Privacy policy for recruitment using Teamtailor

The service for handling recruitment and simplifying the hiring process (the "Service") is powered by Teamtailor on behalf of WEL Networks ("Controller" “we” “us” etc.). It is important that the persons using the Service ("Users”) feel safe with, and are informed about, how we handle User's personal data in the recruitment process. We strive to maintain the highest possible standard regarding the protection of personal data. We process, manage, use, and protect User's Personal Data in accordance with this Privacy Policy ("Privacy Policy").

1. General

WEL Networks (WEL) are the controller in accordance with current privacy legislation, including under New Zealand law. The Users’ personal data is processed with the purpose of managing and facilitating recruitment of employees to our business.

2. Collection of personal data

WEL are responsible for the processing of the personal data that the Users contributes to the Service, or for the personal data that we in other ways collects with regards to the Service.

When and how we collect personal data

WEL collects personal data about Users from Users when Users;

  • make an application through the Service or otherwise, adding personal data about themselves either personally or by using a third-party source such as Facebook or LinkedIn; and
  • use the Service to connect with our staff, adding personal data about themselves either personally or by using a third-party source such as Facebook or LinkedIn.
  • provides identifiable data in the chat (provided through the website that uses the Service) and such data is of relevance to the application procedure;

We collect data from third parties, such as Facebook, LinkedIn and through other public sources. This is referred to as “Sourcing” and is manually performed by our employees or automatically in the Service.

In some cases, existing WEL employees can make recommendations about potential applicants. Such employees will add personal data about such potential applicants. In the cases where this is made, the potential applicant is considered a User in the context of this Privacy Policy and will be informed about the processing.

The types of personal data collected and processed  

 The categories of personal data that can be collected through the Service can be used to identify natural persons from names, e-mails, pictures and videos, information from Facebook and LinkedIn-accounts, answers to questions asked through the recruiting, titles, education and other information that the User or others have provided through the Service. Only data that is relevant for the recruitment process is collected and processed.

Purpose and lawfulness of processing  

The purpose of the collecting and processing of personal data is to manage recruiting. The lawfulness of the processing of personal data is our legitimate interest to simplify and facilitate recruitment.

Personal data that is processed with the purpose of aggregated analysis or market research is always made anonymous. Such personal data cannot be used to identify a particular User. Thus, such data is not considered personal data.

The consent of the data subject  

The User consents to the processing of their personal data with the purpose of WELs handling any recruitment. The User consents that personal data is collected through the Service, when Users;

  • make an application through the Service, adding personal data about themselves either personally or by using a third-party source as Facebook or LinkedIn, and that WEL may use external sourcing-tools to add additional information; and
  • when they use the Service to connect to WEL’s recruitment department, adding personal data about themselves either personally or by using a third-party source such as Facebook or LinkedIn.

The User also consents to WEL collecting publicly available information about the User and compiles such information for use in the recruitment purposes.

The User consents to the personal data being collected in accordance with the above a) and b) and will be processed according to the below sections; Storage and transfer and How long the personal data will be processed.

The User has the right to withdraw his or her consent at any time, by contacting WEL using the contact details listed under section 9. Using this right may however, means that the User cannot apply for a specific job or otherwise use the Service.

3. Users’ rights

Users have the right to request information about the personal data that is processed by us, by notifying us in writing, using the contact details under paragraph 10 below. Users have the right to one (1) copy of the processed personal data which belongs to them without any charge. For further demanded copies, WEL has a right to charge a reasonable fee on the basis of the administrative costs for such demand.


Users have the right to, if necessary, rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning that User, via a written request, using the contact details in paragraph 10 below.  Evidence supporting any requested change may be required.


The User has the right to demand deletion or restriction of processing, and the right to object to processing based on legitimate interest under certain circumstances.


The User has the right to revoke any consent to processing that has been given by the User to WEL. Using this right may however, mean that the User can not apply for a specific job or otherwise use the Service.


The User has under certain circumstances a right to data portability, which means a right to get the personal data and transfer these to another controller as long as this does not negatively affect the rights and freedoms of others.


User has the right to lodge a complaint to the supervisory authority regarding the processing of personal data relating to him or her, if the User considers that the processing of personal data infringes the legal framework of privacy law.

4. How Long

WEL will keep your information, unless requested to update or remove by you, for a period not longer than two (2) years. 

After two (2) years, the User acknowledges they will be notified and requested to confirm if they wish to have their data removed or continue to allow WEL to keep this information for the purposes of recruitment.

5. Security

We prioritise personal integrity and therefore work actively so that the personal data of the Users are processed with utmost care. We take measures that can be reasonably expected to make sure that the personal data of Users and others are processed safely and in accordance to this Privacy Policy and the GDPR-regulation.

However, transfers of information over the internet and mobile networks can never occur without any risk, so all transfers are made at the own risk of the person transferring the data. It is important that Users also take responsibility to ensure that their data is protected. It is the responsibility of the User that their login information is kept confidential.

6. Transfer of personal data to third party

We will not sell or otherwise transfer Users’ personal data to third parties.

We may transfer Users’ Personal Data to;

  • our contractors and sub-contractors, acting as our Processors and Sub-Processors in accordance with our instructions, for the provision of the Service;
  • authorities or legal advisors in case criminal or improper behaviour is suspected; and
  • authorities, legal advisors or other actors, if required by us according to law or authority’s injunction.

We will only transfer Users’ personal data to third parties that we have confidence in. We carefully choose partners to ensure that the User’s personal data is processed in accordance to current privacy legislation. We cooperate with the following categories of processors of personal data; Teamtailor, who supplies the Service, server and hosting companies, e-mail reference companies, video processing companies, information-sourcing companies, analytical service companies and other companies with regards to supplying the Service.

7. Aggregated data (non-identifiable personal data)

We may share aggregated data to third parties. The aggregated data has in such instances been compiled from information that has been collected through the Service and can, for example, consist of statistics of internet traffic or the geological location for the use of the Service. The aggregated data does not contain any information that can be used to identify individual persons and is thus not personal data.

8. Cookies

When Users use the Service, information about the usage may be stored as cookies. Cookies are passive text files that are stored in the internet browser on the User’s device, such as a computer, mobile phone or tablet, when using the Service. We use cookies to improve the User’s usage of the Service and to gather information about, for example, statistics about the usage of the Service. This is done to secure, maintain and improve the Service. The information that is collected through the cookies can in some instances be personal data and is, in such instances, regulated by our Cookie Policy.

Users can at any time disable the use of cookies by changing the local settings in their devices. Disabling of cookies can affect the experience of the Service, for example disabling some functions in the Service.

9. Changes

We have the right to, at any time, make changes or additions to the Privacy Policy. The latest version of the Privacy Policy will always be available through the Service. A new version is considered communicated to the Users when the User has either received an email informing the User of the new version (using the e-mail stated by the User in connection to the use of the Service) or when the User is otherwise informed of the new Privacy Policy.
