If you request further copies of this information from us, we may charge you a reasonable administrative cost where legally permissible. Where we are legally permitted to do so, we may refuse your request. If we refuse your request we will always tell you the reasons for doing so. 
  • Please note that in certain of the jurisdictions in which we operate, we comply with additional local law requirements regarding data subject access requests and may refuse your request in accordance with such laws. For more information in relation to your jurisdiction.
  • Right to erasure:You have the right to request that we erase your personal data in certain circumstances. Normally, the information must meet one of the following criteria: 

- the data are no longer necessary for the purpose for which we originally collected and/or processed them;

- where previously given, you have withdrawn your consent to us processing your data, and there is no other valid reason for us to continue processing;

- the data has been processed unlawfully (i.e. in a manner which does not comply with the GDPR);

- it is necessary for the data to be erased in order for us to comply with our legal obligations as a data controller; or

- if we process the data because we believe it necessary to do so for our legitimate interests, you object to the processing and we are unable to demonstrate overriding legitimate grounds for our continued processing.
 

  • Please note that in certain of the jurisdictions in which we operate, we comply with additional local law requirements regarding data subject right to erasure and may refuse your request in accordance with local laws.
  • We would only be entitled to refuse to comply with your request for one of the following reasons: 

- to exercise the right of freedom of expression and information;

- to comply with legal obligations or for the performance of a public interest task or exercise of official authority;

- for public health reasons in the public interest;

- for archival, research or statistical purposes; or

- to exercise or defend a legal claim.

  • When complying with a valid request for the erasure of data we will take all reasonably practicable steps to Delete the relevant data.
  • Right to restrict processing:You have the right to request that we restrict our processing of your personal data in certain circumstances. This means that we can only continue to store your data and will not be able to carry out any further processing activities with it until either: (i) one of the circumstances listed below is resolved; (ii) you consent; or (iii) further processing is necessary for either the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, the protection of the rights of another individual, or reasons of important EU or Member State public interest. 
  • The circumstances in which you are entitled to request that we restrict the processing of your personal data are: 

- where you dispute the accuracy of the personal data that we are processing about you. In this case, our processing of your personal data will be restricted for the period during which the accuracy of the data is verified;

- where you object to our processing of your personal data for our legitimate interests. Here, you can request that the data be restricted while we verify our grounds for processing your personal data;

- where our processing of your data is unlawful, but you would prefer us to restrict our processing of it rather than erasing it; and

- where we have no further need to process your personal data but you require the data to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims.

  • If we have shared your personal data with third parties, we will notify them about the restricted processing unless this is impossible or involves disproportionate effort. We will, of course, notify you before lifting any restriction on processing your personal data.
  • Right to rectification:You also have the right to request that we rectify any inaccurate or incomplete personal data that we hold about you. If we have shared this personal data with third parties, we will notify them about the rectification unless this is impossible or involves disproportionate effort. Where appropriate, we will also tell you which third parties we have disclosed the inaccurate or incomplete personal data to. Where we think that it is reasonable for us not to comply with your request, we will explain our reasons for this decision.
  • Right of data portability:If you wish, you have the right to transfer your personal data between data controllers. In effect, this means that you are able to transfer your Hofmann Ltd. account details to another online platform. To allow you to do so, we will provide you with your data in a commonly used machine-readable format that is password-protected so that you can transfer the data to another online platform. Alternatively, we may directly transfer the data for you. This right of data portability applies to: (i) personal data that we process automatically (i.e. without any human intervention); (ii) personal data provided by you; and (iii) personal data that we process based on your consent or in order to fulfil a contract.
  • Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority:You also have the right to lodge a complaint with your local supervisory authority.
  • If you would like to exercise any of these rights, or withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal data (where consent is our legal basis for processing your personal data), details of how to contact us can be found down. Please note that we may keep a record of your communications to help us resolve any issues which you raise.
  • It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes during the period for which we hold your data.


  

WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR PROCESSING YOUR PERSONAL DATA ON THE HOFMANN LTD. WEBSITE?

  • Hofmann Ltd. is responsible for handling your personal data. You will find more detailed information below.
  • If you have any comments or suggestions concerning this Privacy Policy please contact us. We take privacy seriously so we'll get back to you as soon as possible. 
     

HOW DO WE STORE AND TRANSFER YOUR DATA INTERNATIONALLY?

  • So you want to know more about how we store and transfer your data internationally? In order to provide you with the best service and meet the goals described in this Privacy Policy, your data may be forwarded as described in the "How to Store and Transmend Your Data?"
  • We want to make sure that your data are stored and transferred in a way which is secure. We will therefore only transfer data outside of the European Economic Area or EEA (i.e. the Member States of the European Union, together with Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) where it is compliant with data protection legislation and the means of transfer provides adequate safeguards in relation to your data, for example: 

- by way of data transfer agreement, incorporating the current standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission for the transfer of personal data by data controllers in the EEA to data controllers and processors in jurisdictions without adequate data protection laws; or

- by signing up to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework for the transfer of personal data from entities in the EU to entities in the United States of America or any equivalent agreement in respect of other jurisdictions; or

- transferring your data to a country where there has been a finding of adequacy by the European Commission in respect of that country's levels of data protection via its legislation; or

- where it is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between ourselves and a third party and the transfer is in your interests for the purposes of that contract (for example, if we need to transfer data outside the EEA in order to meet our obligations under that contract if you are a Client of ours); or

- when you have consented to the data transfer.

  • To ensure that your personal information receives an adequate level of protection, we have put in place appropriate procedures with the third parties we share your personal data with to ensure that your personal information is treated by those third parties in a way that is consistent with and which respects the law on data protection. 

 

COOKIES POLICY

What's a cookie?

  • A "cookie" is a piece of information that is stored on your computer's hard drive and which records your navigation of a website so that, when you revisit that website, it can present tailored options based on the information stored about your last visit. Cookies can also be used to analyse traffic and for advertising and marketing purposes. 
  • Cookies are used by nearly all websites and do not harm your system. If you want to check or change what types of cookies you accept, this can usually be altered within your browser settings. We also provide information about this in our Marketing preferences page on the Hofmann Ltd. website.

 

How do we use cookies?

 

  • We use cookies to do two things: 

- to track your use of our website. This enables us to understand how you use the site and track any patterns that emerge individually or from larger groups. This helps us to develop and improve our website and services in response to what our visitors want and need; and

- to help us advertise opportunities to you that we think you'll be interested in. Hopefully this means less time for you trawling through endless pages and will get you into the employment you want more quickly.

  • Cookies are either: 

- Session cookies: these are only stored on your computer during your web session and are automatically deleted when you close your browser – they usually store an anonymous session ID allowing you to browse a website without having to log in to each page but they do not collect any information from your computer; or

- Persistent cookies: a persistent cookie is stored as a file on your computer and it remains there when you close your web browser. The cookie can be read by the website that created it when you visit that website again. We use persistent cookies for Google Analytics and for personalisation (see below).

  • Cookies can also be categorised as follows: 

- Strictly necessary cookies: These cookies are essential to enable you to use the website effectively. Without these cookies, the services available to you on our website cannot be provided. These cookies do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you have been on the internet.

- Performance cookies: These cookies enable us to monitor and improve the performance of our website. For example, they allow us to count visits, identify traffic sources and see which parts of the site are most popular.

- Functionality cookies: These cookies allow our website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced features. For instance, we may be able to provide you with news or updates relevant to the services you use. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, font and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have requested such as viewing a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect is usually anonymised.

- Personalisation cookies: These cookies help us to advertise details of potential opportunities that we think may be of interest. These cookies are persistent (for as long as you are registered with us) and mean that when you log in or return to the website, you may see advertising for opportunities that are similar to that you have previously browsed.

OUR LEGAL BASES FOR PROCESSING YOUR DATA

 

LEGITIMATE INTERESTS

  • Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR is the one that is relevant here – it says that we can process your data where it "is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by [us] or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights or freedoms of [you] which require protection of personal data." 
  • We don't think that any of the following activities prejudice individuals in any way – in fact, they help us to offer you a more tailored, efficient service, so everyone's a winner! However, you do have the right to object to us processing your personal data on this basis. If you would like to know more about how to do so, please roll down.
  • Please note that in certain of the jurisdictions in which we operate, a different legal basis for data processing might apply in certain cases. For more information in relation to your jurisdiction, please roll down.

 

CONSENT

  • In certain circumstances, we are required to obtain your consent to the processing of your personal data in relation to certain activities. Depending on exactly what we are doing with your information, this consent will be opt-in consent or soft opt-in consent. 
  • Article 4(11) of the GDPR states that (opt-in) consent is "any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject's wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her." In plain language, this means that: 

- you have to give us your consent freely, without us putting you under any type of pressure;

- you have to know what you are consenting to – so we'll make sure we give you enough information;

- you should have control over which processing activities you consent to and which you don’t. We provide these finer controls within our privacy preference centre; and

- you need to take positive and affirmative action in giving us your consent – we're likely to provide a tick box for you to check so that this requirement is met in a clear and unambiguous fashion.

We will keep records of the consents that you have given in this way.

  • We have already mentioned that, in some cases, we will be able to rely on soft opt-in consent. We are allowed to market products or services to you which are related to the recruitment services we provide as long as you do not actively opt-out from these communications.
  • Please note that in certain of the jurisdictions in which we operate, we comply with additional local law requirements regarding consenting to receive marketing materials. For more information in relation to your jurisdiction.
  • As we have mentioned, you have the right to withdraw your consent to these activities. You can do so at any time, and details of how to do so can be found bellow.
     

ESTABLISHING, EXERCISING OR DEFENDING LEGAL CLAIMS

  • No sensitive personal information is stored.
  • Sometimes it may be necessary for us to process personal data and, where appropriate and in accordance with local laws and requirements, sensitive personal data in connection with exercising or defending legal claims. Article 9(2)(f) of the GDPR allows this where the processing "is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or whenever courts are acting in their judicial capacity".
  • This may arise for example where we need to take legal advice in relation to legal proceedings or are required by law to preserve or disclose certain information as part of the legal process.
