For Skeeled, the protection of your privacy is a primary concern.
Based on Skeeled’s existing contractual relations with the Recruiter, Skeeled is required to process your Personal Data on behalf of the Recruiter depending on the Recruiter’s choices (in particular which information shall be collected and which questions shall be asked).

for some of the processing of Personal Data.
Notwithstanding their respective obligations under applicable data protection legislation, Skeeled shall assist the Recruiter for the fulfilment of the Recruiter’s obligation to provide you with information on the processing of your Personal Data when using the Skeeled Services and respond, if applicable, to requests for exercising your data subject rights.

8. Legal bases allowing for the processing of your Personal Data

8.3. The processing of your Personal Data in relation to the Skeeled Services is also lawful as it is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the Recruiter and by Skeeled.
Skeeled’s commercial activity consists in providing its clients (i.e. the Recruiter) - by means of a software - with the possibility to determine which candidates are suited for a job or traineeship position. The processing of your Personal Data constitutes thus a necessary ancillary to Skeeled’s activities allowing Skeeled to commercialise its products and services.
The legitimate interest of the Recruiter consists in making a well-informed decision on which person to hire for a certain traineeship or job position.
The legitimate interests of, both, the Recruiter as well as Skeeled are not overridden by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms. Rather, the processing of your Personal Data also allows to best serve your interests, namely to present you and your job or traineeship application in the best possible manner to the Recruiter.
9. Conditions applying to your consent
Please note that you have, at any time, the right to withdraw your consent. The withdrawal of your consent shall however not affect the lawfulness of processing based on your consent before its withdrawal.
In the event a Recruiter would allow for Applications to be made by persons below the age of fifteen (15) years, the processing of your Personal Data will, in accordance with applicable data protection legislation, only be lawful on the basis of your consent if and to the extent that such consent to the processing is also given or authorised by a holder of parental responsibility over you.
10. Your data protection rights
To exercise your data protection rights outlined in this section, you can (i) either contact Skeeled by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org

Your request will be processed as soon as reasonably practicable and Skeeled or the Recruiter will provide you with information on the action(s) taken without undue delay and in any event within one (1) month of receipt of the request. This period may be extended by two (2) further months
