Data protection information for applicants

Please note that this english version is included for your convenience only, and that the german version over here alone is relevant legally, since we are a Düsseldorf-based company.

We are pleased that you are interested in us and are applying or have applied for a job in our company. In the following, we would like to provide you with information on the processing of your personal data in connection with your application.

Who is responsible for data processing?

The person responsible within the meaning of data protection law is wysiwyg* software design gmbh, Stresemannstraße 26, 40210 Düsseldorf. You will find further information on our company, details of authorised representatives and other contact details in the imprint on our website.

Which data of yours are processed by us? And for what purpose?

We process the data you have sent us in connection with your application in order to assess your suitability for the position (or any other open position in our company) and to complete the application process.

What is the legal basis for this?

Legal basis for the processing of your personal data in this application procedure is primarily § 26 BDSG in the version valid from 25.05.2018. It allows the processing of the data required in connection with the decision to establish an employment relationship.

Should the data be necessary for legal prosecution after completion of the application procedure, data processing may be carried out on the basis of the requirements of Art. 6 DSGVO, in particular to safeguard legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our interest then lies in the assertion or defence of claims.

How long is the data stored?

Candidate data will be deleted after 6 months in the event of rejection. In the event that you have agreed to further storage of your personal data, we will transfer your data to our applicant pool. There the data will be deleted after two years. If you have been accepted for a job as part of the application procedure, the data from the applicant data system will be transferred to our personnel information system.

To which recipients will the data be forwarded?

Your applicant data will be reviewed by the personnel department after receipt of your application. Suitable applications are then forwarded internally to the department heads for the respective open position. Then the further procedure is coordinated. As a matter of principle, only those persons within the company who need your data for the proper course of our application procedure have access to it.

Where is the data processed?

The data are processed exclusively in computer centres of the Federal Republic of Germany.

Your rights as an "Affected Party"

In the case of a request for information which is not made in writing, we ask for your understanding that we may then demand proof from you that you are the person for whom you claim to be. Furthermore, you have the right to correction or deletion or to restriction of the processing to the extent to which you are legally entitled to do so. Furthermore, you have the right to object to the processing within the scope of the statutory provisions. The same applies to a right to data transferability.
