Thank you for your application and your interest in our company. Protecting the security of your personal data is very important to us. In the following, we will inform you about the collection, processing, and use of your data in the framework of your e-mail application, as governed by the current legal requirements.

Application information
To process your application, we collect and process personal data. In particular, this includes the personal data involving your contact information, education and training, work experience, and skills. In addition, you have the option of sending us electronic documents such as letters of recommendation or cover letters.

Collection, processing, use, and forwarding of your data
We will only collect and process your personal data for the purpose of filling open positions at our company. In general, we will only forward your data to the internal offices and specialist departments at our company that are responsible for the specific recruitment process. Aside from this, we will not use your application data or forward it to any third parties for any other purpose.

If your application is successful, the data you specify may be used for administrative matters associated with your employment.

If we cannot offer you a position, we will retain the data you send us for up to six months, for the purpose of answering any questions related to your application or its rejection.

If we find your application materials interesting in general, however, and we merely do not have a suitable position for you at the present time, you hereby grant us consent to retain and save your data for this future use. This will enable us to contact you if we have a suitable vacancy in future.

Data security
The security of our system is very important to us. We use modern data storage and security methods to ensure that your data receives optimal protection. All systems in which personal data is saved are protected against unauthorized access and are only accessible to a small group of HR administrators.

Please note, however, that due to its nature, we cannot guarantee full security of e-mail communication. Therefore, to ensure your application materials are optimally protected against abuse by third parties, we recommend creating a password-protected ZIP archive and sending us your personal password separately.

Please contact us before sending us information with a particularly high need for security.

As defined in the EU General Data Protection Regulation and German Federal Data Privacy Act, you have the right to request information about the data we have saved for you free of charge, as well as the right to correction, blocking, and deletion of this data. Your data will be deleted upon request, as long this does not violate any legal regulations. If you have granted us consent to use your personal data, you may withdraw that consent at any time. Please send any requests for information, correction, or deletion of your data, as well as any suggestions you may have, to us at the following address:
