4. Is there an obligation to provide the data?
The provision of your data is not required by law. In the case of non-provision of the required data, we cannot take you into consideration in the event of possible future job opportunities and vacancies within the scope of staffing new positions.
5. For what purposes do we process your data, and what are the legal grounds for the processing?
5.1 Conduct of application procedures
Your data are accepted by the department Executive HR and, as appropriate, forwarded to the appropriate business departments with potential job opportunities and vacancies or to the persons responsible for the handling of the application procedure. All involved persons treat your application documents with due care and confidentiality.
We process your data that you send to us in connection with an application so that we can determine your suitability for possible vacancies (or possibly in general for positions in the member companies of REWE Group) and to carry out the application procedure. The legal grounds for the data processing described above are point (b) of Art. 6 (1) General Data Protection Regulation and Section 26 (1) first sentence BDSG [Federal Data Protection Act] (decision regarding the establishment of an employment relationship).
If we conclude an employment contract with you, we will process your data further for the purposes of the employment relationship insofar as this is necessary for its performance or termination. The legal grounds for the data processing described above are point (b) of Art. 6 (1) General Data Protection Regulation and Section 26 (1) first sentence BDSG (conduct of the employment relationship).
5.2 Defence against legal claims
We process your data insofar as this is required for defence against legal claims asserted with regard to the application procedure. The legal grounds are found in point (f) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR (weighing of interests based on the interests of the member companies of REWE Group at which you have applied for a position or submitted an unsolicited application, defending against claims in proceedings in accordance with the General Equal Treatment Act).
5.3 Pool of candidates
In the event your application is not suitable for currently open positions, but might be suitable for consideration in the event of other open vacancies in the future, you will be added to our pool of candidates pursuant to your electronic consent.
If you agree to your inclusion in our pool of candidates, we will process your data in a broader scope than that related to a specific application procedure. This makes it possible for HR consultants to get back to you at a later date with new job positions at member companies of REWE Group that are in line with your personal qualifications and interests.
Consideration of your application in a new application procedure of this type is possible solely with your consent. You may edit, modify or delete the data you provide to us at any time. The legal basis for the data processing described above is point (a) of Art. 6 (1) General Data Protection Regulation (Consent).
6. Who has access to your data and for what reason?
Within the member company of REWE Group to which you have submitted an application or, in the event your application documents have been forwarded, the pertinent member company of REWE Group, solely those persons who have a need to know for the performance of the duties assigned to them have access to your data. Essentially, this means the personnel in the HR department.
