Your Career – Declaration of Consent
As part of our Services, we specialize in the global search, placement and integration of candidates for a wide range of positions (each a “Candidate”) on behalf of our clients (“Client Services”).
In the event you are interested in becoming a Candidate, you can provide us with information on your personal and professional background (“Candidate Information”) that we will, subject to our sole discretion, take into consideration as part of the Client Services. On our web page, you may answer our questions regarding your personal and professional background and upload your CV or resume in Microsoft Word or PDF format.
Providing any Candidate Information is purely voluntary on your part. Although it is generally true that, the more information you share with us, the better we are able to assess your potential suitability for an open executive or similar management position, we urge you not to disclose to us any Candidate Information that is likely of little or no relevance or may not even be legally considered as part of common hiring processes. This applies, in particular, to Sensitive Personal Information.
If and to the extent you share Candidate Information with us through the Site or by email, we might follow up with you using the contact details you may have provided in order to clarify any questions we might have or obtain complementary information from you. In addition, we might conduct assessments of your professional profile and perform searches for information on your personal and professional life publicly available via social media services (e.g. Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc.), on the Internet or within data you have previously disclosed to us, provided that such information might be of importance to your qualification for a particular position. Any resulting information will be considered Candidate Information and be Processed as described below together with the Candidate Information you initially provided us with through the Site. Your Candidate Information will mainly be Processed by and on behalf of Salespower International. However, depending on how and where the Client Services need to be performed in your individual case, your Candidate Information might, in addition, be Processed by and on behalf of our affiliated network in countries throughout the world – puretalentgroup Network.
Your Candidate Information Processed by Salespower International might contain (a) your contact details (name, address, phone number, email address, etc.), (b) your biographical data, (c) information on your professional education, and (d) your educational credentials, professional diplomas and certificates. In addition, it may contain (e) your employment and compensation history, (f) data on your suitability for client opportunities we compile as part of our assessments of your professional profile, (g) information on your personal and professional life publicly available via social media services (e.g. Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc.) or otherwise on the Internet that might be of importance to your qualification for a particular position, and (h) any Sensitive Personal Information you might choose to disclose to us.
Your Candidate Information will be shared with third parties as follows:
- Your Candidate Information will be stored in databases in Austria, Germany and the United States. The servers hosting the databases are third-party providers operated by and accessible to members of Salespower International. The third-party service providers include Microsoft Corporation.
- Via the databases, your Candidate Information will be available to the consultants and administrative staff in the Salespower International Network for the purposes of providing the Client Services;
- Subject to our discretion, we might disclose excerpts of your Candidate Information such as your professional education and employment history with particular clients in order to confirm whether they might be interested in you as a Candidate with respect to an opening for a position they have informed us of. The information disclosed will be limited to what is necessary for this purpose. We will not disclose the entirety of your Candidate Information or otherwise introduce you to any client in detail without first obtaining separate and specific consent from you.
As part of the Client Services, your Candidate Information may be Processed for the purposes of (a) executing searches for potential Candidates on behalf of clients that have an opening, (b) assessing your suitability for client opportunities, (c) informing you of open positions potentially suitable for you, (d) introducing you to clients as a Candidate and potential future member of their management, and of (e) verifying your educational credentials, professional diplomas and certificates. In addition, your Candidate Information may be Processed for the purposes of (f) performing searches for information on your personal and professional life publicly available via social media services (e.g. Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc.), on the Internet or within data you have previously disclosed to us, provided that such information might be of importance to your qualification for a particular position.
At no point will your Candidate Information be matched, linked or otherwise connected with Personal Information collected through other components of the Site for purposes other than providing Client Services. Your Candidate Data will be Processed until you revoke your declaration of consent given when sharing Candidate Data with us through the Site. Upon the revocation of your declaration of consent, we will delete your Candidate Data from all databases.
By sharing your Candidate Information with us through this Site or by email, you explicitly consent to the Processing of your Candidate Information, including any Sensitive Personal Information you might choose to disclose to us, as described above. This includes, without limitation, the transfer of your Candidate Information, or parts thereof, to countries not providing an adequate level of protection of personal data. You acknowledge that you are under no obligation to provide your consent and that, if you choose to do so nonetheless, you may revoke your declaration of consent at any time with future effect by using the following contact details: firstname.lastname@example.org
