Such information is provided in job advertisements which specify that the recruitment process is conducted on behalf of the client.

This means that your personal data will be securely stored in Seargin’s database, and will be used to provide you with information on job positions that are tailored to your unique profile and professional experience

The User may withdraw consent to further processing of personal data. It may be done if the withdrawal does not affect the legal use of personal data in activities conducted on the basis of the consent granted before the withdrawal. Personal data may be also processed if the User has been recommended by another person. In such a case, the recommending person enters their own personal data, data of the recommended person with his/her CV. Seargin verifies the received CV taking into consideration the consent, that meets the requirements of the GDPR, of the recommended person to process his/her personal data. If such consent has been granted, Seargin has permission to use the data for recruitment process purposes.

2.2 Processing of personal data for marketing purposes 

By submitting an inquiry or signing up for a training, conference or other event organized by Seargin, the User may consent to the processing of personal data in order to receive marketing information on products and services offered by Seargin, including newsletters.

User’s consent for processing personal data is the legal basis for sending newsletters. It can be granted while providing one’s e-mail address in the newsletter subscription form or gated content as well as by checking a box while completing a contact or recruitment form. Providing the e-mail address in the newsletter subscription form is a clear affirmative action of consenting to processing personal data as defined in Article 4 (11) of GDPR regarding the definition of consent as well as connected 32nd motif of GDPR explaining the clear affirmative action.

According to the abovementioned motif, a clear affirmative action includes informing Seargin that the User’s e-mail address provided in the form may be used for sending a newsletter that includes Seargin ’s promotional information. It is one of the acceptable forms of consenting to using the provided e-mail address for the defined purpose (such forms also include checking a box located near the content of the consent).

Consent to sending unsolicited marketing information, according to the rules for electronically supplied services, is provided by the user independently and separately by checking a dedicated box located near the content of the consent.

Such data will be processed according to the consent (Art 6 (1) (a) of GDRP) expressed by a clear affirmative action. If the User wishes to receive other marketing information, he/she may state so by checking a relevant box. If the User does not state so, it means that he/she is not interested in receiving other information thus Seargin will not send it.
