Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data that we process in an automated manner based on your consent or for the purpose of fulfilling a contract in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, or to have such data transmitted to a third party. Insofar as you request the direct transmission of your data to another controller, this will only be effected to the extent that it is technically feasible.

SSL and TLS encryption

This website uses SSL and TLS encryption for reasons of security and to protect the transfer of confidential content such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the website operator.

4. Data collection on our website


Some web pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any harm to your computer and contain no viruses. Cookies help us to enhance your user experience and to make our offering more effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are saved to your computer and stored in your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies will be stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser the next time you visit our site.

You can configure your browser in such a way that you are informed when cookies are set, and you are able to choose whether to accept them in each individual case only, or whether to reject cookies in specific cases or generally, as well as choose to delete cookies when you close your browser. The functionality of our website may be restricted if you choose to deactivate cookies.

Cookies that are required to perform the process of electronic communication or to provide specific functions that you request (e.g. the shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies to ensure the technically sound and optimised provision of its services. Any other cookies (e.g. cookies used to analyse your surfing behaviour) that are stored are listed separately in this data privacy policy.

Server log files

The provider of the website automatically collects and stores data in so-called server log files that your browser automatically transfers to us. These are:

Browser type and browser version
Operating system used
Referrer URL
Host name of the accessing computer
Time of server request
IP address
These data are not combined with data from other sources.
The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the performance of a contract or for entering into a contract.

Contact form

If you use our contact form to request information, we will store the details from the request form, including the contact details you provide there, to process the request and to answer any follow-up queries. We will not pass these data on without your consent.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time. It is sufficient to send us an informal e-mail for this purpose. The lawfulness of the data processing operations carried out until the withdrawal will remain unaffected by the withdrawal.

We will retain the data you enter in the contact form until you request us to delete it, withdraw your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your enquiry). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

Information on the application procedure

Processing purpose/legal basis:
Performance of the application procedure for the fulfilment of a contract or the establishment of a contract of employment or for the placement of work with a client company.

We use an electronic system for applicant management, which enables us to offer you suitable professional assignments in a targeted manner. We receive your application via this electronic system and it is available to our locations throughout Germany. We create applicant profiles based on the data you provide, which we then make available to our clients seeking to cover their staffing needs with our help.

Data involved:
We store and process your personal data for this purpose insofar as and as long as this is necessary for us to provide our services. This concerns your last name, your first name, your contact details and your complete address at a minimum. Furthermore, we require all the information that is usually found in a CV in order to provide a successful service; where applicable, any additional data will be processed on the basis of your explicit consent.

Categories of recipients:
Public bodies in cases where legal provisions take precedence.

External service providers or other contractors, including data processing and hosting companies.

Other external bodies to the extent that the data subject has given their consent or a transfer is permissible for reasons of compelling interest (e.g. clients and interested parties as potential employers).

Data storage:
Your applicant profile will be stored in our applicant pool. This will also occur when you submit your application for a specific position and actively confirm admission to the applicant pool in the system. Your consent to data processing and to these terms of use constitutes your permission for us to consider you for the advertised position and to inform you about other current vacancies at wu personal GmbH.

Application data are generally deleted after the application process has been completed, unless consent has been given for data to be stored for a longer period as part of admission to the applicant pool.

Automated decision-making:
No automated decision-making or rejection in the sense of Art. 22 GDPR takes place, i.e. the decision about your application is not based exclusively on automated processing.
