Data privacy in Festo Jobworld

The protection of your personal data is very important to us. We should therefore like to inform you of our data privacy principles and processes for the exploitation of the personal data you submit in your application via Festo’s Jobworld Online.


Principles regarding the use and exploitation of your personal data
Festo processes and uses your personal information solely in connection with our Jobworld Online, in order to fill vacancies within the Festo Group and our affiliates. We use your data as part of the application process in order to keep you informed of offers and personnel marketing activities. We will not forward your personal data to third parties.


With our Jobworld Online, you can apply directly for advertised posts. Unsolicited applications are not possible. Instead, you can register with the “Talent Pool” in our Jobworld Online with your user name and password and can update your profile at any time. Whenever required, we match our open positions with the shared profiles in the “Talent Pool” and can hopefully provide you with appropriate offers within the Festo Group or one of our affiliates.
You have the opportunity to view, delete, show or hide your data at any time.


We treat personal data with absolute confidentiality. Surveys, and the transmission of personal data to government institutions and authorities, are carried out only insofar as required by law. Our employees at the Festo Group and those of our affiliates are bound to confidentiality and are required to maintain data secrecy in accordance with § 5 BDSG.


All personal data that you provide us (CV, certificates, proof of qualification, photo, desired position, etc.) are stored in your application.


Data security
Festo uses technical and organisational security measures to protect your data managed by us. Our security measures are constantly updated.


Your personal data are transmitted via the Internet and stored on the e-recruiting servers. Festo obligates itself to adhere to the above-mentioned points in relation to data protection.

I declare that my data is current and truthful.


Furthermore, I hereby declare my consent to the storage and processing of my personal data for the purpose of registration.
