1 DATA PROTECTION FOR APPLICATIONS AND DURING APPLICATION PROCEDURES
The data controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of the application procedure. The processing may also occur electronically. This is especially the case if an applicant has transferred relevant application documents to the data controller electronically, for example by e-mail or via a web form located on the website. If the data controller enters into an employment contract with an applicant, the data transferred will be stored for the purpose of executing the employment relationship, having regard to legal provisions. If the data controller does not enter into an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be erased two months following notification of the rejection decision, provided no other legitimate interests of the data controller prevent erasure. For the purposes of this provision, other legitimate interests may be, for example, a burden of proof in a procedure pursuant to the German General Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz – AGG).
2 DATA PROTECTION PROVISIONS FOR THE INTEGRATION AND USE OF FACEBOOK
The data controller has integrated components of Facebook on this website. Facebook is a social network.
A social network is a social meeting point operated in the Internet, an online community which generally allows users to communicate with each other and to interact in a virtual space. A social network can operate as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences, or allow the Internet community to share personal or company-related information. Facebook allows the users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos and form networks via friendship requests, among other things.
The operating company of Facebook is Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. For data subjects residing outside the USA or Canada, the data controller responsible for personal data is Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.
For each visit to an individual page of this website operated by the data controller and on which a Facebook component has been integrated (Facebook plug-in), the relevant Facebook component will automatically cause an image of the corresponding Facebook component to be downloaded from Facebook onto the Internet browser on the data subject’s IT system. An overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be downloaded from
As part of this technical procedure, Facebook receives information regarding the specific subpages of our website visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged into Facebook at the same time, the specific subpages of our website visited by the data subject are recognised by Facebook for each visit to our website and for the total duration of each visit to our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and allocated by Facebook to the corresponding Facebook account of the data subject. If the data subject activates one of the Facebook buttons integrated in our website, such as the “Like” button, or the data subject leaves a comment, Facebook allocates this information to the personal Facebook user account of the data subject and stores this personal data.
If the data subject is logged into Facebook at the same time as visiting our website, Facebook then always receives information via the Facebook component that the data subject has visited our website; this occurs independently of whether the data subject has clicked the Facebook component or not. If the data subject does not want such a transfer of information to Facebook, they can prevent the transfer by logging out of their Facebook account before visiting our website.
The data policy published by Facebook is available at This describes the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains the set-up options Facebook offers for the protection of the data subject’s privacy. In addition, various applications are available which can prevent data transfer to Facebook.
