4. Other important information
4.1 Data collection in the application process (Why?)
Before you decide in favor of us and us in favor of you, we would like to get to know each other. In the first step, we regularly use the information and documents that you send us in writing or in text form for this purpose. The next step is to get to know each other personally, during which we learn even more about each other. The purpose of this data collection is to make a well-founded decision for a long-term cooperation.

4.2 Why are we allowed to do this?
Data protection law permits (in accordance with Section 26 (1) Sentence 1 BDSG n.F. in conjunction with Article 88 (1) DSGVO) the collection of data required for the establishment of the employment relationship. If you voluntarily provide us with things about yourself that go beyond what is necessary, data protection law allows us to do so in the context of consent (pursuant to Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO).

The legal basis for the collection of the above-mentioned mandatory information is Section 26 (1) Sentence 1 BDSG n.F. in conjunction with Article 88 (1) DSGVO.

4.3 Who can receive data from me?
In the course of processing, your data may be transmitted to:

  • Persons within our company who are directly involved in data processing (e.g., HR department)
  •  Service providers who are contractually bound and obliged to maintain confidentiality and who perform partial data processing tasks
  • External companies, if this is necessary. Examples are postal service providers for the delivery of letters

4.4 Will you transfer data from me to countries outside the European Union?
This is not planned by us. An exception to this would only be conceivable if you were to initiate this, e.g. if you were to provide us with the account details of a bank outside the European Union to which we should transfer money. The legal basis for this is Article 6(1)(b) DSGVO, Section 24 BDSG n.F., Article 49(1)(b) DSGVO.

4.5 How long will you store my data?
We will store your data for the time we need it to achieve the purposes outlined in 4.1 above. Paper documents will be returned or digital documents deleted no later than six months after the decision is made. This deadline arises as protection against recourse under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG). However, there may be legal regulations (e.g. the German Fiscal Code § 147) that require us to retain certain documents for six or ten years. After the retention period has expired, we delete data that is no longer required.

4.6 Do I have to provide my data?
In order to achieve the reasons outlined in point 4.1, it is necessary that you provide us with your personal data for pleasure.

This is mandatory for a conclusion of the contract with you. In case of non-provision we cannot conclude a contract with you.

In case of complaints, you can always contact the competent supervisory authority. For our company, the supervisory authority mentioned in point 3.3. is responsible.

You have the right to have this judicially reviewed, according to Article 78 DSGVO, against a supervisory authority as well as, according to Article 79 DSGVO against our company.

4.7 Automated decision making / profiling
Automated decision making / profiling does not take place.
