I. Purpose of data collection

The purpose of the collection of personal data in the Database is to support the recruiting process.

II. What information do we collect?

We collect several types of information:

  1. CV and personal data: If you allow for the registration of your CV in our Database, this comprises the following details: a) a description of your work experience, skills and education b) contact information with which you as an individual can be identified, e.g. your name, address, e-mail, and telephone ("Personal Data") c) you have the option to attach certain qualifying documents to your CV, for example your motivation letter or certificates in electronic format.
    If you have already participated at an interview with us, we may also store a short assessment in this Database. This shall of course not contain defamatory or slanderous information, and shall solely contain information which has a reasonable relation to the assessment and hiring process or your job profile.
  2. Statistics: The CV data might be also used for pseudonym statistics. This information is aggregated. No individual user of the Database can be identified from this information. We may also use IP addresses for the purpose of general and anonymous statistics showing e.g. the amount of visitors, page impressions or similar information, however, we shall not create individual user profiles from such information.
  3. Cookies: We're using session cookies
  4. Logfiles: If you go on the Database, the server environment you used for that visit can be tracked by an internet protocol address. We store such internet protocol addresses (IP adresses) in their logfiles for data safety reasons. We shall in no case use the information drawn from these logfiles for the identification of the users of the Database except for the sole purpose to fight potentially illegal or criminal server attacks which are directed against your data or against the functionality of the Database.

III. With whom do we share your data?

All your data can be accessed by the HR department and the hiring line managers. We will not disclose this collected information to anyone else under any circumstances.

IV. Who is processing your data?

Personal Data is stored in the software service powered by Avature, in the European Union. The Avature servers are maintained and housed by Avature. In as far as we or Avature wish to use the services of further third parties for the technical maintenance, administration or processing of data, we or Avature, as the case may be, shall be entitled to forward your data to these parties to the extent that is required to ensure smooth and secure technical handling of your Personal Data. We and Avature (in its capacity as a data processor) shall be in compliance with the provisions of the EU Directive 95/46 EC and any applicable data protection laws in the EU.

V. Viewing, editing, updating or deletion of your data:

You can always view the data stored in the Database at any given time. You can further edit, update or delete any such data at any given time. Additionally, if you wish to view, edit, update or delete your CV or data in the database, our HR department will be pleased to do this for you on request.

VI. Data Safety

We use a variety of methods, such as firewalls, intrusion detection software and manual security procedures, to secure your data against loss or damage and to help protect the accuracy and security of your Personal Data and to prevent unauthorized access or improper use. Please be aware that the transfer of your data via the internet into and out of the Database is only protected by SSL encryption if the key symbol on your button browser line is figured as locked and if the address starts with httpS://www----. Data transfer is then protected via the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) process in connection with a 128 – Bit encryption which prevents third parties to illegally read your data. If this option is not active you might want to choose to not send certain data over the internet.
