5. Data transfer
Basically, there is no data transfer to a third party unless we are legally obliged to do so, or the data transfer is necessary for the execution of the contract, or you have previously agreed explicitly to the transfer of your data.
External providers only receive your data if that is required for the processing of your order. In this case the scope of the transferred data is restricted to the required minimum. As far as our providers get in touch with your personal data we ensure within the context of data processing according to Article 28 GDPR that these comply with the regulations of the data protection laws in the same way.
We put emphasize on processing your data within the EU/ EEA. However, it can happen that we deploy providers who process data outside the EU/EEA. In this case we ensure that prior to the transfer of your personal data an adequate data protection level was established at the recipient. By that we mean that with EU standard contracts or an adequacy decision like the EU Privacy Shield a data protection level is reached that is comparable to standards within the EU.

6. Data protection in applications
The processing controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants to execute an application process. The processing can also be done by electronic means. In particular, this is the case if an applicant transfers corresponding appli-
cation documents by electronic means, e.g. by e-mail or by a corresponding contact form on the web site, to the processing controller. If the processing controller concludes a deal with an applicant the transferred data are saved for the purpose of the
conclusion of the employment contract taking into consideration the legal regulations. If no contract is concluded with the applicant by the processing controller, the application documents will be deleted automatically as far as there are no further
reasonable interests opposed to it on the part of the processing controller, e.g. a burden of proof in a process in accordance with the General Equal Treatment Act.

7. Objection or revocation of the processing of your data

(1) If you have given a consent to the processing of your data, you can revoke it anytime and by any communication channel. Such an objection influences the legitimacy of the processing of your personal data once you have pronounced the revocation.

(2) As far as we base the processing of your data on a balance of interests you can object to the processing. This is the case when the processing in particular is not necessary for the fulfilment of a contract with you, which is described by us at a time in the subsequent description of the functions. On exercising such an objection, we ask for a statement of the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we executed it. In the case of a justified objection we consider the situation and will either stop the processing respectively adjust it or point out our compelling worth of protection reasons due to which we will continue the processing.
 

(3) Of course you can object to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of advertisement and data analysis any time. You can communicate us your advertisement objection under the address indicated under number 2(2).
 

8. Legal or contractual regulations for the provision of personal data/ Necessity for a conclusion of a contract/ Consequences for the non-provision
We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly legally prescribed by law. However, it may be possible that a concerned person has to provide personal data so that a contract can be concluded. A non- provision would have the consequence that the contract could not be concluded. Our staff members will be gladly at your disposal with questions on a case-by-case basis.
