The provision and processing of some of your personal data is a legal requirement (e.g. for record-keeping purposes under the Employment Services Act) and if you do not provide us this personal data, we will not be able to provide you with some of our services.
We process your personal data for legitimate reasons only.

In accordance with Article 6(1)(c) of the GDPR, we may also process some of your personal data on the grounds that it is necessary for the performance of our legal obligation, e.g. pursuant to Act No. 5/2004 Coll. on Employment Services and on amendments and additions to certain acts.
Based on your consent, we send you other suitable job offers, or we process your personal data for marketing and statistical purposes to the extent of the consent granted. You can withdraw your consent at any time via e-mail sent to email@example.com. Withdrawal of the consent, however, does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent.

If you create a candidate profile on our website, we allow you to link your response to a job advertisement with your accounts on social media (such as LinkedIn or Facebook). If you choose to provide a link to your account on social media, we may process not only such a link but also the data that are publicly available on such a link, though only in connection with our employment agency activities and for the purpose of placement.

Including without limitation, we evaluate whether you as a candidate are suitable for the position and also that your education, experience and language skills meet the requirements of the advertised position, and whether the remuneration offered is in line with your expectations. This evaluation process can be categorised as profiling of personal data to the extent of Article 4 (4) of the GDPR.
Where do we get your personal data?
We obtain most of the personal data that we process directly from you (e.g. through our website, responses to job advertisements, trade fairs or other events, from your business card you give us, etc.). Sometimes we also receive your personal data from third parties, such as job portals or your previous employers if you have provided us with their contact details, and from our clients if an employment contract or other similar agreement has been entered into.
How long do we retain your personal data?
We process personal data only for the time that is absolutely necessary for the purpose which we process the data for. Most often, for the period of the selection process for a specific job position, and subsequently, if, at least, your contact has been disclosed to an employer, for the time strictly necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of our legal claims. If you have given your consent to the processing of personal data or have registered on our website, we process the relevant personal data only until your consent is withdrawn or your registration is cancelled.
If we find that your data are no longer necessary for any of the purposes for which they have been processed, we will erase such data.
Who do we transfer your personal data to?
As we process your personal data for the purpose of our activities as an employment agency and to provide related services, we transfer your personal data to employers looking for employees for advertised positions or advertisements created by Grafton. In this case, Grafton and such a potential employer are independent controllers of your personal data. Based on your consent, your personal data may be transferred for the purpose of arranging employment to other companies from Gi Group in the Slovak Republic, which we work closely in the field of employment placement activities (scroll down to see more details).
Your personal data may also be provided to any authorised public authorities, institutions or other entities in compliance with the applicable statutory requirements. Where required for the purpose of processing, your personal data may be transferred to our third-party contractors who provide us with support during the recruitment process. Such third-party contractors may be in the position of processors of your personal data, in which case a personal data processing contract is always entered into with such contractors.
