Relevant data: Personal data that you provide to us as part of the application process. This includes in particular your login data (first and last name, e-mail and password) along with the talent data provided as part of the onboarding process, such as your address, date and place of birth, tax data, employment data; (social) insurance data, salary and accounting data plus university enrolment data and, if applicable, the information in your CV, the attachments thereto and in your cover letter (application data).

Purpose of processing: Carrying out the talent recruitment process and assessing professional suitability for the advertised position (Art. 6(1)(b) of the GDPR in conjunction with § 26 of the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz; BDSG)). We process the application data to determine whether you meet the requirement profiles of our clients (companies, service providers).

Categories of recipients: Your talent documents will only be shared internally with the departments that require them in order to evaluate your application and to appoint you. We do not pass any of this data on to third parties.

We transmit the application data to clients in the event you are taken on by them, provided that you have given us your consent beforehand. After receiving the application documents, the relevant client is also a Controller for the processing of your personal data.

Third-country transfers: We do not transfer data to any country outside the EU/EEA.

Duration of data storage: In the event that we are unable to find a suitable position with our clients and have to reject your application, we will store your data for a maximum of 6 months after the rejection is sent to the applicant.

If you have consented to being entered into the talent pool, we will store your data until you revoke your consent, but for no longer than ten years after you enter the pool.

Otherwise, we will store your talent data for the duration of your employment, or for however long we hold a talent profile for you at most.
