Unless this data protection declaration contains other, deviating provisions regarding the storage of data, the data collected by us will be stored by us for as long as it is required for the aforementioned purposes for which it was collected.
Further use of Data and Deletion
Further processing or use of your personal data will generally only take place if permitted by law or if you have consented to the data processing or use.

If your application is successful, the data you have provided us with will be further processed in relation to your future employment with us. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 Para. 1 a, b and f GDPR and Section 26 BDSG.
If you do not provide us with the required personal data, this will not have any negative consequences for you. However, incomplete or inaccurately completed applications will not be considered. Unfortunately, without providing your personal data, the application cannot be submitted and will therefore be deleted.
