Privacy Policy

Information on the Collection of Personal Data in the Context of the Application Procedure Pursuant to Art. 13 GDPR.

In this data protection notice, we inform you about the handling of your personal data that we process as part of the application process and inform you about your rights in this regard.

Who Is Responsible for Data Processing and Who Is the Data Protection Officer?

MetaSystems Hard & Software GmbH

What Personal Data Do We Collect and Where Does It Come From?

We process the following personal data as part of the application process:

  • Master data (such as first name, last name, name affixes, nationality, etc.)
  • Contact details (such as home address, (mobile) phone number, email address)
  • Work permit / residence title, if applicable
  • Qualification data, such as educational history, professional activities, appraisals, certificates, continuing education, and training courses
  • Special knowledge and skills, as far as relevant for the advertised position
  • If applicable, severely disabled status

Your personal data is generally collected directly from you as part of the recruitment process. We receive this data in particular from the application documents and during job interviews.

For What Purposes and on What Legal Basis Is Your Data Processed?

First and foremost, data processing serves the purpose of entering an employment relationship. The legal grounds for the aforementioned is § 26 GDPR. We process voluntary information as part of your application (e.g., application photo) on the basis of Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR.

If your application documents contain special categories of personal data, e.g., information about health, religious beliefs, or ethnic origin, we also justify the processing on Article 9 (2) b) GDPR due to our legal obligations as an employer and the associated protection of your fundamental rights.

We will only use your contact details to contact you and inform you about the progress of the application process. We use other information contained in the application documents solely to determine your suitability for the position to be filled.

How Long Will Your Data Be Stored?

Your personal data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the event of employment, we will include your application documents in your personnel file, insofar as these are necessary for the implementation of the employment relationship. After termination of the employment relationship, those personal data will continue to be stored that we are legally obligated to retain. This regularly results from the legal obligations to provide proof and to retain data. The storage periods are then up to ten years.

In the event of rejection, your application documents will be deleted no later than six months after completion of the application process.

Who Receives Your Data?

Within MetaSystems, only those persons (employees of the human resources department, representatives of the specialist department, regional management), who are involved in the decision about your employment will receive your personal data.
