In this privacy policy we tell how personal data of job applicants is processed at Premico.

4. What are the grounds for processing and what purposes do we process personal data for?

We process personal data to process job applications and manage recruitment and the related needs of Premico. The processing of personal data is based on Premico’s legitimate interest or the consent given by the data subject in this context.

We process personal data of job applicants which is necessary to process job applications and manage recruitment activities such as:

  • Basic information of the data subject: name, personal ID, birth date (if no Finnish personal ID), identification number;
  • Contact information: address; ZIP code; post office; phone number; email;

  • Information collected during the application processinterview videos, assessments.

6. Where do we collect the information from

Primarily we obtain the personal data directly from the data subjects themselves in context with the job application or recruitment process, e.g. via email or job application with its appendices. Upon the job applicant’s consent, we can supplement the personal data from other sources than the applicant such as the applicant’s previous employers or public sources such as LinkedIn and credit report register provided by Suomen Asiakastieto Oy. The collection and updating of the personal data will be done manually or by automatic means.

7. Where do we disclose and transfer personal data and do we transfer data outside of the EU or EEA?

Personal data of job applicants is processed only in the operations of the respective Premico group company. Such data cannot be disclosed to other companies belonging to Premico group unless it is necessary for the purpose of processing the job application and recruitment.

We also use subcontractors to process personal data. For example, we have outsourced our IT management to a third-party service provider, and personal data is stored in the servers managed and secured by such service provider.

Personal data of job applicants may be transferred outside of the EU and EEA if it is necessary for the purposes of processing or technical implementation of the processing of personal data. Transfers of personal data will be subject data processing agreements in accordance with the applicable law such as EU’s General Data Protection Regulation. Transfers of personal data outside of the EU and EEA require compliance with the applicable data protection law and appropriate safeguards such as standard contractual clauses based on the European Commission’s applicable decision. Premico does not disclose personal data to other than the above-described recipients unless otherwise required by mandatory legislation.

8. How do we protect the data and how long do we store the data?

Systems used for processing of personal data can be used by only such employees of Premico who have the right to process such data for their work-related obligations. Each user has their own user ID and password for the systems. Data will be collected in databases which are protected by firewalls, passwords and other technical measures. Databases and their backups are located in locked facilities. Data can be accessed by only certain pre-approved persons.

Personal data of job applicants will be processed in such extent that is necessary for the recruitment process. We store the data of applicants as long as is necessary for Premico’s rights and obligations and responding to possible requests and inquiries. The data of applicants will be erased after two years from the end of the recruitment process at the latest.

We assess the necessity of storing personal data on a regular basis considering the applicable law. In addition, we take reasonable measures to ensure that no incompatible, obsolete or incorrect personal data is stored considering the purposes of processing. We correct or erase such data without delay. Upon your consent we may store your personal data for a longer period and, for example, for future recruitment processes.
