Datapolitikken er inddelt i et kortfattet afsnit "ved første blik" og et længere afsnit.

TEMPORARY WORKER DATA: If we employ or engage you as a Temporary Worker directly, we will, depending on the relevant circumstances and applicable local laws and requirements, collect some or all of the information listed below (in addition to the data collected about Candidates) in order to ensure that our Temp Relationship runs smoothly and that we are able to comply with our contractual and other duties to each other, and to our Clients, as part of our Temp Relationship and our duties to third parties such as tax authorities and government agencies. In some jurisdictions, we are restricted from processing some of the data outlined below. In such cases, we will only process the data in those jurisdictions to the extent and under the circumstances permitted by law.

  • Staff number/other identifier;
  • Location of your employment or workplace at the Client;
  • Trade union membership;
  • Details of any grievance or disciplinary matters, whether brought by or against you or in which you are or have been otherwise involved;

Please note that the above list of categories of personal data we collect is not exhaustive.

A number of elements of the items listed above are required to enable us to fulfil our contractual duties to you or to others.

Other items may simply be needed to ensure that our Temp Relationship can run smoothly, or to run our business.

Depending on the type of personal data in question and the grounds on which we may be processing it, should you decline to provide us with such data, we may not be able to fulfil our contractual requirements or, in extreme cases, may not be able to continue with our  Temp Relationship.

***

CLIENT DATA: The data we collect about Clients is actually very limited. We generally only need to have your contact details or the details of individual contacts at your organisation (such as their names, telephone numbers and email addresses) to enable us to ensure that we can reach out to you about our services, ensure our relationship runs smoothly and in certain circumstances, provide services to your employees. We also hold information relating to your online engagement with Candidate profiles and other material published by Hays, which we use to ensure that our marketing communications to you are relevant and timely. We may also hold extra information that someone in your organisation has chosen to tell us. In certain circumstances, such as when you engage with our Finance and Debt Recovery teams, our calls with you may be recorded, depending on the applicable local laws and requirements. If we need any additional personal data for any reason, we will let you know.

To the extent that you access our website or click through any links in an email from us, we will also collect certain data from you. If you would like more information about this, please click here.

SUPPLIER DATA: We don't collect much data about Suppliers – we simply need to make sure that our relationship runs smoothly. We'll collect the details for our contacts within your organisation, such as names, telephone numbers and email addresses. We'll also collect bank details, so that we can pay you. We may also hold extra information that someone in your organisation has chosen to tell us. In certain circumstances, such as when you engage with our Finance and Debt Recovery teams, our calls with you may be recorded, depending on the applicable local laws and requirements.

***

PEOPLE WHOSE DATA WE RECEIVE FROM CANDIDATES AND STAFF, SUCH AS REFEREES, EMERGENCY CONTACTS AND DEPENDANTS: All we need from referees is confirmation of what you already know about our Candidate or prospective member of Staff, so that they can secure that job they really want. Emergency contact details give us somebody to call on in an emergency. To ask for a reference, we'll obviously need the referee's contact details (such as name, email address and telephone number). We'll also need these details if our Candidate or a member of our Staff has put you down as their emergency contact so that we can contact you in the event of an accident or an emergency.

We will collect your date of birth, contact details and potentially some health information if a member of our Staff has put you down as a dependant or any other kind of beneficiary for a benefit connected with their employment or if a member of our Staff exercises certain employment rights. We may also be provided (by inference) with some limited information about your sexual orientation if a member of our Staff identifies you as a spouse or partner when putting you down as a dependant, next of kin or emergency contact.

Below are some more details about each of these methods.

Personal data you give to us

This information will enable us to operate a usual Temp Relationship, along with all that entails.

There are numerous ways that you can share your information with us in addition to the information you share as a Candidate. Where appropriate and in accordance with any local laws and requirements, these may include:

HOW DO WE USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

Having obtained data about you, we then use it in a number of ways.

CANDIDATE DATA: We generally use Candidate data in five ways:

In appropriate circumstances, we also use Candidate data for Profiling.

Here are some more details about each:

Recruitment Activities

Obviously, our main area of work is recruitment – connecting the right Candidates with the right jobs. We've listed below various ways in which we will use and process your personal data for this purpose, where appropriate and in accordance with any local laws and requirements. Please note that this list is not exhaustive.

  • Collecting your data from you and other sources, such as LinkedIn;
  • Storing your details (and updating them when necessary) on our database, so that we can contact you in relation to recruitment;
  • Providing you with our recruitment services and to facilitate the recruitment process;
  • Assessing data about you against vacancies which we think may be suitable for you;
  • Sending your information to Clients, in order to apply for jobs or to assess your eligibility for jobs;
  • Enabling you to submit your CV, apply online for jobs or to subscribe to alerts about jobs we think may be of interest to you;
  • Allowing you to participate in specialist online training;
  • Allowing you to participate in the interactive features of our services, when you choose to do so;
  • Carrying out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between us;
  • Carrying out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between Hays and third parties in relation to your recruitment;
  • Facilitating our payroll and invoicing processes;
  • Carrying out customer satisfaction surveys;
  • Verifying details you have provided or to request information (such as references, qualifications and potentially any criminal convictions, to the extent that this is appropriate and in accordance with local laws);
  • Complying with our legal obligations in connection with the detection of crime or the collection of taxes or duties;
  • Processing your data to enable us to send you targeted, relevant marketing materials or other communications which we think are likely to be of interest to you; and
  • Carrying out assessment and development activities (such as psychometric evaluations or skills tests) in certain of the jurisdictions in which we operate - For more information in relation to your jurisdiction, please click here.

We will use your personal data for the above purposes if we deem it necessary to do so for our legitimate interests. If you want to know more about what this means, please click here. If you are not happy about this, in certain circumstances you have the right to object and can find out more about how and when to do this here.

Please note that in certain of the jurisdictions in which we operate, we comply with additional local law requirements. For more information in relation to your jurisdiction, please click here.

Marketing Activities

We will periodically send you information that we think you may find interesting, or to ask for your help with connecting other Candidates with jobs. In particular, we will  use your data for the purposes listed below, where appropriate and in accordance with any local laws and requirements. Please note that this list is not exhaustive. To:

  • enable us to develop and market other products and services;
  • market our full range of recruitment services (permanent, temporary, contract, outplacement, MSP programmes and RPO services) to you;
  • send you details of reports, promotions, offers, networking and client events, and general information about the industry sectors which we think might be of interest to you;
  • display promotional excerpts from your details on Hays' website(s) as a success story (only where we have obtained your express consent to do so); and
  • provide you with information about certain discounts and offers that you are eligible for by virtue of your relationship with Hays.

We need your consent for some aspects of these activities (in particular, the collection of data via cookies, and the delivery of direct marketing of our services to you through digital channels) and, depending on the situation, we'll ask for this via an opt-in (where we cannot rely on the legitimate interests condition) or soft-opt-in (which we explain further below). Please note that in certain of the jurisdictions in which we operate, we comply with additional local law requirements. For more information in relation to your jurisdiction, please click here.

Soft opt-in consent is a specific type of consent which applies where we have obtained your contact details from an occasion when you previously engaged with us (for example by submitting a job application or CV, or registering a vacancy to be filled), and we are e-marketing other recruitment-related services of our own. Under ‘soft opt-in’ consent, we will take your consent as given unless or until you object or opt out (and we will remind you of your right to do this and provide you with the opportunity to opt-out, in each e-marketing message that we send to you). For most people, this is beneficial as it allows us to provide you with information that we think will be of interest to you and suggest other jobs to you alongside the specific one you applied for, significantly increasing the likelihood of us finding you a new position. We will use your personal data to send you e-marketing materials with your ‘soft opt-in’ consent if we deem that it is in our legitimate interests to do so.

For other types of e-marketing, we are required to obtain your explicit consent. If you want to know more about how we obtain consent, please click here. If you are not happy about our approach to marketing, you have the right to opt out or withdraw your consent at any time and can find out more about how to do so here. Nobody's perfect, even though we try to be. We want to let you know that even if you have opted out from our marketing communications through our preference centre, it is possible that your details may be recaptured through public sources in an unconnected marketing campaign. We will try to make sure this doesn't happen, but if it does, we're sorry. We'd just ask that in those circumstances you opt out again.

All our marketing is based on what we think will serve our Clients and Candidates best, but we know we won’t always get it right for everyone. We will use your data to show you Hays adverts and other content on other websites, for example Facebook. If you do not want us to use your data in this way, please turn off the “Advertising Cookies” option (please refer to our Cookies Policy). Even where you have turned off advertising cookies, it is still possible that you may see a Hays advert, but in this case it won’t have been targeted at you personally, but rather at an anonymous audience.

Equal opportunities monitoring and other sensitive personal data

We are committed to ensuring that our recruitment processes are aligned with our approach to equal opportunities. Some of the data we will (in appropriate circumstances and in accordance with local law and requirements) collect about you comes under the umbrella of "diversity information". This could be information about your ethnic background, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation, religion or other similar beliefs, and/or social-economic background. This diversity information is what is called ‘sensitive’ or ‘special category’ personal information and slightly stricter data protection rules apply to it.

Where appropriate and in accordance with local laws and requirements, we'll use this information on an anonymised basis to monitor our compliance with our equal opportunities policy. We will also disclose this (suitably anonymised where relevant) data to Clients (including to their internal or external auditors) where this is contractually required or the Client specifically requests such information to enable them to comply with their own employment processes.

We will collect other sensitive/special category personal data about you such as health-related information or religious affiliation if this is appropriate in accordance with local laws. In such circumstances we'll use this information to comply with employment rights and obligations, such as to calculate entitlement to annual leave or in order to make reasonable adjustments for Candidates  or Temporary Workers. If you would like to know more about the legal basis under which we process this "sensitive" or special category personal information, please click here.

We may also collect details of any criminal convictions if appropriate in accordance with local laws which may require your consent.  

If you would like to find out more about consent, please click here.  If you are not happy about this, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time and you can find out how to do so here.

Please note that in certain of the jurisdictions in which we operate, different rules apply to this sensitive/special category data. For more information in relation to your jurisdiction, please click here.

To help us to establish, exercise or defend legal claims

In more unusual circumstances, we will use your personal data to help us to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.

Profiling

Profiling is a type of processing activity which involves our use of information that we collect about you in order to build a "profile" about you. This helps us to get a better idea of what you're like and your interests, likes and dislikes, all of which enable us to provide the best possible service to you.

Here's how we use profiling:

A.Personalisation

We want to ensure we communicate with you in the best way possible, and to optimise the information we provide to you through our services, website and online presence. In order to do this, we use profiling methods which involve analysing your personal data in order to better understand you and your interests, habits and preferences. (An example of how we might do this is that when you click on something on our website, we take note of this as perhaps an indication of what you are interested in looking at.) We use profiling methods to place you and your Candidate profile into groups or segments with other Candidates, based on your interests, habits, attributes and/or preferences so that we can:

send you personalised emails (which, for example, might reflect what we think are your preferences);

make recommendations for editorial content that we think may be of interest to you (e.g. reports about developments in your industry);

send you tailored or more relevant marketing communications (the contents of which may, for example, reflect how you have responded to or interacted with previous marketing communications from us).

B.Shortlisting and ranking

We may use profiling methods which involve the analysis of your personal data, and/or placing you and your Candidate profile into groups or segments based on your interests, habits, attributes and/or preferences, in order help our consultants make decisions. For example, we might run your personal data through our systems to work out as efficiently as possible how suitable you might be for a vacancy. This helps us to optimise the matching of Candidate profiles to roles, and improves the effectiveness and efficiency of the recruitment cycle.

More specifically, we may use these profiling methods so that we can:

  • place you and other suitable Candidates on shortlists for particular roles based on prescribed criteria, which will allow our consultants to identify the most appropriate Candidates for roles more efficiently; and
  • recommend roles to you based on how your interests, habits, attributes and/or preferences, ranked in comparison to other Candidates.

We will use profiling methods in relation to your personal data if we deem this to be necessary for our legitimate interests. If you would like to know more about what this means, please click here. If you are not happy about this, in certain circumstances you have the right to object and can find out more about how and when to do this here.

C.Automated Decision Making

As new and better technology becomes available we will use it to help you as efficiently and as effectively as possible.

We use automated or artificially intelligent systems, which may include systems provided by third parties, to analyse data we have about you and other Candidates and make decisions about you based on this data. This includes applying machine learning to Candidate personal data in order to help us come up with the best possible shortlist for a particular role. Such technology should reduce significantly the amount of time needed to consider when candidates might be the best fit for relevant jobs. This should in turn make the recruitment process much more efficient and effective, which, we hope, will improve your overall experience with us.

We use automated decision making in relation to your personal data where we deem this to be necessary for the completion of pre-contractual steps taken at your request. If you would like to know more about what this means, please click here.

Please note that in certain of the jurisdictions in which we operate, we comply with additional local law requirements. For more information in relation to your jurisdiction, please click here.

***

PROSPECTIVE CANDIDATE DATA: We use Prospective Candidate data to work out whether you might be interested in, or might benefit from, our services, and to assess whether and how we might be able to assist you. If we think we can help, we will use your contact details to get in touch with you and find out if you are interested in our services (usually via email), subject to any applicable laws and requirements.

In order for us to do this, we may:

  • Collect your personal data;
  • Store your details (and update them when necessary) on our database so that we can contact you about our services;
  • Review your information to work out whether and how our services might help you; and
  • Contact you about our services.

***

TEMPORARY WORKER DATA

If we employ or engage you as a Temporary Worker directly, we collect your data in five principal ways:

  • To ensure the smooth running of our Temp Relationship, including all of the activities that need to be undertaken in a usual relationship of that type, such as:
    • facilitating payroll and invoicing processes, if relevant to your jurisdiction;
    • determining the terms on which you work during your Temp Relationship;
    • keeping a record of any promotions, salary rises or bonuses you are awarded;
  • Assessing your performance;
  • Where appropriate, through Equal Opportunities Monitoring;  
  • To help us to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; and
  • To help us to help you and to understand our legal obligations if you suffer from a health condition or disability.

Some more detailed information about the way in which your data is processed under the last three categories can be found in the Recruits Privacy Policy. For example, during the on-boarding process with Hays, Temporary Workers will be treated in a similar way as recruits for Hays roles and their personal data during the recruitment process for such roles will be processed in the ways described in the Recruits Privacy Policy (https://www.hayscareer.net/datenschutz).  Depending on the applicable local laws, we appreciate that you are not a 'Recruit' in the sense of that Policy but given that we use the data in a similar way, for the same purposes, we thought you wouldn’t mind having a quick look at that policy if you were interested in a greater level of detail.

The question of whether and the extent to which the Recruits Privacy Policy and the Staff Privacy Policy apply to you as a Temporary Worker depends on local law requirements. For more information in relation to your jurisdiction, please click here.

If you were put down by a Candidate or prospective Staff member as a referee, we will contact you to get a reference or give your details to a third party to do this on our behalf. Where you are being asked to give a reference based on their professional experience of a Candidate, and where we think that you may be interested in becoming a Client of ours, we may also use your details to reach out to get in touch in that alternative capacity (subject to any local laws and requirements).

We will use your personal data for these purposes if we deem this to be necessary for our legitimate interests or in accordance with applicable employment law. If you would like to find out more about what this means, please click here.

HOW DO WE SAFEGUARD YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

We are committed to taking all reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the personal information that we hold from misuse, loss, or unauthorised access. We do this by having in place a range of appropriate technical and organisational measures. These include measures to deal with any suspected data breach.

If you suspect any misuse or loss of or unauthorised access to your personal information please let us know immediately. Details of how to contact us can be found here.

 

HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR?

If you are a Client or a Supplier we will retain your personal data in order to provide you with services or to receive services from you, or to provide you with information about our services that we believe you may be interested in. If you have expressly indicated that you're not interested in our services, then we will Delete your personal data from our Systems unless we believe in good faith that the law or other regulation requires us to preserve it (for example, because of our obligations to tax authorities or in connection with any anticipated litigation).

If you are a Prospective Candidate  or a Candidate, we will Delete your personal data from our Systems if we have not had any meaningful contact with you (or, where appropriate, the company you are working for or with) for two years (or for such longer period as we believe in good faith that the law or relevant regulators require us to preserve your data). After this period, it is likely your data will no longer be relevant for the purposes for which it was collected.

As with Clients and Suppliers, if you have expressly indicated as a Prospective Candidate or a Candidate that you would rather we didn't retain your personal data, then we will Delete it from our Systems unless we believe in good faith that the law or other regulation requires us to preserve it (for example, because of our obligations to tax authorities or in connection with any anticipated litigation).

For those Candidates whose services are provided via a third party company or other entity, "meaningful contact" with you means meaningful contact with the company or entity which supplies your services. Where we are notified by such company or entity that it no longer has that relationship with you, we will retain your data for no longer than two years from that point or, if later, for the period of two years from the point we subsequently have meaningful contact directly with you.

When we refer to "meaningful contact", we mean, for example, communication between us (either verbal or written), or where you are actively engaging with our online services.

If you are a Prospective Candidate, we will consider there to be meaningful contact with you when we first contact you in relation to our services. If you are a Candidate we will consider there to be meaningful contact with you if you submit your updated CV onto our website or take part in any of our online training. We will also consider it meaningful contact if you communicate with us about potential roles, either by verbal or written communication or click through from any of our marketing communications. Your receipt, opening or reading of an email or other digital message from us will not count as meaningful contact – this will only occur in cases where you click-through or reply directly.

If we employ or engage you as a Temporary Worker directly, we will ordinarily process your data throughout the course of your Temp Relationship and will then retain it for a period after we have parted ways. The precise length of time will depend on the type of data, our legitimate business needs and other legal or regulatory rules that may require us to retain it for certain minimum periods.  For example, we may be required to retain certain data for the purposes of tax reporting or responding to tax queries. We may also retain it if it might be relevant to any potential litigation.  In jurisdictions that allow it, we will generally retain personal data relating to you where necessary to enable us to provide you or a future employer with a reference.

In determining the appropriate retention period for different types of personal data, we always consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data in question, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of that personal data, the purposes for which we need to process it and whether we can achieve those purposes by other means (in addition of course to ensuring that we comply with our legal, regulatory and risk-management obligations, as described above). For the avoidance of doubt, if you are a Temporary Worker, we will also continue to process your personal data as a Candidate through the duration of your Temp Relationship and thereafter. The question of whether and the extent to which we will continue to process your personal data as Staff data through the duration of your Temp Relationship and thereafter depends on local law requirements. For more information in relation to your jurisdiction please click here.

If you are a Website User we will retain your IP address and any other information that is necessary to operate the website or our mobile apps for 84 [FG1] days. Otherwise we will retain any other data for as long as it is necessary to achieve the purpose it was collected or processed for. If this time has come or you have expressly indicated that you’re not interested in one of our website or mobile app services anymore, we will Delete it from our Systems unless we believe in good faith that the law or other regulation requires us to preserve it (for example, because of our obligations to tax authorities or in connection with any anticipated litigation) or other legal exceptions apply.

HOW CAN YOU ACCESS, AMEND OR TAKE BACK THE PERSONAL DATA THAT YOU HAVE GIVEN TO US?

One of the GDPR's main objectives is to protect and clarify the rights of EU citizens and individuals in the EU with regards to data privacy. This means that you retain various rights in respect of your data, even once you have given it to us. These are described in more detail below.

To get in touch about these rights, please contact us. We will seek to deal with your request without undue delay, and in any event within one month (subject to any extensions to which we are lawfully entitled). Please note that we will, where necessary, keep a record of your communications to help us resolve any issues which you raise.

Right to object: this right enables you to object to us processing your personal data where we do so for one of the following four reasons: (i) our legitimate interests; (ii) to enable us to perform a task in the public interest or exercise official authority; (iii) to send you direct marketing materials; and (iv) for scientific, historical, research, or statistical purposes.

The "legitimate interests" and "direct marketing" categories above are the ones most likely to apply to our Website Users, Candidates, Temporary Workers, Clients and Suppliers. If your objection relates to us processing your personal data because we deem it necessary for your legitimate interests, we must act on your objection by ceasing the activity in question unless:

  • we can show that we have compelling legitimate grounds for processing which overrides your interests; or
  • we are processing your data for the establishment, exercise or defence of a legal claim.

If your objection relates to direct marketing, we must act on your objection by ceasing this activity.

Right to withdraw consent: Where we have obtained your consent to process your personal data for certain activities (for example, in order to use cookies in certain jurisdictions), you may withdraw this consent at any time and we will cease to carry out the particular activity that you previously consented to unless we consider that there is an alternative reason to justify our continued processing of your data for this purpose in which case we will inform you of this condition.

Data Subject Access Requests (DSAR): You may ask us to confirm what information we hold about you at any time, and request us to modify, update or Delete such information. We may ask you to verify your identity and for more information about your request. If we provide you with access to the information we hold about you, we will not charge you for this unless your request is "manifestly unfounded or excessive". If you request further copies of this information from us, we may charge you a reasonable administrative cost where legally permissible. Where we are legally permitted to do so, we may refuse your request. If we refuse your request we will always tell you the reasons for doing so.

Please note that in certain of the jurisdictions in which we operate, we comply with additional local law requirements regarding data subject access requests and may refuse your request in accordance with such laws. For more information in relation to your jurisdiction, please click here.

Right to erasure: You have the right to request that we erase your personal data in certain circumstances. Normally, the information must meet one of the following criteria:

  • the data are no longer necessary for the purpose for which we originally collected and/or processed them;
  • where previously given, you have withdrawn your consent to us processing your data, and there is no other valid reason for us to continue processing;
  • the data has been processed unlawfully (i.e. in a manner which does not comply with the GDPR);
  • it is necessary for the data to be erased in order for us to comply with our legal obligations as a data controller; or
  • if we process the data because we believe it necessary to do so for our legitimate interests, you object to the processing and we are unable to demonstrate overriding legitimate grounds for our continued processing.

Please note that in certain of the jurisdictions in which we operate, we comply with additional local law requirements regarding data subject right to erasure and may refuse your request in accordance with local laws. For more information in relation to your jurisdiction, please click here.

We would only be entitled to refuse to comply with your request for one of the following reasons:

  • to exercise the right of freedom of expression and information;
  • to comply with legal obligations or for the performance of a public interest task or exercise of official authority;
  • for public health reasons in the public interest;
  • for archival, research or statistical purposes; or
  • to exercise or defend a legal claim.

When complying with a valid request for the erasure of data we will Delete the relevant data.

Right to restrict processing: You have the right to request that we restrict our processing of your personal data in certain circumstances. This means that we can only continue to store your data and will not be able to carry out any further processing activities with it until either: (i) one of the circumstances listed below is resolved; (ii) you consent; or (iii) further processing is necessary for either the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, the protection of the rights of another individual, or reasons of important EU or Member State public interest.

The circumstances in which you are entitled to request that we restrict the processing of your personal data are:

  • where you dispute the accuracy of the personal data that we are processing about you. In this case, our processing of your personal data will be restricted for the period during which the accuracy of the data is verified;
  • where you object to our processing of your personal data for our legitimate interests. Here, you can request that the data be restricted while we verify our grounds for processing your personal data;
  • where our processing of your data is unlawful, but you would prefer us to restrict our processing of it rather than erasing it; and
  • where we have no further need to process your personal data but you require the data to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims.

If we have shared your personal data with third parties, we will notify them about the restricted processing unless this is impossible or involves disproportionate effort. We will, of course, notify you before lifting any restriction on processing your personal data.

Right to rectification: You also have the right to request that we rectify any inaccurate or incomplete personal data that we hold about you. If we have shared this personal data with third parties, we will notify them about the rectification unless this is impossible or involves disproportionate effort. Where appropriate, we will also tell you which third parties we have disclosed the inaccurate or incomplete personal data to. Where we think that it is reasonable for us not to comply with your request, we will explain our reasons for this decision.

Right of data portability: If you wish, you have the right to transfer your personal data between data controllers. In effect, this means that you are able to transfer your Hays account details to another online platform. To allow you to do so, we will provide you with your data in a commonly used machine-readable format that is password-protected so that you can transfer the data to another online platform. Alternatively, we will directly transfer the data for you. This right of data portability applies to: (i) personal data that we process automatically (i.e. without any human intervention); (ii) personal data provided by you; and (iii) personal data that we process based on your consent or in order to fulfil a contract.

Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority: You also have the right to lodge a complaint with your local supervisory authority. Details of how to contact them can be found here.

If you would like to exercise any of these rights, or withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal data (where consent is our legal basis for processing your personal data), details of how to contact us can be found here. Please note that we will, where necessary, keep a record of your communications to help us resolve any issues which you raise.

You may ask to unsubscribe from job alerts and other marketing communications from us at any time. Details of how to do so can be found here.

It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes during the period for which we hold your data.

WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR PROCESSING YOUR PERSONAL DATA WHEN YOU ACCESS THE HAYS WEBSITE?

You can find out which Hays entity is responsible for processing your personal data and where it is located by following this link.

If you have any comments or suggestions concerning this Privacy Policy please follow this link. We take privacy seriously so we'll get back to you as soon as possible.

HOW DO WE STORE AND TRANSFER YOUR DATA INTERNATIONALLY?

So you want to know more about how we store and transfer your data internationally? In order to provide you with the best service and to carry out the purposes described in this Privacy Policy, your data will be transferred:

  • between and within Hays entities;
  • to third parties (such as advisers or other Suppliers to the Hays business);
  • to overseas Clients where applicable;     
  • to Clients within your country, where applicable, who may, in turn, transfer your data internationally;
  • to a cloud-based storage provider; and
  • to other third parties, as referred to here.

We want to make sure that your data are stored and transferred in a way which is secure. We will therefore only transfer data outside of the European Economic Area or EEA (i.e. the Member States of the European Union, together with Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) where it is compliant with data protection legislation and the means of transfer provides adequate safeguards in relation to your data, for example:

  • by way of data transfer agreement, incorporating the current standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission for the transfer of personal data by data controllers in the EEA to data controllers and processors in jurisdictions without adequate data protection laws; or
  • transferring your data to a country where there has been a finding of adequacy by the European Commission in respect of that country's levels of data protection via its legislation; or
  • where it is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between ourselves and a third party and the transfer is in your interests for the purposes of that contract (for example, if we need to transfer data outside the EEA in order to meet our obligations under that contract if you are a Client of ours); or
  • where you have consented to the data transfer.

To ensure that your personal information receives an adequate level of protection, we have put in place appropriate procedures with the third parties we share your personal data with to ensure that your personal information is treated by those third parties in a way that is consistent with and which respects the law on data protection.

COOKIES POLICY

What's a cookie?

A "cookie" is a piece of information that is stored on your computer's hard drive and which records your navigation of a website so that, when you revisit that website, it can present tailored options based on the information stored about your last visit. Cookies can also be used to analyse traffic and for advertising and marketing purposes.

Cookies are used by nearly all websites and do not harm your system. If you want to check or change what types of cookies you accept, this can usually be altered within your browser settings or you visit our Cookie Preference Center by clicking the link “Cookie Preferences” either on the top or bottom of the page. We also provide information about this in our Marketing preferences page on the Hays website.

How do we use cookies?

We use cookies to do two things:

  • to track your use of our website. This enables us to understand how you use the site and track any patterns that emerge individually or from larger groups. This helps us to develop and improve our website and services in response to what our visitors want and need; and
  • to help us advertise jobs to you that we think you'll be interested in. Hopefully this means less time for you trawling through endless pages and will get you into the employment you want more quickly.

Cookies are either:

  • Session cookies: these are only stored on your computer during your web session and are automatically deleted when you close your browser –  they usually store an anonymous session ID allowing you to browse a website without having to log in to each page but they do not collect any information from your computer; or
  • Persistent cookies: a persistent cookie is stored as a file on your computer and it remains there when you close your web browser. The cookie can be read by the website that created it when you visit that website again. We use persistent cookies for Google Analytics and for personalisation (see below).

Cookies can also be categorised as follows:

  • Strictly required cookies: These cookies are essential to enable you to use the website effectively, such as when applying for a job, and therefore cannot be turned off. Without these cookies, the services available to you on our website cannot be provided. These cookies do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you have been on the internet.
  • Functionality cookies: These cookies enable us to monitor and improve the performance of our website. For example, they allow us to count visits, identify traffic sources and see which parts of the site are most popular. Furthermore these cookies allow our website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced features. For instance, we may be able to provide you with news or updates relevant to the services you use. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, font and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have requested such as viewing a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect is usually anonymised.
  • Advertisement cookies: These cookies help us to advertise details of potential job opportunities that we think may be of interest. These cookies are persistent (for as long as you are registered with us) and mean that when you log in or return to the website, you may see advertising for jobs that are similar to jobs that you have previously browsed.

The Cookie Preference Center (see Advanced Settings) lists the cookies we use in your jurisdiction, why we use them and what types of cookies they are.

OUR LEGAL BASES FOR PROCESSING YOUR DATA

 

LEGITIMATE INTERESTS

Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR is the one that is relevant here – it says that we can process your data where it "is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by [us] or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights or freedoms of [you] which require protection of personal data."

We don't think that any of the following activities prejudice individuals in any way – in fact, they help us to offer you a more tailored, efficient service, (for example, by using profiling  methods to personalise your experience with us and our communications with you) so everyone's a winner! However, you do have the right to object to us processing your personal data on this basis. If you would like to know more about how to do so, please click here.

Please note that in certain of the jurisdictions in which we operate, a different legal basis for data processing might apply in certain cases. For more information in relation to your jurisdiction, please click here.

 

CANDIDATE DATA:

We think it's reasonable to expect that, as a Candidate, you are happy for us to collect and otherwise use your personal data to offer or provide our recruitment services to you, share that information with prospective employers and assess your skills against our bank of vacancies. Once it's looking like you may get the job, your prospective employer may also want to double check any information you've given us (such as the results from psychometric evaluations or skills tests) or to confirm your references, qualifications and criminal record, to the extent that this is appropriate and in accordance with local laws. We need to do these things so that we can function as a profit-making business, and to help you and other Candidates get the jobs you deserve.

We want to provide you with tailored job recommendations and relevant articles and other materials (including marketing materials) to read to help you on your job hunt. We therefore think it's reasonable for us to process your data and use profiling methods to make sure that we send you the most appropriate content and identify the most suitable opportunities for you.

We also think that it might help with your job search if you take part in our specialist online training or some of our more interactive services, if you have the time. These are part of our service offering as a business, and help differentiate us in a competitive marketplace, so it is in our legitimate interests to use your data for this reason.

We have to make sure our business runs smoothly, so that we can carry on providing services to Candidates like you. We therefore also need to use your data for our internal administrative activities, like payroll and invoicing where relevant.

We have our own obligations under the law, which it is a legitimate interest of ours to insist on meeting! If we believe in good faith that it is necessary, we will therefore share your data in connection with crime detection, tax collection or actual or anticipated litigation.

***

PROSPECTIVE CANDIDATE DATA:

We think it's reasonable to assume that you are looking for employment opportunities if you have posted your professional CV information on a job board or professional networking site, and therefore that you are happy for us to collect and otherwise use your personal data to decide whether we are able to offer or provide our recruitment services to you, and to contact you in respect of those services.

***

TEMPORARY WORKER DATA:

If we employ or engage you directly as a Temporary Worker, we consider the following to be non-exhaustive examples of processing activities that are in our legitimate interests to carry out so that we can build a successful Temp Relationship:

  • for our internal administrative purposes, such as facilitating payroll and invoicing processes, if relevant to your jurisdiction;
  • determining the terms on which you work during your Temp Relationship;
  • keeping a record of start dates and duration of the length of assignments, hours works during assignments, and (in some jurisdictions) any promotions, salary rises or bonuses you are awarded;
  • giving or receiving feedback in relation to your assignment; and
  • if necessary, to assist us with establishing, exercising or defending legal claims.

***

CLIENT DATA:

To ensure that we provide you with the best service possible, we store your personal data and/or the personal data of individual contacts at your organisation as well as keeping records of our conversations, meetings, registered jobs and placements. From time to time, we will also ask you to undertake a customer satisfaction survey. We think this is reasonable – we deem these uses of your data to be necessary for our legitimate interests as an organisation providing various recruitment services to you.

***

SUPPLIER DATA:

We use and store the personal data of individuals within your organisation in order to facilitate the receipt of services from you as one of our Suppliers. We also hold your financial details, so that we can pay you for your services. We deem all such activities to be necessary within the range of our legitimate interests as a recipient of your services.

***

PEOPLE WHOSE DATA WE RECEIVE FROM CANDIDATES AND STAFF, SUCH AS REFEREES AND EMERGENCY CONTACTS:

If you have been put down by a Candidate or a prospective member of Staff as one of their referees, we use your personal data in order to contact you for a reference. This is a part of our quality assurance procedure and so we deem this to be necessary for our legitimate interests as an organisation offering recruitment services and employing people ourselves.

Where you are being asked to give a reference based on their professional experience of a Candidate, and where we think that you may be interested in becoming a Client of ours, we may also use your details to reach out to get in touch in that alternative capacity (subject to any applicable local laws and requirements).

If a Candidate or Staff member has given us your details as an emergency contact, we will use these details to contact you in the case of an accident or emergency. We are sure you will agree that this is a vital element of our people-orientated organisation, and so is necessary for our legitimate interests. 

***

WEBSITE USERS:

We deem the purposes listed above as our legitimate interest in processing Website Users’ data.

***

STAFF ALUMNI

If you have expressed an interest in using our alumni portal, we use and store your personal data so that we can engage and stay in touch with you in order to maintain our relationship. We deem this to be necessary within the range of our legitimate interests.

CONSENT

In certain circumstances, we are required to obtain your consent to the processing of your personal data in relation to certain activities. Depending on exactly what we are doing with your information, this consent will be opt-in consent or soft opt-in consent.

Article 4(11) of the GDPR states that (opt-in) consent is "any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject's wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her". In plain language, this means that:

  • you have to give us your consent freely, without us putting you under any type of pressure;
  • you have to know what you are consenting to – so we'll make sure we give you enough information;
  • you should have control over which processing activities you consent to and which you don’t. We provide these finer controls within our privacy preference centre; and
  • you need to take positive and affirmative action in giving us your consent – we're likely to provide a tick box for you to check so that this requirement is met in a clear and unambiguous fashion.

We will keep records of the consents that you have given in this way.

We have already mentioned that, in some cases, we will be able to rely on soft opt-in consent to send you marketing materials (provided that we deem that it is in our legitimate interests to do so). We are allowed to market products or services to you which are related to the recruitment services we provide to you as long as you do not actively opt-out from these communications.  In other cases, we will obtain your opt-in consent, for example, before sending marketing materials to any of our Staff Alumni.

Please note that in certain of the jurisdictions in which we operate, we comply with additional local law requirements regarding consenting to receive marketing materials. For more information in relation to your jurisdiction, please click here.

As we have mentioned, you have the right to withdraw your consent to these activities. You can do so at any time, and details of how to do so can be found here.

 

ESTABLISHING, EXERCISING OR DEFENDING LEGAL CLAIMS

Sometimes it will be necessary for us to process personal data and, where appropriate and in accordance with local laws and requirements, sensitive personal data in connection with exercising or defending legal claims. Article 9(2)(f) of the GDPR allows this where the processing "is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or whenever courts are acting in their judicial capacity".

This will arise for example where we need to take legal advice in relation to legal proceedings or are required by law to preserve or disclose certain information as part of the legal process.

 

TO EXERCISE OUR RIGHTS OR CARRY OUT OUR EMPLOYMENT AND SOCIAL SECURITY LAW OBLIGATIONS

For some Candidates, Temporary Workers and individuals whose personal data is provided by Candidates and Staff, it will sometimes be necessary for us to process your sensitive/special category personal data. Article 9(2)(b) of the GDPR allows us to do this where the processing is "necessary for the purposes of carrying out the obligations and exercising [our or your] specific rights… in the field of employment and social security and social protection law", as long as this is allowed by law.

We process Candidates' sensitive/special category personal data for the purpose of ensuring our compliance with our equal opportunities obligations where appropriate and in accordance with local law, (for example, for some Candidates during the course of the recruitment process). We will also process the sensitive/special category personal data of individuals connected with Candidates or Staff for other reasons, for example to allow the relevant Staff member to access certain benefits or employment rights. You can find out how we process your sensitive/special category personal data under "What Kind of Personal Information Do We Collect?" above.

In relation to the employment or engagement of Temporary Workers directly by us, we process your special categories of personal data for the purpose of ensuring our compliance with our equal opportunities obligations where this in accordance with local law, but we may also process other elements of your special categories of personal data during the course of our Temp Relationship for other reasons. For example, where appropriate and in accordance with any local laws and requirements, we may also process your medical data to enable us to provide you with adequate support if you suffer from a health condition or disability, for example by sharing medical information about you with an occupational health specialist, in order to determine prognosis and return to work arrangements, and to assess your working capacity more generally. We may also need to process some health-related data to ensure appropriate adjustments can be made by us or our Clients during the continuance of the Temp Relationship.  

Please note that in certain of the jurisdictions in which we operate, additional rules apply to how we process your special categories of personal data. For more information in relation to any such additional requirements in your jurisdiction, please click here.

 

WHERE PROCESSING YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS NECESSARY FOR US TO CARRY OUT OUR OBLIGATIONS UNDER OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU, TO ENSURE THAT YOU ARE PROPERLY FULFILLING YOUR OBLIGATIONS TO US, AND TO ENSURE THAT WE ARE FULFILLING OUR OBLIGATIONS TO OTHERS

The relevant basis here is Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR, which applies where processing of personal data "is necessary for the performance of a contract to which [you are] party or in order to take steps at [your] request … prior to entering into a contract".

CANDIDATE DATA

We may use automated decision making to make decisions about you based on your personal data. We will only do this where this is necessary in order to fulfil a contract you have with us or one of our Clients, or where this is necessary in order to complete steps which must be taken before you can enter into such a contract.

We think it is reasonable to assume that, as a Candidate, you are hoping to enter into an employment contract, and that by using our services you are asking us to take the necessary steps for this purpose. Such steps might include, for example, checking you meet certain requirements for a particular role. If the role is very popular, we may have to check the eligibility of a large number of potential Candidates – we may therefore use automated decision making to filter this pool of Candidates down to a more manageable number.

Please note that in certain of the jurisdictions in which we operate, a different legal basis for data processing might apply in certain cases. For more information in relation to your jurisdiction, please click here.

TEMPORARY WORKERS

In relation to the employment or engagement of Temporary Workers directly by us, prior to and during our Temp Relationship, we rely on this legal basis to collect and otherwise use your personal data to enable us to perform our part of our contract with you and our obligations to third parties, and to ensure that you are properly fulfilling your obligations to us.

By way of example, we may process your bank account details and name (and other verifying information) via payroll in order to pay you in accordance with your contract. Another example may be processing data for performance or behaviour management as part of our Temp Relationship.

 

WHERE PROCESSING YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS NECESSARY FOR US TO CARRY OUT OUR LEGAL OBLIGATIONS

In relation to the employment or engagement of Temporary Workers directly by us, as well as our obligations to you under our contract, we also have other legal obligations that we need to comply with. Article (6)(1)(c) of the GDPR states that we can process your personal data where this processing "is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which [we] are subject".

An example of a legal obligation that we need to comply with is our obligation to co-operate with tax authorities, including providing details of your remuneration and tax paid.

USE OF THIRD PARTY SERVICES

In the course of using our services, Candidates, Temporary Workers and Staff Alumni may wish to access independent websites and third party services (e.g. job platforms) which are not operated by us. Such independent sites and third parties are not under our control, and we are not responsible for and have not checked and approved their content or their privacy policies (if any). You will need to make your own independent judgement about whether to use any such independent sites, including whether to use any services offered by them.

Candidates – includes applicants for any roles advertised or promoted by Hays or individuals who Hays reasonably considers would be interested in being considered for any roles, including permanent, part-time and temporary positions and freelance roles with Hays' Clients (including those individuals who want to, or who Hays reasonably considers may want to, become Temporary Workers); as well as people who have supplied a speculative CV to Hays not in relation to a specific job. Individual contractors, freelance workers and employees of suppliers or other third parties put forward for roles with Hays' Clients as part of an MSP offering or otherwise will be treated as Candidates for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.

Clients - while it speaks for itself, this category covers our customers, clients, and others to whom Hays provides services in the course of its business or whom Hays reasonably considers would be interested in our services. In certain circumstances, Hays provides services to individual employees who work for Client organisations, such as training courses to teaching staff who work for Clients in the education sector. Please note that in this context, Hays requires Clients to communicate the relevant parts of this Privacy Policy (namely the sections directed at Clients) to their employees.

Delete – In this day and age it is virtually impossible to guarantee the permanent and irretrievable deletion of electronic data.  In addition, as we have explained to you in this Privacy Policy, sometimes we will be obliged by law or regulation, or need for risk-management reasons, to retain the ability to access certain elements of personal data.  However, our commitment to you is that once your personal data reaches the end of its nominal retention period, or where we receive a valid request from you to erase it, we will put in place specific operational and Systems measures to ensure that your data is "put beyond use".  By this we mean that while the data will still technically exist on an archive system, we will ensure that it cannot be readily accessed by any of our operational Systems, processes or Staff.  Only a very (and we mean exceptionally) small number of senior Staff, in very (and, again, we mean exceptionally) limited and carefully prescribed situations, will be able to restore your personal data so that it can be viewed for those legitimate purposes.  Once we are clear that all relevant legally mandated retention periods have expired (which, for present purposes, we expect to be the period of seven years), we will go the additional final step of undertaking a "hard delete", whereby not even that very limited number of senior Staff would be able to restore your personal data.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – a European Union statutory instrument which aims to harmonise European data protection laws. It has an effective date of 25 May 2018, and any references to it should be construed accordingly to include any related national data protection legislation.

Managed Service Provider (MSP) programmesClients' outsourcing of the management of external staff (including freelance workers, independent contractors and temporary employees) to an external recruitment provider.  

Other people whom Hays may contact – these may include Candidates' and Hays' Staff emergency contacts and referees. We will only contact them in appropriate circumstances.

Prospective Candidates – individuals with whom Hays has not had prior contact but whom Hays reasonably considers would be interested in our services and, in particular, in being considered for any roles advertised or promoted by Hays, including permanent, part-time and temporary positions and freelance roles with Hays' Clients.

Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) services – full or partial outsourcing of the recruitment process for permanent employees to a recruitment provider.

Staff – includes current and former employees and interns engaged directly in the business of Hays (or who have accepted an offer to be engaged) as well as certain other workers who are or were engaged in the business of providing services to Hays (even though they are not classed as employees). For these purposes we also include employees of Hays who are engaged to work on Clients' premises under the terms of RPO or MSP agreements. To be clear, 'Staff' does not include individuals hired by Hays for the purpose of being placed with Clients outside of an RPO/MSP arrangement. These individuals are treated in the same way as Hays' Candidates and are covered by this Privacy Policy. Likewise, independent contractors and consultants performing services for Hays fall within the definition of a 'Supplier' for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.

Suppliers – refers to partnerships and companies (including sole traders), and atypical workers such as independent contractors and freelance workers, who provide services to Hays. In certain circumstances Hays will sub-contract the services it provides to Clients to third party suppliers who perform services on Hays' behalf. In this context, suppliers that are individual contractors, freelance workers, or employees of suppliers will be treated as Candidates for data protection purposes. Please note that in this context, Hays requires Suppliers to communicate the relevant parts of this Privacy Policy (namely the sections directed at Candidates) to their employees.    

Staff Alumni – refers to former members of Staff who have expressed their wish to remain part of Hays' alumni network and to use Hays' alumni portal.

Systems – telephone, computer, internet and Wi-Fi systems, software and portals, accounts and/or networks belonging, controlled or used by Hays that are used to transmit, undertake and/or receive communications or are otherwise used in the course of Hays' business, including candidate portal software and CRM systems.

Temp Relationship – means our contractual relationship with Temporary Workers while they are employed or engaged directly by us.

Temporary Workers – includes someone who becomes employed or engaged by Hays for the purposes of undertaking temporary work for a Client or other Hays group company. If you are a Temporary Worker, we will also continue to process your personal data as a Candidate throughout the duration of your temporary work and thereafter, in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy. The question of whether and the extent to which the Recruits Privacy Policy and the Staff Privacy Policy apply to you as a Temporary Worker depends on local law requirements.

Website Users - any individual who accesses any of the Hays websites or any of the Hays mobile applications (apps).

LANDESPECIFIKKE VARIATIONER AF VORES FORTROLIGHEDSPOLITIK

JURISDIKTION: Tyskland

LANDESPECIFIKKE JURIDISKE KRAV

Referenceperson

I tilfælde hvor en referenceperson bliver bedt om at give en reference, på baggrund af deres professionelle erfaring med kandidaten, vil vi ikke bruge referencepersonens oplysninger til at komme i kontakt med vedkommende i en alternativ kapacitet som kunde, medmindre referencepersonen udtrykkeligt beder os om det.

Potentielle kandidaters oplysninger

I forbindelse med de måder hvorpå vi indsamler dine oplysninger, vil vi, hvis vi indsamler dine personlige oplysninger fra en tredjeparts onlineplatform/hjemmeside, der forbyder dataindsamling i deres brugervilkår, tage højde herfor i vores afgørelse af, hvorvidt vi vil hente dine oplysninger fra sådanne kilder.

Vi bruger potentielle kandidaters oplysninger til at finde ud af, om de kunne være interesseret i, eller kunne have gavn af, vores tjenester, og til at vurdere om og hvordan vi vil kunne hjælpe dem. Hvis vi tror vi kan hjælpe, vil vi bruge dine kontaktoplysninger til at komme i kontakt med dig og finde ud af, om du er interesseret i vores tjenester. I Tyskland kontakter vi ikke via e-mail, men via telefon eller beskeder via jobnetværket (med mindre du har givet samtykke til at blive kontaktet via e-mail).

Brug af kandidatens følsomme oplysninger eller specialekategori

Race eller etnisk baggrund

I Tyskland indsamler vi oplysninger om vores kandidaters religiøse tilhørsforhold for at lette vores lønbehandling. Da dette er et nødvendigt juridisk krav, vil vi ikke indhente dit eksplicitte samtykke til at behandle denne oplysning.

REGISTREREDES RETTIGHEDER

Ifølge lokal lovgivning har vi ret til at nægte at svare på din RETTIGHEDSANMODNING, i tilfælde hvor dine oplysninger kun opbevares: (i) i henhold til en juridisk forpligtelse til at opbevare dem; eller (ii) med henblik på at overvåge databeskyttelse eller for at sikre data i de tilfælde det ville kræve en uforholdsmæssig stor indsats at give oplysningerne, og fornødne tekniske og organisatoriske forholdsregler ville gøre behandling til andre formål umulige.

Anmodninger om at slette dine oplysninger

I tilfælde hvor dine oplysninger ikke behandles automatisk, med mindre dine oplysninger bliver behandlet ulovligt, har vi ikke pligt til at slette dine oplysninger, hvis sletning er umulig eller omfatter en uforholdsmæssig stor indsats som følge af den specifikke opbevaringsmetode, forudsat at vi mener, at din interesse i sletning er minimal. I tilfælde hvor dine oplysninger behandles automatisk, har vi også ret til at afvise at slette dine oplysninger, hvis vi har grund til at tro, at en sådan sletning vil skade dine legitime interesser i negativ retning, eller hvis en sådan sletning ville forårsage, at vi ville overtræde en juridisk forpligtelse til at opbevare dine oplysninger i en given periode. Under disse omstændigheder vil behandling af dine oplysninger i stedet være begrænset på de særlige måder, der er fastsat i GDPR.

Marketings-, retargetings- og markedsundersøgelsesformål

Samtykke ved tilmelding

Som beskrevet i den centrale tekst i vores Fortrolighedspolitik, er vi berettiget til at stole på et ”samtykke ved tilmelding” i forbindelse med visse marketingsmeddelelser, som vi ønsker at sende til dig. De betingelser, der gælder i forbindelse med vores brug at et samtykke ved tilmelding, er at: (i) vi har fået din e-mailadresse i forbindelse med salg af varer eller tjenester; (ii) vi udelukkende bruger adressen til direkte reklamer for vores egne (eller væsentligt lignende) tjenester; (iii) du ikke har gjort indsigelse mod denne brug; og (iv) vi tydeligt, i hver af disse meddelelser, oplyser dig om din ret til at trække dit samtykke tilbage.

Specifikt samtykke

I alle andre former for e-marketing, er vi forpligtet til at indhente dit specifikke samtykke og vi er forpligtet til at registrere, at vi har modtaget et sådant samtykke. For at overholde vores forpligtelser i forhold til Loven om illoyal konkurrence, udfører vi det man almindeligvis kalder ”dobbelt samtykke”, hvor vi først beder dig om at give samtykke til at modtage e-marketing, og derefter sender dig en e-mail, der beder dig om at bekræfte, at du har givet dit samtykke. Vi må først føje dig til vores marketingsliste, når vi har modtaget denne anden e-mailbekræftelse.

Retargeting

Når du giver samtykke til at dine oplysninger overføres til vores reklamepartnere, sender vi dine oplysninger (f.eks. din e-mailadresse, dit navn, dit telefonnummer) på en krypteret og pseudonymiseret måde (de såkaldte “hashes”) til vores reklamepartnere (se nedenfor, for en liste over vores reklamepartnere). De sammenligner disse oplysninger med de oplysninger, de allerede har behandlet omkring dig, og hvis de stemmer overens, vil vores partnere gøre det muligt for os at køre målrettede reklamer på disse matchende oplysninger eller til lignende grupper af mennesker som dig, hvilket betyder, at partnerne på deres platforme viser reklamer fra Hays, der er specifikt designet til dig eller folk som dig. Efter de matchende oplysninger er oprettet, vil dine krypterede oplysninger automatisk blive slettet igen hos vores partnere. Vores partnere får ikke adgang til nye adresser som følge af dette. Vi mener, at dette er en stor fordel for dig, da du på den måde kun får de reklamer, der passer til dine behov.    

Hays koncernselskaber og Hays reklamepartnere

Når vi nævner Hays koncernselskaber i Tyskland, Østrig, Danmark og Schweiz i forbindelse med ordlyden til vores reklamesamtykke, mener vi følgende juridiske enheder:

  • Hays AG, med base i Tyskland

  • Hays Professional Solutions GmbH, med base i Tyskland

  • Hays Talent Solutions GmbH, med base i Tyskland

  • Hays Technology Solutions GmbH, med base i Tyskland

  • Hays Holding GmbH, med base i Tyskland

  • Hays Beteiligungs GmbH & Co.KG, med base i Tyskland

  • Paladine GmbH, med base i Tyskland

  • Hays (Schweiz) AG, med base i Schweiz

  • Hays Talent Solutions (Schweiz) GmbH, med base i Schweiz

  • Hays Österreich GmbH, med base i Østrig

  • Hays Professional Solutions Österreich GmbH, med base i Østrig

  • Hays Specialist Recruitment Denmark A/S, med base i Danmark

Når vi omtaler reklamepartnere i forbindelse med ordlyden til vores reklamesamtykke, mener vi følgende partnere:

Overførsel uden for EØS

I tilfælde hvor vi har bedt om dit marketingssamtykke, med hensyn til vores reklamepartnere og hvor disse parter er beliggende uden for Det Europæiske Økonomiske Samarbejdsområde, giver du samtykke (Art. 49 I a GDPR) til overførsel uden for Det Europæiske Økonomiske Samarbejdsområde, og at du er bekendt med, at der kan være et lavere niveau af databeskyttelse hos disse leverandører/i disse lande end det er tilfældet i Det Europæiske Økonomiske Samarbejdsområde.

Der kan især være en risiko for, at myndigheder kan få adgang til dine oplysninger med henblik på overvågning, selv uden retlige klagemuligheder. Udøvelse af dine databeskyttelsesrettigheder, som du kender dem, og som du er bekendt med ifølge GDPR, kan være mere vanskeligt eller ligefrem umuligt.

Markedsundersøgelsesformål

Da du har givet samtykke til brugen af dine personlige oplysninger til markedsundersøgelsesformål, betyder det, at vi vil foretage undersøgelser mhp. tilfredshed, NetPromoterScore, personaleemner, ønsker, tilbud, socio-demografiske karakteristika, testning af ny platform, testgrupper, brugervenlighedstests og brandpaneler.

Visse aspekter af den tyske lovgivning antyder, at grænserne mellem rekrutteringskandidater og medarbejdere bliver udviskede. Selv om vi ikke mener at denne udviskning havde til hensigt at gælde for kandidater i forbindelse med rekruttering, vil vi, hvis dette ikke er tilfældet, stole på de ansættelsesspecifikke bestemmelser i GDPR (og den tyske lovgivning dvs. Den nye tyske databeskyttelseslov (BDSG-neu)) for at sikre, at vi kan fortsætte med at behandle dine oplysninger loyalt og lovligt.

De ansættelsesspecifikke bestemmelser tillader behandling af medarbejderes personlige oplysninger til medarbejderrelaterede formål, hvor det er nødvendigt, som følge af ansættelsesmæssige beslutninger eller efter ansættelse, til udformning eller afslutning af ansættelseskontrakten eller for at udøve eller opfylde medarbejderrepræsentationens rettigheder og pligter, der er fastsat ved lov, eller via kollektive aftaler eller andre aftaler mellem medarbejderen eller en eventuel medarbejderrepræsentant. For yderligere oplysninger bedes du se afsnit 26 i den nye tyske databeskyttelseslov (BDSG-neu).
