Application documents such as motivation letters, your curriculum vitae, professional, educational and training qualifications and job references are also collected. It goes without saying that any additional information contained in such documents is treated by us with the same degree of confidentiality as the other information submitted by you in order to submit you application.

All the information disclosed by you when applying for a job is provided voluntarily and enables us to examine your application.

You want to reply to a job ad for Bucherer? The information and documents submitted by you via the indicated email or by post are primarily processed and stored by Bucherer. The purpose of the processing is to check your application with regard to the job offered.

The data is solely processed in relation to your application. 

4. What is the statutory/legal basis for processing your personal data? 

We process personal data in line with the applicable privacy laws (e.g. the GDPR) and other relevant laws.

If you provide your explicit consent for the processing of your personal data for specific purposes, this processing is deemed lawful based on the consent provided by you.

5. How and where is your data stored? How long is it stored and when is it deleted?

Your data is stored on behalf of Bucherer on a server run by our hosting provider Wanstor Ltd. The server is located in London / UK. Your data is protected at all times using appropriate organisational and technical means against accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. All the security measures are adapted on an ongoing basis to incorporate the most recent technological developments. Your data is stored for as long as the application for the advertised post in question is ongoing or when it becomes clear that a vacancy will not be taken up. If you successfully conclude the application process, your information and data is retrieved from the system and transferred to your personnel file and stored there. All the information and documents relating to unsuccessful candidates for a job are erased four (4) months after the application process has concluded at the very latest. No announcement is issued regarding the erasure of data.

If you are interested in other job offers within the Bucherer you can authorise us to store and process your data beyond the period corresponding to a specific application process. This enables us to consider your application to see whether it meets the requirements of another position (see consent for storage of your applicant details in no. 8 below).

Your data and documents can only be accessed by employees at the personnel services division and by the persons at Bucherer or Bucherer Group with specific responsibility for such matters.
