We process the personal data transmitted using the form. This is master data (mandatory fields): First name, surname, street and house number, postal code, town, e-mail address; optional information: telephone, mobile phone number). In addition, the documents that you upload online in the application portal may contain other personal data, such as date of birth, data on school education, training and studies as well as previous career history, data on driving licences, data on possible impairments, curriculum vitae, certificates, photo. You are solely responsible for the content of the uploaded documents.
The processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO and Section 26 (1) S. 1 BDSG. The purpose of data processing is to check your suitability for the position (or in the case of an unsolicited application for a position in our group of companies) and to carry out the application procedure as well as hiring decisions.
When we enter into an employment contract with you, we transfer your information to our personnel management system for employment purposes, to the extent necessary for its performance or termination.

If an applicant is inactive in our applicant pool, we delete the applicant's data at the latest after 180 days after the pool promise, unless the applicant extends his membership in the applicant pool even after we have informed him of the imminent deletion.
12. Video surveillance
A video surveillance system is operated to monitor the company premises. The purpose of the video surveillance of the employee/ company parking spaces, the entrances and exits to the company premises, the forecourt of the dispatch department, the entrances for persons as well as the factory roads is the protection of the house right, the protection of the company premises and its facilities, the people and the objects which are on them. This right is fundamentally covered by the householder's right. In addition, the purpose of video surveillance is to increase the sense of security of the people staying at these places, to deter people who are willing to commit vandalism, to prevent crime and to preserve evidence for the effective prosecution and enforcement of criminal and civil claims of both the responsible person and the employees.
Video surveillance is carried out on the basis of our legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO and Sections 4, 26 (4) BDSG: exercise the right to determine who shall be allowed or denied access, protection of property, people, objects and facilites located on the company premises; protection against criminal offences; assertion of civil law claims for damages by the controller and his employees; on the basis of a collective agreement in the case of processing personal data of employees.
However, it must be assumed that the interest of the person responsible or of a third party in video surveillance does not unduly interfere with the rights and freedoms of natural persons, in particular since the latter are made aware of video surveillance. Video surveillance is necessary and suitable to fulfil the intended purpose and is also the mildest means in this respect. Video surveillance is quite suitable to deter possible disturbers/ perpetrators. The video surveillance is well recognizable for everyone; in addition signs refer to the video surveillance. The video surveillance supplies usable pictures, which support the conversion of the house right or a criminal prosecution. An equally suitable, milder means is not recognizable. If this function were to be performed by security personnel, this would require staff around the clock. Also the use of camera dummies might cause only a comparable deterrence in the short term, since it cannot be excluded that this becomes known. The observation boundary ends at the boundary of the property.
The data will be deleted 5 working days after production if not used.
13. Visitors of the company premises
When we grant you access to our premises, we need personal information for communication, the provision of information and services, and for the purposes associated with the relationship.

The following data categories can be collected and processed:
- Identification data such as surname, first name, company, license plate number, special authorizations (for truck drivers) to identify you as an authorized visitor,
- Addresses and contact data such as postal address, e-mail addresses, telephone number and, if applicable, organizational data such as company, department, function, in order to be able to contact you if, for example, questions need to be clarified, information needs to be exchanged, appointments need to be made or access to the Internet is set up for you.
- Time recording, e.g. on company premises or for the provision of services in order to be able to bill services.
- IP address and voucher code if a temporary access to the Internet via LAN (local aera network) or WLAN (wireless local aera network) has been set up for you as a visitor via a captive portal.
- Video/image data, e.g. for monitoring the publicly accessible areas of the company premises and certain areas on the company premises, in order to monitor our domestic rights and to secure our property and that of third parties.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data is the protection of our legitimate interest on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR: Enforcement of our right to determine who shall be allowed or denied access rights; granting access to the company premises only to authorized visitors; protection of property, people, objects and facilities located on the company premises; protection against criminal offences; assertion of civil law claims for damages by the person responsible and by third parties.
