12. Supplementary Data Protection Directive - employment opportunities

Welcome! This additional Data Protection Directive – Employment Opportunities („job directive“) complements the Data Protection Directive for the website Madame-Ilsa.org (the “website”). It applies as soon as you use the section “Employment Opportunities” on our website or allow a third person use it on your behalf. When an applicant is handicapped and needs help with the usage of our online system, the creation of a profile, the application for voluntary work or other aspects of the application process, please contact our coordinator for special needs (contact: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., subject ‘Special Needs’) so that we can take the corresponding measures. We are a non-profit foundation that encourages equal opportunities.

This job directive is part of our Data Protection Directive and Information Security Policy (the “Data Protection Directive”), which in turn is part of our site policy. Used but not defined terms in this directive shall have the same meaning as defined in the before referred documents. IN CASE YOU CREATE A PROFILE, DISCLOSE DATA RELATING TO AN ANNOUNCEMENT FOR VOLUNTARY WORK, APPLY FOR A JOB OR ALLOW A THIRD PERSON TO DO THIS ON YOUR BEHALF, YOU AUTOMATICALLY AGREE WITH OUR SITE POLICY INCLUDING OUR DATA PROTECTION DIRECTIVE AND THIS ADDITIONAL DIRECTIVE.

If you do not act as an applicant but as a representative for someone else, e.g. as a friend, you must assure and guarantee the foundation that you have shown the site policy (including the Data Protection Directive and this job directive) to the applicant and that you have gotten his/her written agreement for those conditions and policies or that you are authorized in some other way to act on behalf of the applicant and to disclose the personal data of this person.

Data collected in the section “Employment Opportunities”
In addition to the personal data that we collect on the website in general, you have the possibility to create a “profile” in the section „Employment Opportunities“. Simply enter your e-mail address, set a password and enter a secret question. You will have access to your profile with that information later on. If you create a profile, submit an application or authorize us to procure a “consumer credit report” (reliability reference), we will normally collect the following information: name, address, phone number, CV, employment contract, remuneration, education and certification, former sponsorship from us, social security number (or the national insurance policy number or a document corresponding to the applicants with their residence in other countries) etc. We also save the data when applications have been submitted. If you have a profile, individuals who are using your password will be able to see this history over a period of several months by clicking on “My Jobs”.

The submitted information about an applicant are stored temporarily. If we find that the applicant matches the job well, we often ask for a more formal application and to give us the permission to procure a “consumer credit report” or an “investigative consumer credit report”. According to the international law a “consumer credit report” is a report regarding the credit rating, the credit status, the creditworthiness, the applicant’s personality, general reputation, personal characteristics and the life circumstances, which are valuable to the decision whether to offer employment or not. An “investigative consumer credit report” is essentially the same but the information is collected by personal conversations with neighbours, friends, colleagues or acquaintances etc. of the applicant. Both types of reports (as well as other information recorded by us) can include information from court records, administrative files and criminal records.

Data access
You can update your personal information in the section „Employment Opportunities“ with the corresponding feature on the website. The foundation withholds profiles in accordance with its directive for retention of data. We reserve our rights to delete your profile and any other data that you or another person have/has saved on the website so that you should not save the single copy of your CV there (occasionally data has to be entered once more). You can apply for the deletion of your profile at any time. Please, send an e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and request the deletion. Neither with the modification of your profile nor with its deletion can you change the data that you have already submitted.

Usage of the data collected in the section “Jobs”
In addition to the usage of personal data that is approved in the Data Protection Directive we also use the personal data that is provided during the application process for a job as follows:

We disclose the information

  • towards third parties who help us with the authentication of applicants, the verification of qualifications and certificates and the contacting of references;
  • towards our affiliated companies, organizations and other third parties or persons the applicant possibly will work together with if he/she gets the job;
  • if we are looking for someone to fill an open position with us or for any third party, and to contact a former candidate to see if he is interested in a job to which the applicant has not applied. We do this, however, at our sole discretion and without obligation, in the entire communication concerning applications, jobs, legal issues or other subjects;
  • to infrom the applicant about the receipt of the application or for further communication regarding the job or other legal or relevant matters.
  • to meet the applicable laws such as keeping the immigration restrictions or comparing names with lists of names to fight against terrorism.
  • if an applicant receives a position in our foundation, we will save the application and other relevant data in which we have used as reference in the personnel file of the applicant so that we can base decisions after the employment (such as disciplinary proceedings) on that information.

Passwords; editorial processing of the CV
According to the site policy you are obligated to keep your password and other login details confidential. That is exceedingly important if you do not want another person to know your password, to see your CV, your profile or other available data (e.g. jobs you have applied for). Furthermore, you should take measures to keep your CV safe: before you update a CV remove all sensitive data in it such as social security numbers, identification numbers (e.g. of your driver’s license), financial information, date of birth etc.

We do not require such information in a CV.

Security

  • We retain data regarding your application on a website hosted by a service provider. The information will not be encrypted but the service provider is obligated to take an appropriate number of security measures. Furthermore, your CV and other data will run through our offices and be forwarded to relevant third parties. As explained in the site policy, we do not undertake the guarantee of security and we cannot control third parties.
  • • You should assume that the website, the storage and the general usage are not encrypted so that you can initiate relevant measures for a heightened security (e.g. explained in this directive in the section “Password; editorial processing of the CV”).
  • Please keep in mind that there are e-mail „phishing“ and other acts of fraud by individuals who are simulating us or a third party working for us. If you are contacted and asked to provide sensitive data such as financial information or your social security number etc., you can be sure that you are being deceived.
  • In case you have provided us this information, we already have it in our files as for all the other third parties to whom we have forwarded your personal data: Generally, we do not have to ask for this information again.
  • • If you want to make sure that the person who is communicating with you is really someone from our foundation or from a third person to whom we have forwarded your data, please do not hesitate to contact us: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
