§ 3 What Are Personal Data?
Personal data are individual details about personal or factual situations of a specific or identifiable natural person (the data subject), including the person’s name, address, telephone number, date of birth and e-mail address. Information with which we cannot (or can only with a disproportionate effort) establish a reference to your person, e.g. by making the information anonymous, is not personal data.
§ 4 General Information about Data Processing
When you apply for a position at MTU, we collect and use your personal data only to the extent necessary to decide whether to make you an offer of employment.
Your personal data shall not be used for any other purpose, especially for advertising purposes. We shall not transmit your personal data to third parties without your consent, except in the cases out-lined below, unless we are obliged to disclose them by law.
We may transmit your personal data for the purposes described in § 5 below – insofar as necessary for your application – to enterprises affiliated with MTU Aero Engines AG in the sense of §§ 15ff of the German Stock Corporation Act.
We furthermore transmit personal data – to the extent permissible by law – to courts of law, legal advisors or government authorities (in particular, fiscal authorities, aviation control authorities etc.) if necessary in order to comply with applicable law or to assert, enforce or defend against legal claims.
Furthermore, in connection with your application, it may be necessary for us to transmit your personal data to other recipients, such as tax consultants, insurers or business partners..
Where we transmit personal data to service providers (e.g. IT service providers) acting on behalf of our company, we will contractually oblige them in advance to comply with the applicable requirements of data protection law and they shall be subject to our instructions.
b) Legal basis
When processing personal data that are required for the decision to create an employment agreement or that are needed after the creation of an employment agreement for administration or termination purposes, the legal basis is §26 Section 1 “Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). The legal basis for our processing of personal data to meet legal obligations to which we are subject is Art. 6 Section 1 lit.c of the GDPR. Moreover, §26 Section 2 “Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG)“ may serve as a legal basis, provided that you have expressly consented to the processing of your personal data in individual cases.
c) Data Deletion and Storage Period
Your personal data shall be erased or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. We may continue to store your data after this, however, if required to do so by European or national laws or other statutory provisions to which we are subject. We also delete or block your personal data upon expiration of a valid legal storage limit unless we must continue to store the data for purposes of concluding or fulfilling a contract.
d) Applicants under the Age of 16
Since applicants must grant consent to the processing of their personal data and no person under the age of sixteen may legally grant such consent, applications from persons under the age of sixteen require the consent of a legal guardian. The legal guardian must consent to the processing of the applicant’s personal data or grant permission for the applicant to consent. Applicants under the age of sixteen must therefore assure that they are submitting their application with the express permission of a legal guardian.
§ 5 Purpose of Data Processing
When you apply for a position at MTU, we process your personal data especially for the following purposes:
- Preparing the decision whether to make you an offer of employment, to communicate our decision and, if an employment contract is concluded, to make salary payments etc.;
- Risk management and performance of audit procedures to prevent, detect, and react to, illegal, irregular or contractually non-compliant conducts;
- Compliance with legal (in particular social-security, aviation, tax, commercial or export control law) obligations;
- Assertion of legal claims and their (judicial or extra-judicial) enforcement
§ 6 Categories of Personal Data
The above named purposes require us to process personal data of the following categories:
- personal identification data such as last name, first name and date of birth
- address and other contact information
- billing and bank details, i.e. account information necessary for making payments
- personal profile information such as qualifications, credentials, certificates and references
- other data including your headshot and curriculum vitae and the answers and self-assessments you provide on the online test for trainees
All other responses to the application form are voluntary. Once your application is complete, your application data are forwarded to the company in the MTU Group which is responsible for filling the respective vacancy. The application data will be accessible to only two departments within that company: human resources and the relevant specialty department.
§ 7 Security measures to protect the data stored with us
We undertake to protect the personal data we store and to treat it as confidential. To prevent the loss or misuse of data stored by us, we take extensive technical and organizational safety precautions which are regularly checked and adapted to technological progress.
However, we would like to point out that due to the structure of the Internet, the data protection rules and the above-mentioned safety measures may not be observed by other persons or institutions outside our field of responsibility. In particular, unencrypted data transmitted by e-mail, for instance, can be read by third parties. We have no technical influence on this.
§ 8 Technical Procedures in Data Processing
When you use our online job application tool, some technical data are processed in addition to the personal data named above. These technical data are largely impersonal, i.e. without any clear link to you, and include the name of your Internet service provider, the page from which you were referred to our site, the names of the files you request and the time at which you request them.
