  • store as few personal data as possible and only those data that are necessary for our purposes
  • obtain explicit consent for processing your personal data, should consent be required

We retain this information as long as is necessary for this contact or for a maximum of three years after we last had contact with you, because we want to make sure we have handled your question or complaint properly.

If you have responded to one of our job openings or submitted an open application, we will process your personal data in order to process your application, and to prepare for the possible conclusion of an employment contract.

We will retain your application information for a maximum of 6 weeks after the position is filled.
