3.1 These Terms and Conditions apply to all Personal Data transferred by Talentem to the Client in connection with the Recruitment Services Agreement, including in particular identification data, contact details, job positions, information disclosed by the Data Subject during phone call (interview), any and all date/information contained in the Data Subject’s curriculum vitae, and any other data attributed by Talentem to the Data Subject in its sole discretion or disclosed by the Data Subject. 

3.2 Special categories of data within the meaning of Article 9 of the GDPR will not, in general, be transferred under these Terms and Conditions or under the Recruitment Services Agreement except where, in connection with a specific job offer, there is a material cause defined by the nature of the work to be performed, and in such cases the processing of such data categories is stipulated by law or express consent was granted by the Data Subject. In such cases, special categories of personal data within the meaning of Article 9 of the GDPR or other sensitive data regarding the Data Subjects may be transferred by Talentem to the Client. The Client is obliged to ensure that no Data Subject’s rights will be prejudiced, in particular the right to human dignity.



4.1 The Parties are obliged to take appropriate protective measures when processing Data Subjects’ Personal Data. 

4.2 When processing and retaining the Data Subjects’ Personal Data, Talentem shall abide by the Privacy Policy and Talentem’s internal personal data protection policy.

4.3 The Client as a separate data controller agrees to process Data Subjects’ Personal Data in compliance with the Recruitment Services Agreement under which (i) Talentem will seek and assess suitable Data Subjects for the Client’s job vacancies, and (ii) the Client will consider and, as the case may be, choose and enter with a Data Subject into a contract/agreement (employment contract or a similar agreement).

4.4 The Client may only process the transferred Personal Data to the extent of the purpose defined under Article 4.3 above, based on a valid legal ground for the processing of such Personal Data stemming from the GDPR or other applicable data protection laws.

4.5 The Client acknowledges that failing to observe the purpose set out in Article 4.3 of these Terms and Conditions for which the Client is authorised to process the Personal Data transferred to it by Talentem, such processing may be found contrary to the GDPR or other data protection laws. 

4.6 The Client acknowledges that it is obliged to adopt any and all technical and/or organisational measures to ensure security of the Personal Data; and in the event of any unauthorised or accidental access to the Personal Data, their alteration, destruction or loss, unauthorised transfers, any other unauthorised processing, as well as any other abuse of the Personal Data, the Client itself is fully liable for such personal data breach, actual or threatened. 

4.7 The Parties agree to use appropriate technical equipment and software in a manner precluding unauthorised or accidental access to Personal Data by other (unauthorised) parties, in particular


  • to keep Personal Data in properly secured facilities and rooms;
  • to keep Personal Data on electronic form on secure servers or on data media to which only mandated (authorised) persons will have access;
  • to ensure remote transfer of Personal Data either via a publicly non-accessible network or by means of secure transfer via public networks.

The Client agrees to make available to Talentem a secure channel for the transfer of documents containing Personal Data. If the designated channel for transfer of Personal Data does not ensure a sufficient level of security, Talentem may insist on increasing the level of security in relation to the Personal Data transfers concerned. In the event of leakage or any other undesirable access to Personal Data as a result of insufficient security of the communication channel, the Client will be liable for any resulting harm in accordance with Article 4.6 of these Terms and Conditions.


4.8 The Parties agree to provide each other with any and all necessary cooperation and information to ensure a seamless and efficient performance of the Recruitment Services Agreement in compliance with these Terms and Conditions, especially in any dealings with the supervisory authority or other public bodies. The obligation to provide cooperation under this Article 4.8 on the part of Talentem does not apply in situations where the Client uses the Data Subject’s Personal Data contrary to these Terms and Conditions or the Recruitment Services Agreement, especially if the Client uses Personal Data contrary to the purpose set out in Article 4.3 of these Terms and Conditions. The Parties shall also assist each other and shall provide each other, insofar as practicable, with necessary cooperation with a view to fulfilment of either Party’s obligation to respond to requests regarding the exercise of Data Subjects’ rights.


4.9 Either of the Parties is obliged and authorised to handle, separately and without having to obtain the other Party’s consent, Data Subjects’ rights under Article 15 et seq. of the GDPR based on a request delivered by a Data Subject to that Party regarding the processing activity performed by that Party.
