Purpose and legal basis of the data processing
We process your personal data for the purpose of your application for an employment relationship, an
apprenticeship or a trainee relationship. As far as your personal data are required for the performance
of the application procedure, the legal basis for saving the data is Art. 88 EU General Data Protection
Regulation, GDPR, in conjunction with § 26 (1) Federal Data Protection Act, BDSG. In case you have given
additionally your explicit consent for the processing of your personal data for specific, optional
purposes, the legal basis for this is § 26 (2) BDSG as well as Art. 6 para. 1a GDPR. A given consent can be
withdrawn at any time, Art. 7 GDPR. Should it be necessary for legal prosecution, after the end of the
application procedure, to store your data for a longer period of time this will be done to protect our
legitimate interests in asserting or defending claims based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. In addition, we
check your required data against sanctions lists of the currently binding EU regulations. This is
processing that is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO).
Recipient of the data
Your personal data will only be passed on to those internal departments that require this data to fulfil
contractual and legal obligations, such as the personnel department, the department management,
the respective interest groups. It will not be passed on to third parties.
In case of a successful application, we transfer your data into your personal file and into our personnel
management system. In the event of rejection, your data will be deleted at the latest six months after
the end of the application procedure. If you give your explicit consent to the inclusion of your data in
our applicant pool, they will be deleted after two years. If costs were reimbursed to you in connection
with the invitation to an interview, we are legally obliged to keep the necessary accounting data for 10
years. Within the scope of checking against sanctions lists, the respective legal periods are observed.
Rights of the person concerned
In general, you have the right of access to your data, Art. 15 GDPR, the right to rectification of inaccurate
personal data, Art. 16 GDPR, the right to erasure of the data if they have been processed unlawfully,
Art. 17 GDPR, as well as the right to restriction of processing, Art. 18 GDPR, and data portability, Art. 20
GDPR. A given consent can be withdrawn at any time, Art. 7 GDPR. Furthermore, you have the right of
appeal to the supervisory authority. For the MPG this is the Bavarian regional data protection
supervisory authority (Bayerisches Landesamt für Datenschutzaufsicht), Postfach 1349, 91504 Ansbach.
