Recruitment Privacy Notice


Within the recruitment process, we collect and store the following categories of personal data about you:

  • Data which you have provided to us in your candidate profile, including first and last name, address, country, e-mail, phone number.
  • Data which you have submitted to us via email or entered on our candidate application form, including desired annual salary, your motivation, information about disabilities (if and to the extent that it is relevant for the job offered).
  • Data which you have provided to us in your application documents (curriculum vitae CV, cover letter) including work experience, qualifications and language skills.
  • Data from video interviews (if applicable).
  • Data provided to us by your referees (if applicable). These are reference points that you have given us to contact.

We collect personal data directly from you or from our external partners, e.g. headhunters. We can also obtain information from professional social networks, such as LinkedIn, job boards such as Monster, and from other publicly accessible sources (only information relevant to your professional life) for the purposes of actively approaching you with job offers or for the purpose of confirming the accuracy of the information presented by you within the course of the application.


Your personal data may be used for following purposes:

  • To assess your application for the job offered and to communicate with you within the recruitment process
  • To contact you in case of an alternative career opportunity within PANION or ABB eMobility division
  • Based on your consent to ask you about your experience within the recruitment process
  • To contact you following your unsolicited application
  • Based on your consent to send you personalized information on current open job postings


Personal data within the recruitment process will be used for the assessment of your application and, if an employment relationship is established, also for the execution of the employment relationship. Providing your personal data as part of the application process is voluntary. However, the provision of personal data is necessary for the processing of your application or the conclusion of an employment contract with us.

When we obtain information from your public profile on professional social networks, such as LinkedIn, we base this processing on our legitimate interest to build a decision base in order to establish an employment relationship with you. The legal basis is Article 6 f) GDPR in conjunction with Article 9 (2) e) GDPR.

When we invite you to participate in a survey on your satisfaction with the application process at PANION the relevant legal basis is your consent pursuant to Section 26 BDSG in conjunction with Article 7 GDPR.

Furthermore, we may process personal data about you where this is necessary to defend ourselves against legal claims arising from the application process that are brought against us. The legal basis for this is Article 6 (1) b and f) GDPR; the legitimate interest is, for example, a burden of proof in proceedings under the German General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).


We may transfer share your personal data to companies affiliated with us provided this is permissible within the scope of the purposes and legal bases outlined above. For the processing activities in our online recruiting system, PANION and its affiliated companies are jointly responsible. The essence of the arrangement of this joint determination is that ABB eMobility Digital Venture GmbH, Germany, is predominantly responsible to fulfill information duties according to data protection law and provide information on the joint processing. We might share your candidate profile with other recruiting teams in the ABB eMobility division. If you do not wish to be further considered for relevant job offerings, you can request the deletion of your candidate profile, see section “Data Retention”.

Furthermore, personal data may be processed on our behalf on the basis of contracts pursuant to Article 28 GDPR, especially by providers of systems for applicant management and selection procedures. We do not share data with third parties that have no reference to our application management and application procedures or other use cases we describe in section Use of personal data.

Such transfers may involve the transfer of personal data to recipients outside the European Union / European Economic Area. Standard contractual clauses have been concluded with these external service providers, unless they are based in countries with an adequacy decision pursuant to Art. 45 GDPR.

In the event of a legal obligation, we reserve the right to disclose information about you if we are required to surrender it to competent authorities or law enforcement bodies. The legal basis is Article 6 (1) c) GDPR.


The right to access – You can request information about your personal data (commonly known as data subject access request). You can also request copies of your personal data that we hold. We may charge you a small fee for this service.

The right to rectification – If you wish to correct or update the personal data provided to us, you can send us an email to join[at]

The right to erasure – You have the right to request that we erase your personal data, under certain conditions.

The right to restrict processing – Under certain conditions you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data, e.g. when you want us to verify the accuracy of your personal data.

The right to data portability – Under certain conditions you have the right to receive the personal data concerning you which you provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.

The right to object to processing – If we process your data to protect legitimate interests, you may object to such processing for reasons arising from your particular situation.

The right to withdraw your consent – You have the right to withdraw your given consent anytime.

Furthermore, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority concerning the processing of your personal data.


We retain your data for a period of 6 months after your last log in date in your profile. This is necessary for the burden of proof in the event of a legal claim based on the German General Equal Treatment Act (AGG). We further retain your personal data in that period in case there is a relevant job offering for which you will be a fitting candidate. In addition, you can request the deletion of your candidate profile or the withdrawal of your application by contacting our recruitment experts at join[at]

In case your application is successful we may store your personal data within the subsequent employment in compliance with the applicable legal regulations. More information can be found in the Data Privacy Statement for employees that we will provide to you on acceptance of the job.
