How We Treat Your Information

What Information We Gather?

Toro GroupS (referred to as TGS) is an HR consulting and specialized recruitment firm and collects a variety of personal data necessary to provide such services in a highly confidential database accessible only by TGS. Categories of personally identifiable data include but are not limited to career history, education history, professional experience, resume and contact information.

By submitting your information to TGS website, by whatever means, you indicate your willingness to disclose this information to TGS and to be considered, when appropriate, for one of TGS’ confidential recruitment searches. If you do not wish to disclose your personal information, TGS will be unable to provide you with the services offered by this website, since employment, educational and other personal information is necessary in order to assess your employment opportunities.

It is not TGS’ policy to seek any sensitive information through our website. Sensitive information includes data relating to race or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or similar beliefs, trade union membership, physical or mental health, sexual life, or criminal record. We suggest that you do not provide sensitive information of this nature. If you do wish to provide sensitive information for any reason, TGS accepts your explicit agreement to use that information in the ways described in this Privacy Policy or as described at the point where you choose to disclose.

We recognize that our role in protecting personal information is critical – on behalf of our clients, our candidates and all TGS partners. We are committed to ensuring that all personal data shared and processed within TGS is protected, private and secure, in compliance with General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR) and local data protection legislation.

TGS takes the individual rights of candidates and other data subjects seriously. As required by the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 we guarantee data subjects their rights:

• to be informed about their data processing;

• to have access to their personal data that we may hold;

• to right to rectify and update their personal data;

• to erase their data and be forgotten;

• to restrict or object to the processing of their personal data;

• to data portability;

• in relation to automated decision making and profiling.

After thoroughly examining our business processes and with strong consideration for your fundamental rights and freedoms, we have determined that it is in our legitimate interest to hold and process your personal data in order to be able to perform our duties and core activities as a recruitment agency, registered with the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy. Given the specifics of our business model, there isn’t any more appropriate alternative to storing and processing your data, that will allow us to successfully conduct our normal operations.

The main purpose of processing your personal information is to be able to provide our core services, namely consulting and supporting professionals and job seekers as well as employers having vacancies, with the main goal of signing an employment contract. That may include but is not limited to the following: considering your professional profile for a (confidential) vacancy we recruit for, contacting you in relation to this vacancy and sharing information about it with you, inviting you for an interview, considering your professional and personality fit for the open position and organization, providing confidential information to the client about your candidacy, etc.

Considering the main goals of the processing, there is no standard nor universal period for storing your personal data. Your data is only deleted after your expressed desire.

We apply internal processes that ensure compliance with local legislation and requirements, and train our professionals to work in accordance with these. We ensure that our clients are aware of their roles in protecting personal data, and work with them under defined contractual terms for the sharing of personal data.

In order to present you as a potential candidate to potential employers (TGS clients), your personal information may be shared with clients and/or transferred to TGS affiliates. By choosing to provide TGS with your personal information you indicate your willingness to share and have your information stored by TGS, transferred to TGS affiliates and to be considered, when appropriate, for one of TGS’s recruitment projects.

If you object to your information being shared and transferred in such manner or if you do not wish to participate in this service and benefit from the career searches that TGS provides, please do not enter your personal information into the website.

Protecting your Personal Information is important to us. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain the accuracy of data and ensure proper use of information, Toro GroupS has put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial security procedures. We also use appropriate technical and organizational measures and safeguards designed to help prevent unlawful processing and unauthorized or accidental loss of your Personal Information. This includes, for example, the encryption of your communication with us over the site based on the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
