Applicants for Employed Roles

If you are applying for a role as our employee, we will collect Personal Data from you during in person interviews, video and online meetings, via your CV, referees, professional and educational organisations, (online) assessments and other sources. We will process your Personal Data for the purposes of administering the application, managing the internal hiring process and assessing your suitability. We will store your Personal Data securely in our confidential online HR database. Your Personal Data cannot be viewed or accessed by anyone except for members of HR and Talent Acquisition in the UK, Europe and the US and other staff if they are connected to the hiring process, such as interviewing, assessing your suitability for the role you have applied for and communicating with you. We do not share our HR database with any group companies and we will take steps to ensure that your Personal Data is adequately protected, secure and kept confidential. If we engage a third party to provide pre-employment screening services or testing, we will inform you and ask for your consent and will ensure that access is limited to the Personal Data that is compatible with those services and the service provider is contractually obliged to comply with applicable data privacy laws, confidentiality and provide adequate safeguards to keep your Personal Data secure until it is deleted or anonymised (so that you can no longer be identified).

By applying for employment with us, you consent to us processing your Personal Data for these purposes. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. If you withdraw your consent, we will not be able to continue with your application.

If your employment application is unsuccessful, we will retain your Personal Data on our HR database for a period of 6 months for the purposes of evidencing that we have conducted the recruitment process in a fair and transparent way and have not discriminated against applicants on prohibited grounds. We may ask if we can retain your CV data for up to 12 months if we consider that you may be suitable for future roles. We will only do this with your consent and you can withdraw consent at any time.

Special Categories of Personal Data

Information about your health and/or judicial/criminal records will only be processed if this is relevant to your job application (for example to enable us to assess whether these present grounds for not taking your candidate registration or job application further) and in compliance with legally imposed restrictions.

This information will be retained for no longer than necessary before being deleted.

Our Clients and Suppliers

If you are a Client or supplier or a potential client or supplier, of goods and services we will collect and process information about individuals in your organization. We may enter the individual’s name and business email address in to our database as a designated corporate/business point of contact for that organization, together with the individual’s other business contact data. We process personal data about business contacts, for the purposes of providing our services, or as a recipient of the supplier’s goods and services. If the individual business point of contact is also a registered candidate we may be processing additional Personal Data for work finding and other purposes as described in this Privacy Notice. The source of a corporate point of contact may be the individual themselves, or their name and business details may be provided to us by a member of their HR or Procurement department or another hiring manager or existing business contact or a candidate we have placed at the organization. We may also obtain these details from websites, social media and other sources. This processing is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests in providing our services, managing our business relationships and/or to fulfil a contract. We may send business to business marketing to business points of contact. Individuals can unsubscribe from marketing at any time by clicking the ‘unsubscribe’ link included in our marketing emails or by contacting: [email protected]

The following information will be collected:

  • technical data including internet protocol (IP) address, your login data, browser type and version, time zone setting and location, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform and other technology on the devices you use to access this website. We may also receive technical data about you if you visit other websites employing our cookies. Please see our Cookies Policy for further details;

How we use your Personal Data

We use, process, store and disclose your Personal Data and other data we collect including during our Candidate Registration process, to provide you with work finding services including sending you job alerts through this website and by email, temporary assignments, project related work and permanent and fixed term contract placements in finance, accounting, technology, administrative, legal, marketing and other related roles, employment opportunities and career-related information. Robert Half will process your Personal Data in accordance with this declaration as well as with the information made available in other documents provided to you, applicable to the type of work you are seeking.

In the context of our services we can disclose your data to our customers. We limit the information that we provide to those that are necessary to assess your suitability for the vacancy (e.g. name, education, experience, etc.) and only send your Personal Data after we have obtained your consent to do so.

Personal Data that you have provided to us is visible to all employees in Belgium who are required to reasonably have access to this data for the execution of their role, even if you have sent your information to a particular office.

We will also process your Personal Data for other legitimate business purposes such as producing statistics, analyzing how successful our marketing campaigns are, the number of visitors to our website and complying with other contractual, legal and regulatory obligations and duties.

Our success is dependent on efficiently matching candidates to clients’ vacancies. In this context we use artificial intelligence (AI) provided by Textkernel (“TK”), a third party based in the EU as this assists our recruitment consultants perform the search and match of proposed candidates with client job vacancies more efficiently. The benefit of the AI search capability is that it supports our recruitment consultants to search more CVs and match personal data against clients’ job vacancies faster, ignoring irrelevant data.

Our recruitment consultants are presented with a list of proposed candidates that are potentially suitable for a client’s vacancy but it does not lead to automated decision-making. Our recruitment consultants decide which candidates to shortlist for a specific client’s job, based on their expertise, knowledge of the job market, insight into the client’s business and requirements for the role, candidate discussions and other relevant criteria. Clients’ (through their hiring personnel) decide which candidates to select for interview (if any). Our clients’ hiring personnel (not our AI tool) make the final decision on which candidate to select for their job (if any) and ultimately to proceed to hire/engage/employ the candidate.

If you would like more information about our AI tool and/or if you wish to object to the processing of your personal data by our AI tool contact: [email protected]

If you object to the processing of your personal data by our AI tool our recruitment consultants will continue to provide work finding services using other methods to search for job opportunities for you. The personal data of candidates who are no longer available for work, not actively seeking a job, have recently commenced permanent employment or who object the processing of their personal data by AI, will be deleted by our AI service provider.

Change of Purpose

We will only use your Personal Data for the purposes for which we collected it (e.g. the provision of work finding services if you are a candidate or to consider you for employment if you are a job applicant), unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose.

If we need to use your Personal Data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.

We may process your Personal Data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law. Where this is the case, we will comply with the rules contained in this Statement as well as in the relevant legislation.

Transferring your Personal Data outside of Europe

Robert Half is part of an international group of companies operating globally. We may share some of your Personal Data with our group companies, including Protiviti, a consultancy firm, our parent company Robert Half International Inc., based in the United States, and other group or third party companies within or outside the European Economic Area (EEA), who may use and process your Personal Data for similar purposes as described in this Privacy Notice, such as client or suppliers.

The data protection laws outside Europe may not provide an equivalent level of protection to those inside Europe and in these circumstances, we will take steps to ensure that your Personal Data is adequately protected, secure, kept confidential and that we have a lawful basis for the transfer.

Our group companies have entered into Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission and UK Information Commissioner as providing personal data with equivalent protection that personal data has when it is processed within UK/EEA. If we transfer your personal to third party recipients located outside the UK, EEA or in a location that does not have adequacy status, we will require the recipients to sign the standard contract clauses containing approved appropriate additional safeguards and when required, we will incorporate adequate technical and organisational measures to protect the data from surveillance and monitoring by public authorities in the third country. All third party recipients of personal data (including based in the EEA/UK) will be required to sign a contract agreeing to process personal data in accordance with our instructions, treat the data as confidential and keep it secure.

Disclosing your Personal Data to 3rd Parties

To the extent necessary or appropriate, Robert Half may disclose your Personal Data to external 3rd Parties (who are not members of the Robert Half group of companies) in the following circumstances:

  • to our clients in the context of private employment mediation (temporary employment and/or recruitment).
  • to our customers in the context of social elections, in accordance with the restrictions of the applicable legislation. In particular, the following information can be passed on to the customer: your name, your (e-mail) address, your date of birth, your status, your period of employment with the customer as well as your national register number (if this is necessary to identify in case of electronic voting).
  • to companies and individuals we employ to perform business functions and services on our behalf. Examples of service providers include: providing payroll services to enable us to pay our employees and temporary workers who work on client premises; background screening and verification services; data storage facilities including in the US and the Cloud; hosting our Web servers; managing job posting applications; analyzing data and producing statistics and legal, accounting, audit and other professional services.
  • To companies that perform screening for us. Examples of such services include: screening against terrorism and other sanction lists, screening of your background and investigations requested by certain customers. Such screenings take place only to the extent permitted by law.
  • to government agencies including: Police and other law enforcement agencies; regulatory and supervisory authorities; credit reference agencies and 3rd parties performing sanctions and terrorism checks.
  • to comply with applicable laws, the service of legal process, or if we reasonably believe that such action is necessary to: (a) comply with the law requiring such disclosure; (b) protect the rights or property of Robert Half or its group companies; (c) prevent a crime, protect national security or for fraud detection or prevention; or (d) protect the personal safety of individuals using our website or members of the public.
  • to 3rd parties to whom we may choose to sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business or our assets. Alternatively, we may seek to acquire other businesses or merge with them. If a change happens to our business, we will let you know.
  • to IT consultants carrying out testing and development work on our IT systems, service providers who we may appoint as data processors and to other service providers who may be based outside the EEA.

Where applicable, we will impose appropriate contractual, security, confidentiality and other obligations on to 3rd party service providers and processors we have appointed, based on the nature of the services they provide to us. We will only permit them to process your Personal Data in accordance with the law and our instructions. We do not allow them to use your Personal Data for their own purposes and when our relationship ends we will ensure your Personal Data is retained for the period we instruct, and securely returned or destroyed (or anonymized so that you no longer can be identified).

Some of these 3rd parties are also controllers responsible for processing your Personal Data for their purposes, for example, the local tax authority is a controller for tax purposes. We may not be able to impose obligations or restrictions on these controllers in connection with how they process your Personal Data.

The above mentioned third parties may be located both within and outside the EEA. In the latter case, we will take the necessary measures as described above.

Keeping your Personal Data Secure

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your Personal Data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your Personal Data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to do so.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected Personal Data breaches and we will notify you and the applicable supervisory authority of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

How long we Retain your Personal Data

Robert Half will retain your Personal Data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes that we collected it for. TThis means we will keep your personal data throughout the period of your relationship with us and whilst we are providing you with work finding services, administering a job application and keeping in contact with clients and hiring organisations and after our relationship ends.

If you no longer wish to receive our services you can request us to delete your Personal Data from our Candidate database. When we have deleted your data, we may retain your name and email address on our suppression list until you apply for another job or ask us to provide work finding services (we will check with you before removing your data from our suppression list). Subject to the services we have provided, we may continue to retain some of your personal data for legal, compliance, accounting and tax purposes and other legitimate business purposes.

Where there is no retention period stated in law, we determine the appropriate retention period for Personal Data by considering the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the Personal Data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of the data, the purposes for which we process it and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

In some circumstances we may anonymize your Personal Data (so that it can no longer be associated with you and we cannot identify you). We do this for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this anonymized data indefinitely without further notice to you.

You can request more details of the retention periods applicable to your personal data by contacting us at: [email protected].

You have the right to:

Make a Data Subject Access Request to access your Personal Data at any time. This enables you to receive a copy of the Personal Data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.

Request correction of the Personal Data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate Personal Data we hold about you corrected, although we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.

Request erasure / deletion / removal of your Personal Data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove your Personal Data where we do not have a valid reason to continue to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your Personal Data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing, where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your Personal Data to comply with local law. Please Note: we may not always be able to comply with your request for erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.

Object to processing of your Personal Data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a 3rd party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your Personal Data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.

Request restriction of processing of your Personal Data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your Personal Data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to process it.

Data Portability / Request the transfer of your Personal Data to you or to a 3rd party. We will assist you with this transfer to a 3rd party either by transferring your Personal Data for you or by providing you with a copy in a machine-readable format.

We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

We want to ensure we keep your Personal Data accurate and up to date. In addition to your legal rights, you may ask us to make changes or request a copy of your Personal Data informally, by contacting your local Robert Half branch.

Additional information, Response Times and Fees

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your Personal Information (or to exercise any of your other rights or when you make an informal request). For example, we may request additional Data or request a copy of your identity document. This is a security measure to ensure that Personal Data is not disclosed to any person other than the individual who has the right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to help us locate your data and to speed up our response.

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. It may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

You will not have to pay a fee to exercise any of these rights. However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

We have set out a short description of main ways we will collect, store, process, share and disclose your Personal Data and the legal bases we rely on to do so. We have also identified what our legitimate interests are, where appropriate.

We will only use your Personal Data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your Personal Data in the following circumstances:

  • to fulfil a contract we are about to enter into or have entered into with you (GDPR Article 6(1)(b));
  • where it is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests (GDPR Article 6(1)(f));
  • when it is necessary for compliance with a legal or regulatory obligation (GDPR Article 6(1)(c)); and
  • when you consent (GDPR Article 6(1)(a)).

A legitimate interest is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information in conducting and managing our business. We will consider and balance any potential impact on you and your legal rights when we process your Personal Data for our legitimate interests. We do not use your Personal Data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required for compliance with a legal or regulatory obligation or permitted to by law).

Marketing Messages

However, where we are providing you with work finding services, you will receive email marketing communications from us even if you have not given us consent as we rely on the ‘soft opt in’ form of consent.

We will ask you for consent to send your direct marketing communications via email. We have established an email preference center where you can view and make decisions about your email marketing preferences and opt out of receiving email marketing from us at any time.

You may receive marketing communications from us if you provided us with your details when you entered a competition or registered with us at a job fair, promotional or networking event or attended a training course and you have given us consent to send you marketing. If you give us consent, we may also use your identity, contact details, technical data, usage data and profile data to form a view and decide which services may of interest or relevant for you.

You have the right to withdraw your consent to marketing at any time by:

  • Visiting our website;
  • Following the opt out links contained in our marketing email messages;
  • Following the opt out process described in our text marketing messages;
  • Sending an email with "UNSUBSCRIBE ME" in the subject field to: [email protected].

Opting out of receiving marketing messages does not apply to:

  • Personal Data that you have provided to us as a result of your request for work finding services;
  • Personal Data that you have provided to us in connection with the performance of a contract between us;
  • Job alerts sent to you through the website in response to your request to receive specific job details. You can select your preferences in the Job Search section and you can stop receiving these alerts at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe link within the job alert email; and
  • Job alert emails which you will receive from our recruitment consultants which match your job search criteria confirmed with you during our Candidate Registration process. If you no longer wish to receive working finding services please contact us at: [email protected]
