7. Transfer of data
Service providers commissioned by us with certain data processing tasks may receive to comply with their contractual and legal obligations. This is predicated on their adherence to our instructions concerning data protection.
In regard to the transfer of data to recipients outside of our company, it is important to note that we are only entitled to pass on personal data when required to do so by law, when you have provided consent and/or when the contract processors guarantee equivalent compliance with the requirements of GDPR/Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). Under these conditions, the recipients of personal data may include, for example, contract processors to which we transfer personal data. Specifically, support/maintenance of EDP/IT applications; archiving; controlling; data destruction; website management; newsletter mailings etc.
Other recipients may include parties for which you have provided consent to the transfer of data.
We process and store your personal data for as long as is necessary to comply with contractual or legal obligations. It is important to note that our contractual relationship is designed as a long-term arrangement. If the data is no longer needed for compliance with contractual or legal obligations, the data will ordinarily be erased, except where its – temporary – processing is necessary for the following purposes:
- Compliance with retention periods under commercial or fiscal law: The Commercial Code (HGB) and the Fiscal Code (AO) should be mentioned as examples in this context. The mandatory periods for storage, i.e. documentation, set out in these codes are two to ten years.
- Preservation of evidence within the framework of statutory limitation periods. Pursuant to Section 195 et seq. German Civil Code (BGB), these limitation periods may be up to 30 years, with the regular limitation period being three years.
Data from candidates who have applied for a position with us is erased three months after the end of the application process if a contract is not concluded with the candidate, unless erasure contradicts our other legitimate interests. Other legitimate interests in this regard include the obligation to furnish evidence in proceedings under the General Act on Equal Treatment (AGG).
