Privacy policy for applicants

Compliance with data protection regulations is a high priority for our company. We would like to inform you below about the collection and processing of your personal data as part of the application process:


Responsible for the data processing described below is wpd windmanager GmbH & Co. KG and the seeking company of the wpd windmanager Group named in the job advertisement.

Data processing for the purposes of the APPLICATION PROCESS

You have the opportunity to apply for the positions we advertise or to send us an unsolicited application via our application portal. As part of the application process, we require the information from you that is marked as mandatory fields in our application form. The legal basis for the processing of this data is Section 26 (1) sentence 1 BDSG, as the data is required for the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship. Data processing for other purposes does not take place.

In addition, you can decide for yourself whether you wish to provide us with further information that is not marked as mandatory in the application portal. The provision of this data is voluntary and is not mandatory for the application. If you provide us with your personal data voluntarily, we process this data on the basis of your consent, which can be revoked at any time, in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR in conjunction with Art. 26 para. 2 BDSG. § 26 para. 2 BDSG. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future.

Data transmission within the wpd windmanager group

If you are not hired, but your application may be of interest to another company in the Group and you have given us your consent to do so, we will forward your application documents to the respective company. This is done on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S.1 lit. a GDPR i.V.m. § 26 para. 2 BDSG. We do not transfer your data to organisations outside the EU or the EEA.

Confidential treatment of your data

Your details will be treated confidentially in our company. Your data will not be passed on unless you have expressly consented to it being passed on within the group of companies. If an employment contract is concluded after the application process, we will store the data from your application that is required for the fulfilment of your employment relationship. The legal basis for this processing is § 26 para. 1 sentence 1 BDSG.

External service providers strictly bound by instructions may be used for data processing. The obligatory contracts for order processing in accordance with Art. 28 para. 3 GDPR are always concluded with these service providers. We also regularly audit the service providers we use. As a rule, your data will not be transferred to other organisations outside the EU or the EEA.

Contact via WhatsApp

If you use our application-per-WhatsApp function, the legal basis for the communication is your voluntary consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 a GDPR, which can be revoked at any time. In the case of an application per WhatsApp, all necessary applicant information is requested via a WhatsApp chat and processed by us as part of and for the purpose of the normal application process. The application-per-WhatsApp function is provided to us by wpd GmbH as a strictly instruction-bound processor. In turn, wpd GmbH uses the IT service provider PitchYou GmbH as part of the order fulfilment. Further information can be found at

Data deletion

If your application is unsuccessful, your documents will be deleted after six months. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. Processing until deletion is in our legitimate interest in being able to defend ourselves against any legal action relating to the application. We only process the personal data that you provide to us as part of the application process.

Your data protection rights

As a data subject, you have the right to information about the personal data concerning you (Art. 15 GDPR) and to rectification of incorrect data (Art. 16 GDPR) or to erasure if one of the reasons stated in Art. 17 GDPR applies, e.g. if the data is no longer required for the purposes pursued. There is also the right to restriction of processing if one of the conditions specified in Art. 18 GDPR applies and, in the cases of Art. 20 GDPR, the right to data portability.

Furthermore, as a data subject, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of the data concerning you violates data protection regulations. The right to lodge a complaint may be exercised in particular with a supervisory authority in the Member State of the data subject’s habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement.
