c) When you contact us or place an order

If you have any questions, we offer you the opportunity to get in touch with us by filling out the contact form on our website. You will have to enter a valid email address, so that we know who has sent the enquiry and can respond accordingly. Further information may be provided voluntarily. We will process your data for the purpose of communicating with you on the basis of your optional consent provided in accordance with point (a) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR. The personal data collected via the contact form will be automatically deleted once we have dealt with your enquiry. We will comply with the statutory deletion requirements.

d) When you submit an application

We generally collect personal data over the course of our application processes. You can send your application to recruitment@tautropfen.com. If you do this, all personal data collected from you will be immediately deleted after we have checked your documents.

In accordance with Art. 13 (1) and (2) GDPR, our employees will immediately inform you in writing that your documents have been received and explain how and why your data is being collected and how long it will be kept prior to deletion.

Your data will generally be stored for the duration of the application process and, when the vacancy is filled, for a further 3 months thereafter.
