HOW WE SHARE INFORMATION

DB STUDIUM & PARTNERS does not share your contact information with third parties for direct marketing purposes by the latter. When you apply for a job advertisement, when you submit your contact information to indicate interest in a job opportunity, or when you respond to a message from an employer, you consent to the disclosure of your information to that employer and to being contacted by that employer for purposes related to the job offered. We share your contact information with third parties who help us deliver our services to you. Such third parties may not use your information for any other purpose. We may share your information with third parties if you give us permission to do so. We may disclose information we have collected from other websites to third parties.

We also share information in the following ways.

1. We share your information with our service providers, considered third parties, who help us provide you with our products and services. These services include, for example, hosting our web servers and website databases, data analysis, marketing assistance, providing customer management tools, processing credit card payments and customer support services. These companies have access to your personal information needed to perform their functions but are not authorised to use it for other purposes. We are responsible for any information shared in this way.

2. The information will be disclosed to third parties only after obtaining your consent. For example:

(a) when you make your CV available, or when we acquire information made available on a publicly accessible website; therefore, anyone authorised to access our CV or profile database will be able to access your information;

(b) when you have consented to receiving information relating to third parties’ products or services, we will provide these third parties with your contact details in order to contact you.

We also share aggregate information (including location data) about visitors to the dbstudium.com site with third parties. In addition, we aggregate data relating to job qualifications, education, age, experience level or other information relevant to your job search. This aggregate data will not allow you to be individually identified and may be made available to employers or shared publicly.

3. We may disclose information we have collected from other websites to third parties.

4. We disclose information only when we are legally authorised to do so, or at our discretion pursuant to a request from a governmental authority, or when we believe in good faith - after evaluating your privacy interests or other factors - that such action is necessary in order to: (a) comply with legal requirements or comply with legal process; (b) protect our rights or property or our affiliated companies; (c) investigate fraud, prevent crime, or protect national security; or (d) safeguard the personal safety of users or the public.


ACCESS TO YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

We keep your information to make your interaction with DB STUDIUM & PARTNERS as efficient, practical and relevant as possible. You can access, review, correct, update or delete your CV or profile at any time. When you delete your personal information, we keep logs and non-personal information about your activity on dbstudium.com. DB STUDIUM & PARTNERS may deny or restrict access, correction, updating or deletion of your personal information if it believes that you have violated the rights of others and/or when otherwise permitted by the laws in force. We also keep an archival copy of your non-personal information for internal control and review purposes; such information will not be accessible to you or to third parties on the Internet.

We are committed to restricting access to our profile and CV database to legitimate users, but we cannot guarantee that other parties will not gain access to this database. Once the CV is shared, DB STUDIUM & PARTNERS is unable to retrieve it from third parties who have accessed it. Consequently, you should not include sensitive information, personality profiles or other information that you do not wish to make public in your CV or profile.

If your CV contains the personal details of a reference, you must inform the referrer that you have shared their details and confirm that you have obtained their written consent for such transmission.

The CV that you provide us must not contain data related to: (i) racial or ethnic origin, (ii) political beliefs, (iii) philosophical or religious beliefs, (iv) membership of trade unions or political parties, (v) biometric or physical or mental health data, or genetic characteristics, (vi) addictions or sexual life, (vii) criminal offences committed or associated proceedings and penalties or fines, (viii) illegal or questionable conduct and related penalties, or (ix) social security or national identification codes. When transferring this information, you acknowledge that you do so at your own risk.

Data retention: because managing your career is a lifelong process, we retain the information we collect about you in an effort to make your repeated use of our sites more efficient, convenient, and relevant, at least until you change or remove your personal information as described below. We may keep your data as long as the account is active, or as necessary to allow us to provide services to you, to comply with legal obligations, to resolve disputes, and to comply with the agreements signed.

We may retain your personal data even after your account is closed if this is reasonably deemed necessary to comply with our legal obligations (including requests from law enforcement authorities), to meet regulatory requirements, to resolve disputes, to investigate security incidents, to prevent fraud and abuse, to comply with our User Agreement, or to comply with your requests when you withdraw your consent to receiving further messages from us. When an account is closed, your information will be kept anonymously.

Requests for access to your personal data will be processed within a reasonable period of time. If we need more time to provide access to the requested information, we will acknowledge receipt of the request within a reasonable period of time and promptly add our response within the timeframe required by applicable law.
