privacy statement.

When applying for a job and during the job application procedure, you provide DEMCON with your personal data. That is necessary considering the job application procedure. DEMCON then processes the personal data that it receives. In this privacy statement, processing refers to collecting, storing, consulting, updating, protecting, destroying and sharing the personal data with the DEMCON employees involved in the job application.

The increasing volume of data processing has led to increasing awareness of the importance of the data protection. DEMCON therefore wishes to inform you about the processing of your personal data at DEMCON. This privacy statement has been drawn up for that purpose.

This privacy statement applies to all job application procedures at DEMCON. Under this privacy statement, you must give permission for the processing of your personal data during and after the job application procedure. DEMCON draws your attention to the fact that your job application cannot be processed without your permission to process your personal data.

DEMCON consists of several companies. Your personal data will be processed within the DEMCON company that has the relevant vacancy for which you are applying. In addition, your personal data within the DEMCON group is processed by the following company:

DEMCON management & support B.V.
Institutenweg 25
Tel: 088-115 2000

Within DEMCON management & support B.V., most of the support services for the entire DEMCON group are centrally arranged. This includes financial administration, legal and HRM. Insofar as it is involved in the processing of your personal data, every company within the DEMCON group can be regarded as the controller and is therefore bound by this privacy statement. In case of questions about the actual processing of your individual personal data, please contact

Diligence and technical security
DEMCON handles your personal data diligently and takes sound technical and other security measures. DEMCON at all times complies with the statutory data protection regulations, including the European General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679). For instance, DEMCON avoids unnecessary data processing, restricts access to personal data to a group of employees who need to process your personal data, uses only ICT systems that adequately protect your personal data, and has a detailed policy and protocol in place to prevent data leaks.

What personal data are processed?
Depending on the information you provide to DEMCON with regard to your job application, which includes the information that is stated in your curriculum vitae, DEMCON may process the following personal data::
a. surname, first name initials, titles, middle name and the name by which you are known;
b. contact details: address, telephone number and email address;
c. place of birth, date of birth;
d. sex;
e. level of education and certificates;
f. bank account details;
g. (passport) photographs and videos;
h. nationality;
i. curriculum vitae and the personal data that it contains (special personal data, such as race, religion and political preference contained in a curriculum vitae are removed and are therefore not retained).

Purposes of the data processing
Your personal data are processed only for the following purposes:
a. the job application procedure, which includes checking your suitability, inviting you to an interview and possibly reaching agreement on an employment relationship, graduation project, trainee agreement or services agreement;
b. recruitment of new employees for DEMCON and getting students interested in DEMCON as a potential internship provider, graduation company or employer.
c. sending newsletters or invitations to events of DEMCON and for other communication purposes;
d. maintaining a technical or other network; and
e. establishing a portfolio of candidates for future vacancies.

Your personal data are not processed for any other purposes.

Duration of the data processing
Your personal data are processed during the job application procedure. That procedure commences when you apply for a job and ends when DEMCON decides not to offer you an employment or other agreement, or when you sign an employment or other agreement with DEMCON.

If the job application procedure is not followed by an employment or other relationship with DEMCON, DEMCON destroys your personal data four (4) weeks after the end of the job application procedure. In case you give DEMCON permission to store your personal data, then DEMCON retains your personal data for a period of one (1) year after the end of the job application procedure. During this year, DEMCON can contact you with regard to relevant vacancies. DEMCON destroys your personal data at the end of that year, unless you give DEMCON permission again to retain your personal data.

If the job application procedure gives rise to an employment or other relationship with DEMCON, DEMCON processes additional personal data. DEMCON will present you with a new privacy statement for that purpose, governing the employment or other relationship between you and DEMCON.

Sharing of personal data with third parties
Your personal data are shared only with employees at DEMCON who need to access your personal data for the purposes stated above. DEMCON uses several software and other systems to keep proper central records. DEMCON has entered into agreements with the suppliers of those systems to protect your personal data. A list of the suppliers who currently have access to your personal data can be provided on request.

For the purpose of assessments, if any, your personal data may furthermore be shared with third parties that perform the assessment at DEMCON’s request. DEMCON arranges for adequate protection of your personal data also in that context.
