We ensure that all personal data collected is processed fairly, competently, in compliance with legal provisions and to the benefit of the Candidates. We take the obligation to respect personal data very seriously.

Personal data is collected to facilitate the recruitment process. The data will include the information provided in the form of CV (e.g. surname, first name, address, professional experience, etc.). Providing such information (including extremely sensitive personal data), a candidate agrees for the data to be used to streamline the recruitment process, also to his or her benefit as well as with reference to the conditions of Privacy Policy and in compliance with the Act of 29 August 1997 on Personal Data Protection (Journal of Laws, No. 133, item 833). If there is no need to obtain very “sensitive data” from the candidate (such as health condition/disability, race/ethnic origin, trade union membership, conviction of an offence), and it is the candidate who decides about providing the data, he or she is thereby giving his or her express consent for the processing of such data in compliance with the Privacy Policy and the Act of 29 August 1997 on Personal Data Protection (Journal of Laws, No. 133, item 833).

Personal data can be accessed by our employees worldwide, regardless of a branch of our company they work at, as well as by potential employers or customers for the purposes listed below. Potential employers or customers may be located both in the EU countries and outside the EU according to the needs reported by the candidates. In case of transfer of personal data outside the EU, certain measures shall be taken to ensure that the right to confidentiality of the data is still protected according to the Privacy Policy.

Personal data shall be divulged in good faith if legal regulations require the disclosure of the data following the detection of a criminal offence or tax and debt collection due to the necessity of compliance with the applicable legal provisions, with reference to a court order or an order issued by any other competent jurisdiction, or in connection with legal procedures.

We are legally obliged to store personal data as long as it is necessary to observe statutory and contractual obligations of the company and according to its legitimate rights, resulting from its ability to control them. All due effort will be taken to ensure that the data is maintained and updated; irrespective thereof, a candidate is obliged to inform us about any changes concerning personal data to provide the necessary update accordingly. In order to receive information about the status of the stored personal data or to submit, modify, or remove any of the personal data from the database, please contact us by email at

If the candidate fails to contact us, the data shall be archived or removed after the specified (considered to be relevant) period has expired.

After the relevant period has expired, we contact our candidates to ask them if they wish to keep the data stored in our database. Unless a candidate expresses his or her willingness to keep the data stored by logging to the website, the data shall be archived.

Personal data is stored on secure servers that belong to HAYS or the Internet service provider. Due to a specific nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee the complete safety of the information sent to us over the Internet. No data transmission over the Internet is 100% safe.

The candidates shall be informed about such data transfer and they shall be allowed to refrain from further cooperation.
