The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the US and stored there.

Only in exceptional cases the full IP address will be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

In addition or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can prevent tracking by Google Analytics on our pages by clicking this link. An opt-out cookie will be installed on your device. This will prevent the collection by Google Analytics for this website and for this browser in the future, as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.

Please note that you may not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not wish to record measurement data. If you have deleted all your cookies in the browser, you must set the respective opt-out cookie again.

7. RECARO Career Portal

To be able to accept and process applications quickly and efficiently, we use the RECARO Career Portal, which applicants can access on the internet. In the RECARO Career Portal applicants can create a profile and then apply for specific positions.

The processing of personal data for the candidate profile and for the specific application is limited to the necessary extent (marked as mandatory data) and serves to select suitable applicants as part of the decision to establish an employment relationship (legal basis is § 26 Federal Data Protection Act). The mandatory entries include: first name, last name, telephone number, e-mail, address, place of residence, country, nationality, curriculum vitae, whether you are currently employed by RECARO Aircraft Seating GmbH & Co. KG and how you found out about the position. 

In addition, applicants have the option of entering further information in the job portal in addition to the mandatory information. We also process this voluntary information exclusively within the framework of the decision to establish an employment relationship (legal basis is § 26 Federal Data Protection Act). 

Applicants may also decide whether their profile should only be visible for application for a specific position or whether the profile should be visible to all RECARO recruiters (the legal basis is consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR). Consent to visibility for all RECARO recruiters may be revoked at any time with future effect by adjusting the visibility settings in the RECARO Career Portal accordingly. The revocation of visibility has no effect on specific applications. 

We store your personal data within the scope of your concrete application for 180 days. You can delete your profile in the RECARO Career Portal at any time after you have logged in, or, if no application is active, it will be deleted automatically after 90 days of inactivity. 

For the operation of the RECARO Career Portal we have commissioned a service provider (SAP Deutschland SE & Co. KG), which we use as a processor.

When processing applications in the RECARO Career Portal, there is no automated decision making process.
