Issued: October 2019

Candidate Privacy Notice for Applications within the EEA

When you apply for a vacancy, Eyeota processes personal data in regards to processing your application for recruitment, and does so in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and applicable national laws, as further described in this Privacy Notice. 

This Privacy Notice applies to any personal data provided to Eyeota as related to your application and potential employment by Eyeota as referred to below. It applies to personal data that Eyeota, like any employer, needs to run our recruitment process and manage our relationship with you, at all stages of this. Your personal data will be processed to enable a range of purposes including general recruitment activities and the completion of our recruitment process including processing your application, candidate assessment, interviews, pre-employment screening, and your worker permissions.

Processing of personal data is necessary for the reasons set out in this Privacy Notice, unless we have specifically asked for your consent. If you wish to object to the processing of personal data relating to you, or require us to delete it, this could lead to us being unable to comply with the application process or other legal obligations. If so, we will tell you about the potential effects of our not having the proper data in those circumstances. 

Your Rights

You have a number of rights related to the processing of your personal data as part of the recruitment process. Please note information Eyeota has received from others or created internally may not be covered by your rights. 

  • To ask for access to your personal data; 
  • To ask for errors in your personal data to be corrected; 
  • To ask for your personal data to be erased (the "right to be forgotten"); 
  • To ask for us to restrict processing your personal data (e.g. if it is required to be kept for legal reasons)
  • To object to the processing of your personal data for specific purposes; 
  • To ask for a copy of your personal data to take (or have us provide) to another data controller

Consent is not usually required for the processing of personal data as it relates to a job application, however, where we do rely on any consent that you have given, you are always allowed to withdraw your consent at any time (though the processing that took place before withdrawal will still be legal). 

If for any reason, it is not possible for your rights to be exercised in full or at all, for example if related to applicable employment laws, we will provide full information on why any actions have or have not been taken. If you have any questions relating to the processing of your data, you may contact Eyeota using the information at the top of this policy. 

Please note: Eyeota also processes personal data in connection with its online advertising business, however that activity is not covered by this Privacy Notice. If you have questions regarding how Eyeota processes data for that purpose, or want to manage your choices in relation to that type of data, please consult Eyeota's specific Privacy Notice for that area.
