Job seekers
Customers. We present your anonymous profile to our customers who are requesting staff. The profile includes information about your professional competence and professional background but never a name, phone number or social security number.

Employees. When our employees work on projects with you, they get information about the names and numbers of current contact persons on your projects.

Processing of personal data (geographically)

Your data should be processed within the EU/EEA but may in exceptional cases be transferred to, and processed in, countries outside the EU/EEA by another supplier or subcontractor.

Data protection

Retention of personal data

We only store your data for as long as it is necessary to carry out our commitments to you as an employee or customer and as long as required by statutory retention periods.

Job seekers
When you apply for a job with us, you may give consent for us to be able to process your personal data collected during our recruitment process. We obtain consent every 3 years and you can choose to withdraw your consent at any time, which leads to your profile and thus your personal data with us being deleted.
Please note that our handling of your data is also based on a legal obligation regarding the Discrimination Act.

When you become employed by us, you will receive information about how we process your personal data within the framework of our business. The information clarifies what data we process, with what purpose, how the data is processed, by whom the data is processed and disclosed to and on what legal basis the processing takes place.

As long as you have ongoing projects and if there are remaining commitments such as chord reconciliation, we will save your information. In addition, we will save your data as long as it is necessary for us to maintain the relationship with you. Deletion occurs if we become aware that the data is no longer adequate or relevant for the purpose or at your request.
