Scope and purpose of data collection
If you send us an application, we shall process your associated personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes in the context of job interviews, etc.), insofar as this is necessary to decide on the establishment of an employment relationship.

The data is then deleted and the physical application documents are destroyed. In particular, the storage is for verification purposes in the event of a legal dispute. If it can be seen that the data will be required after the 6-month period has expired (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), deletion will only take place if the purpose for further storage no longer applies.
Longer retention can also take place if you have given your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit a GDPR). if statutory retention requirements prevent deletion.
