If applicants want to be included in the application process, they must provide us with all personal details required for a well-founded and informed assessment and selection in conjunction with their application by e-mail.
The required data should include general personal information (name, address, telephone or electronic contact) as well as performance-specific evidence showing the qualifications required for the advertised position. In addition, health-related information may be required, which in the interest of social protection must be given special attention to regarding the applicant’s person according to labor and social law.
The components an application must contain 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 supplied, 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 supplied by the applicant with his application or a telephone number supplied, at our discretion.
The legal basis for such processing, including the contacting of applicants for queries, is basically Art. 6 (1) point b GDPR in conjunction with Art. 26 (1) Federal Data Protection Act. According to these provisions, the completion of the application procedure is deemed to be the initiation of an employment contract.
If special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 (1) GDPR (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. 9 (2) point b GDPR, so as to enable us to exercise the rights arising from labor law, social security and social protection law and to fulfil our obligations in this regard.
The processing of special categories of data may also be based cumulatively or alternatively on Art. 9 (1) point h GDPR if it is used for the purposes of health care or occupational medicine, for the assessment of the applicant’s ability to work, for medical diagnostics, health or social care or for the management of systems and services in the health or social sector.
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 following 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 governing the equal treatment of applicants.
In the event of a successful application, the data provided will be processed on the basis of Art. 6 (1) point b GDPR in conjunction with Art. 26 (2) Federal Data Protection Act for the purposes of implementing the employment relationship.

6.8 Applications for job advertisements using a form
On our website, we offer those interested in a job the possibility to apply online using an appropriate form. In order to be included in the application process, applicants must provide us with all personal data required for a well-founded and informed assessment and selection.
The required data includes general personal information (name, address, telephone or electronic contact details) as well as performance-specific evidence of the qualifications required for a position. Where appropriate, health-related information may also be required, which, in the interests of social protection, must be given special consideration in the applicant’s own person under labour and social law.
In the course of sending the form, the applicant’s data will be encrypted according to the state of the art, transmitted to us, stored by us and evaluated exclusively for the purpose of processing the application.
The legal basis for these processing operations is generally Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b, in the sense of which passing through the application procedure is considered to be the initiation of an employment contract.
Insofar as special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 para. 1 GDPR (e.g. health data such as information on the status of severely disabled persons) are requested from applicants in the context of the application procedure, processing is carried out in accordance with Art. Art. 9 para. 2 lit. b. GDPR so that we can exercise the rights arising from labour law and social security and social protection law and fulfil our obligations in this respect.
Cumulatively or alternatively, the processing of the special categories of data may also be based on Art. 9 para. 1 lit. h GDPR, if it is carried out for purposes of preventive health care or occupational medicine, for the assessment of the applicant’s ability to work, for medical diagnosis, care or treatment in the health or social field or for the management of systems and services in the health or social field.
If, in the course of the evaluation described above, the applicant is not selected, or if an applicant withdraws his or her application prematurely, the data submitted on the application form will be deleted after 6 months at the latest after notification. This period is calculated on the basis of our legitimate interest in being able to answer any follow-up questions about the application and, if necessary, to comply with our obligation to provide evidence in accordance with the regulations on the equal treatment of applicants.
In the event of a successful application, the data provided will be further processed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR for the purposes of the employment relationship.
