3. Personal information

The personal details we process are those that you choose to submit to us, for example, if you contact us via the form on the website or send us an email. We will use this information to best handle and respond to your request. If you sign up for the newsletter, the information will also be used in connection with the handling of mailings and for marketing purposes.

What information do we collect about you?

When you apply to Grooo, this information is stored in an internal recruitment system. Further information may be obtained from various labor market-related forums, such as LinkedIn, Github, Uptrail and Monster. Notes from interview occasions at Grooo or the client for the current recruitment assignment, are added to our system and can be viewed as a supplement to previously submitted tasks. Other information that, for Grooo AB, may be relevant to collect in the course of recruitment, personality tests and other forms of certification if it is something the external customer is demanding in terms of employment. This can be considered to rest on legal grounds by maintaining part of the agreement. If contact with us takes place by telephone to seek service, in which an active consent can be considered provided, we reserve the right to enter your information to administratively survey the recruitment process.

How will information about you be used?

The information stored about you in our internal system support will be used to maintain our recruitment assignments. This information can be shared and made available to the client within the current recruitment assignment, which in this context is considered to be a disclosure of information to third parties. This is considered in the situation to be a balance of interests and to maintain part of agreements as a legal basis for the processing of personal data under Article 6 GDPR. Article 6: Legal processing of personal data Processing is only legal if and insofar as at least one of the following conditions is met: (a) the data subject has given his consent to the processing of his data for one or more specific purposes; (b) The processing is necessary to fulfill an agreement to which the data subject is a party or to take action at the request of the data subject prior to the conclusion of such an agreement. (c) The processing is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation incumbent on the data controller. (d) The treatment is necessary to protect the interests of fundamental importance to the data subject or another natural person. e) The processing is necessary to carry out a task of public interest or as part of the exercise of the authority of the personal data controller. (f) The processing is necessary for purposes relating to the legitimate interests of the data controller or of a third party unless the data subject’s interests or fundamental rights and freedoms weigh more heavily and require protection of personal data, especially when the data subject is a child.

Future recruitment

By submitting an application and thereby giving active consent, you also approve that your profile may be matched against future assignments that Grooo consider fits your profile. This information is made available in our internal recruitment system for recruitment consultants at Grooo, as well as the opportunity to contact you regarding this. If you wish to opt-out of the opportunity to be matched against future recruitment assignments, please contact us regarding this. As a registered person, you have the right to receive information about what information we have saved about you and to have any incorrect information corrected or request to be deleted. Responsible for personal data is Grooo AB. For questions regarding the handling of personal data or a request under the paragraph above, please contact info@grooo.com
