Your personal data is processed for the purposes of personnel selection to fill vacancies, i.e. to initiate an employment contract. The necessity and the scope of the data collection are assessed, among other things, according to the position to be filled. If your desired position involves the performance of particularly confidential tasks, increased personnel and/or financial responsibility, or is linked to certain physical and health requirements, more extensive data collection may be necessary. The legal basis is Section 26 (1) of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).

4.2 Consent - Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a and Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a DSGVO, § 26 para. 2 BDSG

In the event of a legal dispute, we have a legitimate interest in processing the data for evidence purposes.
