Job Applicants' Privacy Notice

At Forbis, we care about your privacy and we always collect and process personal data responsibly and with your privacy in mind.

This Privacy Notice describes how we collect and use your personal data as an applicant, sourced or referred candidate before, during and after the recruitment process. It also describes your rights and how to exercise them.

Purpose of the personal data processing

The purpose of the processing is to find and hire suitable candidates to our company; we may also use the data for statistical analysis and business reporting.

The personal data we process

The data we process is your contact details, experience, education, skills, CV, LinkedIn profile or other similar publicly available information. For referrals, we may also process other information given by the person that suggested you as a suitable candidate.
 
In certain cases, Forbis may also conduct a background check, which could include processing additional information that is deemed relevant to the role that you are applying for.
 
The information provided will be available for Human Resources (HR) and the recruiting manager within Forbis on a need-to-know basis.

The legal basis for the processing

Unless stated otherwise, we will process your personal data based on your consent and (or) our legitimate interest to comply with laws and regulations (for example, it is required to review, copy and check documents evidencing your right to work) and anti-discrimination (or other employment) laws, or where such data must be collected and processed for entering a contract.
 
If you are actively applying for a position at Forbis, you give Forbis the consent by sending your application. For sourced candidates and referrals Forbis collects the consent separately. This is normally collected at a later stage in the recruitment process.
 
If we have asked for your consent to collect and process certain types of personal information, you may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us by email.

The time we will keep your personal data

The data will be retained for a period of three months from the end of certain position’s recruitment process. The retention period is based on the time under which a candidate can initiate proceedings against company, e.g. discrimination claims.

You also have the right to rectify such data, and under some circumstances the right to disagree with data processing or restrict it, as well as the right to have your data deleted or transferred.

The data may be transferred outside the EU/EEA. If this is done, Forbis will put in place adequate safeguards in order to protect the data in accordance with applicable data protection legislation, e.g. EU Standard Contractual Clauses.
