This Information on Processing of Personal Data is aimed at persons who are in contact with DC on the basis of services, as customer or candidate. You can read more specifically about what is applicable in the individual situations in the relevant tabs. Others are of course also welcome to have a look at our policy.


In general

In connection with providing our services, we will receive information about you, or information that can identify you (personal data).

Our work is naturally based on respecting you and your private life, and therefore we take the protection of your personal data very seriously. So, in addition to the professional ethics of business in terms of confidentiality and professional secrecy, we process your personal data in the manner that is laid down in this Information on Processing of Personal Data.


Only relevant personal data

We are focussing on the nature and the scope of personal data and how to protect them in the best possible way. Therefore, we only collect and process personal data that are adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to a legitimate purpose. Our main focal point is not to collect more personal data than necessary for this purpose.

However, we may be obliged under applicable law to collect and process certain personal data.


Only necessary personal data

We only process personal data that are necessary for us to provide our services and to maintain and administer the customer relationship. Due to this, we only process personal data about you for search and recruiting, to administer the customer relationship or if we are obliged under applicable law.


Only reasonable and legitimate purpose

Our collecting and processing of personal data take place exclusively for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes. We do not process personal data for other purposes than the purpose why the personal data was originally collected.

In the event that we should wish to use personal data for another purpose than that for which they were originally collected, we will notify you about this, unless such further processing is subject to our duty of confidentiality or it is a question of enforcement of civil law claims, etc. However, by anonymising personal data so that the registered persons are no longer identified or identifiable, we may use the data for other purposes without prior notification.


Only when legal basis is established

Our collecting and processing of personal data take place on the basis of a contract, a consent, a legal obligation, or on grounds of other legitimate interests, including where civil law claims are to be established or defended. We may exceptionally require your consent for some processing.


Updating and validating of your personal data

As our services rely on accurate data, we make sure that personal data collected and processed by us are not inaccurate or misleading and will ensure that personal data are updated by checking with publicly available data, such as LinkedIN. We ask you to assist us if any relevant changes to your personal data occur.

In some cases, we may need to collect and aggregate personal data from a third party, e.g. from public authorities and private bodies. In that case, we will inform you and obtain your consent in this respect, unless you are already aware of such collecting and processing, or your interest in being informed is clearly overridden by compelling public or private interests or it is a question of enforcement of civil law claims, etc.

Our product and services are aimed at people above 18 of age. If we observe personal data related to a person below the age of 18, we will delete the personal data in question.


With whom are we sharing personal data?

We may share personal data with associated companies under the office partnership of DC as well as with our business partners working on our behalf for the purposes concerned. This could be services, technical support, or provides of personality tests.

In the event that we engage third parties for the processing of personal data, we will enter into data processing agreements governing the processing of personal data by such third parties on our behalf.

Please contact us for information on data processors.

When providing our services, we may disclose and transfer personal data to our customer(s), business partners or other parties or participants involved in our services. Unless the transfer forms part of our agreement with you, we will inform you separately of the transfer and, if obligated to, collect your consent. If our services is related to a service agreement with a customer, we will provide and disclose your personal data to our customer in the capacity of the customer being a potential employer or employers looking for new employees. We also disclose personal data where we have a legal obligation to do so, for instance for tax purposes.

In our agreements, we require that our data on customers and cases are not stored or processed outside Denmark. We only transfer personal data for the processing outside the EU and EEA if such transfer is made to a customer, a counterparty or a court, etc.

We may disclose your personal data to a potential buyer of DC requiring shares or entering into partnership with DC. This could be when a new partner is registered or if a partner leaves or if we merge.


Deleting personal data

We delete personal data where they are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected and processed. Therefore, the storage periods may vary, depending on the relevant purposes and the criteria for deleting personal data is based on fulfilment of our contractual obligations, and if we are subject to mandatory archiving purposes subject to Danish legislation.

However, we cannot guarantee that your personal data is 100% protected, as outsiders may succeed in breaking or hacking our security measures even if we do all possible to avoid it.
