The statement of consent states that you have voluntarily authorized us to process your data. You can read how we do this in the statement of consent.

4.0 Purpose of GDPR

You own the right to your data and you must give us permission and thus the right to process your data. You do this by approving this statement of consent.

The purpose of processing your data is so we can find jobs and vacancies that fit your requirements, wishes, and qualifications. Furthermore, we must be able to calculate and pay wages to you when you are sent to work for our clients.

Our processing of your data thus serves this purpose, and we only process data that is relevant for this.

5.0 Types of data

Depending on jobs and vacancies, we process the following types of data in our systems

Common data.

a. Name, address, phone number, e-mail and so on.

Confidential data.

a. CPR-number, social security number, pay- and financial matters, tax, sick days, service time, family relationship, social standings, criminal records, and child certificates and so on. 

Sensitive data.

a. Union, possibly health conditions.


6.0 How long do we store data

By default, we store your data as long as you give us permission to.

I.e. when you give us your consent, your data will be stored until you wish to withdraw your consent.

Your data will thus continuously be included in our searches for possible candidates for jobs and vacancies.

Should we not succeed in finding and offering you different job opportunities, we will eventually contact you in order to determine whether you still want us to process your data in our system.

If we succeed in finding a vacancy or permanent job which you in turn accept, we will have to create some payment terms as part of your data, and we will thus have to save your data as documentation for a minimum of 5 years after last employment.

When we no longer need to keep your data stored, or you have actively wanted to be removed from the system, one of the following actions will be taken:

If you have not had a job with us then all your data in the system will be deleted and you will forever be forgotten in our system.

If you have had a job, we will have to save and store your data for at least 5 years. Then, if / when you want it, we will anonymize you in the system. This means that we will delete all your data and you will be anonymized with a new arbitrary number. Then you will forever be forgotten in our system.

7.0 GDPR – Your rights

It is important that you know your rights regarding our GDPR and your data being stored in our system. You can read about your rights below.

7.2 The right to be forgotten

7.3 The right to correct your data

In the events that we have registered incorrect information about you, you always have the right to have these corrected or deleted. You do this by contacting us, and we will make sure that the data is corrected.

Our employees and data processors have access to your data and are therefore subject to confidentiality clauses. Our employees and data processors can by default see all your data in our system.

When you accept a job or a vacancy, we send some of your data to our clients. We do this so that the client can see who you are and thus recognize you when you show up at work. The data, that we send to a customer in connection with a job or a vacancy, is as follows:

  • First name, gender and profile picture.
  • Surname (potentially).
  • Your address (potentially).
  • Your age (potentially).
  • Potentially your qualifications, resume, and application.

When you have worked for us and are thus entitled to pay, we will, by nature, transfer relevant data to our payment system and thus also send parts of your data to SKAT and other authorities. This is mandatory by law and thus does not require your consent.

8.1 Transmission of your data

We never transmission your data to other persons, companies, authorities or systems other than those described in this statement of consent. Should the situation arise where it is necessary to transmission your data, you will always be informed thereof.

9.0 Data

Your data is stored in our IT system which is hosted on servers located in Denmark. Your data will thus always be in Denmark and rules for processing will therefore also be subject to Danish law.

9.1 Backup

We regularly backup all your data and store these. Should our operating system break down, we always have a copy of your latest data, which is at maximum 24 hours old.

10.0 Statement of consent

This declaration of consent may be amended.

Should we change our GDPR and how we process your data, or if we otherwise update this GDPR statement of consent, you will always be asked for a new consent and by default, you will always have the right to reject this and thus be deleted or anonymized in our system. Our statement of consent is controlled by versions, and you can always see which version you have approved and when.
