Schüco takes protecting your personal data seriously. We always handle this data confidentially and in accordance with German data protection provisions, in particular the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz) and the German Telecommunications Act (Telemediengesetz). The following information on data protection is intended to give you as detailed an overview as possible as to what happens to your data, particularly when using the e-recruiting service.

In the absence of any special provisions and/or provisions to the contrary below relating to the online application system, please note that our General information on data protection also applies.

This declaration applies exclusively to Schüco International KG (hereinafter "Schüco").

Until the end of this period, your Data will only be stored in case of a legal dispute due to any infringement of the ban on discrimination in accordance with the German Anti-Discrimination Act (Antidiskriminierungsgesetz). Staff in the HR Department will then no longer be able to view the transmitted Data. Before this 12-month period expires, you can reactivate your Data at any time.
