II.    Special part – application activities in our job portal

1. Why is my data being collected and how is it processed?

We only process your personal data in our job portal if and when you have given us prior authorisation to do so. As such, the purpose of the data processing is also determined by your consent.

If you applied for a job that we advertised and provided us with your personal information only in connection with this recruitment process, then we will process your data only for the purpose of processing your application and giving you a quick reply with information on the desired job. To that end, your data will be stored in our applicant pool for a specifically defined period of time, including information that is added during the application process (e.g. from queries and documents submitted afterwards).

We would be happy to keep your applicant profile in our applicant pool, even after completing the application process, but of course this only occurs with your permission. In this case, your personal data will also be used to send you additional appropriate job openings. To do so, we specifically match your applicant profile with incoming job openings. This gives you the opportunity to be considered for jobs you may be interested in during the recruitment process, even without a separate application.

We process your data similarly if you send us a speculative application on our website.
If you have opted to subscribe to our free newsletter or job subscriptions, we will furthermore process your data for the purpose of providing you these things.

Lastly, we process your identification data, namely your e-mail address from the applicant profile you created, to send you the login details for your personal login area and afterwards give you the ability to log in at any time.

2. Who processes my data?

Your application will not be checked by machine, neither during the pre-selection process nor the subsequent selection process. Your application will be viewed and reviewed by HR employees and by employees and, if necessary, managers in the notified department of our company. All persons who are involved in processing applications are particularly obliged to maintain secrecy and process your data with strict confidentiality. If you have sent us an open application or have furthermore given us permission to use your applicant profile for searches for additional jobs as well, only your applicant profile will be automatically compared with incoming job openings. If there are matches, then additional processing will be carried out manually.

Your data is stored on servers in Germany.

3. Is my data shared with third parties?

Personal data is not shared with third parties without your explicit consent. However, we can only process applications for jobs that must be filled through temporary staff assignment or personnel placement if you authorise us to send your personal data to the customers in question as well. Here, “customer” refers to the company from which the job opening originated.

In the case of speculative applications, we cannot yet predict which future job opening will match your applicant profile. To process speculative applications, we therefore require your consent to send the data to an indefinite number of our customers. The same applies if you have applied for a specific job but would like to be considered for other suitable jobs. In both cases, however, we will send your personal data only if you are interested in the job that is found. As such, we will contact you beforehand. We will,as a minimum, disclose to you the industry to which the client company belongs, its size, and the region in which the customer is headquartered, if this information is not already in the job opening.

Please be assured that we will send your personal data if and when the customer requires it only. Moreover, we always strive to provide our customers with anonymised profiles only.

We will not share your data with other third parties unless we are legally obligated to do so. We particularly guarantee that we will not sell your personal data or commercially exploit it in any other way.

4. When will my data be deleted?

Your personal data will remain saved for as long as an application is in the application process. If your application is successful, your applicant profile will be deleted immediately; otherwise, it will be deleted within 180 days. If you have previously or in the meantime applied to one or several additional jobs, the 180-day deletion time period will be determined by the last ongoing application process.

We will keep your applicant profile in our applicant pool for 24 months under the condition that you have consented to long-term storage of your personal data. Once this time period has lapsed, your applicant profile will be deleted, unless otherwise stipulated with you on an individual basis.

Furthermore, we will naturally delete your applicant profile at any time if you request that we do so. Moreover, you can fully or partially remove your personal data from your applicant profile yourself in your personal login area.

We reserve the right to anonymise your personal data instead of deleting it. In this case, your data will be altered in a manner that makes it impossible to identify you personally. Anonymised data is not personal data as set forth in the privacy policy; as such, an anonymisation fully complies with statutory erasure obligations.
