The purpose of processing your personal data is exclusively to carry out the application process with you. Your data will not be used for any other purpose.

3.2. Legal basis of data processing
The legal basis results from § 26 BDSG in conjunction with Art. 88 GDPR and is based on the legal relationship that arises in the application or initiation phase of the employment contract relationship. Insofar as special categories of personal data are already processed in the context of the application (e.g. religious affiliation, health data), this is done on the basis of § 26 para. 3 BDSG or with regard to health data for the assessment of an employee's ability to work according to § 22 para. 1 no. 1 b) BDSG.

4. Recipients or categories of recipients
(Art. 13 para. 1 lit. e, f GDPR)
Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties, unless this is necessary to comply with legal obligations. Only selected employees of con|energy ag and the corresponding departments of the group of companies commissioned with the selection process have access to the data.

5. Duration of storage
(Art. 13 para. 2 lit. a GDPR)
The storage of your data takes place for the duration of the processing of the applications. We also store necessary data in order to be able to defend ourselves against any legal claims, in particular from the General Equality Act (AGG). We delete your data if the purpose of the processing has ceased to apply, there are no longer any legal retention periods and we do not need the data for legal defence. As a rule, these periods are between 6 months and 3 years.

If you have given us your consent to the processing of personal data concerning you for one or more specific purposes, you can revoke this consent at any time.
The right to revoke your consent to data processing does not affect the legality of the data processing carried out until your revocation.
Your right to delete the data will regularly conflict with our legitimate interest in asserting, exercising or defending legal claims that make it necessary to store and retain data.
