We work according to the principle that your personal data will only be kept for as long as is necessary for the aforementioned purpose of processing the application. 

If your application was successful, the data you provided may be further used for the employment relationship and will be transferred to the personnel file. In the event of an unsuccessful application, we are required to retain your applicant data for a longer period of time in order to fulfill our professional and legal requirements, to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights, and for archiving purposes. This retention period is generally six months and is re-triggered based on the last activity date. For example, an activity in your Applicant Customer Portal account is your login to the Platform or any changes or updates to your account. Thus, each time you log in to your applicant portal account again, you express your active interest in our company and agree that we may keep a record of your data in our database for another six months. You will also be informed of this in the welcome text each time you log in. If no activity is detected in your account within these six months, your data will be deleted or anonymized by us.
