4. Further important information

4.1 Data collection in the application process (Why?)

Before you decide for us and we decide for you, we would like to get to know each other. In the first step, the information and documents you send us in writing or in text form serve this purpose. The next step is to get to know each other personally to learn more about each other. The purpose of this data collection is the well-founded decision for a long-term cooperation.

4.2 Why are we allowed to do this?

The data protection law permits (according to § 26 paragraph 1 sentence 1 BDSG following in connection with Article 88, Paragraph 1, DSGVO) the collection of the data which are necessary for the justification of the employment relationship. If you voluntarily provide us with information about yourself that goes beyond what is necessary, this is permitted by data protection law with a given consent (according to article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO).

4.3 Who can receive my data?

In the course of processing your data may be transmitted to:
  • Persons within our company who are directly involved in data processing (e.g. HR department).
  • Service providers who are contractually bound and obliged to confidentiality and who perform partial tasks of data processing.
  • External companies, if necessary. These are, e.g., postal service providers for the delivery of letters.

4.4 Will you submit my data to countries outside the European Union?

This is not planned by us. An exception to this would only be possible if you were to arrange this, e.g. if you were to provide us with an account number of a bank outside the European Union for the transfer of money. The legal processing of this is Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 24 lit. b DSGVO, article 49 paragraph 1, lit. (b) DSGVO

4.5 How long will you store my data?

We store your data for the time we need it to achieve the purposes described in 4.1. At the latest six months after the decision, the documents will be returned in paper form or the digital documents will be deleted. This period is a protection against claims under the General Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeine Gleichbehandlungsgesetze – AGG). However, there may be legal regulations (e.g. the tax code § 147) which force us to keep certain documents for six or ten years. After the storage period has expired, we delete data that is no longer required.

4.6 Do I have to provide my data?

In order to achieve the reasons described in point 4.1, it is necessary for you to provide us with your personal data. This is absolutely necessary to conclude a contract with you. If you do not provide the data, we will not be able to conclude a contract with you. In case of complaints, you can contact the responsible supervisory authority at any time. The supervisory authority referred to under 3.3 is responsible for our company. You have the right to have this reviewed by a court of law, in accordance with Article 78 DSGVO, against a supervisory authority and, in accordance with Article 79 DSGVO, against our company.

4.7 Automated decision-making / profiling

An automatic decision making / profiling does not take place.

5. Which rights do I have?

5.1 Note on your rights

As a person affected of a data processing, you have the following rights under the Basic Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter also referred to as “rights of the persons affected”):

5.2 Information rights (according to Article 15 DSGVO)

You have the right to request information as to whether or not we process your personal data. If we process personal data of you, you have the right to know,
  • why we process your data (see also point 4.1);
  • the type of data we process from you;
  • what type of recipients receive or should receive data from you (see also point 4.3);
  • how long we will store your data; if it is not possible to specify the storage period, we must communicate when the storage period is determined (e.g. after expiry of statutory storage periods) (see also point 4.5);
  • that you have the right to correct and delete the data concerning you, including the right to limit the processing and/or the right to object (see also the following points 5.2, 5.3 and following);
  • that you have a right of appeal to a supervisory authority;
  • where your data originated, if we did not collect it directly from you;
  • whether your data will be used for an automatic decision and, if so, what logic has been applied for this decision and what impact and scope the automated decision may have for you;
  • that if data about you is transferred to a country outside the European Union, you are entitled to information as to whether, and if so, on the basis of which guarantees, an adequate level of protection is ensured for the data recipient;
  • that you have the right to request a copy of your personal data. Data copies are generally provided in electronic form. The first copy is free of charge, a reasonable fee may be required for further copies. A copy can only be made available, if the rights of others are not affected.

5.3 Right for correction of data (according to Article 16 DSGVO)

You have the right to ask us to correct your data if it is incorrect and/or incomplete.  This right also includes the right to be completed by supplementary declarations or communications. Corrections and/or addition must be made without undue delay.

5.4 Right to cancellation of personal data (according to article 17 DSGVO)

You have the right to demand the deletion of your personal data from us if
  • the personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected and processed;
  • the data processing is carried out on the basis of your given approval and you have withdrawn your agreement; however, this does not apply if there is another legal permission for the data processing;
  • you have objected to a data processing whose legal authorisation is in the so-called “legitimate interest” (under Article 6 paragraph 1, e or f); however, deletion is not necessary if there are overriding legitimate reasons for further processing;
  • you have objected to data processing for the purpose of direct marketing;
  • your personal data has been processed unlawfully;it concerns data of a child which were collected for services of the information society (=electronic service) on the basis of the approval (according to Article 8 paragraph 1 DSGVO).
A right to the deletion of personal data does not exist, if
  • the right to freedom of expression and information precludes the request for deletion;
  • the processing of personal data
    • to fulfil a legal obligation (e.g. legal storage obligations),
    • to carry out public tasks and interests in accordance with applicable law (including “public health") or
    • is required for archiving and/or research purposes;
  • the personal data is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

5.5 Right to limit data processing (according to Article 18 DSGVO)

You have the right to have the processing of your personal data restricted in the following cases:
  • If you have raised objections as to the correctness of your personal data, you may request that we do not use your data for any other purpose during the period for checking the correctness, thereby limiting its processing.
  • In the event of unlawful data processing, you may request the restriction of data use instead of data deletion;
  • If you need your personal data to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, but we no longer need your personal data, you can demand that we restrict processing to the purposes of legal prosecution.
  • If you have objected to data processing (according to Article 21 paragraph 1 DSGVO) (see also item 5.7) and it is not yet clear whether our interests in a processing outweigh your interests, you can demand that your data are not used for other purposes for the duration of the checking and that their processing is therefore restricted.
Personal data whose processing has been restricted at your request may only be processed,
  • with your approval,
  • for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims,
  • to protect the rights of other natural or legal persons, or
  • for reasons of important public interest.
If a processing restriction is removed, you will be notified in advance.

5.6 Right to data portability (according to Article 20 DSGVO)

You have the right to request from us the data that you have provided to us in a common electronic format (e.g. as PDF or Excel document). You may also request us to transfer this information directly to another (specific) company, if technically possible for us. The prerequisite for you having this right is that the processing is carried out on the basis of an approval or for the execution of a contract and with the help of automated procedures. The exercise of the right to data transfer does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons. If you use the right to data transfer, you still have the right to data deletion in accordance with Article 17 DSGVO.

5.7 Right to object to certain data processing (according to Article 21 DSGVO)

If your data is processed for the purpose of performing public interest or legitimate interests, you may object to such processing. You must explain the reasons resulting from your particular situation for your objection. These can be, for example, special family circumstances or secrecy interests worthy of protection.

In the event of an objection, we shall refrain from any further processing of your data for the mentioned purposes, unless,
  • there are compelling legitimate reasons for processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or
  • the processing is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
You may object to the use of your data for the purpose of direct advertising at any time; this also applies to profiling as far as it is connected with direct advertising. In the event of an objection, we may no longer use your data for the purpose of direct advertising. Under no circumstances we shall arrange for or carry out direct advertising and/or profiling.

5.8 Prohibition of automated decisions/profiling (according to Article 22 DSGVO)

Decisions made by us which have a legal consequence for you or which significantly affect you must not be based exclusively on automated processing of personal data. This also includes profiling. This prohibition does not apply as far as the automated decision
  • for the conclusion or performance of a contract with you is required,
  • is permissible on the basis of legislation, if this legislation include appropriate measures to protect your rights and freedoms, as well as your legitimate interests, or
  • with your explicit approval.
Decisions which are based exclusively on automated processing of special categories of personal data (=sensitive data) are only permissible if they are based on
  • your explicit approval, or
  • if there is a substantial public interest in the processing operation
and appropriate measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.

5.9 Exercise of the rights concerned

In order to exercise your rights, please contact the body mentioned under 3.2. Requests that are submitted electronically are usually answered electronically. The information, communications and measures to be made available under the DSGVO, including “the exercise of data subjects’ rights, are generally provided free of charge. Only in the case of manifestly unfounded or excessive claims, we are entitled to charge a reasonable fee for processing or to refrain from taking action (according to article 12 paragraph 5 DSGVO).

If there are justified doubts as to your identity, we may request additional information from you for the purpose of identification. If identification is not possible for us, we are entitled to refuse the processing of your request. If identification is not possible we will inform you separately as far as possible.  (see Article 12, paragraph 6 and Article 11 DSGVO).

Requests for information are usually processed immediately, within one month after receipt of the request. The deadline may be extended by a further two months if this is necessary in view of the complexity and/or the number of requests; in the event of an extension, we will inform you of the reasons for the delay within one month after receipt of your request. If we do not act on a request, we will inform you of the reasons for the delay immediately within one month after receipt of the request and will inform you of the possibility of filing a complaint with a supervisory authority or of a judicial remedy. (see Article 12, paragraph 3 and 4 DSGVO).

Please note that you can only exercise your rights concerned within the limits of restrictions and limitations provided by the Union or the Member States.  (Article 23 DSGVO)
