The log files will be deleted after a maximum of seven days, unless there is a need to retain the data for the aforementioned purpose due to specific events.
Additional storage is possible. In this case, users’ IP addresses are deleted or obfuscated, so that an assignment to a specific user is no longer possible

Data will be retained for as long as we consider you to be a potential candidate for the job offer and thereafter for at least the duration of your employment or, if we do not agree on an employment contract, for at least four months after the job has been awarded to a third party in order to respond to discrimination claims. If you expressly consent, we may store your data for up to two years in case other applications might match your profile.
