Plesner recruitment policy

In connection with Plesner's recruitment process we will process your personal data. Plesner is controller with respect to the personal data collected and examined in connection with the processing of your application.

We use a recruitment platform in connection with the recruitment process. The purpose of using the platform is to make the recruitment process easier both for you and for Plesner. When using the recruitment platform Plesner receives personal data from the applicants, and such data will be processed in the course of the assessment of the applicant's skills and qualifications in relation to the relevant position.

In the following we describe the purposes for which we process your personal data as well as the legal basis for doing so having regard to the General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") and the Danish Data Protection Act ("DPA").

1 Processing of personal data

The personal data we process will be the data you provide (or which are provided by a referee) and will comprise: application, CV, references, transcripts of grades, and any other documents which you provide voluntarily. Your sensitive personal data will not be processed. Please cross out any personal identification numbers included in grade reports etc; we do not need to know your personal identification number.

We process your personal data based on the legitimate interests rule (GDPR, Article 6(1)(f)). The legitimate interest is to be able to process your application and to keep your personal data with a view to a subsequent recruitment process.
In the course of the recruitment process you will be asked to complete tests, and such tests will be included in our assessment of your application. The legal basis for this processing is your consent (GDPR Article 6(1)(a)). Therefore, you will also be asked to provide a criminal record certificate during the recruitment process. In this connection, the legal basis is consent (DPA, section 8, see GDPR, Article 10).
The legal basis for processing your personal data is your request that we review your application and your CV prior to the formation of an employment contract (GDPR Article 6(1)(b). 

2 Storage and erasure

We will keep your data until the position in question has been filled. If you are offered a position with Plesner your data will be transferred to a personnel file and Plesner's erasure policy will apply to it.

If you are not offered a position we will, based on a legitimate interest (GDPR Article 6(1)(4)), keep your data for up to six months after our rejection of your application, following which they will be erased.

If you have sent an unsolicited application to us, you will receive an email from us asking for your consent to keep your application for six months if we believe that a relevant position may become vacant at a later stage.

3 Your rights

You have the right to contact us and request access, rectification or erasure of your personal data which we are processing.

You can revoke your consent at any time. Withdrawal of consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing performed prior to such withdrawal. Finally, you have the right to receive the personal data that you have provided in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format (data portability). 

Please note that conditions or restrictions may apply in relation to these rights.

4 Filing of complaints

You also have the right to oppose processing or to request restriction of the processing, and to file a complaint with the Danish Data Protection Agency.
