On our website, we offer job applicants the opportunity to apply online using a corresponding form. In order to be included in the application process, applicants must provide us with all the personal data required for a well-founded and informed assessment and selection via the form.

The required information includes general personal details (name, address, telephone or electronic contact details) as well as performance-related evidence of the qualifications required for the position. In addition, health-related information may be required, which must be given special consideration under labour and social law in the interests of the applicant’s social protection.

When the form is sent, the applicant data is transmitted to us in encrypted form in accordance with the state of the art, stored by us and analysed exclusively for the purpose of processing the application.

The legal basis for this processing is generally Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR (for processing in Germany in conjunction with § 26 para. 1 BDSG), in the sense of which the application procedure is considered to be the initiation of an employment contract.
