Data protection information for the recruitment platform
Boehringer Ingelheim welcomes your interest in working for our group. Before you proceed with your application, we would like to briefly notify you of how we process and protect your personal data.
Please note: if you are applying for a position with a Boehringer Ingelheim company
(a) established in the European Economic Area , the European Notice applies additionally;
(b) established in the USA, the USA Notice applies additionally.
Please read this notice carefully and contact us should you have any questions(email@example.com). This platform is operated by Boehringer Ingelheim International GmbH, Binger Strasse 173, 55216 Ingelheim am Rhein.
Once you have submitted your application, you may voluntarily add your data to our global applicant pool. This will enable Boehringer Ingelheim to notify you of other interesting positions.
1. How we use your personal data
We handle your personal data in order to process your application, i.e. in order to assess your suitability for the position to be filled and to perform administrative tasks relating to your possible hiring. Any handling of your personal data for other purposes requires either your consent (e.g.entering them into the applicant pool, see Section 5) or must be permitted under applicable law. If you are already employed at a company of the Boehringer Ingelheim group, internal privacy regulations may also apply.
The term “personal data” refers to all data that can be attributed to you personally and that you have provided to us as part of your registration and application via this recruitment platform (i.e. your application and applicant profile).
2. Who has access to your personal data
Given Boehringer Ingelheim’s corporate structure, various group companies may receive your personal data in order to process your application:
- The company to which you are applying for a position
- Other group companies whose responsible departments or HR departments are involved in processing your application
- Boehringer Ingelheim International GmbH as the operator of this recruitment platform
- Technical service providers that process data under the supervision of Boehringer Ingelheim
Group-wide data processing: As a group with global operations, Boehringer Ingelheim group companies work closely together. Therefore, your application is processed by the responsible department and the HR department which usually does not only consist of employees of the company you are applying for. Because of this, employees of other group companies will also receive your data in order to process your application. In particular, the companies listed in the annual report belong to the Boehringer Ingelheim group, which can be found here.
Example: You are applying for a position at Boehringer Ingelheim Ltd. (UK). Members of the responsible department in the USA (Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc.) and – as a standard – the HR department in Germany (Boehringer Ingelheim Pharma GmbH & Co. KG) are involved in handling your application. As a result, employees from all three companies receive and process your personal data.
If you are hired, your data is transferred from the recruitment platform to the HR administration system of the respective Boehringer Ingelheim company with which your employment relationship is formally established.
Service providers: Service providers commissioned to assist with the application process (e.g. with technical support for this recruitment platform) are carefully selected. In order to ensure that your data is handled confidentially and securely, contracts with service providers contain provisions that safeguard your data and service providers are monitored regularly to ensure compliance with these provisions.
Additionally and to the extent required by mandatory law, governmental entities may access your data to examine our practices and for other lawful purposes
Data processing for applications outside of the European Economic Area: If your residence is located in the European Economic Area and you are applying to a company established outside of this area (e.g. in China or the USA) for a position, please note that the use of your data by this group company is not subject to European data protection regulations, and as such, a different level of protection may apply.
3. Your access to your data and deletion of your data
At any time, you can inspect, edit or delete the data that you uploaded as well as your applicant profile. Please note that any changes made to your profile may have an impact on your current applications. You may withdraw your application at any time. Your applicant profile and your application are deleted in accordance with applicable law.
4. Security of your data
We consider the security of your personal data a top priority. Accordingly, while no set of privacy and security standards or safeguards is 100% secure, any information that you share with us is kept secure and strictly confidential in accordance with this information. We take reasonable precautions to protect personal data from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.
5. European notice
If you are applying for a position with a company established in the European Economic Area, the following additionally applies:
Sensitive data: Please do not save any sensitive data in the recruitment platform. This particularly includes data regarding your health, religion, membership in a labour union or political party, or sex life.
Data use by companies domiciled outside of the European Economic Area: If you are applying for a position with a company established in the European Economic Area (e.g. in Germany) and your data is also processed by a group company outside of the European Economic Area (e.g. in the USA), we implement measures to ensure an adequate level of protection in compliance with European data protection regulations.
6. USA notice
If you are applying for a position with a company established in the USA, the following additionally applies
With regard to Section 3, please note, that also in cases of withdrawing your application or editing/deleting your profile we may retain the information you provided, as well as the changes and deletions to that information as part of our normal business practices and recordkeeping such for purposes of U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity reporting. In the event that we delete your applicant profile or your application, we will carry that out in accordance with applicable law.
7. Inclusion of your application in the global applicant pool
After submitting your application, you will have the option to release your applicant profile for the applicant pool, allowing us to consider you for additional open positions at group companies. If you choose to do so, employees from all the HR and responsible departments within the Boehringer Ingelheim group will be able to access your profile according to this data protection notice and to contact you (cf. Section 2).
If you no longer wish to be included in the applicant pool, you can revoke your consent at any time, particularly by sending an email to or by deleting your applicant profile. This revocation has no impact on any of your direct applications.
It is our intention to only notify you of positions at Boehringer Ingelheim that may be of interest to you. As such, we kindly ask you to regularly update your applicant profile.
I acknowledge that the notice on data protection in the recruitment platform was made available to me and I wish to continue.
