Should the processing be based on your consent or our legitimate interests, you may withdraw consent or object to that processing at any time by contacting us directly at email@example.com. Please note, however, that the withdrawal of your consent will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on your consent before the withdrawal.
We take the necessary measures to ensure that only our authorized personnel who have the necessary knowledge have access to your personal data in order to fulfil the purposes for which your personal data was collected.
We may transfer your personal data to the following possible categories of recipients in accordance with the purposes and legal basis of the processing described above and insofar as this is necessary for the corresponding data processing, e.g. as part of a recruiting process of a potential employer:
We choose our partners and data processors carefully and only upon sufficient guarantees they have appropriate technical and organizational measures in place. Our data processors may only process personal data on documented instructions from us. They all are subject to confidentiality requirements and may use your personal data solely to the extent necessary to fulfill the purpose for which your personal data was collected, except as otherwise required by law.
The personal data collected through our Website is stored in Switzerland. Moreover, we may transfer, store and process your personal data in data locations around the world, for example where our third-party providers or business partners are located (like our business partner Harrison Assessments). Therefore, we may transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area (EEA) if it is required for the data processing described in this Privacy Notice in accordance with applicable law.
If data is disclosed to countries that do not guarantee an adequate level of protection, TalentProfilingSolutions will ensure adequate protection of data disclosed by putting appropriate safeguards in place, such as contractual guarantees (e.g., on the basis of EU standard clauses), binding corporate rules, or transferring data pursuant to your explicit consent, conclusion or performance of a contract, or in connection with the determination, exercise or enforcement of legal claims. You may obtain more information about our appropriate safeguards by contacting us via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which your personal data was collected. For this reason, we will delete or anonymize personal data (or equivalent) once they are no longer necessary to achieve the purposes, subject however (i) to any applicable legal or regulatory requirements to store personal data for a longer period (e.g. for tax or accounting reasons), or (ii) if we have an overriding interest (e.g. an interest for reasons of proof to establish, exercise and/or defend actual or potential legal claims, investigations or similar proceedings, including legal holds, which we may enforce to preserve relevant information, or if we have an interest in non-personalized analysis).
On that basis, we normally process personal data subject to the following rules and obligations:
When you access or use the Website, we may place so-called cookies - small text files - or similar tools on your computer. We use these cookies to recognize you as a user of the Website, to customize content, to improve the performance of the Website and to enhance your experience.
a) Categories of Cookies we use
Depending on their function and intended purpose, cookies we may use can be divided into the following categories: functional cookies, performance cookies, and advertising cookies.
These cookies may be placed by us or a third party on our behalf. To learn more about cookies and how they are used, please visit: http://www.allaboutcookies.org/.
b) Google Maps
This Website uses the Google Maps API, a mapping service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. This enables us to display interactive maps directly on the Website and makes it easy for you to use the map function.
The legal basis of the processing is derived from your consent based on your voluntary information for the creation of a map and our legitimate interests in the presentation of our location as well as an easy findability of the location we have indicated on the Website.
By using Google Maps, information about the use of our Website, including your IP address, may be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google may transfer the information obtained by Google Maps to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google.
Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Nevertheless, it would be technically possible for Google to identify at least individual users based on the data received. It would be possible that personal data and personality profiles of users of the Website could be processed by Google for other purposes over which we have and can have no influence.
For more information about the purpose and extent of data collection and processing by Google, including information about your rights and privacy preferences, please visit www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.
c) Google reCAPTCHA
We use the service reCAPTCHA of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The inquiry in the contact form serves the purpose of checking whether the entry is made by a human being or by automated, machine processing. For this purpose, reCAPTCHA analyses the behavior of the user based on various characteristics. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the user enters the Website. For analysis purposes, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, time spent on the Website or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis is forwarded to Google. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of reCAPTCHA is not combined with other data from Google.
The data processing is based on our legitimate interest in protecting our web offers from abusive automated spying and from SPAM.

We do not make any decision about you which is based solely on automated processing and which has legal effect on you or significantly affects you in a similar way. Our Harrison Self-Assessments and the profiling based on them are not used for automated decisions, but are used to prepare and conduct job interviews, development interviews, coaching, workshops and training. The collected data is always transparently combined with additional information provided by you. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at any time by email to email@example.com.
We have implemented various technical and organizational measures to protect personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised use, disclosure or access, in particular where processing involves the transmission of data over a network, and against all other unlawful forms of processing and misuse.
TalentProfilingSolutions may use third party data processors to collect and process your personal data. Any data processors commissioned by us will only process your personal data in accordance with our instructions and are legally obliged to adhere to strict security procedures when handling personal data.
Unfortunately, transmission of information via the internet is not wholly secure. Although we do our utmost to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our Website; any transmission is done so at your own risk. For this reason, you are always free to transfer your personal data to us via alternative means, e.g. by telephone. Once we have received your information, we employ strict procedures and rigid security measures to try to prevent unauthorised access.
When we collect personal information from children under the age of 16, we obtain the consent of a parent.
You may request information from TalentProfilingSolutions as to whether data concerning you is being processed. In addition, you have the right to request the correction, destruction or restriction of personal data regarding yourself as well as to object to the processing of personal data. Should the processing of personal data be based on your consent or our legitimate interests, you may withdraw consent or object to that processing at any time. However, please note that a withdrawal does not affect the legitimacy of the processing activities that took place before you withdrew your consent. In countries of the EEA you may, in certain cases, have the right to obtain data generated during the use of online services in a structured, common and machine-readable format which allows for further use and transfer.
Requests in this respect shall be submitted to TalentProfilingSolutions via the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
TalentProfilingSolutions reserves the right to restrict the rights of the affected user in accordance with applicable law and e.g. not to disclose comprehensive information or not to delete data.
If we refuse your request or if you are not satisfied with our processing, you are also entitled to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority and seek a judicial remedy. For users located in Switzerland, the competent authority is the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner in Switzerland (http://www.edoeb.admin.ch). For the users located in the EU Countries, a list of the supervisory authorities can be found at http://ec.europa.eu/newsroom/article29/item-detail.cfm?item_id=612080.

All changes to this Privacy Notice are effective when they are posted on the Website unless indicated otherwise.
