You may revoke your consent to the processing of the data you provide at any time. To do this, please contact the email address indicated in our legal information.
Applying via email
You may either apply for the specific vacancies we advertise or submit a speculative application to firstname.lastname@example.org. You determine the extent of the data you wish to share with us in the context of your email application. However, we cannot consider your application without the following information: name, address, email address, cover letter and/or specification of the desired position, CV, references and qualifications
We process this information exclusively for the purpose of selecting applicants in accordance with § 26 (1) (1) Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) as this is essential to our decision on the justification of an employment relationship. Data is not processed for any other purpose.
Furthermore, you can decide whether you wish to share any additional information with us, such as your hobbies, date of birth, phone number, or a photo of you. Providing this data is voluntary and is not essential to the application. If you include voluntary data in your email application, we will process it based on your consent according to Art. 6 (1) (1) (a) GDPR in conjunction with § 26 (2) BDSG. You may revoke your consent with future effect at any time. To do this, please contact the authority specified in our legal information.
We will treat your data as confidential. If we use service providers, e.g. for IT support, we ensure that they are strictly bound by instruction and conclude separate data processing agreements with them. Furthermore, your data is not passed on. If an employment contract is concluded following the application process, we store the data from your application which will be required for the execution of your employment relationship. The legal basis for this processing is § 26 (1) (1) BDSG. In the event of an unsuccessful application, your documents will be deleted after 4 months. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR. Until the time of deletion, processing is carried out in our legitimate interest of being able to defend against any complaints regarding the application. We only process the personal data you provide to us during the application process.
In the event that we may also consider your application for other or future vacancies, we ask that you indicate this in your application. In this case, we process your data for 2 years based on your consent according to Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR in conjunction with § 26 (2) BDSG. You may revoke your consent with future effect at any time. To do this, please contact the authority specified in our legal information.
