Labourlink BV Privacy statement

As of 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) shall apply. This means that from
now on, the same privacy legislation applies throughout the European Union (EU). The GDPR
ensures, among other things, that your data is processed even more carefully. Organizations,
including ours, have to provide more clarity as to why we collect your personal data, for what we are
using it and how long the data will be stored. We must also provide candidates with access to the
stored data, if they so wish. The moment you choose to provide us with information voluntarily, for
example by applying for a position with us, we will use this information in accordance with our
Privacy statement.

Why do we collect your personal data?

The reason we collect and register the data has to do with our services in the form of temporary
employment, outsourcing, payroll and recruitment and selection. Specifically, we will use the data in:

  • Making an offer and/or providing information about the services and other activities, and
    being able to tailor it better to your wishes and qualities, this is done by our employees;
  • Identifying your suitability and availability in order to be able to assess this in connection
    with mediation into fixed or temporary work or an assignment;
  • Engaging and maintaining an employee or personnel/mediation relationship with you, and to
    do the relevant administration for this;
  • Enabling us to determine your identity;
  • Enabling us to comply with our obligations with regard to our reintegration obligations, and
    to help people at a great(er) distance to the labour market, to work;
  • Enabling us to receive an order confirmation, and to draw up a subsequent agreement. And,
    of course, to comply with what has been agreed to;
  • The data is also used to stimulate your personal development and employability through
    training, education and testing;
  • For management purposes such as management information, providing internal inspections,
    operational safety and performing audits and accounting inspections, if we have entered into
    an employee or personnel/mediation relationship with you;
  • To do the (deductions for) income tax and payroll and pension administration (including
    wage declarations with the tax authorities).

We only process the personal data necessary for our service; part of this data is required to make use
of our services. Additional information may be desirable in order to better tailor the service to your
wishes and qualities or to meet more specific questions or obligations from clients. In addition, it
