§ 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.

§ 8 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: 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.

Legal basis

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.

Storage period

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.
