TNO only uses your personal data in accordance with the purposes described in this privacy statement in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The party responsible for the data processing is the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research TNO, located at Anna van Buerenplein 1 in The Hague.
All data entered by you and data provided by you in the submitted attachments.
TNO does not collect or process sensitive information such as data revealing your racial or ethnic background, political, religious or philosophical beliefs, possible trade union membership, health or sex life.
TNO uses your personal data to facilitate a responsible, effective and efficient recruitment and selection process. The legitimate ground for processing these data lies in the legitimate interest of TNO in recruiting and selecting potential candidates for job vacancies. TNO has taken appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect the data against any form of unlawful processing, such as loss, theft, misuse, unauthorised access, undesired disclosure, improper amendment or distribution.
TNO collects and processes personal data from both open applications and applications for existing job vacancies. TNO will only process personal data for recruitment purposes. TNO’s recruitment purposes are: comparing the applicant’s data with current vacancies, communicating recruitment and selection procedures, contacting applicants to plan interviews, testing applicants and informing applicants of other relevant vacancies. ‘Processing’ means collecting, registering, storing, organising, transferring, adapting, modifying, retrieving, consulting, using, limiting, disclosing (via transmission, dissemination or another method), comparing, blocking, destroying and deleting recruitment information.
TNO retains the data of applicants during the recruitment and selection procedure. Following the end of the recruitment and selection procedure, TNO retains the data of applicants for one year. TNO retains personal data if there is a ‘business need’ to retain these data, e.g. retaining an applicant’s CV in case a suitable vacancy arises. One month prior to the end of an applicant’s data retention period, a request will be sent to you asking your consent to extend the data retention period by one year. If you do not consent to this, the data will be completely removed. In the event that an applicant is hired by TNO, the part of the data required for the conclusion of the employment contract will be included within the HR administration.
GDPR grants people certain rights in order to check if the data processing is in accordance with the law. Most important rights relating to the recruitment process are your right to access, amend and delete your data. You can exercise your rights by contacting [email protected].
Unless the exceptions mentioned below apply, TNO will not make your data available to third parties under any circumstances, nor will your data be sold.
Exceptions regarding no use of data:
In order to optimally protect your personal data against unauthorised access or use, TNO always uses the latest security technology.
Access to your data is limited to TNO personnel who are involved in TNO’s recruitment activities. TNO personnel are obliged to respect the privacy of applicants who visit the TNO website and to keep the data of applicants confidential.
TNO has appointed a Data Protection Officer (DPO). The DPO fulfils an independent supervisory role within TNO in regard to the manner in which TNO handles personal data. For questions or or complaints, please contact recruitment via [email protected]. More information about the DPO can be found in TNO’s general privacy statement at tno.nl.
