§ 3 Principles of data processing
Personal data is all information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, information such as your name, age, address, telephone number, date of birth, e-mail address, IP address or user behaviour. Information which we cannot relate to you personally (or can only relate to you with a disproportionate effort), e.g. by anonymizing the information, is not personal data. The processing of personal data (e.g. collection, retrieval, use, storage or transmission) always requires a legal basis or your consent. Processed personal data will be deleted as soon as the purpose of the processing has been achieved and there are no longer any statutory storage obligations to be met.
If we process your personal data for the provision of certain offers, we will inform you below about the concrete processes, the scope and purpose of the data processing, the legal basis for the processing and the respective storage period.
§ 4 Processing operations
1) Provision and use of the website
a) Type and scope of data processing
When you access and use our website, we collect the personal data that your browser automatically transmits to our server. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file.

c) Storage period
As soon as the aforementioned data is no longer required to display the website, it will be deleted. The collection of data to provide the website and the storage of data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility for the user to object. A further storage can take place in individual cases, if this is legally prescribed.

These cookies are required for technical reasons so that you can visit our website and use the functions offered by us. This refers, for example, to the Language setting. In addition, these cookies contribute to the safe and proper use of the website.

§ 7 Tracking and analysis tools
We use tracking and analysis tools to ensure continuous optimisation and design of our website to meet your needs. Tracking measures enable us to statistically record the use of our website by visitors and to further develop our online offering with the help of the knowledge gained. This is our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Below you will find a description of the analysis and tracking tools we use.
1. Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer to analyze the use of our website.
The information generated by these cookies, such as the time, place and frequency of your use of this website, is transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there. When Google Analytics is used, it cannot be ruled out that the cookies set by Google Analytics may collect other personal data in addition to the IP address. Please note that Google may transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.
The information generated by cookies will be used by Google on our behalf to evaluate your usage behavior, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services in connection with the website. According to Google, the IP address transmitted by your browser is not combined with other Google data.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent.
It cannot be excluded that the cookies set by Google Analytics may collect other personal data in addition to the IP address. In order to prevent Google Analytics from collecting information on your usage behaviour, you can download and install a plugin for your browser under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
This plugin prevents the transmission of information about your visit to Google Analytics. Any other analysis is not prevented by this plugin.
Please note that you cannot use the browser plug-in described above when visiting our website via the browser of a mobile device (smartphone or tablet). When using a mobile device, you can prevent Google Analytics from collecting your usage data by clicking on the following link: Deactivate Google Analytics.
This link sets a so-called opt-out cookie in your browser. This prevents information about your visit to the website from being transmitted to Google Analytics. Please note that the opt-out cookie is only valid for this browser and only for this domain. If you delete cookies in this browser, the opt-out cookie will also be deleted. To further prevent Google Analytics from collecting cookies, you must click on the link again. Opt-out cookies can also be used as an alternative to the plug-in described above when using the browser on your computer.
In order to guarantee the best possible protection of your personal data, we use the code “anonymizeIp”. This code deletes the last 8 bits of the IP address and thus anonymizes them (so-called IP masking). Your IP address will be anonymised by Google before it is transmitted within one of the member states of the European Union or in a state of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases the full IP address is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
§ 8 Hyperlinks
Our website contains so-called hyperlinks to websites of other providers. If you activate these hyperlinks, you will be redirected from our website directly to the websites of other providers. You will recognize this by the change of URL. We cannot accept any responsibility for the confidential handling of your data on these third-party websites, as we have no influence on whether these companies comply with the data protection regulations. Please inform yourself about the handling of your personal data by these companies directly on these websites.
§ 9 Application process
Type and scope of data processing
You have the possibility to send your application documents for a job advertisement or your unsolicited application to the e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org. The incoming application documents will be forwarded within WB to the persons responsible for the respective application and selection process. Your application documents will be processed exclusively for the purpose of the application process. Any further processing will not take place.
Your data will not be transmitted to persons outside WB. Your data will only be processed within the European Union or a state of the European Economic Area.
The provision of personal data in the application documents is neither required by law nor by contract. Without the provision of complete and meaningful application documents, however, the applicant cannot be considered.
An automated decision-making process including profiling in accordance with Art. 22 GDPR does not take place.
The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. According to this regulation the processing of personal data is lawful if it is necessary in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract.
For the storage of your application documents for a further 6 months after completion of the application procedure, the legal basis is our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest is that WB can defend itself against possible legal claims by rejected applicants.
If we wish to store your application documents beyond this period, we will obtain your express consent to do so. The legal basis for further processing in this case is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. The consent can be freely revoked at any time with effect for the future.
The application documents are stored for the duration of the application process. If there is no consent for further processing, the application documents will be deleted at the latest 6 months after completion of the application procedure.

When processing your personal data on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR if there are reasons which arise from your particular situation or if the objection is directed against direct advertising. In the case of direct marketing, you have a general right of objection, which is realized by us without stating a particular situation.
§ 12 Data security and security measures
We commit ourselves to protect your privacy and to treat your personal data confidentially. In order to avoid manipulation, loss or misuse of your data stored with us, we take extensive technical and organizational security precautions, which are regularly checked and adapted to technological progress. However, we would like to point out that it is possible that the rules of data protection and the above-mentioned security measures may not be observed by other persons or institutions outside our area of responsibility. In particular, unencrypted data can be read by third parties – e.g. if communication takes place via e-mail. We have no technical influence on this. It is the responsibility of the user to protect the data made available by him against misuse by encryption or in any other way.
