persons using the Service ("Users”) feel safe with, and are informed
about, how we handle User's personal data in the recruitment process. We strive
to maintain the highest possible standard regarding the protection of personal
data. We process, manage, use, and protect User's personal data in accordance
We are the controller in accordance with current privacy
legislation. The Users’ personal data is processed with the purpose of managing
and facilitating recruitment of employees to our business.

collect with regards to the Service.

The categories of personal data that can be collected through the Service can be used to identify natural persons from names, e-mails, pictures and videos, information from Facebook and LinkedIn-accounts, answers to questions asked through the recruiting, titles, education and other information that the User or others have provided through the Service. Only data that is relevant for the recruitment process is collected and processed.
Purpose and lawfulness of processing
The purpose of the collecting and processing of personal data is
to manage recruiting. The lawfulness of the processing of personal data is our
legitimate interest to simplify and facilitate recruitment.

The User consents to the personal data being processed according to the below sections “Storage and transfer” and “How long the personal data will be processed”.
The User has the right to withdraw his or her consent at any time, by contacting Controller using the contact details listed under 9. Using this right may however, mean that the User can not apply for a specific job or otherwise use the Service.
Storage and transfers
The personal data collected through the Service is stored and processed inside the EU/EEA, or such third country that is considered by the European Commission to have an adequate level of protection, or processed by such suppliers that have entered into such binding agreements that fully comply with the lawfulness of third country transfers (such as Privacy Shield) or to other suppliers where adequate safeguards are in place to protect the rights of the data subjects whose data is transferred. To obtain documentation regarding such adequate safeguards, contact us using the Contact details listed in 9.
How long the personal data will be processed
If a User does not object, in writing, to the processing of their personal data, the personal data will be stored and processed by us as long as we deem it necessary with regards to the purposes stated above. Note that an applicant (User) may be of interest for future recruitment and for this purpose we may store Users’ Personal Data until such User is no longer of value as a potential recruit. If you as a User wish not to have your Personal Data processed for this purpose (future recruitment) please contact us using the contact details in paragraph 9.

processed personal data which belongs to them without any charge. For further
demanded copies, Controller has a right to charge a reasonable fee on the basis
of the administrative costs for such demand.
Users have the right to, if necessary, rectification of
inaccurate personal data concerning that User, via a written request, using the
contact details in paragraph 9 below.
The User has the right to demand deletion or restriction of
processing, and the right to object to processing based on legitimate interest
under certain circumstances.
The User has the right to revoke any consent to processing that
has been given by the User to Controller. Using this right may however, mean
that the User can not apply for a specific job or otherwise use the Service.
The User has under certain circumstances a right to data
portability, which means a right to get the personal data and transfer these to
another controller as long as this does not negatively affect the rights and
freedoms of others.
User has the right to lodge a complaint to the supervisory
authority regarding the processing of personal data relating to him or her, if
the User considers that the processing of personal data infringes the legal
framework of privacy law.
We prioritize the personal integrity and therefore work actively
so that the personal data of the Users are processed with utmost care. We take such
measures as can be reasonably expected to make sure that the personal data of
Users and others are processed safely and in accordance with this Privacy
Policy and the GDPR-regulation.
However, transfers of information over the internet and mobile
networks can never occur without any risk, so all transfers are made on the own
risk of the person transferring the data. It is important that Users also take
responsibility to ensure that their data is protected. It is the responsibility
of the User that their login information is kept secret.
5. Transfer of personal data to third party

- authorities or legal advisors in case criminal or improper behaviour is suspected; and
- authorities, legal advisors or other actors, if required by us according to law or as directed by any applicable authority.

internet browser on the User’s device, such as their computer, mobile phone or
