What information do we collect?

Matchmakers likes to help you find the perfect fitting and challenging job. And helps employers to find the right candidates for their vacancies. To be able to make this match we make optimal use of the data provided by jobseekers/candidates and employers.

Candidate data

Besides the name and address details we also ask candidates to provide information about, for example, education and work experience. And of course which challenge is being sought. We are also obliged to carry out an identity check. We must also request and record this information.

When you register with Matchmakers you create a personal profile. You can always consult and change this profile in your own profile environment.

Through the platform of Matchmakers you can also send in your CV. This digital document will be stored in the Matchmakers system.

Data from Employers

Data will also be registered for the contact with employers for the filling of the vacancies. So that we know which contacts we have for the various vacancies.

In order to provide the best possible service, we also record the personal preferences of the various contact persons. For example, with regard to the contact moment or preference regarding the means of communication (telephone/e-mail or chat).

Information about the use of the Matchmakers website

To analyze the activities on the website we use Google Analytics data. This is based on an anonymous IP address. Read more about this on the Cookie Statement.

Our website does not intend to collect information from visitors who are under the age of 18. These visitors must first have permission from their parents or guardian.

Unfortunately we cannot verify whether visitors are 18 years or older. This information is not collected by us. Should we have collected this information anyway. Please contact the Data Protection Officer (see below under contact).

Purposes and basis of data processing

We do not collect or use information for purposes other than those described in this privacy policy unless we have obtained your prior consent. Personal data is used for:

  • processing CVs submitted online
  • composing profiles of candidates
  • compiling vacancy overview
  • matching candidates and vacancies
  • sending out newsletters
  • communicating changes to products and services contact by telephone or e-mail for the execution of services
  • Analysis of website behaviour

Sharing data with Third Parties

With the exceptions indicated above (Matching candidates to Vacancies and Newsletter), the information will not be shared with third parties. In some cases, the information may be shared internally. Our employees are obliged to respect the confidentiality of your data.

If you request it, we can also share personal data with third parties for which you give permission. For example, in order to obtain more specific information about a job application from a client/employer.

Purpose and basis of data processing Google

The purpose of the cooperation with Google Analytics is to gain insight into the behavior of visitors to the site. This gives us more information about how we can better tune the site to the wishes of users.

Because the IP address is anonymized, the impact on the privacy of visitors is minimal. Processing of the data takes place based on a legitimate interest. In accordance with the guidelines we have received for complying with GDPR.

Communication and Newsletter

When you send us an e-mail or other communications, we may retain those communications. Sometimes we will ask you for personal information that is relevant to the situation. This allows us to process your questions and respond to your requests.

The information is stored on Matchmakers own secure servers or those of third parties. We will not combine this information with other personal information we have.

Matchmakers offers you the possibility to subscribe to its newsletter. For this we need at least your e-mail address. You can also specify your name when signing up for the newsletter.

For sending email newsletters we use the services of a specialist external party. This organization is therefore in possession of your e-mail address but also follows the GDPR guidelines. This organization is specialized in sending newsletters and securing the subscription lists.

Modify/unsubscribe from newsletter service

At the bottom of every newsletter we send you will find the option to change your details or to unsubscribe from the newsletter.

How long we keep personal data

Matchmakers does not want to keep personal information any longer than is strictly necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it is collected. Of course the emphasis is on matching candidates to jobs and vacancies.

The processed data will be kept until the agreement has been fulfilled or up to 14 months in case of Google. If the law requires a longer period, Matchmakers will follow this period.

Cookies and cookie retention periods

Viewing, modifying or deleting data

With the coming into force of GDPR legislation you have the right to view, correct or delete your personal data. Anyone of whom we have collected data can request this:

  • to allow access to personal data collected
  • to make corrections to your own data
  • to stop the processing and/or remove the personal details
  • to transfer the personal data ('data export')

A lot of the information we have stored about you can be viewed on your profile page. As a registered candidate you can log in to your own profile area. In this environment you can directly adjust a lot of information if desired.

You can send a request for access, correction, deletion, data modification or request to withdraw your permission or objection to the processing of your personal data to the Data Protection Officer (DPO):

Every data subject is free to file a complaint with a supervisor about the way Matchmakers processes data and/or informs data subjects. A supervisor is for example the Dutch Data Authority.

Verification of identity

To make sure that you are the one making the request, we ask you to send a copy of your identity document with the request. This way we can prevent someone other than you from requesting the data or having it removed.

Pay attention to your privacy. Therefore, in this copy of the identity document, please make your passport photo, MRZ (machine readable zone, the strip with numbers at the bottom of the passport), passport number and Citizen's Service Number (BSN) black. This is to protect your privacy. There are special apps for this.

We will respond to your request as soon as possible, but no later than 30 days.
