3.1. Personal data you provide us with directly (Art 13 GDPR)

3.1.1. Contact data

If you contact us via phone, fax, post , we store the your personal data which has been disclosed by you (salutation, first name, last name, mail-address, phone number), as well as the content of your enquiry. This information will be stored in order to process your enquiry and handle any potential follow-up questions on the basis of our legitimate interests to fulfil your requests and expectations (Art 6 (1) f GDPR). The provision of this contact data is neither a statutory or contractual requirement, nor a requirement necessary to enter into a contract, however, the failure to provide such data would have the consequences that we cannot process your enquiry and get in touch with you.

If required for the processing of the enquiry, we may forward the provided data to one of our other group companies of Erste Group for this purpose.

3.1.2. Registration data for applications; applicant data

If you submit an application via our online application tool, you will have to register. We process the username, the password and the mail-address to provide you the account for your application. If you voluntarily provide us your full name, salutation, title, address, phone number and highest degree, we will use this information as well in the application process. Furthermore, we always save the date of registration as well as information regarding the last visit to the application and recommendation list. Your personal data are processed for the purpose of the provision of an online platform, for placing your application documents and completing the application process. Providing us with this data can be necessary for entering into a contract (employment agreement) with us. If you do not provide us with your data, you cannot use our online application tool and we cannot process and consider your application.

We process the mentioned personal data either to take steps prior to entering into a contract (conclusion of an employment agreement) (Art 6 (1) b GDPR) or on the basis of your explicit consent (Art 6 (1) a GDPR).

After the application process has been completed, data will only be further processed by us in case we will welcome you as our new employee, or if you allow us to keep your application on file for future consideration. Otherwise the data will be deleted. However, with regard to the data you provided voluntarily to us, you can at any time withdraw your consent for the further processing and storage of the data. Please note, that this withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on your consent before your withdrawal.

We use for our Online application tool SAP Successfactors as our data processor. Since SAP Successfactors is based in United States there will be a transfer of personal data to a third country outside EEA. Thus, if you use our Online application tool you thereby consent to the transfer of your personal data according Art 49 (1) a GDPR.
