- Purposes and legal basis of data processing
Below you will find an overview of the purposes of and legal grounds for data processing during the application procedure at GEMESYS.
The provision of personal data by you may be required by law or contract or may be necessary for the conclusion of a contract. We will point it out separately if you are obliged to provide personal data and what possible consequences the non-supply would then have (e.g. a loss of claims or our position not to provide the requested service without providing certain information). The use of the Online Service is generally possible without registration. Even if you use the Online Service without registration, personal data may still be processed.
3.1 Performance of a contract and pre-contractual measures
We process your personal data if this is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures taken in response to your request. The data processing is based on Article 6 paragraph 1 letter b) GDPR.
We process personal data insofar as this is necessary for the application procedure and, if applicable, to prepare an employment contract with you. The main purposes of data processing are:
- Recording and checking your application
- Application management and the selection process (forwarding to the responsible persons in-house, organizing and conducting interviews, recruitment management and administration)
- Organizing and holding selection days and tests for certain application procedures, such as the trainee program, apprenticeships, and general application days
- In the case of internal applications for in-house programs: application management and the selection process
Data is processed on the basis of Section 26 (1) (1) BDSG. We process the personal data that is required to conduct the application procedure and, if applicable, to prepare an employment contract.
If no employment contract arises, we will anonymize your data after four months, unless legal grounds apply for not doing so or if you give us the consent to process data in our talent database for contacting you to a later time. If the latter is the case, we anonymize the data once the other legal grounds cease to apply. You can then no longer be identified. Data is processed after anonymization only for the purpose of statistical analysis.
3.2 Fact check
We conduct a review of your personal information to ensure that potential employees perform their duties without conflicting interests and in compliance with high ethical standards while they commit to the company’s principles.
Personal data verification includes your personal data (surname, first name, date of birth, address), your original identity document (or an equivalent document) and your certificates (in particular the last certificate of secondary education) either in the original or in the form of a certified paper copy. In addition, it is checked whether you already have been employed by GEMESYS and if so – limited to this case and in compliance with the data protection regulations – whether written disciplinary measures have been issued to you in the past three calendar years. For this purpose, personal data in the existing personal file for the past three calendar years are queried. Your personal data will also be compared with publicly available EU sanction lists under Regulations (EC) No. 2580/2001 and 881/2002, as well as with the additions made and received by the European Commission. Only in case of need, you will be asked to provide further documents such as your original residence permit, severely disabled person’s card or certificate of good conduct (reliability test).
The fact check is carried out by the respective HR department and, if necessary, additionally by the HR Compliance & labor law department (MAC). Only a limited group of people internally has access to your data. In the case of conspicuous findings within the framework of the fact check, the results are discussed in a committee (department, personnel area, works council). The result of the consultation is documented and stored in the personnel file. For new hires, the completed checklist for the fact check will be deposited in the personnel file and will remain there according to the deletion period for relevant personnel documents and data. Other data storage or processing does not take place. For not hired external candidates, the checklist for the fact check will be deleted after four months while for all other candidates, it will be deleted after three years of storage in their personal file.
The processing of your personal data for the purpose of establishing an employment relationship is required in the sense of Section 26 (1) (1) BDSG, since we have a legitimate interest in people who are integer and acting in accordance with applicable law. The contents of the fact check are also regulated in a collective agreement.
The provision of personal data is required for a contract.
3.3 Compliance with legal obligations
We process your personal data to comply with legal obligations to which we are subject. The data processing is based on Article 6 paragraph 1 letter c) GDPR. These obligations may arise, for example, from commercial, tax, money laundering, financial or criminal law. The purposes of the processing result from the respective legal obligation; as a rule, the processing serves the purpose of complying with state control and information obligations.
Data is processed on the basis of Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR. We process the personal data that is required in order to comply with the respective statutory obligation.
We delete the data once the statutory obligation ceases to apply, unless other legal grounds apply. If the latter is the case, we delete the data once the other legal grounds cease to apply.
3.4 Safeguarding of legitimate interests
We also process your personal data to pursue the legitimate interests of ourselves or third parties, unless your rights, which require the protection of your personal data, outweigh these interests. The data processing is based on Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f) GDPR. The processing to safeguard legitimate interests is carried out for the following purposes or to safeguard the following interests.
- Operational reporting

This concerns in particular technical data such as date and time of access, duration of the visit, type of terminal device, operating system used, functions used, amount of data sent, IP address and referrer URL. We process this data to ensure technical operation and to determine and eliminate faults. In doing so, we pursue the interest of permanently ensuring technical operability. We do not use this data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person.
We process your personal data on the basis of corresponding consent. The data processing is based on Article 6 paragraph 1 letter a) GDPR. If you give your consent, it is always for a specific purpose; the purposes of processing are determined by the content of your declaration of consent. You may revoke any consent you have given at any time, without affecting the legality of the processing that has taken place on the basis of the consent until revocation.
If you have given consent for certain purposes, such as the checking of your application, the purposes are evident in the wording of this granted consent.
Data is processed on the basis of Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR. You may withdraw your consent at any time without stating a reason. This withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent given before it is withdrawn.
We delete the data when you have withdrawn your consent, unless other legal grounds apply. If the latter is the case, we delete the data once the other legal grounds cease to apply
3.6 Change of purpose
If we process your personal data for a purpose other than that for which the data was collected, beyond the scope of a corresponding consent or a mandatory legal basis, we will take into account, in accordance with Article 6 paragraph 4 GDPR, the compatibility of the original and the now pursued purpose, the nature of the personal data, the possible consequences of further processing for you and the guarantees for the protection of the personal data.
We do not carry out automated decision making or profiling in accordance with Article 22 GDPR. Profiling is only carried out to protect our legitimate interests as described above.
