In addition, all information required for performing the contract with you will be collected.
The collected data may also include special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 GDPR. This includes, for example, data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinion, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, as well as genetic data, biometric data and data concerning health. The data collected for the purpose of performing the contract primarily include, for example, insurance documents, correspondence, medical certificates and findings, or the like. With your consent, such data may possibly be requested of third parties (e.g. the attending physician) or the data will be transmitted by third parties (e.g. the hospital).
Personal data and also special categories of personal data are collected
- in order to identify you as a customer or supplier;
- in order to advise you appropriately;
- in order to fulfil our contractual obligations to you;
- in order to fulfil our legal obligations;
- in order to conduct correspondence with you;
- in order to bill you or send you payment reminders;
- for purposes of reliable direct advertising;
- in order to assert any claims against you.
We process your personal data for purposes of your query or placement of an order with us as required for the aforementioned purposes to process your order and fulfil the obligations under the underlying contract (legal basis Art. 6, 1b GDPR).
If you have subscribed to a newsletter or participate in a sweepstake, the collection and processing of your data are based on your consent (legal basis Art. 6, 1a GDPR). You can revoke this consent for the future at any time without observing requirements of form.
Collected personal data will be stored until the expiration of the statutory retention period for merchants (6 or 10 years after the end of the calendar year in which the contractual relationship was terminated) and erased after that. By way of exception, this does not apply if we are required to retain the data for a longer period of time by reason of obligations under tax or commercial law (under the German Commercial Code, Criminal Code or Tax Code) or if you have consented to data storage for a longer period of time.
What data do we process, and for what purposes?
We process the data you sent to us in connection with your application in order to examine your aptitude for the position in question (or possibly other available positions in our company) and to conduct the application process.
What is the legal basis?
The legal basis for processing your personal data in this application process is primarily Section 26 of the German Data Protection Law (BDSG) in the version applicable as of 25 May 2018. Accordingly, it is lawful to process the data needed in connection with the decision about establishing employment. If the data may be required for pursuing rights after the end of the application process, there may be data processing on the basis of the conditions set forth in Art. 6 GDPR, particularly to preserve justified interests under Art. 6, 1f GDPR. Our interest then consists of asserting claims or defending against them.
How long are the data stored?
In case of rejection, applicant data are deleted after six months. If you agree to additional storage of your personal data, we will add your data to our applicant pool. The data there are deleted after one year. If you are approved for a position during the application process, the data are transferred from the applicant data system to our personnel information system.

Within the company, only persons requiring access to your data for the proper sequence of our application procedure have such access fundamentally.
