3.2 Applications for a job


If you send us via our website or otherwise an application with application documents, we collect and store the following data:

  • Name, first name
  • Address
  • Telephone number
  • Email address
  • Application documents (cover letter, references, resume, etc.)
  • Photo 

We do this for the purpose of processing your application for the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for the processing is §26 para. 1 BDSG (German Federal Data Protection Act).

It may happen that we are currently unable to offer you a position, but that your application may be considered for subsequent job postings. In this case, we store your data in our applicant database. However, we will only do this if you have given us your express consent beforehand. In this case, the processing is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time. The revocation does not affect the lawfulness of the processing prior to receipt of the revocation.


3.3 Other processing of data


We collect and store personal data when you send us enquiries, request offers, place orders and in the context of the establishment and processing of contractual relationships. In addition to company data (company, address, contact data), we also collect and store the personal data provided to us by individual entrepreneurs, applicants and contact persons in companies of our contractual partners.

4 Purpose of the processing and legal basis


We process personal data in accordance with the provisions of the GDPR and the BDSG.


4.1 For the fulfilment of contractual obligations (Art. 6 para. 1 b) GDPR)


The processing of data is carried out for the provision of our contractual services or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, which are carried out upon request. If the purpose is to initiate or establish an employment relationship, then the processing is carried out in accordance with § 26 BDSG.


4.2 Within the framework of the balancing of interests (Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR)


Beyond the use for the actual performance of the contract, it may be necessary to process your data to protect the legitimate interests of us or third parties, e.g.

  • Ensuring the IT security of our website  
  • Provision of essential functions of our website
  • Assertion of legal claims and defence in legal disputes


4.3 For the fulfilment of a legal obligation (Art. 6 para. 1 c) GDPR)


In our field of activity, there are numerous legal documentation obligations that may require the storage of (also) personal data.


4.4 Based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 a) GDPR)


For certain purposes, we need your consent. This applies in particular if we want to use non-essential cookies (e.g. for marketing purposes). In this respect, processing only takes place if you have expressly given this consent. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. The revocation does not affect the lawfulness of the processing prior to receipt of the revocation.


5 Recipients of the data


  • Data that we collect on our website without your consent will not be transmitted to third parties.
  • If you have given your consent, e.g. to the use of Google Analytics or other providers, then data will be sent to Google or these other providers. When deploying and using social media plug-ins, data is transmitted to the operators concerned. Further information can be found under the above links.
  • Data will be sent to public authorities if we are obliged to do so due to a legal regulation or official measure.


6 Transfer of data to a third country


As a rule, we do not transfer personal data to recipients based outside the EU and the EEA. If, exceptionally, a transfer to a third country should come into consideration, then this will only take place in compliance with Art. 44 et seq. GDPR.


7 Duration of storage


We generally store your data for as long as the storage is required for the fulfilment of contractual and legal obligations. If the data is no longer required for this purpose, it is regularly deleted. 

We regularly store applicant data for the duration of the application process. If the application is successful, we transfer the data to the personnel file. Further processing then takes place within the framework of the employment relationship in accordance with Art. 88 GDPR, § 26 BDSG. 

If we are unable to offer you a position, then the data will remain stored with us for a further 5 months and will then be deleted. 

With your consent, we store your data for up to 12 months from the end of the application process (hiring or rejection) before it is deleted. If you revoke your consent before then, your data will be deleted after receipt of the revocation.

Deletion shall not take place insofar as

  • commercial and tax law retention obligations conflict with this,
  • data must be preserved as proof of claims arising from the contractual relationship, within the regular limitation period (3 years, § 195 BGB). 

If deletion does not take place according to the above sentence, the data will be blocked. We review the necessity at regular intervals.


8 Security of your data


We take all reasonable technical and organisational measures to ensure the protection of your data.


9 Your data protection rights


As a “data subject” you have the right to 

  • Information pursuant to Art. 15 of the GDPR, 
  • to rectification in accordance with Art. 16 GDPR 
  • on deletion according to Art. 17 GDPR 
  • to restriction of processing pursuant to Art. 18 GDPR 
  • to data portability from Art. 20 GDPR. 

With regard to the right to information and the right of deletion, the restrictions according to §§ 34 and 35 BDSG apply.

You also have the right to complain to our data protection officer (see above) or to the competent data protection authority (Art. 77 GDPR in conjunction with § 19 BDSG).


10 Right of objection


If we process your data to protect legitimate interests (see above), you may object to this processing on grounds relating to your particular situation. We will then no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.


11 Obligation to provide data


You are not legally obliged to provide us with data. However, if you want to send us enquiries or commission us, it is necessary that you provide us with the data that is required for the provision of our services. In order to answer your enquiry, we require an email address and a name under which we can address you. In addition to your company data, we usually need the name of a contact person and their contact details in your company in order to prepare offers. Without this data, it is not possible to use our services and we cannot conclude a contract with you.
