3.6 Is there an obligation to provide your data?
Please note that you are not obliged to provide your data as part of the application process. However, it is not possible to process the application and establish an employment relationship without processing your data, so unfortunately your application cannot be considered without providing the data.

In accordance with the legal requirements, we process your applicant data for the above-mentioned purposes only to the extent that this is actually necessary for the application process. Conversely, this means that we reserve the right not to consider an application if you do not provide data that we have specified as mandatory fields in the application portal or if you do not answer questions that we ask you during the application process. We will inform you if this is different in individual cases.

3.7 Storage period
If you apply for a job with us via our website, you give us your consent during the application process to include your application data in our applicant database so that we can contact you as part of the application process. For this purpose, your application data will be stored for a period of 6 months and then automatically deleted. This period is automatically reset within the 6 months if you apply again for another position with us. However, you can also request that we delete your applicant data at any time if you do not agree to the data being stored for this period.

If you register for the Applicant Pool, you agree that we may store your documents for a further 6 months so that we can contact you proactively with suitable job offers. Before the 6 months expire, you will receive an automatically generated e-mail from us in which you can agree again to an extension of the storage period. You can revoke this, as well as the initial declaration to store the data, at any time.

3.8 automated individual decision-making on a case-by-case basis
For positions at our headquarters and for regular positions in our stores, our decision on whether to accept your application is generally not based on an automated decision; instead, each application is reviewed and evaluated by the relevant employees at our company.

However, in the case of applications from trainees, an automated pre-selection is made based on specific qualification characteristics (including the qualified school-leaving certificate, the number of hours missed and the language level).

In the case of applications for dual study places at headquarters, pre-selection is based on school grades.

In the event of such a (partially) automated individual case decision, you have a right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of Douglas as the person responsible, to express your own point of view and to contest the decision.
