6. Transfer to Recipients of Personal Data within the EEA

We will only pass on the personal data described here where necessary for the provision of our service or otherwise allowed by the law. Within the scope of the purposes stated here, personal data are transferred to service providers involved in the provision of our services. In addition to their legal obligation to comply with all data protection regulations, these service providers are bound to additional contractual data protection requirements.

7. Transfer to Recipients of Personal Data in States outside the EEA

In individual cases we may also transfer personal data to recipients outside the EEA. This is in particular the case if we have to transfer this data to recipients in third countries for the purposes of contract performance, due to legal obligations or if necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

If we transfer data to third countries, we make sure, the recipient has implemented an appropriate level of data protection within the meaning of Art. 45 GDPR or suitable guarantees within the meaning of Art. 46(2) and (3) GDPR and there are no other interests worthy of protection against the data transfer.

We also delete your data if you revoke your consent to the processing and if there is no other legal basis for processing. In certain cases, e.g. if there is a statutory retention period, your data will initially be blocked and deleted upon expiry of the retention period.

Job Application-related data is retained until a decision is made and then deleted after a maximum of six months or, in the event of a successful application, transferred to your personnel file.
