Applicant data is processed to fulfil our (pre-)contractual obligations as part of the application process within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. GDPR Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR if the data processing becomes necessary for us, e.g. in the context of legal proceedings.

The application process requires applicants to provide us with applicant data. The necessary applicant data can be found in the job descriptions. In principle, this includes personal details, postal and contact addresses and the documents relating to the application, such as cover letter, CV and references. Applicants can also voluntarily provide us with additional information.

By submitting their application to us, applicants consent to the processing of their data for the purposes of the application process in accordance with the type and scope set out in this data protection notice. Insofar as special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 para. 1 GDPR are voluntarily communicated as part of the application process, their processing is also carried out in accordance with Art. 9 para. 2 lit. b GDPR (e.g. health data, such as severely disabled status or ethnic origin).

Applications can be sent to us by e-mail. Please note that e-mails are generally not sent in encrypted form and applicants must ensure that they are encrypted themselves.

The data provided by applicants may be processed by us for the purposes of the employment relationship if the application is successful. Otherwise, if the application for a job offer is unsuccessful, the general statutory retention and deletion periods apply.

9.Data protection information on video surveillance

Video surveillance is carried out to exercise domiciliary rights, to prevent criminal offences and to preserve evidence in the event of criminal offences in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, whereby our interests arise from the aforementioned purposes. The data will not be passed on. In the event of suspicion of criminal offences, we may pass on the data to law enforcement authorities. Otherwise, the data will only be passed on if there is a legal basis for the transfer. This may be the case in particular if the police or other security authorities take action in the context of so-called danger prevention and demand access to the video surveillance data.

Data from video surveillance is generally deleted after 72 hours. Data may be stored for a longer period if there are facts that justify the assumption that actions can be seen on recordings from a limited period of time that are to be prosecuted as a criminal offence or used to assert claims under civil law. In the event of absence or illness of the responsible staff, video recordings may be made for up to 10 days in individual cases. Personal data is not processed outside the European Union in the context of video surveillance.
