Applications

You can apply to our company electronically. We will of course use your details exclusively for processing your application and will not pass them on to third parties. Please note that the application data is transmitted unencrypted.


DATA SHARING

Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties for purposes other than those listed.

We will only pass on your personal data to third parties if:

  • you have given your express consent,
  • the disclosure is necessary to assert, exercise or defend legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in not disclosing your data,
  • in the event that a legal obligation exists for the transfer, and
  • this is legally permissible and necessary for the execution of contractual relationships with you.

When data is transferred outside the European Union, the high European level of data protection does not exist in principle. In the case of a transmission, it may be that there is currently no adequacy resolution of the EU Commission within the meaning of Art. 45 para. 1, 3 GPDR. This means that the EU Commission has not yet positively determined that the country-specific data protection level corresponds to the data protection level of the European Union due to the GDPR, which is why we have created the above-mentioned appropriate guarantees.

Possible risks that may not be completely excluded in connection with data transmission are in particular:

  • Your personal data could possibly be processed beyond the actual purpose.
  • In addition, you may not be able to assert and enforce your rights under data protection law, such as your right to information, correction, deletion or data transferability.
  • There may also be a higher probability that incorrect data processing may occur and that the protection of personal data does not fully comply quantitatively and qualitatively with the requirements of the GDPR.

INSTRUCTION AFFECTED RIGHTS

Any data subject has the right of access under Article 15 GDPR, the right to correction under Article 16 GDPR, the right to cancellation under Article 17 GDPR, the right to limitation of processing under Article 18 GDPR, the right to opposition under Article 21 GDPR and the right to data transfer under Article 20 GDPR. The restrictions according to §§ 34 and 35 BDSG (German Bundesdatenschutzgesetz) apply to the right to information and the right of cancellation.


INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO LODGE A COMPLAINT

You also have the right to complain to the competent data protection supervisory authority about our processing of your personal data.


INSTRUCTIONS FOR REVOCATION IN THE EVENT OF CONSENT

You can revoke your consent to the processing of personal data at any time. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent that were given to us prior to the validity of the basic data protection regulation, as before 25 May 2018. Please note that the revocation will only take effect in the future. Processing that took place before the revocation is not affected by this.


LAW IN THE CASE OF DATA PROCESSING FOR THE OPERATION OF DIRECT ADVERTISING

You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time in accordance with Art. 21 para. 2 DS-GMO. In the event of your objection to processing for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes. Please note that the contradiction is only effective for the future. Processing prior to the opposition is not affected.


REFERENCE TO RIGHT OF OBJECTION IN CONSIDERATION OF INTERESTS

If we base the processing of your personal data on a balance of interests, you may object to the processing. When exercising such objection, we ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as described by us. In the event of your justified objection, we will examine the situation and either stop or adjust data processing or explain our compelling reasons for protection.
