Channable does not provide your personal data to third parties (‘recipients’ within the meaning of the applicable privacy legislation), unless this is necessary for the proper performance of the purposes set out in this Job Applicant Privacy Policy, if the law requires us to do so or if you have provided your consent to this end. The third parties to whom the personal data are made available are obliged to handle your personal data confidentially. If these parties qualify as a ‘data processor’ within the meaning of the applicable privacy legislation, Channable will ensure that a data processing agreement is concluded with these parties, which complies with the requirements included in the GDPR. Third parties which offer services to Channable as an independent data controller, such as accountants, are themselves responsible for the (further) processing of your personal data in accordance with the applicable privacy legislation.
We can share your personal data with:

• Suppliers (for example software suppliers and assessment agencies);
• With Channable’s legal successors if Channable is acquired by or merged with another company, for example through bankruptcy and also with third parties involved in such proposed or actual business transaction;
• Courts and government institutions;
• Other parties, such as regulators and other authorities where required by law or with your consent.

In order to deal with your application, Channable might need to transfer your personal data to a recipient in a country outside the European Economic Area with a lower degree of protection of personal data than the European law offers. In that case, Channable will ensure that such a transfer of personal data is in accordance with the applicable laws and regulations, for example by concluding a model contract prepared and approved for that purpose by the European Commission and will assess whether any additional measures are necessary to guarantee an appropriate level of protection of your personal data. Please do not hesitate to reach out to Channable if you wish to receive more information about the appropriate or suitable safeguards in place for data transfers outside of the European Economic Area or if you would like to obtain a copy of them.

• The personal data processed by Channable for your job application will be retained for up to four weeks after the end of the application procedure. With your consent, we will retain your personal data in our portfolio up to one year after termination of the application process. This will give us the possibility to contact you for possible future job openings at Channable. 30 days before the expiration of your consent Channable will contact you via email to ask whether you would like to renew your consent for another one year period and in order to do so, we request that you upload your updated CV and personal information. Your previously uploaded information will be deleted in order to ensure that Channable keeps the information that we process about you up to date;
• Personal data that you have provided in the context of your application will become part of your personnel file when you start working for Channable.
The abovementioned specific retention periods can be extended if statutory retention obligations apply or will become applicable. Channable may also retain the personal data for a longer period of time if this is necessary in light of Channable’ legitimate interests, e.g. for the handling of incidents and/or legal disputes.
Channable has taken appropriate technical and organisational measures to secure your personal data against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against loss, destruction, damage, modification or publication. If you have any questions about the security of your personal data, or if you suspect or see signs of misuse, please contact Channable via
