Personal data within the recruitment process will be used for the
assessment of your application and, if an employment relationship is
established, also for the execution of the employment relationship. For
specific positions this includes your participation in an online cognitive
ability or personality test. The legal basis for the cognitive ability test is
Section 26 (1) in conjunction with (8) Sentence 2 of the German Federal Data
Protection Act (BDSG) and Section 22 (1) b) BDSG. Providing your personal data
as part of the application process is voluntary. However, the provision of
personal data is necessary for the processing of your application or the
conclusion of an employment contract with us.
The legal basis for the personality test is your consent pursuant to
Section 26 (2) BDSG. Participation in the personality test is voluntary.
When we obtain information from your public profile on professional social
networks, such as LinkedIn, we base this processing on our legitimate interest
to build a decision base in order to establish an employment relationship with
you. The legal basis is Article 6 f) GDPR in conjunction with Article 9 (2) e)
When we invite you to participate in a survey on your satisfaction with
the application process at Beiersdorf the relevant legal basis is your consent
pursuant to Section 26 BDSG in conjunction with Article 7 GDPR. The same legal
basis applies when you subscribe for our Job Agent to receive information on
current open job postings.
Furthermore, we may process personal data about you where this is
necessary to defend ourselves against legal claims arising from the application
process that are brought against us. The legal basis for this is Article 6 (1)
b and f) GDPR; the legitimate interest is, for example, a burden of proof in
proceedings under the German General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
