Our policy and procedures outlined in this notice have been developed in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679, in force from 25 May 2018, and applicable laws.

By providing your personal data to ED as part of your expression of interest and/ or application for recruitment and as part of the recruitment process, you confirm that you acknowledge this privacy notice.

In such cases, ED may not be able to assess your application and consider whether you are suitable for a position, nor will it be able to further proceed with the recruitment.

1. What information do we process?

With the word "processing" we mean any operation performed on personal data including the collection, recording, storage, consultation, use, making available, erasure or destruction of such data.

2. What is the source of this information?

We obtain this information directly from you, our personnel, through our systems and equipment, as well as from third parties such as recruitment agencies, background checking companies or former employers. Information may be generated also during the recruitment process, for example during interviews, and evaluation tests. We may also obtain it from your public profiles available online.

3. Why do we process your information?

We process your information differently in the three consecutive phases of the recruitment process:

a) The period from the announcement of openings and/or the submission of a request for recruitment from the job applicant: During this phase, we only collect and store securely any information you have submitted to us, in order to be assessed for recruitment purposes.

b) The period from our first contact up to the final decision on recruitment or not: During this phase, we process your personal information to make recruitment decisions.

c) The period starting from the recruitment decision onwards: If the decision is positive, then we use your personal information in order to conclude a contract with you and we continue to process your data for the performance of such contract. However, if the decision is not positive, then we process your information in two ways:

  1. We store securely your information and a record of all related communication related to the recruitment process that was undertaken for the specific job application, in order to protect our legitimate interests as detailed further below; and
  2. Conditionally, based upon your consent, we will process your contact information, skills, and experience with the sole purpose to notify you if similar openings become available in the future.

4. What is the legal basis of the processing?

In line with the provisions of the GDPR, our processing of your personal data is based upon a specific legal basis, as follows:

a) During all recruitment phases, for compliance with the legal obligations to which we are subject; for example to record your consent in line with the requirements of the GDPR and/ or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

b) During the first and the second recruitment phase, in order to fulfil your request for recruitment towards the establishment of a contract with you.

c) During the second and third recruitment phase, for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us, taking into account where such interests may be overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of you.

d) To be able to notify you about new openings, based on your consent. We maintain your contact information, skills, and experience to be able to propose to you relevant employment opportunities in the future. You may withdraw your consent regarding the processing of your data for proposals in the context of such future opportunities at any time, in the same way you provided us with your consent in the first place (e.g. via email).

To clarify, in case c above, we process your personal data indicatively for the following reasons:

  • to enable us to comply with the legal, regulatory, or contractual obligations we have;
  • to prevent, detect, and report fraud, misrepresentation, and other wrongdoing;
  • to establish, exercise or defend our legal claims;
  • for quality assurance purposes; and
  • to manage risks.

EUROPEAN DYNAMICS ensures that personal data is processed in confidence, it is not disclosed to unauthorised third parties and is treated with the highest security.
