Such data may be needed for longer periods of time for legal reasons. You can – as described above – request information about all personal data we have stored about you at any time.

If we do not conclude an employment contract, the application documents will be deleted six months after notification of the rejection decision - this retention period is justified by any obligation to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
