In order to register on the EMPLOY Platform, the User may be asked to provide e-mail and to enter his/her password. After registration, the User may provide additional personal data to the User’s Account such as name or pseudonym, position, experience, photo. It should be noted that these fields are not marked as mandatory, hence the Users are not obliged to fill them /provide this information/. The EMPLOY Consortium ensures that the information requested to be mandatorily entered by the User, for registration on the EMPLOY Platform, is only the relevant and necessary information for registration, as the website is built in compliance with the requirements for data protection by design and data protection by default. 

While visiting the EMPLOY Platform or using our Services the Consortium is also processing online identifiers such as IP address, log files, and/or any other information necessary to reproduce electronic statements made by the User when using the Services of the EMPLOY Platform and for identification of the User in the event of a legal dispute. 

Also, if the User wants to subscribe to an EMPLOY event, he/she might be asked to fill in his/her email address. 

  1. Purposes of data processing

The above-mentioned categories of personal data are processed for the following purposes:

  • to ensure the proper functioning of the EMPLOY Platform, also ensure network and information security;
  • other purposes explicitly provided for in the Terms and Conditions of Use or in this Policy Privacy;
  • as well as for statistical purposes;

The EMPLOY Consortium undertakes the due care and bears responsibility for the protection of the User’s information, which has come to its notion in the conduct of provision of the Services, except in the event of force majeure events or Malicious Actions of third parties. 

  1. Legal basis for processing
  • Data subject has given consent to the processing of his/her personal data for a specific purpose;
  • Data processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the User is party, in cases where the Services available on our Website are provided to the User;

  • Data processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interest pursued by a Partner or the EMPLOY Consortium – as e.g.: in the event of a legal dispute; to prevent or investigate unauthorized access to the User account; to protect the User from malicious attacks and to ensure his/her personal safety;
  1. Recipients or categories of recipients of the personal data

The personal data of the User will only be disclosed to third parties in certain sporadic cases where the data controllers shall comply with a legal obligation or shall protect their rights. The EMPLOY Consortium may disclose the personal data of the User in cases where he/she has provided an explicit consent upon registration or at a later stage; or where this information is requested by state authorities, court bodies or officials that according to the applicable legislation are competent and authorized to request and obtain such information in compliance with the procedures established by law. In the event that the User or third parties under his/her control has performed Malicious Actions within the meaning of the Terms and Conditions of Use or have violated any rights or lawful interests of third parties, the EMPLOY Consortium shall be entitled to provide the relevant competent authorities with the User’s data in order to initiate the necessary legal procedures, in accordance with the applicable law. 

The above-mentioned categories of personal data are accessed solely by the Admins of the EMPLOY Platform.

The data controller does not intend to transfer the personal data of the User to data controllers or processors established in third countries or international organisations. 

Should the cases of data transfer to data controllers or processors in third parties or international organizations arise, the data controller shall keep the User informed. In any event, the transfer will be carried out in full compliance with the GDPR in respect of personal data transfer to third countries and only on the provision that the adequate level of protection is satisfied.

  1. Period for personal data storage

The personal data is stored on the EMPLOY Website, as long as the User is registered. After the User’s account is deleted, all personal data is immediately erased. Thus, the User Account shall no longer exist, and the account name will be anonymized, hence all the messages and posts on the EMPLOY Platform would not lead the identification of the data subject. 

The Users have the right to delete his/her own messages and or/posts, which means that this information would no longer be stored on the EMPLOY Platform. 

For reporting purposes, statistical data is kept for 5 years after the project end. The statistical data will not render any of the EMPLOY Website users identifiable.
