With differing legal privacy frameworks worldwide, it is necessary in an international group to determine rules and specifications for handling personal data. This policy establishes a group-wide standard and also applies to countries that currently do not have a comprehensive statutory privacy framework.
The privacy of our candidates is very important to Us and We have therefore implemented technical and organizational security measures to ensure that your privacy is not violated. The information you provide that We process will at all times be processed and protected in accordance with applicable law and this Policy. You are always welcome to contact us via e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about data protection or our processing of your personal data.
