b. Compliance with legal regulations

We also process your personal data in order to fulfil other legal obligations.

We process your personal data for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which we are subject pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR, insofar as we are obligated to record and store your data.

c. Legal remedy

We also process your personal data to assert our rights and enforce our legal claims. We also process your personal data in order to be able to defend ourselves against legal claims. Finally, we process your personal data to the extent necessary to defend ourselves against or prosecute criminal offences.

For this purpose, we process your personal data in order to safeguard our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, insofar as we assert legal claims or defend ourselves in legal disputes or we prevent or investigate criminal offences.

d. Sending an application

If you submit an application to us, we process your personal data in connection with your application. Your application documents could contain special categories of personal data.

Processing of personal data

Applicant data generally comprises the following: first name and surname, your academic degree if applicable, date and place of birth, contact details (address, e-mail, phone and/or mobile phone number), application documents (cover letter, CV, transcripts), language skills, other skills. We also process data sent when you contact us by e-mail.

In line with legal requirements, we base the decisions we make during the application process on the personal data you provide. For example, we use your professional qualifications to decide whether to let you continue to the next stage of the selection process and we use an interview to gain a personal impression of you in order to decide whether to offer you the job you applied for.

We process your personal data on the following legal basis:

Data processing for the purpose of reaching a decision on the establishment of an employment relationship, Art. 88 (1) GDPR in conjunction with Section 26 (1) (1) of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).

Processing of special categories of personal data

In accordance with Art. 9 GDPR, special categories of personal data comprise data that could reveal a person’s racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious (e.g. information about religious affiliation/denomination) or philosophical beliefs or trade union membership, and the processing of biometric data for the purpose of uniquely identifying a natural person (e.g. photos), data concerning a person’s health (e.g. Information concerning the degree of severe disability) or data relating to a person’s sex life or sexual orientation. If your CV contains special categories of personal data, we do not collect such data intentionally. We specifically ask that you please refrain from sending us data of this nature.

If you, voluntarily and contrary to our express request, send us application documents containing special categories of personal data in accordance with Art. 9 (1) GDPR (e.g. your photo or details concerning your religious affiliation/denomination), we will store them on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 88 (1) GDPR in conjunction with Section 26 (3) (2) BDSG. The same also holds true if you provide us with other special personal data during the application process. By voluntarily submitting this data, you agree to the storage of this special personal data as part of the application process.

It is possible, for example, that some job advertisements may give preferential treatment to people with disabilities in accordance with prevailing legal provisions. In these cases, provision of this information is always voluntary and subject to your express consent, which you give by voluntarily submitting this data.

We process your special personal data on the following legal basis:
