Whose Personal Data Do We Collect?

When you visit our website or use our app, we collect data related to the type of device, browser, and how you use it. This helps us optimize our services on the website or app, aiming to make it more user-friendly and better serve you. We do this only with:

  • Your explicit consent
  • To properly execute the closed agreement and/or terms of use

What Personal Data Do We Process from Candidates?

To best perform our services, it is necessary for us to process data. Some data are mandatory to process in order for us to provide our services. We process additional data to better tailor our services to your needs, taking into account the relevance of the data to our services. Specifically, this includes – but is not limited to – the following data about you as a candidate:

  • Name, email address, and other contact details
  • Date of birth, gender, nationality, social security number, age, and photograph
  • Website data such as IP address, browser type, and device type
  • Bank and payment details
  • Identity data from passports, residence permits, or ID cards
  • Driver’s license
  • Educational qualifications
  • Employment history
  • Financial situation
  • References or certificates
  • Certificate of Conduct
  • Data from industry-specific or professional registers
  • Personal declarations regarding integrity or consent
  • Social media or other public sources
  • Other data that may be relevant in assessing your suitability as a candidate
  • Personal data provided via phone or email
  • Additional data provided via contact form, profile creation, or during screening

Depending on the type of screening, we store data from your ID document. Your employer stores the ID document during a recruitment and selection process to verify your eligibility to work in the Netherlands. If you do not start work with the employer within four weeks (after the application process), the ID document is deleted. With your consent, the employer may keep this for another year.

Special Categories of Personal Data

When it occurs that we process such data, it pertains to a part of the screening. We do not process data without explicit consent in any way. Our software solution enables a candidate to retrieve and/or validate their own data. This data is firstly available to the candidate, who then decides whether the data may be shared with the employer/client. We only process data on behalf of third parties, also known as the data controller.

Purpose of Data Processing

We process personal data of individuals who are screened by third parties (employers/clients or companies) with whom we do business. Here, the candidate takes full control. We enable the candidate to retrieve their own data and, with explicit consent, make it available to third parties. By third parties, we mean the employer or organization that has set up the screening for the candidate.

Additionally, we process data to:

  • Communicate clearly with you
  • Handle feedback or complaints, aiming to optimize our service and better serve you
  • Handle payments resulting from a closed agreement
  • Potentially keep data available for a future screening obtained with consent and based on the correct legal basis
  • Provide information and/or offers about our services, better tailored to your needs
  • Based on necessary and/or voluntarily consented cookies and similar technical data regarding cookie usage
  • Send commercial offers and/or newsletters, only when you have signed up for them
  • For management purposes including; management information, conducting internal controls and corporate security, and performing audits and accounting controls
  • Collect anonymized statistical data and secure the service
  • Compliance with legal regulations such as a legal obligation to retain certain data

Victoria ID has implemented appropriate security measures and procedures to protect your personal data from loss, destruction, alteration, or unauthorized disclosure and access. We do our utmost to secure the data, but cannot guarantee this. We strive to limit access to personal data only to those who should be involved. Confidentiality is enforced among those who have access.

Information for Parents
Victoria ID is aware of the importance of protecting children's privacy, especially in the online environment. Our services are generally not intended for children under 16 years, unless permission is given by a parent or guardian for the collection, release, or use of personal data. Our policy is to never knowingly collect or store information about individuals under sixteen, except in connection with the execution of a business service agreement. It is advisable to monitor the online activities of children. If we have collected personal data from a person under the age of 16, please contact us.

How Long Do We Retain Personal Data?

Victoria ID retains data no longer than strictly necessary.

To Whom Do We Disclose Personal Data?

Personal data is only disclosed to third parties when necessary for the execution of an agreement or to comply with a legal obligation, such as employment. We enter into a processor agreement with the organizations we work with to ensure an equivalent level of security and confidentiality of personal data.

What Are Your Privacy Rights?

We ensure at all times that the candidate retains control over their personal data. If anything is incorrect, redundant, or incomplete, you can contact us to have it amended or deleted. More information about all your rights regarding your data can be found on the website of the national supervisory authority, known as the "Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens".
