This website incorporates videos from YouTube. The site is operated by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

We use YouTube in advanced privacy mode. According to YouTube, this mode has the effect that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. On the other hand, the transfer of data to YouTube partners is not necessarily excluded by the extended privacy mode. In this way, YouTube connects to the Google DoubleClick network, regardless of whether you are watching a video.

As soon as you start a YouTube video on this website, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

Furthermore, after starting a video, YouTube can store various cookies on your terminal device or use comparable recognition technologies (e.g. device fingerprinting). In this way, YouTube can obtain information about visitors to this website. This information is used, among other things, to gather video statistics, improve user experience and prevent fraud.

If necessary, after the start of a YouTube video, further data processing operations may be triggered over which we have no influence.

YouTube is used in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the scope of Art. 6 para. 1 letter f GDPR.

We collect, process and use personal data only to the extent that they are necessary for the establishment, content or modification of the legal relationship (inventory data). This is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

8. Own services

Handling of applicant data

We offer you the opportunity to apply for a job with us (e.g. by e-mail, post or online application form). In the following, we will inform you about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected during the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing and use of your data is carried out in accordance with the applicable data protection law and all other legal provisions and that your data is treated in strict confidence.

Scope and purpose of data collection

If you send us an application, we will process your associated personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes taken during job interviews, etc.) to the extent that this is necessary to decide on the establishment of an employment relationship. Here, the legal basis under German law is § 26 BDSG (new) (German Federal Data Protection Act) (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR (general contract initiation) and – if you have consented – Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. Consent can be revoked at any time. Your personal data will only be passed on within our company to persons who are involved in the processing of your application.

If the application is successful, the data submitted by you will be stored in our data processing systems on the basis of § 26 BDSG (new) and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship.

Data retention period

If we are unable to make you a job offer, if you reject a job offer or if we withdraw your application, we reserve the right to keep the data you have submitted to us for up to 6 months from the end of the application procedure (rejection or withdrawal of the application) on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). The data will then be deleted and the physical application documents destroyed. In particular, the data retention serves as evidence in the event of a legal dispute. If it is evident that the data will be required after the 6-month period has expired (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), the data will not be deleted until the purpose for further storage no longer applies.

Longer storage may also take place if you have given your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR) or if statutory storage obligations prevent deletion.

Admission to the applicant pool

If we do not make you a job offer, it might be possible to include you in our pool of applicants. If you are accepted, all documents and details from your application will be transferred to the applicant pool in order to contact you in case of suitable vacancies.

Admission to the applicant pool takes place exclusively on the basis of your express consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). Giving consent is voluntary and has no relation to the ongoing application procedure. The person concerned can revoke his or her consent at any time. In this case, the data will be irrevocably deleted from the pool of applicants unless there are legal grounds for retention.

The data will be irrevocably deleted from the applicant pool no later than two years after consent has been given.
