The personal data contained in your application will be collected by Stichting “The Commission for International Justice and Accountability” (the “Controller”). Your personal data will be processed for the purposes of managing the Controller’s recruitment related activities, which includes but is not limited to setting up and conducting interviews (and, where applicable, tests for applicants), evaluating and assessing the results thereto, and other activities otherwise needed in the consultancy service procurement process.
The Controller may collect a range of information about you. This includes: your name, address and contact details (including email address and telephone number), details of your qualifications, skills, experience and employment history, information about your current level of remuneration, whether or not you have a disability for which the organization needs to make reasonable adjustments during the recruitment process, and information about your entitlement to work in specific countries.
In addition, the Controller may also collect personal data about you from third parties, such as references supplied by former employers. The Controller will seek information from third parties only once a job offer to you has been made and will inform you that we are doing so. Data will be stored in a range of different places, including on your application record, in HR management systems and on other IT systems (including email).
The Controller processes your personal data pursuant to several legal bases, depending on the type of data and purpose of the processing. Under most circumstances, the Controller’s processing of your personal data in the recruitment context is based on your request in the anticipation of entering into a consulting services agreement with the Controller. The Controller will also process this information where required to comply with legal obligations to which it is subject, such as governmental reporting obligations. In some circumstances, the Controller will process your personal data pursuant to its own legitimate interests in operating its business, including conducting the above described activities for internal administrative purposes and ensuring network and information security. A different legal basis may be provided at the point where your personal data is collected.
If your selection as a service provider is unsuccessful, the Controller will, whenever necessary and subject to any statutory or audit requirements, delete and/or anonymize your data that is no longer needed. If your selection as a service provider is successful, personal data gathered during the recruitment process will be transferred to an HR file (electronic and paper based) and retained during your contract period with the Controller.
Your information may be shared internally within the organization for the purposes of the service procurement process. This includes members of the HR team, interviewers and other consultants or officers of the Controller that are otherwise involved in the recruitment process. The Controller will not share your data with third parties, unless your services are retained and an offer of contract is made.
Under the GDPR, you have the right to request access to your personal data, to request that your personal data be rectified or erased, and to request that processing of your personal data be restricted. You also have the right to data portability. In addition, you may lodge a complaint with an EU supervisory authority.
