Please note the following information, which you accept by submitting your personal data via our application management system:
1. The applicant‘s personal data and legal basis of processing
We take the protection of your personal data very seriously and process your personal data in accordance with national and European data protection provisions. Your online application is transferred in encrypted form according to the current state of the art. In the following, we would like to inform you about the most important aspects of the processing of your personal data (data collection, use and retention):
tesa SE processes your personal information in connection with the online application via our application management system and also to assess your potential work-related applicability. In doing so, we process the information you provide based on Art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. b GDPR for the purpose of making a sound personnel decision.
In addition, objective, non-discriminatory criteria are added to your application in our system; if permissible on a case-by-case basis, publicly accessible personal data about your person are also added to your application and stored in our application system.
The data provided by you is necessary for concluding the application process. We cannot consider your application without these data.
2. For how long are your personal data retained?
Your data is deleted after the conclusion of the application process and after the expiration of legal retention periods, unless you consented to the retention of your application for further prospective vacancies.
If your application concerns a specific vacancy, your personal application data is retained after the conclusion of the application process only if this is necessary for the purposes of legitimate interests pursued by us in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. f GDPR, but no later than 6 months after filling the position, or based on your consent (see Section 4).
3. How long are written applications and applications that are sent to us by other means (e.g. via email) retained?
In case of written applications, your application data will be stored in our application management system and used by our HR departments. Your documents will be scanned and we will then - possibly even before completion of the application process – return your original documents to you, without this being a rejection or statement of any kind regarding your application.
We save your written applications in our application management system just like the online applications we receive. The same applies to applications that we receive by e-mail.
4. Is it possible to save your application data for future job postings in your application management system?
If we are unable to offer you any of the vacant positions, but if we believe, based on your job profile, that your application might be of interest for future job advertisements of other divisions or affiliates of the tesa Group, we will save your application data in our application management system for a maximum of 5 years, if you have expressly consented to such retention and use of your application in our application management system. In addition to the tesa company you have applied at, other affiliates of the tesa Group also have access to the application management system (see Sections 6 and 7). We recommend that you agree to the retention and use of your application data in our application management system beyond the actual application process, as this means that your application can also be considered for future job postings.
5. How are your personal data used and what is the purpose of the processing?
6. Is your personal data transferred to third parties?
Yes, your personal data may be passed on for processing, or access to these data may be granted to defined third parties/affiliated companies (see Section 7) in the context of your application process. We transfer your personal data to third parties only as far as described in this section and section 5 above. In particular, we do not sell, let or exchange your personal data.
If you consent to the retention of your application in our application management system beyond your application for a specific vacancy, you consent at the same time to the access and use of your application data by other companies within the tesa Group, which might consider your job profile for further vacancies in our Group.
