You can participate in our events.

We process your data exclusively for the purpose of carrying out the events. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1)(b) GDPR.

Handling of applicant data.
We offer you the opportunity to apply for a job with us (e.g. by e-mail, post or via the online application form on our website). In the following, we inform you about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected during the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing and use of your data will be carried out in accordance with applicable data protection law and all other legal provisions and that your data will be treated in strict confidence.
Scope and purpose of data collection.
When you send us an application, we collect your associated personal data (contact and communication data, application documents (in particular cover letter, letter of motivation, CV, certificates, references), information in the context of job interviews) and process the data to the extent necessary to decide on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is § 26 BDSG, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO in conjunction with. § 26 BDSG. Your personal data will be processed within our company of the Grabarz & Partner Group (these are Grabarz & Partner Service & Holding GmbH & Co. KG, Grabarz & Partner Werbeagentur GmbH, Grabarz XCT GmbH and Punch GmbH) exclusively to persons who are involved in the processing of your application (these are the employees of the personnel department and the decision-makers of the respective specialist departments).
If the application is successful, the data submitted by you will be processed based on § 26 BDSG and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO in conjunction with. § 26 BDSG for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship stored in our data processing systems.
Retention period of the data.
If we are unable to offer you an employment relationship, if you reject an offer of employment or withdraw your application, we reserve the right to retain the data you have provided for up to 6 (six) months from the termination of the application process (rejection or withdrawal of the application). Thereafter, the data will be deleted and the physical application documents destroyed. Retention serves in particular for purposes of proof in the event of a legal dispute. If it is apparent that the data will be required after the 6-month period has expired (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), the data will not be deleted until the purpose for continued storage no longer applies.
If you give your consent, we will store your data collected during the application process in our applicant database for a period of up to 3 (three) years even after the end of the application process for the purpose of enabling subsequent contact for professional purposes and possible consideration for future job placements by the companies of the Grabarz & Partner Group (these are Grabarz & Partner Service & Holding GmbH & Co. KG, Grabarz & Partner Werbeagentur GmbH, Grabarz XCT GmbH and Punch GmbH). The legal basis for this is § 26 BDSG, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO in conjunction with. § 26 BDSG. Subsequently, the data will be deleted and the physical application documents destroyed.
You can revoke your consent at any time and without justification with effect for the future (e.g. by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org). Further consideration of the data for open positions will not take place in the event of revocation. The data will then be deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
