Privacy Policy

The protection of your data has top priority at PICKVOGEL.

We collect your data to make your search for a new challenge as easy and safe as possible. We know how sensitive personal information is. That's why we are committed to protecting it online. What you can do at any time: Decide how we collect and use your information. You can unsubscribe, change your preferences, or have any personal information removed at any time.

This Privacy Policy explains how we treat your personal information, whether we introduce ourselves to you, help you find a job, or continue our relationship with you after we find a job for you. Likewise, our privacy policy applies whether we provide you with a service, receive a service from you, use your information to ask for your assistance regarding candidates, or you visit our website.
What regulations do we comply with? We comply with the transparency rules set out in the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 ("GDPR") and with national implementing legislation.

What Data Do We Collect?

We collect your name, contact details and other relevant information that you have provided to us through various channels (such as correspondence, our website, in conversation), or that is derived directly from your resume. The data will only be used for the purposes set out in this policy. We may also obtain data from third parties to improve and personalize your user experience with us and to ensure that we find positions that are the best fit for you. In addition, other personal data about you may arise during the course of our relationship (e.g. via organizations to whom we have sent your resume and/or with whom you have been in contact).
To sign up for notifications for new career opportunities, you must provide us with your name and e-mail address. We will then use this information to keep you informed by e-mail of the latest job openings in your chosen industry, and to provide you with other services.

Further information about your resume:
You have the option to submit your resume via our platform, to enter your career data manually through our platform login, or to submit your resume to one of our staff members. This allows you to apply for specific opportunities, or give one of our consultants permission to consider your resume for future opportunities. We keep your resume securely and confidentially in our database so that an appropriate consultant can access it and provide you with the best possible service.
You can update your resume at any time via our platform or in collaboration with one of our staff members. Your old resume will be archived during this process.

How Do We Use Your Personal Data?

We use your personal data for Pickvogel's legitimate business purposes, as well as to provide you with the best possible service and to answer your questions. "You" are either a user of our website, a customer, or a candidate.
Legitimate business purposes include, but are not limited to

  • matching your information with opportunities in the job market, informing you of job openings, and sharing your information with clients for the purpose of introductions.
  • retaining your information for future career opportunities in order to keep you informed of such opportunities in the future.
  • enabling us to fulfill contractual obligations to our customers.
  • recording user behavior on our website (such as mouse clicks, scrolling, text entered in forms) in order to optimize the performance, usability and service of our website. The collected data will not be passed on to third parties, but will be stored internally and used for statistical purposes.
  • our aim to provide you with personalized content. This includes tailoring our recruitment services to you and therefore recording your use of and interaction with our website and e-mails.

Your personal data generally enables us to contact you and to inform you about news. You can control the frequency of e-mails or unsubscribe at any time.

How Long Do We Store Your Personal Data?

We store your personal data only as long as necessary. The length of this storage time depends on the services we provide to you. We often collaborate with candidates multiple times and for many years, placing them in new positions throughout their careers.
In addition, we perform regular data cleansing and updates to ensure that the data we have is relevant and accurate, and we do not retain data for too long.

Who do we share your personal information with?

We may share your information with all Pickvogel employees and trusted third parties to help us provide our service to you. In special circumstances, we may be required and obligated by a regulatory or law enforcement agency to disclose certain personal information.
For candidates, trusted third parties include our customers, to whom we share your personal information when they have open opportunities in which you are interested.
In addition, your sensitive personal information will be shared with trusted third parties to provide expected services to you or our clients. This includes verification of employment references and/or qualifications, skills testing, psychometric evaluations, criminal record checks where required by law and permitted under the GDPR/other laws, and verification of other information you have provided from third party sources. We will also share your personal data with trusted third parties who perform functions on our behalf, such as IT consultants (who perform development and testing work on our technology system), market research and mailing agencies, or data analytics providers. We require minimum standards of data protection and confidentiality from trusted third parties.

Security and passwords

When you register or log in to our site, you must use your username and a password. You are responsible for the security and proper use of the password, which must be kept confidential at all times and not disclosed to anyone. Notify us immediately if you believe that your password has come into the possession of another person or may be used in an unauthorized manner. Unfortunately, we cannot accept any liability for the unauthorized or improper use/disclosure of a password.

What rights do you have?

You have full control over your data. You have the right to access your data, data transmission, rectification/completion and deletion of personal data.

If you no longer wish to receive e-mails from us, you can unsubscribe from our communications. You may also contact us by e-mail, phone or mail and we will make this change for you. You may also review and adjust preferences regarding communications from us at any time.
Most of the above rights are subject to limitations or exceptions. If such limitations or exceptions apply to requests to exercise your rights, we will always provide you with reasons why.

You have the right to withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal data at any time.

Internet-based transmission

Since the internet is a global environment, the collection and processing of personal data inevitably involves the international transmission of data. Unfortunately, the transmission of data over the internet is not one hundred percent secure. While we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our website via third-party networks; all transmissions are at your risk. Once we receive the data, we apply strict procedures and security features in an effort to prevent unauthorized access.

Change of our privacy policy

This Privacy Policy is subject to change at any time. We will notify you of material changes or updates to our Privacy Policy by e-mail, should you have provided us with an e-mail address.
