If you are a Recruiter, your personal data is processed for the following purposes:

    After a contract is concluded between the Data Controller and the Employer for the provision of access services to the system supporting recruitment processes, the Data Controller will provide the Recruiters indicated by the Employer with access to the System.

After logging in, you will be able to provide the following data: name and surname, email address, telephone and photo. This data will be included in the invitation you will send to selected Candidates.

IV. Transmission of the Candidate’s data to the Employer

If you are a Candidate, the System checks whether your Profile matches the job offers posted by the Employer. If so, the Employer will receive notifications in the System about finding the Candidate and will be able to get acquainted with your Profile, which at this stage does not contain any personal data. The Employer may invite you to connect, in which case the Bot will provide you with information about the Employer who wants to meet you. If you agree to provide your personal data to the Employer, the Employer will receive full access to all information contained in the Profile, including your contact details. At this point, the Data Controller’s involvement ends and the recruitment process is conducted by the Employer potentially interested to hire you.

The Data Controller reserves that they do not guarantee that the Candidate will be matched to any job offer. At the same time, the Candidate waives to the maximum extent permitted by law any claims against the Data Controller arising or likely to arise from an unsuccessful recruitment process.

V. The need to provide data while using the System’s services?

Providing data is voluntary, but necessary for the provision of services rendered by the Data Controller. If you do not provide data, it will not be possible to match your Profile to the job offers published by Employers (if you are a Candidate) or it will not be possible for you to conduct the recruitment process on behalf and for the benefit of the Employer (if you are a Recruiter).

VI. Matching Profiles to job postings

The Data Controller shall make efforts to match the Candidates’ Profiles to the job offers in the best possible way (profiling).

Data profiling concerns you if you are a Candidate.
The Data Controller processes the personal data you provided during the conversation with the Bot. They are used to automatically create a professional profile, in line with your education, work experience, skills, and preferences. A Profile created in this way is then matched by the Data Controller to the requirements indicated by the Employers in the job offers they post.

The Data Controller does not use information about the Candidates that is not related to their professional development and planned career plans.

VII. Cookies

Cookies are text files that are stored on the device which you use to access the System (e.g. computer or smartphone). Cookies are designed to store information about how you use the System. They contain the name of the website, their unique number and the time of storing information on the device through which you have accessed the System.

The Data Controller is the entity placing cookies on the device from which you have logged in the System, and having access to them.

The Data Controller uses these files (cookies) for the following purposes:

  • To adjust the content of the website to your individual preferences;
  • To prepare statistics to help learn about the preferences and behaviors of the users of the System. Analyzing these statistics is anonymous and allows to adjust the content and appearance of the System to current trends. These statistics are also used to assess how popular is the System;
  • To collect statistics and improve the functioning of the System. Anonymized statistical data are passed on to certain Data Controller’s clients in order to assess the effectiveness of their recruitment activities.

VIII. Transmission of personal data

Apart from Employers, to whom the Data Controller transfers data in the manner described in point IV of this Privacy Policy, the Data Controller may also transfer your personal data to the following entities:

Processors
The Data Controller cooperates with entities that process the personal data of Candidates only on instructions from the Data Controller. This concerns, among other things, cloud computing services, mailings, and support for the System’s services (e.g. automatic creation of Candidates’ Profiles). All entities to which the Data Controller has entrusted the processing of data have their registered offices in the European Economic Area (EEA).

Authorized state authorities
The Data Controller has the right to make the personal data of the Candidates available on the recommendation of authorized state authorities, e.g. the Public Prosecutor’s Office, the Police, the President of the Office of Personal Data Protection, the President of the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection or the President of the Office of Electronic Communications.

IX. Duration of data retention

The Candidate’s personal data is stored for the duration of his/her use of the System, for the purpose of providing services to the Candidate. When the Candidate’s use of the System ends, the Candidate’s Profile, along with most of his/her personal data, will be deleted, except for the following data: name and surname, email address, information about the recruitment processes to which the Candidate has been recommended and invited, and information about the consents given. The above data will be kept by the Data Controller for the period of 3 years from the date of deletion of the Profile, for the purpose of examining possible complaints and claims related to the use of the System.

We store the personal data of the Recruiters for the duration of the contract concluded between the Data Controller and the Employer, on the basis of which Recruiters obtain access to the System. After the termination of the contract with the given Employer or after the submission by the Recruiter of an application for removal of his/her data, most of the personal data of the Recruiter will be deleted, except for the following data: name and surname, email address, information about the recruitment processes conducted by the Recruiter and information about given consents. The above data will be stored by the Data Controller for a period of 3 years from the date of deletion of the Recruiter’s data for the purpose of examining possible complaints and claims related to the use of the System.

Personal data processed in connection with the Data Controller’s marketing activities will be processed during the time they are conducted or until the user objects to further processing of his/her personal data for marketing purposes, or revokes the consent to receive marketing information to the email address or telephone contact.

X. The rights of all users in relation to the processing of their personal data

Below are the rights of the Candidate, the Recruiter and users who have given their marketing consent with regard to the processing of their personal data by the Data Controller. In order to exercise any of the following rights, we encourage you to contact us by sending us an email to the following address: kontakt@emplocity.pl

  • Withdrawal of consent (Article 7(3) of the GDPR)
    Candidates and Recruiters have the right to revoke any consent given by the Candidate and the Recruiter at the time they start using the System or initiate a conversation with the Candidate. Withdrawal of this consent shall be effective from the time of withdrawal. At the same time, the withdrawal of a given consent by a Candidate or Recruiter does not affect the compatibility of the processing performed by the Data Controller before the withdrawal.

    The user who has given his/her marketing consent may withdraw it at any time. The withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing prior to the withdrawal of consent.

    Withdrawal of consent shall not result in negative consequences for the person who withdrew consent. However, it may prevent further use of the System, which is possible only on the basis of prior consent (e.g. disclosure of the Employer’s Profile).

  • The right to object (Article 21 of the GDPR)
    Candidates and Recruiters have the right at any time to object to the use of their personal data, including profiling, if the data are processed based on the legitimate interests of the Data Controller.

    The user who has given his/her marketing consent may at any time object to further processing of personal data for marketing purposes.
    As the Candidate’s resignation from receiving notifications of matched job offers in the form of notifications by the Bot, the Data Controller shall consider an objection by the Candidate to the processing of personal data, including profiling, for the purpose of matching profiles to job offers.

    If a Candidate or Recruiter’s objection proves to be justified and the Data Controller has no other legal basis for the processing of the Candidate or Recruiter’s personal data, the personal data, the use of which has been objected to, will be deleted.

  • The right to erasure (Article 17 of the GDPR)
    Every user has the right to request the deletion of all or some of his/her personal data. If a Candidate or Recruiter sends a request to remove all personal data, the Data Controller will treat such a request as a request to remove the automatically created Profile – in the case of a Candidate – or as a request to prevent access to the System – in the case of a Recruiter.

    Every user has the right to request the deletion of data if:

    • the personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed;
    • the data subject withdraws the consent insofar as his/her personal data were processed based on that consent;
    • the data subject objected to the use of his/her personal data and the objection was found to be justified;
    • the personal data have been unlawfully processed.

    The Data Controller shall have the right to retain certain personal data in the scope necessary for the purposes of establishing, investigating or defending claims, despite the request to delete personal data, in connection with raising an objection or withdrawing consent. This applies in particular to the following personal data: name, surname, email address, information about recruitment processes to which the Candidate has been recommended and invited, information about the recruitment processes conducted by the Recruiter and information about the consents given, which we retain for the purpose of handling complaints and claims related to the use of the System.

  • Right to restriction of processing (Article 18 of the GDPR)
    Every user has the right to request that the processing of his/her personal data be restricted. After receiving such a notification, the Data Controller shall prevent the use of the System to the extent that it requires the use of personal data covered by the request or will take action to limit its marketing activities.

    Each user shall have the right to request that the processing of his/her personal data be restricted in the following cases:

    • where the accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period enabling the Data Controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data; but not longer than 14 days;
    • where the processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests the restriction of their use instead;
    • where the personal data provided by the user are no longer needed for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by the user for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims;
    • where the Candidate or Recruiter have objected to processing of their personal data –the restriction shall be then for the time needed for the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the Data Controller override those of the Candidate or Recruiter.
  • Right of access by the data subject (Article 15 of the GDPR)
    Each user has the right to obtain from the Data Controller a confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning him or her are being processed within the System. In the case of personal data being processed by the Data Controller, the user has the right to:

    • access his/her personal data;
    • obtain information about the purposes of the processing, the categories of personal data processed, the recipients or categories of recipients of the data, the intended retention period or the criteria for determining that period, the right to request the rectification, erasure or restriction of the processing of personal data, the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority, the source of the data, automated decision-making, including profiling, and the safeguards applicable in relation to the transfer of the data outside the European Economic Area;
    • obtain a copy of his/her personal data.
  • Right to rectification (Article 16 of the GDPR)
    The data subject shall have the right to obtain from the controller without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning him/her. At any moment, the data subject also has the right to have the incomplete personal data completed.

  • Right to data portability (Article 20 of the GDPR)
    Each user has the right to receive his/her personal data provided to the Data Controller, as well as to send these personal data to another controller of personal data. Each user has also the right to request that his or her personal data be sent directly to another controller, if technically possible.

    The Candidate’s personal data will be sent in the form of a text file in .json format, which is a commonly used format, machine-readable and allowing for the transfer of the received data to another personal data controller.

  • The deadline for satisfying a request
    If you wish to use the above-mentioned rights, your request will be satisfied (or, in justified circumstances, the Data Controller will refuse to execute it) immediately, but no later than within 14 days from the receipt of the relevant request by the Data Controller. However, if – due to the complicated nature of the request or the number of requests – the Data Controller is unable to satisfy your request within 14 days, the request shall be satisfied within the next 14 days, informing you in advance about the extension of the deadline.

    For technical reasons, the Data Controller may need up to 72 hours to update your data. This may result in the fact that during the time of the update you may still receive notifications, which you have requested to be discontinued.

XI. Complaints, enquiries and requests

Each user may submit complaints, enquiries and requests concerning the processing of their personal data and the exercise of their rights via email at: kontakt@emplocity.pl.

If you believe that your right to the protection of personal data or other rights granted to you under the GDPR have been violated, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the President of the Office for the Protection of Personal Data.

XII. How does the Data Controller ensure personal data security?

In order to ensure the security of the personal data being processed, the Data Controller shall make every effort to ensure a sufficiently high level of personal data protection. For this purpose, the Data Controller uses encryption for all Internet connections with System users, as well as for connections with third-party websites, and uses cryptographically signed security tokens to ensure the security of the data entered. Moreover, the data being processed by the Data Controller are placed in secure server rooms protected in accordance with the highest standards, and the software used to protect them is constantly updated to eliminate any possible security gaps. Access to servers on which personal data are processed is limited to a strictly defined group of authorized employees.
