Our legal basis for processing your data
Processing is necessary to concluding an employment contract
Based on Art. 6 paragraph 1 b of the GDPR, we may process your personal data if the processing is necessary to conclude an employment contract. Where necessary, we will ask you for permission to process personal data.
Based on Art. 6 paragraph 1 f of the GDPR, we may process your data if it is "necessary for the legitimate interests of the controller or of a third party, except where the interests or the fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data outweigh those interests, etc."
However, you have the right to object to our processing of your personal data on this basis. In that case, please contact us.
We believe that it is reasonable to expect you to agree that we may collect your information and use your personal data to provide you with our job opportunities.
In certain circumstances, we are required to obtain your consent to process your personal data in relation to certain activities. Depending on exactly what we do with your information, this consent will be op-in consent or soft op-in consent.
Art. 4 (11) of the GDPR states that (opt-in) consent means: "any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous expression of will by which the data subject accepts, by way of declaration or unambiguous active act, processing of personal data concerning him." In plain language, this means that:
- You must give us your consent freely, without us putting any pressure on you;
- You need to know what you are agreeing to - so we make sure we give you enough information;
- You should have control over the processing activities for which you consent and the processing activities for which you do not consent; and
- You must give your consent through a clear active action - You can do this by ticking a check box, so this requirement is met in a clear and unambiguous way.
We will maintain a record of the consent you have given in this way.
We have already mentioned that in some cases we may rely on soft opt-in consent. We are permitted to offer you products or services related to the recruitment services we provide as long as you do not actively opt-out of these messages.
Right to withdraw consent
Where we have obtained your consent to process your personal data for certain activities, you may withdraw this consent at any time, at which point we will cease the activity for which you have given consent, unless we consider that there is a legal basis to justify continued processing of your data for this purpose. In such a situation, we will inform you of the applicable condition.
Formulating, conducting or defending criminal proceedings
It may sometimes be necessary for us to process personal data and, where appropriate and in accordance with local laws and regulations, sensitive personal data in connection with the conduct or defence of criminal proceedings. Art. 9 para 2f of the GDPR permits this where the processing is "necessary for the establishment, exercise or substantiation of legal claims or where courts are acting within the scope of their jurisdiction."
