The protection of your personal data during the entire application process is an important concern for us.

We, Export-Akademie Baden-Württemberg GmbH, are the responsible body in terms of data protection law. German data protection law applies.

Please read the following information carefully. By ticking the box next to the consent to the data protection declaration in your application form, you agree to the collection, processing and use of your personal data by our company as described here.

If you do not agree to the aforementioned data protection declaration, it is unfortunately not possible for you to apply to us.

If you have any questions or suggestions regarding data protection or the processing of your personal data, please contact the Managing Director Petra Lohmüller.



2) Personal data and purpose limitation

The subject of data protection is personal data (Art. 4 Nr. 2 DSGVO). This is individual information about personal or factual circumstances, such as name, address, e-mail address or telephone number, which you provide to us as part of the application process:

  • Personal master data (e.g. applicant name, address, date of birth)
  • Communication data (e.g. telephone, e-mail)
  • Data from the applicant’s CV (e.g. professional career, sideline activities, leisure activities)
  • References
  • Results of selection procedures (e.g. tests, interviews, role plays, presentations)
  • Process data (e.g. status, appointments)


Your personal data will only be stored and used electronically for the purpose of processing your application. If you receive an acceptance from us, we will of course need your data beyond the application phase. In this case, the data protection information for students applies.

5) Storage and deletion of data

The general statutory retention and deletion periods apply. We will delete your data in accordance with the relevant statutory provisions after completion of the respective application process.
