Nature and Scope of Data Processing

If you apply for a job at our law firm, we will collect the following data in this context:

  • Title, last name, first name
  • E-mail address
  • Further information and documents such as cover letter, curriculum vitae, certificates, etc. which you have provided to us in the context of your application

Your data will only be used for our decision on whether to establish an employment relationship with you and for any correspondence in this respect, and it is internally forwarded only to the responsible contact persons who will be involved in filling the position you are interested in. If you do not apply for a specific vacancy (unsolicited application), we will use your data for all positions which are vacant at the time of your application and which meet your requirements.

We are entitled to data processing for this purpose pursuant to Article 88 GDPR in conjunction with section 26 (1) 1 German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).

We will erase your data 6 months after completion of the application process, unless you agree to participate in the BEITEN BURKHARDT talent pool. We will transfer applicant data to the talent pool in order to be able to contact you for any later vancancies which may suit you. In this case your data can be viewed by the respective practice groups of BEITEN BURKHARDT and staff members involved in the application process to check whether your profile matches the requirements of current job vacancies. We will erase your career data stored for the talent pool after 2 years, unless you request earlier erasure from us.
