Data collection of (potential) candidates

Headit collects personal data which is publicly available, as well as information exchanged in person (such as email, internet or phone). This data consists of name, contact details and information related to your career. The aim of the use of this information is to find a potential match with one or several of Headit’s (potential) clients. Personal data is not shared with any other parties than Headit’s (potential) clients.

We also use personal data of third parties such as:

  • persons you work with or have worked with who can provide us with more information about you – when you are offered a position;
  • past employers – to confirm employment dates;
  • educational institutions – to check your academic qualifications; credit reference
  • agencies – if we need to check your financial standing;
  • publicly available resources such as LinkedIn and social media sites to improve the information we hold about you to help us find more suitable positions for you;
  • clients to whom we have provided your CV and who have interviewed you as part of a job application or who have provided feedback on your CV.

Data collection of clients

We collect personal data such as your name, position and contact details. If you provide us with information about a candidate (for example, if you confirm that a candidate has worked with you or if you provide a reference), we obtain your information from the candidate and we keep a record of the personal information you provide us with about that candidate.

We process personal data about you from public domain sources such as LinkedIn and social networking sites or because you were a delegate at one of our events or at an event where the event organizer is allowed to share delegate information with us.
