In doing so, you provide us with your profile for a specific advertised position or internship. Your details will only be checked for this vacancy; they will only be checked for other vacancies if you have approved your profile for them.

Your application will be saved in our talent pool no longer than 2 years. Should you be interested in further participation beyond this, please inform us accordingly in the applicant portal. If you change your mind, you can withdraw your consent at any time.

Personal data processing takes place mainly utilising procedures and electronic support for the time strictly necessary to achieve the purposes for which the data was collected and, in any case, in compliance with applicable regulatory/legislative requirements. We do not use automated decision-making in the sense of Art. 22 GDPR.

We process your personal data only in accordance with European and German data protection regulations, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). Specifically, this means that we process your personal data in particular if, to the extent that and for as long as

  • you have given your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR),
  • it is necessary for the performance of a contract with you or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures that take place at your request (Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR),
  • it is necessary for the fulfilment of legal obligations to which we are subject (Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR) or
  • it is necessary for the protection of legitimate interests of us or of third parties (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR).

If, in exceptional cases, we process so-called special categories of personal data (data revealing national or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, as well as the processing of genetic data, biometric data uniquely identifying an individual, health data, or data concerning sex life or sexual orientation) about you, this will be done in particular if, to the extent that and for as long as:

  • you have given us your explicit consent (Art. 9 (2) (a) GDPR),
  • it is necessary for us to exercise our or your rights under employment law and social security and social protection law and to comply with our or your obligations in this regard (Art. 9 (2) (b) GDPR),
  • it relates to personal data that you have manifestly made public (Art. 9 (2) (e) GDPR),
  • it is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims (Art. 9 (2) (f) GDPR), or
  • it is necessary for the purposes of preventive health care or occupational medicine, for the assessment of the employee's fitness for work, for medical diagnosis, health or social care or treatment, or for the management of health or social care systems and services (Art. 9 (2) (h) GDPR), or
  • if the data processing serves the purposes of an employment according to Sec. 26 of the German Federal Data Protection Act.

We will only disclose your personal data to other recipients if this is necessary to fulfil the purposes described, you have given us your consent to do so, or we are required to do so by law or by a court or administrative order.

Recipients outside of our group of companies (Bracco Spa), especially:

  • IT service providers
  • Marketing service providers
  • Printing service providers
  • Government agencies (e.g. tax authorities)

Recipients outside of our Group of companies (special cases), especially:

  • Government agencies (e.g. courts and public prosecutors)
  • Potential and actual acquirers of the company

Recipients within our Group of companies:
We are part of the Bracco Group companies and work together with other Group companies on a division of labour. Personal data is only transferred to other Group companies if there is a legal basis for doing so and if this is necessary for one of the purposes listed above. The Bracco Group companies have concluded a group-wide agreement on the handling of personal data for this purpose.

In principle, your personal data is processed in Germany and in other European countries. If, by way of exception, your personal data is processed in countries outside the European Union or the European Economic Area (so-called third countries), this only takes place insofar as certain protective measures ensure that an appropriate level of data protection exists for this purpose. Typically, we take the following protective measures for this purpose:

Further information about third country transfers or copies of these measures can be obtained at the contact addresses listed above.

We retain your personal data only for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes described. The review of the time periods required for this is carried out through careful consideration, in the course of which we closely examine the necessity of the data processing:

  • If we process your personal data on the basis of your consent, we will usually retain it until you withdraw your consent.
  • Otherwise, we only retain your personal data to the extent necessary to fulfil our contractual and legal obligations or to preserve evidence within the scope of the statutory limitation provisions. The most important statutory retention obligations result from Section 257 of the German Commercial Code (HGB) and Section 147 of the German Fiscal Code (AO) and are six and ten years respectively. The statutory periods of limitation can be up to thirty years in accordance with Section 195 et seq. of the German Civil Code (BGB), with the regular period of limitation being three years.
  • Your application will be deleted from our application management system after no later than six months, unless you have explicitly consented to your personal data being stored in our talent pool. This consent can be revoked at any time.

After expiration of the applicable retention periods, we will securely delete or anonymize your personal data.

Primarily, we process personal data that we receive directly from you in the course of your use of the website, e.g. via the application in the careers section.

In some cases, we also process personal data that we have not received directly from you. This relates to data that we have permissibly obtained from publicly accessible sources (e.g. the Internet, the press, trade and association registers) or that we have been legitimately provided with by other Group companies or by other third parties (e.g. a credit agency).
