Personal data that we process

We process your personal data as you use our services, such as our recruitment platform, and/or because you provide us these data.

Below you can find an overview of the (personal) data that we process:

  • For jobseekers : First name(s), surname, residential address, town/city, postal code, gender, date of birth, curriculum vitae (such as previous employment experiences), diplomas, (personal) email address, (personal) telephone number; nationality, education information and any other information you provide to us, amongst other, in your curriculum vitae.
  • For employer representatives : company name, contact's surname, contact's first name(s), company address, location, postal code, (business) e-mail address, (business) telephone number.
  • Other types of personal data as far as:
    • (i) Required by law. For example, transferring personal data to governmental bodies, such as the police, inspection- or tax authorities and/or to comply with bookkeeping (tax) laws and regulations applicable to legal entities; or,
    • (ii) You provided consent. For example, when you choose to accept that we place cookies on your computer hardware; or,
    • (iii) You voluntarily provided additional personal data. For example, when registering on our websites, as a jobseeker, you can choose to create your profile with (data from) your social media profile (facebook, linkedin, google etc). This is not mandatory as you are free to decide to create your profile manually.

We do not intend to process special categories of personal data and/or sensitive personal data. It may occur that we indirectly store your personal data relating to, for example, the situation where you performed charity work or worked as a volunteer at a church, political party or trade union. But this takes place because we process your resume in order to create your profile and/or link you to a potential employer and such information will be captured as work experience. We than process that data to have a general impression of your employment history. The fact that this might happen to say something about your possible religion, political views or trade union membership is irrelevant to us. Seen in that context and for that purpose, we do not process any special categories or personal data.

Purpose of this processing of personal data

We process information, including personal data to:

  • Clearly and correctly communicate with you via any contact details you provide, such as, but not limited to calls, texts, WhatsApp and email;
  • Map supply and demand on the labour market;
  • Provide you with the opportunity to create your own personal profile as a jobseeker and making the database with these jobseeker profiles available to employers through our recruitment platforms;
  • Provide employers with a platform on which they can upload open vacancies and make the database with these open vacancies available to jobseekers through our recruitment platforms;
  • Provide job search and recruitment services to jobseekers and employers when using our websites and our recruitment platforms;
  • Match you, as a jobseeker, to outstanding vacancies from our clients (and possibly your next employer);
  • Provide jobseekers with general information about working abroad;
  • Collect anonymous statistical data for (potential) clients.
  • Train our personnel and to improve the quality of our services and conversations with you. For this purpose, recordings of telephone conversations you have with us may be used. A trainer will listen to the recorded telephone conversation and discuss with our employee what is going well and what could be improved.

Legitimate grounds for the processing of personal data by Yobbers

At Yobbers, we only process personal data as a data controller if one or more of the following legitimate grounds of the GDPR apply:

A. You gave clear consent for the processing activity,

meaning that personal data can be processed if you have given freely, specific and informed consent.

Yobbers makes it possible for you to withdraw previously granted consent at any time. Withdrawing such previously granted consent will not affect the lawfulness of the processing activities that took place immediately prior to the moment the consent was withdrawn.

Processing activities for which your consent is required include, for example:

  • sending newsletters to you and provide you with updates on our services and product portfolio;
  • use of specific (non-functional, non-analytical) cookies on Yobbers' websites.

B. Processing your personal data because you and Yobbers have (or could enter into) a contract,

meaning that the processing is necessary for the performance of an agreement to which you are a party or for taking pre-contractual actions requested by you and which are necessary for entering into a possible agreement.

Processing activities we perform based on this legitimate ground are, for example:

  • Provide you with the opportunity to create your own personal profile as a jobseeker and making the database with these jobseeker profiles available to employers through our recruitment platforms;
  • Provide employers with a platform on which they can upload open vacancies and make the database with these open vacancies available to jobseekers through our recruitment platforms;
  • Processing your requests, as a jobseeker or employer for more information about Yobbers' services and product portfolio.

In order to use the Yobbers services and recruitment platforms, jobseekers must create an account as described on our websites. Completing the process of creating an account, for which your personal data is required, is part of the agreement between you as a jobseeker and Yobbers. If you do not complete the process of creating an account (part of which is also uploading your cv), we cannot grant you access to our recruitment platform as a jobseeker and you will not be able to apply on the outstanding vacancies posted by employers.

C. Processing your personal data is mandatory according to applicable law,

meaning that the processing activity is necessary in order to comply with a legal obligation to which Yobbers is subject.

Processing activities we perform based on this legitimate ground are, for example:

  • transferring personal data to governmental bodies, such as the police, inspection- or tax authorities, as is the case when we suspect fraudulent activities or other criminal offences;
  • bookkeeping (tax) laws and regulations applicable to legal entities, as well as (internal) auditing.

D. Processing your personal data in the pursuance of a legitimate interest of Yobbers,

meaning that the processing is necessary for legitimate interests pursued by Yobbers or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms which require protection of personal data.

Processing activities we perform based on this legitimate ground are, for example:

  • general customer relationship management, communication and information provision, such as answering your questions or requests regarding IT-issues;
  • IT-security and preventing illegitimate access to our (IT-)assets and investigating fraud and/or other (suspected) criminal offences;

Analytics and/or internet data

Yobbers uses automatic generated data for statistical purposes, as well as for the protection and improvement of the work, services and the websites of Yobbers. This information is provided to third parties provided they are processed on an aggregated level and not personally identifiable to you, the user of our websites and recruitment platforms.

The Yobbers websites automatically collects certain non-directly identifiable information about the visitors of its websites, including the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer from visitors, date and time of access to the website, the internet address of the website from which the visitor is redirected to the website of Yobbers, the IP address of the Internet Service Provider of the visitor, the visitor's operating system, the parts, information and pages of the website that the visitor has visited and/or viewed, as well as the material forwarded or downloaded by the visitor of the websites.

We use Google Analytics on our websites. This is a piece of software we deploy to collect statistics on visitor numbers, visited web pages and traffic sources and to run reports. The purpose of this is to improve the Yobbers websites for visitors and to give us insight into how our website is performing.

These statistics are not used by Yobbers to create insights on the level of an individual person. We are in theory able to identify you as an individual from this dataset based on identifiers such as user-id, which we share with Google. However, Yobbers does not process personal data for in this context to create insights for each and every person individually, as the data is available to us on an aggregated level, and that is how it creates value for us. The information that you enter and upload via our websites, for example in our contact form or the content of your cv, is never processed in Google Analytics. When you visit our websites, your web browser automatically shares your IP address and the URL of the webpage you visit with Google. With regard to this processing of personal data, Google is the controller within the meaning of article 4 (7) GDPR. Yobbers has no role whatsoever in these processing activities.

Information regarding the processing activities performed by Google can be found here.

Purpose of the processing analytics and/or internet data

This technical information is used for the management of the website and for improvement of the website and services of Yobbers. In addition, this data can be used for historical, statistical or scientific purposes. This information may be passed on to third parties in so far as it is not personally identifiable to you.

Automated decision making

We do not take decisions on the basis of automated processing or technologies on matters that may have (considerable) impact on people, such as the assessment whether or not to match you, as a jobseeker, to the vacancy of an employer. We are talking about decisions taken by computer programs, algorithms or IT-systems, without any human (for example, one of our employees) interference.

How long we store personal data

We will retain your personal data no longer than is strictly necessary to the purposes for which your information is collected. If you are a jobseeker and no longer wish to use our services, you can simply decide to delete your account. We will process such request for account deletion right away, but due to our internal data recovery procedures it may occur that certain account information is still retained on back-up hardware equipment for a maximum of 4 years. After that period, your account, including all personal data contained therein, will be fully removed.

Other personal data shall be retained no longer than necessary for the purpose for which it was collected, for the exercise of legal tasks and fulfilling legal obligations or the execution of agreements (think of limitation periods), but of course, in accordance with the applicable legal retention periods.

As an example: we are legally obliged to store financial data, such as invoices for at least 7 years, due to Dutch tax laws and regulations.

We retain contact information (for sending newsletters/mailing list information purposes) until you unsubscribe or request that we delete that information. If you decide to unsubscribe from a mailing list, we may keep certain limited information about you so that we may honor your request.

Processing in our group

We process and (share) your personal data within the group to which Yobbers belongs and then only with employees who are authorized to process this data. All our employees are subject to secrecy. The group to which Yobbers belongs consists of Yobbers B.V. and Yobbers Group B.V.

Sharing of personal data with third parties

We do not sell your personal data to third parties and will only share (personal) data if needed for the execution of our agreement with you, to improve our website (where possibly your IP-address is processed), to comply with a legal obligation, or in case we have a legitimate interest in doing so, which are not outweighed by your (data protection) rights.

With companies that process your data on our behalf, we enter into a data processing agreement to ensure an appropriate level of security and confidentiality of your personal data. We remain responsible for this personal data processing.

We are doing business with companies in countries outside the EEA. If we transfer personal data to third parties located outside the EEA and if no adequate level of protection is present, we continue to monitor the processing of personal data and we use legal transfer mechanisms to ensure that the personal data are sufficiently protected. We do this by using the standard data protection clauses adopted by the European Commission or other safeguards meeting the requirements of the GDPR for transfers of personal data outside the EEA.
