If you have questions or comments about this Policy, you may contact us by email at


We offer our Platform and services within the European Union and therefore the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) applies. This notice applies to you if you are resident in the European Economic Area (“EEA”: the countries of the European Union as well as Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland) (“GDPR notice”).

Therefore, if you are located in the EEA, the general considerations in the Policy and the considerations specifically set out in this GDPR notice will apply. If there is a conflict between the Policy and the GDPR notice and this GDPR notice applies to you, then the GDPR notice will prevail.

Unless otherwise specified, definitions in this EU Supplemental Terms will have the same meaning as the definitions used in the Terms of Use. If you have any questions or concerns about our collection or use of your information, please contact us at

Requesting for Consent

  1. Collecting and sharing your personal data

As set out in the Policy, we may collect your personal data from other sources and we may share your personal data with affiliated companies, group companies and subsidiaries, third-party services providers, and marketing partners. In these cases and to the extent that the receiving party is not a processor on our behalf, we will only collect or share your personal data if we have obtained your consent. This consent is obtained for example via a consent banner or a cookie banner depending on the receiving party.

  1. Marketing purposes

We will not use your electronic contact details for marketing purposes, unless you are our customer or meet another exception under the applicable telecommunications laws. As mentioned in the Policy, you can unsubscribe from our marketing email list at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe link in the emails that we send (this is also called ‘OPT OUT’). If you are not our existing customer, we will ask for your consent to send direct marketing messages (this is also called ‘OPT IN’).

For the underlying processing of your personal data for marketing purposes, we may process your personal data based on our legitimate interest, except when your interests or your fundamental rights and freedoms outweigh our interests. This legal basis is referred to below as ‘legitimate interest’.

  1. Special categories of personal data

Our Platform does not intend to collect special categories of personal data, such as personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs. However, we cannot fully guarantee that we will not collect such data if you provide it to us (for example, in your resume). We will not use it for purposes other than creating your resume.

Additional Privacy Rights

If you are a resident of the EEA, you may invoke a number of privacy rights additional to those mentioned in the Policy, which are the right to review or change the information in your account to make sure it is accurate and up to date. The additional rights include:

Right to Erasure. You generally have a right to erasure; however, we may not always erase your personal data because sometimes the processing is still necessary: for example, for complying with statutory obligations or for lodging, exercising or substantiating legal claims. Therefore, we will weigh your interest in having your personal data erased against the necessity of maintaining the personal data for other legitimate interests. Regarding the deactivation of your account we refer to the information mentioned in the Policy.

Right to Restriction of Processing. Under certain circumstances, you may have us restrict the processing of your personal data. For example, if the accuracy of your personal data are contested.

Notification of Rectification, Deletion or Restriction. Unless it is impossible or involves a disproportionate effort, we will inform the recipients of your personal data about rectification, deletion or restriction of processing.

Right to Data Portability. Under certain circumstances, you may request us to transfer your personal data to another party.

Right of Objection. Furthermore, under certain circumstances you may object to the processing of your personal data by us (or third parties engaged by us). For example, you may object to the use of your personal data for marketing purposes.

Right to Withdraw Consent. If we have requested your consent for data processing, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. The withdrawal of consent will not affect the lawfulness of the processing prior to the withdrawal.

Right of Complaint. If you believe that the processing of your personal data violates applicable laws and regulations, please contact us at We will always try to find a solution together. Should this not be possible, you can lodge a complaint with the Dutch Data Protection Authority, or any other competent authority in the European Union, or to take legal action.

Exercising your rights

You can submit your request(s) for exercising these rights to us at, please provide your name, telephone number, and type of request. To protect your privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before responding to your request(s). Only you or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf may make a verifiable request related to your personal data. For example, if you make a request, we will ask you to confirm your name, email address, and/or other information we in our records to verify your identity. This is a security measure to ensure that personal data are not disclosed to someone who has no right to receive it.

We will respond to your request as soon as possible, and no later than one month from receipt of your request. In doing so, we will also assess whether, and if so to what extent, we can or must comply with your request under the law. If a longer period of up to two months is needed, we will inform you within one month of receipt of the request. The submission and processing of your request is free of charge, unless your request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, in particular because of a repetitive character.

Representative In The EEA

If you have questions or comments about this GDPR notice, you may contact our Data Protection Officer (DPO) by email at and our representative in the EEA, which is established in the Netherlands:


This Notice provides more information about specific disclosures and rights we provide to residents of the U.S. in accordance with U.S. law.

Sensitive Personal InformationSome types of personal information are subject to a heightened level of protection under data privacy laws. These types of personal information are called “sensitive personal information” and include social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, passport numbers, precise geolocation data, racial or ethnic origin information, and genetic data. If and to the extent we collect, receive, or process sensitive personal information of Platform users, potential Platform users, or website visitors, we apply security measures designed to protect such information. We do collect or receive certain sensitive personal information from job applicants and employees, which is addressed in a separate notice.

Categories of Information Disclosed

Category A: Identifiers.

Category B: California Customer Records personal information categories.

Category C: Protected characteristics information.

Category D: Commercial information.

Category F: Internet or other similar network activity.

Category H: Sensory data.

Category I: Professional or employment-related information.

Category J: Education information.

Categories of Information “Sold”

We do not sell your personal data for a monetary fee; however, some U.S. privacy laws define a “sale” very broadly such that it may include our sharing of your personal data with certain third parties if we receive anything of value in return.  In that regard, we share your personal data with certain third-party marketing partners and in exchange we receive the ability to market or offer our products and services through their websites and applications.  This may be considered a “sale” under some laws.

The personal data that may be shared or sold in this context is: your name; email address; other contact information; and information obtained through cookies about, for example, your location, the website that directed you to our Platform, how you navigate our sites, and what purchases you make. Other than these third-party marketing partners, there are no other third parties to which we will sell your personal data.  

Do-Not-Track Features

Many web browsers and some mobile operating systems and mobile applications include a “do-not-track” feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected.  No uniform technology standard for recognizing and implementing do-not-track signals has been finalized and, as such, we do not currently respond to do not track browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online.  We will update this Policy if that changes in the future.

Additional Privacy Rights

Right to Information.  Subject to certain limits, you may ask us to provide the following information: 

  • The categories of personal information we collected about you;
  • The categories of sources from which the personal information was collected;
  • The business or commercial purpose for collecting the personal information;
  • The categories of third parties with whom we shared the personal information;
  • The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you; and
  • Whether your personal information was sold or shared (“shared” in this context means sharing for the specific purpose of cross-context behavioral advertising) and, if so, the categories of personal information that was sold or shared, the categories of third parties to which your personal information was sold or shared, and the business purpose for the sale or sharing.

Right to Delete.  You also have the right to ask us to delete any personal information that we have collected about you, subject to certain limitations. We may deny your deletion request if the information is necessary for us or our service providers to, among other things, provide a service you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated in the context of our business relationship with you, perform a contract we have with you, detect and protect against security incidents or illegal activity, comply with a legal obligation, or exercise a right provided for by law. 

Right to Opt Out of Sale or Sharing.  Certain states provide residents with the right to opt out of the sale of personal information.  If you are a resident of a state that provides such right, you have the right to opt out of the sale of your personal information.  You may exercise this right by clicking on the “Do Not Sell My Personal Information – U.S.” link located at the bottom of our homepage or by submitting a request as described in the “Submission of Requests” section below. In addition, if you are a California resident, you have the right to opt out of the sharing of your personal information with any third party for the purpose of targeted advertising. You may exercise this right by clicking on the “Do Not Sell My Personal Information – U.S.” link located at the bottom of our homepage or by submitting a request as described in the “Submission of Requests” section below.

We are permitted under applicable law to offer you certain financial incentives that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels, which are related to your personal information’s value.  Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt-in consent, which you may revoke at any time.

Submission of Requests.  You may submit a request regarding your personal information by emailing us at – please provide your name, telephone number, and type of request (that is, a request for categories of information, a request for specific pieces of information, a request to delete, or a request to opt out the sale of your information).

What We May Need from You.  We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to someone who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

Verifying Your Identity: To protect your privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before providing your personal information and before deleting your information. Only you or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf may make a verifiable request related to your personal information. For example, if you make a request, we will ask you to confirm your name, email address, and/or other information we in our records to verify your identity, so that we can help protect your information.  

Requests from Authorized Agents:  You may designate an authorized agent to make a request for you.  If you designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf, we may require you to verify your identity and provide the authorized agent’s identity and contact information to us.

Responses to Requests.  We will confirm receipt of your request within 10 business days of receipt and generally will respond to your request within 45 days of receipt.  If we need more time to respond, we will inform you of the reason and we may take up to an additional 45 days to respond.  

No Fee Usually Required.  You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive, or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
