Information for TDSoftware applicants in accordance with Section 13 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Dear applicant, we’re thrilled about your interest in our company! In accordance with the provisions of Articles 13, 14 and 21 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we would like to inform you about the processing of personal data provided by you during the application process and any personal data we may have collected and your rights associated with this. To ensure that you are fully informed about the processing of your personal data during the application process, please take note of the following information. Compliance with data protection regulations is a high priority for our company. This document seeks to inform you about the collection and processing of personal data.

1. Responsible authority

The person responsible for the collection and processing of applicant data within the company is Julia Schädlich,

2. Data collected

We only process data that is related to your application. This can be general data about your person (name, address, contact details etc.), information about your professional qualifications and school education, information about further professional training and, if applicable, other data that you send us in conjunction with your application.


3. Recipient of data 

Within our company, we only pass on your personal data to those areas and persons who need it in order to fulfil contractual and legal obligations or to implement our legitimate interests. Otherwise, data will only be passed on to recipients outside the company if this is permitted or required by law, if the transfer is necessary to fulfil legal obligations or if we have your consent.

4. Duration of data retention

We store your personal data as long as doing so is necessary for the determination of your application. Your personal data or application documents will be deleted after a maximum of 6 months after the end of the application process (for example, notification of an unsuccessful application), unless a longer period of storage is legally required or permitted. Beyond this, we only store your personal data to the extent required by law or in a specific case for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims for the duration of a legal dispute. In the event that you have consented to a longer period of storage of your personal data, we will store it in accordance with your declaration of consent.

If an employment, training or internship relationship arises after the application process, your data will continue to be stored, if necessary and permissible, and then transferred to the personnel file. If necessary, you will receive an invitation to join our talent pool after the application process. This allows us to continue to consider you in our applicant selection process in the future if suitable vacancies arise. If we have your consent, we will store your application data in our talent pool in accordance with your consent or any future consent.

5. Your data protection rights 

In accordance with the GDPR, every data subject has the right of access (Section 15), the right of rectification (Section 16), the right of deletion (Section 17), the right to restrict processing (Section 18), the right of notification (Section 19) and the right to data transferability (Section 20).

In addition, pursuant to Section 77 of the GDPR you have the right of appeal to a data protection supervisory authority if you believe that your personal data is not being processed lawfully. The right of appeal is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.

If the processing of data is based on your consent, you are entitled to revoke your consent to the use of your personal data at any time in accordance with Section 7 of the GDPR. Please note, however, that revocation is only effective for future processing. Processing that has taken place before revocation is not affected.

With regard to your personal data, you have the right to information, deletion, restriction of processing as well as data transferability and, in the event of incorrectness, to correction (see Section 15 – 20 of the GDPR).

As a data subject, you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority responsible for data protection if you believe that the processing of data concerning you is in breach of data protection regulations.
