Usually, we receive the aforementioned data (with the exception of the latter point) directly from you. If we receive data from other sources, we will inform you separately. 

3. What do we process the data for (purpose of processing) and on what legal basis?

We process your personal data for the implementation of the application procedure. The purpose here is to initiate an employment relationship. 

After completion of the application procedure, we will pro-cess your data for another six months on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR, in particular to defend against any claims. 

If you have given us your consent to include you in our applicant database, we will process your data to select suitable employment options for you.

4. Who receives my data?

Within our company, the data is only processed by persons whose area of responsibility makes this necessary. 

Forwarding to other companies of the ABLE Group for possible initiation of employment relationships will only take place with your consent. You will be informed of this sepa-rately when consent is given. 

For the purpose of initiating an employment relationship with our company, we may also share your necessary personal data with our customers. Usually, this is done in anonymous or pseudonymised form. If sharing of your data does not to take place in anonymised or pseudonymised form, you will be informed of this separately.

5. Is data transferred to a third country or to an international organisation?

No data will be transferred to third countries or international organisations.

6. How long will my data be stored?

We process and store your personal data as long as it is necessary for the fulfilment of our contractual and legal obligations. 

If the data are no longer required for the fulfilment of con-tractual or legal obligations, they are regularly deleted, un-less their temporary further processing is necessary for legal reasons. 

In the event of an unsuccessful application procedure, we usually delete your data after six months, unless you have given us permission to store it in our applicant database. If you have given us your consent to be included in our appli-cant database, we will store the data until you revoke your consent or until their expiry date, if applicable.

7. What data protection rights do I have?

Every affected person has the right of access under Article 15 GDPR, the right of rectification under Article 16 GDPR, the right to erasure under Article 17 GDPR, the right to restriction of processing under Article 18 GDPR, the right to object under Article 21 GDPR and the right to data portability under Article 20 GDPR. Additionally, there is a right of appeal to a data protection supervisory authority (Article 77 GDPR).

You can revoke your consent to the processing of personal data at any time by contacting the responsible body. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent given to us prior to the application of the EU General Data Protection Regulation, i.e. before 25 May 2018. Please note that the revocation will only take effect in the future. Pro-cessing that took place before the revocation are therefore not affected by a revocation. Please also note that we may process your personal data in whole or in part on the basis of legal regulations despite revocation of consent under certain circumstances.

The provision of your data to us is voluntary for you. How-ever, if you do not provide us with the necessary data, we may not be able to consider you in the application process.

We do not perform profiling.

Information about your right of objection according to Article 21 EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

If you file an objection, we will no longer process your per-sonal data unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing worthy of protection which outweigh your rights, interests and freedoms, or it serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
