Information for applicants of Flink on the processing of personal data

Welcome to Flink! In the following, we would like to inform you about the data we process from you when you apply for an advertised position with us. Information on what data we collect from you when you visit our website can be found in our data protection declaration for our website.

1. Data controller and contact details of the data protection officer

We, Flink SE, are responsible for all processing of personal data. We are located at Brunnenstraße 19-21 in 10119 Berlin. You can contact us electronically at You can contact our data protection officer at


2. Data collection

During the application process we collect and process the following personal data from you:

  • Contact data (e.g. first and last name, address, country, e-mail, telephone number)
  • Information in your application (e.g. motivation, desired salary)
  • Application documents (e.g. CV, certificates, matriculation certificate, work permit)
  • Results of online procedures (e.g. personality tests, performance tests, video interviews)
  • Identity data (data to confirm your identity, e.g. your identity card)


3. Purposes and legal basis of data processing

We process all the data we collect from you in order to carry out the application process with you. The provision of your personal data is voluntary. However, the provision and processing of this data is necessary for the processing of your application or the conclusion of an employment contract with us.

The legal basis for the processing is therefore always the initiation or preparation of a contractual relationship with you. 


4. Recipient(s) of your personal data

The data we collect will only be passed on if you have given your express consent, the transfer is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in not having your data passed on, we are legally obliged to pass on your data or this is legally permissible and necessary for the processing of contractual relationships with you or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures which take place at your request.

Some of the data processing may be carried out by our service providers. These may include, in particular, data centres that store our website and databases, software providers, IT service providers that maintain our systems, agencies, market research companies, group companies and consulting companies. If we pass on personal data to our service providers, they may only use the data to fulfil their tasks. The service providers have been carefully selected and commissioned by us. They are contractually bound to our instructions, have suitable technical and organisational measures in place to protect the rights of the data subjects and are regularly monitored by us.

In addition, data may be disclosed in connection with official enquiries, court orders and legal proceedings if this is necessary for legal prosecution or enforcement.


5. Data transfer to third countries

In some cases, we use services whose providers are located in so-called third countries (outside the European Union or the European Economic Area) or process personal data there, i.e. countries whose level of data protection does not correspond to that of the European Union. Where this is the case and the European Commission has not issued an adequacy decision (Art. 45 GDPR) for these countries, we have taken appropriate precautions to ensure an adequate level of data protection for any data transfers. These include, among others, the so-called standard contractual clauses of the European Union or binding corporate rules.

Where this is not possible, we base the data transfer on exceptions of Art. 49 DSGVO, in particular the necessity of the transfer for the performance of the contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

6. Storage period

We store your personal data for a period of 6 months after completion of the application process. 

If your application is successful, your personal data relevant for the implementation of the employment relationship will be stored for the entire duration of your employment relationship. We will provide you with information about the processing of your personal data in the employment relationship when you accept the employment.

7. Your rights

If the legal requirements are met, you have the right to request information from us about which of your personal data we process. You may also request the rectification, erasure and/or restriction of the processing of your personal data and have the right to receive your personal data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.

If we process your personal data on the basis of overriding legitimate interests, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation. If it is a matter of objecting to the processing of data for direct marketing purposes, you have a general right of objection, which will also be implemented by us without giving reasons.

You have the right to revoke your consent at any time. This means that we will no longer process the data based on this consent in the future. The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.

If you believe that we are processing your data unlawfully, you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority. The supervisory authority responsible for us is the Berlin Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information, Friedrichstr. 219, 10969 Berlin.

Any enquiries regarding the assertion of data protection rights and our responses to them will be stored for documentation purposes for a period of up to three years and, in individual cases, for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims even longer. The legal basis for this is our interest in defending against any civil claims, avoiding fines and fulfilling our accountability obligations.
