If you register with a candidate profile in our recruiting portal (also possible without actively applying), we will process your data in order to offer you additional services of your choice. This is done on the basis of the user contract accepted by you in accordance with Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR.
If you have applied for a specific position and would also like to be seen by all recruiters of the Lidl Group or within your country of origin, you can choose this setting at any time in “Search options and data protection notice “ in your profile or when you create a profile you can select "Visibility for all recruiters in the Lidl Group" or "Visibility for all recruiters in my country of origin". The recruiters of all companies may then view the data in your profile in accordance with your consent in order to suggest positions that suit you. If there is a suitable position, we will contact you by e-mail and invite you to apply for this position.
If you select the option "Visibility for all recruiters worldwide", you consent to your profile being visible to all recruiters and, where applicable, managers of all Lidl national organizations as well as Lidl Stiftung & Co. KG and Lidl Digital International GmbH & Co. KG across all Lidl countries.
If you select "Visibility for all recruiters within my country of origin", you consent to your profile being visible to all recruiters and, where applicable, managers of the Lidl national organization in your country of origin.
These two options mean that your profile data will be transferred to other Lidl organisations in the relevant countries you choose and all responsible employees have access to your profile. If you have selected one of these options, you will be considered for later vacancies once the application process has ended.
Note: If data is transmitted to a Lidl company that is headquartered in non-EU/ non-EEA countries ("third countries"), the data protection level in this third country may be lower compared to that in the EU/ EEA, which may mean that the rights of data subjects may not be enforced at all or not in the same way. If we transfer personal data to data recipients outside the EU/ EEA, the transfer will only take place if an adequate level of data protection in the third country has been confirmed by the EU Commission, an appropriate level of data protection has been agreed with the data recipient (e.g. by means of EU standard contractual clauses) or you have given us your express consent.
Withdrawal of consent
You can revoke your consent to the worldwide or national visibility of your profile at any time with effect for the future. The legality of the processing that has already taken place up until the receipt of your withdrawal is not affected by this. In your profile, you can adjust the setting at any time in "Data protection and search options". Please note that this setting applies to all of your submitted and still active applications. Only the recruiting teams responsible for the respective positions for which you have an active application can then access your job-related data. Besides these specific positions, we can no longer consider you without an application for other positions.
If you select the visibility option “Only the recruiting team responsible for the position”, only the recruiters and managers responsible for filling the position can see your profile in accordance with Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR. Your data will not be forwarded for other suitable positions. Your profile will not be included in Talent Relationship Management for other materials or activities related to working at Lidl.
