The Personal Data will be stored for the duration of the selection procedure and up to a year after its finalisation, in order to handle complaints, if any.
We take the necessary administrative, technical and organisational measures to ensure an appropriate security level for our Personal Data and to protect these against destruction, loss, change or unauthorized provision or unauthorized access, either accidentally or unlawfully.
