Your data will be processed as long as it is necessary for the purposes linked to the personal data and we have a legal ground to process your personal data. The personal data processed with consent as legal ground is only processed as long as we have valid consent.
After completion of a recruitment, there is certain information that we are obliged to save by law, e.g. information that might enter your employee file. If your personal data is processed by us for this purpose, we will ensure that it is processed only for the purposes stated in the legislation. Other information we might keep to defend against legal claims. We will delete your personal data after the time for bringing those claims has expired.
