Mercuri Urval as Data Controller
A part of our core business is to process personal data for candidates and assessment participants. In order for us to offer the best possible services, we keep a continuous dialogue with data subjects relevant to our current and future clients. In combination with using our own developed procedures and services, we will have to make our own independent decisions on the processing of personal data.
Therefore, we consider ourselves Data Controllers according to article 4.7 of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR).
We hold legal processing of personal data as one of the most critical aspects of our operations. In our relationship with candidates in Executive Search and Professional Recruitment processes, as well as with participants in Talent Advisory projects, we rely on Consent as a legal basis for processing data. Therefore, we are to be seen as Data Controllers.
