1. Applying for a job at Pöschl
Pöschl processes the personal data of the applicants in the scope of the application pro-cess. This includes all of the data that the applicant makes available to Pöschl during this process. Pöschl does not intend processing special categories of personal data. Should the applicant make such data available however, then this shall also be subjected to processing by Pöschl.
2. Inclusion in the pool of candidates
If applicants wish to be included in the pool of candidates, Pöschl stores the following personal data so that it can take applicants into account in future suitable application processes. It is normally the case that the applicants have made the following infor-mation to Pöschl with their application:
your curriculum vitae;
• your letter of application;
• your period of notice;
• your desired salary;
• your reason for changing positions;
• the position that you are applying for;
• whether you are mobile;
• when included in the pool of candidates;
• the suitable documents and
• the professional seniority.
3. Purpose and legal basis for the data processing
Pöschl processes the personal data of the applicants in order for it to conduct an appli-cation process. These personal data are exclusively processed for this purpose. The legal basis for this data processing is Section 26 subsection 1 of the German Data Pro-tection Act (BDSG).
Should applicants grant their consent to Pöschl, Pöschl also processes personal data in order to store the applicants in a pool of candidates. The purpose of this is that applicants are then considered by Pöschl in the scope of other application processes, it con-tacting the candidates should there be a suitable vacancy. This data processing is only carried out on the basis of the express consent of the applicant conform with Art. 6 pa-ra. 1 lit. a) GDPR.
4. Storage duration
Pöschl erases the personal data that the applicant has made available six months after Pöschl has rejected the application or after the applicant has withdrawn his or her consent to the inclusion in the pool of candidates.
5. Recipient of applicant data
Pöschl only forwards data provided by applicants to third parties if Pöschl has a legal obligation to do so.
6. Consequence of not making data available
The provision of personal data is necessary for the conducting of the application process or so that a contract of employment can be concluded with applicants. The applicants are not obliged to making personal data available to Pöschl but should the applicants not make the personal data that are required for the conducting of the application process available to Pöschl, it is possible that Pöschl shall be unable to take the applicant concerned into account in the application process.
The granting or not granting of consent to inclusion in the pool of candidates does not have an effect regarding whether a submission of an application to Pöschl is successful or not.
Pöschl deploys technical and organisational security measures in order to protect the data that you make available to Pöschl from incidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or unauthorised third party access.
