Please read this Outfit7 Candidates Privacy Policy carefully to understand how and why your personal data will be used, namely for the purposes of the recruitment, and how long it will be retained for. It provides you with certain information that must be provided under the General Data Protection Regulation ((EU) 2016/679) (GDPR) and laws implementing or supplementing the GDPR; and to the extent applicable, the data protection or privacy laws of any other country (collectively: Data Protection Law).


We will comply with Data Protection Law, which means that your data will be:

  • Used lawfully, fairly and in a transparent way.
  • Collected only for valid purposes that we have clearly explained to you and not used in any way that is incompatible with those purposes.
  • Relevant to the purposes we have told you about and limited only to those purposes.
  • Accurate and kept up to date.
  • Kept only as long as necessary for the purposes we have told you about.
  • Kept securely.


In connection with your application to work with us, we may collect, store, and use the following categories of personal data about you:

  • The information you have provided on your application, including name, title, address, telephone number, personal email address, Skype name and LinkedIn profile;
  • The information you have provided in your curriculum vitae, covering letter and your portfolio or in your reference letters (if any);
  • The information about you that is available from a publicly accessible source (such as your profile on LinkedIn);
  • The information about your entitlement to work in the country where the local subsidiary is located;
  • The information whether you have a disability for which we need to make adjustments during the recruitment process;
  • The information you provide during your interview;
  • The results of your expertise tests and responses to behavioral and cognitive assessment questionnaires that you may undertake as part of your recruitment process with us;
  • The information from your ID or passport document (provided we need such information to organize a live interview or for other such reason during the recruitment process);
  • The information from your labor medical examination (provided you are considered as finalist for the position).


We collect personal data about you from variety of sources. For example, data are collected from you, the candidate, recruitment agencies and publicly accessible sources (e.g. your profile on LinkedIn).


We need to process your personal data to decide whether to enter into a contract of employment with you. We are relying on Article 6(1)(b) GDPR as legal ground for processing of your personal data.

We will use the personal data we collect about you for the following purposes:

  • Assessing your skills, qualifications, and suitability for the job position you are applying to (or for any job position we have open in the future in case you have sent us your application as a general inquiry or further consented to staying in contact with us);
  • Communicating with you about the recruitment process;
  • Keeping records related to our recruitment processes;
  • Complying with legal or regulatory requirements or for purposes connected to legal claims or proceedings.

Having received your application form, your CV and covering letter (and your portfolio and recommendation letters, if any) and the results from your expertise test, which you may be asked to complete, we process that information to decide whether you meet the basic requirements to be shortlisted for the role. If we decide to further consider you for the position, we may invite you to an interview and further to complete certain behavioral and cognitive assessment questionnaires. We will use such information to decide whether to offer you the position with us. If we consider you to be a finalist for the position, however, prior to making you an offer, you will be invited to undertake a medical examination with the authorized labor medicine center as required by local labor legislation.

If you fail to provide information when requested, which is necessary for us to consider your application (such as evidence of qualifications or work history), we may not be able to process your application properly or at all.


We will only share your personal data with our related companies within Outfit7 Group and our third-party service providers.

All our third-party service providers and related companies are required to take appropriate security measures to protect your personal data. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes. We only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

We may also share your personal data with any supervisory or any similar regulatory authority that is responsible for the enforcement of the Data Protection Law or other law enforcement authority upon their request.


We may transfer personal data received from you outside European Union (EU) and European Economic Area (EEA) where such transfer is of a type authorised by Data Protection Law in the exporting country, for example in the case of transfers from within the EU/EEA to a country (such as Switzerland) or scheme (such as the US Privacy Shield) which is approved by the Commission of EU as ensuring an adequate level of protection or any transfer which falls within a permitted derogation.


We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need-to-know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality. Details of these measures may be obtained if you write to gdpr@outfit7.com.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected data security breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.
