This data is temporarily stored by us for reasons of technical security, in particular to prevent attempts to attack our web server. It is not possible for us to draw conclusions about individual persons on these data. After at least seven days, the data will be anonymized by shortening the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a reference to the individual user. This processing is carried out on the basis of our legitimate interests in accordance to Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR.

It is pointed out that the website may contain links to websites of other providers to which this data protection declaration does not extend. Linked pages are checked at irregular intervals. Should these pages contain illegal content, no liability is assumed for this.

The processing of personal data (surname, first name, home address, e-mail address, telephone numbers, cover letter, letter of motivation, CV, certificates, references, details in the application interview etc.) is carried for a storage period of 2 years.

Your personal data will only be processed if you have given us your consent in accordance with Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time free of charge. If events take place virtually, we would like to point out that requested log-in data for so-called webcasts may (i.e. depending on the technical functionality of the streaming service used) be visible to the organizer or speaker of the webcast during streaming.
