1.1 Processing of data relating to employees and retirees

NanoNeal Technologies/NNTech saves and processes personal data of employees, former employees, retirees and their relatives in fulfillment of all contractual and legal requirements and obligations.

Personal data that is not essential to the fulfillment of contractual and legal requirements are only processed if employees have granted their permission.

The information is processed within the whole company group to ensure that trouble-free service is provided.

1.3 Applicants

The contact data and application documents provided by applicants for a job are electronically processed to allow suitable candidates to be selected. Data are kept on record should an application be rejected, enabling review should other positions that match an applicant’s profile become open or the position for which the application was originally submitted again become vacant; this allows the application process to be accelerated in such cases. While data is on record, only a limited group of people – the Human Resources department – have access to application documents. Before any data is forwarded to another business unit within the company, applicants will be contacted to obtain their permission. Data will be erased no later than three years after a rejection.
