We take the protection of your private data very seri-ously and want you to feel perfectly comfortable in this respect, particularly with regard to your online application. The protection of your privacy during processing of personal data is an im-portant concern for us and one we take into consideration in our business processes.

The provision of personal information via the “Online Application” feature is neither a contractual or legal requirement, but is essential for realization of the application process using the “Online Application” feature.

Alternatively, however, you always have the option of submitting an application in the classic manner by mail or using the “Video Application” feature.

The information we have provided below will inform you about which data is stored when using the “Online Application” feature and how this data is used. This privacy statement applies exclu-sively to the aforementioned functionality and is therefore an addition to the general privacy policy which can be viewed in the footer of our website.

4 Types of data collected

Personal data is information with which we can relate directly or indirectly to you as a person. It includes your first and last name, gender, address, telephone number, date of birth and email address.

We process personal data collected during visits to our websites in accordance with the data protection regulations of the country in which the body responsible for data processing is locat-ed. Our data protection policy is otherwise governed by the Data Protection Code of Conduct applicable to Daimler AG. Various types of data are collected as part of an online application:

  • Data contained in the documents submitted by the applicant (e.g. resume (CV), cover letter, motivation, references, certificates, verifications);
  • the applicant's first and last name (incl. family prefix);
  • address information (e.g. postal address of the applicant);
  • communication data (e.g. email address and telephone number of the applicant);
  • how the applicant's attention has been attracted to the advertised position;
  • the URL of the applicant's website;
  • the applicant's earliest possible starting date;
  • the applicant's salary expectation;
  • where appropriate, data on the assessment and evaluation of an applicant in the appli-cation process (no automated decision-making, including profiling).

5 Purpose of personal data

When you use the “Online Application” feature on our website, personal data is collected via a software platform operated by a carefully selected external service provider committed to complying with relevant data protection regulations. This service provider is Workday Limited (The King´s Building, May Lane, Dublin 7, Ireland). Personal data collected in connection with an application is in all cases only used to process those applications submitted and to fill advertised vacancies. Any use of this data above and beyond this would only occur if and to the extent that this would be necessary to fulfill a legal obligation and/or to safeguard legal claims. Processing is initially restricted upon completion of the application process. Deletion then follows if storage periods and obligations no longer conflict with this.

6 Legal basis for use of your data

Processing of your data is based on one of the following legal bases:

  • Valid consent granted by you where appropriate which you can revoke at any time with effect for the future;
  • Art. 6 Subsection 1 b); Art. 88 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR);
  • Art. 6 Subsection 1 c) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR);
  • Section 26 of the German Federal Data Protection Act (latest version - § 26 BDSG (neu)).

7 Disclosure of your data to third parties

Data collected during the application process is not disclosed to third parties. Any use of this data above and beyond this would only apply if and to the extent that this would be necessary to fulfill a legal obligation and/or to safeguard legal claims.

8 Disclosure of your data to other countries

In principle, personal data collected in connection with an application will not be transferred to third countries, but is processed exclusively in member states of the European Union. Remote maintenance and support provided by Workday Limited which can be realized from third countries (USA, New Zealand, Canada) represent the sole exception to this principle. Each incident of this remote maintenance and support is approved in advance by Daimler TSS.

Contractual agreement on standard data protection clauses ensures in these cases that the level of protection guaranteed by the GDPR is not exceeded. We will be more than happy to provide you with a copy of these standard data protection clauses should you so wish. Please direct your inquiry towards the Data Protection Coordinator at Daimler TSS GmbH.
