Transfer of your personal information to a third country (outside the EU/EEA)
In far most cases, Basico will not disclose your personal information to countries outside the EU/EEA. Should this become necessary, it will be done in accordance with the law, including ensuring the necessary basis for secure disclosure.
Storing your personal information
Basico will store your personal information only for as long as necessary to meet the purpose of processing your information. However, special provisions may apply and within certain areas your personal information may be stored for a longer period of time.
If you are engaged by us or if you conclude a cooperating agreement as an associate with us, your personal information will be transferred to the general staff administration in connection with the employment (collectively referred to as “employment”). Please contact Basico for further information about the special provisions (contact details are available below).
If you are not employed by us – or in case of recruitment for a customer – the general rule is that your personal information will be deleted after a maximum of six months unless you have consented to a longer period. In connection with recruitments, you can consent to us storing your CV, your application and other documents in our database for a period of up to five years and us recording the information contained in the said documents in order to contact you again if a similar relevant position becomes vacant during the period or if an existing applicant backs out.
We will not save information about employment with a recruiting client.
Some of your personal information must be kept for accounting purposes or to defend legal claims. These personal data will be kept until the expiry of the mandatory deadline, which is five years as regards the keeping of accounting material.
