Such assessments are typically conducted using third-party software or through a third-party company that shares the results with us. Before carrying out such an assessment, we will provide you with additional information regarding your specific case,

Generally speaking, we will only contact these individuals if you provide us with their names and contact information.

We process your personal data because the processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interest we are pursuing or consent if you have asked us for it. Our legitimate interest in this case is to recruit qualified candidates for the respective job positions.


It is important that you understand that it is your personal data that we are processing and that we want you to understand this. Although we do not need your permission to process your personal data, you have many rights in relation to the processing of your personal data.
