With applying and confirming this privacy policy, you confirm our use of your personal data. In this case, the legal basis is your consent pursuant to Article 6 (1)(a) GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time by letter or e-mail, so that the processing of your data for this purpose is no longer permitted from the time of receipt of your revocation. The lawfulness of the processing of your data until revocation remains unaffected by your revocation.

Disclosure of Your Information

Where you have applied for a job opening through the Smart Recruiters Apply functionality or any other job boards, and where you have consented to this disclosure, we will disclose to Smart Recruiters certain personal data that we hold, including but not limited to a unique identifier used by Smart Recruiters or any other job board to identify you, and information about your progress through our hiring process for the applicable job opening, as well as tangible, intangible, visual, electronic, present, or future information that we hold about you, such as your name, contact details and other information involving analysis of data relating to you as an applicant for employment (collectively “Disposition Data”).

The service provider shall be the data controller of this data and shall therefore be responsible for complying with all applicable law in respect of the use of that data following its transfer by us.

How We Store Your Personal Data


We take appropriate measures to ensure that all personal data is kept secure including security measures to prevent personal data from being accidentally lost or used or accessed in an unauthorized way. We limit access to your personal data to those who have a genuine organizational need to know it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorized manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted through any online means, therefore any transmission remains at your own risk.

Where we store your personal data in our own systems, it is stored on our secure servers within the EEA.

We will not otherwise transfer your personal data outside of Austria OR EEA or to any organization (or subordinate bodies) governed by public international law or which is set up under any agreement between two or more countries.
