Which personal data do we process?

With regard to the personal data of our business partners and their representants, job applicants and other third persons, we are in a position of data controller. Please be aware that only personal data of natural persons are regulated by GDPR, not the data of the companies. Mostly we use identification and contact details only. Within the recruitment process we process all the personal data that are sent to us by the respective candidate.

How do we use your personal data?

VGP always ensures confidentiality, integrity and availability of the personal data processed. All the data are processed only for legitimate purpose and limited to what is necessary in relation to such purpose. We place a strong emphasis on appropriate security and organizational measures, including protection against unauthorized or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage. Our internal processes are regularly reviewed.

  • fulfilment of our contractual relationship, resp. the contractual relationship between VGP and your company;

This is our legitimate interest to let you know about our activities, however, you always have a right to withdraw from our list and raise an objection as described below.

If you subscribe for newsletters, we are happy to share our news with you until you decide to withdraw from our list of subscribers. You can do that at any time and it will be immediately taken into consideration. Further information is enclosed in each respective newsletter.

Recruitment Process

We use your name, email address, telephone number, country of residence, information about your professional interests, and any other details you choose to share with us when enclosing your application documents (including your CV) or when completing the form. We use the above data to manage your application and to contact you in matters related to your recruitment process.

If the position you applied for is filled by another candidate and we wish to keep your CV anyway, you are free to give us your consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time without any consequences. After withdrawing your consent, your data will not be used any more.

Who do we share your personal data with?

We share your personal data in the following cases:

  • when this is required by applicable laws, in particular at the request of the state authorities;
  • when this is necessary in pursuit of our needs, in particular by law firms or other members of VGP group.

In addition, your personal data may be shared with service providers – parties which process personal data at our request or on our behalf, such as providers of ICT services, such as hosting, and supply or maintenance of computer systems and applications. Your personal data are shared with service providers under data processing agreements whereby they are required to follow our instructions.

For how long do we process your personal data?

We process your personal data for as long as this is necessary to accomplish the specific purpose of processing. In some cases, we are obliged by the provisions of law to process personal data for a specific time (i.e. the obligation to retain contractual information after termination of a respective agreement). We will erase your data when we no longer need it to accomplish the purpose for which it was collected or after the expiry of the period specified in the provisions of law.

Do we transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area?

We do not transfer your data outside the EEA. Should this prove necessary in the future, we will always ensure appropriate personal data safeguards and will fulfil the obligations set forth in GDPR or related provisions of law.

Following such an objection, we will consider whether – on account of your particular situation – the protection of your interests, rights and freedoms overrides the interests we pursue in using your personal data. If your objection proves to be justified and there is no other legal basis for the use of the data, we will erase them.
