    Before making a final decision to recruit you, we may collect and process information relating to your criminal record in order to satisfy ourselves that there is nothing in your criminal convictions history which makes you unsuitable for the role.

    Purposes of Processing Your Personal Data

    Any personal data you provide to Wargaming will be used to process your application for the specific position you have applied for. In accordance with applicable law, your personal data may be retained and used to process your application for other open positions within Wargaming and its affiliates which may be suitable, unless you object to such processing in which case they will be deleted.

    The processing of your personal data is based on Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR. We need your personal data in order to conduct the recruitment process, and we will not be able to consider you for a job offer when you do not provide us with your personal data.

    Any processing of personal data from other sources is based on Article 6(f) of the GDPR.

    When we retain your personal data for other open positions, we do this based on Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR and in order to give you the possibility to work with us in the future, even though we are currently unable to offer you a position.

    We will delete your personal data as soon as it becomes clear that an offer of employment will not be made to you or is not accepted by you, unless we believe that you might be suitable for other future open positions and you have not objected to this, or unless we need to retain your personal data for the preparation, filing or defense of legal claims. If we retain your personal data for other open positions, we will not store your personal data for this purpose for longer than 3 (three) years.
