The required information includes general personal information (name, address, telephone or electronic contact) as well as performance-specific evidence of the qualifications required for a position. In addition, health-related information may be required, which in the interest of social protection must be given special consideration in the applicant's person under labour and social law.

The components that an application must contain in order to be considered and the form in which these components must be sent by e-mail can be found in the respective job advertisement.

After receipt of the application sent using the e-mail contact address provided, the applicant data will be stored by us and evaluated exclusively for the purpose of processing the application. In the event of queries arising in the course of processing the application, we will use either the e-mail address provided by the applicant with his/her application or a telephone number provided, at our discretion.

The legal basis for such processing, including the establishment of contact for queries, is in principle Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO i.V.m. § 26 para. 1 BDSG, in the sense of which the completion of the application procedure is regarded as the initiation of an employment contract.

If special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 Para. 1 DSGVO (e.g. health data such as information on severely disabled status) are requested from applicants as part of the application procedure, processing will take place in accordance with Art. 26 Para. 1 BDSG. Art. 9 para. 2 lit. b. DSGVO, so that we can exercise the rights arising from labour law and social security and social protection law and fulfil our obligations in this regard.

If, in the course of the evaluation described above, the applicant is not selected or if an applicant withdraws his application prematurely, his data transmitted by e-mail as well as all electronic correspondence including the original application e-mail will be deleted at the latest after 6 months after a corresponding notification. This period shall be determined on the basis of our legitimate interest in being able to answer any follow-up questions regarding the application and, if necessary, to comply with our obligation to provide evidence under the regulations on the equal treatment of applicants.

In the event of a successful application, the data provided will be processed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO in conjunction with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO. § 26 para. 1 BDSG for the purposes of carrying out the employment relationship.
