According to Art. 4 (1) GDPR, personal data is all data that refers to an identified or identifiable natural person.3. Which data is used?
The following data and data categories are processed within the application process:
In order to be able to adapt our services to your needs in the future and to enable the trouble-free use of our website, we collect statistical information about your surfing behaviour on our website (e.g. which website areas you click on or your "log-in" times). This data may be recorded for support or service optimisation purposes and can be viewed by the prescreen administrator at any time if required.
As part of the implementation of an assessment center, data is transferred to external service providers for certain groups of people4. For what purposes do we process your data and on what legal basis?
Your personal data is used for purposes of selecting personnel to fill open positions, in other words for initiating a contract of employment. The necessity and the scope of data collection are determined according to the position to be filled, among other factors. More extensive data collection may be required if your desired position is associated with particularly confidential duties, entails significant responsibilities in the areas of human resources and/or finance, or requires certain physical and mental capabilities. The legal basis is Section 26 (1) German Data Protection Act (BDSG).b.) Consent – 6 (1) (a) and Art. 9 (2) (a) GDPR, Section 26 (2) BDSG
If you have declared to us your consent for processing specific personal data, this consent then forms the legal basis for processing of this data.
In the following cases we process your personal data on the basis of your consent:
If we base data processing on your consent, you have the right to withdraw this consent at any time with future effect. Please inform us of this revocation by email to datasecurity_de@HARTING.com or hr@HARTING.com. The legality of the processing of your data up to the time of revocation remains hereby unaffected.c.) Data processing based on a legitimate interest – 6 (1) (f) GDPR
In certain cases, we process your data to safeguard a legitimate interest of ours or of third parties.
A legitimate interest applies, for example, if your data is required for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims in connection with the application process (e.g. claims according to the General Equal Treatment Act). In the event of a legal dispute, we have a legitimate interest in processing the data for evidential purposes.
Data processing for statistical purposes is also based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR and enables us to obtain statistical information about the job market, our applicants and the use of our services, thus enabling us to adapt our job advertisements and website to the condition in the market.d.) Feedback questionnaire
To optimize our application process and to improve as an employer, we offer you the opportunity to provide personal feedback. For this purpose, we will send a feedback questionnaire to you at the specified email address. If you participate in the survey, our service provider Prescreen (see item 5 “With whom is your data shared?”) will collect the feedback, position title, location of the position, job category and type of employment for which you have applied. This information will then be shared with kununu GmbH and possibly other verified evaluation platforms and published there without inclusion of your name. Kununu cannot establish a relationship to your person. However, please note that other parties, such as your employer, may be able to identify you based on the information provided in the published feedback.
5. With whom is your data shared?
Your data is primarily processed by our Human Resources department. In some cases, other internal and external parties also participate in processing the data.
Internal parties could be specialized areas or departments or the works council of our company.
Our external service provider is Prescreen International GmbH. Prescreen International GmbH, Mariahilfer Straße 17, 1060 Vienna (hereafter “Prescreen”), operates the e-recruiting system Prescreen under the domain *.jobbase.io (hereafter “jobbase.io”), where companies can post job ads as well as receive and manage applications.
