The collection of other personal data as part of the registration process serves to prevent misuse of the services or the e-mail address used.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. The user’s e-mail address will therefore be stored as long as the newsletter subscription is active.

The other personal data collected during the registration process will generally be deleted after a period of seven days.

5. Possibility of objection and removal

The subscription of the newsletter can be canceled by the affected user anytime. For this purpose there is a corresponding link in every newsletter.

This also enables the revocation of consent for storing personal data collected during the registration process.

XIV. Applications from Potential Employees

1. Description and scope of data processing, disclosure to third parties

If you send us an application, personal data will be processed. The categories of personal data processed include in particular your master data (such as first name, surname, name supplements and nationality), contact data (such as private address, (mobile) telephone number, e-mail address) and the data of the entire application process (covering letter, certificates, questionnaires, interviews, qualifications and previous activities). If you have voluntarily provided special categories of personal data (such as health data, religious affiliation, degree of disability) in the application letter or in the course of the application process, processing will only take place upon your consent or if justified by a statutory provision of permission.
As a rule, personal data will be collected directly from you as part of the recruitment process. In addition, we may have received data from third parties (e.g., employment agencies) to whom you have made your data available for disclosure.
Within our company, only the persons and positions (e.g., specialist department, severely handicapped representatives) that need your personal data for the recruitment decision and for the fulfillment of our pre-contractual and statutory obligations receive it. Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties.

2. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6, para. 1, lit. b) of the DSGVO and in the case of consent Art. 6, para. 1, lit. a) of the DSGVO.

3. Purpose of data processing

The primary purpose of data processing is to carry out and manage the application procedure and to assess the suitability of the post in question. The processing of your applicant data is necessary in order to decide on the establishment of an employment relationship.

4. Duration of storage

We will delete your personal data 6 months after completion of the application procedure if an employment relationship does not materialize. This does not apply if statutory provisions prevent its deletion or if further storage is necessary for the purpose of presenting evidence or you have consented to a longer storage period.

5. Possibility of opposition and removal

If we process your data to safeguard our legitimate interests, you may object to this processing for reasons arising from your particular situation. We will then no longer process your personal data unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing worthy of protection that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms; or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims. You may revoke your consent at any time. In this case, no further processing of personal data for which consent has been granted will take place in the future.

XV. Rights of the Data Subject

If you process your personal data, you are the data subject within the meaning of the DSGVO and are entitled to the following rights vis-à-vis the person responsible:

1. Right to information

You can request confirmation from the person responsible as to whether personal data relating to you will be processed by us.
In the event of such processing, you may request the following information from the data controller:
(1) the purposes for which the personal data will be processed;
(2) the categories of personal data processed;
(3) the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data relating to you has been or will be disclosed;
(4) the planned duration of the retention of the personal data relating to you or if it is not possible to provide specific information in this regard, or the criteria for determining the retention period;
(5) the existence of a right to rectify or delete personal data concerning you, a right to limit the processing by the controller or a right to object to such processing;
(6) the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority;
(7) all available information on the origin of the data, if the personal data are not collected from the data subject;
(8) the existence of automated decision-making including profiling in accordance with Art. 22 (1) and (4) of the DSGVO and – at least in these cases – meaningful information on the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing on the data subject.
You have the right to request information as to whether your personal data will be transferred to a third country or to an international organization. In this context, you may request information about the appropriate guarantees pursuant to Art. 46 of the DSGVO regarding data transfer.

2. Amendment rights

You have the right to have your personal data corrected and/or completed by the data controller if your personal processed data is inaccurate or incomplete. The data controller must carry out the correction immediately.

3. The right to limit the processing

Under the following conditions, you may request that the processing of your personal data be restricted:
(1) if you dispute the accuracy of your personal data for a period of time which allows the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
(2) the processing is unlawful and you refuse to erase the personal data and instead request that the use of the personal data be restricted;
(3) the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you need them for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims, or
(4) if you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21, para. 1 of the DSGVO and it has not yet been established whether the legitimate reasons of the data controller outweigh yours.
If the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, such data – apart from their storage – may only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the EU or a Member State.
If the processing restriction has been limited in accordance with the above conditions, the controller will inform you before the restriction is lifted.

4. Right of cancellation

(a) Duty to delete
You may request the data controller delete your personal data immediately and the data controller is obliged to delete said data immediately if one of the following reasons applies:
Personal data relating to you shall no longer be necessary for the purposes they were collected for or otherwise processed.
(2) You revoke your consent on which the processing pursuant to Art. 6, para. 1, lit. a or Art. 9, para. 2, lit. a of the DSGVO was based, and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
(3) You object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21, para. 1 of the DSGVO and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing or you object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21, para. 2 of the DSGVO.
(4) Your personal data have been processed unlawfully.
(5) The deletion of your personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation under EU law or those of the Member States to which the controller is subject.
(6) The personal data relating to you have been collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Art. 8 (1) of the DSGVO.
b) Information to third parties
If the person responsible has made your personal data public and is obliged to delete them in accordance with Art. 17 (1) of the DSGVO, they shall take appropriate measures – including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs – to inform the persons responsible for data processing who process the personal data that you, as the person concerned, have requested them to delete all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data.
c) Exceptions
The right to deletion does not exist if the processing is necessary, such as
(1) in the exercise of freedom of expression and information;
(2) to fulfill a legal obligation which processing is subject to EU law or those of the Member States to which the controller is subject or to perform a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
(3) for reasons of public interest in the field of public health pursuant to Art. 9, para. 2, lit. h and i as well as Art. 9, para. 3 of the DSGVO;
(4) for public interest archives, scientific or historical research, or for statistical purposes in accordance with Art. 89, para. 1 of the DSGVO, insofar as the law referred to under a) is likely to make it impossible or seriously impair the attainment of the objectives of such processing, or
(5) to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

5. Right to information

If you have exercised your right to correct, cancel or limit the processing of your personal data from the controller, the latter is obliged to notify all recipients your personal data has been disclosed to of such correction, cancellation or limitation, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.
You have the right to be informed of such recipients by the data controller.

6. Right to data transfer

You have the right to receive your personal data that was provided to the responsible person in a structured, common and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to communicate these data to another data controller without being hindered by the controller to whom the personal data was provided, provided that
(1) the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6, para. 1, lit. a of the DSGVO or Art. 9, para. 2, lit. a of the DSGVO or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6, para. 1, lit. b of the DSGVO and
(2) the processing is carried out by automated means.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to request that your personal data be transferred directly from one to another responsible person, insofar as this is technically feasible. This must not affect the freedoms and rights of other persons.
The right to data transfer does not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

7. Right of objection

You have the right, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to object anytime to the processing of your personal data on the basis of Art. 6, para. 1, lit. e or f of the DSGVO; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The person responsible will no longer process your personal data unless they can prove compelling grounds for processing worthy of protection that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If your personal data are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object anytime to the processing of this personal data for said advertising purpose; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is connected with such direct marketing.
If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for such purposes.
You have the possibility to exercise your right of objection through automated procedures using technical specifications in connection with the use of Information Society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.

8. Right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection law

You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law anytime. The revocation of your consent does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of your consent until you revoke it.

9. Right to complain to a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you shall have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, place of work or place of presumed infringement, if you consider that the processing of your personal data is in breach of the DSGVO.
The supervisory authority with which the complaint was lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Art. 78 of the DSGVO.
The supervisory authority can be reached at the following contact details:
