2. For what purposes do we process the Personal Data?
We process the Applicant's Personal Data exclusively for the purposes of filling a position within our company and for services and offers related to the Platform or the application process (e.g., communication with the Applicant, exchange of information, security and protection of the Applicant and its Personal Data; see also section 6).
3. For how long do we store the Personal Data?
We process and store the Applicant's Personal Data as long as this is necessary for the fulfillment of our (pre)contractual and legal obligations or otherwise for the purposes pursued with the processing.
As soon as the storage of Personal Data is no longer required for the above-mentioned purposes, we will delete or anonymize it as far as possible. If an Applicant is not considered for employment, its Personal Data will be deleted within 6 (six) months after the formal end of the application process.
