The protection of your privacy is important to us. We comply with the relevant applicable legislation when processing and using personal data.
This policy statement is intended to inform you, as an applicant, and our other business partners about the nature, scope and purpose of processing personal data in connection with the use of the services of GLASFORD INTERNATIONAL AUSTRIA and its affiliated companies, visits to our websites, the use of the Job Lounge and any other contractual assignments, and about your rights as an affected individual.
Certain of the terms used in the following policy statement are defined below:
We capture, process and use your personal data in compliance with the applicable data protection legislation only
We only process those personal data which are necessary in order to be able to perform and provide our services associated with the performance of a contract and the performance of pre-contractual undertakings, and/or those which you have provided on a voluntary basis in the context of your application, your job description or other aspects associated with the performance of the relevant contract.
The following data are generally processed in the course of handling applications and application processes:
Please note that it is not necessary to disclose any special categories of personal data, as defined by Article 9 GDPR, such as your social insurance number, religious denomination, trade union affiliations and/or sexual orientation. We therefore request that you do not provide us with any such sensitive data.
The personal data you disclose to us as an applicant and your associated documentation (e.g. CV, certificates, references) and the profile we prepare will be processed by GLASFORD INTERNATIONAL AUSTRIA and its affiliated companies for the purposes of facilitating a contract of employment and forwarded to potential employers only after previously obtaining your explicit consent. Without these personal data, it is neither possible to accept your application nor to inform you about suitable vacant positions.
As a data subject, you have the right to be informed about your stored personal data, their origins and recipients, and the purpose of the data processing. You also have the right to insist on the correction, transfer, to object to and/or restrict the processing of your personal data, and to demand the blocking or deletion of incorrect or inadmissibly processed data.
Please inform us accordingly if your personal data change. You have the right to withdraw your consent to the use of your personal data at any time. Please send any requests for information, deletion, correction, objections and/or data transfers (in as far as these do not entail disproportionate efforts) to the address defined under Point 12 of this policy statement. You will be required to establish your identity if you wish to gain access to your personal data.
If you believe that our processing of your personal data is in violation of the applicable data protection legislation or your data protection rights have been infringed in some other manner, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. In Austria, this is the Austrian Data Protection Authority (DSB).
Your personal data are protected by means of appropriate organisational and technical precautions. These precautions relate in particular to the prevention of unauthorised, illegal or coincidental access to and the processing, loss, use and manipulation of your personal data. Despite our efforts to at all times appropriately comply with high standards in terms of due diligence, it cannot be excluded that information you provide us via the Internet may be viewed or used by other individuals.
We therefore accept no liability of any kind for the disclosure of information on the grounds of errors relating to data transfer and/or unauthorised access by third parties for which we are not accountable (e.g. hacking of email accounts or telephones, interception of faxes, etc.).
We commit not to process the personal data provided to us for any purposes other than those defined by your assignment or our mutual contract, your consent, the performance of our legal obligations, our legitimate interests or other justification consistent with the GDPR legislation. The only exception to the above relates to the use of personal data for statistical purposes provided that the data made available have been subjected to pseudonymisation.
In order to perform your assignment, it may be necessary to forward your data to third parties (e.g. IT service providers and other service providers which we resort to in order to perform our activities and which we provide with data). Your data shall only be forwarded on the basis of the applicable data protection legislation, in particular for the purposes of fulfilling your assignment or on the grounds of your existing consent.
Applicants’ data shall only be forwarded to potential employers after your explicit consent has been obtained.
Certain of the abovementioned recipients of your personal data may be located or process your personal data abroad. The level of data protection existing in countries outside the EU and the EEA may not be consistent with that existing in Austria. However, we only transfer personal data to countries which have been assessed by the EU as possessing an appropriate level of data protection or we undertake action in order to ensure that all recipients of personal data have established an appropriate level of data protection.
We always strive to ensure that any data breaches are identified at an early stage and, if necessitated, that these breaches and the relevant data categories affected are reported to you and/or the competent supervisory authority without delay.
We will not store any personal data for longer than this is necessary or permitted in order to fulfil our contractual and/or legal obligations (particularly with regard to mandatory data storage periods), for the assertion of or defence against any liability claims or on the grounds of other justifiable legal reasons.
