This privacy statement inter alia contains information on what purposes we process your personal data for, which legal bases apply to the processing of your personal data, whom we might share your personal data with and what your rights are in regards to our processing of your personal data.
In terms of the General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter: ‘GDPR’), Go Ahead is the ‘controller’ in regards to the processing of personal data mentioned hereinafter.
We process the personal data that you provide us with, insofar as this is necessary for the purposes set out in this privacy statement. We may also process the personal data your employer provides us with, when we offer services to your employer.
Insofar as your employer provides us with your personal data in regards to services we were engaged for by your employer (such as re-location of you as an employee or the coordination of a workshop you participate in), the following personal data about you will be processed:
We process your personal data for the following purposes:
Your personal data is not processed by us for other purposes than those which are described in this privacy statement, unless we have informed you about the additional purposes prior to the processing or at the time the personal data are obtained (insofar as legally allowed) and the additional processing is based on a legal basis. Your personal data is not processed any further by us than necessary for the realization of our purposes of processing.
We only process your personal data insofar as a legal basis is applicable. We process your personal data on the following legal bases.
For some of the purposes mentioned above, we process your personal data on the basis of your consent. Once you have given your consent, you may withdraw it at any time by notifying us via email email@example.com. This does not affect the lawfulness of the processing of your personal data during the period that your consent was given and you had not yet withdrawn it.
We base the processing for the purposes mentioned under 1, 2 and 3 on your consent. If you prior to being approached by Go Ahead made know you were open to work or to be approached by recruiters, processing for the purposes mentioned under 1 and 2 takes place on the basis of Go Ahead’s legitimate interests (as mentioned hereinafter).
For the purposes mentioned above, we also process your personal data on the basis that the processing is necessary for the purposes of legitimate interests pursued by us. These interests consist of being able to contact possible candidates, to fill in open applications, to contract with and provide our services to client companies, to provide candidates feedback on how to improve their CV and being able to answer contact requests.
We process your personal data on this legal basis for the purposes mentioned before as 1, 2 and 4, 5, 6, 7 and 9. If you have any questions about the balancing of interests in regards to the above, please contact us using the contact details mentioned at the bottom of this document.
Where other legal bases apply, this legal basis only applies insofar as the other legal bases don’t apply to the entire processing for the purposes.
Contract or requested steps prior to contract
For some of the purposes mentioned above, we process your personal data on the basis that it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you (in person) are party or in order to make steps at your request prior to entering into such a contract. This is the case for the purpose mentioned before as 5.
Finally, some of the processing of your personal data takes place because we are legally obliged to do so – mostly by tax legislation. For instance, the ‘Algemene wet inzake rijksbelastingen’ obliges us to retain certain fiscally relevant data for a period of 7 years. More information on this is provided in paragraph ‘Retention of your personal data’ hereinafter.
We process your personal data on the legal basis stemming from a legal obligation to process that personal data for the purpose mentioned as 8.
You are under no statutory or contractual obligation (from a contract with Go Ahead) to provide us with your personal data. If you do not provide us with your personal data, this may result in us not being able to let you take part in an application procedure, to follow up on requests, to do business with your company and – in any case – process your personal data for aforementioned purposes. If you are an employee of a client company, your employment contract may stipulate otherwise.
We do not share your personal data with third parties, unless such sharing is necessary for purposes mentioned above or the transfer of personal data to such parties occurs on your request.
Subject to the foregoing, we transfer your personal data to the following recipients:
Please note that there may be a legal obligation or a court order obliging us to disclose personal data to a third party. In such a case, we will need to comply and share your personal data with that third party.
Insofar as the client company (which we would want to introduce you to) is established in the United Kingdom, any transfers thereto are based on the ‘adequacy decision’ of the European Commission for the UK (in the sense of art. 45 GDPR). More information about the adequacy decision can be found here.
Microsoft Corporation and LinkedIn Corporation are partly based in the United States. Any necessary transfers of personal data by these companies to the US are based on (inter alia) standard contractual clauses (in the sense of art. 46(2) GDPR). More information on Microsoft Corporation in this regard can be found here. In regards to LinkedIn Corporation, such information can be found here.
We process your personal data for no longer than is strictly necessary for the purposes for which the personal data are processed. More specifically, this means that (e.g.) we process fiscally relevant personal data for a maximum of 7 years after the end of our business relation with you or your employer. If we approached you as a candidate but you did not get the position, we will remove your personal data at the latest 4 weeks after the end of the solicitation procedure. If you consented to us keeping your personal data for a longer period of time (for future applications), we will retain your personal data for an additional year.
