TWT GMBH Data Protection Notice on Job Applications

We are pleased that you would like to apply for a job with us. In the following, we explain how we process your personal data in the context of an application and provide further relevant information.

1. Who is responsible for processing your personal data?

TWT GmbH Science & Innovation, Industriestraße 6, 70565 Stuttgart (hereinafter referred to as "we") is the controller within the meaning of the EU General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR").

2. Data Protection Officer

For all questions relating to the processing of your personal data and the exercise of your rights under the GDPR, you can consult our Data Protection Officer, who can be contacted at datenschutz[at]twt-gmbh.de. datenschutz[at]twt-gmbh.de. datenschutz[at]twt-gmbh.de.

3. For what purposes and on what legal basis do we process personal data?

We process your personal data for the purpose of your application for employment, insofar as this is necessary for the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship with us. The legal basis for this is Section 26 para. 1 in conjunction with para. 8 sentence 2 of the Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz, BDSG). Furthermore, we may process personal data about you insofar as this is necessary for the defence of asserted legal claims against us arising from the application process. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1, lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Act on Equal Treatment (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz, AGG).

Insofar as an employment relationship arises between you and us, we may further process the personal data already received from you for the purposes of the employment relationship in accordance with Section 26 para. 1 BDSG if this is necessary for the implementation or termination of the employment relationship or for the exercise or fulfilment of the employee representative body's rights and obligations resulting from a law or a bargaining agreement, a works or service agreement (collective agreement).

4. What categories of personal data do we process?

We process data related to your application. This may be general personal data (such as name, address and contact details), information about your professional qualifications and school education or information about advanced vocational training or other information you submit to us in connection with your application. We may also process job-related information you have made accessible to the public, such as a profile on professional social media networks.

5. Is the transfer to a third country intended?

A transfer to a third country is not intended.

6. 6. How long will your data be stored?

We store your personal data for as long as is necessary to make a decision about your application. Insofar as an employment relationship between you and us will not be established, we may also continue to store data as far as this is necessary for the defence against possible legal claims. In this context, the application documents are deleted six months after notification of the rejection decision, unless longer storage is required due to legal disputes.

7. What rights do you have?

As an applicant for employment with us, you have - depending on the situation in the individual case - the following data protection rights, which you can exercise at any time by contacting us or our data protection officer using the data specified in items 1 and 2:

a. Information and right of access

You have the right to obtain information about your personal data processed by us and to request access to and/or copies of your personal data. This includes information about the purpose of its use, the category of data used, its recipients and persons authorised to access it, as well as, if possible, the planned duration of data storage or, if this is impossible, the criteria for determining this duration.

b. Rectification, erasure or restriction of processing

You have the right to request us to rectify any inaccurate personal data relating to you without undue delay. Taking into account the purposes of processing, you have the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by way of a supplementary declaration.

c. Right to object

Insofar as the processing of personal data concerning you is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of such data at any time on grounds relating to your particular situation. We will then no longer process this personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

d. Right of withdrawal

If the processing is based on consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time without affecting the lawfulness of the processing based on consent until its withdrawal. To do this, you may contact us or our Data Protection Officer at any time using the details provided above.

e. Right to erasure

You have the right to request that we erase personal data relating to you without undue delay and we are obliged to erase personal data without undue delay if one of the following grounds applies:

§  Die personenbezogenen Daten sind für die Zwecke, für die sie erhoben oder auf sonstige Weise verarbeitet wurden, nicht mehr notwendig.

§  Sie legen gemäß obiger Nummer 7.c Widerspruch gegen die Verarbeitung ein und es liegen keine vorrangigen berechtigten Gründe für die Verarbeitung vor.

§  Die personenbezogenen Daten wurden unrechtmäßig verarbeitet.

§  Die Löschung der personenbezogenen Daten ist zur Erfüllung einer rechtlichen Verpflichtung nach dem Unionsrecht oder dem Recht der Mitgliedstaaten erforderlich, dem wir unterliegen.

This does not apply insofar as the processing is necessary:

§  Zur Erfüllung einer rechtlichen Verpflichtung, die die Verarbeitung nach dem Recht der Union oder der Mitgliedstaaten, dem wir unterliegen, erfordert.

§  Zur Geltendmachung, Ausübung oder Verteidigung von Rechtsansprüchen.

f. Right to restrict processing

You have the right to request us to restrict processing if one of the following conditions is met:

§  Die Richtigkeit der personenbezogenen Daten von Ihnen bestritten wird, und zwar für eine Dauer, die es uns ermöglicht, die Richtigkeit der personenbezogenen Daten zu überprüfen.

§  Die Verarbeitung unrechtmäßig ist und Sie die Löschung der personenbezogenen Daten ablehnen und stattdessen die Einschränkung der Nutzung der personenbezogenen Daten verlangen.

§  Wir die personenbezogenen Daten für die Zwecke der Verarbeitung nicht länger benötigen, Sie sie jedoch zur Geltendmachung, Ausübung oder Verteidigung von Rechtsansprüchen benötigen.

§  Sie Widerspruch gegen die Verarbeitung gemäß obiger Nummer 7.c eingelegt haben, solange noch nicht feststeht, ob unsere berechtigten Gründe gegenüber den Ihrigen überwiegen.

Where processing has been restricted in accordance with this item, such personal data may be processed - with the exception of storage - only with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of substantial public interest of the Union or of a Member State. If you have obtained a restriction on processing, we will inform you before the restriction is lifted.

g. Right to lodge a complaint

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR.

8. 8. Necessity of providing personal data

The provision of personal data is neither legally nor contractually required, nor are you obliged to provide the personal data. However, the provision of such personal data is necessary for concluding an employment contract with us. Consequently, if you do not provide us with personal data when applying for a job, we will not enter into an employment relationship with you.

TWT GmbH Data Protection Notice on our Social Media Presence

Data Processing by Social Networks

We maintain publicly accessible profiles on social networks. The individual social networks used by us are outlined below.

As a rule, social networks such as Facebook, Google+ and others can comprehensively analyse your behaviour as a user when visiting their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. like buttons or advertising banners). By visiting our social media presences, numerous processing operations relevant to data protection are triggered. In particular:

If you are logged into your social media account and visit our social media presence, the social media portal operator may assign this visit to your user account. However, your personal data may also be acquired under certain circumstances if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portal. In this case, such data is acquired, for example, via cookies stored on your terminal equipment or by recording your IP address.

Using the data thus gathered, the operators of these social media portals are enabled to create user profiles containing your preferences and interests. In this way, interest-based advertising can be displayed to you both inside and outside the respective social media presence. Provided you have an account with the respective social network, the interest-based advertising may be displayed on all devices on which you are or were logged in.

Please note that we cannot track all processing operations on the social media portals. Depending on the provider, further processing procedures may therefore be carried out by the operators of the social media portals. For details, please refer to the terms of use and data protection provisions/privacy policies of the respective social media portals.

Legal Basis

Our social media presences are intended to ensure the most comprehensive presence possible on the internet. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The analysis processes initiated by the social networks may be based on different legal bases, which must be stated by social network operators (e. g. consent within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR).

Controller and Assertion of Rights

If you are accessing one of our social media sites, we and the social media platform operator are jointly responsible for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. In principle, you may assert your rights (information, rectification, erasure, restriction of processing, data portability and complaint) both vis-à-vis us and vis-à-vis the operator of the respective social media portal.

Please note that despite the joint responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have full control over the data processing operations of the social media portals. Our options are largely determined by the respective provider's corporate policy.

Duration of Storage

The data collected directly by us via the social media presence will be erased from our systems as soon as the purpose for storing it no longer applies, you request us to erase it or revoke your consent to store it. Stored cookies remain on your terminal equipment until you delete them. Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

We have no influence on the duration of storage of your data, which is stored by the social network operators for their own purposes. For details, please contact the operators of the social networks directly (e.g. in their Data Protection Notice/Privacy Policy, see below).

Social Networks in Detail


We run a channel on YouTube. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4 Ireland. For details on how they handle your personal data, please refer to YouTube’s Privacy Policy:
