Data Protection

Thank you for visiting our website. We are pleased that you are interested in Deutsche Bahn (AG)* as a potential employer. The protection of personal data of applicants**, employees and all third parties connected with us is of particular importance to us.

When processing personal data, Deutsche Bahn takes account of the relevant statutory provisions on privacy and data security applicable in the respective countries, as well as of our internal privacy regulations.

This Privacy Notice provides information on how Deutsche Bahn deals with personal data collected through Deutsche Bahn’s job board web pages, or that you otherwise provide to Deutsche Bahn, due to your application, and explains the handling of your personal data in the course of the application process.

For better clarity, this privacy notice is divided into three sections: The first section A provides general information relevant for all subsidiaries of Deutsche Bahn which use these web pages for their application processes. Country and subsidiary specifics with regard to privacy are then explained in section B. Section C gives you further insights into technically relevant information.

Part A - General Information

1. Which purpose has the personal data collection?

Deutsche Bahn needs your personal data to handle your application. The data you have provided to us in line with your application will only be used and processed for the purpose of applicant selection. For the handling of your application we will only use the information that you have provided to us directly. This may include details that you have stored in online career networks or other job boards.

In addition, it is our goal to make the application process as easy as possible for you. We take your application into account for further positions within our subsidiaries. In this case, we might contact you and invite you to apply for another position if your profile matches. You then decide if you are interested in applying. The same applies for any speculative application that you might have provided to us.

2. Which personal data do we collect?

We record your personal data which is relevant for, or that you provide to us during, the application process (including, but not limited to last name, first name, address, email, position you applied for, and details on your application). To be able to consider your application thoroughly we might also need information on your previous professional career and other similar information.

In the case of a speculative application which does not refer to a concrete position, we also ask for your interests (e.g. with regard to location and job groups of interest) in order to consider you for other suitable jobs.

In the case of an online application you complete the personal data in the online forms and upload the relevant documents. In the case of other application channels, we record the relevant information from your application and store your application documents.

3. Who processes the information from your application?

Due to the organizational structure of Deutsche Bahn and depending on the method of application chosen by you, your application might be processed by different divisions. In all cases, your personal data will exclusively be processed by the unit that is responsible for recruiting and, if necessary, by service providers which are contractually bound and legally obliged to comply with the applicable privacy regulations.

In your online application for a specific job or to attend a recruitment event, you can, as an external applicant, actively agree to the disclosure of your personal data for other suitable jobs in the same or another group company (both nationally and internationally). If you do not agree or if you cancel your agreement, this means that the application will cease to be considered for other jobs. If you have applied by email or post, we will inform you in the acknowledgement of application that we would also like to check your application against other job offers in the same or another group company. In this regard, we will advise you to notify us if you do not agree to this. Prior to any disclosure of your personal data, we will contact you again to obtain your express consent. You may cancel your agreement to disclosure at any time, by email or post, at the address indicated in Clause 1. Cancelling your agreement to disclosure of the application means that the application will cease to be considered for other jobs.

4. Who is informed about your application?

Your personal data is treated strictly confidentially and will be provided only to the competent persons involved in the recruitment process and to subcontractors which might deliver necessary services during the selection process (e.g. online test suppliers). For more details on subcontractors on a country and subsidiary level please refer to section B.

Should you be considered for employment, the subsequent use or disclosure of your information is limited to general accepted employment-related purposes to those with a need to know. This includes information disclosed to internal or third party providers for required pre-employment check, verification and any legal or regulatory requirements.

If you apply online, we ask you to decide to which extent we are allowed to share your personal data:

  • In case you select “nationally”, your profile is visible to Personnel responsible for recruitment within the country in which the position is located or which you have selected as country of interest in the speculative application process.
  • In case you select “internationally”, your profile is visible to Personnel responsible for recruitment independent in which country they are located. This means that all responsible employees of all DB Group companies that use this platform for their recruitment purposes, including, if applicable, employees of their respective data processors, have access to your application/profile. You find out to which DB Group companies this actually applies if you turn to the overview of the attached local privacy policies (see Section B).


Within DB Group uniform minimum standards apply for dealing with personal data, according to our Global Privacy Policy.


In particular, it is inadmissible to use your application/profile for other purposes besides our recruitment processes, as described in our Privacy Policy. Nevertheless please note that due to the various locally applicable data protection regulations there are different levels of protection by the respective privacy regulation in the different countries.


If you applied using any other application channel besides online application, your personal data will only be shared in the country the job is located in.


You can revise your decision on the visibility of your application at any time, for instance you may decide to withdraw your decision to be visible internationally. If you want to do so, please refer to part B and the respective country and subsidiary specific section for the concrete email address.

5. How can you change your personal data?

In the case of an online application you can access and update your profile and personal information in the job board, including your personal data and added documents, at any time. Furthermore, it is possible to withdraw an application for a position via your profile. If you want us to delete your profile and/or some or all of your applications with immediate effect, please refer to part B for the respective email address to request the deletion. In this case we will also inform any subcontractor (e.g. for online tests) who might have received your personal data and request the instant deletion of your personal data.

6. When is your personal data deleted?

Due to different deletion periods based on the diverse applicable local data protection laws please refer to the relevant paragraph in part B for further details. We will only store your personal data as long as necessary.

You have questions about data privacy?

For question and suggestions around the privacy topic please address them to our contact persons in the respective country and subsidiary named in part B.

Part B – Additional Country and Subsidiary Specific Information

Germany - Application Procedure at Deutsche Bahn AG or a Group Company in Germany


If you apply for a job at Deutsche Bahn AG or one of its group companies in Germany (except DB Schenker AG), in addition to the general information in Parts A and C of the Privacy Statement, the following country-specific features are relevant for you.

1. Who is responsible for data collection and processing?

Deutsche Bahn AG, Recruitment Department, Europaplatz 1, 10557 Berlin, is the office responsible for collecting and processing your data.


The designated privacy officer is Ms Chris Newiger:


konzerndatenschutz@deutschebahn.com


If you have any questions to or suggestions on data protection issues relating to our recruitment, please contact us:

Stichwort Datenschutz

datenschutz-personalgewinnung@deutschebahn.com

2. On which legal basis and how do we collect your personal data for the purposes of a job application?

(Supplement to Part A item 1)


We collect your personal data for the purpose of handling your application on the legal basis of Art. 6 clause 1 (1) b), Art. 88 General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), para. 26 clause 1 (1) Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG). In the case of an online application for a specific job, an initiative application or to attend a recruitment event (cf. on this Clause 8.2 Event Portal), you enter your data into the appropriate online form yourself. For security reasons, we will send you a notice of confirmation after you have completed online registration. In the case of an email application, we enter all relevant data into our recruitment system and upload your documents including your email. Your email will subsequently be deleted from our mailbox. Where an application is made on paper, we scan your application documents and upload them into our recruitment system. Your original documents will be returned to you by post once the information has been entered.


Legal Basis for the data processing when using the Job Profiler (cf. on this Clause 8.4 Job Profiler) is Art. 6 clause 1 (1) f) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our legitimate interest is finding a suitable vocational training at Deutsche Bahn for you.

Pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, the legal basis for the proactive search for candidates (cf. Clause 6. Talent Sourcing) is provided by our overriding legitimate interest in making contact with people who may be interested in our job offers.

3. What data do we collect for the purposes of your application?

(Supplement to Part A item 2)


In relation to your application, we undertake only to use data which comes directly from you personally. This may also include data which you make available online for the purposes of the describing your professional career (e.g. in social networks). We will not undertake any additional research relating to you personally, e.g. by way of an internet search engine. Please feel free to notify us of further information relating to your professional career which is available online.


Where you make an online application, instead of entering your personal data manually or uploading a CV document, you can also transfer your profile from a social network (LinkedIn, XING, Seek, Viadeo).


If, during the application process, we ask you to state your gender by indicating how you wish to be addressed (Mr/Mrs/Ms), this is solely to ensure that we use the correct form of address when writing or speaking to you. The reason for entering your age or date of birth is that a statutory minimum age applies to some of our professions and jobs. Non-EU nationals require a work permit for Germany. We will therefore ask about your nationality during the application process.

4. Who processes the information contained in your application?

(Supplement to Part A item 3)


In your online application for a specific job or to attend a recruitment event, you can, as an external applicant, actively agree to the disclosure of your personal data for other suitable jobs in the same or another group company (both nationally and internationally). If you do not agree or if you cancel your agreement, this means that the application will cease to be considered for other jobs. If you have applied by email or post, we will inform you in the acknowledgement of application that we would also like to check your application against other job offers in the same or another group company. In this regard, we will advise you to notify us if you do not agree to this. Prior to any disclosure of your personal data, we will contact you again to obtain your express consent. You may cancel your agreement to disclosure at any time, by email or post, at the address indicated in Clause 1. If you retract your consent to share your application, the consequence is that your application will no longer be taken into account for other positions.


Where your application may be subject to examination by DB Zeitarbeit GmbH, the HR service provider for the Deutsche Bahn Group, we will in any case obtain your express consent prior to any disclosure of your data.


For the purposes of initial selection, we carry out a binding online test relating to the Induction Programme Vocational Training and Cooperative Education. In carrying out the online test procedure, we work with our contractually bound partner, eligo GmbH, Universitätsstrasse 142, 44799 Bochum. The invitation to the online test is sent by email to people who have applied for a job with us, by eligo GmbH acting on our behalf. The information necessary for the invitation and for carrying out the online test procedure (full name, gender, email address, job applied for, school leaving qualification), will be passed to eligo GmbH exclusively for this purpose.


For some jobs, a company medical and/or psychological aptitude examination is required. Following the examinations, our appointed service providers will inform us of the applicant's suitability/fitness for the job in question. We do not receive information about your personal examination results.


When selecting someone for a specific job, and throughout the recruitment process, your application documents will be shared with those responsible for recruitment in the relevant group company.

5. Stay in touch – DB Talent Pool

Apart from applying for a specific job, our career page also allows you, as an external applicant, to submit your profile and CV to the DB Talent Pool.


Where, following a personal meeting at a DB event or trade fair; after completing your internship with DB or after applying for a specific job, you would like to stay in touch with us for career guidance, we invite you to join the DB Talent Pool. In order to submit your data to the DB Talent Pool, go to our career page and enter your personal details under the heading "Stay in touch" in the same way as for an online application. We will also ask about your preferred region, field of work, starting date and availability. You can still actively decide whether we can only contact you for specific job offers or whether you would also like to receive information about DB events/trade fairs in your professional field and for career guidance.

6. Talent Sourcing

In order to attract staff, we actively search social networks, fora and other freely available internet resources for interesting candidate profiles. In the course of this proactive search for candidates, we only process data which has obviously been made public by the candidates themselves (name, profile, contact details where applicable).

We generally contact candidates via the messaging function of the relevant network. We offer candidates the opportunity to talk with us and find out more about Deutsche Bahn and about the job vacancies that would be relevant for them. Candidates may decide for themselves whether they then wish to apply for the job or for the DB Talent Pool via the portal or via a link provided by us. Before we enter your data into our DB Talent Pool, we will first ask for your consent to do so, and for your permission to approach you again. If you do not respond to our invitation to apply for a job vacancy or for the DB Talent Pool, your personal information will be deleted within four months at the latest.

7. When will your personal data be deleted?

(Supplement to Part A item 6)


In the context of an online application for a specific job or to attend a recruitment event, and when submitting your data to the DB Talent Pool, you can delete your data and the attachments (e.g. your CV) at any time yourself. In addition, you can ask us to delete your data. If you require the immediate deletion of your applicant profile, please contact the address indicated in Clause 1.


Our standard deletion period for an application is four months after the end of the application process (the applicant has either been hired or rejected) or after the end of a recruiting event.


If you have deleted or requested deletion of your data relating to an application for vocational training or a cooperative education programme, we will notify our partner for the obligatory online test, eligo GmbH, without delay, indicating that your data that is held by eligo GmbH must also be deleted. The standard deletion period at eligo GmbH is three months as from the last time the applicant accessed the online test.


If you have attended our assessment center for our cooperative education programmes or our graduate trainee programme, we will store your result for a maximum period of 12 months.


Your candidate profile (online user account) will be deleted automatically from our career portal four months after your last application has been deleted if you have not also logged in to the career portal since that deletion. If you have logged in without submitting an application, the deletion period of four month is as from your last log-in. In both cases, you will receive an e-mail 14 days before your candidate profile (online user account) is deleted, notifying you of the upcoming deletion. In this e-mail, you will also be informed that you can keep the account active and prevent deletion if you log in to your candidate profile (online user account).


If you have used the function "Stay in touch" and stored your profile and CV in the DB Talent Pool, we will notify you via e-mail if your candidate profile was last updated 6, 9, 12 or 15 months ago and request that you update your candidate profile. If you do not update your candidate profile, your data will be deleted completely at the latest after 18 months if your profile is not updated.

Where no consent to further processing is obtained from candidates under the Talent Sourcing process, their details will be deleted no later than six months after the start of the sourcing process.

8. Functions of the DB Career Portal

The functions of the DB Career Portal are described below.


8.1 Contacting us for the purposes of recruitment to Deutsche Bahn

On the career portal, we offer you the possibility of contacting us directly.

To do this, you can use the "Contact" menu item at the bottom of the website to call up an appropriate contact form. By filling out the individual form fields, your request will be sent directly by email to the Deutsche Bahn Career Team or our internal group service provider, DB Dialog. The fields marked "*" are mandatory fields, which we need in order to answer your inquiry. The personal data that you make available to us in the context of this inquiry will only be used to answer your inquiry and/or to contact you and for the associated technical administration. This data will not be used for any other purpose nor will data be shared with third parties. Your inquiry will be deleted after it has been processed, or at your request, but in any case after no more than 12 months.


8.2. Event Portal

On our career site, you have the option of searching in the Event Portal for recruitment events which may be of interest to you and you can apply to attend. Attending a recruitment event can result in a concrete job opportunity. If you already have access to the job board, you can use this to log into the Event Portal. If not, you can carry out a new registration in the Event Portal. In your online application to attend a recruitment event, you can, as an external applicant, actively agree to the disclosure of your personal data for other suitable jobs or events in the same or another group company (both nationally and internationally). If you do not agree or if you cancel your agreement, this means that your application will cease to be considered for other jobs and events.


8.3 Share a job with someone

On our job board and in the Event Portal, you have the option of sharing jobs or events with friends or acquaintances. If you want to share a job or an event, enter your name, email address and the email address of the recipient. Next, enter the subject and a message to the recipient. An email, containing your message and a link to the job advert, will then be generated automatically and sent to the recipient. The data entered in this regard will not be stored by us.


8.4 Job Profiler

With the help of the Job Profiler, we offer users a short test to find out which vocational training would suit them best. For this purpose, the personal data first name or pseudonym and the answers to the questions are collected by the user himself. In the test, different situations are described and the user has to decide whether he/she agrees or disagrees with the respective statement. On the basis of the user's input from the test, an individual list of suitable vocational trainings is generated. Personal user data, including the results, are at no time stored on the servers of Deutsche Bahn or an order data processor and made available to third parties. The user can enter a name at the beginning to address the user personally. It is not necessary to enter the correct name. The input has no influence on the results of the tests.


8.5 Chatbot


On the career portal we offer you the opportunity to get in touch with us even more directly. On many pages of the portal you will find an orange chat symbol at the bottom right of the screen. You can interact with our chatbot around the clock by clicking on the symbol. During office hours the chat can be handed over to colleagues of the career team if the chatbot does not have a suitable answer to your questions. If you have any questions regarding your specific application, please contact us using the contact form. If you have a question about your specific application in the chat, we also refer you to the contact form. We expressly ask you not to enter any personal information in the chat.


8.6 Job watch list with e-mail function


The career portal offers the possibility of placing jobs on a watch list. To do this, click on the star symbol in a job advertisement.

The job will then be saved in the local storage of the browser. By deleting the browser chess, the marked positions will be deleted.


If the user decides to send the watch list by e-mail, this is made possible with the help of a form. By entering an e-mail address, the watch list is sent to the specified recipient. The e-mail address is only used for sending via the mail server of Deutsche Bahn AG and is then deleted.
