Privacy policy

thyssenkrupp is committed to protecting the personal information of applicants, employees and all third parties connected with us in any other way.
thyssenkrupp uses personal data collected from visitors to our websites in accordance with the data protection and data security laws of the Federal Republic of Germany. Insofar as personal data are transmitted to Group subsidiaries outside Germany, the data protection laws of the country in which your data are “processed” also apply. Should we transmit your data in a country in which your data is subject to less comprehensive protection under local laws, our Group data protection principles will ensure the highest standard of protection for your personal data. You can therefore be sure that we are committed to protecting your privacy and your right to data protection at all times. This privacy policy provides information on how thyssenkrupp uses information collected when you visit the careers section of the thyssenkrupp AG website.

1. Purpose of collecting data
thyssenkrupp generally uses your personal data to answer your inquiries, process your requests or allow you access to specific information or offers. For this reason you will also find information on data protection on the websites of the Group subsidiaries. But thyssenkrupp would also like to make your job search easier. On the following pages you can therefore apply directly for jobs at Group subsidiaries online. We promise to treat your information confidentially. The data you enter here will be processed and used only for the purpose of selecting job applicants.

2. Which data do we collect?
On the following pages we collect the information needed for application procedures at thyssenkrupp.
When you apply for a job with a Group subsidiary, you will be asked to provide certain personal details (name, address, e-mail). You may also be asked questions relating to the position you are applying for. When applying for work with our company it is also essential that you attach your résumé.

Please note that your data are not stored anonymously but are accessible to the HR department and the departments of the Group subsidiary relevant to the position you have applied for.

3. Cookies

4. IP addresses
Within the framework of the statutory provisions, we store Internet Protocol addresses (IP addresses) in log files for a strictly limited period only, insofar as this is necessary for technical and security purposes. We compile anonymous statistics to record the number of visitors to our website (traffic), but we do not create individual user profiles or link these to information which may be used to identify an individual. We subsequently delete this information.

5. Application information
In submitting your application you promise that the information provided by you is truthful. Please note that false statements and omissions can constitute grounds for rejection or subsequent dismissal.

We do not require any information from you which cannot be used under Germany’s General Equal Treatment Law (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz).

  • Illnesses
  • Pregnancy
  • Ethnic origin, political beliefs, philosophical or religious beliefs, trade union membership, physical or mental health or sexual activity

The data collected by thyssenkrupp are processed exclusively by Group service providers bound by contract. Personal data are disclosed only to the extent and for the purpose specified in the contract in accordance with the data protection laws to agencies which, for example, operate our servers or perform specific services.

7. With whom do we share your personal data?
The information you submit to us is treated confidentially and disclosed only within the relevant Group subsidiary to persons involved in a concrete application process. Your personal data will be disclosed to other Group subsidiaries only with your separate and explicit consent. Please note the information on this provided on the website.

8. Access right, processing and deleting of your résumé:
You can view, edit and delete your résumé at any time. You can also ask us to help you with this.
Please understand that for legal reasons it is not possible to edit or delete data during an ongoing application process and for a period of around three months after completion of an application process.

9. Data security
To protect our data we use state-of-the-art data protection measures in line with the current statutory provisions on data protection (incl. firewalls, virus scanners, intrusion detection software). Nevertheless, we recommend that you make back-up copies of all documents of importance to you.
Please note that under some employment contracts it is not permitted to use the internet for private purposes during working hours or using your workplace computer.
