Collection and processing of applicant data
In the applicant tool, you can provide information about yourself and your profile. Some information is required in order to send the application. This information includes, for example, first name, surname and e-mail address. Such data are marked as mandatory fields.
In addition, you can voluntarily provide us with further information and documents such as curriculum vitae, certificates, address, etc. Please note that such documents may contain sensitive data (racial and ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, health or sex life). For this reason, we recommend that you remove this information prior to transmission.
We process your personal data, which we receive from you as far as they are necessary for the execution of the application procedure, in order to initiate or execute the employment relationship (legal basis: Art. 6 Para. 1 b) DS-GVO). This includes the following data categories:

The necessity and scope of data collection are assessed, among other things, according to the position to be filled. If your intended position involves the performance of particularly confidential duties, increased personnel and/or financial responsibility, or is linked to certain physical and health conditions, more extensive data collection may be necessary. In order to safeguard data protection, such data processing will only take place after completion of the applicant selection process and immediately prior to your recruitment.
In the case of a postal application, the data can be entered and entered into the tool by the human resources department.
If you are hired, your data and documents can be further used within the framework of an employment relationship.
