  1. The purpose and the legal basis for processing personal data

The personal data are used for executing all the actions related to job applications and recruiting.

Personal data is processed based on a consent (where data subject gives their approval for the processing of their personal data for a predefined, specific purpose).

  1. The contents of the data file

The register may contain the following information about the data subject and their organisation:

  • Basic personal data such as name, address, email, telephone number

  1. The data sources

The personal data are always collected directly from the data subject.

We do not conduct automated decision-making and profiling with the personal data processing activities included in this privacy notice.

  1. Disclosures and transfers of personal data

Personal data is not regularly disclosed outside the controller.

However, we may disclose data within our group companies, meaning that another company within our group of enterprises may process the data on our behalf. That processing is based on our legitimate interest for transfer personal data for the administrative purposes within our group, such as reporting and effective operations.

We may also disclose some essential data to those third parties who act as our service providers or subcontractors e.g. for ensuring deliveries, organising events. or for billing, marketing and customer management. We used trusted partners on the basis of a mutual partnership agreement. These transfers will be carried out securely in accordance with EU GDPR and other legislative requirements.

Data is not transferred outside the EU or ETA by the controller except when our subcompany located in the USA is processing personal data on our behalf. In those cases, the adequacy of data protection is ensured by the Binding Corporate Rules (BCR) within our group of enterprises.

  1. Storage and protection of personal data

The personal data are stored only as long as necessary for the purposes stated in this privacy notice, no longer than one (1) year from the last active transaction between the data subject and the controller. The data will be erased once storing them is not anymore necessary according to legislation or to ensure the rights or responsibilities of either party.

We take all appropriate measures (including physical, technical and administrative measures) to protect personal data from being lost, destroyed, misused, unlawfully accessed or disclosed to third parties. Only the personnel, who need the data in their work, have access to the personal data stored in the data file. Data is mainly stored only in electronic form and personal usernames and passwords are required for accessing the systems containing personal data. Any physical material is stored in locked premises.

  1. Rights of the data subject

All data subjects have the right to review all data on them in the data file and request to change possible inaccurate, incomplete or outdated data. Recipients of marketing messages may anytime leave the mailing list by acting as advised in the message. The data subject has at any time the right to withdraw previously given specific consent for processing the data. The data subject also has the right to request the erasure of their personal data from the data file providing that they are no more needed for the purpose they were collected for or that there are no legal obligations in effect concerning the controller regarding the processing or storing them. Furthermore, the data subject may request the controller to transmit their data to another controller when the personal data was provided by them. The data subject has in certain cases the right to request the controller to restrict the processing of personal data concerning them or to object to the processing of their personal data. The data subject can at any time make a complaint to authorities regarding the processing of their personal data.

Any requests related to these rights must be sent in writing to the controller’s contact person, who can then request the data subject to visit the controller’s premises to provide personal identification and possible mandate or other documentation confirming the rightful access to the request. The access request can be made free of charge once a year.
