Legal basis for processing

It goes without saying that we adhere to applicable law when processing your personal data, so processing is only done on a legal basis. The following legal foundations in particular are given due consideration:

  1. Art. 26 German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG in the version of 25.05.2018 or later) to the extent necessary to implement the employment relationship or clarify concrete suspicion of criminal acts
  2. Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) on the basis of consent from you; consent of this kind is fundamentally not required, however, for the conclusion or continuation of a contract
  3. Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.b) for the justification, execution and termination of a contractual relationship
  4. Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.c) for the fulfilment of a legal obligation
  5. Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) for the upholding of a justified interest
  6. Art. 88 GDPR on the basis of collective agreements (in-house agreements)

If we process your personal data within the scope of our justified interests, the reasons lie in:

  • The conducting of electronic access checks
  • The optimization of personnel planning
  • The achieveing of efficiency gains through the consolidation of services in individual group companies (in particular marketing, IT, procurement)
  • The assurance of compliance with security regulations, conditions, industrial standards and contractual obligations
  • The assertion, exercising or defence of legal claims, incl. data on the documentation of the flow of benefits
  • The avoidance of damage to and/or liability on the part of the company by means of the appropriate measures
  • The conducting of in-house information and communication measures
  • Reporting on company information

You have the right to object to the processing of personal data within the scope of justified interests for reasons resulting from your special situation. We will then cease to process your data unless we can produce evidence of compelling reasons worthy of protection which outweigh your interests, rights and liberties, or the processing of the data serves the purpose of the assertion, exercising or defence of legal claims.

Data collected by third parties

We collect data on wage accounting via the Electronic Wage Tax Criteria (ELSTAM) which provides us with the necessary financial administration means for correct accounting. This affects the wage accounting data listed below.

Storage period

Once each purpose has been met, your data is usually deleted after 6 or 10 years under observance of the legal retention periods, but this can be as long as 30 years or more with various data categories, such as occupational pension schemes.
