4. How do we deal with third parties?

Sometimes we engage the services of third parties, which process personal data on our behalf. This includes external recruitment agencies and research companies. We can only engage third parties if this suits the purpose for which we processed your personal data and this is sufficiently reliable.

If your application process includes an assessment, we will notify you in advance and will only save the report to your job application file once you have approved the accompanying report.

If your application has not yet led to an appointment, we will delete your personal data after the termination of the application procedure. This includes all application details, e.g. your job application letter, CV, email exchange, and the results of background checks and/or assessments, if applicable.

If we do need to retain your personal data for a longer period of time, e.g. for future job vacancies, we will ask for your consent. You can revoke this consent at any time. We will delete your data within six months after the end of the job application process, if you have given your consent we will delete your personal data after one year at the end of the job application process.
