Data protection is a particularly high priority for Digisourced. The use of our Service is possible without any indication of personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use special services via our website or Services, processing of personal data may become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary, and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain consent from the data subject. Digisourced provides recruitment related services and we will, therefore, use your personal data in order for us to be able to deliver these services to you whether you are a; candidate, client or website user. Digisourced is deeply committed to ensuring the privacy and protection of your personal information. This includes any information that may be collected during the process of finding you a job, maintaining a relationship with you after placement, offering a service to you, receiving a service from you, utilizing your data to request assistance in relation to one of our candidates, or during your visit to our website or Services. Digisourced recognizes the importance of privacy and takes great care to uphold the confidentiality of all personal information that is collected.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, email address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to Digisourced. Utilizing this data protection declaration, our enterprise would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed through this data protection declaration, of the rights to which they are entitled.
As the controller, Digisourced has applied numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the complete protection of personal data processed. However, Internet-based data transmissions may, in principle, have security gaps, so absolute protection may not be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via alternative means, e.g., by telephone.
The data protection declaration of Digisourced is based on the terms used by the European laws for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be comprehensible and understandable for the general public, as well as our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to first explain the terminology used. In this data protection declaration, we use, among other things, the following terms:
A) Personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“data subject”). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural, or social identity of that natural person.
B) Data subject
Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the processing.
Processing is any operation or set of operations which are performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure, or destruction.
D) Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.
Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular, to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.
Pseudonymization means processing of personal data in a way that it can no longer be linked to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separate and protected with special measures to make sure that the personal information cannot be linked back to an identified or identifiable natural person.
G) Controller or controller responsible for the processing
Controller or controller responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.
Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data during a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities must adhere to the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing.
Third-party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or body other than the data subject, controller, processor, and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorized to process personal data.
Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed, and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, through explicit declaration or clear positive action, indicates agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

Your data will be stored within the European Economic Area (“the EEA”) (The EEA consists of all EU member states, plus Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein).
Some or all of your data may be stored or transferred outside of the European Economic Area (“the EEA”) (The EEA consists of all EU member states, plus Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein). You are deemed to accept and agree to this by using the Services and submitting information to us. If we do store or transfer data outside the EEA, we will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your data is treated as safely and securely as it would be within the EEA and under the GDPR. Such steps may include, but not be limited to, the use of legally binding contractual terms between us and any third parties We engage and the use of the EU-approved Model Contractual Arrangements. If We intend at any time to transfer any of your data outside the EEA, We will always obtain your consent beforehand and we have put in place safeguards to protect your personal data which are discussed in our Data Protection Agreement.
In compliance with all local laws and regulations, your data may be shared for any of the following reasons:
• Individuals and companies that have information about your reference or application to work with Digisourced, including current, past, and potential employers, educational institutions, examination bodies, and employment and recruitment agencies.
• Tax, audit, or government bodies when requested by law.
• Third-party service providers who carry out work on our behalf, such as professional advisers, IT service providers, and outsourced IT and document storage providers with whom we have a processing agreement or similar protection in place.
• Marketing technology Services.
• Potential employers to process your application for roles.
• Third parties for technical testing or clients that use online talent management systems.
• If relevant and with your prior active consent, we may share your data with companies that have relevant job openings for each job.
• We may contract with third parties to supply some services to you on your behalf. These may include payment processing, search engine facilities, advertising, and marketing. In every circumstance, your data will be encrypted and only contractors who have been thoroughly vetted will be able to see your data. Where any of your data is required for such a purpose, We will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your data will be handled safely, securely, and in accordance with your rights, our obligations, and the obligations of the third party under the law. We currently contract with the entities as mentioned in our Data Protection Agreement.
Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example, in the case of inquiries concerning our services. If we are subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if the processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the European laws. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).
The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of the contract or the initiation of a contract. If the data subject requests for termination or terminates his Digisourced Account, the personal data shall be retained for a period of 1 year from the date of termination.
20 PROVISION OF PERSONAL DATA AS STATUTORY OR CONTRACTUAL REQUIREMENT; REQUIREMENT NECESSARY TO ENTER INTO A CONTRACT; OBLIGATION OF THE DATA SUBJECT TO PROVIDE THE PERSONAL DATA; POSSIBLE CONSEQUENCES OF FAILURE TO PROVIDE SUCH DATA
We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g., tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g., information on the contractual partner). It may be required in certain circumstances to enter into an agreement where the data subject provides us with their personal data, which will then be processed by us.. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when Digisourced signs a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would result in the inability to establish a contract with the data subject.. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact our Data Protection Officer (Contact details provided below). Our Data Protection Officer clarifies to the data subject whether the provision of the personal data is required by law, contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.
