Privacy Policy eRecruiting

Please read this privacy policy carefully before you submit your application data! 

1. General Instructions

In order to apply for a specific position or to send a speculative application, it is necessary to register in our eRecruiting system.

In order to apply for a vacant position, the registration is done by clicking on the link "Apply now" which is found in the lower section of the job advertisement. Subsequently you will be asked to submit your e-mail address and to click on the button "next" to register.

In order to send a unsolicited application the registration is done by entering your e-mail address and clicking on the button "next" at the specified area of the unsolicited application.

This Privacy Policy eRecruiting applies as of 2015-01-15.

The privacy policy eRecruiting applies to the JOST-Werke (incl. subsidiaries and production sites) at the locations within the Federal Republic of Germany, hereinafter referred to as "JOST".

2. Privacy Policy for eRecruiting

JOST ensures the protection of the personal data of the applicant, which is made available to them. Below, we will make known to the applicant, how JOST will use his data. The personal data are stored, processed and used as part of the application in accordance with the following provisions and in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The applicant should therefore read this Privacy Policy eRecruiting carefully and then agree by placing the hook at "Privacy Policy eRecruiting read and accepted" after the applicant has understood the provisions of the eRecruiting.

3. Scope of this Privacy Policy

The data protection regulations apply to all personal data in the application that is sent by the applicant to JOST, as well as any other information that can be obtained by JOST from third parties as part of the application process, for example, information from previous employers, references, information from security companies, etc. JOST processes these personal data exclusively earmarked as part of the application and makes it available only with the same earmarking to external companies who are involved as a service provider in the application process.

4. How the application system functions

The applicant may apply through the online application system on the German-based job market JOST. Applications may relate to specific job postings, trainee vacancies, internships, thesis work or a position through the open applicant pool (unsolicited application). The application data is stored in the central database.

5. Data Use

The personal application data will be used by JOST to test the application to obtain references to confirm the details and to collect security and other background information, and ultimately be able to get in touch with the applicant. If the applicant is employed, the data of the applicant may also be transferred to the HR systems of JOST for personnel administration purposes.

6. Restriction of access to the applicant data

JOST informs the applicant that personal data from his native country can be transmitted around the world to other companies of JOST during the application process, as far as this is required in the context of the application (e.g. for application to international subsidiaries or under a unsolicited application). Some of these companies are located outside the European Union or outside the countries that ensure an adequate level of data protection by rating of the European Commission. Only the personnel staff of JOST and the supervisor and their confidante in the department have access to the data of the applicant. The personal data shall be used exclusively for JOST and not disclosed to third parties or sold. However, it is possible that the personal data of the applicant may also be given to the external service providers acting on our behalf that operate the eRecruiting system. JOST makes a written privacy policy agreement with the company in this case which ensures that the personal data is effectively protected and will not be used for unauthorized purposes. JOST monitors compliance with the agreements and shall at all times be responsible for the security of the data.

7. Data Management

After the applicant has provided the personal data and the application to JOST, this data can be changed by the applicants themselves. Thus, the data is automatically updated within the system. If the applicant wishes to obtain an extract of his/her information or wants to remove personal data from the database, he/she may contact JOST at the given address or send an e-mail to
