It may sometimes be necessary to transfer your personal data to third parties established outside the European Economic Area (EEA). In accordance with the GDPR, DIQQ will only transfer your personal data to countries outside the EEA if:

In situations where DIQQ transfers your personal data outside the EEA, we ensure that your personal data remains adequately protected.
At DIQQ, we take your privacy seriously and the security of your personal data. Strict safety measures are crucial, especially within the recruitment industry. We make it extra hard for malicious people to access our systems.

If your personal data is processed, you have several rights, which you can find below. You may exercise these rights by submitting your request in writing to DIQQ or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. DIQQ verifies your identity before they can meet your request.
DIQQ will respond to your request as soon as possible, by one month at the latest. DIQQ will only charge you for processing your aforementioned requests if your requests are excessive.
1. Access to personal data
You can ask us any time to indicate which (categories of) your personal data DIQQ processes, for which purposes, from which source the data comes, and which retention periods are applied.
2. Changing personal data
In addition, you can contact us at any time to complete or correct your personal data. In the unlikely event that DIQQ has processed and/or provided incorrect personal data about you, DIQQ will rectify this immediately. If DIQQ has changed your personal data, DIQQ will notify you accordingly.
3. Minimizing the processing of your personal data
If you disagree with the content of the personal data about you stored by DIQQ, you can submit a request to minimize the processing of your personal data temporarily.
4. Withdrawing consent
You can also withdraw the consent you have given for the processing of your personal data. Upon receipt of your letter or email, DIQQ will immediately cease processing your personal data for which you have given your consent. However, withdrawing your consent will not affect the processing operations that have already taken place.

You can retrieve the personal data about you stored by DIQQ in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format. After receiving your personal data, you are free to transfer this information.

If you no longer wish to make use of DIQQ's services, you may submit a request for the deletion of all your personal data.
7. Right to object
You have the right to object to processing your personal data, which DIQQ bases on the grounds of a legitimate interest of DIQQ or a third party or 'performance of a task carried out in the public interest.' If DIQQ bases itself on these grounds, DIQQ will weigh its interests against your privacy. The right to object entitles you to require DIQQ to repeat this weighing of interests.
8. Right to lodge a complaint/pursue a judicial remedy
We make efforts to join you in working to find a fair solution if you have a complaint or problem relating to our use of your personal data. However, suppose your position is that we cannot assist you with your complaint or concern. In that case, you can also lodge a complaint with the Dutch Data Protection Authority or institute judicial proceedings.

DIQQ only retains personal data for as long as is necessary for the processing. DIQQ maintains your personal data as long we consider this essential to provide you with services, enable you to use our website, comply with applicable laws, resolve disputes with parties, and for other purposes that allow us to conduct our commercial activities.

We store data on (potential) candidates for three years. After this period, we will ask the (potential) candidate for permission to keep their personal data for another three years. Potential candidates can access their personal data that is stored in our systems. If a potential candidate no longer wishes to be approached by DIQQ, they can file a request for the deletion of their personal data.
If you have applied for any of our internal vacancies at DIQQ but are not invited for a job interview, or when we unexpectedly cannot agree on your contract, we will keep your personal data stored for four weeks. After this period, we will ask you for permission to store the personal data for three years. We do this to approach you again in the future, for example, when a new vacancy comes up that matches your profile.
