If there is an employment relationship between you and us, we may, in accordance with Art. 88 GDPR, further process the personal data already received from you for the purposes of the employment relationship, insofar as this is necessary for the performance or termination of the employment relationship or for the exercise or fulfillment of the rights and obligations of the representation of employees' interests arising from a law or a collective agreement, a works or service agreement.

Applications are submitted directly to the integrated job portal of the respective target company (OeSD or youniqx).

The provision of personal data in the context of the conclusion of a

Please note that the revocation is only effective for the future. Processing that took place before the revocation is not affected by this.
