Any transfer of candidates' personal data to our contractual partners who assist us with the recruitment of new candidates is based on our legitimate interests.

What purposes do we process your data for?

Processing your personal data enables us to facilitate activity as an employment agent and provide related services, which include, but are not limited to, the response to your employment application and correspondence between you and your potential employers during the recruitment process. We further process personal data for marketing and statistical purposes.

Personal data is collected to facilitate an effective recruitment process for applicants and clients when assessing your skills, experience, qualifications, and suitability for both existing and future jobs that may be of interest to you. In particular, we assess whether you are suitable for the job as a candidate and that your education, experience and language skills meet the requirements of the listing, and whether the remuneration is in line with your expectations.

Our website allows you to submit attachments with your application to a specific position. You submit these attachments on a voluntary basis, and the personal data contained in the attachments will be processed only for the purposes of assessing your suitability, as the candidate, for the position.

Your profile on our website allows you to link your job application with your social networking accounts (such as LinkedIn, Facebook). If you choose to provide a link to your social network account, we may process not only this link but also the data on your accounts, but only in connection with our activity as an employment agent.

Where do we get your personal data from?

We receive the majority of personal data that we process directly from you. Sometimes we also receive your personal data from third parties, e.g. from job applicant portals or from your previous employers, in cases when you have provided us with their contact information.

How long do we store your data for?

We only process personal data for the period of time that is necessary for the purpose for which we are processing it. Assuming you do not delete your profile or terminate your contractual relationship with us, we process your personal data for 5 years. When we find that your data is no longer necessary for any of the purposes for which it was processed, we discard it.

Who is your personal data transferred to?

Due to the fact that we process your personal data specifically for the purpose of our activities as an employment agent and to provide related services, we transfer your data to employers looking for employees to fill position listings. Personal data processed as per this information sheet may further be provided to authorized state authorities, institutions or other entities when the conditions specified by legal regulation are met. Should it be necessary to fulfill the purpose of processing personal data necessary for the performance of our legal obligations or our contractual obligations, should this be necessary to protect our legitimate interests, or should it follow from your consent, we may transfer your personal data to external suppliers, who support us during the recruitment process.

What are your rights?

You have the right to request information about your personal data and access it. You further have the right to ask us to correct or delete your personal data or to limit its processing. You may also object to the processing of your personal data or request the portability of the data.
