Thank you very much for your interest in the Aquila Group. The protection of your personal data is very important to us. Therefore we will inform you about the collection, processing and use of your data in the context of the online application in accordance with the relevant data protection regulations in the following.
Data collection and legal basis
We will collect from you and process the following personal data in the context of your online application (both on-spec applications and applications for job vacancies posted online):
- Last name, first name
- Telephone number
- E-Mail address
- Motivational Statement
The data collected from you is processed for the purpose of establishing an employment relationship (application process, initiation of an employment relationship). The legal basis for this is Art. 88 para. 1 GDPR in connection with § 26 para. 1, para. 8 sent. 2 German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).
The responsible body for data processing within the meaning of § 4 No. 7 GDPR is the company of the Aquila Group (meaning Aquila Capital Holding GmbH and its affiliated companies within the meaning of §§ 15 ff. German Stock Corporation Act) where the applicant is to be employed in the future. The contact information can be found here: www.aquila-capital.de/en/contact/locations
Purpose of data collection / disclosure
Your personal data is only collected and processed for the purpose of filling job vacancies within the Aquila Group. If you apply for a specific position, your data will be used by our central personnel department and, if applicable, by the responsible personnel managers of the company advertising the position. In addition, your applicant data will only be passed on to affiliated companies with your consent. This consent is voluntary and can be revoked at any time with effect for the future by e-mail to the contact person named in the application.
If you send us an initiative application, your data will be used - for the purpose of evaluating your application potential - by our central personnel department and, if applicable, by personnel managers in the affiliated companies that are suitable for you according to your qualification profile.
In order to manage all applications to a central location, we use software from the external service provider greenhouse. This service provider was carefully selected and commissioned by us and is bound by our instructions. A data processing agreement (DPA) was concluded.
Retention period for application data
Your data will automatically be erased six months after completion of the application procedure. This does not apply in cases in which legal regulations do not permit the erasure, where storage must be continued for evidentiary purposes or where you have expressly consented to a longer storage period.
Storage for future job vacancies
If we are unable to offer you a current vacancy but believe, based on your profile, that your application might be interesting with respect to future job vacancies, we will store your personal application data for a period of twelve months if you expressly agree to this storage and use.
You can revoke your consent to the processing of personal data at any time. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent that were given to us before the EU Data Protection Basic Regulation came into force, i.e. before 25 May 2018. Please note that the revocation is only effective for the future. Processing that took place before the revocation is therefore not affected by a revocation.
We have implemented various technical and organisational measures to protect the data collected in the context of your application against manipulation and unauthorised access.
Requests from data subjects
You have the following rights in relation to the personal data concerning you: the right of access pursuant to Article GDPR, the right to rectification pursuant to Article 16 GDPR, the right to erasure pursuant to Article 17 GDPR, the right to restriction pursuant to Article 18 GDPR, the right to object pursuant to Article 21 GDPR and the right of data portability pursuant to Article 20 GDPR. With regard to the right of information and the right of deletion, the restrictions pursuant to §§ 34 and 35 BDSG apply.
In addition, there is a right to lodge a complaint to a data protection supervisory authority (Article 77 GDPR in conjunction with § 19 BDSG), in Hamburg to the Hamburg Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information.
