V. Personal data of candidates for work/cooperation
Purposes and bases for processing of personal data
We need your personal data in order to carry out ongoing recruitment and, if applicable, to take action to conclude a contract.
If you give your additional consent, we will process your data for future recruitment.
We will process your personal data in accordance with the basis aligned with the purpose of processing.
We will process your personal data:
- in case of persons applying for employment on the basis of an employment contract – on the basis of legal regulations, to the extent that it will be necessary to carry out the recruitment process and possibly conclude an employment contract or to perform a specific type of work or a specific position (on the basis of Article 221 of the Labour Code) or will be necessary to perform other legal obligations incumbent on us;
- in other cases, to the extent that the processing is necessary to carry out the recruitment process and possibly conclude a contract with you (basis – contract or taking steps before entering into a contract) or will be necessary to fulfil other legal obligations incumbent on us;
- on the basis of your consent, to the extent of the data you provide us with in the application documents or during the recruitment process, if you provide us with data other than: your name(s) and surname, date of birth, the contact details you have indicated and, if you provide us with information about your education, employment history and professional qualifications, if this is not necessary for a particular type of work or position;
- on the basis of your consent, for the processing of your data for future recruitment, if you give us such consent;
- on the basis of our legitimate interest in pursuing our rights and defending ourselves against claims;
- on the basis of our legitimate interest in the scope of the data collected during the recruitment process to verify qualifications and skills. We have a legitimate interest in testing your skills and abilities – we need this to assess whether you are the right person for the position we recruit for.
Source of data
We obtain your data directly from you, including through online recruitment services (depending on the situation).
Categories of personal data
During the recruitment process we may request the following data from you: first name(s) and surname, date of birth, contact details indicated by you. In addition, if it is necessary to perform a specific type of work or a specific position, we may request information about your education, information about your previous employment history, as well as information about your professional qualifications.
You provide us with any other information voluntarily, on your own initiative. The extent of this information is therefore up to you.
We would like to point out that in the case of your preference for employment on the basis of an employment contract, the provision of data to the extent specified in Article 221 § 1 of the Labour Code is required by law. If you prefer to be employed on the basis of a civil-law contract, provision of the above data is required by us and necessary in order to take part in the recruitment process. Non-provision of the data will result in your inability to participate in the recruitment.
The provision of additional personal data is voluntary and does not affect the possibility of participation in the recruitment process – failure to provide such data will not give rise to any unfavorable treatment of the candidate and will not constitute a reason justifying refusal of employment.

- demand access to your personal data, the right to rectification, erasure (“right to be forgotten”) or restriction of processing;
- transfer of data processed automatically in connection with the conclusion or performance of a contract or on the basis of your consent;
- if our processing of your data is based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawal of consent does not, however, affect the lawfulness of the processing of your personal data by us, which we carried out on the basis of your consent before it was withdrawn;
- to object – on grounds relating to your specific situation – to the processing of personal data on the basis of a legitimate interest. However, in such a situation, we will continue to process your personal data to the extent necessary if there is a legitimate reason for this on our part.

VII. Your personal data storage term
