Please note, however, that in this case some functions of Prescreen may not be available to you to their full extent.

If we use cookies that require consent, when you first access our website there will appear a cookie banner on which you can agree to the use of cookies that require consent. If you wish to change your cookie settings at a later date, you can make the change on the website in the “Cookies” section.

    1. Companies with which contact is to be made in the context of your application process.
    2. Sub-contracted processors acting as IT service providers help us provide our services and in the context of hosting services. They have registered offices in Austria and Germany.

    1. Personal data of rejected applicants are stored for a maximum of six months, starting from the date of rejection of the application. If you prefer a longer storage period for your application process (to continue your application at a later date, for example), we request that you adjust the settings accordingly when you register.

    2. Longer storage periods may also result from the fact that the data are required to assert, exercise or defend legal claims in respect of the authorities or if statutory storage periods apply. The data will be stored as long as necessary to fulfil these purposes.
  7. Your rights with regard to stored data

    1. You have the right to free information about the personal data about you that we process, as well as the right to correct and erase data, to limit data processing, and the right to data transferability.
