In addition, in order to properly consider the application, the Controller may in some cases supplement the data collected from the candidate with further information, also in order to verify the data already collected by consulting the candidate’s professional profile on publicly available professional portals, such as data on the candidate’s skills, experience, education or previous jobs available on this profile.  

Anshar may also collect personal data about the candidate from sources other than directly from the candidate or from the candidate’s profile on the professional portal (Article 14 GDPR). In this case, consent will be obtained from the candidate for the processing of such data in each case. 

Anshar does not process the special categories of personal data within the scope of the recruitment process.

An exception to this is where you have given us your consent to process your personal data for future recruitment processes – in this case, your personal data will be processed in subsequent recruitment processes for the same or a similar position, but for no longer than 1 year after you have given your consent, as well as when we are required by law to keep your personal data for longer.

In relation to the processing of your personal data by the Controller, you have the right to: 

  1. object to the processing of your data where the basis for the processing is the legitimate interest of the Controller in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.

  1. Subjecting your data to automated decision-making, including profiling 

Your data will not be subjected to automated decision-making, including profiling, i.e. no decisions producing legal effects on you or similarly significantly affecting you will be based on automated decision-making. 


  1. Transferring your personal data outside the EEA 

Due to the fact that Anshar uses IT tools whose suppliers are based outside the European Economic Area, when it is not possible to choose the location of data storage within the EEA, your data may be transferred outside the EEA. In such cases, Anshar shall verify in advance in each case whether contractors located outside the EEA ensure a high level of protection of personal data and whether an adequate level of protection of personal data is guaranteed by the legislation of the third country to which personal data would be transferred (including, in particular, whether the European Commission has issued a decision finding an adequate level of protection of personal data in such country). The safeguards applied by us in such cases include, in particular, the use of standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission. Anshar shall also provide appropriate technical safeguards in each case. 


In order to obtain a copy of the European Commission’s decision or standard contractual clauses from Anshar, you may contact us using the data indicated under point II. 


  1. Changes to this Policy 

Anshar may modify or update this Policy when necessary to reflect changes in our recruitment process, so, please review it periodically. When we update this policy, we will revise the “Last Updated” date at the top of the statement.
