We also process personal data obtained and noted down in the course of a potential interview.

Data processing

Your data are processed exclusively within the framework of the application process for the purpose of selecting the applicant best suited for a particular job. Pursuant to Art. 6 (1)(b) GDPR, processing is necessary prior to entering into a contract. Moreover, data are processed pursuant to Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR for the purposes of our legitimate interests in defending our position in the event of claims being raised under the Equal Treatment Act.
