Handling of applicant data
We offer you the opportunity to apply to us (e.g. by email, post or via the online application form).

If you send us an application, we process your related personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes in the context of job interviews, etc.), insofar as this is necessary to decide on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is § 26 BDSG-new according to German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. b GDPR (general contract initiation) and – if you have given your consent – Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR . The consent can be withdrawn at any time. Your personal data will only be passed on to people within our company who are involved in processing your application.
