E.g. in order to improve recruitment & selection reports, regarding the numbers of vacancies, the numbers of applicants and the speed of filling vacancies. The results of analyses and accompanying advice are never traceable to you.

    Special categories of personal data

    Special categories of personal data are sensitive data (e.g. on health, criminal convictions or offences, racial or ethnic origin.) The purpose of this is to protect the interests of financial institutions, of you as an applicant or employee and of our clients, e.g. by detecting fraud.
    In case of a specific request to store the special category data, we will only process them if the purpose is clear if there is a basis for processing and the processing is necessary for the purpose. Special categories of personal data like pictures of you or video material may also be processed.

    Protection of the applicant’s vital interests

    We may process data in order to protect your vital interests. E.g. regarding your medical data. Suppose you are in direct danger (unconscious) and unable to consent to the sharing of your medical data. These data are nonetheless vital to the immediate initiation of medical assistance.

    Access to your data

    Your personal data are only processed by employees who need access to them, given their function. The employees who are involved in your job application have a duty of confidentiality. We only reuse your data if the new purpose is related to that for which your personal data were initially collected.
    We exchange these types of data with third parties. Sometimes we engage third parties who process personal data on our behalf. E.g. external recruitment agencies (like Jobberman, Independent Recruiters) or a research agency. We can only involve third parties if this fits the purpose for which we processed your personal data and the involvement is sufficiently reliable. In addition, the third party can only get our assignment if it demonstrates that suitable security measures are taken and confidentiality is guaranteed. If an assessment is part of your application, we will inform you in advance. Only after you have approved the report, will we save it in your application file.

    This is how long we store your data

    If you have made an online profile with us, you can use it again for another application at Zarttech. We can no longer view the data of your previous application at that time. Was your application rejected? Then we will delete your personal data no later than six weeks after the end of the application process. This concerns all application data such as your cover letter, CV, e-mail exchange and any screening and/or assessment data. If we do want to store your personal data for a longer period of time, for example, to match them with future vacancies, we will ask your consent. We will delete your data no later than one year after the end of the application procedure.
    Are you joining us? Then the application file will be kept for one year after the end of the employment. Your data which were recorded within the framework of 'sourcing' will be deleted as soon as possible if they are no longer relevant for the purpose for which they were collected. If there has been no contact within six months, we will automatically delete all your personal data.

    4. Subject Data rights

    These are your rights with regard to the processing of your personal data. Specific rights apply to the processing of your personal data.

    Rights Description

    Right to rectification If the personal data we store about you is incorrect, incomplete or in violation of the law, you can ask us to rectify it.
    Right to be forgotten You may request that your personal data that are stored by us be deleted if you object to these data being processed. E.g. if the processing is unlawful or no longer necessary for the purposes for which the data was collected.
    Right to restriction of processing In certain cases, you may ask to limit the personal data that is processed about you. This means that fewer data will be processed.
    Right not to be subject to fully automated decision-making Fully automated decisions are decisions that are made by computers, not by people (anymore). According to the law, Zarttech may use automated decision making including profiling. At this moment we do not use fully automated decision making in the application procedure.
    Right to data portability Data provided to us on the basis of a contract and/or with your consent may be transferred to another party. Transfer to another party can only happen if this is technically possible. Zarttech will transfer the data provided by you in a structured and readable form.
    Right to object You may object to the processing of your personal data. If you do so, we will make a new assessment to determine whether your data may indeed no longer be used for this purpose. Either way, we always inform you about the motivation for our decision. If you don’t accept the decision, you can lodge a complaint with the Compliance department of Zarttech.

    Procedure regarding your rights

    If you have made one of the requests described above, we will respond to your request within 60 days of receipt. Depending on the number and complexity of the request, the period may be extended by a further three months. We will of course keep you informed about the progress of your request. In case the data that needs to be provided also includes data from third parties, this third party may be asked in advance whether there are any objections to disclosure. We may ask for further specification of your request. We may also ask for identification, as we want to make sure we are providing information to the correct person. In some cases, we will not meet your request. For example, we do not delete the data if it is of significant importance to us or if there is a legal obligation to store it. We will inform you if this is the case.
