This privacy notice (‘Privacy Notice’) (together with other documents referred to herein) describes what personal information we collect from you and how we collect, use and process it.
We know it is long, but please read this Privacy Notice carefully.
There is an index below so you can go straight to the relevant section if you prefer.
First, we need to be clear about how we use some words in this Privacy Notice.
It may seem obvious, but in this Privacy Notice, you will be referred to as "You".
When we talk about 'us' or the 'Company' we mean Adecco Group Netherlands. We have our registered office at Hogeweg 123, 5301 LL Zaltbommel. The Company is part of the Adecco Group AG (Adecco Group) with company headquarters at Bellerivestrasse 30, 8008 Zurich, Switzerland, the largest HR services provider in the world. Through its various companies and business lines, the Adecco Group provides several HR (Human Resources) activities like staffing, secondment, payroll services, recruitment & selection, testing solutions, career transition, talent development, training & education, outplacement and international mobility ("our Activities’").
To carry out our Activities the Company uses several IT systems. In some cases, the Company provides a Self-Service Portal ("Portal") for its clients. The Portal allows you to manage the relationship with the Company and its sister companies and look for candidates that fit your needs.
Finally, this Privacy Notice is about how we process your information as an individual. It is not about how we process information about companies (although sometimes the two overlap). This type of information is sometimes called ‘personal information’, ‘personally identifiable information’ or ‘PII’. We use the term 'personal information' or 'data' in this Privacy Notice.
We collect and use the information to provide the best possible opportunities that are tailored to you, which we have grouped as follows:
a) Identity Data means your first name and last name.
b) Professional Data means your professional email address, professional phone number, company name, company address and phone number, job title, department, service, location of your office and other information that could be on your business card, and power of attorney.
d) Contact Forms Data means any information you provide to us when you use our contact forms (for example using the “Contact”, “Send us a Message” or “Stay in touch” functions on our websites, apps, products or services), the record of that correspondence and other information or personal information you share with us when completing our contact forms in your sole discretion. (Please note that fields marked with an asterisk (*) are mandatory fields because we need this information to comply with or respond to your request.)
e) Marketing Communications Data means information about how you respond to email, SMS, phone and other marketing campaigns.
We use the information you provide to deliver our products and services, to send you information that you requested, or to contact you to provide additional information on our available products and services as more particularly detailed in section 3 below.
We process your data within the scope of an existing business relationship with you or your company because:
In any case, where we send marketing communications to you via email, you may opt-out of receiving any further marketing communications by clicking the ‘unsubscribe’ or ‘opt-out’ function in the email.
In addition, you can also exercise your opt-out right at any time by contacting us here (please indicate the marketing communications you would like to opt-out of receiving in the Request Details field).
The personal information we collect about you comes from contact forms or other materials you submit to us, your interactions with us and others as part of your business relationship with us. Depending on the relevant circumstances and applicable local laws and requirements, we may collect some of the information listed in Section 2 when you provide us with your business card, talk to us at a conference or other event, or if you are a customer or prospective customer.
In some cases, we will also collect personal information indirectly from publicly available sources by applicable law.
Yes, we do use artificial intelligence (AI) at times. However, we do not use your personal information in any automated decision-making (a decision made solely by the creation and application of technologies without any human intervention) or profiling (processing of personal information with a range of technologies that produces a legal effect or similarly significant effect concerning you.
We use a range of technologies to analyse your data. In all cases, there is always human intervention in these processes, as we use these tools to support our expert human decision-makers.
We use automated systems/processes with the conditions described in the previous paragraph to help our staff navigate the market and consult you with the best-informed data as possible. We might use AI (for instance machine-learning, logic- or knowledge-based and statistical approaches) to provide you, and our applicants as well as associates, with the services you request from us. While we do use AI systems, all decisions which may affect you are taken by our trained recruiters. Accordingly, these AI systems do not have legal effects.
For example, when we are looking for candidates for your open positions, we can leverage historical data as well as actual market data to build a comparison of market-relevant information using machine-learning, logic- or knowledge-based and statistical approaches which uses attributes like salary data, location, working conditions as well as actual candidate market comparisons to compile a report about the average conditions for your region. With this report our sales consultants can navigate together with you how to attract the staff you need in the best possible way.
To facilitate our efficient use of your information and to provide you with the content and/or resources and/or services, we disclose your information to third parties. However, this disclosure will only occur in the following circumstances:
