We collect and process data necessary for the selection of staff if you are applying for a job with us. This is usually data and information that you have decided to provide to us. This is data about your education, work experience, as well as hobbies, interests, if you deem it necessary.

We store the collected data for a period of up to 6 months from the final completion of the selection procedure in which you participate. If for a certain position we would like to keep your data for a longer period (for possible future need in case of a vacant position), we will ask you explicitly for your consent during the selection process and will inform you about the storage period.

If during the selection process you provided us with copies or originals of documents, they will be stored with us for up to 6 months, whereupon they will be destroyed. You have the right to request that we return them to you within this period.
