Job seekers registered with the Kuntarekry.fi service:

The register consists of data added by data subjects in their personal job-seeker profile and their username and password for the kuntarekry.fi web service.

Data subjects can edit the data saved in their profile.

The following data is collected of the data subjects:

(a) Basic data and identification data, such as name, date of birth, gender, telephone number, email address, language selection;

With regard to job-seeking, it should be noted that each employer selects the questions asked in each application form. Considering personal data collected in application forms, the employer that posted the job advertisement in question in the kuntarekry.fi web service acts as the data controller, insofar as and if the data subject decides to send an application to that employer. Data collected about job-seekers and saved in the recruitment system depends on what data is asked in a targeted application form and what data each data subject provides and saves in the recruitment system. In situations where FCG Talent offers the service to a municipal employer acting as a data controller, FCG Talent acts as the processor of personal data for that municipal employer on behalf of that municipal employer.

6 REGULAR DISCLOSURE OF DATA AND RECIPIENTS OF DATA

FCG Talent Oy uses subcontractors in its operations. The subcontractors process personal data in compliance with the instructions issued by FCG Talent Oy and do not use the data in their own operations.

9 PRINCIPLES OF REGISTER PROTECTION

No manual material is generated from the register.

The controller ensures that electronically processed data material is only processed in compliance with the data protection practices valid at the time. The data protection practices include the encryption of transferred data material, access right limitations and appropriate updates of software suites.

The controller’s employees are committed to observing a confidentiality obligation and keeping all information obtained when processing personal data confidential.

10 RETAINING AND ERASING DATA LOCATED IN THE PERSONAL DATA REGISTER

Data collected in the register is only retained as long as and to the extent as is necessary considering the purposes for which the data was collected.

FCG Talent as the data controller is responsible for retaining and erasing profile data about data subjects.
(a) If a username has not been used for two (2) years, the username and the profile data linked to it will be erased.
(b) Any unsent job applications will be erased automatically after six (6) months.
(c) In open job applications, each user defines how long their application remains valid. The minimum retention period for job applications is one (1) day and the maximum retention period is two (2) years.

With regard to the retention and erasure of applications sent to employers, each employer organisation is responsible for defining retention periods in their role as a data controller. If data subjects have any questions about retention periods, they should contact the employer organisation to which they sent their application.

FCG Talent in its role as a processor assists employers in their role as a data controller so that applications sent for vacancies are automatically anonymised within two (2) years after an employer has ended their recruitment process by closing it. If a recruitment process is not closed, the system will end it automatically within one (1) year after the application period. In these situations, applications are retained in the system for three (3) years after the application period.

11 THE RIGHTS OF DATA SUBJECTS

  1. Right to obtain information from the data controller, indicating that their personal data is either processed or not processed. If personal data is processed, data subjects have the right to access their personal data.
  2. Right to withdraw their consent at any time. This withdrawal has no impact on the lawfulness of any processing carried out before the withdrawal on the basis of consent.

  7. Right to file a complaint with the supervisory authority if the data subject notices that their personal data is processed in breach of the GDPR.
    Requests for exercising the rights of data subjects must be sent to the data controller's contact person mentioned above.

If you want to exercise any of your rights listed above, the request will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Please note that we may keep and use your data in spite of your request if this is necessary e.g. for complying with legal obligations, settling disputes or ensuring our legitimate interests (e.g. legal remedies).
