Additional processing during assignments/processes
When we provide recruitment services to you, we may process additional personal data, such as results from psychometric tests. Before any such processing is initiated, you will receive information on the processing of your personal data and, where and if applicable, provide your consent.
If you are employed as a consultant with us, you will receive information on the further processing of your personal data that will occur during and in connection with your employment.
Who do we share your personal data with?
To fulfill the purposes set forth above, we may need to share your personal data with our group companies, customers or suppliers when they perform services on our behalf, mainly to provide support and maintenance of IT systems and storage services. We are responsible for the processing of your personal data performed by such suppliers and they may only use personal data for the purposes specified by us.
When we use suppliers, it may entail that your personal data is transferred outside of EEA (a third country). Any such transfer is made in compliance with applicable data protection laws, which means that if the EU Commission has not decided that the third country ensures an adequate level of protection, the transfer will be based on the EU Commission’s standard contractual clauses or Privacy Shield (for transfers to the US).
Your personal data will also be shared with our customers in the case it is needed to fulfill our service to you, e.g. find a recruitment or staffing assignment for you at a customer. If we hand over your personal data to a customer, the customer is controller of your personal data after they have received if from us.
How long do we keep your personal data?
We will process your personal data as long as necessary taking into account why the personal data was collected. This means that different data may be kept for different time periods.
Your career account, and other personal data we process about you, will be deleted if you have not been active for 36 months (e.g. by logging in, updating your contact information, applying for jobs or contacting us through other channels). If you have been a final candidate for an assignment, some general information about you, as well as references and interview notes for the specific assignment, will be saved for 5 years after the specific assignment with our customer has been completed in order for us to fulfill all our obligations.
Information about e.g. test results can be saved for a shorter time if we no longer have reason to save them. You will get information on how long test results are stored when such data is collected.
