As providor of a web based recruitment solution we will act as data processor on behalft of our customers which are the responsible. Our customers are the companies to which you apply for a position. For more information about how they process your personal data we refer to their privacy policies.
2.2 Vilect as data processor
We will in connection with conducting our business also act as data processors for our customers. This applies inter alia in the following instances:
a) When you submit a job application for a specific position in a certain company
b) When you submit an open application for a certain company
Pursuant to the data protection regulation, our customer, i.e. the company in which you have applied for a position, will be the controller. This means that it is this company that is the one responsible for the processing of your personal data in relation to the application processes described in letter (a) and (b) above. For the sake of clarity, please note that Vilect still may be the controller of the personal data processed for the purposes described in section 3 below.
Where we act as data processors we enter into a data processing agreement with the company that is responsible for the processing of your personal data. The data processing agreement outlines the framework for how we can process your personal data.
3. Why we process personal data and the categories of personal data
We collect and use your personal data for different purposes depending on who you are and how we come into contact with you. Below is an overview of which personal data we collect and process, and what the personal data is used for.
a) Managing your user access
In order to provide you with access to our system and manage your user access, including facilitating for communication with potential employers, we must process certain personal data regarding you. The personal data that will be processed are typically your contact details, such as name and email address.
Our basis of processing is our agreement with you regarding giving you access to our recruitment system so that you can submit job applications.
We will delete your user account if you are not associated with a recruitment process within six months after your previous log-in or since the last completed process you have been involved in, unless you have consented to your user account being kept active for an additional six months. We will also delete your user account if you request it. You may also delete your account yourself. If the account is deleted, all pertaining personal data will be deleted, including your job applications.
b) Provide user support and continuous support
We will help you should you need support in connection with the use of our recruitment system. We will also provide continuous support in the job seeking process, such as for example sending you a reminder to complete your application, or notify you if the application is incomplete or there are errors and therefore cannot be submitted.
The personal data that will be processed is your contact info, such as name and email address. We will be able to communicate with you directly in the system, or through email.
Our basis for processing is our legitimate interest in being able to help you throughout the job seeking process.
c) Handling open job applications
If you use our recruitment solution to send an open job application without the potential employer being predetermined or known, we will keep your application for you until it is connected to one or several potential employers through you becoming part of their recruitment process. An example is if you have an open application associated with a department store. In this instance all shops that are tenants in the department store will be your potential employer, and the company you are applying for a position with.
The personal data we collect and process are inter alia information that transpires from your CV, application letter, your diploma and any other references, pictures and videos.
Our basis for processing is your consent. You can at any time withdraw your consent by deleting your application or your user account. You can also send an email to email@example.com.
d) Administrating our recruitment solution
In order to administrate our recruitment solution, including ensuring sufficient security, we will process certain personal data regarding you.
We log information regarding traffic and user patterns, including your IP-address, for 30 days. After 30 days the log is deleted automatically.
The basis for our processing is our legitimate interest in ensuring administration and optimal running of our systems.
e) Optimising and further developing our recruitment solution
For this purpose we use Google Analytics to analyse the use of our website. Google Analytics is an analysis service delivered by Google, Inc. («Google»). Information of your use of the website is sent to Google and is stored on servers in USA. Google is regarded as our data processor.
This intends that personal data will be transferred to a country with a regulation that does not ensure the same level of protection of personal data as the regulation in Norway. In order to secure your personal data and ensure your privacy, Google is part of Privacy Shield a solution approved under the data protection regulation.
We might also use submitted job applications in anonymised form in order to optimise and further develop our recruitment solution. The fact that the job applications are anonymised means that we cannot identify you.
The basis for processing is our legitimate interest in being able to optimise and further develop our system.
f) Other processing of personal data
4. Transfer of personal data to third parties
4.1 Use of data processors
Occasionally we use data processors to collect, store or in other ways process personal data on our behalf. These will typically be suppliers within operations, maintanance and other technical solutions. Our data processors will only gain access to the personal data necessary in order for the data processor to be able to deliver their services to us.
In order to secure your rights we have entered into a data processor agreement with all of our data processors, which means that your personal data cannot be used for other purposes than those agreed with you.
4.2 Other third parties
We will not disclose your personal data to other third parties unless there is a legal basis for such disclosure. Examples of a legal basis are if we have explicit consent from you, if the disclosure is necessary for legitimate interests pursued by us or because we are required by law to share the data. In the event a third party is located outside the EU/EEA, the disclosure will only take place in accordance with the applicable data protection regulation, including GDPR.
5. Deletion of the personal data
We will delete personal data in accordance with the applicable data protection legislation. This means that we will not store personal data any longer than what is necessary to fulfil the purpose of the processing.
This means that if we e.g. base our processing on your consent, we will delete the data if you withdraw your consent. If the processing is based on our legitimate interest, we will delete the data when the legitimate interest no longer exists.
In the case of open job applications we will delete your application in the event that you have not been associated with a recruitment process for six months, unless you have consented to it being stored for an additional six months. Consent can be withdrawn by deleting the job application or by deleted your user account. You can also send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
