We process personally identifiable information about you for the purpose of your application for an employment relationship, to the extent that this is necessary for the decision to establish such an employment relationship with us. The legal basis here is Art. 6 para. 1 b) GDPR. Furthermore, we may process your personal data, to the extent that this is necessary as a defence against legal claims asserted against us which arise from the application process. The legal basis here is Art. 6 para. 1, letter f GDPR; the legitimate interest is, for example, a burden of proof in proceedings under the Allgemeinen Gleichbehandlungsgesetz [German general equal treatment act] (AGG). Insofar as an employment relationship arises between us, pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR, we may further process the personal data we have already received from you for employment relationship purposes, if this is for the purpose of executing or terminating the employment relationship or for the exerciing e or fulfilment of rights and duties of employee representation arising from a law or a collective agreement, or an operating or service agreement (union agreement).

4. Which categories of personal data do we process?
We process data related to your application. This may include general personal information (such as your name, address and contact details), details of your qualifications and education, vocational training, or other information that you provide to us in connection with your application. Otherwise, we may process your publicly available employment-related information, such as a profile on professional social media networks.

5. From what sources is personal data obtained if we do not collect it from you?
Insofar as we do not collect the data directly from you and you have an active profile on a job exchange site or if you disclose an inactive or partially active profile to us during the application process, we may also collect personal data this way.

6. Which categories of data recipients are there?
We may transfer your personal data to companies affiliated with us, insofar as this is permissible within the context of the purposes and legal bases stated under clause 3. Otherwise, personal data is processed on our behalf on the basis of contracts pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR, in particular by host providers or providers of applicant management systems.

7. Is a transfer to a third country intended?
A transfer to a third country is not intended.

8. For how long will your data be stored?
We will store your personal information for as long as is necessary to make a decision on your application. In so far as an employment relationship between us does not materialise, we may also continue to store data as required to form a defence against possible legal claims. The application documents will be deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, unless a longer storage period is required due to litigation.

9. Which rights do you have?
Depending on the situation in individual cases, as an applicant with us you have the following data protection rights, where you can contact us or our data protection officer at any time in accordance with the details stated in clause 1 and 2 for the exercising of such:
a. Information: You have the right to receive information on your personal data processed by us and to request access to your personal data and/or copies of such data. This includes information on the purpose of the use, the category of data used, its recipients and beneficiaries and, if possible, the expected duration of the data storage or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining such a duration.
b. Correction, erasure or restriction of processing: You have the right to request from us, without undue delay, the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning you. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, you have the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.
c. Right to object To the extent that the processing of your personal data takes place on the basis of Article 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of such data at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. We will then no longer process the personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or where the processing serves the establishment, exercisomg or defence of legal claims.
d. Right of withdrawal: If the processing is based on consent, you have the right to withdraw such consent at any time with future effect, without affecting the legitimacy of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. For this you can contact us or our data protection officer at any time in accordance with the above mentioned contact data.
e. Right to erasure: You have the right to request from us the erasure of personal data concerning you without undue delay and we have the obligation to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies: The personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed. - You assert your right to object to the processing in accordance with clause 8.c above and no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing exist. - The personal data was processed unlawfully. - The erasure of personal data is required for compliance with a legal obligation in Union or Member State law to which we are subject. This does not apply where processing is required; - to fulfil a legal obligation which requires processing under the law of the Union or of the Member States to which we are subject; - to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
f. Right to restriction of processing You have the right to request the restriction of processing from us if one of the following conditions are met: - You dispute the accuracy of your personal information. The restriction is valid here for a period of time that allows us to verify the accuracy of your personal information. - The processing is unlawful and you refuse the erasure of personal data and instead demand the restriction of the use of personal data. - We no longer need the personal data for the purposes of processing, but you need it for the assertion, exercising or defence of legal claims. - You have objected to processing in accordance with clause 8.c above, as long as it has not yet been determined whether our legitimate reasons outweigh yours. Where processing has been restricted under this letter, such personal data shall, with the exception of storage, only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercising or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or of a Member State. If you have effected a restriction of processing, we will inform you before the restriction is lifted.
g. Right to lodge a complaint: Without prejudice to any other administrative or legal remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in your Member State of habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement, if you believe the processing of your personal data infringes the GDPR. Of course, you can also contact the Hessian officer for data protection and freedom of information, PO Box 3163, 65021 Wiesbaden, Germany, who is responsible for VAN HEES GmbH.

10. The necessity of providing personal data:
The provision of personal data is not required by law or contract, nor are you required to provide your personal data. However, the provision of personal data is required to enter into a contract of employment with us. In other words, if you do not provide us with personal data in your application, we will not be able to enter into an employment relationship with you.

11. No automated decision-making:
No automated individual decision-making in the sense of Art. 22 GDPR will take place. This means a decision about your application will not be solely based on automated processing.
