Personal Information

Personal information is any information that renders an individual identifiable. It includes among other things your name, your address, and your email address. You may browse our webpage without providing any personal or otherwise sensitive information. However, in some cases, we may ask you to provide your name, your address and other related details to be able to provide the service requested by you.
This also applies if we send you any information explicitly requested by you, or if we reply to any enquiries made by you. We will, however, notify you accordingly. Moreover, we only store data provided by you voluntarily, or being automatically generated when using our platform.

Whenever you use one of our services, we only collect the data necessary to deliver the service. We may ask you for further details which you may or may not provide. Also, we shall only process your personal information to deliver our services, or to meet our business objectives.

Extent and Purpose of Data Processing

We process any personal information provided by you using our job application tool in full compliance of all applicable law, including German Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), the Works Constitution Act (BetrVG), the Working Time Regulations (ArbZG), etc.

Concerning you as an applicant: The main reason for processing personal information is the formation, administration and termination of employment contracts based on Art. 6 para. 1 b) GDPR and § 26 para. 1 BDSG. In addition, collective agreements (entered in to by company, staff associations and trade unions) based on Art. 6 para. 1 b) GDPR, Art. 88 para. 1 GDPR and § 26 para. 4 BDSG as well as individual agreements based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 a) GDPR), Art. 7 GDPR, § 26 para. 2 BDSG e.g. in the event of recording video footage) may also apply.
We are processing specific categories of personal information of employees in compliance with Art. 9 para. 1 of the GDPR to exert our rights, or fulfil our obligations, with regard to employment law, social security and insurance (e.g. providing personal health data to the national health service, reporting any severe disabilities with regard to additional annual leave allowance and compensatory levy). This happens in compliance with Art. 9 para. 2 b) GDPR and § 26 para. 3 BDSG. In some cases, processing personal health data will be required to assess your fitness to work (based on Art. 9 para. 2 h) GDPR and § 22 para. 1 b) BDSG. Moreover, specific personal information categories may also be processed after obtaining consent on the grounds of Art. 9 para. 2 a) GDPR and § 26 para. 2 BDSG (e.g. in-house occupational health management).

We also process your personal information to comply with our legal obligations as an employer, mainly with regard to social insurance and taxes (Art. 6 para. 1 c) GDPR and § 26 BDSG).

Concerning you as an recruitment agency: We process your business contact data and (in the case of cooperation) other data on the basis of contract processing with you (Art. 6 para. 1 b) GDPR).

As a general rule:
If necessary, your personal data will be processed in compliance with Art. 6 para. 1 f) of the GDPR, to protect our legitimate interests, and those of third parties (e.g. authorities). This first and foremost applies to matters that involve solving a crime (based on § 26 para. 1 p. 2 BDSG), operating a holding company, in-house communication and other administrative tasks.
We also collect the URL of the (employment) webpage you used to submit your application, to optimise the way our job adverts are served. We only pass on your application to parties involved in the candidate selection process, and to parties that require your application to form an employment contract (Human Resources, department that employs you, our legal department, Conrad Electronic SE general management). In compliance with Art. 28 of the GDPR, we process job applications using the rexx HR tool provided by rexx systems GmbH, Süderstrasse 75-79, 20097 Hamburg, Germany (https://www.rexx-systems.com).

Storage Limitation

In the event of your application being unsuccessful, we automatically delete any personal information you provided in the process 6 months after the rejection date. For statistical reasons, we store truncated information (master data) for 36 months. Truncated information comprises salutation, the date we received your application, the way you found us, submission type, year of birth, postcode, country, and job applied for. These anonymised data will be automatically deleted after 36 months unless we are prevented from doing so by law, or have obtained your prior consent to hold on to your data.

If you plan to apply for jobs at our company in the future, you may consent to an extended storage of your personal information, to become part of our applicant pool. This means all your data will be automatically deleted/anonymised (see above) 12 months after your joining the applicant pool.

If you have provided us with your data as a recruitment agency, we will store your data for the duration of the cooperation or, if necessary, until the statutory retention obligations have been fulfilled.
