Your personal application data will be deleted automatically three months after the end of the application procedure. However, this does not apply where deletion is not possible for legal reasons, continued storage is necessary as an essential source of evidence or you have expressly agreed to a longer storage period.

Storage for future job vacancies 

If we are unable to offer you a placement at this particular time, but, due to your profile, believe your application could be of interest for future job vacancies, we shall store your personal application data for a period of twelve (12) months if you expressly consent to the storage and use of your data during this period.
