Privacy policy for applicants
In the following section we would like to inform you about the use of your data in accordance with Art. 13 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The company you have applied to is responsible for collecting and processing your data.
Data that we require
Upon application, we process data received from you that we require as part of the application process. This can include contact data, all data in connection with the application (CV, certificates and references, qualifications, answers to questions, etc.) and possibly bank details (in order to reimburse you for travel expenses).
Candidate selection process
Insofar as we consider hiring you, we will send you access to our “cut-e” applicant selection procedure as part of the application process. The purpose of this procedure is to create objective opportunities for comparing the cognitive performance of our applicants. To this end, we assess language skills, numerical and verbal reasoning, numeracy, logical reasoning and multitasking skills. Further information on data processing and data protection in connection with the “cut-e” procedure can be found by logging into the cut-e portal.
Application for events
You have the opportunity to apply for interesting events via our website. The “Talention” tool is used for this purpose. We have concluded a corresponding data protection contract with the tool provider, TFI GmbH. As a rule, you must provide your name, e-mail address and CV when submitting your application. This personal data is processed on the basis of Art. 6, para. 1, subpara. 1, point (b) GDPR and exclusively for the purpose of processing your registration for the respective event.
Deletion of data
Provided that there is no legal retention period, the data is deleted as soon as its storage is no longer required and/or the justified interest in storing it has ceased. If an application does not result in a recruitment, this regularly occurs six months after closing the application process at the latest. 
In individual cases, certain data may be stored for a longer period of time (e.g. travel expense report). The storage period is then based on the legal retention duties, specified for instance in the German Tax Code (Abgabenordnung—6 years) or the Commercial Code (Handelsgesetzbuch—10 years).
Talent pool / candidate relationship management
If your application does not result in a recruitment, but continues to be of interest to us, we will ask you whether we may store the data for future vacancies. In this case, the legal basis is Art. 6, para. 1, subpara. 1, point (a) GDPR.

If you apply for a job offer from an affiliated company, your data will be passed on to this company. Speculative applications may also be viewed by affiliated companies.
