To the best of our knowledge, Twitter will always receive information about which of our websites you have currently and previously visited. By integrating the plugins, Twitter also receives the information that your browser has called the corresponding page of our website if you do not have a profile on Twitter or are not logged in.

When you interact with the plugins, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Twitter server and stored there. The information is also published on Twitter and displayed to your contacts there.
You can revoke your consent at any time by deactivating the activated plugin by clicking again. However, the revocation has no influence on the data that has already been transmitted to Twitter.

18) Data protection information for our application procedure
Data protection information for our job advertisements
We process the data of applicants for job advertisements and unsolicited applications only for the purpose and within the scope of the application procedure and in accordance with the legal requirements. We process the data for the fulfilment of our legal and contractual (also pre-contractual) obligations. The relevant framework is defined by Article 6(1) of the DSGVO.
By submitting your application to us, you agree that we process the data for the purposes of the application process. The required data can be found in the respective job description. As a rule, these are CV data, electronic and postal addresses, training certificates and the like, but often also other voluntary information.

If the data voluntarily provided or requested by us are special categories of personal data within the meaning of the DSGVO (e.g. data such as ethnic origin or health data), they will also be processed in accordance with the provisions of Article 9 paragraph 2.
We delete the data that we have received during the application process after 4 months in the event of unsuccessful applications – on the one hand in order to clarify questions regarding the application procedure and on the other hand in order to comply with the statutory retention periods. In the case of successful applications, we process the data for the employment relationship further.

Inclusion in our applicant database
In individual cases, we also offer the option of being included in our applicant database after consent has been given, irrespective of the actual job advertisement, in order to be considered for later advertisements.
In this case, we keep the data for this purpose for 3 years and delete them after the deadline, if no consent for a longer storage is available. These data are used exclusively for the consideration with job advertisements or job fillings and only in the context of that to the establishment of contact.
Inclusion in our applicant database is voluntary, there is no entitlement to be included in our applicant database for future calls for applications and, of course, inclusion or willingness to be included in the applicant database has no influence on the current call for applications procedure.
