Protecting your data is of utmost importance to us. Our privacy statements for different groups of data subjects offer a brief overview of the personal data we collect and what it is used for.

We, CAMPUS 02 University of Applied Sciences (abbr. CAMPUS 02), Körblergasse 126, 8010 Graz, Austria, process the following personal data categories by automated means:

  • Data we mainly receive from you via e-mail in the course of the application procedure (e.g. name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, date of birth, citizenship, CV, motivational statement, certificates and other data provided by you during application); and
  • data that is generated during the application process (e.g. in job interviews, hearings with the appointment committee or through other forms of communication).

We process this data to ensure lawful conduction of the application procedure. Pre-contractual measures stipulated in Art. 6 para. 1 cl. b of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serve as the legal basis.

You have no legal or contractual obligation to provide us with your data. However, we cannot conduct the application procedure, if you do not provide us with the data we require to do so.

We process any sensitive data (e.g. religious beliefs) based on your explicit consent, which you give on a voluntary basis when submitting your application, in accordance with Art. 9 para. 2 cl. a of the GDPR.

If you have given us consent to keep your application on file for future reference, we will also process your data to be able to contact you or inform you of other interesting vacancies. Your consent according to Art. 6 para. 1, cl. a of the GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that your application is successful, we will further process your data to the extent required for concluding your employment contract.

If you have given us consent to keep your application on file for future reference, we will process your data until you withdraw your consent, yet only for a maximum of two years, starting from the time you gave consent.

The retention period may be extended in all cases where judicial or administrative proceedings are pending in which CAMPUS 02 has party status and in which this data is at issue.

Your personal data is treated as confidential and is generally processed only by CAMPUS 02 staff members internally.

In addition, standard contractual clauses apply.
