Should the data be necessary for legal prosecution after completion of the application procedure, data may be processed on the basis of the requirements of Art. 6 GDPR, in particular to safeguard legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 Paragraph 1(f) GDPR. Our interest is then in asserting or defending claims.

Both the CODESYS Group and the provider use technical and organizational security measures to protect your collected data against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction, or against access by unauthorized persons. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.

Your applicant data will be reviewed by the personnel department after receipt of your application. All applications are made available internally to each department manager. Then the next steps are coordinated. In the company, only those persons have access to your data who need it for the proper course of our application procedure.
