Purpose of processing
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you. The registration for the newsletter is done in a double opt-in procedure. This means that after registration you will receive an e-mail with which you must confirm your registration. This procedure prevents unauthorised persons from registering with your e-mail address. Your registration for the newsletter is logged (storage of the registration and confirmation time and the IP address). With the help of the logging, the registration process can be proven in accordance with legal requirements.
You can revoke your consent to the storage of the e-mail address (and optionally first name and surname for the purpose of personal addressing) and its use for sending the newsletter with associated performance measurement at any time. A cancellation link is provided at the end of each newsletter. So that we can prove consent formerly given in the case of an unsubscribed e-mail address, we may store it for up to 2 years before deleting it.
This is done on the basis of consent of the recipients according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 a) DSGVO, Art. 7 DSGVO together with Art. 7 para. 2 no. 3 German Unfair Competition Act (UWG) or on the basis of legal permission according to Art. 7 para. 3 UWG.
As well as Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 f) DSGVO: Our legitimate interest in measuring success results from recognising the reading habits of our users based on the openings of the newsletters, opening times and the links clicked on, in order to be able to create and send them interestbased and useful content as a result.
Our legitimate interest in logging arises from the fact that we use a secure and user-friendly newsletter system that is useful for sending and protects the personal data of newsletter subscribers. Furthermore, it allows us to prove consent.
You are entitled to request information about the data we have stored about you and to request that the data be corrected if it is incorrect or deleted if it has been stored inappropriately. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority (see "Right to lodge a complaint").
Purpose of processing
Applications online, by e-mail or by post: If you apply to us on the basis of a job advertisement, we will collect your personal data such as first name, surname, address, telephone number, e-mail address, attachments (covering letter, CV, certificates, photo) and store them for the duration of the selection procedure.
Your data will only be used by authorised persons of the personnel department or the management for processing within the scope of the selection procedure. Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties.
If the specific position for which you are applying has already been filled elsewhere, but your profile makes you eligible for future employment or employment in a partner or subsidiary company, we will obtain your express consent before further storing or forwarding your application, unless you have already consented to such storage or forwarding in your application.
There is a requirement that application documents are forwarded immediately to the HR department unopened and the incoming email is deleted. If you apply to us and use our general contact e-mail address for this purpose, the content of your application e-mail can be viewed by unauthorised personnel. To exclude this, please send your application to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 b) DSGVO for the processing of precontractual measures.
Unless you inform us otherwise, the data will be deleted 6 months after completion of the application process or destroyed in the case of postal applications. Due to the long application and selection periods for trainees, we store their data in Germany for up to 18 months.
You have the following rights, provided the respective legal requirements are met: the right to information about your data stored by us; correction, deletion, restriction of the processing of your data or objection to the processing, as well as data portability. Furthermore, you can of course request the deletion or destruction of all your application documents at any time by sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
