What Kind of Personal Data We Process, for What Purposes and How Long We Store Them

Searching Candidates for Our Clients (Executive Search)

Our core business is executive search, i.e. looking for candidates for our clients, evaluating your personal data in relation to the position we are filling for our client, communicating with you by telephone and in person, informing you of potential job opportunities, providing career guidance, obtaining references. We will not send information about you to our clients before informing you of the exact purpose of sending your data and before you have given your consent.

We Process Your Personal Data:

  • when you show interest in an advertised position by, for example, responding to a published ad or our offer. This is a pre-contractual relationship. We will never provide your data to a potential employer prior to receiving your consent. We will only process your personal data for the duration of the recruitment and selection process and afterwards, but not longer than necessary.
  • if you agree to be included in our database in order to enable us to contact you in the future if we find a job offer that might be of interest to you. We will never provide your data to a potential employer prior to obtaining your consent. We will process them for 5 years, or until you withdraw your consent, if you do so before this time.

What Kind of Personal Data We Process

We mainly process data from your CV/resume (e.g. name, address and contact details including telephone numbers and e-mail addresses, education and work history, other qualifications, language abilities and other skills); the name of the employer and the position; data on wages and other benefits; performance evaluation; references and opinions on your suitability as a candidate for a particular role within the client’s organization; a communication log; and third-party data, or any health restrictions that you provide to us that may affect your position. Our data may come from the information you have provided to us, from publicly available sources, or from third parties.

Who We Provide Your Personal Information To

We will only disclose your personal information to the extent necessary, to, for example, our employees or persons entrusted, based on a contractual relationship, with carrying out specific tasks related to our services; as well as accountants and tax advisors; or our IT support providers; or as permitted by law or required by law, to, for example, law enforcement authorities.

We will never provide your data to a potential employer without your consent.

Transfer of Personal Data to Third Countries

The free movement of personal data applies within the EU / European Economic Area. We do not plan to transfer your personal data to countries outside the EU / European Economic Area (third countries). If we decide to do so in the future, we will ensure compliance with the GDPR, making sure that the country provides, according to a decision of the European Commission, an adequate level of protection or has adopted contractual clauses.

Your Rights

If you are a data subject, you have certain rights, including the right to access your personal data, the right to obtain rectification, erasure or restriction of processing, the right to object to the processing, the right to transfer the data, the right to withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal data and the right to file a complaint with the supervisory authority.

  • Right of access: You have the right to obtain confirmation from us as to whether or not your personal data are being processed, and, where that is the case, you have the right to access and get a copy of the data. Upon request, we will provide you with all information regarding the processing of your personal data.
  • Right to rectification: You have the right to have your inaccurate personal information rectified and completed if it is incomplete.
  • Right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”): We erase your personal data (i) if it is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected; (ii) if you withdraw your consent; (ii) following an objection to processing unless there are legitimate grounds for processing; (iii) if it is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation; or (iv) if processing your personal data proves to be unlawful. However, this right may be overridden. There are cases where this right does not apply, e.g. when it is necessary to establish, enforce or defend legal claims.
  • Right to restriction of processing: You have the right to obtain restriction of processing if (i) you have contested the accuracy of the personal data, for a period enabling us to verify the accuracy of the personal data; (ii) the processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of the personal data and request the restriction of their use instead; (iii) we no longer need your personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you require them for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; (iv) you have objected to processing, until it has been verified whether our legitimate grounds override yours.
  • Right to object to processing: You have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data, when such processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or a third party.
  • Right to data portability: If we process, based on a contract or consent, personal data you have provided to us in an electronic form, you have the right to have your data transferred to a third party in a commonly used and machine-readable form.
  • Right to withdraw your consent: If processing is based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. Doing so does not affect the legality of the processing based on the consent granted prior to its withdrawal.
  • Right to file a complaint: If the processing of your personal data is in violation of the GDPR or other data protection legislation, you have the right to file a complaint with the supervisory authority that supervises our activities. In the Slovak Republic it is:
