What kind of personal data do we use?
Zound Industries processes Candidates’ personal data that is relevant to Candidates’ job opportunities at Zound Industries.
Such personal data may broadly be grouped into the following categories:
Why do we use personal data and why do we have the right to do so?
The main purpose for us using the personal data is to manage our process for recruiting staff. The data is used to communicate with candidates, assess applications and descriptions and decide who to offer positions to. Personal data may also be used to coordinate applications internally across relevant Zound Industries companies.
The legal ground for this processing is our legitimate interest in managing the recruitment process. Zound Industries considers this legitimate interest to outweigh the individual’s interest in not having their personal data processed for this purpose.
Personal data processed for the purpose of future career opportunities is based on the Candidate’s consent.
Who do we share candidate data with?
We use externally provided IT-systems or services to facilitate the recruitment process. Personal data may be made available to such suppliers. Where this is the case, these are subject to appropriate data processing agreements.
Our suppliers may act as either data processors, i.e., processing personal data on our behalf, or as data controllers, i.e., processing data on their own behalf. Where our vendors act as data controllers, they are responsible for providing you with accurate information about their privacy practices. We encourage you to review that information carefully.
For EU citizens: Personal data may be provided to parties that are located outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”), for example if an applicant applies for a position with a Zound Industries group company that is not located in the EEA. In such cases, we will ensure that the personal data is subject to measures that provide an equivalent level of protection as provided by data privacy laws in the EU (such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation; GDPR). For further information about what safeguards we apply with respect to transfer to countries outside of the EEA, you may contact us on the details provided below under the Candidates’ rights and how to contact us section below.
Only persons involved in the recruiting of a specific Candidate will have access to that Candidate’s personal data. This may include persons in the HR department as well as other departments.
How long do we keep personal data?
Personal data is stored by us, or by other parties on our behalf, as long as necessary for the performance of our obligations and achieving the purposes for which the information was obtained.
The personal data will be removed from our records or properly anonymized when it is no longer needed. The main principle is that personal data pertaining to a job application will be deleted as soon as a decision has been made in respect of the job and any applicable
period to appeal or otherwise dispute the decision, e.g., based on discrimination, has expired.
If you have created an account with us, you can delete data registered in your account by yourself.
Where the processing of personal data is based on consent, we will retain the personal data encompassed for the validity term of the consent, which is twelve (12) months or until the consent is withdrawn.
How do we protect your personal data?
We have technical, administrative, and physical safeguards to protect your personal data from being processed unlawfully.
How do we collect your personal data?
For recruitment purposes, you will most likely provide us with the personal data we process. In some cases, we may process personal data related to you by visiting your social media platforms, namely LinkedIn, and by receiving recommendations from recruiters or colleagues.
