This Data Privacy Statement explains how ILIKOS CG processes personal data when provided. It also describes your data protection rights, including the right to object to some of ILIKOS’s processing operations. For more information on your rights and how you can exercise them, please refer to the section “Legal rights in relation to personal data and how to exercise them”.
This Data Privacy Statement supplements our existing Policy 5 on General Data Privacy Statement, which gives you specific information on how we process personal data obtained from your job application and related to non-application-specific topics.

Data Protection Officer: Styliana Mirallai ([email protected])
Collection of personal data

As part of our operations, we may collect and store the following categories of personal data about you:
Data which you have provided to us in your candidate profile, including first and last name, country, e-mail, phone number.
Data which you have entered on our candidate application form, including desired annual salary, your motivation, information about disabilities (if and to the extent that it is relevant for the job offered).
Data which you have provided to us in your application documents (curriculum vitae CV, cover letter) including work experience, qualifications and language skills.
Data from online assessments (e.g. presentations) and video interviews (if applicable).
Data provided to us by your referees (if applicable). These are reference points that you have given us to contact.
We collect personal data directly from you or from our external partners (when applicable). We can also obtain information from professional social networks, such as LinkedIn, and from other publicly accessible sources (only information relevant to your professional life) for the purposes of actively approaching you with job offers or for the purpose of confirming the accuracy of the information presented by you within the course of the application.
Use of personal data
Your personal data may be used for following purposes:
To assess your application for the job offered and to communicate with you within the recruitment process.
To contact you in case of an alternative career opportunity within the ILIKOS CG (you can restrict the visibility of your candidate profile to the team involved in your current application).
Based on your consent to ask you about your experience within the recruitment process.
To contact you following your unsolicited application.
Based on your consent to send you personalized information on current open job postings.
Legal basis for processing
Personal data will be used for the assessment of your application and, if an employment relationship is established, also for the execution of the employment relationship. Providing your personal data as part of the application process is voluntary. However, the provision of personal data is necessary for the processing of your application or the conclusion of an employment contract with us.
When we obtain information from your public profile on professional social networks, such as LinkedIn, we base this processing on our legitimate interest to build a decision base in order to establish an employment relationship with you. The legal basis is Article 6 f) GDPR in conjunction with Article 9 (2) e) GDPR.
Furthermore, we may process personal data about you where this is necessary to defend ourselves against legal claims arising from the application process that are brought against us. The legal basis for this is Article 6 (1) b and f) GDPR.
Data Sharing
We may transfer your personal data to companies affiliated with us provided this is permissible within the scope of the purposes and legal bases outlined above. We might share your candidate profile with partners or stakeholders of ILIKOS CG. If you do not wish to be further considered for relevant job offerings, you can request the deletion of your candidate profile, see section “Data retention”.
Furthermore, personal data may be processed on our behalf on the basis of contracts pursuant to Article 28 GDPR, especially by providers of systems for applicant management and selection procedures. We do not share data with third parties that have no reference to our application management and application procedures or other use cases we describe in section “Use of personal data”.
Such transfers may involve the transfer of personal data to recipients outside the European Union / European Economic Area. Standard contractual clauses have been concluded with these external service providers, unless they are based in countries with an adequacy decision pursuant to Art. 45 GDPR.
In the event of a legal obligation, we reserve the right to disclose information about you if we are required to surrender it to competent authorities or law enforcement bodies. The legal basis is Article 6 (1) c) GDPR.
Legal rights in relation to personal data and how to exercise them

Right of access
You can request information about your personal data (commonly known as data subject access request). You can exercise this right by contacting us under the above-mentioned contact details of the controller.
Right to rectification and erasure
If you wish to update the personal data provided to us, you can send us an email to [email protected]. Under certain conditions, you can ask us to erase your personal data.

Data retention

We retain your data for a period of one year after receival. We further retain your personal data in that period in case there is a relevant job offering for which you will be a fitting candidate. In addition, you can request the deletion of your candidate profile or the withdrawal of your application by contacting our DPO Dr. Styliana Mirallai at [email protected].
In case your application is successful we may store your personal data within the subsequent employment in compliance with the applicable legal regulations. More information can be found in the Data Privacy Statement for employees that we will provide to you on acceptance of the job.

Objection or Withdrawal of your consent to the Processing of Personal Data

If you have given your consent (Article 6 (1) a GDPR) to the processing of your data (e.g. when we invite you to participate in a survey on your satisfaction with the application process), you can withdraw your consent at any time. Such a withdrawal influences the permissibility of processing your personal data after you have given it to us.
If we base the processing of your personal data on the weighing of interests (Article 6 (1) f GDPR), you may object to the processing. This is the case if processing is not necessary in particular to fulfil a contract with you, which is described by us in the Chapter Use of data. When exercising such objection, we ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we have done. In the event of your justified objection, we will examine the situation and either stop or adjust data processing or point out to you our compelling reasons worthy of protection, on the basis of which we will continue processing.
