purpose of data storage there, the legal basis, the data recipients at the IHD, the self-disclosure right and the right to erasure and rectification and profiling at www.ihd.de/datenschutz/Artikel14.html.
