Automated anonymization of your data
If your application for a job offer is not successful, Witzenmann GmbH saves the transmitted data for six months in its applicant database in order to comply with legal regulations and particularly the obligation to produce supporting documents according to the General Act on Equal Treatment (German abbreviation: AGG). After six months, your data will be anonymized and your files will be deleted in the respective application process.

Your created candidate profile and the data and files stored there, can still be viewed by the recruiters using the candidate search, as long as you actively log into your candidate profile. Six months after your last active login to your candidate profile, theses data and files will be anonymized as well. Two weeks before the anonymization of your candidate profile, you will receive an email notification of the upcoming anonymization with the possibility of preventing this by logging in.
