2. Definition of personal data
The term personal data within the meaning of Art. 4 para. 1 GDPR includes such information which directly or indirectly enables an inference to be drawn about an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
3. Collection, processing and use of personal data in the context of the application procedureIn order to process your application, we need to collect certain personal information, including your name, contact details and certain application documents. Except to the extent required or permitted by law, any personal information we collect will be used solely for the purpose of processing your application. Any further use of your data will only take place if we have your prior explicit consent.
Within the framework of our job portal, we request certain data from you. Mandatory information is marked accordingly, all other information is provided on a voluntary basis.
The purpose of the field "How did you find us?" is to be able to determine through which channels the most applications are received, in order to be able to evaluate where advertisements can be placed in the future or our offer can be advertised more intensively.
4. Legal basis for the processing of your personal data in the application procedureThe data collection, processing and use of the applicant data for the implementation of the application procedure takes place on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR as well as Art. 88 GDPR in conjunction with the provisions on employee data protection that may apply in your country.
If you agree to be included in our talent pool, this will only be done with your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. Otherwise, the legal basis for the processing of your personal data is our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
5. Job-AlertIf you use our joint career site for your application, you have the option of being informed about new job possibilities and interesting offers via e-mail. When you use this function, we process your e-mail address as well as the data that you also voluntarily provide to us in order to send you suitable job advertisements.
The legal basis for this is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR, which you give by using the job alert function. This consent can be withdrawn at any time by using the unsubscribe link sent in every e-mail.
6. Application by means of your social media channel
On our joint careers page, you also have the option of applying using your LinkedIn- or finest jobs-profile. In doing so, your profile information and any documents stored for this purpose will be transferred directly to us by the respective provider with your consent. Please note that this establishes a connection to the servers of the respective providers. Depending on the case, these may also be located in countries outside the EU/EEA, where there may not be a level of security comparable to that in the EU. We have no influence on the processing of your data by the providers of social media platforms.
7. Application via CV upload
You have the option on our website to provide us with your CV via upload. When you use this function, the information contained in the CV is automatically recorded and transferred to us. This is done solely for the purpose of collecting the information required for the application process and only if you actively use the function by uploading a CV. Your data will not be passed on to third parties outside the proALPHA Group.
If you did not give your prior explicit consent to the storage of your personal applicant data in our applicant pool as part of the application process, it will be stored for 6 months after the end of the application phase for reasons of documentation and preservation of evidence and then erased or irrevocably anonymised. In the case of your consent to the storage of your personal applicant data, we will erase your applicant data after the expiry of 2 years, unless you have given us renewed consent to the further storage of the applicant data. Something else only applies if fiscal or other legal archiving periods apply. In this case, the data concerned will not be deleted until the legal deadlines have expired. If you would like to request an erasure of your data despite your original consent to data storage, please send an e-mail to the contact details given above.
The data you provide to us as part of the application process is protected from unauthorised access, loss or unlawful alteration by all parties involved using appropriate technical and organisational measures. We regularly review and update our security precautions to appropriately reflect the state of the art in technology.
10. Disclosure of data to third parties
Your data will not be transferred to third parties outside our group unless we are legally obliged to do so. If external service providers (e.g. personnel consultants) are involved in the application process in individual cases, only the data that is required in the specific individual case will be transferred. Insofar as external service providers come into contact with your personal data, we have ensured through legal, technical and organisational measures, as well as through their monitoring, that they comply with the provisions of the data protection laws. Insofar as these external service providers are considered to be processors, corresponding contracts have been concluded in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR.
