General Information

Since 2005, Rise Technical has become an industry-leading Recruitment Consultancy. We now have over 100 specialist Consultants and have positively changed over 16’000 lives.

Our reputation is built on long-standing relationships; relationships we hold with both our Clients and Candidates. We are committed to all those, who we work with and Data Protection is paramount to our processes. It is our promise to manage your details securely.

We are committed to the highest standards of data protection. We make this statement in order to give you a clear understanding on what data we process, how we process it and what rights you have.

Legal Basis

In order to process your data, we must have a legal basis to do so. In the majority of cases, your data will be processed on the basis of legitimate interests. Depending on the nature of services we provide you with, we may need to process additional personal data in order to enter into a contract with you. We may also seek extra consent from you in order to process certain types of data, such as special category data.

As a recruitment company, our business relies on collecting and processing personal data. It is therefore in our interests to process your data for the purposes of recruitment services, whether you are a candidate looking for a job or a client seeking employees. It is also in your interests, as without processing your data we cannot provide you with our services.

Categories of Data

While providing our services to you, we will process the following categories of data (among others):

-       Your name and contact details

-       If you are a client seeking employees, your current job title within the company

-       If you are a candidate, your work history and all other details contained within your CV

You may provide this data to us directly by contacting us about or service or applying to a job advertisement. On occasion may also collect the data from publicly available sources (including but not limited to your profile on a job board, linkedin, company website etc) in order to introduce our services to you.

Sharing your data

In order to effectively provide you with our services, we may have to share your data with our subsidiaries in Germany, the Netherlands and the US. We will always ensure your data is adequately protected when sharing it and only do so when necessary.

If you are applying for a role with one of our clients, we will share your data with them so that they can progress your application.

We may also share your data with our auditors, accountants or government agencies when legally required to do so.
