6. Who we share the data with
6.1 I Executive Search will share your data with other companies and organisations in order to deliver our Services. If you are a Candidate, we will share your personal data with a Client only when you have agreed to be presented to that specific Client. If you are a Client, we will not share any personal data with Candidates unless we have your consent to do so.
6.2 We may also share your data with other parties when this is necessary in order to (i) fulfil our contractual obligations toward you, (ii) fulfil legal obligations pursuant to laws, other regulations or decisions made by courts or authorities.

The following categories of recipients may receive your personal data as described below:

  • Authorities – We may be required to give personal data to authorities. We will only do so when required by Union or Member State law. We will inform you of the obligation unless we’re prevented to do so by law.
  • Developers and consultants – We work with developers and consultants from other companies to develop our IT-infrastructure and further develop services. A developer may need access to basic personal data when necessary to provide support and develop the service. Everyone engaged by us in this way is bound by confidentiality and only has access to the data that is necessary to perform their services.
  • Payment providers – Payment providers such as banks are controllers of their own processing of personal data. The personal data involved in financial transactions is always collected by a payment provider, which applies separate terms and conditions for that service.

6.3 We carry out as much personal data processing as possible here in the EU/EEA. Should any data be shared with a service provider outside of the EU/EEA, by us or one of our service providers, the recipient will always enter into standard contractual clauses with us that ensure the recipient maintains a data protection standard equal to the EU/EEA.

7. How long we keep your data
7.1 Personal data is only kept for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes described above or if the person is interested in continuing the business relationship over time.

8. Deletion of personal data
8.1 Personal data is erased or anonymized when the data is no longer necessary. ”Anonymized” means to remove any connection to an individual from the information.
8.2 When we erase or anonymise personal data, we have no means to recreate or restore that personal data.
