GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is the European privacy regulation aiming to protect all individuals within the European Union from privacy and data breaches in an increasingly data-driven world. It applies to all companies processing and holding data on individuals within the European Union, regardless of the company’s location.
YouCruit has been built with privacy in mind from the get go. All data entered into YouCruit is fully owned and managed by the person who entered that data. Any data shared between entities using the YouCruit platform is only temporary and the owner of the data can revoke or delete the shared data whenever they want.
In practice this means that if a jobseekers send an application to a company, that application will only be available to that company for as long as the jobseeker allows it. If the jobseekers removes the application or deletes their account, all data will also be removed and no company will be able to view their applications again.
With our privacy solution any company using YouCruit don't need to worry about GDPR in regards to data stored on YouCruit as they only have temporary access to it as long as the jobseekers allows it. There's no need to take any extra steps and you can continue to work with YouCruit exactly the same way you do today as long as the data remains on YouCruit.
Any company downloading data from YouCruit takes full responsibility in handling that data themselves in accordance to GDPR and will make sure the privacy rights of the owner of the downloaded data are protected. If you download data and intend to store it, you need to contact the owner of the data and ask for their permission to store and process the downloaded data. You will also need to obtain a DPA agreement with YouCruit.
To obtain a DPA agreement, login as an account owner to your YouCruit company account, click the menu button and then go to the "DPA" page. From here you can agree to the DPA and download a copy if the signed DPA.
