Native Instruments. Latest Version November 2018.
Thank you for your interest in our online job advertisement. Native Instruments attaches great importance to the protection of your personal data. We therefore inform you, in accordance with the relevant data protection regulations, in particular the GDPR (DS-GVO), about the collection, processing and use of your data within the scope of the online application.

Please read the following information and regulations carefully before submitting your data to us.

The following application data will therefore be collected and processed within the scope of the online application:

  • Salutation
  • First name
  • Surname
  • Street and house number
  • Postcode and city
  • Email address
  • Telephone/mobile number
  • Free field for application letters

In addition, technical information is automatically transmitted to us when you call up our pages from your web browser. This includes, for example, information about the browser you are using, information about the operating system, time and date of your visit and, if applicable, referrer URL. This information is used exclusively for statistical purposes and to design our Internet presence in line with requirements. You as a user remain anonymous.

It is not possible for us to combine this data with data from your online application.

In addition, we would like to point out that the data you provide may be used to compile statistics on the (online) application process. These statistics are compiled exclusively for our own purposes and are in no case personalized but in anonymous form.

Please note that your data is not protected by default during transmission on the Internet and can therefore theoretically be viewed and changed by unauthorized third parties. If a contract is concluded, the necessary data such as name, address, data for contract processing will be stored by us.

When submitting application documents, the applicant agrees that the data will be stored in accordance with the statutory provisions.

Native Instruments undertakes not to make the file accessible to any third party without the applicant's consent, unless it serves to defend against third-party claims in court proceedings and to delete it immediately after the proceedings have expired.

Retention period of application data
Your personal application data will be deleted automatically six months after completion of the application process. This does not apply if statutory provisions prevent deletion, if further storage is necessary for the purpose of presenting evidence, or if you have expressly agreed to longer storage.

Storage for future job advertisements
If we are unable to offer you a vacancy that is currently vacant, but believe, on the basis of your profile, that your application may be of interest for future vacancies, we will store your personal application data for a period of twelve months, subject to your express consent to such storage and use. With your consent, we will automatically compare your documents with the job advertisements and come back to you with a suitable offer.

Right to information
Upon written request, we will inform you in accordance with applicable law whether and which personal data we have stored about you.
