5.1 Data collected during registration

5.1.1 You must register to use the Services. You have the choice between registering as an employer or an applicant. In both cases, you must enter your name, your e-mail address and a password of your own choice to register.

If you register as an applicant seeking job offers, you must in addition provide the following job-related information, which will be included in your user profile: Your place of residency, work experience, basic information about your preferred job (location, field/industry, position) and your employment status (i.e. whether you are currently actively looking for a new job). You must also send us your CV. The communication of your personal data is not required by law, but is required to conclude the contract regarding the use of our services. You may also voluntarily provide additional information to supplement your user profile, such as your exact professional background, the existence of a work permit and details of your skills and experience.

5.1.2 We will process all of the aforementioned personal data of your user profile solely for the purpose of providing the services on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b) GDPR.

5.2 Use of the Services

5.2.1 We process the personal data of your user profile in order to provide the services. If you are registered as an applicant, we may also recommend your profile to an employer with regard to a job application, and in this context transfer your personal information stored in your profile.

In addition, we offer communication services through which you can communicate with an employer or applicant. We can thus, for this purpose, transmit data from your user profile and the message content to your communication partner.

The legal basis for the above mentioned data processing is Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR.

5.2.2 Please note that employers or applicants registered for our services may also be located outside the EU, such as in the US. By providing the services, we can therefore also transfer your personal data to these countries. Transmission will only take place if an appropriate level of protection is guaranteed or if you expressly consent to it after having been informed about the potential risks of such data transmissions without suitable guarantees. The legal basis for these transmissions is Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR and Art. 45 GDPR (if there is an adequacy decision set by the Commission), Art. 46 GDPR (if the respective recipient provides sufficient guarantees) or Art. 47 GDPR, for all other cases.

5.2.3 We may also process the contents of the message in order to improve, detect and prevent misuse of our services. Such data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is the optimization of our services and ensuring the proper use of our services.

5.2.4 If a contract between you and an applicant or employer has been concluded, we collect remuneration data from this contract (employment date, job title, and agreed remuneration including any bonus payments). The disclosure of this information is set in the contract regarding the use of our services, so failure to notify us will result in breach of your contract with us. We will process this data together (if necessary with the payment information provided by you) to calculate and bill our compensation as well as, if necessary, to determine your bonus payments, which we may wish to grant you. The legal basis for this processing is Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. b) GDPR.

Of course, you can unsubscribe from the e-mail newsletter and revoke your consent to receive the newsletter at any time. You can object to the use of your e-mail address at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates. All you have to do is send an informal e-mail to [email protected] or click on the unsubscribe link contained in each newsletter.

We process personal data of the user as long as the user is registered for the use of our services or as long as it is necessary to achieve the processing purposes or is prescribed by a legal obligation to store the data. Subsequent to this period, the data is immediately deleted.

However, we store data for legal reasons for as long as this is required by law (up to ten years). Furthermore, we store data, in case legal disputes arise, for as long as this is legally permissible. This can be up to 30 years.

If necessary, we may ask the user, when submitting content, for permission to process the data beyond this period.

Apart from that, Taledo will not pass on the User’s personal data to third parties unless the user has expressly consented to the transfer (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a) GDPR) and Taledo is not entitled or obliged to do so by legal provisions or court orders. In the latter case, the transmission by Taledo is for the fulfilment of a legal obligation pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c) GDPR.
