Legitimate interest of SEAM Group as the Administrator of personal data 

Legitimate interest is one of the legal grounds provided for in Art. 6 sec. 1 GDPR, which assumes that there are situations in which the Personal Data Controllermay perform specific processing of Personal Data. Such legitimate interests that we use at SEAM Group include: 

  • Possibility of pursuing claims or defending against them. Promoting SEAM Group, sending marketing information. 
  • Implementation of cooperation agreements with customers and suppliers. 
  • Conducting negotiations, discussions with potential customers 
  • Conducting recruitment for projects carried out for SEAM Group’s customers  
  • Handling inquiries sent to SEAM Group – providing answers to Users. 

In the event of contact with the User in order to provide an answer, the legal basis for the processing of Personal Data is the legitimate interest of SEAM Group as the Controller of Personal Data provided on the contact form (Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR). The legitimate interest is manifested in the possibility of responding to the inquiry sent, providing the User with a comprehensive answer. Without the processing of Personal Data, in particular contact data, we will not be able to provide an answer, and thus, help in resolving an issue indicated in the inquiry. 

IV. STORING OF PERSONAL DATA  

The processing of personal data generally continues until the purpose for which the Personal Data was obtained and processed and stored, for the purpose of achieving it, ceases to exist. After achieving the goal or its termination, SEAM Group removes all personal data obtained from the User. However, there are situations in which SEAM Group stores Personal Data even if the purpose of processing has been achieved or will no longer be achieved. This is due to legal requirements or business needs.  
Importantly, the provisions of the GDPR make it possible to show the exact duration of the storage of Personal Data (days / weeks / months / years) and to indicate the criteria for data storage for a given period of time, e.g. “for the period of limitation of the User’s potential claims against SEAM Group”, “until withdrawal consent to the processing of Personal Data “.

  • In connection with cooperation with suppliers, customers 

 V. TRANSFER OF PERSONAL DATA 

There are situations in which SEAM Group transfers the User’s Personal Data to other external entities – companies, entrepreneurs, or public institutions. The transfer of Personal Data results from: 

  • Provisions of law requiring the transfer of data to a specific public institution (police, court, prosecutor’s office, etc.); 
  • SEAM Group’s internal needs regarding obtaining a specific service to support the achievement of business goals (entities providing legal advisory services, legalization of foreigners’ stay, booking accommodation in hotels, sending mass-mailings, etc.). 

The transfer of Personal Data takes place in the form of sharing or entrusting them. Below is an explanation of the differences between the indicated forms. 

Sharing Personal Data 

Entrusting Personal Data 

Enstrusting Personal Data consists of transferring data to another entity based on one of the legal grounds specified in the provisions of the GDPR – specifically: Art. 6 Sec. 1. i.e.
User’s consent (point a) 
Performance of the contract between the User and SEAM Group (point b) 
Provision of law authorizing or obliging SEAM Group to provide Personal Data (point c) 
SEAM Group’s legitimate interest as the Personal Data Controllerresulting from the provisions of law (point f). 
Note: other grounds: vital interests (point d) and acting in the public interest (point e) do not apply to SEAM Group, as it does not conduct activities for which it obtains and processes Personal Data on their basis. 

Entrustment is the transfer of Personal Data based on Art. 28 GDPR – SEAM Group, as the Administrator of Personal Data, transfers them to another entity by concluding a special so-called contracts for entrusting the processing of personal data. 

SEAM Group provides or entrusts Personal Data to the following entities: 

Sharing Personal Data 

Entrusting Personal Data 

SEAM Group customers (in the scope of contact details of representatives

Entities providing mass marketing e-mail / SMS mailing services 

SEAM Group’s potential customers (in the scope of contact details of representatives

Entities providing services that conduct certification exams at the end of courses and training 

Suppliers (in the scope of contact details of representatives

Training providers 

Public administration bodies authorized under the provisions of law 

Entities intermediating in the organization of events (owners of portals for registering for events) 

SEAM Group provides Users’ Personal Data to its customers in connection with their recruitment for the purpose of employment, then delegation to provide services under the outsourcing of specialists or entire teams. SEAM Group has concluded appropriate agreements and contracts specifying the rules for disclosing Personal Data. Each User has the right to access information to which customer Personal data has been made available on the terms set out in Chapter V of this Policy. 

Transfer of personal data between SEAM Group companies 

SEAM Group is a company that has Subsidiaries, in particular SEAM Group Europe. Due to the fact that the Subsidiaries use IT systems belonging to SEAM Group for organizational facilitation in the implementation of recruitment and marketing purposes, managing relations with customers, suppliers, etc., SEAM Group transfers Users’ Personal Data to its Subsidiaries. The transfer of Personal Data to subsidiaries is carried out pursuant to art. 6 sec. 1 point f GDPR, i.e. the legitimate interest of SEAM Group as the Personal Data Administrator. The legitimate interest manifests itself in the following matters: 

  • Search for User-Candidates by SEAM Group and its Subsidiary for a joint project for a customer. 
  • Joint negotiations with a potential customer in order to conclude a cooperation agreement. 
  • Joint search for a subcontractor to assist in the implementation of the project for the customer, which is run by the employees of SEAM Group and its subsidiaries. 

The transfer of Personal Data to the Subsidiaries takes place by enabling the employees of these companies to access the CRM system belonging to SEAM Group. And the use of one, common CRM system for the abovementioned purposes is the so-called co-administration of Personal data, i.e. SEAM Group and its Subsidiaries jointly decide on the purposes (for what?) and methods (how?) of processing Users’ Personal Data. In order to protect Personal Data, SEAM Group has concluded special agreements with its subsidiaries – agreements for the co-administration of Personal Data. In the context of Subsidiaries based in a country not belonging to the European Union or the European Economic Area, SEAM Group concluded additional contractual clauses with such subsidiaries securing the processed data and meeting the requirements of Art. 44-49 GDPR. These clauses are concluded due to the fact that in the case of subsidiaries based in a country outside the European Union or the European Economic Area, the rules set out in the GDPR do not apply to Personal Data processed by such entities.

Polish Data Protection Commissioner (Urząd Ochrony Danych Osobowych) Stawki 2, 00-193 Warsaw,   www.uodo.gov.pl, e-mail: kancelaria@uodo.gov.pl, telephone number: 606-950-000  

None 

The implementation of each of the above rights takes place at the User’s request sent to daneosobowe@seamgroup.com SEAM Group examines the submitted application and sends a reply within 1 month from the date of receipt of the application together with an indication of the result of the examination – what specific actions have been taken with the estimated time for the processing of the entire application, if specific activities require a longer processing time.   
SEAM Group reserves the right to respond to a request for the exercise of any right later than the abovementioned date: up to two months (resulting from Article 12 (3) of the GDPR), due to the number of inquiries or the complex nature of the inquiry sent. By complexity, we understand the need to compile data from many IT systems or the need to consult more than one person from a department or departments in order to obtain information that is the subject of the application. In each case, SEAM Group undertakes to inform the User about this fact, providing justification.   
SEAM Group also reserves that it may refuse to exercise any of the rights specified in Art. 15 – 22 of the GDPR in a situation where the User submits applications in a continuous, excessive manner, without any justification. Each time SEAM Group will justify the refusal to exercise the right indicated in the application. By persistent and excessive nature, we mean sending subsequent requests with a similar request to the original one, despite the examination and notification of its processing, e.g. The User sends the request for access to information, SEAM Group executes it – it sends a summary of the information it has, and the User sends the second and the same request again, without explaining the reason for the repeated request for information. 

Under the right to withdraw consent, the User may at any time withdraw consent to further processing of Personal Data for purposes that require consent, provided that the withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawful use of Personal Data in activities based on consent before its withdrawal. The following chapters provide details on how to withdraw consent for a specific purpose (recruitment, marketing, competitions, etc.) 

Under the right to access information, the User is entitled to obtain the following information in the form of a report or statement: 

  • Purpose of processing Personal Data 
  • Categories of Personal Data – what data we process, e.g. name, surname, telephone number; 
  • Legal bases for data processing 
  • Information on recipients or categories of recipients of data – to whom (a person, company, institution) this data may be transferred; 
  • Information on the right to request from SEAM Group the rectification of data, their deletion or limitation of their processing and to object to specific data processing; 
  • Information on the possibility of lodging a complaint to the President of the Personal Data Protection Office; 
  • Information about the data source, if the data has not been obtained directly from the User – indication of the person or company or institution that provided the Personal Data; 
  • On the use of profiling: on what terms it is undertaken, what may be the consequences of profiling for the User 

SEAM Group also informs that each subsequent copy of Personal Data is associated with a fee resulting from the costs incurred in connection with the creation of another copy of Personal Data. SEAM Group notifies the User about the costs after assessing the scope of the information indicated in the application.  

With regards to the right to delete Personal Data, SEAM Group deletes not only data obtained from the User himself, but also information obtained as a result of the analyzes, e.g. information about the User’s interests in specific categories of information, products, services based on the User’s-consumer activities; information about the professional experience of the User-candidate obtained as a result of the interview, the candidate’s own assessment based on the course of the interview.   
Exceptions to the implementation of the law, shown in the table, result from applicable law. SEAM Group analyzes each case of an exception individually for each case – the relationship between SEAM Group and the User.  
What is crucial, this right shall always be executed. Legal or internal – business requirements are only factors that extend the full implementation of the request for the removal of Personal Data. 

The right to object to the further processing of Personal Data is that the User indicates that he does not want his Personal Data to be used for purposes that are pursued as legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 sec. 1 point f GDPR. After receiving the objection, SEAM Group analyzes whether the objection may be taken into account or whether there are grounds to reject it, as it is not an absolute right. There may be situations in which the User’s right to object to further data processing will make it impossible for SEAM Group to achieve the goal. Examples of the purposes of processing Personal Data in a legitimate interest, where the objection may be disregarded: 

  • Intention to pursue claims against the User or defense against potential claims on the part of the User. 
  • The User is a candidate recruited by a SEAM Group customer, recruitment interviews are ongoing, and the User does not want his Personal Data to be still processed. 

Each case is analyzed individually. The result of the analysis, together with the decision and justification for not considering the objection, is sent to the User by SEAM Group as part of the examination of the submitted application. 

If the analysis shows that SEAM Group has no prerequisites for further processing of Personal Data, the objection is accepted and SEAM Group deletes the Personal Data. 

With regards to the right not to be subject to decisions based solely on automated processing, including profiling – it is important that no automated activities are performed at SEAM Group. Employees compile Personal Data, as discussed in more detail in Chapter XII of this Policy. Typical automated processing activities are e.g. carrying out a creditworthiness assessment. 

VII. PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA IN RECRUITMENT PROCESSES  

As SEAM Group, we recruit for our own needs and for customers, to whom we provide specialist delivery services or specialist teams, so-called body leasing. Therefore, we would like to inform you that the data of the User – candidate (hereinfrom in this chapter: candidate) may also be processed by SEAM Group customers, as mentioned in the content of the job advertisement, indicating that we are recruiting for the customer. 

The legal basis for the acquisition and processing of Personal Data for recruitment by SEAM Group is the candidate’s consent (Article 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR). At the same time, we would like to inform you that by agreeing to the recruitment processes, this consent will apply to both recruitment for a specific position included in the job advertisement, and for future recruitment for similar positions tailored to the profile and professional experience. As a candidate, you can withdraw your consent to further processing at any time, in accordance with Chapter VIII of this Policy, which, however, does not affect the lawful use of Personal Data in activities carried out on the basis of consent before its withdrawal. 

However, it is important to emphasize that there is a specific scope of Personal Data obtained from the candidate, which results directly from the law – art. 221 § 1 of the Labor Code, which fills in art. 6 sec. 1 point c GDPR – a legal provision authorizing or obliging to obtain and process Personal Data. These are the following data: 

  • (First name(-es) and surname; 
  • Date of birth; 
  • Contact details provided by the User in the CV / cover letter; 
  • Education; 
  • Vocational qualifications; 
  • The history of previous employment. 

Other data, incl. regarding the assessment of the candidate’s competences from previous employers, public image, SEAM Group acquires on the basis of the candidate’s voluntary consent.  

As far as the sources of obtaining Personal Data for the purpose of recruitment processes are concerned, these are the following: 

  • Candidate applications submitted in response to job advertisements posted on portals such as pracuj.pl and on our website SEAM Group (https://www.seamgroup.com/about-us/careers/)
  • Candidate’s referral system.   
    In this situation, the recommending person enters his data and the data of the recommended person and places a CV under the form with the User’s data. SEAM Group verifies the CV of the recommended person, received from the recommending person, in terms of the consent of the recommended person to the processing of Personal Data that meets the requirements of the GDPR. If the consent has been concluded, SEAM Group has the right to use this data for recruitment processes. 
  • Direct contact with the candidate via social networking sites LinkedIn, Goldenline (so-called headhunting).  
    The SEAM Group recruiting employee contacts the candidate directly from LinkedIn / Goldenline level, sends a request for the candidate’s interest in the presented job offer and further contact. After receiving information about the interest in the offer, the employee registers the candidate in the CRM system by entering only the first and last name and contact details available on the candidate’s profile on LinkedIn / Goldenline, generates a special form to obtain consent for recruitment processes, while the recruitment is continued. Once the candidate accepts this special form, SEAM Group is entitled to carry out future recruitments – sending the candidate new job offers. 
  • CV sent by the candidate on his / her own initiative via the form on SEAM Group web site

Recruitment for the needs of customers  

As mentioned at the beginning of the chapter, SEAM Group recruits for its own needs and for its customers. Recruitment for customers is carried out: 

  • By posting a job advertisement with information about recruitment for the customer. 
  • Contact with the candidate already registered in our CRM database, in connection with participation in the previous recruitment, with the consent given to SEAM Group for the processing of Personal Data for the purpose of carrying out future recruitment processes. 
  • Direct contact with the potential candidate via social networking sites LinkedIn, Goldenline (so-called headhunting). 

Generally, SEAM Group first recruits, conducts interviews and technical tests (verification of practical skills). The result of the interview is a decision whether the candidate will be offered to the customer or not. If so – the recruiting employee prepares a CV in a special format, consisting of the candidate’s data such as: name, date of birth, description of education, work experience, completed courses and training.   
The CV prepared in this way is forwarded to the customer by an employee representing SEAM Group in contacts with the customer. The customer verifies the candidate presented and decides whether they wish to conduct an interview. If so – the customer arranges an interview with the candidate through the SEAM Group employee responsible for contact with the customer. After the interview, the customer decides whether or not to hire a candidate.  

In the context of Personal Data provided to the customer and processed by him, the following issues are relevant: 

  • SEAM Group is the Administrator of personal data – it acquires data and processes it for the purpose of the recruitment process for work for the customer. The processing of Personal Data is based on the candidate’s consent to recruit (Article 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR). 
  • Transfer of Personal Data to the customer based on the legitimate interest of SEAM Group as the Personal Data Controller(Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR) in the form of their disclosure. The legitimate interest is manifested in ensuring the implementation of the cooperation agreement concluded with the customer for the preparation and delegation of a candidate-specialist or a team of candidates-specialists to perform the work specified in the cooperation agreement. Importantly, at the very beginning of the recruitment process, the candidate receives information that the recruitment is carried out for the customer’s needs, to perform work for them. The aforementioned consent applies to situations when SEAM Group verifies the submitted application.  
  • The customer becomes a separate administrator of personal data, independently provides the appropriate legal basis for the processing of the received personal data of the candidate. It obtains consent (or provides another legal basis from the GDPR) and sends an information clause to meet the GDPR requirement of art. 13-14.   
  • The personal data of the candidate recruited to the customer is stored by SEAM Group for a period of 2 years counted from the end of the recruitment. Importantly, this only applies to candidates rejected by the customer – who have not been hired.  
  • It results from the provisions in the contracts with each customer: a clause concerning the prohibition of re-offering the candidate and his professional profile for 2 years, in a situation where the candidate has already participated in the recruitment completed with a negative result. 
  • The candidate always has the right to withdraw consent to the processing of Personal Data, without affecting the actions taken before its withdrawal. As for the withdrawal of consent for SEAM Group (i.e. recruitment for SEAM Group’s internal needs), the procedure is described in Chapter VIII of this Policy. However, when it comes to the customer, the candidate contacts the customer using contact details provided in the information clause. 
  • The candidate may object to the transfer of Personal Data by SEAM Group to the customer, the processing of his data by the customer. The objection will be considered by SEAM Group, the data will be deleted, however this is equal to the candidate’s resignation from participation in the recruitment process. this means the candidate’s resignation from participation in the recruitment process. 

An important issue in recruiting for customers are additional requirements on the part of some customers to carry out the so-called background check. This process consists of verifying the information provided by the candidate in the CV: information about education, work experience, completed courses, training, language skills (level of proficiency in foreign languages). Verifications are carried out by SEAM Group in accordance with the requirements specified in the cooperation agreements. They are followed by, among others: 

  • Certificates and diplomas, 
  • References from previous employers 

In addition to the above, the customer may require a background check extended to include information on criminal record, credit history, and financial matters (debt). In Poland, there is a general prohibition of verification of the abovementioned information, except for the exceptions specified directly in Polish law (banking law, provisions on the rules for obtaining information on a clean criminal record, etc.). Therefore, in contracts with customers, SEAM Group agrees that the background check of the information contained in the CV is carried out by SEAM Group, and in the field of no criminal record, credit history, and financial matters, the customer conducts the background check on the candidates.  

Transfer of personal data between SEAM Group companies with regards to recruitment purposes 

Recruitment processes are conducted by SEAM Group independently, however, there are situations where SEAM Group seeks and recruits a candidate together with its subsidiaries. Such situations are related to recruitment for customers, especially those with extensive structures – with branches in many countries, which means that work for customers is carried out jointly, the supply of specialists or teams of specialists is carried out jointly. Joint recruitment allows the Subsidiaries to have access to the Personal Data of candidates in the CRM system belonging to SEAM Group. 

In the context of the GDPR, the candidate’s Personal Data is shared with the customer. The legal basis for disclosure is a legitimate interest (Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR) resulting from the concluded body leasing contract with the customer, in which the customer requires the transfer of Personal Data in order to verify the candidates presented and their professional competences, whether they are adequate for the service that the Specialists would perform.

VIII. PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA FOR MARKETING PURPOSES

The rules for obtaining such consent have been described in the chapter VI points 1-2 of this Policy. The consent may be withdrawn anytime taking into consideration rules defined in the chapter VIII of this Policy. 

User’s consent for processing personal data (Art 6 (1) (a) of GDPR) is the legal basis for sending newsletters. It can be granted while providing one’s e-mail address in the newsletter subscription form or gated content as well as by checking a box while completing a contact or recruitment form. Providing the e-mail address in the newsletter subscription form is a clear affirmative action of consenting to processing personal data as defined in the Art 4 (11) of GDPR regarding the definition of consent as well as connected 32nd motif of GDPR explaining the clear affirmative action. 

According to the abovementioned motif, a clear affirmative action includes informing SEAM Group that User’s e-mail address provided in the form may be used for sending newsletter that includes SEAM Group’s promotional information. It is one of acceptable forms of consenting to using provided e-mail address for the defined purpose (such forms also include checking a box located near the content of the consent). 

Consent to sending unsolicited marketing information, according to Art. 10 of rules for electronically supplied services and Art. 172 (1) of Telecommunication Act, is provided by the user independently and separately by checking a dedicated box located near the content of the consent. 

In order to obtain some materials uploaded to SEAM Group’s website, it may be necessary to complete a form that requires providing personal data. Such data will be processed according to the consent (Art 6 (1) (a) of GDRP) expressed by a clear affirmative action. If the User wishes to receive other marketing information, he/she may state so by checking a relevant box. If the User will not state so, it means that he/she is not interested in receiving other information thus SEAM Group will not send it.
