Privacy policy for applicants

Compliance with data protection regulations is of great importance to our company. We would like to inform you below about the collection of your personal data by us:

Responsible party

The company to which you have applied is responsible for data collection and processing.

Data we need

During the application we process data from you which we need in the context of the application. This can be contact data, all data related to the application (curriculum vitae, certificates, qualifications, answers to questions, etc.) and, if applicable, bank account data (to reimburse travel expenses). The legal basis for this results from article 88 GDPR and the respective country-specific legal provisions such as § 26 of the Federal Data Protection Act.

Deletion of data

If no legal retention period exists, the data will be deleted as soon as storage is no longer necessary or the legitimate interest in storage has lapsed. If there is no recruitment, this is usually the case no later than six months after completion of the application procedure. In individual cases, individual data may be stored for a longer period (e.g. travel expense reports). The duration of the storage depends then on the legal storage obligations e.g. from the tax code (6 years) or the commercial code (10 years). If you have not been hired but your application is still of interest to us, we will ask you whether we may keep your application available for future appointments.

Confidential treatment of your data

Your data will of course be treated confidentially and will not be passed on to third parties outside the FERNBACH Group or any of its affiliated or associated companies. If necessary, we use strictly instruction-bound service providers who support us, for example, in the areas of EDP or archiving and destruction of documents and with whom separate contracts for order processing have been concluded.

Your privacy rights

As a data subject, you have the right to be informed about personal data concerning you and to have incorrect data corrected or deleted if one of the reasons stated in article 17 of the GDPR applies, e.g. if the data are no longer required for the purposes pursued. Furthermore, there is a right to limitation of processing if one of the conditions specified in article 18 GDPR applies and in the case of article 20 GDPR the right to data transferability. Any data subject has the right of appeal to a supervisory authority if he or she considers that the processing of data concerning him or her is in breach of data protection legislation. The right of appeal may be exercised in particular before a supervisory authority in the Member State of residence or employment of the person concerned or the place of alleged infringement.

You also have the right to contact our data protection officer, who is bound to secrecy regarding your request, at any time. The email address of our data protection officer is:
