Privacy Policy For Applicants

Privacy Policy for Job Applicants of North-East Venture

This policy applies to North-East Venture ApS (Danish business registration (CVR) no. 25 16 73 41), (”NEV”, ”we”, ”our” or ”us”).

At NEV, confidentiality and data protection are high priorities. This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) explains how we process (“Process/Processing/Processed”) your personal data (“Personal Data”) as a job applicant of NEV (an “Applicant”). 


As part of our recruitment process, we will Process your Personal Data as further described in this Privacy Policy.  


Changes may occur to this Privacy Policy from time to time and will be made available here.


1. Processing of non-sensitive Personal Data

In order to evaluate your application (including your formal, written job application and exhibits, your “Application”), we will: 


(a) Process the Personal Data, which you have disclosed in your Application; and

(b) evaluate your performance and competencies during interviews; and 

(c) Process relevant and available Personal Data about you that we find on the Internet, including content from social media (we will typically search for information regarding your previous jobs, activities, competencies, performance, etc).


The legal basis for our Processing of your Personal Data is your submission of your Application, cf.  Article 6(1)(b) of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). 

If the job position requires you to complete one or more personality tests, you will be informed hereof when we have processed your Application. The results of such tests will be treated confidentially but will be included in our evaluation of your Application. Our legal basis for such Processing is Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR. 


We may also request that you provide us with a copy of your criminal record (in Danish: straffeattest) if this is necessary for evaluating your suitability for the position in question. Your criminal record (and the Personal Data included therein) will be treated confidentially and will be deleted immediately after presentation. You will be asked to obtain the criminal record yourself, and your submission of your criminal record will thus constitute our legal basis for the Processing of the Personal Data identified therein, cf. Section 8(3) of the Danish Data Protection Act (in Danish: persondataloven) (the “Data Protection Act”). 


As part of our evaluation of you as an Applicant (including the evaluation of your Application), we may wish to speak to your previous and/or current employers. We will, however, only reach out to the persons you have explicitly stated as references in your Application. Our legal basis for the Processing of Personal Data about you as part of reaching out to such references is Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR (and/ or if you have provided your explicit consent, such consent in accordance with Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR). 


2. Processing of sensitive Personal Data

We recommend that you do not disclose sensitive Personal Data, such as information revealing racial or ethnic origin, religion, trade union membership, sexual orientation, health, etc. in your Application. In the unlikely event that a certain health condition is required for the ability to perform the duties related to the position in question, we might – based on an individual assessment – request health information from you. In such case, we will ask for your consent for the Processing of such Personal Data, which will form the legal basis for such Processing, cf. Article 9(2)(a) of the GDPR. 


3. Retention of Personal Data

If you are offered a position at NEV, your Application and other relevant Personal Data obtained during the recruitment procedure will be stored in your employee file.


If you are not offered a position, we will store your Application and any additional Personal Data obtained during the recruitment procedure for a period of six months following our rejection of your Application, unless you have provided your consent to storing such Personal Data for a longer period than six months.


4. Video surveillance

North-East Venture is located at Store Strandstræde 19, 1., tv., 1255 Copenhagen, which has video surveillance installed by the entrances. The purpose of the video surveillance is to ensure safety and prevent crimes in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR and Section 8(3) of the Data Protection Act. 


Video recordings are only be accessed and reviewed in the event of the suspicion of criminal behavior, violation of Office Clubs internal guidelines or through internal/external auditing. The recordings may be disclosed to the police for criminal investigations, if the recordings are disclosed for the purpose of safeguarding public or private interests which clearly override the interests of secrecy in accordance with Section 8(4) of the Data Protection Act or if the disclosure is otherwise required by law. Should it be necessary to disclose the recordings for other purposes than mentioned, the prior consent of the subjects of such recordings will be obtained before disclosing the recording. 


The video recordings are stored on a server that only a limited number of employees within Office Club have access to and can only be accessed with a password. 


Video recordings which have been recorded for the purposes of preventing crime will be deleted or anonymized no later than 30 days after the recording has taken place, unless it is necessary for Office Club to keep the recordings for the purpose of solving a breach of law. Recordings from video surveillance which has been conducted for other purposes will be deleted when it no longer serves a purpose to store the information.


5. Transfer of Employee Personal Data to third parties, transfer to third countries 

Your Personal Data may be shared with other entities within the North-East Group and other third parties.


To the extent your Personal Data is transferred to data controllers or data processors in countries outside the EU/EEA, including group entities, that do not ensure an adequate level of data protection, such transfer will be based on the EU Commission’s standard contractual clauses.

Furthermore, you have the right to object to the Processing and request restriction of the Processing of your Personal Data.
