The legal basis for this is Article 88 DSGVO in conjunction with Section 26 (1) Sentence 1 BDSG (new), insofar as this is information that we request from you as part of the application process (name, contact data, date of birth, information on your professional qualifications and school education or information on further professional training). If you voluntarily provide us with further information, we process this on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). The consent can be revoked at any time. Your personal data will only be passed on within our company to persons who are involved in processing your application.

Furthermore, we may process personal data about you insofar as this is necessary to defend asserted legal claims against us arising from the application process. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO; the legitimate interest is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

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