Purpose of storage and type of data

We collect and store personal data on the basis of Art. 6 GDPR para.1.
In the vast majority of cases:

  • if you have given your consent to the processing of your personal data, e.g. by making available your application/candidate documents or other personal data made available.
  • if the processing is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract to which the data subject is a party or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, e.g. due to an employment contract with Hager-UB, in the application process or due to a contract for training/coaching measures or other personnel services.
  • if the processing is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation
  • if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of the responsible party, e.g. the economic interest of our company to fill an advertised position with the best possible candidates and to form a candidate pool which provides an interesting selection for future vacancies.

Your processed personal data may have been collected from you in accordance with Art. 13 GDPR or from third parties or other sources in accordance with Art. 14 GDPR.

These are, for example:

  • Your contact information (name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, etc.),
  • Information about your vocational training,
  • Your educational certificates, your vocational diplomas and certificates,
  • Your career development and information about your salary,
  • Data about your suitability for vacancies with clients that we compile as part of our professional profile reviews,
  • Information about your professional life that is publicly available on the Internet via social media services (e.g., Xing, Google, LinkedIn, Experteer, etc.) or otherwise that may be relevant to your qualifications for a particular leadership or similar management position,
  • Any sensitive personal information you disclose to us.

We use extensive technical and organizational security measures in order to protect the data administered by us against manipulation, loss, destruction and against access by unauthorized persons. Our security measures are developed on an ongoing basis in line with technological developments.
If you provide information to us, we may contact you through the contact information you may provide in order to resolve any questions that you may have about our site or to obtain additional information from you.

Duration of data storage

We only store your data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purpose of processing your data:

  • for the purpose of processing the contract and for the enforcement and defence of civil claims arising from the contractual and statutory obligations towards you until the end of the year following the statute of limitations of all reciprocal claims
  • within the framework of an application procedure or for the formation of a candidate pool in our mutual legitimate interest for two years or with your consent for an unlimited period of time, whereby you may revoke this consent at any time.

Passing on to third parties

Within the framework of a contractual relationship, your data will only be passed on for a specified purpose based on contractual or statutory agreements or with your consent.

No further transmission to third parties will take place. Exceptions to this rule apply to the execution of our activities. Here, we make use of sub-areas such as technical support, mail and data storage, hosting provided by external service providers who have been obligated to maintain confidentiality or with whom a contract for order processing exists according to Art. 28 GDPR and who have taken extensive measures to protect the security of your data. The data disclosed may only be used by third parties for the purposes stated. In addition, your personal data may be disclosed or transmitted to third parties if we are obliged to do so by law or a legally binding judgement.

We may share your personal information with potential employers as part of a candidate search at the premises of one of our clients or if you are stored within our candidate pool.

This may include information such as your professional training and background to determine whether mandates are of interest when it comes to filling an executive or similar management position.

The information disclosed will be limited to that which is necessary for that purpose. We will not disclose all of your candidate information to a client, nor will we otherwise present you in detail to a client without first obtaining your consent.

Clients to whom we may disclose extracts of your candidate information may be located in countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) for which the European Union has not determined that they have an adequate level of protection of personal data, i.e. a level of protection of fundamental rights and freedoms substantially equivalent to that guaranteed within the European Union.
Similarly, jurisdictions outside the European Union with respect to the countries to which your candidate information or parts thereof are transmitted in accordance with the foregoing may find that these countries do not have an adequate level of protection.

By accepting this Privacy Policy, you expressly and unambiguously agree that your candidate information, or any part thereof, as described above, may be disclosed to recipients in countries or otherwise transmitted to recipients in countries that may have a different, lower or even insufficient level of protection of your personal data compared to the applicable standards in the jurisdiction in which you reside or work or from which you contact us, and you expressly and unambiguously waive protection in accordance with these standards for the information thus disclosed or transmitted.

As part of the candidate search, your candidate information can be processed for the following purposes:

  • Conducting searches for potential candidates on behalf of clients who have a vacancy in an executive or similar management position
  • Assessing your suitability for vacant positions with clients
  • To inform you of any vacant executive or similar management positions that may be relevant to you
  • To introduce you to clients as potential employees
  • To verify your educational credentials, professional qualifications and certificates.
  • In addition, your candidate information may be processed for the following purposes
  • Researching information focused on your professional life that is publicly available via social media services (e.g., Xing, Google, LinkedIn, etc.) or available on the Internet, or that arises from data previously disclosed by you to us, to the extent that such information may be relevant to your qualification for a particular management or similar position
  • Contacting you after you have been hired by a client as a source of information for potential additional candidates for additional clients
  • Ensuring that you are not solicited on behalf of another client after being hired by a client unless you ask to be considered for other vacancies.
