The personal data that you provide to us in the course of the registration or application process will be treated as confidential by us and our external service-providers. It will be collected, processed and used in accordance with existing data protection legislation.
After registering for the first time or submitting an online application you will receive your personal login details by e-mail. This will provide you with password-protected access to your data. The transmission of data on the applications portal is encrypted (SSL encryption).
Job vacancies/calls for applications
If you are interested in applying for a position advertised on our Careers page, your data will be collected, processed and used primarily for the purposes of filling the vacancy by the HR department in the relevant company. As part of the recruitment process, relevant management personnel will also have access to your application details. We reserve the right to pass this information on to other companies in the RWE group in so far as the details given in your application indicate that you may also be a suitable candidate for other job vacancies at RWE AG or its subsidiaries. If other potential openings are identified during this internal data transmission process, a central "position" will be activated (in the HR Group Processes department). Your data will still be treated as confidential and will not be passed on to third parties.
When applying for a traineeship, please note that the selection process may be carried out by an RWE subsidiary because trainee positions often have a group-wide character.
In this case, your application details will be handled as part of a group-wide process.
Joining the Applicant Pool
You are free to register with our Applicant Pool. Your details may be stored in the pool as part of such a registration or in the course of applying for a specific vacancy. If you decide to join our Applicant Pool your personal data may be accessed by HR staff in the RWE Group – including international subsidiaries – for the purposes of filling job vacancies. We will not pass your data to third parties outside of the RWE Group.
You have the right to use your password-protected access to change or delete your data at any time. The Applicant Pool does not apply to trainee positions.
Deletion of data
Your data will be deleted at the end of the statutory retention period. If you have made your data available in the Applicant Pool you will be sent an e-mail before the end of this retention period with a request to update your details. If you do not update your details your data will be deleted 6 months after the last update.
