- provide identifiable data in the chat (provided through the website that uses the Service) and such data is of relevance to the application procedure;
We collect data from third parties, such as Facebook, Linkedin and through other public sources. This is referred to as “Sourcing” and will be manually handled by our employees or automatically in the Service.
The types of personal data collected and processed
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 process, business 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, such as CV, cover letter, photos etc.
We ask that Users refrain from sharing sensitive personal data, such as information regarding physical or mental health, political opinion, religious affiliation, union membership or sexual orientation. We also ask that you do not add contact information to your references in your CV. Please instead add such information when requested.
